FutureOfficial Expansions planned for Battle Academy2?

I Would like to see more content for this great game that could also supplement the random mission (skirmish) generator with more units and more variety of maps (e.g. Rising sun-Japan campaign)

It cant be a lack of designers, right, Pip? So you are saying you are not going to put out any more modules? Was it a sales issue? I always thought that BA sold rather well.

After working on the Fortress Metz module ... a couple of years later I dropped the hard drive that had my development files for the module. The only file to survive was my planning spreadsheet - which did include some scripts. But I am glad that most of what I would need to build one of those modules is actually in the games themselves.

Just let me know if you need a designer again. Would love to build Modules for BA2.

I see in the manual that one of the 2 designers is that Iain McNeil guy.

I wonder if he can be found and recruited for more work :wink:

Do you know of any mods for BA1 that add a skirmish generator like BA2?
Thanks

I dont think that it has the capability but I forget. Might have been added in in one of the later modules. As I never play the skirmish option for a game I am not sure I am the best person to answer this question.
