Thanks :howdy

At the moment i am rethinking my future plans. Maybe i should just skip the german campaign and add the new scenarios/maps to the Weltkrieg campaign. 80 scenarios is better than 73 scenarios :lol

I definitely plan to add these 4 scenarios to the Weltkrieg campaign:

- 1940 Battle of Britain/Adlertag/Operation Adlerangriff. Air battle only.
- 1941 Corinth/Athens. There will also be a unit choice screen. The player can choose between a 12 sp para-scout, para-MG or paratroopers.
- 1942 Rostov II. Scenario will be between Sevastopol and Stalingrad I.
- 1942 Stalingrad II(I). Since i am working on a new Stalingrad map for Major Heinz (map is finished, i just have to create the mapx file) i decided to use this map as well.

Then i could also add the new Mykolaiv/Kherson map. And it would be nice to have another jungle map (like Tarakan) near the end of the campaign. We'll see. Once the Corinth/Athens map is finished i will start updating the Weltkrieg campaign and also start playing a new run of the campaign.

Ok, so i decided to add the 4 maps/scenarios mentioned in the previous thread to the Weltkrieg campaign and keep the other Russia and Ukraine maps for the other german campaign, Ostfront. So that campaign also has some exclusive maps.

Still, i want to add one more scenario near the end of the Weltkrieg campaign. Should be some interesting and rather "exotic" map. Some options are:

- San Diego, USA
- Natal, Brazil
- Darwin, Australia,
- Balikpapan, Borneo, Indonesia
- Lingayen Gulf, Philippines
- Leyte, Philippines
- Bataan and Manila, Philippines
- enlarged SSI PEG map 155, Taipei, Taiwan
- Cape Town, South Africa

[EDIT: i already dismissed the Panama Canal because such a map would take much too long]
[EDIT2: the Charleston, USA, map would also be interesting and suitable for enlargment. Would be very easy to enlarge the already existing map :yes ]

Everyone please feel free to submit your ideas and suggestions :howdy

So be it :cool
Then we have the following scenarios that will be added to the campaign > see list below. There will also be a Charleston scenario because the map will be easy to create and i will add Mykolaiv/Kherson because 79 scenarios would be a odd number and 80 is much better :cool
I am pretty sure the USA reactivated all the old Civil War forts around Charleston and when the player arrives on the scene the US artillery is bombing Fort Sumter, which changed sides :lol
I will also remove the leader from the submarine the player gets in the first bonus scenario. I want the player to decide which leaders he/she wants and so i don't want have one leader sport occupied already. The players should choose their favorite leaders because playing 80 scenarios with bad and unwanted leaders is no fun. I will also make it more clear in the intro text that the player is encouraged to play with a set of favorite leaders.

- 1940 Battle of Britain/Adlertag/Operation Adlerangriff. Air battle only.
- 1941 Corinth/Athens. There will also be a unit choice screen. The player can choose between a 12 sp para-scout, para-MG or paratroopers.
- 1941 Mykolaiv and Kherson
- 1942 Rostov II. Scenario will be between Sevastopol and Stalingrad I.
- 1942 Stalingrad II(I). Since i am working on a new Stalingrad map for Major Heinz (map is finished, i just have to create the mapx file) i decided to use this map as well.
- 1946 Charleston
- 1947 Cape Town / Cape of Good Hope

@ Dimitris :howdy

I started working on the Athens/Corinth map. I want to work on it a little every day. It will be a great scenario. The player has to build a port and deploy the fleet either northwest or southeast of the Corinth Canal. (Don't know if we should allow small ships to pass the Canal?). I also found out that there was a WWII airfield in the southwest near Argos that was used by the allies as well as the Germans.
Chalcis is already done:

Canal has 24m width and depth 8m. For sure Bismarck could not cross canal but medium ships they could.
Pireaus is (and was) one of the biggest ports in mediterraen. Corinth also has (and had) a port but in 1940's was not big.
Tell me more about what you think about the port.

In the scenario i think the player will fly with the paratrooper engineers somehwere to the south and build a port to deploy the cruisers/battleships. I just checked my savegame and i had one Hipper and one Scharnhorst. Of course there need to be some greek ships at Salamis.
Only destroyers can cross the Corinth Canal.

I wanted to make:

1 port at Corinth
1 airfield and 1 port at Elefsina
2 ports on Salamis Island, west and east
1 port on Agina Island
2-3 ports at Pireaus (depends on the coastline/hex)
1 airfield at Megara
2 airfields north and south of Athens
1 airfield just northwest of Argos
And of course the 2 airfields that come from the other map. One shiftet into a more correct location.

October will be fine. I think i will release the next update of the campaign with the first 17 scenarios and the new scenarios, Corinth/Athens and Operation Adlerangriff, some day in late October. So it makes sense to start playing the whole campaign from the beginning.

I think i will name the scenario "Battle of Greece". What do you think? I can add a named greek submarine leader to the scenario :cool

Here you can see today's progress. Due to the scale the Corinth Canal is only 3 hex long. I will add the bridges in the central hex. Looks best i guess.

I can't wait (lol, i said that again) to play the best campaign ever created from the beginning. :clap

PS I also like to play Major Heinz campaign, i see some progress but i believe it is better to wait until Major Heinz finish it.

(Something personal: It was hard for me to stay long time away from the game. As i am not 50 years old yet (April is not far away) i realise that OG is better than working :) \0

PS 2. Congratulations to German basketball team. It was better and i wish good luck.

Only very few people on this planet have the stamina to play 80 scenarios. It will be a more exclusive achievement than climbing Mount Everest :lol :lol

Dimitris :howdy Is there any particular village you want to have on the map? The naval base on the eastern side of Salamis had to be shifted a little bit to the north because there is not enough space. For the scenario i am thinking of a additional victory hex on Aegina Island for more paratrooper and naval action :yes Athens and the Islands are finished and it looks like this:

For sure Loutraki and Perahora in the mainland.
At Peloponese tell me when you are ready, there are a lot of villages, but only a few of them will be important.
If you have a big picture of the map that you use to take info, i can tell you some villages.

I will send you an email with the map picture and mapx file. Although it is under construction you can load it like a regular mapx in Suite. The mapx is basically empty but i already added all names of all villages, cities and airfields that are on the map. Perahora is missing, but i will add it next time i work on the map :cool

[EDIT: Sorry, i misunderstood :bonk I just sent another mail :howdy ]

:howdy I continue my work on the map and btw this is how it looks if your merge the Thermopylae map with the new one:
(Maybe one day in the future :ihope someone expands these maps to the east so you can sail your ships around Attica.)
