Can anyone tell me if this scenario was a worth while exercise,or was it a big waste of time?

Definitely worth while Kirk! There were a few issues that you have since corrected, and now we all need time to play it out. I think most of the folks here are busy with Christmas turkey (or goose, ham, llama, etc), and haven´t had time to really get into it. Plus remember that with each new patch comes the need to start the game again, and the set up time is quite lengthy. In fact, regarding the set up, what I have decided to do is go back into editor x and set up allied task forces within the scenario for faster play in the future. I think the quality of this scenario will only come out in the new year, after we have all had a chance to play through at least the first couple of months.

That said, from what I have seen I am quite excited about it, and the art work alone makes for a great download. Thanks again Kirk for all your efforts, you have put an amazing amount of work into this and it has added a vitality to the game that was missing in the past.

Thanks Tex ok no more patches till the end of January,that should allow for gamers time to get into this huge scenario,the scenario is really stable as is,I don't think the next patch will be much more than slight improvements,I have done more art work I will include that with the January patch.

OK, finally was able to upload the scenerio along with patch, and poked around.

First impression: W-O-W!! . Talk about the ultimate big-gun naval battle scenerio!

Some initial observations -

1) I never realized how many pre-dreadnoughts the UK had.
2) Interesting that Japan's 2 starting carriers are Italian! .
3) I like the addition of the big CVs as later reinforcements, but Lexington and Saratoga appear twice as BCs and CVs. In the game's database "replacement BCs" take the names Ticonderoga and Bunker Hill.
4) The number of BBs and BCs are astounding. My question is have you increased the fuel reserves for both sides? They'll both need it with so many more ships.

This scenerio has the potential to make Jutland look like a skirmish!

Hi Rob yep it's a pretty big scenario,I have renamed the Lexington class Battlecruisers in patch 5 which will be released at the end of January,and yes I have increased both sides fuel reserves,here is another screen shot with the German Fokker D.VII added at the request of Tex!

Ok happy new year when it comes,I have decided to release patch five early,due to the fact that there are quite a few new art files for Ships & Aircraft,along with some minor data changes,and some major ones,namely all aircraft have had thier settings upgraded thanks to TEX

The Air combat is now much improved!!!

PLEASE DOWNLOAD THIS NEW PATCH 5 THANKYOU!

Early testing results clearly show that your aircraft settings are indeed making air combat more interesting.

Happy new year everyone I hope all have a good one.

I have done art for the French built Nieuport 28 which was used by the USA,it is not in the game yet,do you want it included in the next patch?

The artwork is much better than the plane . It would be okay to include, but in small numbers. The Nieuport 28 would have great maneuver, but terrible durability. Nice looking though!

Hi Tex while looking through the aircraft art according to the stock database these two aircraft below, are the same because they are allocated the same bitmap number ie 80.Can you spot the difference, I think it is easy to tell them apart, another short cut by the game developers maybe.The good news or bad news depending on which side off the fence you stand, I'm going to redo all the aircraft art that is in the game!

Very nice work Kirk! There are many cases in this game where the designers took the lazy road and used the same picture for two entirely different teams. Bravo on the decision to re-do the aircraft, it is sorely needed!

Tex I actually like doing the aircraft art even if it is more work than the ships, I will try and scale the aircraft better also,here is the new rescaled Sopwith Pup.
