  1. No, expect it, but given the state of the model when Deja posted his normal mapping video a couple months back, I'd say there's less than a 50% chance of making it into this release, and far less of a chance of it being playable (ala CR2). Of course, I might be surprised...

    I never said never expect it , i just dont think it Will Be in this upgrade. Seems that some wishes have Been granted after exesive wining and some are not . So Maybe thats The way to go for The next upgrade.

  2. _--__[]KITT;234647']Shouldnt' that be in the angry man's thread?! There's nothing useful in it and it isn't funny either not in the least. I'd say it's almost trolling. Now now Tacbat play nice. There's no need to be upset about the idea of bouncing wheels or having physics in game :). After all we all can dream and to dream is to be hopeful and to be hopeful is to be alive.

    For once I'm still hopeful to change you hehe.


  3. Recently there was a lot of clamouring from persons outside the SB community for SB to develop a 'drop-in, 24/7 server' so that thousands more people could play and eSim could become a major player in the 'games' market. Thank G they declined. The fact that SB mulitplayer is purely coop means we need only play with people who will behave responsibly and in the spirit of whoever is hosting that particular scenario.

    Well , there Could Be a kick or a Locked session function. And after all , most Console kiddy gamers wont spend a 100 euro,s an a " game " like steel beasts. A 24/7 server wouldnt Be a bad idea if you ask me . It would increase the community and thus make more profit for esim . Its not that easy to get a game going you know? It can take some time to hook up with someone . And it depends on how Many people are on teamspeak or reply to a pm invite.

  4. Graphics is not SB's defining feature anyway. As long as it builds upon its strengths as an immersive sim (i.e. doesnt break anything or make it more complicated), I'll be happy.

    Then why make a engine grafics update and not invest more time in other more appealing features?

  5. Your posts to the contrary.

    IIRC, I think it's just above modeling TOPP high urination and defecation drills in for the 3D infantry.

    I didnt start posting about bouncing roadwheels , i just commented one .

    But i should of thought twice before even commenting on such a sensative and outrages uterly foolish subject . My bad.

  6. _--__[]KITT;234441']Ssnake must have nightmares about bouncing wheels since the topic resurfaces every few years :biggrin:

    I'm not demanding it but it's on my wishlist. I know it most probably entails a lot of work if not too much work to be applicable since SB Pro PE is a true sim than a game. :) So all I'm saying I understand.

    ...that I may have to wait more years for my bouncing wheels:biggrin:. Can't lose hope now can I? :debile2:

    To Be honoust , ive Given up The possibilaty of bouncing roadwheels .

    Its not high on The list , and it seems there is a whole community that lobby,s for not implement it in favor of other features. Also susspect that Its just to hard to do because of current engine limitations or it would just take up to Much coding time , and is thus shelved for The sake of more other features that take up less time and trouble to flesh an upgrade.

  7. Why don't you wait until more info comes out? Many people were moahning about an M1A2 since the beginning, and now it finally becomes reality. But here we are right away complaining about other stuff... as is usual the case when it comes to a new release I would say.

    Btw - did you guys NOTICE that there is a playable M1A2?! There were like 2 positive comments about it so far the rest is concerning "missing" stuff ;)

    Like i said in another post , The best is likely yet to come and The new patch Will bring some good stuff indeed . But i,m just hoping the patch Will have some groundbreaking stuff As Well. Yes new playable vehicels and non combatants are very welcome . But Its Nothing we havent seen before really .

  8. hmm, I was somewhat shocked.

    Maybe my expectations where too high.. but when I hear "new engine" I at least expect that also the models would be upgraded to 2013 standards by making the models higher res, higher detail.

    I see the same model, same texture.

    What's wrong with the bloom effect? Can you dial that down in options?

    Where's the grass? And the ground textures are the same?

    Maybe I'm playing devil's advocate here.. but I'm not really impressed what I'm seeing here. yet?

    Im Sure we are still left in The dark about The best features . But i was Sure not to have to high expectations about the new engine . I suspect that the limitations of The current engine just dont allow for Much more inovation by now. And if it does it would take loads of manhours to make any real significant changes.

  9. Radical as in "will have civilians in it (up to 12 parties in a scenario)", "new render engine", "50 new weapon systems", "25 new playable units", "improved path finding", "autonomous navigation for car and pedestrian traffic", "dynamic weather conditions"?

    Or is that not radical enough?

    I didnt say that , those Sure are soms exellent features. But personally some other features would trully make SbP grondbreaking for me.

  10. _--__[]KITT;234406']Personally I think the current Steel Beast Pro graphics are adequate. I'm not crazy over new graphics.

    What is more needed imo is just physics' date=' you know, bouncing wheels and all :biggrin:[/quote']

    I love the grafics update , but i,m hoping for physics and bouncing wheels to make the update radical . But i dont think Will any of these Much wanted features.

  11. Looking very good , i dont know if Its The schadows but it looks like They did something with The grafics in general to . M1A2 is very Nice and i love the interieur shots . But i,m hoping for something radical in the update .

  12. Boy , I just hope it will offer something really groundbreaking because we have to wait for this update for so long. And the grafics really really start to become old and outdated by today standarts.

  13. according to wiki(yeah you can take that with a spoon of tablesalt)

    the challenger 2E was made specifically to win a contract with greece, which failed to materialize.


    there's a picture of the tank. notice the new french gunners sight :P

    I heard greece bought a shitload of M1A1,s with EU money from the Netherlands destined to save the economy.
