    Sgt.Squarehead reacted to mjkerner in will this game have spring summer autumn winter like CMFI   
    I wouldn't be surprised if they do a lot of modules and special packs for this. This is their first game in which there is no tight (several months or so) time frame. BFC even states outright that this game is a sandbox, which seems to me to be a major departure for them. In keeping with that, it would seem natural to release more forces AND more seasons.  This game is going to take off like crazy, judging by the response these last few days, so I think we can look forward to a smorgasbord of goodness following in its wake!

    I'm not sure that the enthusiasm of the bombees quite matches that of the bombers TBH.

    1979 Shah of Iran deposed by Islamic fundamentalists, Soviets invade Afghanstan.
    US & UK invade Iran from the gulf to secure their investments and prevent Soviet takeover.
    Soviets invade Iran from the north & east to secure their southern borders and prevent US/NATO takeover.
    Boom! 
    Absolutely stolen, but still absolutely plausible and a great way to get some extra value from the desert type terrain of the training centre.

    I'm not much of a fan of Vietnam based scenarios, but THIS I would want to try out.
    Sounds inventive and fun. PM deets please?

    Whilst converting the PA campaign I discovered that all mechanized units seem to use the mechanized uniforms (including Mechanized Reserve troops).
    If you want your mechanized opponents to use the PA (i.e. reserve) uniforms then it's best to purchase a Reserve infantry unit & then attach any necessary transport.
     
    PS
    If you want to (almost) completely disable the (already limited) Imperial NVG just set the conditions to "hazy".

    Oh, my, is this on the money. My comment in one playtest was how people (including myself) are used to pretty much cruising around with almost impunity in M1's.  Well, not here. M60s, M48s....   it's a WHOLE 'nuther ball game. And let's not even get into the cracker box M113s 🙂
    The mantra from when I was a young Army officer during this exact time (commissioned in '79) was "If you can be seen, you can be hit. If you are hit, you are dead"  This has been driven home to me any number of times very lately.

    Holy sh*t, this is even better than I first thought! While I have never been a big fan of a playing a face-off with Russia in the 80's, this will certainly get me into it. But even better, along the lines of what the Sarge is talking about, this will be a great sandbox for all my African Bush Wars and Arab-Israeli Wars stuff I've been putzing with (in modern day settings, of course) with CMSF2. Great times ahead for us and BFC!
     
    If it was done that fast alongside development of Fire & Rubble and British MOD work, I can imagine when they get around to early WWII, they could cough up at least one title per year, at least. Maybe we'll get to the early war stuff before I croak after all!

    "Southwind Command, this is 1-1.  Our position has been overrun and we are falling back!" 
    Look carefully at the guns of the guys in the background.....They ain't friendlies! 
    That's how close combat can get in the open, at night, in 'Heaven & Earth'.  The Imperials get NVG, but typically only one per squad or team at the most.....Now imagine fighting in our jungles, at night, against local forces with a concealment bonus around their village.

    The expansion & modding options for this game will be enormous, with just a couple of modules it could almost certainly handle the USSR's adventures in Afghanistan and all the way back to to America's involvement in Vietnam, and almost everything in between, including the Arab/Israeli wars.
    PS - Suffice it to say CM:H&E will almost certainly be getting a rebuild.
