Default WinSP Scenario Design Clinic

I am currently working on setting up a Scenario Design Clinic for those interested in getting into Scenario/Campaign Design but are not sure where to start or what is really involved.

It will allow for new designers to post their project and allow others to help them test, comment on and provide guidance as the project is being worked on. Designers can also use their thread to request specific assistance from veteran designers.

It's in the early stages at the moment and another announcement will be made when I get things more organized. It will cover both WinSPMBT and WinSPWW2.

If you might be interested post here and I'll try to answer any questions as well as provide additional information on the project. You can also shoot me an email at spmbt-project@combat-campaigns.com

This is a good effort from Double Deuce, and I will try whenever possible to provide my assistance to anyone who needs help on advanced scenario issues.

cheers,

I know the feeling. I have about 6 campaigns in various stages of being finished.

There are a lot of people posting great ideas for scenario's that will never get done. We need some of these "idea people" to take it to the next step and learn to design. If they have the idea in their head chances are they have an OOB and the scenario breifing already thought out to some degree. It's not hard, time consuming yes hard, no.

What I would like for this clinic to do is allow others to provide place for designers to get guidance and support to keep their project moving through to completion. Then release them as a Scenario Pack.

Hi Guys - I've just joined as I've only recently hooked up with WINSPMBT after playing the various DOS versions to death!

I'd certainly be interested in a scenario design clinic as I have a boatload of ideas but zero fraction patience to finish anything!

Example - I want to do an early '90s confrontation between Egypt and Sudan in the disputed Hala'ib Triangle - a Sudanese helicopter assault against some frontier unit outposts, with each side throwing in reinforcements of various kinds.

My problem is making the maps. Can I do it? Yes, I just find that part of scenerio design tedious.
I much more enjoy placing and editing of the units, creating the waypoints, and writing the text.

Currently looking to "team up" with a quality map maker to
speed up the process.
Topographic map design from actual topo maps creates the best maps I think. Alot of maps have far to much "clear" terran on them.

I know what you mean - maps are the one thing that put me off doing any scenario design.

For instance, can anyone tell me:

1) how to put down barbed wire in a hex

2) how to choose suitable buildings for a camp or outpost style settlement?

TIA
