    How to use the Dutch

    I have the first two PVR'd for the holidays. Looking forward to watching them again. 🤗

    A Couple of Ques From Potential New Player

    Not this cat... the AI is just fine for me, my reasoning is real life time allocation. However, PBEM is also lots of fun, my turn rate for a human opponent is not up to par usually, hence why I don't hook up with others much.

    Vehicle Immobilization

    Brillant use. I have read many accounts of just such scouting excursions, especially by the German tank commanders. Use it myself regularly and is not gamey at all. I would say that if you lose a vehicle to bogging, well I am going to put the crew to use for other purposes. What? The war is over for them because their vehicle is broken down and they have weapons?? Really??? F that!
  5. Still using Win 7 on my workstation and gaming laptop... Purring right along.

    First Time CM Player Impressions

    I mentioned this several years ago, might as well mention it again... This is so much easier nowadays compared to my old wargame table days, using a homemade (paper towel roll and angled mirrors) reverse periscope to get the idea of their field of vision. 🙂

    Better Load Times

    Mods... the amount and types of mods, eventually installed, slow load times no? I actually have never found it to be an issue for me with the other titles. Besides, it's worth the wait for those that do. 🙂

    Concept: Forum Operational Campaign

    For what it's worth, there is a CMBB version as well. If you can't get the files or you don't want to sign up, I could dropbox them for you? Up to you.

    Concept: Forum Operational Campaign

    +1 for the idea. I recently posted this link in another thread for RobO's Quick Campaign Generator (ROQC) http://cmx1mods.greenasjade.net/mods?author_id=20&game_type=2 which was used in the CMx1 series of games for "quick campaign generation". It would be great if some Excel wiz could figure out how to make some of this work for CMx2. Loved this with CMx1. Some stuff might be useful though for this endeavour not sure, maybe record keeping or something??
  10. Ouch...! Lol sounds like someone yells out an F bomb after the incident.

    Mord's Mods: Red Thunder Edition

    Came across these images at this web site: http://galaxykits.com/instructions/instruction/3444/german_tank_crew_at_rest when I was looking for image refs for 3d model creation. Thought you might find them interesting if you have not seen already.

    Until we get Stalingrad digitally!

    Just may Inspire me to try and do this within the 3D realm (3ds Max /Zbrush /Photoshop). Could even be 3d printed. Rubble and ruins are always fun to try and recreate in 3d, for me anyways. That thread would be an obvious ref. Link appreciated.

    BFC leads & Matrix follows on DOD Use

    Great replacement for Harpoon. Actually, CMANO is Harpoon on steroids. Got it a few years ago at an over half price sale on Steam. Worth full price though imo.
  14. I just used it against the AI and had a blast. Finished battles in a session or two sometimes a lot longer, depending on the size of the size of my core units obviously.
