ver2.5
The main focus of 2.5 is a rework of Battle Groups (BG's) included in the Campaign "Objective Caen".
These specific BG's are now approximately Company sized, and have the ability to Reinforce. An extra day is added to the length of the campaign too.
These changes, as well as a newly edited "Objective Caen" campaign, should further intensify the Close Combat experience. Company sized BG's puts attrition at the forefront of daily strategic decisions, and opens up possibilities of cutting off an opponent’s reinforcements as well as supplies.
Line vs. Line is suggested, but various combinations of difficulty levels can be used for a specific preference.

-British/Canadian/German BG's fpools and bgroups edited
-Added a fifth day ... with three turns per day
-Reworked "Objective Caen" campaign
-various small corrections
-Suggested selection rules (as seen in BG screen): No Armor, vehicles, Guns in first two columns of Active Roster
note: BG's can't reinforce every day. British AB BG's can only reinforce once ... while all others can reinforce one time less than the number of days left after their arrival.
Also, some rare types of Armor won't be available after first reinforcement ... so have them in the active roster before reinforcement

I've been trying to get this file for a few days now, but each attempt results in the following message on the uploading site:

"Sorry, you have reached your daily download limit.
Please try again tomorrow or acquire a premium membership."

I haven't downloaded anything from uploading so not sure what's happening. Can this be hosted on the main site please or can someone send it to me.

Thanks
Steve

Further notes:

The Objective Caen Campaign has been designed to try and simulate battle field characteristics common to historical conditions, with respect to strategic map level game play. By balancing Battle Group quantities and placement, some battlefield historical similarities can be realized ... such as:

1.The necessity for German command to establish a line of defense across the Strategic map, so as to not permit Allied Battle Groups access to supply depots, and/or supply lines. This is possible to accomplish, but requires both Battle Group advancement and retreat during move turns, along with defense of specific victory locations. Therefore, knowledge and understanding of the strategic map is critical for overall success ... especially since important German Battle Groups arrive later in the Campaign (June 8, 9).

2. Although Allied Battle Groups out number their opponent's ... they aren't relevant to the outcome unless they can break through German defenses, and gain further access to German held ground. This simulates bottleneck restrictions Allied forces encountered while moving inland through Normandy bocage terrain.

I've prepared a single page (printable) strategic map using small versions of TLD maps, so players can better visualize map connections and the type of terrain at map entry points. Information about Battle Group arrival dates and the number of times they can reinforce is also included.
