No the addition was after release and had been out for quite some time, if I remember correctly. And I agree about the comparison between original Combat Mission and FOG2. For me, probably 2 of the best games in the last couple decades. Unfortunately CM lost me with their advanced 3d supercool CM2 version. Still play the original CM from time to time but been awhile.
I totally agree with this, CMx1 and FOG2 was a huge impact. I also agree that CMx2 became just too much involved with the ultra realistic email playing experts. All the tools that made CM a joy to play, scaling units, line of sight, ease of identifying forces with colored bases, etc, all taken away to make "as realistic as possible", which it is not, just harder to play. Looks pretty, but not as much fun at all, unless, again, email bouts. FOG2 brings that ease of play back. We love the art, we love the 3D presentation, but we also love ease of use. CMx2 has gone down the road where scenarios for Single Player are hard to find and too difficult to create. Oh well, good luck with that.
I still play all three CMx1 games (CMBO, CMBB, CMAK) and it's great that they run on Windows 10, though for me fog is missing, but not smoke! I'm also playing a lot of FOG2 and Panzer Corps 2. All outstanding games.
Now why are FOG2 DLCs so slow in coming!!! I want more, more, more! We need the FOG1 armies and time eras covered, and there is a lot not touched.
