Whooo, thank you very much for all your hard work on this.

I'll be sure to check them out but first I'm gonna do the single player campaigns a few times, just to get a hang how the game works.

Yes, I would run through all campaigns to get a good feel of the game, watch AI tactics etc.
Multiplayer is an altogether different beast, but fun!
'There are some official ones as well. From simple ones like 'Water & Steel' to more complex cooperative ones like 'Fork' with 4 players.

My friend has just signed me up for duty at Betio. I"m a raw veteran. But thank you for these, and hope they serve as a reminder to us all of the sacrifices made for this great nation, the US of A!

And others who have fought for freedom, of course...

Wow, all these maps and scenarios look super fantastic! Are you doing any work to ensure they work smoothly with 1.0, or are they "as is" and play at your own risk? Just curious.

These all look like massive battles. What would you say is the smallest map/battle, unit density also taken into account?

To me, Midway looks pretty small and manageable. What land battle is the smallest?

I just noticed there is no link to download the Midway scenario.

The smallest naval battle is Wake Island.
The smallest land battle is Papua New Guinea, but I am just about to publish an even smaller one.

Thank you. I look forward to your new map.

What about the link to Midway? It's not in the link list in your first post.

Is there anything else I need to do in order to play these maps in multiplayer? I unzipped them to the scenarios folder. Each scenario has its own folder within there. Is this correct?

I can select these maps when I try to host a battle, but it won't let me join a battle. For example, there is a Betio Island game available to join right now, but it still says I don't have that map installed. But, I do and I can select it when I host a battle.

Merrill's Marauders

Post by Erik2 » Sun May 03, 2015 7:36 pm

Smallest land battle so far. This depicts one of the skirmishes between the US/Chinese/British troops vs the Japanese in Burma.
It was the second action of Merrill's Marauders.
Note that the first turns are mostly 'combat free' as the Allies move south to engage the Japanese.
Scenario files in first post.

When you open a folder, there should be four items in it.

Yes, I see four files, too. It seems to work, I just can't join the one multiplayer game for some reason. I have the scenario, but it says I don't.

I'm playing Betio as US in another game. We've finished turn-2 without any problems so far, and the Japanese play first.
Sorry you have problems, maybe this is related to wether the US grabs the coastal gun on the top left of the island or not... :roll:
I did in my game. I'll check the scenario in the editor.
