Re: Steel Tigers dev team latest scoop

About a year ago I read that Gary Grigsby was going to make the best tactical wargame in history and the game will set the standard for all future releases, this could be it.

Re: Flight Path Bug?

The way I see it, you give the aircraft orders and the pilots do their best they can, but based on your orders. After all, their the one's flying the plane not you, so when they change their...

Re: Choosing sides in Meeting Engagement

I think the simplest solution to this problem wound be to have player one's forces always start on the left side of the map and player two's forces always start on the right side of the map. Simple,...

Re: AI Tank Heavy Preference

For me, it depends on the terrain. If I'm fighting in close terrain, I will generally play with AI Tank Heavy off, and when I'm fighting in open terrain, I will generally play with AI Tank Heavy on...

Re: WINSPMBT cited in "Best Modern War, Cold War & WW3 wargames" article by Wargamer

Re: Scenario play and preferences

Re: Does fire spread?

I think fire should spread, though proportionally to its size, snow balling as it were. I think it would be realistic. On the other hand fire in the game causes suppression, which is highly...

Re: A proposal for sewer movement

Always felt sewer movement was a realistic and practical practice in warfare, and should be implemented in the game for all countries. Maybe it should be restricted to just commando type units.

Re: Wishlist

At first thought I really liked the Fast Flak idea, but after further thought you wouldn't be able to tell if the enemy has a lot flak in the area. I would like to see flak and anti-air combat in...

Airstrike Question

Couple of questions here:

(1) Do you think it's best to have all weapon systems turned on or turn some off so as to conserve ammunition?

(2) Will aircraft reload after making a strike?
