Well by now most of us have seen the alpha versions of both the Desert Combat mod and the Conflict in Somalia mod...And so far, in my opinion, Desert Combat is "winning"...the jets and A-10 are a blast to fly..the M1A1's and Shilka's are cool as hell...and even the chopper is relatively simple to fly after a little practice and patience. The sounds are nice and the uniforms are cool. With CiS, the assault kit weapon is just a gray outline or model or something...which, of course should be fixed up and detailed before the final release....the large chopper is OK, wasnt able to use the gun on the side though...and it's also difficult to fly..as are the little choppers on the airfield...it's a promising mod however, perhaps a modified version of El Alamein with a large area of buildings set in a huge grid (like in Black Hawk Down) spanning most of the center of the map would make the CiS mod more fun, because right now, just driving trucks or hummers around a wide-open space is kinda boring. So in conclusion, while the CiS mod is promising, the Desert Combat mod, in my opinion, is the better of the two. Have fun :cya:

DC is by far the better, as in other posts i have said about the same as u have just mentioned, CIS looks terrible with it's unfinished rushed graphics, the veichles are very bad and yep that assault weapon looks like they aint got a skin for it yet. Also in CIS try reloading the blooper after u emptied it and when u die it turns back in to a bazooka ;) as for flying the Apache in DC :) i still can't it just swings and is very unresponsive...but Tanks and skins do look fun, Wartog is cool to.

I also think DC is better. But there are a few things i like in CiS. I like the anti-tank kit, even though it is full of bugs like when you fire a round and stop, the sound keeps going. I like the planes in the water behind the airfield on Wake Island too.:cya:

here are my 2 cents on this 2 games

CiS:what i can say about this game is that is very unfinished and rushed to the public at its very alpha version .. but the helicopter controls are very realistic.. if you dont belive me fly a choper in flight sim and see ... you actually have to raise the nose to air brake wich is remarkable that they would go that far to make the choper feel "real" other than that its still to see

DC:very advanced alpha version !! i love it and play it now and then , nothing like soar across the sky at mac 5 , and the sounds are very cool , i think they have their stuff going preatty good but my suggestions for this last game are :

1:functional radar that everyone in the defending base sees so if a plane/ choper is approaching you would see it on the map by the occilating radar (kind of like the destroyer one) but the radar would only "see" aircraft and its beam would be wider.

2:scout primary weapon : an M4 and would be used like a special operation unit in real life , binoculars would have night vision (for posible night maps) and the requesting artillary function of the binaculars would be changed for calling for airstrike , jets with laser guided missiles would hit target .

3:heat seeking missiles to hit moving jets/chopers , its just too hard to hit anything flying that fast without "smart" weapons , left click would give you air to air heat seaking missile , right click would give you air to ground missile guided by a scout "call for artillary"

4: a troop transport plane wich main function is to transport up to 10 troops to drop on targets ..would handle as a b17

5:stealth plane for UN side , this plane would be "unvisible" to the radar mentioned before , and would be very hard for heat seeking missiles to lock on it .. would use air to ground missiles only so its usefulness would depend mainly on scouts calling fro targets ,

6:tactical nukes: this bombs would probably be carried by stealths and could only be deployed with the help of a scout ,, other scouts would have "laser" detectors that would detect when a laser is taging and object therefore trying to stop the strike before the plane gets there .

7:carpet bombers .

8:scouts would be navy seals and could swim very long distances withut drawning , they would carry c4 to sing ships they reach .

9:amphibious tanks capable of going on / of water , this tanks would have softer armor .

10 : scuds for iraq that are not mobile but when a scout taggs the target the scud would launch after a few minutes , then again frocing defending scouts the find the tagger before its too late , maybe the scud would carry an atomic bomb or some kind of poison gas .

any more suggestiosn ?
