"Uncertainty" _ Game Option:

To have - to make... the Pacific-Game more interesting and challenging... perhaps... introduce some 'Uncertainty' into the Game.

Such as for instance... "The Battle of Midway Island". The Japanese Navy Carrier group [Including 10-Carriers] was going to smash 'Midway-Island'... and occupy it with ground forces... then go do the same to 'Hawaii_ Pearl-Harbour'... and finally... eventually... assault the U.S. west-coast!. Washington had other ideas!.

The American Fleet with its Carriers was instructed by Washington to head for another destination instead? [Can't remember which] ... as Washington expected a major Japanese assault effort in that location… instead of directing the fleet to the vicinity of 'Midway Island'... in which later on the 'Enterprise-Carrier' was redirected too.

What happened was that... the American Naval Intelligence services... instead accumulated enough clues to indicate that Washington's decision to direct the fleet to where it wanted it to go was 'Wrong!'... and that... the 'Real-Target'... was 'Midway'. The final 'Clue' was that 'Midway-Island'... by means of the Intelligence-Services... reported that Midway-Islands Water-distillation [not sure exactly] equipment had failed. Then intercepts were picked up later on from Japanese communications that 'Target AF' had serious water issues. So!... now when American Naval-Intelligence intercepted that communication from the Japanese... they then knew that 'Midway-Island' was the true-real Japanese Target. At this point... the Americans began to feverishly fortify Midway-Island as well as send as many aircraft to it as well for defence/offence purposes.

Now!... in this GAME... have an option to include 'Uncertainty'... such that Naval-Intelligence... failed to intiate a false water-issue-failure... so that the Japanese would not pick up on that information... and that now because of that... Washington's original plan went ahead,... instead . Then... the Japanese Plan just may have just worked out!.

Make it a random 25%-35% possibility that Naval Intelligence failed to ascertain the actual true Japanese ambitions.

On the engine from Panzer Corps 2, it is not possible to create a full-fledged battle in the Pacific Ocean, alas, the engine of the second part is designed for small battles (

I would say the exact opposite. Sure, you can't create a giant map that deals with the whole area, but that wasn't something that was used in anything but mods in PC1 either.

Most of the fighting in the Pacific was actually limited to rather small settings, a few divisions here and there, not the large scale fighting you saw elsewhere. Outside of China that is. The early Japanese advances can be handled similarly to what was done in the game so far, and the push back through all the small islands is even easier to get done, as they only deal with small areas. Naval engagements might be a bit tricky, but it's not like those happened over gigantic distances either. If you can have a big map that deals with the Channel Dash, then doing Midway shouldn't be an issue.

Suggestion for Panzer Corps. Add some additional scenarios as a stepping stone to the invasion of the U.S.. Suggest the following: invasion of Iceland, Invasion of Greenland, Invasion of a Eastern Canada, invasion of the U.S. from Canada.

Strange that the project is done by some guerrillas no pictures no announcements or answers to questions) Is this addon exactly who is doing it?

All right, I'll go play the real mods on this topic)
