Default Operation Newspaper

Operation Newspaper from The Space Gamer #74 looks super fun and I want to try it. Maps required are "GEV and Shockwave" so in current ODE terms thats G1, G2 and S1, S2?

Yes, that is correct.

William Hutton updated the scenario to ODE standards a couple of years back. That version is posted on our site here. Have fun!

The original Battlefields supplement in 2001 first introduced the new maps G2 and G3 (that geomorph in the same manner as the original G.E.V. map and now called "G1") and maps S2 and S3 (that geomorph in the same manner as the original Shockwave map and now called "S1").

To be absolutely clear, no. It's just G1 and S1, as the updated scenario Drew posted says.

@Wolf 90 Thanks for linking the updated version

@Bowser makes sense when explained that way.

To expand on what Bowser said, the original maps were single-piece, since they were paper with ~1/2" hexes. So (e.g.), the G2 map from Battlefields is G2N and G2S in ODE as the large maps had to be split into 2 pieces for size and weight reasons. So in ODE terms Operation Newspaper uses G1N, G1S, S1N and S1S.

As an aside, I love the fact that the split ODE maps actually increase the ways you can geomorph them by using just the S half of one and the N half of another, for a "standard" sized map that's totally "new"... :)

INTERESTING!! I just used that same config (with a few modifications ) for my event at Ucon. Pictures posted on FB. Never realized until now they were the same. Guess I'll need to play that scenario.

Yeah, this is a good example of old school crossing paths with new school. A full list of the original and what they are now is:

Original Name/Source -> New Name
Ogre -> O1 (ODE, 6th Ed)
G.E.V. -> G1(N/S) (ODE (mounted), Battle Box (paper))
Shockwave -> S1(N/S) (ODE)
Battlefields G2 -> G2(N/S) (ODE)
Battlefields S2 -> S2(N/S) (ODE)
Battlefields G3 -> G3(N/S) (pending Battlefields KS)
Battlefields S3 -> S3(N/S) (pending Battlefields KS)

and for completeness: the M* series have no prior source (well, except for Iron Mountain, but that was never a printed map before)
