I am curious since I am getting re-rigged for sim ball this month. What does everyone carry on the field with them? How many pods/mags? What kind of tools knife/leatherman/squeege/map/etc.? How big a tank do you use? Does anyone take any food out with them during a scenario game energy bars, etc.?
Any helpful info or comments would be appreciated on your game loadout.

My current plan for scenario play would be 6 Milsig mags, 2-4 100 rd pods, 1 Tib 8 with 2 extra mags, spare co2's, remote tank, and a squeege.

Your current scenario kit planned is pretty much all you need. Maybe a camo uniform and your set to go.

I agree with Halo, your loadout sounds great. Bringing food or power bars would depend on how big the game is and how long it is between rounds. If you rounds of play are under an hour I wouldn't be to concerned with carring food out with you onto the field.

It depends on the length of the game to be honest. In a big game

8 mags
1 full 68ci 4500psi HPA tank.
1 TAG with 1 mag
200 extra rnds
Snacks
Tools
water

I shot maybe 500 rounds during an entire weekend of PB.

10 round tubes are great for loading the milsig mags. I generally carry 100 rounds of extra paint that way.

I usually take all my gear to the field, solely for the purpose of having it on hand in cases of equipment failure. This works well if you have good portability storage devices for the gear.

What's been said covers anything I could have added there. Mostly though, it depends on how long you're actually in the field, fully-geared and ready to rock. So, your set-up sounds good. However, a multi-tool is a great thing to have and carry into the field. And, I think we covered this in another thread, a dedicated sharp, pointy thing is always good to have.

Also, though not as important now as in the summer - hydration! Be it by a flask, a canteen, or a Camelbak (or one of the many similar items,) water (or similar substance,) is wonderful.

Also, look into a small towel/microfiber cloth and a small 'spritzer' bottle for goggles. Really small and portable, but really useful. No explanation needed. :)

I've been reconsidering my kit options. At fulda I shot like 2 cases, which is over double any game previous, and that doesn't include Platoon Leader.

So I'm thinking my new kit will consist of a pistol, three loaded mags, all on a suspender kit under a sportcoat (a cheap one, c'mon now)

That or my A5 in MP5K config, with a spare air.

But what you really need is a kilt, a PGP, and ba-ba-ba-baallls of steel.

Marlboro Lights in a hard Pack...and 2 lighters.

Also, I play like I fight, so my paintball rig has armor plates (at 30 extra pounds), hydropack, tools, flashlights, strobes, IR patches, pens, sharpies, etc. Some my guys even wear backpacks with extra paint and air.

Yeah, I saw Bishop's set up at Fulda. He was running like ten or twleve pods and two HPA tanks that I saw and those might have just been his spares... I'd never make it past the first base with a load like that.

two 3x140rd pod holders
two MOLLE compatible Co2/HPA Tank Holders (horizontal & vertical)
MOLLE Leg Rig
3 Co2 Tanks (16, 20 and 24)
2 HPA Tanks (PE 72/3000 & Crossfire 68/4500)
one Remote Line
3 JT Goggles (Flex 8 is my newest and favorite)
two Hoppers for the two Warp Feeds
a dozen Batteries
2 or 3 Cases of Karnage Paint
A bag of Lint Free Towels
3 Markers (ABT, AKA5, Spyder MR1)

And of course extra clothing, dont want the interior of my truck smellin like last week's laundry.
