BTW I plan a truly massive update for this mod. I can't give any date yet (I've yet to finish at least two other revisions which I'm halfway, then Stalingrad is calling me...) it will take time for sure, I can assure it's massive (bibliography obtained since the days I did the original mod are about 120 books, articlpes, maps and internet sites)
That is seriously good news regarding a 'truly massive' update for this scenario. Can't wait to see it.
So you are working on 'two other revisions? I knew you were working on Budapest but what is the other one, if I can ask? And Stalingrad too! I will certainly look forward to that getting the 'Indragnir' treatment. Looks like you are going to be very busy for the foreseeable future.
In reality there were 3, but the third is about to finish in a matter of days so I didn't take it into account.
My list in order is:
Korea 85 (will release during the sale for sure. Main campaign with no chinese intervention. Pretty big changes, for example there were no North Korean Armored/Mechanized Corps by 1985)
Kharkov 43 with David 'Strela' Freer (the monster campaign: Gallop+Star)
Budapest 45 (Historical Konrad I, II, III, Komaróm tank battle and the Siege, awaiting for Nevenkin's massive book on the Siege)
After that I plan in no particular order:
-Stalingrad 42 (Historical Uranus, so much is missing from this battle)
-Sicily 43 (Historical Husky, italian OoB greatly updated, US military historians from those days downplayed italian performance and the narrative continued, battle data and more modern researchers have shown how failed was that part of the invasion)
-Updating my Yom Kippur 73 after the opening of classified information on israeli side (specialy Asher, Sakal, Rabinovich and the information I've collected thanks to a kind gentleman that translated from Hebrew the very own Fresh Forums)
-Kursk 43 (Historical Citadel, less work in this one, corrections et all but more balancing and putting in place some new ideas)
-Normandy 44 (Historical Overlord, massive update)
-Bulge 44 (Historical Wacht Am Rhein, much more detailed but giving game balance priority over historical details that, despite their historicity, could harm the balance or make the germans prone to game tactics like snipping or thining the line IMO)
-Tunisia 43 (Historical The End in Africa / Operation Vulcan. This one is one of my pet projects and may be the most innovative of all my 'treatments'. I can tell you the OoB is almost full rework. I found a german document dated just a month after the end that showed every single unit lost in this battle and those who survived before the end, also received great help from italian researchers in this one, the italian OoB is as much detailed as it can be. I've come up with some fixing for mountain battles even without the mountain troops. I own german army original maps with very high resolution (about 250mb per map) that shows not only units but terrain [that need to be modified since relevant mountains and some key locations are missing].
I would like having the Limited VP on the build so that's the main reason not to finish it.)
Also I'm updating Anzio and Korsun after more playtesting and research (specialy from Mike Avanzini)
