It has been YEARS in the making, but I have comprised a MASSIVE amount of work that I am going to share with whoever loves this game, and happens to come here looking for goodies to add to it. The list of additional planes, ships, and maps is far to numerous for me to even begin listing. It contains complete country additions for Germany and Italy, and massive additions for Britain, USA, etc etc.

There are scenarios for the Atlantic and Mediterranian, for Italy, and Germany, Britain, and a bunch of what if scenarios that includes the Graff Zepplin, aircraft for it at various stages(upgraded aircraft types) through the war and three additional German Carriers that were originally planned in the "Plan Z" that was eventually dropped.

Much of this work is ALREADY COMPLETED(like all the additional ships, planes, and country textures), but I still have some work to do in the war room for some of the scenarios. I wanted to give you all a heads up that this is coming, it is just a matter of WHEN I finish it....and after all these years.. I assur eyou, I am GOING TO finish it hehe. I am hoping to make it available as a Christmas present, time permitting, but if you have waited this long for somthing cool to come along for CAW, then whats a couple more months ? This release is actually probably MORE content then was provided with original game and the bonus scenarios from the Super MOD that was realeased a few years ago.

Even if only one person enjoys it, I think that will be cool, because I have had alot of fun making this stuff, and even more fun playing with it...and it is WAY to cool to keep all to myself. So be prepared and check back again soon ! :)

I am interested!  For me CAW was a waste of money and hd space.  I found it boring after a handful of scenarios.  Mind, you it has potential but came up short IMHO.  Your mod might make that money and hd space spent a bit easier to take :)  Looking forward to it...good luck!

Yes - looking forward to your release - big fan of 1990's one - but the new one was way too few scenarios

I sent him PM and he says that right now  he's occupied with other stuff and he hopes to be back on the track soon, most of the work is completed.

This are some of my What if scenarios which I would like to see one day in CAW:

1.Japanese attack on Panama channel in 1942. (after Midway went good for them)
2.Aleutian islands 1942 (Nimitz sends Saratoga to help defenders)
3.Aleutian Island 1943.(Japanese put combined fleet in action for the first time after Battle of Santa Cruz islands to repulse invading USA fleet.
4.Leyte but without Philippine sea  (Japanese have all the planes and carriers that were lost in that
battle)

Well these things always take a lot more hours than estimated...

Just hope it does not turn out to be Derek Smart type vaporware.

For that matter I hope I didn't just set off the Derek Smart sue me alarm by mentioning his lordships name.

Yes - if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck and has webbed feet it is probably a cat ( Vir in Babylon 5)

Sorry that I basically dropped off the earth, I really had alot going on and basically dropped the ball, but as I said before, I have so much work into it already, there is no way I am going to abandon it. I have been back on it this past week, and hopefully can keep at it, and yes, you guys are right, it is enormous time consumption, and will take longer then anticipated. It is a HUGE update though, and there are f3f in it, which had been supplied previously in a mega mod, but were never actually utilized (so it appears). My main focus has actually been the european theatre, so I have added TONS of luftwaffe and british aircraft & ships...including the earliest models, all the way up to the me262, horton 229 163 komet, etc. It will be best to duplicate your CAW folder, and install this seperately, because I have altered alot of the original artwork, so basiclaly you will have two installs, one pacific and one european, else your jap carriers will have swastika on their launch decks LOL. Below are a few screenies to wet your whistle. It will still be a while yet before release, but it IS coming. :)

Well I guess we could have you shot for being late -

However that won't finish your mod - so carry on!

Dfoe - or Scott I gather

the first picture did not work - I tried it on IE 8and firefox - the other 3 worked well - I particularly like the second picture of England and the continent.

Re the last picture with swastika on flight deck - you realize that image is outlawed in germany by the politically correct boys so commercial games never show that image? ( unrealalistic but a problem for distribution ) just in case you are not aware.

Yes I am aware, but since it is a free mod, I don't live in Europe, and I am not a commercial distributoer, I opted for realism over PC ;)

Not sure why the first pic didnt work for you. Seems to work for me. Here is the link again:

Worked that time - Eastern Theater Operations - title screen rivals some of the Silent Service excellent mods I have.

Thanks for the reply and I will await your further announcements!

Come On, people?

I'm not trying to start a flame war or nothing, but you don't really expect this guy to give this to us, do you?

He's been teasing the community for some time, and I don't foresee anything rolling out ever.

Sure, I'd love for him to prove me wrong, but my hopes are low, and I've not enough time or knowledge to do this myself so another dead Matrix game collecting electronic dust on my storage computer.

Pitty... it had/has such potential too...
