Stalingrad Campaign

Hello, actually I'm working on Stalingrad campaign as you perhaps know.

:arrow: The first step is to add some specific elements to Stalingrad: ruins, industrial buildings, factory, ...

Grain Elevator :
Image Image Image

Industrial buildings:
Image Image Image

Train:
Image

Fuel tank:
Image

I'll add more factory, specially the large ones. :wink: Ruins, debris, new trenches, shell hole, ditch, ... are already planned :

Ruins:
Image

More ruins: (we need a lot of :mrgreen:)
Image

Shell hole:
Image

Ditch:
Image

Factory:
Image

:arrow: The Second step is to add some new units if necessary. Any suggestions? :idea: :?:

:arrow: And the third step is to see how render the urban combat and the house to house tactical. In a perfect world/game we need to have different floors for the large building. But I guess I can't deal with this features... So here again all suggestions are welcome! :idea: :?:

First off - bless you Sir for taking a stab at this when Slitherine would not. :P

As for:

Commissars perhaps ? - to shoot cowards who betray the Revolution?

One other thing (which maybe you already have planned for the final version) is to make the ground more Stalingrad-like:

:arrow: About ground: good idea! We need some new textures for tiles.

:arrow: About Commissars: um not sure. Or make special moral rules for Russian troops... Perhaps make some 'leader' features like well a famous ww2 tactical wargame.

:arrow: About new units I've spotted:

- German 2.8 cm sPzB 41:

Image

- URSS 203mm m 1931 "Stalin's sledgehammer"

Image

Well I'm not sure it was used into Stalingrad but it's rocks! :mrgreen:

Hello! I'm still alive :roll: and still working on Stalingrad! :P

Working on ground textures:

RailStation n°2:

Grain Elevator:

I'm still not completely satisfied with the final rendering, but it begins to look more to a ruined city like Stalingrad.

Looking Great Amaris - keep up the good work ....

Only thing I would add would be more grit / destruction to the sidewalks / plaza tiles ...

Other than that - coming along very nicely.

Thanks

First (beta test) release: version 0.1 -> http://amaris-games.com/wp-content/uplo ... INGRAD.LST

Warning: this battle is not finish! So the difficulty and the balance is not set correctly for now.

This is a test to verify if the new models are not too complex and if the battle run fine on low or medium computer / Ipad. Please post here your feedback - thanks.

Thanks for the tip Pip !

Looking really good Amaris.

Just loaded the first mission and was panning around - has a good Stalingrad feel to it.

Will attempt to play sometime in the coming week.

Thx 8)

I guess we need more rubble on street but as there are already a lot of objects (OBJECTCOUNT 3812) and some 3D models are heavily complex. I test on my Ipad Air and the game seems run fine.

Note:
- there is only one battle for now! Don't worry other is planning.
- the walls can be destroy by all units: this requires no move and one satchel charge.

Just played it for the first time it's a brutal map as I'm sure you intended even down to shelling your own troops my 1st attempt I got 1 flag with 6 units remaining I'm sure I'll do better next time keep up the good work it looks like this maps going to be a cracker when it's done

Yeah this battle is too brutal. And russians are too many. I was able to take the control of the rail station but not more. :lol:

Otherwise no slowdown?

Able to capture 3 flags by flanking wide right and left run out of time to capture the 4th will you be making multiplayer maps aswell as the single player ?
