    1933 Italy 1.03 Beta

    The devs have been working hard behind the scenes, and I thought you guys might enjoy a sneak peek at some of the changes and new features.

    Apparently Image Shack has made some changes to their system. Are these pics ok with everybody? I might want to switch away from image shack, I don't like their new set up.

    I am unable to enlarge them. Change the links please.

    Ok, it is fixed. Now I can actually move forward.

    As you can see, Italy starts with a good tech base. This is important to my strategy, because I make money by selling blue prints to future Axis members and assorted neutrals. Money is very important to my Italy strategy. One of the big changes made is that investing in research efficiency now also gives random blueprints. Since I will only have 4 tech slots to work with, blue prints and tech concentration is a must.

    Before we get the show on the road, let me answer a question some of you are likely asking. "How will I get so much cash and resources?" The key to my Italian strategy is blueprint sales. I won't belabor the point, but let me post a few early shots to give you an idea of how lucrative it can be for Italy.

    I have basically skipped past the boring build up phase until Jan 1935. That is when I get the 2nd Italo-Abyssinian war decision. I kind of drag my feet during this war, mainly to get some upgrades done. Italy needs every scrap of ic she can borrow beg or steal. Thus I actually drag it out until may of 35. Not so long as to be gamey, but still shorter than the historical war iirc. This is the easiest war you will fight, except for the invasion of Albania. I am not going to get into this too much. My strategy is simply to kick their behinds and march on the capital. I take every province before taking the capitol in order to gain experience for my troops and leaders. This will be very important in less than a year.

    So no new techs at first look.

    So, it is 1936. I can either keep doing a boring build up or.....


    Look at Spain, a seething cesspool of liberals, anarchists, and wannabe commies.


    Knock, knock. Anybody home?


    Almost every beach was undefended. Too easy. I also told the devs that Spain needs more VPs.


    Spanish navy come out to plaaaay. (5 points to whomever gets the movie reference)


    More naval action


    More ships to sink


    These sailors are brave, I give them that.


    That should take care of that.


    Valencia gets reinforcements. So far it is the only resistance I face.


    Grazioli has already had an active career. Not much experience to show for it though.


    They really seem determined to defend Valencia.


    Finally, a little more resistance.


    Resistance in Valencia is growing stronger.


    We gain an extra angle of attack over land.


    Genoa is now pocketed.


    The current state of Italian advance.


    Spanish resistance was truly too little too late.


    I now have 4 angles of attack including the original amphibious assault.


    The advance continues on all fronts.


    The first battle still rages on in Valencia.

    Short and sweet. Italy gains another useful puppet. To me, this highlights the weakness of the mobilization system vs the daily mp growth system. By the time a small to mid sized nation mobilizes in response to an attack, and builds some divisions, they can be annexed.

    That made me laugh. They were just begging to be invaded

    You'll be able to seal the Med in no time now when war with the UK breaks out.

    That is my plan. I plan to rush France and land in the Sinai to grab the suez ant the opening of hostilities. I also plan to attack Malta on day 1 of Italy's war entry.

    No British or French reaction? It would probably be good if the ENG/FRA AI guaranteed the independence of Spain, as it is highly unlikely that they would allow Italy to annex Spain without DOWing ITA or at least starting a massive rearmament program and adopting more interventionist policies.

    I carefully manage Italy's belligerence in order to keep France quiescent. From this point forward, I will only take Albania before WWII starts.

    Yeah, this is a good idea. It may make things more historical.

    Points are for bragging rights only and not redeemable for cash or merchandise of any sort. Great guess though. I figured most on this site would be to young to remember a movie out when I was in the 9th grade.
