ORIGINAL: Der Zeitgeist
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?
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.
When in danger, when in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout.
