IlluminousOne added a comment to T78804: Weapon Inertia: freeaim issue.

That's sensible I guess. 'Freeaim' means you only move the weapon but not your body. Weapon inertia results from - let's say - heavy movements of your body.

IlluminousOne added a comment to T77674: 3D editor DLC.

There is no functional (!) 3D-editor in the game. Developers use 2D-editor only. Development and implementation of 3D-editor is work in progress and planned as expansion, not as DLC.
That means: First are DLCs to come, later Arma3 as platform will be upgraded (including 3D-editor).

+1
" - Have some radio contact between Kerry and the base! This would allow Kerry to ask what tasks need to be done on the field (ask and be told about a random task), and would allow Kerry to radio when approaching an area asking if he needs to look out for anything (instead of automatically knowing about it). Also allow Kerry to phone home via supports when he completes a task, giving the player feedback for his actions."

Very nice idea.

Thank you for that fix. :-) Your campaign improvements especially in context with patrol missions are just awesome and very well thought out.

Remaining/ arisen problems (found in Borus hub):
#.01
Headgear and glasses (on head) are not transferred but replaced by randomly generated ones.
#.02
MX-black variants are replaced by No-black variants.

IlluminousOne added a comment to T75246: Equipment gathered from Side missions is not being added/Saved.

I reported:
"This problem is only present, if sidemissions are absolved without a squad."

That means:
If I start (and later finish) a side mission WITH my patrol team, everything works as intended. The problem occurs ONLY in side missions that I started (and later finished) WITHOUT my patrol team. So especially in 'Survive' every weapon stored in my Quad will not transfer to armory hub.

IlluminousOne added a comment to T71319: We need refined control of stance adjustments (here: especially for sidestep)..

The difference between the 'actual sidestep' and 'toggle sidestep' is explained in description above. Here in short again.
At the moment:
Ctrl+D leads to sidestep right... and after that
Ctrl+A leads to normal stance.
(Compare this to 'lean':
2xE leads to lean right... and after that
// 2xE leads to normal stance.)

Toggle behaviour would be:
Ctrl+D leads to sidestep right... and after that
Ctrl+D leads to normal stance.
... so you can switch your sidestep on and off just as you do it with lean.
The contrarotating concept is very obvious in the 'Firing drills' when you want to lean and make a sidestep and after that you want to get in normal stance.

(... and by the way - I'm German... :-) )

May 10 2016, 5:42 AM · Arma 3
IlluminousOne added a comment to T71319: We need refined control of stance adjustments (here: especially for sidestep)..

Personally, I prefer this key binding:
E - Toggle sidestep right
2xE - Toggle lean right

Key bindings can be customized, example:
E - temporarily lean right
2xE - toggle lean right
Ctrl+D - toggle sidestep right
(Be aware: TOGGLE sidestep right means, you can switch your sidestep on and off. At the moment, you can only switch it on and have to 'sidestep left' to switch it off.)

For vertical stance adjustment, I prefer:
Ctrl+Scroll wheel up - stance up
Ctrl+Scroll whell down - stance down
(... as it is in your ticket, plutoto.)

IlluminousOne added a comment to T71318: [EDITOR REQUEST] Possibility of "(BUTTON) + Click" between 2 waypoints to create a new waypoint in between..

Solution is simple:
Place waypoint A (number is 0).
Place waypoint B (number is 1).
Place waypoint C (number is 2).

Now you want to change their sequence. You have to double click on C. In dialogue box: left side, 3rd line - there is the entry "Waypoint order".

Change the value from 2 to 1.
Result:
1st waypoint is A.
2nd waypoint is C.
3rd waypoint is B.

Combination of scroll wheel with different keys is very necessary.
As described above, there's a broad area of usage:

• vertical stance adjustment
• velocity control
• weapons selection
• fire mode (also think of different types of throwing a handgrenade)
• zeroing
• zooming (may be)
• and of course: menu selection (action menu, main menu, command menu, high command menu)

At the moment, from all these possibilities we have:
• menu selection

... what a poor performance. Please make it better then it is.

@Mariner
Thanks for your sincerity. Forgiven and forgotten.

@Devs
Nonetheless the problem with the feedbacktracker is still not solved. Like we now know: If a user pushes the update button without any update (or maybe with update) the feedbacktracker sends emails, although the issue is 'unmonitored'. Is does not send emails, if the issue is 'unmonitored' and you add a Note. (I added a Note in 0010355 after I unmonitored the issue, and as expected I didn't get an email.)

I'm not sure about that. If you accidentally not monitore this issue (-> 10854) and you get an email due to "A NOTE has been added to this issue.", then you're right. (Please post it here or in separate ticket, because in my opinion emails should only be sent, if you 'monitor' an issue.)

@p00d73
First of all I thought this, too. But then I studied the change log and watched on every 'side information' (like severity, reproducibility, resolution etc.) and nothing changed at all. I think the initiator of 10533 (-> Mariner) has nothing to do with it.

IlluminousOne added a comment to T68714: Waypoints for fireteams (assigned by color) as in High command mode.

Waypoints and commands should be released on signal. Means:
1.) You command your fireteam to 'move to position xy on my sign'.

(Then you command another fireteam 'move to position yz on my sign'.)

2.) You give command 'All units go.'

Maybe different signs are necessary, so you could say 'move to position xy on alpha (bravo, charlie, ...)'.

This concept is nice to find in commanding of fireteams. But more important it is in high command.

Just read the PDF at

Now I think, making reflections in game, just to show that devs can (!) make reflections, is not really a good idea. Indeed it's true what Laqueesha said:
"In real-life, these kinds of optics are designed to minimize reflections from light sources."

and
http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?159710-Development-Branch-AI-Discussion&p=2446646#post2446646

AI behaviour is in continuous rework. Within the discussion-thread (2nd link) the developers have explained in several posts, what they need from us (feedback giving users) and why they need it.

"More info" means:
1.) You have to give a test-mission (pbo- or sqm-file within zip-container) even if you only put two characters at anywhere on Stratis.
2.) You have to give repro-steps. What have you done, where have you looked to, did you fire et cetera.
3.) You have to explain the characteristic behaviour that is suspicious or buggy.
4.) Optional: You can explain the behaviour that you would expect.

The developers need repro-mission, because there are several variables that can (!) influence the AIs behaviour, like daytime, fog, height, surroundings, environment et cetera. (Especially your Rambo-problem has to do with surroundings, because AI is on the move to cover and ignores you on the way...)

To sum up:
You have explained, that two concrete aspects of AIs behaviour are suspicious, namely:
1.) The AI sometimes runs directly "into" you.
2.) The AI does not work as a group.

Missing
1.) a repro mission
2.) repro-steps in detail
