    The Truelife* Mode PBEM DAR

    Nice map but she needs the sharks teeth road removal treatment real bad!

    Daraya Tank Raid SF2

    Sorry, missed this. In spite of my semi-regular Forum participation, my actual gaming is near zero for work reasons. Please go ahead and upload any of my works to GaJ's site as you like; happy any of this stuff is getting use. Cheers, LLF
  3. I resemble that remark! I found myself wondering what that Green Zone would be like to fight through in the wet season, when all those barren watercourses and surrounding fields are inundated (presumably with snowmelt). Also, nice map @puje! Very realistic topography. I can smell the goat dung from here.

    Afghanistan Mod Pack

    One of my favourite features of @Mord's mixed mods from SF1 was that it mixed masked and unmasked (Spy) figures, making local fedayeen look more authentic. They aren't always faceless headchoppers, after all.
  5. You could also consider decreasing the ambushed units' Fitness level to reflect stress, dehydration etc., as opposed to Morale and Experience. That also encourages them to hunker down and defend themselves until relieved, as opposed to engaging in strenuous and complex manouevres, or rabbiting around in a panic.

    New Scenario: Coup D'etat

    Lol! can ya smell the immersion now swee'pea? I am so happy that my ~1000 man hours of mapmaking is paying off as intended!

    BLUE and RED on the same side?

    Nope, I'll buy CMSF2 either: (a) as a reward when they add in non-modular buildings (b) once work gives me time to play (by which I mean design scenarios). No idea when that will be. In the meantime, what little bits of time I can spare go into Le Carillon. And that's precious little of late.

    BLUE and RED on the same side?

    In CMSF1 Syrian SoF were part of the base game. My Baba Amr scenario used them, and needed base game only. Syrian Airborne was part of the Brits module (which I never bought).

    MOUT and urban counterinsurgency (and CM)

    Ramones: As what red blooded human does not? My 2012 Baba Amr map, derived from a section of Ramadi, might make a more suitable starting point. But to narrow many streets to alleys, model medieval and modern tenements, etc., we'd really need the non-modular building types, including the shed and heavy (cathedral) buildings which BFC was unable to include in CMSF2.

    MOUT and urban counterinsurgency (and CM)

    Re Mosul map: You're a better man than I, Gunga Din. Here, give this a spin while you go mad: As for the rest, the notion of polymath elite operators directing local forces is not the least bit new, as you know (see Rogers Rangers and their French equivalents, plus the enterprising agents of the various proto-colonial merchant Companies). It is of course the correct answer from a purely military COIN "find em and grind em" perspective, not to mention economical. But America's Best also wind up neck deep in day to day police brutality, extortion, arbitrary murder, sectarian and tribal vendettas, torture and other kinds of third world business as usual, including but not limited to: narcotics, chattel slavery, salary skimming, no-bid contracts, tax evasion and good old fashioned political corruption at all levels and touching most forms of commerce (ref. tribal vendettas). Changing political winds, unhappy accidents and a wired world will thus periodically expose them to, among other things: the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (a law written so broadly as to make pretty much any American deriving foreign source income convictable at will), possibly RICO as well, and of course the IRS, business being global. Plus the various mainly European human rights courts; and who knows what the Asians may come up with. Pandora, please pick up the white courtesy box....

    WW2, probably doable. Middle East.... ummm.

    MOUT and urban counterinsurgency (and CM)

    This thread keeps wandering OT (not overly concerned about that), so this digital reconstruction of ancient Knossos is pretty cool.... Got me wondering about how one might map a playable urban battlespace in a labyrinthine premodern "Old Town" area: e.g. Mosul Old City, Algiers, any number of hill towns or favelas in Italy, Syria, Afghanistan. Start with steep hillsides and see how you go, at a guess. Outdoor stairways would be an interesting mod. One could probably do quite a bit of clever stuff with bridges as well.... Leave the AFVs at home entirely, due to the unreal gun elevations and narrow alleyways.

    My Wish List for Modern CM4 titles

    Alas, poor OP. I knew him well.... P.S. If once you pay the Danegeld, you will never be rid of the Dane.
