AE Scenario Mod's

UPDATED February 27th, 2015


These Scenarios are for enhanced realism for the  STOCK GAME  
(with minor changes to the Stock OOB). These Scenarios are best played Head to Head with Experienced Japanese Players - they do not feature the stock AE Debuffs/Nerfs for Allied starting OOB (but All scenarios play well against AI).
The main emphasis for B-Mod is to get more historically realistic combat results. For this purpose there has been only minor edits to the Order Of Battle, but major warships and combat aircraft have been statistically redefined.

All scenarios require Andrew Brown's Extended Map and DaBabe's New Asian Roads (files provided below.)
All scenarios require the new artwork
(files provided below.).
Download the scenarios, and all art files below, and place where indicated.

Scenario list:
Scenario 191   Relief of Wake Island (Dec 16th - Dec 27th 1941).
Scenario 192   Coral Sea (May 4th 1942 - May 11 1942). This is equivalent to Stock Scenario 3.
Scenario 195   South Pacific. (Aug 1942 - Feb 1943) This is equivalent to Stock Scenario 4.
Scenario 197   Grand Campaign Philippines Reinforced (Dec 7th 1941 - Mar 1946).
Scenario 199   Grand Campaign (Dec 7th 1941 - Mar 1946) This is equivalent to Stock Scenario 1.

Scenario Descriptions:

Standard scenario changes (all) - Grand Campaign - Scenario 199 Mod changes (Dec 7th start date): 

Aircraft stats & maneuver ratings modified using original AE  Dev Team Data, Original 2X3 UV/WitP Data, and WitP B-Mod Data. (Added Concentration Of Fire Bonus for Nate, Claude, and Oscar - so they may be useful in air combat).
Aircraft guns and weapon ranges have been modified using exterior ballistics research for each gun type (a project I was asked to do during AE development - but unfortunately was never instituted).
Important change - Air Combat has a maximum ceiling of 28,000 feet (as strategic bombing and subsequent air combat above this altitude seldom occurred in the PTO. This will eliminate unrealistic High Altitude bouncing).
Russian Aircraft; the LaGG-3 aircraft will begin being available to the Soviets at small rates in Dec 1941 instead of 1945, and the La-5FN will begin arriving in in Jan 1944 instead of 1945. This is historical (and less than 10% of Soviet production), and gives the Soviet Union some more advanced fighters (better than I-16) before 1945 - should the Japanese begin hostilities prior to 1945 activation.
New ship and aircraft  art:  new ship art as well as Cathartes new 'plane tops', Both Allied & Japanese, are included.
New warship stats (all nations) - using Nathan Okun's gun & armor Data, with new warship tonnage, durability, and fuel.
Allied units starting in the Philippines, DEI, Malaya, and Borneo - are free to move and relocate (except for large CD Guns), making strategic and tactical redeployment possible (the AI does this anyway). Starting Units on map have had their disablement's reduced to original AE levels...ie.. Historical levels.
China - has had its Hvy Art RGT's re-equipped with their missing 150mm & 122mm guns. Also, 12 Chinese Corps have been re-designated Central Army (better  equipped squads, higher morale and experience - less disruption) to recreate Chiang Kai Shek's reliable KMT Army. Chinese Warlord troops (static) added to Southern China. Chinese internal supply enhanced.
Truk - the missing small submarine repair shipyard has been added.
No other OOB changes have been made to scenarios 199.

Scenario 197 Grand Campaign, Philippines Reinforced (Dec 7 1941 - Mar 1946):
Grand Campaign, with
historically planned Reinforcements to the Philippines arriving by Dec 7th 1941.  Major reinforcements include 34th Inf RCT, 19th Bomb Group (B-17D), 5th Bomb Group (B-17D), 27th Bomb Group (A-24), 24th Pursuit Group (P-40E), 35th Pursuit Group (P-40E). See Scenario Description for full background and notes.

Scenario 195 South Pacific 1942 :
Guadalcanal /
New Guinea Campaigns.
Has the standard changes above, plus a few additional IJN and Allied DD's in the theater, and Task Forces reorganized (at start), allowing for a little more Japanese starting force and independent Australian Naval Task Forces.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Scenario 192 Coral Sea May 1942:
Has the standard changes above, plus changes to the AI behavior for the Port Moresby Invasion Task Force (they will not suicidally head to Port Moresby unsupported in the face of a Japanese Naval Defeat).

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Scenario 191 Relief of Wake Island Dec 1941:
Brand new scenario never done before. Dec 16 - Dec 27 1941, the US Navy's aborted attempt to relieve Wake Island.
Has the standard changes above.

NOTE:
The artwork additions and Andrew Brown's Extended Map are not compatible with stock  - SO - make a separate install of WITP/AE.

When installing/extracting files - say YES to overwrite existing files.


I also recommend that you browse the Alternative Combat Screens section above and pick out new combat screens to better display the artwork.
