  • @Lord-Bevan I have posted Great War-Ultimate at www.rogercooper.com/GreatWar-Ultimate.zip



  • Scenario Ultimate Pants WW2v3
    Description World War 2 on a large map with many nations
    Download Repository/Experimental/Ultimate World Variants

    Good Points

    • Many nations create many options

    Bad Points

    • A lot of nations and units to keep track of.

    The AI should be set to Fast, to avoid slow AI turns.



  • Scenario Apocalypse 2012
    Description World War in 2012 on a large map
    Download Download

    Good Points

    • Interesting hypothetical situation
    • New unit types to reflect modern warfare
    • Force strengths and economic values based upon reality

    Bad Points

    • No victory conditions
    • Slow, even with fast AI due to large number of units
    • Neutrals are impassable even though they have been assigned forces. This blocks NATO and Russia from fighting.

    I will make a fix on this scenario.


  • Moderators

    @RogerCooper You could add to the negative points that the map drawing (clearly a modification of Domination) has some borders giving a pre-WW1, rather than 2012, flavour; for example the border between Libya and Algeria.



  • @RogerCooper
    The SZ between 72 and 159 is not drawn properly.
    Also if there are too many units, the display gets pushed into another SZ.



  • @Lord-Bevan When I am fixing other people's scenarios, I take a minimalist approach and don't generally fix the actual map. I just adjust the xml and add in missing images. Feel free to create your own version of the scenario



  • Scenario Domination 1914 No Man's Land
    Description World War 1 on a large scale world map
    Download Download

    Good Points

    • Conflict in many places

    Bad Points

    • No victory conditions
    • AI plays Americans poorly, building large numbers of useless fighters.


  • **Scenario ** Six Army 3 Alliance
    Description Fictional 3 way struggle on the Revised map
    Download Link

    Good Points

    • Fast-playing game with an interesting 3 way conflict

    Bad Points

    • The AI does not handle the initial bid well, building too many aircraft


  • Scenario Classic-Gold
    Description A particular set of optional rules for the Classic edition of A&A
    Download link

    Good Points

    • Fast-playing

    Bad Points

    • A bit on the simple side compared to the later editions


  • Scenario Revised with Cavalry
    Description The revised edition with cavalry added
    Download link

    Good Points

    • Fast-playing implementation of board game

    Bad Points

    • The cavalry unit isn't worth buying


  • Scenario Rome Total War
    Description Another version of the 270BC map
    Download Repository/Experimental/Rome Total War

    ** Good Points

    • Nice unit art
    • Historically-inspired situation

    ** Bad Points

    • Tough scenario for Romans
    • TripleA not a good fit for ancient warfare

  • Moderators

    Bad Points

    • The cavalry unit isn't worth buying

    Are you sure that is a bad point? Assuming that is true (never played any Revised), maybe it was just intended as to represent it as obsolete, since many believe that cavalry was not anymore something worth investing money on during WW2 (I'm not saying that is what I believe too; just saying it may be intended).

    Cavalry being not worth it is realistic, but what was the point of creating a scenario with an added unit that no one will buy. This scenario is included for completeness only.



  • Scenario Pacific 1942
    Description The Pacific war after the initial Japanese Conquests using the AAP map and rules
    Link Wiki

    Good Points

    • Fast-playing historical game

    Bad Points

    • Transports only move at 1, slowing the game
    • With slow transports, it is hard to prevent a Japanese victory

    Link link

    Good Points

    • Well-balanced

  • Scenario Camp David-1956
    Description The Suez Crisis of 1956
    Link link

    Good Points

    • Some political restrictions to show the limited war situation of 1956

    Bad Points

    • Lack of victory conditions is particular problem given the limited war situation
    • The Axis & Allies production model is a poor match for war that lasted only 9 days


  • ScenarioWWIIv3 1942-11 Nations Mod
    Description AA50 with a lot of minor nations
    Link link

    Good Points

    • Defensive advantages of forests and fortifications shown
    • Meaningful victory conditions

    Bad Points

    • Unlimited combat rounds conflicts with the operational scale of the game
    • Victory conditions not properly implemented
    • Lack of capitals and income values leaves the AI somewhat confused.

    This all applies to WWIIv3 1941011 Nations Mod although the balance is a bit better,
