  1. Well finally got some time to return to the CM arena. Travelling around a lot so not close to my desktop with CMBN much but run a Mac laptop 'on tour' and am pleased to see CMFB runs really well. Firstly, brilliant game!!!! Easily the most polished in the whole CM arena IMHO and I have quite a few, right back to the first CM. I mean, the atmos that shots like below create for me (mind you, I had to move the FO from there early on, lost them a few times - why is it ALWAYS the darned observers / commanders that get the unlucky bullet LOL - few times I went back to the FO only to see 'DENIED', and of course he'd bought it). Stunning really. I like CMBS too, great range of kit there, just too much AT around in that game for my liking. Couple of well placed AT assets in that can really ruin your day (and for me hunting them down is kinda less interesting), whereas in CMFB your'e lucky if an ATG survives long unless you hide or haul ass ASAP after firing. Both demonstrative of RL, but I like WWII RL more LOL Couple of issues / questions (not complaints!!!) I need to clarify: Buildings and HE. Wow!, do the buildings seem resilient!! Not sure if they are supposed to be that way? I guess there might be buildings of differing resilience or does the type/size affect it? As an example, I played the 3rd scenario in the Training Campaign (where my stand-off and survive tactics for the infantry worked but gave me the unenviable task of trying to dig the Germans out of the village they were thus able to occupy - I wanted as much infantry in tact for the next scenario) so I ended up shelling the row of four buildings that extend to the left horizontally as you look into town from back in the US side. Jeez, I must have pumped 20 HE into each building (or at least it felt like it, I cut off 'Target' after two turns to avoid blowing my whole HE inventory), result ? - damage only!!! Huh?? I'd expect that after 5 shots. After 10 I'd have thought they'd be down. Maybe even after 5-8. Thought I'd seen a thread about HE and buildings somewhere, maybe CMBS, but can't find it now. For me, on the Mac, Alt-Tab doesn't return me to desktop. It might be something to do with how my laptop is set up with using swipe between pages / screens on the toucpad??). At times I really like the movie mode, too much snow though and it's a bit too close to B&W for me, maybe just my machine though. This maybe something I remember wrongly but dismounting from vehicles (now it might work differently in CMFB than BS) BUT IIRC in CMBB if you wanted to dismount a passenger in one turn you could give the vehicle a move order, give it a pause waypoint, give the passenger a move order, and the vehicle another move order which it would execute AFTER the pause (e.g. after the passengers had got off). In CMBS however I got caught out loads of times telling the Stinger transport to move, pause, give the stinger crew time to dismount, then drive on - only to check 3 turns later that the vehicle was driving off into the sunset with the stinger team still on board!!!! Argghhhhhh!!!! Maybe I remember it wrong or it's changed from earlier games? I just thought that giving passengers a move order, they'd execute it as soon as the vehicle stopped or paused long enough, or CAN it actually work like that but just I'm just doing it wrong? Might be worth updating the manual to reflect that preparatory bombardments are ONLY available in attack scenarios. I spent a fair bit of time hunting round for it in the CMFB manual and online after and I couldn't even see how to do it, let alone when you could. Or it may just be that the info is there but that my PDF reader app searcher isn't up to it. Any recommended mods, campaigns or scenarios to DL. I have Juju's UI (a must have for me), I'm trying the HQS 2.5 sound mod (not sure about that TBH, many of them are great (although I wish I could put back the stock intro music as an option) but I needed a break from "Did you see that?". I think the mod from CMBN was AKD, would that work with CMFB? I've seen folks say the AKD mod from CMBS would work but of course there'd be no 'Garand ping' in that. There was a great radio chatter mod for CMBN IIRC, not sure if that would work? Also got the Aris terrain mod which I mostly prefer I think. I like the USA no greatcoat mod too. Not doing TOO many vehicle mods this time around (I think I wasted half my time on CM/CMBB and even CMBN modding it, not playing, and it's not like CMFB needs much - unless there's any must haves Anyway. Thanks BF for a great game!!
  2. Here is my new, modded barn: http://www.mediafire.com/file/5aszwd6czkymgcv/Barn Building 201 Whitewash.zip I shall be uploading it to the official mod sites now. This is a modded, whitewashed, weathered wooden barn based on the independent CMBS building Barn 201. So it should be building201 (03). If you put the folder in your DATA>Z folder it should be available for scenario creation. Shift-left clicking should change the barn till you get this one. (alternatively you could rezpack it into BLACK SEA v100b, using the Mod Tools but I would suggest that is not necessary). It is suitable for anywhere and any period of Combat Mission where they have whitewashed barns. I imagine that's most places. It is in Standard Definition (if you like) so it will load quickly. I considered making it in HD (Like Kieme's Mods) but decided it was simpler this way and will not look out of place near existing buildings. It is fully functional, men on foot can enter and shoot out, and it is destructible, as normal.
  3. Hi everybody, I have successfully modded one building - just a variant on a stock CMBS commercial building and got it to load in the scenario editor. After more reading-around, especially @umlaut 's work, I have come to the conclusion that modding modular buildings is never going to work. Today I modded CMBS independent building 103 - a commercial building, and called it building400 and put it in the Z folder including a renamed .mdr file from the original 103. After opening the Scenario Editor I cannot seem to find it loading. Any ideas? Please. Second request: I know know how to mod flavour objects. What I want to do is turn the posters through 90 degrees to make them into shop/wall signs and billboards. If info is right there is "space" for at least 5 more poster designs, but I need an appropriate .mdr file. AFAIK calling it poster5.mdr will mean it turns up in the right place in the scenario editor. Unfortunately I have failed to open a .mdr file and don't know what to do. Anybody able to manipulate one of the poster mdr files so the alignment is changed by 90 degrees? Thanks Julian
  4. Hello everyone! The other day I was driving through my home city and thinking about CMBS (as you do!). And as I drove I was looking at the variety of buildings on display and how they are all different shapes and sizes, often curved and following the bends of the street, and I thought to myself "wouldn't it be cool to have a modern city environment like this in CMBS"... I.e. Buildings of a great variety of shapes and sizes, different architectures (a mix of modern and old) that follow the curves of streets. Offices and shops. And what about huge built-up industrial areas with massive factories? I have also been watching the seminal 1970s documentary series The World At War (if you haven't seen it, you should!), specifically the episode on Stalingrad and the grim fighting amongst the rubble and destroyed buildings - I thought here too, wouldn't it be cool to have a destroyed city to fight within, where your troops can take shelter amongst broken walls and buildings, hide within a dilapidated factory? A sniper in the broken buildings... I guess the question I am posing - is it possible to mod the buildings in this way? With the greatest respect, many of the stock buildings are quite basic and follow the same patterns in the shape of a square. I would love to have a battle in a realistic city, with restaurants, cafes, and factories, where the architecture is diverse. Or is this too complicated and beyond the game engine/graphics capabilities? Just wondering... Yours... A.

Building can be found in Scenario : the Training Roadblock (Advanced house near the little river, from the german perspective) !! If some of you are interresting to see result can send the file... thanks in advance !
  6. I was reading that the Pat and TaL building mods are not the right style for Market Garden scenarios. Do any of them look accurate for the area? If not, I assume I should disable all the Pat and TaL building mods if I want my MG games to look more accurate? I'm using: Pat TaL Modular buildings 1 - 4 Pat_TaL_independent_building_1 - 2 Pat TaL independent commercial buildings Tanks a Lot's CMBN Barns Tanks a Lot's CMBN buildings Tanks a Lot's CMBN Church 2 Thanks.
  7. I am new to CMx2 and have seen a lack of accuracy in terms of doors and windows in buildings. For example, during one battle, I ordered a squad to approach a building from behind. The back of the building had no windows or doors; it appeared to be just a solid brick wall. I moved the squad up against this brick wall. I didn't know if any Germans were inside, but without any visibility or openings to shoot through, I assumed the squad was safe. The next thing I know, the occupants of the house opened fire on the squad through the brick wall, killing all of them with bullets and even a grenade. I have had other instances where a squad entered a building miraculously through a wall with no doors or windows. But then, at other times, when giving a squad a command to enter a building, the squad has had to run around the building to a door to enter, possibly exposing them to enemy fire. I have had troops inside a building able to have line of sight through solid walls in some cases and not in others. I just don't know whether to believe the accuracy of doors, windows, and walls on buildings or not. And not knowing this can be very costly. I would appreciate any comments.
