Scenarios missing from database? Thu, 23 April 2009 14:09
I just finished playing a match of Brummbar's "Seelow Heights" scenario. It has been in the SFTF database before, but I can't find it there now when I search for "Seelow" or choose the dropdown to show only Breakthrough scenarios.

I also can't find Brummbar's Ortona or Assoro scenarios when I search for them, and none of these appear under My Service Record, though I've posted AARs on all three.

Have these scenarios blinked out of the database for some reason.

I could find some other SFTF. This seems weird.

Not that I know of.

This isn't a glitch in the scenario editor, I've pulled my scenarios for the time being.

No further comment at this time.

Malcolm,

There's an old latin saying:

Any chance of a translation for a dumb American? I majored in World Literature in college which sadly didn't include Latin. Very Happy

the meaning is:
if you excuse yourself when nobody asks you to do that... it means that "something" happened.

So Malcolm vol. n. 2? When... ehehehe

It's just as I feared -- by working closely with DOW, Brummbar has been infected with "game company syndrome". The first sign is dropping veiled hints to upcoming products without giving any firm information -- or especially release dates. Usually this syndrome is carried by an infected game -- see BattleLore with regards to FFG and DOW. Very Happy

Before any rumours get started, I did this of my own volition for personal reasons.

Discretion is the better part of valour...so the saying goes.

DoW has not contacted me about a Volume II. Whether they plan on making another or not, I am honestly not aware and they will need to answer that themselves.

I am very pleased that Volume I and the Normandy campaign has been well received and thank everyone for their support and comments.

This is great news, Brummbär! Looking forward to playing it.

But, correct me if I`m wrong. You have mentioned a D-day campaign before when talking about new scenarios in CB1.
I think you said that DoW wanted new scenarios in that volume and that is why a D-Day campaign wasn`t included in CB1. Isn`t that right?

You are on the right track here ad79...very observant of you!

No promises though. While the D-Day campaign was written, it was an early form and would need to be revisited before I would want to release it.

At this point, DoW has not contacted me about publishing it.

If I self publish, it would need to be free for legal reasons...but I would consider the effort for my M'44 friends.

D-day campaign for Memoir`44, officially announced by Brummbär 44 days before the 65th anniversary of the D-day. Coincidence? I doubt it!


Keep up the good work, I think all your Memoir friends would be happy to play this campaign, self-published or in a future CB2.

Yeah that would be great, a D-Day part in the campaign book.

I also would like to see some from the Med. Theater and the Pacific Theater to be included in it, but that is up to DoW!

I haven't got the Campaign book yet, but it is priority on the wishlist Razz and what I have heard about it is very positive.

Just to be clear: Development hasn't started on an eventual Campaign Book volume 2 - it's still too early in the sales cycle of volume 1 for us to make a final decision on this.

But the fact that volume 1 was identified as such on its cover might be a hint of our hopes for this type of expansion. Rolling Eyes

For the time being, the current volume should already offer plenty for all to play with, though Very Happy

The CB1 has been universally well received so we hope that sales are, and continue to be, good enough to encourage DOW to start on CB2 sooner rather than later!

Achtung panzer, I think you need to edit you post about Calling Brummbär a star.
To me it looks like I am quoted as someone that self-publishes campaigns. he he
I like the fact that some might think you are calling me a star, but credit has to go to Brummbär here I think.

Dear fellows,
Let's think, what would a D-Day Campaign include?

1st Wave at Omaha Beach
Point du hoc
Utah Beach
Gold Beach
Juno Beach
Sword Beach
Pegasus Bridge

Does this all sound familiar. Haha Laughing Laughing
This is what the base game commemorates- the 60th Anniversary of D-Day.

You forgot something: Sainte-Mere-Eglise - guys from the 82nd fought so bravely - they would definitely get into the campaign! Very Happy

Maybe Brummbar's Battle of the Bridgehead would get into the campaign - that's a great scenario right after D-Day!

I think Brummbär`s intention with the D-day campaign is to put some/most/all of the base game scenarios into a campaign, so some scenarios will surely be familiar.

Thank you, Brummbär.

I'm sure that when you want to say something more, you will.

Ah yes AD79! I have now edited so it reads correctly.

Then again, we're all "four star generals" on this forum!!! Very Happy

Thanks for correcting it!

I might think people knew it was Brummbär that deserved the praise, because not a single person has asked me about info on my self-published campaign. Laughing

Personally I would like to see a full Market-Garden campaign. My grandfather fought in it so it has very personal memories.

I would like that too, I live in Elst near Arnhem so I can visit all of these places very often. I have written a paper on this 2 years ago in school and I have read a lot about it. I see that there are several Market Garden scenarios and a big battlemap but the campaign is one that can easy fit into a CB.

You can include the following:

- Eindhoven / Son / Veghel 101st Airborne
- Grave / Nijmegen 82nd Airborne
- Arnhem British 1st Airborne

then you could add several things to it, like the attack with the 101st towards Nuenen or the march towards Veghel and Uden (split of the several companies/regiments and reconnection)
the capture of the Nijmegen bridge and the arrival of the Polish airborne brigade...there are several things you could add and it is nice to add some objectives as in CB 1 ....

a very good idea indeed!

If we're talking about D-day, you can't forget the attack on the Merville Battery, which preceded the landings on Sword beach. The scenario I'm talking about isn't an official scenario, but it is a very good, and accurate scenario written by Doc Halloween. I have a newspaper clipping from last year about the battle. I found a map of the site online, and found Doc's scenario to be very accurately done. Good job Doc!

Yeah Tim, like those ideas, you could also cover XXX Corps' advance; some nice combined armour/infantry action to be had.

DOC08 we are thinking in the same direction! Very Happy You could indeed include it and it is important to not forget the role the British Armoured Divisions played!
