  • El Aurens! A teaser.



    In the tradition of Kyokujitsu and others , I announce the arrival of "El Aurens" sometime in the distant future (seriously, I'm hoping by the end of the year). This ToT scenario depicts the campaigns of the Near East in the Great War from December 1915 to until the war's end. Covering the Senussi and Hejaz revolts as well as the campaign in Sinai then Palestine, it combines both wide-ranging desert scrambles and trench warfare against the Turks in Palestine.



    Can the Allies scramble to stem the Senussi advance in the Western Desert in early 1916?



    Can the poorly equipped but highly mobile Hashemite Bedouins hold off the Turk counterstrokes from Medina?



    More...

    Reinforcements are 'researched' rather than built. Units arrive as techs (requests) are discovered (granted by the War Office).



    A key to success is the careful management of cities to ensure that the War Office 'reviews requests' every turn.

      Those screens look mighty impressive.

      Hac in hora/ sine mora/ corde pulsem tangite;/ quod per sortem/ sternit fortem,/ mecum omnes plangite!

        Also vital is your ability to capture modern-day Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel, and Saudi Arabia with a minimum of casualties. This was after all a sideshow in WWI. High casualties for little gain cost General Murray his job. His successor, Allenby, routed the Turks with fewer casualties than were suffered during one day on the Somme.



        By the end of the game, you will command tanks, armored cars, heavy artillery, aircraft, and perhaps the best mounted infantry that ever fought -- the Australian Light Horse. Can you build the trans-Sinai railroad so that you can deploy this overwhelming force to Palestine in time? Can you control huge swaths of desert and tie down Turks with your Arab irregulars? Can you force the Senussi back to their desert fortress at Kufra?

        Geesh EZRhino, you're fast! Thanks , but if you look closely, you'll see the art of a dozen Civvers.

              Wow, looks fantastic Boco!

              But another few months, seriously!? It looks pretty finished to me.

              A question with regard to the scoring system. The screen you displayed was of normal Civ2 scoring. Does this mean that youre not going to use an objective points system?

                            Looking forward to this one Boco, as I've said before. Where did you get the mountain gfx from?

                            BTW Dave, thanks for sending me the aircraft and Erhardt graphics - I must remember to backup files before my computer dies again
