  1. Look up FM 100-2-3, and should be Chapter 4 pages 139, 140.
  2. I think it's obvious through windows 10 that Microsoft wants to know every single little detail about you. Why do my discord messages suddenly come up in Windows? Are the end users so retarded that they can't use the discord app? There are malicious intentions behind this in my eyes. Made in China!
  3. Right... do you know how much fun that Berlin map is with CMCW?
  4. Nice. Leo1 outperforming M1A1. How did they do in 1991 after cutting down the radio chatter? Nevermind we will never know! They werent present due to Gulf war.
  5. Lmfao! Is that fire changing angle mid flight? I've never seen that before
  6. At the start they were obscured from those particular 3x of shturm. I had set up a whole battery (9 of them) in groups of three in different positions on the map. The group that was in the open field spotted great! The group in these trees, didn't spot a thing. And there was another group that was behind a low bocage, and they performed awful. They got spots, but constantly lost them immediately after before getting pwned..
  7. I feel like a Shturm should be able to see something like this: I had three and they all got owned by M60A3 and M901, but still, they couldn't see an entire battalion tactical group
  8. I dont think it's range either, as I said before. The flat range tests all passed great for me. I elevated my troops and they all had spots past 5km (Max CM engagement range for CW atgm) The Shturms even killed some shyt. But in pbem they have performed god awful.
  9. Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems that 1C Company is still in business, along with Digitalmindsoft who has taken over the series after Best Way (Though I'm not sure who did the development work for the game). Best Way has another "Men of War" title in the works. They seem to be based out of Luhansk so I wonder if the conflict had anything to do with it. Who are you referring to? Best Way? In that case then Digitalmindsoft seems like they know what they're doing kinda sorta. Why does the engine need replacing? What makes it any different than CMx2 which is just as old? By that logic I would think CMx2 would be considered an engine that needs replacing as well. The budget was huge, and I don't know how people wound up making mods for the game, but I don't think that was the developer's original intention, so they probably didn't spend time or money giving people any sort of tools to work with. But IDK. I'm just an end user. The strategy wargaming market was just as big back in those days. Company of Heroes... World in Conflict... it died out because the games got old, CoH had a terrible engine to modify (Lots and lots of crashes). Modding is what made the community EXPLODE. None of us ACE boys were happy about it, but the community essentially did a ton of work for the developer (Which in turn sold tons of copies). I'm not asking for an arm or a leg, but an expansion of what we could do in general with CM would be appreciated by the masses. Not sure what you think I'm talking about... Any Combat Mission veteran will tell of how BFC's customer support is the best of the best. But that is because game developers don't really do that kind of thing. Which is great, we all appreciate it. This now diverts resources to support a minuscule minority. I understand the price must be right. Nobody is telling you this. But people definitely want the features in their games. If they aren't vocal then perhaps it would never be known. I can see how allowing new models into the game could hurt sales. Maps too. But we port maps from title to title anyway, because if they didn't the games would get stale (For me!). I probably play more often than most, I have 15 active PBEM in my manager across four different titles right now. So it really helps to have the kind of flexibility I am talking about. If we weren't able to port maps that would be a huge, huge bummer. Nobody is asking for anything for free either. Nor is anybody demanding it. I understand, and I'm not trying to come off arrogantly. Everyone wants to see this series succeed, Battlefront to expand in their staff and capabilities, and get these modules rolling for us already. It's been five years since I bought CMBS, and it has yet to have a module. I'm not dragging you down for that, but it really would have been nice to play with the nato units from SF2 during this time. It would have made the game so much more enjoyable. I'm not trying to demand things, just be vocal about how I feel about the series. Which should be taken into consideration at the most.
  10. I do believe Men of War (To beat an example to death) was made by a very unheard of company.. I never heard of their previous game (Soldiers of War or whatever). The massive mods for it (German Soldiers Mod) actually made the game significantly more enjoyable. I understand splitting a small community isnt a wise move. But I would argue the only thing that keeps your community together is this forum. Remove the forum and what happens? There is barely a multiplayer in the game as is (By todays standards). People would never, ever find each other, or they would resort to other forums (They already do). So I would argue that adding some kind of mod support in the future would certainly do no harm. People stray away from unmodifiable games. What do you think about the success of the Arma series for instance? The only reason they got big were thanks to mods. ACE mod, ACEX for us milsimmers. And everyone knows what happened when DayZ hit. Mods made the most realistic shooter on the market even more realistic. Granted that isnt a simulation. And I understand the cmx2 system is full of code that wouldnt make sense to screw with... but it was done for CMPE.
  11. So the T64A is garbage in spotting potential compared the t72 due to a constricted commanders view. I noticed the sights were the same as bmp1.
