    Getting into map making

    Water warning! Be aware that the game restricts all water features on a map to one and the same elevation. The elevation of that nice little shoreline at the bottom of your ridgeline will be the same elevation as the nice little pond at the top of the hill. This creates a volcano like water crater by the higher terrain feature. The only exception is the "stream" terrain which acts more like a pathway on a map than it does a water feature. See lesson learned here: Good luck making your maps and designing your scenario's. Consider The Proving Grounds when looking for testers ( http://www.thefewgoodmen.com/tpg2/ ).

  4. Because Battlefront does not publish a game covering this, I think it is worth your while to take a serious look at Matrix Games' forthcoming "Armoured Brigade" title due for release 15-Nov-2018.
  5. Forum conflation or broken mouse scroll wheel - maybe both. The CMx2 general discussion forum at the top of the Forums landing page is regularly confused with the Battlefront general discussion forum at the bottom of the landing page. <Sign> Unfortunately, not the first time and won't be the last.

  9. The manual refers to it as the "Evade" button in the command panel. Instant Commands - allow one click change in unit behavior. The left button tells the unit to HALT and retain its Commands. Clicking on the button again tells the unit to RESUME. The middle button instructs the unit to CANCEL all its Commands and to do nothing for the moment. The right button tells the unit to EVADE by abandoning its current Commands, seeking immediate cover and perhaps popping smoke. Although units can Evade on their own initiative, sometimes they try too hard to stick to their Commands and need to be redirected without further delay. Instant Commands work in both Real-Time and We-Go styles of play.
