Holy necromancy, Batman! I'm glad you're working on this again. I lurked this thread for ages last year.

One of the more noticeable problems with the Shadow President engine is that each and every single time an AI wins a war, they withdraw ALL its occupation forces and doesn't redeploy them. I do have a way of dealing with this problem however. What I do is use UGE to edit the "troops" file so that the AI will keep a number of troops in the country they defeated in battle. I am also willing to assist other players in dealing with this issue; all one has to do is email me with the attached saved game files so I can edit it and send it back. My email shall not be provided in the forum itself.

The issues with Shadow President's engine make me want to write some kind of DFhack styled thing that can be used to prevent them. Unfortunately, I know very little about the way SP works, and even less about coding. Oh well.

Since the scenario starts off with the Third World War underway, I am likely going to have an extra battle of two underway. Thus far one conflict will reverse the Ethiopia-Somalia conflict so that Somalia is the one being invaded by Ethiopia (Somalia forces were driven out of Ethiopia with Soviet help). Other possible battlefronts might include North Korea invading South Korea, Yugoslavia invading Albania, South Africa being invaded by Angola, Libya invading Chad, etc. I won't want to overwhelm the player so the larger Soviet invasions will not take place right away. Suggestions in this area are welcome.

For those of you worried, I have not cancelled Soviet Storm Rising at all; I was just taking an extended break. Expect updates soon!

Glad to see this thread is still here, I hope more work is still being done :) I stopped playing Shadow President for a couple years, but I'm back to it now :D

Btw, the link for the Korean War scenario is not working /:

No idea if we will ever get one. Experiment hasn't really been doing anything lately.
Edit: He hasn't even been online since 3 days after this last post.
