  1. The LOS check per waypoint and/or using the Target command for it takes a little getting used to, but it’ll become second nature after a while. Still, I do agree that the game would be more comfortable to play if there was a little more feedback on LOS. For example, weather conditions like fog or rain are not visible on the map in terms of graphical effects (haze) limiting the range units can see. Same goes for nighttime. Having some kind of overlay function where LOS is calculated and presented as shaded areas or something to that effect, would be a great quality of life improvement imo. Same goes for introducing haze or night time fading. For the modern titles which have units with thermal vision it would then be awesome to have spotted units light up realistically in that haze when a spotting unit gets selected. Just dreaming here.
  2. I run CM on a Philips 43” 4K 16:9 monitor and it suits me fine. I especially like the increased ‘scale’ of the units when zoomed in and am not bothered (yet) by the small UI the resolution causes. Have been playing on this res for about 3 years now.
  3. Great news! Looking forward to Cold War action in CM!
  4. Happy Newyear to all BFC folks! And also to all fellow CM players! Thanks for the bones. Now tell us more about Engine 5!
  5. Its been very interesting to read all your replies. I am grateful the many replies my simple question generated! I do identify with the points made above to sometimes take the most obvious piece of cover and concealment and play the waiting game to see if my men can spot enemies across over time. It’s of course a huge risk as you’re constantly under threat of being shelled to bits the longer you stay there. But at the same time my experience with the lethality of enemy fire makes me hesitant to advance. I am definitely going to try the splitting up of my platoons and see what that gives me for results.
  6. Solid info, everyone. Many thanks! I am going to practise the points made.
  7. Ok, this is posing problems for me every time; I end up in a tactical situation where I need to cross a pretty large open area. How do you proceed ? Do you split up your forces and go bounding overwatch and just accept you will loose certain units? Do you wait it out on the edge and keep spotting to enemies first? If so, how many turns before committing to moving across? Aparently I keep making the wrong decisions and get half my company wiped in a mere few minutes every time I try to cross an open patch. Help is appreciated!
  8. As a sidenote : keep away from Transparency AA settings in the Nvidia panel. It will make the ground look weird and blurry if you enable it. (Multi Samping / Super Sampling)
  9. Hi Jan, If you are still looking for an opponent, send me an PM and we'll get going. Cheers,
  10. Hi Ian, First and foremost, thanks for this utility. It makes managing games so much easier! Question; is there a way to make it start automatically when windows loads? Cheers!
  11. Different type of profession but still relevant for the discussion: I am a pilot flying about 200 passenger per leg from A to B. There are a LOT of variables at work in the process getting passengers and their luggage from A to B safely and in a timely manner. There are a few cardinal sins to be made when things do not go as planned and get people angry quickly in my experience: -Not giving any information at all -Making promises you can’t make true. -Lying about the situation I often see that we are affraid to bring bad news and then try to make plans to keep people happy as long as we can, or just decide not to give information in order to avoid discussion. This doesn’t work and frankly, people are perfectly capable to accepting bad news. Its all about how the flow of information is managed once things go wrong that define wether those 200 people disembark with respect or outrage in the end. - Addressing people frequently even though there isn’t any news is very much appreciated. -Giving a timeframe helps people feeling respected even though you might have to adjust that timeframe once in a while. I am not saying I am a guru, but these are important lessons we get taught as captains and I feel its quite applicable to whats going on here lately. Just my two cents, really.
  12. I hear you about the 19 pages. Every time I see the ‘Holy blue dot of new posts’ appear I think this must be BFC posting about the actual patch instead of random banter I find instead. That does not please the Refresh Monkey God! I firmly believe this is the actual reason of the long wait. So, please stop posting here gentlemen! Unless your offering to the Refresh Monkey God of course.
  13. Count me to the club of safe people. Checked my financial transactions and I am glad to say no malicious transactions have been made. I also bought CMSF2 upgrade upon release.
  14. Thanks to all who served and are serving to protect our freedom. Ultradave, thank you for sharing this great piece of background.
