BATTLE: DNIEPR 43- SOVIETS. SP CAMPAIN BY DKDOM- first shot

Post by dkdom » Sun Feb 28, 2016 4:03 pm

L-O Everyone...

I've already made five maps on my Soviet campain. This time, nobody has tested it....
I decided to release it, I think a lot of people would be glad to...

As I said nobody has tested it so, don't hesitate to give any feedback...

There will be five or six more maps on this campain.... This will be the next release....
Thanks to Petcat, I used his Katyusha...

Here are some prints:

Very good job !
I play the first map, very interesting....but i think the soviets must have some artillery, katyusha and 120mm mortar.

There was a script and a flag erroron the second map.Cauldron. I corrected it.
Sorry for those who couldn't finish the map. everything is good now.

First of all, f*** YES, another dkdom campaign! *ahem*

I don't usually post in forums, but I'll make an exception here, because i love what you're doing. I've played a few of your custom campaigns in BA1&2, and the quality of the maps are outstanding. I especially love that your maps are big, difficult and more complex than most - it gives me the feel of a commander who has to manage several parts of a battle simultaneously. Unfortunately, I can't seem to download this latest campaign, so my feedback is based on all your campaigns i've played before (dnieper43 germans, french & german solo campaigns)

Now, on to the feedback:

Positive
- large-scale battles (lots of units and high turn counts)
- complex and well-thought out defense layouts.
- good variety of troop types available.
- connected scenarios, especially in Boukrine, makes it feel like a cohesive story.
- plenty of defensive scenarios (this is subjective - i prefer defense missions).
- difficulty is high, but the satisfaction of victory is also high (you need to have some experience in BA2 before jumping into them).

Negative
- not much strategic information for most of the scenarios (where the main attacks will come from, any secondary attacks, any reinforcements coming, etc.), makes it hard to gauge how badly i'm doing, and whether i should change my tactics
- difficulty depends too much on enemy artillery and mortars - the BA engine makes them too accurate and effective, and cannot be countered (unless your intention was to force players to search and destroy them). When I destroyed their mortars, the maps became way easier. I suggest giving the AI off-map artillery or air support instead (something with decent cooldown), or give their artillery longer reload times.
- inconsistent terrain. For example, forests can hide infantry, but some open ground tiles also have trees, so it's easy to make mistakes based on how the terrain looks, especially since the maps are so large.
- no historical context. This is a small complaint, but it would be nice to have some flavor text in the briefing, to give it some background (part of what Operation, which units were involved, any famous places/heroes/generals involved?)

So keep up the good work, man! :D Hopefully I'll be able to download and try this one out soon

I'm a bit annoyed to see that some players can't download my maps....
In fact I checked again the linck erased my campain and tryed again to dowload it... I don't have that kind of problem... I don't know where the issue is and completely unable to propose any solution.
I'm a PC player, my proposition is simple... If you have any problem of this kind, send me your mail adress by MP. I will send you a direct linck to download the folder. You can transfer it directly in your campain folder....
I don't have any computer or scripting skills... So I can't give you any solution for this downloading issues....
Feel sorry about that....

I play on iOS, not on PC :( I tried again today, no luck. It's weird, since I don't get that issue with other maps/campaigns. I deleted and re-downloaded a few, just to be sure. Oh well, at least I still have your BA campaigns to sustain me while I wait.

Cannot download your map... I play on iOS and have tried your Dniepr43 Boukrine. I have to say it is a good screino but I am not patient enough to play a unique battle for several hours, and they are really difficult. Hope to see if one day we can download your new maps because now there are too few single player screinos.
Or if someone would like to suggest me where can I find new sp maps? I have nearly tried all the maps in the forum.
Thanks!

Thanks for the awsome scenarios.

Still on the third one but loving it. The night crossings are a challenge. Specially the domotkan one. those artillery pieces are a problem.

Keep up the good work.

A lot of the links for his older works don't work anymore due to a change in Dropbox's way of handling things I presume. Either way it's been a while and I'm running out of scenarios to play, but hopefully he comes back.

(I am not good with words.)
