First of all, it is not perfect, but we are getting better ;)
Secondly, our vehicles are never meant to be played with AI, we are focusing on coop content. This means, some functions may not work with AI

Suggestion for the winter camo variant:

maybe you can addept to the shades of the winter dingo by stevoo4552 http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=28054

and the winter Fennek by grendel http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=24962

all other camos fit well in the list of Bundeswehr vehicles:

Hi! A few problems I've noticed with the Marder 1A5 so far:

-It seems even if a commander is in the vehicle, other players or AI can still access the turned out "gunner" seat. With some AI this is unavoidable, and a turned out commander will be inside an AI.

-Commander has no control over the infantry ramp

-Commander has no control over countermeasures

-AI infantry will not board the vehicle if the ramp is closed (they simply ignore the order instead of opening the ramp, the crew does nothing about this either)

-The Marder is unable to be spawned from certain vehicle lists (it works in Eden and Zeus, but I can't find it in things like virtual vehicle spawners or Proving Grounds.)

-The steering is too sensitive for an AI driver

 

Also a few other notes:

-The commander has nothing on the interface to indicate where his optic is looking

-AI infantry will open the ramp to exit the vehicle, but not to enter. When they do this, the ramp remains open even after they have all disembarked. The commander then has to switch to the driver's seat to close it. If the infantry board the vehicle again, they will not close the ramp.

-The explosion radius on the HEI shells seems quite large, although it may be that way in reality, I'm not really sure. It just feels too easy to kill enemy infantry. :smiley-punched:

-You can't drag and drop infantry into the three turn-out seats in the rear when using the Eden editor

-The Milan seems to reload very quickly, though again it might be that way in reality, I'm not really sure

-AI gunner refuses to target helicopters? (Probably Bohemia's fault but it's worth looking into)

 

This vehicle is incredible and I really can't wait to see what it will be like once you have perfected it to your liking. I really hope all of the things I listed will be fixed. Thank you for this beautiful Marder! You have no idea how long I was waiting for this, or how excited I was when I heard about this. Much love <3

Hey there, thanks for the compliment

But first of all, the Marder was never intended to work with AI. So it was never really testet with AI.

 

-It seems even if a commander is in the vehicle, other players or AI can still access the turned out "gunner" seat. With some AI this is unavoidable, and a turned out commander will be inside an AI.
    - Never happend to me, will have a look at the problem
-Commander has no control over the infantry ramp
    - This is because he has no control over the ramp in RL
-Commander has no control over countermeasures
    - Gunner has the control (In RL both can fire them)
-AI infantry will not board the vehicle if the ramp is closed (they simply ignore the order instead of opening the ramp, the crew does nothing about this either)
    - This is because the cargo and the FFV-seats are locked when ramp is closed
-The Marder is unable to be spawned from certain vehicle lists (it works in Eden and Zeus, but I can't find it in things like virtual vehicle spawners or Proving Grounds.)
    - Was never intended to do so
-The steering is too sensitive for an AI driver
    - As i said, it was made for coop missions with human players

Also a few other notes:
-The commander has nothing on the interface to indicate where his optic is looking
    - Yes, but I am not really into making this RCS stuff, at the moment
-AI infantry will open the ramp to exit the vehicle, but not to enter. When they do this, the ramp remains open even after they have all disembarked. The commander then has to switch to the driver's seat to close it. If the infantry board the vehicle again, they will not close the ramp.
    - This is because when somebody from cargo or FFV positions get out of the vehicle the animation starts. There is no function to check if everybody is out and then close the ramp. My intention was, only driver an rear FFV Position can open and close (because of RL)
-The explosion radius on the HEI shells seems quite large, although it may be that way in reality, I'm not really sure. It just feels too easy to kill enemy infantry. :smiley-punched:
    - This is correct, tweaked the radius a bit. Will have a look maby it's too much.
-You can't drag and drop infantry into the three turn-out seats in the rear when using the Eden editor
    - This is because the cargo and the FFV-seats are locked when ramp is closed
-The Milan seems to reload very quickly, though again it might be that way in reality, I'm not really sure
    - I think it is possible to reload it that fast. https://youtu.be/duWGxvwVFuY?t=63 take a look how fast they can mount the milan.
-AI gunner refuses to target helicopters? (Probably Bohemia's fault but it's worth looking into)
    - Testet, and it worked for me. AI gunner shoots at chopper.

Hey Redd,

Absolutely awesome IFV you got there. Intense love for details, amazing interior.

One thing I've noticed is you can either turn on the front blackout lights OR the rear ones, not both at once. Once you turn on one of them the action to switch on the other disappears. This can't be intended, can it?

I'm so looking forward to the Wiesel and hope you may eventually do the Tpz Fuchs you mentioned at previous times :)

Thanks for your contribution! Best regards,

Thanks runy888

This is how it works, you only can turn one at the same time. That was my intetion. It is like german b.o. light step 1 and step 2. Of course there is a third step where front and back lights are on at the same time. i can also make the third step if you wish

Hah okay didn't know that, I just don't get the point in taking away that kind of freedom from the driver. If you drive in an armored convoy you should be able to warn vehicles infront of you and behind you as well to not collide. It's not like this is a super critical matter just something that came to my attention

Thanks for the response.

 

Is it possible that you could try to make it work a little better for the AI or in singleplayer? I really love this vehicle but it is incredibly difficult to use in its current state. I hope you understand. Thanks again for the great work!

Do you made this Model? Or is this ported from Arma 2? It looks like the one from BW Mod A2.

Working at the moment on rebuilding the Geometry, GeometryPhysX and FireGeometry LOD to fix the bug, where the crew can get killed by small arms from outside of the vehicle.
