    Thank You All !!!

    NOTE: If you like Road to War - Historical, be sure to check out my new scenario based on Modern Earth as it is today. It has the same level of detail, but on a modern and global scale.


    Introduction
    After highlighting my concerns with Dales Mod here and here I decided I would try to improve it. Dales Mod is designed for Playability where any nation can try to win. My mod is aimed more at realism. i.e. Germany having better Techs and Training than most, Russia having many more men, USA having much more production and England having the wonderful "Battle of Britain" pilots. I have attached the changes I have made to Dale's Road to War. As alluded to in the original thread this version will build on the "flavor" by;

    * Enhanced the planes and ships, by providing more unique units.
    * Additional unit class refinements, thereby providing more control to the amount of the units each nation can build
    * More wonders to the game and place them in their respective capitals.
    * Single install file :D
    * Extensive Alpha testing prior to BETA release (see post 2 below) - thanks to FNP, Supermarine2000, pemery87

    1936 - Road to War - Historical
    I have been working on Dales' 1936 - RTW - European Scenario for nearly a year. I initially looked at the unit graphics in version 1.01 (0.10), but that was not where I was looking for my enthusiasm. I wanted there to be some realism in the mod. So starting in version 1.02, I changed my focus to Divisions, Corps and Armies. This was the best thing I did and will continue with later releases. Version 1.03 was a complete re-write for patch 3.19.

    This scenario goes for 20 years (480 turns) - 1956 :D

    NOTE: Select Historical Play only as this is a "Realism" mod :)
    But you can still play "random" (don't expect all events to occur) or even try your luck in "Open-Play"

    3: Patch 3.19
    4: Due to the increased graphics, a good fast processor and graphics card is required
    5: Windows 7 64 is recommended as is 6 GB of RAM or more.

    This "Rise of Mankind tip" may help lesser machines (e.g. WinXP 32bit.)

    (I am currently developing/playing on a Windows 7 x64 Ultimate, Core i7 920 , 6 GB of RAM with HD 4870 512 Graphics Card)

    NOTE: Not compatible with the Road to War 1.1 UE, but can be installed in it's own folder.

    Installation Notes
    Simply extract the file into your \Beyond the Sword\Mods\ folder and load the new scenario.

    The way I start it is to simply click on the "C:\GAMES\CIV4\Beyond the Sword\Mods\The Road to War - Historical\PublicMaps\1936 - Europe (Historical - 1.04).CivBeyondSwordWBSave" file. It will then automatically load the mod.

    NOTE: Where I have installed CIV4 on my Windows 7 PC.

    Recommended way to play "Hot Seat Mode" as this allows better control of your allies. To Set Human player for

    AXIS; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axis_powers
    Germany, Hungary, Romania, Austria and Czechoslovakia (Build up troops for Germany when they are annexed), Italy - (Activity in Afrika and Albania), Finland (Early battle with Russia)

    ALLIES; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allies_of_World_War_II
    UK, USA, Poland, France, Lowlands, Scandanavia (Norway/Denmark), Greece, Canada, USSR (optional)

    NEUTRAL;
    Albania, Baltic, Sweden, Turkey, Spain, Portugal, Yugoslavia, Switzerland, Iran, Arabia, Arabian Rebels (Barbarians)

    Set all other players to AI. i.e. If you select AXIS set all ALLIES and NEUTRAL to AI, If you select ALLIES, set AXIS and NEUTRAL to AI, If you select NEUTRAL, set AXIS and ALLIES to AI.

    Spoiler :
    1.04 Service Pack 1 - Fixes - discontinued

    These changes will be added when Service Pack 1 is released

    Overview
    Many changes have been incorporated from other WWII scenarios, but still keeping with the format of Divisions, Corps and Armies, etc. This is to give the game a bit more flavour and feel that I felt was lacking.

    Scenario
    U.S.A. to have the tech required to build transports (this fix is available now)
    Romanian Rivers corrected.
    Bitter Winter to have more negative impacts
    Many changes made to yields, in particular towns are very important.
    Locate a US base in Western Africa with Operation Torch Forces
    Locate a US base in the south England with 1944 D-Day forces
    Marsh has been added to replace the forests for the Pripet Marshes

    Units
    Italian SM.79 Bomber do not use air-capacity limits
    Many units ignore building defences ... will check all units
    German Combat Values reduced in strength significantly to reflect the fact that some units may operate independently
    Comprehensive review of all units from armoured division and up and their starting locations
    Russia has gained a couple hundred more Rifle Divs (all with two lives - ouch !!!)
    Some units graphics and sizes have been changed to better distinguish forces and strength
    Alled forces have changed.
    - US units lowest is now a Infantry Regiments
    - British units also changed with Armoured regiments now replaced with Brigades.
    - British also have infantry brigades

    Buildings
    Many new buildings have been added
    - Religious buildings (requires Neutrality in the city to build)
    - Many additional types of factories can now be built (Auto, Synthetic, Plastics, etc.)
    - Additional educational buildings like Observatories, Salons, etc.

    Map
    As noted below, new cities have been added. There have also been changes made to the map as well. e.g. Bremen is now a coastal city. A number of rivers have been added and a lot or railroads and roads have been removed, most significantly from the Russian Front. More resources have been added as well.

    New for this version
    * Convoy routes across the Atlantic
    * New minor nations to replace some of the barbarians in the middle-east
    * Switzerland
    * Arabia
    * Persia
    * Portugal
    * Govt-in-Exiles

    Cities
    A significant amount of work has gone into adding more cities and also making sure the city size is appropriate. The initial "culture" for each city is now based on how many 1,000's of citizens were living there in or around 1940 (depending on what data was available). I have also added "Rebel" towns and cities, especially in the Middle East, which will keep the British, Italians and French occupied for a while. I have also added more cities closer together. e.g. Holland and the Ruhr Area

    I have now also added wonders to the map and appropriate bonuses given. Most are located in the appropriate cities, but there are also some held by rebels, etc. So it is worth exploring to get these cities as well. These wonders also give bonus buildings. (see civilopedia for details)

    Each city now has a number of initial buildings equal to it's city size minus one. i.e. a city size of 3 has 2 initial buildings. Construction of buildings must now follow a set order, which will ensure that the city has the appropriate infrastructure support for it's size. Each Buildings gives differing bonuses for experience, science, culture, food and money (see civilopedia for details). Goods Factory produce "Food" to help the denser cities.

    Cities have seen the re-introduction of "culture", which equals initially the population size in thousands. While culture was essentially removed from the original RtW, except an arbitrary one thousand, when a city was taken. Cities defensive bonus have been increased based on size of the city population.

    New for this version
    * Single "Govts-in-Exile" towns in far away places
    * Single Significant Cities added in other places of conflict (Albania, Norway, Afrika, Monte Cassino)

    Buildings
    Military Building will have increased -negative health
    Coal Plant no longer produces oil - making oil more critical again :D

    Wonders
    Many additional wonders have been added, which act mostly as tourist attractions. However, some modern buildings have been added which give additional bonuses. e.g. Westpoint, Sandhurst, KGB, OSS, Bletchley Park, etc.

    Initial Units
    The 1936 Scenario includes all units the existed in September 1939 for most nations, except Russia which has all units that exists in June1941. Nations can build some units already, based on their initial tech level, e.g. England can build some type ships and fighters, Germany can build Panzer Divisions and Corps and Russia can already build new Armies.

    Most significant Generals have been included for both major and minor nations, and some have already being pre-assigned to units. If the General had achieved sufficient rank or fame, he has been included. All of them have been placed on the map, within the borders of the relevant countries. Leaders have also been added as Prophets and can also be used to settle in the game. They don't play a major part, but added them for more favour.

    Initial Battleships, Carriers and Cruisers now have unique names. They also have unique promotions, based on their speed, range, and armament. This will be further enhanced in version 1.0.4 and later versions. I have also changed the combat values of the fighters and bombers, but this is still a “work in progress” and hope to refine it in time for 1.0.4 release.

    Unit Details
    I have now created unit stats for all significant formations for the major powers involved in WWII , i.e. Germany, Russia, France, England, Italy, USA, China, Japan.

    The combat values and bonuses are based on the actual formation make-up, i.e. number of tanks, infantry, artillery and anti-tank strengths and combined into various values and bonuses. The amount of units a nation can build is now also limited to approximately historical limits. I have therefore limited the amount of artillery available as most were inherent in these higher level units. (see civilopedia for details)

    Each unique unit now has a unit name, so while you are playing you can follow your favourite division, corps or army or even army group. Some Units also have a Generals name in brackets next to the unit. This will help if you want to add a General to lead the unit directly.

    I have included new graphics for major nation units and included the models for the "King Tiger", "Centurion", "JS-II", "T-34/76" and restored the "Panther" to the game. Even Minor Nations have now Unique Units.

    See Civilopedia for details

    Additional unit comments:
    If you intend to get as detailed with the Naval units as you have with land forces, here are the ship classes that might be representative of British/US/Soviet/French/German/Italian navies:

    British / US / Soviet / French / German / Italian
    BB King George V / Iowa / Sevastopol / Richelieu / Bismarck / Littorio
    CA Kent / Baltimore / Maxim Gorkiy / Suffren / Blucher / Trento
    CV Illustrious / Essex / [none] / [Joffre] / [Graf Zeppelin] / Aquila
    DD Tribal / Fletcher / Project 7 / L'Adroit / Z 23 / Navigatore
    PF River / [none] / [none] / River / SG 1 / Pegaso
    SS U / Balao / SC / Redoutable / Type VII / Adua

    All navies had a wide mix of ship types of varying ages, especially BB and CA types. The above ship classes represent either the class being produced circa 1940 (eg King George BB) or the class with the most numbers of ships in WWII (eg. Z 23 DD / Fletcher DD/ Tribal DD).

    Excellent feeback. I will incorporate these classes into the game.

    From a Message
    I can probably do this one unit XML file, but with different Civ files and different unique units. e.g. Spitfire_EU, Spitfire_PAC, Spitfire

    Snipers are probably too small to make an impact against a division. Resistance Fighters really only affected "Civil order" requiring a division to station in a city, to reduce it's rebelion time. While they definitely made an impact they could not destroy a "division". Guerillas Units are a possibility, Just not sure how yet.

    RE: U boats. I have currently in 0.39x made Attack Submarine class for German able to use ocean squares and normal sunbmarines a limited to coastal areas and convoy routes.

    I may remove the "Blitz" promotion from ships. Giving ships massive movement distances, like proposed, would make them quite different to land units, but they would then also play quite a significant role.

    I give this quite a bit of thought. They are excellent ideas and having the input of a "Former Naval Pilot - FNP" makes it all the more so.

    As to the Mosquito. I actually like it as I see it as the Allies, seeing the importance of the ground-attack role, so well demonstrated by the Germans, with the Stuka in the early part of the war and then the latter part, in it's main role in giving the Allies "significant" air support in causing disruption to the Germans.

    I'll review your supplied spreadsheet in more detail over the next few weeks. I want to make 0.4 as good as possible.

    As to ranges on the Europe Map. Each square is more like 100kms as opposed to your 36 miles.

    Woops, so much for counting squares and using an atlas. need a scalar. Multiply Europe ranges by 0.58

    If you want ground attack/ close air support aircraft instead of long range bombers, consider Typhoon, P-47, Mosquito, Il-2, A-20, and B-26. Or, give your 3rd generation fighters significant capability in the collateral damage, bomb, and bomb rate columns.

    Makes one appreciate why navies are important. Ships win the ton-mile/hour race every time. No ships, no Pacific war. No convoys, no British in the conflict after 1942, no US participation, no allied invasions, just a European land war.

    wow it is nice to see that even up to this month some people tries to tweak and improve the best ever game/mod of the history!
    I'm curious to give it a try. I've played so many games of Road to war and yes it's the best game ever but still have bugs and inconsistancy.
    Is there a place where we can download the latest of your modifications? and a little "how to" to install it?

    0.33 is the latest release and all the info can be found in my signature.

    0.4x is due early next year.

    0.39.xx is now under development.

    My first focus is to correct any major errors from 0.3x. e.g. Tech Development costs.

    A more indepth study into German forces will have me reduce the number of "armoured" units. This will also reduce the number on all others as well. As the maximums for German classes also apply for others, e.g. if German can had only 25 armoured divs, Russia can only have 25 as well, etc.

    kiwitt...the russians have 23.000 tanks in 1941, they have the largest armored forces in the entire world, but also the most of those units was T-26 tanks and many of them they used as artillery, because those tanks have a poor maintenance.
