Russian Campaign

Post by Andy Brown » Tue Jan 03, 2006 9:43 am

The post below this one contains a Russian campaign for Firefight.

It covers most of the "main" events of the Great Patriotic War in the central and southern sectors. The file is commented so you can read exactly what historical events I am trying to recreate.

The biggest fudge I've made is to use DESERT terrain for steppe. It's not an accurate substitution but it does provide more variety. Some sort of urban terrain would be REALLY useful, however :D

The Italians are standing in for Rumanians and Hungarians where applicable.

Note that not all of the entries will occur during any given campaign. Firefight tends to advance the calendar by three or four weeks between battles so some entries will be missed. This is intended to produce some randomness in each campaign and seems to work (a bit!).

The text below should be cut and pasted into the Russian.txt campaign file, replacing everything that's in there. Use Notepad or some other text editor, not a word processor.

Cheers,


Andy Brown

Nope. The "//" is a comment delimiter. Works the same as in News_headlines.txt (in the Data subfolder). Just make sure you use a text editor and not a word processor to modify the file.
