War Plan Red has now changed to " Modern World War"

Thanks to ormand, and Ernie for their help in making the events for me, much appreciated. The events are as follows

Increase Economy
waking regimes after war is declared.
Putting a regime back to sleep after they surrender.
manpower increases
war weariness which takes effect after 4-5 years of war- each game turn is 21 days. This event will begin to decrease the morale of the nation and units. When war weariness kicks in, the nation in question will have a rally card become available at the cost of 200PP in order to rally the nation.

Cards that each nation will have:

increase Economy- cost 5PP
Purchase oil- Cost 10PP
Purchase raw materials-Cost 10PP
rally card-Cost 200PP ( this card will only become active when the nation in question has war weariness)

War weariness will also be determined by how many VP objectives the regime in question has, how many nations they are at war with. When a nation has their capital captured, the regime which is occupying the enemy capital will receive 1/4 of their resources and manpower one time event. This is to prevent resources from being taken every turn from the defeated nation. I'm currently play testing this in order to make sure all works accordingly, and once finished I will make this scenario available for download.


Back story

Here is new background information for this scenario..Also, the map now has all of Africa and part of Eastern front of the Soviet Union up to Moscow

WAR PLAN RED

Joint Army and Navy basic war plan Red was one of the color-coded war plans created by the United States Army in the late 1920's and 30's to estimate the requirements for a hypothetical war with the United Kingdom ( The red forces). War Plan Red discussed the potential for fighting a war with Britain and its Empire and outlined those steps necessary to defend the Atlantic coast against any attempted mainland invasion of the United States. It further discussed fighting a two-front war with both Japan and Britain simultaneously.

February 1955 – OPEC Changes Currency Standard to Euro
For many years, the US dollar had been artificially buoyed by its status as the standard currency for international oil purchases. Once governments no longer needed greenbacks for their oil dealings, the demand for the currency plummeted. Overnight, the value dropped 10%. It would likely have dropped even further, but drastic actions by many Western Governments managed to stall the descent. Even so, over the next several months, the dollar continued to decline on an almost daily basis.

November 1955 – Currency Repercussions Spread
With the US dollar trading at just above half of its former value, demand for imported goods dropped to historical lows across the US. The resulting economic impact echoed across the globe. Particularly hard-hit at this time were the US’s major trading partners: Canada, China, Mexico, Japan and the EU. In response, many of these regions looked to other emerging markets to take up the trade slack. The EU did not have to look far... the world’s new economic superpower was one of its closest neighbors, The Soviet Union.

May 1955 – US Sparks International Crisis

As the debate escalated on the best way to revitalize the US economy, the new regime explored all options, including secret plans for annexation of western Canada, Mexico, and general invasions of the Mid-East. The principle of “manifest destiny” was unearthed.

And that claim is by the right of our manifest destiny to overspread and to possess the whole of the continent which Providence has given us for the development of the great experiment of liberty and federated self-government entrusted to us. (American journalist John L. O’Sullivan, 1845.)
To those in power, Canada seemed the easiest target. The oil fields were in close proximity to the demand, and much of the infrastructure for transporting and refining the crude was already in place. On the political end, it was widely assumed that although there would be some grumbling on the international stage, it was improbable for any nation to muster a significant military response. There was also an unfounded American perception that (however the United Kingdom might choose to react) many Canadians would likely welcome the move. Still, in case of resistance, the United States needed its military primed to meet any threat. To that end, the Administration proposed a bill to reinstate conscription and bolster a military that had still yet to recover from a prolonged involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.
These clandestine plans would progress no further – the domestic outcry dwarfed the race riots of the Thirties and Forties. Low-income families, predominantly Black and Hispanic, felt targeted by the draft. Youths refused to report. As National Guard units were ordered to assist local law enforcement in registering draftees, riots erupted. Chicago, Washington, Detroit, New York, and Los Angeles were particularly hard-hit by violence and looting – predominantly aimed at middle and upper-class neighborhoods and businesses. This time it wasn’t South Central Los Angeles on fire; it was Beverly Hills.
Amidst the carnage, an aide to the Secretary of the Joint Chiefs of Staff leaked the concept of annexing western Canada. Within two weeks it was unveiled that the leak was in fact ordered by the President, to provide a rallying point for the nation and to curb the response to the renewed conscription. Once again, however, it only illustrated the cultural divide between the American public and the administration. Overnight, the US became an international pariah. Both Canada and Mexico closed their borders. Most European Nations recalled their ambassadors. The United Kingdom, and the EU, along with the Soviet Union immediately began to airlift military units to Canada, to aid in its defense. In an attempt to appease the international community, the House of Representatives immediately began Impeachment proceedings.

Then state governments began to take sides on the issue. Texas, Illinois, Georgia, and California all came out strongly in favor of this expansionist policy, claiming that in the long run such a move would be to Canada’s benefit. Most of the northern states, however, came out fervently against this policy. The country had not been this polarized since the Civil War. Regardless of individual politics, what little trust the federal government commanded with the public – already low from the economic stress – evaporated. Ironically, the same argument that the US government had once used to intervene abroad now became the internal war cry, aimed their own way. “The Federal Government no longer has the Moral Authority to lead the nation...”

Sounds quite interesting. Can you post a couple of screen shoots of the battlefield?

the morale event is being tested now. If a nation is at war for 5 years, their morale starts to suffer. If they lose their capital and surrender, the regime controlling the capital receives half of their manpower, raw and oil for one turn. if they continue to fight and then lose all their cities, they automatically surrender.

The Capital is very important for production. Note, that if a nation loses their capital they are severely hampered in what they can produce. While a capital can produce almost everything, cities can just produce infantry and supplies.

Is there any more info on this mod? I recently purchased this game, am currently playing the GD1938 module, and would like to see what a more "Modern War" mod looks like.

Thanks!

Dan

Hey, brother... somehow I missed this thread... It sounds super interesting! Really... CPdeYoung are in a Cold War situation after the fall of Axis in the V3 mod, so my mind is now on war other than WW2. Very cool...
