  1. You know, I've been around here for about 12 years now, and this is the first time anything like this has ever happened. Mainly because in the past people had thicker skins, and could deal with things like an adult. There have been many people offended by various things, and some of it was aired in the open, but in the end it was resolved and moved on from. It seems that now, the intense urge of some to be so PC, has in my opinion ruined things. The people who cause all the trouble, are the ones taking offense, to everything anybody says or does, and the rest of us suffer the penalties. I don't know for sure what happened, but I've got a good idea, and I find it to be totally ridiculous. It sounds like some serious school yard crap is going on, and instead of hashing things out like adults or ignoring it and going on about one's business, some people prefer running to mama and tattling. Why not get rid of said offended/er, and let the adults continue to conduct themselves in a manner befitting virtual warriors.

    PS. All this back channel whining is going to fracture this already small community, and drive people away. Some people get offended by certain things, while others joke about them and take nothing much at all seriously. My thoughts have always been that if you don't like something, go away. If I didn't like something on the internet, so much that it affected me in my everyday life, I would go away. Here is my plea; To whomever caused this whole fiasco, please go away!

  2. That would work, but if you have a sort of narrative for a scenario or something like that, it can make it harder to find a map to fit. Then you have to make one, which I'm sure everyone knows is a very long process if you want it to look even halfway decent. Really it was more thinking out loud, whilst waiting for coffee to kick in.


  3. I was just reading the thread about map making, and something occurred to me. What about the ability to rotate a map in the mission editor. That would put a whole new perspective on a given map. At least for myself there have been many times I've looked through just about all the terrain maps looking for "the right" one, that fits a narrative, and see what I want but it needs rotated 90 degrees. For instance, to make a river with a large city frontage run north/south, instead of east/west.


  4. Yeah, and there's nowhere within 1000 miles of here that I can get it. That was the highlight of my trip to the UK. Drinking an Old Peculiar in the Imperial War Museum. Good beer, tanks, airplanes and artillery pieces, it was friggin great.
