this is a sequel to the Gizmotron user-mod for Axis and Allies. featuring new types of weather & terrain. new biomes allow players to mix and match arctic, boreal, and other terrains on the same map in was never possible before.
new, larger territory maps in skirmish mode. new experience ranks and bonuses (regiments improve up to 2000 exp points). 100+ special ops, new water-based units like cruisers and submarines (with torpedo attacks). nations included are Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Communist China, Croatia, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, India (Allied), Indian National Army (Axis), Iran, Iraq, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Mongolia, Nationalist China, Netherlands, Netherlands KNIL, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovak Republic (Axis), South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, Turkey, the United States, Viet Minh, Yugsolavia, and the Yugoslav Partisans
more nations and territories available for WW2 mode, see images for details.
new descriptions for rate of fire (recharge time in seconds), travel speed (numbers are used instead of generic descriptions) allow players to more accurately compare in-game performance of units. machine-guns and sub-machine-guns now affect multiple targets based on historical rate of fire (but have lower damage output compared to rifles). attack values for anti-tank weapons and tank cannons are based on historical penetration data at 500 yards.
new artillery and anti-tank gun units have been added to make sure that infantry is still competitive at later stages of the game. infantry machine guns are capable of engaging enemy aircraft and can be used to defend your base while armored and mechanized forces are on the attack.
artillery attack values based on historic shell weights (with an attack bonus against infantry based on shell diameter in millimeters). artillery attack range based on historical maximum range.
new interceptor airfields allow players to use fighters to attack enemy bombers before they can strike friendly buildings. major nations will have multiple types of aircraft and airfields to choose from. certain nations now have the option of recruiting supply drops from airfields instead of using experience points. additionally some nations will have access to unique airborne weapons like atomic bombs, chemical weapons, and napalm from airfields deployed from Aviation HQ Divisions) aircraft speeds have been increased so that infantry can run in circles to avoid bombers. some nations have the ability to deploy airborne supply drops from airfields.
most nations (but not all) will have artillery bunkers which can be packed up, moved, and unpacked at least once. (more than once causes the game to crash. still don't know why). a much more aggressive AI is featured. the World War 2 map now features 16 different sides (9 Allied, 6 Axis, 1 Neutral).
new stand-alone arrangements of historical music has been added. new songs included for China, Poland, Italy, Belgium, Greece, Norway, and Sweden. these can be played through the map editor by the use of triggers. (haven't figured out how to get the new faction music to loop back on itself. so the new nations use the original theme music for now)
so I'm STILL ironing out details on the unit restrictions for the original SP campaign maps. I think I'm about halfway done. I've been updating the generals as I move along to make them more historically interesting/accurate. I'm about halfway done with a brand new Polish SP campaign. once the map-making is done I'll add a German and Russian version of the appropriate missions. I will be including a number of major and minor battles that lead up to the conquest of Poland. but some of the maps are large enough, and complex enough, where I will be recycling them. so the same map that I created for the Battle of Warsaw in 1939 will later get used for an 'Operation Heads' map were Polish partisans attempt to assassinate heavily guarded German officers while avoiding direct conflict with German regiments. this map will also get used for the Warsaw Uprising. I might also use it for some Polish anti-Soviet partisan activities if I can come up with enough information.
I probably could have uploaded something - but the end result doesn't feel different enough from what I posted last spring to justify it. I'm still trying to find ways to make the AI more effective, have got some missing unit icons and such I'd like to fix. additionally, I haven't solved the music glitch of things not repeating. so I might just make all of the faction music based on the original five factions and then make a separate patch for the new music.
