With all due respect, I have downloaded close to 500 scenarios from the likes of Stockwell Pete and others. I will not live long enough to play them all. So why in the world would I pay $10 for a smattering of new FoG scenarios. I can get two Panzer Corps dlc's for that. Give me a reason and I'll consider it [;)]

Not everyone is comfortable adding mod content to their game. These scenarios have been fully tested and all the usual issues and bugs you get with mod content resolved. It comes with a full installer to set it all up for you. For people who are not happy copying files around and trying to get things to work it means you just plug and play. If that's not what you are looking for then its probably not for you!




Hertston -> RE: Field of Glory Battle Pack Now Available! (6/1/2012 12:24:44 PM)

Hmmm... I think it's more that people will go for 'official', in the expectation scenarios will all be designed, researched and balanced to professional standards (not that many 'unofficial' ones aren't as well). I've paid up as it's an interesting mix including several of my favourites, esp. Bosworth Field.

Well, at $0.50 a scenario, considering the map work involved, it's worth it for some. But really, simply unzipping a user-created file and putting it in a folder is not modding. No offense, Rocko[;)]

Also, were these scenarios done by the dev team that is bailing on FoG?

Actually, they look pretty good at 46 cents each. And I assume you can edit them? I'm such an easy mark!
