I`ve played it and got a Decisive Victory in turn 9 using Colonel difficulty level with Ai level set to 2 and the 1.20 rules. It`s relatively easy (I don`t remember how the original played), but I think that`s how it should be for a first mission. All in all it looked and felt nice and I think you`ve done the best of what was possible with the required format. Thank you for making it!

The only thing that might be worth editing is the location of Konin. You have it a hex north of Warta, but it was mainly on its southern bank:
Architecturally, the city of Konin is divided into two historical parts - Old Town (Stary Konin), situated on the south bank of the Warta; and New Konin (Nowy Konin), spreading northward from the river and developed primarily after 1945.

I`m only mentioning this because this being a map correction of an epic screw-up it will undoubtedly attract scrutiny. :D

Thanks a lot :)
The map feels better than the original, at least there are no more Polish troops in the area that belonged to Germany those days. There are also four additional cities for prestige; Gniezno, Jarocin, Sieradz and Wielun.
Difficulty was not increased, as it is the first mission.

New updates!

GC 39: https://www.sendspace.com/file/iy89av

New Poznan scenario, more accurate, more or less same number of Polish units, additional towns and cities, same mission objectives.

GC 40: https://www.sendspace.com/file/4c8x7p

In Arras mission, corrected names for the British generals.

Operation Sea Lion: https://www.sendspace.com/file/ig69k5

In Coventry mission, mission ends with DV when Vichy French capture objectives; In Oxford mission, when Rudel is placed on map, it will be promoted to super Stuka on turn 2.

GC 41 East: https://www.sendspace.com/file/uk93kk

In Belgrade mission, two Romanian officers can now be regarded as merely observers no longer as active participants (max strength = 2), Romanian auxiliaries replaced by German auxiliaries (two Wehr inf, one Pz 38(t))

Let me know if anything else should be changed in any of the GC scenarios.

Hi Nico!

Why has now the new "Poznan.pzloc" (GC39) file less entries in regardig to the IDS_Stringxx entries from the original file?

The original Poznan.pzloc has entries from IDS_String22 to IDS_String43. The updated file from IDS_String22 to only IDS_String37. Is this correct?

And a big wish: When you updated the .pzloc files, can you do this for the german version (path for example: \DLC\GC39\Localization\de\Data) too?

I mean, the pzloc files in german words comes with the original DLC´s too....

Thanks Nico!

String entries are different because this is a map that i have created from scratch.
Your request for a new translation in German is definitely warranted. I think the translation for towns and cities i provide here, is actually better than the one from the original version.

I`m wondering if 2 isn`t too low for strength though. A Yugoslav plane might target them and destroy one in one go and there`s also the possibility of an artillery strike or some sort of surprise attack. Basically anything can kill them at strength 2 with a lucky shot. The chances are slim, but beginners who tend to struggle to complete missions in time might be tempted to bring them along closer to the frontline and be annoyed if they lose them and can`t complete the scenario. I`m thinking that a max strength of 4 or even 5 would still deter players from using them actively and it`s also enough to prevent major surprises. Just a thought.

I'd think a 4 or 5 strength would be enough to deter use in combat but allow a few close calls. A 2 would have to be babysat at all times, especially given the weak air and ground defence of cavalry.

Hi Nico!

I check it and all is well! :D

But a few new wishes: :oops:

- The GC41 Update has a pzloc File too (Belgrade.pzloc). Please for that a german version too! :wink:

- The SeaLion Update has two new pzloc Files (Coventry & Oxford). For that we need a german version too! :wink:

- Can you please merge the "Super Rudel in Oxford" from this Thread >> http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtop ... rd#p574333
into this Update Version from this Thread here (incl. german version from pzloc file)?

- Can you please release a special version (AddOn) from the updatet GC 43 East incl. this: http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtop ... 21&t=49052

Hartmann/Knispel as Core units!

A Big thanks in forward,
Magic

Updates! Again.

GC 39: https://www.sendspace.com/file/izadcr

New Poznan scenario, now with German localization!

GC 41 East: https://www.sendspace.com/file/iy21eh

The previous GC 41 version contained an incorrect Belgrade.pzloc file (don't know how it happened). Use the one from your backed-up GC 41 folder. Since nothing was changed to texts and objectives, no new version in German is required.

Operation Sea Lion: https://www.sendspace.com/file/0cyiai

Corrected Oxford and Coventry scenarios, also with German localization!
Super Rudel appears at turn 2 in Oxford scenario.

GC 43 East: https://www.sendspace.com/file/qyfpsc

Special units with "Kurt Knispel" and "Erich Hartmann" join your core army at turn 3 in the "Prohkorovka" mission.

Both units now as Core Units in contrast to original Scenario, right?

Because in original Scenario both units was only AUX for Prohkorovka Scenario.

BTW, MANY thanks for all your work and realized my wishes! :D

Hi Nico!

Another new suggestion: Can we become a GC39 Pre-Scenario as Add-On, e.g. only max. 5 Turns with one unit, that we after the decisive victory in Pre-Scenraio have a deploy phase in regular Poznan Scenario?

Of course then with adjusted prestige points for Poznan Scenario, that we can buy for all core slots the units.

I think you know what I mean?

Is this possible please?

I've enjoyed the GC39 and GC40 revisions. The changes add a surprising amount of extra flavour.

The later changes sound good too. I will start GC41 once I've completed Soviet Corps.

I've done something similar with the 1914 campaign in Kaiserschlacht: the 'Trial Under Fire' scenario gives you a heap of cash to buy an army with.

Per request.

GC 39 Extended: https://www.sendspace.com/file/r56dkv

An extra mission has been added, so that you can purchase your army at the deployment phase of the Poznan scenario; at this time you might already receive your first SE unit.
You can also keep the PzIIIE from the extra mission or you can sell it.
Before you ask, i also included all the necessary stuff in German language.

Install: copy the content from the GC39 Extended folder into your DLC folder.

Hehehe, I would like to keep the unit, because the unit has a special hero... :D

But why the hero has as name "Achtung Panzer"? :wink:

It is possible, that the hero has a real name, e.g. Hans Müller or similiar? When yes, how?

BTW, the extended version works excellent, many thanks Nico!
