  1. 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.
  2. Presidents’ day

    Thanks 12Alfa.
  3. I Took the Plunge

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

    Seeing your avatar did jog my memory. Welcome back and enjoy the "new to you" upgrade!
  6. 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!
  7. Tanker Books/Novels

    Exactly Gibsonm! This edition is terrible!
  8. 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.
  9. 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:
  10. Where am I?

    Point Alpha?
  11. 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.
  12. Map Request Thread

    Awesome work, Mogwa. Can't wait to see the finished product!
  13. ETA on terrain patch?

    I remember hoping no one would pick up the phone between the hours of 1am and 6am so I can finish downloading a Steel Panthers patch.
  14. Map Request Thread

    The stock installation file (at least 4.109) does not include a corresponding .ter file for the Uijongbu Corridor Korea .hgt map. As far as I know, the Suweon-Osan map is the only stock Korean terrain file.
  15. I'm curious about what kind of scenarios and maps you used for the 80s games you played.
