Re: New Scenario: Low Vosges to Strasbourg

Mascarenhas, Thanks for playing the scenario and commenting. It's good to (finally) get some feedback. I am doing another playthrough now and sometimes I hit the Phase I objectives at 17 and sometimes at 20 -- Etival is just a little too far. I wonder if I should get rid of the infantry protecting i...

These are more in the medium category mostly, so they stay at 5, like many others.
Ok, and thanks for keeping us advised!

Re: CP adjustments - SPAT edition

I would not like the US versions to go higher than 5 now. They're supposed to be less costly than tanks and the US M10 was everywhere.

Re: New Scenario: Low Vosges to Strasbourg

Cool! Thanks again for the suggestion and explanation. Given this revelation, I guess the only (or most obvious) time you'd want to list the reciprocal objective is when you want it to be "reversable" such as when you'd expect a v-hex be taken and retaken. What a time-saver! Not only in set-up but a...

GabeKnight said: I don't think it'll work like this with the trigger event being "scen start" AND a "check turn" condition (?). I'd either use "scen start" event without any condition or a "turn start" event with "check turn". But maybe I'm just overthinking this. It worked/works, hombre. All the se...

Re: New Scenario: Low Vosges to Strasbourg

Bru: You suggested the following: I have been recommending to Erik at times the use of the "Check Objective State" condition in situations like this [where there are several objectives]. Instead of those "Phase I Objectives Not Held Turn 20" triggers, just this one that checks to see if the objectiv...

Re: New Scenario: Low Vosges to Strasbourg

Thanks very much Bru.

I'll get back to you on this.

The missed actuation for the XX Pz is such a big deal I pulled down the link.

I needed some help, obviously, so thanks for putting the time and effort in it.

Re: New Scenario: Low Vosges to Strasbourg

It's an oversight. I'm too much of a fan of the Dutch to bring up such unpleasantries. I need the red/white/blue Dutch flag to denote corps sister units (apart from the Free French). But I don't know how I assigned one to the Germans. Again, an error. I'll switch out the other Dutch infantry to US. ...

Good luck, Comrades! Looking forward to seeing the output. This will be good! Ah, Bru -- are you still going to be available to check other scenario offerers' work? I think it's essential as a quality control mechanism. Plus educational for the budding scenario developers. Also, Erik, I hope that yo...

Check Bridge Status Trigger -- Bridge Repair, just for the record

Just so this is on record somewhere. If one's engineers repair a blown-up bridge and one uses the Trigger "Check Bridge Status" for "Operational", it will work if it is an existing bridge that has been destroyed. It will also work if there was not bridge there previously. So the trigger counts a rep...
