[DEV] Luftwaffe General

Originally made for the DOS version, this is my mod converted to PGF.

Long story:  see old thread here -> https://panzercentral.com/forum/viewtop ... 98&t=57430

Short story:  Basically a remix of the standard PG campaign, but your smaller core is comprised of aircraft, AA, flak, and paratroop (Fallschrimjager) units (Luftwaffe had their own versions of the latter 3, separate from the Heer and Waffen-SS).  Based upon Radoye's SS mod, so much of the credit goes to him (see Docs/credits.txt for the complete credits).

Demo 2 is now available. 41 West campaign (North Africa through Sealion 43, plus Caucasus, Balkans, and Crete) playable in campaign and standalone modes. El Alamein renamed to Gazala Line, Torch renamed to Tunisia. Some minor changes to previous scenes, full list in Docs/changelog.txt.

DOS version and installation: see old thread
PGF installation:  unzip the archive, then copy/move the Luftwaffe General folder into the PGF main folder (where the EXE is).  Then start the mod like any other PGF mod.

In the Luftwaffe General folder, double-clicking real_flags.bat will install the "real" German flag;  double-clicking safe_flags.bat restores the "sanitized" version (this is the default).  This is for historical accuracy, not glorification;  Waffen-SS also has the "real" flag, that's where the idea came from.  This will also change the game.png thumbnail.

FPGE did not convert Balkans to PGF properly, I had to manually edit some stuff.  Hopefully it plays correctly.

First post updated with new link, both DOS and PGF versions available from there.

This actually is a really unique idea and makes replaying the campaign completely different! Its a really interesting mod. Looking forward to new versions

Thanks for the kind words, you guys, it's nice to know that someone other than Pepa Drobny is playing my mod.  (One of these years we are going to finish PacPG.)  If anybody has any comments about Luftwaffe General, let me know, I've gotten no feedback yet.  Obviously, that means that it's perfect   :)

Originally I was going to release each demo with one new campaign.  However, with COVID-19 shutting down public libraries, I have no way to convert or test scenarios. So, the next demo will have the entire Eastern Front campaign, and maybe even 43 West (which would mean the mod would be finished).  The DOS version is done, but I can't even upload that.  So I will probably upload that first, then take a few weeks to convert and test the PGF version.  When that will happen, who knows...

I liked the mod. Thanks!!! I'm waiting for the release of the final version, otherwise the game is over in the "Caucasus" scenario.

Welcome to the forum Kas Narayda :howdy

Try Radoye's works that are pinned on the forum. They are simply amazing. They are the campaigns and scenarios with the highest number of units per side, with all the good that this implies. You can model your army at will. Make yourself at home and do not hesitate to ask and especially play with the content of the forum. Kind regards: Jorge :howdy
