I would like it to return an array of arrays containing every possible vehicle turret — and that includes driver's turret.

My friend, playing as a spotter, couldn't see the bulletholes and dust effects I made while shooting the 2 furthest shots, but I could see them clearly.
He has seen the nearest bullethole and dust effect kick in after hit though.

Arkhir added a comment to T82254: K-40 UAV ATGM Laser Pointer/Missile Impact Point off by 10 Meters.

I think it has something to do with speeds or angles. Did you try to put the UAV on loiter orbit Adam? It might not be the case when flying straight towards the target.

Missile seems to skip to the right or left usually, the error is very small though 5-10m, negligible for most cases.

I don't know if laser skipping has to do something with it, since you can launch these missiles without laser and they still guide in the middle of crosshair.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EwQYQB8sfM

Laser quirks on the building; actual laser is very far off the crosshair.

May 10 2016, 10:56 AM · Arma 3
Arkhir added a comment to T82253: Turn left/right - helicopters vs planes.

Hi. Excuse me if I worded myself poorly; there is no problem with rebinding them.

The issue is the fact that deleting them from "Helicopter Controls" tab also deletes them from "Plane Controls" tab, which shouldn't be the case since some of the other controls are differentiated.

Examples of proper differentiation between plane and helicopter controls:
(helicopter / airplane)
Cyclic forward / Nose down
Cyclic backward / Nose up
Cyclic left / Bank left
Cyclic right / Bank right
Collective raise / Increase thrust
Collective lower / Decrease thrust

Examples of no differentiation in controls:
Right pedal / Right pedal
Left pedal / Left pedal
Right turn / Right turn
Left turn / Left turn

I hope you understand what's the matter now.

While it was a big problem for me, I managed to find a workaround for this by just unbinding "turn left" completely, and binding my mouse to bank in airplane. Since cyclic controls and bank/pitch controls are different - it is perfectly possible to achieve what I want.
I guess you can close it, since it's possible to have this workaround I just mentioned.

Sorry I took your time - I should think about it earlier.

Server was last updated 24/4/15. I believe it's the latest version. I've just read that the issue happens with php generated squad .xml's.

We host our own squad.xml on our website, so that's why it might be working.

Arkhir added a comment to T78269: TankX simulation vehicles unable to move in water.

How is that even (not)working? I understand it might be complicated to fix an issue like that, but it seems to be a quite basic feature.

Myself, I have never made any vehicle for A3, but I tried to reproduce using different vehicles from other mods.

RHS:USAF has M113 which is tracked and also can move in water. I'm not sure if that's external work-around, or if they got it to work somehow, but I thought it might be a valuable input.
I noticed it sometimes bugs out though and just stops, only being able to float, unable to move, but it doesn't sound like the issue described.

Yup, most of the stuff the ticket is about is probably not about vision, but rather weird bugs with sound/knowsAbout parameter.

May 10 2016, 7:52 AM · Arma 3
Arkhir added a comment to T76131: AI vision not being affected by enviromental changes / obstacles / vegetation.

Cannot reproduce any of the mentioned. Perhaps you're playing on faulty terrain, using bad LOD models for the vegetation, or poorly configured ground surfaces.

AI seems to notice me easier on the concrete/streets and worse in vegetation. Dense grass helps for stealth.

AI is blind in comparison to me when it comes to looking through bushes. AI unit definitely did not see me through it, while I could see his silhouette clearly and I could easily identify the uniform (we were about 5 meters apart, bush inbetween of us), but he just stood there, until he heared me moving, then after a while of AI's confusion I recieved fire.

I could effectively hide in the fog until I clearly saw AI silhouette, he started shooting at me when I got a little bit closer.

I noticed some different flaws though, notably with AI hearing:

It's worth to mention that the AI units saw me through vast amounts of fog after being initially detected.
Before the detection their visibility seemed to be influenced heavily by fog. Even if they "saw" me they couldn't identify -- so they didn't shoot.
After they knewAbout me, they started shooting through the fog. They also had some echolocating capabilities, being able to shoot over 50-70 meters with 20m visibility, using just the sounds I made.

There is also a bug with their hearing, regarding player turning, but it's already acknowledged and worked on.

Arkhir added a comment to T75721: Campaign. Polish translation issues.

Damnit, sorry for being such a messy error reporter and not doing the proper job first time.
I took some more time to go through the items in VR now and here's some more funny-sounding stuff I found:

  1. CSAT (tan) items all have translation errors.

The items are translated as "ASP-1 Kir (podpalany)", "Cyrus (podpalany)", "Navid (podpalany)", "Dwójnóg (podpalany)" and "Kahila (podpalana)";
Podpalany/a literally translates to "lit on fire"/"torched"/"smoked", it's sometimes also used to describe reddish-brown horses, it's not common to see it as a color, especially when talking about weapons.

Tan, as a coulor, should be translated to "jasnobrązowy", so we'd have Kir, Navid and Cyrus (jasnobrązowy), and Kahila (jasnobrązowa).
If this translation is too long for some reason, you can go with "beżowy" and "beżowa".

Both of these colours are valid translations of "tan" and would suit better than the current one.

  1. Starter pistol. "Pistolecie startowym" is not a valid translation, as it literally means "starter pistol", as in "to think about starter pistol"/"Myśleć o pistolecie startowym", it's not the correct form of the noun and the following adjective.

Correct noun+adjective would be "Pistolet startowy". As in "I see a starter pistol"/"Widzę pistolet startowy".

  1. "Mundur dowódcy strzelnicy" - not the most correct translation of "rangemaster uniform". I propose "Mundur instruktora strzeleckiego". The first one means "Range commander uniform", second one makes more sense as it means "Shooting instructor uniform", which is natural sounding and correct equivalent, it's also consistent with "rangemaster headset" polish translation.
  1. GA Carrier Lite (Digi) and Carrier Lite (Black) are for some reason translated to "Kabura" which means "(pistol) holster".

"Lekka kamizelka GA (digi)" and "Lekka kamizelka (czarna)" are better equivalents, consistent with translations of other, similar vests.

  1. CTRG abbreviation in both CTRG vest variants is changed to CRTB in polish localization for some reason.
  1. "Składany wyrzutnia moździerza MK6" has incorrect adjective form in it. Should be "Składana wyrzutnia moździerza MK6", or "Składany moździerz MK6". Second one is consistent with HMG and GMG translations, first one is less natural sounding but consistent with Titan launcher translations.
  1. Every single "Rozłożony" in static weapons (GMG and HMG) means "deployed", and it refers to undeployed weapon carried in the backpack. Should be "Złożony". Means "Folded".
  1. Cap (Press) should be "Czapka (prasa)" instead of "(naciśnięcie)". I don't know how I could miss it earlier, as it's the funniest error we've noticed with our friends.
  1. Cap (Olive, Headset) should be "Czapka (oliwkowa, headset)" or "(oliwkowa, mikrofon)" or "(oliwkowa, zestaw słuchawkowy)". The last one is most formal and you don't hear it in common speech very often, it's something you'd read in polish section of the headset manual :)

We usually don't translate "headset" when refering to it, so I think the 1st translation is the most accurate and natural.

Currently the translation is (oliwkowa, głowa) which literally means (olive, head). As in body part.

I think these are the most cringe-inducing errors I could find, rest is generally OK. I'm sorry if I missed something, I tried to be more accurate.

And thank you for constantly improving the game :)

Arkhir added a comment to T75721: Campaign. Polish translation issues.

I'll avoid littering the tracker with a new ticket -- several items have localization errors as well.

For example:
Vest (press) is translated to Kamizelka (naciśnięie) instead of Kamizelka (prasa).

"naciśnięcie" means "press" as in the act of pressing something.
"prasa" means "press" as in press release.
