  1. On this Remembrance Day, I would like to say my thoughts, are with all who are serving, have served and sacrificed. In the defense of Freedom and Peace.
  2. Thank you all for the info you provided. Thank you MAJ_Fubar for explaining what I called Cyclone fencing. :-) I'll try to remember to use that term in the future. Also, thank you for agreeing with me, that it would be a nice addition to the "line objects" menu. Ssnake knows that I always have a long wish list of items that I would like to be included in SB. The addition of Power lines was a welcome surprise some time ago. ;-)
  3. I'm wondering if there will be any Upgrades or patches coming to SB Pro 4.19 in the next few months. It would be nice to have some artillery effected mid to high buildings. Cyclone fencing, pipelines, train tunnels, and highway overpasses would be nice additions. Just sayin.. :-)
  4. Thank you Ssnake I always appreciate it when you take time in your busy schedule. To assist me with my questions and little problems. Screen shots are things, like other computer tools, that I know of, but rarely or never use. Thanks for the info, and Bravo for a SB4.0 extremely well done!
  5. Gentlemen, Thank you all for your responses, and info. I was really puzzled. Sorry, I'm not Tech savvy enough to do screen shots.
  6. Gentlemen, I would appreciate knowing what Industrial object number 584 is. Also, I would like to congratulate the SB development team. On the really impressive number of new objects. They offer a lot of flexibility in designing scenarios. I particularly like the petrol fill up station objects. They are universal through out the world. ;-)
  7. Thanks Sir. Unfortunately, I haven't been very proficient at applying old maps and scenarios I have created, to newer versions of SB. I appreciate your, and the members, help with those issues. ( L.M., Waterbury, CT. ) ;-)
  8. If I understand correctly. The maps I created in SB 3.027, will not be transferable to 4.0. Also, I count myself lucky. That I had the vision to have one of my newer computers use 64 bit. ;-)
  9. Thank you Gibsonm, and Rotareneg! Your quick, concise, and informative advice, is greatly appreciated. I have been a Military game tinkerer, since the 1990's. I love creating my own scenarios, and pushing the limits of game editors, etc. I purchased SB in 2000, after reading a review, and it has been my gaming mainstay since. Once again, thank you for your help and kindness. I live in Connecticut, U.S.A. and snow is an important part of my environment , L.M., U.S. Army, Signal Corp., Ret.
  10. Gentlemen, I was watching the "SB Museum" videos on the Youtube channel. I noticed that the author created an environment with a lot ground snow. When I create maps from the SB inventory, and use the various "Winter" themes. In the menus, I get the standard menu options such as, "No snow on roads". I have trouble trying to provide actual ground snow cover. I would appreciate any advice on how to apply snow on the Winter maps I create. Much thanks in advance to anyone offering said advice.
  11. Thanks RENEGADE-623 I'll check it out. On the face of it, I would say your info solves my problem. May all of your ops be victorious! ;-)
  12. Fincastle, thank you for your assistance and advice. I realized after sending my post, that I didn't mention that I am using Windows 10. In the past I have been able to follow the instructions in the printed SB manual I purchased. I'll look at the PDF supplied with the download purchases now. enigma6584, thank you also for your reply. I don't go out of my way to use "administrator" mode on my computers. Tech Gurus, advise against using administrator in daily computer ops., and suggest creating sub accounts. Shame on me cause.. I don't. ;-)
  13. Gentlemen, I am having great difficulty finding the maps I have created from the SB maps supplied with the game. I title the maps I alter as, "MY_Hannover.. etc." I can't find them in my SB map directory, the same way I can find the "stock" maps, and the scenarios I create. I'm concerned that I will not be able to transfer them to SB Version 4 when it is published. Your advice and assistance is appreciated before hand. Thank you!
  14. Gentlemen, Thank you for your concise and informative replies to my question. I really appreciate you assistance. "Scouts out!" "Fight smart... Move fast, and bring artillery!"
  15. Fellow members. I have recently tried to load the "Hot Fix" .RAR file. I searched for tools that would open it. There are quite a few, some of the publishers of which, are of dubious character to say the least, and some want payment. I selected a "free" one, and after downloading it, and trying to use it. A link appeared, which took me to another company in Europe. Frankly, I realize that I am not the most sophisticated computer user (level 6 ?). I don't understand why the usual file types could not be used to load the "Hot fix" into SB. Secondly, I wonder if I really NEED the Hot fix, since my version 3.027 seems to work fine. By the way, I would like some more buildings and infrastructure additions in the next version. Just sayin.. ;-)
