QuoteDefinitely, I've wanted to get that back into production for years.  I think the current plan is to convert it into a modular setup instead, so that you can create different types.

Quote from: Genom on 08 July 2024, 04:22:33 PMMy understanding from what I've heard is the company did a server patch (standard practice), that failed and they tried to rollback, something went wrong and the backups corrupted. Bit of a vicious circle especially when your admin is away on a cruise.

Is that the server company then and wouldn't they be liable for the lost data?  As far as I know Tradestands is a one-man operation so I'd assume he's paying for a dedicated server somewhere to host all of these websites on.

Quote from: Big Insect on 08 July 2024, 06:36:23 PMI'd look at the BKC Spanish Civil War supplement as some of the mechanism, such as the 'Line Commander' rule should work pretty well for WWI.
Of course it also all depends which front and when you are looking to apply the rules to?
Early War Western Front should be very much like BKC - little or no armour of course. Palestine and Middle East would probably work just as well.
Eastern Front was also, on the most part a much more fluid war - but a lot of artillery - so again core BKC (with the Line Commander rule) should work ok.

Western Front - trench warfare is another matter altogether - in theory BKC should work OK but you'd need a lot of artillery and defenses. You could also adapt the static Smoke dispenser rule from the Korean War (Forgotten War) supplement, and use it for both Smoke and Poison Gas (if you so desire!!!).
Late War Western Front is another challenging game - possibly better played as a skirmish game (?) to represent the trench raiding aspect of things, or a large board game to represent the replacement of exhausted or depleted formations (almost like a game of battleships on land) - just a mad thought  :D

But if Leon can find that old conversion supplement, that would be helpful.

Cheers
Mark

All very good point to ponder over, thank you.

Quote from: Leon on 08 July 2024, 02:23:40 PMI think there was a supplement/document on the old BKC archive but I can't seem to find it now. I'll keep looking.

Thank you  :)  I appreciate you taking the time to look.
