  1. If course. I'm not expecting the first week of July. Months go by like weeks for me now, so it won't be a long wait even if it's the end of the month.
  2. The flight pattern looks much more realistic now. Great changes and fixes.. I look forward to the post that says: "The update is available for download" 😁July is so close!
  3. Thanks. I've returned to SB after a longer absence so some skills still need to be sharpened a bit like estimating ranges using mils.
  4. No worries. It was a crowd compared to other sessions I played and furthermore I was in a fairly quiet sector most of the time.
  5. My bad. I have to put more effort into vehicle recognition.
  6. I was in a game with you two weeks ago so I've got everything set up.
  7. I feel obliged to play this one since Poland is involved. I'd like to take one of the SEPs, either A22 or A24, but if if we are short on crewed NAZLAW's I can also take on of the vehicles in B1.
  8. I'm not sure if I'll by back by the time the sessions starts. But if I'm at home I'll definitely let you know.
  9. I sorted out my problem with map packages so I should be able to join you this weekend. I can take one of the Piranha sections. e.g. B13.
  10. British tests of HESH rounds on Tiger II shortly after World War 2. It has quite good of how the round works and some very good footage of both external and internal effects.
  11. I had a different problem. My game crashed after I changed file path to map packages in Options inside the game. If I remember correctly: My SB is in c:/Programs/eSimGames/Steel Beasts/... Packages are in c:/Programs/terrains (or something like that) I'm on a different computer niw. I wanted to change File Path option to the default c:/ProgramData/eSimgames Then I changed to a different path When I wanted to recede back to c:/Programs/terrains (my actual packages patch defined during the installation) SB displayed a promo that it encountered an exception and had to quit. When I rested the game it went straight to File Path option and not the Main Menu and I could not do anything about it. When changing file path the game was run in the administrator mode. The only way to solve it was to reinstall the sim completely.
  12. Hi. I should have a pretty free Sunday so I would like to take a section of Leos in A3 platoon with Nike-Ajax.
  13. Yes, I can keep shadow mapping quite high, at 6 - 7. In my case the biggest frame rate killer is Dynamic Cache Size. I reduced it to minimum and got really decent frame rates. Smoke and vegetation have much lower impact in my case. Great looking smoke by the way. 🙂 I keep road rendering at 3 usually but reduce it to 2 in some more intense scenarios. I've found my sweet spot in setting now and overall 4.157 is give me much better overall frames rates. Previously it was unplayable in large and heavily wooded terrain at my base settings. I had to reduce them severely to obtain manageable level. 4.1 is much more consistent and better looking at the same time. 🙂
  14. CPU: i5 @ 2.8 GHz / 12 GB of RAM and 2GB of view memory. The problem was too high setting for Dynamic Cache. Once decreased to minimum, I get steady and better frame rates than in 4.0. Smoke an
  15. I’ve just noticed that Dynamic Cache Size has the greatest impact on frame rates on my system. Once decreased to 55, the problem I described above is far less severe.
  16. There’s another issue I noticed. The sim either smooth for 30-60 seconds but then frame rates drop significantly. When I alt tab, it gets back to normal but again, only for 30-60 seconds. I still have to check if it’s not hardware related. I did not have much time to test it today. I’m posting it because somebody has had the same problem.
  17. And now, unlike any other week, Monday is something we are all looking forward to. 😀

    We love photos

    BMP-1 is extremely small. I'm 5ft 11" and I could barely squeeze in the commander's hatch. I can't imagine how one can escape quickly in case of fire or battle damage. And I though T-72 was small before trying to get into that.
  19. Thanks. It might be a tight schedule for me though. I thought I might be able to get back home earlier than usual but I will probably be away for at least another 2 hours. I'll let you know if I manage to make it. I may join one of your games on another occasion though. I've barely played Steel Beasts recently but I'm planning to come back to it.
  20. I could barely squeeze my myself in a T-72 hatch. Using binoculars would probably require chopping a part of my head off. Lea 2 is not that more spacious either. A workaround is using Track IR. You can actually zoom the view through F4 view if you have one.
  21. Yom Kippur war. And something modern. I love this new T--72 model.
  22. Leopards advancing through e a smoke screen.
