stonestriker added a comment to T75458: add the distance to the rearm action to the action menu like the target menu.

Did we not get a distance attached to each target in the Target menu. Then it should be possible to get this as well in the Action menu, and have them sorted as described. This should hopefully be easy.

But I would like to take it a step further. Have a command in the Action menu, that just says Rearm. AI will then locate the closest source for rearming with the standard loadout for its class (FAK, grenades, magazines, etc.). If this could consider any live Ammo Bearers as well, it would be even better.

stonestriker added a comment to T74794: Accessing inventory while in a vehicle.

As stated in my second line, I would have each vehicle have a number of cargo spaces, with each cargo space only available to certain seats and having varying cargo space.

So if we take a Humvee, it should have a trunk cargo space (with 70% of the Humvee carry capacity) and a crew compartment cargo space (with the remaining 30%). The crew cargo space should be accessible for all crew members at all times (possible also for exited soldiers standing beside the vehicle), while the trunk should only be available for soldiers standing behind the vehicle.

I know that this solution is not for everyone, but that would be my preference.

stonestriker added a comment to T74794: Accessing inventory while in a vehicle.

We can definitely agree that the current implementation is inconsistent and makes both of us unhappy :)

Failing to specify location of cargo space and which seats have access to what cargo for each vehicle, I would however prefer the more limited version.

My reasoning is that I feel it is too fast to switch equipment as it is, and this could help somewhat with 'vehicular ammoboxes'

@ArmaPlayer: I don´t want the game to be 'super-realistic', but it should make sense. A driver reaching back, grapping a Titan Launcher, while still driving a tank does not make sense to me.

It would depend on the vehicle. In an Ifrit it might possible, however most of the armoured vehicles, the driver does not have access to the passenger seats (where the storage space usually is.

stonestriker added a comment to T72788: A-143 Buzzard's HE rounds ineffective in air to air engagements.

I know there is an AA variant that can be used, but I was arguing that the plane was built for CAS, but can be equipped to provide basic AA capability. This would make sense for a small country that cannot afford multiple plane types.

However while exchanging bombs for AA missiles is a simple process that can be done by ground crew in a few hours, I am not sure that the gun is made to be "plug-and-play" the same way.

You are totally right. My aunt told me she heard from a bus driver that all sniper rifles shoot with depleted-tungsten triple-duty rounds with dark matter cores, that weighs around 150 kg and travels at a speed of around 4600 m/s which equals 1.6 Gj. That equals around 380 kg TNT. One shot, one giant explosion!

I agree that being able to see further with high beam would be good, but when would you use low beam? Would that only be for not blinding your team mates. There is rarely any opposing traffic to blind :)

stonestriker added a comment to T71063: Simulation/modeling fragments/shrapnel (grenades, shells, mine).

I agree that some kind of fragmentation modelling would be really nice, but your suggestion only make sense for cases where LOS between soldier and grenade are completely unobscured. As soon as this is not the case, ie. partial cover from walls, other soldiers, etc. it gets more complicated.

The total number of fragments are also fixed, so the chance of getting hit needs to increase exponentially as you get closer to the grenade. And then the speed of the fragments needs to be considered at different ranges as 2000 m/s can kill you while 1000 m/s will "just" hurt a lot.

So a simple model can probably be created but your suggestions might just be a bit too simple :)

stonestriker added a comment to T70974: MK6 Flare is just a white dot.

Try turning cloud cover to max, and I think you will see a slight change in ground illumination when using flares. So the problem is not that they have no illuminating effect, but that it is too weak.

Part of the problem is also that the flares either deploy to early, or burn out too fast, so that they never get close enough to the ground to provide useable illumination.

stonestriker added a comment to T67950: Military Police.

Military police DOES deploy to other countries, where they police their own soldiers (drunk driver, deserters, substance abuse, etc.) However this is not terribly relevant for the game.

But they also handle prisoners of war, traffic control for military convoys (both combat troops and supply trucks), escort VIPs and perform as couriers for sensitive information. These actions all seem interesting for scenario design, and thus I see it as a relevant request to include character models + MP specific skin for a vehicle.

Furthermore the ability to restrain an individual could be useful for ordinary soldiers/special forces as well. Currently being a prisoner has to be roleplayed/scripted, as you can run freely, pickup weapons, shout to others. Having equipment to stop a character for picking up/using items, disabling running or gagging a prisoner to stop them from alerting the enemy would be great.

stonestriker added a comment to T67901: Barrel Changing.

Well, we have different opinions on how to use the downvote system then :) As I see it, a downvote for a ticket is a relative increase in value of my upvotes on tickets important to me.

I have also downvoted a ticket for dual-wielding pistols and SMGs, which, while quite unrealistic, could probably be useful some of the crazier mods. As I understand your reasoning, such a ticket should also not be downvoted.

I am certain that barrel-changing can have many good implications for the way you (and perhaps 99% of players) play the game, but from my POV it is not important.

May 10 2016, 3:35 AM · Arma 3
stonestriker added a comment to T67901: Barrel Changing.

Part of my downvote is because I see this request as two different things. The first is changing between identical barrels to stop overheating, while the other is the option of changing the characteristics of each weapon. Splitting the request would make more sense to me, but not you perhaps :)

The reason not to add overheating barrels is a matter of priority for me. Even though it is perfectly realistic to include, I would rather see Bohemia focus on other things.
If this was to be implemented correctly, it should be possible to for an assistant gunner to change the barrel, as he would probably be carrying the spare. And then the AI should be able to do this as well. I think this would take more development time that I would like spent on other things. However if this suggestion was separated from the other, I would certainly not downvote it, and perhaps upvote it depending on how you suggest it is implemented.

As for the changing barrels for customization, for me using development time for a feature that has poor value, from my perspective, is wasteful. The difference between having two different rifles, or one rifle and two barrels, in ammo box is negligible. And the ability to carry all the different barrels, receivers, etc. around with you to change weapon type in the field would only enhance the one-man-army tendency on public servers

May 10 2016, 3:35 AM · Arma 3
stonestriker added a comment to T67901: Barrel Changing.

Downvoted. Seems like two different suggestions, one for overheating barrel, and another for different barrels.

The overheating part would for me be too much simulation, not enough gameplay value, while the gameplay difference between having multiple barrels, or multiple versions of each gun, is nearly non-existent.

If it could be changed to compass directions at the same time, it would be great

It seems that a light fog has been added to nighttime, but otherwise it looks the same to me.

Changing the FOV might be an idea as well, however the narrow FOV is a problem in reality as well.

I think the poor depth perception with NVGs are due to a lack of strong shadows ,and that many NVGs are single-lens. The NVGs in Arma 3 are all dual lens and shadows seem to be drawn as if it was day.

The blur effect I applied could probably use less blur, and more noise. I tried to model the effect from picture pvs143.jpg

Sorry, I did not notice the picture did not upload due to .gif. Have a look at how you fire such a weapon while being prone (as Jejn explained it). And as the backblast is not modelled currently, they might not even worry about it.

A weapon like a Javelin is probably not feasible to fire in such a way
