STRONGPOINT SALAS H2H VERSION RELEASED AT THE PROVING GROUNDS

17 August 1944. South of Western Dvina river.  The 311th Soviet Rifle Division has halted before well prepared enemy defenses. All attempts to break through were unsuccessful before higher headquarters issued orders to halt further attacks. In the Ozolini – Rabeli region, enemy forces have prepared forward defensive positions in the small hamlet of Salas. Salas is situated at the 311th Division’s center of frontline. That hamlet provides the enemy strong flanking positions which cover all friendly approaches to the […]

VIN GEOMETRIC ICONS FOR CMFB & CMBS

  If you are familiar with Vins other Icon mods this one works the same in using different colors for spotted and FOW icons, along with different colors for fortifications icons making set up much more visually organized. Each unit class has a unique geometric shape making it much easier to differentiate unit types while making icons smaller.  I really like the way they look in game.  Be sure to try them out and leave feedback!

PROVING GROUNDS AND SCENARIO DEPOT UPDATED

With summer upon us and the site spring clean having overlooked The Scenario Depot and The Proving Grounds I’ve been able to invest about 5 hours into the 2 aforementioned sites giving them a damn good polish.  To say they have been neglected is a tad harsh but they haven’t been dusted down too often.  However with the Shock Force 2 game over the horizon and approaching it became imperative that these places were ready for action as new releases […]

VEGA FORCE SCENARIO FOR BLACK SEA

This scenario is called Vega Force and it has been designed by Heirloom_Tomato in response to requests for Black Sea to have more small scenarios.  Something which I echo myself.  I always feel with smaller scenarios I know exactly what I expect everyone to do and to be able to control them intricately, something which you lose when getting involved in bigger battles.  Go and give it a download, link is below and please do provide feedback as the designers […]
