I saw you added support for carrying over troops from one mission to another, so I wondered if there are plans to make use of this in a future PC title ?
A campaign which lasted long enough for unit upgrades etc. would be really cool. It could just be a series of linked maps where you advanced if you won, and moved back if you lost, while upgrading and replacing units between missions.

My wish for a campaign system would be something like the historical modules in ASL, as in Red Barricades. You fight over a certain (large) map over a series of campaign dates. Some units are assigned to you and you can purchase others from a historically available list. Force preservation is important so this is a wonderful leap up from standalone scenarios. A lot of play testing would be required for these things of course.

The other type of campaigns I have seen are those that follow a certain formation through n years of the war. PCO has these. Personally I am not interested in this type of campaign.

I hope that map is a taste of things to come.

That's just a scan of the original.
Now if I can do a conversion and somehow get it to work with new map tiles,..
Still early on, and still learning.
I haven't had a chance yet to look at how Eric's implemented campaign hooks work.

This is something I definitely would like to do, but the precise plans for this will depend on how well COH continues to sell.
