  1. Good ideas. This may actually be less of a topic for eSim Games specifically - not that I'm looking for an easy cop-out - since 30% of it seem to deal with established customs and practices of the community. Maybe you disagree, but I see our role more in "how-to" and "why" type of videos dealing with the simulation as a tool, less in "what to do with it". I guess, it's my long-winded approach to hint as politely and respectfully at that I wouldn't mind at all if someone would preempt us.
  2. Yeah, me too. Still a good way ahead, unfortunately.
  3. For version 5, we're planning to add integrated filter tools to help you search for certain categories of scenarios much quicker. Of course, automated scenario scanning can do only so much, if the forces you control gradually expand with events, or if they depend on random variables.
  4. We have these wonderful badges. Can we create a line for people who rate scenarios and provide feedback?
  5. I for one welcome requests for scenarios with a specific scope.

    Thank you for this very detailed report. We'll investigate shortly.
  7. There are obvious pitfalls in this business, and hidden ones. Not every detail is worth (or necessary) knowing.
  8. Well, doing the same old shit in exciting new ways.
  9. At least, there is no inherent function in Steel Beasts to adjust the joystick response function.
  10. Japanese and Korean would be very welcome additions. Italian, Greek, anyone?
  11. Don't want to hijack the thread but it seems to fit best in here (though even veteran players might still want to check it out):
  12. Still in Hanover, different street though.
  13. Still there, but I guess I don't count.
  14. Opacity is my main beef with such simulations. The underlying math & models are usually solid. The question is, are the PARAMETERS for the model useful, and so far, I haven't spent much time on this, the parameters aren't fully disclosed. So, the results "don't look obviously fishy", but I think that's all that can be said with a high degree of confidence. What can be useful for understanding are comparisons such as the different telescopic rod designs, assuming that all runs were made with otherwise unchanges parameters.
  15. Maybe it's still called "User's Manual.pdf"? Could also be that it's right in the SB Pro PE folder of the Windows Start menu, not "Documents" (Working mobile, and from memory right now... so that's why I'm not giving a straight answer, sorry.)
  16. I recommend to use the PDF if you're searching for something, like "incremental" (Windows Start Menu > eSim Games > Steel Beasts > Documents > SBPro Manual.pdf). If you don't like to read on the screen, at least you immediately know which page and chapter to look for in the printed edition.
  17. X actly. As if the answer was lifted straight from the user's manual. 😉
  18. Was hoping for the K2, but not a bad choice either.
  19. Yeah, the forum software no longer wants to accept http links, which is kinda stupid for pictures, even though I can understand from which angle they are coming.
  20. Your current settings during the planning and execution phase will override the settings. I'm not sure if the scenario defaults will still apply to computer-owned units, or what happens to other parties. Someone ought to test this.

    Commander 50,

    "which Abrams", was, I think, the implied question. But anyway, Mirzayev already listed all relevant hints.
  22. Do you still have one of your legacy scenarios that don't work properly? I'd be interested in it for our automated tests.
  23. I suppose it's another topic for a mini tutorial video. Create a duplicate of the Steel Beasts shortcut on your desktop or other preferred location (still possible under Win 10, but made needlessly complicated). Right-click, Properties, go to the "Target" line. AFTER the last quotation mark in the path line for the Steel Beasts executable add a space, a double dash, then fullscreenwindow. In the "General" tab you may want to change the text description for the shortcut. Also, you can pick a different combat vehicle for the icon to make it more distinguishable.
