Please make realistic vehicle damage system
Acknowledged, WishlistPublic

Description

I would count into endless bad and unrealistic, but seriously, its time to change that, lets make this game speciall, lets give pleayers what they deserve when buying SIMULATOR. My Idea is about damage in vehicles;

  • WHEELS DAMAGE - totally mistake righ now since OFP and can be asly change making bigger immersion on player - Wheels should not dsapear when damaged to look like burneed wheel. There should be perced tire with holes from rounds, or best, effect of flat tire while driving, turning after some time to empry wheel (no tire, but not burned wheel).
  • EXPLOSIONS - as mentioned before in some ticket, cars should not explode after shooting woth non burning or HE amunition, it will make possible cover from enemy fire behind the car and again it will make bigger immersion.
  • ROUNDHOLES ON VEHICLES - again same effect from ARMA 1. This should be applied ASAP - realistic roundholes in metal at least on vehicles. Same could be done with dust, blood etc. Ammount of this effects should be adjustable in options.

ALL THIS OPTIONS GUARATINE BETTER IMMERSION, TOGETHER WITH MY PREVIOUS FETURE REQUEST, YOU CAN DO SOMETHING DEFINETLY BETTER THAN IT IS NOW, PLEASE COLLECT THIS REQIESTS, REPORT IT TO DEVELOPERS, AND MAKE ARMA BETTER GAME, BETTER SIMULATION. TANOA SERIOUSLY CAN WAIT, WE GOT HOUNDRETS ISLAND FROM MODDERS COMMUNITY.

Who voted it down? Dont you wanna make this game special or at give features on same level as graphic engine? Graphic gives you much, but it isnt used fully

Hey there ! I completely agree with you, Arma is a wonderful game, and I really love it, and trust me I would love to see Arma with a physic engine like Euphoria, used in Grand Theft Auto series. But you know, Bohemia is not making it on purpose, they are completely aware that a lot of stuff are not as realistic as they could be, and if they are the way they are now, that's for sure because they can't make it another way.
First because you can't focus on everything, making an engine like Euphoria or the one used in BeamNG is fucking hard and takes a lot of time and money. They have to focus on the simulated physics, like bullets, infantry damage, ammunition used, side of impact, wind, and a lot of other things that i'm even not aware of !

Trust me, I've done a little of programmation myself, and players don't know how each little invisible thing of the game has his proper line of code. What the customer sees is only the content, so he can complain on why there are not many weapons or vehicles, but a program is much more complicated and detains so much more information than only visual content.

Second, and I think that's the real big deal why the physics are not as beautiful as for exemple GTA physics, (GTA car crashes are not realistic at all, but are pleasant to the eye, a car in real life would be crushed like an aluminium can) because Arma the way it is now take already a fucking lot of GPU and CPU power, because Altis is super huge and rendered in real time for all the players on the map, and textures are way more High Definition than other games. Integrating a new physic engine would burn most of players GPU cards nowadays and it would result in an even more laggy game with even more desync issues, and that's not what we want.
I think that Bohemia matter number 1 at the moment is multiplayer stability and fluidity, and surely a lot of their acutal physic engine bugs, no offense ^^.

Sorry for this huge post, just know that i upvoted your request, because I agree with you, I would really like to see a wonderful realistic Arma, in both terms of non seen physics like bullets and visual physics like vehicles crashes, but I think Bohemia is really doing their best, and they are not a huge team like most of the blockbusters video games teams, so they focus on the simulation, and not always on the visual physics. Though I think not making a vehcile explode by simple bullets is not really hard to do and i'm sure they will add this in future updates ! =)

Cheers !

+1 for Shurilex

It would be an option that the car would stay in a 99% damage state and only explode when it gets hit by at or something else. Should be a possible solution.

+1 especially for popped tires instead of burned rims.

And helicopters not exploding if they flip would be great...

OK, nice to see agrre between players but there is one thing @Shurilex - Arma is not using our PC so much as you writed. It eat half of power of our PC, and not using fully potential of machines. CPU and GPU is 60%, while in gta is about 90% (GTA V is runing much smoother). I know coding is hard, but effects like this tires, and turning vehicle in wreck is simply adding 15 or 20 lines of text (or even less). Bulletholes on vehicles is simply change in base line (change count from 6 or 8 [now 8 its full bulletholes on vehicle if i remember] to 20 or 30, render distance to 100 or less, [add option to change it in video options] and texture using to some new and here you go). Off course you can ask me, why i dont did that if this is so simple - beacuse i think Arma 3 should be better playable without mods.

Arma 3 is not perfect at the point of using your system.Another point is when you ,like you say, know how to fix or improve this,why you dont make a mod and give the source to bohemia so they can optimize and implement it in to vanilla. Be a part of the community and do us a favor.

"Who voted it down?" only demented man, or Battlefield or COD fan/

100 times UPVOTED!

I cant mod it by myself, i know how it work, but i never created any mod. More - i've got renovation at my house at 40 Celsius degrees, in the sun, almost 24/h, so i'm unable to turn on my PC when i want to. Now i've got break beacuse materials is finished and my brother went to shop to buy more...
