Many old scenarios look a new life ?


East Front III will ship with a completely new set of scenarios, depicting scenes from German invasion of Poland, Winter War, and the first year of Barbarossa.

If anyone wants to convert old classics, like "Terror at Borisov" as Ivan the Big is showing in a JTCS EF II screenshot above, they are of course welcome to do so. EF III will ship with a complete set of editors, as is the plan with all new games.

There's already been a plethora of old classics converted to Middle East format, so hope to see that trend to continue in Eastern Front as well

Yes, there are plans. We can't say when (which game, which update) that will happen, however.

The biggest problem with the scenario generator are the deploy of the units

Yes, that's why I think there is room for improvement for the Battle Generator. For example, I would like to have the option to pick out my units before I start the battle as well as the objectives.

Many only generate a map and save it then start up a OOB file and scenario file

It is not going to be supported any more. However, I will be keeping it on my hard drive for a loooooong Time to come till a game comes along that exceeds it (I personally like some of the graphics like trees better than CSME - somehow the scale of some of the vegetation in CSME is not as realistic as JTCS.

Lots of things bubbling under at Mods forum...

Here's something XLVIIIPzKorp has been busy with lately. These take advantage of the 3DBaseCell parameter in platoon data, so unit types are to have their own individual bases with a nation.



It is getting crowded out there:

Example here. See the Royal Navy and Airforce bases together with regular Army and Para bases there.

Game immersion can often be about the details being there. I don't know about you guys, but I really love his work here. He's kindly allowed this base mod to be included in the coming 2.01 UPDATE. Thank you!

I believe someone on the forum mentioned that they liked seeing what types of weapons and infantry platoon would be carrying, so they could identify some of the capabilities of the units. In some of the Middle East countries, that information is available under F2 as part of the unit description.

I'm making a point to ensure that all the countries in Vietnam will have that information, as shown below:

I will go back and include the weapons for Middle East 2.02 (maybe I can squeeze it into 2.01)

Does this mean that we could get separate SS and Soviet Guards unit bases in East Front III and separate USMC bases in the Vietnam game?

You'll have separate bases in Vietnam for the US Army, US Marine Corps, Cavalry (ACR's and 7th Cavalry) and Airborne.

You'll have separate bases in EFIII for Guards, NKVD and regular army for the Soviets and Wehrmacht, SS, DAK, Luftwaffe (Fallsch.) and GrossDeutschland for the Germans.

NVA and VC use the same flag, but there are different flags for VM and PAVN (post 1975)

And another little 3D mod am working on, replaces the minefields, arty plots and fortifications.Minefields are color-coded for yellow, orange and red for small medium and large concentrations. Arty plot is a smoke marker instead of a 2d marker, I like 3D with 3D!!
