At least now I'm starting to get a better idea what is needed and also that being mentally prepared goes a very long way.
Very few people can go 24 hours without rest.
the operational tempo of a 24 hour game is very different than a 6 hour skirmish.
Milsim games are typically "mission" oriented.. over a 24 hour period you may have several Missions.. some missions could be static and defensive in nature, some could be very active, a raid or deliberate attack.
some "missions" may be .. take 3 hours and eat and rest.
overall one of the things that give many people trouble is the fact that you will probably not be in control of when you do what. Milsims usually have a defined command structure that will organize the force and define missions and timings.
