    Thanks for sharing... But I really don´t get these types of trailers. In this case, the game footage could have been from Wargame Red Dragon. I mean what´s different? Unless you know every single unit (which I don´t) maybe someone would say "hey they added xxx unit to the decks", or the graphics look better. Personally I don´t get it. At least they showed some "game" footage on this trailer, some games not even that! 😄

    It´s a good listen Mirzayev. I did so yesterday (live) with a hot drink as It´s pretty cold around here, and I really enjoyed it. The first part is mainly about what there up to (Larry and Chris), and the second part Is about fire and control and how they Implemented it. I forgot that Chris was Captain of a Virginia class sub and I really enjoy his knowledge. Even if someone is not Interested in the Harpoon rules set It´s still Interesting to give it a listen as how they make design choices, and how they come up with systems (AEGIS) implementations and how complex It can all be In a maritime scenario. Needless to say how difficult it is to make it all happen in a wargame. Personally I am quite fascinated with naval warfare and again with how complex and versatile It can be. I am glad someone here Is Into the Harpoon series, so If I run Into some Issues (which I do), I can maybe ask for some help! I guess I too need to start getting the site-reps that are coming out now after this fifth edition of Harpoon as It makes sense now to keep up to date with the new rules and adjustments. BTW I now also have a softcover of HV because I wanted to see how Wargame Vault Is doing the binding. It´s not bad, you get the front cover In color and the binding Is done In what´s called the American binding which means It´s glued directly to the spine (not sowed).

    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.
  10. 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.
  14. 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!

  17. 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!
