    @RogerCooper Especially since there we are talking about an early development stage (it is labelled as version 0.x), I wouldn't consider 300BC as a separate map. It is just the old way 270BC was called. Sometimes maps get their names changed overtime; I don't think this should necessarily make for a new map, otherwise you would be rating each single released version of any maps (so, you would have a lot of TWWs to rate, for example).

    Just giving my opinion. If I would be making a map, and eventually change its name, I don't think I would see it like I've made a second map, and if someone would ask me why I've stopped developing the "first" map, I would just tell him "dude, I've just changed its name". The guy that made 270BC just initially called it 300BC. Btw, the two major bad points of this version of what would be 270BC are rather that the map is way unbalanced in favour of AntiRomans and warelephants are too cheap; at 12 PUs and 4/4 I would hardly buy any other land units, especially since warelephants are exceptionally good marines (you can ship 1 warelephant and 1 swordman, for total 16 TUV, on a 12 PUs ship).

    But it would be better if names never get changed, to keep it clear.

    Of course agree with the stack problem, for 270BC in general, coupled with the spam problem of the 1/1/1 cost 2 units (slingers/peltasts), tho not having air helps a lot in burning down units (because you use more land units to trade), especially if you play with regular dice (as the settings are). A minor issue for this version (no support for them yet) is that cataphract are so costly you would virtually never buy them.

    So, personally, unless you plan to keep archived all the various versions of 270BC, I would remove this 300BC map, since it is just the very old 270BC. If there is an intermediate version of 270BC that rather deserves to be kept available, I would say it is the 1.3.1 one.

    @Cernel I put a note on my wiki indicating that the scenario is superseded.

    The problems with low movement allowances and absurdly large stacks are also in 270 BC.

    @RogerCooper "The World at War 1941"? That is not a game of the "World At War" map in High Quality repository for sure.

    Maybe you are thinking at the 1941 setup of the "The World at War" map, by ezell?

    On this matter, @Schulz do you still have your mod of that game? Maybe uploading it to repository? I remember to have played it a while ago.



  • Yes but it was unfinished map so no need to add it to the repository.


  • Donators

    @Cernel Your right, I referenced the old file The_World_at_War.zip


  • Moderators

    @Schulz I seem to recall it was fairly playable, but I hardly remember. If not the official repository, I guess @RogerCooper wouldn't mind adding it to his one. What was the problem with the original ezell, or anyways the aim of the mod, btw, just to refresh my memory?

    Good Points

    • Adds Supply Rules

    Bad Points

    • Supply rules slow the game with little effect on play

    The problem is that supply can be traced to any same nation factory, at the end of the player-turn, through any friendly land area or empty sea area. It is too hard to actually knock someone out of supply. It would probably be better if supply could control only traced to some staring factories, with effect at the start of the turn, but make the effect less than total elimination.
