  1. Hi Gibson I try, but I can't register on your site - I have to choose frontend language but the drop down menu doesn't work.
  2. I was wondering the same thing. Just came back to SB after several years and am looking for a good simple singleplayer scenario to take 4.0 through its paces. All I can find are old scenarios I played years ago. I visited all those VU's but I can't seem to find any downloads, except for PzBtl911 and its in German :-)
  3. Hi guys We just got back from Antvorskov Base in Denmark where the Danish Army conducted a 'pansertræf', an armour display and small wargame. We spoke to many tankers (Leopard 2, CV90, and all the other armoured vehicles in the Danish inventory) and every single one of them, told me that they were all actively using Steel Beasts, some on a daily basis, for training. Pretty cool, huh! They used it for platoon maneuvers, creating battlepositions, inter vehicular communications training etc. Obviously the simulator can never recreate the actual experience of operating an armored vehicle but it would get them a very long way. Being a journalist, of course I had to ask about specific issues where the software would come up short. They praised how the systems in Steel Beasts were totally accurate but they mentioned how simplified graphics sometimes got in the way of usability. Examples: - Things look smaller on the screen that in reality. That means they have it easier in the real world :-) - In the real world, the play of shadows on the landscape (from clouds and variances in lighting) often mask enemy vehicles and soldiers. In the sim, however, the lighting was too uniform, like a pool table. - The landscape in the sim was too simple, not cluttered enough. All in all an extremely cool experience. Here's a drive-by of armoured vehicles, including a T-72 and a BMP - enjoy! PS. the tank commander of the Leopard 2 at 1:50 has a surprise for us :-) http://youtu.be/N5NgCaemSyk
  4. Hehe - played it twice and got nailed badly both times. Time to get serious, I think :-) Is watching Cobra's video first considered cheating? ;-)
  5. Thanks guys, that was very helpful. I will do that tonight.
  6. Yep, it is this one: http://www.steelbeasts.com/Downloads/p13_sectionid/282/p13_fileid/2067 Should work, no?
  7. In my desperation I copied the files into all the folders: autumn, winter, woodland, desert, just to see. Still it won't show :-(
  8. Well, in that case I must be doing something wrong about installing mods. And yet I have successfully installed skins for the Abrams AND read the mod thread from one end to another...
  9. Hi guys Is there any Leo2A5 skins that work with the most recent version of SB? I haven't been able to find any.
  10. Ok, I'll start small then, by upgrading a couple of skins. Is the hires terrain mod you're referring to the one by Fidel?
  11. Hi all I've known about SB for many years but just got around to buying it last week. Got my copy yesterday, going through the tutorials :-) I see there are a lot of mods out there. Is there a 'stellar' set of mods, a set of mods that substantially improves the game, that you guys would recommend?
