Future Plans for 1st Edition Game
« on: February 19, 2018, 07:00:10 AM »
Greetings to Mark and John!  I was just wondering if you have any plans for the 1st ed. of the game.  I've got some ideas and adaptations which I'd like to share and possibly use to run a game at Origins and Gen Con-Indy.  Pics are coming in a day or two.  Thanks.

Have you played the game on its current form? I tell you it's a lot of fun.

No, I haven't.  There's a friend who has it and we will attempt it in the future.  I just have updated/altered/added some things to the 1st edition game rules and map.  Thanks for the encouragement.

A bunch of us including John and Mark are going to the consimworld expo in Tempe AZ end of June, if you can make it out there for a few days it would be great!

Thanks for the info.  I'm planning on going to Origins and Gen Con-Indy.  I'm just a little slow in getting around to taking pics of my alterations to show anybody interested.  That will happen soon.

Sir Issac Newton said, "If I can see father than others, it's because I'm standing on the shoulders of giants."  Mark and John, you are the giants of this game.
Here are some alterations I've made to the map.  I mean no disrespect.  I know I will get critics, but please be gentle as with many others, I have a fragile ego.  And sorry if the quality of the pics is poor.  I gave it my best shot.  more will follow.

And this one.  In the Pacific Theater, the sea zones are 2 movement points except around mainland coasts.  Then they are one.

The distance between California and Hawaii is now the same as Canada and Ireland.  Which is pretty close to actual distance.

And, in addition, I've developed a morphed version of the game with different battle boards which incorporate combined arms .  Copies (95% completed) attached.  And these are just for land unit combats.  Also, there are some other alterations to the rules, such as Heavy Tank units take 2 hits; Battleships take 4 hits, production of certain units can be increased with the construction of Industrial complexes, that is, an extra factory allows more aircraft to be produced.  I guess I'm just telling the Giants I referred to that this is my intention.  Hope to get some gamers there to sign up.

I never really seen any pics of the first edition game. Do you have access to the new maps and rule book? The game has involved and has become a very historical accurate and fluent game

The customizations are always welcome and encouraged. We have been very focused on the Advanced version over the past years. That is the focus. Glad you are still having fun with the first edition! Let us know how it goes!!

I like the ideas -  Hope you get some players at GenCon!  Tweaks are always welcome (we have been tweaking the game for like 15 years. . . ).  I think many of them are similar to what we did to the second edition map.

I don't understand the change in the English Channel. . .what was done there and what does the dash line represent? 

The increased distance for some of the sea zones makes sense.

cheers,
Mark

Thanks for the thoughts.  The faint dash line was an attempt to delineate the distance between England and France as closer, so flying from France to England would be just one movement point.  That idea wasn't productive, so hence the dashed line.  I didn't even think of it when I posted the pic.
