  • Cool Things In .96

    python
    Added option to define server time limit in the config files, which will overwrite the common time limit
    Added back German and Russian AT kit request
    Added back UAV availability
    Updated commander rally point to require 6 team members close, and only one of them needing to be a squad leader
    Decreased range between insurgency caches to be 200m instead of 400m
    Added spawn block to prevent accidental spawning. You need to click "done" when you want to spawn.
    No excuse to NOT use the CO rally now peeps. You only need 1 full squad nearby and no more 'SL dancing'. Also like the Time Limit adjustments wouldn't mind seeing TG turn the limit to 3-2:30 hours. Spawn block will take some getting used to but will help out in the long run.

    Soldiers
    Updated German soldier textures
    Increased soldier movement speed
    Increased minimum energy required to sprint
    Decreased sprint recharge time
    Decreased soldier movement acceleration time to let momentum impact more
    This will potentially change the game a lot. I like the decrease in acceleration a lot and the decreased recharge time in theory.

    Vehicles
    Added prbot2 spectator camera vehicle with a "steadicam" style control mechanism (All)
    Added Panther CLV (with desert and woodland specific models) (GB)
    Added Kiowa with AGM114 Hellfire rack (US Army)
    Added MLVW truck (CF)
    Added Stryker interior (US Army)
    Added new canvas to MEC, MIL and RU logistic trucks
    Added rearview camera to Gary/Big Red trucks
    Added missing horn to VN3
    Added minor explosion damage to helicopter .50 cal weapons
    Updated all GB ground vehicles woodland camouflage
    Updated LOD switching distances on various vehicles
    Updated various civilian vehicle cameras
    Updated all tank cameras
    Updated all amphibious vehicle water speeds
    Updated BMP-3 engine and interior texture
    Updated Puma IFV coaxial ammo layout to 2x1000 rds and increased reload time
    Increased number of flares in transport choppers to 60
    Increased mass of all logistic trucks
    Increased BRDM-2, BTR-60/80 and Stryker number of magazines by 1
    Increased Puma IFV armor
    Decreased total armor on nearly all helicopters (except scout helicopters)
    Decreased HMMWV series, M35, and Ural truck scales
    Removed Zeev jeep
    A lot of game changing updates here ^^, digging the reduced helo health!

            The best change for me: "Can't spawn unless done has been pressed". Finally no more ragging as SL over guys who keep spawning in. AAAHHH sooo satisfying.

              It all seems pretty good to me.

              I didnt see anything about general optimization though. For all those people who ran the game perfectly in .85 but now seem to struggle. Perhaps its that all these updates together optimize the entire mod? Or the updating of the maps include optimization to run them more smoothly.

              Either way, its gonna be a blast. But heres hoping ill be back to maxed settings again.

                    It's a rally point that the commander places that anyone on that team can use to spawn on.

                        It is best used during attacks and in my experience serves as an analogue to a Field HQ. It has its limits certainly... but it is really awesome when tied with a wonderful assault because you can keep putting boots on the ground without worry of preparing a supply line prior.

                          very neat. I'm digging the Hellfire addition to the Kiowa.

                            I can't see how they thought it practical to have the commander rally yet have the UAV accessible only by the UAV trailer.

                            It literally means to be ultimately effective, the commander has to be in two places at once, which is just stupid.
                            Its the decisions you make, when you have no time to make them, that define who you are.

                              Or it means the commander has to prioritize. Some command from the rear, some from the front.

                              Personally, I can command from the top, the bottom, the backseat, the frontseat; it really doesn't matter to me.
