Honestly I wasn't even aware the objectives in Znem changed, heh. It would explain some things though. In every other respect I think it holds together well.

Checked the primary objectives in Znamenka. I can't find any issues with them (they are quite straight-forward).
The trigger number of objs really can't change during the game. Maybe it was an end-of-the world fluke?

In the briefing it says Primary Objective: Hold at least 3 objectives.
We did that but we end with an Minor Defeat.
This one says 5/3 but the end screenshot showed, for the Germans 3/5.
I couldn't make a capture of that due to the issues with the End screen mostly overlapping the Turn Overview screen.
I pointed that out in the latest Beta but that's besides the point.

Playing Normandy US 1944 V1.0.

Played first scenario on lvl 4, got beat up and did not have nearly enough RP. Used igotnukes

Played second scenario Utah on lvl 3. Plenty of RP. Took 4th victory location on last turn. Victory claims it needs five locations. There are only four arrows on the map, cannot win because I only have 4/5. There is not fifth.

I like them both, but the first scenario takes a very long time for the german turns.

Keep up the good work

Sounds like it might be time to check out some updated multiplayer scenarios, heh. The objectives for Znamenka seem reasonable enough to me, worst case a bit confusing but definitely not broken. I do wonder about unit spawn points for the Germans. Or, I did... Since everything is now auxiliary a bit of a moot point I guess.

Very dumb question from a newbie, are all the Erik's campaigns and mods built into the lastest DLCs or are these in addition to the base game and all the 17 DLCs?

Also, I am running this via Steam so anything special I need to know?

First two attempts to download some of these campaigns and install that has failed. Not sure if I need to dump everything into one folder? Did not work. Moved some to the Camp folder and then cut the sub folders and moved them up, did not work. Do I need to just dump like folders into like folders and overwrite things?

Pretty confusing.

Don't worry, everyone finds it tricky to begin with but DEFINITELY worth figuring out. And really not that difficult once you get your head around it. Have you tried the "where do custom campaigns and scenarios go" discussion? If not...

https://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=82576

The Micromod thingy which Erik made and contains all his stuff goes in the mod folder if that helps. I'm sure I'm explaining it badly but don't worry, someone who actually knows what they're doing is bound to come along sooner or later! :D

First off thanks for all these scenarios and campaigns.

Two questions or issues.

1. When I tried to download the: Continuation War 1941 v1.0 21-5-2020 the dropbox link says this was deleted. However, when I went to the BrueErik CSD Studio I was able to download it.

2. For the MircoMod, NavalMod, and SquadMod (and one I found called Poland) but when you unzip these files, they have what appears to be duplication folders and files to the base game. So my confusion is what to do with these?

Someone suggested these go into the Mod folder, do I just dump the whole thing into there like so?

Had a feeling you'd get the hang of it quickly. By the way, I'm always looking for people to test me on The Russian Campaign one vs one scenario. I can give you the link for the latest version if you feel up to it (it's made by Parreigo who does a lot of great maps and in the discussion of the same name) but be warned. It is by far, I repeat by far, the largest map. So, something of a commitment...

It's actually this one

https://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=95932

But yeah probably best to get a bit more experience playing first. There are some sneaky little tricks to this map too, like the Russians can buy cheap useless conscripts and then upgrade them to regular infantry next turn for a combined cost in requisition points that's less than just buying regular infantry outright. I'm currently tormenting poor Celeborn in a game but he'll get me back for sure, he always does.

Hello Erik!

I've been working through your new campaign and hadn't come across any technical issues until I got to Rijkevorsel. I am unable to deploy any units during the Deployment phase. There are no available deployment hexes and the map will not even scroll when I try to move it around.

Regards

That is odd as I have played through the whole campaign.
I'll take a look at this issue and fix it for the next MicroMod update (wich should not be too long).

Thanks Erik for providing lots of content for the game.

Like I said earlier we have played the 2v2 A Bridge Too Far with four players but it was a bit bugged. AdmiralYamamoto took a look at the 2.1 version but still noticed some bugs. So I took the liberty of looking at the scenario and fixing all bugs I found. Here's a link for the scenario. I hope you accept it to the MicroMod. In that case you can remove the "tumpio" ending from the version. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ ... gEQ4UGN9o5

Changelog:
- Resource income from silver flags didn't work, (but I think they worked in previous version?). They should work now.
- Control points from gold flags were added (or removed) once every turn leading to huge scores (and negative scores). Now they are counted correctly.
- Control points trigger win or lose as said in objectives.
- Skytrains didn't deliver resources. I think this was because the triggers were single use only (1, not -1) and were possibly activated for Skytrains delivering troops too (not sure about this one). I changed the Skytrains to Core troops and the triggers are only activated by Core troops now. I also think some US triggers wanted a British Skytrain or British triggers wanted US Skytrain. It was hard to notice that they are not the same unit. :D The Skytrain now go into reserves once they deliver resources but cannot be redeployed.
- Few silver flag locations didn't actually produce income, triggers were missing.
- Some silver flag locations were missing when checking the locations from objectives (some might still be missing).
- It seems Add Resources with the option Team does not add resources for anyone(?). So I changed those back to two Add Resources with Alliance option for Germany.

We also made some observations about the balance in the map. So I might edit this version of the map further, at least when we have played it more. I will gladly post them here if you are interested.
