Well, I didn't even have time to check out more than a few things in CMANO, but with the new facility database, some of the most annoying issues that always prevented me from building scenarios in Harpoon now seems almost gone.

This might be a good time to assemble a list of potential scenarios that people may be interested in or are even already working on.

The first larger things I plan to do are adaptions or additions to the old DB2000 "WW3 in 1985" Battleset by Ragnar. I always liked the extensive scenario descriptions in there and the story they told about what happened in other areas not covered by the battleset.

I already collected a few sources, links to OOBs etc. about a Baltic scenario in that timeframe, and that might be the one I plan to build during the winter. It would depict an amphibious landing of the WP Unified Baltic Fleets on the island of Sjælland, Denmark, and the efforts of German and Danish forces to stop it and prevent a breakout through the Kattegat and Skagerrak. It would make extensive use of the new mining and demining functions and could also include Sweden as a neutral power that could act as a sort of covert ally to the NATO side, sharing sensor data or even airfields (if the engine allows that).

So, what are you planning to do on the upcoming winter evenings?

The next one for me is based on the Phuc Yen airfield raid on 24 Oct 1967. Still waiting for a DB update before proceeding.

There are other irons in the fire, too.

I am working on Harpoon's old Dawn Patrol to use as a tool to learn the editor. That was the first Harpoon scenario I ever played.

Hacking the database to add an APY-1 in a really crazy arc to my "F-14A Tomcat ALE".

Good job Command folks, hate to say it but really nice work.

I'm still really trying to grasp what we potentially have given the import/export feature and event engine. Amazing possibilities for scenario designers.

Every since I started following Command I have been dreaming of doing an Atlantic Convoy Crossing scenario with Iceland being controlled by the Soviets as in Red Storm Rising book by Tom Clancy.

I`m planning on something set in the Caribbean, using some recent news events as inspiration. I think I`ve got a long way to go to get my head around the editor and what I want to do.

Several scenarios in the oven, in solo or with the CMANO PdL Design Team

- A couple of scenarios based on Russian-Georgian war 2008
- An scenario based on fishing conflict between Canada-Spain
- A conversion of Harpoon's Franco's Folly (with permission of Paul 'Sirius')

some AARs (sorry in Spanish)

Thanks Tony, glad you like

Now try to make an Iranian AEGIS Boghammar... with SPY-1D radar (4 faces), VLS (4x 61-cell!), 4x illuminators and an AEGIS weapons datalink - all added through the scenario editor!

I'm trying to put together a Falklands War scenario, something like the first week of April 1982, when the Argentine navy was looking to engage, and the British were looking to achieve naval superiority while waiting for their assault ships to arrive. The Argentines have 3 task forces, a submarine and about ~150 land based air but mostly on the mainland and far away. (Though there are a few on the Falklands).

I'm actually not entirely sure what the British had in the area at this point in time; certainly Hermes and Invincible but not sure what else. I might have to guess/infer.

I am concentrating my efforts first on building a good current situation of the Venezuelan armed forces, with the hope of doing the same in Colombia and from their build a scenario of conflict between the two. Maybe spice things up with some limited US support to Colombia.

There is exactly an scenario depicting this situation I wrote, 'Malvinas 1982, The Pincer' ready for download from Warfaresims Command download section, it is playable from both sides, and it starts just before the Belgrano was sunk, the argentines had 3 task forces approaching the area and a submarine north of the isles waiting for the British carrier force, while the inland bases were crowded with airplanes.

Still just experimenting, but I wanted to do something along the lines of the old NACV "Ambush" scenario.

I just loved having all those Backfires to play with, especially the "speculative" interceptor/long-range escort with the R-33's.

Ah...1989 on my Amiga, waiting like a minute for the screen to update. My, how things have improved :)

That's pretty cool. I played it, was neat. I shall still work on mine though.



Not for the faint of heart to organise.

Preliminary work for my Baltic scenario is coming along nicely.
I'm currently building up the NATO airfields using custom layers.

A San Carlos Water scenario would be fun

I'm doing some research to create the Dance of the Vampires from Red Storm Rising. Am a bit stumped as to how to get the AI to fire air launched decoys though. No idea yet. Anyone? Plus there seem to only be AS-2 decoys, no AS-5 Kelt ones. Was that an error in the book or?

Yeah. I agree. I'll see if I can put one of those together too.

I'm actually got sidetracked by doing an Operation Paraquet scenario on South Georgia, which is appealing as it's very quick and simple. Might have that done this evening if time permits.

Working on a Classic Cold War scenario off the North Cape of Norway. Its 1994, the Cold War has continued and the Russians surge:
-to gain air superiority
-conduct some air assaults to seize some Norwegian airports
-move an assault force down the coast.
-sweep the coast clean with missile boats - I find the 'first contact' scenarios a bit stale without air support so this should be a bit more interesting.

Scenario will last about 8 hrs.

Lots of tinkering to do yet.

I did some research for my planned AFNORTH scenarios, too. You might find this analysis pretty interesting:
