Friends,

In an effort to inspire more people to write scenarios for Harpoon, especially H3/ANW and the HUD-4 database, I've put together a random generation scenario design system and posted it on Harpgamer. Enjoy!

You forgot the most important first step:

Select a database that actually works. Unfortunately, that precludes the HUD4.

I see that you still haven't solved this problem:

A new scenario has been posted, my second of the year...

http://harpgamer.com/harpforum/index...ern-gulf-1982/

Enjoy! (And be sure to download the newest version of the HUD-4, updated only a few days ago, as that's the one for which it was written. The new release of the HUD-4 includes fixes for various issues.)

I have added a bunch of scenarios since I have last been on this forum. Here is the link for one for one of them...

http://harpgamer.com/harpforum/index...ubrovnik-2018/

The scenario is set during a brief conflict between Greece and Albania. The screenshot shows the Greek convoy that must make its way to Dubrovnik.

Here's another screenshot, showing a Greek ship firing on a hostile vessel...

(By the way, I have no idea what Herman is saying because he is on my Ignore list now. There simply does not seem to be any purpose to further conversation with him. I like the HUD-4 and I write scenarios with it because I happen to enjoy it. That's really all there is. When I think I've put together one that works and is fun, I post it because I see no reason not to share it with people. I hope they enjoy it, too. However, I would like to apologize again for having quarreled with him on this forum--you guys should not have to waste your time reading junk like that. From now on, I'm just going to focus on Harpoon. Herman can do what he wants.)

Too bad that the weapons will never hit their targets

Another scenario...

http://harpgamer.com/harpforum/index...f-bissau-1981/

(Oh, and remember to set Aircraft Logistics to "on"--I always design my scenarios with the assumption that the good guys do not have an infinite supply of ammunition, etc.)

Here is a screen shot...

Logistics ON or OFF is irrelevant with the HUD when the weapons simply do not fire:

Another link, the newest update to the HUD-4 database (April 1, 2013). Gunny (the database editor) is currently converting the information in the database to new standards provided by AGSI and Larry Bond. He is also addressing issues as they are reported (only a couple of stubborn bugs remain at this point...not bad for a database with about two thousand aircraft, ships, and subs) and adding new platforms as time allows.

http://harpgamer.com/harpforum/index...780-hud4-v111/

A new version should be posted around April 28th.

There are a number of excellent third party databases available for Harpoon, but the HUD-4 is now the official one for ANW, and probably the one closest to Larry Bond's vision of what Harpoon should be.

Just tried it and see that the usual problems have not been addressed:

Operation Blue DogHouse



Then, I realized the date: April 1 2013 Good April Fool's joke! You got me. Happy April Fool's Day to you, too.

Another scenario...a nice little Cold War submarine duel...

http://harpgamer.com/harpforum/index...-quartet-1983/

Enjoy!

No, seriously. That's the whole point. Fun. Whatever databases you like, play the game, tell folks how you did with a particular scenario, write your own scenarios, share them, talk about them, and have a good time. That's what matters.

I've started work on a new scenario, this one involving an American carrier battle group facing an alliance of Iran and Pakistan. Here is a screenshot of the area moments before action begins...
