Revolutionary War Demo

Author File Description
File Details
Needs T&P?: Yes
This download is actually a folder with a 3 different missions that occured in the American Revolution. They are numbered 1 to 3 so that if they somehow get in alphabetical order you'll know which one to play first.

==Three missions==

1.Battle of Lexington:Play as British.

2.Battle of Ticanderoga:Play as Americans.

3.Battle of Bunker Hill:Play as British.

Notice this is only a demo. I should hopefully have the full thing out fairly soon. Also note that these are the three easy missions in the whole thing. They will get harder as thye go along in the full version.

==To install==

When you install this you do it sort of like if you were installing any normal single player scenario. However it is a bit different. Instead of taking out all the files in the folder take the whole folder and put it in the Rise of Nations folder.That way you can go to Play Scenario. Then you should see a whole bunch of folders above the scenarios you already have. Among those folders you should see one that says "Revolutionary War Demo" Open it and then you should see the tree missions. Just play them in order.

Hope you have fun with it. Please tell me what you think of it. Thanks.

What Playability. I never played except to give a Move order or the occansional attack order.

The first 2 battles all you have to do is just stand still and win. In the 3rd you just move your troops and they do the work.

It's been done before but not too much.

Yeah anyone can have a vast plain. In the thrid one all you had was one city with a few buildings. BEsides isn't Boston a big city for the time. A few houses would have helped.

They were okay yet could be confusing. Were was bunker hill? You could have told me it was to the west at least.
probed1969 Did I get the whole thing. 3 bare maps with a few units standing there?

Yes I know it is a bland and yes I know what you are saying and the answer is no. It will be a lot better. Those missions will be revised a lot. They will have more objectives as well. They will also not start directly at the battle and the maps will be more interesting. In case you haven't read it is merely a demo. It will be a whole lot better. So just bear with it.
probed1969 OK, I'll bare with ya. Just don't see much use in uploading these.

The first took 30 seconds, the second 39 seconds and thew 3rd about a minute and a half once I found the hill.

Interesting start for the hill. At least the last one had a town, dock and a couple of boats to look at.

This is a good subject if done well. Good luck.

Don't worry. It will be a lot better. One thing that is holding it back is that I don't get the script editor. I'm trying to figure that one out though...

Easy to play. Not much to do.

Balance: 3
The forces were fairly well balanced. If you use any tactics it becomes lopsided in your favor.

Good idea for a series, good choice of battles, but needs something to make it original.

Bare grass mostly.

Not much given. Guess you're assuming we all know American Revolutionary War history.

Additional Comments:
I would've waited before uploading these until at least doing something with the maps. These look lie they took a bout 10 minutes at most.

Don't worry. I fully understand. I am working on a version where it won't be like that at all.
marce61 Don't apologize, just keep trying, it takes guts to make a scenario for site consumption. Do the best you can and you will naturally get better with effort. Take your time, and remember, the site has alot of different players with different skill levels.

Test your scenario, if, it's easy for YOU, then, you didn't make it hard enough, since you know what's going on.

Don't get discouraged !
