I have unfortunately found that enemy tanks enter the marshes anyway (even if they have a land in from of them) and get stuck really fast. How can I fix it?
It's pretty time consuming overall but you should definitely look into reviewing the Waypoints section of the manual AND doing extensive testing.

LOLZ, I have never heard of possibility of putting few flags on the same hex. Have to check it, thanks.

Hi

I uploaded a scenario for testing. It deals with a variant of the planned SAS raid on R*o Grande naval air base during the Malvinas / Falkland conflict.
I´m working out other maps and scenarios related with this and other conflicts.

Enjoy

Patricio

Lets say I have a scenario where player is assaulting another side. Enemy receives reinforcements later, but they remain in their positions instead of rushing forward to help the defenders. How to make them move?

As well a giving them a small reaction turn - also try giving the platoon HQ a path to follow that takes them into where you think contact will occur.

If you want a general advance of the defending AI - then you can use neutral or attacker-held Victory hex(es) out in attacker land. See the tutorial scenario, as that is the method used to tempt the Iraqi defender into giving up his defensive positions and kamikaze charging headlong into the USA trainee there.

However, V-hexes on the attacker's side are
a) a clue to the human player that the AI will come at him (which he can then exploit) and
b) a pain to get right (setting appropriate reaction turns for all defenders, and the fact the AI will sometimes decide to step off and regain them early).

Map making. I'm good at it. I enjoy it. I have time to do it. I would be happy to take on a map making project for someone if they are interested in design the rest of the scenario or campaign. All I require is a good reference map to work with.

Which is nothing to do with this thread - you should have begun a new one to allow for the inevitable map requests which would then drive the thread into off-topic land.

Nobody please put any such requests here - wait until the OP creates a new and appropriate thread and then we can delete this post.

This thread is only for the techniques involved in scenario design.

Default Re: WinSP Scenario Design Clinic

Somehow repeating a question I had recently, about AI attacking, as this seems to be working pretty randomly for me. Need to admin I haven't yet tried the waypoints method, as I am tend to create pretty massive scenarios and unfortunately waypoints didn't work fine for me for previous ones. Trying it out with 200+ is rather not encouraging unless I am 100% I do all the stuff correctly.

Situation is as follows: this is player advance vs. AI delay. AI has units deployed already on the map that are supposed to weaken and delay the player UNTILL the reinforcements arrive. Now, my question is: when AI receives the reinforcements and STILL owns majority of the flags, new-coming units will not react and just stay on their spawn points. If most V hexes are lost, then entire army (even the one that was supposed to delay further) is rushing forward.
I am interested in forcing reinforcements to immediate attack while leaving the remaining units to delay and hold till new units will pass through them. Is this complete-able any other method than waypoints? If not, then how to correctly assign waypoints to achieve best effects and make sure this works? Would be glad for deep explanation here or link to such, if possible.
