MarkShot -> Where to go after Boot Camp? (5/22/2011 9:51:13 PM)

Once I get done with Boot Camp, where would be a good place for this "90 Day Wonder" to continue my education without causing too much loss of life?

Thanks.




Mobius -> RE: Where to go after Boot Camp? (5/22/2011 9:53:24 PM)

Tutorial
Then Niemirow.




MarkShot -> RE: Where to go after Boot Camp? (5/22/2011 9:56:07 PM)

Oh, I did the tutorial first.

I'll give that scenario a go, but time is unfortunately up for today.

Thanks.




Mobius -> RE: Where to go after Boot Camp? (5/22/2011 9:56:27 PM)

It would be interesting to see if these played differently in 60 second turns.

I went into the set battles menu to play the Winterstorm scenarios from the Soviet side.

actually, WHERE IS the boot camp scenarios? can't seem to find them anywhere. played through the tutorial though and it's really fun... damn reds freakin' everywhere... like cockroaches....

Under "Campaign"-> "(6) Boot Camp"

You didn't say German or Soviet. I guess I will with German.

chrisol -> RE: Where to go after Boot Camp? (5/24/2011 8:02:19 PM)

Actually a table of scenarios with details of time / complexity (like in Command Ops:BftB) would be really useful if anyone could be bothered...
(unless there's one already in which case feel free to point out what a fool I am !)

If just starting out go with Germans. For a challenge go with Russians.

I've been looking for the same thing...I'd like to play some of the smaller scenarios prior to taking on a campaign.




Mad Russian -> RE: Where to go after Boot Camp? (5/25/2011 2:37:29 AM)

In the scenario listing look down in the right hand corner when you have one selected. It shows the OOB and map size for each scenario.

That allows you to read the scenario description and to determine the size of the battle.

Each scenario is prefixed by the date.

So, we've given you the date of the battle, a description of it, what size the OOB is and what size the map is all on the same screen.

This scenario has a low unit density and a 1km map.

Good Hunting.

Mad Russian -> RE: Where to go after Boot Camp? (5/25/2011 2:40:25 AM)

This is the most complex scenario in PCO. It's got a Very High unit density on a 2km map.

Good Hunting.

Mad Russian -> RE: Where to go after Boot Camp? (5/25/2011 2:42:13 AM)

Contact at Lipki is a high unit density on a 1500 meter map.

Good Hunting.

oldspec4 -> RE: Where to go after Boot Camp? (5/25/2011 3:06:04 AM)

ok...now I get it. Thanks for explaining this.




Mad Russian -> RE: Where to go after Boot Camp? (5/25/2011 3:10:39 AM)

There are so many features in PCO it can take some time to appreciate them all.

We're happy to help.

Good Hunting.

You can also filter your choices by year by using the buttons on the lower left.




oldspec4 -> RE: Where to go after Boot Camp? (5/25/2011 3:29:59 AM)

Another question...I've been using the random battle generator for smaller battles w/ 250 points or less. I don't recall seeing any reference to map size when selecting a map, i.e., I like smaller numbers of units to manage (for now) but I can't determine the size of the map.

Thanks.




junk2drive -> RE: Where to go after Boot Camp? (5/25/2011 3:37:46 AM)

That's in the wishlist thread. We beta guys know what size the maps are and no one thought about having a way to tell what size a map is. Maybe we can come up with a way to name the maps with a size or put it in the description that you get when clicking "Template".




Mad Russian -> RE: Where to go after Boot Camp? (5/25/2011 3:38:21 AM)

If the map is one of mine it will have an Hsg prefix. After the Hsg will be a number.

Hsg5 is a 500 meter map.

Hsg75 is a 750 meter map.

Hsg or Hsg1 is a 1km map.

Hsg 15 is a 1500 meter map.

Hsg2 is a 2km map.

I don't believe anyone else has a naming system that shows the size of the map in the name.

Hope that helps a little.

Good Hunting.

Many thanks - that's what I've been doing so far, but obviously there are a lot of scenarios to click through to work out which are larger and which are smaller (or for example, to get 3 or 4 small ones to pick from), which is why I thought a list (or even a spreadsheet so they can be sorted by size, turns, year etc) would be quite handy.

But I agree, what's there is very useful

Killjoy12 -> RE: Where to go after Boot Camp? (5/25/2011 5:35:38 PM)

In the future, can you add a filter for the unit density and/or map size?

Perhaps MR can add that to his wishlist.
