Description

Problem: There is no rifle optic / Titan launcher with Night Vision only (and without Thermal Vision)

This is a problem in PVP missions where we try to avoid 'god mode' equipment for better fun (despite the lack of 'realism').

Suggestions:

  • add infantry/sniper rifle optic with Night Vision only (no Thermal Vision)
  • add Titan launchers with Night Vision only (no Thermal Vision)

OR

  • add some kind of command or parameter to disable Thermal Vision capabilities on optics and titan launchers

OR

  • a command that when it is applied to the unit (AI or player), that unit is not able to switch to Thermal Vision anymore

There is a similar problem with drones (darter, greyhawk, stomper, static autonomous mg/gl, etc). If I disable Thermal Vision on these (with disableTIEquipment command) I no longer have access to Night Vision capability.

Try "optic_NVS".

  • add some kind of command or parameter to disable Thermal Vision capabilities on optics and titan launchers
  • a command that when it is applied to the unit (AI or player), that unit is not able to switch to Thermal Vision anymore

Agreed, but make a separate ticket.

Thanks for optic_NVS idea. When I checked this (during daytime) I had a completely white screen and thought was bugged.

I don't see the point of creating 2 additional tickets since for me there is only one problem with multiple causes. I think putting it all together makes the problem clearer.

Read the How to guide (http://feedback.arma3.com/how-to-user.html.html). It says to report one issue/request per ticket only.

I've read that guide and there is nothing said about reporting one issue/request per ticket only.

Anyways I consider this to be the case here since I am describing only one issue: there is no general 'switch' to turn off TI on all game elements (vehicles, optics, weapons, etc).

no.

this is arma, in real life people wont add NV to optics without thermal imagenry

Yes, they will if they can't afford TI Optics. The US currently doesn't even have optics on the everyday Humvee, it's just a standard Browning .50. Some MRAPs do though (troop carriers, command M-ATV's, etc.). Anyway, there is already a NV scope in game, no thermals or anything. And if the enemy has thermals and you don't, employ some guerilla warfare :D sometimes more fun than trying to directly face off on an advanced enemy (put down some IEDs, set an ambush, steal the enemy thermal optics)

"no.

-yes.

though in real life, people wont play with you anyway...

i love you too, fabio
