So the other day, I loaded the game, got out my notebook, and kicked off. Half an hour in, it crashed—the same division by zero error that ended the last scenario. Uh-oh.
I tried again. Same result. I tried on a different computer. Same result.
I’m afraid I’m going to have to call it prematurely once again. I’m not sure what the cause is, but I suspect a bug in the estab (the database defining the 1940s equipment, which is a third-party add-on that comes with this scenario pack)—some quantity which shouldn’t be zero is zero. It doesn’t detract from Command Ops as a whole, but does make this particular endeavor a little disappointing.
Anyway, that brings us to the close of Winter Wargaming. I’m thinking to start another wargaming series to take us through this year; it’ll be lower-intensity, about a post per month, and feature fewer decision points—maybe once every month or two. I’m going to poll the peanut gallery (parvusimperator) and see which of a few games he thinks I ought to spotlight.
Expect story updates next week, and a fun Skypirates post later this week.
