Default A question for scenario designers only

This question is for active scenario designers

If the game could display nation ID and V-hex flags from non-OOB nations would you use it in scenario design?

Example from a recent query

If you could change Nation ID in ScenHack that would allow a force that included Philippine army units...and have them ID Tagged that way and perhaps also Victory Hexes.....would you use it in scenario design?

Other nation ID's for WW2 could include Brazil, Philippines, South Africa, Latvia, The Cossacks in German service, Mongolia ( fought at Khalkhyn Gol ) Croatia.

If this was an option would you use it?

The reason I'm asking is it's a fair amount of work to do this but if nobody is very much interested it's a waste of our time that could be better applied to other things. You would be creating / using units from existing OOB's but in game they would be Tagged with their own flag

Hell yes. And since I mostly do scenarios with somewhat forgotten nations, I would praise that A LOT.

Right now this is in the " just a thought.." stage and also at this stage just for SPWW2

Default Re: A question for scenario designers only

If this does get done could I ask for a couple of non county flags? Perhaps a "generic Axis" and "generic Allied" flag and perhaps a catch-all "other" flag?

And what exactly would they look like and why would you need them ?

I guess you could need them for a combined force rather than using 1 of the 2 (or more) countries involved.

Perhaps the allied star-in-circle air recognition symbol (white on olive?), Axis is a little harder - Iron cross?

An "Other" flag could be chosen as an alternative to the "rebel" flag in games using same OOB or as non-national units, partisans, International Brigades, etc. Perhaps a "pirate" skull and crossbones?

Just a thought
