So far i am using only one of the XXL maps. I fear to mix them with the "standart" maps because people may don't want to play that long or even can't display such large maps.
True. I had Csaba abandon my GWC playtest when he reached Rostov scenario... :dunno

Re: MAPS: Randowe's XXL Maps and Map Room

In my latest version of German World Campaign, I used your Alexandria map to merge 2 scenarios, Alexandria and El Alamein. Is going to be fun to playtest it to ensure balance is correct.

Playtest: German World Campaign with RedPac e-file

Decided on testing my German World Campaign (now is mine, as little remains of the old Andreas Seidel version) with my latest RedPac e-file. I previously had 2 testers, Duke and Csaba, but both kind of abandoned it and the threads from JP cannot be recovered. It should have no issues that needs fixi...

Now I am down to 3 scenarios left to do. The campaign at this point has 65 scenarios on the main scenarios tree covering Whermacht. In the future the campaign will cover Kriegsmarine and naval invasions and Afrika Korps. 2 paths which only exists on paper. Except for Scapa Flow scenario for Kriegsma...

Re: Back Sort Of...

Obviously, it was not an original name.

The movie The Mouse that Roared is a classic.

But Maus fits better in the overall Panzer General theme.

Re: DEV: More Efile Specials

One note on radar. It would be best if radar would spot (undefined like in PeG), but not all units. Just planes and ships (without subs).
Maybe an ability that can be used for spottable by radar or not.

Re: AI purchasing units ...

You said that AI checks if a VH is in danger. Does the AI determine this from the distance of the spotted player units from VH or from actual un-spotted distance? In other words does it cheat when comes to checking the place of player units?

Re: Improving the AI (3.0)

What I would really want to see from AI is something that I wanted since I was playing PG2 SSI. Better thinking in buying new units. AI always buys the cheapest unit in the block be it, flaks or garison troops and spawn as many as possible. 1.0 SSI PG2 was even worse as it had a T34/41 with 0 pp. Fo...

Re: DOC: Submarines

Slightly off-topic, but this is the way subs operate in Pacific General (and IMO it is a better system, but no surprise there, considering the name of the game). 1. Subs can be ordered to submerge. They move slower, 1/2 of total movement while submerged. If a sub moves half of its total movement it ...

Do we have a repository of old campaigns? I mean older PG2 campaigns. Those were once hosted on Steve Brown's site, but that site is dead for quite some time.
