The Silent Service is a DLC for Command: Modern Operations: Eighteen scenarios, played either in ascending difficulty or chronological order, walk you through the nuances of modern submarine operations, in control of a wide range of submarine classes from both the East and West, in conditions ranging from peacetime to crisis to all-out wa Unfortunately there seems to be a problem with this too. Fantasy General II - Twitch Let's Play series announced! The simulation is controlled by some buttons at the top left of the window. The flight operations are highly evolved, based on experiences dating back to 1922 with USS Langley. CMANO and CMO are pretty complicated simulations with hundreds, or even thousands, of individual units and weapons each of which may have multiple sensors. I also like some descriptive text, as I find scanning through the platform or weapon data doesn’t really tell me what the thing I’m looking at is to be used for (Wikipedia is usually open when I play CMANO). And in addition to the campaigns, multiplayer has also been entirely rebuilt for a modern experience. Point of Contact: For additional assistance regarding the writing and submission of Command Operations Reports, please email NHHC_COR@navy.mil or NHHC_COR@navy.smil.mil, or call (202) 433-9873. In the sixty seconds of real time CMANO managed to run 778 simulated seconds in ‘Don’ and 675 simulated seconds in ‘Hail Mary’. The left most button controls time acceleration which can be x1, x2, x5 or ‘warp speed’ (the simulation runs as fast as the computer allows). Support  |   20 minutes into the future, a spark erupts in the Korean peninsula that will lead to a theaterwide conflagration embroiling the entire Western Pacific and drag all major powers into it. Of course, there is a degree of randomness in this, so differences in the numbers might not show real effects (statistical health warning!) This used to drive me nuts in CMANO where unit selection involved multiple clicks or zooming up and down to try to reach the unit you were after. I’ve already mentioned the issue with the ‘Raid on Kismayo’ scenario, but there were some other gameplay problems too. I’m sure the developers will fix it quickly as they’ve supported CMANO for years, adding lots of new content as well as squashing bugs.

Press I’m using an old fashioned hard drive – if you have an SSD you probably won’t be troubled by this (and probably weren’t in CMANO either!) At the bottom of the main window are buttons that allow you to run the simulation for fixed intervals of simulated time (15sec, 1 min, 5 min and 15 min). The number of infantry sections killed are shown in the table: The thing to look at isn’t the differences between the different weapons, because that’s affected by stuff like damage points, accuracy, etc, but instead to look at the effects of the terrain. A big addition is that database entries now come with images (that are apparently downloaded as required) and some with descriptions. CnCNet: Play C&C1, CO, RA1, CS, AM, TS, FS and YR on modern computers. Turn back the Russian tide in the Ukraine. These can be setup in the game ‘options’ in the same dialogue as the message log items. ?. We can only hope that the work the developers have done on the game engine is with a view to adding the features most requested by players in the future. All the scenarios from the original game are there and have been reworked to include some of the new features in CMO. I know that the developers have claimed that map performance for panning and zooming has been improved in CMO. If you set a particular item to appear in a balloon then the message will appear for a few seconds in a balloon that is tied to the map location that the message refers to. Buy Command: Modern Air / Naval Operations Now! Another great new feature is the list that appears when you click on an area where multiple units are present. This is quite a challenge given the sheer amount of ‘terrain’ present on the planet. This makes it much easier to make sense of things like new contact messages as you can see immediately where the contact is. Command: Modern Operations - v1.02 Official Update, Command Pro employment opportunity in the US, Northern Fury - Check out the book based on CMANO scenarios, Command: Modern Operations Official Discord Channel, Command wins the Charles S. Roberts 2019 award in the category “Best M, Climbing ever higher: Command PE v1.15 released, MOVED: Advice on getting more CALCM and Tomahawk to reach targets. It’s very subjective I know, but I like it! It presents you with the globe and you can zoom down to look in detail at whatever part of the planet you are currently fighting over. CMANO was set to run at its maximum time acceleration (x1800, although my computer never comes close to this) and with no pulse. Although CMO is a new game the only things that are radically different from CMNAO from a player perspective is the ability to link to Tacview and the option to generate quick battles. All but one of the crashes simply shutdown the program and I was easily able to restart the scenario I was playing from autosave. I thought this was a new feature as I had never used it in CMANO, but it was there – the difference was that the button wasn’t next to the simulation control button. Everything else is pretty similar to the older game but nicer. I opened the scenario up in the editor and the cars path is plotted, but the new pathing algorithm avoids this path and generates its own (very badly). Command: Modern Operations is the next generation in cross-domain modern wargaming. The message balloons were really useful. This only happened in the one scenario, but there does seem to be a problem there. The record button has a red circle on it and several times in the heat of battle I found myself hitting it in the hope of stopping the simulation – I might get used to it, but I find it slightly irritating. Occasionally the information displayed just seem to make no sense, for example this unit display appeared while I was playing Khark Island Raid. The level of zoom isn’t as high as Google Earth – you can’t make out house sized structures – but it gives enough detail to help produce a real sense of immersion when planning a strike. The ‘Relief Layer’ is also the same as CMANO but much more useful than BMNG as it helps spot valleys to hide things in. It has been two years already since Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown was released, reaching more than 2.5 million units sold worldwide. The Operations Department is responsible for collecting, cataloging, analyzing and distributing combat information vital to the accomplishment of the ship’s offensive and defensive missions. For me, the big omission in CMO is an advanced strike planner and the poll on the Matrix games site suggests that many players feel the same way. You can then select the unit you want by simply clicking it on the list. If you’ve previously bought LIVE scenarios or battlesets like Chains of War then these are available in CMO too. Each soldier has to be trained and uses different weapons. MOVED: ingame map layers downloadable ? A few more acceleration intervals would be handy as warp speed on simpler scenarios is really fast and it’s easy to miss things if you don’t have pop-ups set. Command: Chains of War is a DLC for Command: Modern Operations. I also don’t see myself using the quick battle generator as the scenario editor is easy to use and much more flexible. The addition of terrain and its effects on both ground units and the things targeting them is potentially a big addition to the game, and something I’m excited about. There is also another row of buttons at the top of the window that allow you to do things like plot courses, access the formation editor, etc. You can make up your own mind as to whether that's a good enough upgrade price or not but I’d personally wouldn't pay more than £20 for it if I'm taking it on faith that the developers will fix the problems and add more content that I think the platform actually needs. New Battlestar Galactica Deadlock: Resurrection content coming soon! Do not be afraid of Command: Modern Operations, Warfare Sims have been showing off Command Multiplayer, You are not ready for Command: Modern Operation’s release next month, Here’s your first look at space 4X game Distant Worlds 2, Further Reading: Christmas 2020 books for the discerning wargamer, The Wargamer’s Wife: Holiday Gift List 2020. If you don’t like this (and I still haven’t got used to it) then it’s possible to switch back to a ‘Raw text view’. The new update for Armored Brigade is live. Instead of Microsoft grey, all of the dialogues and windows backgrounds are now dark grey with, mainly, white writing. I’ve no idea why this is the case – the aircraft in the jungle did seem to take more time to actually drop the guided bombs but the WRA was the same and the individual targets should have been far enough apart to avoid splash damage. I had to restart my computer to clear the problem, although I was still able to continue from the autosave.
