Don't now why people on here don't like being cooks, remember under siege: A former SEAL, now cook, is the only person who can stop a gang of terrorists when they sieze control of a US Navy battleship.

You can really shock people with the flyovers too. Some people can't conceive choosing to have -1 for a strategic advantage. :roll:

Who screwed up the ships?

Postby Dave415 on Thu Oct 18, 2007 6:00 pm

Guys-
The USS Thomas Jefferson was a Landing Ship at Omaha. The USS Texas was a BB that shelled the beaches and the Arkansas also was on shell patrol. Did no one care to open a history book before making this map?

We did what people wanted us to do at the time. We had made up names at first then someone thought we should at least include ship names that were actually there and those three won.

yep, the decisions are made by the people who show up, whether or not they are history majors.

Hey guys, great map, but I just noticed one small issue today. I have the colorblind setting on, and on 916 German Grenadiers 2, whenever i have more than 9 armies on there, i can't see the second number...for example, earlier i had 11 armies there, and it appeared as though there was only 1.

If you could please fix this, i'd be greatly appreciative.

if the names were ever changed to fix this what names would you suggst instead. although as the entire map is upside down and they refused to fx that huge error prior to quench the odds on this mistake being fixed are slim enough unfortunately around here accuracy and reality tends to lose out to what looks better :(

D-DAY... and other map improvement ideas...

Postby timthetuneman on Mon Jul 21, 2008 11:40 pm

I think i have probably played more D-DAY games than anyone else (1,000 games)... and I have some GREAT improvements to this map that i IMPLORE you to consider... There is a HUGE PROBLEM with this map... the first player has a HUGE advantage... Here are 3 ideas to fix the problem...

1- In a 2 man game... this map gives 24 territories to each player for 8 armies... this is a HORRIBLE for the 2nd player... All the 1st player has to do is take ONE territory to reduce the 2nd player to 7 armies... PLEASE REDUCE THE NUMBER OF TERRITORIES BY TWO... this will eliminate this easily repairable problem...

2- The NEGATIVE ARMY penalty is just stupid... logically... you should GAIN armies from holding them... they are LIKE HERPES once you have them... can't get rid of them on your own... STUPID... get rid of NEGATIVE ARMIES... instead... GIVE a BONUS army for holding plane and parachute... here is ANOTHER reason to do it... IF one player is lucky enough to have a bonus area (continent)... it INCREASES THE ODDS that the OTHER PLAYER will have a NEGATIVE ARMY... this is TWO reasons to GET RID OF NEGATIVE ARMIES on this map... and... GIVE an army for holding plane and parachute...

3- Whoever goes FIRST... should not be allowed to collect a bonus on his very first turn... this is the most unfair of all situations on all maps... just STUPID... makes the game a BLOWOUT... and NO FUN for whoever goes second...

Repeating the obvious...

1- Reduce total number of territories by 2... This will lessen the 1st players advantage...
2- Eliminate negative armies... and instead... give a bonus army for holding plane and parachute...
3- Do not allow the first player on ANY MAP to collect a bonus on his very first turn...

Think about it... you join a game and go second... the other guy already has a bonus... he gets TEN ARMIES on his first turn and takes say 4 territories from you... you only get SIX ARMIES on your first turn... plus... you have a NEGATIVE ARMY... so you really only get FIVE ARMIES... GAME OVER...!!!!!!

PLEASE FIX THESE OBVIOUS PROBLEMS THAT HAVE SUCH SIMPLE SOLUTIONS...!!!!
