Thank you Luis :cool but something went wrong. The Efile is actual, but the new campaign is not included. :dunno
Looks like only existing files have been updated but new files have not been added.

:shock :o
Yes, I missed to "add" (stage) new files before committing :bonk ...
I am used to GIT and using SVN is a bit harder for me, because it is not that easy to see all the unversioned files (among 4000 files) to stage them before committing.

It is fixed now and will be updated tonight. Sorry for the mistake :doh

The french 194mm GPF was actually a self-propelled gun with a speed of up to 10 km/h. The other guns had a tracked carriage too but were not self propelled (as far as i know).

I see, thanks. However, it seems that not even the French gun was self-propelled anymore in times of WW2...
Das System wurde schließlich auf ein Traktorgestell montiert. Es stellte sich indes heraus, dass das Gesamtgewicht des Geschützes zu hoch war, wenn es bei Querfeldeinfahrten genutzt wurde. Die Verbesserungen zogen nach sich, dass der Motor entfernt wurde
...while the Russian guns had no engine in the first place. The tracked carriage was just for easier towing in difficult terrain.

Yes I see - 3 scenarios, two from Csaba's Hungarian campaign and one scenario from the Green Devils campaign. :yes Maybe I should provide some suitable scenarios for stand alone again.

I wish you all a lot of fun and good luck! :howdy

Christmas is just around the corner - time for wishes :) What would you like to see implemented in LXF next time?

a) a historic British campaign 1939-45
b) a fictional German campaign with late war equipment and prototypes, maybe 1944-48
c) a Arab-Israeli War campaign 1948-49
d) another campaign (new or conversion), namely...

or/and

I would have liked to have implemented the following in LXF Efile (countries, units, whatever)...

Thanks for your comment!

The poll is corrupted because people will always vote for the german stuff :lol

I'd like to see the Arab-Israeli War campaign 1948-49 or a fictional campaign in South America. Germany and Argentina against the other South American countries and the USA :yes
EDIT: Or a Soviet invasion of Scandinavia.

Sure, think it is always possible to construct a more or less plausible story. I also think that most players do not read the intros anyway :lol

:cool :bow

A great campaign was Royal Navy, but it was lacking a "marines infantry" part. Even better was Imperial Japanese Navy, which included the marines part. The wish would be:
- navy + airforce + marines
- on the allied side
Doesn't need to be 100% historical.
Example, i could imagine Royal Navy+Marines in East Africa and on Malta, then in East Asia (as "military instructors" ) in the early part of the war.
Then the usual suspects of Narvik/Trondheim/Dunkirk/Gibraltar/Kreta (maybe some navy+airforce only scenarios like hunting the Bismark and a Mediterranean convoy).
Then switching to the Pacific (USA becomes available as secondary nation ? ) for some 1942 and '43 scenarios.
For the late war going back to Europe with Sicily, Anzio, Dragoon, D-Day, and finally finishing the campaign in the Pacific.

a fictional campaign in South America. Germany and Argentina against the other South American countries and the USA :yes
:shock Dein Ernst? sollte nciht auch die Storyline einer fiktiven Kampagne wenigstens einer oberflächlichen Plausibilitätsprüfung standhalten und nicht völlig an den Haaren herbeigezogen wirken. :lol
IMO:
- perfect = a highly enjoyable campaign
- perfection = a highly enjoyable campaign with a captivating story
- perfectionist = a highly enjoyable campaign with a captivating and plausible story
;D

A great campaign was Royal Navy, but it was lacking a "marines infantry" part. Even better was Imperial Japanese Navy, which included the marines part. The wish would be:
- navy + airforce + marines
- on the allied side
Doesn't need to be 100% historical.
Example, i could imagine Royal Navy+Marines in East Africa and on Malta, then in East Asia (as "military instructors" ) in the early part of the war.
Then the usual suspects of Narvik/Trondheim/Dunkirk/Gibraltar/Kreta (maybe some navy+airforce only scenarios like hunting the Bismark and a Mediterranean convoy).
Then switching to the Pacific (USA becomes available as secondary nation ? ) for some 1942 and '43 scenarios.
For the late war going back to Europe with Sicily, Anzio, Dragoon, D-Day, and finally finishing the campaign in the Pacific.
Sounds very good :cool

I also advocate variant A and otherwise agree with Chris's suggestions:
- East Africa -> victories against the Italians
- Norway, Dunkirk and Crete as evacuation scenarios
- Gibraltar as a defense scenario (hold by xy VH's)
- something with an HX convoy in the Atlantic (xy ships must reach the port of Liverpool and must not be sunk) https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/HX-Geleitz%C3%BCge
- Singapore as an evacuation scenario
etc

... or a special German campaign that only deals with a division or a special unit, similar to e.g. the 22nd Infantry Division or the Green Devils. Only differently and if possible with tanks ;) .
But should be a unit that was complet active throughout 1939-45.

Hi friends, thanks for your great ideas. :clap Ultimately, I chose the historic British campaign – a British (land) campaign is simply missing in the LXF ensemble and it has also received some encouragement from you. I will post the progress in the Designers ’Corner Forum soon.
