Hi Ronald, I destroyed the unit in Soviet Dawn the first scenario, I only had 1 unit left.
Actually it was terminator who wanted to know. I guessed it was Minsk as it seemed you were then off to work.
It says in the changelog for Eastern Front that Blue Division will be Spanish in v.1.09. It was a planned change and now has been made.
If needed, I can make a changelog for Art of War saying ''Locations of battles are shown on the Western European map in v.1.09.''
The way i handle the changelog is always a reference to a last published version. SO if there is a new scenario in 1.09 like the Rostov 1941, it will not get a change list on its own until it has important changes in 1.10 (e.g. fixes of OoB or balancing).
So as Art of War is new in 1.09 is just listed as new. Some goes for fixes of the Beta, except e.g. they are generally new bugs then its relevant for the list.
I have found the "Grossdeutschland" in the first scenario Minsk 1941.
Why it is not an Elite Infantry ?
"Elite" is a euphemism for the Waffen-SS as it is unclear if you can get trouble using it. I know for sure that would i use the historical symbols, i could get punishment here in Germany. So using that term is playing it save. I would prefer historical stuff for accuracy's sake, but its not important enough to go to jail :-)
In this sense, the Großdeutschland was not an "Elite" e.g. Waffenn-SS unit like Das Reich oder Wiking. It was elite though - it recruited the best from the regular army and similar to the SS units had a special treatment according to new weapons. It was a prestige unit of the Heer i guess.
Ronald, I agree. In Minsk 41,in other news my fighters can't even take on unescorted bombers without a 2 point loss so I wont attack when the 109 isn't around. I must be doing ok because Stalin hasn't sent me on a permanent vacation.
Then god speed for the other missions. Stalin is an unforgiving master.
I added a little list of general bugs and their current state, the Soviet Dawn ones will be handled in the other thread.
As we are talking about the Großdeutschland unit, here is a little fun fact: the unit was made up of men from all over the Reich including Austria thus its name. Großdeutschland refers to a solution that was on the table during the 19th century which meant a "big Germany" that would involve Prussia and Austria (then the Habsburg Empire) as well as all the smaller German states.
The founding of the second Reich in 1871 was the small German solution excluding Austria.
Men of this unit are depicted on the box of Germany at War as a reference the title showing "all" German states at war as Austria was annexed in 1938.
