  1. No worries if we see you that would be great. A bit more detail:
  2. Australia has moved to Daylight Savings and accordingly our Time Zones have bomb burst (since not all states adopt it). 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: If you did not attend last week, arrive a little early so we can get you the required map package. Based on the recent sustained good attendance, we are embarking on a more structured approach (only sustainable if the attendance is maintained). Planned Agenda: 1st Thursday: Teach / Discuss a topic (Attack, Defence, Convoy Escort, Reserve Demolition, OPs, ...) using a scenario / map as the basis for discussion. As to what we cover, that will be will be determined by the response to the related email "newsletter" for this Thursday sent to regular attendees. 2nd Thursday: First volunteer develops a plan for the tactical problem and we see how they go. There will be a brief debrief at the end looking at strengths / weaknesses of their solution, which the person COing the next week is free to incorporate into their solution. 3rd Thursday: We play the same scenario with a different CO (each able to improve / adjust their plan based on their predecessor). 4th Thursday: We play the same scenario with a different CO (each able to improve / adjust their plan based on their predecessor). 5th Thursday (if there is one in a given month): Q & A - You need to supply the questions or a "player's choice" determined by responses here / to email. As always, visitors (apart from one individual) / first timers / spectators are welcome. Current Standard: 4.161 (either download from scratch or download and install 4.156, then patch to 4.161) 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. Next meeting: 0830 GMT on Thursday, November 14th. 0930 in London 1630 in Perth 1800 in Darwin 1900 in Adelaide 1830 in Brisbane 1930 in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra 2130 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.
  3. I can do something in 3 hours time. In addition there is the usual BG ANZAC scheduled activity at 0830 GMT on Thursday.
  4. Maybe some disruption tonight. Planning on having more than one participant at my location so it will be a combination LAN / WAN session - there may or may not be some networking issues. At least the people in the building wont complain about lag, etc.
  5. Yes it has. SB1 for new Windows - not for me.

  11. Small world. I had relations in B Sqn 1st Armoured Regt (RNSWL), then part of 4th Armoured Brigade, whose Matildas landed there in support.
  12. Sorry, my mistake. The comment wasn't actually directed at you - I understand you are after a Leclerc specific solution. My concern / question for Ssnake was can they implement that for just the Leclerc and not make it the default for all vehicles. I've retrospectively added a quote to my response in an attempt to make it clearer, sorry for the confusion.
  13. Can you make that behaviour vehicle specific, i.e. only for the Leclerc?
  14. If you don't want the associated aircraft sound effects you can also drop them with a suitably sized IED bundle set to detonate at say mission start. I agree though that DPICM shouldn't drop a bridge.
  15. Ah well I guess this is the downside of them now being player controlled. Before they were "ignored".
