The way I read it, that's what I did, but you dismissed them as "We're doing it our way".
So yes, from then I pretty much stop debating.
Except you didn't address my idea. you went off about splitting units and the difference between 5 man, 8 man, 8.5 man squads, etc.

I beg to disagree.

Finances are that tight? Even tho you made more money from EE than expected? By your own statement in another thread. So developing smoke is some "treat" for us, even tho by any measure it should absolutely be in any game depicting battles such as those in EE and ALB? Some massively complex undertaking that makes other game functions unfeasable?

Abusive usage of caps too.
Constant implying that we are either completely dumb or plain dishonnest don't help either.
Abusive usage of caps? LOL. okay man. Whatever you say
I "caps" specific words, not entire sentences. That is for word emphasis. If that's abusive ... wow. just wow.
And if you're seeing implications of y'all being dumb and/or dishonest, I can't help that. As you say, "implications". I'm not saying that, tho I guess I can see where you're getting it from. How you read it is up to you, not me.
Anyhow, I'm outta this one.
CLEARLY no one is interested in hearing my reasoned out ideas, or even discussing them rationally. The fact that it's not actually my idea, but I get it from past games seems to fall on deaf ears. Other players apparently think it would add too much complexity, and is an unimportant consideration.
I mean, gee .. The military themselves must consider such transports pretty important, or they wouldn't have developed them in the first place.
This forum is the most contentious and opinionated forum I've ever been on. I give up -- to your amusement and relief I'm sure.
