BG ANZAC - 09 FEB 0830GMT (with TeamViewer support)

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 time.

 

So Daylight Saving has kicked in here and for the next 6 months the country is broken up into yet more time zones.

 

Next meeting: 0830 GMT on Thursday, February 9th

0830 in London

1630 in Perth

1800 in Darwin

1900 in Adelaide

1930 in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra

1830 in Brisbane

2130 in Auckland

http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20170209T0830

 

This may need to be adjusted given the late start in NZ, perhaps moving to 0800 GMT?

 

So a work around: 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.

 

Count down: http://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/generic?iso=20170209T0830

 

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:

 

As always depends on sign ups but:

 

1. Dependent on responses, we'll have our first Chong Ju solution:

 

31886505964_4b93e8b739_o.png

 

2. If there isn't enough for "Chong Ju" (or its not ready) then we'll look at an alternate scenario.

 

3. Scope for Q & A / Tutorial session - again depends on responses and if people come ready to ask questions.

 

As always, visitors / first timers / spectators are welcome.

 

Current Standard: 4.010

 

Please use the new Calendar RSVP function or post here to facilitate planning.

Sorry cannot attend this week but hope for next week. I tried to open scenario to make a copy to start a plan but it asked for a password?

OK, see you next week.

 

You don't need to open the file in the Editor (this is why you were asked for a password) to create a plan.

 

Just load it as an "offline session" draw your graphics and the select "save plan" from the top left hand menu.

 

Hope that helps? :)

I am doing a plan but am struggling more with my limitations on the graphics than with what I want to do.

 

Seems no way to have test at a sensible size or even right way up in some cases!

 

Resorted to Test to remind myself of what I am trying to do.  If I continue to struggle would there be time on next session I attend to discuss?  Cannot see a good guide to this stuff

Sure.

 

Or we can do an ad hoc thing - depending on your availability.

Thanks Mark - have enough annotated on the map with the symbols so at least there is the basis of a plan.

 

Next week I could possibly do something one morning my time but would not wish to impinge on your time.

So first submission tested last night.

 

A "brave" choice to choose converging axes. This solved some problems but created others. :)

 

Also he avoided the minefield which meant he had extra assets (the ones provided to breach the minefield) to re-task.

 

Clarified that conducting the breach is a requirement for future iterations - as per the CO's orders.

 

Might add some AAR screenshots, if I get time, tonight.

So "Plan #1":

The assault goes in:

Note the APCs in the foreground, slightly ahead of the tanks coming around the North side of the feature. Artillery and the support by fire position are suppressing the objective (obscured on the left of the picture).
