This is not a Northern Fury scenario but it comes from the Harpoon PDF that HalfLifeExpert posted a few days ago: http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4624718&mpage=1&key=�

The first one is a bloody little affair that is quite quick and painful.

Please let me know if there are things that need fixing.

Interesting. I've played it several times from both sides, and I feel that it is heavily skewed in the favor of NATO. The Styx missiles are next to worthless and will really only get through if the defending AI is stupid about allocating SAM's (ie firing at the helo / crossing targets instead of missiles heading right at them). On top of that the Soviet ship only has 3" guns but is facing ships with 5" and 4.5" guns.

The one time I did manage to win as the Soviets, I fired my Styx at the Leander and Oiler (no real defensive weapons) while I trashed the Perry with my SAM's and guns. The Leander went down instantly while the Oiler and Perry flooded/burned out long after my ship had been sunk (the Perry after the scenario had officially ended).

I would suggest considering making NATO an AI-only side, since it really isn't much of a challenge to play and has limited tactical options for the player (at least if the player is being honest about operating on a peacetime posture). You might also want to enable Detailed Gunfire since it plays a significant part in the scenario.

Nice small scenario, thanks Gunner98! Blue side is not difficult, but Red side is very challenging.
I noticed this Lua error when I played as Blue side.

Thanks guys

Those bits have been fixed. Both sides are still playable but a note has been added guiding the players. Blue should be a moral boosting easy win for a beginner.

I'm very happy that you decided to tackle making these scenarios Gunner.

I've played this one several times now (Original and updated version) and I agree with labeling it as good for novices when playing as NATO. It is challenging as the Soviets. In my last playthrough. I started right behind the oiler, within minimum Styx missile range, so I let loose with guns and SAMs in ASuW mode. I was pulverized, but the Oiler was so heavily damaged that she sank after me, and the Leander took heavy damage, and the American OHP took some serious damage too.

Hay no problem, thanks for finding them.

I haven't read all the scenarios yet but they all look quite simple (as CMANO scenarios go) and small so I'll try and put up one or two a week as a diversion from everything else I have going on. No guarantees but they are fun.

Great. Perhaps these scenarios, if they are on the simpler side as you say, could serve as a sort of "novice's campaign" that isn't explicitly tutorials.

Thanks for the kind words guys.

A campaign is possible, will want to get a few more built first.

This ones a wrap. Thanks for the help.

Hi

Sorry I´m asking this, I´ve moved from the CMANO CD version to the Steam version recently, and I have no idea how to install Newly released community scenarios like these on my computer.
Accessing the Steam folder doesn´t allow me to reach the scen folder.

Thank you for your help.

No problem, just download the zip file and extract it into your scenario folder - you can create any sort of folder structure you want and put them in there.

When you open the game just navigate back to that folder and your good to go.

Hi again:

I've found the path to the community scenario folder.
I've downloaded it there but when I try to play it, a blue sign pops up telling "This scenario requires the following features: Communications Disruption / Unlock"
When trying to unlock it, another pop up tells "To perform the requested action you need a license for the product below / Chains of War."

I just downloaded the Surface Contacts scenario in the same folder and it opened and played it without a problem.

I must have tagged it for coms disruption. I'll sort that out shortly, there is no reason for it.

In the meantime you can go into the editor. Edit menu, scenario features and turn it off.
