Hey guys:

Just make an editor then the player base will be making more scenarios than you can snake a stick at.
No need to spent your time on scenarios with so much else lacking.

I respectfully agree. An editor, or even more scenarios, while nice, would be a c or d priority in my opinion at this point.

it is always good to get any feedback and as much as possible ideas from the players.

Here are mine for possible scenarios:
1. 1805 to 1807 campaign (Jena, Aspern, Wagram)
2. 1812 to 1815 campaign (Russia, Leipzig and Waterloo)
3. 1798 to 1802 campaign (Marengo)

as you may be aware of the first and second are in the original Avalon Hill box-edition where you already can see the setup which I think is not too bad anyhow.

... I sent you a possible bug via email, which I discovered playing Prussia besiging Würzbug. Have you received that?

I sent it on Sunday - it is maybe too gig in size as I attached the .sav and a screenshot (22,5 MB)
If you like I will send it out again

cheers

I completely agree. Why waste your time hardcoding scenarios? If you create an editor the community will come up with all kinds of crazy scenarios.

It would have made sense to ship with a tiny scenario for a tutorial, assuming intent to market to players who never played the board game.  Or even scenarioS, demonstrating different aspects (vignettes), because any play of any tutorial is likely to deviate substantially from the instructions unless you have a way to rig outcomes.

In my opinion some good scenarios should be:

a) from 1809 (to spain and austria to disaster)
b) from 1812 (russia and germany)
c) from 1796
---
d) every 1700-1763 campaing should be really interesting with this engine (i think for this we have to wait an editor)

Forgive my lack of history here but what would be some of the 1700-1763 campaigns? Would this parhaps be the Silesian wars and other campaigns of Fredrick the Great?

Might there be a playtester who could use your existing editor to start cranking out scenarios in parallel with development? This task could be delegated. Ideally a dual set of original EiA and EiH variant (v4.0?) could be created and added to the updates as they get completed. It can't be that hard to create a basic scenario file with country status and OOBs, is it? Scenario-specific AI might be an issue depending on what you've set up, but at least let someone else do the grunt work.

We're collecting a few testers as we speak so to answer your question, I guess it's possible. I'll just have to see what kind of bandwidth we will have...

I think a 15-20 year scenario would be great....so long as dominant powers can change.
An editor to create this scenario, or perhaps even allow gaming errors to be corrected while playing would serve a double purpose.

All the war in the Age of Malbourough (Battle of Blenheim for istance, the Great Northern War and battle of Narva and Poltava, Russian-Turkish wars, Italian Wars (Siege of Turin); wars of Spanish and Austrian and Polish succession)

And again the Wars of Frederick the Great (Silesian wars, 7 years wars)

1792-1815 scenario; that was always the second most played behind 1805-1815 in our group.

Thnx, for asking.

The big question is the question for scenarios or campaings ?
Scenaries in EIA are supposed to be for fewer players and dont include all of the maps.
With less interest in the diplomacy parts.

Other campaigns just run through other time frames.
Also i think game needs to have rules about dominant MP variations. Like French inf dont start out as prime veterans in 1792 :)

I think these 3 would be a good start. Short sweet and to the point. Just make sure the game can handle the victory conditions so it's not an open ended scenario. I am not one who would use an editor, so I am not worried about that. I would rather see the scenarios in a patch premade.

This one also would be good as long as the leaders are available. Having Suvarov and Nappy as a "C" commander would be important.

I hate to sound like a broken record, but can you guys fix bugs first?

Also, when that is done, could you buff up the AI.

If you release an editor the community will flood you guys with scenarios for free.

I have the same idea - the full campaign takes a LOT of time so having shorter scenarios to play is a must
