Hello, Thought I'd stop by and let you guys know about a little bug I've been having.

Basically the commander seat M240B on the LAV 25s  ejects over sized casings when compared to the rounds in the belt.

Pic below:

 

Hopefully I haven't wasted your time with a duplicate bug report. 

Cheers and thank you for bringing continuous support to the ArmA series.

Did you log it on the CUP Tracker?

Oh sorry. No, I haven't. I had a look for one on the front page but couldn't see one there. Where can I find it?

The "default" shell is from the "particle" effect for that to happen.  It appears to be closer to a .50 cal than a .30 cal.  The size of the shells CAN be altered, however it is kind of a guessing game as to how big they can/should be.  That's one of those time-suck problems to get just right.

There is a link in the first post on this thread. But yeah, should probably add one to the web page as well.

Edit: There actually is one, down below in the footer section, under "More Information"

Ahh ok, I never knew what that stood for.

 

I tried making the change to:

 

_pos = [507.486,14504.5,0];
_object = createVehicle ["CUP_B_LHD_WASP_USMC_Empty", _pos, [], 0, "CAN_COLLIDE"];
_object setDir 300.002;
_object setPosASL _pos;

 

Now I see the blue ghost ship at sea level but the actual carrier is still on the ocean floor.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thank you for the help.

 

Is anyone here having trouble spawning in the LHD Carrier on a server.

 

It worked fine for me before the 1.8.1 update but now it spawns on sea floor.

I think someone already replied to you a few pages back.

Yes, but the solution didn't work and I felt the post just got buried in the thread.

 

I was hoping someone else in this thread was running a server with the LHD in it. Very Perplexing.

 

The sqf code I'm using to spawn LHD:

 

_pos = [507.486,14504.5,0];
_object = createVehicle ["CUP_B_LHD_WASP_USMC_Empty", _pos, [], 0, "CAN_COLLIDE"];
_object setDir 300.002;
_object setPosASL _pos;

 

This should work, yes?

 

Thank you.

Dude is extremely exposed by the looks of it haha. 

 

Just some feedback/idea. Would it be better for him to be in like a semi squat position where his head is somewhat inline with the sights? I can imaging trying to shoot like this is quite inaccurate.

Are you guys going to take a look at the config of the ANZAC Frigate, because some things seem to be off:

  1. The direct fire method of the 127mm cannon is off, the shells fall way short of the actual sighting (something like having to put 2500m to hit a target at 800)
  2. Artillery computer doesn't aim the gun in the angle and direction it needs to hit the target from a higher fire solution, it simply keeps the weapon where it is.
  3. When aimed with the cannon, if you press "Numpad +" 3 times, you get taken to a random screencap of another game o--O
  4. Muzzle position for the AGM-84 is slightly wrong on the model
  5. AGM-84 missile drops way too far before starting to climb when locked to targets, meaning you have to aim considerably higher than the target to make the missile not hit the water
  6. CIWS can shoot through the ship at targets (This is more of a LOD issue I presume)
  7. Ship seems to be indestructible
  8. Helicopters can land on the back pad, although men will fall straight through it (LOD issue I guess aswell)

 

 

EDIT: Actually, the sighting doesn't affect the cannon at all, the only way to hit the targets is to aim higher...(Bug or feature?)

The config is fine-ish, it's just really counter-intuitive because... arma.

1. to shoot in direct fire you need to change the firemode until you see the selector switch full (the bar will move from 1 tick to 3 ticks and then to 5 ticks, use the last one)

2. when you're in optics mode you need to zoom in ( + ) till you get a black screen with a fake overlay, otherwise arty computer won't work. keep in mind that if you're moving the game wont compensate for ship movement, you need to click on the map again before shooting

3. thats the magical arty computer overlay

4. unavoidable compromise

5. was working fine last time i tried, were you locked onto some target or just shooting and aiming manually?

6. unavoidable compromise

7. it's not, 3 Kh-23 missiles or 2 Harpoons should kill it

8. unavoidable compromise + arma doesn't handle soldiers walking on moving objects very well, odds are collisions with the ship will kill you or drop you into the water

Damn, I dropped 3 Mk82s straight to the side of it and it didn't die. Good to know how to make arty computer work.

 

I was locking a assault boat and, yeah, I know about men and moving vehicles, but i half expected it to be enabled (I think it needs a roadway lod no?) so that you could have players walk when the ship is static and use some scripting to attach them to the ship, when it wants to move.

 

Either way, thanks for the fast response :P and for clearing up my questions.

Bombs are not recommended (unless you get a direct hit), big missiles do more damage (still you could probably injure/kill the crew, despite the ship not sinking).

Otherwise in ship vs ship some 10 direct hits with the Mk45 should sink it, on testing i could manage to get kills from max radar range (10km).

 

Yeah roadway is halfway enabled but i think at the very edge collisions dont work right. I'll see what can be done.

Yeah, might not have been all direct hits :P

 

Anyways, let me bother you once more, any plans on making the VLS tubes working? Launching Tomahawks maybe? :3

Agreed, we had an internal discussion and I decided to change it. Now looks a lot better and the commander is less exposed, only thing is with how the position is setup regardless he will always be exposed so nothing can really help that apart from maybe some GPK.

Nope, that's for the sea sparrows and all the animations are there, howevere there's a silly restriction with how many people in a vehicle can use tablock (only one), so we had to put all tablock weapons to a single gunner (reason why the main gunner gets all the fancy weapons).

Awwww, kinda half expected them to be able to launch Tomahawks :P

Yea that looks a lot better! Could put a small shield on the front of the .50 for some little more protection, or is that too much haha?
