jakla1027 -> Another expansion? (4/5/2012 1:34:06 PM)

Ok just wondering if anyone has heard of another expansion in the works for Command Ops? Im personally wishing for....

A. Late war expansion Feb.-May 45
B. Sicily & Italy Pack July 43-May45
C. North Africa 1940-43

Thats my wish list, dont know if B & C could be expansions or if they'd have to be whole new games? As for A i think thats a good expansion time frame.

Anywho any news or thoughts on expansions would be great!!![:D]

They're working on a Russian thing, Jakla, so I doubt anything else will be happening as per your wish list. I have the feeling they have real world things eating into their time too at the moment (defence contracts....)....Me, I'm still waiting for some kind of fix to the 'halting, halting, halting' thing.....BUt if the real world is competing then I'm not holding my breath, obviously...




Arimus -> RE: Another expansion? (4/5/2012 8:14:53 PM)

Expansions could be created by anyone with a good knowledge of the editing tools and time. No coding needed. (ie sub'd out)




Huib -> RE: Another expansion? (4/6/2012 3:07:39 PM)

Pieter (Tukker) and I are working on one. Not sure if I'm allowed to tell about it yet though.
Keep posted.

There is more going on behind the scenes then most realize.[sm=innocent0009.gif]

FYI we have a number of expansion packs ( battle packs ) in the works. These include:

  • Knock on All Doors (KOAD) - the German staff solution in lieu of Wacht am Rhine
  • East Front - post Stalingrad ( Title to be advised )
  • West Wall - battles along the westerns front late 44 ( other than Bulge and Market Garden )
  • Legend of the Blitzkrieg (LOTB) - tactical level game focussing on battles from France 1940. This will have 50m terrain grid ize with line platoons and squad support units.


NOTE these are just projects under development. They may or may not actually eventuate with a public release. We are not making any public commitment to release these.

KOAD is progressing well with two thirds of the scenarios done. West Wall is only just starting. East Front is well under way but there is still a bit of mapping to be done, scenarios to be drafted and tested and we have a fair bit of coding to do. LOTB is just starting.

....oh man, I am going to have to change my pants...

"Legend of the Blitzkrieg (LOTB) - tactical level game focussing on battles from France 1940. This will have 50m terrain grid ize with line platoons and squad support units."

This has me excited...the scale...the era...right up my alley.




Howard Mitchell -> RE: Another expansion? (4/7/2012 6:02:22 PM)

Good news indeed!




phoenix -> RE: Another expansion? (4/7/2012 10:23:34 PM)

The platoon thing is VERY interesting. Hope that progresses well.




Deathtreader -> RE: Another expansion? (4/7/2012 11:03:11 PM)



Interesting...........let's hope they all see the light of day!! [&o]

Well, maybe not the platoon level thing[:'(]

Just kidding..........

So just to make sure i understand correctly, are these "expansion packs that are in the works" using the command ops enginge or are these expansion packs for different games that Matrix games produces?




Lieste -> RE: Another expansion? (4/9/2012 12:48:33 AM)

Cmd Ops.




Bil H -> RE: Another expansion? (4/9/2012 1:18:19 AM)

As Lieste says these are all for the Command Ops engine... and just as a correction, the name is Legends of the Blizkrieg (plural)




wodin -> RE: Another expansion? (4/9/2012 5:50:36 PM)

LOTB sounds amazing!

Hi,

With the understanding that nothing is carved in stone etc., would it be accurate to assume that KOAD and West Wall are intended to be like the HTTR pack ie. new scenarios and estabs but no new "features" while requiring BFTB to be played whereas LOTB and the EF game are intended to be "stand alones" along the Cmd. Ops evolutionary trail??

Just curious...

Arjuna -> RE: Another expansion? (4/10/2012 2:01:29 AM)

Rob,

Yes.

That's correct provided the game engine doesn;t need a new feature added to imulate some particular aspect that had a significant impact on the battlefield. Eg amphibious landings.




nate25 -> RE: Another expansion? (4/12/2012 9:16:16 PM)

Are any of these firm enough to give a ball park date?

I know it's only been five days since your post about the projects, but I had to ask.





Arjuna -> RE: Another expansion? (4/13/2012 12:45:20 AM)

Everyone on these projects is doing it in their spare time. So it makes it very difficult to predict when they will be ready. Hopefully KOAD will be completed later this year. The other three will take longer.




nate25 -> RE: Another expansion? (4/13/2012 10:32:48 PM)

I see, thank you.
