If pbem was implemented. I think it would need to be host based. i.e one host serves multiple players. Whether the host actually auto emailed out the turn to players or auto received I don't think would initially matter. Look at how stars! achieved it and you have a pretty perfect pbem concept which...

They will be incorporating a turn based aspect into the game, but whether that would be incorporated into the MP side I don't know. For me a turnbased MP ala PBEM or Web controlled is a really important feature - but I guess i'm in the minority. Then again I understand Dominions 2 recently broke all...

After a little more playing the missile interface is actually very nice. Effectively M, brings up the missiles. Select missile, shows available units to load to. highlight both and then deploy and hey presto all ready to use. I tried selecting multiple missiles and deploying in a unit but that didn'...

Yep it was funnily the Iraq invasion which made me think of this. I think dummys were used by both sides.

That said, no biggie, just trying to think of ways to get round effectively an invasion being spotted :smile:

Not exactly a unit, but units which would fool air reconasiance into thinking units were there - but actually effectively be dummys and of no strategic importance. A dummy would fool air survellaince but wouldn't fool ground surveillance when within a certain distance. Additionally dummy units would...

Not sure its confusing, but: I'm pretty sure I have the hang of these now. Simply put, go to the deploy missiles, if an available unit is there then you can either load it by the auto load (is this working?) or by selecting the missile and the unit its going to and click the deploy. I now have my un...

Appretiate the response. I agree re PBEM, that it does not appear to be an item that people look for when buying a game. (except maybe me :smile: ) However not sure whether when its in whether that encourages longevity in the game. But look forward to it is it appears. Amazing game regardless! Miles

I was under the impression that SR 2010 would have PBEM when it came to final relase. Good for me as I love PBEM. But having come across http://www.warfarehq.com/previews/supreme_ruler.shtml It looks like its been dropped for the time being :sad: Its obviously a difficult one to guage in terms of in...
