  1. Question on Russian (Soviet) engineers

    I'll go with that.
  2. So, they have engineer teams like everyone else. They have the MT-LB vehicles, sure. What about everything else? I don't see a recovery vehicle, nor a MCLIC directly available. For scenario designing, do we use NATO stuff such as the Wisent and the US MCLIC? Or did the Russians not have a care about this stuff and figured meaty engineer teams come a dime-a-million? A WiKi search only came up with Colebrook's famous breaching video.
  3. Russian Federation Motorized Rifle Regiment

    Ok, now I officially quit.
  4. Russian Federation Motorized Rifle Regiment

    I think what you have shown is an earlier TO&E from the 1980s. I shall look into this more. I have had a LOT of troubles saving both the callsigns and the templates. It would look like I was successful, only to see the original template a day later. It's actually frustrating. In the beginning, a window would pop up, asking for which company, and a single unit (usually the BN or RGT CO vehicle) would appear. I seemed to have fixed that problem, just can't remember how. It's a real headache. Therefore, I shall withdraw from this maddening project and leave it for techies far more skilled than I. I miss the days of paper print...

    Ah, says the blind man. Simplicity is the name of the game. I need to have a root beer float and just play the game.

    The 1980 template was the base format that I used. Ran into a number of problems during the conversion. 1, No company level CO vehicles. The unit creation menu would not let me just make them up with the earlier setup unless they were Battalion vehicles. 2, The absence of MG platoons in the modern template. This was easy to fix by deleting them. But it led to a gap in the call signs. So I moved platoons around to compensate. But this still led to the lack of Co vehicles. As you can see, I still lack CO tanks. 3, readjusting all of this to fit the call sign formats. Now THIS was a headache, perhaps because I am not a computer guru. This current modern format was the best I could come up with. Again, I am certain there is someone who can do a better job in far less amount of time. What I could not discover is whether or not platoons or companies are labeled within the battalions or the regiments in modern Russian units. I'll get back to work on this. I created this just for ease of scenario building. Hoping I really didn't waste any time on this. But input is greatly appreciated. I'm just human...
  7. Being the guy that I am, I decided to design a modern RU Motorized Rifle Regiment based on the 752nd MRR, 3rd Motor Rifle Division, 20th Army. The goal was to set up a unit for modern large scale battles in the 2010-present era. A number of problems came up. The first and foremost was squeezing all the unit designations within the 16 company limit. I may have succeeded, but this led to another problem: CO units at the company level. As you can see, company CO tracks are labeled as HQ 01-09 to represent the company they are in command of. But what happened was that I used an entire company call sign in order to even have the darn things to begin with. The first pic represents the entire regiment, the others breaks it down to mech infantry battalions, tank battalion, and regimental support. What I do not know, is if I can design separate battalion templates, then combine them all into a scenario and be able to merge them all as a cohesive regiment. Therefore, I am working on a modern Rifle Battalion. This should be a much easier task for me. The ultimate goal is for me to design campaigns for my own or for the SB nation...if I can remember how to do that. Been a year or five... Please, feel free to comment and/or correct me on my works. Surely, I made a misstep somewhere and/or someone knows a better way.
  8. Map Request Thread

    I would like to file a request for a terrain and height map of eastern Ukraine. From Kharkiv in the north to Mariupol and the Sea of Azov in the south. From Dnipro in the west, to the Russian border in the east. Or as much that would fit. I want to create my own campaign there in a fictitious war between the already heated nations. If I can design the missions well enough, willing to share with the SB nation. I was supposed to submit my request here, my bad.
  9. Ukraine map

    I remember this one. Had to bow out due to senior year finals (I did graduate on time). If I can get one more map, I would be very happy. Now, if I can find Rolling Thunder as a start... UPDATE: Well, looks like the scenarios and maps from that Thunder Run were deleted. Back to the drawing boards and request forms...

    Out of simple curiosity, how much IS TerraTools?

    Oop, sorry...
  14. Wish list

    Fellow Treadheads, how would you feel about the option of splitting up units during the planning phase of a mission? Good idea? Bad? Meh?
  15. Hummer M2HB MG mounts damaged on game launch

    @Gibsonm: I did try the test you provided. Everything went fine. Despite having to work through the weekend, I shall do my best and compile scenarios of Hummer mount problems. Rotareneg mentioned how they may LOOK fine until the mission starts, then the damage occurs. I shall also do my best to provide a list of scenarios where the damage does not start off. Going to be fun weekend
