We are extremely pleased to report that the General Staff Army Design Module has now completed Beta Test and we are moving on to sending out the Map Design Module to our valiant Beta Testers!

The Army Design Module allows users to easily create new army Order of Battle Tables that, when combined with a map and another army, become battle scenarios that can be played in the General Staff Wargaming System.
The Army Design Module is Ready for Beta Testing and we’re adding the in-app help files now! This is pretty exciting and we hope to be rolling out the next modules (Map Design and Scenario Editor) very quickly as they are almost completed, too. After over a year of hard work General Staff is becoming a reality!

Even though it was fun to create, the YouTube video of the Order of Battle Table / Create Army Module for General Staff doesn’t have high enough resolution tho show the clear, sharp screen images that do it justice. Below are a couple of screen captures from the section of General Staff that allows users to create their own armies. We will next work on the Create Maps Module that allow users to design their own battlefields.

We’ve dug back into the original Pathe news archives to find this old movie reel describing the new Order of Battle Table Creation / Create Army Module for General Staff. We hope you enjoy this treasure from the past!
