Shock help with finding scenarios

For me, what would really help this game would be more information about the scenarios to help in choosing a scenario.

Something that is sortable and filterable, with info about

1) size/complexity of the scenario
2) sides involved in the scenario. For example, be able to set a country like Germany, Soviet Union, USA, etc and only see scenarios that involve that country.
3) Historical date of the scenario.

The orginal in-game tool for scenario selection was always badly done and very limited. John Tiller's Campaign games from the same era of game design did it much better. Now the scenario list has grown huge in the game, and its almost unmanageable to a player.

So, being able to say that I want a large scenario involving Japan in the first part of 1943, or that I wanted a scenario involving the Americans in late summer 1944 would be a huge help to players.

And, to make this useful, you wouldn't even have to touch to code in the game. Such a tool could exist on the side as a webpage, and the game install could just put a shortcut to that link in the folder.

But please, something other than just a long list of hundreds of scenarios with only the scenario designers text to try to go by. Please?

Default Re: help with finding scenarios

I guess you don't read the game guide....... ( don't worry...you're not the only one......)

That is already built into scenhack ( IF you own the game ......)



Read the section at the end of the guide titled...

Extended Game (CD) only Features for 2016

it does virtually everything you are asking for......as well as the ability to save as a csv and therefore print a hardcopy
