list of campaigns/scenarios?

Post by Darrell999 »

Since this is finally a reasonable price, I'm thinking about buying this, but I can't find a list of what campaigns or scenarios it includes. Can anyone help? Thanks!

Stock:

01 War in the Pacific - Full Campaign
02 War in the Pacific - Hakko Ichiu - Small boost to the Japanese situation
03 Battle of the Coral Sea - very short fight with just the Coral Sea area used. Basically slam the carriers into each other.
04 Guadalcanal - Guadalcanal campaign, just using that area of the map
05 The Thousand Miles War - Aleutians campaign, just on that part of the map
06 Dec 8 Start, without the randomness of Dec 7
07 War in the Pacific - Full Campaign (Quiet China) - AI will not do much in China
08 02 War in the Pacific - Hakko Ichiu - Small boost to the Japanese situation - AI will not do much in China
09 06 Dec 8 Start, without the randomness of Dec 7 - AI will not do much in China
10 War in the Pacific - Ironman. Jacked up Japanese forces
11 Battle of the Marianas
12 11 Battle of the Marianas Hakko Ichiu
13 Operation Buccaneer
14 Downfall - The End

Lots of user made mods are out there, adding many other scenarios also.

Thank you, Mundy!
Does anyone know the scope of the Guadalcanal scenario? I'm especially interested in the South Pacific campaign (Operation Cartwheel, 1943-1944, but 1942-43 would be great, too), and I was hoping something like that would be in there.

I think there is a mod that has a start date of Jan 01/43 with starting forces probably the historic ones in their historic positions. There may have been some additions to the Japanese OOB or logistics to make the game more balanced for a while before the Allied juggernaut takes control.

I see you found the Cartwheel/Galvanac discussion in the Mods forum. Looks like the scenario is still under development but has some useable content already.

Yeah, I hope they can finish it soon. Does anyone know of any other smaller scenarios in the South Pacific?

If you have done Coral Sea and Guadalcanal, you should do Philippine Sea. It's a real challenge to move all the invasion troops to take Guam, Tinian and Saipan in the time available.
