Iron Sky (1) - File Description  


Description:
Description from the Author:-
Quote:
The map was originally going to be based on the Eastern European city from the Half-life 2 universe, although when the project got underway it slowly became just another nameless and destroyed city with many buildings partially or fully destroyed and not much cover for infantry. Thin and crowded streets dictate a need to infantry and cover choke points well to prevent being flanked by the enemy. Also the scarcity for space means that 'Spam' tactics will not work as tanks will get caught on buildings and infantry will (should) be slaughtered by machine gun fire, tactics of slow advances and entrenchment are the way forward.

The name Iron Sky was taken when I decided to spice the map up a bit by giving it a Futuristic-Imperialistic feel with massive concrete installations set up by a returning German army after the end of WW2.

The map generally can be player with 4 people but I added the extra 2 players in to spice up the game-play a bit. It should be noted that players 2 & 5 have little (pretty much none) space for building and so if thinking to remove two players then remove players 2 & 5 to make sure that the game-play is not heavily affected.


The author is correct, spamming infantry doesn't really work that well faced with fortified buildings that are near impossible to flank. Spamming snipers or morters, however works wonderfully for rapid advances. If you like urban combat, your likely to like this map. If you like more fluid & mobile combat however, your unlikely to like this map much.

Iron Sky (1) - Readme  
Readme File:
Extract the file (City 17.sga), you will probably want to use win-zip for this.

Then place the file into Documents/My Games/Company of Heroes/WW2/Scenarios

Once you have done this then you will need to bring up the properties of a desktop shortcut to CoH, on the second bar (target) you need to insert '-dev' onto the end:

COH.exe" -dev (remember the all important space before -dev.

Have fun, feel free to use any and all of my work, just please quote my name in if you use it in your own maps, etc.

Looks Beautiful - nicely asymmetric too. I am a Half Life 2 fan and even if this does not come out like City17, I think we can see the influence.

Shall give more feedback when I have ground the allies into the ...um... ground. Roll Eyes (sarcastic)

I salute you!

There's a few problems with this map, mostly related to sectors which don't connect properly. I played against a single AI player and found I couldn't build any buildings at all. When I got to the other end of the map, the AI had built two buildings but there were no units. Supply is also extremely low.

There's also a building owned by one of the players - not to serious but its quite difficult to destroy.

Its also worth renaming the files so they match the scenario title - very confusing otherwise.

Map detail is very good, though, and I'm sure if you fix the above it has the makings of a great map.

Thanks for that I hadn't actually noticed the big building converts to whichever player takes it first, I'll remove that and replace it with another..

Also which AI were you playing against? Because I did find in testing that AI could be beaten quite easily sometimes even hards were quite simple to defeat..

And finally I think you not being able to build buildings is down to one of the players on either team having zero building zone area as players 2 & 5 were last minute additions requested by my friends and so try playing as either slots 1/3 or 4/6. If it gives you any more problems let me know

PS. the supply is intentionally low to try and force both teams into using a mixed bag of infantry and tanks rather than just getting to the armor stages and then spamming tanks and cars, with little fuel, tanks become a commodity and need to be used in conjunction with infantry, but yes you are right in that it is a little too low, I may need to boost the number of points.

IIRC I played Wehrmacht in the central start position, with an AI in the central position opposite.

3v3 - I found that the AI gave a hard fought game on hard with the main action on the North - South road. Each team will build, but it takes a while and they will eventually set up buildings on other bases ground. It is a very replayable map and I am going to try the 1v1 next. Though fairly symmetric, it doesn't give that away in the design.

Your plan to keep the resources low leads to a good long game with, as you predicted, a mixed bag of units being made.

7/10 (9/10 with a modicum of tweaks),

I salute you!

If it does need opening (and I don't think it does) you need to use win-zip, can be found for free on the internet and most computers have it

If it downloads as the file city 17 with 'doc page' logo then just place it in the appropriate area : Documents/My Games/Company of Heroes/WW2/Scenarios

If that doesn't work then you might need to ask some other people on this site who downloaded it
