Norway is fixed in the Third Reich scenario.
I believe there are still some funky thing happening with Finland Russia, but the Third Reich scenario fixes it so the Russians can take Leningrad back.
Crete is by design to happen that way.
The French events works properly. Perhaps the description may have to be checked.
It is intended only to free up the Northern forces.
Corruption, ja, I don't like it either but Germany is not suppose to get the bomb any way.
You can go for it but it will be very expensive. I believe I increased the threshold in the Third Reich.
If you say no to convoys it will cost you more in the as you will get less PP's from the colonies.
The Ukraine event has been beefed up a little to make it more worth while.
It's actually quite fun having Ukraine on your side.
There's allot of other improvement in the Third Reich. You should check it out.
Thanks but no thanks on your Third Reich mod. I'll stick to the stock scenarios and make my comments on them and hope that the company fixes some of the obvious problems.
I didn't complain about the Crete event, in fact I mentioned that I liked it and thought it would be a great model for a Norway Quisling event to ensure that a German AI actually puts troops there, which didn't happen in version 1.02 and now it 1.03 Norway doesn't automatically surrender to Germany via some kind of event similar to Denmark willingly surrendering to Germany.
The unfreezing of some French units does not work properly in the 1939 Grand Campaign, I know because I was paying careful attention to the event descriptions and what happened or didn't happen to French units along the Swiss and Spanish borders.
As to the 1939 Soviet/Finnish War I didn't complain about the USSR losing Leningrad, or helping the Soviet AI recapture it, I complained that unlike Strategic War in Europe there is no historical event to handle the Finnish surrender and subsequent "gifting" of Finnish territory to the USSR around the historical time. If this was done in SWiE then it can be done in ToF with the exact same event.
Corruption affects more than Germany, I've seen it affect Germany, the USSR and the USA. Just annoying is all I said. As for researching the atomic bomb I calculate that it causes more harm to the country who oays to research it than the allaince that gets bombed by it. After doing a test in the 1944 scenario to see what getting it did I think the approximately 2,900-3,000 PP's spent to get one bomb. I had thought that after the research was done I'd see a new item to build in the other tab but didn't. Actually best not to have them anyway, at least not in Europe.
The Ukraine, or Croatia question is one of personal preference, I would much rather have PP's for Germany than more PP's for each separate country. Besides as long as they're German home country Germany can't be defeated until the Ukraine or Croatia is also and by not accepting those two tiny countries some enemy can't "conquer" them easily and make them their home country. Plus that's two less countries to have to play or shudder the thought allow the Artificial Ignorance play.
