I can do 4.0 if its consecutive sats.I prob can make the 1st 3.28 if all are played in one sat.why not scrap the .28 and do a 4.0 only being the massive improvments?


M1A2 OR M2




For the page or so of reasons I already outlined.

I thought I'd been fairly clear, but once again for the "English is not my native language" readers :) :


Since I'm not inside the tent and don't know:


- The exact date it will be released.

- How many people will use it straight away.

- What sort of machine it needs to run well.

- The impacts on LAN play.

- How long after the normal executable is released will the server executable be released.

- How long will it take for Server licenses to be ungraded.

- Whether it will have some massive impact on the 3.028 scenarios (since no doubt once you save a scenario in 4.x you wont be able to revert to 3.028).

- Whether there will be some unforeseen "bug" that makes it "unplayable" for a short period after release and require a hotfix.



If, I have no idea BTW, there is a "world changing" item in 4.0 (say a playable Marder and / or Jaguar) then it may well be adjusted since that will have an impact on the German mission.


But overall, I'm working on it being a 3.028 event. :)



The compromise I am suggesting is to rework the missions once played in 3.028 (a known quantity) and incorporate the changes (once known) and roll them out one at a time.


I CAN'T revise all "just in case 4.0 is out and perfect" on the 11th.


And I CAN'T just reschedule the whole thing for a different weekend - hence why I gave several months notice.


If Rolling Thunder in 3.028 no longer appeals, great, wait until 2017 for a 4.x version.

Because these take WEEKS of work for $0 (people may have noticed my reduced attendance at TGIF as that time is re-directed into Rolling Thunder).


Feel free to create your own in your spare time.

Well there are M3A2 (ODS)s in Mission 2 - (Being an ACR they don't get M2) :)


And as far as I know the mission time frame matches the M3 ODS model so again no need to make it 4.0 just for that.


Basically I'm (me, myself and I - no huge team) 80% finished with building the missions in 3.028.


It will go out in 3.028.


Then when I get 4.0 (and confirm it runs on my machine, etc.) I'll (again me, myself and I) start work on converting them to 4.x.


Then we can run the 4.x versions on consecutive Saturday nights (GMT) and people can compare and contrast the 4.x experience to the 3.028 one.


If they want to skip Rolling Thunder and play the 4.x versions I can't stop them.

So the individual Mission specific threads are now "up".


Please review to make sure I didn't miss anything.


Be aware that for some of you I've had to move you (e.g. 2 people wanted to command a specific Platoon, etc.).


To resolve that I've gone with "first in best dressed" and the person displaced has the same job but elsewhere - so if two people both wanted to lead a tank platoon, one got the specific platoon they asked for the other is still a tank platoon commander but a different tank platoon to the one they specified.


If that's a big issue ("Callsign XYZ has a special place as I used to fill that role in real life", etc.) let me know and I'll try and adjust to accommodate your needs.

Looks like I should be able to play all three missions.  I would prefer a mech infantry position in each mission please.  Recon as a second choice.


OK, so can you look at each of the respective mission threads, find a vacancy and then make a post in that thread saying where you'd like to go.


There is no "recon" per se except mission 2 where everyone is in a recon position given its an ACR. :)

Would be happy to participate in all 3 missions. Feel free to slot me in anywhere you need a body.


Thanks for that - I've found the CO for each mission then. ;)


(be careful what you wish for). :)

Cheers, I had not realised the CO slots were still available! ;)


This maybe a terminology issue but by CO I'm not referring to a sub unit commander - I'm referring to the Commanding Officer (the vehicle at the top of the list).
