Make AI team radio more ACRE(ish)
Reviewed, LowPublic

Description

When you are playing with an AI team they will use the radio a lot to confirm orders and call out enemy positions etc. However, just like in ArmA2 there is almost no distortion on the radio. AI team units that are 50+ meters away will sound like if they are close by. The only radio(ish) sound you hear when the AI communicates (and vice versa) is a little 'beep' sound other then that you hear normal undistorted voices.

I really like to see the more ACRE sound being used so that I actually have the feeling that I and the AI are talking through the radio instead of the feeling that they are standing next to me while they are not. And maybe if possible also increase the distortion the further they are away from you just like in ACRE. So if it's possible (no doubt it is) add a distortion filter on top of the AI radio voices that works dynamically with the distance to where the player is, longer distance = more distortion, close distance = less distortion.

2035 people........

I HATE TO USE HIGH-CAPS RAGE, BUT SERIOUSLY, THIS IS NOT 2012, MOST OF THE EQUIPMENT ON THE 2035 IS GONNA BE BETTER, STOP COMPLAINING ABOUT THESE THINGS.

You disqualified yourself by using caps. And big deal that it represents military of 20 years from now, it is about immersion. As you can see ArmA 3 still contains radio's and not a headset holographic video screen shining in your right eye to communicate. So ACRE(ish) sounds will still be realistic also in 2035.

LOL if you think most militaries are going to bother with/get funded and greenlit to change already working techsystems in the next few decades.

I dont meant using something else than radios, i mean the range, with new tech comes better range and less distortion, therefore, its very unlikely that this is even realistic, in WWII you would need a large radius radio just to call a squad 500 meters from you

What do you mean "LARGE RADIUS RADIO"? What in gods name is that?

Are you saying the quality of a Radio is defined by the Radius of the Equipment? e.g if the Equipment is bigger it will reach further?

Look...........Just...........Read up on the Physics of Radio....Infact don't bother - Just don't post anything about Radio's.

This suggest was processed by our team and will be looked into. We thank you for your feedback.

mwnciboo, no, i do what i want.....

All we hear is Radio ka ka
Radio goo goo
Radio ga ga

Radio blah blah
Radio what's new?
Radio, someone still loves you!

Yeah, well instead of doing what you want....Try and contribute to this game in a meaningful way. There are plenty of places on the net to type utter crap and do what you want - try 4Chan.

I know what you were trying to say earlier but you are using completely incorrect language and terms. A little bit of research goes a long way.

Radio's may get clearer in the future, they may not. It's fundamentally about Security and Encryption, things like QPRS distort the transmissions and will never be as clear as you speak on Skype or Face to Face.

Smart Phones could be used, but without Hardened Kernel Technology they won't be secure.

Active Frequency hopping, and modulation is the easiest and cheapest method currently and for the forseeable future.

So distortion on Radio Nets is here to stay, no big deal.

I think the new AI radio sound have improved, much better now. Gj BIS.
