Re: Soviet-Afghan War '79 - '89 next please

Sure would be nice to have a game covering that Soviet-Afghan war. It is rare to be able to use Russian military hardware in games. I saw on the store page for the latest Art of War they have a scenario for this. And there is a nice game Syrian Warfare that let's you have a small Russian military fo...

Re: 2021 team event - The Emperor's Throne

I am very scared cause I don't do anything fancy, just advance and scrap it out, a kind of Lord Nelson approach to battle that I can do no wrong to line up my ship alongside the enemy and blast away. Sun Tzu would not be impressed with my performance and might even order my execution for lack of str...

Re: 2021 team event - The Emperor's Throne

If you are incredibly desperate and can't fill the last 3 slots, I can maybe sort of join but I dunno for sure cause I prefer single player and try to avoid MP. The setting of Ming and Joseon etc makes it interesting but MP is really yucky for me cause I tried Fog2 in MP briefly and people did weird...

Re: Japanese Green Terrain Set Download

Thank you for this lovely green terrain.
I will try this after finishing using your orange terrain which is also very very good.
I wonder which is better green or orange? I guess both are equal just need to swap occasionally for variety.

Re: Okinawa Terrain Set Download

That looks beautiful. Thank you for your graphics mods. I still have your orange version installed now. I was thinking of trying the green one. I guess this graphics should only be used for Shuri and Okinawa battles but I like the red and white stripes on the castle grounds. I wonder if they used th...

Re: NEW UPDATE 11.1! AUG1st 2020

Unwig, I wonder if the Ottomans declared war on us cause I took the Italy event to stop them (or slow down anyways) from joining the centrals. I think Italy and Ottomans are not fond of each other cause they were at war with each in other WW1 game. I will try that Anzac event to help. As for putting...

Re: NEW UPDATE 11.1! AUG1st 2020

Unwichtig, that sounds like the best strategy. I was trying to invade Austria Hungary but they sent a counterattack more north that was grinding through the Russians there. My biggest problem was Turkey starting war so I had to waste 2 fresh new infantry corp to block off the mountains next to Anato...

Re: NEW UPDATE 11.1! AUG1st 2020

I tried Entente against the Shleefin historical in the mod again. I did better and Paris survived but Russia was losing gradually and France's front line fell apart. I need another 4 or 5 attempts to survive it I think. For me, the English handicap of no infantry corp is quite a heavy burden. Also t...

Okay cool. If I can get that line made in France it should be okay from there. That ugly gap where the BEF is supposed to be is the problem I need to deal with. I would rather have two BEF corp in that area for French's (who wasn't even French... go figure) famous battle of Mons and fighting retreat...

Re: NEW UPDATE 11.1! AUG1st 2020

That AAR helps. It is amazing you didn't refill the Paris corp cause no Germans approached it. So I think you borrow units from Verdun area to fill in the left end while the ships pop away at the German units from the water. With the fortify Verdun event I guess you can hold there along with Nancy a...

Robotron, thanks for replies. Wow 10x harder! The advice text you pasted says the CP player must take Paris in 1914 and will probably lose anyways. Egad! I was hoping for a WW1 style grinding battle with Somme and Ypres and all that mired in France with mud and trenches abound and new technology bri...

Re: NEW UPDATE 11.1! AUG1st 2020

I just bought the game and installed this mod. I tried Entente with historical Shleefin 4 times and got overrun by Germany right at the start 4 times. They evaporate the weak French reserve units, surround Paris and take it over in a few turns. Only Verdun area held out but that is useless when the ...

Re: Why do units have separate attack and defense values?

I think it is better with seperate attack & defense stats. Some units are good at one or the other like an unarmored Celtic warrior with a 2-handed sword is dangerous attacking and a large, soft target on defense. It seems every unit is better at one or the other like heavy infantry with a big shie...

Re: Battle of Caen - Anglo-German Battle of Normandy (Help and test player needed)

ShermanVC that is fantastic. We need Caen! Nice pictures and battle briefing sounds realistic and fun. Don't worry about the unit limit. It is annoying, but you can make the game more focused on smaller combat and still make a realistic Caen battle. I like having SS units and the traditional German ...

Re: Why No Pacific Campaign?

If you want a Pacific War game, you can try Sudden Strike 4 which has a very good pacific war dlc.
Another new game with mostly naval combat is Strategic Mind: The Pacific
