I'm afraid that poor insurgents in Al Basrah and Karbala are going to be f****d up to oblivion after these changes

Lovely. Very nice changes in general. Especially z-figthing, increased grenadier smoke duration, Ulyanovsk DOD and bug fixes.

Quote:
Decreased view distance to 500m from 650m.
But what is the reason for that? 650 m is already unrealistically short.

Quote:
Updated all concrete bridges to be non destroyable.
But why? Tactically destroying and repairing bridges was one cool feature that other games don't have.

Quote:
Fixed building forward outposts and emplacements inside statics.
What does that mean? We cannot fob inside buildings anymore? Would be quite a dramatic change.

Yeah, I feel those changes to be a bit contradictory. If CSB are going to be easier to drive through, why make bridges non destroyable?

That will make things harder for insurgents, since destroying a bridge can help a lot by limiting the ways that BLUFOR can approach a cache.


[R-DEV]Spec:The suggestion is not accepted, I merely wanted to comment.
Shame doesn't work on me, Nor on men of my caliber.

Overall a nice update.

The only gripe I have for now is that it sucks that concrete bridges can't be destroyed anymore, this was so fun (and useful for the Opfor) on Basra and Karbala, also on Grozny...
I don't see the reasoning behind this change at all. Even from the "realism" standpoint a concrete bridge should definitely be destroyed by a garry,
and as far as the gameplay goes, it wasn't OP or anything to destroy bridges with "mine IEDs", just a cool feature that most other games don't have...

Alright guys, Project Reality now has NO destroyable bridges.

But it is okay, because "close support bridge collision was updated to be easier to drive across".
Honestly... I don't even know what to say here.


To anyone curious - this small old bridge took 5 mine IEDs. Previously 2 mortar shell IEDs were enough to destroy it.
And this bridge on Grozny took 5 mortar shell ieds and 5 mine ieds (combined)


So, today PR lost one of its most iconic features. Thankfully we have better deployable close support bridges, yay.
