I was hoping to see some more options for cold war era UK in that list...a man can dream ;)

The joys of the "Wish List" - not every wish is granted.

According to photographic evidence, I think the Boxer, at least, should have an emblem on the front. Since that texture is shared with the APC version of the vehicle, ESim could handle it with a decal, in the same way the Dingo is.

 

easily done. I never did texturing myself in steel beasts, although I would like to. Yes, the forward aspect is important hence why I ask if TIS can spot and identify an emblem.. It would be a terrible day to the docs if they are fired upon.

Yeah, where's [UK 1980] ?!

Seriously, make it happen, it's THE only one missing. 

I'd think it would be better if you choose one vehicle and lobby for it.

I think those days are gone, or probably far off. Most of what we're getting is for military customers. Maybe I'm wrong.

Yes, that is wrong.   We spent two years laying down plumbing here. Once everything is fundamentally in order, then of course we will want to go back to making fun stuff, from time to time.

 

Also, the military didn't request more detailed crew served weapons. This was one of our 'pet projects'. Don't forget that (most of the) Steel Beasts developers also play it too.

  1. None of our military customers requested the playable
    • T-55,
    • T-62,
    • T-72,
    • BMP-2,
    • BTRs,
    • Challenger 2,
    • Scimitar,
    • Warrior,
    • M1,
    • M1IP,
    • M1A2 SEP,
    • M60A3,
    • Sho't Kal,
    • GTK Boxer,
    • Marder 1A3,
    • Luchs A2,
    • Fuchs,
    • HEMMT,
    • HMMVW,
    • Unimog,
    • Ural-4320,
    • 2.7t 4x4 Technical-F,
    • M88A1,
    • M901,
    • M577,
    • BRDM-2
  2. None of our military customers requested the new HE model.
  3. None of our military customers requested the new terrain engine.
  4. None of our military customer directly requested the new AI; like everybody else they had isolated issues with behavior in specific situations, but it was our decision to move away from the state machine approach with discrete behavioral rules.

 

These were all common projects/investments that eSim Games made completely autonomous. The idea that there's an "us" (PE users) vs. "them" (military customers) is corrosive, and absolutely not supported by the facts. Only the profits made with military contracts allowed us to work on the important issues. Without military contracts you would have no Personal Edition, or at least none past version 2.4 maybe. So can we please leave this debate behind us, once and for all.

A good list of "value add" there. :)

 

I'll certainly keep it for the next person who makes pointed comments about only military customers being accommodated, when most know that isn't the case at all.

All these projects make your product stronger. I hope your work will pay off in future military competitions.

In the video above at 10:47 and a bit later, it seems you can see the rounds in flight (indirect fire and Milan at least) in the map view?

 

Is this a Mission Editor only feature?

It's an option while Testing as mission, and for Instructor Hosts. (Show menu.)

I cant wait to try!

 

I can see that the new terrain has more detail to it but what exactly has changed? How will be the process of converting "legacy" maps to the new engine? Will Pro PE user be able to do it?

Cheers

Yes, you can convert maps...but it need several minutes processing for each map. so the maps delivered on release (some 30 GB??) will save a lot of time
