I was thinking of doing this myself. I was going to place a magnet under the carriers in the void space and then superglue a ferrous metal wire to the underside of the planes. Has anyone tried this. Is it not enough to make the planes stick?

RE: I want to buy a painted set or army
I painted a bunch of pieces for my son’s set of AAP40 and AAE40. I never finished a whole set. My work isn’t crazy good or anything but I think they are nice. Send me a pm if you would like to discuss it. Remember, I’ll have to charge something reasonable to make it worth the hours it takes to undertake this.

RE: The Wonder Computer of the 1980's!
Yea, I remember those days too. The best game out there was a text based Star Trek game called Space Wars because of possible copyright infringement. It took about one minute to make a single move or fire a torpeedo. If you warped into a sector with more than two Klingon ships, you’d better use phasers and knock them out in a single salvo or you may not get a second chance.
When I went off to collage I got my first taste of computer-to-computer stuff with a 1200 Baud modem connection on a teletype machine.
A few years later I bought my first PC with a 386SX processor (16MHz), 1 Meg of RAM and a 56k baud modem. I thought I was in heaven compared to the 2MHz machines I was running a year earlier. I remember that machine cost me over $1000, & I wouldn’t need to spend more than that now for a contemporary machine. Heck, I wonder how powerful my cell phone is?
OK Jerm, I’m coming to the party real late. My son received this game about January and I never paid any attentiion to it. My home PC went Ka-Blewy right before Thanksgiving and I needed some electronic entertainment outlet. I sat down to his game box thingy and now I’m hooked on the darn game. It really does get you immersed.
My first question is, what in the heck is up with Smithing? I got the first bonus in the Smith Tree but it doesn’t seem to have changed my Smithing. Weapons are still Smithed up only one level even though the bonus says “twice as much.”
This is the one area of the game I can’t seem to crack with my online research. What I read doesn’t explain why I’m having this problem.
Thanks for your help. A Really Awesome Game. I’m sure I’ll play a couple characters.
RE: US versus China for world position
In the middle of the second page, for example, you said the way around one of the problems with China was …
"I said it before and will say it again, instead of gutting US environmental laws (and labour laws), enforce them on Chinese companies and products. "
This is the sort of thing I shared when I observed that your solutions sound like the Bullying that folks complain about when they talk about the power and influence of the US. You asked (on page 5) that I provide an example, so there you are.
RE: US versus China for world position
You’re a hard one to figure out. You mention the “bullying of the US” against other nations while at the same time advocate the US, not the world or a coalition or something, enforcing environmental, labor and human rights rules upon China. I would like to see human rights recognized for everyone, but isn’t that just the sort of thing other nations would call bullying, when the US attempts to use its strength in one arena or another to force a policy on another nation?
I still believe the relatively benign policies of the US toward other nations given their relative strength is commendable. We’re not perfect but we do a pretty fair job.
Yes, I played the game on a PC system. It was awesome. Nothing else like it. They tried to make a ground warefare game but it was not the same, or even close.
Once I figured out how to use aircraft most effectively I would beat the computer like an old rug. I don’t know how I would have fared against humans.
I would get a figher screen up quick and beat back his first missile attack which was coming early. Then I would respond with my own air-to-ground strike designed to demolish the nearest airbase. I would locate surface groups with passive sensors or E2s and knock them out. My biggest nemesis was the ultra long range torpedeos the soviets used. I would usually try and knock out as many targets with air assets because they had unlimited re-arm capabilities. The ships had a max loadout.
I bought two expansions too. There was an Atlantic version and a Mediterranian version. By the time the second came out, Russia was falling apart and they were talking about Middle East and Africa scenarios.
