Re: Other games you've played that you like

My brother found this:

I ended up using it in that weird New York-New Jersey War that I was talking about earlier. Could come in handy for...

Re: End date 2030, 100 years...

Sorry to get finicky, but isn't "rifled musket" an oxymoron? The term has been used to describe muzzle-loading rifles during the US civil war, but technically if the firearm's barrel is spirally...

Re: End date 2030, 100 years...

In 2030, there will probably still be people using Mosin-Nagants or Lee-Enfields in places like Donbass and Syria. Did anyone have a Brown Bess in World War I?

Re: Building height - editing

So, imagine a world where vehicular tunnels are impossible and they're all bridges instead? I can live with that. :)

Re: Building height - editing

What about tunnels?

I'm trying to make a map of Jersey City (don't ask) and I'm wondering what I should do with the likes of the Hudson Tubes and Holland Tunnel. I could make bridges out of them I...

Re: EU v NATO or instead of NATO

There were several scenarios from Jane's Fighters Anthology where something like this actually happened. Defending the Kingdom, IIRC.

Re: Israel

If you think their defensive R&D is impressive, you should see what they do in agriculture. All the best computer-control systems for pig and chicken farms come from Rotem.

Re: Realistic settings?

I screw around with the default training levels fairly often, and I've found reasons to mess with rout/rally (simulating die-hard fanatics or indifferent conscripts). A lot of scenarios designed for...

Not the only option the better option is to use artillery, then your MGs to cover any holes, maybe if needs be the odd squad.

Re: Helicopter armor

I don't use helos very often, but when I do I tend to use them the same way I use horse cavalry in WinSPWW2: fast, potent but fragile offensive force. You use them as a mobile reserve to deal with...

Re: Vehicles & Trees

I never saw the "woods" represented in the game as true virgin forest but more tame stuff with plenty of clearings, old logging trails and firebreaks that you could follow if you took your time.

Re: Question Re Red, Blue and Green OOBs

Yeah, Switzerland didn't really move from a 1918-type arrangement until the 1950's. They're the only ones I know of to still use RT-17s in WinSPMBT.

Speaking of which, is it possible for...

I don't think I've ever seen a shotgun without any sights; all the ones I've ever owned had at least a simple bead on the front of the barrel.
