  1. There is certainly room for tank on tank battles. There weren't many for the US vs NVA but there definitely enough to make more than a few scenarios over the course of the entire war such as Ben Het. For the ARVN vs NVA armour, lots of mixed tank on tank. Just need some PT76 and M48 to add to the mix.
  2. I am late to the party. But I brought up a similar topic back in 2011 with my little "single guy" campaign. And ran into the same things like requiring restarts to actually to get 1 guy. Then in the second battle the troops would lose their primary team weapon. But, if the morale was set to Fanatic and the leadership 2+, actually all attributes maxed out so you could get the guys to move, it was fun in a Sgt Fury Howling Commando way.
  3. If it was HE then that is entirely possible.
  4. Regret my Samsung 32" 60Hz 4ms Curved PLS LED Monitor (LC32F391FWNXZA). After 1 year, lots of stuck red pixels showing. Tried all the tech advice remedies. No joy.
  5. Scripting syntax is pretty much the same for all high level languages , and many people would be able to jump right in. But for people who have no experience it is not really a problem either. Just having a couple pages of example scripts to use, or paste can get you started. Community feed back to help with the debug issues would bring people up to speed to tackle a scenario. A hybrid system would be awesome too. The Precanned scripts in CM2 work fairly well, the immediate shortcoming being the commands are linear, and lack branching (OR) conditional statements, looping etc. Having larger selections of AI commands, perhaps layered would be a good alternative for the next gen
  6. Some inspiration for the mod: Its all about the maroon beret.
  7. Interesting, because I've never changed my color settings, they were set to North American 2 which is sRGB1996 and uses the color spacing I am pretty much accustomed to looking at. I changed to adobe RGB1998 had a look, and what popped out to me were the reds. Color spacing changes are very much a function of vibrance (or it is the product of). And I incorrectly went straight to the hue and saturation to tweak but no its actually vibrance. If things don't look right and its a color spacing issue in the game view, try a little tweak with vibrance.
  8. Corporate espionage sanctioned by a competitor perhaps
  9. At this point (In time). The draft was not enacted until March 1863. Prior to this it was a volunteer Army up until, and at the time of the proclamation. However, saying all was a bad choice in words because it excluded the questionable practice of pressing criminals, and immigrants into service. Speaking of press gangs it looks like your thread got pretty well shanghaied.
  10. I'm probably on the same page as you. A possible reason why the door is left open for re branding is because the beginning of the war: 1861-1862 gets skewed, skipped, glossed over, or just plain fast-forwarded straight to the Battle of Antietam, and then the emancipation proclamation in 1863. Going back to the beginning: The expansion of slavery is ceased for any new state (west) entering the union. Policies are set in motion to phase it out everywhere else in time. Now 11 states seceded. Yes the American Civil war was very much about slavery. Did the union go to war for the reason of freeing the slaves in the south? No, well not initially, the south was winning battles in the beginning. The union even looked for a compromise. Remember Lincoln did not want to interfere with the institution of slavery as he initially stated at his inauguration. There was a push to appease the border states and even pro slavery democrats in the North were appointed. So who freed the slaves? I suppose General Fremont gets initial credit for this in August 1861, he declared martial law in Missouri and freed the slaves there... But Lincoln removed him from command and modified his order. So the poor slaves are not free anymore. Again, it was the big fear of tipping neutral states to the Confederacy. These were the dynamics of the time, which explain so many things. Once the union started gaining momentum, the neutral states became irrelevant. Enter January 1863: The emancipation proclamation. Remember all soldiers were volunteers, and it was at this point they were fighting in support of this.
  11. If you are referring to the American Civil War then I am inclined to agree I find American history textbooks uncomfortably subjective (to put it mildly) regarding this subject.
  12. The exception to this is with broken troops in buildings I think. They tend to stay put and can manage to fire back.
  13. When the Huertgen took place the US army had a very efficient system of requesitioning replacements similar to replacing lost material. As a result the full picture was not initially recognized, meanwhile Frontline troops became greener as casualties mounted.
