this is a sequel to the Gizmotron user-mod for Axis and Allies. there will be new types of weather, more territory maps in skirmish mod, (larger maps in skirmish mode as well). new experience ranks and bonuses (regiments keep getting bonuses up to 2000 exp points). nearly 100 special ops, new water-based units like cruisers and submarines (with torpedo attacks). nations to be included are Australia, Bulgaria, Canada, Communist China, Croatia, Czechoslovakia, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Nationalist China, Netherlands, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and the United States. more nations available for WW2 mode, see images for details. tentative Alpha-test release date is March 2014, the final version will hopefully be done by November 2014
to say again, this is not a finished mod. the WW2 map has been dramatically changed and will definitely have bugs and be prone to crashing. dozens of new territories have been added into the Metagame. I've also found a way to integrate a lot of minor countries by using generic 'star' generals. This way Yugoslavia, Sweden, Spain, Philippines, and Greece can be included in WW2 without having them controlled by a major Axis or Allied nation. all of the minor nations default in their allegiance to the Allies for the time being. In later versions of the game I will investigate the possibility of making them a third, 'neutral' team. but I'd like to change the AI first so that they don't take aggressive action against their neighbors first.
I've added Belgian defensive armies to the Netherlands faction in WW2.
I know that there are some missing skins for Finland and the Netherlands. since those two factions were donated to us by Cpt. Kramer I've been making adjustments to integrate them more readily with our new work. (he kept most of his skins in a completely separate folder and I would rather bring them in line with our coding practices than try to make the installation process even more complicated than it already is.
eventually, players should expect a completely revised US Marines. I plan on making them more like the German Infantry and Panzergrenadier divisions. having US players capable of spamming flame tanks from the get-go seemed like too much of an advantage.
we still have a lot of changes to make... and nothing has been done about the SP campaigns at this time.
I'm in the middle of cleaning up excess files and converting it into a download.
I'm expecting to have it ready by the end of this upcoming week.
