The answer to this is simple (like the answers to many of the problems you people bicker about). Simply make another circle showing 40% of the max fuel range (the extra 10% is used as a reserve, so the plane has time to turn around). Also, make an option to not show this new circle in case some peop...

But why would you want to do that? The ingame music fits the game perfectly. It's so creepy.

I extracted the sound files and converted them to .wavs so now I can listen to them in WMP ;)

Cool mod, but does this work with the theme of the game? You are supposed to be in a bunker controlling the war via a computer screen. Why would any military command software waste time making detailed icons? They would deliberately make the icons as simple as possible (think triangles, circles, squ...

shaking and scrambling would also be nice. or sth sort of like when you hold a magnet to your monitor (don't do it!) Lol, just go to the monitor setup thing (press the buttons on the monitor) and go to "degauss" which can sometimes appear as an icon like a U (or a horseshoe magnet) with a...

Perhaps a tragectory based on the latitiude of the strike as well as the latitude of the target? The south latitudes would make a southern arc, and the northern latitudes, a northern arc. At the equator, there would be no arc, perhaps causing the problem of a shorter path for nukes. The arc thing i...

My Strategy

My strategy is to.... you think I'm going to tell you my strategy? Then you would know what it is! You want to know what it is, you join my server (constantly named "Cheney's Server", due to my ingame name "Dickhead Cheney") and get your ass handed to you by it. Hell, thats the w...

Damn you and your beta version, NeoThermic! Do you have any tornado screenies? Unfortunately, it has been stated in another thread that UFOs were disabled in the retail release, although I have yet to hear about tornadoes. As for the discovery that in IV's games, .dat=.rar, congrats. Although it se...

doesn't a little blinking nuclear symbol in the lower right do the exact opposite of "boss mode"? I'd want it to be as hush-hush as possible. if you envoke that mode, it's specificly because you do NOT want the guy behind you knowing what's going on. If they saw a "Defcon 1" fla...

What about a large game based entirely on a European theatre of war? Or one based on conflict over the Arctic Circle between the United States and the Soviet Union? I would like to make a new map showing a polar projection of the northern hemisphere to be used for simulations of war between the US ...
