I hope the Community Mods will get their tweeks soon. I know I submitted mine for the Naval Mods.

Maybe that will fix your error.

quick question

has the starting technology changed for naval war mod? it used to give all countries (IMHO) a better start but now seems to of gone?

I used a higher level for the beta. I decided to keep as much as I could of the scenarios as close as I can to the original in the mod. You already have so many changes to deal with that changing of the tech. would be too much.

Hi

In the Naval War Mod game, it doesnt seem possible to reinforce the destroyer units. Does anyone know if this is an issue please.

Screening Task Forces are limited to 6 strength points max. They are easy to damage and shatter, but they are very easy and fast to rebuild. Historically, hundreds of destroyers were lost compared to very few capital ships. They are expendable and should be used as obstacles to hinder enemy movement.

The best way to think of the Naval Mod is to imagine zooming in on a fleet with individual Task Forces playing their roles. Most naval games have this model to simulate naval warfare. You have a large scale map to move fleets and when the fleets meet, you move to a tactical map with individual ships.

In this case, it's one step up from individual ships to Task Forces. Radar, airplanes and their carriers of WWII have made this scale adjustment nessicary. You didn't have surface ships shooting at each other to any great extent after the first few encounters. The planes decided the battle way before the surface units got within range.

Hi I just tried the naval mod for the first time. I like it.

I have one question about how the new naval ZOC work. I can't seem to figure out when the ZOC will be in effect consistently. Sometimes my subs can move next to enemy task forces or strike forces other times they can not. Is there a way to better predict this?

Thanks!

Wolf Packs have no Zone of Control. I will have to look around to see what's going on. All zones of control should work the same...unless there were a few versions that snuck through where you had to have two overlapping Zones of Control for it to work. I bet that is what is going on. So you can either play with that in mind, which could be another take on it, or tell me which campaigns you need and I'll see if I can find them and put a link up.

I was hoping to be able to edit the Rostov mod scenario to make it a bit easier. However I`m not sure whether this is permissable or even possible. A similar question was posed in post #14 but never answered.

You have to copy the scenario files to your own personal user Games folder to edit them (you can't save them in the default game folder).

Ok thanks. I did this but it still will not load into the editor. Message is "convoy.txt missing." Also noticed that the data file does not appear in the editor even though I put into the custom folder In fact this same problem ("convoy.txt missing.") occurs with all the Community content.

Hi Edward77,

My guess is that you are possibly not also copying over the subdirectories that the campaigns require.

Typically the Community Pack is installed into the following folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Matrix Games\Strategic Command WWII - World at War\Community Pack\Campaigns

Try copying the entire contents of this folder over to your USER folder usually found here:

C:\Users\<username>\Documents\My Games\Strategic Command WWII - World at War\Campaigns

Then try opening the campaign after that.

Hubert

Thanks Hubert, That solved the problem for all the Community scenarios except Rostov which still has the same convoy.txt missing.

Hi Edward77,

I just tried it on my end and it opened and loaded just fine. Did you perhaps rename the campaign before you opened and edited it? This might cause the issue you are having and if you wish to rename it, simply open it in the editor and then use the SaveAs function and this will properly reset the applicable pointers in the campaign so that this type of error doesn't re-occur.

Hubert

Thanks for the help Hubert. The plot thickens. I now discover that the standard Rostov does not work either, several files missing. I think the Rostov data file is corrupt as it does not appear in the editor. Should I simply reload the Community pack or will I have to start from scratch?

Yeah it is worth a try, perhaps delete Rostov and the Rostov subfolder from your USER folder, then reinstall the patch/community pack and then copy over Rostov and its subfolder once again to your USER folder from the Community Pack folder and see if that then works.
