these are the main issues i start raging at a game :p

it's so extremely frustrating when you try a stealth approach against AI and at one point they suddenly all know exactly where you are.. only because a certain trigger has been switched...

nobody has seen you, no communication between them happened, but they all start firing at you in an instant.

please fix this before release it's a very important issue and the game over all feels much better compared to Arma 2 / OpFp

Can you provide a repro mission? What type of explosives, etc?

This was a problem in A2OA, but it was fixed. I cannot reproduce it in A3 via the old repro method. See:

However, someone has just recently reported the same problem:

I do have this problem too. Stealth Approach the Back of a base to blow up the objective/targets. Suddenly all the AI knows where the hell I am... Please Fix This !

I was playing the GLT mod as Opfor. Stop the Blufor convoy, I used a mixture of Slam, claymore, and large satchel charges, I must have been about a 100 meters away when I set it off.

I'm still unable to reproduce, although I have only tested remotely detonated explosives and claymores.

I tried reproducing it. With manual detonates and mines. They didn't know were I was and just back off.
