  1. ITEC 2018

    Goodluck at ITEC this year (in Stuttgart it looks like), eSim Games! I hope it'll be as (or more) productive and prosperous as previous ones.
  2. Wargames

    I mainly focus on WW2 and Cold War era stuff, but during one of Matrix Games' irresistible holiday sales I picked up some Civil War and Napoleonic games by JT and AGEO(?). Speaking of which, I got lured by Matrix yet again just last December and picked up CMANO, Harpoon, Order of Battle (Pacific & Marines), and good 'ol JT Campaign Series. I also happened to find out about GoG.com and picked up some old DOS/Win95 era games and just like that my PC is loaded like its 1999!
  3. Wargames

    Of all my wargames, the most accessible ones have always been titles by John Tiller. I recently purchased Budapest '45, Minsk '44, and Korsun '44 (shown below) from the Panzer Campaign Series. All Eastern Front titles from the series, with new team Wargame Design Studios, have now been updated to Gold versions (if you own versions from the previous publisher, HPS, you simply send pics to John Tiller Software of your CDs to receive the Gold download link and serial#). Refreshed from the ground up, with much improved graphics (the original personnel portraits were particularly awful) and many new scenarios (right, Volcano?). These are fast becoming my favorite wargames and I can't wait for the Gold versions to become available for other Panzer/Modern Campaigns Series titles.
  4. Are there other boys in the bubble, like me?

    I'm kind of in the same bubble. I spend most of my time in the map-editor and then creating quick scenarios to get a feel of the map. Maybe one day, when I know a vehicle as well as I know the map editor, I will be comfortable joining MP.
  5. Presidents’ day

    Thanks 12Alfa.
  6. I Took the Plunge

    Welcome (back). You've got tons more armor, choppers, and 3D infantry at your disposal now...
  7. In case you didn't know about this reference from the SB wiki: http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbwiki/index.php?title=Vehicle_timeline
  8. Almost 10 years since...

    Seeing your avatar did jog my memory. Welcome back and enjoy the "new to you" upgrade!
  9. Next SB PRO PE upgrade?

    I was really looking forward to the new terrain (who wasn't?) so to be honest I'm disappointed it didn't make the cut. It also looks like it'll be a while for another update, but as it is there's plenty of content to keep me busy and entertained until it does arrive. Thanks for the patch!
  10. Tanker Books/Novels

    Exactly Gibsonm! This edition is terrible!
  11. ETA on terrain patch?

    Hang in there, BigBadVuk! Lots of scenarios you can try out while you wait; dabble in some mission editing...or even map editing to kill tons of time.
  12. I didn't have anyone to play board games with but that didn't stop me from buying a few sets. I was mostly limited to admiring the box art, counters, and maps however. I've rarely looked back after I got my 486 and I'm sure I wasn't the only socially inept teen that welcomed AI. It is no surprise, however unfortunate, how the PC spelled the demise of the board/miniature game industry. Thanks for sharing your experience with Cold War era games/scenarios, Streakeagle. My fascination with the era lives on in SB. Oh, I had to share these:
  13. Where am I?

    Point Alpha?
  14. Map Request Thread

    It's very meticulous work. I bet you rejoice when you come upon a grid square that's mostly trees or vegetation.
