OK, please do the DB, as the changes so far are good ones. :) I will do this by early next week, if not sooner. More about the future weathers mod extensions: Basically, they will introduce dynamic annual weather effects. Allowing, for example, warmer than normal winters, unusually severe winters, ...

About my future dynamic weathers extensions: I also follow, and occasionally even play (!), War in the Pacific: Admiral's Edition. By default, seasonal weather is invariant in that game. This presents problems, especially for the Burma and Southeast Asia theater, where in Real Life the monsoon rains...

I can review and update the static, DB-compatible version of my current weathers mod. It's up to you.

But, yes, going forward, future dynamic extensions will be fundamentally DB-incompatible. My preference.

I will review and update the DB file as necessary, then send it back to you. From my perspective, I beg to differ. I can easily see the weather patterns for the entire year in a single line of code. Moreover, it would be a trivial exercise to program a visual display(s) much like what you see in the...

I guess my concerns are that the devs might embrace these modding efforts wholeheartedly at worst, or be somewhat distracted at best. Unless they made it their policy to extend no support to such off-topic (non-historical wargaming) mods whatsoever.

Steampunk? Sci-fi? Sorry gents, but if AGEOD starts to go down those routes I'll lose interest in the company fast.

The questions of emphasis and scope have been discussed here in the fora endlessly for the past several years. Alas, the users have clearly spoken more in favor of an EIA-like game.

I agree with you, veji1. But most of the players, the vocal ones at least, seem to prefer a Grand Campaign NCP, on a larger Europe-wide scale with diplomacy and "production". Like Empire in Arms.

Thanks for the compliment. Great if, as is, it's included in the next patch(es). But please note: My WIA Weathers mod is not at v1.0 yet. I still need to merge some of the ideas and improvements from my ROP Weathers mod, which is nearly at v1.0.

And, yes, most likely there will be (many) more beta and official patches (long) after that.

Does that include the Areas.ini file (i.e., the .xls files that generates that)? I will need to mod that .ini(.xls) file also.
