Title: Hello People & Automated Processes
Post by: Cranky on 16 April 2011, 01:40:05
Hi Folks -

I'm a new arrival - I've been reading stuff on this site for a month or so, but this is my first post.

The Estimable Stoffel introduced me to WAT - we are currently playtesting a large CMBB Op of his.

I've designed a few CM scenarios myself - you can find them at TSD.

I'm interested in most things - History, Current Affairs, Science, Real-Life Economics, Books and Movies, Weightlifting, Endurance Sports, and even Games.

I've been playing Combat Mission since CMBO, and I play other games as well - I'm really interested at the moment in a couple of big titles: 'War Plan Orange' and 'Revolution Under Siege' - if anyone has experience with them, please make a comment - they LOOK good - but it's all in the playing, isn't it?

I'm very excited about the upcoming 'Panzer Command Ostfront' - because for me the Eastern Front is where it's at :)

I am also a member of the 'We Band of Brothers' club - I understand that at present there is no overt state of war between them and WAT - I hope this peace can be maintained :)

Looking forward to participating here.

I live in Sydney, Australia, and have a Wife & 3 Cats.

Cheers.

Cool, mate, great introduction! Looks like you will have fun hereā€¦..

 Any chance you could link to those mentioned scenarios of yours?

I am also a member of the 'We Band of Brothers' club - I understand that at present there is no overt state of war between them and WAT - I hope this peace can be maintained :)

Definitely, and indefinitely so: Anybody starting a war on this forum with another one will be "out" faster than he can pronounce it: :adminpower:


We have it in our rules (excerpt below just as a reminder: We dont kill perpetuators instantly, first we advise and try to correct their behaviour, we all active posters - including admins - have slipped sometimes for a sec, thats human...):

- We will NOT discuss how other forums work or how people behave on other boards... (though there is nothing wrong with citing other forums as sources). You have a problem with the works in another forum?: Discuss it there, not here.

Sure thing:

Here are TSD links to three little CM scenarios I did for play against the AI.

I designed these for the WeBoB Monthly Challenge, in which people play the AI and then compare their scores.

As anyone knows, the real Challenge is trying to make the AI a challenge to play against :)

WeBoB members had fun with these, perhaps some WAT-ers will too:

I am currently working on a few more little Battles, as well as some big Operations - available 'When They're Done' :)


As far as War between Clubs goes, I have read the Rules :)

I was just joking about the fact that this Club is dedicated to studying War in all it's forms, and the fact that anytime you get People in Groups, Conflict is not far behind....

Add the Internet to that equation, and sooner or later......

And that's why you guys have a Rule against it, no? :)

Glad to see you joining the site Cranky.

In fact, there has been a bit of a war from WeBoB and WaT as many of the WeBoB members were a part of our Masters Tournament. I think that WeBoB even won the tournament IIRC...

That's the kind of warring between sites we like to see.

I think you'll find PCO to your liking. The series has a couple of steps further to go but it's rapidly getting there with all the changes made to the series with the update. We'll have to try our hand at some games when it's released in about 3 weeks.

Good Hunting.

MR

Hi Cranky, good to see your first posting :)
If you look at the bottom of the forum main page you will see there is a CM section.
You can post your links to the scenarios and of course the actual cm file as attachement and write your own story.
Many people have downloaded my scenarios there as well!

Enjoy your stay!

Henk
