Are these the smoke grenades used by all soldiers or the smoke grenade used by de squad leader ?


Because I need to tell, they look a little too... "rainbow"

Not all sorts of smokes are on that one pic.

I dunno... A smoke grenade is a smoke grenade, there is really no way to tell IRL who threw it...But since I cant really think about how it would change the gameplay itself(apart from marking landing spots, but we had that already), I say it is ok.

The smoke grantes are used by squad leaders and you can see the china and GB one beacuse GB and China is not on the map we where playing ;)

Surely these will be SL smoke grenades...

What about PINK..
Maybee for the Brits??

Sergeant_Banner
2008-07-27, 18:20
Well, since the image wont load here, my 2 cents are:

Easily noticing enemy or friendly smoke. You're a brit & see orange smoke. Instantly you think "Enemys in smoke cover" and fire !

Unless we truely know the meaing of multicoloured smoke, its gonna be a decidong factor for some ;)

Sarge.

Perhaps they mean the SLs are getting all these kinds of smoke grenades, or maybe they're just, as earlier suggested, showing us Ejod is staying.

:lol: Clearly you were joking just now. I just hope that this is a joke. Because yes it makes it easier to tell apart from enemy concealment and your own team but thats the whole point of smoke, to make your self harder to see. Not "OH LOOK ORANGE!! THATS NOT US! FIIIIRE!!".

I hope you can see what i mean. :cool:

I think this is the "9" somke so the Sl and all other kits will have grey smoke this is just a extra on for Sl to use when calling in a chopper etc. Its not going to be the smoke you use to cover an advance etc.

(Don't qoute me on this im not a dev :p)

But... thats not enough colors. Can they have different fuse times, so when the soldiers of all nations meet and throw them in the air they will look like a rainbow?

Actually, a smoke color like pink would fit great in a desert situation. WW2, brits painted their landies desert pink so they may camo better in to the desert. Now, if you could have that on smoke nades...think about it!! Devs are on to something

That's pretty weird. All countries use white smoke for primary smoke grenades. And now everyone will know who threw the smoke!

CareBear
2008-07-27, 19:56
irl such as in afgan the different forces of the coalitions have different coloured smoke

one such instance was the US were firing on a british patrol couldnt get them on radio so they used the coloured smoke to tell em it was friendly

so different coloured smokes are important!

also DB aint lieing

the smoke is used for marking friendly targets for CAS,


as is at the mo, friendly's mark them self's with the green so they arnt fired apon,

problem is that the hostile SL can also mark his troops with the green smoke

Sabre_tooth_tigger
2008-07-27, 20:41
I guess this was meant as a joke but I really would like to see squad leader to have access to several smoke types for directing & designating his troops, covering fire from apc, tank, aircraft etc

Even better would be a smoke only m203 so it was a bit more instant and with more distance possible.

Give the SL a flare gun maybe for calling in help, or signalling an advance, etc

If thats the case then you could have explained it more and not just shown a pic of random soldiers chucking some rainbow smoke(no offense).

Will everyone have access to these colored smokes?
If not what kits will?
What is your(DEVs) intention by implementing this?

You know that sort of thing. Because at this point im very skeptical at this feature(although you bet your ass im still giving .8 a run for its money:)).

You can tell how tense people really are about the 0.8 release. They could have put signal smoke grenades but the reaction wouldnt be as funny. Be seriously Im gonna give you something to joggle the 3 brain cell average in the crowd.

Why in the world would you think that they would bother with this change if your already told on screen when you are shooting at friendlies? Unless...............mmmmm thats real toughie isnt it:roll:?

about damn time we could multi-colored smoke

Can't wait to steal enemy kits and throw friendly smoke down..

hopefully teammates won't be on our maps, cause then it will be hard for people to use enemy smokes as an advantage

which the entire "Kit stealing" thing, because of smoke, is one less reason to want to die =D

So is this what the smoke is for? Would have been nice if a the DEV who started this thread said that from the get go.

But then theres no room for blind speculation...

:roll:

and yes it's only on the officer kit... it doesn't replace any color of smoke so you can either throw 2 green signals or 2 faction signal smokes or 1 green and 1 faction signal.

worst addition to a mod ever. :-)

what!!??? keep the somkes as they are!

Hope this is all a joke..lol...

uhhhh kidding right?

MAINERROR;746070']You seriously are way too fraught ... just calm down and wait till you can play that goddamn game. :roll:

Of course... I think we've forgotten what a SMOKE FLARE is and a SMOKE GRENADE is. SMOKE GRENADES generate a fast and large amount of vision obscuring smoke, whereas SMOKE FLARES burn slower and longer to produce a signal. If we don't bring back the SMOKE FLARES (Removed in v0.7 or v0.75) there's going to be some serious venting on the forums from angry players.

Seriously, people are already flaming this in the Dev Journal section. Why I say this is that we need to free up the Green and Red SMOKE GRENADES for faction use, then implement the Green and Red SMOKE FLARES as signal flares for thier intentional use of indicating a downed pilot (Red) and a friendly Landing Zone (Green).

Reserved SMOKE FLARE colors:
Green (Landing Zone), Red (Downed Pilot).

Standard SMOKE GRENADE colors:
Blue, Green, Grey, Orange, Pink, Red, Violet, White, Yellow.

Reserved SMOKE GRENADE colors:
Grey (Standard smoke screen, utilized as a universal color.)

Currently -
US: Purple (Violet)
GB: Blue
China: Orange
MEC: Yellow
Miltia: Gold
<Note: By the way, Yellow and Gold is like... Basically the same thing.>

Alternate method -
U.S.: Yellow
G.B.: Blue
PLA: Red
MEC: Violet
Militia: Green
Insurgent: White


I highly suggest giving YELLOW to U.S., BLUE to G.B., and RED to China. These colors fit thier respective team well and will cause little conflict of intrest between players complaining about colors and thier use as designating smoke signals.

I highly suggest giving VIOLET to MEC as it is a fictional military and no ones going to really complain about "Gee, why does my country get the purple stuff.". Besides, it's a fitting color as most Middle Eastern countries would accept it as a "royal" kind of color. As opposed to most other factions considering it... Fruity.
<Note: Mind you, I'm trying to break this down in a realistic and logical sense before people start having heated arguements. This is as easy as it's going to get, and like I said it seems to fit the faction well and not in a sarcastic manner either.>

I highly suggest giving WHITE to Insurgent SL's as they're basically a under equipped faction and aren't going to exactly be making high tactical value manuvers with smoke color designations.

I highly suggest giving GREEN to Militia as it is a logical choice as it will blend in with thier wooded surroundings. Also I supurbly doubt they're going to be calling in for a helo Landing Zone anytime soon.

But anyways... Yep, looks like they're serious and it's time for a serious reply on the matter before things explode between players and developers. I urge you to think this suggestion over carefully as it was analyzed in depth... Just trying to stop a problem before it happens gentlemen.

Remember... Bring back SMOKE FLARES for designating a downed pilot (Red) and designating a friendly landing zone (Green) NOT SMOKE GRENADES for that use.

If you read through the thread you would see that its not and you would also see that it makes perfect sense. The way they presented it doesnt show that but it does.

Default smoke grenades are still grey/white. It's just officer and pilot smoke grenades that are colorful.

Insurgent smoke should be black because they will be burning tires

When I used to be in the army (ACR - Czech Rep.), we used coloured smokes / flares a lot. More colours = more signals, basically the more the better. The only problem is when you have similar colours and people are not sure if it's yellow or orange for example. But according to what devs said so far, there's no reason to believe it's going to be a mess. So thumbs up from me :thumbsup:

purple is the national *Edit color

thats why they chose it :D

nah just kidding, Id keep it like the smokes are now (.75), the exciting thing about smoke is that everyone uses the same so u sometimes cant tell whos smoke it is.

I also think this change will make the games more chaotic (smacktard1995:"lolz look at me smokez I make rainbowz")

My impression is this is signal smoke only available to officers and such so the normal smoke will still be similar?
