Good New Year Day All,

How can I best craft the subject decision?

I was thinking of two primary prerequisites and a major country belligerency change to make this work.

If the prerequisites for such a decision were the approval of the UK-French expedition to Finland and
an increase in number and duration of UK units in France; might this be enough to allow a Franco-British
Union Decision Event to be presented?

To re-balance the game, what if Germany were presented with cheep USSR diplomacy options to keep
the USSR out of the war for a much longer time?

I'd love to read your thought.

-Robert

Happy New Year Robert!

A question comes to mind as to what the Franco-British union (one of Churchill's ideas if I remember rightly?) would represent in actual game terms, i.e. would France become part of the UK, or vice versa, or would it just (say) provide an NM and/or MPP bonus to France that gives it greater ability to fight on?

Happy New Year Bill!
I have two thoughts on how to do this in the actual game, both are unproven.
First, the biggest unknown I have is how annex scripts function with regards to major countries. I can test that. I will test the French being annexed by the UK.
Second, move the French capital to North Africa, send MPPs from the USA , activate all French colonies and make use of Free Unit scripts for all French units.
Not sure about NM, but there is a late 1940 NM script that does increase NM that I could use.

It sounds interesting, and you're right that something might need to be done to keep the USSR neutral for a bit longer in recompense?

Well, Annexation does not work...

; #COUNTRY_ID must be an inactive Minor otherwise event will not occur.
;
; #RECIPIENT_ID must be a Major country.

Try a SURRENDER_1 script as that is what we use when Poland falls.

Very interesting variant indeed! Nice work too.

Churchill sure wanted it...but the French attitude(s) is the big question. I wonder how many of the various groups within France's government, military, and civil/colonial bureaucracies would be willing to go along with this action?

Hi Robert

How much would this cost, whether in terms of MPPs or other penalties?

I wonder if French collaboration might have been more likely if the Axis held France?
