About This File
A companion mod to Operation Nordic Storm (Nordic Storm is not required to play this). This is a pack of 19 single missions designed and written to form a slightly branching campaign experience with the aid of an included briefing book to guide you through the process. I've been frustrated by SF2's campaign mechanism and wanted to put out mission packs that tell a bit more story and are a bit more immersive in nature, rather than letting the game's campaign code just generate mission after mission with no real sense of continuity or panache.
The mission pack is basically the land war happening in Germany before, during, and slightly after the events of Operation Nordic Storm. It's still WWIII in Europe, essentially, set in 1991. The premise is based on Tom Clancy's "Red Storm Rising", and although it doesn't follow it exactly, much of the scenario driven verbage in the briefing book will be familiar to fans of the novel.
A full explanation of all facets of the mod is included in the 'README first!' file in the zip file. That is the place to start for a full description of the mission pack, as well as information on required and recommended mods needed to play. None of the required mods were altered in any way by me, and all credit and kudos go to the mod authors for their work.
The War Plan Tripwire Briefing Book is included in the zip file in .pdf format. You'll need adobe acrobat reader in order to use the briefing book- I don't expect that will be a big issue for anyone here. The briefing book is what allows you to play a string of 'single missions' as a branching 'campaign,' as well as go beyond the game's often-simplistic definitions of success and failure for various mission types. A full explanation on the use and purpose of the briefing book is included in the WPT README file.
Upcoming projects similar to this one will include a short conflict fought between China and Japan over some territorial rights, and a fictional future conflict involving the US and an Iran deeply in cahoots with the Russians. Enjoy!
