Put together a second fictional map and scenario....Once again the map is 9000 x 9000 meters.The scenario pits the British 53rd Welsh Division against the German 12th SS Panzer regiment plus supporting units.....Rather than post an after action report I will just post screens of the first test play.....The screenshots should speak for themselves and add some color...

Hey, thanks a lot for doing this. I am very happy indeed to play hypothetical/fictional scenarios and so will give them a go. I'm very interested in designing scenarios this way myself so I might take a look at your work too for some pointers.

Thanks for these.
I play(ed) Tacops which were all hypothetical. (quite similar games really).
So a good balanced scenario is just as much fun.

Your very welcome Fascist Dog....and Agent S.....my pleasure...I decided to create some fictional scenarios because it is much less work than doing all the research required for making historical maps and scenarios.Also it is my hope to create scenarios which are balanced well enough to provide some uncertainty about whether or not I will win or lose a scenario.Historical scenarios can sometimes have very predictable outcomes...As a scenario designer I really like to lose a scenario I have created the first time I play it.Then I know I have to go back and play it again and try to win...If that makes any sense.

Yes ,I Kind of like the second map the best also... as far as the scenarios go I like the second one with the British the most,though the first scenario is probably harder to win as the allies...not sure if it is even possible....makes me think the scenario needs tweeked again.Going to work on a couple of more maps and scenarios involving the French,Netherlands,and Belgium,as well as the Polish.I really want well balanced scenarios and I still have some learning to do in order to accomplish this goal.There are so many possibilities when it comes to setting up the OOB's as well as the victory conditions.

Thank you for these Sweeteye. But I was only able to play the second scenario, because every time I use LOS tool in the first scenario, I get CTD. Second scenario was great. Good for practicing delay order as the allies.

Ok.....I believe I have resolved the problem by re saving the map and scenario.....No CTD now when using the LOS tool.....I will repost the fixed map and scenario.....There are several people who may wish to replace the old files with the new ones.....Thanks again 82charlie......

Thank you. In the old days, I'd ask where you lived in Ohio for some hotseat play [;)

(I live near Akron)

Thanks for creating a sharing these.

I have been working on a Mao of the Arracourt region, but have had to set it aside for a bit

Sure thing Major SNAFU.....I know what you mean about putting things aside....Happens easily..I have been meaning to make a couple more scenarios involving France,Poland,etc. ...have been sidetracked trying to learn C++ programming so I can design my own wargame....progress is very slow for me without having a formal education in programming...Sometimes I think I would be better off just working with BFTB....It is such a great program....
