MadocComadrin added a comment to T84666: Tank Platoons struggle to stay in formation..

Up-voted. I would suggest making some sort of repro mission (maybe one in A3 and a similar one in A2) and uploading it. Even if things are relatively easy to set-up, reports seem to get more attention when you upload a repro, and this definitely deserves attention.

MadocComadrin added a comment to T70123: setMass affects how heli control feels, only backwards.

While freezes aren't a good thing, I have to ask, what exactly did you expect to happen? In real life, objects with 0 mass must always move at the speed of light, and I doubt PhysX would simulate that properly. :P

Try landing on a roof or some other object (eg. the large water storage tank at the airbase). Skid choppers really bounce there.

MadocComadrin added a comment to T70047: AI leaders will wait too long before issuing order to heal team mates.

Another thing to note is that for some reason, the medics only want to approach you from the exact left to heal you, and rotating causes them to run a few meters away, THEN circle around to the left side.

Likewise, I've often experienced medics not following the support order after a few seconds without receiving new orders.

MadocComadrin added a comment to T70042: Collective Lower Pitches Helicopter Nose Down.

E is assigned to vehicle fast-forward, which you can't reassign in the options menu. Assigning downcollective to E will lower collective, but it just so happens that vehicle fast-forward for choppers in an aggressive pitch down, which it will also do.

You can change this by going to your current <profilename>.Arma3Profile file deleting the 18 from the keyHeliFastForward entry.

MadocComadrin added a comment to T69971: BTR-K top speed too high.

I think this is only on paved roads. I haven't been able to get the BTR-K above 65 kmph, even on a downslope, on terrain or dirt roads. I've gotten to around 70 kmph with the Panther.

Well, if they're supposed to be AA missiles, the devs will make sure they work like AA missiles. Reporting the mix-up will solve the problem no matter what was intended.

Looking in the editor in the most recent dev build, it looks like the yellow road texture is broken and misaligned at the bridges.

MadocComadrin added a comment to T69556: AI pathfinding issues in Agia Marina, especially bridges..

Aye, they do know to open fire...except they keep spinning and start spraying bullets (or worse, grenades) in every direction.

MadocComadrin updated subscribers of T69556: AI pathfinding issues in Agia Marina, especially bridges..

@Bootsy: I figured that at least part of the issue would be related to general pathfinding, but my main concern is the two bridges, as they seem to lead to consistent sticking, and the sticking leads to behavior where the AI can't even get unstuck with some help nor can they defend themselves (as they're constantly circling).

MadocComadrin added a comment to T68407: AMV-7 / MSE-3 Wheels Spin Indefinitely in Water.

I don't actually see them spin unless they hit something, in which case they'll spin in the appropriate direction of the impact--which is a little silly

MadocComadrin added a comment to T68129: AMV-7, MSE-3 & Strider amphibious vehicles, lack of overlap between wheel drive mode & propeller drive modes leads to NO drive..

Interestingly, I managed to sink an AMV to the bottom of the sea--with the wheels touching the sea floor (setVelocity is fun). You get the exact same issue: the wheels won't turn and the rotors won't turn (and you stay sunk).

Isn't there currently a bug where all AI know where you are after you kill someone? Do they have the same reaction if you intentionally miss?

MadocComadrin added a comment to T61872: New technique for rendering grass at far distance.

For the issue of people in cover in front of objects: reducing the transparency slightly and adding some of the color of the grass onto the masked parts (which can be done with minimal additional performance impact) could help with that. It would make the unit look less like a ghost in front of rocks and such.

MadocComadrin added a comment to T61600: Horrible convoy driving of AI vehicles.

Part of the problem is the formation ai: sometimes the AI will not take the shortest/easiest path to its position in formation, especially in vehicles. If they overshoot their position or are blocked by some obstacle or steep slope, they will spaz out.

@Kol9yN: the ticket doesn't say RTT, which would be somewhat better in terms of performance.

Actually, I just thought of something. If PIP or RTT is used not for the scope view, but for the periphery, you could keep decent performance on the scope (which matters more) while being able to turn down the quality of the periphery.

MadocComadrin added a comment to T60877: Feature Request: 3D Optics using Picture-In-Picture engine capability. (Red Orchestra Style).

As much as I'd like to see this, I can't upvote it, as ARMA's PIP would make scopes unusable for me due to performance reasons.

“The game industry has a history of depicting female characters inappropriately.”
Interestingly, they do the same with male characters--it's simply that you don't need to make a male as scantily clad to make them sex-objects.

Anyway, I'd like to see this, but it should be very low priority.

@TTc30: it really depends on the situation. I can take out a whole squad in about 45 seconds as an autorifleman with a good position firing at enemies in areas of little cover--that's not bad. Put me in a dense forest with poor visibility, and I'll be lucky if I can get about 4 in 2 minutes.
