Hello, and welcome to another update on the Arsenal of Democracy mod, 1964. Today, I will not be introducing alot of new material, but more or less encompassing some of the work done.
Regretfully, we have scrapped the Australia 1959 scenario. Despite completing the OOB (Order of Battle - aka starting armies) and and scenario files, I found that isolating the Australia campaign was not very high on the 'fun' factor. The lack of provinces and strategy involved in the scenario proved to be quite boring, especially against the AI. With a front that covers 4 provinces at its peak, there is little creativity involved.
This was not a total loss, however, as I learned alot about the creation of scenario files and was able to progress onto something more important: Working on the Grand Campaign map, the 1964 Scenario. I have finished the country files for some of the major countries, as well as some minor ones. Currently, Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom, the United Netherlands, and Hungary have fully completed country files (basically, the national/owned/occupied provinces) and their respective OOBs. Of course, when I say 'I', I mean I compiled the information that the rest of the team has helped get, and put it into usable code. (for progress, see Image 1 located below)
Next on this list is my work on the Mechanized Brigade. I now have a fully functional Mechanized Brigade attachment that works perfectly. Basically, the mechanized brigade will allow you to attach mechanized vehicles to any infantry division that does not currently have a brigade. To make this fair, it will bring fuel and supply costs to parity of that of a mechanized brigade of the same time frame (Basically, a 1964 infantry division w/ a mechanized brigade will have the same stats as a 1964 mechanized division)
