The Battle Of Cologne

Post by Petcat » Sun Jan 11, 2015 5:54 pm

Originally on BA1: viewtopic.php?f=105&t=55335
Historical page about it: http://anicursor.com/colpicwar2.html
New map of Cologne and the new unit the M26.
Based on the attack where a Sherman was taken out by a Panther in the streets.
The 3rd Armoured Division then used there new M26's, one took out the Panther.

Big download! Edit new link with VP's!

The download is 26mb, the game freezes up but does complete the download in 2mins.
Instructions as usual:
Right click
Copy link address
Then paste in BA2

Thanks to twoeyes and pip for the M26.

Can't wait to try it. The historical web page is loaded with very detailed engagement information, much more than I've ever seen before on this well-documented event from March 1945. Reading about the actual men involved in the two tank kills and each of their fates is quite humbling.

Congrats on bringing a small piece of history to life!

Just played it on BA2...great! One issue, there are no victory conditions or victory flags in the BA2 campaign? the BA1 campaign did have them. Not sure if that is by design or not. Still a great scenario either way, just thought I would point it out.

Keep up the great work!

Nah I just forgot to put them in as it reverts them to 0 coordinates.
I'll try and find some time to update it.

No problem. so you just have to eliminate all the German units to win...that's ok.

Could I please get a .LST URL? I don't have the PC version and would like to play it on the iPad (I have to manually insert the URL and it has to link to a .LST file directly)

This is a good opportunity to request from the devs an easier way(s) to import custom maps for the iPad version. Without even cut and paste it's a chore, and I think would encourage people less fanatical about the game then we on this forum to play the game more often and perhaps contribute a mod of their own; which would be good for everyone.

Keep up the good work.

You can paste on the iPad, just use the + button to paste in something you have copied from the forum or an email.

Here is a shorter link if you still want to type it in:

Sorry don't have an Ipad to test it but should work as Pip says.
Please let me know if this works.

Hi again Petcat..Are you able to provide a link with a .lst extension at the end. I need that to paste into the address bar on the iPad version, which I'm stoked that I can do now thanks to Pip!

Cheers

Hi Moosemilk
The link should work on Ipad.
Is the link working for you?
Thanks for asking.

@Moosemilk - the bitly url that he provided does indeed download a .LST file so you can use that :)
