Hopefully this update will be compatible with the many user created scenarios that are available for The Campaign Series.

No reason it shouldn't be.

I think I read on the Blitz that the map editor will now how 18 levels of elevation versus the current 12?

Can confirm?

MaxHeight was upped from 12 to 19, and since 0 too is an elevation, there will actually be 20 levels of elevation in the game. With future plans to up it as high as 50! [X(]

One of our Vietnam War scenario designers says he needs 50 elevations in order to model deep gorges properly. (Said to be useful for RS scenarios set in Papua New Guinea too.)

The terrain on and around Hamburger Hill is a good example for more elevations

So my opponent and I are 4 turns in to a 64 turn monster, will this update be compatible with games in progress or will we need to finish this beastie before we install?

The update is not due out for another four weeks or so. By then you will be much further into your current game. Best not to take any chances and just stick with the current v1.04 for your ongoing scenario.

I know that the new updated versions will be compatible with all pre-existing scenarios, but ongoing games? Probably, but I wouldn't bet on it.

I just tried to continue the WF Screaming Eagles scenario with the new version. At least for that particular scenario there were no issues. I agree with Berto, just keep going, and if necessary keep a parallel 1.04 folder with the new version on a separate folder just in case.

That's what I do at the moment, I have two installations, other for the on-going 1.04 PBEMs I am participating with, and another one for testing the new stuff.

Thanks for the responses gentlemen. Figured it would probably be best not to take any chances, just wanted to hear a confirmation.

Appreciate all the work everyone has done and I anxiously await my opportunity to take the new version out for a spin. Thanks to all for devotion to this classic!!

Any chances of fixing the graphical glitches when you need a hex that is +4 higher (or more) than surrounding hexes?

For the impending release, no chance. In future, we will likely require some outside assistance (outside the team, from Slitherine and/or Lordz Studio?) to fix this and other graphics problems.

This might happen with the Modern Wars series, but I may be speaking out of turn. At the moment I am working on a gigantic map (roughly 84 Km by 188 Km) of the area north and south of the Vietnam DMZ. On the western edge of the map are some high mountains that are in excess of 1200 meters. I had to truncate them so that my delta was below 50 meters (delta=46 meters) but that also meant that I could not represent the lower hills located along the coastline. We have 20 elevations at the moment and hopefully we will have more (I don't know how many more) available when Modern Wars Volume 1 is released.

I agree with both Berto and Crossroads. Play your monster scenario with 1.04.
