Congratulation Dale on adding yet another awesome incarnation of an all time modding master piece. I am downloading with great excitement. It is sure the time to tread this Road once again.

Thankyou, it's great to hear that someone has fun with the mod. Yes, 90,000 people downloaded AOP1, but don't assume they all tell me if they enjoy the mod. ;)

Yeah, being an official BtS mod certain disclaimers are required. ;)

As for Global Assault, it was written in the next patch (as an official mod I get certain liberties in assisting patch writing) but when it was obvious it had been delayed I downgraded AOP2 to 3.13. But the 1936 - GA is too big to downgrade. :)

Dale,
As always, wonderful job. I have literally played no other game (Civ or otherwise) except for RTW since I bought BTS last year! WW2 rocks and I appreciate your work on this effort. Downloading now.

Is there a difference btw this release and beta 3 of 1.2 ?

Can one switch on/off features in DCM 1.5 ?

Theres a number of changes from last beta to AOP2, including all the maps.

Yes, use the same XML file as DCM to turn things on/off.

Well, I successfully installed the new AOP, but I get the same result I did with 1.2 beta3 -- it crashes to disk upon reload when I hit enter to end the very first turn after loading the next day. It was fine for the hour-plus I played the other night, but not now. I'm playing Open Mode.

RtW AOP2 was downloaded 10,000+ times in the first 48 hours!

That's a whoping 4 Terrabytes of data!

This takes all RtW downloads to over the 100K mark.

Thanks everyone. :)

Wierd, no one else has reported problems, and I can successfully reload old saves.

Oh damn you Dale, I've only just re-started a game with Germany last week with the old Add on Pack and now you release this.

Could you summerize what new features are in this version? I don't want to download and overwrite my current save.. I'm pretty far along too so I don't want that evil 'incompatible version' message.

Umm...... too many changes to list (or read that as I've forgotten). It's 6 months of changes. :D

Finish your current game, then start a new with AOP2.

What I don't understand is it seems to be specific to RTW, and did the same under beta3. I am currently doing a PBEM *not* using RTW on the same 3.13 install of CIV and that game is running fine.

Dale, I am getting errors loading some of my saved games. I occasionally get lucky and I'm able to load a game, but most of my saves give me a critical error when loading. I'm trying to figure out if it's something on my end or not. AOP1 worked flawlessly for me.

BTW - I love this mod. I just stumbled on it a few weeks ago and have been playing it whenever I get a chance. Keep up the good work!
