  1. I think they are trying to avoid “work arounds” on top of several previous “work arounds”. I wouldn’t go as far as saying its fragile, but I’m sure there’s a bunch of interdependences - change one thing and have a range of foreseen and unforeseen consequences.
  2. I suspect he will say “Caveat Emptor”. My understanding is the the code is pretty convoluted in terms of various pieces of code added on top of older code and that making changes to incorporate this might reveal other issues, whereas their planned “rebuild from the bottom up” will likely address these and other issues in a more integrated way.
  3. I suspect the vast majority do appreciate the efforts.
  4. Daylight Saving has ended and the number of AS time zones have shrunk. 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.

If you want a pre game "chat" then by all means come on line at say 0830 GMT, but so that the Kiwi's aren't after Midnight, the Mission will commence promptly at 0900 GMT. Agenda: 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 meeting: 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 Wednesday sent to regular attendees. 2nd meeting: 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 meeting: We play the same scenario with a different CO (each able to improve / adjust their plan based on their predecessor). 4th meeting: We play the same scenario with a different CO (each able to improve / adjust their plan based on their predecessor). 5th meeting (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.

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. Daylight Saving has ended and the number of time zones have shrunk Next meeting: 0900 GMT on Thursday, June 16th. 1000 in London (BST) 1700 in Perth 1830 in Darwin 1830 in Adelaide 1900 in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra 1900 in Brisbane 2100 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.
  5. Canadians used them too (they called them Lynx): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lynx_reconnaissance_vehicle
  6. I suspect if you are playing published scenarios you aren’t seeing “full” maps. Even without worrying about the military / classroom version, if you use the version you have, open the Mission Editor, create a new mission and select the largest sized map (i.e. drag the square as far as it will go) you’ll find that a scenario can already cover a lot of ground.
  7. Well you can copy routes / route chains with a very similar outcome.
  8. @Nike-Ajax It’s just going to look a little different when it blows up.
  9. Is there any chance of publishing “normal” YouTube videos as well? The whole “shorts” format is basically a waste of time for me (need to load it 3 times before you get video and sound, cropped size reduces detail, etc.). This is what I see on the first 5 attempts to load the latest one: I get they are designed for the zero attention span audience and are no doubt all the rage - but for me they are pointless.
  10. FYSA, The email subscription option appeared to not load the correct web page - at least for me.

  12. Thanks very much. 1x $40, 7x $25 standing by.
  13. Thanks. Any figures for secondary licenses, or is it just $40 regardless?
  14. I suspect the issue is the every popular port forwarding. But as your post was at about midnight me time I’ll let Lumi look after you.
  15. Ah so the smoke/dust generated by the firing at the BM-21's location. Not the smoke generated at the location where a smoke mission has been called for.
  16. There is no concrete release date. "As soon as practicable, but when its ready" is a good default position.
  17. And I guess you now need a passport / visa?

  24. Well no big surprise there since they aren’t an IFV or an APC. They were designed to counter an IED threat, not a conventional war (the big windscreen is a bit of a giveaway).
