RE: Commander the Great War: POTZBLITZ MOD V10.3

Post by Robotron »

Almost three years later, "PotzBlitz" mod has reached version number 10.3 and I think there's not much left to add or edit as it's already filled to the brim with new features.

So, if you are/were a fan of Commander the Great War and have not already tried out my mod, I'd suggest you give it a go. It's easy to install too and comes with a 120 page PDF manual.

Find it here at Slitherine forum:

Awesome work! Just coming off SC WW1, eager to see your changes, plus with the added realism of oil and manpower, something the SC series has always strangely left out.

Cheers,

I've just uploaded the brand new update V14

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ZJdSPO ... wyzy9/view


Besides the usual plethora of bugfixes and tweaking here are some of the new changes(forgot to make a proper list so this is from memory but there is plenty more):

- raised submarine cost from 15 to 20 but to compensate also raised German submarine unit build limit from 2 to 3 times the number of researched submarine techs
- all other "modern" units (tanks, armored trains, fighters, bombers, zeppelins) build limit increased by +1
- raised artillery cost from 30 to 40
- new Russian fortress port of Libau in Latvia
- news events: Italian Speedboat Raid, Churchill goes to the Trenches, Italo-Austrian Border Tension
- Q-Ships are now a bit more scary for CP
- reduced attack bonus from researching "additional torpedo tubes" by 1, added that attack +1 bonus to the following "submarine cruisers" tech
- fixed a bug that may have lowered British Supply level twice when CP capture the Suez canal
- same for when CP capture Abadan or India revolts
- modified the "For the fatherland" event which was using up 1D6 German manpower per attack for +50% experience before, making it quite wasteful: reduced that to 0-2 manpower per attack for +20% experience
- "Bloodbath at Langemarck" now works as designed, was prevented from triggering correctly because of some internal value getting messed up
- reduced combat stats for German commander Herman von Francois a bit
- fixed a bug concerning British naval raids on German-occupied Franco-Belgian port cities
- fixed too early trigger for British AI's "British Pal's Battalions" event
- "Stockpile ammunition" event no longer unlocks next artillery tech, instead 2 ammo factories are added
- new generals: Charles Mangin (France), Otto von Below (Germany)
- major update of the PDF manual

So, if you own CTGW and are ready to give the game a new whirl, you are really missing out without this mod.
Enjoy!

Download the complete mod and copy the "Data" folder over the already existing "Data" folder in the game's main directory.

I've completed V15 of my mod, get it here (click on the download button at the top right):

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1TLYzOP ... UI4tS/view

Copy the "Data" folder contained in the zip-archive over the already existing "Data" folder in the game's main directory.

Again, I did not maintain a list of all the stuff edited over the last few months, so here's what I remember right now, there's much, MUCH more though in this version which you will probably discover once you try it out:

- French & German mobilization events
- Turkey and Bulgaria will take a bit longer to join CP
- ceding Trento to Italy or Transylvania to Romania will have worse consequences for Austria
- German zeppelin campaign more fleshed out including airship aces Heinrich Mathy and Peter Strasser
- Hermann Göring, a new German fighter ace
- rebuilt "Race to the Sea" event in 1914
- Tirpitz plan: Battlecruiser for FREE, dreadnought for 15PP
- new fine-tuning of unit stats and national production
- France and Britain are able to rebuild submarines (limit of 1 though)
- rebuilt Greek chain of events
- stronger Senussi forces for CP
- all Arab units for both alliances can move faster through desert/dunes than anyone else
- late war Turkish Yildirim army group commanded by Falkenhayn
- new sights & sounds
- fixed countless issues with stuff not working correctly
- updated PDF manual
- etc. etc. etc.

This will be the final version of my mod. I might release the Russian Civil War as a separate stand-alone scenario in the future.

Cheers!
