Wanted: Test of Metal

Recommended Posts

The original SB had a Gary Owen designed map named "Test of Metal" with many variations. I seem to remember it was updated for SB PROpe but wasn't playable for incompatible terrain reasons(?).

Anyone have it? It is not a stock PROpe map. I don't have the original Steel Beasts on my computer anymore.

We used to play that map a lot. Haven't seen it in years. It's a good map for 4 players.

"Between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the gleaming cities, and the years of the rise of the Sons of Aryas," Dewman ran a tournament. Test of Metal was one of the two tournament scenarios; my favorite of the two. I did not write it, I just played it often.

Here it is in one of its (original, I think) forms:

That was fast! Thanks for clearing up the lineage of that map.

I'm going to try it out now, and hopefully w/ some of the guys this week.

Flash Traffic was written by G.S. McAmis if I'm not mistaken. And I do believe that it is password protected. Updating it is necessary as there were several river crossings that would need to be converted into bridges.

Ok, I think it might have worked. I was able to extract the map and place bridges. I don't have the password, so I couldn't adjust the Red pathing, but it seems to work alright with the bridges.

This was a G.S. McAmis map. He loved to use copious amounts of ditches, which can get weird in Pro PE ---- just saying. I ain't taking out none of the ditches, that would just be wrong.

Anyway, no guarantees.

If you want it done right, you'll need a fifth-gallon of Tennessee whisky, a large squirrel, a square foot of blue and green tartan, a PRC-77 with battery; and if you're really lucky, you might get GS to reply to the call sign, R8J69.
