PLEASE TAKE TIME TO READ
ARMA need to progress on the Wounding System which is actually not realistic at all. And no SIMULATION without realistics things. According from the player choice, and with problems of ethics in different country, we need to be able to choose a much more Realistic Wounding System. Many WAR games which are really more ARCADE than ARMA got better wounds visually, and ARMA is a SIMULATION and has to stay like that, but is less realistic for wounds. So I suggest different level of wounds to improve ARMA in the way that it has to be, a REALISTIC SIMULATION. For countries where gore is a problem, the solution is to ACTIVATE an extented option for Wounds to enhance the capabilities from STEAM or BI website, they can know where is the player so no problem, maybe with a parental code. It's really need to be done as it was expected from ARMA since many years. To see some ARCADE games more realistics than ARMA on some points is disappointing. I RESPECT those who don't want this feature because of gore things, but for many others players who like ARMA to really SIMULATE WAR and have UNREALISTICS WOUNDS it's not possible. No WAR SIMULATION without REALISTICS WOUNDS, and BI claims for " THE ULTIMATE MILITARY SIMULATION", ARMA 3 "THIS IS WAR". In MP like it is actually, you can see clearly medics ( not serious people ) who just want to have the better skill always away instead of doing their job. Medic could be a really important in a team, and with a incapacited soldier and no just a dead body, a new mission, to defend the team member against the enemies, before than a medevac arrives.
There's no mad people who only like to see death or horror but it's like that, SIMULATE THE REALITY, it's not REAL, and they like ARMA for SIMULATION and not as an ARCADE game. VBS the MILITARY version has this feature, but again anothers WAR games more ARCADE than ARMA got better wounds visually, it's not just a MILITARY usage. This game is for adults, or it has to be with the enhanced wounding system ( parental code ). Really need to be present in VANILLA version, not as a mod very buggy. It's not gore for GORE but for REALISM.
To comply with everybody, I suggest 3 Levels for the Wounding System:
In the main game:
1- Realistic Blood Loss : a enhance System of Blood, more realistic with the loss of blood when wounded. Like actually in A3 can set blood ON or OFF.
In the extended option for Wounds:
2- Realistics Wounds : a more realistic Wounding System with realistics Blood Splatters and a more accurate Medic System, with Level 1; realistics wounds : hitpoint detection of vitals organs and skeleton for bones break, burns, dismemberment, decapitation and more... Like in real life, not ARCADE.
3- Realistics Medic : a more realistic Medic System, with Level 1 an 2; a much more accurate system to treat injuried soldiers.
See ticket 0003002 for Realistic Wounding System. http://feedback.arma3.com/view.php?id=3002
SP : set as you want, need to ACTIVATE extended options for Wounds if you want it.
MP : chose servers with content you want. Need to ACTIVATE extended options for Wounds to join a server with an extended option for Wounds.
It´s the only way to make everybody happy! Like with difficulty settings, really need Wounds settings.
I love ARMA 3 so PLEASE BI do your best to do it, to really have THE ULTIMATE MILITARY SIMULATION. Or at least give us the opportunity with a DLC.
