Re: Anybody else finding this "Yes" button balky?

Bru, I run into it all the time. It has something to do with the level of changes you make during an editing session. If you make a "lot" of changes, it saves pretty much with one click. If you only make a minor text change or something like that, you have to try to save it twice. I think. At least ...

Re: How do you spend your time in OOB?

I spend a lot of time (too much) on the campaign I am about to release (finally). I much prefer playing PvP. Also, I enjoy helping others with their beta versions (as a player/critic, not a development advisor). At one point, I want to fully explore all the other user-developed content. Finally, I p...

Re: One thing I would mod . . .

Gabe,
I think I'll modify the skin to look like in Bruce's (bottom) pic, but otherwise it's working alright and will be added to my mod.
Man, those look NICE!

Re: Order of Battle - Discord Channel

Shards, I been poking around this Discord thang. It looks like it could be very useful e.g., when testing scenarios and so on. This would have been really helpful during beta tests of my scenarios. Question -- I have my Discord Tag. How do I find out everybody else's? Do you think it is a bad idea f...

Bru,

Yes, I was thanking you for seconding my request.

And thanks for the pictures.

Re: First Tournament

I was only kidding about missing the start. Just my jabbering.

But I won't miss it.

I think I like the tourney format. It's better than single elimination by a long shot. Everybody gets to play 3 games -- I like that.

Re: One thing I would mod . . .

From https://armyhistory.org/u-s-and-german-field-artillery-in-world-war-ii-a-comparison/: America added another element to forward observation: the light airplanes previously referred to by Rommel. Initially the Army Air Corps refused to listen to the to the light plane manufacturers’ pleas to be i...

Re: One thing I would mod . . .

Bebro,

I request that we include a Piper Cub as a recon plane for US forces. This was common in WWII and we only have Navy Recon planes that look awful when used with Army troops.

what about that? Thanks!

ps, should I move this item to a new thread?

Re: US 3d ID Beta Round 2

Mascarenhas
Lightnings were widely used as recon and photo
We already have P-38 Lightnings aloft. They require refueling, though. I will ask Shards to include Pipers in the US Recon Roster.

Thanks!

Re: What is your favorite MP scenario?

Karis, I did play Poland and the Polish side was like a 3-day ass whipping. I think I played it two or three times on both sides. It hews quite closely to the historical events. Even though it was hard playing the Poles, I had to hustle on the German side to get the win. I mean, historically, the ba...

Re: US 3d ID Beta Round 2

Gabe,
These are excellent comments, both your details and opinions.

Thanks for taking the time to play and report. Looking forward to your next review!

Btw, you finally clued me in as to how to get rid of the airstrip - take the construction group out of core! Thanks!

Re: What is your favorite MP scenario?

I beat Erik on both sides at once when he was designing it,

It seemed leaning USSR though. We'll see what Brenmusik has to say when we're done. He's a solid player so we should get a good assessment. I'm playing the Soviet side.

I will try the Russian campaign but now I'm busy with Eriks Road to Moscow.

That's a lot of fun.
