No disrespect to Max, but this game makes me feel a little better in evaluating my own meagre performance as Axis. Though unlike Max I've yet to win as Axis. If Max had garrisoned Italy, or Massina hadn't scouted around with his GAR and found nobody at home, this could have been a very different gam...

Go Joe

While I'm impressed by how well Crazygunner is doing (I only wish I could do as well playing as the Axis), my money is on Joe all the way.

Not half-baked at all. In fact, it is already included in the design of the game! It's just not a separate category of research focus. The higher levels of industrial tech, in addition to increasing PP's, also increase the supply of oil slightly Of course! A quick look at the manual would have answ...

Would massina_nz's point about pro rating oil consumption for damaged units also be possible to apply for railing units? A half strength unit uses half normal rail points? Would game engine allow this? Is this a good game balance idea? As Axis I know I could use more RR in order to conserve oil. Ano...

JK as my teenagers say. For those of us who haven't been a teenage is quite some time and who don't have any, what does "JK" mean? Since I've got a 4th grader I guess I'm going to have to learn how to speak teenager sooner or later. I might as well start now. :lol: JK = just kidding. Don't worry, b...

Self sufficiency in oil (and indeed other resources) was a major concern for the Nazi leadership from the earliest days of the Third Reich and this explains the massive investment that Goering, as head of the German economic plan, authorised for the oil from coal plants despite it being such an ine...

Thanks Team BJR

Thank you for all your efforts with the various iterations of your GS MOD. Time intensive labors of love each, and I suspect I speak for the majority of players when I say your efforts are very much appreciated. A vocal minority may push and prod you but one of my favorite addages is "Don't let the ...

Plaid, Thanks for making a go of another AAR. I'm unable to play for the foreseeable future so it's fun to check in occasionally and to live vicariously through the AARs. Thanks to all you other AAR writers too. But yours are especially punchy and direct and I like your style. Best of luck and Merry...

I did think about that. The problem is that if the Axis did decide to invade Ireland in Spring 1941, then I would have no chance of stopping them. And I would lose all the ground and RAF units I sent there. I know if an opponent tried that against me, I would conquer Ireland and finish off the Brit...

Alternatively in v2.00 we may have to consider limiting the inactive period to just a couple of turns..... I should hope so. In this instance Germany and the UK are already at war, so it seems odd that the Axis can have total initiative against the UK units in the med, in effect treating those Brit...

Well, I'll find out soon enough. The wording of the manual would lead one to believe that convoys will go to Halifax if London and the other destinations were captured. Since all the other destinations haven't been captured, yet, I assumed they would still attract convoys.

convoys after successful sea lion

Well gents, fortune smiled upon me and the opportunity for Sea Lion presented itself and by June 27, 1940 London was mine. Having never attempted a Sea Lion before, I'm wondering about convoys to the UK. The GS manual says: "The Primary City / Port is Glasgow, followed by Liverpool, Cardiff, Belfast...

Are you counting generals executed at Hitler's order?

Mystery solved. Thanks for testing this and posting the results.

I'd go even farther to suggest that it should be possible on rare instances to kill or ca...

Thank you for reminding me of our exchange. This seems to be a circular conversation, with you and I groping in the dark. According to Ronnie's comment, the leader is wounded 100% of the time when his unit is forced to retreat. But in a PBEM I forced a leader's mech to retreat and I did not see the ...
