  1. Either is fine and is probably more a matter of personal preference than relative merit. Most published scenarios or multi-player events use one or the other. I'd suggest though you stick with one all the way through before embarking on the other. Doing T1 for M1 then T1 for Leo or worse T1 - T4 on Leo and then T5 - ? on the M1 will likely just confuse you.
  2. ETA on terrain patch?

    So now all you need to work out is - Q1 of Calendar year 2019 or Q1 of FY 19/20?
  3. Hello

    Welcome! In addition to Bond_Villian's post you might want to look here too: A little bit of overlap but might be helpful. If its convenient we have a session at 0900 GMT tomorrow that you are welcome to attend. Happy to do Q & A and reduce the learning curve if we can. Local Equivalent: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20180920T0900 Details on the session:
  4. We love photos

    Amazing what Squaddies will get up to when left to their own devices.
  5. By now most readers will already know who BG ANZAC is, so I'll put the information relevant to this week in first, then background, etc. If you are new to the Forum, feel free to read the entire post. IMPORTANT: As a serving Officer, I am not allowed to make "public comment" about topics without clearance. This is why my signature block says what it says to cover written comment. Recorded audio on YouTube = "Public Comment", especially if I were to express a personal opinion (without knowing someone was recording). In addition recording people's voices in Australia is illegal without their permission or a Warrant. If you want to record a session, ASK! We maybe about fit you in (I maybe able to play the OPFOR, etc.). If you don't ask: a. Expect me to ask you to remove the YouTube (or other media). b. Don't be too surprised if you aren't welcomed back. BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front): Your Local time: Click on this link for the Local time in your part of the world Count down: Time remaining until Meeting start Mission will start promptly at 0900 GMT. If you want a pre game "chat" then by all means come on line at say 0800 GMT, but so that the Kiwi's aren't after Midnight the Mission will commence promptly at 0900 GMT. Agenda: One of the following: 1. Continuing the discussion on Scenario Design and things to think about. 2. If we get enough people coming back, perhaps run their solutions to the homework given out previously? I've updated the "SOSRA" mission to incorporate a "fix" to the FASCAM issue (refer post in Support thread). Link to the current version will be in the email accompanying this post. 3. Revisiting some "not so easy missions" from the past - probably harder still after 4.023. These need a few people to turn up. 4. Perhaps give some of Chris's latest creations a go. 5. Do some "Brilliant at the Basics" work? This can encompass some Tutorials (along the recent sessions on Obstacles, Artillery, Symbology, Routes and Tactics, etc.) or working through some small unit density scenarios. As always, visitors (apart from one individual) / first timers / spectators are welcome. Current Standard: 4.023 Please use the new Calendar RSVP function or post here to facilitate planning. Background: Who is BG ANZAC? https://www.bganzac.org Described here: http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbforums/showthread.php?t=21753 A couple of examples of the BattleGroup at work: Multi Player session: Training session: Timings: Thursday evenings, Australian East Coast time. Daylight saving is over here, just in time for BST etc. to kick in. Next meeting: 0900 GMT on Thursday, September 20th. 0900 GMT / Zulu / UTC 1000 in London (BST) 1700 in Perth 1830 in Darwin 1830 in Adelaide 1900 in Brisbane 1900 in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra 2100 in Auckland In game chat / Communications: You'll need access to "Teamspeak" to communicate with us. The Teamspeak software is available here: Download Teamspeak client software How to connect and use it is detailed here: Steel Beasts Wiki Entry - Starter Pack Remote Access / Screen Sharing / Whiteboard Sessions: We continue the use of TeamViewer so people without the Steel Beasts software can connect and see and hear what we see and hear (looking over our shoulder if you like). Team Viewer available here This maybe a suitable vehicle for people to see what the software is all about (you can even use it on a Mac), without having to invest in even a short time limited copy. Anyway we'll see how it goes. So if you are interested, visit our web site https://www.bganzac.org and sign up.
  6. Sunday 16sep18 game?

    Sorry, can't make the 16th. Maybe able to visit on the 30th.
  7. Hurricane Florence

    Good luck to all my colleagues on the East Coast of the USA. Looks like you might get damp over the next few days.
  8. Because its "crap" (technical term) which is pretty much the definition of this sort of first person shooter.
  9. Well 1944 would need you to be 97 or so , but not to worry. See you soon.
  10. Here's a video (Spike footage starts at about 5:30): A whole bunch of "spec fire" with the target acquired well after firing. Often the Missile team has no sight picture at all but they are fired anyway. Some fall short because they were out of range, but the barrage continues.

  12. JERXHEIM hasty defense reinforced platoon M1-M2

    I'm afraid I tend not to do videos: a. Can't record my voice (so a bit pointless me recording a video with me not saying anything ) b. Don't have the requisite skills / software. c. Don't really want to tax the system with me already hosting and playing as well. Anyway here is the AAR (file name a little different as we did a save due to networking issues): https://my.pcloud.com/publink/show?code=XZcX017Z14NpH6w8g4LUhDovfPn2wRaYyCky You'll note one vehicle starts forward of the others. This is the reason for the save and re-start. I had driven some distance when others started asking "When are we going to start?".
  13. JERXHEIM hasty defense reinforced platoon M1-M2

    Took this out for a spin this morning with 5 other people - one person per vehicle. End state: Red: Stopped and pretty much destroyed. Blue: Bridge secured 1 x M1 K Killed 2 x M1s with 0 ammunition 1 x M1 with 1 x APFSDS, 3 x HEAT. 2 x Bradleys with 0 TOW 2 x Javelin teams able to reload from Bradleys - eventually it would be good to be able to limit the number of "trips to the well" for reloads (but that is not the Scenario's fault). Addition of Power lines helped with Range Card / Engagement Area management. Can confirm that still remains a good one, but perhaps to be played sparingly (let the stress dissipate before having another go). Happy to provide an AAR if anyone wants to see what they are in for.
  14. Ad-hoc/Impromptu SB sessions

    Hope the second mission went OK? Happy to run it again sometime when I can be there throughout. Link to AAR: https://my.pcloud.com/publink/show?code=XZToy17ZKs9KlhL2AxXRFap197kHIk0BaBRV
  15. German Marder Milan

    Welcome! The MILAN is not modelled as attached to the vehicle - its only modelled as being carried by dismounts in the Platoon. The end result is there is currently no MILAN post on the Marder turret but it should be in amongst the dismount teams.
