NWD_Ballistics v1.6

NWD_ScopeFix v2.2

Delete version 1.0 of either mod before installing.

To install, just extract to your ArmA directory and add @NWD_Ballistics or @NWD_ScopeFix to the "-mod=" switch of your ArmA shortcut's "Target" line. If you use multiple mods, the "Target" line should read (for example):

<table border="0" align="center" width="95%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td>Code Sample </td></tr><tr><td id="CODE">"C:\Your ArmA Path\ArmA.exe" -mod=@NWD_Ballistics;@NWD_ScopeFix;@GMJ_SightAdjustment

If you use gmJamez' SightAdjustment mod v0.4beta, installing NWD_Ballistics v1.6 will overwrite the in-game range cards provided by that mod. If you do not use the SightAdjustment mod, you will simply have a harmless extra directory in your ArmA folder. (If you install gmJamez' mod after mine, you will want to replace his range cards with the ones included in the NWD_Ballistics mod's @GMJ_SightAdjustment folder. gmJamez' mod must be installed to this folder in order to function properly.)

<span style='font-size:11pt;line-height:100%'>NWD_Ballistics v1.6</span>

Comparison graphs: Stock Ballistics, NWD_Ballistics v1.6

This mod contains four pbos:

NWD_Ballistics

The supposed difference between the ArmA ballistics and the VBS2 ballistics is ArmA's lack of bullet-specific ballistic coefficients. With this mod, that difference is no longer. When poking around the data files, I found that the "airFriction" parameter can be set per bullet type. After a little research, a little ballistics calculator work, and a whole lot of tweaking, I've managed to create proper exterior ballistics for each small-arms bullet. biggrin_o.gif

Rounds now drop much, much more, particularly 5.56 mm and 5.45 mm rifle bullets. Since damage is dependent on speed in ArmA, that also means that body armor has no problem stopping rounds past 500-600 meters. You'll still take damage, but not much.

In addition to increasing bullet drop, this mod will re-zero all small arms to fix a small issue in ArmA. The "distanceZoomMin/Max" values seemingly do not take sight height into account, and actually set the distance at which bullets will re-cross the plane of the barrel. This is not the same as zero, which is properly defined as the distance at which the bullets will touch or cross the plane of the sights. This ranged from a 3% error for .50 caliber rifles to a 47% error for M16s and M4s with ACOG scopes. In short, weapons should now be zeroed at the distances they were supposed to be zeroed at.

Huge thanks to Kronzky and his portable target range. Without the ballistics tracking in that script, none of this would have been possible.

NWD_RocketBallistics

This pbo includes redone rocket and missile ballistics, including the AT4 and RPG-7.

The M136 AT4 ballistics should be fairly accurate as long as you fire within +/- 10 degrees of horizontal. The RPG-7 is hopeless, but it at least has a realistic muzzle velocity and flight range. The other rockets and missiles have (mostly) realistic thrust times, impulses, and maneuverability.

Javelin missiles will fly my best approximation of the direct-attack profile, climbing out to 25 meters before diving down. Without any script to do this, I had to decrease the missile maneuverability. Unfortunately, this means you will not hit any target closer than 350 m away from you. Javelin launchers aren't present by default in ArmA, so this isn't so terrible.

This mod does not completely fix SACLOS ATGMs. ArmA guides these by placing an invisible target 1500 m in front of your sights and guiding the missile to that. This is a terrible method. You will never hit a moving target at ranges less than 1500 m, and you will never hit any target at ranges greater than 1500 m. At 1500m, the missile just starts to fly in circles around the invisible target.

NWD_RealDispersion

This pbo fixes something that annoyed me to no end: in the stock game, the accuracy of single shots depended on your fire mode! With this mod, single shots with your rifle set to automatic fire will be exactly as accurate as single shots with your rifle set to single fire. The AI will ( should! ) still have increased dispersion when laying automatic fire.

Sniper rifle dispersion is also increased to realistic values, and MP5 and handgun dispersion is reduced to realistic values. Gatling cannon and machine gun dispersions are also reduced to their published values, being 1.5-3 mil for mounted machine guns and 5-8 mil for gatling cannon.

Small arms dispersions are still set to twice what they should be, but that's the way it was before. I am fairly certain that the player gets a 50% dispersion reduction on small arms while prone, and that these settings are correct.

NWD_SightAdjustmentPlugin

This is one of my favorite parts, designed to be used with gmJamez' SightAdjustment mod v0.4beta. It will do nothing if that mod is not installed. This pbo can be used independently of the others, if that's your kind of thing.

If you do have the SightAdjustment mod installed, this pbo will add accurate adjustment ranges and increments to every stock weapon. You will, for example, be able to set the SVD scope to 1000 m (+12.5 mils elevation in the mod) and use the lower chevrons for ranges of 1100, 1200, and 1300m. Assuming, of course, you are also using:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

<span style='font-size:11pt;line-height:100%'>NWD_ScopeFix v2.2</span>

images: M4 scope, M16A4 scope, G36 scope, M107 scope, M24 scope, Mk 12 SPR scope, SVD scope, AKS-74 scope, KSVK scope, M22 binoculars, BPOs binoculars, GLTD II laser designator display, Javelin CLU display

+ optional reticles

This mod replaces all small arms optics with accurate versions, with reticles redrawn from scratch. Version 2 reticles also feature brand new optics models done from scratch, enabling reticle illumination and widescreen support. Reticles will be illuminated between dusk and dawn, whenever lights are on as decided by ArmA. Specific information about each reticle can be found under "extended information" at the image pages linked above. In short, all rangefinders, windage lines, mil dots, and BDC ticks are now at least 95% accurate, and the scope reticles now look (mostly) like they do in real life.

All troops with binoculars will use binoculars with the M22 reticle (the old Steiner M22, not the new Northrop laser safe M22--I don't know what that reticle looks like) by default. If you wish for eastern troops to use binoculars with the BPOs reticle (old Soviet issue, but the new binoculars--whatever they are--probably use the same reticle), you must use one of the optional mods below. To use binoculars for rangefinding, follow the real procedures.

This mod has usurped the ACOG and M19 binocular reticle mods provided with the first release of my ballistics mod.

Options

These are provided in the "extras" folder. To install any of these, move them to the "addons" folder. Don't place two binocular zoom mods in the addons folder at the same time, or the reticles may be incorrectly calibrated.

NWD_G36_NarrowFOV.pbo -- 5° FOV G36 Reticle

This is equal to the real field of view of the G36 3x optic. However, I'm pretty sure the G36 scope is meant to be used with both eyes open. Not only is this impossible in ArmA, but the only aimed mode for the G36 is through the scope; there is no red-dot optic for close range. This is provided mostly in case someone manages to add a G36 with a working red-dot sight, but you can use it if you think the 50% larger field of view I've provided by default is "cheating."

NWD_4xBinoculars.pbo -- 4x M22 and 4x BPOs Binoculars

The default ScopeFix binoculars provide a realistic 7° horizontal FOV on a 4:3 monitor. If that's not enough for you, these provide a realistic 7° FOV vertically as well, although they are only 4x power instead of 5.25x power as in the default mod.

NWD_7xBinoculars.pbo -- 7x M22 <span style='font-size:7pt;line-height:100%'>or 7x widescreen M22</span> and 7x BPOs Binoculars

While the default ScopeFix binoculars provide a realistic 7° horizontal FOV, they are only 5.25x power. The real binoculars are 7x power. If that makes you feel slighted, this mod is for you. As you can see, however, these binoculars have a restricted 5° horizontal FOV in a 4:3 resolution. If you have a widescreen monitor, you may prefer NWD_7xBinoculars_Widescreen.pbo instead. This mod provides nearly the full 7° field of view if you have a 16:9 monitor. You can use this on 4:3 monitors, too, but it doesn't feel like looking through binoculars at all.

NWD_8xGTLDII.pbo -- 8x power GLTD II display

The default laser designator display is correctly proportioned, but is only 5.25x power so it can all fit on the screen. The real optic is 10x power, but that just won't fit. In this mod, the optics portion is zoomed in to 8x power, and fills the whole screen horizontally. The view field is very restricted vertically, so the display can still be shown. It still turned out pretty well, though.

NWD_AK74_PSO1.pbo -- AKS-74 PSO-1 Reticle

The default ScopeFix reticle for the AKS-74 is a PSO-1-1 style 400m rangefinder reticle. This reticle is a PSO-1 style 1000m rangefinder reticle. I don't know what the special reticle the Russian special forces use when they put a PSO on an AK-74 looks like, but I'll bet it looks like one of these. Use whichever you like more. The PSO-1 style reticle has an 800 m chevron in addition to the 100, 400, and 600m chevrons, but it's nearly impossible to hit anything at 800m with an AKS-74.

NWD_M107_M8541.pbo -- M8541 scope for the M107

This reticle would be a better fit on an M40A3, but he Marines eventually intend to use this scope for all of their scoped rifles, including the M107. It's a 3-12x power scope with a very busy reticle that I don't particularly care for. The reticle should be in the first focal plane and therefore vary in size when the scope is zoomed, but that's probably not possible in ArmA. It's calibrated to 12x magnification instead.

NWD_ExtraBinoculars.pbo

This pbo may cause problems in multiplayer, and any mission created with it active will require all clients to be using it. This pbo replaces the M22 binoculars with BPOs binoculars for all Eastern troops. It also adds binoculars to all special forces troops because, by golly, they should have binoculars.

The ScopeFix pbo also includes a PSO-1-1 reticle calibrated for 9x39mm SP-5. This is included because I know for sure that it exists and is used by the Russian army. I can't say that about many PSO reticle designs. The BIS PSO reticle was from a civilian POSP, for instance--not a combat scope.

If anyone wants to use any of these reticles in a mod, go right ahead. I'd like that you give me credit and use the opticsZoom values in my mod, but that's all.

I am still looking into providing binoculars to tank commanders, but it seems that inside and outside optics are forced to have the same magnification.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ISSUES:

#Russian weapons are disadvantaged at long range by these ballistics. That's just the way it is. However, US 5.56 mm is simulated as brand new NATO-spec M855 green tip while 5.45 mm ammo is simulated as poorly-performing 1970's style 7N6 because it's the only cartridge I could find definite data on. The Russian ammo included in the mod is very common ammo, especially for non-Russian armies, so this isn't as outrageous as it may seem. The Russian army may be issuing 7N10 enhanced penetration ammo to front-line units nowadays, so I'll try to implement this ammo if I can find enough data--for parity, if nothing else. I plan to make M995 AP for the M249 and 7N22 AP for the spec-ops AKS-74 some time in the future, too.

#Subsonic rounds are not as accurately simulated as the others. Subsonic 5.45 does exist, and is in fact the only type of ammo that can safely be fired through a suppressed AK-74 in real life, but I couldn't find any information about it except its name (7U1) and weight (80 grains). Subsonic 5.56 is not used by any military. Various subsonic handloads exist, and you can buy very heavy subsonic custom ammo, but no military in the world uses subsonic 5.56. Nonetheless, I've filled the 5.56SD magazines with 75 grain subsonic cartidges. This ammunition should not, by rights, cycle the action of an M4. I think I'll switch it to 100 grain Extreme Shock nonsense in the next version because of that. I'll also see if I can restrict availability of 5.56SD magazines, and give special ops guys a majority of Mk. 262 ammunition instead.

#Damage depends on bullet speed in ArmA. I've tweaked the 5.56mm and 5.45mm rounds with this in mind. They should be one-hit kill at ranges below 50m, about the same damage as stock at 200m, and less damage past that. At 800m, it will take about 8 hits to kill someone unless you hit them in the head (you wouldn't be able to penetrate their body armor, anyway). Damage for other bullets may be a bit off. Subsonic rounds in particular might need some work.

#If you use the ExtraBinoculars mod, you will not be able to call up Russian binoculars with the "b" key; you need to use the action menu. This is a limitation of ArmA, in that the binoculars key will only work with the "Binocular" weapon. It will not work with anything else currently occupying your binoculars slot, such as my "EastBinocular" weapon. You can still use the "next weapon" key to put your binoculars away, so this is only a minor inconvenience.

#Mil dots aren't perfectly sized due to resolution issues, but they're close enough as long as you don't try to subdivide them too accurately. I may be able to make it more accurate by using multiple textures, but the difference probably wouldn't be noticeable except at very high resolutions.

#Night vision field of view settings are ignored by the game. As it is, the stock NVG model is probably the best compromise. Two NVG optics models that take up less of the screen are included in the ScopeFix pbo, but the field of view is far too wide if you zoom the view out. Neither of these models is enabled by default.

#The BPOs reticle is probably too thick. It matches illustrations I have, but illustrations are usually wrong. If anyone has a photo of this reticle, I'll change it in an instant.

#Due to a misunderstanding of the proper optics model dimensions, optics created before v2.2 are 2.4% bigger than intended. This doesn't have an effect in the game, since I'd unknowingly corrected for this error when I calibrated the zoom levels. For future reference, the proper reticle model size is 1.00x0.75 units inside of 5.12x3.84 units of black space.

Current Ballistics Status (v1.5)

While my ballistics are very much more accurate than those provided by default, they are by no means perfect. This is a list of all the ammo covered and all the ammo I'd like to cover, rated by my confidence in the current ballistics. All current ammo in ArmA is covered by this mod, but I plan to add multiple ammo types in each caliber. Numbers in parentheses are for the next version.

Ratings explanation:

1 -- I've spent no time trying to make this accurate, and have just given it a ballpark number

2 -- I have no ballistics data for this ammo, and have generated the ballistics from bullet weight and diameter alone

3 -- I am not confident in my data, or the in-game ballistics vary from that data by up to 5%

4 -- I do not know that my data is accurate, but it is believable and matched in-game

Perfect -- These ones are perfect. biggrin_o.gif These rounds fit known bullet drop compensation sights to better than 99% accuracy

One more thing:

If the in-game range cards aren't enough for you, here's a more detailed set of cheat sheets:

qvcaeyjnag.jpg

http://gallery.filefront.com/NonWonderDog//710805/

As you can see, the SPR and SVD ares now zeroed to 300 meters, and the KSVK to 500 meters. This is for the benefit of people who do not use gmJamez' mod. The range cards for the AK-74, SVD, and KSVK should be as if they were just read off of the real scope. The others might still change in future versions.

Hi NonWounderDog smile_o.gif

This addon sounds really interesting, and i' gonna test it. More realistic we got this game, much better to play smile_o.gif Thanks for all your hard work on this and gmJamez for SightAdjustment smile_o.gif

Good work mate smile_o.gif

No, it's time to practice in MP biggrin_o.gif

In the stock game, all bullets and shells have the same ballistic coefficient. (Ballistic coefficient is a measure of how well a bullet keeps its speed in flight.) That ballistic coefficient is correct for 15 mm ammo only. 5.56 mm bullets don't slow down fast enough. Tank shells probably slow down too fast.

This mod doesn't change tank shells--yet, at least--but it does fix small arms. Rifle bullets will slow down more, and will thus have more drop. This has the side effect of making body armor more realistically effective, and bullets won't do much damage past 500 m. I've tweaked it until the bullets follow the exact trajectories predicted by a ballistics calculator for the real ammo. ArmA's ballistics engine is actually pretty good, it just uses default data for everything. (It doesn't do transonic drag very well, so 9mm is a bit off. Everything else is almost perfect.)

Changes to rockets and missiles are more radical. The M136 AT4 does not fire a rocket anymore, as it is a (single shot) recoilless rifle in real life. The RPG-7 has a realistic 900 m range. TOW missiles now have only 1.5 seconds of thrust, getting up to 310 m/s and coasting for the rest of their flight. Stinger missiles now reach 750 m/s within a couple seconds and stay there until 6 seconds. FFAR rockets have the exact same amount of thrust as they do in real life. Some of this works better than other bits.

But two stupid quest, probably...how to have reticles on M16 and they works only on M4SPR?

Edit----

Stupid question, easy answer...solved

So, what this does is make bullets fly forward the way they should?

Hi smile_o.gif

This make ArmA's ballistics more real. wink_o.gif The way bullet fly, Optics zoom @ zero more correct, bullet speed out from real life, bullet damage out from real data, more real dispersion(that's mean the bullet not allways hit the same place, maybe more to right,left,up or down not so much, but in at longer distance it's more difficult to hit the target at 1000 meters or more.) Just some more practice need smile_o.gif You can use gmJamez "SightAdjustment" to adjust the elevation of your scope/sight and than use NonWounderDog's range card if u use MoA or Bob.Moore's range card if u like to use MIL smile_o.gif

Great addon!

This is now one of the two mods that are always running with my ArmA.

Somehow the Rangecard does not work for me. It seems like it entirely wrong.

For example the Value for M107 at 200m is -7,44.

m107200mjn5.th.jpg

I was aiming for the head. Its misaligned because of the recoil.

The impact can be seen on the concrete...

What am I doing wrong?

Most of the stuff is propably there, but incomplete or hidden.

Now if someone would just fix the ridigilous bounce values of hand grenades.

The more close encounters I have with ArmA the more I miss the chance to hit something with bayonet, rifle or a knife. It is ridigilous that you are completely helpless if you run out of ammo.

Make sure you switch the gmJamez' mod to use MoA as units of measurement. By default (and in your case, as seen on the picture) it uses Mils. Or just use Bob Moore's rangecard as i's designed for Mils.

Btw, how does this mod perform in MP? Will my bullets follow the "right" trajectory, or will they use default ballistic data? What do we need to make this addon work for everyone on the server? do we need to install it on the server itself or just all the clients?

Oh, and thanks for the hard work smile_o.gif

HI smile_o.gif

You need the new fixed sightadjustment from gmJamez. His last version v.0.2 have not the lasted fix sad_o.gif So u have to change it by your self from page 5 and 7 on this topic : http://www.flashpoint1985.com/cgi-bin....t=65706

Next release will have those fix included i hope smile_o.gif I have the fixed version, but not sure if i can upload it without gmJamez premission confused_o.gif

So those rang card NonWounderDog has uploaded it's meant for the fixed version.

Hi smile_o.gif

The AI will kill you with only one shoot, max 1800 meters. So now u need to hide, he he Just kidding biggrin_o.gif

Not sure how AI will handle this, but the ballistic data will be the same for them too. Bullet speed, dispersion, aiDispersionCoefX, aiDispersionCoefY, those values will be the same for them too smile_o.gif

Not sure how AI will handle this, but the ballistic data will be the same for them too. Bullet speed, dispersion, aiDispersionCoefX, aiDispersionCoefY, those values will be the same for them too smile_o.gif

Rgr, guess I will suck it & see smile_o.gif

What about "external" weapons from different packs etc? As I understand, this mod changes only vanilla BI ammo configs, so if a user-created weapon uses its own ammo, it will not be affected by this mod, right? If so, maybe the author should contact the developers of upcoming weaponpacks and gently demonstrate them how cool it is to use real ballistc data biggrin_o.gif

Perhaps when JAM gets sorted out this can be incorporated, or at least a parallel release/setup option.

The RPG-7 has a realistic 900 m range.

Apparently most RPG-7 rockets self-destruct after 5 sec flight, and that is about 900m out..
