whats the next expansion?

Post by blond_knight_new » Wed Dec 29, 2010 2:22 am

Whats the next expansion going to be? Im thinking either the Eastern front or an aviation based dogfight game with the same engine, something like Twelve O'clock high.

Someone like you that is smart enough to figure out ProSim games should be able to do a lot with the BA engine. I'm looking forward to seeing you get involved.

I don't care what they bring out. So many possibilities. The pacific, Italy, Tunisia, early & late war on the eastern front, the Finns. China. It's all good.

More scenarios would be interesting but i won´t mind waiting quite a long time for a future BA2 with loads of new things and some new mechanics. Blitzkrieg is quite fun but i can´t help feeling "this is more of the same". Eastern front deserves no less than a second version of the game, instead of just more scenarios.

Igor go to Campaigns, and look at the top there is a icon that looks like a folder, "download community scenarios", click on it and you can download maps that people made, including the pacific campaign that you are looking for. It is very well made and intense battles

Wow thanks Junk! Now of course you know the next request I have? ;)

Can you make a generic jungle type map with some mountains and hills in a portion of it and make a random battle generator like the Normandy skirmish map?? Pleaseee?

There is only one height above ground level so I can't make mountains.

Yes I'll make some random battles. Do you want Marines or Army? IJA or SNLF? More tanks or troops?

like a giddy girl on her first date ordering her first meal: CAN I HAVE THEM ALL? <bats><eyelashes><quickly> hahahaha

If I only get one choice though I'd say Marines and IJA and more troops but some tanks of course. If you can make a map sort of simular to Guadacanal I'd be forever grateful.

I don't know the codes for the error. Maybe Pip will come along.

Did you place the campaign folders in your My Games\BBCBA\Campaigns folder? Each one by itself?

Do any other campaigns work now?

BF really hit the mark for me and I am quite happy exploring early war scenarios.

I am sure East Front and Pacific can be great settings for a BA2 and 3.

For more BA expansions, maybe Italy, Marketgarden or Balcans campaign could be nice.

How about a Fallschimjagger expansion? that would be awesome! Norway, Crete, Normandy scenarios. A lot of variety.
