  1. Are there other boys in the bubble, like me?

    Single Player is fun, but for me multiplayer is what keeps me playing Steel Beasts. Adding in the human element opens up a whole world of new experiences compared to single player.
  2. We love videos

    Thanks! The OPFOR definitely kept me on the edge of my seat.
  3. Video Thread

  4. Doubtful. The "acting" was me with a cold, several shots of Crown Royal, and a script I wrote in about five minutes.

  6. Spintires Tank mods.

    It is a limitation of the game engine: Spintires focuses on off reading old Soviet wheeled vehicles. This is a third party mod. Also, the "TC" is turning a steering wheel.
  7. Spintires Tank mods.

    To be fair, Spintires: Mudrunner (or just plain Spintires) does work quite well for what it does: simulating off-road driving. In fact, I actually use it to work out how to properly conduct recovering off-road using a winch, how to properly climb the sides of hills, etc. Not that the desert has much mud, mind you. That being said, the terrain engine, while nice, would be kind of silly to add into a tank simulator. The Abrams, for example, doesn't have a transfer case to manipulate, locking differentials to activate or deactivate, or tires to air down to a specific PSI. You just shift the transmission into drive and power through it. Now if you are talking about wheeled vehicles, it is a different story.
  8. Hello

    Welcome! Be sure to check out the Starter Pack: http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbwiki/index.php?title=Starter_Pack Virtual Units (in my opinion) are definitely the way to go with Steel Beasts! Having to communicate your ideas effectively with your fellow players and ensuring a common level of understanding adds in an entirely new (social) dimension to the program. BG ANZAC is definitely worth going to. Although I haven't been able to play a session with them (2 AM on a Thursday is quite a commitment for someone as lazy as I), there are plenty of rave reviews. Bottom line: Gibsonm knows his stuff, and you will definitely become a better Steel Beasts player. Also, expect fun. You might also consider looking into Kanium. We have games every Sunday that start at 09:00 AM your time. You can find some videos on YouTube depicting some of our on-line sessions if you want to get a feel for the culture, mission set, experience required, etc. Also, TGIF (Thank God It's Friday) events are held every Friday at 05:00 PM your time as well. These tend to be head-to-head battles in which you get to meet and fight with other players from the community. The great thing about Steel Beasts is that VUs aren't treated like some sort of super-secret clubhouse; you can play with as many as you like! A full list is located here: http://www.steelbeasts.com/online_play.html/ I hope to see you around the community! Cheers!
  9. Awesome mission today, and an awesome job by all who participated! For those who are interested, attached is the OPORD that I delivered to the leadership. I would love to hear the OPFOR's perspective on their planning cycle. OPERATION CAUTIOUS TIGHTROPE.pdf
  10. US Amoured Cavalry TOE and employment?

    The Air Cavalry Squadron was called "Thunderhorse." It was made up of the following: A TRP (Combat Support Aviation): Miners B TRP (Attack Aviation): Name Unknown C TRP (Attack Aviation): Tankbusters D TRP (Air Cavalry): Death Riders E TRP (Air Cavalry): Name Unknown F TRP (Air Cavalry): Name Unknown) Also included is a maintenance platoon (Crazyhorse) and a military intelligence company (Trojanhorse). For actual flight call signs, I don't know specifics, but a "generic" solution would be naming them after the Troop, and then the flight lead callsign, ie. Tankbuster Red 1. I'm not an expert, so feel free to add to this.
  11. New .sce and .pln files have been distributed to the leadership. @Colebrook please check your messages prior to game time.
