OoB Axis Corps

Post by terminator » Sat Jun 03, 2017 8:45 am

Hi,
I will post in this topic all the new scenario playable with axis.

Here is a preview of the next scenario (of course it is not the definitive version):

It seems that Erik did not make this scenario yet.

I plan to do all the scenarios in the German campaigns. I have just been waiting for more German (and Soviet) unit types. So expect an update on my Blitzkrieg 41-42 campaign after the next game update v 4.x.

I don't mind anyone else converting the same scenarios, but maybe it would be better for the community that we don't duplicate our efforts?
Anyway, I intend to stay away from the Russian campaign :D

Hi Erik,
I did not well understand : Have you already made this map ?
In any case I am going to finish this map, too bad if it exists double there.
I examined, two other maps interest me :
- Advance on Murmansk(Platinfuchs) (user-made PG2)
- Westerplatte (user-made PG1 !)

Don't think I've done that particular one.

I'm currently putting the finishing touches on a naval campaign.

After that I plan to convert the rest of the Germany 42 East-scenarios and add these to my Blitzkrieg 41-42;
Novoanninsky, Buzinovska Depot, Storming Stalingrad, Stalingrad Docks, Stalingrad Ruins, Kotelnikovo, Eascape From Stalingrad and Tatsinskaya.

That is, provided I have all the unit types that are needed.

If you don't have this map (Athens), you can use it in your campaign if you want.

Please post the Athens scenario and I'll take a look at it.
Is it an original official PzC scenario or a user-made one?

It's a scenario of nikivdd (More Panzer Content) : http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtop ... 47&t=43224
Very good scenario, lots of scenario to add to your campaign...
The maps seem to be a little bigger than the official scenario (very good map designer), better for the conversion to OoB.

Hi best75,
The first scenario can be delivered in a few days. I have one concerns for a secondary objective but it is not very important.
For the second scenario, the map and the primary and secondary objectives are made.
It remains to place the units. If you want to beta-test it can require a few days ?

Hi
Yes, I have some time to be able to beta-test the scenario.

Hi terminator,
played "Athens v1.01" at mid. difficulty just now. First of all, it's a pity that you don't link your scenarios in the "stickies" threads at the beginning of "scenario design", I found this one by accident only.

The overall gameplay was a little like the Petsamo scenario - quite easy (maybe because this was one of your early works). The map is quite good and I felt like the posibilities were not fully utilized. At least for me, many positions should be heavily reinforced.

I get that it's a defensive scenario also, but there was still room for counterattacks IMO. Especially around Thebes, with enough open terrain and the 3 tanks waiting. The exposed static AT is uneffective there and should support the infatry around the city. The tanks could have attacked as a combined force (with some of the infantry) as soon as I took the city. The way they are now, they just wait around to be attacked - and one of them was even idle most of the time. There could have been at least one arty northeast of Chalcis (safe position with AA).

The tanks around Corinth were excellently placed with my two paratroopers there only - I had to chose to either attack or wait for reinforcements. (the paratrooper-no-supply-bug made it difficult)

And as for your quite exposed arty placement, I'm quite torn, to be honest. On the one hand, the large distance makes them hard to spot beforehand and they're still well in range to support the important positions (maybe good for a human player who knows when to retreat :wink: ), but on the other hand makes them incredibly vulnerable to air and flanking attacks.

The Athen's defensive position was difficult to judge, because by the time I got there, I had plenty of RP to spare and could just overrun them.

And I don't know why exactly, but the enemy attack planes were kind of useless (see the replay for yourself)

I'll attach a replay, if interested.

- As far as I can tell, all triggers, opjectives, popups worked fine, except the "Piraeus" popup had no pic.

As always this are only my opinions and as always THANKS :D for a good time (even if it may sound like I'll complain a lot, I'll always enjoy new content! :) )

I don't like to do too difficult scenario and an easy scenario is more quickly tested than a difficult scenario.

You're right.
There are two histocal events I wanted to add :
- the Greek battleship Kilkis
- the Evacuation of Empire forces (not Dark Vador :wink: )
There are two secondary objectives which raised me a problem :
- the British airforce
- operation Brücke

You're right, will be done.

I will look your replay.

Will be corrected (I confused the name of the image with the title of the event).

No problem, I appreciate constructive feedback but I count on you to test the following version :wink:

Well, Kursk and Omaha were really good ones and I wouldn't consider them "easy"...
But I didn't know this was still a work in progress, so just adding some more units and replacing or/and switching some positions could be enough.

It's been reported before: http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtop ... 64&t=81058
(no supply stash after been cut off supply or being deployed behind enemy lines)
So I couldn't fight back as the tank took my supply hex. My forces were on the advantageous river bank, but I forgot about the bug...

You bet! :D
But please bear in mind that I'm always commenting the scenarios in terms of gameplay aspects only, I'm not that interested in history details and actual historic accuracies like many others may be.
