Operation Dark Skies JamesAleman(axis) vs Allweneedislove

  • TripleA

    i look forward to our game.

    normally we would bid for sides, but as we want to test operation dark skies with you being axis we will have to work somethign out.
    most bids fall in the range of 3ipc - 16ipc
    i have a good amount of experience with this game so you might want to keep my bid low.
    you can let me know what you think is fair to give the allies and that is what i will take.
    pick a bid from below and you can post your german turn.

    3ipc inf in new guinea
    4ipc inf in new guinea, 1ipc to uk
    5ipc inf in new guinea, 2ipc to uk
    6ipc sub in sz98
    7ipc sub in sz98, 1ipc to uk
    8ipc destroyer in sz106
    9ipc inf in new guinea, sub in sz98
    10ipc fighter in scotland
    11ipc inf in new guinea, destroyer in sz106

    let me know if you want to play with or without tech.
    if we are playing with tech, let me know if you want to play with or without tech tokens that anniversary had.


  • Test summary from TripleA, engine version: 1.6.1.4, time: 13:11:49


  • We’ll keep things simple and go with the 5 IPC bid. If I am right, the bid won’t matter if we go larger, but lets start small to keep as much egg off my face as possible in case a tornado in Europe takes out my bombers 😉


  • Ok, I used the bid engine in Triple A, seems to have worked, let me know if UK has the 2 dollars saved.

    I don’t care about tech, your call. But I will request tech as written in rules…meaning no saving tokens. I just don’t use technology but I am not opposed to my opponents spending their money on it. 😉 Besides if you get some you may force me to try for heavy bombers and long range with my bomber force…lol


  • Need scramble orders:

    z111: 2 bombers, 2 subs, Battleship
    z110: 2 subs, 4 fighters, 4 tacticals

    Here is a copy of the saved game, let me know if there is a standard way to resolve this as this is my first Triple A forum game.

    james it looks like you got almost everything right.
    you did the bids correctly and got our emails and game i.d.s correct.

    however you are using an old version of triplea. you need to download triplea 1.7.0.3 you can get it here
    http://triplea.sourceforge.net/mywiki

    when you get the new version i will scramble from scotland. i will also scramble just the french fighter from london.

    you also did not attack with the sub in sz117. i am not sure if that was part of your strategy, but thought i would mention it incase you forgot to move it.

    i am very open to edits, so if we forgot to make a noncombat move please feel free to edit if i have not  done my turn yet, and i hope you will mind if i do the same.


  • That was intentional in z117, I intend to move to z124 noncombat.

    Downloading new version


  • Also, I am casual with forgotten moves, feel free to edit as well, I want to win or lose by strategy not User interface errors or forgotten moves.


  • Test summary from TripleA, engine version: 1.7.0.3, time: 17:34:52


  • Not sure why it didn’t post the map, I got the dice emails, did you?

    I hit twice in z111 before retreating, I took off your destroyer, but you may choose another if you like.

    I hit twice in z111 before retreating, I took off your destroyer, but you may choose another if you like.

    with you attacking with 2 subs i think i would have kept the destroyer. should come in handy to take out your lingering subs.

    sounds good
