  1. Ok fine, the why was incorrect. Doesn't change his answer.
  2. Well I didn't buy into the earlier discussion, as I said the guy whose opinion counts said "no" (but more elegantly) and I was just relaying the "why". As I said "IIRC". Anyway the answer was "no", so I'm going with "no".
  3. Copy uploaded. Top 63 Northings (17 to go) checked for road alignment. Then need to: 1. Compare sim road type to real road type (sim terrain to real map). 2. Add buildings / infrastructure. 3. Label major terrain features, key roads, etc. 4. Perhaps trim remaining surplus low tide areas. 5. Then duplicate map to add "exercise" components - that you aren't allowed to see. We will use the plain map, Army will use the augmented one.
  4. Ack. Will have an updated copy of the map project up on DropBox later tonight (say 2300 your time).
  5. Who is BG ANZAC? http://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: So if you are interested, visit our web site http://www.bganzac.org and sign up. Timings: Thursday evenings, Australian East Coast time. Daylight Saving has ended and the number of time zones have shrunk Next meeting: 0900 GMT on Thursday, August 24th. 1000 in London (BST?) 1700 in Perth 1830 in Darwin 1830 in Adelaide 1900 in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra 1900 in Brisbane 2100 in Auckland Your Local time: Local time for 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 0830 GMT, but so that the Kiwi's aren't after Midnight the Mission will commence promptly at 0900 GMT. In game chat / Communications: You'll need access to "Teamspeak" to communicate with us. This is detailed here: http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbwiki/index.php?title=Starter_Pack 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). http://www.teamviewer.com/en/index.aspx?pid=google.tv.s.au&gclid=CPLOveOGlcECFVgkvQodqk0A4g This maybe a suitable vehicle for people to see what the software is all about, without having to invest in even a short time limited copy. Anyway we'll see how it goes. Agenda: Depends on sign ups but: 1. New and improved Chong Ju issued a couple of weeks ago. Please Note: A plan file that you have built for the original will not work with either of the newer ones, so if you want to use your plan file, we must use the original scenario. Or you can get one of the newer ones and "update" your plan to suit. 2. Do some "Brilliant at the Basics" work? 3. Scope for Q & A / Tutorial / new Features in 4.019 session - again depends on responses and if people come ready to ask questions. As always, visitors / first timers / spectators are welcome. Current Standard: 4.019 Please use the new Calendar RSVP function or post here to facilitate planning.
  6. I never said it was irrelevant. I was commenting on the accuracy of the initial statement. I know Kanium has done great things, I'm not saying they don't. I'm saying that they may not be the organiser of the largest multiplayer events. I'd also suspect that Rolling Thunder and LNoT are/were bigger but they aren't held weekly.
  7. Sure but so is saying "Kanium is the biggest" or whatever it was without checking. Hence my use of the term "might".
  8. Pretty sure that idea was raised 18 months ago and maybe 2 years before that. IIRC, apart from quality issues there was the problem of not everyone having that vehicle. Not much point playing a scenario where part way through a Platoon of X comes in and you don't have the X model. Most of this has been spoken about before and Ssnake has patiently explained why some things can't be done. Its his train set, can you let him drive the train.
  9. Just means you are using the wrong ammo. They look like pretty good HESH / HEAT targets to me.
  10. I found an easier way - I just block him.
  11. I think TGIF might pip Kanium meetings.
  12. Hope it gets resolved. Good luck!
  13. I think you'll find they are LAVs not ASLAVs No spare wheel on the back, etc.
  14. until

    Sure. Do you have the software?
  15. Mulitplayer mode requires at least two particpants. One acts as the Host / Server, the other(s) as Clients. Unlike some other products there are no Steel Beasts servers running 24/7 offering immediate access to sessions. Sessions are pre arranged and usually advertised in the relevant "Multiplayer Engagements" section of this forum: http://www.steelbeasts.com/forum/9-multiplayer-engagements/ Most of these posts specify a day and a range of global times as well as sometimes the IP address. Find your local equivalent time, connect to Teamspeak 15mins or so before the scheduled start and you should see others joining. Then at the advertised time the session should become available.
