RE: 3d graphics..........
I would think having 3d view in SBs would be a high priority as it is more important in a game of that scale than any other. You can se the terrain for such a small scale units, it's the best way to play those games. They should have been in all the titles to begin with, but why it wasn't done, don't know.
I would also love to see HPS go a step further with a new series and make one to the scale of individual soldiers, actually be able to enter buildings, room to room, up and down stairs. I'm sure there are probably plenty of people that coulod do it, but HPS is one I would trust to do a good job. I see people out there like VM that make corrections, changes or improvements to the games which makes it even better as a whole, but HPS is where it starts for the most part. That's part of the reason I own so many titles. I know I get shot down by Glenn or somebody else at times, but it's not like they are telling me to shut or or else.....even if I say the same thing several times over a period of time, they take the time to read and respond, another total plus.
Hats off to these guys!
