  1. I know I ran into that in map design, but once you saved and opened it was normal. Never saw it during an actual game. Yeah that was a pretty good description. Fun scenario. May have to go try it again. Have had almost no CM time for a while and am going through withdrawal.
  2. Also an aspect of the player as god. You know that but if this were a real battles isn't it plausible that they would not? CM certainly has it's limitations. Players however also have our own bias of too much knowledge. We also look at every single battle as a crucial must win. In reality a commander's decisions would be influenced by factors outside the scope of a single CM scenario.
  3. I'd be happy to take that bet! They may not move as fast as we'd like, but they do this because they like it and they know their community. Steve and Charles aren't planning retirement any time soon.
  4. wet dream..... The wife might be a little perturbed at that thought but hey what can I say?
  5. dang man. Not even close. My congrats to her for what must be an awesome life story.
  6. Friday afternoon and finally off video conference calls. Gawd I both love Zoom and hate it. There are lots of reasons for delay and for those of us who have been around a while it is a constant joke on Steve's ability to wildly overestimate when a product will be out. We love ya steve but I always double or triple your estimates. Covid has impacted all of us and I really appreciate Combatintman's concerns. My wife and I both have aging mother's that are very vulnerable. In my case I can't visit her because of the risk, my wife is unable to even assume risk, she is simply prohibited
  7. My first trip to London I made a point of taking a train out to see her. Beautiful ship.
  8. Just got this email announcement notification. Pretty cool. Doubly happy that CMSF was brought up to spec. All that hard work paid off for my favorite CM game - Thanks BF! https://www.matrixgames.com/news/combat-mission-shock-force-2-out-on-august-25th
  9. sorry I am not really into White men feeling victimized. Hell my mother couldn't get a credit card when I was young because they didn't give them to women. The neighborhood I lived in when I was 4 had a massive riot just because 1 black family moved there (google Baker Incident in Phila) and your own Boston history is rife with this kind of stuff. Black people are still having their voting rights undermined 55 years after the civil rights act. I think white males tend to be the real snowflakes. We don't like not being able to take for granted being at the front of the line all the time.
  10. The south facing bridge in Delores seems to have an abrupt drop off. Have you had any pathing issues there?
  11. I prefer Steve Martin's in My Blue Heaven. What is the difference between a light bulb and a pregnant woman? I think Germany has some more important issue to worry about at the moment. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/03/world/europe/germany-military-neo-nazis-ksk.html?searchResultPosition=4
  12. Barring that I think you'd try on your own as a secondary choice 😛
  13. It might also have something to do with the newer AI behavior with units heading to the corner. I don't have any firm evidence of that but have seen occasional weird behavior like units moving to the wrong side of a wall where it intersects with a building. I also as Erwin noted split my squads most of the time which may limit the overall effect. I haven't been getting much CM time lately so don't have much to go on right now regarding behavior.
