Size Modifiers

Ancient Wars

The scenario size modifier is determined by a formula based on total Army Points for both sides, and the number of turns in the scenario which yields the SMF (size modifier factor). This factor is then referenced to a table for scenario sizes.

(Total Army Points * Number of Turns) /100 = Size Modifier Factor

A table of Size Modifier Factors is used to determine the final Size Modifier for the Ancient Wars ladder.

 
Size Modifier Factor Size Modifier (SM)
0-999 1
1000-2499 2
2500-3999 3
4000-5499 4
5500-6999 5
7000-8499 6
8500-9999 7
10000-11499 8
11500-12999 9
13000+ 10


Black Powder

The Size Modifier is based on the total number of turns in the scenario
 
# of Turns Size Modifier (SM)
1-19 1
20-29 2
30-39 3
40-49 4
50-59 5
60-69 6
70-119 7
120-169 8
170-219 9
220+ 10


Campaign Series

Note: Determining Size Modifiers uses the following formula:

Turns * Complexity = Modified Complexity

Use this table to determine Size Modifier.

 
Modified Complexity Size Modifier (SM)
1 - 59 1
60 - 94 2
95 - 134 3
135 - 179 4
180 - 229 5
230 - 284 6
285 - 344 7
345 - 409 8
410 - 479 9
480+ 10
 
Turns and Complexity are given within each scenario in the Campaign Series. It is highly recommended that you have all the necessary data available before you Add a Scenario to the Scenario Dbase.


Combat Mission

The scenario modifier is based on the sum of the total unit points for BOTH sides in the scenario

 
Unit Points (total) Size Modifier (SM)
0-999 1
1000-2499 2
2500-3999 3
4000-5499 4
5500-6999 5
7000-8499 6
8500-9999 7
10000-11499 8
11500-12999 9
13000+ 10


Combat Mission x2

The scenario modifier is based on the combination of the Battle Size param. and length of the battle

 
Battle Size/Length of Battle
Size/Length Less than 30 minutes 30-44 minutes 45-59 minutes 1 hour-1hour,29 minutes More than 1 hour,30 minutes
Tiny 1 2 3 3 4
Small 2 3 3 4 5
Medium 4 5 6 6 7
Large 6 7 7 8 9
Huge 8 8 9 10 10


Combat Mission x2 - Modern

The scenario modifier is based on the combination of the Battle Size param. and length of the battle

 
Battle Size/Length of Battle
Size/Length Less than 30 minutes 30-44 minutes 45-59 minutes 1 hour-1hour,29 minutes More than 1 hour,30 minutes
Tiny 1 2 3 3 4
Small 2 3 3 4 5
Medium 4 5 6 6 7
Large 6 7 7 8 9
Huge 8 8 9 10 10


Grigsby Ops

The Size Modifier is based on the total number of turns in the scenario
 
# of Turns Size Modifier (SM)
1-9 1
10-19 2
20-40 3
41-92 4
93-116 5
117-144 6
145-170 7
171-196 8
197+ 9

Add 1 point to the SM value for a scenario using the full rather than a partial map. 

 


Naval Warfare

For HPS titles the size modifier is calculated by adding together all of the ships and planes represented in the scenario to the scenario total time (in minutes), the sum arrived at is then compared to the table below

 
Total of Units+Time Size Modifier (SM)
1-125 1
126-250 2
251-375 3
376-500 4
501-625 5
626-750 6
751-875 7
876-1000 8
1001-1125 9
1126+ 10


Operational Art of War

To determine the Modified Complexity, take the scenario file size in k's, times the number of moves; and then divide by 100.
This is the "modified complexity".
You then apply this complexity number to the chart, to derive the SM

The formula for calculating a scenario Size Modifier is provided in the table below:
 
Complexity Size Modifier (SM)
1-25 1
26-50 2
51-75 3
76-100 4
101-150 5
151-200 6
201-250 7
251-300 8
301-350 9
350+ 10


Panzer Battles

To calculate the Size Modifier for a Panzer Battles scenario, add the victory points from the strength dialogue for both sides in the scenario and find the row that it matches in the left column, then find the value in that row for the number of turns in the scenario.

Squad Battles

In "Proud and the Few" the SM is determined from given scenario size:

 
Size of scenario Size Modifier (SM)
Small 2
Medium 3
Large 4
Huge 5
 

For the rest of Squad Battles games use the table below:
 

Size of combined OOB and scenario file Size Modifier (SM)
0-18 KB 2
19-26 KB 3
27-50 KB 4
51+ KB 5


Steel Panthers

The size modifier for SP scenarios is based solely on the type of battle

 
Type of battle Size Modifier (SM)
Assault or Advance 2
Other 1


Tiller Operational Campaigns

Scenario modifiers for all scenarios depend on scenario's number of turns and size. This point value is multiplied by a SM drawn from the following scale:

 
  Size of the scenario in KBs
Turns 1 - 10 11 - 23 24 - 45 46 - 90 Over 90
1 to 20 1 2 3 3 3
21 to 50 2 3 4 4 4
51 to 100 3 4 5 6 6
101 to 200 4 5 6 7 8
201 to 300 5 6 7 8 9
Over 300 6 7 8 9 10
