View Full Version : MARK IV AND THE RIB\'S !!!!!
Since I have made my infamouse Navy Seal missions, I wanted to know if the next patch will come with the rib boats and the Mark Iv's which are able to "catch" boats on their ship like air planes on an air craft carrier. Also on the Mark Iv Boats, their should be a medical place to heal injured seals, just a thought.

"why dont we use the boats for SAS/SBS who are much better than the seals or delta force"
You should be shot for what you just started. I'm sick of the brits on this forum and there d*amn uneducated claims.
Doh, missed the 'n'.
2nd time maybe
Ha, ok injured saboteurs, since thats whut they are.

Brits tend to say that the British armed forces are so good because of the constant american flag-waving that often goes on. Not so much on this forum, where it happens only occasionally, but in quite a few others it does.
And whats wrong with the SAS being called the best in the world, when they have the best past record?

Dunno about that mate...this is the worst forum I've seen for xenophobic squabling.

I was trying to be polite, but this place does drive a close second.
What is 1st then?http://www.flashpoint1985.com/ikonboard3/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif?
The Americans cant take it that britian and many other countries have better armed forces. Its quality not size that counts or its what you do with it..LOL

You're all right. This forum is s**t because every uneducated, unexperienced, prepubescent tit has to come in and spout off about who is the best when they have no idea. None of you can prove your claims.
It happens in every thread and it's old. Every topic ends up off topic because of crap like
"why dont we use the boats for SAS/SBS who are much better than the seals or delta force "
"The Americans cant take it that britian and many other countries have better armed forces. Its quality not size that counts or its what you do with it..LOL "
It's all your opinions. And for the record almost every US flag waving post is provoked by some brit saying the US eats s**t.

Well, at least soldiers not in the seals know when to hold fire http://www.flashpoint1985.com/ikonboard3/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif
I think maybe the bottom line is that we are sick of playing yet another game where we are forced to be the Americans or their inadequately armed and largely ignored opponents. Maybe for once we could get a game (and I know there are some cases of this so don't scream at me) where we are some other country. It just gets a tad s**tty after a while. Perhaps this is one of the factors that aggravates non-americans.

its usually the American "hey look, the M1 in OFP 0wnz the T80 so USA iz l33ter than Europe u guyz suxz coz u iz small" attitude that gets Brits to come out with "Actually, you're forgetting us, Germany and Russia when you say that Equipment-X and Squad-X is the best" stuff.
The comment on this thread was out of order, but in other situations its a response people get used when to responding to US flag-waving.
And in a game where we play America when we want NATO, what do you expect?
What would you think if, maybe, it was a British or German outpost with G3, L85, Challangers, Leopards etc. and only a couple of American things for a "Oh yeah, and then some americans turned up as part of nato" thing for the plot?

I'd be perfectly fine playing as a brit or a german if thats how the game was made. I play it because it's a great infantry sim, not because it has the US in it. Too many people here take it personally. The gameplay would be exactly the same no matter what nationality it was made with. I play for the gameplay.
I also completely dissagree with you. More often than not it's a brit or german who comes in and says I want a Challenger/Leopard instead of the m1 because the m1 sucks. I've never seen an arguement break out because an american came out of nowhere and said the m1 is better than everything else without being provoked first.
I guarantee I could find more arguements supporting my point if I was so inclined.
Jan 3 2002, 22:33
It works out like:
"Can we have British/German units, I like to play as my country"
"Its USA - deal with it - no 2nd rate european stuff"
"UK has Stuff-X thats actually better"
"USA has the best stuff"
"Err, no. USA's X is crap, UK has better stuff X"
"Its always brits with their stupid claims"

Almost right ACTSMILEY - except for a few cases such as the following (they r gonna b pissed for this http://www.flashpoint1985.com/ikonboard3/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif )
and a couple of others that I can't remember the names of....

I'm tired of babies crying because their country isnt in the game. I am an American and I like playing the Americans. However I like playing the russians too. I wouldnt care if I was playing as a Brit or a German, it would be fun. But if it was I wouldn't be on the forum crying that America isnt in it.
It's not that our countries aren't in the game - rather that our countries are never in ANY games. Just Americans....and that is what I am saying probably annoys most people.
d*amn, its a game....a GAME!! why do you care which for which country you play? im from the Netherlands....I WANT A GAME IN WHICH I CAN PLAY A DUTCH SOLDIER!!! thats nonsense. i totally agree with Soon2B 2nd LT too. That guy in the beginning was just talking about Seals and all of a sudden it becomes a GB - US fight because a brit thinks it's necessary too mention that the SAS is better (which is true btw)...thats just idiotic. When i start talking about my house, what are you gonna do? say: 'hey! shut up!! my house is better and cooler!!' ??
yes , that's right i can live without real french units , why don't some brits don't do like all the others here ?
you can add yourself the units you want (almost all but only a reskin)
the brits always say that their stuff is the best , but it doesn't matter if it's best , would a challenger add to the gameplay ? no it's an mbt like all the others
same thing for the l85 , same thing for the sas
i want addons only if it add to the gameplay , but i'm not against the idea of a big pack with foreign units , if they're good , it doesn't matter , i had fun with the ebud's sas at the ed-center , but stop crying for stupidities
and i repeat again :
bis won't add units because they're the best , they have their own objectives , and actually they don't have to answer to the caprices of a minority , they are actually working on the developement tools , once they will be released you'll can do what you llike , but stop whining until tthey're released , bis won't listen to you and the posts will become flame posts
Well maybe if BIS released the SA80 and maybe the LSW and GMPG we would shut up becuase there already are british skins http://www.flashpoint1985.com/ikonboard3/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif . Also do any of you lot know a site where I can d/l britsh voices to go with the SAS soldiers???
alright i apologise for doing this (really i am) but we do get annoyed with all the hollywood films etc always taking the piss out of us and having them always save the day.
Now lets get back on topic, yes it would be nice to have those little boats, i agree, they shouldnt require any complicated coding and they are within the opf engine unlike other sugestions.
yes, it does suck always having it be the americans vs the russians. I'm not sure if having to be the russians or the americans who could easily dominate everything would be much fun. Some thing like being a north korean tank commander, where there acctually is some sort of challenge.

I totally agree with Soon2B 2nd LT
The brits always say they are the best and always have to have what they want
If they dont get what they they always have tu argue or continure asking,
Jan 6 2002, 17:43
CoolCarlos; try rereading Land Rover Defender? a civilian 4x4? topic.
I totaly disagree with coolcarlos(no offence).
We only say that our armed forces are the best along with German Forces.
We never say we are the best.
The reason alot of us ask for things like the SA80 is because if there is a high percentage of the OFP comminty that requests that model then maybe BIS might consider making it.
And if you dont want it dont use it.
I dont want stuff like different coloured tractors, so I dont d/l them.
Keep it civil please chaps so we don't have to delete the thread http://www.flashpoint1985.com/ikonboard3/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif
Just my 2 cents,
People are always trying to compensate for their lackings, by exaggerating, brawling etc., it´s just a defensive shield they build up, only showing their vulnerability.
And no, i don´t agree that the german forces in general are on par with GB, i´m with the "club" since 1996 and we lack many things, most of all experience, because we couldn´t drop and participate in any conflict that presented itself, because of national lawgiving and our role in history, as well as resource issues. I can tell you stories about how i waited over a year for a single spare part for my M-577, that was put out of action for this period of time. Or how we are not able to keep up with the newest communications equipment employed in the field by GB and US troops- we are only able to conduct limited cooperations with our Allies therefore. More than 20 Billion Deutschmarks (ca. 10 billion EURO) are needed to "restorate" the Bundeswehr, so we would be capable to an satisfying grade again (for a short period of time), enabling us to conduct peace keeping operations without any restrictions like that we have now because of old or missing material, and no money to replace it. The new G-36 may look nice and advanced, but it´s deployment into the Bundeswehr was a lenghty and still ongoing process, while some units already had the G36 for more than a year other units had still the G3. Same goes for the "Flecktarn" camouflage field dress, the new Leopard 2 and a shitload of other material and platforms.
For our Special Forces, the DSO (Division Spezielle Operationen) and subsequently the KSK (Kommando Spezialkräfte) is receiving training from SAS, SEALS, GSG9 and others. KSK recruits undergo a modified SAS training course. They of course have a wider array of equipment at their disposal than the "rest" of us, but again, if there are hardly operational planes and helicopters to deploy them full scale among other logistical shortcomings, even they are affected by the general situation we find ourselfs in.
Why i´m writing this? Because this childish "my matchbox car looks better than yours" starts getting really on my nerves, as on most other older forum visitors too.

This does suck. but,
No one's making fun of you, don't be so damn sensitive. So movies made in America use mostly american actors.. big whoop. There are more american actors (at least in the US, where hollywood of course is), the biggest market for movies is America: it's all about the $$. No one tries to pretend that these movies are reality. Hell, in the end of U269 (can't remember the number) they even listed who captured the enigma machines. The first date mentioned was before the US even entered the war, it obviously wasn't them.
Having americans do it was all about money, about having the audience identify with the heroes, it was not some attempt to rewrite history. I think everyone who cares to know knows that the brits got the enigma. I think it's pretty obvious that the brits fought and won the battle of britain, even if some crappy movie has a yank there being a hero.
Hollywood sells entertainment, to america first of all, because hollywood IS american, and america is their biggest market. Entertainment is not fact. The existence of money hungry people in tinseltown does not mean that the US is trying to take credit for everything, it means that rich fat cats want more $$.
I'm just sick of hearing people whine about unrealistic hollywood movies. No ^&*& they are unrealistic. I'm also sick of hearing people get pissed at all yanks because of what the idiots in Hollywood do. Complain to hollywood, not me.
Really, if Hollywood sucks so bad, don't support it. Watch british movies.
