mickeymen posted a topic in ARMA 3 - DEVELOPMENT BRANCHWhen I received news that the tank control on the commander's position had been changed in the test, I hoped that this would be just a test. But today I received an update of 1.78 and I saw that the new control on the commander's position looks disgusting. Excuse me for this word, but I can not find other words. This is not in the style of Arma. main troubles of the new control-system: 1. There is no feeling that the tank is controlled by another person. The player feels the opposite, namely as if he is a tank driver! It just spoils the sensation of the sim-game. 2.There is no difference in the control of the tank from the commander/driver positions. The only difference is the presence of voice orders. Otherwise, it is the same. Thus commander == driver. Then for what driver is need? Only for the fact that it's necessary to gameplay, not more. 3. The game automatically forces the player to stop the every rotation/movement of the tank, (when player release the A/D/W/S buttons). It looks arcade. In the old control-system, to stop the tank was needed a special order (s-button), which need in spent time as in reality. 4. The sound of voice commands does not match some orders and irritates the player. infinite "stop", "stop", "stop"... 5. Even after this update, the tank controls is not accurate. Many scolded AI-Drivers, because they could not be exact, but the new system is not better! If the player tries to stop the tank, it will continue move about another 10 meters before stopping. Or if you drive forward, hold down the W button and then release it, then some more distance the tank will go further. It's not like inertia or something adequate. In this sense, the old control-system was more accurate, since the AI driver stopped the tank's movement/ rotation exactly at the current position. Among other things, this does not correspond in any way with the voice commands of player character. Why does the character of the player after each order must say "Stop"? After each turn right/ left player character says - "Stop". Now the player automatically says "Stop" and does not choose when to stop the tank! Every few seconds the player hears - "Stop", "Stop", "Stop", "Stop"! It looks irritable to the player's ears. Among other things, a normal, adequate Stop command does not sound exactly when it's needed! For example, when player as commander accelerate tank forward (hold the W key) and press "S"-button, player hear not "Stop , player hear "Backward". Note! Yes, player says "Backward", but if In this case, the tank does not go back, it just stops! Why "Backward"!??? In order to actually go back, you need again to press the "S" button and again hear "Backward! OMG I do not want to hear this! @Bis you broke the old and unique Arma tank-control (which was not in any game!) and replaced by this arcade control. Please complete your test! I want to believe that this was just a test! May be some users will say, that the new tank control looks more convenient. Blah, Blah...Yes, yes, yes! perhaps it is more convenient, but this is less realistic for a sim game and this does not sound adequate (voice commands of player character). Arma never looked for more convenient ways, Arma always oriented on realism. New tank-control It looks arcade, I think this is more suitable for other games, such as Battlefierd or COD. @BIS please return the previous control of the tank to the position of the commander or give the player some choice in the game settings! Player would not want to spoil impression of the Arma game.
