  1. Steel Beasts: Content Wish List

    I am hoping a private user with the technical knowhow can one day create something more dynamic. I doub't Esim would want to spend the time on it but if it was good enough they may be willing to market it ?

    This would be great, even just the ability to create a Dynamic scenario. Choose the nations/date/map/time of year and away ya go. Everything else random. And if anyone has the skills to do one now I would gladly pay $20ish for it as an add on if Esim would put it on their site

    Gotcha

    To be honest I'm not sure. Not military myself so do not know if a commander wears a radio that he could still use to control his platoon if he had to bail. If its something he has to reach for my guess would be it would depend on how quickly he had to get out and if he was in the state of mind to reach for it. As for whether it's a worthy mechanic I don't know that either I think it would be interesting - if valid. As for the crew I suppose they would just act as an independent squad after the player transferred out to another vehicle.

    An interesting mechanic would be if you as Platoon commander had your tank disabled or destroyed, to be placed on the map (as part of the bailed out crew) and be required to make your way to another vehicle in your platoon to regain control of that vehicle and thus the platoon. Clicking "next vehicle" seems a bit too easy although I realise it may not be easy to program. As a follow up the next question would be "what if the player is then hit by enemy fire while bailed ?". Perhaps the first time make him go to crouch stance a second time go (And stay) prone thus delaying his ability to regain control. A third time - well it would need to have no effect as the player is invulnerable (As he is now). This would add another tactical decision as a player. Try to make your way to the MBT 600 yards away and greater protection ? or the easier safer/quicker trek to an APC that may be only 50 yards away. Players that don't want to go through all that could still click "Next Vehicle" Again - might not be worth all the programming work but I think it would be more immersive.

    Wouldn't I love to see that

    Ok, Thanks Guys !
  8. Steel Beasts: Content Wish List

    Is there a way to simulate an airdrop ? Define an area and have a say a battalion slowly appear within it's boundaries in somewhat random locations/ times. Would love to have proper parachute drops - and beach landings - and Air to surface missile strikes and for my missing Leo 2A6 crewman to appear Love this sim - just so much to add !

    I would like all the waypoints to stay the way they are just at the slowest setting as default and for a slower setting to be added. I find even speed 1 fast for creeping forward. Reverse/Retreat for example - If you set a waypoint on the map screen your tank defaults to Max speed and by the time you switch to 3d view from map view your tank has moved quite a distance. I know there is a set speed option - just an extra step.

    I think this may have been discussed before but I would like a slower vehicle speed than the slowest we have now so we can creep forward and would be nice if this were the default. Especially for the retreat waypoint. Others may not want this so just throwing it out there.

    Wonder if it would be an idea for the Devs to post a vehicle wishlist/poll which we could vote for ? Say 3ish votes each. That way they could limit the list to vehicles that they have info for or want to do even. Anything on the list would not be a commitment, just an easier way for feedback instead of sorting through 200+ pages of requests. I realise that most vehicles that make it into the game fall into the "Military Contract" orders category. People could still post requests outside of the poll but anything within the poll might have a better chance of being realised.
  12. i'm afraid I'm not very good at that
  13. Too bad we couldn't give something else up to the classroom version instead of log reports. Pretty tough to control a formation and send it forward not knowing if they have any ammunition left. Makes everything guesswork pretty much. Jumping to each unit is not practical.

    Perfect - Thanks !
