Regarding Strategic Warfare, I was toying with an idea that there'd be a 'standard model' how the German economic engine would behave, something that perhaps initially gives them an advance, but later on starts to decline. This is propably what you have done with the BRP system right now?
Then, there'd be certain milestones, if certain criteria is not met, Germany would be penalised.
Something among the line that if Paris does not fall by Fall 1940 there's a penalty. But if it already falls on say Spring 1940 there's a bonus.
There could be a few key locations such as this, and depending who owns them at which stage there'd be an adjustment of additional 'BRP's, reported as SW results.
Out of my head:
Poland Fall 1939
Denmark, Norway Spring 1940
Netherlands, Belgium Summer 1940
Paris Fall 1940
Some USSR cities Fall 1941
Some USSR cities Fall 1942
Some USSR cities Fall 1943
Italy still Axis by Fall 1943
Finland Bulgaria Romania still Axis by Summer 1944
Something in Africa somewhere along the time line as well. And special bonus for Nazi Gibraltar!
Not too many though, to keep this still relatively simple.
These events would be reported to players somehow so they would know how they are faring. But using "3R language" related to Strategic warfare. So when the news are positive, it could be because of new Submarine models and new, efficient interceptors. And when negative, because of strategic bombing and anti-submarine warfare?
I have no idea how difficult it is to program events into TOAW, and I don't know if this makes any sense or not.
And it still sounds like the BRP reinforcements calculation logic and not SW logic...
But I'm trying!
