 New Free Content Released for Battle Academy!
Community-made maps and missions for PC, Mac, and iPad versions!

We are excited to announce the release of a free community pack for the critically-acclaimed tactical strategy game Battle Academy for iPad, PC and Mac. Created by some of the best modders from the community, this free content pack contains something for everyone, both online and off!
 
In the content pack there are two campaigns, one for single player titled “Crete: Operation Mercury” by “LouisM”. Command German airborne troops during the invasion of Crete in May 1941. Five missions including new units, custom game mechanics, and a brand new tileset bring the battle for the Greek island to life! The second is a multiplayer Force Selection mission pack titled “Fast & Sneaky” by “GottaLove88s”,”Enric”, and “rf900”. This features three force selection maps each offering a different challenge. In Force Selection, players can pick and choose their forces to fight rather than pre-made battlegroups. Want to use more infantry, or all armor? Try a defensive force or a manouvre force? You have those options and more in this pack plus new commands to merge injured infantry units and swap gridlocked units.
 
Getting this new content is quick and easy! Just select Campaigns->User Content can you can download it direct to your iPad, PC or Mac. Within minutes you are on new battlefields and in new situations that are sure to challenge your strategic mind!

For you Ipad BA users and the Pip , i could not download the new user contact
via my ipad , in fact all previous user contact had disappeared , even after
restarting the the Ipad. The only way i could get it was to uninstall BA on the Ipad
and reinstall it again via itunes , you will loose all the game and have to do the
tutorial battle again to unlock the other scenarios.

Hope this helps
Cheers
Ian

Thanks for the tip IDS, I had the same problem. Couldn't see the new content on iPad, so followed your advice.
Deleted BA and re-installed for free from iTunes... Suddenly I can see the new content.
Will have to re-install the paid-for Slith scenarios though...

Gents, If you've downloaded previous versions of Fast & Sneaky MP, using the forum links over the summer, please delete those older versions. Slith have called the user-content version something slightly different, so it's smarter to download the campaign from within the BA app, so players can find each other. I'll put up a warning on the Fast & Sneaky pages...

Just want to let you know I did not have any issues downloading the new content on my iPad 2. Works fine... Did not need to reinstall - it was available as advertised.

Thanks very much for the new content and looking forward to more offerings. Battle on!

Hmmm - very odd iPad issues. We of course tested it on iPad on release. I will dig down and see what could be causing it, although I really didn't change very much.

Cheers

Pip
