How Accurate is Command Modern Operations?

Post by itisyeetimetoday »

I've been discussing, and since I know a defense contractor version exists, it can't be too inaccurate, but is this a game that just pretends to be accurate with it's top down bird's view GUI, or is it even remotely accurate?

Gee thanks ... might want to explain your comment. You must know something the rest of us don't. Please explain why posting a specific answer at https://www.warfaresims.com/ was not the correct approach to this topic. I think it helped to some degree.

It depends on what you mean by accurate! Geographically? It's just publicly available satellite data. It has the limitations associated with whatever data set they used.

The systems database is pretty good in many ways. They've made a lot of educated guesses and approximations here and there, which aren't necessarily terrible. There's some things that are just plain wrong, those are usually things where real world data isn't available in the public domain. There's other stuff that is uncannily correct. The EW model is hugely simplistic, and sort of squashes a variety of jamming techniques into one. It basically models barrage jamming, but the "generation" dependency suggests more than that, which introduces some wonkiness which is fine for entertainment purposes but probably ought not be taken too seriously for analytical purposes. Because of the weapon flight model, the A-Pole/F-Pole distances of weapons tend to be universally long. It's a detail, but it has tactical implications. If you're aware of it, in the pro-edition you can adjust it to reflect better data.

All models are wrong, some models are useful. Command is sufficiently correct to be useful for some purposes.

It's not bad. It's no worse than many of the things I've seen out there.

Sorry Kevin. Wasn't talking to you and should of been more verbose. Very sorry you seem to get so upset.[:)]

The original question.. what's the OP expect the answer to be. "Thanks, It is an inaccurate game that the devs try and market as accurate."

Hi Kevin. My mistake. I should of been clear. The goal was definitely not to upset you!

No worries!

I've been playing around with different burgers lately and have been getting lots of tips out of George Motz. Worth a watch if burgs are your thing.

Just in case itisyeetimetoday is worried their thread is getting derailed with cooking tips. It totally is, not pretend is.
