Dear developers, first of all, I would like to thank you for making this wonderful game. I'm familiar with Combat Mission games since Combat Mission: Barbarossa To Berlin came out. I think that Combat Mission: Black Sea is a true Venice of this game series. I understand that such massive project has a huge potential. Furthermore, I understand that you guys are working hard on each update. So I’ve decided to write you guys an open letter where I would express some functional and content related wishes of myself, and where people would be able to share their thoughts as well. So without any further due, I will list few things what I think would make this wonderful game even better. Environment It would be great if Combat Mission: Black Sea had more than one season in it. More specifically it would be great if we would have a chance to have winter in this game. First of all, by adding winter, you would boost community to produce more content such as reskins for uniform, armor, etc. Second, of all, it would be great to experience battles in the snow. Fortifications This game is covering modern warfare. Fortifications represented in this particular game are very basic. There are no bunkers whatsoever. That’s a very pity thing because bunkers are actively used on the modern battlefield. Bunkers and other fortified fire positions (mg nests, artillery positions, etc.) are an important part of the defense. It would be wonderful if you would add some sort of those things in the game. Units I’ve already written about units a lot, and I got some response from some of you guys. Thank you for being so responsive gentlemen. Recently I thought that this wonderful game lacks some additional units in it. For both sides (Ukraine and Russia) it would be nice to see some units what were already represented in other games. Those are: GAZ 66 and variants (especially one with ZU-23-2), BMP-1 (and variants), BMD’s (of all kinds for VDV units), KAMAZ trucks (different models for both sides), KRAZ trucks and APC’s, additional BTR variants. It would be also great to see T-72(early variants) and T-80(and variants) tanks within this game. Adding some of these units in my opinion, would make this game more authentic. I’ve seen how you guys are making some additional packs before and I know that you can do it very well. Conclusion Guys I would like to thank you once again for doing what you are doing. The game is great; the story is fine, the gaming experience is awesome. I’m an absolute fan of yours. This open letter is just another way to ask for some more content. I hope that other guys who are hanging around here will add their wishes under this post and together we will be able to make this wonderful game even better. I’m sure that you guys will read this because you are always giving us some feedback. P.S. I’m sure that there will be some people around here who will be saying things like, “Blah blah blahThose changes are not necessary, that game balance is already achieved, and that additional content is long to produce and that blah blah blah no need to do it blah blah.” Please ignore people like that because progress is our everything. For us, true fans of this game, each update is an important event, each model what you create is a gift, and each change you make is excitement. So please, keep on doing what you doing. Thank you for your time.
"CMFB uses the v3.0 engine of CMx2, same as Red Thunder and Black Sea. Some features that are new to the Western Front include mortars being able to fire from inside their halftracks, and tank riders." Are there no new features for the CMx2 engine ? Was there some fine tuning in the mechanics (infantry spotting/cover) or will AI improvements be added ? Will there be any new graphic effects and features, improvements or optimizations ? I just need some news on that otherwise i cant justify spending money on it. BFC must have done something to improve gameplay...please tell us.
I would like to offer a suggestion to battlefront that could improve the overall quality of the game and strategy. Adding the ability to make map graphics. Explained: The op order screen does a great job of following the standard op order format. A feature that allows either a MGRS map to add graphics for phase lines or that allows you to place notes on the 3d map itself would greatly improve the planning process either in setup phase or in actual play. Players that prefer RT over wego should also be able to do this during a game pause. I love turn based but RT adds an element of realism I prefer for responding to changing battlefield conditions in smaller scenarios. I am new to the CM series of games so if this is possible I do apologize.. I read nothing in the supplied manual that eluded to this ability. I have resorted to hand drawn map sketches on paper which add a lot of realism in my opinion but are subject to the users drawing ability which was not my strong suit. A few simple graphics or an improved tactical map would help out a great deal. I think it is an excellent game and far superior to most strategy games out there. I think an addition such as this would only improve the experience. Besides the France based developers for wargame have included this and I know battle front can put them to shame. Any who agree with me please post on this thread. If you dont I would love to hear your reasons. Again I think this game is excellent and far more mature than any of the the strategy games that are available now. That being said as an Infantryman I was always taught to improve my position any chance I had.
