i forgot to do my typical price guessing:)

this one is tough for me since multiple ways it could go...on one hand maybe cheaper to bring in more people, on the other hand maybe more expensive to catch up on all the stuff they added along the way.

with all that said, i am going to guess they stay with current price of $79.99

of course if you want to see the tacview stuff, that is another $69.99 unless you wait until a future sale

Steam has unlocked, $79.99.

DLCs are $19.99 if you haven't got them yet and/or registered them with Steam from a Matrix buy. (I bought CMANO from Matrix during the Winter sale last year, since that's when my yearly loyalty coupon also kicks in, but at the time there was no Steam crossover code; still might not be.)

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

Hi all,

I've just had a conversation with Paulo over at Slitherine. A couple of interesting things came up:

1. Does the new game the new game now replace my old copy of CMANO? If so I should now uninstall it from Steam.
    It looked like it did, but I asked him to please confirm as I wanted to be sure.
 
    He replied "no, it's a different game. you can keep both of them on your HD :)"; and

2. He gave me some interesting information, which is mostly relevant to people who haven't yet got Command: Modern Operations

"Today, Slitherine and Matrix Games are going to release Command: Modern Operations, the premier military simulator for any possible engagement in a modern scenario, from counter-terrorism operations to nuclear tactical warfare. C: MO (https://www.matrixgames.com/game/command-modern-operations) is an evolution of C: MANO (released in 2013), but its also a revolution on its own as it takes every single element and system of the original simulation to the next level. Everything from engine, database, maps, editing, accessibility, progression has been revamped and reshaped.

Command: Modern Operations is simulation developed by Warfare Sims that evolved to become the equivalent of perfection in modern warfare operational wargaming. So much so that in more recent years, what was purely a commercial game grew up to be a reference in professional wargaming, with the Professional edition being used by multiple military defence organizations across the world, including Pentagon, German Luftwaffe and British DSTL (Defence Science and Technology Laboratory)."

I'm including the PR about the new Command: Modern Operations to this email, while you can find some screenshots with captions (and the same PR) here:

Here you can also find our new trailer "What is Command: MO explained in two minutes":



I hope that is helpful to you all.

Best regards,
Boggit

My price with 50% off is 34 .

I have all the DLC and I have Tacview advanced.

Give me a reason not to get the new edition  :).


They released a bundle including Tacview (https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/12584/Command_Modern_Operations__Tacview_Advanced/) with an added discount.

I saw that bundle and that is a great deal. I'm thinking of just buying that bundle on Steam rather than buying both from the individual stores. Decisions.

One thing I noticed is that the Tacview Steam edition doesn't install automatically in DCS as a module.   Maybe this is a bug but if you want to use Tacview exporter in DCS you might be better off (for now) using the non-steam version.
I tried this with the free version on Steam that somehow (it detected my licence ?) installed as the advanced edition.

How can I know if Tacview exporter is properly installed?

Tacview exporter is a module of DCS World. You should see its icon at the bottom of DCS World main menu screen. A dedicated control panel is also available under the SPECIAL tab in DCS World OPTIONS page.

I've seen murmurs that Tacview doesn't have fog of war implemented yet, so you can see undetected enemies in the 3D view.

That's a bigger issue for me than the price.

Just a heads up....only one coupon code can be used per order at Matrix.  So if you own the existing game, you have to use either the 50% off discount or your coupon (of course if only higher than 50%).  If you don't previously own the game, then absolutely having the coupon code is great to cut the costs.
