Default Getting a beach assault in a long campaign

Hi

Its June 1944 and my guys have fought all through WW2 in a British Long Campaign. I really want to send my boys into D-Day with a beach assault. Ive chosen Northern Europe as my battle location and the game has given me an assault mission, however I really want it to be a beach assault, any idea about the best way to get this. I know I can change the map to a custom map with a beach on it but does that give me the option of getting landing craft provided automatically and units like LCGs for coastal bombardment being available?

Any tips welcome

Rob

This is all my impression, not from insight into the code. Firstly, the date has to be right. So, if the campaign date is April or August 1944, you are out of luck. I think the easiest way is assuming the last battle you fought was May/44 and you have a end of game save, just rerun that over and over until you get an invasion mission.

Just my $0.02

edit: oh! I just saw that you are into June. Sorry! But the rest should work if you have an end of May save and patience

It does happen - sometimes. Like the German river crossings at the Meuse in the early German LC.

Hi everyone

I did get this to work in the end. Used the save file from May 1944, started next battle - an Assault in Normandy, went to view map, chose one of the beach maps Vierville Sur Mer that comes with the game. After you leave the view map screen the mission switched to Amphibious Assault, and I was able to buy stuff like LCG's and Battleships. When I went to deploy I'd been given all the landing craft I needed.

The problem was though that when I went to play the game the Germans were deployed too far up the beach - the deployment line was too far inland, so the battle was a bit boring.

So I started again, making my own map with the beach further to the right. This worked much better.

A bit of a pain, but amphibious assault is y favourite kind of battle.

Thanks for the suggestions. I did try just starting over and over but after twenty attempts I still didn't get an amphibious assault mission and was getting bored of trying
