cyrilator added a comment to T75826: Add a module which changes the Independent faction loyalty.

side1 setFriend [side2 , value];

eg : to set independant allied to west :

Resistance setfriend [West,1];

(turn the value to 0 to set them enemy.)

if you place this code into the init line of the unit he will be the only one to be friend with west, you must add it for each independent units you want to be friend with west (blufor).

if you want this code to apply for all present independant units without the need to edit for each present units, place the code into the init.sqf of your mission.

cyrilator added a comment to T73968: Unable to open UAV terminal.

in the mission .pbo folder check this :

  • be sure the uav is not empty (that there is controlable AI in it)
  • be sure that the player uses the correct uav terminal to control his uav :

classname :

B_UavTerminal (blufor)
O_UavTerminal (opfor)
I_UavTerminal (independant)

blufor uav terminal can only control blufor uav, same goes for other factions.

i don't know what BIS plan to add concerning multiplayer missions, but if you are looking for a very good online pvp, try "FT-2" Capture & Hold. (called C&H Valhalla on arma 2)

it's one of the best pvp mission for arma 3.

cyrilator updated subscribers of T73487: view distance limit has too much roundness effect.

@Jimmy, the arma 2 picture uploaded has definitely not his view distance pushed to 10km.

so the comparaison isn't fair. i'm gonna upload another one is the same conditions.

we can see that arma 2 had an additional fog effect simulating a flat horizon that attenuated the roundness effect.

May 10 2016, 6:43 AM · Arma 3
cyrilator added a comment to T73487: view distance limit has too much roundness effect.

there is no "bubble effect" In Real Life, even when it's about fog.

and, once again it's not an engine limitation since this effect wasn't present in arma 2.

it's a bad view distance limit rendering that can be perfectly fixed.

instead of using a curved limit distance, it should use a flatter rendering.

the curve is very visible even when using short view distance, that's a very unaesthetic and unrealistic effect.

May 10 2016, 6:43 AM · Arma 3
cyrilator added a comment to T73487: view distance limit has too much roundness effect.

@Fireball: i don't think it's an engine limitation, since this effect didn't occured with arma 2.

@HaydenG: the view distance is already maxed up to 12km. the solution would be to change how is displayed this fog, currently it use a curve, while it should use a straight line.

cyrilator added a comment to T73056: MRCO optic is stronger than HAMMER optic.

giving the real name is the first thing to do to get something realistic.

"the MRCO is most likely."

yes, and this is precisely the problem. "most likely" is the pretext to introduce futuristic stuffs that don't match with real models.

the "futuristic" excuse is a solution for BIS to compensate the lack of degree of realism in term of model precision and characteristic.

cyrilator added a comment to T73056: MRCO optic is stronger than HAMMER optic.

this is the problem with arma 3, nearly every stuffs are fictive models, inspirated by real ones, but remaining fictive. so BIS is free to take any characteristics and values for his stuffs, and claim to be realistic.

MRCO, HAMMER... these things don't exist. impossible to have a clear source on a specific data or characteristic to check if it's correct or not.

BIS is free to create anything he wants, giving any values to any stuffs and claiming to be futuristic.

there is no more accuracy in term of realism in arma 3

BIS still use a crew system for uav to control them. this is a bad solution

what is needed is a new script to take control of empty vehicle, where you can control uav movements without AI. a real connection system.

it would get ride of the impossibility to control spawned uav/ugv.

shooting with 90° angle while crouching is perfectly possible.

just test it yourself for real. put one knee on the ground, take something similar to a weapon (fake or not) and aim at 90°.

ACE 2 Mod already has this implemented for arma 2, and it's very usefull. the main interest is to have a full aiming angle capability.

a crosshair showing the exact hit impact is completely ridiculous.

the crosshair should not show where the bullet hit but the approximate direction of where the player is pointing his rifle.

to make the crosshair too accurate remove the interest of the iron sight.

the concept of crosshair itself is bad.

in an ideal simulation crosshair should be removed, you should feel and guesstimate where your rifle is pointing without any visual help.

cyrilator added a comment to T71339: RQ4-A UAV should maintain the same flightpath when switching role..

yes, this is an autopilot function : maintaining the speed, the direction, and the altitude.

this function should be available in the pilot role mouse menu. (Autopilot ON/OFF). then the user can safely switch to gunner role and has his uav perfectly stable, without risk of crashing, no unexpected uav movements, and greatly reduced effect of camera shaking.

cyrilator added a comment to T71339: RQ4-A UAV should maintain the same flightpath when switching role..

cyrilator added a comment to T71339: RQ4-A UAV should maintain the same flightpath when switching role..

circling around the target to engage is the worst thing that can happen.

the uav constantly change direction in unpredictable way and make you lose the correct orientation to fire the missile, and you must constantly compensate the turret camera orientation, rendering the target engagement nearly impossible due to lot of shaking.

when you have the piloting control you should align the uav in the correct direction, then you switch to gunner role. your uav should stay stable during the firing procedure.

the uav should only follow waypoints that you personnaly made. if you didn't made waypoints the uav should stay stable, like if it was in autopilot (maintaining the same direction, altitude and speed).

ps : the fact to enable the laser designator make the uav to align with the target direction, but there is still lot of camera shaking since the uav is going upside down every 5 seconds.

this is why i suggested to remove the automatic waypoint followed by AI when it takes control of pilot role.

http://feedback.arma3.com/view.php?id=12980

When the player switch from the pilot role to gunner role, the uav should not move from itself at all. the uav should keep the same direction, altitude and speed, like an autopilot.

this would completely remove all parasitic movements when shooting laser guided weapons.

(note that the camera view always stay horizontal, it never swing, it's because there is 4 or 6 axis stabilization, and the image never shake.)

cyrilator added a comment to T71165: Vehicle Crews - Stop abandoning Vehicles - Add Repair skill and behaviour.

voted down. IRL when your tank is damaged by ied or missile hit there is no possibility to repair it instantly with magical repair function.

Arma must not become BF or COD.

IRL you need heavy repair logistic to repair severe damages. it can immobilize your vehicles during days or weeks.

ingame if your vehicles is severely damaged you shouldn't have the possibility to repair it instantly. that's would ruin the immersion if a player would be able to repair a tank from a missile hit.

engine, track, turret broken = can't be fixed on the field.

broken vehicles should be transportable with special semi-trailer to a factory building (both to be implemented) and require specific delay. for ex : dozens of minutes, unrealistic but for gameplay purpose.

BadVideogame said "I'd prefer to pay for an expansion with all ArmA 2 content, rather than have to load the old one with AiA."

why people already owning a2 should pay again for the exact same content ? that's a non sense.

cyrilator added a comment to T71018: Make A3 engine backwards compatibility to A2/OA content a top priority post release..

half of the a3 contents is fictive. most of them will not be in use even in 2035. (canceled, final version will have lot of differences with a3 version, BIS invention...etc)

the last real military simulation was arma 2, because it was made at 100% on real content, and content is in use for real.

Arma 3 would have been a much better game if all the arma 2 content was reused in A3, with a new level of detail. (completely new retexturisation, new animations, new features.....etc)

the perfect game is the A2 vehicles and weapons with the A3 engine.

AIA is a must. without it simulation and realism is half dead. it would also kill all the work done by the ACE mod team.

BIS must garantee retrocompatibility
