Some other ideas for DE scripts:
1. DE for the UK to activate Leclerc Force from Equatorial Africa if they had supported Free France. A half strength mech division could arrive in Southern Libya (maybe at Siwah) for an MPP cost in 1941. Or add Kufra Oasis as well.
2. DE for the UK to use poison gas on Sealion invaders. A yes would hit the strength of invading troops but swing USA and USSR slightly away and cause condemnation by Turkey, Spain and Sweden.
3. DE for the Germans to create the Ukraine when there are no USSR units within 10 hexes of Kiev and Odessa. This would then add a Ukrainian corps to Kiev and it would stop partisan attacks in the new territory. There should be an ongoing MPP cost to the Germans to "support the Ukraine and redirect food production to Ukrainian civilians". The new nation could have a limited OOB available of a garrison and a couple additional divisions.
4. DE for USSR to send Joseph Beria to Caucasus to quell ethnic uprisings for an MPP cost. If they choose NO then supply hits against USSR hexes could occasionally happen when Axis troops reach Rostov.
5. When Yugolsvaia surrenders an Italian DE to create the puppet state of Montenegro. A garrison could appear here for an MPP cost.
Some other ideas for flavour:
1. Add the DN Schleswig-Holstein to port of Danzig (which should be German to start) at a strength of 2. Change the action points of DNs to one or two and make them non-reinforceable.
2. Add the UK airbase of Habbaniyah near Ramadi as a fortified town with a garrison that activates when Iraq goes Axis. (You'd have to adjust the Iraqi surrender to allow for the additional UK unit near Baghdad) Add an Iraqi cavalry division in Mosul. This may give some additional interest in operations in Iraq. I would also suggest an Italian DE to support the Iraqis by sending a medium bomber (as they did). A half strength Iraqi medium bomber could be activated for an MPP cost. If the Italians do this then a DE for the UK to activate the Wellington and Lancaster bombers at Abadan. A UK Medium bomber could appear there. Really makes Iraq more interesting.
3.If the Germans say YES to invasion of Norway a half strength Force Z DD should appear in Narvik port. Instead of the garrison that appears there it should be the 11th Mtn Division at 3 strength. Hit Narvik with a supply script to give any Allied Narvik force a chance. Again, just to make some of the smaller theatres more interesting.
4. Add a strength script to hit Axis naval units next to Gibralter. This way there may be a cost for "running the Rock". "The guns of Gibralter strike Axis ships in the straits".
5. Add supply scripts to hit UK supply in Palestine if under garrisoned as " Zionist Rebels attack British Supply".
6. If the Allies run all of their ships into the Adriatic then there should be a warning and Italian mobilization can take a jump and they could mobilize maritime bombers and shore defenses. (coastal guns). This would give a dis-incentive for the Allies to suicide the French fleet against Italy in 1939-40. Yugoslavia could also get upset at Allied naval movements near their territory.
Some other thoughts for adjustments:
1. Remove a couple more German armies in favour of divisions in the force pool.
2. The Germans should start with a half strength maritime bomber in Bremen and a half strength MB.
3. Change the names of a couple of the British Empire units that appear in Egypt to South African and Indian unit names. You already have the Australian and New Zealanders.
4. The UK should start with the Coldstream Guards garrison in Sidi Barrani.
5. The UK should start with a garrison in Jerusalem.
6. The UK should start with two half strength MBs instead of one extra DD. While they lacked DDs in 1939-40 they did have a large flotilla of what Churchill called the "small ships", frigates, minesweepers, corvettes and MBs.
All just ideas for you.... [:)]
Thanks for the feedback, I've incorporated some of these. Some I will review again in the future, such as Iraq but some others I am not capable. I had assistance with sprites and flags, and have had bad experiences trying to alter these on my own so adding countries like Ukraine and Montenegro are out. Also i'm not confident that the AI will handle MB correctly which is why I think they are only appearing in PBEM games on the opponent side.
