  1. Gibsonm and Ssnake. Thank you as always gentlemen for your quick, informative and kind responses. Indeed, I was thinking of the Fenneks as being like the U.S. and Russian self propelled mortar systems. Rather than just being carriers for mortar crews. As they say in TV Law dramas, "question asked and answered your Honor!" πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜Š Stay well all, and have a great holiday season.
  2. When I added Fennek 60mm mortar carriers to a "home made scenario"πŸ˜‰ I'm creating. I noted that it seems as though there are no ammunition options for the 60mm. mortars that the vehicles carry. There are the usual ammunition options for the machine guns though. Just to make sure that I wasn't overlooking a way to select ammunition for the mortars. I looked at the Fennek AD vehicle, and that also doesn't seem to have a menu option relating to the SAMs that the vehicle type carries either. I'm sure that Ssnake will address this issue either by adding the option at a later time, and in the meantime, possibly offer comments on the issue.
  3. My thanks to Ssnake for his usual great customer service.πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜Š I came across the videos you offered links to here in this forum while viewing other SB Pro Tutorial videos in the past 24 hours on YouTube.😲😊 I of course subscribed to SB Pro Videos and get notifications when new ones are available, and then view and archive them for future reference. It's is extremely helpful having videos to follow step by step. There's a big difference in reading how to do something, and actually seeing it done. Once again my sincerest thanks to Ssnake. 😊
  4. Thank you Ssnake. I haven't even begun to explore the use of drones yet. So your advice, "it's best to put them on a party of their own lest you not run out of callsigns". Is like trying to explain a tank to a chicken.😞 Are there any instructions on how to use drone swarms in any of the printed documentation? I did archive the drone info in the recent Release notes for easy referencing. Stay well and regards to die Katzen.😊
  5. Gibsonm and Mirzayev - Gentlemen, thank you for your much appreciated quick replies. Gibsonm gets points, Mirzayev gets the "Win". He was able to decipher my incomplete question. I realized after posting the question that I didn't indicate exactly where the container in question was located in one of the menus. I was going to post a "P.S.", but knew that someone would know exactly where I found the item. So the container is listed with the drone dropdown menu, and is the last item. The addition of attack drones should prove to be a very interesting addition to the weapons set. Not being the brightest of people, I'm looking forward to a lot of trial and error on my part. To get swarming drones into the air. My thanks again to Gibsonm and Mirzayev. Stay well well.😊
  6. Greetings all. I'm exploring all of the new things in the recent SB Pro release. I came across the item in the included screen shot. I don't know if it is mentioned in any of the documentation for the sim. Thanks in advance for any answers, comments and/or thoughts.
  7. My thanks as always to Ssnake for the SB sim overall, and his kind handholding in helping me to understand all of the features SB Pro offers. Doing some research on the SB version of the Centauro II Troops, I found this to be a great tutorial on not only the vehicle, but an explanation about the added scouts. Which is not mentioned at all in the videos available about the Centauro II in Google search. I assume the videos and articles were written before the Troop version of the vehicle was developed and/or operational. The really great bonus in the video, is the tutorial on how to use the new killer drone! This will really help me to utilize it. Stay well Ssnake. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜Š
  8. Gentlemen. Thank you all for your kind and helpful information regarding my query about operating Blue forces with Green (in this case), allied forces in the "offline" mode of SB Pro. My question was titled - "Pacifist Allies". Ssnake was able to answer my questions and help me in direct communications between he and I. My thanks to him in particular. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜Š
  9. @mpow66m Thank you for your kind, informative and quick response. Thank you also for your screen shot. I'm sure if other people visit this discussion, they will appreciate seeing what exactly we are talking about. I have used the "party dispositions" menu, and have tried various settings, but haven't found a solution to my "problem". Once again, thank you very much for your kind assistance. Stay wellπŸ‘πŸ˜Š
  10. Gentlemen. I'm in the process of creating an offline scenario that features Blue and Green allied forces against a Red force. The Green forces don't follow combat instructions, and ignore the Red forces even in the test mode. I can operate individual Green vehicles in the test phase, but not in "Offline sessions". In the offline sessions the Green units only move as directed, but I can't operate any Green vehicles, like I can in the Test mode. I have tried to make sure that the Green units are properly recognized as Blue allies. I must be doing something wrong, because I'm sure that there is a reason to have allies for the Blue and Red units. Any comments and/or advice will be much appreciated.😊
  11. "Land Object Lines Added Land Object Lines (LOL) as configurable objects. You may compose the LOLs from available elements of the land object palette (trees, boulders, bushes, …) and configure the density of the LOL, then save it as a template, and create these objects in your maps. Is is a very convenient way to line country roads with tree lines, field with hedgerows etc." In short, I can't figure out how to do that. I admit I am dense, and lazy. I've only created one or two unit templates in 20 years of using SB Pro. I think for someone like me. It would be easiest to draw a line that turned into trees or bushes, (not like the original lines provided in the vegetation creation that form irregular lines of vegetation), like I can draw a line to create walls, etc. Also, it would be nice to have a small selection of gates to close walled areas.. Has anyone seen any pipelines or oil refineries lately, or freight trains to put on those lovely railroad tracks?πŸ€”πŸ˜ Thanks for your attention folks.
  12. Ssnake, (sorry I misspelled your tag in my thank you commentsπŸ™„), it's been my sincerest pleasure to be a fan and supporter of SB. Thank you for the additional fencing included in SB 4.1 I love creating maps in the sim. Have a great Autumn.πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜Š
  13. Gentleman, I am please to announce, that with the kind and professional assistance of sSnake. I received in the past week, my SB Pro 4.1 package. It took five days, from the day I placed the order, to receiving the following in the U.S. Mail. One compact bubble cushioned envelope, containing - 1 ea. thick printed manual, 1 ea. thumb drive, red in color, 1 ea. codemeter, and 1 ea. surprise gift. Needless to say, I am very happy to receive this new version of SB. Following the printed instructions for installation of the Sim. It loaded flawlessly. I will have to do some reading, since the map setup is quite different from the older versions of SB. I have been the proud owner of SB from when the first version shipped, back in 2000. Aside from SB being my most important gaming interest. I have had the pleasure to interact with various members of the SB family. While there are a goodly number of members who have been extremely helpful and kind. I have to say that sSnake and Matsimus have been most helpful and kind over the years. πŸ‘πŸ‘Thank you gentleman.😊 "Scouts out!" "Fight smart... Move fast, and bring artillery!"
  14. Gentlemen. Once again I thank your for your assistance, advice and attention, concerning my issue. I use the floating taskbar running Win10 Pro. Normally, it is not a problem. As I said in my last "thank you". I just leave a little space for the taskbar to appear below the SB screen, and I can see all of the unit info where I should. Stay well.πŸ‘πŸ˜Š
  15. Gentleman, thank you for your kind and quick responses. I should have given some info regarding the screen resolution I am using with SB. In short, my monitor is a 32in. display. I normally use it at its native resolution of 3843 x 2141. Apparently, because of a "floating" taskbar. I cannot see the very lowest border of the simulation, and therefore can't see the information that I was referring to. The solution turns out to be, reducing the SB screen size. For example, I can see all of the info in the lower left hand side of the lower margin, at 3562 x 1923. My entire monitor screen area can't be used, but that is fine. I will experiment with screen size adjustments between 3843 x 2141 and 3562 x 1923. I'm sure that I will find a game screen size that I prefer, while getting all of the information the simulation offers. Once again, thank you all for your assistance, and suggestions regarding my question.πŸ‘πŸ˜Š "Scouts out!" "Fight smart... Move fast, and bring artillery!"
