I totally see your point and depending on the game I tend to sometimes feel the same way regarding real world realism.
But with SupCom though, it is a hugely stylised game and relies on the improbable all the way to the crazy impossible. It's somewhat its charm. I mean has anyone ever mentioned that the scale of the games huge mechs would collapse under their own weight or that using battleships that fire unguided artillery is obsolete? ;-D

Well under this logic, he can't move his arms, legs, eyes, face, think, talk... anything.
I'm sure its known as something.... ahhh yes, DEAD!
Therefore the logic argument deconstructs at the point at which the "imagined" character in the "imagined" universe is controlled by "imagined" fictional supernatural constructs of nature as definded by the creator.
That is to say, by accepting the conclusion that it is a fictional concept and that the characters ability to act in a fashion resembling the living is entirely ficticious, one can conclude that the suggested logic is no longer applicable within the said context.

p.s. There is no such thing as simple logic.

Baryonyx May 21 2012, 8:52am replied:

It shouldn't need any additional advantage, other than the fact it can probably engage from a greater range than most. So if its not in the line of sight of a unit or firing its weapon it will most likely be far back enough to stay hidden. I guess it will best be deployed in combined arms tactics (as with most units) so forward units can reveal targets for the Laser Distroyer to "snipe". Basicly the role of a typical tank hunter.

I love good quality sounds. It's sometimes lacking in games, often treated as a secondary feature. I'm glad its being taken seriously.
Great sound is a good way to raise the immersion level, I somewhat prefer it to shiny graphics.

It's all very well saying this looks amazing. Which I can recognise and understand from an artistic and technological viewpoint. But with regards to 'realism' of the visuals this is far from accurate compared to 'real life' (despite peoples zealous fanatical reverence).

My point is about the game creators attempt to render an environment as close to reality as possible, an aim since the dawn of computer gaming. Yet the tendancy is to make 'stylistic' choices to hide differences or embellish visuals using certain graphical techniques.
In Battlefield 3 it seems they have gone overboard with high contrast and unnatural lighting (or atleast missed out important considerations).

There is a key difference between "photo realism" and "optical realism" its a massive mistake to follow "photo realism" in a computer game. Great for still images and dramatic movies but totally totally unrealistic for actual gameplay and at worst a hindrance (in a game like this).

No one seems to makes the distinction between the two and I note a great number of people are swept away by the strong contrasts in the lighting and I put forward that its due to the natural excitment to the dramatic effect it produces, just as a powerful highly contrasted black and white photo can be a strong and intense image. It should not be confused with the 'realism' of the average human eye, which adjusts to light conditions unlike battlefield 3 visuals.

Basicly in short, the lighting is a mess.

p.s. I have played the game.
It's not the only game to play this cheap gimmick trick , its dramatic, it looks like a movie, it probably sells.

Just tested your mission.
I'll provide feedback and opinion.
Firstly if this is your first attempt at a men of war map and mission, I can say you got some basic things right and others quite a bit wrong.
Firstly the good points:
It didn't crash during my play through.
It included environment and lighting.
It included objectives (although incomplete/lacking detail and explenation)
Objectives as apparently designed seemed to function and were achievable.

Lack of map detail
Lack of script detail i.e. things like clustered unit movements.
Lack of story
It lacked the infomation for objectives to explain task without guessing.
Setting/battle seemed random and confusingly ahistorical (russians vs germans alongside usa??)
Units under player control did not have their movement set to 'hold' by default.
Most of the scenario was conducted by the AI (not always a bad thing aslong as the player isn't left out).
Overall effort seems a little rushed, thats despite taking into account your statement of being amateur (we mostly all are around here), I would expect a little more 'finished product' than this before posting it out into the community, including play testing or getting friends to give feedback beforehand.
If this is your first attempt and your looking for lessons on how to improve, I recommend reading the forums at DMS and looking at other maps others have made to get tips. One good map for a beginner to look at is Bonus mission 3 Battle of Vernon. Its simple enough to learn the basics of how things can be done and you can modify it and practice changing things (it wont overwrite your game just save it as something new)
Best way to learn is to look at whats been done before and trial and error. Sadly I rate this one as mostly error but dont take it badly, it just needs quite bit more work. Making a great mission takes a huge amount of effort.
