    Erwin got a reaction from Field Oggy in Afghanistan - The Current Situation   
    The perennial challenge/problem with places like Afghanistan and others is that we in the west simply cannot accept that their culture and way of life is so inimical to ours.  So, we repeatedly assume that the people of those nations will all fall over themselves to embrace western-style democracy.
    It took a thousand years for British-style democracy to emerge from warring feudal lords, and the US democracy "experiment" is an exceptional example that I don't think has ever happened b4.  
    It is much more common that nations with thousands of years of dictatorial/totalitarian systems tend to continue in that vein whatever they may call their system of government - eg: China, Russia etc.  
    Am old enuff to have learned that we have to deal with the world as it is... not as we wish it were, or hope that it was...
    Many/most of these nations are hopelessly corrupt and life tends to be cheap ion those places.  As many from those countries come to the west, those cultural values become increasingly evident in the west.

    Dirty project ! Part 1

    Ok ok perhaps a little too much dirt on the street, but believe me is not really easy to aim the tracks and follow it for created the traces !
    I was imagined 3 ways that a tank or others vehicles can take.
    Middle for speed and normal movement in colonne for exemple. Left and Right for tactic movement having in a corner a place sometime to shoot and take a little pause to take a welcome coffee or cup of tea for english gentlemen ! I try to added some engine oil stain, when some vehicles are stoped on a corner, and sometimes some bullets from a last shoot before drinking and smoking a cigarett butt...sorry not in 3d !

    Erwin got a reaction from 37mm in Initial 'All in One' modpack   
    Wow.  That is truly amazing.  And a huge amount of work.  But, hopefully, this will make all the best mods available. 
    A major problem with just collecting mods as they get released, is that so many are interfering with each other, and also after upgrades/updates, often many mods stop working.  But, trying test/figure out which mods still work when one has half a TB of mods is a full-time job.  
    So, thank you!
    PS:  What are the "Old CMSF vehicle mods"?  Do they work in CMSF2, and if so, why keep em as a separate category?

    One of my ongoing side projects (aimed, mostly, at the new influx of Steam Players) is to host an 'All in One' for every CM game here.
    This is my initial effort for RT & its primary feature is a large collection of weathered vehicle mods (by @kohlenklau, @umlaut  & @Aristoteles ) renamed & tagged so that they now work with F&R. It also features terrain mods by @SeinfeldRules, UI mods by @rocketman, @Marco Bergman & @Volksgrenadier, Infantry mods by @EZ, @Tashtego & @Ithikial_AU, loading screens by @umlaut, building mods by @Kieme(ITA) & @Tanks a Lot as well as the ME effects package, ME soundscape & (subdued & fixed) superpack voices by @ironsturm plus many more others.
    I know a lot of people had issues with their old RT mods & the new Fire & Rubble module so hopefully this modpack will be of some interest to them.
    Here's a taster of some of what you can expect...

    I looked from the start of this thread and realized that you have interposed yourself into a thread to which you have made no contribution whatsoever, and are merely attempting to derail this thread.  
    This is exactly the sort of thing you would complain about if anyone interrupted your thread.  I'd say this as a good example of hypocritical virtue signalling.  If you have nothing to contribute, why are you disrupting our conversation about a WW2 game?  If you are auditioning to be part of the thought and censorship police, China would love to have you.

    Wow.  If that is the standard around here, a lot of people on these forums would lose teeth and more for saying lots of things that offend me.  Ridiculous sensitivity is imploding our culture imo.  Or maybe you are one of those who don't believe we euro westerners have a culture cos we "stole" it.

    We all abbreviate things all the time.  Please let's not get into political correctness forcing us to spell out every word fully.  Some people will always be offended by something.  I am offended by many things too.  I hold my tongue cos I know it's not intentional.

    I thought we wanted all-female formations as the Soviets had, to virtue signal our "me too" credentials.  Surely you are not hinting that women warriors cannot do all the things men can do?  You'll have sburke calling you a male chauvinist pig next.     
    Uniforms are quite baggy, so no real sexy shapes are easily seen - not at the height level most folks play CM anyway.

    They have... it's called languages.  Simply use an existing nation's language and mod it to female.  (May have to mod that nation's uniforms as well of course.)

    BUTTONED SPOTS BETTER:
    Here is a possibly incomplete list of vehicles that spot better while buttoned all the time (but only to the front of the vehicle).
    M1A2 Abrams
    T-90AM
    BM Oplot
    M2A3 Bradley
    M3A3 Bradley
    M7A3 B-FIST
    Khrizantema

    I don't know for certain, but I think it very unlikely that vehicle crews have night vision goggles, so nearly all vehicles should stay buttoned in low light conditions.
     
    UNBUTTONED SPOTS BETTER:
    WW2
