Steve, the proper way to milk the game engine cow is to next release water capable units in NW Europe, then Helos for the Vietnam module.
yeah, have something like this in the game.

I forgot about helos. Maybe one step at a time.

If someone was to take the VG Vietnam game put it back on the store shelf under some other name for sale with out obtaining any permission its not theft as long as you change the art work.
Sorry , but that’s called theft

Yep. You are allowed to re-interpret artwork as it is called. You can only ever protect original artwork and creations. Those are the laws and rules, then what you call it, doesn't matter. I work in the creative industry so I am an insider so to speak.

Not that it is needed. I think even a beginner could paint a Vietnam map. The guy who did the TOAW3 scenario or Boonierats maps . Now all we need is a game engine to support it. Better air model etc.

A modified TOAW3 engine could very well work as a base for a dedicated Vietnam game (resembling VG.s Vietnamn if that suits Sarge better). Now that Matrixgames owns the rights we are set as I see it.

This is the best path in my opinion. One could use the base engine and simply modify it until it suits this war perfectly. Add some more political options etc.

Well I live in reality , and reprinting art work with out permission doesn’t sound very creative to me

You fantasy geeks can back off my post and quit hijacking it!  . Once again I am glad to hear something may be in the works. I think that it has been a undervalued era of warfare and seeing that insurgent combat seems to be the method of the future it should be interesting to all.
