OoB WWII conversion

Post by terminator » Sat Sep 08, 2018 2:13 pm

Trying to convert the scenario of Order of Batlle Series by staying the most faithful possible in scenario originals.

First scenario Mlawa (Blitzkrieg DLC):

Second that! I only played the demo version for a short time and decided I prefer Panzer Corps. But I'm always ready for new scenarios! :D

New scenarios and campaigns are always a welcome addition! Thanks for the work you are about to start and share with us! I will wait for it eagerly.

Sounds good. OOB has some good ideas but I didn't enjoy the interface and graphics, so this has great promise.

Yes, Order of Battle game mechanics, and interface did not "catch" me... May be I am so much familiarized with Panzer Corps. I tried the demo campaign, but it did not attract me as much as PzCorps still do at present!

This is fantastic! I too tried OoB and just could not get into it, (I will leave the OoB bashing for later), but a lot of their scenarios are quite interesting. I hope you do all
of Blitzkrieg, Panzerkrieg and Sandstorm (which I all purchased btw, plus Kriegsmarine and only played a couple of scenarios before giving up) I would love to see that done. Good luck with this project.

Top notch, Terminator! A nice quantity of work awaits you I suppose, but this is an excellent start. Thumbs Up! May be you want someone to test the Mlawa scen...

Thank you, what I more need it is of motivation and beta-testers.

The map is done.

Here is the city Mlawa:

You can quietly visit the region, there is no visible enemy at the moment :)
All the images for this campaign will have the name : OoB_name.gif or png.
Place the scenario image (OoB_Mlawa.png) in the file : PanzerCorps>UI>scenarios.

Hello Terminator: I need to ask for some help. Having downloaded your posted files (thanks!), I copied Oob_Mlawa.png file in the UI/scenario forlder, and the other two files in the Data folder, where the rest of the scenario files reside. Notwithstanding this, I can´t see any custom scenario to play when I start the game and go to the scenarios/custom... section. I think I must be doing something wrong, but don´t know what... Thanks!

Scenario image OK, but the 2 scenario files Mlawa(4).pzscn & Mlawa(4).pzloc must be placed here :

Perfect, I could make it all work! It's amazing how fast you could make a map from scratch. It looks really well made and geographically accurate. Excellent!!

A good point about scenario of Order of Battle WWII is that the game maps are made from truth maps :

Thank you for the encouragements :D

I am going to take advantage of the fact whether it is a mod to make small modifications (only those whom I need).
I added for example a new orientation of thick forest which was lacking :

Before (region of Mlawa) :

After (region of Mlawa) :

Do you see the difference with the thick forest :?:

This was easy to do with my useful program (http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtop ... lesutility).

Layer River Tiles :

We had only a type of River model in this case :

When there was a bridge, I found that it did not make good with the loop under the bridge.

I then used an existing River model but by changing the orientation :
