Global War 1940/41


  • Moderator

    I am Pleased to Announce that I am all done with this project.  There are still a few spelling errors on the setup charts, But I think you guys can figure it out.

    The long wait will be worth it.

    Pictures can be found on pages 7-8 in this thread

    This is a Rather large File and I blew the map up to around 6.5’ x 3.75’  I t small enough to fit on a standard sheet of Plywood and still have some room around the edges for all the “stuff” needed to play.

    you got ItaLY twice and no Germany.

    also, can you get rid of all those wavy lines. I just need 2-3 after the coastline, rather than 25 😞


  • Moderator

    Fixed That.

    Germany now there

    I am going to go and Shrink this map so I can Upload it for you Folks, Later Today

    @Imperious:

    also, can you get rid of all those wavy lines. I just need 2-3 after the coastline, rather than 25 😞

    I can’t.  Those wavy Lines are embedded into the graphix by psitronica.

    I kinda like em 🙂


  • Moderator

    Done,

    Map is now a DL option from Media Fire along with the correct country cards

    Please enjoy

    Death



  • Are the rules documented for this version?


  • Moderator

    I had posted the rules we use when we playtested this. But I figured folks would just complain about it. so I removed them.

    I will certainly post them if people want them.

    Also I posted the wrong American and Nuetral Setup charts.

    I will put those up later this week



  • Please do post the rules.  Its difficult for me to play without them  😄

    Craig



  • Having the map printed this week and looking forward to playing this version.

    I know the game is officially finished… :-D…but…any thoughts given to adding Cruisers to this game?

    If added, what would you recommend as starting set up for each nation?

    Based on your playtesting of this version, I’m curious on how you would balance the addition of this unit.

    Appreciate your feedback (and all your efforts to launch this game!)


  • 2017 2016 2015 Organizer '14 Customizer '13 '12 '11 '10

    I think we need to add Khaki to the game and of course a proper color for Germany other than BLUE, because my pieces are colored grey and id like to have a match.

    I could use German pieces for the Grey territories but of course in this game England sadly is Grey.


  • Moderator

    I think u are confused IMp

    Uk is not grey

    Monroe

    The us set up chart is not supposed to have IC on Hawaii.


  • Moderator

    Added a brief Suggested ruleset to use



  • Please, can you add the rules? Thank you…


  • Moderator

    I did, they are in 2nd post



  • Received printed map today and it looks great!  Excited to play.

    My bad, but I can’t locate the posted rules…is there a link in one of your posts?

    Also, what are your thoughts on adding the Cruiser unit (country setup for this unit)?


  • Moderator

    Yeah Posted the Basic rules we used while Playtesting.  I believe they are in the 2nd post in this thread.

    As far as techs and stuff and can give you a suggested tree complete with National advantages.  Basically Use a Revised ruleset, with the Mods mentioned earlier in thread.

    How big did you print it?

    And How much was it?

    Glad you like it. I love mine



  • Maybe the best A&A map I have seen so far, since I love A&A Europe and Pacific, and the convoy zones and ports.

    But again we have this Norwegian issue. You made Norway one territory, but Italy mainland 3 territories. Norway too should be cut into 3 territories, because in 1939 there were no railroads or highways and it took a long time to travel from sout Norway to north Norway.

    Also in 1939 Norway was not adjacent to Russia. Finland had the Petsamo with its worlds largest nickel mine at Kolosjoki, and this was the reason Germany occupied north Finland and startet the Litza-front. Both the nickel from Kolosjoki and the iron ore from Kiruna was shipped on convoy zones that are missing in your map, maybe because UK blocked this trade-route in the real world ? But this game is a What-if ? game, and if UK had not blocked this convoy route, then Germany would get great income and maybe win the war. Hitler said that the Northern Front was decesive, but not in any A&A game I have see.


  • Moderator

    I Tried to add a convoy zone to the Baltic Sea, there was just No room for it.

    The european Portion of the map with the exception of the Berlin Space is straight from the AAE version of the game.

    This was a Major area that Germany did get its resources from, and I tried to represent those Convoy’s with a Beefed Up Baltic Fleet.  Large enough at first that UK can’t just Simply Kill it first turn like revised.


  • Moderator

    Cruisers, Yes I have toyed with the IDea.

    I would make Destroyers cost 8, 2 att, 2 def., 2 move,
    Cruisers cost is 12 they are a 3,3,2.

    as for with set up, I would just simply make cruisers a Buy Option for each country.

    The set up charts are a Pain in the Ass to Add new units or territories too.  I learned this adding Brazil as a Neutral



  • @Deaths:

    I Tried to add a convoy zone to the Baltic Sea, there was just No room for it.

    Lol, the convoys was not in the Baltic Sea. The resources was convoyed from ports in Northern Norwegian coast, in what is seazones 3 and 4 in Revised map. I dont know what number your map got on this, because I cant get it large enough to see.


  • Moderator

    what do you mean, can’t get it large enough to see?

    Did u Down load it?

    I gave a Anchor to Norway, that was not originally there. Hope that helps.  🙂



  • The version of your map that I downloaded was a 2mb jpg.  I had a friend who runs a graphics company color correct and print it @ 67"x32".  It’s printed in a thin, flexible matte plastic which allows for easy rolling for transport.  Overall, the resolution and detail are very good for play use.

    I also found a 21mb jpg of Postronica’s original (semi-updated) version and printed that at the same size/style.  Again, resolution is fine for play use.  [Surprisingly, the print quality of the 2mb and 21mb file are not that much different; could be my friend did some grpahics magic before theprint run  :-D]

    But your version of the map (which features many edits from previous posts) will be my “go to” map.

    Regarding the Cruisers - I was thinking similar modification of destroyer stats to work in the cruiser.  I hear you on the editing thing for set up charts - not eay to do…  I may take a stab at suggesting some set up ideas and drop in a post (need to use all those table tactics units :lol:).

    Hoping to get my A&A crew together in the next few weeks to play.  I’ll give some feedback after the session.

    Again - thanks for the efforts!
