Re: conboy's scenarios

I'm glad you whipped it before turn 20 -- I was hoping that I didn't make it too difficult. I did add two more turns for those objectives based on your feedback, which I do appreciate very much. Hope you enjoyed the scenario and I also hope you will help me in the future as more come out!

Re: conboy's scenarios

GabeKnight, thanks for commenting further. Some notes in response: You could add more opposition and/or some large "last attempt" counter-attack in the north, but that would mean adding a whole more turns to the scen. That's one of the things I don't like about (too) large maps: too long -> to keep ...

Re: New Scenario: Low Vosges to Strasbourg

Ok, v1.1 is posted, link in OP. Loosened up the objective timelines for Phase I, made sure the German counterattacks are well-supplied, fixed some map spots in which roads were impassable, added some sanity to supply situation. Also added the picture that was missing for one of the Pop-ups. Bru, Eri...

Re: New Scenario: Low Vosges to Strasbourg

Mascarenhas,
Got it!
Thanks for your comments -- they are extremely helpful. I was afraid the early part was too tough, so thanks for confirming that fear. I hope that I can count on you in the future for your comments; I very much appreciate your perspective.

Re: New Scenario: Low Vosges to Strasbourg

Mascarenhas, Check your PM, I left you a link to my replay of the v0.1 to see if it matches your concept of the gameplay. If it doesn't I'd appreciate you advising me as to why it didn't -- if the briefing and the map features aren't clear, I'd like to know. Just so I don't get a rep for putting out...

Re: New Scenario: Low Vosges to Strasbourg

In reply to GabeKnight: "Low Vosges to Strasbourg" v0.1, lvl3 difficulty GabeKnight, you always confirm my worst fears about my scenarios, which is why I so eagerly await your comments. Ok, here goes: 1) I will fix supply situation (being ex-US Army, the entire concept of supply is a bafflement ...)...

Re: New Scenario: Low Vosges to Strasbourg

Erik
The AI has its own evil ways :evil: :D

The Dutch lost one objective and got their supply cut off by a Gebirgsjäger wandering the forests.
I wonder how that happened! You must be holding your lips wrong!

I hope you save me a replay. Please.

Re: New Scenario: Low Vosges to Strasbourg

Perhaps. I thought about that carefully in this scenario. I was plagued by stray bad guys messing with my taken objectives and the rear areas. So, that's why I zapped all the Germans in the south central portion (French Clear... trigger/popup), and in the v1.0, I added objectives to clear two areas ...

Re: New Scenario: Low Vosges to Strasbourg

Yes. The "Dutch" units are sister VI Corps elements (US 36th and 45th Infantry). They are Regiments, not battalions like the 3d division, so have 5-star experience. I think they're all 5-star, at least they start out that way. Later on, when the XV Corps shows up, they also bear the Dutch red/white/...

Re: New Scenario: Low Vosges to Strasbourg

Mascarenhas, Please send me a replay of this playthrough if you don't make it. I must have made some sort of mistake in the instructions or the design if you can't push straight to it. Advance with the whole 15th regiment and about half the 30th straight to Etival. Good luck! Now I'm concerned about...

Erik, thanks very much for the comments! I hope you enjoyed it, which is the main thing! Here ya go, hombre -- Player should be advised about the upcoming effort to take Hill 645. Not about the possible repercussions, of course. An alternative could be to let the player capture it in due time and th...

Terminator: Where is the download link for v0.1 ? The up-to-date link is v1.0, on the opening page of conboy's scenarios. v0.1 is the one it replaced, which was updated for better victory conditions in the end. Do you want me to send you a copy of v0.1? I can't imagine why you'd want one that needed...

Re: New Scenario: Low Vosges to Strasbourg

Mascarenhas, Thanks for playing the scenario and commenting. It's good to (finally) get some feedback. I am doing another playthrough now and sometimes I hit the Phase I objectives at 17 and sometimes at 20 -- Etival is just a little too far. I wonder if I should get rid of the infantry protecting i...

Re: CP adjustments - SPAT edition

I would not like the US versions to go higher than 5 now. They're supposed to be less costly than tanks and the US M10 was everywhere.
