My NATO Counters Mod for Random Games updated to support v2.15i. Currently I'm thinking of ceasing future support of this particular mod in favor of this one: Solitaire/Multiplayer NATO Mod. It is much less time consuming and less error prone to maintain.

Sorry to hear that, I was hoping one day Vic might include it in vanilla ATG.
How come this is more likely to give errors than on solitaire maps?

All I'm saying is that one mod as a lot more detail to attend to as I update it for each new patch, thus more opportunity for me to make a mistake. Mistakes have been few and are easily corrected. That said, I'm thinking maintaining a single NATO mod would be less confusing for users.

The new update looks very good. But where can I find instructions on how to use all the new things? For instance I see we now have generals but I don't know how to rename them or move them or assign them to specific hqs ect. Where is this officer pool you speak of?

Is it really true that the ai will now build and fight navies?

Thanks

To rename, simply click on their name. To access the officer pool see screenshot below.

I am fighting AI navies all right... mind you, it's the normal AI, not AI+ or higher.

Vic, I know you are probably up to your neck in work on DC3 and (workname) Empire but I thought there was at least one more patch slated for ATG. I recall you mentioning a feature that would allow you to design and build your own armored vehicles. Is this and perhaps a small number of other improvements still planned?

Yes I did say that. However I have to be honest there is little time available to me due to a big number of reasons. I would like to see that feature out with ATG though.

What might be an option is that I release the engine features (which were mostly finished) and documentation but do not include an implementation except maybe an example scenario.

Best,
Vic
