  1. I played a lot of Naval sims back before OPF and ArmA, mainly "Dangerous Waters" and "Destroyer Command". ALl I rember isa that Naval sims are rather not appealing for First person shooter players. It's all slow paced and involves klicking a lot throught 2D screens. Manual use of weapon systems is rare. Beginnign with late WW2 basically everything that is launched or fired at you is guided, auto controlled or Radar assisted. Modern Naval warfare is happeningn on computer screens. The biggest problem is, you have to emulate a crew of at least 32+ crewmebers per watch.
  2. As far as I remember, tracked vehicles did never use PhysX SDK in ArmA III,. hence the extreme physics difference in game compared to wheeled vehicles. What i rather noticed is moslty issues with sound resultign in using default BIS engien sounds fpr ther new planes. While the engien sound is good enough for the Do-28, the LET needs a turbine sound. Also both planes go all to silent when the engien is off, no wind, no ground rumble. THe LUchs is missing all wheel steering and the Engine is much to dominant, The real vehicle is almost silent except for full throttle and most of the tiem it was Brakes and tyres you heard way over gearbox noise and engine, at least from outside.

    You just want other to adapt for your comfort, thgats all I can see here. Why dont you adapt to warlodrs intead. You are not happy with Aircraft....operate a long range SAM unit. When ever the long range sams are up on strategical place with jusr a bit of maintenance, the dominace of Planes is over. Thats part of the game.

    No way you can simply change a gamestyle that has itself established for such a long time in such a drastic way without detroying the fanbase. Remove airplanes, and Warlords is over. What you want is simply not warlords.

    Problem is. ArmA AI can not handle aircraft in any half decent way when it comes to combat.
  6. I found my way back to my gaming roots with DiRT Rally 2.0. Full Driving wheel and pedal setup, driving primarily 60's-90's cars in manual transmission H-shifter mode witch clutch. I really like it to drive my first own car in that game again, a 1986 VW Golf GTI.

    CaptainDawson is spot on. Some mechanics and settings in Warlords make it a farce to even try to play it as a serious battlefield environment. It's all down to spawn and rearm exploits and camping it out in different ways, be it Defender/Rhea campign that I have done for hours....which of course did not stop the wave of aircraft that shows up when both sides have agreed to not go past Anthrakia to play primarily airquake for 2 days instead. They hate you on both sides when you set up a long range SAM.
  8. to be honest, 1983 and 1993 did not look much different in die Bundeswehr. The real change did not come before KFOR in 1999. Even the modern Flecktarn Uniforms and Protective Gear like Vests and Kevlar Helmet was not fully introduced before 1997. I served with the Panzeraufklärer in a KRK support Batalion from 1993-1995, and we never saw all the "advanced" stuff that was in the making at that time. WE had posters for the Leopard II A5 and the proposed but never build new Scout vehicle Zobel. None of them showed up. The Zobel became the Fenek, and the Leopard II A5 became the Leopard II A6, but at that time all heavy Panzerauflärungszüge were decommisioned. The only out of area Assignement of that times was UNOSOM II, and that was a luckily rather short one, since tropical gear was not provided because it did not exist.
  9. And the Luchs of course, Horrido!
  10. All those Aircraft are STOL Capable, you cn rty that out right now with the Caesar Airplane...there are plenty of places to take off and land right now in est and west...basically any flat field. Both have wingspans below 15m. This off-strip operations did work very well with the AN-2 in ArmA II. You could perform almost helicopter like insertions. So there is no reason why it should not work right now in ArmA III.
  11. Gloves should be mandatory anyway for Bundewehr field gear. At least In my time in the early 90's the summer gloves were mandatory in the field for MG3 gunners and generally recommended. Also the Webbing gear is too light in color, it should match the Uniform or be even darker. The modern Summer Zipper undershirst did not exist in the 80's, instead only a t-shirt or a regular collar Shirt was worn under the field jacket.

    Guys I love you. you're the real reason I still play Warlords sometimes. VoIP is sometimes real comedy these days.

    I doubt that was the case, because all those servers got updated the day before. But I had a hint on Dicord the closure was due to hunting down some script-cheaters. See my post from Tuesday!

    What is currently going on with all that locked, but nevertheless populated [official]warlords servers. Have the Hackers now finally taken it all over?

    Game Version 1.98. Warlords on official servers. Some Players still roam the game with infinite ammunition, particularly carpetbombing with LGBs or launching dozends of missiles from airplanes. Also those planes spawn at strange places. Clearly script abuse still possible and therefore done plenty.
