This has to be one of the easiest games to create a scenario.
I've always enjoyed pushing pixels, but was never enough of a programmer to go the extra mile and create a scenario.
Until now.
I got my Tactics II of the shelf, drew up a close approximation of the boards, (had to go from squares to hex).
Dropped in the units.
Assigned HQ's
Set objectives and points..
DONE

WOW
Within 2 hours a rudimentary game had team red charging at team blue.
Next comes the game balancing.
When It's ready, I'll post

This bodes well for the future of the game. Looking forward to your scenario Agent S.

I agree Agent S. Maybe haul out the old AH Blitzkreig or one of so many other board games that the CC editor could handle easily. This baby is JUST PLAIN FUN!

Look forward to seeing what you come up with Agent S!I'm tempted to dream up an Anglo-Zulu War scenario, but I'd struggle to come up with the Unit definitions..

All infantry.

Very short range artillery.

No tanks.

The British counters are red.

Here is the map.
Forces still being balanced.
Also need to incorporate some aerial and amphib reinforcement units.
Q: Can the entry times for A.I. reinforcements be a turn range or randomised or is it only set to a specific turn number? (I'm thinking the latter).

If there is any truth to the speed/range of the Zulu warrior, then I would think their MP's would be game-breaking.

A specific turn number only - there's something for possible new features; random chance that planned reinforcements appear.

me bad; s-l-o-w-l-y .
I've been getting into some of my other games, (esp. old. AGW from Schwerpunkt), and trying to learn new software (Revit) for work.
Now that the dev is back, I'll ramp up my enthusiasm for this game.

It is a specific turn nunmber. If it could be randomised that would be a good thing

I have been working in the editor. Its so easy to use!

Have you been making any interesting scenarios Joe?
Real life has rendered my game time to zero, and only enough for forum lurking.
