  1. 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: So if you are interested, visit our web site https://www.bganzac.org and sign up. Timings: Thursday evenings, Australian East Coast time. Through a combination of democracy, state's rights and bl**dy mindedness, the country is now fractured into numerous time zones (three wasn't enough) for the next six months and we need to adjust the start time. Next meeting: 0830 GMT on Thursday, December 14th. 0830 in London (GMT / Zulu) 1630 in Perth 1800 in Darwin 1900 in Adelaide 1830 in Brisbane 1930 in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra 2130 NZST 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 0830 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 0830 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: In terms of this Thursday night, depends on sign ups but: 1. Last week I went through the plan for Rolling Thunder '18 - showing map and proposed sequence of missions, but happy to go over it again for those who missed it. 2. Discussion about "silly season timetable". I'm working until the 22nd of December and am then "off" until the 15th of January. What are people's availability over Christmas / New Year, do you want more / less BG ANZAC sessions, when? Happy to run some "early morning my time" sessions for our European friends. Come with a list of dates / times (ideally expressed in GMT) - or reply below. 3. Perhaps another crack at the previous Fulda delay mission or perhaps the Decision Point mission? These need a few people to turn up. 4. Do some "Brilliant at the Basics" work? 5. Something completely different. 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.
  2. Moved and renamed by the admins. Blaze away. BTW, the original post was in response to a Russian Anti Virus product removing/blocking SB. My comment (perhaps too obscure) was meant to suggest that as it was Russian Anti Viral software it would remove anything that wasn't Russian. WoT was a random choice, could have been WoW or WoA or anything else coming from Russia.
  3. I suspect the sabot round would still retain a fair bit of energy. As for HEAT / HEASH then depending on how hard the item was, it probably would have detonated, rather than ricochet.
  4. Or you could go to the link I already provided. Don't worry I've deleted the post since it wasn't being read.
  5. Exactly, I certainly wont be advocating replacing 100s (1000s ?) of PCs to accommodate it.
  6. Hope you get the outcome you are after. Happy to work through it with you, if you need a hand (assuming we can create the desired effect).
  7. I'm assuming you mean for neighbouring AI controlled units, since the human controlled training audience (for want of a better term) are controlled by the scenario brief / orders they may receive from HICON during the activity. For the flanking forces, you can script units to move to a location and "Open Fire If ..." and set the condition that they only open fire if the enemy have entered say a pre defined EA or similar area /region. You can finesse this a bit further by adding controls for Blue units. So you can have a a flanking unit commence providing SBF on say OBJ A as the assault unit crosses the LD (with an associated region) and check fire as the assaulting unit enters a region around the OBJ (with a different associated region). Is that the sort of thing you are after?
  8. Right so same question to you about availability.

  10. Ok. So apart from the 21st what other dates are good - for my question about sessions over the holidays? Also not sure of the worth of showing the RT18 plan if 2 out of the 3 likely contributors wont be there.
  11. But then you may well end up with a compromise that no one wants. If you just spawn a clone of an exisiting infantry squad then you'll have people complaining that: 1. They have the wrong weapons, too much ammunition, and other things that are fine for an Infantry section but not a group of guys scambling to get out under fire. Conversely if they deliberately abandon the vehicle not under fire (e.g. to conduct a foot recon) then maybe they do so with more ammunition, but they are never going to have a MG or maybe RPGs, etc. 2. They look "wrong". etc. I get that its a wish list, but some are harder to achieve than others.
  12. Sure, but there is a difference between "uncomfortable" and "motion sickness" - I never said I wasn't bounced around on occaision.
  13. Well given the ADF's no drug policy, I've never seen it medicated. Crewman get used to it and usually any passengers (i.e. grunts) are asleep or stealing the crew's rations. I've never suffered it, either when completely closed in (i.e. as a Loader or Gunner, or in a M577 / Type 2 ASLAV as a passenger) or being partially outside (i.e. as a crew commander). I don't think I've seen anyone else suffer either, apart from immediately after CBRND drill but I think that's more to do with the time in the tent with the CS agent, than the moving.
  14. Sorry who are you? You are of course welcome.
  15. Ideal for people with a low boredom threshold?

  20. Session 1: Start a Network session as "Host" and select the scenario. Session 2: Launch the software again. Start a Network session and connect as a Client using the IP address 127.0.0.1 (to simplify things, this is the internal IP address of your computer) Start the Mission in Session 1. The two instances of the software will be running the same mission, within the various limitations already outlined above.
  21. You just need to use the right commands. There is a guide for that:

  23. Well its sort of funny if you have that context, otherwise ...
