A few of us here have it. But I feel we haven’t forayed into the funbox of this little game.
I want to contact some of my steel beast buddies and see if they have a premade (or could make a mission) in a not too difficult setting for a foray into tanking. ( unfortunately I have not spent much time in the SB mission editor)
Ideally it is to have an element of scouting, manoeuvring, then possibly a final assualt point against a not too difficult enemy with us initially starting with either a single vehicle each or a couple of vehicles each depending on peoples level of ability. Perhaps, there will be a pool of vehicles for us to take if you splat or kill your vehicle early.
Mission is designed to be run with a good look at the briefing page to plan tactics and show those not converse with it the power of the map pre briefing. Then to run at a steady pace to allow for thinking/coordination time for new guys not to feel overwhelmed. Basically take it slow, there is an Aussie with beers in the group.
(happy to take help in any way shape or form from anyone that can provide missions or contacts).
So to try and gauge interest and some parameters for me to possibly follow up on… I need to know the following.
Name of interested party
Your preferred vehicles
How many vehicles you are happy running at a time.
Best time for you in UTC (because I am too lazy to convert).
Oh wow…I have no idea. I’ve always thought the Bradley was kind of cool though.
Totally unpredictable since my schedule bounces between night shifts and day shifts. Generally though I’m not able to play much from 5PM to 11PM due to family stuff (after 11PM tends to be best when I’m on night shift…so after 0400UTC…not super convenient for you Europeans…lol…)
Back when I was actively playing, the 78 Easting scenario (cant remember if it was included or custom, probably custom) was good for training and not too difficult for a newb to run a platoon. There is also some good scout platoon action in the opening. Enough shooting for everyone and if you play it as close to the actual engagement as possible, a chance to get popped if you are not methodical and don’t have good SA. Forget about anything remotely similar to Fulda Gap, which can be a meat grinder.
So get your smelly butts updated. If any are interested I will be willing to throw up some quick missions to test player connectivity.
I have downloaded some easy (tutorial) missions and have some old missions from the old VU days. Going to need to play test some of these to see if anything is broken with the upgrades.
Anywho, give me a shout if even remotely interested as it would be good to test any problems with connecting to a server (as this would be the first thing we need to sort out).
Tanks for reading. And Tanks to the guys in the SB community for helping !!
