  • Attached is temporary link to the Mod "Chattanooga Campaign", Three 10 mile maps set around Chattanooga.

    Updated Download Link - 9/16/16

    This mod is only up long enough for Norbsoft to grab it and host it.

    This contains:
    A slightly reworked Chickamauga map and OOB for September 1863.
    An August Chattanooga Map (sans Lookout Mountain) and OOB depicting the rebel defenses of the river.
    A November Chattanooga Map (sans Lookout Mountain) and OOB depicting the Field works for both armies.

    In the Works:
    1. A complete mod of the Battle of Little Bighorn 1 to 1 scale. This mod with the complete co-design help of Martin James will contain: 95% Done :cheer:
    A. A 10 mile map.
    B. Many new Sprites by POM
    C. Teepees and Terrain features by Crikey
    D. Randomized Indian Encampments (Random map Teepee locations)
    E. Random Scenario Creation with Multiple OOB options (Gatling Guns, etc.)

    2. A complete Mod of the Battle of the Rosebud. A 1 to 1 scale of the Indian fight one week before the Custer fight, set on a 5 mile map. 40% done. (This mod is Martins with my map.)

    3. Honey Springs Mod (my Map) - A Martin James special mod about the Western civil War battle of the Civil War with Indians on both the rebel and Federal side. 30% Done.

    4. Map Of Eylau - Napoleonic battle fought in Poland in a Blizzard, with near white-out conditions... A real challenge. 20% done.

    Before I heavily start making Napoleonic Maps, I wish to make possibly two or three more Civil War Maps.
    A. Seven Days Battle - A 10 mile map covering the last of the Peninsula Campaign. from Fair oaks to Malvern Hill.
    B. A 10 mile map of Gettysburg, including the East cavalry field.
    C. Possibly a 10 mile Map of Antietam.

    Had to revert back to Widows 7 so I can test these. I assume Waterloo is only stable in Windows 7, so I will jump to Napoleonic Maps as long as sprites are available for them.
    I am particularly interested in the Austrian, Prussians, Russians, not so much the fight in Spain.
    I am open to put a Napoleonic Map on the list if someone has any contour maps on any battle field areas, I would love to get my hands on them. or links to them. :cheer:

  • Sounds fantastic.

    One of the big gaps in available Napoleonic sprites are the early battles. Austerlitz would give us early Austrians and Russians which were very distinctly different uniforms from 1809 or later, and with a few additional sprites and some early French republican flags would give us the uniforms for the 1796 to 1800 campaigns in N Italy.

    We also lack accurate Prussian 1806 uniforms, so two battles that would help flesh out the sprite range a lot are Austerlitz and Jena-Auerstadt. The bonus is that with additional flags the 1806 Prussians look a lot like Piedmontese for 1796.

    You would need a map-maker, sprite maker and OOB compiler team for such mods.

    I would support such an effort where I can, mainly uniform, flag and OOB research.

    HITS & Couriers - a different and realistic way to play SoW MP.

  • Saddletank - Reb, Nice to hear from ya.
    Saddletank - When I start a map, I will be looking for correct OOB info. :laugh: Kevin, I presume will supply an OOB for Eylau. I can create my own, but It takes time away from the many projects.
    I also still await some questions from you on maps.

    I waste sooooo much time correcting "accurate" OOBs. I like total OOBs not partial "balanced"...

    Reb,
    We are still waiting for your arrival on the field.

  • Also Reb, you can directly ask me for any info on making a Scenario.
    I will NOT make them anymore (I've made tens of thousands of scenarios) just don't need to do it.
    BUT, I can help you out.

  • My group has a couple of win 10 home too.

    There are different versions of windows 10
    The program works best on Windows 10 home, BUT, NOT on all systems with windows 10 home.
    Since Norbsoft has declared GB dead, I will stay on 7 till I have to upgrade, then I no longer will be able to use it.

    I tested, and purchased new OS enough.
    The same goes with Waterloo.
    I will support them till it impossible to do so.
    They made choices, so must I.

  • Mark - I finally got a chance to checkout your Chattanooga map and it's fantastic. I was just there over the summer and it's cool to take a virtual tour of the 1860's version of a place you visited.. Great work!

  • "MarkT" -Just a reminder when making Maps.

    On the Chickamauga Map - You used the Greyscale Color of "25" to define where the town is on the BMP file.

    The Greyscaale Color 25 is coded as a Riverbank in the game so it can only be used along rivers or creeks.

    Any other use of this "Color" will cause road-path-errors.

    It has been coded this way since the days of TC2M.

    AFAIK - this is the only greyscale color that can't be used in any other way , except along a waterway.

  • Mark and I are nearing the end on LBH. Hopefully a matter of weeks, rather than months :)

    The mod will contain two new maps - Rosebud and Little Bighorn.

    That's all you have to do - except the 2 scenarios will crash unless you do the Lvl3 - Lvl4 change in the scenario files as described near the end of this thread: www.norbsoftdev.net/forum/modifications/72118-maps-as-promissed

  • Having some problems with getting that to work, I've changed Line 472 column N, and Line 982 column N to level4 and still get the crash.
    Could someone with the correct lines upload this?
