Summary

In the nearly 10 year history of Steel Beasts, there have been plenty of items which developers, beta team members, and users have wanted to see added, fixed or modified. Items which are worthwhile are added to an enormous "to do" list at Esim games. This has colloquially become known as "The List". The problem is that there is a finite amount of time available to Esim Games for all these nice to have items and there are always higher priority or contractual obligations which must be met that preclude many items from The List from ever getting resolved.

Often a member asks about a certain idea they would like to see in Steel Beasts and is told that the item is "on The List". This is often perceived as a somewhat dismissive reply. Cryptic references to rodents and monopatchism by members in association with the list is humorous to more senior members and confusing to newer ones. In general it is an acknowledgment that few if any of the thousands of good ideas will ever come to fruition.

The List

While there is no known publicly released version of The List, this entry is an attempt to recreate The List and provide a database for users to search when curious about items that can (could, should, may, might, will, wont) be fixed, modified or added to Steel Beasts Pro PE in the future. Since there is no available version of The List, it is as much a wish list as it is a to do list when discussed by members

The following items are confirmed to be or are thought to be on The list:

1 A crewable T-72

  Its been discussed by everyone for years. Various theories exist about why it hasnt been done yet. 

2 Vehicle Suspension

  A physical representation of the effects a vehicles suspension. Again this has been brought up for years.

3 3D Infantry (and vehicle crewmembers)

4 Dynamic Lighting

5 Dynamic Scenery

6 Expanded library of map objects

7 New Vehicle X.

 Take your pick which vehicle it is and whether it is crewable or not. Whatever it is, its on the list somewhere.

8 On map artillery

  Everything from mortars to self propelled guns, someone wants it.

9 map objects that can be damaged

10 ~ 10000
