How About Some more Campaigns?

Post by witheford » Mon Aug 19, 2019 6:08 pm

I have just returned to Pike & Shot Campaigns, and am impressed by what a brilliant game it is, even after quite a few years. I would, however, love to see a few more regionally and historically specific campaign maps, such as those provided for the English Civil War, Sweden's High Noon and the Great Turkish War. In comparison, campaigns conducted on the generic map of Europe seem sterile, and don't play out nearly as well. What are the chances of ever seeing more Campaigns (not just battle sequences)with their own distinct geographical theatre of war--say for example, the Italian Wars, or Great Northern War?

There are Wars of the Roses and Suleiman the Magnificent campaigns in the in-game downloadable user content. These use the existing maps.

The problem with creating campaigns with new maps is that the map creating process is so arcane.
