  2. Much enjoyed this read! Thank you @Los. Most likely I will get the book also mentioned. In the above doc it´s mentioned that Balck was working on his "war dairy", or is "Order in Chaos" a translated version of such war dairy? This might be a good read too from Mellenthin... Panzer Battles: A Study of the Employment of Armor in the Second World War BTW, it´s this James F.

  8. I just ordered the above UO I find the system very interesting, will see how I can figure out a way to solo it. There is one solo/co-op scenario included, so that might help to figure out how to apply it to other gameplay. The designer Sébastien de Peyret, is a ex French (MOUT) Infantry trainning officer...

  11. I agree, this phrase has been used by many dev´s. The airframe we flew in the acrobatic team I used to be in for DCS was always due in "two weeks", said by the dev/leader of the team. It´s still not finished, and that was three years ago So when some bug would creep up, it was like, "when is this going to be fixed" we would ask, and the reply was..."In two weeks"! By this Iam not saying this is the same case, Iam just saying it´s a tipical phrase dev´s use, like "it´s done when it´s done". Back to the reality check, Iam no code wiz or anything alike, but back in the day´s, I did some research regarding maps for my Garmin eTrex Vista HCx for my mountaineering needs, and at the time, maps were done with apps like "Autocad" were you use "nodes" to fix positions (summits) and terrain relief´s. Iam sure there´s better solutions now day´s but that dosen´t mean it´s a easy job, or easy to implement to the point were disk space and CPU resources are not contemplated for the end user. To find a balance and make the whole thing happen must be quite challenging. Just my €0.2 worth...
