(Pretty straight forward here. Easy to Play, you might want to take the old version out of your zip the next time)

(I like they way you laid out the forces, )

(Map was great the hill layouts really made the battle come to life.)
(This was a major historical battle in Vietnam, does not get much coverage, the first Americans were killed during this battle though. The VN had no planes, they used the terrain, AA guns and heavy mortar fire to rout the French, something USA would find out later.)
Additional Comments: You did an outstanding job re-tooling the original version. I personally will expect more from your Scenarios in the future. *I did not knock your your balance because, I should have included this info the last time in my comments. You missed two key things about the battle, the French were outnumbered 10 to 1, Viet suffered over 20K casualties compared to about 2K for the French, the French, were mostly the famous Legionnaires, they had an Airbase, they used to resupply the base, however, planes were outdated, I think Japanese, it didn't matter the VN AA guns, kept them from landing, forcing them to paradrop supplies, which ended up in VN hands.

Much better than before, but could've been better.
Generally pretty good. The actual battle was considerably unbalanced, so there has to be some change to that or their would've been no fight.
A number of unique units were employed and their stats altered.
Map Design: 5
The map gives the feeling of the actual location pretty well. It looks green and humid and threatening.
Not much as far as instructions or background of the actual battle. There's a lot more to this battle than can be done in one scenario.
Much better than the original, shows you're growing as a scenario designer.
