i have seen comments in baraduls current bta campaign that suggest once you get a few lrm tanks on the battlefield it becomes easy mode. might be a house rule you would implement that you cant use them or only have one. i stopped playing roguetech mod right before they implemented individual initiative. watched baradul play to see if i wanted to jump back into it but that mod just seems so bloated now i dont even want to mess with it.

DCS forum? DCS facebook group? It is a very active group...

I'll drop it there if my local friends group doesn't bite.

I don't see any comparison videos on Youtube, but Baradul does have a playthrough for each mod.

Haven't done enough yet to have any meaningful thoughts.  Just fired up the game and adjusted my mechs a bit but haven't done any missions yet.  I've been watching some recent videos by Baradul and a series of tutorials by MangaMaD from last year.

The game did lock up on me once but that was after I left it minimized on the main screen for a while.

Hmmmm..I wonder if Baradul has done a comparison video. He would be the expert.

I tend to like them because I can watch a six to ten minute video and learn the basics for pretty much any operation. Sure they leave out non-essential tasks and information and sometimes donít know the purpose behind every function, but for a primer on cold start, navigation, radios, all kinds of weapons employment and sensors, I usually look to the reapers. When I have more time or want more in depth treatment, I look elsewhere.

My thoughts exactly.  They're a great go to on setting up initial mapping.  I will typically go to Chucks Guides for the rest. 

I really enjoy watching Growling Sidewinder and Spudknocker as well.  GS's dogfight videos are always entertaining.

Now that my Virpil throttle has shipped...I need to sell my X-56.  Any ideas on where to shop it other than ebay?

I'll dump it on ebay if need be but I would like to find a better marketplace.  It's not bad...I've mentioned I've seen other online pilots be really good with it.  it's just not for me.

Looking forward to it muchly 😎 - I wonder of it will pull me away from the definitive editions of the updated earlier games...except for AoEIII, which never really clicked for me.

All three Battletech expansions are now on sale on Steam for 50% off through the 20th.  Resistance is futile...  8)

Any feedback on BTA 3062?

I dabbled a bit when it was free on Epic.  Unless you're really hankering for Total War in yet another costume, I'd say give it a pass.  I found it to be a significant step back from Thrones of Britannia, and even that one struggled to retain my interest.
