[WIP] X39s Medical System 2 (XMS2)

Recommended Posts

@X39

Just curious about the hearing/deafness mechanic. Honestly, it's the feature I disliked the most out of XM1. I just think it's a dull binary mechanic; you either wear them and don't go deaf or don't and you do. There's no interesting game mechanic here. Yeah it could be argued that it's there for 'realism' and not gameplay, but in real life you'd try cover your ears and move away if possible - and you wouldn't just stand still go deaf at an extremely fast linear rate.

I don't know how much you can tinker with the Arma sound engine, so my suggestions may not be technically feasible. But here goes...

A better game mechanic would be to make the player choose when to wear earplugs. In real life earplugs will cause a drop in volume and make it harder to tell direction of sounds. The drop in volume is not linear, it will cut out higher frequencies more.

So when the ear plugs are in:

20-40dB reduction in volume

Adjust EQ to pull down frequencies above 1kHz

Reduce stereo width

This would make it a challenge to hear enemy direction or vehicle movement. You'd have to take the ear plugs out to get a good listen.

As for deafness, in real life you'd still be able to feel loud sounds like heavy machinegun fire or explosions (it's air pressure). Loud sounds should cause pain and a huge amount of disorientation.

Reduce the volume massively

Drop the EQ sharply after 160 Hz

Reduce stereo width completely (should be pretty much mono)

Anyhoo, not sure if any of this is possible, but I thought I'd throw the idea out there in case any of it can stick.

That's the problem right there, most people wouldn't just stand up and move away without exposing themselves to enemy gunfire...and then consider the gunner him or herself firing the weapon, don't they need ear protection?

On a medical mod, thinking about eye protection and ear protection in a game are sometimes just cosmetic afterthoughts, and yes, sometimes just for immersion, but they DO have a place in the overall body systems that may/may not be represented.

*MUHAAHHAHAHA *

Searching willed slaves for scripting Evildancingbanana.gif

so if youre interested in working on XMS2 please read the following spoiler (otherwise ignore it :F)

You got experience in SQF/ArmA vehicle configs? (Talking about modding! Not putting premade scripts together)

You want to be part of the XMS2 developer team?

You are willed to work on assigned tickets?

You got plenty of time?

Then send a pn to me with some representation of your current SQF skills (c/c++ & experience with OpenAL is also required) (for example: An existing mod) and you could become a part of the team behind XMS2 (yep ^^ TEAM :F but ... only 1 coder which is me ...)

What would be your tasks?

- Create / improve UIs

- Debug and fix XMS2

- Maintain XMedSys (yep! Also this is included in being part of the XMS2)

- Implement new features

- Do general mod support

- Other stuff which is not listed here

Is it possible to add a Medevac tent (small and large) the small can be deployed in the field and has to be a backpack so it can loaded in vehicles. Small one only healing you to limited amount (like bring back from death then medic can heal) and a large(same as vehicle healing 100%) This can only be added to missions and is not deployable. That way if a player dies, instead of respawning back at base after death, he can be moved to medical tent in field and revived. Imo would even be cool to only use defib in medical tents and CPR in field.

there are plans to solve the thing with the medevac :F

dont worry

they are just not rly plans and more some concepts ... (need to see how far it is possible to do what i want to have ^^)

some file size stats from windows ^^:

Some update for you guys

First of all a new screenshot as i started to model even more stuff in XMS2:

600x300.resizedimage

(might will be added to XMedSys with next patch)

then the important part :F

i see a chance to start the open alpha of XMS2 (check roadmap: http://unitedtacticalforces.de/XMS2/Roadmap.png to see the plan) to get larger feedback then i get currently

due this, the alpha comes to its finals (last stuff of implementation base will be done in next few weeks) and i can start with doing the serious simulation stuff soon (things like blocked airways are also part of the simulation ^^)

also im still searching ACTIVE testers (not once a month or "hey just lets get in as tester to check the current state"!) so if youre REALLY interested send me your application

kindly regards

X39, I thought I was crazy covering hundreds of ballistics, but this is insane, you are going to make the ACE Medical System look like a chump if you successfully make this happen.

im working pretty hard to realize it :F

but i could use more support on the coding side ...

its horrible to see when im bussy more or less the entire week (rl, etc) there is nearly 0 progress done(testing is also progress but creates more work as i need to fix the stuff :F) (especially because XMS2 is not only the scripting ... it also needs to be organized even if only im working on it)

but all people which are connected to XMS2 in any way are helping whereever they can which makes me kinda happy :F


HELP WANTED

asking again

searching for:

- Programmers (SQF, Config stuff, ...)

- Artists (Models, Textures, UIs, ...)

- QA people (Testing, Support, ...)


Progress report

This time i cannot show you anything at all : /

most changes will be behind the visible stuff this time (things like moving 2000000000000000 files from a to b, renaming variables, etc.)

i thought about solutions for various problems/implementations (how to create an "animationProtector", how to make bleeding visible in the UI, what should the inVehicle medical ui look like, ...) and did not implemented one of them yet ...( yeah ... bussy dev :F as said)

also i need to repeat myself (not even sure if i noted anywhere official yet but ... yeah)

XMS2 is comming closer to the public alpha (check roadmap: http://unitedtacticalforces.de/XMS2/Roadmap.png )

so some words to the public alpha about what you have to expect

and what not :F

Basically you will be able to use XMS2 just like XMedSys right now for example (but XMS2 wont be tweaked in any way)

but most simulation stuff wont be implemented as there is MUCH stuff still left to do (its an alpha :F what would you else expect then ^^)

so what is the public alpha for?

it will be simply done to give you finnally something else in your hands but my stupid posts full of spelling mistakes (and even worse grammar shit :F) + it will give me the ability to get large community feedback (so that i might can change the interface (for example) so that its easier to understand)

kindly regards

I believe it has something to do with capital letters. Linux hates capital letters.
