There are still some bugs and settings for the AI.

@Pip: I have some troubles with function PlaceUnit :shock: **WARNING**: SetUnitFacing unknow unit: -1

I realized that there were already 64 units on the map. I remember I read something like this but I can't find it :(

can you confirm me that there is a limit of 64 units per side?

Yes there is a 64 limit and that's an error you'll get when it's exceeded.

I hope I've removed all bugs :P I mostly need to feedbacks on the difficulty setting to validate this scenario for user content.

Thanks to U :oops:

No other advices on the difficulty? Because if that's ok I will like to send it quickly to the user content system.

A little pause in my work, but I intend to return ;-)
I have lots of ideas: perhaps a mini-campaign on the capture of Caen, or even a redux battle of Ardennes... Or rather a MP map...

Well we'll see ;-)

A very fun twist on an old story. I thoroughly enjoyed this scenario even if it was just based on the events at VB.Great map and good flow. It took me 3 tries before I was able to beat it, yet when I did do so I earned every accomplishment. With that said, maybe the rockets give just a bit too much power to the Germans and a couple more mounted troops might be better. Just an opinion.

Thanks for the work and again, good job. What Id love to see from you are some multiplayer maps.

I now have a pretty introductive picture :P

I'll make the latest tests, package the whole scenario and submit this for user content.

I 'm seeing what is doable in multiplayer, I have some ideas but nothing concrete yet. Such as accounting the losses of each camp for the award of the victory over the controls of VPs :?:
