  1. Steel Beasts: Content Wish List

    What you really mean is several "unit number randomiser"s since almost every country has a different call sign numbering scheme.
  2. Traveling overwatch vs Bounding overwatch

    If you want to find out - just build a test scenario. The Mission Editor is great at these sandbox type questions.
  3. Understood - will see how we go.
  4. Editing Scenario Map

    Also it depends on what sort of change you want to make is? If you want to add or remove a building, wooded area, etc. that is possible. If you want to add or remove a hill that is not possible.
  5. By now most readers will already know who BG ANZAC is, so I'll put the information relevant to this week in first, then background, etc. If you are new to the Forum, feel free to read the entire post. IMPORTANT: As a serving Officer, I am not allowed to make "public comment" about topics without clearance. This is why my signature block says what it says to cover written comment. Recorded audio on YouTube = "Public Comment", especially if I were to express a personal opinion (without knowing someone was recording). In addition recording people's voices in Australia is illegal without their permission or a Warrant. If you want to record a session, ASK! We maybe about fit you in (I maybe able to play the OPFOR, etc.). If you don't ask: a. Expect me to ask you to remove the YouTube (or other media). b. Don't be too surprised if you aren't welcomed back. BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front): Your Local time: Click on this link for the Local time in your part of the world Count down: Time remaining until Meeting start Mission will start promptly at 0830 GMT. If you want a pre game "chat" then by all means come on line at say 0800 GMT, but so that the Kiwi's aren't after Midnight the Mission will commence promptly at 0830 GMT. Agenda: No doubt numbers will remain "lean" until probably the end of January (school holidays, people away and Summer generally). One of the following: 1. Continue into Part 3 of the Advance that we began a few weeks ago or a different Test mission we commenced last week. You are welcome to join the journey if you missed previous weeks. This will depend on the original participants turning up. 2. If we have enough we may re-run the Q&A Session 4 mission with Mac in the CO's seat? 3. Revisiting some "not so easy missions" from the past - probably harder still after 4.023. These need a few people to turn up. 4. Do some "Brilliant at the Basics" work? This can encompass some Tutorials (along the recent sessions on Obstacles, Artillery, Symbology, Routes and Tactics, etc.) or working through some small unit density scenarios. 5. Start to discuss "Rolling Thunder '19" and perhaps likely tasks. As always, visitors (apart from one individual) / first timers / spectators are welcome. Current Standard: 4.023 Please use the new Calendar RSVP function or post here to facilitate planning. Background: Who is BG ANZAC? https://www.bganzac.org Described here: http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbforums/showthread.php?t=21753 A couple of examples of the BattleGroup at work: Multi Player session: Training session: Timings: Thursday evenings, Australian East Coast time. Through a combination of democracy, state's rights and bl**dy mindedness, the country is now fractured into numerous time zones (three wasn't enough) for the next six months and we need to adjust the start time. Next meeting: 0830 GMT on Thursday, February 14th. 0830 in London 1630 in Perth 1800 in Darwin 1900 in Adelaide 1830 in Brisbane 1930 in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra 2130 NZST in Auckland In game chat / Communications: You'll need access to "Teamspeak" to communicate with us. The Teamspeak software is available here: Download Teamspeak client software How to connect and use it is detailed here: Steel Beasts Wiki Entry - Starter Pack Remote Access / Screen Sharing / Whiteboard Sessions: We continue the use of TeamViewer so people without the Steel Beasts software can connect and see and hear what we see and hear (looking over our shoulder if you like). Team Viewer available here This maybe a suitable vehicle for people to see what the software is all about (you can even use it on a Mac), without having to invest in even a short time limited copy. Anyway we'll see how it goes. So if you are interested, visit our web site https://www.bganzac.org and sign up.
  6. Was fun being a Gunner for a change (no radio to listen to, no map to look at). Perhaps it might be worth doing a session on Crew Briefs at some point in the future.
  7. Cheers - see you at 1830 GMT. Coffee + Bacon and Egg Jaffle.
  8. ****Pro PE File Paths****

    Agreed. Complain to Microsoft - its their operating system (the Steel Beasts installation process doesn't hide them). You are missing part of the path. Within C:\ProgramData\eSim Games\Steel Beasts\maps there are sub folders: a. C:\ProgramData\eSim Games\Steel Beasts\maps\height b. C:\ProgramData\eSim Games\Steel Beasts\maps\terrain c. C:\ProgramData\eSim Games\Steel Beasts\maps\themes Put the *.ter files into "b." and they will work.
  9. I guess I get to sleep in since I'm not in the batting order.
  10. Hummer M2HB MG mounts damaged on game launch

    Have you tried the sandbox one I provided?
  11. Hummer M2HB MG mounts damaged on game launch

    Here (link below) is a test I just created. The M2HB's on the HMMWV work fine for me. Can you try it and see if they work for you? If they do then its something specific to the unnamed mission (perhaps detailed in the Briefing?) If they don't, then its something regarding your installation (maybe you have a M2HB mod of some sort installed)? HMMWV test.sce
  12. Ad-hoc/Impromptu SB sessions

    Yes. He joined us at BG ANZAC on Thursday - remember??
  13. Ad-hoc/Impromptu SB sessions

    Well there's two of us here (and been for about half an hour). Not sure where you are though, you don't appear to be on the Kanium server?
  14. Ad-hoc/Impromptu SB sessions

    I was working on the 1900 Z that people seem to have drifted to - rather than get there are 1800 and sit for 60 - 90 mins. But I'll be on Teamspeak at 1830 Z and will see what happens.
