    It's what i thought yes, i couldn't find a confirmation for that. Thanks.

    Tanks - Damage improvements

    Frankly, i'm not seeing this difference. Even with top-attack mode, it doesn't change that much. I'm trying it again right now, titan vs Varsuk. 0.73 of damage after 2 top-attack mode missiles, and the Varsuk it's still shotting and moving. Third missile and BOOOM, 1.0 damage, destroyed. Same for Kuma and Slammer. The T-140 seems have better results, turret damaged more frequently at least. Indeed i'm reading in the "weapons improvements" topic that the HEAT it's probably still in WIP, so... i'm full of hope.

    Tanks - Damage improvements

    @Asheara May I ask you how much AT weapons are still in WIP? because right now they seem... arcadish. They rarely make hitpoints damage, only global damage, and so they destroy the tank in N shots, wherever you hit the tank: 3 with titan and Vorona, 4 with RPG-42. Just to know if right now it's useful play around with those toys or not. P.s: The Tandem-HEAT for the Vorona it's an educated guess i suppose, because right now it doesn't pass trough any ERA.

    Tanks - Damage improvements

    I did some tests Rhino 120mm APFSDS vs Slammer. I focused mainly on hitting the slammer on the side. The hits on the side turret seem have reasonable effects, with a resulting red gun or red turret. While, shotting at the hull, the only way i did some damages was: 1) Hitting directly the tracks, resulting in a damaged track. Fine. 2) Hitting exactly the driver seat spot. In this case was something more than some damages: all hitpoints red! https://imgur.com/a/NrJWF Instead, all the other shots in all the other parts of the tank's side hull, penetrating or not penetrating, did nothing to the hitpoints, only global HP. No engine or hull or tracks damages. https://imgur.com/a/CWn2u Strange behaviour. Especially on the front side it should damage the engine, and the damages made hitting the "driver seat area" seem way too much compared to what happen if you hit other spots, even if per se it's good that a penetrating AP on that spot do a lot of damages. With 2-3 shots the tank usually explode because global HP i guess, but we should see more effects on the hitpoints before the "blow-up" event.

    Tanks - Damage improvements

    First of all, great work, i wasn't expecting so much improvement for the tanks update! you are exceeding my expectations. My biggest concern right now is about the AT weapons. They was always too weak against tanks. Or, well, especially against Kuma and Slammer. But now i have difficulties scratching even a Varsuk with a Titan, hitting weak points without ERA on the side or on the rear. PCML and RPGs should be able to heavily damage tanks hitting the right spots, while titans should be able to do big damage just avoiding ERA. I'm not saying i always want a catastrophic kill (BOOOM) with one hit, even if it should happen sometimes, but at least i would like to disable the combat effectiveness of the tanks, disabling the engine/trucks or the gun, or both. As a person that went in depth in how the vehicle damage simulation worked trying to tweak it for the events of my clan, i would like too some docs on the changes. With that maybe i could help more to understand where are the issues really come from. Because, as @scavenjer said, it seems that there is still the "splash damage hit" meccanics in place with the AT weapons, instead of a good HEAT simulation, but this is my past experience speaking. But again, really appreciate the job that you are doing. EDIT: I used both PCML and Titans in direct attack mode.
  7. Hi Aspide, can you make a vegetata uniforme da combattimento without Col Moschin insigna? not always it's a special forces mission, you know. Thanks for your work.
  8. Ciao, the Panzerfaust shot straightline, like the vanilla RPG7, without any arc. I'm pretty sure that it is because the ammo inherit from the class missilebase and not from rocketbase. EDIT: And i think you have forgotten the compatibility with other mods optics also for the arx160+GL.
  9. About Tank DLC I saw that you have asked wishes and opinions about that in the last roadmap and, well... i have to say, sadly, that the tanks are the worst made content of the vanilla game. I hope the DLC can change this. 1) Absolute priority: fix (because is more a bugfix than a content request) the bugs / issues wrote at the end of this wiki article about the damage system: https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Arma_3_Damage_Description Without caliber-based mechanics, it's basically a matter of life points: you can damage/destroy a tank with a 30-40mm gun if you shoot enough bullets. It doesn't make sense. In most of the cases or the bullets penetrates, or not. There should be situations where you need 2-3 ammos to really penetrate and damage the tanks, or where a bullet not penetrate but still makes damage, but should be also more situations where you will not do anything at all because the weapon is not enough powerful to make anything to the tank's armour; or where you penetrate and kill the tank in one hit. IFV cannons should do no damage to side and front tanks armour; AT missiles (as Titan) should kill a tank in one hit if they hit the right spot. Another probable strange effect of the hitpoint issue reported above is that the satchel charge makes way more damages to tanks than AT mines, or titan AT, or basically everything. The tank never explode, but if you check inside is all red. 2) There should be (more) difference between hitting different places of the tank armour. Should be something like (> mean stronger): Frontal turret armour => frontal hull armour > side turret armour => side hull armour > back armour That's not only about realism, but also about gameplay, because if not all the tanks tactics about face the enemy with the front armour / put the tank hull down means nothing. Now, especially against AT weapon for the reasons explained before, there is no much difference. Sometimes is even better being hit in the back instead of on the front: a T-100 hitted in the back hull will have the engine destroyed, but maybe the gun still usable; a T-100 hitted in the front may end destroyed in one hit, especially if hitted in the space between the hull and the turret. There should be weak points, ofc, but generally speaking for the tank survivability front should be better than side and side should be better than back. -------- These two points are, imho, absolute priorities and would make the vanilla tanks play in the same league of the best community-made contents. Indeed, if you want a good example of a working (gameplay-wise) tanks, see the RHS tanks AND their damage system. Then it comes a very mine whislist that is not really important, but i'm already here so... Wishlist: 1) Reduce the Slammer armour against AT weapons: to destroy it you need 3 titan AT ammos or countless rpg42 ammos, basically the Slammer is bulletproof from everyside. It's too much. The same for the green side tank, i don't remember the name. 2) Rudimental FCS. I'm not asking things like the RHS fcs, but something like the ACE fcs yes: not just aim and shoot, but aim - press a button for zeroing - shoot. This makes harder hit moving target, as should be. 3) APS (active protection system) and ERA (reactive armour). 4) We are in 2035, so i would like to see a new futuristic class of armoured vehicle, like a vehicle specialized in urban warfare.
  10. A little update. The secret to remove the square marker is texture="\A3\ui_f\data\igui\cfg\targeting\empty_ca.paa"; class CfgInGameUI{ class Cursor{ class Targeting { class MarkedTarget { scale=1; texture="\A3\ui_f\data\igui\cfg\targeting\empty_ca.paa"; color[]= { "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_R',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_G',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_B',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_A',0])" }; textureLockable="\A3\ui_f\data\igui\cfg\targeting\empty_ca.paa"; colorLockable[]= { "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_R',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_G',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_B',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_A',0])" }; textureFriendly="\A3\ui_f\data\igui\cfg\targeting\empty_ca.paa"; colorFriendly[]= { "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_R',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_G',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_B',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_A',0])" }; shadow=0; }; class MarkedTargetNoLos: MarkedTarget { texture="\A3\ui_f\data\igui\cfg\targeting\empty_ca.paa"; color[]= { "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_R',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_G',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_B',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_A',0])" }; textureLockable="\A3\ui_f\data\igui\cfg\targeting\empty_ca.paa"; colorLockable[]= { "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_R',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_G',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_B',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_A',0])" }; textureFriendly="\A3\ui_f\data\igui\cfg\targeting\empty_ca.paa"; colorFriendly[]= { "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_R',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_G',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_B',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_A',0])" }; }; class Seeker { texture="\A3\ui_f\data\igui\cfg\targeting\empty_ca.paa"; color[]= { "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_R',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_G',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_B',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_A',0])" }; scale=1; shadow=0; }; class SeekerLocked: Seeker { texture="\A3\ui_f\data\igui\cfg\targeting\empty_ca.paa"; color[]= { "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_R',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_G',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_B',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_A',0])" }; }; class ImpactPoint: Seeker { scale=0.5; texture="\A3\ui_f\data\igui\cfg\targeting\empty_ca.paa"; color[]= { "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_R',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_G',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_B',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_A',0])" }; }; class ImpactPointNoLOS: ImpactPoint { texture="\A3\ui_f\data\igui\cfg\targeting\empty_ca.paa"; color[]= { "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_R',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_G',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_B',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_A',0])" }; }; class HitPrediction: Seeker { scale=0.5; texture="\A3\ui_f\data\igui\cfg\targeting\empty_ca.paa"; color[]= { "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_R',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_G',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_B',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_A',0])" }; }; class HitConfirm: Seeker { texture="\A3\ui_f\data\igui\cfg\targeting\empty_ca.paa"; color[]={0.70899999,0.972,0.384,1}; }; class KnownTarget: Seeker { texture="\A3\ui_f\data\igui\cfg\targeting\empty_ca.paa"; color[]= { "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_R',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_G',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_B',0])", "(profilenamespace getvariable ['IGUI_TEXT_RGB_A',0])" }; }; }; }; }; In this case, to be sure to see effects, i put an empty texture everywhere, but you are not supposed to always do it ofc. Probably in my case i should modify only markedTarget and/or knowntarget. Now comes the difficult: remove the text with the name of the vehicle and of the player. EDIT: Made it, i think this way class Cursor { size="0"; activeWidth=0; activeHeight=0; But i also set scale = 0 in every marker to be sure.
  11. Thanks, i will do some testing and write here the results. Also because i have to make invisible also the name near the marker.
  12. Thanks, that's a solution. But will it make invisible every targeting marker, like the lock marker, or only that green square?
  13. Yes, but i would did not need to. I could see that Ballisticscomputer = 0 because there are no aim helpers, not even the manual zeroing.
  14. Thanks for the answer. I set the ballistic computer to 0 and the square marker it's still there; not the leading "helper" for moving target.
  15. I don't know if can be removed in other ways than config way, like server settings, but how remove this kind of lead/targeting from the Kayman or Blackfoot? http://imgur.com/a/6g6DD It's not a lock, it's an annoying targeting mark that shows itself also with no-lock weapon like the 20/30mm gatling. You can cycle different targets without see them using the "next target" button and so discover enemies without directly saw them.
