  1. Any new crewable content since 2016?

    Off hand I can't remember between 4.010 and 4.023 but here is the current list (dark coloured = crewable): Probably a good idea to be aware that "crewable" varies: 1. Challenger 2 is "crewable" in that you can shoot from it. 2. M1A2 SEP is "crewable" in that it has a modelled interior, clicking on switches / buttons do things and you can shoot from it. As for future, I wont comment / guess as there has already been enough issues with "expectation management" regarding the new terrain, let alone anything else.
  2. Kanium 18nov18 game, "10 hour war"

    If they are full, that's almost 4 Platoons of dismounts.
  3. Ad-hoc/Impromptu SB sessions

    I hope the "set and forget" worked? I'll PM the AAR to those who were there later tonight. See you tomorrow morning, my time (1800 GMT).
  4. Beasts on the Prowl

    Perhaps send Volcano a PM?
  5. Ad-hoc/Impromptu SB sessions

    I can run it if you want - but not participate.
  6. Ad-hoc/Impromptu SB sessions

    I have the usual windows of Fri and Sat. Can I please ask that people try and turn up at 1800 GMT? I appreciate that its ad hoc, but my getting up pre dawn (0430 Local) to be ready at the required time (0500 Local), then sit for a hour waiting for enough people to turn up does become tiresome esp. on what for me is Sat and Sun moring.
  7. Steel Beasts: Content Wish List

    Well it takes a bit more than 2-5 mins. If you do that without: Bank recon Recovery assets in place etc. Then your are risking a lot. Deep Fording takes exponentially longer - turret seals, etc.
  8. Map Editor question

    I'm sorry I haven't really looked into it as I either: a. Post a request to the relevant area here (as mentioned previously). b. Get one of my staff (or submit a request to have the Terrain Branch do it) to make the map or c. Do it myself using SB Pro.
  9. Map Editor question

    Things like TerraTools from TerraSim (now owned by Bohemia) as an example But for those to work you need: a. The Budget. This is not $14.95 software. b. The raw data. c. The computing power to render the data.
  10. Hope the tests go well. If you think they are ready, happy for you to send them over early?
  11. 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 Last one prior to Daylight saving commencing here in Australia. 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: One of the following: 1. Continuing the discussion on Scenario Design and things to think about. This may well be expanded to include the recent "recce vs Main Force" battle idea. 2. If we get enough people coming back, perhaps run their solutions to the homework given out previously? I've updated the "SOSRA" mission to incorporate a "fix" to the FASCAM issue (refer post in Support thread). Link to the current version will be in the email accompanying this post. 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. Perhaps give some of Chris's latest creations a go. 5. 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. 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, November 15th. 0830 in London (I think you are now off BST?) 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.
  12. 11 NOV 18 - 100th Anniversary

    I know that its not yet 1100GMT on 11 NOV 2018 but I thought you might like to see an example of how we in Australia observed the commemoration of the ending of "the war to end all wars". For those unfamiliar with Canberra, the Australian War Memorial is across the lake from Parliament House (the old and new ones can be seen in the distance). The idea being that the Politicians look and think of previous sacrifices made before committing servicemen to a new action.
  13. Just confirming that due to various clock movements around the world, TGIF will start in approx. 90mins from "now"?
  14. Website downtime

    I can't tell if you are attempting to connect to the secure link https (which certainly works for me) or the unsecure http though. Perhaps your browser is trying to be "helpful" by resolving the domain name it is used to using as opposed to what you typed in (auto complete, etc.)? https://www.steelbeasts.com (this works for me) is different to: http://www.steelbeasts.com (this does not work for me)
  15. Website downtime

    Not for me. That is it opens fine. (using Firefox 63.0.1, 64 Bit)
