You, sir, are a genius! Your missions have made my favorite game have a much longer life.

I played what I'm guessing was an older version called "sirhinkel's mods" and thought that was great. This co-op 1.3 version is also fantastic. There is quite a leap in difficulty though. I've played both on different difficulty and these new map are much much harder even on easy. Perhaps a little too hard for my taste.

I don't like to to just walk over a map but the balance with the older maps was more to my taste. With these maps I keep getting slaughtered by superior weapons and find the only way to defeat the enemy is with a single strong defence line behind cover and infantry dashes up the sides to capture points. All very scrappy and doesn't give me the freedom to use different strategies, like the older maps did.

And, yes, I'm using the strategy of not capturing complete defensive lines until the end.

I wonder if making the difficulty level range greater would help to give a little more fun back for me? By this I mean that easy was something on par with the easy level of the old maps. This would give me a chance to work out a good strategy before tackling a map on a higher difficulty level.

Hey,

I know that some people are not happy about how hard the missions are. But there are also people who think that the missions are still to easy...

Anyway, I'm currently trying to changed some things but every time I change e.g. the costs or delays I have the feeling that the missions become way to easy.

I would like to voice a very tiny complaint, that could be related to my lack of skill, but I personally feel there are maybe too many AT guns on some maps. Like, tanks (and again this may just be my lack of skill) are basically only helpful as defenses. It's usually the maps where you play as Russians and the maps where you play against the Americans.

Maybe a pacific campaign once you are finished with GSM campaign? Would be really nice because I've only seen one mod (300 Miles to Tokyo) that is in the pacific and it is waaaaaaaaaay too hard. I would love if you made some because your missions are the best. :D

Ich liebe deine Mod einfach, ich zocke sie schon seid Monaten und bin nach jedem Update begeistert und schätze deine harte Arbeit sehr! Vorallem mit den Defense Missionen haste mich glücklich gemacht. Ich kann gar keine Vanilla Skirmish mehr zocken, da deine Einheitenauswahl einfach bombe ist. Mach bitte bitte weiter damit! Ohne dich würde ich Mowas wohlmöglich gar nicht mehr spielen :D

Please fix the artillery having pin-point accuracy and permanent vision of infantry units. It's driving me nuts that I can sneak within 10 feet of infantry in trenches with my Saboteur, but the sfh18 on the hill 300 meters away starts firing the milisecond I come within range, and is accurate well within 10 yards on nearly every shot, which is impossible if you, the player, are the one firing. Also, everything is far too expensive, the way the mod is set up, you pretty much pick infantry or vehicles, you can barely do both, and most of the time infantry is your best option since tanks get wiped out in no time if used offensively, leading them to only be cost effective as a defensive option, and that's barely, with how expensive they are plus the income(not sure how much you cut it by, but it takes upwards of 10 minutes to get 1000 MP on 7 bases). Your income is abysmal compared to the standard skirmishes, while your unit options are vastly expanded and enemy resistance is VASTLY increased(I've beat all the regular skirmishes on normal by myself and I tried these, I did Ardennes first, decided to play on easy since normal feels like heroic, super pershings everywhere, giving me nightmares, I did win though). I love the fact that your mod allows many more choices unit-wise, however actually utilizing that arsenal is very difficult unless you want to wait 3 hours to build up your forces.

So anyway those are my gripes, but I like the mod a lot, just wish these things were fixed/tweaked. The choices you are given unit-wise is great, enemy defenses are much stronger, enemy reinforcements are actually a threat, etc.

Just some short facts:

- Maximum Artillery range is 250 not 300 Meters.
- The arty accuracy has not been changed.(All values are like in vanilla)
- The MP income is completely the same as in vanilla skirmishes + you get more income for capturing a whole row of flags.

If I would delete the Artillery-Script it would make AI artillery useless. It wouldn't fire on the player units until even a players mortar could take the heavy arty out.

I don't like the fact that the arty now starts firing directly after you walked into a certain area too. But there is no option in-between. Either you have not firing arty or arty thats fires right when you reached a certain area.

So do we know why the arty fires on infantry immediately even without proper vision? Is that just part of the artillery scripting put in place by the developers? I have been able to sneak infantry around in the vanilla skirmishes without being instantly nailed by deadly accurate artillery.

I know adding a third row of flags to get the same income you can get in vanilla skirmishes would be a bit of a hassle, so I won't suggest that. I would however suggest lowering the prices of units to something more reasonable considering the lack of a third line of defense and flags. Prices have been increased in some areas by as much as 3 times. As an example, why buy a bazooka squad when the 200mp infantry comes with one of them, with less skill, but still, you get 10 men, 1 of them with a bazooka, a machine gun, riflemen with sandbags, smgs with AT grenades, for less or equal, depending on nation, the cost of a bazooka team of two guys, one with a rocket and the other with an smg. It would be nice if the unit pricing was put in line with the lack of income from a third row of flags.

On another note, the cooldown timers for calling in more units are a tad long. While I don't mind this as much for the vehicles, as it promotes buying a more varied army instead of 20 king tigers, 2 to 6 minutes can feel like an eternity when you're low on men and playing on a harder difficulty, or when you are simply just trying to hold and stabilize your line so you can build up forces.

I really really like all the choices I have in units, thats probably the biggest positive about this mod for me. The maps are different and great, and not all completely streamlined for a one-direction assault like vanilla maps. I honestly just want to be able to use more of those fantastic unit choices in a shorter amount of time.

The artillery script is not implemented in the vanilla skirmishes. I've put it in because I don't like how easy it is to kill the enemy arty because it is never using its full range.

The cooldown times will stay as they are. Like you said I don't want the player to be able to buy 5 king tigers in 10 minutes. In my opinion it should feel like a real loss when you lose one heavy tank and thats only possible if they're really expensive and have a long cooldown time.
