The Vietnam War (1963-1975): Great historical full-function scenario of the American war in Vietnam 1963 - 1975, with other possible outcomes to certain events. Many rivers, monsoons, jungles and VC guerrilla attacks. Best played with aggressive AI settings. Start out in 1963 with the Diem and Kennedy assassinations and precede though the many Vietnam era events from the Gulf of Tonkin incident to past the S.A.L.T. treaty in 1975. Nuclear tensions are high with USA, Soviets and China while Laos, Cambodia, Taiwan, and Korea battle with communism. Besides the Vietnam War, Vietnam offers other possible regional conflicts such as another Korean War (technically they are still at war today), the Soviet-China conflict, Malaysia-Indonesian conflict and a China-Taiwan conflict. It also has civil wars in Cambodia and Laos with the Khmer Rouge and Pathet Lao in the shaping of governments which could allow attacks within their neutral territories.

3rd Indochina War (1979-1988): This historical war continues from where the Vietnam left off. It starts out in 1979 with the Vietnam invasion of Democratic Kampuchea that escalates into the brief Sino-Vietnam war with China. Heated battles between Thailand and Vietnam over the harboring of the Khmer Rouge flair up threatening a strong possibility of a full scale war.

A fictional war, called the Indian War, then develops from the 3rd Indochina war involving India, Burma, North Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Afghanistan and Pakistan. A full scale war did develop between Thailand and Vietnam and ended in a coup of Thailand. Vietnam/Thailand then form a pact with Afghanistan and Pakistan to split up India. The pact ends up very similar to the Nazi/Soviet pact outcome. This fictional war showcases the modified counties (Fun Scenario!). Best played with aggressive AI settings.

Afghan Wars (1988 - 2003): Finally, the best full-function scenario for the last. If you think you mastered the previous wars, then it's time to test your true skills. Start out in 1988 and proceed though the historical Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan, PDPA collapse, tribal warlords anarchy, Taliban period events and September 11th attacks to past the 2003 USA invasion of Iraq. Includes all 3 Iraq wars, conflicts in Chechnya, Kurdistan, Somalia, Kashmir, Lebanon/Syria, Ethiopia/Eritrean, Nagorno-Karabakh War and Yemen. Best played with aggressive AI settings. Playable countries: Afghanistan, USSR, PDPA, USA, UK, Saudi Arabia, Pashtun mujahiddin, Pakistan, Iraq, Iran, Hezbe, Jamiet and Al Qaeda. NATO troops are represented. Also included are Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Georgia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Armenia, China, India, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Yemen, Kuwait, Kashmir, Kurdistan, Somalia, Sudan, Lebanon, Israel, Egypt, Palestine, Ethiopia and Eritrean. The PDPA (Peoples Democratic Party of Afghanistan) later becomes the Northern Alliance and the Pashtun mujahiddin later becomes the Taliban in 1994. This way, you can play the whole scenario as one of these countries.

Hundreds of new events: There are changes or additions to some config, db, minister, leader and tech files. All VietAfghan scenarios have new ministers and leaders. New graphics were added for new units, ministers, leaders, technology and events. A few counters, flags and shields were added. New AI files for all countries involved were added. Mountain and jungle warfare is enhanced. A few other files are modified. All core scenario.eug files were modified to allow for the new provinces and events. The new units are cold and post-cold war units which are towards the end of the respective technology trees. It will take a long time to research in scenarios prior to 1960 and the corresponding secret weapon technology must be activated first in the secret weapons file before they can be researched.

Installation: Made vanilla friendly for AOD v1.5 meaning all the core campaigns and scenarios remain playable with new map. And should work with past and future versions with the correct patch. Unzip files to AOD top-level directory after all game updates have been installed (important!). Back up is recommended! May not be 100% compatible with other versions or mods.

1. If you want to keep the true vanilla in tact, just make a copy of the whole original game folder (ie C:/program files/paradox interactive/AOD) to another location.
2. Install any Paradox updates and patches before VietAfghan if you haven't already. These updates and patches are required for VietAfghan. They need to be installed before the VietAfghan files and patches.
3. Download VietAfghan and the optional soundtrack files. These VietAfghan zip files are in directory structure, so make sure that your unzip program is set to 'use folders' when unzipping. By doing this, all the files will overwrite the correct directories.
4. Locate the root (top level) directory of your game location. For example C:/program files/paradox interactive/AOD or the root of the copy you just made.
5. Unzip (extract to) each file to this root directory. If it doesn't prompt you to overwrite the directories and a few files then something is wrong and start over. Proceed with overwriting the files.
6. Install the optional soundtracks to your root directory like before.
7. For versions 1.4 and 1.6 and above, the correct patch must be installed after everything else like above.
8. Make sure to set the 'end date' to "use scenario information" in your Scenario Options for scenarios past 1964.

Note: With the additional provinces, any future scenario which includes the whole map may show an error, but is still playable. This can be fixed by adding the new provinces (see VAmap.txt for list) to owned and controlled provinces of france.inc, for example, or other country files. All core campaigns and scenarios are already fixed for the new map. (Paradox Interactive forum members can get an unregistered free download link by email by messaging FRVP)
