The UI isn't bad at all, certain aspects of it are obtuse but much of it is straightforward. A lot of the battle info layers can be toggled, so turning them all on helps understand things. The tutorial is very simple, as you're presented with an 'establish base of fire, then advance' scenario, on a narrow map with plenty of good cover, but it doesn't really give you any direction beyond the briefing. There's no step-by-step introduction to the facets of the game's movement/cover/firepower/combat/vehicle/etc systems.
The beatings will continue until morale improves.

, but I would like to know what I am supposed to be doing and how to accomplish it without necessarily having to read a 120 page manual (although I do love extremely detailed manuals).
Huge tutorial : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbE8795rt2s
Oh god, videos are even worse! Possibly I am too particular. Thank you for this, though.

Same here.

No, it really is not.

Yes, it really is.

Anyone else feel like telling me my opinion is wrong? The game is great, BTW. Not that that seems to matter much now I've slaughtered a sacred cow.

The modders in the Combat Mission player community are a very proactive and energetic bunch.
Here are some mods that were just uploaded to make the allied vehicles look even better in the winter conditions.

Shuck, just go look for yourself at the battlefront.com forum for this game's mods.

That's an understatement, if anything. I stopped counting the scenarios that were produced for CMBB once it passed a thousand. I don't think it has got any less productive over the years.

Imo, CMFB is just a re-skinned version of the tripe these clowns have been dishing up for a decade. It's not a wargame that replicates WW2 infantry tactics, it's a fancy arcade game for kids that want to blow stuff up.
Infantry are correctly inaccurate when firing at enemy troops in the heat of battle, but suddenly turn into world-class snipers when an AFV unbuttons. Leader-seeking shrapnel is also a personal favourite.
Next.
