    Have you guys seen this? Room Defender I'm considering buying one to keep the scrub turkey from digging up my garden. Heh... Check out the rest of the site too. They've got some good stuff. I want an Airzooka...

    Some Good News.

    I'll be absolutely sure to post up when there's a Free Trial or "Welcome back, Soldier" (as opposed to Hello Thailor) scheme happening. You can always download the mofo and give it a gogo. Er.. you know what I mean. Offline only... but it'll give you a good feel for what's changed.

    Yo Schatty - check it out. Seems I'm some kind of prophet. Time for me to start lobbying for Commonwealth troops in North Africa I think.

    Spock! Fetch me my... crotchless space suite. I'm going to... probe the alien. Dammit Jim! You can't just run around mating with every alien you see! You're a man, not a turkey baster!

    Have you gone the chromus domus, Schatten? I'm thinking of getting a shearing after the hitching.

    Awww, see that there's a cute dawg. Dobies are cool. Labs are cooler. That dawg's inherited a bunch of Coolness. As for IWantOneOfThose.com (IWOOT) - oh heck yeah. It's TEH PWN as they say in the classics. Check out the RC aircraft with the sonic gun, paratrooper and bomber attachments. Oh my GAWD.

    Yeah, something about the peaceful workers and peasants of Schattytopia not dealing with ratbastard terrorists... All I know is I like puppydogses. Preciouss.

    Scatty's Muddle Screenshot Scrapbook

    Yeah, I second Rommel's assessment. These are groovy beyond words. You've progressed a lot since that "Frying Spitfires with the Power of my Mind" pic way back when!

    I surely am! It seems that my return sparked Gunny to track down Schatty, too! Thanks for your help over the years in trying to get back in contact with the bugger, Rommel. We had a couple of attempts, as I remember.

    Yeah, I think you vamoosed before Sappers were introduced to the game, too (that was way back in like 1.2 - we're now at 1.17). They're kind of a Fantastical unit with satchel charges, and I think they're going to be phased out. There are also Antitank Rifles which are pretty dang nifty, and also riflegrenadiers. It's pretty unhealthy to lonewolf around as a tank... you often don't live very long without an infantry screen. Then there's antitank guns proper. Not to mention the chance of getting obliterated by the enemy's CAS assets.

    ...or I suppose keep it simple and do a paintball hopper. It's kind of scary that this sort of tech is available in a toy now, and for only 20 quid. Shame these guys don't deliver to Oz, lemme tell ya. This would be just the thing I need to help stage my coup. Uh... I fear I have said too much.

    Some Good News.

    Yeah, it was pretty rough there at the start. Some say it still is. There's a metric buttload of new toys ingame, and the Rats have just busted the old 64 player limit barrier. You can now see 128 player avatars simultaneously. Unfortunately, yeah - it's still the Battle of France. Or rather, it starts off as the Battle of France in May 1940 but it soon diverges as each side researches new vehicles. More accurately, the play still occurs in Holland/Belgium/France/Luxembourg/Western Germany. I think they're going to try to get North Africa happening for next year. There still isn't a hydrodynamic model, and at the moment Naval play consists of Destroyers and Patrol Boats only. Oh yeah, and transports. The bulk of Naval action occurs in the Zeelands and the Channel. I think before the North African/Med theatre they're going to need to enrich Naval play a bit more, and get visible convoys happening. I mentioned research before - there are bombable factories that produce research points, and basically you can do bombing missions to go smack them down and delay the other side getting new gear. The High Commands of each side can choose what new gear they want to research, too. When a map is won by a side, the whole thing resets and you're back to May 1940, ready to thump each other again.

    Dear God, it's a veritable Who's Who now! Now I've got a captive audience, maybe it's time to start extolling the virtues of WWII Online? Cue der Benny Hill music... danke. MW runs comically off stage left.

    Gunny - thanks for bringing Schatten back to the fold!

    w00t! Schatty, I've been trying for a bloody long time to get in contact with ya mate. Good to see you're alive and kicking! Drop me a line - madwallaby@hotmail.com. Lots of stuff has happened in the 3 years since you deigned to talk to me last (ya bugger)! Most importantly, I'm getting married next May. Anyway, email meh! -Wal

    What can I say, I live in a complicated alternate reality. I could have sworn that one of you guys changed your name and that two of the three were alternates. See, this is just the fog of time doing things, that's all. Sorry for implying that you were a sock puppet, TQM.

    Gunny - sweet, thanks! Good to know he's neglectful of all his buddies, and not just me! Sulla - hey hey! If memory serves (jogged by your avatar) you were in that crazy Romanian outfit with old What's His Face, right?

    A message from SimHq

    Hi guys! Red has graciously pointed me in the right direction and, per your collective request, I'll keep this Top Sekret Batcave Forum firmly under my hat. Gunny - I think we've been in contact before. Herr Rommel passed on your "enigma addrezz" to me a couple of years ago and we spoke briefly. Since I use hotmail for this sort of stuff I think I inadvertantly lost your email addy, etc etc... Anyway, if you do get in contact with old Schatty, I'd be really interested in doing the same. He dropped off my radar about three years ago and I've got a *lot* to catch up with him about. *S* to all the familiar faces. I see Whizkid, Donster, Sulla and Stan for starters. You guys might not remember me, but I used to frequent the CSIM EAW forums in ages past, although not quite to the extent that you lads did. From EAW I moved to WWII Online (again, Schatten was the guy who introduced me to it in 1999... he's responsible for a lot of wasted time that man) where I've played pretty solidly for the last three and a bit years.
