Agreed.

Mods, there is a dearth of wargames of the Campaigns' scale set in the pacific. Very few. Save the Cold War, which I also voted for, there are plenty of other games that cover the European theater.

It's not on the poll, but it struck me that a really cool area to look at might be obscure, smaller or irregular conflicts in the modern era. The system seems well-suited to things as disparate as the anti-colonial struggles in post-WWII Africa and Asia, up through the 1980s, to clashes in Kashmir, to the Iran-Iraq war, or the Falklands even. The scale and flexibility of the game system seems pretty good for that sort of thing.

Yes, most definitely. Those are all good ideas and I'm slowly collecting reference material to indulge in those types of scenarios.

So much to do... I need clones.

- Vietnam DLC or Korean War
- Additional CS:ME scenarios modeled after "a week in..." Vietnam model

Then again I realise this would be a minority interest so I won't get my hopes up !
Spanish Civil War will be a DLC for West Front
In that case West Front it is.

For all those saying WW2 has been done to death, 99% of WW2 titles are set after '41. Excluding the African theatre pre '41 WW2 games are very rare. Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris comes to mind and a handful of WDS/JTS games.

If it is to be Cold War hopefully it will be early cold war like Operation Unthinkable rather than set in the 80s as again most Cold War games are set after 1980.

The initial Cold War release will focus on Central Europe. My plan is to have a set of scenarios for each decade (late 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's) that will focus on some key battlefields (North German Plains and Fulda Gap) and show the advancements in weaponry and tactics will play a role on those battlefields as the decades proceed.

Jason does that mean a decision has been made? I was really hoping for the Pacific theater. While I have your attention, what are the statuses and rough (?) ETAs for the later Vietnam conflict and Korean War content? I will say how happy I am that you are working on the Korean conflict. Very interesting and lots of potential scenarios.

Plenty of content out there. I'll play you some Battle Sector if you want to set up a challenge.

Sanctus Reach is great too, although Battle Secor makes it look dated now.

I would love to see an update to either WF or EF to bring it up to the new standards. Could not care less about the Pacific... most of that terrain is too close for armor and this is a pretty good armor game. This is one reason that I have little interest in VN.

Like others I've seen posting in her, the one I'd like to see most is Cold War up to modern
