News Flash: I'm sure Connfire won't mind me letting everyone know, about a brand new scenario we are both working on for War Plan Orange. It's a big scenario that assumes WW1 never happened,it starts in 1922 and ends in 1930!

This will be a mod of a mod, if you will - using Kirk's excellent Pandora's Box scenario as a starting point.

The major conceptual difference is the historical "point of diversion" will be an escalation of the Russo-Japanese War in 1904, as opposed to a failed Washington Naval Treaty in 1921 which is standard in most WPO scenarios. This results in the next "big war", WWI, being postponed to 1922. A detailed back story explaining all this will be provided.

All of the changes I'm making will be naval - Kirk's air and ground unit changes will be untouched. Some of the existing minor navies will be fleshed out, more "never were" classes that were cancelled because of WWI will appear, and some new countries will also either be joining the Allies or Japan. Some ships which were seized during WWI will belong to their intended owners, and an expanded reinforcement schedule will be featured to keep the action moving. Both sides should have an interesting assortment of ships to keep them busy.

The goal is to create a fun, balanced, sustainable scenario which will hopefully allow all the Allied countries to jump in right at the start, even in PBEM. The Allies still will have more ships then Japan and her Allies, but these will be spread out, as opposed to the Japanese Alliance's ships which are more concentrated in the middle of the map. I expect there will be heavy naval combat.

The goal is to create a fun, balanced, sustainable scenerio which will hopefully allow all the Allied countries to jump in right at the start, even in PBEM, without either side being overpowered. The Allies still will have more starting ships and reinforcements then Japan and her Allies, but these will be spread out, as opposed to the Japanese Alliance's ships which are more concentrated in the middle of the map. I expect there will be heavy naval combat.

New scenario end date May 27th 1931.





Also I have decided to add new aircraft to cover the new end date,plus as Connfire highlighted on many occasions before,that the Allieds have a huge advantage in aircraft performance figures as per the standard game,well that has been fixed for this scenario,the Japanese etc will have excellent aircraft.

Albatross in game. In service 1929 but for testing only, she is listed as 1922 in game so don't worry, also I have still to give her aircraft compliment.

She is based at Sydney because that is where she was built.

All other scenario's in the game last approx 4 years in total,this scenario starts in 1922 and ends in 1931 that's 9 years in total more than double the length of any other scenario.The equipment used by your Army,Navy or Airforce is going to be far superior by the end off the war,than it was at the start of the conflict!

So this is the GRAND CAMPAIGN covering the entire period that the games database allows.

Hi Kirk,

Will this be playable with the AI (either side), or do you believe that it should be used only for PBEM. With my current PBEM in AE, I would love to try a game in WPO, but really want it to be against the AI due to my time constraints.

Thanks

The scenario should play using the AI the game needs attention from Matrix, but alas it looks like we are on our own, adrift on the ocean in a rubber dingy awaiting rescue, but I'm not holding my breath.
