Just installed the KS Mod and need some Single Player practice. Request help.

Post  Jean Lafitte on Wed Jan 06, 2016 12:23 am

I'd like to spend time Single Playing some scenarios and campaigns with the KS Mod that I have just now installed (apparently successfully).

My assumption is that only user made campaigns and scenarios work with the KS Mod. The stock scenarios do not.

I welcome any suggestions for KS Mod Single Player campaigns, scenarios, Sandbox and the like.
Thanks very much.

First,welcome to the forum.

The stock scenarios can be played with the mod if you do a little work. You have to download the SDK for the game. There is a link for it on the NSD forum. Then create a folder inside the game's Mods folder, name it Stock Scenarios. Inside that, copy the Scenarios folder from the SDK to your Stock Scenarios folder. Now go into the \StockScenarios\Scenarios folder and rename all the scenarios by removing the WL from the sub-folder names. When you start the game, you should see the names of the stock scenarios when you click on the User Scenarios button. Remember these scenarios were created for use with the stock game so the gameplay balance may be off when you use them with the mod. Don't forget to activate this mod. pale

I believe the stock campaign works with the mod. I've not tried it, but I think someone else on the forum has done so successfully.

The next version of the KS Napoleon Mod will have a number of scenarios added to it. These are battles that were created for our casual games that are played during the week, usually as players vs AI. The next version will be released soon. We are just finishing up final testing of a new Nappy map created specially for us by Mark Tewes.

Again, welcome.

Hi Jean, welcome to the forum.

I answered your similar post on the Matrix forum before realising you'd posted here as well.

I was unaware you could play the stock scenarios with the KS Mod by adding them into a new mod! That's good news.

I was also going to suggest here that we include a few scenarios either in the KS Mod or for d/l on this forum but Uncle Billy was a couple of steps ahead of me as usual.

There is also our MP /PBEM Peninsular campaign the battles of which will probably give you the ultimate in MP Nap game experience where everything is set in a wider context of an overall strategy and war.

Thanks so very much.

Right now I'm playing the User Created scenario that allows the AI to Command the whole army while the human player can Take Command of parts of the army. It's file name has "07" as part of the name. It seems to work fine with the KS Mod so far, with game time at high noon.

But, then again, the KS Mod always has worked well with User Created scenarios, right?

To work correctly the user-created scenario needs to be made with one of the KS_OOBs. These are different to the stock ones.

The stock scenarios should work with the KS mod. However, they are heavily scripted and operate under the assumption that stock behavior of the troops will occur. That of course won't be the case. The stock game assumes that artillery is a non-factor in the battle, unlike the KS mod, where it is the queen. It also assumes that useless skirmish groups are spawned which, of course, will not happen. Instead, entire battalions attack in skirmish formation.

Thanks so much for the help.

The KS Mod is quite superior. I really enjoy watching the battalions form the maneuvers and formations described in the book Imperial Bayonets.

I'm looking forward to the next version of the KS Mod.

Thank you very much for the supportive comments Jean. It sounds you are like us - you know something about the history and tactics and want a game that behaves closer to what Napoleonic battles were like as we understand them from period accounts and modern research.

You should join us for some MP games. We play in a gentlemanly and friendly spirit and are all on first name terms. We don't allow gamey play styles and have recently adjusted the mod in one particular aspect to try and counter them and maintain historical balance. As you might have seen from the forum we usually play several times a week - Fridays, Sundays, Mondays and occasionally Tuesdays are our regular days and we play in the evening Europe time and afternoon US time. Our games are often a co-op player team vs the AI and sometimes player vs player teams. We also have our campaign games which are usually about once a week or once every 2 weeks. These are quite different and tend to produce asymmetric scenarios with unusual objectives.
