the tanks seem to have a problem:

when you set them with slow speed, they won't move

 

I had this problem also, in a big way in my dynamic mission.  Noticed that a specific WW2 vehicle type was getting stuck 100% of the time.  If I recall correctly, was trying to solve this specifically with a FOW vehicle.  Spent a bunch of time investigating, and to my surprise pinned this down to the lowering of speed (via limitSpeed and/or forceSpeed).  In the case of my mission, I was lowering vehicle speed mission-wide dynamically based on the amount of territory the enemy took.  Removing speed lowering unstuck that particular vehicle type.  Now curious, I removed speed lowering mission-wide.

 

The biggest surprise was this:  Suddenly I noticed far fewer instances of mysteriously stuck vehicles in my mission.  (This included certain IFA3 vehicles too if I recall correctly.)  Suddenly vehicles were getting to their destinations literally most of the time.  Removing that "speed lowering" improved the fun factor of my mission by at least a factor of 3, not kidding at all.  (The downside is now putting up with the ridiculous acceleration to top speed of the those small FOW halftracks.)

 

The funny thing is, for literally years I blamed all those stuck vehicles on BIS's path-finding overhaul.  And in my case so much sticking was simply related to speed lowering.  Anyhow, please everyone be very careful when lowering vehicle speed or you will probably run into this stuck vehicles too.  It doesn't take much speed lowering at all to stick the susceptible types.

 

Also btw- I have overcome most of my BIS pathfinding issues.  Should do a write-up on the various stuck remedies I employ (none of which involve teleporting the vehicle).  I believe I have enough insight into that horrible bug where AI drivers can't turn around and drive toward a WP behind them, to where BIS could actually fix it.  (Would want to pull all the stops though and create a formal detailed report with history, screenshots, etc like that excellent "17 years old bug in A3 - 'A fallen static objects' geometries bug'" thread, which resulted in BIS finally fixing that long-standing nightmare issue.)

 

@Wiki Curious if you pinned your particular problem down to certain vehicles types?

we are in the process of fixing this. it turns out the default slow and normal speed factors for physx are no good

@Gunter Severloh what would be a "winter version" of tank crew? or you just suggest dummy classes that are the same?

 

@Wiki 

1) the missions will be revised. Jaki hasnt had time in recent weeks unfortunately.

2) see above

3) this is an effect of making AI also use HE ammo - we are working on a workaround to the workaround to avoid that AI behavior

 

@warflak we do have terrains in the pipeline for Ostfront indeed, but has to be seen if they will be ready in time

Kju, for the panzer crew winter uniforms my suggestion is to load up GEIST-A3 LITE https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=773314286

Joarius has i think the historically accurate winter uniforms for both Soviet, and German Tank crews in there.

You can see them in virtual arsenal.

Dear IFA3 followers,

 

today we start our promotion campaign about our upcoming update: Red devils & Desert Rats.

 

We will try to post one new picture everyday until the release, or a few days prior it. Those pics will showcase the upcoming content.

 

Today, DAK units are resupplying their Flak 36 next to El Alamein train station. Tigers tanks are waiting to be dismounted from their wagon as the frontline is getting closer and closer.

 

New content:

  • Flak 36 shield
  • DAK shorts uniform
  • Desert tiger reskin without zimmerit
  • El Alamein map by swurvin

Desert units in Arma3 at last and everything looks SO GREAT! 

 

 Just checking: does the Red Devils update include LRRP armed Jeeps and Chevrolet lorries? I’m sure I read something about these in the thread a few months back, but can’t find the post anymore. Please let me know whether I imagined the whole thing 😛

Finally, British reinforcement and tea supplies have arrived to El Alamein. That will certainly boost up morale in men.

Such an amazing mod! Wait, is the officer holding the pistol with one hand an animation or a real modification? I would love to see units in arma 3 one handing their pistols. And also, i know this has been asked a lot of times already but since you're covering the African campaign, might as well ask again, how close are we to seeing Italian units in IFA 3? More power to you guys! 🙂

Are you guys going to phase the update for the red devils and desert rats or is it all going to be in one, out of curiosity?
