Awesome.
One quick question: Is Seeloewe the next DLC (*fingers crossed*) or do you plan to expand your custom campaign into a couple of (mostly fictional) missions in and around England?
And - where do you find the time and nerves to do this?

Yes, this is really awesome. Great Job! Cant wait to play.

I was just starting a blind playthrough of PC, but that must wait.

Did you have a chance to mod the number of units, prestige and aux in the bigger scenarios that we talked about earlier?

Sea Lion is next, a fair number of scenarios.

I try to keep the number of core units reasonably low.

Whenever my wife is on a business trip for a week I keep punching the keyboard...
Converting one scenario takes about a day. I usually spend as much time on it expanding and testing stuff.

Ha! So much for wishing the guy a happy married life! "If so, fine, but first priority are your campaigns and scenarios!" :D

When the developers won´t put out more campaigns fast enough then we need Erik, and If the cost of that is Erik not seeing his wife then that is just the price we all have to pay :D

I like where this thread is going. Hurry up, Erik, the guys might even grant you some conjugal visits. Gives a totally meaning to "labor of love", doesnt it? :mrgreen:

No conjugal visits before Sea Lion. After that we might be able to squeeze in a night of quality time before Erik has to start on 1941 and onwards :D

Regarding 1941 and onwards is the plan to integrate Africa Corps like in the old PC or will this be a separate campaign?

Ive played the first 3 missions and like the challenge so far. I didn´t even get all the polish panzers in mission 2.

After Seas Lion this campaign will probably move to Greece-Yugoslavia-Crete thus finishing the initial west campaign.
The natural next step is probably Barbarossa and the rest of the East Front.

I basically pushed all enemy tank units more and more into the lower right corner where I could annihilate them on one of the last turns. There was still a cavalry running amok in the northern region capturing one unimportant town after the other but who cares. It would be much easier to encircle the enemy on the maps if there aren’t that many supply points on every street and rail at the map edges. That makes killing units a quite time-consuming matter.

Erik, these guys are harsh. I like the way you are simply ignoring comments by the riffraff! (Also the way you keep on working diligently . . . :))

Everyone is allowed their opinion as long as the criticism is valid. It may improve the scenarios.
As for me putting a bit (5) supply in towns. This is to simulate small supply depots and will help in reducing the harsh (for me) out-of supply effects.
It can also be used to alter play-balance in a not too drastic way.

I meant, about your home life. In any event, carry on! :wink:

You mean the Poznan scenario?
It may depend on whether there are 'end-of-scenario' triggers linked to the primary objectives. i think you then get the red crosses until you capture it and it may stay until the last turn.
I'll have to check the scenario.
