My proposal is that Americans and Russians should be given full access to optics on every kit on maps where they fight each-other exclusively, I feel that this could make engagement ranges much higher and change how the game is played for the better. Also I believe that Grenadiers, Medics, and Light-AT should all have access to frag grenades promoting an all out what if scenario where each side has the best equipment and top of the line weaponry. Thoughts and ideas on how this can improve or be detrimental to gameplay?

Yes, I always liked the idea of a standard kit with a scope, and an alternative kit without a scope for conventional factions like us, Britain, and russia.

There is not a single modern military that doesn't have optics on all rifles as of 2005, so it would add a degree of authenticity

Once we can customize our weapons to a degree I would like this. I don't want to be forced to use a scope on a class like medic.

This topic is literally the reason why I have not played this game in over a year... Players with magnified optics just wreck players who do not have them. With iron sights and red dots its nearly impossible to make out a target further than 100 meters in game, the field of view needs a narrower adjustment to simulate the natural magnification of a human eye.

Turn off in-game anti aliasing. If you have an Nvidia card, use their AA in Nvidia control pannel.
Install Reshade/SweetFX, use it's AA and other features to crisp the image up.

Use resolution scaling to improve aliasing and clearer image, from in-game settings, or if you have an Nvidia card, use DSR to do basically the same thing.

It will probably come in due time, right now I'd be against it.

But then again I actually want ironsights only game for everyone but a marksman. :D

That's not true. Optics are very expensive and low priority. Do you have a source for this?

"Optics are very expensive and low priority"

Tell that to NATO.

Yes this, almost all modern militaries are within NATO anyway, excluding South Korea, Japan, Israel, Russia etc.

I am afraid you may have miss understood the point I am attempting to convey. The problem is not detail at distance, the issue I have is that not allowing the Field Of View to adjust to a degree narrower than 90 degrees gives a sort of fish bowl view for a player. For example, the amount of zoom that is assigned when you focus SHOULD be the zoom that is default for ADS on all weapons with a 1x zoom (iron sights or red dots). The human eye has a natural magnification, this allows us to see detail (or the shape of a human) out to 500 meters or so, this game unfortunately is very difficult to shoot at someone further than 50yds as they are only rendered as several pixels.

Its a good idea, probably best to implement when they have the inventory system working,

 

Trade-off is good idea: ironsight rifles have foregrip, reducing vertical recoil and optic weapons don't,
