I know I appreciate your support. But, don't do any mods yet until we hear from everyone in our "band".
You have to agree with Javafiend.

Modder, to Band of Brother ( as apparently i don't be in the gang Ah Ah )
The King of Mods is at home everywhere

Which Graphic would you for units and Markers ?
ASL campaign == asl graphics

And OK don't forget you next report

ORIGINAL: javafiend

OK, Band of Brothers! Here is the latest version of the campaign map.

I used the Coastal Fortress/Tactiques pdf (links above).

The version they have in the pdf only has a single bridge, which is what I put in the map. But, depending on the scenario,
there are more bridges. For example, TAC65 "The Last Bridge" SSR says that only one bridge is destroyed.

Next, the multi-hex, multi-story building in 6O3-6N4-6M6 is not present in the Coastal Fortress pdf, so I deleted it.

There is a flooded Anti-Tank Ditch in 6Q5 thru to 6Q10. TOTH doesn't have that terrain type, so I substituted Trench.

There is no good stone building in the palette for 23O4,23O5,23N3,23N4,23M4 -- so I put a couple of row-houses there. This
would be a good candidate for a modded stone building.

And, the Reichstag is 11-hexes in size. There is nothing in the palette that comes close to matching that "Rt" overlay.
So, I put stone building #142 hex "a" -- "k" in its place. The idea is that we can get a map mod for that.
I respectfully suggest that we take up KhanDam2 on his very kind offer to do some modding for this project.

Guys, let me know if there are any changes you would like to this map.

Game On!



Thank you for the map. I have made TAC 73(Himmler's House) and submitted it to rico. I have offered to do TAC 74, but I don't have the overlays to know if anything changes for TAC 74.

I looked at the SSR's/overlays for TAC74 (Red Flag), and the map seems to match that for the other 3 scenarios.
The TAC74 SSR's expand more on the level-to-level fighting in the Reichstag, Ammo Shortage, and Booby Traps.
All good fun, but nothing that fits TOTH as currently implemented.

I think you are good to go with the map you have.

You can find scans of overlays at boardgamegeek.com in the ASL games. For example, many of the overlays are in the
Croix de Guerre game:

No change, very good work.

Questions : After this campaign, what's next? do you have any preferences about battles, countries, historical units?

In ASL format, of course!

In all case i'm In!

Gung Ho Brother!

Here is my first draft of TAC 73.

I am running into a snag on TAC 74. I am trying to print the overlay, but I can't control the size. TAC 74 requires all of boards 23 and 6, not just rows R-GG like the other three, I believe.

I have professional printers help in my family, but it will take me some time to get them printed for myself.(Maybe, it is copyrighted.) If anyone would like to make the map for TAC 74, or if they want to do TAC 74, it would be a great help to keep the project going.

Mike,

For TAC74, only hexrows numbered >=5 on board 6 and all of board 23 are in play. This is the same map layout as TAC66,
The Final Assault, which I have attached. You should be able to export those maps and import them into TAC74.
(Or, just copy TAC66, and hack in a new OOB and victory conditions.)

Thank you for the suggestion, Java. I "lifted" the map from your scenario, per your advise.

I have TAC 74 made, but I need to run through each side at least once before I can call it a beta.

I love the jpeg! Thanks for fixing up the buildings. I had to make close, but imperfect, choices because of the
buildings in the default palette. I really appreciate 23O4,23O5,23N3,23N4,23M4.

And the Reichstag! A work of Art!!

I will look at this in detail tonight. I love it already.

The map looks excellent. I started on TAC 74 last night with the map that Java graciously made. However, it appears that this map has Java's blessings, so I will redo the scenario on this map.

It's a beautiful map, but I am not able to open it. The editor says it was made with a previous version and cannot open it. Is there a workaround or a fix for this?

Thanks!

how are you triying to open it ?

the best way on the editor , is to open the existing scenario if it's already done or create a new
then use setting menu, and fix the scenario attributes to map size : 1 x 2 (sectors)
then in maps menu import map into sector choose sector 1 and load Reichtag_s1.map make the same thing with sector s2 in sector 2


at this time you would have the map but without the good building, 1 hex road, the at Ditch, orchad it's normal you don't have already the mod i think i finish it near monday but you can use the map now for working on the scenario.

if it's doesn't work maybe i have done something wrong but i don't thinks, let me know in this case

if you already have trouble send me by PM the .scn file i put the map and i send you back by PM

cheers

OK, I got it.

I have boards, and the scenario is made with those two boards. I get it now.

I was not trying to import, but rather just trying to open the maps.

Thanks!

Salut Rico,

Je partage complétement ton analyse, même si j'ignorais à combien de joueurs
on pouvait estimer la communauté TotH. Je sais par Jörgen (Paullus) que Peter
a pris des vacances bien méritées depuis la semaine dernière.

Si j'ai bien compris, il développe TotH en solo depuis plusieurs années sur
son temps de loisir... Rien à voir donc avec la taille "hollywoodienne" des
productions du type Warcraft, World of Tanks et autres !

Au retour de ses congés, il doit faire un bilan d'étape avec Jörgen (selon ce
dernier) sur les problèmes à régler et les améliorations qu'il serait possible
selon lui d'apporter au jeu, après le "0-Day patch" de début avril 2016.

Sans en attendre l'implémentation hyper détaillée de concepts issus d'ASL,
d'ailleurs pas forcément souhaitables, il est vrai que plusieurs fonctions
que j'estime indispensables devraient être prises en compte -tout en restant
dans les limites du raisonnable afin de ne pas alourdir excessivement
le moteur- soit, par ordre de priorité :

1° La possibilité de "Smoke laying" pour certaines unités d'infanterie
(Génie, Elite) en plus de l'Arty et des AFV. Un bouton Smoke existe dans la
fenêtre de sélection de tir de ces deux-là, mais je n'ai jamais pu (su) l'utiliser.

2° Le Transport des fantassins et des SW, car à quoi servent les camions
ou les half-tracks sinon à faire de la figuration ?

3° Les "Major Nations" incontournables : Chine ; France (tout de même !) ;
Italie & Japon, plus deux génériques "Allied Minor" et "Axis Minor".

4° Les "Hex Edges" (murets, haies, clôtures) pour plus de "rugosité" dans
les déplacements ; de "Cover/Hindrance/Obstacles" sur la "Line of Sight".

5° Enfin, quelques fioritures qui relèveraient bien plus de SL que d'ASL telles
que "Mines", "Roadblocks", "Barbed Wire" ainsi que des "Fortified
Locations" juste un peu plus variées. Ex.: "Improved position" hors
des bâtiments ; une ou deux classes de "Blockhaus/Pillbox".

L'intégration de bâtiments à étage("1st & 2nd Floor") me semblerait
également utile, ainsi qu'une seconde classe de ponts, destructible par DC ou
avec l'Arty >= 150mm.

Voilà je n'en jette pas plus, la cour me semblant déjà bien (trop ?)
pleine pour un développeur "free lance" !
Excellente fin de semaine,
A+
Lilian

Hi Rico,

I completely share your analysis, although I did not know how many players
one could estimate Toth community. I know by Jörgen (Paulus) Peter
took a much needed vacation since last week.

If I understand correctly, he developed Toth solo for several years on
his leisure time ... Nothing to do with the size so "Hollywood" of
productions of Warcraft type World of Tanks and more!

Back from his holidays, he must make a progress report with Jörgen (whichever
final) on the issues to be addressed and improvements that could be
according to him to bring to the game, after the "0-day patch" in early April, 2016.

Without waiting hyper detailed implementation of concepts from ASL,
also not necessarily desirable, it is true that several functions
I consider necessary should be taken into account -while remaining
within reasonable limits in order not to increase excessively
the motor-be, in order of priority:

1. The possibility of "Smoke laying" for some infantry units
(Engineering, Elite) in addition to the Arty and AFV. Smoke a button exists in the
shot selection window for these two, but I've never been (able) to use it.

2. The transport of infantry and SW, because what are the trucks
or otherwise half-tracks to make up the numbers?

3. The "Major Nations" unavoidable: China; France (still!);
Italy & Japan, plus two generic "Allied Minor" and "Axis Minor".

4. The "Hex Edges" (walls, hedges, fencing) for more "roughness" in
travel; of "Cover / Hindrance / Obstacles" on the "Line of Sight".

5. Finally, a few frills that would fall well over SL that such ASL
that "Mines", "Roadblocks", "Barbed Wire" as well as "Fortified
Rentals "just a bit more varied. Ex .:" Improved position "out
buildings ; one or two classes of "Blockhaus / Pillbox".

The integration of floor buildings ( "1st & 2nd Floor") would seem to me
Also useful, and a second class of bridges, destructible by DC or
with Arty> = 150mm.

That I do not throw more, the court already seeming me (too)
full for a developer "free lance"!
Great weekend,
A +
Lilian
