    Tanks - Fire-control system

    I'm glad the Dev's have brought this in ,, as an Ex tanker I learn t to to estimate ranges which is quite possible within the game mechanics of Arma 2 and 3 ,, but having now a reliable way to lase targets ( without having to use ACE !! ) is fantastic ,, good work and thank you !!
  2. For the devs working on the TANK DLC , , I hope you's make a good job of it , being an Ex tanker of a UK Regiment , I do miss the "real " feeling of being back in tanks ,, one thing that has annoyed me when playing either Arma 2 or 3 in tanks is the lack of a "turret" indicator for , Driver ,Commander , Gunner ( yes the gunner had an indicator as well tho most of us experienced gunners rarely used it as we knew exactly where the barrel was in relation to vehicle hull ;) )positions this was a safety item on our tanks . I 've seen it being incorporated into a few of the tanks mods out there but haven't seen it on the vanilla tanks , rather annoying when you are closed down in a fight trying to get the tank into a better firing position so as not to catch the barrel on buildings or trees when driving around ,usually means we've taken longer to get somewhere or we've lost the vehicle.......... Also if possible please sort the physics ,as some people have stated already there are times when the vehicles catch come small bush or a wall or some item that's in/ on terrain and launches the vehicle into the air , which has also meant losing the vehicle due to it suddenly being exposed to enemy units ........ Vehicle handling could be improved as well ,its a very fiddly process when driving tracked vehicles in game as the response's of using a mouse keyboard system to drive hasn't got that , analogue feeling , its either on or off when trying to turn ,ok for cross country but when driving on roads it just isn't " Real life feeling "...... Another thing I'd like to see is better viewing capability from drivers position for driving closed down ,, its pretty darn useless in arma 2 or 3 , in RL in my Chieftain back in the day , we had the capability of seeing both front mudguards from drivers seat , appx 45 ° angle .... And please lets forget the Russian tanks for gawds sake ( lol) am sick of them !!! Would be nice to see Challenger 1 and 2 's being developed and brought into the game !! ( lol ok so I'm biast on that topic heehee)
  3. I have both helicopters and marksmen DLC's , both are fun to play around with .... For the price atm I would say go buy 'em !!! regards Bill70 ;)

    Weird features in British Armored vehicles

    The "BV" was a darn good idea back then on tanks ,its a frigging life saver when you are on the move for 3 days + with little or no sleep !!! either on exercise or on ops ! having served 13 years in a Tank Reg I can say it was a godsend bout the best bit of kit "inside" the Chieftain .......... !! Not only can you boil water but you could put the canes of food inside the BV so they were heated up by the time we stopped , plus of course a nice cup o coffee after eating the food went down well .. Oh and for anyone wanting to know why it was decided to install a "BV" ,, quite simple back in the day of development of the chieftain series the MOD ( as far as I've been told anyway!) was told they could either have an AC system or a water boiling system but not both .. ---------- Post added at 13:03 ---------- Previous post was at 12:59 ---------- Accttuuuaaallly me old fruit bat for the times I was "working " on foot I was quite happy for me "hexi burner" ,, they are also a godsend and dont take that long to boil water or heat up food ,if you know what you are doing with them ;) heehee ......

    SpeedofSound - Missing Files

    I have to agree with Egg on this one ,, after reading through the previous posts you all dont exactly give enthusiasm For our good friend BigPickles to even consider replying ,maybe a new strategy on your part would be advisable , Both Egg and I know Bigpickles very well and have helped / watched with his mod giving him enthusiasm to bring it to what it is ! Though yet again people like yourselves demanding a response from the author is something that is killing the Modding scene for Arma altogether , in the last few weeks speaking to modders on TS and hearing how they are considering stopping modding altogether due to sh..te they have to read through on there posts , maybe you should trying being more appreciative to the Author !!! Then JUST maybe he will be encouraged to give a reply ,, Maybe ............

    Hi Brooks143 ,, first off I'd like to compliment you on your work its looking very good and I'm looking forward to trying it out when its finished .. A couple of things that you might want to think about including into the model ,to make it more realistic .. Though it depends on which Mk of the series you are trying to represent as at the moment the pictures I've seen in your previous posts are showing various mks (lol) ,, 1.The barrel is representing a "pre" IFCS model which would make it either a mk1 or 2 . to rectify this you might want to add a "shroud" to the end of the barrel ( in RL this is known as the MRS (Muzzle Reference System) shroud ,used to align (zero) the sighting systems to the barrel .. here's a photo showing said shroud http://thumbs.dreamstime.com/z/chieftain-tank-29236510.jpg 2. Front hull of tank ,glacis plate , in your photos you have two bars attached to the hull in front of the drivers position , this is wrong actually there should be a so called "splash pate" going between the head lights on front of chassis , a photo of which is here https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1154/5138569983_1e1e8b8792_z.jpg This "splash plate" was fitted to stop the driver getting wet when driving through heavy terrain or water ,and believe me it was needed (lol) .... Apart from that your model is looking really good I've looked through all of your photos here on this post and can only say well done you have put in some very good detail of a tank I used to work on ;) , I can understand how hard it is too do the work you are doing and hope that this information will help you to develop your mod into a worthy model of a chieftain !! Just so you know I served in a Chieftain REGT between 1984-1996 ,if I can help you in anyway historically then please get in touch ,, I think Egg will vouch for me as I've advised him on how the chieftains work (lol) ... Best of luck to your development of this mod . Regards Bill70 ( Phil)
  20. All I can say it certainly is worth waiting for Egg' tobe able to release this mod as it is atm ,,,, Its bin alot of fun playing with the work that Egg has done , and I feel sort of guilty (lol) after talking along time over the last few years about "challys" and getting them into Evolution mission's ...... but am overjoyed that Egg went and did it ,, you 've done brilliant work on the mods Rob ,, Cheers m8 ...... For all those that may read my comments , Patience you will be enjoying this in the near future as most of you following Eggbeast's work will know from previous mods . Egg's work is second to none :cool: !!! Regards furb0 ( aka |GITS|Bill70)
  21. Nice one Egg look forward too seeing this on our Server (Bill) ......
