  1. All, 2400 meters is extreme long range shooting, even for a .50 BMG round. A 647 grain match grade bullet will be traveling at 650fps at that range. The ballistics of the impact are not what you might think...that's only 639 ft.-lb. of energy. That's reduced from the 13,144 ft.lb. of energy it starts with!! This would be close to a 55 grain 5.56mm round at 250 meters or a 200 grain .44 magnum round at 100 yards. Quality body armor would certainly be able to stop it. Hope that helps!

    1 Mile+ M107 Kill

    Looks like I need to fire up ACE my friend!

    1 Mile+ M107 Kill

    @ArmAriffic That claimed range in the video (3000m) is bogus-it's only 1250 meters, I measured it myself in the editor. Pics below: The video looked wrong as anything beyond 1500 meters gets really difficult for one shot kills.

    1 Mile+ M107 Kill

    Had to share this brief story with you all: I was playing a custom combined operations mission in Zargabad with 3 friends last night and made my longest kill shot yet with the M107 platform. They were busying themselves with an MH6 insertion to the North and I was on the hill to far west of the Airfield. I spotted some OPFOR riflemen in the west sector of the city-they were Kronsky's UPS controlled units, walking along a wall. One of them paused, and I aimed for the extreme range and let loose the round. A little over 2 seconds later it hit him square in the back and he was incapacitated instantly. His buddies fled around the wall and I kept scanning for targets. Range was 1854 meters or 6051 feet (1.15 miles). Glad to be back playing ARMA:2 again! Out.

    CO14 - Operation Sky Sweeper

    @Ebden, thanks for all the input. I'm already addressing the proximity of the first T90's in the next release. @All, my GTX 295 graphics card bit the dust yesterday, so I'll be unable to do anything with the mission for a week or so. :( EVGA should ship my new one close to this next week's end. Please continue giving feedback as you have it. Cheers, Raddik

  7. @Murklor Thanks for the input. I'll tinker with this tonight and report back. Cheers, Raddik

    CO14 - Operation Sky Sweeper

    @vengeance1 You need to edit the direction in the stop.sqf script as well. The particular line of code is: BL1 setDir 90; This sets the direction of the invisible wall (what holds you in place). One would think that since we're simply flipping things 180 it would still work, but it won't. Make sure you change it for both the A10 and the F35B. @All Going to release a mission update tomorrow morning with some new features and improvements.
  9. Gentlemen, I am trying to write a script that will tell all players on a dedicated server when an enemy vehicle (created with BIS_fnc_spawnVehicle, not placed in the editor) is destroyed. i.e. if I destroy a T-72 tank, I'd like a silent hint to pop saying 'T-72 destroyed by Raddik'. I've experimented with this and I'm having a hard time making any progress...especially in the context of a dedicated server. Ideally this would be easy to edit to display that message for any or all vehicle types. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. Cheers, Raddik

    CO14 - Operation Sky Sweeper

    Still working on Mando Missile integration, but I'm making some serious headway. Going to spend a significant amount of time on this tonight to try and finish it.

    CO14 - Operation Sky Sweeper

    Kremator, We're currently working on a script to do just that. It would allow the AI to use the deck launch system! We'll update everyone on the progress when we make some. All, below is our server if you would like to play this mission w/o having to download and run it locally.

    CO14 - Operation Sky Sweeper

    Turk, I can do the map additon for potential AA...thanks for the idea. Kremator, I tried this with Mando Missiles and since the OpFor (ai) aircraft are created with a script o couldn't figure out how to limit their range/radar to that of human players. Maybe I'll send Mandoble a pm later asking for help. Cheers, Raddik
