Thank you so much for this! Even though I've played every iteration of
TOAW, it is very encouraging to see someone go "above and beyond" for those who are new to this awesome (best ever?) wargame franchise. You are to be commended, Sir!
You're welcome. It's a labor of love. I'm obsessed with this wargame. It's
all I do anymore. Eat, sleep, TOAW. So many wonderful scenarios and
so little time.
First some feedback - it would be good for us noobs if the first time some new screen shows up you could say what shortcut keys you use to get certain displays up e.g. the range circles
Great idea, thanks. Sometimes the crop circles don't show up for certain
units. I don't know why. But I use the 'I' key to see if I can't bring it
up for the individual unit.
in this instance i checked the keyboard shortcuts in the manual and found that "I" toggles the "range circle options" however doing a search for that term i couldn't find anything that explains what the different colour lines mean
yellow.....seems to be the max range as shown on the unit details screen
green/red..... this stays in the same place regardless of the plane selected
I'll have to post something about the colors and what they mean.
Impressive - I have to have a closer look at this Workshop when I have some sparetime.
You can download the web page to a file and read it anywhere. I've done it.
Thanks for your kind words.
Enjoying this thread and the information herein. Great stuff! I am new to TOAW, but not new to wargames, so these kinds of threads really help me get to know the game better.
Absolutely - Larry, these are extremely helpful. Things like the UI, I can figure out, but getting into the thought processes and tactics past the first turn is...where I sometimes falter. This is a huge help.
I wish I had one of these things when I was learning the game. It makes a
difference whether or not you get frustrated and quit entirely. I went to
WITE a few years ago but soon tired of the same scenario over and
over. I came back to TOAW I guess because of the large database
of scenarios. I downloaded most of the scenarios from Rugged Design and
have them zipped up. I'm going to convert them one at a time to T4 format
and post them in the scenarios section. Do you guys have a preference
which one is first? Anybody got a favorite they want to see?
