I have made my huge new 1914 Mod fully compatible with the 1.30 patched version off the game, I'm play testing at the moment, but I will make a download available for anyone who would like a new challenge!

The French Army of Africa Infantry unit is now in the mod, plus Algiers is now a Capital city.

( This was the Army that the German Battlecruiser Goeben & Light Cruiser Breslau, were meant to attack, and disrupt this troop transport from Algieria to Toulon early in 1914.)

The Russian City Tallinn & Port ( Reval ) added to the map. With the Russian Battleship based at Petrograd, this is a very strong defensive position, Germany will not find it easy, to gain any foothold in this part of the Baltic.

Antwerp now 2nd Capital City in Belgium, due to the early capture of Brussels by Germany, Belgium is suddenly left with no way to build any forces in game, I feel this is an error, historically after the fall of Brussels, the King made Antwerp the new Capital.

HISTORY LESSON BELOW!

Belgium had a weak fighting force of 117,000 troops, but the Belgians erected several defensive positions to keep out any invaders. The Germans invaded on August 4, declaring war on all of the Allied Powers. The 1st Army, 2nd Army, and 3rd Army were sent to invade Belgium, despite its declaration of neutrality in World War I. That same day, an advanced force of six German brigades crossed the German border and attacked the Belgian city of Liège, which was a weak city yet surrounded by a ring of fortresses. The Germans quickly seized the city, but the forts threatened the Germans' timetable. The Germans bombarded the Belgians with Big Bertha artillery and Krupp guns, but the city only fell on August 16. The real German invasion was supposed to occur on August 15, but the resistance in the city of Liège had side tracked them. On August 18, the Germans made their real invasion, and despite the delay, the Germans were able to advance down the Meuse River and capture Namur. On August 20, the Germans under the command of Alexander von Kluck seized Brussels, forcing King Albert I of Belgium and his government to retreat to the vital port city of Antwerp, which they made their capital. It was pounded away at by German artillery and mortars, but Belgian resistance stiffened as the war turned from fighting an invading force to defending their monarch. The Germans did not subdue the defences of the city until October 10th, 1914, when the last elements of Belgian opposition surrendered.

This is a proposed general fix for the 1914 Scenario,to what I believe is too strong an attack against Belgium early war. Historically Germany attacked using 3 Armies, but the game has 6 Infantry units plus 1 Cavalry and 1 Artillery unit amassed against Liege, with the result that it gets over run and Captured by turn 3 or 6th Aug 1914.

With my fix in placed swapping the Garrison unit from Liege, with the Infantry unit from Brussels, Liege with stands the initial assault, and is capture next turn, which just happens to coincide with the historical time, not only that, but it has the added bonus that Brussels is captured the next turn after that, which is also the date Brussels was captured, spooky or what!

I have also changed Antwerp from a Fortress to a Capital City, which allows Belgium to at least use its production to build a garrison, I also added the City of Brugge for good measure, so that the Garrison unit when built has a hex to go in, because normally in the game you can't place diddly squat. Gamers reaction to these proposed changes are most welcome cheers!

The mod is still being play tested, but rest assured I will make a download link available in the not to distant future, many thanks to anyone who is anxious to get playing the mod cheers!

Hi, I'm helping with the 1.40 patch at the present time, so I'm very busy with that, so as you say I will have to wait on the 1.40 patch release, before I find out how its going to effect my mod!

Now that the update to Ver 1.4 is released, would you please advise on progress to a compatible update of your mod.
I also want to register my interest in the naval part (Armoured Cruisers and Dreadnaughts) that you shelved earlier

Hi folks, sorry to say but I have still to test the mod with the 1.40 release,I have been very busy with the new patch.I'm now working on 1.50.To use the mod in its present form,its not compatible with the standard game,if you want to play it, you would have to have a second install off the game,to a different directory,as it has additional unit types,naval wise there are Pre-Dreadnoughts,Armoured cruisers & destroyers,plus changes to the naval graphics.

Is it possible to use the mod on the ipad version? How would I do this?

I really like SP and really like to play the CPs, but threw version has kinda killed my enjoyment. I'm hoping this mod might be the way to go. It sounds like a LOT of quality work has gone into it.
