New Fall Weiss 1939 MOD

Recommended Posts

I have finally completed my Corpos based 1939 Fall Weiss MOD for the WW1 engine. It will be posted over this weekend.

1. Armies replaced by their constituent corps and division structures.

2. Expanded naval OOB including many more of the heavy capital ships.

3. All army group commanders included.

4. New nations at start include Slovakia, Venezuela and British Empire.

5. New nations that can appear during the game Free France, Free Greece, Free Poland, Croatia, Montenegro and the Ukraine Reichkommisariat with all of their historical and what-if units.

6. Poland expanded to include Gdynia.

7. New overland convoys routes from Turkey and Romania to Germany.

8. A new overland convoy route for German-USSR trade.

9. New sea convoys from British Empire to UK, Venezuela to USA, Finland to Germany and Iraq to France.

10. New decisions based on Mers-El-Kebir, the creation of new Axis satelites, poison gas on Sealion invaders, an expanded invasion of Norway, Eben Emael etc.

11. Early surrenders of Bulgaria, Romania and Finland under certain conditions.

The game has been playtested until 1941 but may need some balancing.

Its called 1939 Expanded Fall Weiss and will be on the repositary by Sunday.

Feedback is always helpful.

Well, we've been doing something similar. Very interesting to see if this obsoletes our work (that might be a good thing, no worries, as it's still unfinished). However, we probably have a bit different approach when it comes to the units - we'll have elite corps (in the special forces slot, representing mixed infantry and armour formations), corps, reserve corps, garrisons, tank groups and cavalry (replacing anti-tank).

Did you change all the unit scripts as well?

Several minor nations, Poland and the USSR have cavalry in their special forces unit slot.

All scripts have been updated including the unit scripts. Several "armies" still arrive by unit script but as they are actually corps size they will arrive as corps.

The first version will be up this weekend.

I will add other versions as adjustments are made.

I also want to add Dakar onto the map, add a possible early armistice with the USSR decision and several other ideas.

4. Added a decision for the German player to bring Vichy France onto their side.

6. Increased the range of all naval units, strategic bombers and airborne units.

7. Adjusted mobilization scripts to warn the German player when they over-garrison the USSR border areas.

Honch, would you consider a couple new features in your next update? The first occurs when the allies take Rome and Italy surrenders, then the axis player is asked to create the Italian Social Republic as a puppet state at some cost and receives a 2 garrison units with option to build Graziani HQ, 2 corps and 1 fighter unit OR not to create it and saves MMPs. If ISR is created then allies get an Italian puppet state too with 2 garrison units and can build 3 corps. Also, if Yugoslavia is conquered then it's borders should be adjusted as was historical and the axis player is asked to create greater Croatia as a puppet state of Germany at a certain cost and receives a couple garrison units with option to build a corps OR not and save MMPs.

Both the Salo Republic and Croatia are already in there in addition to the Puppet State of Montenegro.

The Croatian and Montengro scripts were a little messed up but have been corrected for the next version that is almost done.

Finland may "surrender" by armistice if Allied units approach Helsinki.

Bulgaria, Romania, Persia, Iraq and Italy will all "surrender" outright as Allied units reach certain trigger tiles.

Yes, regular partisans appear in Serbian territory as per usual and then there are attacks on Axis troops in Croatian and Montenegran territory via strength scripts.

After 1943, if a Yugo partisan acaptures Belgrade (liberating Yugoslavia) then HQ Tito appears!

Honch, your mod rocks!!! I love your orders of battle, improvements to the map features, and the unit sizes (ground, naval, and air). Corps level fits the SOE map scale much better than the army one does, and I'm so happy to see there aren't enough MPPs to keep all units at full strength and I have to make more realistic priorities and take risks. It is a breath of fresh air that SC should seriously consider incorporating into their next patch. Well, I'm at the gates of Warsaw, so only played 3 turns so far, but I'll keep notes and let you know if I have any more questions/comments.

It just seemed logical to have the biggest city in the Netherlands as a secondary. It forces the Germans to commit more than one or two corps to the invasion.

As for Belgium it was because the Belgian army fought on after the fall of Brussels and Antwerp, albeit, not for very long.

I hope to have version 2 up tomorrow.

There is ALOT of new stuff and corrections to scripts that were not firing correctly.

Honch, I noticed couple things with current version. 1) Romanian garrison appeared in Kishinev and VI Corps in Cernauti even though Bessarabia had been ceded to USSR. 2) Italian units stationed in S Italy (everything from Naples south) have been struck twice and reduced 1-2 strength points each time (June-July 1941). It reminds me of Long range desert force strikes. There is no explanation following AI turn.

Yes, the Yugoslav partisan script was carrying over to the Italian maniland. Fixed.

I have moved the Romanian units so they don't get trapped after Bessarabia is ceded. Fixed.

Working on Version 3 right now. Maybe by this weekend. I am busy beta testing Global GOLD.
