1916: Trench Warfare of World War I

Author File Description
File Details
Needs T&P?: Yes
While the other Allied troops all over the region launched an assault against Boche's positions all over the Somme river, the Germans launched their own assault against our division entrenchments in Mametz Woods, near Bazentin.

This scenario is mostly artillery scenario: The artillery plays an important role in the mission, especially in destroyed concetrated masses of enemy units.
Planes are also useful- they are good for shooting down enemy planes, destroying ground units and revealing the enemy positions to friendly artillery.
Machine guns are also overpowered, and flamethrowers too.

Your mission is to repel the Boche's assault until you will get tanks- Mark I Light Tanks- armoured vehicles with large enough range to act like small artillery, but more mobile than the heavy guns, and able to move and capture enemy trenches.

Have fun!

Fun, good way to kill 10-20 minutes. But bugs with scripting you could fix. i.e. Unit spawning randomly around ranks, artillery is nice but it kept shooting at my units when there were no signs or enemy, and fired at enemies no where in range. Average replay value.

Balance: 4
Easy to play, but pretty challenging if you dont use your airbases, when i did use em the enemy get cut down fast by my artillery after revealing them with the planes.

Eh, i liked it, its not 5 material but if i could maybe 3.5-3.7 Good fun.

Liked how it look, there were times when the enemy popped up randomly in our ranks, which messed up all my troops/

Story/Instructions: 4
Nice story and instructions. You used the choice popup thing nicely.

Additional Comments:
Also you can set camera when you set a pop up too, using jump_camera(x,y); i think it was. Just put it before the pop up you want it to be in. If it's during the game i think you need to put it in a trigger. cause the camera went all over the place. doesnt mess with gp though.

Very fun! Usually the "battle" type scenarios I find boring, but this is one of the best!

Balance: 4
Definitely challenging, but not impossible. I won on the second try

Creativity: 4
WWI is more creative than WWII, but still I can't give this a five for the Creativity Category.

Map Design: 5
Very well designed map! Definitely gave me the impression of "Trench Warfare."

Story/Instructions: 5
Great instructions! I especially like that you let the player choose what re enforcements to get.

Additional Comments:
This is the best battle scenario I have seen yet! Keep up the good work.

and if someone could'nt understand why did I call the German riflemen "Bill's Boche Soldiers" - the reason is that the German Emperor, Wilhelm II, was often nicknamed by the British "Kaiser Bill".
Boche is a term used widely in World War I, often collectively ("the Boche" meaning "the Germans").
'Tommy soldiers' refers to 'Tommy Atkins' - a term for a common soldier in the British Army.
Spandau MG08 (the machine gun- based on the unique MG42) was the German Army's standard machine gun in World War I.
Vickers .303 - the British machine gun- is a name primarily used to refer to the water-cooled .303 inch (7.7 mm) machine gun produced by Vickers Limited, used widely by the British Army during WWI.
darknight1207 i just played that and my first thoughts are great beginning but a bit boring at the end. im not telling you to make it shorter but im saying it needs more action like maybe sending every german unit at the end for a final frontier then when they lose like over a 3 quarters they all retreat instead of making them just stand their get shelled buy bombs or shot down by biplanes.
but over all it was great.
sweat as dude. =)
