  1. You also have a app called Sim Dashboard, there´s other free apps that I can´t recall right now but you do have alternatives to the Elgato Stream Deck for free, or a minor price.

  3. Hope everyone has a safe and joyful holiday season 🍻 For those who don´t celebrate these holidays, take advantage and have a delicious meal, and not to many drinks, well all the drinks you want but don´t drive! Red
  4. The man is in the army, and at the selling price on sale why not buy him a couple of beers 🍻 So I bought it and oh boy, brutal you say? Get wrecked left and right! The animations (ragdoll physics) are very well done, just for that alone It´s worth a shoot.
  5. Haven´t seen anything saying COOP/MP till date but who knows, and there hasn't been any updates lately because the guy is in the Army. He will be back at it next month. Here´s a roadmap... https://trello.com/b/51rhHKIA/warbox-update-roadmap It does look cool! I hope it gets somewhere and yeah coop would be nice.
  6. Warbox Steam (50% off, 4€) https://store.steampowered.com/app/1550710/Warbox/ Red

    Yes I get what you mean with the folks on the Dreadnought forum. I got slammed on my first post because I said I would prefer a dedicated (or GOG) launcher that could work offline, Instead of the Steam launcher and Steams politics. I see that some are quite burnt, I guess due to the fact the game has been in WIP for such a long time, or that die hard fans, including fanboys are just like that for the most part, because I see this in most sim forums no mater what branch. I already have Dawn of the Battleships, and Monroe´s Legacy in the basket. Mainly because It makes more sense to start from here and later move onto other more involving titles. I recently bought a used copy of (reference for Command at Sea) Jane´s Fighting Ships of WWII. The second hand market is of great source for this hobby. I payed 15€ and Its in a good condition. Most of these titles are old so you can get them fairly cheap. So yeah Its a good source. My eyes are old and TBH I rather read a book, but I must add that the font used in these old books Is freaking small! It´s like the old Avalon Hill rule booklets!

    @Mirzayev You can browse the forum below, It´s from the Ultimate Admiral: Dreadnoughts (Game-Labs). Nothing like fans for help, there´s quite some Info to be found. https://forum.game-labs.net/forum/186-historical-and-maritime-discussions/

    Thanks for the Info. Do you have any recommendations for modern naval warfare (ASUW)? @Mirzayev Sorry to hear that. I am late to the news.

    This is a good read as well, consider the man´s age so It just might end up being a classic...

    I really wish Peter would record at least at 720p, but hey It´s his recording! Tabletop (TTS) works pretty good for this I must add.

    Oh I see, that´s a great start If I may say. Short range engagements and as you say, no high-tech or airplanes, which all together make it less daunting as a start. Now that you mentioned it, Its the most logical thing to do if one want´s to get Into the system and terms found In the ATG´s series of naval warfare games. Mind you I am not even at a beginners level of Harpoon V, there´s a lot to digest here, but as It stands now, Harpoon V Is finally at the level of the new (more streamlined) system found with Command at Sea, so basically If you know one system you can play any of the ATG series naval simulations. Another good alternative of which I picked up recently Is Convoy: Deadly Waters, by Clash of Arms. Not through it yet but It is much easier to grasp and for now it looks a tad bit more solo friendly. It´s not available as PDF so you do need to buy a physical copy, you get two booklets, one for the opfor and another for the convoy. You don´t actually control the convoy but you do so the escort fleet. You also get a CD with all the data cards. There´s a dedicated group over at Groups.io with Info and user made data cards etc. I´ll be doing a video review soon. https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/63972/convoy-deadly-waters-gibraltar-run-1941-1942 I did end up collecting a bunch of sheets etc. with the Fighting Wings collection by J.D. Webster (CoA). I recently bought Wings for the Motherland (my Christmas present ), and I also have Whistling Death and you can easily build a lot of paper work with these types of systems. I still have to make up my mind how to organize everything, but I do find that having the data annexes on PDF is very convenient because you really only need the data for the units that are in the scenario your playing, and all those go into there own reference/stats and log sheets while playing so for me there´s really no need to print the whole book out, just what you need to play the given scenario. I am very fascinated with both the ATG series and the Fighting Wings series, great stuff IMHO. I am waiting for CoA to re-release Close Action: The Age of Fighting Sail Vol. 1, I was so close to picking that up in It´s box version last year, and I really regret that I didn´t now! That´s the problem with wargame boardgames, short prints and they go out of stock fast! At least the good one´s do. https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/3553/close-action-age-fighting-sail-vol-1 Still glad your into this, and I am not the only one here! Cheers

    I agree. I really tried to like the Wargame franchise but It just doesn't click for me. Strangely I like the Steel Division series better. Never been a fan of fast paced (unit spam) RTS games TBH.
  16. It runs alright on my old PC (i5 3rd gen. 8ram + GTX1060 (6GB VRAM).
  17. Ready or Not is now available as EA on Steam... https://store.steampowered.com/app/1144200/Ready_or_Not/
