Facing the threat of Axis success in North Africa, on October 31st, 1942, Germany and Italy signed the 1942 Treaty of Versailles with the Western Allies.

The treaty included the following provisions:

Axis withdrawal from Western Europe and Norway, to be replaced with puppet governments.
No limitation on Lend-Lease to the Soviet Union
Freedom of the Seas- No more embargoes and no more naval combat between the Axis powers
Western Allies can continue to provide lend-lease to the Soviets


Changes to the scenario include:
Axis allies have a slightly better starting position in the Stalingrad area
Western Europe, Norway, and North Africa theater boxes are closed. All units sent to Map or Axis reserves.
Strength requirement for Italian theater set to zero
Increased Lend-Lease production for the Soviets

As it is right now, players will have a very hard time maintaining the starting positions- as I'm sure many of you are finding out, this game is fundamentally different from WITE in a very good way.


I am looking for feedback on balance, ideas for enhancement, etc.
Should there be better German tech?
More production?
Oil or resource imports?
Increased Soviet theater box requirements in the far east?


I am planning on making short videos showing how to use the editor using this scenario as the basis for making those videos. Please let me know what kind of changes you would like me to make. Once I feel comfortable with the editor, I am going to proceed to build a (regular history) May 1942 start date Campaign.

I would like to know the answer to these questions also.

The modded scenario looks very interesting. I have copied some of the text in the first post to create a scenario description.

Copy this into a text file and retain the formatting.

Just had a quick look at the scenario in the editor and I think he has done this through the game event editor.

Hi everyone,

I am in the process of moving and don't have access to my computers.

I made the change using the events as described above. Once I am moved into my new home I will make a video showing how I did that.

You have really inspired me with this.

I am going to do some experimenting tomorrow.

Thanks.

Great! Let me know if you are interested in collaborating on this. I'd welcome any contribution that you'd be interested in making.

You can adjust the TBs by going to the map and using the ctrl-b TB screen. Click on the word "Active" to turn a TB off. Other numbers like requirements can be changed here as well. Happy modding.

Thanks for the input.

I didn't know that and it's good to know.

I've been messing around with this and it is immensely useful. Thanks again.

I haven't gotten into TB editing yet to any great degree due to RL but I plan to soon.

1.03 Update coming soon.

Changes include:

Northern theater removed

Extended initiative change date

Italy takes over Garrison duties

Renewed German focus on infantry (security and luftwaffe division OOB changed to infantry)

Flak units released from cities for use on the Eastern front.

Even with these changes, this results in a significant challenge to the Axis.
