  1. Considering building a new PC around my new RTX 2070 Super...

    I got the R9 3900x with the B450 Mobo - Just didnt see the point in spending the 200 extra on a motherboard. Cut my costs considerably. I have no use for WI-FI on my motherboard and it saved a lot. As others have said 32gb of ram probably isnt needed unless you're going to be doing some pretty intensive hardcore work on the PC. That is a LOT of storage.
  2. SQUAD Registration of Interest

    As of current there is 7 controls for flight, 1 of which is not flight orientated. I think its safe to assume using something like a Warthog is best defined as using a minigun to cut up a carrot. Though I do appreciate why you would want to do so; its just a little overkill for what is being offered in the games flight model. I think its fair to say if you want to deploy something like that at this point in the development cycle of the game, it's understandable that its on the user to figure out how.
  3. SQUAD Registration of Interest

    There is an ingame UI For changing controls; it works. The issue with helicopters for squad is they were released in October, and have undergone constant re-balancing because of how drastic an effect they have on the game. It seems a lot of people are approaching squad as the "Spiritual successor to PR" - It is not; Its a different game in its own right. Its still regularly being updated albeit slowly. Currently there is no real co-op based gameplay; There is a reasonably large playerbase regularly - The biggest issues currently are badly admin'd servers and a lack of players with comprehensive knowledge on the way rounds are played. There is a distinct lack of any decent squad leaders mostly. I've got about 200 hours in, I try to get a game in once a week minimum; The games vary wildly in quality from being some of my best gameplay experience online to being some of my worst. The graphics, the mechanics and the sound quality of the game is incredible nowadays. If you have the patience to learn it is not disappointing.
  4. Need help making a blueprint prototype

    It highly depends on the complexity of the item/'s you are creating. Blueprinting is something I've done in the past and product drawings etc but I've not really designed and developed a large amount of interlocking parts etc. It really depends what you're attempting to design, if it has a large amount of electronic parts, if you have the specifications for those parts. Bashing out a blueprint wont take long generally but each individual size requirement length requirement and decline in tolerances complicates things. Generally speaking hand drawing blueprints will give you much faster results than developing using a program of some sort, takes a lot of skill to get accurate CAD drawings of anything that starts to get complicated and you'd also have to have access to some serious development software to get anything worth its weight. Pencil and plotting paper is the way to go.
  5. I understand what your saying Xenalite, but thats only one possible outcome. The other posibility is they get a system that allows them to earn more money. And abuse it exponentially for crazy monitary gains.. which one is more likely? Fact is its handing the keys to the internet over to a company. You are handing the keys to one of the things we all love the most, to a "Money maker" that is literally what is happening, and if you think that will benifit you in a positive manner.. well thats just crazy in my opinion. There is very little to no companies around anymore that wouldn't screw you for some extra $$$$$$ hell even game companies are tragic for it now, there is no way you say to them "You could make untold amounts of money being greedy.." and they all just dont. Also, peering agreements are metered anyway most of the time.. So the argument you've given for it dosent have as much as a solid foundation as you'd assume.
  6. It is also worth noting, this act isnt just intended to throttle your speed. It provides complete control to the ISP over the lines they provide. They dont like Amazon because they wont pay them money? No more amazon from your ISP! They are arguing with Ebay? Throttle Ebays speeds to unsuable levels!
  7. Comms Protocol

    In this scenario you'd simply say the word "Break" To indicate your changing points. You'd cut the first Break out because its still a priority contact report. And would have only one Break, In reality the stenance would read "BE ADVISED, I have six contacts, bearing 1-2-4 Degrees, from my position, One contact armed with an RPG. -BREAK- Advise APCs remain clear, Squad(Callsign) pinned down and require assistance. Over" The word break would usually be used but this is a long radio transmition (About 7 seconds) So the break in this could actually be either the word break stated or an actual break in the transmition. It depends on how heated the situation is if you dont have time to mess about with the radio you'd call the word break and continue. If you're able to sit and wait the 1.5 second break time then you can simply unkey the radio wait and rekey to continue the point. The main point of speaking on a radio is just getting your point across quickly. These communication tips are used because it standardises. It dosent mean you can't break the protocal to get something across quickly.
  8. Comms Protocol

    This reminds me of arma Acre comms, Feel like a lot of you would get a kick out of it. Leading a 9 man squad, 2 fireteams with a short range squad net (That can be broken by terrain) with a long range Platoon net, and then a company net with company assets such as MBT's and air on. So much communication going on and these processes have to be stuck to for the sake of sanity not just to look good. So many callsigns and voices operating on everynet. Think you'd all love that. Its very nice when you have to have squads relaying things to command and such due to you being in a large depression or such and the actual radio signals come in broken often in those times. Only bit of info thats worth noting, maybe not applicable in this scenario but as general information. When you call "HowCopy?" The answer is rated as "How much can you understand?" And "What is my signals strength?" So "How Copy?" "3 by 2 at this time." "Wait one, Adjustment." "How copy?" "5 by 4. Solid Copy." As well as the word "Repeat" should never be used upon net as its a signal for a repeated ordanace usage and could me mistaken at anytime. Repeat is a Battle Damage Assessment Keyword for Return to strike target.
  9. Squad creation time

    " Assets squads may be locked if the squad leader is waiting for a slow loading player. (Friend who is going to fly cobra with player) It cannot be locked if there are other assets to use. " Too me. This Suggests you may lock the squad if the squad is based around one two man asset. This rule isn't exactly clear on the topic but It does seem unfair to lock a squad with multiple assets because you want your friends to have them. - It would work if people were reasonable and would give it to for instance Brian next round. But lets be honest. That's not going to happen so if the rule is literally you can lock squads so your friends can have assets then its punishing people for not being able to pay for a better computer because Hell if I know. Maybe Brian has 4 teenage kids a wife and a mortgage and insurance hes paying. Hardly seems fair.
  10. Questions about building a PC

    Would say AMD, over NVIDIA just cant beat the price comparison. Any draw backs (Which i've never suffered personally.) are pretty much worth the essentially half price. Plus you wont actually feel those drawbacks for enough years that saving a few each year for your next build will cover it easily. Also heard a lot of complaints about NVIDIA Drivers being a pain. Ram everyone has said it. 2x16GB Because why not future proof. That Tower case should be fine and probably leaves air-cooling as a legitimate option if you don't want to spend the extensive sum required for WaterCooling. Worth it but only if your running pretty hot as it is now. Power supplies as already noted Get yourself a good brand I use SuperFlower and have only praise. 80+ Platinum is definitely recommended.
  11. Arma 3 Unit

    The units page has been around for about a year now. Its pretty low profile though.
  12. Feature list

    If you do ask Semler or savage, they could probably use your files for a dedicated server off our box, would fix your port issues and well put the server on a dedicated gameserver box. Both points being a win win. I gather this might be a you project, but I'm pretty sure the guys would be willing to help. I Think we've even had an insurgency server running in the past, without any of your cool modifications though.
  13. Back in the day...

    Well all I'm saying is. Last time I tried to run it, was dreadful, talking 5-10 fps. and I manage to milk 30 out of Arma 3, so if its that bad. Its not going to be playable for a lot of people. Thats the only real downside.
  14. Back in the day...

    Got squad. cool mechanics. Basically an up to date PR. Runs like cement. It just is horrific optimisation. Granted it's still being produced but if it's gonna end up like arma 3, your going to need a super computer to get it to run.
  15. Back in the day...

    I'd suggest a hard look at "insurgency" simple, cost effective, good gunplay, good teamwork based aspects. Good game over all. Reasonably fast and round based.
