As per thread subject - all of the scenarios display 21st Dec 1970 as the current date when I check the weather report. Not a major issue, but a bit of a nuisance playing the Falklands War etc. back in the good ol' 1970. It seems that I am getting such situation in all of the scenarios I launch; of course I haven't checked each of them, but those that I did are invariably set in Dec 21st 1970 according to the game interface no matter what the history and the orders section say.

The ability to enter a date when writing a scenario was only added to the game recently. Much later than the stock scenarios that came with the game originally. Those scenarios would have to be edited individually to enter appropriate dates.

Thanks for having that clarified for me, a bit of a drag though, but a tiny one.

The question is why did I pick 1970-12-21?

We would welcome any help adding start dates to the commondb scenarios. I can them stuff them back into the battlesets. commondb means EC2003 and newer battlesets. It is too painful to modify pre-commondb battlesets.
