  • Dictator 3 - War Is Erupting!

    Once again, Panzers roll over the Russian border, Japanese warriors battle across China,
    Spitfires scream to defend Britain and US bombers fearlessly thunder across nazi-occupied skies.
    But this time it all looks so much prettier!

    As you might have guessed, this is the next incarnation of my Dictator series of WW2 scenarios.
    Featuring many new graphics by all the current graphic aces; including stupendous new units by master craftsman, Fairline!

    Also major thanks to; Dannyevilcat, Tanelorn, Harry Tuttle and of course Nemo!

    The new scheme of things are geared to keeping single and multi-players happy.
    Gone is the V2 system, replaced with one more akin to my previous scenario, Bitterfrost.
    Techs are along traditional lines, and war is simply a matter of declaring it with units.
    The main strength of D3 is the fair mix of new units and the intelligent design of rules.

    Some civs have special improvements, some have super units, some have cheap units.

    But why listen to this old shell-shocked veteran?
    Soon you will be able to play and find out for yourself!

    Current Dictator 3 features;
    As always - New events, rules and sounds.

    And - New extra units and graphics.

    All major sides are playable and suitable for MP battles.

    Diplomacy and limited government changes are available.

    High cost and unit attrition is such that the 'too many units' limit is not a problem.

    Allies are aggressive...The UK Russia and USA really battle for victory!

    Japan and the Third Reich are well balanced. No easy triumph!

    New unit sheilds for all national and generic units.

    Allies frequently strike and sieze cities!

    Many frantic and lethal battles!

    And much more!

                  I hope this doesn't affect the schedule for Bitterfrost ToT.

                    Curt, here's an idea. Maybe you should make some events for post-WW2, through 1955, or the end of the Korean War, 1953...just something to seperate D3 from D1 and D2..

                      Art, there was Soviet Steel.

                      Curt, this sounds absolutely fantastic.
