    I am a fan of tank sims and was playing SABOW for awhile now and decided to check out Steel Fury since i heard
    there is a active modding community though the version of SABOW i have is the newer on not considered the boxed
    version since it doesn't have much or any mods for it. I do love the WW2 tanks though and i thought hey this seems fun and i can
    mod it to have more tanks heck yes. Very Happy

    Ok first you need to do the training missions. In the game menu you will see driving and shooting tutorial missions. That would be  s a start to familiarise yourself with how the sim operates. Then move on to the campaigns or single missions. As far as using different tanks you will get trhat in the various campaigns, single missions and mission packs that come with STA 1..0. Do you have the game packs GMP 1, 2 and 3 downloaded, installed and enabled in the JSGME?

    I have them downloaded and enabled so far i don't see them in the menu at all.
    Could it be because i have the English version of the game??

    **i fixed it i had my mod load order wrong.

    I noticed this issue when i'm playing i want my driver to stop the tank he wont listen or does a short stop.

    What key do press? Are you playing the role of the commander? The stop key is Q.

    Hi, rygaku
    U're welcome! cheers
    Modding SF it's a very interesting thing. Especially - creating new maps and missions. I've to note - STA mod already has many tanks (of course, it doesn't has all of them), thus new missions would be more preferable and appreciated by Community.
    Usually, the necessity of the new tanks exists only due to the mission requirements. I.e. u want to make the mission for the GBR and u need APC M3 equipped with 75mm gun.


    Or u've idea to make the mission kinda chasing/racing. It does u need to make the new appropriate map and a new car, like GAZ M1. Let's say, it'll be smth. like - user has Kubelwaggen equipped with MG and he has to chase/seek and destroy the Soviet HQ car with important document or VIP.

    As my point - making the model just for the modeling itself it's not a development, though it's a very interesting and exiting thing, when u'll see a personal 3D model in the game with a "live" status and ready for the action.

    STA is really fun some of the tanks however their recitals are messed up if you swap to third person the tank is aiming backwards even when you are aiming its pointed forward. I think its a camera issue or i didn't download the fix.

    Aiming backwards??? Not sure what you mean by that? Which tank are you talking about? The KV -1? If it's the case just press the O key and you gunsight will be lined up with the gun again. It's because in early Soviet tanks the commander was also the loader so when you change position it reflects the commander switching seats.

    i think it could be that because i had that issue with the IS2 and the ISU tanks on some missions.
