Nice idea to show your battle strategy and gameplay...and what a unit do you buy in the forthcoming session...maybe.

The next one, Mersa Matruh, will be with speech or at least trying ;)
That's the scenario you created btw.

Hi Nico,
Nice to hear you, my heart was in my mouth for half that game, you could have lost half your units ! (but didn't) I loved the use of the 88 against the matilda, but the dice rolls against the Beaufighter were really unlucky. Edge of the seat stuff !

Martin.

Great job Nico... It is good to put a voice with name. I also thought you were going to lose several units. But, I have played against you and I know how well you play.

Keep them coming.

Do you think it's reasonable to have an SE 410 when the 410 become available and maybe an SE Dornier Pfeil for later? Otherwise the SE tac bombers start to become a bit limited.
Similarly SE Ta152, and later FW190 would extend the usefulness of SE fighters while keeping some variety (ie not all Me262s).

Very reasonable suggestions. The SE planes have been introduced in Afrika Korps and they are in the vanilla e-file limited to that theatre of war. The e-file i am working on has removed this limitation. Unfortunately, no other SE planes were officially added despite the fact that the GC lasts longer than Afrika Korps. I'll do my best and post version 20 (including your suggestions) of the e-file update project tomorrow.

Yes, I remember me... :D

Surprisingly, there is still a lot more dramatic gameplay than expected.


I like the idea to update the e-file with new units, but...

I'm playing still with version 18 because I made some new unit icons with my own ID number structure. I'm in the last stages of GC 40'... do you have a recommendation from which point is it useful to update the new e-file? Before start of 41'?

Otherwise I have to build in your new units with different ID numbers...every time... with a new e-file version. :?:

I write each time which units are added, so it is up to you which version to use. The custom IDs i created are between numbers 5000 and 5999 in case you wonder.

Some changes to consider for version 21.

Could you make the start dates for the following units earlier (personally I'd prefer 1935, but certainly early enough to accompany the 36 Infantry into the Spanish Civil War so that the equipment files work with MPC.

German horse transport, truck and train
Panzer 1A and after a bit, the Panzer 1B. Not sure about Panzer 2C, but maybe include an SE Panzer 2c only.
German 75mm artillery
German 20mm single AA (and possibly 37mm)
PaK36
Structures

The 88 was available in the Spanish Civil War but would probably be overpowered in the game then so probably best left as it is at (strangely its sdkfz 7 transport is available earlier).

Thanks captainjack for your suggestions.

More or less 200 additional unit entries were added with use of vanilla icons since the beginning of this project!

Are there any that are not there/missing compared to the origional DLC "captured units thread" : http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=39382
many thanks for info and for your GREAT work
