Very glad to see our old favorite Steel Panthers World At War is being redone.
(It was first offered for free by Matrixgames when SPI's original Steel Panthers became incapable of working easily on Windows platform machines.)

As for other games?

Maybe fifteen years ago there was a game called "Castles" which allowed a player (or players) to build castles in detail from te ground up.
The player(s) also had the option to fight it out with other players, (or against AI players).
There were even screens of dialogue for a sense of "role play".
Te role play part IMHO was not needed.

The game also came with some BBC movie files from BBC which were very interesting, informative, and helped the flavor of that medieval era.

The player also had decisions to make, types of troops to create, livestock and agriculture to consider and the morale of "the peasants".

Many other games out there which we would pay for, so I will keep my "wish list" to just this one.

BTW, It would not need to be the actual game I mentioned, just the genre and era.

I'd settle for a good realistic Space War game - Think Command: Modern Naval / air combined with TAOW IV. Good 3D star map made from real data and believable technologies. Somewhere like GDW's Space 2300.

Or I'd settle for a computer game of Avalon Hill's Longest Day!
A good Guadalcanal ground campaign game would be nice, add the naval battles too please.

Heck I'd be happy if they would fix Jutland/Distant Guns so they work like they should have in the first place.

* Steel Panthers III Brigade Command redone by Matrix or The Cammo Workshop with all the bells and whistles the squad level game got!

*Emperor of the Fading Suns, no changes at all, just put an AI in it (this time) and allow to work on modern machines.

* Star General ( yeah, that's right, the off neglected bastard of the 5 Star Series) Again, an AI that does something, and LARGER planets for ground combat, nothing else needed for "beer and pretzel" 2x game :)

*Age of Rifles. No jokes here, we just need this game back!!

My dream games...

* Operational WW1 aviation game... it may happen if the computer version of Bloody April goes well.

* Strategic Feudal Japan or China. I'm thinking Strategic versions of 'Sengoku Jidai' or 'Mandate of Heaven' by Ageod not Total War or Oriental Empires.

Something in the realm of "Uncommon Valor". Starting with the Japanese invasion of the Bismarcks in early 1942 and continuing into 1944, like the time covered by "Fire in the Sky" before and after.

I wish to see a Squad Leader release where EVERY current ASL nation's counter mix was done as if it had been released in Squad Leader.
And not one rule not in the Squad Leader release was crammed into the darned box.
And of course, all the current maps, but without all of the convoluted new terrain.

I've pondered doing it myself actually. It would be easier if I was the same age I was when I first bought Squad Leader though.

For the computer, hmm. I'd like a digital version of Up Front that was design wise identical to the physical board game without an AI (would likely be as dumb as they always are) and able to be played as easily as say Battle Academy is for human vs human matches. My only problem with my copy of the board game, is it is so good, my copy looks battered. Played it so much. Funny is watching 3 girls play it, one a wargamer and two entirely not wargamers :)

An updated Age of Rifles along the lines of Fields of Glory 2? Unlike TOAW, my memories of AoR are foggy. The game was certainly ahead of its time.

I would LOVE to see a PC version of the old Avalon Hill classics like D-Day, Afrika Korps, Waterloo etc...

These and redo of Third Reich PC (so actually ALL the normal rules work and there are NO bad hexes).

Strategy game overlay American Civil War game on top of Norbsoft's Civil War series. Where you move and play diplomacy on top and have real time battles with built units from the top in tactical battles around the map. Kinda like Total War but with Norb's combat engine and the American Civil War.

Some other games I'd like to see come to pc from my childhood days made by Milton Bradley American Heritage games are: "Battlecry" (interesting american civil war game), "Broadsides" and "Dogfight"
I musta played a bajillion games of those with my childhood friends before we graduated.

Dogfight was my actual favorite. WWI air warfare has always been my favorite of any kind of wargaming. WINGS on the Amiga was the most fun but Red Baron by Sierra was the most realistic I think.

You literally want WITP, (or it's adult but younger brother WITP:AE.

They use the same game engine and expand UV to the entire war in the Pacific theater.

They come with scenarios and campaigns if size is an issue?

I'll go along with an updated Age of Rifles. But honestly, there are many, many other games worthy.

I would also like to see a game dedicated to the Korean war, which was the first real test of the U.N., and the outcome of which altered the destiny of many nations for years.
The French were unable to maintain their hold on "Indochina" as the U.S. was already committed in Korea, and therefore, France was the first major power to refuse participation in that U.N. "police action"

Many folks do not remember that in 1949 when North Korea first hit the South, the U.S. troops located there and the South Korean army were pushed all the way back to a very small perimeter around Pusan, and without a massive military build-up, South Korea would have ended right then.

I just feel that conflict deserves more than a few "scenarios", and perhaps an updating to a couple of nice games we had on the subject in the wonderful DOS days.

Good call. I don't recall *any* efforts to put this into a modern computer wargame. That would be interesting.

A modern remake of "V.C." or other Vietnam-era game would also be a welcome entrant.

Ditto lastly to whoever said WiTP:AE II. I'd settle on a well-designed Mediterranean version of WiTP:AE.

On my side, I would be happy if Matrix decides to do a rebirth of Crown of Glory Emperor Edition with current graphics. Engine is great but the old graphics needs a revamp. Please Matrix...

Well if this thread is widened to a wishlist generally and not just previous wargames re-made, then I have only two computer wargame wishes (aside from a completed MWIF). I know the first is never going to happen (although perhaps the second is maybe, perhaps possible) but that doesn't stop me dreaming....

A proper, detailed War in the Mediterranean (June 1940 - May 1943) game - naval (individual ship), air (Squadron) and land (Division/Brigade).

A proper, detailed Guadalcanal Campaign (August 1942 - February 1943) game - naval (individual ship), air (Squadron) and land (Regiment/Battalion).

+1 to Age of Rifles and all the old Avalon Hill games. Would like to add SPI's Battle for the Ardennes game. Loved that game, had 1940 and 1944 OOBs. Good times.

In general I would like to see more tactical games at the company or platoon level in any era post ACW and linear formations. Those seem most difficult to make and I have never understood why.
