Box Press Released, And Command’s Role In Its Creation

Box Press, the second in my Smithtown Unit series of thrillers, is now out. That book, along with its predecessor, are meant as homages to the classic “Men’s Adventure” short novels of the past and are set in an alternate history where, among other things, the Soviet Union still exists in the 1990s.

And Command was used to help make these novels. Not by simulating battles, but by just moving units (in one case, a large propeller plane, and in the other, a helicopter) around in simple editor scenarios and seeing the time it took for them to get from one spot to another. This allowed me to write travel times that weren’t too fast or too slow into the books.
