  1. Tonight, and for the first time this decade, I decided fire up Steel Beasts and get back in the proverbial saddle. Sending some virtual DU down range definitely brought back some fond memories and made it pretty obvious I hadn't played this simulation in 5 years lol. I'm not sure why I randomly decided to fire it back up, but I"m glad I did.

    It's been a long time since I hopped on this forum, and a lot of life has happened in between, but I'm glad there are still some familiar faces around, and Nils is still improving his masterpiece. I can't believe this thing has been around for almost 15 years now.

    I'm certainly a lot busier now than I was when I started playing as a teenager, but when I get the rust scraped off, I look forward to mixing it up with you guys again.


  2. German MPs sure suck.

    All MPs suck.

    Yesterday I got pulled over for driving too slow. I'm driving down a street on base where the speed limit is like 25 MPH, and I'm going like 10-15 and pass an MP. He does a U-turn behind me and pulls me over.

    The conversation goes like this:

    MP - "Why you driving like 10 MPH on my street 'bro?" (Note how he calls it "my street" because obviously MPs own the base and I'm just priviledged to live and work there.)

    Me - "Well, my chain of command put out that the next guy to get a speeding ticket on base is going to be crucified." (The previous guy did a 26mi. road march w/45lb. ruck. The next guys, PSG, SL, and TL will have to come to work on Sat.)

    MP - "Well, you know you can get a ticket for driving too slowly too."

    Me - "Yes, what is the speed minimum on this road." (I know there isn't one.)

    MP - "Well, there isn't one, but you can still get a ticket for impeding traffic" (My car was the only vehicle on my side of the road.)

    Me - "Was there anyone behind me?"

    MP - "No, but I can still give you a ticket for impeding traffic." (I fucking dare you. You fucking douche bag. Give me a ticket for impeding imaginary traffic.)

    Me - "Ok....."

    MP - "Well....just drive like 25 man you'll be good."

    Me - "Ya, ok, have a nice night."

    Please note, I like law enforcement officers, and all the ones I have delt with have always been reasonable, but MPs are just faggots. (At least the ones on Ft. Benning. Sorry if you are an MP somewhere else, you are probably a decent guy.)

  3. Army camo sucks our is way cooler why do you wear mint green in the desert?

    Actually, I recently read about an Army project which will fix the problems with the ACU camo. Most people have suggested adopting a different uniform, such as one that will actually blend in with the environment, however the Army has a better plan. They are just going to spray paint everything in Iraq with ACU textured spray paint. It's an ambitious project but the DoD says it can be completed by 2015, and for a mere $26 billion. If reality doesn't match your perception...change reality.

    And to think people complained about ACUs....



  4. My Dad actually read a review of it at SimHQ in late 2000 (He doesn't play Sim games though, so I don't know why.) He downloaded the demo of it and I played the hell out of it all next year. He got me the full version as a Christmas present in 2001. I was 15 then....now I'm 22. Damn, doesn't seem like that long ago.

    Of course, I pre-ordered the Pro version ;-)

  6. Nice pics.

    If you think the C-17 is big though, you should check out a C-5.

    I remember getting out of our C-17 in Ramstein and seeing one sitting in a hangar. Thing was rediculous.

  7. Actually, international law forbids to wage aggression wars, and the security council is supposed to intervene if a UN member state attacks another

    Unless your country happens to be in Africa or South America, then it's ok to slaughter people wholesale.

  8. i suppose you haven't been in a solitary confinement after a wet night out on town.

    doesn't take more than an hour before you start walking on the walls.

    I'm betting that in 6 days time I'm not going to forget its just an experiment. I think the problem was they were all a bunch of hippy psychology students that couldn't handle the harsh realities of the real world.

  9. Hey guys. I just got back from some training up at Ft. Knox.

    For an armor base you guys sure have alot of nice MOUT sites.

    We did force on force at Redwing and Anaconda, FRIES near the Redwing HLZ, PLT livefires at Kennedy range, mortars at Scott MTN, Strykers at Yano, heavy weapons at Heins, demo at Steeles, and CQB at Andrews and Burcham.

    Any of you guys from that kneck of the woods? Maybe next time I'll be able to link up with you.
