The manual doesn't mention maximums for the number of units in a scenario. I've run into freezing the game when creating a huge battle with 2 reinforced battalions per side. Anybody have more information? When I say two reinforced battalions, I am talking about the reinforcements being elements of the same battalions, arriving later. I begin with a company and over 7 reinforcements I introduce the rest of that battalion and several more companies from two others. There are also a platoon of tanks or destroyers, some artillery, and perhaps an air unit per side. To get through the battle, I've had to remove all jeeps, trucks, and other vehicles that are not armed. I have deleted the supply units. I also save every turn so that I can continue when restarted. My computer has 8 Gigs of RAM and a Nvidia 7xx video card with 2 G memory. It is strong enough. I think the issue is in the programming, as the game sets up a set amount of memory to work with - within the Windows OS.
Well, my trial version of Elements was running out so I pulled the trigger and got the full version on Amazon at 40% off last night. So, looks like I am back in the modding game. Here's what I need help with. I need a list of German Divisions that were in the Western European Theater from October 44 to May 45. Not having to reaserch this will cut at least a month off the time it'll take to get this mod made. So, if you guys want a portrait mod I could use the research help. (Following cut and pasted from my RT mod thread) If you choose to do it, this is how I'd like to see the divisions listed; For Heer: (number) Inf Div (number)Pz Div (number) Pz Gren Div For Luftwaffe: (number) Luft Div (number) Fals Div For Waffen SS: (number) SS Div (number) SS Pz Div (number) SS Pz Gren Div For Volksgrenadier (Number) Volks Gren Div Keep all the branches together and div types together like above (Heer Infantry first, Heer Panzers second etc. with the division in numerical order), and I can easily scan through them without jamming my brain up. Seeing that is how I name the bmps when I mod them it's like muscle memory and makes it easier on me. You guys could keep adding to the list, and when the next guy has new stuff just cut and paste the list into your post with the updated divisions. An example of what I am talking about would look like this; 85th Inf Div 89th Inf Div 148th Inf Div 2nd Pz Div 9th Pz Div 11th Pz Div Etc. When Fizou helped me (with the RT mod) he got a lot of his info from the Panzer Campaign series, if any of you own them they are a good place to start. Mord.
Dear developers, first of all, I would like to thank you for making this wonderful game. I'm familiar with Combat Mission games since Combat Mission: Barbarossa To Berlin came out. I think that Combat Mission: Black Sea is a true Venice of this game series. I understand that such massive project has a huge potential. Furthermore, I understand that you guys are working hard on each update. So I’ve decided to write you guys an open letter where I would express some functional and content related wishes of myself, and where people would be able to share their thoughts as well. So without any further due, I will list few things what I think would make this wonderful game even better. Environment It would be great if Combat Mission: Black Sea had more than one season in it. More specifically it would be great if we would have a chance to have winter in this game. First of all, by adding winter, you would boost community to produce more content such as reskins for uniform, armor, etc. Second, of all, it would be great to experience battles in the snow. Fortifications This game is covering modern warfare. Fortifications represented in this particular game are very basic. There are no bunkers whatsoever. That’s a very pity thing because bunkers are actively used on the modern battlefield. Bunkers and other fortified fire positions (mg nests, artillery positions, etc.) are an important part of the defense. It would be wonderful if you would add some sort of those things in the game. Units I’ve already written about units a lot, and I got some response from some of you guys. Thank you for being so responsive gentlemen. Recently I thought that this wonderful game lacks some additional units in it. For both sides (Ukraine and Russia) it would be nice to see some units what were already represented in other games. Those are: GAZ 66 and variants (especially one with ZU-23-2), BMP-1 (and variants), BMD’s (of all kinds for VDV units), KAMAZ trucks (different models for both sides), KRAZ trucks and APC’s, additional BTR variants. It would be also great to see T-72(early variants) and T-80(and variants) tanks within this game. Adding some of these units in my opinion, would make this game more authentic. I’ve seen how you guys are making some additional packs before and I know that you can do it very well. Conclusion Guys I would like to thank you once again for doing what you are doing. The game is great; the story is fine, the gaming experience is awesome. I’m an absolute fan of yours. This open letter is just another way to ask for some more content. I hope that other guys who are hanging around here will add their wishes under this post and together we will be able to make this wonderful game even better. I’m sure that you guys will read this because you are always giving us some feedback. P.S. I’m sure that there will be some people around here who will be saying things like, “Blah blah blahThose changes are not necessary, that game balance is already achieved, and that additional content is long to produce and that blah blah blah no need to do it blah blah.” Please ignore people like that because progress is our everything. For us, true fans of this game, each update is an important event, each model what you create is a gift, and each change you make is excitement. So please, keep on doing what you doing. Thank you for your time.
