  1. Right now if sound input/output devices disconnected during active game process, then reconnected again, game doesn't use them anymore. It leads to people restarting the game to start using expected audio input/output. e.g. With only 1 audio output, if it's disconnected, game doesn't seem to use any output anymore until restart
  2. It's possible to significantly silence vehicles by spamming (and fast releasing) engine button during movement. It reduces the speed somewhat but overall let's you to keep moving with a decent speed and significantly increased stealth (less audio from engine). Disable engine action shouldn't silence engine until it's fully finished
  3. Sometimes when you place emplacements, you have green blueprint and message "Ground too steep" after attempt. It doesn't make sense, if I can not place it there, keep it red, clarification to why you can not place it still can be displayed additionally after click or during attempt, but there's no point showing "green - go" when it's impossible
  4. Mounting a TOW weapons system

  5. Vehicle driver weapon* selection

    Did you read my post? Numbers don't work for driver ammo/smoke selection.
  6. It's important for SLs to know how emplacements like TOW will be look like in finished (operational) state rather than seeing it's building blueprint to predict if position is good. During placing SLs should see emplacements blueprint in operational state instead of "building" state
  7. In 12.2 tow/mgs/spg (other gun emplacements) are displayed on the map only when fully built. Sometimes they are placed and forgotten to never be found blocking ability to have that emplacement at all. They should be always displayed even if not fully built
  8. Give vehicle driver ability to switch between "weapons" (vehicle ammo storage, smoke generator) with numbers instead of using "Infantry next/previous weapons" control. It's non-intuitive in a 12.2 that I set that control in "Infantry" tab.
  9. Giving player a clue that 1 minute after revive has passed will give him ability to make conscious decision what to do with life next (die again). Something subtle as audio of breathing out played is immersive and clear in the same time for anyone familiar with the mechanics. Displaying rest of such timers on UI (vehicle respawn timer, rally wave timer, FOB remaining colddown timer) will improve ability of players to make conscious decisions.
  10. TLR clan members (and admins) seems to have a tendency to attempt to hijack tanks from other players on the server. I've personally has been targeted by Old_Yogi and ElderCenturion, trying to hijack a tank after I've claimed it during deployment and Old_Yogi harassing me for refusing to step down making up a rule "You can not have infantry and tank crew in the same squad". Of course there's a fallback rule on the server #14 "Admins are there to ensure the server is a enjoyable and competitive place to play. We do not want to overburden people with too many rules, but there may be scenarios that are not covered by the above rules and any warnings/requests from admins should be respected. [kick/ban]" But I don't see how anyone is supposed to enjoy it. With overall respect to the server, which I consider to be better than many others so I actually play on it and care for the direction it's going, it's relatively hard to report such issues directly to the TLR community. My last report was handled properly, but all the public discussion in the discord has been deleted, including messages like citing their own rules, and further discussion locked. Here are the incidents: UPD: after all even this report is taken properly with apology by TLR which just shows another time that they are the reasonable people you can talk to and rely on when you need help

    > I can tell you the following, naming a squad “Warcrimes and Rape” is against our rules. We received several complaints from other players regarding it and followed up on those complaints. Was is in squad chat? Because I monitor allchat / teamchat close to 100% percent, there was nothing in the discord admin channel as well, so why people intentionally tried to report it the way so I didn't notice it? > We do not put our members on a pedestal and we uphold everyone to the same standards on our servers. The member who you mentioned committing the same offense has been talked to and due to this and similar actions, has been placed upon probation for half a year, with one more mistake resulting into a permanent removal from the clan and all services rendered by us. The problem with it, that that particular member wasn't alone in the squad. I don't remember exact number, but I would say that at least 4 members of Blood Bound joined it and at least one of the them was a server administrator. Squad name was standing during the whole round, the same way no one complained about it and admins didn't act upon. Where is all their apologies for doing it? There are none because if I didn't mention it no one would even notice. I suspect that the problem is mostly the word "rape"? The word "rape" was freely used in the game all chat by many players to describe the situations when another team can not give a fight, as expected without warning or bans. You do say that such squad names are unwanted and I can perfectly understand that. Until the incident me or your own server administrator obviously didn't think it's bannable offense. There's nothing in the rules directly stating it's against the rules. I will help you to formulate it, if you want. "1. No racism, sexism, discrimination or sexual content mentions of any sort will be tolerated.Any such chat - whether in text chat, or over comms - will be met with a permanent ban. This includes offensive player or squad names." You can even through in "controversial content" in there to cover your future adminning and justify bans like that. And yes, I am and people like me will try to avoid breaking your rules when you state them in such way. Unfortunately, all admin process I've been through was aimed to remove me immediately without consideration, although some of your members know me, many players do and I never broke any rules during about 500h played. To be honest, talking to the banning admin was comparably more toxic than average honest talk about war crimes as his only intention was not to prevent such cases in future when I mentioned that this is not regulated but screw me over in hate for mentioning it. > Are you honestly standing behind that statement? Aye, unfortunately I do. A lot of important historical events I got learnt about only after I've met people from Croatia, Serbia, spoke with people from Ukraine, etc. You and me know that conversations in the squad created by your member weren't toxic. The same way low IQ people don't end up talking in my squads because there's a kick function. And it's fine if you don't talk to people about things I do. In any way, I came to your server to play and not type something you don't want to be typed, unfortunately I have not given a chance to realize that it's unwanted, because many of your own members acted fine in a similar situations. And your mention that there's difference between me and your members sound like this: you pull out and shoot someone in the head for saying the word "rape" and ask the next one if he thinks it's ok what he did the same. If I asked him before the incident I'm pretty sure he wouldn't say it was a problem.

    Squad Thought Police or how to get banned for opinion TL;DR: I got banned from Blood Bound Squad server for being a squad leader of a squad called "War crimes and rape" for 3 days. I got perma banned from it for answering an admin that I do find such name appropriate. Other Blood Bound members had squad with name "Dolphins are rapey" without consequences. I've been a Project Reality admin for couple of years, I respect any kind of server rules and follow them. It's typically my first action to come and check the server rules if I play on new one. After the initial ban I went to Blood Bound Discord Server to re-read their server rules and ask the admins what exactly I did wrong. The rule I have been pointed to was: "1. No racism, sexism, or discrimination of any sort will be tolerated Any such chat - whether in text chat, or over comms - will be met with a permanent ban. This includes offensive player or squad names." I asked if that was racism, sexism, or discrimination but didn't receive an answer, instead *owner* asked me to come to help desk to discuss. The short talk came to the question if I find such squad name appropriate, then I answered "Yes, as it's not regulated", he congratulated that my ban is now permanent. Nobody on the server complained about my squad name or asked to change it, which I would do if requested. Ban came without warning. It wouldn't be such an issue if it was temporary ban for actions I did i.e. naming my squad the way I did even though it's not in the rules, but it is as I'm banned for my sounded opinion that historical facts are appropriate in the game where the main theme is killing people. If someone is wondering, I do not support war crimes or rape. Instead I call my squad names which are possible discussion topics for in-squad downtime discussion. This leads me to a couple of conclusions: 1. Do not expect to be treated in the similar manner as other Blood Bound members on this server. They are allowed more than you are. 2. Do not be open minded and honest with admins here, they are not there to understand and help you. 3. Do not practice free speech there or go into discussions, you might trigger someone and get banned. Meet you somewhere else, boys (:
  13. Hotkey for SL marks

    Aka "SL Place Map Marker #" for map. yes pls. Doubled here:
  14. Solution is: adding a server setting which restricts graphical setting. Each server will decide if they want it and to what extent. But then the epic client modification fight begins ):
  15. New Revive ability

    There's an urgent need to make people interested in playing medic. In the current mechanics medic is intended to be in every squad, but it's typical that people are avoiding it and there's much less than 1.5 medics per squad in average. Adding optics to make medic kit wanted and players to compete to have will increase overall quality, because it's easier to select better player for medic than to persuade people to be one
