A small summary? :)

 

Courtesy of Battleborn

 

From the stream:
-Crew kits are definitely confirmed and will be expanded upon (used for IFV+ at least)
-IFVs are coming along really well, they just barely missed the recap
 
-Ammo bags are confirmed and with the public request for them
-Ammo will be much more accessible on the battlefield with many vehicles being tested with carrying ammo
 
-Crew members will be able to do basic repairs on their vehicles like they can do in real life
- specifically repairing parts of their tracks so they don’t end up sitting for hours waiting for a logi (Track/wheel damage won’t be in for A11 though as far as we know)
-Weapon mechanics are being actively worked on by SgtRoss to be more reliable and he specifically had just been working on modifying recoil and weapon handling for various weapons (reducing horizontal recoil on m4s for example)
 
-Suppression mechanics are confirmed to be happening and in active testing, however Ross expressed his dislike over Project Reality’s strategy of completely blinding players screens with every shot and mentioned on how that isn’t realistic to real combat (people become more focused, adrenaline increases, except buffs like that won’t be seen in-game since it would turn everyone into super soldiers). The focus will be on altering player behavior with the “fear of death” via inaccuracy and aimpunch (when hit) ect. but not completely debilitating the players when they get shot at by a couple rounds.
 
-Vehicle comms channel confirmed to be looked at and wanted by Ross -Shotguns are again confirmed to be coming in
-As to division of opinions in the community: Squad is not being designed with e-sports style competitive in mind, nor does Ross like the prefer term “milsim”, however the devs do not look down upon those styles of gameplay and both encourage and would like to play those styles of mods and gameplay ect.
-Drones are something being looked at, at the least the Commander’s UAV

No kidding. This is the kind of thing we're thirsty for, moreso than the McKenzies and a 6pack of beer.

Why keep it so secretive? There's not even an announcement on the forums of a stream.

 

I find a post on Reddit about it before it's posted here, that's really dumb.

It was announced on Discord, but only on short notice, too. It probably was kind of semi-spontaneous. There will be more of these dev streams in the future, probably with better announcements, right @Gatzby?

It was really good. Echoing the announcement part. Only found it through a link in a comment on reddit. Pretty random.

Also Twitter. =) The immediacy of some platforms makes them better for the live event (e.g., Discord and Twitter have up-to-the-second notifications), but things like Facebook might trickle out the post to a few people here and there over the course of a week -- you may not necessarily see it even if it is posted, due to the way their algorithm works.

 

They are a little fluid, which is also why it went 2 hours this time. And yeah, we'll be doing more, and we're working out more kinks in each time. 

 

We're aiming to have the next one on or around April 20th -- some of you may need to set a few extra reminders for that day. =)

Oh, it was a stream, that makes more sense. All I found was an Unlisted Youtube video - that seemed odd.

Ah, yeah, we've archived it there because Twitch, even with partner status, only stores videos for a certain amount of days. Yep, for some reason, Amazon's Twitch.tv can't store video for more than 14-60 days. Fortunately, Google's Cloud has no similar limitations. =P

 

Thanks for the heads-up. I think we can probably get a graphic in the video itself and do a better job with the explanation. The intention is to make that list the archive, with more chats planned. (Should be another one next week, hopefully.)

 

Hopefully the format comes across okay with that knowledge! We're enjoying it; it seems to set some of the more nervous developers at ease. ;)
