    grunt_GI got a reaction from ral999 in CMBO Birthday Greetings!   
    More importantly...THANK YOU for supporting CM on Macs for so long...yes Macs have always been less than supported by the larger game community but Battlefront has been steadfast in supporting Mac even when Apple screwed them over a couple of times...yes I've been here all 20 years and remember when Apple abandoned Quickdraw for OpenGL so the old CM games don't work on OS X and when Apple broke their Mavericks OS X and forced BFC to do an emergency patch to CMSF 1...
    SO THANKS THANKS...CM series is the ONLY game on my Mac for almost 10 years now...

    You do realise you have destroyed the British Army from within;
    Sgt: "Perkins what the hell are you doing? You were supposed to be on patrol 10 minutes ago!" 
    Perkins: "Err yep.... be right with you sarge... just got to split off this scout team, give them a hunt command"
    Sgt: "Perkins get your backside in gear!"
    Perkins: "Yep yep, just calculating the turn.... just got to quickly watch this replay" 
    Sgt: 'PERKINNNNSS!"
    Seriously though, really interesting to see this. Well done.

    Hi guys I am still around and follow the threads from time to time. Just havent been able to devote any time to CM of any title for awhile. Lot of other projects and work happening. But glad to see people are still cussing my campaigns lol, even noticed a few on youtube from different titles. Maybe soon I can put something together for SF2.

    Hey, if you've never tried night combat with Rambler's night vision mod...you are really missing out.  It will totally change CMSF2 and CMBS...works with both

    I really did not like playing night missions, but this is one of my favorite modern CM mods.

    OK, not gonna lie, I want this...for CMBS, or CMSF2...OR GASP...BOTH...in order to have some really excellent Blue on Blue...like the ol' Twilight 2000 campaign someone made for CMSF1.  You could have a whole campaign on this map....
    Great work....

    grunt_GI got a reaction from Sgt.Squarehead in Mosul (Iraq) The small red-headed child of an epic MOUT map!   
    I will also toss in that I really enjoyed this...even though I suffered a tactical defeat.  Even though I captured the OBVIOUS geographic objectives I.......SPOILER ALERT..........
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
     
     
     
     
     
     
    Missed all the other mission/point objectives.  AND of course I blundered into too many IEDs and took to many casualties.  You know something like this.."Hey Abdul take your squad over there and check out that abandoned taxi..."  "Sure Mohamed".....BOOOOOMMM... 
    Yea, I was kinda stupid like that.  After a short period of time I may revist this...try and be a LITTLE more patient and not rush into things.
    Overall, I have to say this is one of the best MOUT maps I have played on CMSF, and I know there are some darn fine ones out there, so BIG kudos for the map.
    The AI is also pretty tough, although to be fair, the defenders just have to defend...but they use those #%*#^$ IEDs to great effect on numbskull commanders like yours truly.
    Someday, when CMSF2 shows up (fingers crossed) I would love to see this scenario ported over to the new engine...not sure how IEDs and VBIEDs may work, but I bet the new AI features would be awesome.
    Thanks very much for this..BZ from me!

    The user community. I have more content than I could possibly play so there’s always another scenario or campaign awaiting.  (Even though I mostly play QBs)  
    And many of these volunteer efforts are magnificent. 
    Hat tip to anyone who takes the time to make content. It’s the best part of these games.  The people.  Even the whiners. 😎.

    Once I get the map to a point where there's something solid to show. I most definitely will. I had a decent start in CMSF 1. I'm waiting for CMSF2 to be finished, and I'll go from there.

    OHHHH, and don't forget this one....it's a scenario...but a FOUR HOUR scenario that many folks have said plays like a campaign...
    On August 31st, 2017 at 1300hrs the player takes charge of a Tactical Operations Center (TOC) located in a Forward Operating Base (FOB) for a four-hour shift.  The FOB is located in Ukraine in the vicinity of the forward edge of the conventional battlefield.  After months of conventional warfare the Russian Federation and NATO have fought to a temporary standstill.  A cease fire is in effect and negotiations are underway.  The conventional fighting has been replaced by guerrilla warfare as the Ukrainian government and Separatists attempt to improve their negotiating positions.  Apache Troop (Stryker) / 1st Squadron / 2nd Cavalry Regiment is conducting low intensity operations from the Forward Operating Base.

    FISH....The British armed forces terms are OBUA (operations in built-up areas), FIBUA (fighting in built-up areas), or sometimes (colloquially) FISH (fighting in someone's house),or FISH and CHIPS (fighting in someone's house and causing havoc in people's streets).  😎
    That's awesome...time for some FISH and CHIPS....😏
