READ THE MANUAL AND README.TXT BEFORE PLAYING

A NOTE FOR BEGINNERS:
The AI is challenging, depending also on the map. The easiest map so far is Country Roads. If you are a beginner set the easy game difficulty in the option menu, otherwise you might find the game frustrating. You can increase the difficulty setting later, when you have learned the game mechanisms.

INSTALLATION:
Unzip the file in the Mods folder of Men of War. If it does not exist, create it and then unzip the mod there. Start Men of War, go to Option, then go to the MOD tab. There look for the mod in the left list, select it and use the arrow to move to the right list. Press Apply.

KNOWN ISSUES:

The reinforcements menu might cross the display boundaries sometimes, especially when you are using a 16:10 monitor. There is not much I can do because the reinforcement menu is hardcoded, so I can't change it. I've tried to add more reinforcement categories, so It shouldn't be a great problem now. I'm sorry but apparently making a slider for menus and windows was too hard for DMS 

MOD GOALS:
Men of War is probably the best ww2 strategy game on the market, but it lacks most of all one thing: a skirmish mode where you can have huge battles against an AI player. It is a shame that you have so many units available that you can rarely use in the campaigns.
Battlefield mode is a unique skirmish mode, more advanced than those you can find in Assault Squad, whose objectives are the following:
•    Create a challenging single player skirmish with a great variety of battles.
•    Build a sandbox to allow inexperienced players to set up their own scenario quickly given a prebuilt map.

BATTLEFIELD MODE IN DETAILS:
Battlefield mode is a skirmish mode based on map point controls. Unlike multiplayer games, control points provide resources to buy reinforcements. Each control point grants you command points, used to buy reinforcements, and tech points. Tech points are needed in order to unlock more advanced units. Every minute you receive a new amount of command and tech points based on the control points you own.
Besides each nation can use a set of Support Commands which unlock Support Operations. Support Operations are special abilities like airstrikes or special unit reinforcements which can be unlocked by support points. Some control points provide you with these support points.

CURRENT PROGRESS:
The mod now includes several Battlefield scenarios and 5 playable factions (Germany, USA, Commonwealth, Japanese Empire and Soviet Union). Besides I have completely reworked gun stats to make them more realistic (based on penetration tables from www.tarrif.net) and added new units (some taken from other mods, see the credits in readme.txt).

FUTURE GOALS:
•    Include Soviet Union and Axis allied nations as playable factions in the Battlefield mode.
•    Convert the mod for Assault Squad.
•    Make some tutorial missions for the Battlefield mode.
•    Write a tutorial explaining how to set up your custom battlefield scenarios.
•    Create a campaign for each of the nations.

During a test I decided to record a video showing the new AI in action. The map is "Contry Roads", I am playing with Germany using the Infantry Support Command, while the Russian AI is using the Urban Warfare Support Command with the "Hard" difficulty setting. The video does not contain the whole game because it was too long, but it should give you an idea of how the new AI behaves.

I couldn't upload it directly into the video section here on moddb because the video is too large, and youtube URL does not seem to work in the upload section. You can find the video below. Meanwhile I'll keep trying to upload it from youtube URL.

Hi,
i have installed your mod and played yesterday 'bazerville'. I made a savegame and today I wanted to continue the map. But every time I try to load the savegame I get a error message. I can't post a screenshot, beaucse I am new and it's something about avoiding spambots. Error message is about trigger ai/ger/buy_infantry
You have any idea? A known problem with savegames?

Savegame crashes are not my fault, they are game engine bugs. Do you have the latest version of men of war (1.17.5.1)?

Personally nor I've had any problem with savegames neither I've received this kind of bug report.

Hi,
I have the steam version of Men of War so it's the latest version.
Guess I have to play the mission from the beginning again.

Yeah, this is very strange, I tried yesterday to load a savegame of battlefield and it works perfectly. Maybe the file was corrupted.

I will do the conversion for AS, but first I will complete the battlefield mode for Men of War, because it is a pain in the *** to mantain two different beta versions, because when you find a bug you have to double fix it. So when I release all the 6 factions for the battlefield mode I will start to convert the mod for Assault Squad, which means approximatively 5-6 months, depending on my real life commitment (examinations and degree project mainly).

I suspect I do not understand a thing or two in playing this mod. I can not find a campaign option. I can not find a map option in battlefield; though I assume the maps are sequential.

I've set the game on easy, as advised, and play as the U.S. vs Germany. I understand the idea of taking the middle ground for the points and how the point system works. The trouble is that by the time I recruit 1 unit, the enemy is beginning to assault across the entire front. If, as you say, the ai produces at a slightly lower level than the human in easy mode, how is it that the enemy can move across the whole map in the same time it takes me to put 1 lousy infantry unit on the map? Is it possible to recruit multiple units to prevent being overrun before I can begin to move out of my base?

Because it splits squads so it can reach more points, do the same. Anyway I will rework the AI in the next version because I've done maths and It gets more units than it should, so easy will be even easier :). But remember that the AI can't, for example, use sandbags kits and has a worse micro management than you.

I will start working on the campaign after the battlefield mode is complete with all the 6 factions I'm planning to release, so for now there is no campaign.

The next map in the battlefield mode is unlocked after you win in each of them (there is no way to unlock them since the beginning).

Unique and much needed, in my opinion, mod, that provides the opportunity for a good old random "multiplayer-style" (unscripted, unlike any scenario, that come in a sackful) comp-stomp on a great variety of maps, which was long missing for so many Men of War players.
