Gen. Miller/Lt. Campbell, Many thanks for your hospitality (long sip of a fresh ice cold beer)….ahh! Oh, yes, Gen. Miller you are correct. Some Southern sympathizer must of added something to my drink trying to keep me off the field and leading my forces to victory. Clearly there can't be a thousand...

Larry Mills, sir! <salute>

This Northerner will answer the call and represent the great state of Michigan! ;o) Put me in. I'm sure I'll bag a couple thousand Rebs along the way. :)

OK, I tried to get a good view from a hill near by to the farmer's barn across the street. The hill top is 3.69 miles away and here are the views: * - Standard View * - 8x Zoom View * - Binocular View Note: I can clearly see the barn from the hill with standard view...small but viewable. The stored ...

I'll try and put this to the test. I live on a rural road near a farm. I can see from the open field a main expressway from the road....~ 3 miles away on a hill. I will take photos from both points....the road and from the farm. I will confirm how much detail can be seen from the road on the hill an...

Gen. Meyer, Sir <salute> I would agree that engineers could add additional features to the game. I know of a couple of games where engineers can build and repair railroads (where other units can destroy rails similar to spiking artillery). This is done on a bit larger scale where the railroad moveme...

MG Mihalik, sir <salute > Mike, amazing job finding that. Here is the extract I was able to find in the article: "The varieties of pocket-glasses may be used at distances of from five to ten miles. A glass known as the carbineer-glass is not larger in diameter than the finger, and may be carrie...

With these games, normally representing 1 hex is equal to 125 yards, what would the normal view range be? How many visible hexes should a unit be able to see? I read that a standard 6 ft. person should be able to view up to 3 miles in open terrain (36 hexes). A maximum of 6 miles with binoculars (72...

Was hoping I would get a reply from Cam on the MAD medals. Not sure if the whole tournament got torpedoed but was just curious. Things seemed to have stopped after the smooth flowing first round :?: I know they can be a lot of work and things bread down. Was just hoping to show off my MAD ribbon. :m...

Lieutenant General Hecht, sir! <salute> Christian, the 20% combat increase would be 20% increase to battle fatigue. The idea is that in the command list you could select "Forced March", or have a button like the formation change as a shortcut, and that would have the following effects: Inc...

MG Mills, sir! <salute> Larry, I think the idea is good and doable. Key would be to present a logic to the development team to see if it can be applied. Without providing a basic logic idea for the change, it's extra work for them to implement. I would say something like this: A "FM" (forc...
