"Just curiosity, why this NCP revival when NCP2 is being created and with a different engine? "
I had started something about a real 1815 Campaign in August 2010 and started working on it every friday afternoon when i stopped, for the Marengo-Hohenlinden, i had bought the Osprey about Marengo and Marengo-Hohenlinden Campaign by James Arnold, i already had a special issue by Tradition Mag and somebody, i think Nikel post Nafzinger links at this time.
The new game will certainly start or at least this is what i believe in 1805, i think, it is too bad that some scenarios would not be done especially the Egyptian campaign whereas the map is done. Perhaps somebody will work on it.
I didn't read anywhere that NCP wouldn't be sold by Ageod anymore, the new game being a Campaign whereas NCP was about individuals campaigns.
And yes the fact that Bohemond and Lodilefty and other players still worked on it motivated me to keep up the work started some time ago.
Moreover reading, finding old books or other informations on a scenario/Army/soldiers is sometime a very long process.
When an US bordgame player send me the work (8 vol)of the Austrian staff between 1896 or so to 1914 (and thus is not finished) about the War of Austrian Succession, it was a fantastic tool to do some scenarios between 1741 and 1744.
When i found an website about the Saxon Rgts in the 1730s done by Vlad Gromoboi, i contacted him and he send me informations about the Polish armies in 1734-1735 and where to find some memories of German Generals in Russian service that are very useful
He also worked on the Russian army, his work being on the Nec Pluribus Impar, a website about warfare between the 1690 to 1760s.
I have also a good friend Vincent Trichet, a Great Napoleonic fan and figurinist which helped me often for anything Napoleonic...
The main problem after a release is that any of us would like to have more, have plenty of ideas ...that others
will hopefully do. After a few month nothing is done and sometimes you have to go, this is what Pocus and Philtib explained to me to encourage me when i was doing the Russo-Japanese OOB, i thought i would be overwhelmed but in the end i did it !
Today, there is still plenty of scenarios that i would like to do or finished, and sure after the release of Ageod's AJE, i will certainly look at my books/Mag to see if something can be done with my knowledge of a particular campaign.
Fortunately there is plenty of people here to help and encourage and thus it helps a lot.
