Occasionally, importer causes translation problems between systems. If you encounter any difficulty, let me know and I should be able to correct. I cannot find that module at this time. I will reconstruct the coordinates and add them to all modules later. The following modules are posted:.

I have always liked this system, and have always liked the game. Even more so after SPI came out with the mods for it. Right after I found TripleA on sourceforge. The base rules are simple. You start off with basic Infantry and Armor It has a bunch of add ons Even swimming tanks. I can post all the data, and would love to work with someone on this project.
We could add islands, and a host of other things exspand water areas. I don't hate you, just the person that plays you in the real world. Re: Blitzkrieg published , by Avalon Hill Company. What is the substitutes column on the bottom part of the map image? My first thought is that it looks fairly easy to implement, depending on what the combat system is. Correctly crazy, disingenuously German. Unit break down. You can take a armor unit and make it two units.
A can break down into 4 units. So you can just keep adding on to it as Dunnigan and Redmond Simonsen did.
You can also see Dunnigans thinking in later games. Units can start off as small units and grow into larger units etc. It would also provide a base line for others to do a great many mods. Being so basic it should not be a huge undertaking but I am still working out how to do maps. No it would not be unachievable.
Just a lot of setup in an xml and drawing new unit icons. But the premise is intriguing indeed. In reply to this post by HardThunder. Like Hepps said, you wouldn't be able to practically have that many unit icons present, you would probably need to condense. Rather than having a you would have 4 's for example You also want to figure out if the combat system will translate well, TripleA has some flexibility but you can't really change the core combat routine Correctly crazy, disingenuously German.

Actually have the game in a shed somewhere. GL Pras. There are some inherent difficulties in converting a hex and counter wargame to TripleA.
TripleA is an area movement game, Now of course these areas could be hexes and there are some TripleA mods that are hex-based. However, the map of a hex and counter game generally has many more hexes then an area movement game.
This will slow play. The high movement allowances will also slow the AI. TripleA uses an individual hit combat system, rather than odds-based system. Blitzkrieg has a stacking limit. TripleA has some support of stacking limits, but the AI does not really handle it. TripleA does not have supply rules.
Some mods have workarounds, but they slow the game and are not understood by the AI. TripleA has no rules for ZOC's, advance after combat, flank attacks and the like.
I suggest trying a smaller game than Blitzkrieg first to see if you can resolve these issues. I suspect that a direct conversion of Blitzkrieg will not be interesting to play. RogerCooper has a really good point, most of the interesting interactions in TripleA come as a result of positioning, and games based on hexes can struggle as a result. A good example is Tactics Campaign, its a balanced game with some room for strategic variety, but its just not very exciting; you can often take your opponent's turn for them because the best move is pretty obvious.
To really get something interesting going you will need some very unconventional combat, I think Correctly crazy, disingenuously German. In reply to this post by RogerCooper. RogerCooper wrote. To really get something interesting going you will need some very unconventional combat, I think.
Im not objecting, just offering some thoughts, making a good looking map takes a long time and I would hate to someone do it only to find out it doesn't work very well. All is intentioned to be helpful. It seems like you have interesting features planned, and my point was just that for hexes you will need something creative for units or the game will be horribly boring from experience TripleA's movement features have a tendency towards certain behaviors. For instance, on that battle of moscow map, my first thought is that the territories on the flanks are much less valuable than the center territories.
This is partially because TripleA doesn't do encircling very well, historically its a major part of warfare but in TripleA the encircled army will often be in the better position. Hopefully you can find a way around this. Also, have you the seen the 2. You might find it more useful since it walks you through the process and explains it better than the first does. I would just pick a map and shove it into the map creator until you are able to play a full game on a map you created Correctly crazy, disingenuously German.
I would just pick a map and shove it into the map creator until you are able to play a full game on a map you created. You will find it much easier than trying to do a map by hand. You can save your progress part way through, and all you really need to start is a map image just stick some other maps flags and units in, this part is easy to change. You can't really do a map by hand, the place, centers and baseTiles will take much longer by hand, and the polygons file is impossible without a utility helping you The goal of the map maker is just to get a map that runs, then you typically want to do the improvements by hand Correctly crazy, disingenuously German.
Thank you I will give it a shot in the next 48 hours. Battle for Germany is another classic hex and counter game, but it would need at least to be rescaled or the Russians would just walk through the German line in the East.

In fact I would be more then happy to make two sets of icons. In fact a page is still up that Helps you do that. I have no issue with that. I do not see any issue with having unit levels , other then it would slow down play, and take more time to script with the added lines, in fact from looking it does not seem that hard to come up with a script to move units to special factories to combine them.
But that would be for later, now just making the basic map, game would be, and is my aim. As for units, just the basic ones for now. Later someone can add Atomic Armor swimming Airborne Tank units. Like I said the only thing that I can think of that would have any effect on the program is the number of units, Types, size of the units and those things that suck up memory, and cpu use.
As for combat multipliers. But I dont see having any of that stuff here at this time.

I am Very good at G-2,3 and 4 but 4 is very boring to me. Something TripleA is very good at. Doing this game in any game development system is going to take more code, and cpu use then then original Axis and Allies game, that is just a fact of life. I have not seen any issues with hexs.
Stacking does not seem to be that much of an issue. The placement within the game script seems to be the greatest issue. Battle for Moscow may be a way of playing with scripting options. Battle for Germany would be of more interest to me. This game has so much room for growth then any other that I know of, and much of the work was completed years ago. Just having the minor countries build was something that that changed things.
Alliances,Guerrillas etc. I really do not get why so many objections. I am not taking anything from anyone.
