Its been quite a long time and I don't believe the community content has been updated with new scenarios. I think the developers should update the community content with more scenarios because not everyone checks the forums and adding them will lead more people to play custom scnearios

sometimes I think it would be great for this game to have a steam workshop page, as I find it very convenient and fast to use for Men of War, but I do realize that not everybody has this game through steam which would mean that all the work put into the steam workshop would be pointless.
I still would like to know why there is no "live" multiplayer for this great game.

Slitherine/Artistocrats should use every cost-effective method to promote awareness of and enthusiasm for this game. That message envelope in the top left, which I believe is "hot-wired" to the internet, should be talking about Burma now. Social media is of course another avenue to explore.

Agree. But the question is - is the customer base for this game present on social media? I am kinda guessing we are mostly older people with jobs, spouses, girlfriends (mostly men around here, I guess. Wargaming women, prove me wrong.), mortgages and sh*t to put up with. I am not on facebook or twitter or any other stuff. (Not old-fashioned, just not the nerve for the distraction. And it's a procrastination black hole...)
So, how do you enlarge a niche market? Apart from raiding the Panzercorps fan base?
(Sorry, but I always like these business school brain-teasers. And I want the Artistocrats and Slitherine to drown in money, pretty much like apple. The liquidity on their balance sheet will become sentient soon... :mrgreen: )

Totally agree... it's a bit of a shame that these two icons (the envelope and the wooden crate) stay idle like that. The game is expending, but at the same time this makes it look... idle, while it's not true at all.

Well, the Steam version automatically advertises a lot of stuff for you when you log in. So there's that. But the more I think about it, there is no straight up concept to better market this (apart from vastly expanding the Artistocrat's payroll). I really like this game, but I always have the feeling that it punches below its weight...
