  1. Khe Sanh issues

    Posted by SeaCow52, 17-01-22
    Thread: Khe Sanh issues
    Does the Tracker Module not work in the Khe Sanh map? How about the Zeus Add Editable Objects? I cannot get either one to work in Khe Sanh.

    Just my $.02:

    I think the idea behind Mike Force is great. The problem is that too many players come in and want to play a video game and not a simulation; they want an arcade game, and my...

    I can see your point. I've said this in relation to other issues, not ARMA or gaming, but it applies: "Not everyone can be the quarterback."

    I think that statement pretty much sums it up. For...

  5. Bomb Computer F-4 Backseater (WSO)

    Posted by SeaCow52, 26-10-21
    Only a player gets the bomb computer between the WSO's knees, not a playable unit.

    Also, the player has a black and white bombsight display, but a playable unit has a color display. Additionally,...

    I just figured out part of the issue: Only a "PLAYER" backseater (WSO) gets the bomb computer. A "PLAYABLE" unit does not.

  9. Wolfpack Pilots and Parachutes

    Posted by SeaCow52, 21-10-21
    This may seem minor, and is easily fixable if using the editor to make missions, but the F-4 pilots default to wearing a parachute. If they eject, they are still wearing it.

    In reality, the...

    Chinook. Entered service in 1962, so they would make a great supply helo. It would also be nice if they could move vehicles and heavier gear via slingload, to better supply further FOB's.

    Any recommendations on how to clear an AO in Mike Force when an enemy asset is 75 meters out in the water? I actually swam out and got a screenshot of a body underwater.

    What is the key to building the various bridges? I can get a single short section at the shore, but that is all. I cannot add additional sections let alone get anything further out into the water.
