It varies in the real world based on magnetic north changing slightly over time. My point is this is a virtual environment. We have the option of true markings. So why not do it?

I understand what you are saying. What I am saying is this is a virtual environment. It is possible to have the runway on the actual heading of 200 instead of 195. Why would you not want that?

sarlac added a comment to T66143: Boats seem unnaturally slow when driving full speed.

Are you sure those speed number for the real boats were not in knots? That would make a huge difference. 68kph is only 36.7kt. As you can see this possible error would explain the seemingly odd slow top speeds of these vessels.

If we assume you made the mistake I think you did we should see 126kph for the speedboat and 59kph for the assault class.

Please recheck your sources to be sure you didn't take knots as kilometers. It's not the same thing and an easy mistake to make.

sarlac added a comment to T65970: Anti Hack program required!.

I get bombed all the time too. The way I look at it is this, the devs are aware of the issue. They have publicly stated that they will add battleeye or whatever when the time is right. But for now they are working on stability and other development related things. Remember what you are doing with arma 3 alpha. You are testing a product during its manufacture process. Things will get better eventually.

sarlac added a comment to T65946: Car brakes go on automatically when high speeds are reached.

Look man, the car decelerates, yes. I'm not arguing that. The point I'm making here is the sound you hear is not brakes its tires on pavement. It's already established that the tires on pavement sound is played no matter what surface the vehicle is on. Sand grass Tarmac whatever. So...

Unless you see brake lights when this thing happens its not braking but a limiter not working as intended. Ill be testing that myself in about an hour when I get home. If I see brake lights ill come back here and declare my mistake like a man.

May 10 2016, 2:20 AM · Arma 3
sarlac added a comment to T65946: Car brakes go on automatically when high speeds are reached.

Ok, here we go

Flat ground max speeds for each vehicle

hunter: 112 steady
hunter hmg/gmg: 116 and sudden drop to 92 (tire squeal heard, no brake lights, may be parking brake or gearbox who knows)

Ifrit all models: 137 steady (manufacturer says it's 150 but whatever)

civilian truck: 163 but its got some seriously strange problems
it acts like its got cruise control on or something and jittery tire squeal. I thought this was addressed in a previous patch but apparently not.

quadbike both models: 77 steady but terrible looping on the audio once you reach top gear

I'm not going to spend time finding a long downhill section to discover if the others exibit the sudden deceleration "feature" at some point. I'm sure some of them probably will if pushed past their designed top speeds.

I'm not opposed to a limited top speed for vehicles. Never said I was.
The data is here, the devs are reviewing the issue. I'm done with this now. Have fun.

May 10 2016, 2:20 AM · Arma 3
sarlac added a comment to T65946: Car brakes go on automatically when high speeds are reached.

Not to be pedantic, but, the sound you are talking about is the sound of tires losing traction. Yes, the vehicle does seem to brake suddenly at high speed, but as it happens at very high speed it seems like a limiter that is poorly implemented and causing sudden deceleration.

It doesn't matter what we call it as long as the dev team gets to the bottom of it.

May 10 2016, 2:20 AM · Arma 3
sarlac added a comment to T65946: Car brakes go on automatically when high speeds are reached.

It's not really the brakes. It seem like you're maxing our top gear and it locks up.

sarlac added a comment to T65854: Incorrect extra collision lights on mh/9 and ah/9.

@twistking, Not related to that one, no.

The lights I am speaking of here are "ghost lights" that should not exist. They are ON only when the real collision lights are OFF, and ONLY when the viewpoint is between 30 and 40 meters from the chopper. Watch the video or view the screenshots.

This issue is still not resolved.

I know you are working on lights, just keeping this at the top of the pile until it gets reviewed.

To be extra clear here, these are NOT the normal collision lights and are not a reflection on the fuselage. This is an obvious error. There is no valid light source that would cause this effect..

sarlac added a comment to T65612: EDIT: HUD crosshair doesn't respond to weapon aiming when sprinting..

That would be good. But as the players trigger finger is not on the trigger when he is running, indicating a safe handling procedure it would make sense to not be able to fire while in that state as well. I don't know why you want to be able to shoot the floor while you run, or shoot your knees. Issue is assigned. Mission accomplished.

sarlac added a comment to T65612: EDIT: HUD crosshair doesn't respond to weapon aiming when sprinting..

It's not about the double tap ctrl "lower weapon" stance. This is about the fact that when jogging since about 3 patches ago the crosshairs do not vanish and the weapon is still live even though it is pointed at the ground. You can say "keep you finger off the trigger" but this is not about that. This is about the crosshairs on screen not matching the muzzle and the weapon being active in a position where no one would want to fire. This is a bug and that is why we are here.

sarlac added a comment to T65355: Helicopter descent speed are very slow (especially the KA-60).

collective raise and lower cause ascent and descent at different rates depending on input device type and input type. Shouldn't these all be the same?

In the ah6/mh6
all figures in feet per minute from onboard VSI

keyboard:
2000 up
1800 down

mapped to joystick buttons:
7000 up and down

If you map the ANALOG collective to buttons on the joystick you get still another set of figures

2200 up
1800 down

however if using the analog collective inputs for non analog buttons, after releasing either button the helicopter falls at a rate of 1200 feet per minute until a non analog collective input is pressed.

In the KA-60
all figures in meters per minute from VSI on board

keyboard

sarlac added a comment to T64247: Vehicle Optics - Stuck in full zoom.

I've had this problem, but have been unable to find a way to stop the stuck zoom. Changing to a new vehicle will fix it but that's not always an option.

Definite steps to reproduce this issue:

  1. get into hunter OR IFRIT with hmg or gmg,
  2. move to gunner position.
  3. while holding "lock or zoom" (right click or bound to any other key), activate the gun camera.

You will need to bind "lock or zoom" or "optics" in a way that allows you to press "optics" while already holding "lock or zoom".

observe that gun cam is now zoomed in completely and can not be zoomed out.

How much time do you have in a battlefield environment to zero this new optic you are taking from your dead enemies weapon? Removing optics or other attachments is a two handed operation. Sometimes tools are required. These things are just not done in the field.

1000% yes. This is going to save so much time for mod makers and players alike.

The moon phase cycle is also reversed. I feel like this is a huge issue. Apparently stratis is south of africa for some reason.

even helos with skids should be able to , well, skid a bit.

As far as I can tell this is completely solved. Well done. Thank you.

So, @Karbiner

I have not tested in a few days and will in the morning.

Are you saying the rates of ascent and descent are now identical when you press q or z and when you map that same control to a joystick button? What about if you map analog collective to a button? My point is every method of commanding increase or decrease in altitude should produce the same maximum effect. In the past it did not. If that is the case then this issue is in fact resolved. I will test myself in about 7 hours.

Thank you but I made a mistake, that 2.5 should be 250

collective raise and lower cause ascent and descent at different rates depending on input device type and input type. Shouldn't these all be the same?

In the ah6/mh6
all figures in feet per minute from onboard VSI

keyboard:
2000 up
1800 down

mapped to joystick buttons:
7000 up and down

If you map the ANALOG collective to buttons on the joystick you get still another set of figures

2200 up
1800 down

however if using the analog collective inputs for non analog buttons, after releasing either button the helicopter falls at a rate of 1200 feet per minute until a non analog collective input is pressed.

In the KA-60
all figures in meters per minute from VSI on board

keyboard
600 up
600 down

joystick digital
2.5 up
2.5 down

joystick analog (mapped to a button)
700 up
600 down

  with a button release fall rate of 500 meters per minute

Please correct this issue
