Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations ("The Harpoon that Never Was")

CMANO2 developers interview:

It does have the ability to pause or change the flow of time, which makes it more manageable to deal with, but someone that has spent more time with it than some tutorials can probably say better than me how bad the info load is.

Blog entry on the new engine rewrite and new UI

Even more on the improved UI. Tons of very, very nice changes.

Very nice changes indeed. Tacview alone is worth the price of admission. Does Tacview support 3D oceans?

@Dimitris Will there be a performance hit if my map settings is set to show ALL missions? In the current version, there’s a hefty performance hit if I have all mission areas displayed as shown here.


8700K with an RTX 2080 and Command runs sluggishly with all mission zones enabled.

No, the new engine can easily show multiple mission areas.

The mission name is also now displayed at the centroid of each mission area, making it easier to see at-a-glance which mission is where.

Command: Modern Operations – The new simulation & editor features:

I just can’t go back to OG Command after watching the videos of CM2 so far. The across the board increase in performance, smooth map control, and Tacview have rendered Command obsolete.

November 14 launch announced. No word on pricing.

holy fuck thats close! I may not get it at launch then :(

A surprise to be sure but a welcome one. I figured it had to be at least a year out since they were mum about a release date.

I’m intrigued but hesitant at the expected $100+ CAD price tag – and that’s before the tacview integration. I’ve been rather arbitrarily limiting myself to $200/yr on gaming, and as much as I enjoyed CMANO, I’m thinking this will probably be a pass.

Wow, that is awesome!! Can’t wait!

CMANO goes on sale like 2 or 3 times a year for like half off. Dunno about Tacview though.

They’ve already said there’s a discounted price if you already own CMANO.

I am much more interested in this than my wallet advises that I ought to be.

Yeah, although it did take a while to get to that point.

The manual

Am I allowed to say that I am EXTREMELY EXCITED??? Only 7 days to go!

My excitement is down to 10 from 11. I saw over on the official forum that Tacview replay is supported only for the professional version while the consumer flavor only supports live playback. It’s not a huge deal breaker but my hope was to enjoy a Tacview replay with a tub of popcorn but now I’ll have to be content with live playback. It’s sort of like getting to Disneyland and finding your favorite ride will be down for maintenance during your stay.

Maybe we can form our own company to gain access to the PE version of CMO. How about 5h1t bON3rZ: A wholly owned subsidiary of Chogglepants Inc.
