Into Darkness: 1939-1945 scenario. I totally thought this was lost and forgot how much effort went into it during the TOAW 3.5 development period. It was finished subject to further changes with TOAW IV. It's a monster and meant for PBEM only, so I don't know how much of an interest there would be to finishing it.
But here it is, and all I can attest to is that it does load in TOAW IV. The manual spells out everything in considerable detail. It incorporates all of the same things from Third Reich 42-45 - like the German reserve system, allied bombing of Axis industry, etc.
This goes a lot further in a (controversial) attempt to model in more detail Naval Warfare, Convoys, Uboats, naval transport levels, etc and so forth which I know and have heard "can't be done" - "shouldn't be done", etc. ad infinitum. I tinkered with it fairly heavily back then and observed there to be a possibility it could get pretty close. Where TOAW IV treats ships best when they are 1 per line, the scenario still has "8 destroyers as 1 line item" -- so that much is not optimized.
It also attempts to model the Axis lack of oil, war booty, and uses Daniel McBride's/Gary Grigsby's War in the East model for Soviet factory evacuations, etc., etc.
Anyways -- adding it here, if there's enough interest, the naval components will get revised (1 ship per line item) or possibly push it into an abstract model.
Until finding it and actually opening it up, I really forgot how close it was to completion. Feel free to email with thoughts/ideas/feedback. Thanks!
