  1. Thank you Slysniper. Always nice to hear player comments. Meijel is one of those more obscure battles in Holland after the failure of Market Garden. Finding detailed info was pretty hard, but eventually I found enough. Only on the German OOB info was scarce. But I could not resist making it. It is my own backyard . I went to visit the site too, but much has changed. The map is VERY much like it was in 1944, based on detailed period maps and photos. It was fun to make. It is somewhat oversized. This is intentional to give players a good feel of what the area looked like. There is also a master map which is larger. More battles where fought here. Maybe someone feels the urge to make one or two.
  2. This saddens me greatly. He will be missed. Anybody have a link to the memory page?
  3. I think it is a good idea to take a scenario you like and try to improve it. Getting more enjoyment out of an existing thing makes sense. And maybe it will inspire you to take your scenario making skills to the next level. You can never have enough scenario makers around
  4. Ah, Gates of Warsaw Redux gets a workover. Hope you had fun tweaking it. I had fun making it. I see you are in the business of reworking existing scenarios. Have you tried making a scenario from scratch yet?
  5. Must be an install issue, like some said. I assure you I did not give those names to the units. The horror
  6. A salute to all we have lost along the way. And to those of you still around, eh...well...ah, good to still have you around. And I mean that. Even you, Emrys.Even you.
  7. Making scenarios is dangerous indeed. Before you know it you are snatched by BFC and forced to join the Beta boys. And they be crazy!
  8. Thanks for the AAR, quite a lot of work I guess. You did pretty good at Meijel. The idea behind this scenario was to force the German player to more or less stick to the roads, yet present him with enough options to choose from how to approach. Also, to have long range engagements, especially with the armor. It shows the strength of the Panther, yet they can be hurt especially after receiving multiple hits. So just blundering into the American line is not a good idea. All this against a historical backdrop. A battle that is also not very well known. It was fun to research and make. Again, thanks for the effort and the kind words at the end. Getting this kind of feedback is great. I hope to make more scenarios for the upcoming modules.
  9. I don't think you will regret it. There's more good scenarios in there, that will keep you busy for quite some time.
  10. Well, this is the first time I see somebody have it relatively easy in Han-sur-Nied You had a tougher time in Singling. Your playing style is very systematic, conserving your forces carefully. That helps in a scenario like this. I do not have the patience for that. That is why I usually have my ass handed over in many scenarios, heheheh Thanks for putting it up on youtube like you did with Singling!
  11. Good advice there, George MC. Start simple, start small. Look at other people's work and learn. Read the excellent guide supplied by BFC, but don't feel pressured to do everything in there perfectly. Pinch other peoples maps and adapt it for your purposes, or crop some piece of a supplied Master Map. Huge time saver. Don't be tempted to start with the Mother Of All Battles. You will likely never finish it. Waste of energy. Making scenarios is fun, but it takes some practice. But it can be done (heck, even I took the plunge with my limited skills, so everybody can). And once you finish your puppy, you feel on top of the world
