doomtrader -> Small Europe Scenario (12/23/2011 12:27:35 AM)

Currently I'm working on a new scenario which should be included in the future to one of the patches.

This one represent much smaller Europe, with monthly turns, dedicated for the PBEM games.


Here is the first screenshot with initial setting:

I would like to know, how many of you would be interested in checking this.

Really like this and looking forward to it, very impressed by the support for the game so far.

Only game I've PBEMed before has been CEAW and would have preferred it to have been less turns overall (i.e monthly turns rather than fortnightly) so there is more chance to play more games.

Would be really really nice if it also has AI for single player.




Agent S -> RE: Small Europe Scenario (12/24/2011 2:45:52 AM)

Nice work doom,
Time to release the editor???




Rasputitsa -> RE: Small Europe Scenario (12/24/2011 9:02:53 AM)

Certainly would be interested, many games on this subject are so huge that real life means that you will never have the time to work through a whole game. Your proposal looks good.[:)]

Another screenie

Greyshaft -> RE: Small Europe Scenario (12/29/2011 5:39:31 AM)

the map scale reminds me of Avalon Hill Third Reich




Grimnirsson -> RE: Small Europe Scenario (12/29/2011 5:47:11 PM)

Are you still playing consims on the real gaming table Greyshaft? [:)]




doomtrader -> RE: Small Europe Scenario (12/29/2011 7:12:07 PM)

Greyshaft, is it good or bad?




Flaviusx -> RE: Small Europe Scenario (12/29/2011 7:18:37 PM)

It's good, wargamers are big on nostalgia.

Looking forward to this scenario myself.





TPM -> RE: Small Europe Scenario (12/29/2011 8:23:37 PM)

I wasn't interested in Time of Fury until now...I've been looking for a "small scale" European WWII game, similar to "Clash of Steel" (old DOS game) and "Strategic Command". Anyway, I'll be following this with interest, thanks!




doomtrader -> RE: Small Europe Scenario (12/29/2011 8:30:52 PM)

Most probably it won't be possible to create this scenario completely for the first patch but if you guys are interested, please let me know. I can add it as a work in progress. It should be playable but not 100% fun and rather for PBEM.




Wolfe -> RE: Small Europe Scenario (1/4/2012 12:00:20 AM)

Would be very interested in seeing the WIP as part of the first patch. Will give us all chance to give some feedback which I hope may be useful.

Can I assume from the above that the final release will also have AI ?




lparkh -> RE: Small Europe Scenario (1/5/2012 6:06:22 PM)

ditto: like the idea..my interest would be to see it with an AI. I don't have the time for the full scale game. Such a scenario with a good AI would incline me towards buying this game!




macroeconomics -> RE: Small Europe Scenario (1/6/2012 8:39:43 AM)

I'm curious about whether the game engine can go in the other direction - i.e. larger maps. I've seen all those South American countries in the game database, and my mind wanders and thinks about the campaigns in Ethiopia and beyond. Or does the current map scale max out the game engine at this time?




doomtrader -> RE: Small Europe Scenario (1/6/2012 12:33:13 PM)

Theoretically it could be possible to create world map in the scale similar to the one in current campaigns.

However I'm not willing to code AI for such monster :P




Hairog -> RE: Small Europe Scenario (1/7/2012 1:07:54 AM)

Many areas are never going to be used even in a world war scenario. I think it's Empire total war that gives you zones that you go through to get to the areas of contention. You kind of spend the proper time in limbo until you pop out in the other area. Games like HOI3 use the whole world but you don't when you play. Imagine having a battle in New Guinea or Truk or a major battleground in Tunisia ... ridiculous... hey wait a minute. Sometimes history is stranger than fiction.




stone10 -> RE: Small Europe Scenario (1/7/2012 2:39:12 AM)

It would be more interesting if you add pacific theater to the map




Hairog -> RE: Small Europe Scenario (1/7/2012 4:50:18 AM)

Just pretend you commander of the European theatre or if you Axis just Germany. [:)] The scale is too small for a whole earth map...way too small.




doomtrader -> RE: Small Europe Scenario (1/30/2012 10:36:18 AM)

Hi everybody,

Soon after releasing official 1.01 patch, I'm planning to make some extensive test for this scenario.
I'm looking for couple of people who would be willing to play it to the death ;)
Scenario is only 70 turns long, so you will be able to finish it in single player in one evening and PBEM probably within a week if you will be in the same (or similar) time zone.

I would like you to play it as the majors and in the offhand mode (as Switzerland for example), to observe how the AI is doing.
Scenario is more historical than the original campaign, but we would aim it to be balanced especially for PBEM.

If you are interested in early play and testing this, please post in here.

Not good or bad ... just a nostalgic observation, I haven't played Third Reich in some twenty years or so and it bought back my early wargaming memories. Unfortunately here's no time to push around cardboard counters these days [:(]




doomtrader -> RE: Small Europe Scenario (1/30/2012 8:21:44 PM)

Sad but true.
No time and no place, as the kids/cats/dogs are able to destroy even the largest armies within a blink of an eye.

I'd be interested in helping with single player.

Below a series of screenshots from my German gameplay.
I'm really having fun.

bcgames -> RE: Small Europe Scenario (2/22/2012 12:47:43 AM)

Wow! Well done. I am enjoying the play of this game in its current state but I think this scenario may be the optimal application for the game engine. I'm very interested to see how this progresses. It reminds me of an old SPI title...World War II? I can't recall now but I played the heck out of it way back when. Nice.




mbar -> RE: Small Europe Scenario (2/22/2012 2:58:03 AM)

Nice map. It has a similar look as the Commander Europe at War small map.

Looks real good! Can't wait to try it out!
