  1. Dust clouds from helicopters and rocket artillery would be nice. Also, a list of 'who-owns-what', and the ability to divide units during the planning phase in multiplayer would save a lot of hair pulling. Cheers.
  2. You can pretty much do that in the current SB version. Heres a very neat list of whats in there now (courtesy of Rotar) ;
  3. I dont see how graphical indication of hits defeats the purpose of anything, but it is well captured by the AAR
  4. Youre missing out! The weekly TGIF sessions are definately worth checking out
  5. The ability to make elevated terrain for roads and railways in the map editor would be sweet. Basically something like making a wadi, but an elevation instead of a depression. This would probably be a bit rough, (as are wadis currently) but perhaps the upcoming terrain resolution update would make this a viable feature? Cheers
  6. Im a big fan of the older vehicles too, and whilst having more variety of kit like the stuff mentioned in the OP would be most welcome, i personally think that adding more functionality/ crewability to the currently modelled stuff (ie; scorpion/chieftan/pt76/t64/amx13 etc) would be better 'value' and add more depth to multiplayer games. And yes, i have 'wished' this in the relevant thread
  7. The Scimitar gunner might as well not bother scanning while the vehicle is moving... i doubt its SOP to do that with manual traverse!
  8. Yes, use the T72
  9. Thanks for that, ill have another look at it after the update. cheers
  10. @TSe419E This is whats available on steam to purchase for DCS, but the 'base' game is free. Im not comparing it to SB because that would be stupid, but i downloaded it a while back to check out the 'combined arms' feature (tanks and ground forces playable-i think it was free at that time, or maybe i payed for it i dont remember)) and it was pretty poor in my opinion http://store.steampowered.com/app/223750/DCS_World/ Downloadable Content For This Game $9.99 USD F-15C for DCS World $49.99 USD DCS: UH-1H Huey $39.99 USD DCS: Flaming Cliffs 3 $39.99 USD DCS: A-10C Warthog - DLC $29.99 USD DCS: P-51D Mustang $19.99 USD DCS: Combined Arms 1.5 $39.99 USD DCS: Black Shark 2 $9.99 USD Su-25 for DCS World $9.99 USD A-10A for DCS World $49.99 USD DCS: Fw 190 D-9 Dora $49.99 USD DCS: Mi-8 MTV2 Magnificent Eight $49.99 USD DCS: Bf 109 K-4 Kurf├╝rst $9.99 USD Black Shark 2: Republic Campaign $39.99 USD Hawk for DCS World $9.99 USD Su-27: The Ultimate Argument Campaign $49.99 USD DCS: MiG-21Bis $49.99 USD DCS: L-39 Albatros $49.99 USD DCS: MiG-15Bis $49.99 USD DCS: F-86F Sabre $9.99 USD Su-27 for DCS World $59.99 USD DCS: M-2000C $59.99 USD DCS: F-5E Tiger II $49.99 USD DCS: SA342M Gazelle $9.99 USD A-10C: The Enemy Within Campaign $9.99 USD A-10C: Operation Piercing Fury Campaign $9.99 USD A-10C: Advanced Aircraft Training Qualification Campaign $9.99 USD A-10C: Basic Flight Training Campaign $9.99 USD P-51D: High Stakes Campaign (total is over 800 USD)
  11. Thanks for the reply scrapper, ill check again... it may just be that im not waiting long enough (5 minutes or so) but theres also the fact that 'task manager' reports SB as 'not responding'. Either way i think ill steer clear of this map and make something on BEKIBEKIBEKISTAN instead. With a name like that what could go wrong
  12. Im trying to make a scenario using the TerraSim_Terrastan map. I am able to load the TerraSim_Terrastan.ter file in the map editor, and also am able to load the TerraSim_Terrastan.ter file in the mission editor when making 'new' scenario via 'pick map' menu, but once i save the scenario and try to reload it, the game hangs during loading ("creating max height map" dialog box) and i need to alt-tab to task manager to close the 'not responding' steel beasts. Ive been told that this map may have issues because its stored within a folder in the 'terrain' directory, if thats the case and its just broken in some way, ill just bin it (along with the hours spent making the scenario!), but if theres a workaround/solution, id appreciate it. I apologise if this is something thats been covered a million times, i did try to find a solution on these forums and the WIKI without success. Cheers
  13. The thread you are thinking of is probably the wish list, although i dont know about "clamoring".
  14. A bunch of stuff in the WIKI about artillery, may be helpful http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbwiki/index.php?title=Artillery_Guide
  15. Apocalypse has made an explosion sounds mod (http://www.steelbeasts.com/files/file/2374-apocalypse-realistic-explosion-effects/ ) that has airstrike explosion sounds i believe
