Thank you. I also want to do short videos on advanced play questions, but it will depend on when I have the time (likely not soon).

The main problem is that the tech from back then is simply not used anymore. There is an interesting series of articles on ars techica about the study of the old Saturn V rocket engines. All the bolts and nuts and screws and everything just is impossible to get anymore, not produced. So that means you need to redesign for a retool with modern parts. While you do that you want to do computer modelling. Back then many things could simply not be understood and were done by trial and error and big margins, if it worked, it worked. Now with Computational Fluid Dynamics modelling software we can understand and optimise how things work. Parts can be cast as single pieces rather than using many many welds. The main problem is not so much tech, but that it's hugely expensive. Doing the same thing again, or redoing it the modern way. There is much less willingness to spend billions on it. If the money was there, it could be done again easily.

Edit: the story that you sometimes hear about how the original plans to the Saturn V rocket were lost is an urban legend. They have all the plans. But as I said, it would be impossible to simply remake from designs since the parts no longer exist, and a lot of solutions were improvised by people that are no longer around.

I thought about creating "fake" Overthrough scenarios with just the title. For example "D-Day Overthrough: Sword+Juno". The map would be empty but at least it would allow players to write their AARs. What do you think?

Done. Official scenarios, sort by last edit.

Any word on when the Equipment Expansion Bonus scenarios (8 in all) will be added to the official site?

I honestly don't know... I'll ask about that.

Antoine,

can we expect an update to the Editor software in the near future with all the new features implemented?

Not before September, and it will only include the new River Mouth tiles and the Entry tokens.

WBC and online friends,

Sam has been kind enough to include one of my scenarios, Push to the Ruhr, in the upcoming schedule at WBC on Friday August 8th at 11 P.M. I just wanted to get an idea of who is going to be interested in playing. I plan on bringing copies of the scenario. For those of you who will be playing look me up on Thursday or Friday for a copy. Also, if there is time, I will be bringing copies of 2 other Overlord scenarios that I feel would be fun to play. Let me know if you are interested. You won't be disappointed as I feel they play out really well.

Eric
