  1. Historical accuracy in war games

    I'm starting to think EA is insane in the membrain...you know like that song. LOL.
  2. West Coast Tactical

    Maybe you did it but didn't know you did it, an accident? Just theorizing possibility.
  3. Maybe the truck can drive itself back to base by using a NPC again just like an NPC doing tank loader position?
  4. Historical accuracy in war games

    Just found this petition: https://www.change.org/p/ea-dice-battlefield-5-respect-historical-accuracy Should we sign it? I think so...
  5. Historical accuracy in war games

    Seems the draft for women keeps going back and forth... https://www.military.com/daily-news/2017/06/29/congress-shelves-plans-have-women-register-draft.html If ww3 ever breaks out...yeah probably will happen. Seems more than money at work here, but just my opinion.
  6. Historical accuracy in war games

    Nobody said that they did, and you didn't answer my question, why was there no frontline women soldiers in WW2 games before now?
  7. Historical accuracy in war games

    Well, why were there no female soldiers in WW2 games before now besides the spy service ninja women in Wolfenstein? Now they are in WW2 game as a soldier means the idea of no frontline women soldiers is now over turned right, but depiction in the game didn't overturn it by itself. The game depictions don't do it by themselves, it's who controls the politics, right?
  8. Historical accuracy in war games

    Games, film, TV, media it's all related, games now make more money than film and TV. Stories of the past set in time are in a historical context. We see ideas of today, changing attitudes and norms get projected into the past way of thinking. And learn and grow or maybe forced to change into a new way to think a new way to believe in something, maybe change what you thought was a fact or truth. So, maybe it is more a big deal than you think. . But I can see how people think games are just toys for kids and so harmless. But....maybe not.
  9. Historical accuracy in war games

    I can agree with that view. It just seems whoever gets in power always wants to change the past so they can control the present and future. Mold people's views and attitudes according to their view and ignoring facts. Although one could argue history is largely fictional anyway in that the victors get to write what the facts were even if its not entirely true. Yes women did fight but not as men did and if they did it was as part of resistance groups or smaller military units or in isolated instances. They were not drafted to be front line soldiers even though some did fight on the front as snipers like in Russia: Lyudmila Pavlichenko Sniper Lyudmila Mikhailovna Pavlichenko was a Soviet sniper in the Red Army during World War II, credited with 309 kills. She is regarded as one of the top military snipers of all time and the most successful female sniper in history. Im ok with female characters in games as soldiers but be historically accurate. Say you want to change attitudes about drafting women into front line soldiers....put them in war games in those positions and whamo you now accept women being drafted into same positions as men, because well you played with them online in a game. Right? Or am I exaggerating? I believe the military did say not too long ago women now can be drafted in future?
  10. [Suggestion] Dynamic Weather

    It maybe possible that weather effects could be local to your computer, the network or server would just send out command to the client which weather and sky to project onto your map. So, performance would be how good is your computer? When you as a player can change something in the weather effects that has to be broadcast to other clients, then network performance gets a hit.
  11. The Wrench - May 2018

    Very good....very good.
  12. unrealengine4 keeps crashing

    Looks like not enough RAM....need more.
  13. Interesting...grand operations coming in bf5...lets you battle over days so to speak and you have objectives to take out first day and if you fail to take them out it makes it more difficult on second day and if taken out makes it easier, atleast that's what Im concieving from what I heard and seen about it so far. So, there are objectives like flak guns, artillery, bunkers, assets that CAN'T get replaced...once they get taken out. These are the kinds of objectives map designers should consider and locate on maps for teams to fight over, or let team commanders place on map at beginning of match. The terrain and roads should be considered for attacking team and defenders should set up barrier s based on terrain and defending assets. Territory control is all good but what can you place in your territory that can be a defensive asset that the enemy can take out and you don't get it back? And therefore weakens you and this is more like how war happens. I think.
  14. Fall Out 76

    It seems to me the single player worlds of gaming are merging into the multiplayer worlds, but the reverse is not occurring as much or at all. Multiplayer games are not adopting single player objectives but single player objectives are entering the domain of multiplayers. Does that make sense? Seems the formerly single player games are taking risks and going for more diversity when entering into the multiplayer verse.
  15. I wonder if you have a 100 person server then how many NPC's can you have in addition to player controlled characters? In theory the NPC's for tanks would only be seen when shooting mg from tank outside hatch. And just be tied to the tank. So, depending on how many tanks on map simultaneously is how many NPC's there would be for tanks anyway. Probably not a big deal for server to handle extra NPC's, but will reserve for coders to say what if any extra handling or not.
