  1. Is this confirmed true? I know I've heard similar things from veteran players like @Erwin but I know some like Rinaldi really seem to disagree so I'm never sure.
  2. The problem is that the size of CMX2 maps, as @Erwin (among others) has pointed out elsewhere, often doesn’t allow this. The maps are often designed to encourage really small engagements with little room for maneuver. So repositioning often isn’t a choice. It depends heavily on the scenario and map designer.
  3. I think Saint_Fuller’s post shows a major problem in this thread, which is certain people just refusing to give due consideration to @Bulletpoint and @RobZ’s arguments. The strawmanning legitimate criticisms of the game results in bad counter arguments that don’t address actual points made.
  4. I see the USA is doing it again, over-engineering vehicles until nobody is quite sure what purpose they serve 😜😜
  5. In the zip file there are two .cam files, one large one and one small one, where does the small one go? edit: NVM, one is for MACs.
  6. Amazing! You continue to be one of the best skin modders on this forum! The worn look of the Canadian uniforms is great. Will you be modding in new vehicle skins for the stryker and bradley?
  7. I'll do him one better than a slow clap, I'll serenade him. More seriously. @Haiduk does it not worry you that you have random militias and whatnot infested with possible Neonazis in Ukraine? Seems like an issue that another government had: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freikorps , let's hope it turns out better
  8. This is actually hilarious, I pray certain users on this forum see it, it would send their blood pressure skyrocketing.
  9. I was curious as well, so I checked it out. From what I can pick up, the first half of the song is about the inability to find a "good" woman to settle down with, and it complains about how society is too obsessed with instant gratification with pornography (I think). Then the second half complains about Europe being destroyed and overrun and encourages you to join something, not sure what. Weird song choice.
  10. Lmao. The irony of this insult on a video game forum and from a dude who likely still plays with dolls, sorry, “models” isn’t lost on me. also it’s only gay if there’s anal penetration. Smh. You would think someone married to an Afghani would be more respecting of boy love, given its deep role in their culture.
  11. Frederick and Wilhelm II must be turning over in their graves 😭
  12. A poor attempt at a comeback, don't make me get @Rinaldi or @IICptMillerII I know you live in fear of confronting them
  13. Lmao. Accusing someone of not reading while also thinking FDR was an incompetent communist plant. This thread's reached its peak. Only thing missing is someone using the term "head choppers" unironically. Pretty problematic to assume my sexual orientation like that. I just figured she wanted some stimulating conversation, between you and Squarehead talking to her, she must feel like she's a nurse in a home for geriatrics
  14. Maybe true in the very broadest sense, but far more blame goes to the Soviets basically throwing the whole country into disarray with their poorly planned and poorly executed invasion. This is a very spicy accusation. Clearly there can be no middle ground between the Taliban and depopulating whole villages like the Soviets did, right? Those barbarous Afghans need a firm hand and all that. The Soviets were just following the well-known and very successful tactics of another power that stabilized regions, Nazi Germany. Take fire from a village? Erase said village, pacify countries with this one little trick. We shouldn't be surprised at this level of competence from the Soviet Union, they did after all compromise FDR I'm curious how you read some of these books, like Afghantsy, and still come to the conclusion that the Soviets knew what they were doing lmao. Give me your wife's number, I'll call her up and we can hear what she thinks of such takes.
  15. This is quite the chicken and egg problem you've created here, given that the rise of the Taliban was due in large part to Soviet brutality which forced millions to flee into neighboring Pakistani refugee camps where radicalization efforts were being undertaken. Turns out bombing cities doesn't exactly stop people from joining guerilla forces. Its also weird to accuse NATO of being too soft, given we're in a thread about about the Soviets leaving Afghanistan, which they did in large part due to declining support for the war effort. I'd be genuinely curious to know what books you've read on this topic.
  16. I think @Rinaldi is also missing the great mod potential here. The m113 is still in front line service with a lot of senior NATO partners who somebody might want to mod in. I could easily see people modding in scenarios for major NATO allies like Turkey, Norway, Lithuania, and Greece, who all use the M113 still (which might make up for Steve's unusual dlc choices).
  17. I wouldn't be opposed as long as they included a variant that has the m47 Dragon mounted on top. With Ukraine essentially being the Soviets circa 1985, we could finally have our cold war gone hot game in the form of Black Sea.
  18. So while I agree with the sentiment here (rinaldi can be prickly). You might want to spellcheck a bit here. It’s hard to follow what you’re saying. Maybe that’s just me. Like try this:
  19. No offense friendo, but I think it was pretty obvious that Rinaldi was taking a shot at @Sgt.Squarehead. As the two don't like each other very much. Sadly I think you were caught in the crossfire between the two ornery Brits. No excuse for the rudeness of course, but they don't teach politeness and manners in the British Army, so its to be expected.
  20. Let me cheer you up with a joke, @Sgt.Squarehead might appreciate this joke as well: the Russian Navy. Funny joke right?
  21. Really? Wow. God Bless Ukraine, I'm so glad we live in this timeline. We could have lived in boring times instead.
  22. Perfect! These should be really good. Will be interesting to use them alongside @Oleksandr‘s Blufor reskin mods (assuming he takes a break from Black Sea and gives us some great mods on SF2)
