Hello,

Just purchased FPRS and am having a blast going through the smaller scenarios. Was wondering if there is a place to get copies of the maps from the game so I can use them as planning maps? Also, is there a listing somewhere of what the various units in the game are? I know what a BTR is but there seem to be various variations of BTRs/BMPs/BMDs, etc. Would be interesting to know what the units are.

Thanks in advance!!

Did you look in the map directory? If i remember right there like .jpg so you can print the game maps out.

Dan, there are a lot of downloadable files including map variants on the Matrix files site. See this thread: http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4339516&mpage=1&key=

Dan, as for understanding units, there is a Sub-Unit Inspector (SUI) that tell some info about each of the platforms in the game. One manual that we are adding to Southern Storm (Next game we are currently working on with an improved Cold Wars game engine) is a Battlefield Primer that would talk to more of the generic unit types and what they can do and also more info on the types and use of various weapons, sensors, and equipment found on the various platforms.
