Working on version 1.03 at the moment.

Up and coming:

- Hills
- Better urban environments
- Squad experience levels
- Victory conditions

I had a great playtest session with the new urban population today. A Tiger commander was spotted in the village, where it blew apart my approaching scout car with a long ranged shot. My pursuing Shermans rolled in after it and were shot up by panzershrecks! The Tiger disappeared, nowhere to be seen, as my tanks withdrew to the outskirts and waited for my infantry to arrive. An enormous house-to-house firefight then broke out. My commandos held out for fifteen turns under a hail of bullets, fighting from the ruins, before finally succumbing. The elusive Tiger returned on the flank as the street fighting died down, shot up my Firefly in a duel, rumbled through the wreckage and promptly got brewed-up by a 6 pounder as it lost its nerve and tried to retreat.

I have a lot of fun with the game when it manages to produce dynamic stories. Can't wait to get a campaign mode set up, but that's a long way away still.

That sounds and looks amazing... I need to give it a good go one of these days... it was just too much of a headscratcher with not a lot of direction in the first release...

Now I understand why games like Advance Wars really had to hit you with the tutorials! Razz
