  1. Thank you, Falaise. This was one of the few things I didn't like in the editor too. Great find!
  2. So will you post this mod somewhere, Falaise?

    Panic! Battle Fatigue in WWII

    Interesting thread. Personally I think most people/soldiers kill out of love for what/who they hold dear and want to preserve/protect, sooner than just an instinct or skill to kill.

    Let's hope not pension wise....

    Update on Engine 4 patches

    Well said. Personally I still love the graphics and I don't know any games that even come close to CM, let alone have better graphics. If CM2 would not exist, I wouldn't be playing other wargames, but would still be playing CM1. CM is a rare breed and there's simply nothing to replace or succeed it. The current rate of production worries me though, but let's hope that's going to change this year. I'm 55 now and I hope to be able to play CM for another 55 years.

    Command Ops gives you the base game for FREE, including several great scenarios. The DLC is worth every penny. The small but active community also produces nice scenarios (about Caen for instance) and mods for free. It's a great game with lots of potential (perhaps Eastern front in the future). I also don't get what you say about repaying. Doesn't make sense to me.

    2019 Reporting For Duty

    Yeah, Benpark, why don't you? Instead of giving away likes for silly comments. After all the waiting we would like to see a decent bone instead of yet another tiny bone fragment covered with some riddles.

    2019 Reporting For Duty

    With regard to a pack for CMRT. I'd say forget the Hungarians and Romanians and chose the Finns. I loved them in CMBB. Amount of work is doable and also the terrain/buildings won't cause too much trouble.

    Happy Festivus!

    Okay, time for the New Year's bone.

    Wisdom. Thanks for the whole quote.

    I like that quote. Short and powerful.
  12. Great post, Sublime. Merry Christmas and all the best for 2019. And to Lethaface: well done, mate.

    Not playing CM because of a couple of bugs is just silly, guys. You're missing out on a lot of gaming fun.

    Tall hedge for CMRT

    I've noticed there's no tall hedge available in the editor for CMRT. Is there a chance to see that in the coming module perhaps?

    Tall hedge for CMRT

    Yeah, that explains a couple of things.

    Sorry, I meant: perhaps someone else can set them straight.

    Tall hedge for CMRT

    At the Wargamer site they've posted a list with the most "essential" Eastern Front games. CMRT is not among them. Really made my blood boil. It's by far the best Eastern Front game and they haven't even mention it. Two conclusions. Wargamer sucks 🙂 and CM must do more to get attention for CMRT. A hefty Christmas bone would be a good start. P.s. for some reason I can't log in to Wargamer, perhaps somebody who can can set them straight.

    Tall hedge for CMRT

    I assume you don't mean that too literally and we are already beyond the planning stage. Would love to hear some more details about the module.
  19. Looks very cool, Mord!
  20. Did anyone ever make a Taliban mod? I guess not, since I can't find it, but perhaps I'm wrong. Is there a Taliban mod available?

    How to use the Dutch

    I especially love the CV9035. Tremendous firepower and it can take quite a beating too.

    How to use the Dutch

    I was also refering to the movie, guys. 😀 After that hilarious remark you can hear Goldmember say; 'Wat?' His dutch accent is spot on btw.

    10 Myths about Afghanistan article

    Like in every conflict there are many factors that complicate matters. I've already mentioned the atmosphere of corruption, which made billions of western help disappear into thin air. Internal division (between Pashtoe and Tadzjik for instance), the destructive influence of countries like Pakistan, Russia and Iran, the stubborn reluctance of the average Afghan to accept foreign (especially non-moslim) presence and advice, Western naivity and indecision, the greed of (not only western!) companies to share in the booty are some ot the other factors. Compared to Afghanistan to make an end to the endless conflict in Northern Ireland was a breeze. I've heard the argument about the West stealing Afghan resources before and from many people, mostly Afghans. There is some truth in it, but it originates mostly from frustration, fake news from the usual sources and reluctance to admit that if you put two Afghans from different backgrounds together you've got the making of a civil war. They are great and proud people, but not the easiest to deal with. Every fair minded Afghan will confirm the above. It is a huge tragedy and especially the Afghan women and children deserve better.
