  1. +10 /thread. cap or be capped as Sir Drake1 always said.
  2. insightful and experience-based answer, gsc4free. thx. to OP > so in otherwords, usually pop wins. 1. see thermopylae, vietnam, italian invasion of greece (wwii); italian collapse in north east africa (wwii) for another, yet rare-ish point of view 2. also search kilemall's posts re "Pop Neutrality"
  3. squad missions are essential to expanding the game just like any other game with squads, guilds, clans, tribes, whatever. there is a simple blend that would be to the benefit of squads, CRS and new/lone wolf players: 1. allow unlimited squad missions, but squads pay for them (either per mission/micro-transaction, or a squad monthly/yearly fee or a specific squad/squad member sub). if squad missions are important to current and past players, we/they would pay for them as part of the trade off for exclusiveness 2. joining a squad would have increased value for new players since many/most would want to go on squad missions or be part of something larger 3. most, but not all, squads, at least on larger focused missions (ie. capping a town, not capping a specific depot or blowing a fb) would also see the benefit (or if they were gentlemen would do so anyway) of creating a non squad mission/fru (by one of the squad members) to aid, support, flank, or fulfill the overall goal. 4. some squads, or smaller squads might choose not to pay for squad missions and would be setting frus, running missions etc that would be open to all players 5. squad missions might actually add to the cohesiveness and immersion of the game (as it did in the old days) by enticing new players/lone wolves to actually join a squad and get involved and yes, pay their share of the cost.
  4. Railroad Tycoon 2 had a couple of military scenarios: Battle of Britain and Mother Russia. BoB was a short campaign - repairing Brit rail and supply lines during the Blitz. Mother Russia was very complex - the Russian player built, repaired, created and rerouted trains to supply troops and supplies to counter Barbarossa.
  5. you mean the chat would be in Flint?
  6. since upgrading to Windows 10 my second towing account now: 1. ctd's after 5/10 mins and/or 2. ctds on switching missions or cities anyone else have this issue and/or know of any settings or workarounds required for win10? never had issues prior with win7 or 8.
  7. thx for these answers. trying 'run as admin' slowed down the ctds but still happening. must be my computer. will try some other stuff and report back if solved.
  8. good question. however: since a 'long time ago' (aka 'old school days') bridges have never been able to be set as ground unit mission objectives (by original truck ms or frus or new truck frus) whether to repair, blow up or simply interdict the bridge. not sure if anyone actually remembers why this inability to mission target bridges exists. the workaround has always been to set the mission objective to the nearest to the bridge friendly or enemy facility (ab, dock, depot, even fb, whatever). don't think there is a bridge on the map that cannot be closely (ie. close enough for engineers/sappers to blow/repair) targetted in this manner. this mission targetting issue is different than the ability of HC to set AO (destroy) or DO (repair) objectives on bridges themselves.
  9. very cool memory page, frogdeth, thank you. should post it everywhere.
  10. prayers for you and if your time comes, say some for us from up in heaven mate.
  11. wb ceska. best rifleman in the game. ever. where is darkvex, jamieg, merek, okiemoe and bud4u?
  12. wtf? try to make a free account to sign up for premium for a friend and no activation notice? tried twice, two different usernames and email accounts? how to solve this? want my money > help me out!
  13. yeah well, try again from the beginning and this is what you get: unfortunately there are no email activations sent to any of the 3 different emails, under 3 different names I tried. This is all you see now when trying: Free Account Signup Request You have been sent an activation email! You must click on the link included in the e-mail to activate your account. Make sure support@playnet.com is added to your e-mail address book. I GIVE UP.
  14. its not fixed. you can't start over from the beginning because the registration account page rejects user names and emails that have not been activated but presumably must be floating somewhere in CRS space. WHAT NOW, please? THIS FROM A BUILDER, HERO and PLAYER WHO WANTS TO OPEN NEW PAYING PREMIUM ACCOUNTS and CANNOT.
  15. here is the issue OHM: I try to create NEW PAYING ACCOUNT twice; no activation, now I try again as you say in other thread and I GET: a) USER NAME NOT AVAILABLE EMAIL NOT VALID when they are the usernames and emails of the accounts that DID NOT RECEIVE ACTIVATION wtf? how many fake emails does one need to GIVE YOU MONEY????
  16. what other thread?> not helpful.
  17. this is still happening to me > have premium account players ready to pay but no activation emails for 2 days. whats up? this is as of JAN 23 2014
  18. gifting is good > but another issue > I'm trying to set up a new paying account for a nephew and a) system won't accept my email current (wwiiol existing account related email) address as valid created TWO NEW gmail accounts for new account and neither has received authentication emails what's up?
  19. yes. the above patch (takes about 30 secs) as recommended by OldZeke has worked for me and most squadmates eliminating the ctd (but not the long delay/hang) on entering workd, switching missions, brigades and/or towns.
  20. from Willy's thread in the barracks. check these out.
  21. THIS THREAD with the VIDEO LINKS should be STICKIED HERE for all new players. welcome to the game, mates, S!
  22. same: about 80% of time; either just as FRU is almost finished, or immediately after it is finished 5 times happened was setting 2nd (new) fru on same mission as ML: other times first fru from truck
