most appreciated my friend :) still new to this whole thing. Glad you were watching the tracker!
I think as of right now the only things in an alpha that should be worried about are critical features such as windows 8 not meshing real well and thats the next big OS and other game craashing items that cause players the inability to play at all. Then when its beta actually no when its released people can worry about female models or whether or not they get tired in their left leg fast than their right leg because they are crouch sprinting while leaning left!
Bud, What they are trying to represent with the bird not falling to the ground is called auto rotation. In which a catastrophic failure of the motor completely disengages it from the blades themselves and they freely spin at max rotation until relative energy is lost. This still creates lift and provides a window for the pilot to safely get to the ground before total free-fall is induced. As for the damage and the flips most of the birds in the game actually can as their relative geometry is almost symmetric on either side and all of them have variable geometry rotors and it does not take as much altitude as you think. The damage is just a hit box issue that im sure will be tweaked. I hope this helps your understanding a little better as to why they do this. Semper!
Dont worry about it Madone. It is his right to say that and his right to have that opinion. I support his opinion in an offset way because it is a right that many people including myself fight for. It is our right to choose to ignore it because unfortunately we cant just say hey you cant have that opinion but we can have this one. Thats the whole idea behind freedom. Your free to do as YOU please as long as it does not infringe on others freedoms or safety.
@rogerx I dont take my job lightly and thanks for the capitalization corrections. Much obliged. Children do not relate video games to violence as much as you make it sound and they are not inciting war. Im not sensitized to war because to be honest im not a weak individual. People in world war 2 were kept in the dark and didnt know of alot of the atrocities and they supported the war wholeheartedly you look at today half the country doesnt remember we are at war. Why you want me to research WW2 is beyond me. But in my line of work i see the necessity of what we do and have first hand experience in what we are trying to create for the people of afghanistan who despite popular belief actually love us and want us to stay. So no im not sensitive to war and im not sensitive to these political views. Biased as it may be politics are retarded political correctness is just plain stupid and getting up in arms over 3 words regardless of what they may be or what they may represent is an idiotic venture.
And as you can tell i dont much care for grammatical correctness on an internet forum. Im not writing a naval letter or a formal letter to someone of importance!
Also Mr Benedikt, Saying war is evil and bad is a waste of time. The only people who will truly see the end of war are the dead. Long as it is so, that humans walk these lands, war will ravage them and peace shall not be plentiful.
Mr Benedikt, i would go back because i spend my life in the corps training and training and training then some eating then more training for combat. I eat sleep and breath the idea of seeking out closing with and destroying an enemy so much so it gets sickening to not be able to do it. When i deploy im not training, im not practicing, it all comes to a point and i have a purpose and as a Marine that purpose is to provide the enemy a chance to die for their country. I love that job. Dont get me wrong i'm no baby killer, nor am i a war criminal by any means, and i would gun down one of my own brothers if i saw in any case him do the same to a child or any non combatant for that matter. But anyone who has the testicular fortitude to stand up and throw the gloves on id love to be the one to trade blows. We are bred for war and trained to win, its what im good it and its what i know. I have experienced some of the best men ive ever knowing dying and some of my best friends being maimed and if any of those men had to sacrifice it all over they wouldn't even blink. Id do the same for any of them. That is why id jump at the chance to go back, hell to any conflict my country needed my service in. Id go willingly. The whole point of it is if anyone should have any thing to say about this whole war being offensive or not thing in a damn game, a hypothetical creation of entertainment, it should be people like me who have actually experienced it.
And colinm478, 1864 yes 151 years ago the idea in god we trust being on currency (i.e. a 2c piece) im terribly sorry i didnt take the time to google it. And separation of church and state isnt an amendment to the constitution nor is it in the constitution. It was an idea, a piece of advice never formally accepted by the government as law.
Ok, this is the most ridiculous thread i've seen to date. I can tell a majority of you have never been to war. This is war should stay. Im sick and tired of people crying for other peoples feelings if you dont like it ignore it or please just do as the command line says to get rid of it. Its just like taking in god we trust off of currency because 1 person got offended so hundreds of years of tradition is changed. We cant take care of EVERYONE's feelings people it just wont work and trying to censor a line in a video game because its about war? I personally know the horrors of war and believe you me if i got the opportunity to go back to Afghanistan id take it in less than a heartbeat! You want to speak on the horrors of war then serve and deploy if not you have no base understanding and thus should only have a limited opinion because it is uneducated and ignorant to form a vast opinion on something you know nothing about!!!
Actually no i have never seen the police dual wield pistols. That is a ridiculous idea and a ridiculously ineffective way to handle a firearm that movies and criminals alike have emblazoned on the civilian publics' idea of gunbattles
I will vote this up because it makes sense. Weapons such as the Mk 32A1 are carried by grunts and they also carry an M4 or M16A4 as well for standard engagements when the grenade launcher isn't needed. Or Scout Snipers in the Marines typically carry something like the 40A5 M110 and depending on mission role also pack out a 107.

To any moderators this problem has been corrected in the dev builds and can be removed !!
Never mind it has been validated and is up to code still the game completely crashes out. Could it be my OS?
Alright very helpful now as I have absolutely no experience scripting if the validation comes up with an issue how do I go about fixing it or is it an automatic function?
How so, Also I am using windows 8 if you could lend any advice as to problem areas I could check it would be appreciated.
Scarecrow398 your information is semi correct but most NATO forces use a STANAG IMTV flak system with for aft port and starboard plates.
There are numerous things that need to be fixed. Like the animation, splash effects having almost no effect unless you direct impact or land a round at a targets feet, probability of impacted based on sight is almost nil, and zeroing increments of 100 meters is almost unacceptable as you can really only lob a grenade out to 400 meters that's only 4 incremental changes for something that's only designed for relative close range.
It is called the bindon aiming principal and to see it incorporated with a video game would be awesome in my opinion.
I hope you people understand helicopters like the AH9 have variable tilt rotors and are fully capable of upside down flight as is the KA 60 and almost any other military bird. This is to combat retreating blade stall to give the birds as much forward speed as possible but in-inadvertently also allows for upside down flight.
MWNCIBOO, I know a few females who i would be scared to piss off too. But they are few and far between. The point is 90% of the females in the U S Military from my experience are lay malingering slack offs with no business in a combat organization. That 10% is not enoug hto justify the amount of money and training differences to be made and spent nor does it outweigh the cons in the least bit. Sexual harassment will skyrocket and unit cohesion will bury itself in the ground. These are not adult fully mature males here we speak of, most of the "kids" in my unit as i call them are 18 or 19 hell im only 22 years old and im an NCO of Marines. So you take highschool age kids and put them in this situation they are of course going to bicker and humiliate females and that is going to completely destroy a chain of command. We recently had a 17 year MSgt of Marines get dishonorably discharged because he got drunk made a few choice comments that should not have been made and was reported by an 18 year old PFC who got offended because she heard a dick conversation from her higher ups. That man went down for sexual harassment and lost a 17 year career and his means of feeding his family because he was talking about penises in close range of a female, you think it will work seriously? get real!
Wrona no that is not how it is. The standards for females are reduced and the testing is different because they CANNOT meet the male standard. It is not even it is not fair and its a ridiculous argument for equality when the stuff you already have isnt equal. You want equality do the equal amount of work or shut up.
Wrona your just stupid. And please speak in your natural tongue if your just going to sound illiterate otherwise. There were female snipers yes during times of attrition in which war was made too painful for the opposing force to fight it. And yes they attain many logistical and suppoting roles of the combat arms world. But as of right now they do not hold a combat arms MOS and in my very humble opinion SHOULD NEVER be allowed to unless they meet the EXACT same standards as males. Since the military and government have already reduced their physical standards and requirements by 30% compared to males and are going to keep that "handicap" for when they introduce them to a combat arms world i think its absolutely stupid. Its like saying anything you can do i can do better if its only 30% easier and its going to get women killed and men killed trying to pick up the slack of someone who cant actually hack it but was let through to be the token female!
If a woman can role with the infantry let her thats fine. But reducing physical standards is not the answer and thats what they have chosen to do. A 60 pound pack doesnt care if you have 30% lower requirements its still a 60 pound pack. Women ARE NOT IMPLEMENTED as combat roles. The testing has been approved and trial females are going through now. It wont happen anytime before 2015 because thats the beginning of the integration date. The whole idea is ridiculous to try and make BI worry about something ridiculous like this. If it is that big of a deal to you script it in later on your own like almost everyone else who wants a specialty addon for their own gaming pleasure. This is not a priority, this is not a legitimate concern. I personally, as a Marine, dont want to have to be forced to play with female characters because i already have experienced the "capabilities" of most females who join. Sure i know of some who can whip my ass and who i wouldnt mess with but seriously the majority of women are no where near physically prepared for the rigors of combat. I have never seen a coed hump without 3 to 4 female fallout's at least, same goes for runs, same goes for the fact 60% of females go on remedial pt because they cant pass a PFT. They have different tests than males already because they cant do pullups. This whole idea is ridiculous. You want to be put on equal terms fine but this is just something that the majority of women are not and never will be equal too its an anatomical fact and im sorry. For those of you who think im sexist go ahead, but i was raised under the idea women are precious and should be protected from any and all harm. I absolutely detest trying to put women in active combat roles. Its going to be a sad sad i told you so when we realize it isnt going to work and all we have done is destroy our unit cohesion and combat effectiveness.
Well all of this is ridiculous. ! there are no females in active combat roles at all. They have yet to figure out what the female standards are going to be as they are required to lower them by 40% capacity. 2 The is hardly any of the game features active as this is a testing phase. Its like asking for a full scale release by tomorrow people. You asking this is ridiculous at this time. All of the other people passing out their 10 cents as to what a female can or cannot do, I have personally seen several females who would straight merk most guys. Physically, in combat, in martial standards, uniform standards, and merit for professionalism on duty. This isn't the place or the forum to argue over sex, but on the other end females wont enter combat roles until 2015 as per the reference to UCMJ. Cease the nonsense and get back to the real meat and potatoes of testing a fledgling game please.
I am a Marine, With actually a lot of hand grenade training and use, though none in combat I have personally thrown over 300 M67 grenades. Even trying to throw as fast as I could removing both safeties and then prepping to throw all while maintaining positive control of the spoon it could easily take 5 to 10 seconds to effectively/safely get a grenade down range from pouch to throw. Add on top of that gear and a firearm in the way this was just me throwing in a complete static stress free environment and it takes a good bit. That goes to show mr sizzlorr how much training effects grenade use age.
