If you consider your surrender I would be happy.

However if this does not stop here my forces WILL keep on with the defense until every one of your forces diminish to the bone...

All of my cities are heavily fortified with CIWS, AA, Missile, even ICBM launching systems located throughout the continent! Your facing a tough turtle with alot of guns that can wipe out your air superiority no matter what...So consider yourself warned.

Yes however D&C 3 is not a real world nor does it have proper economics, so while it may seem silly to you it would work better than what we have now.
Sometimes you have to dumb things down for playability, how many shooters do you play where a single bullet from a guns puts people down instantly, non because it wouldn't be a fun game. "headshots not included"
This would make wars more workable as people wouldn't be able to replenish forces.
however there are other ways to make the gameplay more balanced.

No you haven't, sniper rifles are more balanced as they require skill to use, and naming 5 games doesn't prove your point, as there is always thirty fold generic shooters for every unique game.

BTW try shooting a elite with a sniper rifle on legendary halo campaign and tell me how that works out for you ;) In a legendary equivalent enemies are usually tougher, or are simply harder to kill.

There are other options available, like a simple system for economics in general.
Caps of course, the more tech you build the less you can build. So when you have 10,000 ground vehicles you cant build as many anymore, Ect.

of course we are never going for the C2 concept of caps, that was a disaster. You can still build units.

I have a sugestion, it is a bit complicated but hear me out. Institute a point system to decide who wins in the end. And have each unit you creat be minus a certain amount of point, each unit you destroy plus a certain ammount, and you could add various other factors. I know that this will most likely not be implemented, but i thought i might as well say it.

While a nice enough aircraft, it seems sort of "squished", as in the sense that it feels like it should be elongated. There's also a minor issue in that this aircraft is going to be to advanced to use at the start of the game, (assuming we start in the 50's), so a "older" fighter jet should also be constructed. Anyway, it's still pretty neat.

Wow! iTunes seriously pissed me off. I already hated it, but now it's even worse. So I upgraded it just so I could use it with my phone and add one song. However, now almost all of my songs are gone on my phone. That synchronize function is the worst idea ever. Why can't you simply add songs one by one?

The only good thing is the phone, but I would change it for an Android anyday.

This is what I am saying! Either we need to establish the amount of WMDs you can produce and how much other high-yield explosives we can produce as well. In Sykes Warzone he has established this. We may be near the end of this game but hopefully this will be resolved in the next one.

Post modern. Kinda like Warzone but it has a more Cold War feel in a post modern setting. It's more Cyberpunk and it's based on an Idea I had after playing a few Arcade games.

Also hi tech equipment will be somewhat rare so Cold War and World War tech will be more widely used and spaceships will also be somewhat rare. The galaxy will be the battlefield but no planet killers of any kind.

Laser technology (sci fi kind) will be somewhat allowed but will have to blend in with realistic so beams will be used unlike how Star Wars portrays it but beam swords are allowed.

If Sykes is still interested in doing Warzone then I'll stick with that but I'm willing to help expand it as well.

EDIT: I do have a group up but it might act as a testbed for rules, regulation, gameplay, etc for other wargaming groups in the future. I have a set of rules on Word and I can post them later. I just want to have a group that combines the old action films we've seen as kids heh heh and also it would be even sweeter if we all had our signature characters be part of it.

So far I plan on keeping a balance of World War/Cold War/Modern War elements in the new game although the game itself is not official but if anyone is interested then speak out at will.

So the game will have a catagory of unit production and how much land you posses. The more land you gain the more units you can make. World War and early Cold War units will serve as "surplus" both cheap and cost efficient and can be made in plentiful rates(Tiger tanks, Sherman, T-34, B-17 etc) and as for mid to post Cold War (M1 Abrams, Leopard, T-54/55/62/72 etc) will serve as somewhat cheap and efficient but will have less productivity. Modern day to post modern will be expensive to produce and will have limited productivity but the more planets or land you posses the more you can make.

The moral of the game itself is how many units you can spare during war and how many you can survive with.

Quick question, what category would my new variant of the H-4, the ground attack one. I am not sure what it should go, since there is no clasification for ground attack planes, and i am not sure if it should go under dropship, since it carries troops.
Finally, since it is a variant of a design i already have (and it is deffinetly different from the fighter) does it get the new unit bonus?

I would assume it would be considered a fighter, even though that's not a perfect fit by any definition. Anyway, yeah, variants get bonus production.

The T-125 has undergone several field testing and so far no problems have been detected. However, she may need some minor upgrades to be fit for field duty in the next few weeks.

Extensive upgrades of the X-55 are being made and the Oceanic Empire is searching for new products for their bomber program. The B-88 may not see any future production.

The Oceanic B-52 bomber is still undergoing prototyping phases as well.

I hope to god so. Aww...it would be a great spiritual successor of this game but with some new experiences. I will join the battles in D&C III but Warzone should be my hotspot. I love WWII stuff so if I ever do feel that nostalgic need for "retro futurism" D&C III will be the place to go. I love those old "peculator" styled aviation of the 1950s and I do have at least one moc based on a...I just created it based on the old jet engines.

But I should be more active in Warzone and if you need any help I would gladly volunteer.

Man I really do want to star an awesome Minecraft server. I'm building a map where you can conquer these spheres I made. Each are dedicated resources and you start with three "planets" (I just call them resource centers) and you can capture many different sky islands and resource spheres.

For admins (Overseers) they can dwell in the epic center which will be a large bedrock structure kinda like a "holy place" located in the center of the map. I have not fully build the map but maybe one day when I can get high-speed internet I will. For now I just have a sample version.

Heh.

I'm trying to build a reconnaissance/light armor vehicle pack. So far I have an infantry mobility vehicle and two mobile sentry "wagons" and a couple IFVs in WIP.

Plus I'm going to build an APC possibly based on an M113 but I'm willing to make a personalized version.

I'm trying to keep some things basic for now. I could do some complicated fancy vehicles but LDD can be a pain to do so.

So I have my IFV ready but I do not like it's size. It's good but I will have to classify it as a medium and it's gun is calibrated at 95mm.

I am trying to aim for a smaller and lighter one for more practical reasons (and for the sake of improving infantry armor, concealment, compactness, and mobility.

EDIT so far I do like it's layout but I was aiming for a smaller scale.

If this game is going to survive for another year then I propose that the rules on production should change. There is no official airship production limit and mostly all ground units should have more productivity. APCs/IFVs should also be separated. Reason is because the game should not be too time consuming and LOONG and during wartime cooldown should be suspended or shorten if anyone agrees.

When D&CII Extended officially begins, we can do something like that. I do agree ground units need a bit of a boost build-wise. The infantry rule needs to be clarified and explained much better than now.
And I honestly feel like naval is a bit too lenient. I am not even maxed out and within stats and I am still dominating the seas. Which almost feels too easy to do.

Naval can see improvement as well but you're naval superiority is based on your life's worth of production. I've lost many naval units but I'm going to start over again with BETTER units. Heck I might follow your naval style and I'm also building a trimaran styled supercarrier as the Hellsing series.

Air units can see better build ups as well. As I've stated, I am going to use more airships as well and I do have two new airships that are set to be in showcasing once I'm done with most of my land units.

Exactly, The fighter jet production needs to account for generation, tanks need to be much quicker to produce, and trucks, transports, etc should be over 100 a week. The infantry system needs to made clearer as well.

Not true. The B-52 was meant as a strategic nuclear bomber. Though it was later converted to a heavy bomber. 4 was enough, however, since we don't have nukes, AA tech seems markedly overpowered considering the powerhouse role air usually plays, and there are majorly uber lasers, yeah, 4 just won't cut it.

I wouldn't say that the AA is overpowered, but to say that aircraft are much more vulnerable to it is correct. This is something that is widely predicted to occur in real life once practical laser AA is made. I would argue that bomber production is too low based solely on the fact that 4 bombers a week is considerably less expensive than how many fighters can be constructed per week.

That's because the B-52 was originally made to deliver nuclear weapons just in case the world saw World War III between US, China, and Russia. But then of course Vietnam and the Gulf War and Iraq came along and the bombers had used smaller and conventional payloads than they had originally intended. 4 would be enough ONLY if a nuclear exchange was to occur.

If D&CIII takes the intel system, which I never did get much feedback on, then there would be at least one guy guaranteed to be impartial and capable of CMing world war. That said, war may go in 'slow motion' as it may take more than a week for one guy due, as you said, the sheer volume of plans to deal with.

Cool, when I was on vacation in South Carolina two years ago, a Huey and two AH-1 Cobras flew over the beach very low and slow. One of the Cobra pilots waved.
Also, this summer, three CH-47s flew over my house, those things are loud.

Only one B17 in Europe. I saw it last year at an airshow. Surprisingly quiet beast. On the other hand, the Eurofighter typhoons I have seen at low level (these things would cut your F18s to pieces, but the Raptor is still beyond them) are insanely loud. They aren't graceful in flight, they are just incredibly aggressive, the pilots can just throw them around the sky, and they roar. Nothing sound wise can tough the Vulcan though, with possible exception of the XB70 Valkyrie. When I saw the Vulcan, it made an enormous sea pier shake in its foundations, and there is a video of it setting off hundreds of car alarms in one pass at an airshow a few years ago.

Airshows are great. A couple years ago, a F22 showed up and showed off. I was quieter than I expected and very graceful. The loudest one every was a group of a P51, F86, F15, F16, F18, and F22 that low memorial flight over the crowd. The most awesome things was the B2. It was high enough that we could we could not hear it, all you saw was a big black boomerang flying over.

I have always just said that one stud equals one foot long. You see, one minifig is 5 studs tall, i just assume all minifigs are 5 feet tall to make things simpler. But if you want to be super precises, each stud should be about 1 foot 2 inches.

To be honest though (and not in an offensive way) I don't think Bish had any combat experience during the face off. I like Bish as a creator, but he may need to exercise further studies of tactics and warfare and how they are used.

I was using more recon and less troopers during the first round, but then all of a sudden I lost almost all of my units including UAV's, tanks (Which I was trying to be scarce with) and so fourth.

Sylvan's reports where more favorable during my defense of the city where Kenyon would have met an ultimate end...

I would have lost anyways, but I would make sure that Kenyon would either.

I agree, your creation will have a ton of firepower and armor, but it's fairly useless without support as they will be operating without intel of where to fire (thus making the huge range moot), and should have escorts for protection.

Agreed. Yes an open field and expand it to a simple ground based skirmish would be favorable.

Before I can proceed with the proposed battle, I must give the Sherry an upgrade to make it more like a miniature T-72. The Chariot and Spartan IFVs will also come to play and a reserve of my ground forces and recon via Spartans will also be in.

The goal could be Capture the Flag, King of the Field, or whatever.

The only way to give a tiger tank light armor is literally to lessen it's armor, which is both difficult and unwanted. If anything, it needs a better engine instead of the same one used by the panther. Anyway, the Tiger simply isn't going to have speed or manueverablity even with improvements, and MBTs didn't exist until the 1960's.

The only way to give a tiger tank light armor is literally to lessen it's armor, which is both difficult and unwanted. If anything, it needs a better engine instead of the same one used by the panther. Anyway, the Tiger simply isn't going to have speed or manueverablity even with improvements, and MBTs didn't exist until the 1960's.
technically, the panther has the Tiger's engine. The Tiger came first.

What I have planned so far:

Use reserves of old Tiger I and II (non production),

Use Tiger III based on the same E-75 Concept.

Build a tank nearly based on the E-100 chassis and use a custom turret.

Light Armor + speed = balanced combat platform.

Heavy battle tanks are useless against innovative platforms like the T-34 and the Sherman.

This may be a Cold War based game, but there will be no NATO, Possibly no nuclear weapons (nor would there be any Atomic Age elements) or even USSR/US tensions. Not even the Cuban Missile Crisis and their little conquest to immigrate to the US.

Hail the New German Empire!

There wont be nuclear weapons, however poisonous gasses, and chemical agents will be allowed, providing they are area of effect, and are limited in range.

There will also be a world pact thread in which players can ban, and repeal certain technologies, limit production rate, or enact propositions.
The list of technologies will be limited to a few, and wont include vehicles, or creations. Also production scales cannot be limited below 50%.

Any warring nations cannot participate.

Ideas?

I wouldn't say that. I am now at tier 7 in WOT, the T29 US heavy tank. I don't think that war thunder ground combat will de throne WOT, because they don't fill the same slot in the food chain. WOT is very realistic, brutally hard, and requires immense skill to play well (hence why there are so many noobs) war thunder requires all these things, but is most popular for its arcade mode, allowing less experienced players to still have fun. Arcade mode ground combat looks like a kid's cartoon compared to WOT. Admittedly, the graphics and audio are much better, but WOT graphics are still good, and you can replace the audio with mods. (I use the Historic realism gunsounds mod, which provides lifelike gunshots, reload sounds, bounce sounds, near miss sounds, explosions and even adds in the Doppler effect, so you can gauge distance from the sounds.

Just for fun, I am working on a ship that was drawn on paper during High school, a Judgement-Class Battlecruiser. Right now, I have the middle hull somewhat done as well as a few guns and missile launchers places. So the number of guns on it now are:

3 x 20in Punishers Railguns
2 x 18in GN Beam Cannon
2 x Positron cannons
2 x 32-cell LVS tubes
1 x Dual 18in GN Beam Cannon
1 x Dual 65mm Coilgun
4 x 10mm CIWS
6 x 12in Beam Cannons
1 x Dual Quad missile Launcher
2 x 5in Coilguns
1 x 7in Coilgun
10 x Large VLS tubs

The total number of bricks is 2865, that number will increase and the color seam will be of this color design : http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120820055256/gundam/images/c/ce/Diva_Darwin_Variant.png
or
http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120902160033/gundam/images/0/03/Diva-class_%28Amadeus%29.png
or even this one
http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110723000054/gundam/images/1/11/Baikal_Bow.png

Which one would be nice for this ship and no this ship has technology that is very advance like beam cannons, GN Field and powerful beam cannons that affect the environment if fired. Also this ship has the capabilities to open up a slip-space opening. This is just for fun, maybe if in Warzone, this ship can be allowed in.

That is more game balencing, but you have to consider that even if your mouse is dead over the enemy vehicle, in real life the crew are panicking and trying to bring the gun round to where they want it. The inaccuracy isn't the gun itself, if the aim is perfect you can get accuracy beyond a mile in real life, but more the way it is aimed, the precision of turret movement and the cramped confines the crew have to work in with poor visibility. As a gamer, it might not seem too realistic, but check out some real stories and it makes more sense. Also, if a gun does 700 damage and is on a tier 6 (kv2) how do you balance it other than by lowering the accuracy?

KV-2 had a terrible rate of fire because of the two piece ammunition, but in one battle it held back several german tanks alone. So, it should be as powerful as it was.

I have to explain my lack of activity. I have exams next week and am really busy. Once the Xmas holidays start, I will get active again. I need to write up a revised set of rules for the second age of Divide and Conquer II. These will hopefully make the group more fun and eliminate any loopholes in the old set. They will of course be open to changing and criticism. I will not enforce anything that people strongly disagree with. The most objectionable thing I am proposing is a reset of stats back to a smaller level, say 5 weeks production of everything. This is because I want to encourage new members, and we all have vast armies. Any people who will not be continuing will be given the choice to erease their nation, or to offer its reset forces up to any new members to give them a boost.
As these two things will probably spark some debate, tell me what you think so I can get to grips with what you want.
Also, to prove I am not dead, today I will release a sneak peak at the Iron Predator. I have set its completion date for the 01:01:2014, to coincide with the release of D&C III, and the renewal of D&C II.
P.s I am opening a thread to debate the changes for the second age of the group, please write in there.
