While I applaud your effort I must insist that if you do finish your mod, which is actually a recopying of my work, that it be in the form of ONLY a how to guide, or done in such a way as to require the original War Plan Orange game. While I am not opposed to the idea -- though you should have sought my permission first as you are using what I devoted 15 months of my life to doing, I cannot support anything that would make War Plan Orange in essence a freeware download for AE. If so, I will ask the AE team to place codes in to prevent WPO scenarios from being run just as we did in WitP.
If you would like help I will assist in any way I can, but WPO is still a product that I developed and receive money for and I would appreciate that this mod be listed simply as a how to guide, or include only scenario files so that original WPO files will still be required by the end user.
Moderator hat off, I lost the 1.3 OOB two years ago, and I have yet to have time to restart work on it. It may happen, but no promises.
Tankerace I want you and WAR PLAN ORANGE to benefit here,any work and effort that I'm putting in, is for the War Plan Orange gamers,when I first bought this game,I was in two minds if I should or not,because this forum was virtually dead,nothing was happening here,yet this is the time period I'm most interested in other than Napoleonic as per my avatar,I don't want all them ***** Aircraft that Admirals Edition rams down our throats,planes suck!!!
I want ships,I want big ships and that is what War Plan Orange provides me with,I want this game to be massive and be as popular as War In The Pacific Admirals Edition forum is,there are always plenty of new threads and debates there,well that is what I want to see here as well,WAR PLAN ORANGE IS A FANTASTIC GAME!!! but it is being left in limbo it deserves more than that. Please enlighten us poor gamers here as to it's future,Matrix are not doing enough to support this game,it badly needs a face lift,the original art work is to say the least pretty basic,there is so much more can be done with this game,it needs a what if Scenario based in the time period the Pre-Dreadnoughts & Dreadnoughts were at there zenith in popularity say 1880 - 1920 time frame,This game starts when the demise off the Battleship was it's own future,it should be based on when they were the dominate power at sea battle of Jutland for example,the second largest fleet in the world had just been scuttled namely the German High Seas Fleet,so for me the game misses the boat by approx 20 years in my honest opinion.
So I say here to you Tankerace and Matrix give us a sign that this game is not dead, and that it does indeed still have a pulse,for it has been in a coma for far to long,we want WAR PLAN ORANGE to grow stronger and thrive
