For the love of god, that can be said friendlier...

Thanks anyway, didn't have the correct naming.

Hi, this is a very good idea but we have a few questions:

- The turning radius / circle of the "Ifrit". Its too large. Not useable.

- The tanks are not strong enough. They can't climp like in the reality.

Are you going to change this?

Already noticed the first thing, and it was fixed. Had a totally wrong number for turnCoef.

The second thing will be possibly fixed within the next game-updates. I worked together with zGuba (big kudos for you!!!!!) and he found out what the problem his. He made an interim solution until it is fixed in the game engine itself.

Expect an hotfix which also includes an update of the testing ground later this day.

Using it through Playwith Six and the vehicle spawners aren't working. the menu doesn't even show up.

Not running any other mod alongside it just refined vehicles.

any idea what could be the problem?

Hello RedPheonix, I have downloaded your mod but notice that there is 2 versions available. Can you tell me the difference between the two before i install.

Thank you.

The one called _Alt simply uses the vanilla vehicles name whereas the one without _alt uses the real names.

Same here, but only with alt version.

Yeah, don't mind that, it is a script I am working on with Lappihuan. It's simply a script which adds smoke trails to the MD500 of the Altis Aerobatic Team.

Not quite functional, but will be in future.

Just thought that I had quoted that out....

Regarding a post comment on Armaholic:

2014-01-26 18:13 Posted by M4builder: I tried out all the vehicles and it seems the Merkava 120 leans to one side and very, very sluggishly tries to turn and turning tracked vehicles seems to not be very responsive to a release of controls. Other that that, I like the changes made to the vehicles.

Yes, this is as it is. I'm planning on giving a little more power to the steering, but until the next big update with fixed tanks (try them in the current dev-built, if you haven't done so yet) we have to live with that sluggish behavior.

Gday RedPhoenix. Thanks so much for this mod, the difference it makes to the "arcadish" default vehicle handling is absolutely incredible.

Thanks! Hearing this from one of A3s top-notch modders makes me proud.

If you have any wishes or concerns with the mod, let me Know. I am trying constantly to push this mod to its limits.

Yeah, I already saw that. I have to check the dev-built how they added it (possibly just a coef or something)

Could someone explain linear steering and would it be possible to see it in the next Refined Vehicles version ?

It's that the same amount you steer with a controller it steers ingame.

It will not be in the next update hence it comes before the next Arma3 vanilla stable-update.But after this feature is implemented into the stable built, I will use it as well.
