  1. This particular problem goes way beyond that, when 10 mag dumps don't drop a target with some 5.56mm rounds, others drop them in 3 shots with different kinds of 5.56mm, most 5.45x39mm and 7.62x39mm only take a few rounds etc. (From what I understand the version of the armor specified is supposed to have a 4+mm thick steel plate on the front and a titanium plate on the back, so I would except rounds below a certain power level to be pretty much completely inefficient against it too.) I have now "fixed" the issue by adding the Mk262 Mod 1 STANAG mag that was effective to our arsenal, meaning we can use the 5.56 guns we have available against the Russians. Actually I kinda feel like we've gotten sidetracked from the original question (though it was an interesting rabbit hole): Is there a way I can edit the mods/make custom versions to change what gear is available etc.?
  2. Probably a good idea to also test with and without ACE Medical turned on at some point. The bullets with hit of over 9 are causing wounds and dropping the target, while the ones with 9 or under are only causing minor, medium and major bruises and contusions. 200+ major bruises should probably do more than just hurt a bit.
  3. More testing, M16A2 this time. Same settings as before, with ACE ballistics on. Test 1: M16A2 UK3CB_M16A2 30Rnd STANAG M855 (No Tracer) UK3CB_M16_30rnd_556x45 (3CB) 5.56mm UK3CB_556x45_Ball_Red Result: Mag dump, no effect Test 2: M16A2 UK3CB_M16A2 30Rnd STANAG M855 rhs_mag_30Rnd_556x45_M855_Stanag (RHS) M855 rhs_ammo_556x45_M855_Ball Result: Mag dump, no effect Test 3: M16A2 UK3CB_M16A2 30Rnd STANAG M855A1 rhs_mag_30Rnd_556x45_M855A1_Stanag (RHS) M855A1 EPR rhs_ammo_556x45_M855A1_Ball Result: Mag dump, no effect Test 4: M16A2 UK3CB_M16A2 5.56 mm 30Rnd Reload Tracer (Yellow) Mag 30Rnd_556x45_Stanag (Bohemia) B_556x45_Ball Result: Mag dump, no effect Test 5: M16A2 UK3CB_M16A2 5.56 mm 30Rnd Mag (M995 AP) ACE_30Rnd_556x45_Stanag_M995_AP_mag 5.56 mm AP ACE_556x45_Ball_M995_AP Result: Mag dump, no effect. Test 6: M16A2 UK3CB_M16A2 20Rnd STANAG Mk262 Mod 1 rhs_mag_20Rnd_556x45_Mk262_Stanag Mk262 rhs_ammo_556x45_Mk262_Ball Result: 3 shots to drop a target EDIT: Only semi-consistent thing I've noticed so far, is that you need to have a "hit" value of over 9 on the bullet to get through. The 57-N-231 89, which works well, is hit 9.8, many of the 5.45x39mm rounds on the AK-74 guns that work are even over 10, while the 57-N-231 that doesn't work is 8.5, most of the 5.56x45mm rounds are 9, except for the RHS Mk262 Mod 1, which is 10.3 and can penetrate the armor (ACE Mk262 is 9, and doesn't work).
  4. Massive thanks for the help! You can see in the video above which ammo I used for my initial testing. I'll quickly double check my AK-47/AKMN ammo results and post them here for reference. EDIT: Using the IDs so that we can be certain which things are actually being used: Armor 6B5-19, no uniform. ACE Ballistics on, with barrel length and bullet trace effect on, muzzle velocity variation and ammo temperature simulation off. Test 1: AKMN rhs_weap_akmn 30rnd AKM Bakelite 57-N-231 rhs_30Rnd_762x39mm_bakelite (RHS) 57-N-231 rhs_B_762x39_Ball Result: 2 mags dumped, no effect (using ACE Medical I only see lots of bruises). Test 2: AKMN rhs_weap_akmn 7.62mm 30rnd AK-12 Mag 30Rnd_762x39_AK12_Mag_F (Bohemia) Ball with reload tracer B_762x39_Ball_Green_F Result: 3 shots to drop a target Test 3: AKMN rhs_weap_akmn 75Rnd RPK 57-N-231 rhs_75Rnd_762x39mm (RHS) 57-N-231 rhs_B_762x39_Ball Result: Full mag dump, no effect Test 4: AKMN rhs_weap_akmn 75Rnd RPK 57-N-231 (2x Green Tracer) UK3CB_RPK_75rnd_762x39_G (3CB) 7.62mm with reload tracer UK3CB_762x39_Ball_Green Result: 3 shots to drop a target Repeated test with ACE Advanced ballistics turned off, same results. Doesn't seem to be that one causing the issue. EDIT2: Another quick test, rhs_B_762x39_Ball_89 drops a target with 3-10 shots (high variance). Wonder what the difference between that and the normal rhs_B_762x39_Ball_89 is...
  5. Barrel length might have helped marginally? The AP 5.56x45mm rounds now can drop a guy after like 15-20 shots. Testing around, it would appear that magazines/ammo types by ACE (didn't think it should add ammo, but it said so in the bottom for one of them...), Bohemia or 3CB are more likely to work, mostly at least, and ammo added by RHS mods doesn't. Like AKMN with an RHS mag doesn't kill anyone, but 3CB mag with the same claimed bullet type, or a basic Bohemia mag will.
  6. Yes, though with a few options turned off, lemme check. Also tested the AKMN with standard 7.62x39mm ball, same result as the 5.56x45mm guns, i.e. almost no effect. SCAR-H was 3 shots with ball and 2-3 with AP, SVDM was 3 with ball and 2 with AP. EDIT: In the ACE Advanced Ballistics options I've turned off Muzzle Velocity Variation and Ammo Temperature Simulation. The rest are on. Couldn't find anything else that could make armor wonky elsewhere either.

So barrel length, eh? Will try.
  7. On second thought it might be more of an issue with the ammo/armor behavior, because I just tested things in the virtual armory and some 300 M16 rounds, split 50/50 between ball and AP ammo, didn't drop a guy wearing the 6B5-19 vest, while half a dozen rounds from an AK-74 with ball ammo dropped them, and 2-3 AK-74 AP rounds were also enough. The M16 works just fine against the weaker PASG vest of the US forces.
  8. Hello, I've been playing Antistasi (the latest community edition) with a fair few of the faction mods included with some friends of mine, and in our latest campaign we've run into a slight issue. Our Occupant is set to 3CB Cold War US and the invader to 3CB Cold War USSR, and the Soviet's are all equipped with immensely effective lvl5 body armor, all of them (for what it's worth, it's the 6B5-19 armor from RHSAFRF mod). From what I've read, it is quite the capable armor in real life too, and we don't exactly mind that, but having them equipped on literally every single soldier (apart from maybe pilots) feels just plain off, especially when combined with the poor effectiveness of the M16 against it (you can end up dumping a mag into a single soldier from close range without them going down, unless you aim for the face), and is also in stark contrast to the US forces who often only have a few guys wearing body armor in a group. If it was the Soviet special forces or just a few of the units in a group, then sure, that's fine. Is there a way we could limit the prevalence of the body armor a little bit?
