    This sounds all very interesting. Currently I´ve a scenario in mind playing during the Napoleonic Wars. I would like to use this map:

    Map for Napoleonic Wars

    but I´m not sure how it looks like in game. If I can use about 31 Nations and about 2000 units I could create a scenario which covers all Europe. Also here is a huge amount of units available you made some times ago which I can use.

    Would be very great if you could help me understanding how the game and especially the scenario creation works together. :)

    OK c2u - why dont we start a new thread if you want to pursue this and I can talk you through each stage of scenario creation. Dont worry about unit icons - it may come as a huge shock but I already made a set of Napoleonics years ago for PeG which I can put in the OG dat file ;)

    One thing you should appreciate - Panzer General 2 was played as a 'campaign' which was a series of connected battles (scenarios). Your result in each battle effected the next, and your core units were persistent and moved from battle to battle gaining experience and abilities, almost like an rpg I guess. You could make a single scenario representing the whole Napoleonic war but it would be more fun as a series of battles (which has already been done for PeG btw). The 31 nations limit applies to an individual rule set (e-file) and could be used to the fullest extent in a campaign. However for a single scenario / battle you are restricted to two sides, one playable and the other AI. Each side may have units from 5 different nations.

    Completely off at a tangent but I've just seen this map http://www.gilestiel.eu/~pg2og/mapfinder/images/real/1189.jpg for a Pacific scenario. Isn't that purty? :)
    In fact there are a whole load of maps in the same style for the Pacific. Almost makes me wanna play one of the OG Pacific campaigns and draw some Japanese aircraft for Tech. Almost.... :lol:

    You are the best ... more wonderful units.
    Fairline, I had used some of your new units of the Civil War to modify the scenario Madrid... , but there are not many scenarios for many incredible units...
    Tanelorn, your magnificent Greek units needed a scenario, and I have adapted w21 to TOT: had started adding units, but only you can complete it and make suggestions for improvement.
    Thanks for your art.
    Saludos

    Wonderful! Added to the unit file. I think there are only three aircraft left that I'm missing. The Fokker G.I the Heinkel He70 and the beautiful He112, which kind of reminds me of the Spitfire a little, unless I they are out there already and I have missed them!

    Hi Fairline,

    Are there units that cover the Vietnam War? I've been working on my next project for a while now and though I've managed to gather a significant number of units off the different Civilization forums there are gaps in my unit wish list.

    If you or any other artist happen to have a collection of units that cover that particular period please don't hesitate to share them with me as I would be immensely grateful.

    Thank you.

    Hi Fairline,

    I will open a development thread in the next couple of weeks and post the units template I have to date and the units on my wish list. I will certainly appreciate any help you can provide.

    Thanks again.
