    Invisibility cloak--real

    This happens to the weather girl every time she wears blue, or is it green. Anyway there is a blue screen involved.
  2. Graphically I wouldn't think so. Its just a texture with an alpha layer allowing only the wire to be visible. It could just as easily be a flat wooden fence. Neither of which would be graphic processor taxing.
  3. Yes 4CMBG. The expendable brigade. Where leopard 1's were king and blowpipes worked better than they really did. (My first posting, and we all read First Clash. We figured we were only meant to last 48 hours because the beer would be gone by then ) The question though is what year for Fulda gap.

    Apple deprecates OpenGL

    Apple would never concede an inch to PC. They also never support a product that they perceive will compete against themselves. Its likely they are looking at the new Metal platform. I feel an Apple IIGS rage coming on....Arghh! About 30 years ago the Apple IIGS came out, best computer at the time fully backwards compatible with Apple II and used new OS and even 3.5 disks. Apple cut production and support after 2 years. Imagine owning a $3500 boat anchor in 1988. The reason: Apple thought it competed against their own Macintosh. In reality the majority of GS owners moved on to x286 PC's. That's Apple great now my skin is turning green and my shirt is ripped.
  5. Hiding could be avoiding any form of exhaust signature as welI. In RL turning over a tank engine or reving especially a diesel could result in a plume above the trees.
  6. @Hardradi can you confirm in your option settings that you have 3D set to best. This not only affects how things visually appear but also how many textures are loaded into the pregame cache. Fastest settings load only texture 1 and 2 to save virtual drive space whereas Best quality loads everything. Just a hunch.

    What killed my recon squad ?

    There are 2 gun icons top north-east map corner that come alive as the rounds hit, separate from the barrage that occurs just after. Just wondering if those are artillery pieces firing direct at the fo team.

    Suppression Question

    I found it does noticeably suppress everyone in the building. I am not sure if this is a result of rounds landing in close proximity or if t is a result ricochets being tossed all over. But it will make the guys on the first floor nervous.

    Green Troops

    Other modifiers effect green troops. With low leadership it's like herding cats. With a leadership of +2 you can actually do something with them. One RL example would be 395th IR in Hofen. Self professed to be green, no experience. But managed to hold the line for various reasons, one of which was outstanding leadership.
  10. A couple filtered pics of a lonely panzer.

    Boring Time

    yes those objects are already in the editor. There are 5 different benches. And many different objects in the map maker/scenario editor. They can be pushed inside buildings.

    Boring Time

    I just did this, dropped some benches and crates and placed a church on top. Pews and alter. Same for factories and warehouses you can drop sacks and barrels etc. I never used or saved what I did but here's a screen shot.

    Green Troops

    Without trying to patronize that example I could see a green soldier firing a panzerfaust in a building and back blasting a comrade. Firing hand held AT in a building was implemented some time ago with penalties to condition. I've had schreks cause light casualties to squadmates when fired in a building too on occasion.

    Boring Time

    Ive fooled around with placing objects in buildings. Place the object first then the building. Most are not interior objects, maybe benches and crates work. Ground floor only.

    This guy is worth a watch

    Nuclear aircraft carriers maybe, because conventional carriers require fuel oil which kind of reinforces TIK's hypothesis.
