To you maybe
These tickets aren't academic texts. ;)

Whether I put any smileys in of my choice has no bearing on whether the developers will even bother looking at it. If it gets upvotes that's enough for it to get recognition.

I will not entertain further discussion about this. Upvote if you want VTOLs, nuff said.

Yes, you don't experience twitching like you did in arma 2 unless you're drugged and your central nervous system is fooked.

And you use the word arcade to describe the new system. I don't get it, what's "arcade" about it and why is it a bad thing?

Also I think we can ask for more, doesn't mean we will get it, but if we tell them we want it, they might make it!

Might just be my own impression but the overly anal OCD-realism crowd seems to have quieted down lately so we just might get what we ask for :)

Goblinbutt added a comment to T79258: More vehicle interactions.

I kind of agree with you that towing would be nice. But only if we get some kind of extra towing specific truck to go with it for logical reasons(the suspension of disbelief gap is a bit too wide otherwise). You know those towing booms that AAA services use that hoist the front of the towed vehicle up and such.

I'm thinking that if you tow someone around with just a winch you will end up with two dinged up vehicles, one in the front and one in the back becuse there is nobody in the rear vehicle to engage the brakes. :3

I love the idea with transporting stuff like boxes by truck though, and I deffo think it should be implemented. I also hope they add sling loading functionality to ammoboxes and crates.

Goblinbutt added a comment to T78524: Collective neutral for advanced controls..

There is though. 50% of collective should=neutral.
It does not matter if things change in flight as that can be adjusted for with some wiggling.. the main issue I'm having is that you cannot use your wigglesticks to control collective in an intuitive way -- That is to have the throttle return to 50% or neutral lift as you release your stick in order to correspond with the neutral axis of the stick. It lets you know where it is without looking.

That way you don't have to constantly keep check on "how much is my throttle!?" during critical moments, you can just feel by the way you're moving if you're vectoring up or down too fast and adjust accordingly.

If you use a HOTAS setup or have a throttle device that doesn't reset to a neutral position automaticly you will not suffer this issue because you can feel where along the axis your throttle is. For Mouse and keyboard pilots there isn't much help to begin with.

I feel that analog pad users are crippled as it stands right now, and they don't have to be.

I feel that this is CRITICAL for anyone that flies with a 360pad or similar.

When you're seasoned enough you DO stop looking at your gauges much and fly "by the seat of your pants" so to speak, gauges are essentially a learning tool for how the aircraft handles.

I'd like you to consider that I want this to be an OPTION, not a replacement.

I would also ask you to consider how on earth this would decrease YOUR enjoyment of the game in any way, shape or form since you have the OPTION OF NOT BEING AFFECTED by it.
Does it bother you that other people have a nicer flying experience? Are you a jealous pilot? Is good piloting a prestige thing for you? Do you feel that your pride has been hurt if you accidentally crash?

Shouldn't be that way. Not at all.

Goblinbutt added a comment to T78524: Collective neutral for advanced controls..

I'd like to know the reasons behind the downvotes on this.
They make no sense.

Are you downvoting it because I play with a 360-pad or is it something else about my personality you don't like?

Because I have a hard time seeing why you wouldn't want the OPTION of a setting that makes things more intuitive. With emphasis on OPTION.

Goblinbutt added a comment to T77841: ETA and Distance Scale interface options..

I know it's not hard to guess in a broad sense how long travel time will take but there is something strangely fascinating about getting an accurate time quote and see it tick down in steady intervals.

The reason this is a feature request in the first place is because I am not looking for this as a script but as a global feature that is available to everyone including people who play on public servers.

As far as I know, running custom scripts gets you kicked and or banned or wont let you play on a server in the first place. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Goblinbutt added a comment to T77781: UAV - Darter - Armed variety..

Wait. So let me get this right. You're against it...because CoD has it? :S
At the same time you're telling us how easy it is to do.

So what, a developer spends whatever an "easy" amount of time scripting it, and a modeller takes an already existing model and adds a gun to it. Mind you the designs already exist and they don't have to come up with their own.

Add to that the fact that it's a resource that would be available to mission makers, and not an obligatory unit. Basicly if you don't like them, don't use them.

It should also be noted that bohemia put an armed UAV in one of the arma 2
expansions, which was a neat concept even if it was a bit crappy both in the model design and gun accuracy departments.

I'm a bit stumped by the initial response negativity of this feature request. As it would fit in perfectly with the game world and the time period it is set in. It is as if some people just don't want cool stuff because cool stuff is unrealistic, even when it isn't.

Okay, I did not know that.

I'd still like to have some sort of markings to help counter the staring-into-the-void feeling which in itself is a result of "unrealism" when it comes to peripheral vision which in itself is completely understandable because it's a game, not reality.

It wouldn't subtract anything from the experience unless you have some kind of OCD I'd think.

Goblinbutt added a comment to T74666: Flashlight is too weak.

It actually is pretty weak. Gun lights are suposed to be high lumen lights wich means that they can send beams quite a bit further than they do currently.
A 180 lumen flashlight can send a beam 100m no problem. Military "tactical" lights are rated at 220 lumen and up, the light is blinding. Though some may possibly have multiple settings...

The point is that it's very realistic to increase the light output but it's more a matter of gameplay balance wether or not to do so.

Frankly I don't think it matters as much that diff rifles have diff bullet trajectories, make it work with holdoffs so that you can actually choose to use it. The fun factor is more important.

But I get that this is one of those "oops I painted myself into a corner" situations. It could be tricky to solve or do anything about. I don't know.

Goblinbutt added a comment to T74436: New DMS scope useless because of impossibility for unzeroing.

I'd like to see a DMS scope with no zeroing too, making you use holdoffs. The fact that you can zero it at various ranges just confuses me because there's nothing you can use in the scope view to reference the ranges of the chevrons beyond the scale provided.

Goblinbutt added a comment to T74106: Female soldiers models should be available in the game.

Put them in because

*Variety is nice and wether or not women serve in the military in certain branches and/or roles and not others IRL is completely irrelevant since this is a game.

*All men do not automatically have an innate desire to play as a male character and all women do not have an innate desire to play as a woman. This is all individual choice and tastes.

So I think bohemia should get off their lazy butts and stop making excuses and put them in, or at least make steps to do so. Starting with some simple remeshing and retexturing. If you want, you can do mocap for a new skeleton at a later date for "genuine femaleness".

Goblinbutt added a comment to T71076: Night Sky is too boring.

Sure the possibility exists, and if someone does indeed claim to be from greece it's POSSIBLE that they are. It's just that we won't know that unless they prove it. They may just be using it as leverage to push their own agenda about how they want the night sky to look.

Personally though I think that the night sky does look a little bleak, but I think it's also kind of okay. I mean we're not after a night sky that looks like it does in skyrim with aurora borealis and such.

I live in Sweden in a city somewhere 2/3 down if you go from the north end. It's not northward enough for an aurora borealis. My impression of the night sky from the city is that you don't really see much of anything, that much is true. However my girlfriend used to live out in the countryside with her parents, a house in the middle of nowhere pretty much. And there was much less light pollution going on at night, and the difference between those nights and the ones from a city were basicly that you could see the stars without a problem, and not just a few bright ones, but a lot of them. There was no backglow of any colors however, those are things that just don't exist outside photos and aurora borealis.

I don't imagine it's any different anywhere else. Night is black and white.

The real question is if YOU know how the radar operates and how it gathers information in the context of ARMA.

Maybe it has FLIR that scans the environment for thermal signatures and visual imagery, lasers it and puts a blip on your "radar" ingame.

Many small creeks make a big river.
And it already has accurate ammo capacity because it's not a real gun no matter how much it may look like one or coincidentally have the same name as one.

@DemonMustang: I don't think it means what you think it means.
Balancing does not mean that you homogenize things, it simply means that in the big picture you make sure one faction for example does not have an unfair advantage over the other in the bigger picture. This means changing things on a smaller scale with individual guns in this case. Balancing is not about small scale equilibrium although that's where the changes are made.

This is a game, I don't care about "ultra-realism". As long as the game itself is balanced in a way that makes it fun to play. And setting the game it in the future really lends itself to that end.

Also to any buttclenching going on after reading that. Yes, arma is a game. It's not a simulator. It simulates certain aspects "in a way", such as ballistics, but it is not an actual simulator. For a simulator only experience have a look at VBS. Simulators are made to simulate things accurately, arma has never strived for that, it has always been pseudo-realism(wich is not to say that it is not advanced). And thank goodness for that.

If you obsess over realism you're missing out.
Enjoy your 9-round pistol.

increase RPM, also increase spread so you can actually hit something.

Goblinbutt added a comment to T68975: The Titan AT Launcher has a super locking system if you stay in the scope.

A well written ticket is no more valid than the point it makes.

Personally this is not a bug to me, it's a feature that doesn't offer any unfair advantages, only more chances for dynamic use of the weapon.

Goblinbutt added a comment to T67445: Helicopter pilot and copilot seats too loud, hampers voice chat or VON.

Even with today's technology you could sit in a helicopter and not even hear it. It's called active noise cancelling(do your own research). And yes, helicopter crews do use an intercom to communicate with each other, and there are often extra headsets for some of the passengers to jack into. The age of shouting really loud to communicate inside aircraft is gone and has been gone for ages now, save a few exceptions.

Making it so that you have to speak up to communicate with a pilot via radio is not realistic, it's stupid.

Reading how a lot of you are concerned about "realism" it's worthy of a sigh how uneducated some of you are on the subject of realism in the first place, or so it would appear.

Blah blah blah realism realism blah blah blah.

Just add an accuracy penalty to the AI when they're shot and be done with it.

This is not a "realistic wounds simulator". It's a milsim, it simulates "military things" in a broader sense and nothing in specific, that's what lets it be a well rounded GAME.

please no, too anal, leave it to ACEmod to be inefficient and "realistic".

Goblinbutt added a comment to T64788: Arrangable 3GL 3 round ammo.

This would require a new UI indicator so you could keep track of what order they're in and such, as well as a new mechanic for combining the different rounds.

This would be a significant undertaking to implement, I'm not voting up or down on this, but I think it's not a priority feature at all, back of the line.

Goblinbutt added a comment to T64666: Suppressors have an unrealistic deleterious effect on bullets.

The misconception here is that arma is a simulator when it is not. It's a pseudo realistic "mil-sim". But it is also a game, and as with any game there are going to have to be balancing. If you want to be detected less easily you are going to have to sacrifice something else. Likewise if an enemy is shooting at you and you can't hear them you want some extra time as a player to try to locate them.

I think this is something that the ACE community can work on. But for us normal players it's fine as it is. The only beef I have is that muzzle flash isn't removed on silenced guns, your gun still makes this glowy effect when you fire. But frankly I don't know if that's something that's realistic or not, just something I imagine isn't. Less of a balance issue, more of an aesthetics issue.

We don't need working parachutes, you can just land your wingsuit in a big pile of cardboard boxes like that guy on youtube did!

Also while not nessecarily commonplace for IRL applications, who cares. Wingsuits are awesome, and I'm a big advocate of awesome as well as fun.
