Post by Harmony Ltd. on Sun Apr 28, 2013 6:53 pm

Game's site : http://www.supremerulercoldwar.com/
Its forum : http://www.bgforums.com/forums/


So, here's the deal...

This will be a modded game. More exactly, I'll be playing the "Modern World" scenario, made by this guy.

I will be played as, you guessed it (maybe).... France.


Starting date is February 24 of 2012.


Let's do this. More as it comes.

Yeah, sorry, this just isn't doing it for me. The game just acts in a way that's so retarded that it's impossible to form any coherent storyline, forcing me to adopt a format that just isn't any FUN to read or write.


So, this thread is CANCELED.

You had an interest in it ?

Edit : I mean, basically, it's just me stating the major facts of the game as it happens. Nothing really interesting.

I get very little from text lets plays... I prefer videos.

Well, unless they're essentially a complete re-imagining of the game, like several of the ones on http://lparchive.org/. Makes it cool to see how the storyline can be warped while most everything remains the same. Having never played Supreme Ruler, this isn't doing it for me :P

Well, it's kind of a sandbox game, so there isn't any kind of storyline to begin with.

And I could take screenshots, but it wouldn't help much - you have to play with filters on the map and navigate the menus to extract all the relevant informations.

The only moment it becomes interesting is when going to war, but even then it's not really that interesting.

And that game just isn't cut to do video records of it - it's mostly dead times.


So, yeah.

@ Swicked : Well, that -is- a well known fact Spike

@ Moody : the problem is that to make a good let's play takes effort and planning ahead. And this sound awfully like work.

Like, to be honest if I were to do streams this would be good material.

But sadly I don't have the bandwidth for that.

And that's the same reason why I can't upload videos. Scootaloo

Yeah, you do have a point. And I guess it would take more effort for a game like this.

My X-Com Let's Play I have on the site, that I will be getting back to eventually this summer, would probably benefit from some more pre-planning rather then what I was doing. Which was play the game for about three or so missions and type up what had happen in personal report type manner.

OKay, I'll be trying to run a little experiment.

This time, a modded Sandbox game : "State of the Unions"

Playing as Europe.


---------------------------------


Well, first thing first....

Image_1 : Europe

Europe is rich. Really fucking rich. I mean, mind-blowingly so : you can heat yourself by burning cash. It has also a fucking HUGE military capability, starting with 113 "factories" (each factory being able to build one unit at a time) for its ground units, 37 seven for its air units and 43 for its naval units.

It also has a fucking huge R&D potential, as it starts with more than 20 R&D centers, each center opening one slot to research a technology. So this mean I can research that many different technologies concurrently.

Surprisingly enough, it also has a number of untapped natural resources. And its industry is powerful.

So, yeah... this won't be a hard playthrough.


On the other hand, Europe is bordered on the east by the Eurasian Union, and on the the south by the Arab Union. Two powers which it has really... cold relations with. So that's going to be interesting.



The game begin with everyone at peace, though Panama has become a Dictatorship and allied with the Eurasian Union (the fools).

It takes almost one hour to setup everything : unit production queues, research queue, construction orders to start exploiting new resources...

To replace aging military hardware, I give the order to build M2-Puma IFVs, Leopard-2A6 MBTs and some artillery and air defense batteries, on continuous production, and tell them to stay in reserve as long as I won't ask for them to be mobilized : I want to replace hardware, not to mobilize more men.

I also give the orders to build a FUCKING LOT of Eurofighter Typhoon - they'll be the workhorse of my airforce for a while.

As for the navy, I've given the order to expand our amphibious capabilities, and to build at least 3 more nuclear supercarriers of the Charles de Gaulles class. Plus a bunch of Cruisers/Destroyers/Frigates, and also a respectable number of attack submarines.


So, I'm allied with Turkey. Only a few days in, and Iran declare war to Turkey.

Oh joy. Let's have a bit of fun with our army, shall we ?

Having 100% casus belli against Iran, I declare war.


(to be continued)
