  1. "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.
  2. 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
  3. 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!"
  4. 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
  5. 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!"
  6. I may be way behind, when it comes to the SB PRO upgrades info. So, I'm not surprised that I have missed some info that was supplied with some of the updates. My question is, where is the detailed unit information, that use to be supplied in the extreme lower left corner of the map screens? I'm referring to the notations that detailed the unit type and its essential details like constituent numbers, (3 M1a1 tanks or the number of troops), in the selected unit, along with the unit ID. My program software, may have been corrupted in someway, because I no long get that information at all. That is, unless I select a unit on the F5 map, and then use F1 to view the unit in the 3D environment. Is there something wrong with my SB edition, or am I missing something that is very obvious? Thanks to all that reply, for their assistance.
  7. Fellow members. i appreciate all answers to my question. To clarify. I have a CM dongle from an earlier version of SB. I would like to use it with the next version of SB version, after re-initializing it when making my purchase. If that is possible, great. If not, that's fine also. I wish all here a great and safe Summer.
  8. I subscribe to a number of U.S. Defense Dept. newsletters. I thought some members, may find the article that I am providing the link to here. Of some interests. War game introduces early synthetic prototyping, which enables the Army to explore thousands more ideas than what is possible today
  9. As has happened in the past, for one reason or another. I lost all of the maps and scenarios I created. This time round, it was building a new rig. Before I start to reconstruct new maps and scenarios. I'm wondering if I should just wait for the next edition of Steel Beasts. Also, I have a CodeMeter Stick from SB Pro 3.023. Would I be able to reinitialize it, and use it with newer versions. Any thoughts and assistance with these questions would be much appreciated.
  10. On this Remembrance Day, I would like to say my thoughts, are with all who are serving, have served and sacrificed. In the defense of Freedom and Peace.
  11. Thank you all for the info you provided. Thank you MAJ_Fubar for explaining what I called Cyclone fencing. :-) I'll try to remember to use that term in the future. Also, thank you for agreeing with me, that it would be a nice addition to the "line objects" menu. Ssnake knows that I always have a long wish list of items that I would like to be included in SB. The addition of Power lines was a welcome surprise some time ago. ;-)
  12. I'm wondering if there will be any Upgrades or patches coming to SB Pro 4.19 in the next few months. It would be nice to have some artillery effected mid to high buildings. Cyclone fencing, pipelines, train tunnels, and highway overpasses would be nice additions. Just sayin.. :-)
  13. Thank you Ssnake I always appreciate it when you take time in your busy schedule. To assist me with my questions and little problems. Screen shots are things, like other computer tools, that I know of, but rarely or never use. Thanks for the info, and Bravo for a SB4.0 extremely well done!
  14. Gentlemen, Thank you all for your responses, and info. I was really puzzled. Sorry, I'm not Tech savvy enough to do screen shots.
  15. Gentlemen, I would appreciate knowing what Industrial object number 584 is. Also, I would like to congratulate the SB development team. On the really impressive number of new objects. They offer a lot of flexibility in designing scenarios. I particularly like the petrol fill up station objects. They are universal through out the world. ;-)
