24 X 24 Mini Map Battle Scenarios for Download

Post by jcb989 » Mon Oct 13, 2014 7:03 pm

Here is Rev 3 of the first three smaller maps I am making available for Multiplayer:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/535 ... NI_MAP.LST

Please remember to delete your previous campaign JCB989_MINIMAP and replace it with this one to get the update.

Thanks P/A for the .LST help as always.

Map 1 is a Ridge Battle, where the Soviets are attacking a German defensive position in late 1943.
Map 2 is a Forest Battle, where the Germans are counter-attacking a Soviet position in winter 1943.
Map 3 is a City Tank Battle, where the Germans are counter-attacking a Soviet city in early 1944.

Force selection is included in all scenarios
Deployment phase for one or both sides, depending.
There is a set reinforcement schedule for both sides in each game.

The maps also have achievements for the Soviet player side.

I don't know what people will think of that in multiplayer so we'll see!

Post feedback and requests for modification here. Thanks, and enjoy!

I should mention that in the forest map, it is a dense forest area but that there are some "surprise gaps" in the blocking trees between forest hexes.
This is more or less intentional right now. It is meant as a complication for the attackers.

I love your small map. I like small scenarios. Also Enric's SL conversion, Guards Counterattack.

Sometimes after work I am just tired at night and it is more work to get into a bigger scenario. Even though I think Big Guns is labeled as small IIRC, there are a ton of units and reinforcements. I would like to see size labeled in terms of map and the number of units.

I see the appeal and value in all sizes of scenarios but I am definitely happy a few small ones are popping up.

Busy with RL but...I have enjoyed these small maps of yours. Like Gerry, I prefer small to medium maps over large ones. Keep up the great work! :mrgreen:

Updated .LST file available in first post, adding the third map: City Tanks

Map 3 is a City Tank Battle, where the Germans are counter-attacking a Soviet city in early 1944.
Soviets deploy, Germans attack.
German reinforcements show up at Turn 3
Soviet reinforcements show up at Turn 5

Ridge Battle and Forest Battle are final in this release, I think so anyway.
Enjoy

Played the Ridge Battle and liked it, partly because I like small maps and small unit density. Despite those characteristics there were plenty of tactical decisions to make I think.

The attacking Soviets get 2 x 82mm Mortars and 1 x 120mm. They are attacking into a forested ridge with a trench line behind it. How do players use the Mortars in this case: 1) Smoke or 2) HE attacks? Maybe a combination is best.
