Hands are still static

Recommended Posts

I'm a bit disapointed to see that older games like H&D2 and BF2 still beat ArmA2 when it comes to vehicles. What I'm talking about is things like mounted weapons and how the character holds them. For example, I posted this ages ago, a vehicle mounted weapon in H&D2:

Next is vehicle steering:

See how an older game like H&D2 handles this? Like, tons better than ArmA and probably ArmA2?

I think it kinda sucks that nothing is being done in this department.

BF2 also handles this pretty well, much in a similar manner:

You can see the gunner actually ducking.

So I'm hoping this might be improved. I think I'd be great to see it improved. But, eh, what the hell do I know, right.

I kinda agree, but Arma 1 DOES HAVE vehicle steering, and the way it applies to ground. it's just not very visible until you test it.

I'm talking about the driver turning his hands while turning the wheel.

Hidden & Dangerous 2 is built with the driving model of Mafia, which makes it an excellent drive next to being a great tactical shooter.

Armed Assault 2 needs something like ragdoll physics for operators and passengers of vehicles and animated arms for steering.

But it also needs a good driving model incl. proper oversteer, understeer, suspensions and tyre dynamics.

Arma and even Ofp at his time had outdated animation, hope this will be fixed in Arma2 .. thumbs-up.gif

i'd also like to see LOTS of improved stuff like animations,

damage model, transitions, effects, etc, etc,...

but i think the problem is that BIS has a relatively small team

of developers compared to many of the "bigshot" companies

and therefore it's simply impossible for them to produce all

those superficial details that these uber-budget games get.

we'll probably see many of them in flashpoint 2 but then that's

likely going to be a dumbed down experience for the

mainstream console-crowd.

real simulations are a niche-market even on pc and we can all

be glad that there even is a company like BIS that keeps

making games like these. but with lower budget come lower

standards and priorites have to be set.

personally i hope they concentrate on the most important

things first, like smooth performance and good/working ai.

ArmA 2 need better hand animations while driving or flying a vehicle...
