@Soviets turn 257 (Dec. 5, 1943)
Soviets approach the last natural barrier, the Oder River,
before the Battle of Berlin (which is a foregone conclusion)
The last month or so (real time) I have only moved this area,
ignoring the rest of the map (except to rail up artillery and anti-tank)
and to capture Vienna. Trying to get this one over ....
The Germans / Elmers simply can't put up any resistance.
Berlin has the points to push it over an overwhelming Soviet victory
(is still only marginal, need to get the 650 or so points at the Oder
to push "significant" ... once I get the "overwhelming" I will "end scenario"
for the splash screen.
A pretty fun scene, took me four? or five? months to get this far,
but it has become something of a chore now.
A better player than me would have taken Berlin by now, I think,
but I pretty much just had fun with it, not really "serious" play.
I think it might be improved with some tweaks to Soviet OOB and reinforce / replace better placed,
along with beefing up Elmer's Germans more. But still fun to mess around with it.
Okay, well, let's see if I can get to Berlin in the next ...
I think I should be able to capture "Elmer Schicklegruber" in less than 30 more moves.
