    Looking into this issue!


    Any update??? Likewise is there anyone out there with the capability to unpack and work on other campaigns??? If so I am willing to Venmo anyone a couple bucks to make some minor troop experience adjustments to the main US campaign as well as the Ukrainian campaign.


    There are a couple scenario/ campaign designers out there that do amazing work but their love and reasoning behind using green troops does not align with my thoughts on troop experience levels. To the point that it ruins the immersion factor for me.


    For instance, I do not believe any frontline infantry unit for western nations should be anything lower than regular. Likewise I do not believe that a specially formed unit consisting of the very best technology/ troops the Ukrainians have available should have green troops crewing their top of the line tanks. Just my two cents, but it kills the immersion factor for me. I know “first world problems.”

    This guy is a nobody. Sounds like a straight up politician.

    That speech had 0 value

    Haha pretty interesting take on a non offensive speech. Lol. I am curious though why the hostility?


    I for one am a veteran, but am not one for mushy speeches but to get bent out of shape about it (unless you are standing in formation while someone drones on about blah blah blah) I just don’t get. I personally feel that the US and the U.K. are the closest of allies and very similar culturally. I know lots of Brits and it’s never awkward talking to them due to cultural reasons. Only their goofy accents lol. 

    Kidding, I’m just having a laugh (see that was for my British friends). I think everyone loves the British accent that’s why Brits narrate every documentary on earth.

  3. IMO, for what its worth, the firing rate may need to be adjusted in game. I think a lower firing rate would cure the CV’s from blowing through all their ammo to quick.

    But I could be wrong. I really love those vehicles. Just an observation for the designer of the CV by chance they’re monitoring the battlefront forums lol, you should include some kind of ATGM system on the vehicle. That would make it a truly dominant vehicle.


    id like to say again to BFC bravo for this latest patch, IMO the game is really close to perfect now. Thanks to all the Beta testers as well.

    Oh, the times I wished my riflemen could shoot bullets that penetrate tank armor and explode like small tactical nukes. Really, my martial prowess would be unstoppable with troops like that.

    And when I use them in a QB against an opponent? Lolz. I would crush his very soul. (Of course, I would also mod my men so their lightweight cotton uniforms could stop the depleted uranium penetrator fired by an Abrams. Duh!) And, I'd modify it so anything that would kill anyone else, even with the armored cotton (155mm to the head?) would only result in yellow icon, light wound. Yeah, I would reign over the battlefield.

    Is that what you meant?

    Lol have you never pbem'ed any other war game? In many other war games you can create mini nukes if you wish but if you pbem with an opponent it will default to vanilla settings. HOI series of games make switching between having mods on and off really easy.

  5. I get why BFC does not allow it because it is a simulator “as is.”


    But....... I think they would draw in more customers, including a younger than us old crusty vets crowd. Which would be good for growing CM games.  Not to mention I could personally adjust how artillery impacts buildings and not start threads about it being not very effective lol.

  6. Gotta say this is one of my favorite scenarios I have played recently. Bravo to the designers of this one. It really highlights why I and others love the CM games. It's a short battle (30mins) with a small amount of troops on both sides. I love using British troops and equipment, cant wait for the updated campaign to be released. IMO other than the US, the English are the only other force that I have used in the modern titles that have well balanced infantry units. Even though this scenario only use's engineer troops just an observation of mine and am wondering what others think. Possibly the Canadians as well, but the Dutch, German, Ukrainian and Russian infantry units are just too fragile and lacking firepower IMO. 


    Give it a shot, and Bravo again.

  7. Just checked out the file you uploaded and indeed the infantry did take a lot of casualties as one would expect. To refine my point down a bit, I think one 155mm shell bursting over a soft skinned target in the open should be more devastating than it is. If air burst rounds need to be adjusted maybe it is in this aspect. In the tests I've run it appears as if troops in the open stand a far better chance of taking less casualties than troops in a trench. Possibly due to troops in a trench being more tightly packed together?


    On another note how did you adjust the campaign parameters? I've been longing for this ability because I often disagree with campaign designers troop experience levels. Lastly, how has no one adjusted where those two tanks on the left of that battle are situated. Since CMSF1 they have been placed with no line of sight to anything lol. 

  8. While I give a big bravo for the infantry being improved, much more durable. The arty and other air burst munitions don’t seem to be working correctly.


    First example, in the Black Sea game I called an air burst 155mm strike on a couple non armored lorries carrying troops in the back under their canvas covers. One air burst round burst directly over the truck and did no damage to man or machine. 155mm artillery is a very devastating weapon and should completely annihilate those soft skin targets.


    This next example I have seen a few different instances of with various calibers of weapons from the 125mm tank air burst round to the Dutch KEFT round. On multiple occasions I have observed troops in the open or in trenches shrugging off these air burst rounds with no effect. I’m wondering if anyone else has noticed this occurrence?


    Lastly and this is more opinion, Troops inside buildings are too resilient to arty strikes. I have noticed groups of infantry hanging out in buildings so like any good commander would I shell them with heavy artillery. But after the strike is over I notice that the enemy has received very little damage even after taking several direct heavy artillery strikes.


    My over all theme is artillery (in particular air burst munitions) seem a little weak at the moment and need to be more deadly. I have a save available of the super lorrie. Has anyone else noticed this?

  9. Hmmm, another thing I have noticed (only played CMSF2 with the new patch) is that mortars are very inaccurate now. I don’t remember this being this way pre-patch. This goes for both on board and off. In fact my Canadian 60’s direct line of sight fire is atrocious. 

    The on board US 60’s in the WWII games are head and shoulders more accurate at least pre-patch. I have only played CMSF2 patched.

  10. Has anyone else noticed that when they call in an air strike from a jet, that the jet noise effect occurs like a bombing run just happened but no bomb is dropped. Then when I check the jets available load out it show one bomb less. Is this to simulate a dud round? If so I believe the frequency needs to be adjusted. In the last two missions the dud rate is like 40-50%.

    True that, that was literally the problem I had yesterday in a duel against a Shilka. Miss from a Gill and then just sitting there reloading and waiting to get killed. Would it be possible to clock the time of aiming necessary and then give them a 'target' command while in a for example 15 sec 'pause' command so they will immediately move after firing?

    If I am remembering correctly this is what I do with JAV teams. I give them a 30sec pause order for them to fire them a sprint to cover order. Haven’t tried it with the GIL but that could work unless it has a deploy/ pack up delay.

    If you're seeing something otherwise, let me know.

    I’ve run a little test and it is not air bursting, just blowing through all my precious KETF rounds. But I get why they shoot the KEFT instead of the solid shot.


    Another question, do those vehicles really only hold 200rds of ammo. Seems like a small amount, I guess since it’s a bigger round maybe less storage space?

  13. Just started the Dutch campaign and noticed some errors in the 1st mission brief. It stated that I would be getting a platoon of YPR's but instead have a platoon of CV90's #winning. But a mistake in the briefing none the less.


    More importantly, the CV90's are firing the KETF rounds at the bunkers. I thought this was fixing in the patch.
