Akkula: I went through your big scenario. It was very enjoyable - thank you for your great work. I have pm'ed you a list of the problems i encountered, i hope this will be useful. They generally fall into the following categoriess a) finnish units appearing regularly way behind the front lines b) problems with convoys not appearing to unload iether in murmansk or archengals. c) finnish and rumanian units reappearing every turn after being disbanded. d) lots of heavy units appearing regularly in the middle of crowded red army areas towards the end despite germany being overrun and pacified for a long time.

Interestingly i found that by sacrificing many weaker units for maximum enemy damage at the beginning it was possible to slow down the german advance to give plenty of prestige and time to bring up the heavier units. Of course it was important to be restrained at the beginning with the air force so as not to be overwhelmed, this gives air dominanace quite quickly as soon as there are units capable of taking them on directly.

Now for the campaign!

In the leningrad scenario:
Although i had lost other small outlying towns no city tiles marked leningrad were lost at any time yet i still got a 'defeat'. According to the briefing i should have got a marginal victory. Do i need to keep towns other than leningrad?.

Sure. You can keep playing the campaign without problems.
But if you want to play The Great Patriotic War scenario you should start a new game to see the new updates.

Hope it helps.

I think I've spotted a bug, a minor nevertheless. 75mm Vickers seems to be missing its sound files, since I don't hear anything when it fires.

That would be interesting indeed 8) .
But so far I will stick with this one fantasy scenario: Operation Unthinkable. What would happen if the Allies would materialize their plan to attack the URSS on July 1st.
I have some more historical ideas to implement first, but who knows!. Maybe in some future I could try that, a mini campaign of a post war conflict between the superpowers.

Regards.

Hello Akkula,
Thank you for your new update, unfortunately in version 1.6 a few briefings are still missing. Could you add them probably in version 1.7 :?:
The following mission briefings are still missing after all: Misson 08 - MV; Mission 09 - LOSS; Mission 14 - LOSS; Mission 29 - LOSS; Mission 34 - LOSS; Mission 35 - DV, MV & LOSS; Mission 36 - LOSS; Mission 38 - LOSS. :|
Not only in the missions, but also in the mission briefings you have given you a lot of effort. Keep it up! :D

It would be fun to create a project about that, thats for sure. But first I want to focus on finish Eastern Front, and what await us at the launch of Soviet Corps. :D

Wow uzbek, it seems you managed to infiltrate a powerful force directly into the heart of the enemy!. But as I can see in the minimap, it could cost you dearly... your Baltic front seems to be at the brink of collapse!.
What happened with your forces at Berlin?, they were destroyed during that German counterattack :shock:
Good luck comrade!.
