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.

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

: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.)

Next to other new icons, i started to update the motorcycle units in my efile and created some more motorcycle icons. The motorcycle recon with 2 motorcycles will be all new. So i can diversify the 3 different units in a more logical and easy to recognize way:


Motorcycle Transport ---------------------- Motorcycle Recon --------------------------- Motorcycle Infantry

Image Image Image


:huh Does anyone use one or more of my icons already? Does anyone use the iconpack download? Would be interesting to know :nods

To be clear, the left and right icons already exist. I just created the central one out of the other two. Nothing is really new. It basically never is. Almost every icon is a more or less modified version of an existing one. It's just the concept of 3 different motorcycle icons that is new.
Recently i made a DDR Watchtower just for fun. That icon is new out of the blue! :lol

If you put parachutes to all airborn units (eg AT or Flak) would be hard?

Subject Atomic Weltkrieg:
:howdy
I compared the AAR's of me and Dimitris and noticed that in several scenarios the VH and Map prestige differ. Dimitris' prestige is higher than mine in scenarios 2, 4, 5 and 9.
In scenario 6, Dimitris has 0 prestige and I have much more. But in scenario 6 (Narvik 2) there are no VH's or flags to conquer, only to defend. Therefore I think that the 0 prestige in Dimitris run is correct.

How can there be such differences?

The turn prestige is the same in both AAR's so far.

Edit:
One more question: I am planning to expand the numbers of the navy - how many deployment hexes at sea can I expect on average for the navy only (not including ground troops that are to go ashore)?

I have no idea :huh

For example in scenario number 5, Narvik I, i have shown 220 VH prestige and you and Dimitris have 260. In Suite is shown 240 + 20 for a airfield VH, so 260 should be correct. Then why it shows only 220 for me?
But at the same time you have all map prestige 680 and Dimitris has 740 and i have only 460.
In the next scenario, Narvik II, we have 0 and you have 380 VH and 600 all map prestige which is the exact number of prestige the AI can capture :huh

But after 9 scenarios yours and Dimitris army value and prestige is almost equal (97pp difference), so there can not be a large difference, despite the numbers shown in the AARs. I am 900pp behind because i got less TVs. So these numbers seem to be okay.

In Dunkirk you have 5 deployment hex at sea. Later you have in most scenarios unlimited deployment at sea and/or a port SH.
But you always can build a port and deploy more ships. Even at Dunkirk. Sometimes you must build a port if you want to deploy your ships, like at Thermopylae.
There are scenarios Like Odessa or Taganrog were you have 10 deployment hex at sea. Later in the campaign there are always enough deloyment hex or SHs
So yeah, i'd say, after Dunkirk you can expend your navy.

Same with paratroopers. In most scenarios you can deploy all paratroopers at sea or use 99 atp. But there will be scenarios like Stalingrad were you can maybe only use 1 or 2 atp. Since Stalingrad should be a brutal ground battle without fancy paratroopers :lol
There should be some variation between scenarios to make the campaign more interesting.

Thanks for the answer. I have to think especially about your hint to build own ports and also have the right units for that. All right.
Incidentally, so far in the campaign I have not built an airfield and improvised with those available on the map. Let's see how long I can keep this up.

The Lützow is a remnant of the Basekorp efile where it is available in 1933 already.
But the real Lützow was launched in 1939, but never finished and sold to the USSR in 1940.
I didn't know what to do with this ship and set it on no buy :dunno

EDIT: The other thing is, why should Lützow have better numbers than Hipper? They were identical, no?

I had looked up Capital ships in the e-file via suite and discovered 1+ for the Lützow in the artillery range that interested me. However, I had overlooked the "No Buy".
My intuition was to buy the "Deutschland" early and convert her to the Lützow later. Both ships have the same price. Such updates interest me, if you can get better material for the same price - then I also like to invest in expensive units early (the "Deutschland" is more expensive than the "Hipper", which you like to play with).

Otherwise you are right . According to the German wiki the main armament of the ships is the same. There are differences in engine power, the number of mines and torpedoes carried, and the aircraft on board. But maybe this information has just been forgotten.

The power is greater but the speed is 1km/h slower at wikipedia. Probably becuase the ship is listed 5 meters longer. And torpedos can not be modelled very good in the game. Especially on a cruiser.
It also makes no sense that the range is greater than for Hipper when the guns are the same.
I guess Lützow is one of the units that a designer can deploy in a scenario or gift to the player to have some cool core unit that is otherwise not available.

Hello everyone :howdy

Efile has been updated. New version: 25th November 2022.

The Weltkrieg campaign has been updated and some new units and icons have been added to the efile. There are already around 477 icons in the equipicons now.
Most importantly, for the people playing Weltkrieg, there are 2 early german nightfighters (all-weather) now, the halftrack healer upgrade and Dimitris' mountain AT. Link to Dropbox download in first post. Have fun!

And don't be afraid, join the Discord! Link also in first post.
