Initially you can only get SE infantry.
Tanks (Panzer 3F and later Panzer 4D) become available after a few scenarios.

You can't buy SE units in the standard game. Instead, they are awarded randomly (30% chance at the start of each scenario if you have a vacant SE unit slot).

Thanks, but this is not my issue - I picked up multiplayer A&A 1939 scenario game on the server, but when I start playing I am not seeing 1 unit (SS) on the screen and cannot se SS units in the unit purchase menu - not sure why this happens, guess I need to add some .png files (or whatever they are called) in order for it to be visible. Does not happen for me in other MP games.

Not sure why that would be, they were all just the basic things unless that player changed it on their own.

What SS unit isn't showing?

From what I gather all the SS infantry units that pop up in the first few turns (SS regular inf, SS police etc).

My scenario has always been without mods so there's nothing extra to get. It's possible whoever posted it made some changes, I couldn't really say for sure though.

I still tinker with this scenario (though only as a vs AI game), I stopped posting due to some rather large and constant changes. Currently it's modded with tons of new units, but has never been posted for downloading.

Thanks - must be the mod from the player that put the game up.

Cheers

Thanks, glad you're enjoying it. Originally the randomness was just to keep me from going crazy/bored from playtesting it so much, but everyone seemed to like it.

Here's an example of the current version I'm working on; I finally gave in and used tons of modded units. Quite a few more random events and such too; with a good chance you'll just never see most of them.

ARMY GROUP NORTH

Leningrad is mostly surrounded but the siege is fairly light so far, I'm not able to bring enough supporting artillery to do much to it right now.
The battle for Minsk has proven rather epic (1941-1942 Kursk?), I've taken parts of the city a few times but keep getting pushed back. With another wave of T-34s arriving this army group is in trouble.

ARMY GROUP CENTRE

A bit further south the Axis are pressing hard to reach Stalingrad and Bryansk, they are pushing through most of the Resistance fairly quickly. I've been lucky that there have only been a few partisans popping up in the Axis minors, and they were quickly put down.
You can barely see Army Group South at the bottom; they've nearly linked up.


ARMY GROUP SOUTH
Army Group South.png

After quickly taking over Greece and Yugoslavia, this army group rampaged through Russia, splitting again with one force heading into the Caucasus, one to relieve the attack on Iraq, and a small force to attack Egypt from the Eastern side.
Unfortunately a Guards KV and two T-34s are going to be difficult to deal with.

Do you plan on making the updated version downloadable here?

I'm trying to balance Russia some more, once it's a bit better I will.

Had a few issues with my hard drive becoming a brick after I had put a ton of work into revamping it, then a windows 10 update made me lose all my work again. I kept backups but still very frustrating.
Then my video card died, so... fun times.

It also appears that adding in the East Coast of US/Canada is a little too wide for the map to handle without re-scaling everything.

I still want to do this, but it's become lower priority :/
