1.More realistic AI engage range,them may start shooting fro distance. however,there are too many features,let's talk about them base on soldiers, these features are mostly tested work well in single-player mode or even multi-player mode(Of course,we still need more test).
Every type of soldier have his own setting.and only officer and crew can drive tank,only officer and pilot can drive plane.
\ One used M136 launcher - Now,for realisc,M136 launcher is one used,once fired,Soldier will drop the launcher.
\ Smoke shell - When underfire,Soldier'll establish a smoke wall with these smoke shells.
\ Smoke shell Red- When thrown,an fire support requirement will send,all nearby firendly unit will fire at your target.
\ Smoke shell Green- When thrown,an artillery support requirement will send to your HQ,if your side has artillery then an artillery strike will come in soon.
- MachineGunner - Knows use suppressing fire tactic.
\ The damage taken - Now soldier won't die so easily,he can take more damage from hands and legs,before unconscious I mean.
- Spec Op - he can use some special grenade,like flash grenade and tear gas grenade,AI knows use them automatically,and these grenade can affect both AI and player. Spec Op also have CQB ability
\ Flash grenade - once thrown,it will affect those who in 15Metes radius,if you see the flash in this range you will blind and shock for a while(but if you turn your back on the flash,you'll be OK)
\ Tear Gas grenade - once thrown,a gas cloud will appear,every one come in into this cloud will shock,it's good to force enemy come out from house or block a road.
\ Build Defense -you can select "Build Defense"/"Build Roadblock" in the action menu if you have "Materials",this "Materials" is one used,and a single squad can only have only one "Materials" at one time,when active,you squad will automatically stand in line and build a defense infront of him one by one,and these defense will be connected together too,in the open ground you can only build foxholes,but you can build sandbags in the City.this both work on player squad and AI squad,when in cover,Soldier will stay behind cover(he knows dodge with cover too,and automatically reammo and heal,the most important thing is after he reammoed and healed he knows back to his position) until the Officer cancel the order or squad Morale drop too low.
\ Morale system,base one ArmA setting,but suppressing fire,officer nearby etc.would affect morale.
- Sniper - now,they are equip with Machine Pistol,and small backpack(mean he can't carry too many items),but he can spot enemy from very long distance(400M~1000M)
- Crew - Crew can repair wheel and Tracked per vehicle once.
2.FFN MOD new single-player/multi-player game mode,<Mercenary Mode> and <Tactical Mode>
Mercenary Mode is more like multi-player campaign as a Role-Play-Game,there will be many RPG features in this mode,and also realistic style combat missions,join a mercenary group and select your mission,the test Mission 3 will show part of it.I'll release it in later Version
mercenary have four different classes (Ranger/Rogue/Fighter/Barbarian),every class has it own ability
Ranger class is good at Sniper Rifles,so when he using light and medium sniper rifle he will received attack bonus(less dispersion and make more damage),but will still have weapon dispersion in another weapons,when level up he'll got more basic attack bonus which make his aim-precision lower.his first aid ability is not lower than another classes but he can also set defense like Army Officers and order his soldier dodge from danger.Ranger can't equip heavy weapon,can drive tank.
Rogue class is good at light weapon like SMGs,Carbines,and also good at first aid.he can use artillery designator and many special weapons,he will give his soldier CQB ability too.Rogue can't equip heavy weapon,can drive plane.
Fighter class is good at launchers,even he is not very good at first aid, but he can set roadblock and order his soldier build smoke wall,Fighter can't equip pistol,can drive tank.
Barbarian class is good at machineguns, he can suppress enemy soldiers,even enemy player and he is very good at first aid, and he can order all his soldier suppress a single target,Barbarian can't equip pistol,can drive tank.
you can find the details in test Mission 3.
Tactical Mode will bring more battlefield feeling to ArmA,it's Player VS Player mode,both side will start with one Company's force, included 1 Company leader and 9 Squad leader,unlike CTI mode,no resource,but you need to capture checkpoint for bring reinforcement and hold some important point to bring advantage.I'll release it in later Version
Unlike mercenary, Army Officer have less personal ability but team ability.
Artillery Support/Air support/Recon plane and satellite for Tactical Mode.
to enable CQB ability,
to enable high dispersion mode(make unit hard to hit his target),just place a unit named Officer(HD) which can be found in TR - Soldiers/,every one in this Officer(HD)'s group will enable high dispersion mode even the tank and static weapon.
to enable set defense action,
this addweapon"TR_backpack"; [this]exec"\TR_OBJ\MISC\Fence.sqs"
