I have been informed that the zip download might be corrupted,if anyone is having problems I have done this smaller download with only the most vital files included to make it easier I hope.

Also I'm sure there will be a few ship class mix ups in the game database,for that I'm sorry, but it is very easily sorted using the editor that I attached to the zip file,any that I'm told about I will correct on my end,and release an updated version of the scenario in the coming weeks thanks for any feedback in advance,I do hope the gamers like the scenario because it is a lot off work putting it all together,a huge amount of data to sort on my own you know hehehehehehe

Here is the new smaller zip download that has only the most vital files needed to run the Dreadnoughts at War scenario,I will make available in the future, approx monthly any correction's of database errors found.

Ok folks this is going to be my last update for 2 or 3 weeks,so here is the most recent database corrections for Dreadnoughts at War scenario, the time is 15.40 pm 29/6/2010 please note the senario is perfectly playable as is,as I have still to come across any game breakers.

this is a very small download holding only the database files no art work cheers.

Rysyonok this corrects the errors you found within the database and a few more,mainly that some of the later arrival carriers had the wrong squadrons attached.

Hi folks the next update has returned the ship factors back in line with stock settings,this means that the durability settings,endurance,armour,are all back to near normal as per any other stock scenario,but all the ships still have better manouverability and Anti-aircraft ability,to allow for the fact that there are a great many more aircraft added to this scenario that are not in any other stock scenario,I'm also adding a huge amount of flexability in regard to the starting bases where ships are in port.

The main reason that I have reduced my edited increased durability settings,back to what is nearer the standard settings, was that while doing alot of play testing, results showed that in most cases the ships were repairing even torpedo hits,which would have otherwise sunk them in any of the stock scenarios.

As for removing the armour values that I had added to Merchant ships and destroyers,was that in real life they had no armour, so why should they have armour now in this game.

As for reducing the my edited ships endurance factors back,to historical actual fuel consumption values,was a no brainer because the game for both sides, I have vastly increased fuel storage using the editor,to what is available in any other stock scenario,so there was no need to increase the range of the ships beyond what they could achieve in real life anyway.

The reason behind me altering alot of the starting position of ships and aircraft,from the campaign games, is that I'm going with the assumption with my scenario, that the Japanese and the Allies have pre-planned there forces distrubution,before hostilities start.

NB: I don't know if anyone has wondered why, I have reduced all of the submarines to launch only one torpedo per attack,well the reason is this,using the editor the standard dud setting rate was round about the 60% mark,I have reduced that to 10%,with the effect that 50% more torpedos will now explode against the target ship hull,so now that more torpedos are causing damage,there is no reason to fire the same amount of torpedo as were reqiured previously,this has the added bonus of all submarines staying on patrol longer,because they now don't need to return to port to re-arm as often.

Here is a little teaser of what I'm working on at present,both sides are getting new Task forces added using the AI, there are far more submarine task forces setup from the start to harrass the enemy bases,plus various other task forces on bombardment missions and anti-submarine patrols.

Hey guys are you all happy enough for me to include these new task forces by tweaking the AI for the Dreadnoughts at War scenarios next update, or would you prefer me to do another scenario with the enhanced task force setups?

I've been wondering that myself. I'm not a programmer like you are of course, and don't completely comprehend all of the intricacies that go into DAW. But I have wondered if the AI can handle all of the new ships that are being added. Its possible that tweaking the TFs will at least give it a fighting chance at the beginning.

Hey Connfire I ain't a programmer by any stretch of the immagination,I just like to experiment here and there with the editor,and creating new task forces is pretty easy once you get the hang of it,by the way I have decided that I'm making a new scenario,it's called TORA TORA TORA
