To anyone interested,
I have completed the entries for all/most of the base names and put in provisional port and airfield sizes. I still need to decide on supply, fortification and industry.
I have been playing around with the TOEs for the Land Units. My plan is to model the following:
Army Group HQ, Army HQ, Divisions, Corps Troops, Army Troops (arty and engineers), specific smaller organizations e.g. independent Brigades.
There are not enough slots to model Corps HQs (and with this game scale you would end up with more than one in a hex in Europe).
I am still not sure if I will need to lump the Corps and Army Troops into fixed units designated by the Corps or Army title or if I will be able to represent all of those units individually. I am suspecting there will not be enough slots to do it on an individual basis.
I have been collecting info on the multitude of artillery types that were available to the various countries in 1914 (some types dating back to the 1870s) - I want to at least get a good list of all of the designations so that I can make a well organized device list - that way I can allocate the arty types to a slot number and worry about the correct data later.
I have created an infantry section and cavalry section device for each nation so that the devices can be used to model the availability of training/manpower for that nation.
I still need to add in the transportation network to the map and the wpohex.dat file. Right now I have been taking a break from the map.
