  1. 17 NOV scenario: Civil War Dera Ghazi Part2-4019 SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS: Need three COs: Blue vs. Orange vs. Red. Draft? No (unless we cannot even out the sides with players). This is a new scenario, which might need some balancing. NOTES: Avoid studying the enemy's side; only gather intel from the briefing and exposed enemy unit icons (enemy intel), and briefly looking over both sides to figure out which one you want to CO. Anything beyond that ruins the fog of war element. To avoid passwords, open the scenario in Network Session as HOST and choose the side you want to play and go to planning phase. You may briefly look at both sides like this to see which side you want to play or CO on. As CO, once you choose a side, go to that side and create your plan. Remember to play within the TGIF House Rules and SB.com community rules. Civil War Dera Ghazi Part2-4019.zip

  3. Yes, that it intentional (I made the template). IIRC, its supposed to represent the AT-7 Saxhorn, which has about the same range (1km) and terrible penetration power as the Dragon. So, that is as close as we have.
  4. Thanks for the offer. Glad we had alternatives.
  5. Actually, we may have trouble having a host this TGIF. I guess we won't know until game time though...
  6. 3 NOV scenario: Deliberate Defense 03-4019-OMU-MAD SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS: Draft? Yes.

  7. Thanks, we will look into the smoke grenades not firing in manual mode on the M1.
  8. Actually, the main concession was that we only have one manual fire key (SHIFT+SPACE), so we have to use it as context sensitive. On the real M1 you can fire either coax or maingun manually, separately, but in SB we have it based on what weapon system is selected since we only have the one key to use. The design decision being: 'it's good enough'.
  9. We are aware of that, thanks. Actually, we will look back into this one - there seems to have been some confusion in the tracking of this bug. That said, we have been aware of it since SB1 but it has never been a priority (maybe we can change that now).
  10. OK, no problem, I will stick around for a while after TGIF to help.
  11. Your question is complicated to answer via forum post, I can help discuss it with you after TGIF if you remind me. The problem is that the Apply If and the region scoring method are two different things, and I would have to have you explain how you have the latter setup before I can help give you an intelligent/helpful answer. But basically... 1. Apply If is really used best when you want to great two or more sets of scoring possibilities. Like, if Blue did not do something, then you grade them by a separate set of standards. If Blue destroys the other side entirely, then you want to give them a full 1000 points for example, then the Apply If on the 1000 points score would reference the event that triggered when the other side was destroyed (usually the same even that ended the scenario), while the other scoring items for objects would not apply, because, for example, they Apply If only when Blue does not totally destroy the other side. If you don't separate the scoring like this with Apply Ifs, then you will end up with some strange scaled score possibilities. (In your example though, the region score (3:1) and Apply If would both happen, separately. The region score would always happen, 3:1 determination, then the Apply If would simply decide whether or not to award those points in the first place). 2. That said, you can have scoring work where you just give points away, then have an Apply If that determines when those points are given away. But this is probably not a good way to do it, since using events and conditions would work better. 3. If you are trying to do what I did in that scenario two TGIFs ago where a soldier counts as 1, while an AFV also counts as 1, then you would do this via a condition. Both sides have the same condition, one for each region (objective) and it compares who has the most "forces" between friendly and enemy. Lots of different scoring methods exist though...
  12. 27 OCT scenario: FEBA Madness (M1A1 v Leo2A4) v. 0.71 SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS: Draft? Yes.

  13. OK, I will look into that. I did already add the Ambulance to both, and will likely add repair, but maybe not supply (the supply trucks on blue are intended for the strong point defenders).
  14. 20 OCT scenario: Relief to Defense 01-multiparty-4019-OMU SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS: FOUR COs are needed. Blue (US), Gray (DE), Green (UK) vs. Red (OPFOR). Draft? No. NOTES: Avoid studying the enemy's side; only gather intel from the briefing and exposed enemy unit icons (enemy intel), and briefly looking over both sides to figure out which one you want to CO.
