FitE2 suggestion for possible "free for all" game
Hello here is suggestion for all to consider re: FitE2
If you are willing, is possible for us to all have a go
at the monster, and that way folks can experience the monster
painlessly! Idea follows,
Cheltham has suggested passing move in progress (it is currently Soviet move 29 just started)
to whomever would like to continue the Soviet move, the file and a general briefing will be
provided, then you open .sav file you get,
make move or part of move, and return.
then next Stalin or Hitler man gets a go at it,
or part of it they want to do, and same again around.
This way everyone who wants to have a go at it can have fun with it
and we all together will finish the monster quicker than is possible
with the usual just two victims of the monster!
I think this would be a very fun and interesting exp. and it
also gives opportunity for all to get to have fun and exp.
the FitE2 thing painlessly!
Don't think about any "problems" you think would mess up idea,
we are all adults here and can conduct ourselves properly
to make it a fun thing to do. I am happy to coordinate the
effort, and want to give this idea a try. We solve issues as we go along,
a collegiate and fun effort.
SO, if willing, we will start at point in game we have reached
(at Sov. 28 or so I think, Kiev has been taken, Moscow is being
threatened, etc. etc.
If you are interested, just send me an email
through the slitherine thing (I think you can click on my name over there) or
to firstname.lastname@example.org and we get the show on the road!
We are using FitE2 version 1.8
it is in Larry's list in mods section of forum area here
if you don't already have it installed.
if you want you can
take the game and then just make part of the move or do a front (for Soviets)
or a Army Group or part of Army Group or country and return your
save file annd we will continue along to next player continue on the move etc. and we will work out system of resolve combats, then around we go again!
Any general question can post here or can email me, either the slitherine way or feel free to send direct
So if interest send me an email with any questions, or just say, Lemme have it! All are welcome!
We've developed a pretty cool system of "game bookkeeping" that is going to easily keep everything straight and make it easy for players to quickly get into the "meat" of FitE2. I hope you will consider giving it a go and help us test this system if you don't like how it goes, then no problem and we continue and improve system as we go!
PS right now, it is still Soviet turn 29 and the complete AAR is over there in AAR under the community effort thread.
We are making guides on how we quickly and easily do things like navigating map / finding particulare units etc. w/ keyboard and other shortcuts that slices this scene down to manageable size. I remember one chap (I think in cpt flam's thread) asked, "How do you PLAY such a massive scene?" well we are going to show you how we do it. Will publish also the little guides we are doing, ideas in these are also applicable to all scenes.
Thank you and have a great gaming day!
