Hey, loving the new Ratnik AK's in the latest dev build, actually got an audible gasp out of me.

 

Hehe nice to hear.

I'll look into it. Need to see if I can bend the 5.45 magazine into shape, it worked reasonably well with the AK-19 mag.

Also whether we may see the carbine variants for each Ratnik AK in the future?  

 

No idea if that is going to be in the maintenance update, but yeah, carbines are planned, as is versions with the older (but cooler looking) furniture, and probably RPK-16.

While we're at the topic of magazines - the AR-15 mags are not sitting deep enough in the mag well (especially noticeable with the PMAG reinforcement ribs not being nowhere near the receiver)

 

EDiT: Russian Army vertical grip for AK-12 and modified AK-74M is the 6Ch64 (6Ч64) not the collapsing one that was used by some SF units as private purchase before stubby grips became the new gucchi thing.

Is there a ticket for that?

EDiT: just a small sidenote - "30rd STANAG L85 mag" could be renamed to "30rd HK steel mag" (it's the same one from the HK416s).

Thanks. Grip should be easy enough to exchange. I'll see what to do about the magazines.

Just to mention (at least on my system), after installing the new Oct 1.17 Terrains_Core update,  I'm getting  very annoying 'texture rendering' problems with the new re textured 'Dum_mesto2' house.  It wouldn't be a big issue at all if it wasn't such a common building, but it happens to be a 'very common' building on many Arma terrains old and new, so as this was a 'game breaker' I had to replace the the entire 'cup_terrains_ca_buildings' pbo with the previous one from version 1.16 to solve the problem. Didn't have any problems with any of the other re-textured buildings or the new added buildings in version 1.17, only the 'Dum_mesto2' house.

This is the wrong thread, there is an extra thread for the terrains. Also, what do you mean with "annoying texture rendering problems"?

My apologies, I didn't realize there was a thread for CUP terrains, but since you asked and since we're here already, if it's all right I thought I would try to explain more clearly this "texture rendering" problem with this new re-tex 'dum-mesto2' house, not so much 'texture pop-in' because that would imply the textures load in slowly which is not the case, the case is the textures of this building completely lose their detail at a distance of about 150m or more, becoming very 'low-poly' and it's very obvious when this happens especially if flying and 'very annoying'. It's a similar problem I've encountered  many times before using  assets from older A1 and A2 mods such as Ensk Objects 2.0 for example, certain parts of the objects in the mod will lose texture detail or even disappear at a certain distance, that's not a big issue with these editor placed objects, you simply don't use them. However, in the case of the 'dum-mesto2' house , the problem exists on probably dozens and dozens of Arma terrains with CUP Terrains Core dependency which use this house, from lets say Sahrani onwards making it a 'game-breaker'. Of course it could just be my system, but it is strange that no other CUP building seems to have this problem including the new re-tex 'dum_olezlina_open' building which appears to be identical to the 'dum-mesto2' house. I've linked two photos and hopefully they are clear enough to show you the problem. If you could look into it some time and if you discover anything like I've described, do let me know. Thanks.

Our local terrain expert Ben has taken a look, should be fixed when Terrains update again.

Hello, first time poster here on the Bohemia forums!

My friend and I noticed that there is no way to add the ammunition for the Panzerfaust 3 (and Bunkerfaust 3) into ammunition boxes, or vehicles. The only solution we've found so far is letting our players grab the ammunition from a virtual arsenal, which has it's own share of problems (like people playing Barbie, or deleting magazines/items when the arsenal is limited/whitelisted). I've tried smacking in the rounds through the addItemCargo and addItemCargoGlobal-script commands, which does nothing. You cannot find the ammunition for the launchers in the equipment storage of any vehicle or ammobox, nor can you add it. You cannot spawn a character with Pzf 3 ammunition in his backpack, as the rounds are deleted from the backpack upon scenario initialization.
The Pzf 3 can be reloaded, and you can switch between ammo types before firing, but it's set as a disposable launcher unless if you tick off the CBA settings "Replace disposable launcher" and "drop used disposable launcher". The Pzf 3 should be able to be reloaded. Bug, or intended feature?


. Will there be a fix for this issue in the near future?

It's an intended feature. The Panzerfaust cannot be reloaded, the only thing you can do (in reality) is to remove the firing device/grip and attach it to a different unit. However, the firing device is only a fraction of the weight/volume of the weapon, so there is no point in implementing this feature, as it basically boils down to carrying a second Panzerfaust along. If we would have made it reloadable, the ammo would be equally heavy as the weapon itself is now.

You should be able to load a PzF 3 (the complete launcher) into a backpack. EDIT: There seems to be a pull request for CBA that will turn ammo into launchers if they fit the backpack



In reality, you can opt to extend or retract the spike on the shot, but there is no way to model this in Arma except for scripting, which we will always avoid in CUP if possible. But there is no way to reload a Panzerfaust, it's a disposable weapon with a (small) detachable fire control unit.

 

Anti-Tank weapons in Arma are generally overpowered. It usually takes much longer to reload, or make ready, any kind of anti-tank weapon. Sad to say it, but Dragon Rising did that part better (and pretty much everything else worse).

I know this isn't an ideal solution. But as it is now, the PzF 3 has one of the most potent warheads in all of Arma, and making it simply reloadable, disregarding the reality of it, would make it way too powerful, especially considering AI using it - they can usually fire shot after shot with reloadable launchers.

CUPDATE TIME


Update 1.17.1 released.


We're in the process of releasing a hotfix/service update to our latest CUPDATE. 1.17.1 contains a couple of fixes, most notably for the new ACE cookoff, but also a couple of new toys.

  • A complete set of new AK-12 (the real one, not the prototype), AK-15 and AK-19 rifles for the Russian faction, in a variety of camos and configurations (models/textures by Alwarren)
  • A new UZI, courtesy of Gwynbleidd, both for the Rifle slot as well as the handgun slot.
  • Fixes for ACE cookoff parameters
  • Another bunch of fixes that are all detailed in the changelog.

As we speak, the Web Site has already been updated with the new files, and Workshop will follow in a couple of minutes.

 

Enjoy, and we wish all Arma players a Happy New Year!

Ah yes, we were expecting the new Kalashnikovs, very good!

 

Guys over the pond will also probably appreciate the 19 variant these days... *shit-eating grin emoji*
