    I think the map needs to encompass more cities, so you get a feel for the real strategic picture prevalent during the war in Europes many fronts. The map needs the Middle east as well. What I am saying is France is going to need more than just a few cities. We should use a largest map possible, without hurting turn times. It should be what no one has done before. You could have a campaign map with all of Europe and parts of the Middle East. You could make scenario maps for certain battles, like the battle of Liege, or the Battle of the Frontiers, and the Battle of Mons. Scenarios dealing with one battle or a certain sector of the line. These are my suggestions. I cannot wait for this to come out.

    I'm glad to see you guys are talking about the scenarios for Blood and Iron! I'd always envisioned the Europe map just using the one that comes with CIV. It's about the right size and includes just about every front of the war.

    I've gotten some replies back, but not very many. Is anyone seriously interested? I'd prefer to have someone who's made a couple scenarios already.

    I'd love to help. I'm probably not the best scenario maker, but I can help when/where needed.

    So.... could we get an update on whether we can expect to see this mod in action? Are scenarios being created?

    No, I don't think so.

    Is anyone creating scenarios?

    Is it planned for Civ5(since it seems to be taking so long :p).

    Ya, I know that, but it seems that it has been in progress for about two months without any updates(so I'm going to guess they will wait for Civ5, and make it for that).

    Why a wait for Civ 5? Has there been some suggestion Civ 4 mods will work with Civ 5 out of the box?

    This is a Civ 4 mod, and it looks like a ton of work went into it. Its a shame to think it just stopped so close to completion. Or has SnafuSmith been recruited to work on Civ 5?

    In either case, how about what has been completed being released for whoever wants to use it to make maps with it?

    I'd be surprised to see SnafuSmith working on civ5 considering the likes of Rhye, Kael, and Dale aren't working for them. Nevertheless you should really finish this mod if your even remotely close. It'd be a shame to do all that work for no enjoyment.

    For a Middle East Scenario you could have Pre-State Israel and Pre-State Saudi Arabia as vassels of the Ottomans that can be bought as the British did.

    SnafuSmith has a huge library of WWI units, I hope he can put that to use for a Civ5 mod without alot of extra work. One of these days we need a good WWI mod.

    It's not quite dead, just mostly. I do plan on making one for Civ5, when it comes out. If I get some time to work on the scenario, then I can see this one finishing.
