Tanaka -> New Mod: WIE to WAW Conversion (7/13/2020 7:07:16 AM)

All units and start placements in WIE converted to WAW. I found so many missing units and different placements and strengths annoying to my OCD self. Germany also starts with 100 MPPs as per WIE and not 50. I wanted the same game as WIE only bigger in WAW. I found it only made the game more challenging and more fun not less and I did not find it too cluttering on the map. For example Italy now starts with the 11th Army in Albania as per WIE. Italy gets their ships back. UK gets ships back. Spain gets their light tanks back, etc. Placements and strengths all converted from WIE.

In addition to these changes Italy has a weak submarine squadron in Massawa as per history in the Red Sea.

That's about it.

Lastly I have changed the turn times to simultaneous turns as opposed to alternating. This means both sides play their turn in the same two week period as opposed to one two week period vs the next two week period. This can always be changed back to alternating in the editor if you wish. Feel free to see if you like it (I find it much more enjoyable) and if you have any questions, additions, or corrections please feel free to comment. Thanks, enjoy, and good luck!

Updated! I missed some comments in the mod section and have responded today. Thanks all!

There are two files; which one should I download?

Also, do you know if I need to do something when I get the pop-up telling me "some scripts need to be updated" when placing extra troops on the map?

Edit: You said both files. Duh.

Also, I did get the modding question answered elsewhere.




Alcibiades73 -> RE: New Mod: WIE to WAW Conversion (5/6/2021 8:20:35 PM)

It doesn't load either in-game or through editor :(




Alcibiades73 -> RE: New Mod: WIE to WAW Conversion (5/6/2021 8:28:07 PM)

Also, may I ask which British ships - and at what location - were deleted in the transition from WIE to WAW? I'd like to make the appropriate modding changes myself.

Still works fine for me.

I need to update to the new patch but it is still playable.

Click on the arrow next to the name of the scen and you will see a download option.

Click the download option. Download and unzip with winzip.

Unzip this. Put these files in C:\Users\xxx\OneDrive\Documents\My Games\Strategic Command WWII - World at War\Campaigns

Can't remember all of the units I added back but you can compare both games in the editors...

I will try again then. Is it compatibility with the current patch then? Since the mod is not updated to the current patch, then that causes the inability to load? (Also, do major patches always make mods unplayable - as is the case in many games?)

As for the missing British units, I don't have the other game. So I cannot compare in the editors :(

No it loads and works fine. Make sure the folders look exactly the same as the others in the campaigns folder.

I did everything as you instructed, and it's still a no go. In-game, I get the error message saying "could not find directory..." In the editor, I also get an error message saying "could not find..."

The folders must look like this:

Thanks; I finally got it to work!




Alcibiades73 -> RE: New Mod: WIE to WAW Conversion (5/7/2021 7:32:09 PM)

By the way, if new patches do not break mods, then why do you say you must update it?
