  1. PR COOP thread 1.6

    The issue with Kashan I attribute to our tanks not being on the ball that round- we got bogged down outside the airfield and stuck in a cycle of tanks having to drive 20 minutes to rearm so we never had them concentrated for a push. I wish there was some sort of way to rearm vehicles in the field- maybe a special crate, or give the combat engineer a special bag that can do it. Would give logi squads and combat engineers some more use. It would have to be slow or otherwise balanced in use of crates, but it would really help in those large maps.

    Looks like the Veitnam medic kits are missing their smoke grenades. Recommend that you guys do a sweep of all the SP kits to make sure nothings missing.
  3. PR coop maps that you hate

    And Qwai river has an entire half of the map unused. Having the flags split on both sides like the alt Marlin would lead to good teamplay as you would have the team split up. to get through quickly.

    @Johnny__Rico Remaking Beruit on the Russian Naval side will alleviate the scope issues, and also get us a chance to check out the new assets made for that faction that we don't ever see (the GAZ, new trucks, new landing ship and new helicopters!) I hope you guys put some thought into it, and thanks for running this survey!

    A very interesting map mechanic I'm seeing now is bot rally points spread around the map, which continue to spawn even when the flag is captured, but are able to be destroyed by gunfire. I think this is a fantastic mechanic, which should be utilized in maps more. What map makers should do is place these well outside flags, in other directions than the bots normally come from. This requires squads to search for and destroy the rally point before they can call an area safe, and let the map makers lead people into fights not in the same places as always, without having to put a flag or a permaspawn there. I really think this should be used more often, and in place of any backcap permaspawns.
  6. PR COOP thread 1.6

    @Johnny__Rico Don't get me wrong, I love the tough maps, but it can be a thin line between a tough map and a total rape of even an experienced 40 person server. A good example of what I would like to see more of is found on barracuda- Normally, to end the map, a squad simply flies to the bunker entracnce of the final point and runs right in without much of a fight. This update has added a quad gun to the roof of that bunker making such a strat suicide without dealing with it. This is a simple change, that's worked around in multiple ways (blow up the quad with cas, mortar it, land elsewhere and walk in, etc) that forces you to change your tactics and use new parts of the map (what we really want with coop!) without just giving the bots a ton of armor, and is what should be focused on with improving coop gameplay. Shahada does this as well with smart placement of tow and AA on roofs resulting in tanks and CAS never having free reign in the town, and it's large amounts of enemy armor are much more easily dealt with due to the city allowing you to flank.

    Kozelsk Alt is another 'double-ified' map now. They've got 4x T-90s and BMP-2s that our single T-62 and two BMP-1s is unable to handle and just results in you being raped, as once you take down one T-90 with like 4 HAT shots another one rolls up to take it's place. Give them one T-90 and One BMP-2 and it'll be fine.
  8. PR COOP thread 1.6

    Bamyan STD NEEDS some tanks or something else- even with a nearly full server and good cas we can't get past the checkpoint. Give us tanks and it would be fine,
  9. PR COOP thread 1.6

    I think it's a good start- these hard maps, like Shahada, are fun, but in Shadada it's hard because of well placed TOWs that prevent armor from having free reign and not armor that simply outnumbers you. If Bamyan had two or three tanks I think it would remain a tough map but not the utter stomp it currently is.
  10. PR COOP thread 1.6

    Bamyan Std need some work. Unless cas is 100% on top of their game you'll just get raped by the shit ton of tanks apcs, jets and shilkas they have, and the US doesn't have any tanks to counter them, only APCs. The addition of a few tanks on the US side would make it much more bearable.
  11. PR COOP thread 1.6

    As Kiddcar had discovered, hand grenade smoke thrown in water does CTD anyone nearby, but grenade launcher smoke does not. We presume this is caused by the collider generated to block bot view, but does this mean that gernade launcher smoke does not work on bots as well? Looking through the files, UBGL smoke IS intended to work on bots, and is supposed spawn the same objects that hand grenade smoke does, even for the french riflegernades. Unknown why it didn't cause a CTD, as the kits are set up to use the proper SP smoke. Might not be spawning the collider properly. The French Medics don't have smoke grenades while their deployment counterparts and all other medics do.
  12. PR COOP thread 1.6

    Fixed, huh?
  13. PR COOP thread 1.6

    Rokk, Skirmisher and me can confirm- we were getting constant CTDs on khami every 10 minutes or so in tank squad. I had also gotten one on an earlier map. No error log or message- just dropped to desktop. I had also gotten a similar CTD on Qwai River the round before.
  14. OPFOR weekends/days for PR?

    Good to hear that the 1.6 update is still coming! Definitely up for that! Something to break up the monotony of everyone knowing these maps like the back of their hand is always nice. Never understood why some people hate them. OPFOR puts everyone in brand new situations and makes you actually think about your attacks instead of running through the maps the exact same as we always do, and it's always fun when you're an 'insurgent' faction and everyone gets really silly with it, charging in big mobs and yelling like idiots. Fun to use the Milita, Rebel, and Insurgent kits we normally never touch too.

    I recall these being a thing for a bit and then falling off. Was there an issue with them or did players not like them? They were a good breath of fresh air and I'd love to do them again.
