  1. I follow now. I misunderstood at first and was thinking that you were talking about research chits in general and not just intelligence ones. It would seem then that you would essentially need two separate systems, then, since intelligence just adds to your chances of regular research paying off. Technological advances by espionage and technological advances by research. While I can absolutely see your point, I think that it wouldn't be worth the game changes required to the system to implement it. Take, for example, the Tupolev Tu-4 saga. While that was a stroke of luck leading to B-29s
  2. This is very true. Ian Hogg once said (talking specifically about German artillery of WWII) that the last 10% of performance is 50% of the cost. That was a direct reference to the cost of research. The difference between a plane that has a maximum speed of 400 mph and costs $100,000 and a plane with a maximum speed of 440 mph might be another $100,000. Similarly, artillery had the same issue. Compare the German 24cm K 3 gun and the US M1 240mm howitzer. They fired a similar sized round for a similar effect on the target. Both were designed for counter-battery fire, destruction of fort
  3. Thanks, Hubert. I'd love that. To be honest, though, in playing through it, the whole "East Commonwealth" and "West Commonwealth" thing didn't work too well for me. After I played through it, I fired up a couple of Storm of Steel games in PDE and found them far more enjoyable. Japan seemed totally unnatural in Blitz and the split of the countries (such as China) didn't work too well on the giant map. I also hated how, once landed on Australia, most Japanese units couldn't move AT ALL because of the terrain and low movement points. It was very easy to see how easily an Allied player could
  4. So I've been playing the new WW2 Global Conflict for SC2: Blitz and it's great fun. Now I want to play it, but with the new WAW units. Is there a version of Global Conflict for it that includes the rest of the world and Japan? Thanks in advance, Logan
  5. So I just started playing SC2 again after about a year without. I wanted to get some of the latest mods and scenarios, but saw that it was closing down very soon. I want to download what SC2 stuff is there before it goes away, but I can't see where any new users can register. Am I just missing it or has that been disabled? If I can't register, can someone PM me their login so that I can get everything SC2-related from there before it goes away? Thanks in advance, Logan
  6. Discounts for forum members or original SC owners? Logan Hartke
  7. Hello, I'm Logan Hartke. I made the 1945 Fall Weiss scenario. I really need to write a little readme so that Narayan can upload it to his website. I'm so lazy. Maybe I'll do it this weekend. Anyway, just send me an e-mail and I'll attach the scenario to a reply e-mail. comradeloganov@aol.com Logan Hartke
  8. I either only move through the Turkish-Soviet border with two HQs and/or, more often, I just stick to the coastline as long as the enemy doesn't have surface units gunning for my HQs. In one of my first games I got an HQ stuck and I learned my lesson, never doing that again. Logan Hartke [ October 05, 2003, 11:04 PM: Message edited by: Logan Hartke ]
  9. I've been looking at them and they look GREAT, but, honestly, I'm an old Panzer Leader junkie and that's part of the reason I like the look of the game so much as it is. The game looking like it does in the German version actually takes something away for me. I use the Elite Edition graphics mod with Martinov's hexes, GDS_Starfury's medals, my flags, and my icons. Besides, I put about 20 hours into my different icon sets and I'm keeping them. Thanks but no thanks, Logan Hartke
  10. I'd just like to publically thank John for going to the effort to make this AAR and say that I am waiting with great anticipation for every post he makes on this thread (not to mention the outcome of the game itself).

  11. America deserves tech in Advanced Submarines and Heavy Tanks. America during WWII had the world's most successful, damaging, influential, and survivable submarines. It had the most daring and innovative sub commanders. Due to the flood of British WWII books, all we seem to hear about is German sub warfare, but until the Type XXI U-boats came out, American subs were basically better in every category. American subs also benefitted from a more effective radar and were, BY FAR more lethal than anything that the Germans ever sent down the slipway until the Type XXIs started being built (and th
  12. I could easily do that, its just that I fear people confusing those units with tank units. Also, I think that people would also start to lose respect for the "boots on the ground" and, even though I admit I am a tankaholic, I think that the boots are underappreciated and I almost would feel guilty replacing that icon with an APC and/or IFV, do you know what I mean? Over the weekend, if I have some free time, I could give it a shot, but I'd need to do that with all of the countries. I was thinking for US - M113(corps)/M2 Bradley(army), for UK - FV432(corps)/Warrior(army-even though its 2yrs
  13. Thank you John, but the icons that came with the set were only partly mine. The icons that I sent Narayan (and should come out in a pack, possibly with the mod) are all mine and you should take a look at them when Narayan puts them up. As for the balance issue, I already brought up a lot of issues with Narayan and proposed a fair number of solutions, but fixing all of those things will take time. Narayan, did you get my e-mail(s)?

  14. Oh, heck, I just went on Amazon. Someone there is actually selling a copy of CC3 for $20. I'm dead serious, buy it NOW! I've not seen one at that price for a while. Ebay has like 3 or 4 for sale right now and you might be able to get one for about that price if you win a bidding war. They usually go up a lot near the end. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/stores/offering/list/-/B00001LDC9/all/ref=sr_pb_a/103-2507791-8900664 Logan Hartke [ September 10, 2003, 02:55 AM: Message edited by: Logan Hartke ]
