Re: Free France Campaign

Details of that "Flight Delay" episode, which the Colonel mentioned in one of his posts, came from this book which I found on Google Books. Having thumbed through the contents, I've just purchased it from Rakuten Kobo. So much to read and do and so little time! :wink:

Re: Free France Campaign

And good content, immersive and historical, within this very first briefing! :D It looks good. 8) You are going to find, Colonel, that much of what you contributed will have made it into this campaign, one way or the other. Not everything, and not word for word. You must trust in your friendly camp...

Re: Spanish Civil War Mod & Campaign (v0.75)

With this competition, The Artistocrats ought to think about adopting this mod for OOB, one way or the other.

Please meet L'Amiral Charles Guillaume Portier! ("Portier" is "Doorman" in French). :)

Re: Free France Campaign

I say Doorman. I associate Slim too much with the British. :D Same. (Was the Doorman commander/avatar actually used in any of the stock DLCs? :?: ) Better and better! For, if you think about it, why would the designers ever have used Doorman for a briefing when in no DLC does the player play the fo...

Yes, I'm definitely leaning that way. Unlike Slim, we don't see much of Doorman in DLC and custom stuff. Besides, being Dutch, he's almost a next-door neighbor to the French!

Re: Free France Campaign

POLL: Choose a leader for Free France briefing! Unfortunately, we are going to need to use Admiral Doorman or General Slim as our Free France briefer. There is nobody better; certainly a French briefer cannot be American, Japanese, German, or Russian. Finnish commanders are too recent (to me) for c...

Don't worry, I will make it work. I have a cornucopia for a brain when it comes to OOB ideas. :)

Re: Free France Campaign

Here's the thing about large maps. This is a beautiful map and I am not about to chop it down and start over but I would not have made it so big. It's 100 x 50 hexes or 5,000 hexes. Figure roughly half is land. There are only 9 friendly land units in the scenario (so far), equivalent to 278 hexes pe...

Re: Free France Campaign

In the end the answer was in plain sight (although I believe Gabe mentioned this long ago). In the unmodded game, these are the only units available to Free France in its own right: Image0438.jpg If the player is going to play as the Free French, then Free France must be its core and these are the o...

Re: Free France Campaign

Erik, I see that you left the enemy units in reserve in Dakar with no provision for deployment by triggers. I take this as freedom of designing and I appreciate it. Screenshot 1.jpg Hopefully, then, you will not mind if I also edit enemy unit names. "Régiment Mixte d’Infanterie Coloniale de l’AOF" m...

Re: Free France Campaign

Therefore, this is what I am going to do: I am going to use the 1st Free French Division and 2nd Amoured Division as templates. There will be other divisions based on them as needed. I will not make reference to "Alpine," "Morocco," "Algerian," "Colonial" Divisions, etc. Image0429.jpg For the compon...

Re: Free France Campaign

Dakar: Aside from the usual fluff duff that I contribute, I am going to add a secondary objective to take some outlying villages "to secure the perimeter" or something. Here is the issue: Nice, big, well-made map but with the objectives being only "Capture Rufisque" and "Capture Dakar," 90% of it wi...
