mepwaygame added a comment to T80709: AI don't keep up, and do not respond well to "move" or "get in" commands when in "danger" mode. (New movement command suggested).

If they're refusing to follow a stance order in any mode it sounds like new bug. Your other ticket should sort that out if that's the case.

As far as movement speed. The AI shouldn't cheat, but only 'know' an enemy is near if they 'see' them. Given that's the case I would hope they would move more carefully, and slowly, in stealth mode. There's nothing stopping you from setting them to "aware" if you want them to move normally, or set more waypoints in the editor.

With combat mode I don't care what they do, as everything is so random that it usually doesn't matter how hard the AI tries to be careful in a firefight. In fact it seems to me like combat mode does more harm than good a lot (if not most) of the time. Which is what this ticket is trying to solve.

I agree they need 2 separate Move commands.

Edit: Another reason you don't want AI running wildly all the time, is if you've got squad members doing things halfway across the map. If you give them a move command, it's better they move slower so you have time to react and issue orders when they spot enemies.

mepwaygame added a comment to T71938: Water around player should realistically move and splash.

The tickets you read weren't made by ARMA supporters, but rather ARMA defilers. The engine is in DIRE need of improvement visually and physically? There's plenty of room for improvement in those aspects, but there it's already better than ARMA 2.
I can't imagine wanting to play this with somebody who thinks water splashes are 'fundamentally' important to ARMA, no offense, so I'm down-voting on the grounds that maybe you and others like you will not play if they leave this out.

EDIT: Forgot to put the smiley face so people would know I'm joking... oops :) Really downvoting because, F*** water!

So I said alright I'm gonna enjoy the rest of my day off and try this mission again, but this time I won't screw up the UAV with any waypoints at all - I'll do everything manually... So I play for 15 minutes, start running low on fuel so land the UAV. What do my eyes behold? The thing starts taking off again. Playing and scripting for this shit is as productive and enjoyable as rubbing my genitals against a cheese grater.

I was on 'stable' as it turns out....

I updated to dev build and tried messing with the UAV again, thinking now that Fireball showed me the noobness of my ways things would go better. I landed, turned off engine, switched to turret to keep an eye on things, and it took off. Well at least I was emotionally prepared this time, and only cried a little.

mepwaygame added a comment to T70362: Stealth mode Ai uses crouch 90% of the time.

You're not wrong tyl3r. But remember we're talking about AI. It's bad enough for the AI to be aware of their environment, let alone be able to interpret the situation. The more rules you try to make the AI follow, the more game performance is going to suffer, and the more bugs you're going to introduce.

I would think mostly using crouch stance even if they can't see enemies may be a good compromise, personally I'd rather they err on the side of caution than try to be 'smart'. It's about the best you can expect from the AI, and playing under an AI superior will probably always be hugely disappointing.

The good news is that as a squad leader, you can change your guys to 'aware' or tell them to stand up when no enemies are around. If you want to leapfrog through the woods, you can divide your group into teams and move them up accordingly. It's not perfect, but the controls are there.

Well the AI has to make up for being retarded with knees of rubber.

Sorry if I sounded preachy. I played a lot of ARMA 2 and got tired of the AI standing up WAY too much in stealth. Now it looks like they're finally addressing the issue, maybe.

mepwaygame added a comment to T70362: Stealth mode Ai uses crouch 90% of the time.

Wait. This is a bug? Are they supposed to sprint? It's called stealth mode a.k.a try not to be seen. If you don't want them to crouch you put them in aware. They are obviously working on and improving the AI, as they used to use bounding movements in stealth.

mepwaygame added a comment to T70357: AI in combat mode do not want to get up and stay prone all the time.

Oh you know what, I gave them a move order to the waypoint when I tested it. If they follow you to the waypoint they stay prone just as much it seems.

mepwaygame added a comment to T70357: AI in combat mode do not want to get up and stay prone all the time.

I tested out the repro mission and they definitely seemed like they were going to crawl all the way to the waypoint destination. This was with an AI squad leader. Maybe this intended behavior or part of the WIP, idk.

I tried setting myself as the squad leader and the AI seemed to behave as they always did: only going prone sometimes.

EDIT: I misspoke, when giving AI a move order as squad leader, they did not stay prone. No change otherwise.

mepwaygame added a comment to T70357: AI in combat mode do not want to get up and stay prone all the time.

They might ask for a repro mission in addition to those screens...

"Copy my stance" really means "do whatever you feel is best given current combat mode." Don't ask me why.

I don't know how much AI should crawl while in combat mode, or how fast they should cover 400m in combat mode, because for all AI know they are in combat or will be at any second. But this ticket may be a decent compromise:

mepwaygame added a comment to T70317: fire teams colors will reset when changing characters.

Ahh this problem...

There is a reason (I think). When you swap characters AI will take control of your squad leader. He will reset your teams, often tell your units to open fire and disembark/embark vehicles, etc. Pretty much anything to screw up your careful planning and at the worst possible time.

I suspect this can be averted by using the 'disableAI' scripting command. Though I never played with it to see if that will work. Hopefully somebody out there can shed some light on that?

I can't think of a reason for wanting AI to control your squad leader other than defending himself. So I'll definitely have to upvote this.

I may be misunderstanding and forgive me if I am, but it sounds like the waypoint isn't attached to the vehicle.

If you are placing waypoints and you double click on a vehicle, that vehicle becomes 'attached' to that waypoint. If the waypoint is attached correctly (you can't move the waypoint without moving the vehicle, too) they should not go to any other vehicle.

Tip to Falloutperson416.

Some of these Beta testers have issues with differentiating reality from fantasy. The game is full of make-believe equipment on a make-believe island, but if a fox shows up then OMG IT'S NOT REALISTIC EVEN THOUGH THE AI IS SO DAMN RETARDED AND PLAYERS ARE F-ING PSYCHOTIC THAT THE ONLY THING GOOD ABOUT THE GAME IS IT LOOKS PRETTY! :)

But I doubt they'll get to this ticket as there are already some animals and unless you're really specific they'll probably ask for more info. I'd love to see more life built into the engine though.

Yeah this is really gonna make those epic underwater battles with pellet guns so much less exciting... It's a SIM. Stop swimming to reload or play another game.

Well there's clearly room for more guys to snuggle up, judging from the pic. Maybe the Devs thought we are homophobes... and in my case they would be right.

Maybe use 2 boats? I mean why be uncomfortable?

I've been on a couple boats and they were pretty slow. If the water is choppy you'll be lucky to go that fast on a small boat - I believe anyway. I don't actually like boats and I'm not sure what the average speeds are in knots, mph, or kmh... so what can I say.

Well, he did raise some interesting points.

All this shit does barely work.

mepwaygame added a comment to T69849: AI uses AT launchers against infantry targets..

I just tested as a single sniper and did get the AI to shoot RPGs at me, though I was just standing there. I guess if you give them a shot they'll take it if they don't kill you quickly enough with rifles. So I was wrong about the groups thing, but I was still asking for it...

I'd definitely be happy with them saving the last rocket, or only using RPGs on infantry when a human player orders it (or if otherwise enabled), or whatever.

I just don't want to play the game and think "Well we're just some measly rifleman so at least we never have to worry about being shot at by RPGs..."

Or in other words: once the AI starts following very strict rules on when to do what then the simulation aspect of the game is gone... Because then you know exactly what they'll do. Really anything should be possible, but the probable should happen most of the time.

If the AI wipes out an entire squad because they're bunched up and out in the open I wouldn't call it a bug.

I understand the argument for saving AT rounds, but the AI can't even suppress, and they can barely shoot. I wouldn't call them professionals. And how they supposed to know you have tanks at the end of your mission? Is there a crystal ball in one of the ammo boxes? :)

Either way, if you have Missile Specialists instead of Rifleman ATs in your missions they should save their ammo for the tanks.

I made a vid of an AI experiment regarding this topic if you care: http://youtu.be/WJpWcVP65lI

mepwaygame added a comment to T69849: AI uses AT launchers against infantry targets..

I've experimented in the editor and have found that it's just Rifleman ATs who will fire RPGs at GROUPS of STATIONARY infantry. Missile Specialists carrying Titan launchers don't seem to fire them at infantry...

This seems pretty realistic. I don't think an RPG round is so precious you wouldn't use it to wax a group of guys if you could... and it only looks like they're spamming rockets when you have a group made of nothing but Rifleman ATs. MAYBE they should fire one at a time, but that's a minor issue.

This ticket seems more geared towards the annihilation of a new FEATURE / IMPROVEMENT rather than a tweak

So we have 10 to 1 votes to get rid of:

  1. an AI improvement
  2. more realism and challenge
  3. more variety
  4. more explosions

Maybe people can enlighten me as to why they're upvoting?

Yeah I'm just glad they're not afraid to use that damn launcher. And since the AI gets killed anyway they're better off shooting rockets while they can.

Oh no, I saw it. I thought you meant "way over the top" compared to ARMA, not compared to every bad action movie ever made :)

You were selling me on the idea until I watched the video. I expected to see something somewhat realistic. What I saw was over-the-top cartoon violence that put Max Payne to shame!

I'm gonna have to downvote, but lucky for you I'm apparently the minority.

So for anybody reading this is NOT a duplicate.

Sorry, I didn't read it due to all the words, but had just finished viewing another ticket talking about Dyslexci's video. It looked like he sparked some kind of uprising.

mepwaygame added a comment to T69490: Water around player should realistically move and splash.

The tickets you read weren't made by ARMA supporters, but rather ARMA defilers. The engine is in DIRE need of improvement visually and physically? There's plenty of room for improvement in those aspects, but there it's already better than ARMA 2.
I can't imagine wanting to play this with somebody who thinks water splashes are 'fundamentally' important to ARMA, no offense, so I'm down-voting on the grounds that maybe you and others like you will not play if they leave this out.

EDIT: Forgot to put the smiley face so people would know I'm joking... oops :) Really downvoting because, F*** water!
