  1. I did watch most of the live stream yesterday and brought back great memories. I am afraid I am really rusty to jump into such scenario now but when 4.3 gets released I hope I will be able to do so. Thanks for the streaming !
  2. My experience as flyer is just with aviation simulators. There are many types of simulation levels each level targeted to simulate "specific" elements (procedures, systems learning...) being the Level D or full flight simulators the ones that get you to the closest possible flying experience that you can get interfacing with a machine in the ground. However all of the other non Level D are as well considered simulators if they meet the target to reproduce the necesary enviroment or conditions to facilitate the learning objective. Probably the word simulator itself should be reviewed due to the tremendous advances of technology and the huge ammount of options available today. Steel Beasts is used by a number of militaries as a training tool that simulates, armour, ballistics, and some of the significant vehicle systems while providing a combat enviroment that allows effective tranining to be performed. I have talked with some "profesional " users of Steel Beast Pro and of course for them this software is a training and checking tool. They get trainned and also checked and graded in excercises, and the same that happens to me when I regularly have to climb into an aircraft Level D simulator, neither is fun or entertaiment but work, many times hard and stressful work. So all comes to what do you call a simulator. A professional Level D simulator can also be used for entertaiment and purposes (if you are willing to pay the more tham 1000 euro pero hour "in the box" ) Since I am not a professional tanker, I use Steel Beast Pro PE as an entertaiment tool but also as a learning tool and if I compare it with other PC Titles available to the public, I like to call SB a simulator in his own right. By the way I have just pre-ordered 4.3 ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  3. So I want to Thank Ssnake and eSim Games for the beautiful new Mouse Pad that comes to replace my trusty and wlee used Steel Beasts Mouse pad that I had for many years. So this was my old mousepad And here is the new one, accompanied by my favourite Steel Beasts Coffe Mug Awesome new mousepad !! Thanks a lot !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  4. Thanks for the work to get this organized Gibsonm. Very much appreciated!
  5. COA 2 as well. This is such an special event that we should enjoy it at its max. Worth the wait.
  6. This time I cannot make it since I will be travelling the next days. Have fun!
  7. Thanks for the mission. It was quite interesting. I will be offline the next two weeks so I will miss at least two Sundays, See you in a couple of weeks. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  8. I also reconfirm and although it is not guaranteed we may have also one or two more players from the Spanish Tizona, although at this moment I can only confirm my attendance for sure.
  9. I have not been able to confirm it until now. Mech Infantry. A53 if possible. Ths
  10. Sounds really interesting. If possible I would like one DF-30 in 1D. Thanks Would the DF-30 and DF-90 field APS? I see all vehicles with APS except the weak ones hehe.
  11. I also enjoyed the mission with the DF30. Thanks for the organization and leadership! Nice mission๐Ÿ‘Œ
  12. I have downloaded the scenario and launched it check the equipment and ammo of my vehicle and I have found the dismounts have a very strange uniform, These are the ones in the DF30 Is this a bug or ....else?
  13. It is not that bad. I am used to the longer waiting time in the Pizarro for emptying shells. Still both great vehicles that can do a fantastic work.
  14. I think Marques post and comment about about this subject are related to the PE version and for this reason I do not think it may have a negative impact in the training of military organizations. Pls pls pls, give us the two dismounts option ๐Ÿ˜‰
  15. I regret to respectfully disagree. it is the scenario editor who defines the training scope and objectives. In Steel Beasts, vehicles can be added with our without dismounts and such dismmounst can carry multiple types of weapons. We have recently incorporated in 4.1 the capability of active protection systems to vehicles that in reality have not such system installed although they could eventually have it. If the option to transport a 2 dismounts exists in the vehicle, why it should not be an option to use is or not by the scenario designer? The sim allows very creative combinations, such loading US ATGM team carrying an Javelin in a BMP-2. I can even install an active protection system in the Centauro that is not used in real life but I cannot carry 2 dismounts that although this profile is not actually in use by the Spanish Army in a regular basis, the capacity to do so exists. As scenario designer I would like to have the option to define how the vehicles are equiped and what loadaouts are carried. SB allows a nice variety of combinations. I do not see a โ€žnegative training curveโ€œ gives me options to select vehicles loadout, ammunition, soldier uniform colour or optional weapons. The scenario designer is in my opinion responsible to configure such option in a way they meet the scope and criteria of the intended training objectives
  16. The Centauro is in my humble oppinion the sexiest and most interesting vehicle in the whole SB. But forgive me,I am very biased. ๐Ÿ˜ Has no protection so even a car with an M2 can destroy it but packs a severe punch that when properly administered can destroy or dissable any vehicle in the sim. Allows you to move real fast and stealthy in the battlefield. The only thing I miss is that in the early version of the vehicle in the sim it carried a team of two observers dismopunts but that was removed for some obscure reason. That capability that still exists on the real vehicle made it a real reccon vehicle. From time to time I repeat my request in the Steel Beast Wishlist to restore the capability of carrying observers, so far unsusscesfuly. Maybe Nils will read it here In any case my favourite vehicle.
  17. Thanks for the mission to the editor, organizers and leadership. !!! ๐Ÿ‘
  18. Fantastic. I was waiting for an scenario with the new vehicles. Looks really interesting. Please a possition for me in a DF 30. If available Beast 14. By the way there is an error on the text. It says August 18 but I guess you mean Sunday 25th August.
  19. If you liked The Defense of Hill 781, you may also like this other one
  20. Sorry, my mistake. I got confused with the information of this thread that holds similar titles, videos and content -Rolling Thunder 16 - Back Story
