Re: SCENARIO: The Killing Grounds

Thanks for doing that. I've been buried with work since August but hopefully will have leave time coming up in December. This will be one of my top projects to rework.

Re: SCENARIO: The Killing Grounds

No sour grapes at all mate! I agree with your suggestions. This scenario was based on the engagement in the series of books The Black Effect, etc. My first observations of the book's description...

Re: SCENARIO: The Killing Grounds

My apologies. Yes it is, in Lower Saxony south of Hanover. It's listed correctly in the scenario description of the game file but I omitted that in the post.

SCENARIO: The Killing Grounds

I've taken this scenario about as far as I can so I've decided to post it. It's a WWIII WARSAW Pact V. NATO engagement in the summer of 1984, based on the books "The Red Effect", "The Black Effect"...

Red on Red Casualty?

OK, I had a funny thing happen when I was play-testing a scenario today. I had heavy smoke on a Soviet Objective with multiple Soviet armour units engaged. The closest BLUE unit (GB Infantry Squad...

Re: Best post WWII Military Films

I'm going to offer one that isn't SPMBT oriented, but was a memorable movie from my youth. This is the British movie "The Yangtze Incident", shown in the United States titled "Battle Hell".

I've noticed the same issue. In some instances, the terrain does seem to include too many elevation contours. Streams are problematic, but I also seem that to be a reflection of the SP's...

Re: Gotta AI problem here and I could use some help

I had this happen to me numerous times and with help from board members figured it out. Non-APC units should not do this. Check for that. If the units that start their first waypoint go up/left...

Re: Gotta AI problem here and I could use some help

I'm not sure if this will help, but I will often deploy only my forward elements on the initial turn, leaving follow-on elements to a reinforcement turn. I think I may have already said that I use...

Re: Gotta AI problem here and I could use some help

I'll add some comments here.

I've never designed a scenario for exclusively top/bottom movement. I've done a few with flanking attacks from the top/bottom, and in those, I've used waypoint...

Re: Russian Invasion of the Baltic States

Re: Russian Invasion of the Baltic States

I would still say don't bother. The Baltics are not defensible by NATO, in conventional terms, as of now.

What is more they could only be, perhaps, defensible if all Western European NATO nations...
