[QUOTE=deltasquid;22148830]You do know this game was made by an Ukrainian developer, right?[/QUOTE] Yes, for the worldwide market, not just ukrainian and russian :v:
[QUOTE=deltasquid;22148830]You do know this game was made by an Ukrainian developer, right?[/QUOTE] Complex but fun PC games are the only thing that keeps the PC as platform alive, and most of those come from eastern Europe.

I just spent an hour in the editor continuing a map I made a while ago. I've had a couple of problems though: Textures tend to be jaggy as hell round the edges no matter what 'smooth/sharp' and 'slow/fast' setting they're on. I managed to partially hide it by using only very, very similar textures for the part I did. How do you make it so that a vehicle on the map starts damaged? One area is a German supply/fueling/repair depot and I'd like to have a tank sitting in it, but would rather it wasn't immediately operable. I had a massive POW camp (Well it was more of a concentration camp but don't tell Digital Mindsoft :v:) on the map at one stage but the editor crashed, taught me to save every few minutes.
How the cocks do you people get maps working ingame, mine are always greyed out in the menu.
Has anybody used the DCG? If you haven't heard of it, I'll give a quick synopsis. You pick scenarios, and a faction. You then buy units (Out of a very large selection) and then there is a dynamic campaign that pits you against the enemy you chose. My favorite is being USA during the normandy invasions. The germans always have some armored divisions hiding around. Here is the moddb page. [url]http://www.moddb.com/mods/dynamic-campaign-generator-dcg[/url] Here is another good mod. Makes really large battles possible. Best for multiplayer. [url]http://www.moddb.com/mods/commanders-of-war-ii[/url]

Just had a 2vs2 match, I had a Pershing that I was repairing (crushed hull) in the middle of a field quite close to the frontline. So I'm repairing this tank my team-mate, then his artillery fires a bad shot which kills my crewman that was repairing the tank. Then I see one of his crewmen sprinting for the tank and starting to repair it. Me: "Hey that's my tank, you killed my repairer at least leave it alone" Him: "Yeah sure" (and keeps on repairing it) Me: "Leave my tank the fuck alone" Him: "Sure" (finished repairing it, jumps in) Me: "I'm warning you, get out of my tank" Him: "Yeah sure I'm scared" (starts driving the tank towards his spawn) Me: "Alright that's enough" (I fire wth another Pershing and destroy the turret, killing the crew) Him: "WHY THE FUCK DID YOU DO THAT YOU IDIOT!" Me: "I warned you" Him: "MORON, MAYBE I SHOULD BOMB YOU!" Me: "Oh really?" (I fire with the Calliope on his spawn, taking out a pair of tanks and all his artillery, making it impossible for him to bomb anything) Him: *silence, then ragequit* This isn't the first time stuff like this happens either, usually it's some Russian guy that kills my repairer, repairs my tank, drives away in it, even though I keep telling him to stop (they answer something in Russian, which I'm quite sure is not something polite). Seriously it's perfectly ok to repair and take a teammates vehicle, but when they kill my crewman to steal it it pisses me the hell off.
Some screens. Me vs. Orkel in a game of Frontlines. My tank got stuck in the ice.

The T29 is amazing, but it doesn't come with a repair kit if I recall correctly. The sound the turret makes when it turns is nightmare fuel though. [editline]11:39PM[/editline] Hey Uberman, got any suggestions for what I should buy for DCG?
Hey i've got this game and i know it's good but i just can't seem to get into it, probably from lack of people to play with. I was wondering if anyone wanted to give it a go :v:
Oh mein got.. It's a slugger.

[QUOTE=Orkel;22153101]Should use 1.17.5.[/QUOTE] I would if I could, but I desync with every single server that's on the same patch.
Hey guys I would love to play some MoW sometime, it's been so long since I've played online. You can go ahead and add me on Steam, hopefully I'll be on in the next few days
Best RTS ever. I never get bored.
Anybody want a game some time? I've been playing with some friends for the past few days, but the host generally has to leave after an hour or two (IE after two battles). Add me on Steam if you want to play. [url]http://steamcommunity.com/id/Furohman[/url]
[QUOTE=Uberman77883;22153210]What faction are you playing and how many points do you have.[/QUOTE] Nevermind, it doesn't extract the maps correctly.
Started on a new map :v: [img_thumb]http://thepointofbuilding.net/uploads/mow_editor%202010-05-25%2015-49-31-03.jpg[/img_thumb]
Looks nice, can't wait to try it.

Sadly, there are no maps with ships. There is one with a barge (which has 2 88s and 2 quad-AAs), which while it packs quite a punch, it's also very fragile. Yes there is Iwo-Jima in BoW which has some ships, but they all have some puny machine guns only.
