    Am I the only person to load the RtW mod, but not play the scenarios? I like to play regular games with the modern civs (favorite of which is Albania :)) and invade, oh I don't know, Norway? Finland? Brazil? USA? Canada? The combat also cool since it implements Dale's Combat Mod (Port Airbomb FTW!) The only negatives are the occasional crashes (AUTOSAVE!!!) limited buildings, and cities called TXT_KEY_CITYNAME_WW2_BALKAN2. Other than that, they are really fun.
    I am doing it with the retail version of RtW BtS version 3.19
    Does anybody do this? If so, what are your strategies?

    By the way, this is my first post, so pardon me if I put this thread in the wrong place.

    It is the right place.

    I am glad you found RTW ... it is one of the best modern official expansion pack mods. Good Luck and enjoy. I did, until I discovered modding and created my own version. And my second version is under development and it too uses Dales Combat Mod.

    I also played a custom map while initial troubles with starting up (well the units are meant to be build with already reasonable infrastructure built at the start of the game) i really enjoyed it

    That is exactly why I choose advanced start, and start at future era. I don't like having 5 :strength: infantry fight 20 :strength: German Infantry.

    BTW, what Civ did you play as? :crazyeye: :p

    Can't remember probably the Nazi's as i play them the most guess i like the superior power of them lol

    first 20-40 turns you are most likely sitting on your hands building infrastructure, workers and Settlers

    The AI Can't handle your mod or barely Kiwitt lol a freeplay makes it a freefail

    I'm used to flailabout AI but this is a bit madness
    it is good i choose islands because when things starts to hit the fan the AI will not stand a chance
    in the end 3 nations did show sign of upwards movement 2 of them i had something to do with it but the fact a third shown upwards movement (and then only few turns before the end of a time game) by the time you can make 1 tank you have enough power to erase the AI

    you can win a time victory without a doubt going to toy a bit with Custom games see what laughs i can get

    My mod is not designed to be placed on a random map - It's historical ;)
