An official wish-list for the editors would be nice. There should now be enough custom designers on board to fill it up.

Re: BrucErik CSD Studio

There's two buttons on the Set Scen Variable trigger. "Variable Value:" is the default and what you're used to, with =,+,- for integers If you click the "other variable" button, then you can set you variable equal to another variable. Which is useful in some circumstances, but I'm struggling to mak...

Re: BrucErik CSD Studio

E.g. consider a multiplayer map where I give 2 points per Flag held. If I want to change that to 3, I have to go through and update several triggers instead of just changing one in the setup. By the way, now that I read this, I can see the possibilities, yes. But where is the capability of just set...

Re: BrucErik CSD Studio

I meant the image being cut off. What I am getting at is, will there still be a basic function for setting a variable to = or +/- a value? I don't see that in your screen print. As long as that capability is preserved, then I can't have any objection to what you are proposing. Yes, I am a nervous ne...

Re: Free France Campaign

6. “ Dakar’s bombarded! ” -> maybe when the secondary objective to destroy at least 2 forts (there are 3 of them) is achieved… - it’s historical as well that the forts have been silenced… “Alas, the fighting has seriously damaged the great city of Dakar... The city's fortresses were almost complete...

Re: Free France Campaign

Glad to hear. Continuing: These have been corrected: "Now that Vichy air and naval forces at Dakar have been eliminated . . ." Unit name: "Fort Gorée" (I got the island name correct, though. These accents drive us non-Gallic people willy-nilly!) "Cambérène" it is, thanks. The old map that I used had...

Re: Free France Campaign

Good suggestion about the "Cie D Patrouille Côtière" and supply. I usually do not want supply to be a factor in my scenarios unless it is a part of the missions or tactics. So I took your suggestion to add 10 supply to all road edge hexes which stands to reason as the Vichy would be in control of po...

Re: BrucErik CSD Studio

Did you cut off the screen print? Is there a box underneath like this one that indicates what you want done (add, subtract, etc.)? Screenshot 3.jpg Or is it just a matter of changing the value of "Var2" to equal "Var1"? Either way, speaking for myself only, I don't see much value in it. I can manipu...

Re: Play more strategy

Soon, when I hear back from the last evaluators, I'll get back to the grind and fix it up where all the comments are adjudicated and get it to you, good sir, for CSI. Okay, send me a PM when you are ready. Yes, I prefer to wait until you are almost "ready for prime time." If memory serves, CSI swee...

I am sure that some players will choose to deliberately fail this "Take the mosque without damaging it" objective to see what happens! :roll:

Fallacy: How much have you been playing versus how much have you been working on your computer game? Believe me, I know about this.

The Corsica map is probably on the large side for your taste.
I can create a reduced version if you like (after the Soviet beta has finished).
That would be 12OperationVesuvius. Sure, if you have time; I won't be in that neck of the woods for quite a while. Thanks.

Re: Order of Battle update v8.5.6

I could swear that this version has some subtle tweaks to the fonts to the point where it's almost back to 8.3.0 standards (laptop, 1920 x 1080). If so, many thanks for the efforts. Much appreciated.

Gabon - First impressions (version 1) This is a very carefully an sensitively designed scenario, and if you do wrong tactical choices, you're kaputt. The golden rule is never provoke the armor columns until you have amassed enough strength to face them. There's a high risk in the sea mission, and t...

Indeed. So much so that I have added a link to this thread in the first post of Design & Modding Guides. Now it will enjoy perpetuity, despite the thread itself moving down the board and away. Thanks, asuser!
