Thanks for putting this up. I'd been thinking that porting maps from Battles from the Bulge would be interesting. How long did this take you to set up?

Just started playing through the map. Did notice you've got a couple of units starting on limited supply; waiting for their HQ to turn up - assume that's intentional. Also spotted at least one unit at 100% quality. Actually a lot of the units have relatively high quality values - is there some reasoning behind that? For example are you going for increasing the chance of direct fire hits? Also like the use of the couple of blocking units - you know they are going to get pulverised but how long will they slow things down for other units to get in place?

Cheers

thanks for the feedback.It's nearly unbelieveble but this scenario creation took me 2 hours to complete, the editor is easy to use (with some tweaks could be easier) and the game have a limited number of feature (I wish some more terrain types), Panther Games scenarios use a 1 km square scale and CCME 1/2 km hex.

Most of allies units are veteran, but there's a relevant number of 'crack' companies. BFTB has a lot of details for a single unit, I'll do some more work on it, some units seems to be stronger in CCME.

I tried to use the same units in the same place accordingly to the original scenario.

A new update is on the way (also some scenarios from HTTR and COTA).
version 1.2 added (see first post)

Addenum from BFTB briefing

quote:

Historically the attack on Malmedy was a disaster for Panzer Brigade 150. This scenario assumes that elements of Kampfgruppe Kuhlmann of 12SS Panzer Division have bypassed Dom. Bütgenbach to the south and are brought forward to assist Skorzeny.

I have now played the scenario from both sides against an AI opponent.

Playing as the US I got an easy decisive victory.

Playing as the Germans I got a more difficult decisive victory.
