Desert Tactics (OF version)
(2 vs. 2)
by: "$ TEXAS $"
This update is not exactly a replacement. this update fixes the code in the scar file so that this map can run
with Opposing Fronts
The map can be used with all four Armies (British, Americans, Axis, and Panzer Elite)
Also a few new visuals have been added to the map
The Special control points are the same, just adjusted for the new Armies
The Black Elite Tiger has been replaced with the King Tiger
as for the command abilities, just like before they are all provided the Panzer Elite have 3 non-obvious abilities
and the British have 4, each has 11 total:
1)Super Charged Artillery
>>This map can be a little demanding on you computer during certain events and may crash if graphics levels are to high<<
>>Map still needs to be played with Fixed positions and all four slots filled with Human or AI players<<

if you HAVE the Original Company of Heroes with patch v1.71 or LOWER DO NOT Download this version
A 4 player map: This map is a return to the desert, with scar coding. The map is somewhat large
and contains a very open center which can prove difficult to hold. There are some familiar control
points on this map as well as some new surprises.
first of all you wont be able to research your command abilities, however you will receive more abilities
than you could originally get (with out cheating), 11 total. 7 of these will appear on your display during
the game but the first three for each team wont be very obvious, so I will tell you what they are:
> for allies <
1) ability to capture points with vehicles
2) ability to allow riflemen to build defenses
3) ability to build Howitzers
> for Axis <
1) greater line of sight around control points
2) the "Fortify Perimeter" ability
3) ability to build "88mm Flak 36AT/AA gun"
of course abilities such as Tiger, Pershing, V1, and Artillery strikes will be provided.
Special control points:
(1) there is one point to receive random, Armor reinforcements
(2) there is one point to receive random, Support unit reinforcements (snipers, Armored cars, etc.)
(3) controlling all four center points will provide special rewards
> for the allies, a Air Raid every 5 minutes
> for Axis, receive a reinforcement of a King Tiger (one for each player)
every 8 minutes
There are also a couple of new surprises to prolong the battle, but I don't want to give away everything.
-Unzip all the files in "Desert_Tactics.zip" to:
"C:\Documents and Settings\HP_Administrator\My Documents\My Games\Company of Heroes\WW2\Scenarios"
Note: "\HP-Administrator\" may go by a different name on your computer
This is a .sga file and does NOT require the "-dev" in the Company of Heroes shortcut
if you already have the "-dev" it's not a problem.
