Looks very good so far!

i have two suggestions for the flowchart:

1. A loss in sweden takes you to Narvik or Belgium
2. A loss in UK40 takes you to Gibraltar

So when you achieve a special mission (norway, sweden, uk40), you have no risk of completly fail the campaign only by playing (and loosing) your achived missions...
In reality also the war would not be over after this kind of scenarios...

I would also suggest that a loss on Crete does not end the campaign.

that's right but a loss won't lead to the barbarossa scenario.

To update or not to update an axis minor unit

Post by nikivdd » Fri Mar 23, 2012 7:01 pm

A new feature for v1.0 is the ability to update your axis minor core units to another one of its own nation and no longer by german units.
Unfortunately the vanilla efile doesn't offer many choices, but the SS-GTPG efile surely will.

Really interesting the russian maps.
Maybe a loss in Kiev would lead to Besserabia.
And you could reward a decisive victory in Barbarossa.

A loss in Kiev can go to Odessa or to Winteroffensive Kerch, let me know which one.
Which kind of reward for the Barbarossa DV you have in mind?

A loss in Kiev should not lead to the same map as an DV/MV. In that case i would take the winteroffensive (better Besserabia).

In the vanilla you get after a decisive victory in Barbarossa the chance to rush to moscow. So I thought you can create something similar to this.

I'll try for Besserabia only if i manage to shift scenario dates.

The arrow from Barbarossa to Moscow should be red, not black. I just forgot to change the color :oops:
I hope that one Moscow41 map suffices.

Updated flowchart.

@ HQ4L: I recall that the rush to Moscow was a harder scenario. I think for now i am going to leave Moscow41 as it is. I also send you a pm a few days ago.

I am playing the 1.0 campaign. First two scenarios didn't change, so I don't have a lot to say. I came to the Westerplatte scenario, and it is so unhistorical that I am a bit surprised.

Westerplatte is more or less 500x200 m and only 200 poles were defending it. On the map, we can find artillery, tank, artillery fortress, armored trains, even an airfield, air units, cruisers, destroyers and submarines...

I would have thought that it would be a small map with a reduced core (10-15 units), against highly entrenched infantry and perhaps artillery.
The map is so much packed with enemy high quality troops, that it does no more corresponds to this heroic, desperate defense from the poles against a huge power (German infantry, aviation and navy).

So the map is really unhistorical, but can still be a difficult one to play.

Finished this Westerplatte map. Could have DV on turn 13. Waited the last turn for money.
It was a tough one. Interesting to play, even if not really historical...
