  1. I follow a gamers Youtube channel called Gameranx and they have 5.7 million subscribers. They put up a top 10 most historically accurate games list and it was pretty much the usual suspects, big games and so on. As I was watching it I was cursing to myself why these channels never do wargames in a serious fashion, but guess what? Wait for it .... ... and yeah, 5.7 million people might get exposed to a REAL game series 😃

    You know this has generally been a pretty good community over the years, albeit one with a fair bit of Clean Wehrmacht apologia. Sure, I can see the value Sicherungs units add, and while I disagree, I can see why some may want to see Feldgendarmerie. That inclusion has never extended to entertaining the idea that they were "just like" Commonwealth Provost Wing troops or American MPs. They weren't, and anyone who can open a book can see why. I do not have a single kind word to say about the Waffen SS historically, but this is a wargame and they were unmistakably a major combat force.

  3. Been ruminating on this possibility since RtV was announced. Been thinking about it hard since it was released. After I finished up the FI portraits it really started eating at me. So, I asked sburke to send me some RtV files the other day to do some testing. I actually gave up once and was gonna write him and tell him what I had been doing and that it had failed but I decided to try again. Still didn't get there and stopped. Figured I give it one more shot and all of a sudden....12 years of wishing is finally fixed. Not perfect but the best we've had since SF1 was released. @Zveroboy1 Yo

  4. Excellent thanks. Always interesting to see how other players tackled a scenario once you yourself have completed it. In this case rather depressing given how few casualties you suffered in comparison to my effort. Although in my defence it was only my 3rd CMFI scenario.

    for me this falls under the "asking to receive everything is same as asking to receive nothing". I want the main fighting covered, not every little niche unit that didn't really matter to the outcome in any major campaign/battle.

    If I had known the reaction, I wouldn‘t have asked for these units 😬 So calm down everybody, please. If I remember correctly there have been Police-Units available in the good old CMBB. So, it has been a normal and unspectacular question and not any obsession - because the campaign, I am working on, will actually includ parts of such units...because these units did fight at the Frontlinie during this period and because the campaign should be historically correct. No more, no less. I apologize for feeding Trolls. This forum should never be used for any political discussion.

    All one has to do is do a uniform mod, and you can have pretty much any unit you want. BF simply doesn't want to get bad press re officially portraying mass murderers. Is that so difficult to understand?

  14. If there are say five variations of a uniform, each a different color, Black, Red, Pink, Green, Orange, and you wanted all uniforms to be Orange, you'd make four copies of the Orange uniform and give them the names of the Red, Black, Pink, Green files. EX: You really like tropical uniform 2 smod_german_lw_para-tropical_soldier_uniform 2 you make four copies and make one "smod_german_lw_para-tropical_soldier_uniform" "smod_german_lw_para-tropical_soldier_uniform 3" 4, then 5. There are five variations in the mod you down loaded. Now lets say you found another mod and

    MODS gone crazy lol

    You don't need a Z before any of your folders. I explained what the Z Z Z folder was for in my post above. When Combat Mission is started the game will load ANY graphics/sounds etc. that are in your mod folder to temporarily overwrite the original game files. It will always do this as long as there are files in the mods folder to use. The highest letter of the alphabet always takes precedence in the loading order. So, if you have TWO mods and they are in folders named "Panther A" and "Camo Panther A" the one titled " Camo Panther A" will always be chosen over the other because C

    @_Greg I completely agree with you! It is about the depiction of a battle event, not about a moral classification of the participating units. Otherwise, no WW II game should be released. Besides, not only the skull units in the Siedlce area were "not the nicest", but also the Red Army units were not without. They not only committed serious war crimes against Germans, but also against Poles, Romanians, Finns... When they are not allowed to participate in the game anymore, it is quite empty on the battlefield. By the way, not all Japanese, Americans, English, Chinese, Poles... were part

    So you agree that the game simulates only the forces that took part in battles, yet then you say that it doesn’t matter if the unit also murdered civilians away from the front? That makes no sense. There should be a clear separation between what the soldiers did during the battles simulated in the game and outside of them. The guy doesn’t want to make scenarios where you burn churches with people in them, Jesus. He clearly states that he wants them “because these units did fight at the frontlines during this period and because the campaign should be historically correct. No more, no less.”

    THE PANDEMIC CHAT ROOM

    Problem on both sides is this is a marathon not a sprint. The current administration wants to forecast a return to normal as fast as possible. Some of that is economic, some political. The medical community is trying to get us to understand that even if you project the number of exposed 10 fold it is still for the US only 10 million or 3% of the population. The 1918 pandemic infected 28% of the populace. For arguments sake let’s say this does the same and the death rate is about 55,000 per 10 million infected and another 80-90 million will be infected. The math of this is harsh. China i

    The problem is that the different types of battles are meant to be played out on different types of maps. So that the extra points the attacker gets in an assault are countered by the map being more difficult to attack, and that he will have to reach objectives deeper in the map. That's how it's supposed to be. BUT many scenario designers don't understand that, so they just ship identical versions of the same map, labelled as probe, attack, assault... Even in the QB maps that come with the official game. In effect, this turns the battle type selection into just a kind of difficulty settin

Remember when this was a global pandemic that was gonna kill millions of people? Lame. I didn't even get to see any zombies, and I went out and bought some extra ammo too just in case.

  30. Yeah, I mentioned the chinstrap in the notes of the first post. I figured out the mask was using the wrong color (worked in RT and older mods). Fixed it with all black bmp. Here's a quick, dirty look at changing the colors of the beard and head wrap to give you an idea of where it could go with a more talented modder than me. NOTE: There appears to be a spot on the left shoulder where the textures don't line up due to the Indian skeletons being different than the Syrians.

  32. Okay. Came back to normandy after a couple of years off. playing campaign. My troops are nice and safe at the top of a reverse slope. Letting them sit there and gain fire superiority while I circle other troops around flank. All of a sudden - no orders given - when the enemy fires in their direction they charge the enemy machine gun. They stop about 10 yards away but most are cut down. Wanted to see if it's the campaign so I played a smaller scenario. About 10 minutes in, my troops are safety behind concrete wall while I lay down machine gun fire from another spot and circle t

The rarity level of the vehicles under repair will vary depending on the vehicle choice made in the vehicle choice scenario. The mixed TOE may have something like a Nashorn while the common TOE may have something like StuG III. When vehicles are repaired and returned to service, they will be found parked in the yard of the Repair Shop. Below a Hetzer tank destroyer is returned to service. The

  39. The info sharing system is buggy in some ways. I tested it before. If an enemy tank moves, its updated contact marker will never get shared through C2. Maybe that's what's happening in your example too. In your example, notice how the HQ has an enemy tank marker kust above it, in front of the white building. That's probably the marker for the same enemy tank as the other Sherman knows now moved ahead. But it's unable to share this new info.

There may exist legit criticisms of Trump, but they are always undercut when people who want to vent personal animosity get hysterical over made up nonsense as that erodes their own credibility re legit criticisms. Hysterical reactions to every little thing that certain people dislike about Trump erodes support for their position (and is what will help get him re-elected).
