Battle Location and Season Guide
 
1 Attachment(s)
Here’s a guide that shows what location and season the game will probably generate for different opponents and dates.

This may help players who want to fight a battle in a particular location, or season, and may be particularly useful to players who are not familiar with various WW2 campaigns.

NB. The campaigns listed are general, or list the nation/area the battle was fought, so should not be taken too literally as historic labels.

Months that are half-summer half-winter may load maps of either season.

This guide is for:

Germany
Britain
Soviet Union
USA

Here’s an image of the guide, but I’ve attached it to this post in Excel Format so you can download it and edit it, or add other opponents.

Suggestion for Game Designers:

The last three months of 1944 may warrant adjustment, Germany vs. Britain, in Holland. Currently those three months are all generated as the winter season; so Holland gets a longer winter than the Eastern Front.

Dutch meteorological data shows that October and November 1944 averaged about 7C to 10C (45F – 50F) with only two days where the low reached 0C and -1C. Rain for October totaled about 6cm, November about 17cm! So there should be more mud than usual in November.

December is a month of two halves.
The first half averaged about 4C (40F) with heavy rain (6cm)
The second half averaged about 1.5C (35F) with 6 days that averaged below 0C, with only 1cm of rain; but no snow until January

January 1945 was freezing with plenty of snow, so clearly deserves the winter season.

Here’s some general weather data from the 2nd Canadian Division in Holland:

I’ll attach detailed data from the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute in a text file.
