Flashpoint Campaigns receives a final update! And is on sale too!

Hello guys!
We are releasing a new version for Flashpoint Campaigns, you can read the changelog here:

- What’s New, Enhanced, or Fixed for 2.0.13
Here is a list of the items we worked on for this update with a brief summary of the changes in the game to this point. Please use the Matrix Tech Support Forum to report any problems with game play. Thanks and enjoy!

- New – Staff Alerts Tab in the TOC
For the second year in a row, we are adding a new feature from our Origins build into the game. This year it is the Staff Alerts Panel. This is a commander’s one stop shop to see what units have problems. Any unit seen on the list (Counter in area 1, Unit Designation in area 2, and Unit Composition in are 4)) has one or more of its Readiness, Morale, or Ammo stats below 50% (Attributes in area 3). If one of those factors is below 25% then
you get a red warning message (in area 5). Units raising alerts can also have other problems as shown in the Red Message area (area 5). This could be out of special ammo for artillery units, out of command range, insufficient transport (unit moving at leg speed and not IFV speed), and other conditions of concern.

- Enhanced – Enemy AI Movement Mode Selection
We adjusted the way the AI sets up it movement orders when planning. The AI will now choose to move via Deliberate Movement when 4km or greater from an objective area. This change improves the defensive posture of the moving units and slightly reduces the readiness hit compared to an Assault move.

- Fixed – Infinite Infantry ATGM Ammo
There was a bug in the code that allowed ATGM teams (Infantry only) to bypass an ammo check. This error leads to those units being able to have available ATGM rounds to use if their ammo level was okay.

- Fixed – Mechanized Unit Type Assignment
There was an odd bug in the code that would typecast certain mechanized units as leg infantry. This would lead to those units being less prone to launch attacks at range (A good thing for infantry in many cases). Everything works as intended now.

- Fixed – Unit Size Combat Modifier
While dealing with the bugs above, we found an old, deep bug with one of the unit size modifiers. This has been responsible for some of the overly hard to kill single units and in some cases the more brittle look of larger
formations. The outcome of combat is now back where it should be. This bug may also be responsible for the difficulty of some weapons to engage air and helicopter units properly. Be prepared for slightly more NATO losses
and slightly fewer Soviet losses in direct fire engagements.

- Fixed – VP Scoring at End Game
One of the last two updates broke the post-game VP scoring code. When the game ended by sudden death or end game selection, it was scoring the VP locations as they were at game end and not as calculated by end game
conditions. After much rework and testing, we now believe it all to be working as designed. If you choose to continue the game from the Sudden Death screen, the game will reset the VPs to the state they were in before
being scored.

Also, to celebrate this new release we are going to have a 50% discount on both Flashpoint Campaigns Red Storm and Germany Reforged, starting today, 7 PM CEST, until the 7th of September!

We hope you have a lof of fun with this new update!

Reviews

“It's years since I was so impressed by the rules and mechanisms underpinning hexagonal aggro.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Flashpoint Campaign: Red Storm is one of those games that manage to get almost everything right from the very moment they leave the gate.”
The Wargamer

“Flashpoint Campaigns : Red Storm brings a breath of fresh air in the field of wargame, either by topic covered or by the introduction of novel mechanisms.”
Historia Games (French)

Über dieses Spiel

You are the commander of either NATO or Soviet forces locked in battle on the ground in 1980’s Central Europe. As commander, it is your task to provide the battle plan orders to your units. You need to know your mission objectives, strength and weakness of both your forces and you enemy, lay of the land, weather, and time of day in order to come out on the winning end. Your crews will do their best to follow your orders and execute the plan, but in war, no plan survives first contact. You will need to think on the fly and adjust to the ever changing flow of battle.

This update to the game is being rebranded as the “Player’s Edition” as a big thank you to all players that made this game what it is now through feature suggestions, bug reports, and feedback from hours and hours of play. Our team is overwhelmed by the reception of the game and by the dedicated players we see on the forums. This update includes visual improvements, expanded multiplayer options as well as a better interface and combat logic, all based on your feedback!

We plan to continue updating the game engine and adding additional content with the next iteration of the system with Southern Storm. We will be working with even more of your feedback and suggestions as we move forward with that project and others.

Flashpoint Campaigns: Red Storm features an innovative asynchronous turn structure that models the OODA loop, huge maps, hundreds of meticulously researched platforms and weapons, detailed orders of battle, realistic modeling of modern combat including armor, infantry, helicopters, airpower and chemical and nuclear weapons, 2 campaigns and over 20 single scenarios, realistic weather conditions, modding options and much more!

After the end of World War II, Europe spent years recovering from the losses and the terrible consequences of the conflict. A whole continent found itself divided into two blocs: one lead by the United States with NATO among its allies in the Western bloc, and in the Eastern bloc lead by the Soviet Union along with the Warsaw Pact. Separating the two, an “Iron Curtain” formed of high walls and minefields as well as hundreds of thousands of well armed troops. This was the Cold War, a forty year state of political and military tension between two superpowers that several times came close to starting World War III. While the world survived the Cold War, the effects of the “long twilight struggle” still echo in the geopolitics and military technology and tactics of the present day.

In Flashpoint Campaigns: Red Storm, World War Three has started, the Cold War has turned hot. Do you have what it takes to achieve victory on the battlefield or will the world end with all out nuclear war?

FEATURES

  • Includes 20+ Scenarios featuring the three NATO forces versus the Soviets.
  • Four Campaign games where you manage your core force through a number of battles.
  • A crafty AI opponent looking to achieve its mission goals or deny you yours.
  • You get 20+ game maps based on real world terrain of Central Europe.
  • Variable length turns based on current Command, Control and Communication state (C3) of forces. Unit losses and the level of electronic warfare impact you and your enemys C3 state.
  • A new and refined combat engine taking into account many factors with weather, sensors, terrain, and troop capability factored in.
  • Detailed information before, during and after a scenario to keep you informed and aware of the state of your forces.
  • Platforms and weapons from the decade of the 80s for US, UK, West German and Soviet forces including aircraft (various types and loadouts), helicopters (various types and loadouts), tanks, APCs, Self-Propelled Systems (Gun, Anti-tank, Flak, and SAMs), towed guns, trucks ,jeeps, and of course the grunts with their vast array of weapons.
  • Built-in editors for Map Parameters, Scenario Creation/Editing, and Campaign Creation/Editing. The game was built around having a very large 3rd party following to supplement our planned expansions to the game.
  • Mod friendly design allows for the ability of players to tweak/create/replace many of the default graphics (unit images, badges, map markers and maps), sounds (verbal, movement and combat) and data elements (Units/Weapons/OOB Formations/National Ratings) using common 3rd party software.

Additional Features
  • Recon units are given a more important role with the new game engine. They can see further than normal units and are harder to spot by other units. This makes having eyes on the enemy important and blinding the enemy a top priority.
  • Dynamic Weather affects weapons and sensors during the battle. Rain and wind degrade thermal systems. Some aircraft and helicopters can’t fly in bad weather or the dark.
  • Active FOW system. The fog of war (FOW) will require units to see and identify the enemy. Sometimes they report back incorrect or incomplete intel.
  • Artillery Systems can fire a plethora of ammo types including HE, Smoke, Mines, and ICM (to name a few).
  • NBC warfare is also on the table with strategic platforms like surface to surface missiles with nuclear or chemical warheads. They pack a punch, but using them comes with a cost.
  • Simple Windows style interface. Menus, right click menus, hot keys, hints and dialogs keep you informed and in control of your forces.
  • Many setting to adjust the realism to suit beginners and grognards alike.
  • Game engine has a number of anti-cheat mechanisms in place to make sure multiplayer games are using the same scenario and associated data.
  • The game features an improved infantry model, engineering functions (abstracted, but includes blowing bridges, bridging rivers, clearing mines and obstacles) and the ability to resubordinate units to fit your battle plan.
  • Dedicated development team that continues to add new content to the game.
