• After using this link:  http://www.harrisgamedesign.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=6834

    I managed to copy down Oztea’s Global 1941 set-up onto an abattlemap saved file.

    Let me know if there were any errors in the copying.  Enjoy!

  • This has my endorsement!
    However….I cant get Abattlemap to work
    I uninstalled it in frustration last time I tried to get it working
    Do I need a Global Map file to import first or something?
    The file provided shows up empty. There is nothing there, no map, no units, no values… :?


  • i know it involves unzipping some things.  Did u ask around in the abattlemap threads?


  • hey oztea, i have a question about the set up. does sea zone 92 get a destroyer? if not, i seems like easy pray for the axis. (SZ 92 - 1 Carrier, 1 Tactical Bomber. is whats on the current set up). thanks. btw, i love your set up. it totally kicks ass

    I don’t know man…  you can save the bismark everytime with this setup.


  • Yes Poloplayer, that Carrier is alone and by itself. It represents the most promient UK atlantic carrier, the HMS Ark Royal, which was sunk in that area by German subs while escorting a convoy.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Ark_Royal_(91)

    The German player can seal its fate by attacking with two subs, but that makes other attacks more difficult by removing the possiblity of using those subs elsewhere.
    The German player wouldnt want to use air power to attack the Ark Royal because then the Tactical Bomber would be able to participate in the battle, unless they want to kill that.
    –------------------------------------------------
    Gargantua, you have to define “save”.
    I mean, of course the Bismark has a chance of getting away, and even causing some damage by killing the transport by Iceland. But its still dead in the water.
    Unless you really want to SAVE it and break through the UK fleet at 109 without the Bismark, then noncombat move to 110, and build an airbase and boats there to protect it.
    If Germany really wants to invest that much in saving one damaged battleship, they can. In reality the Bismark could have disengaged earlier and maybe made it back to France.
    The German player can afford to do a lot of things. Put up a fight in the Atlantic, help Italy in Africa, put the screws to Russia, bomb the hell out of England.
    But there is one thing they can’t do…Sea Lion. Because that ends the game on a sour note usually

    • If it works, the Allied player(s) want to surrender
    • If it fails the German player wants to surrender
      Either way Sealion in the Alpha setups is a fools mate. To pull it off it needs 100% of the IPCs and attention of Germany and eliminates 100% of the UKs ability to make war.
      Because the game condenses down to just those two powers…all the other moves for the other powers (USA, Japan, etc.) feels like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.
      The game is one or lost in England. in 1940
      I really wish Canada continued to fight if London fell. Larry should really look into that to stop all this Sea Lion 100% buisness.

    I have introduced in my WAW rules a little rules.
    German player can hide 1 warship in Norway for 1 turn. (Of course, german player must control norway).

    • Many kriegmarine warships found a fjord in norway.

    German player can hide 1 u-boat per turn in spain.

    • At the beginning of the war, secret agreement has been signed between spain and germany to supply u-boat.

    About London, Yes canada shoud continue to fight but If london and Moscow Falls. Adios allies…the game is over…

    Yo crusa, I don’t have those rules about Germany hiding ships.


  • Yo crusa, I don’t have those rules about Germany hiding ships.

    LOL…I’m waiting for this reply!!!
    U-Boat rules = Old rules, I forget to put it on english version.
    For the warship. Take a look at WAW Port Rules. Chapter I or II.
