Congratulation Mike

 

You may wonder why I would, as out of the blue, congrat you? Well there is a reason for this.

I myself play STEELBEAST Pro PE under name Kelvin Ice and been doing that since, I think 1999 or 2000. I know you from there and I write this as you wrote you playing it. Making it ok I mention this.

 

@Rasa

You have a great recruit in Mike. A most loyal community person which posts I have had the enjoyment reading in the Steelbeast Forum that I follow passively.

Craig,

 

thankyou for your kind comments.   I enjoy Steel Beasts, even if I’m a very average vehicle commander.   My heart has always been in Infantry and I misuse Steel Beasts to try and develop Infantry scenarios.   I look forward to campaigning with you again !!

Mike

Thankyou for your selection of me to join your unit.   I look forward to learning Arma skills and I contributing where I can.  My days of raiding and “yomping” are in the distant rear vision mirror but I was impressed by what I saw and look forward to joining you all. 

 

Mike

Hey Mike

 

Sorry Mike but there will be no campaigning for you and me. I did not made the cut. Sad. Well I wish you the best of times with VOLCBAT. I spent over 20 years in the infantry and as a Platoon commander as you. I also have had the time of judging the ARMA3's credibility as a land war simulator. With it I say "get into it". With the mod available the only lacking is the real life situation awareness. So as you rack up time in ARMA3 you will find it a good platform for developing and test combat tactics as you wrote you look for. It has a limit to what size of troops it can handle before the mentioned situation awareness deficiency make the experience negative. I make scenarios up to company size red, two platoons blue. Larger than that and the goal of the scenarios are hard to reach due to the speed at what the simulation let you handle battlefield executions (at least 3 times the normal speed - All in all there is never time for true realistic reaction, action and feedback). I have used better systems for that but not in civilian use.

 

You have my Steam account KelvinIce. If you like to discuss the creation of aspects of ARMA3 please give me a notice.

 

The very best and take care of near and dear in the times we all are at. We all need to think ahead and on eachother.

Best Regard

Craig Cole
