Reading the fantastic Daniel McBride AAR/Review of DC Barbarossa, i noted that only the map is valued "so-so" and i recall that during playtesting of DC Barbarossa i made for personal use a map modded with over 70 new historical locations, all other game feature remain the same.
After nearly 4 years i try again the game with my modded map, and with some little fix i think it must be shared!

Daniel McBride (Staufenberg44) verdict :

All in all a first-rate Barbarossa game, very unique, cleverly done and a gas to play out. In no particular order:

--Supply system excellent

--Combat dynamics good, albeit arcane

--East Front weather modelling excellent, best I have seen

--Political dynamics great, a real challenge

--Map so-so

--Unit presentation average

--Unit game values very good

--AI excellent, one of the best I have seen

--Ability to model the actual history of Barbarossa excellent

--Game manual outstanding. Cameron Harris has put together a book on this (no exaggeration, it's 314 pages) and it's a fine accompaniment to the game.

I give it a solid A, and if the map and unit visuals could have been tweaked probably an A+. Thanks to the modders in the forum for improving the map and units as much as they could.

This is the modded scenario.
The only change is the new map with more than 80 new locations and some minor fixes.
The other scenario features are as the original scenario.
Clearly the game behaviour change as every new locations help the defender.

Installation is very simple you must only put the file "Barbarossa_Nikdav03.dc3"
on the folder "BarbScenarios" and than load the scenario.

Hope you like it !
Every feedback is welcomed!
