  1. Great to have such a long term fan around, 2000 ! And thx for updating your campaign, looking forward to playing it. SB is a rich and interesting tool to create scenario’s ... Best !
  2. Didn’t hear about this book yet: “The Chieftains” by Bob Forrest-Webb A positive review: http://coldwarhot.blogspot.com/2011/02/book-review-chieftains-wwiii-novel.html?m=1
  3. Status of the work on this scenario: 1. Currently re-reading the book & analysing how to turn it into a scenario. Will take some time 2. Next step: embellish the map 3. Then: create the scenario Just fyi, as you all helped me out.
  4. Hi all, This scenario is based on the great book of John Antal: "Armor Attacks" -> 1 counterrecon mission -> 3 options to execute it ... In the RED debriefing you'll find more background/solution of this tactical vignette. (contains spoilers !) The problem with the download of the map is FIXED now, thx to Sean & Volcano, appreciated ! Enjoy ! (shamelessly plugging my own mission - OUT) Armor Attacks - Counterrecon v.2.3 (SB v. 4.259) - 4.1+ SINGLE PLAYER SCENARIOS - Steelbeasts.com
  5. MAP PROBLEMS ARE SOLVED NOW Thx to @Sean and @Volcano !!!
  6. I’m not the author btw, that is @solus ! Just thought to draw some attention to his scenario by posting this small review not only on the Downloads page, but also here. Yes it’s double - but I think the scenario-makers, who can spend sometimes many hours on their work, deserve this 🙏🏽. Ideally I’d add an AAR here as well (no time yet)
  7. Thank you, Rotareneg. I found out now that the ground type "Streambed" has the effect to deepen the ground. So I'll use this to further adapt the wadi. Rediscovering the art of map making: nice. A detail pls: why are there under "Edit Theme" the 4 small boxes: "is water, is wadi, is snow, is dirt" ? Like, why should I indicate that the ground type "Rock" is wadi or dirt ?
  8. Alas, yes. Sean/eSim is kindly looking into this. There will be a solution
  9. That's magnificent ! Thank you very much, @Rotareneg And now I have NO excuse anymore not to make this scenario 😄 It will be the first tactical excercise from John Antal's "Armor Attacks - The Tank Platoon" Still pondering if I turn it into a mini-operation or not. Actually the second tactical excercise from the same book is now available in the Downloads as well. BUT there currently is still a problem with the map (download not possible). Sean is kindly looking into this with eSim. Maps are still a bit of Rocket Science for me, I
  10. I vaguely remember from SB1 that a tank standing in front of a row of trees or a forest would be spotted later by the AI-units, compared to a tank not in front of trees. => Does this still apply today in SB Pro PE ? @stormrider_spGreat how you added the pic from the real World 🌍 😊 (but why is there no BMP on that one ? 😎) @Ssnake and colls of eSim: amazing ! how close the SB world is to the real world ! Thx !
  11. Interesting, thx ! (but above my skills & timebudget)
  12. Well in the book it’s desert 🌵 (“The Valley of Tears”). Given Antal’s function at the NTC at that time (XO, 1st Bat, 63rd Armor - OPFOR) I was hoping it’d be a real location @ NTC. I suspect more and more however, that it’s a fictional location, as I can’t recognise those hills on the NTC-map. Checking the other maps now, for an alternative. Golan is a 1st possibility.
  13. Nice to play - if you're into SP: Introduction to various Russian kit Size of the map is well suited for SP (= not too large) Number of Blue units to handle: not too large & partly even scripted Tactically stil a challenge: be cautious ...
    Fully agree with Kondor999's remarks: very varied mission, showing a lot of Russian kit -> fun
  14. Yes, a wadi But I can’t pinpoint this terrain on the NTC -map =>Looking for alternative solutions Thx all Best, K
  15. Not sure if I can answer your question, but what is the name of the map ?
  16. Hi MO MO, If there were to be an update and you could not find a way to pay for it, contact me: let’s see if somehow the payment could come via me - or not. No promises, but we could try. Best ! Koen
  17. Hi, Planning to buy a secondary licence for father/son/daughter games, but unsure if I can install this home LAN (checking), so might have to to share the license over the internet with my children => Question pls: how could this go wrong ? Where is the risk Thx !
  18. Aha, that would be quite possible 💡, as I see now that Antal was XO, 1st Bat, 63rd Armor (OPFOR) when he wrote “Armor Attacks” !! 😎 thx
  19. Hi, Any idea’s for a map that resembles the terrain in the picture below ? It’s from a John Antal book. I’ll check the mapslibrary myself, but if by chance anyone has inspiration that would be helpful, THX !
    Fully agree, Magnum50 ! (and thx for your review, it helped me discover this little gem !)
