zGuba added a comment to T64016: Bullet speed.

The video is great but I'd rather see ballistics tables like this:

I did some more calcs. All are approximates of course, but shouldn't be worse than reality as I'm simply connecting the dots.

Time at 300 yards: ~ 0.4 seconds
Speed at 300 yards: ~ 433 m/s
Speed at 500 yards: ~ 295 m/s
Average speed: ~ 364 m/s

200 y = 182.88 m
182.88 m / 364 m/s = ~ 0.5 s (very roughly)

Added 0.4 TTF to 300 yards, it turns out that if your rifle features small muzzle velocity you should be satisfied with 0.9s time to flight to 500 yards. However if you shoot same round with longer barrel, it will reach target faster.

Remember weapon I refer to has a bit shorter barrel, the muzzle velocity is 883 m/s, not 1000 m/s!

Do you realize that 5.56x45 shot with MV of 2900 fps / 883 mps loses almost half of its velocity after 300 yards? Average speed on this distance is about 660 m/s then. It will take ~ 0.4 sec to hit target at this distance. So when firing at man sprinting 7 m/s sideways to you you'll need to put ~ 3 m correction ahead of him.

The video is kinda wrong, you should rather register when the hit occured, not when man visibly collapsed.

We not only need ability to turn ragdoll on. We also need to be able to apply force to any bone of the ragdoll, to simulate bullet impacts realistically.

For more realistic missile speeds in A2 please try Arma 2 Beta patches with Community Config Project.

For A3... well, guess we'll see.

Actually driver knows where he intends to steer, and this is how OFP steering worked. Getting it back, at least optionally, would improve it a lot.

@Scorpion, it's neither true, realistic nor natural.

zGuba added a comment to T58810: [Feature request] Separate mouse sensitivity setting for vehicles.

My suggestion is mouse and joystick should allow immediate control over steering direction.

Please also try changes in vehicle steering done in Arma2 OA:

[89086] Experimental: A different way to handle mouse steering is implemented for cars, tanks, boats and bikes.
