Brief overview of where CM is headed

Recommended Posts

Did Rosenberg lend some advice on how to keep open an otherwise important thread once the cow leaves the barn?

Kevin

yeah really

So to get back to the thread in the barn.

What we know

Late NWE game release coming

line up to include

CMBN Battle pack

CMFI Module

CMRT Module

CMBS Module

Work is in process on CMx2 Version 4 engine

One would assume then things would proceed with the East front family of games 1941,1942 and 1943 - Those are the only game families that have been previously announced

How about CMSF, any thoughts on when we might get some CM love there?

How about making the camera come down to soldier eye level? It would make it so much easier to get an overview of the battlefield, and make me feel like I'm standing there myself..

 

Good for: 

 

Gameplay

 

Immersion

 

Programming time cost:

 

next to nothing

Also for making even more immersive screenshots of action.

The problem i was talking about (see thread i linked) is this:

 

In reality soldiers can stay hidden (prone), and from time to time raise their heads.

In CM, if the soldiers are prone, this restricts their view (ok) but they should from time to time get the LOS as if they were standing just to simulate the ability to stay hidden while still keeping a overwatch.

Back to the OP while Steve is in a talking mood.

Pardon my ignorance but what do you suppose Steve meant when he said " mid term ".   Do you suppose that could be associated to a certain month or months or mid term of their overall plans?  Thanks

Reposted because our resident attention deprived child is once again at it.

So you are now the one who decides what kind of posts is allowed ?

Please stop this childish behavior.

What i posted was a question about a possible fix in the Bulge game, its perfect on-topic !

Because i think your post is really rude toward me (calling me a attention deprived child) i reported it.

nah he just has tests at school...  :D

 

Just means that they do have longer range plans and those they almost never share as they just aren't fleshed out enough.  Usually devolves into a discussion of space lobsters of doom.  Part of the issue is things are subject to change, the continued updating of game engines for example just kind of came out of nowhere and is one of the best things they ever announced.  It was not a minor commitment on their part and has had a cost in labor time that is probably not trivial, but IMHO is really worth it.  I don't mind paying for it as long as they can keep it up.

Not to nitpick, but he said work would soon start on it, not that it was already in progress..

LOL that he is even thinking about it to me means work has begun...the brain cells are churning.  :D

Nice summary above from the CM Junkie. Also add that the systems related to QBs and AI plans are not off the radar. I don't see any whopping news this time around. BFC is plugging along and truly loves to surprise us all in the end.

Because i think your post is really rude toward me (calling me a attention deprived child) i reported it.

My apologies then, I didn't think you were that sensitive. To be fair though it isn't simply name calling when an expression like that is used for someone who has on 3 occasions (so far) attempted to friend me. After the 2nd time was denied one would have thought you would have gotten the message.  I assumed perhaps incorrectly that this behavior combined with the blatantly passive aggressive nature of your postings was indicative of some sort of psychological need.

 

Again my apologies if I am simply misunderstanding issues you may have communicating in what I assume is a second language to you.  If that is the case I would suggest maybe taking some time to review the responses you have received as it may be your perception of how one expresses themselves to a native English speaker may be off by a bit.

 

edit - correction I see you sent a 4th request just now.  Sorry, this one will be denied as well.  You know this is now bordering on stalking.  Maybe I should file a complaint.

 

2nd edit - wow, really?  You "upped" my post.  That is just a bit too weird you know.

Appreciate the update, Steve. I'm looking forward to all of it.

 

Re: the 4.0 upgrade....  One thing on my wish list is adjustable purchase points for both sides in a QB, not just the attacker.

There are the very rare cases of trolls who are cute and tolerable, who engage in their passtime for the laughs. One of them might deserve a the (P) being fed to him... ;)

 

Then there's the other kind who must be starved. And not just after midnight, and who usually wouldn't go near water anyway.
