They Came From The Lua Script

So, now that I’ve gotten a reveal of one of my least favorite scenario works out of the way, I can move on to happier stuff. One of my scenarios I feel the most admiration for is They Came From The Museum. Now I can reveal the making of it. _ _ _ _ The […]

The Terrible Secret of Myanmar Defense Revealed

Happy New Year, Baloogan Campaign readers. As a New Years resolution, I vowed to post about the “making of” some of my favorite Command creations. Or, in this case, my least favorite Command creation. Now, I like bad things. I like reading bad things, like the the niche cult mess of the NFL SuperPro. I’ve […]

The Oddly Versatile Nation-Egypt

So, I’m doing some of my usual Command scenario editor fooling around, looking at orders of battle, and I see a country that somehow fits the bill for many kinds of Command scenarios without too many forced contrivances. This was confirmed by me playing the community scenario The King’s Hand, which actually features the country in question […]

So, in my innumerable Command editor forays and bits of research for the waves of scenarios I never expect to actually make in full, I’ve found one year where I view the most interesting, novel alternate history scenarios as no longer being possible. 1965. It’s a pretty sudden cutoff. I think the two big reasons […]

Don’t be Afraid to Invent New Bad Guys

I came across this post from Aivlis who posted this excellent post on the Command Matrix Forum’s Options for Black Sea Conflict thread.  The one thing that I notice in a lot of the “Cold War 2.0” scenarios is a disregard for believable strategy or goals on the Russian side, which is also invariably the antagonist. People like to […]

Platforms That Never Were: F-19

The F-19 is one of the most unusual hypothetical platforms in Command. Other such units are based off clear design specifications, while the F-19 is based off a mix of a misconception, a model, and a fiction book. The F-19 designation has been controversial from the start, as it was skipped over, from the F/A-18, […]
