    I said most, and one doesn't make all of them or some. A lot of "niche" games are not what some call user friendly, or easy to get Into. Most wargames (tabletop) have a hefty, and even dense rule book that scare the crap out of most general public. In turn It takes some effort to get Into which the majority are not willing to do.

    As for the terrible UI, most complex games have terrible UI 😉

    The unit movement is based on a hex grid, although you don´t see that layer. That might be why you think It s clunky, or you might have another reason.
  6. DCS, eat your heart out! This will cover the whole planet like MSFS does! Meta Immersive Synthetics home site: https://meta.aero/mis/ Hopefully it will be available to consumer audience. Red

    It doesn't seem you can use cover in buildings, but still nice to see this in CMO...

    @Mezentius Your welcome! There´s two that I know of, but the one you want is the official one which is Admiralty Trilogy. There´s also a Discord group for Harpoon V.

    The Harpoon series (Admiralty Trilogy), now in it´s 5th. edition has always been able to be played PBEM. Same with Command at Sea (2nd. edition), and J.D. Websters Fighting Wings Series. All three have there own group at Groups.io were most of the gaming set-up/meets happen. Just for the record. With some aid tools like SimPlot 2 to make life easier... A bigger learning curve then CMO if your willing to "dive" in, but the upside is that you have control of most of what´s going on, aside from the dice rolls. Most of this stuff happens under the hood in CMO, which is not a bad thing either, I like them both. A lot of simulated warfare rule sets can be played PBEM, it just takes time, and effort to learn some rule sets like the ones mentioned above. Among others, you have Fistful of TOW´s for ground combat which seems quite in depth.
  10. I moved to a new (old) house two months ago, so I guess I am out too. Still, thank you very much eSim Team! Best customer service in the gaming Industry, and I don´t say that because of this video!

  13. Great pics! I bet that was a surprise indeed! I am sure the wildlife wasn't to happy about it though 😃 I want to update my Meade to the recently new Explorer Scientific ED80 (80mm f/6 APO) when I get the money together for it. https://explorescientificusa.com/products/ed80-essential-series-air-spaced-triplet-refractor A short review: https://astrobackyard.com/refractor-telescope/ Sorry for the off topic folks!
  14. ^ I also do alot of hiking, and nature (+ solitude) is what soothes my soul, I add some bushcarft and I feel great out there. So yes, I understand what you mean because I have been doing this since I was a teen, and no, I would not go that route either, although I admire mountain guides, I rather preserve my nature experiences for myself. I also got into photography this year. Bought myself a Rebel T7i and a Sony RX100 III this year. A side from nature photography, I will also try astrophotography with the Rebel with a small Meade 80mm f/5 refractor scope I have, but that´s more into the future.
  15. I have to disagree with you here. Even if you don´t do what you like for a living changes are going to summon on you anyway no matter what, that´s part of the substances of life. We overcome, we procced, we change, although we try to change the least to maintain purity, self respect and discipline. At least some of us do. Working and getting paid for what you love/like is the best thing one can do IMO. I personally consider people who love, and enjoy there job very fortunate. But in doing so, that doesn't mean it´s going to be easy, or not have any issues! Even a farmer who loves his land is going to have unfortunate problems that he/she will have to overcome. We regards to burning out, well life will burn you out one way or the other on multiple occasions without warning, that´s just how it goes. As they say, "when the going gets tough, the tough get going". As for YT, you have to be very constant, 2 or 3 videos a week, have charisma and try to be a bit different then the rest, be educated and polite with no preferences or dislikes on others opinions, and be able to choose your topics very wisely. Seem that you are enjoying what your doing, and know what your doing, specially if your doing tutorials. Positive attitude, and try to be your best, at least on the surface! Not that this is a formula, but just how I see it from alot of videos I watch. Sure something can break your heart, but the more they break your heart, the better you get at it, We are meant to survive!
  16. The core camping is finally out after two years of waiting. It´s not fully Implemented but at least it´s a start!
