From: Clifton Park, NY
I been playing Gary Grigsby games ever first came out, remember playing that ol' Warship back in the 80's. Manage to beat the War in the Pacific in the 90's as playing the Japanese. So i get mix up playing this and sometimes i like Pacific Storm: Allies better due to actions in 3D by Lesta made by the Russians. For many months i have modding Pacific Storm: Allies to add additional ship models and balance out the resources, etcs. I still love that game, but most of us know that game is not realistic enough to play. It took me many months to fix it and still few others thing is needed, some of them are hardcoded that cannot be changed.
When i play WitP:AE, the aircraft R&Ds doesnt feel right, any players can change it and should have research trees to do research over time depend on the leaders. That way you can work your way to more advance models. Playing against a person through PBEM, hard to trust someone that arent cheating, esp changing the aircraft layout for more advance planes and not choosen the eariler models that should have been in the first place.
The hard parts is not knowing what happen in the Pacific in WWII, buy throwing away those books and documents and learn how to deal with it and try to fight it out in logic ways. There are pros and cons on both sides, having this abilities to understand what happen and not making the same mistakes twices. This would be more interesting ways to play the game, infact playing it again would never be like the first experiences you have played.
When i played the game along with AIs in the Grand Scale Campaign, i usually leave the aircraft factories as it is and the engine factories too. That way it would be alittle more realistic, but not enough to gain due to many other eariler prototypes have been missing out.
Idea- during the action phases can watch the 3D battles along with stunning graphics we have today, that something i would like to see. Or even look at the shipyards and see how much progress the ships is needed, or the beautiful landscapes.
Does anyone else have any ideas would like to add for future War in the Pacific in WWII?
Anyway for those would like to see the mod i made for PSA, you can check it out on facebook by using the keyword "Pacific Storm Allies Mod" and also the official forum. Dont think im allowed to post those links that arent related to WitP:AE, since that there is no off topic here.
