So you are going for Barbarossa in 42, if the americans attack you send your forces past his to take out US? That is bold, you think you will have units and oil for all that? Crazyg No I *think* Max meant he hopes to finish with UK and France in 1940, shift forces to Barbarossa in 1941 and somehow ...

Poland blitzkreig

"So even if Warsaw somehow holds on next turn, we will just capture it on turn 3, no hurry. " How many PP do you sacrifice from not holding the Polish towns on turns 2 or even 3 compared to taking Poland on turn 1 as Max did (albeit with some luck)? Is it as much as 8 per turn? If so, this would off...

2. When France surrenders the Axis player will get a choice. The French will offer an armistice. If you accept the offer then Vichy France is created normally. If you reject the offer then all French units on the map will become UK units flagged as Free French. This sounds as if the axis player wil...

Sounds good. This proposal also makes it sound as if it would be worth the Axis making quite an effort to capture Agadir following a rejection of an armistice.

One way to deal with this in GS v2.00 is to add code that Vichy France will not be created if France is alive after a certain date (01.01.1941 or something like that). That means all French units will turn into Free French units once Paris finally falls. This means the French naval units and all ga...

Yes. The type VIIB had a range of 8,691 nautical miles. It was introduced in 1938. The Type VIIC had a range of 8,190 nautical miles. It was introduced in 1940. The Type IXA had a range of 19,425 nautical miles and all 8 built were commissioned by Nov. 1939. The Type IXB had a range of 22,200 nautic...

Would it be possible to give these ports permanen 0 repair capacity (just as a port in a city which gets cpatured in GS 2.0)? Then no war ship could be repaired at these ports, but they could enter the port (which was possible as far as I know) and ground units could be transported through them. I ...

To RKR: Johndoepublic said 'hoard' not 'horde'.

That indicates that the AI has both an inappropriate am...

Tricky. One problem is that the cost to the player is less than an infantry corps since early in the war one usually has 'spare' garrisons guarding some low-priority city or the Siegfried line (not Rome :wink: ) and the only cost is conversion. I can see an aggressive axis player converting multiple...

I was curious about this steep increase in fuel cost with improved tank technology. I can see King Tigers using a lot more fuel, but I was surprised that the more sophisticated Panther would use more than twice the fuel of a PzII. Particularly it seems that the Panther should not use more fuel than ...

Given that both cities and ports are supply centers, isn't the question whether there was sufficient facilities to embark/disembark troops and to repair ships? I would say so, yes: At 07.14 hours on 29 May, 1940, U-37 fired three warning shots across the bow of the unescorted Telena (Master Harold ...

Aww.... c'mon. It was a compliment, if a little back-handed. The guy was a world champion after all: Petrosian was a conservative, cautious, and highly defensive chess player who was strongly influenced by Nimzowitsch's idea of prophylaxis. He made more effort to prevent his opponent's offensive cap...

This game was like watching Fischer blundering by leaving a rook en prise while playing Petrosian. With the loss of Italy the game became unwinnable for the Axis, and much less interesting compared to seeing how the blitz on Egypt would have turned out.

Do steps directly correspond to numbers of vehicles in say a ARM unit? I mean, does a 8-step ARM unit correspond to a division that has lost 20% of its tanks and support vehicles such that it would burn 20% less oil? Or does it reflect disorganization due to damage, temporary break down of vehicles,...

On other fronts, we formed the gustav line this turn and moved some units into Spain as well. We cannot stay inactive. Also moved some fighters down in Romania since Masina bombed it with 2 bombers based out of Albania, OVER neutral territory. Another nice glitch for this game to exploit. Taking go...
