Two SP scenarios are included for each battle along with a sandbox OOB. Four duplicate scenarios provide for carry over options. Four MP scenarios completes the 16 scenario set.

PR05-March 8th-Battle of Elkhorn Tavern (C-Corps)

The last two SP scenarios represent an alternative 'What If' battle:
PR07-March 7th-Battle of Little Sugar Creek (C-Corps)
PR08-March 7th-Battle of Little Sugar Creek (U-Corps)

For Sandbox play select 'OOB_SB_Pea_Ridge'. Before that, in Options, adjust the sprite ratio to 1



Work on this SR1 mod began in the summer of 2022 but was delayed that September with the announcement of re-releasing x64 versions of the SOW games through Steam. Finally found time a couple of months ago to finish this mod, and just ahead of the 162nd anniversary of this battle -- March 7th and 8th, 1862.

thank you for this mod, I greatly appreciated the scenarios

I think the "realistic battle distances" are very interesting and a good addition to the simulation

I like that map too, so I ask you if there is a "spring/summer" version of it, to use for sandbox etc

SR1 Upgrade...

- The True LOS upgrade established realistic battle distances, this SR1 upgrade now establishes realistic troop numbers.
- Major upgrade of all scenarios. All battlescript files have been rewritten and tested thoroughly along with most maplocations files to make the scenarios more competitive and still winnable. Not to mention correcting the multitude of mistakes I made as a novice modder over a decade ago.
- Since regimental officers are added with SR1 play, 39 new portraits are added -- 11 USA and 28 CSA.
- Change of the carryover scenarios procedure. Now the carryover scenarios are the option, whereas the non-carryover scenarios are the default. For clarification the new write up on post one lists and shows this new procedure with the scenario listings and how the carryover scenarios are renamed.
