In my opinion, the modern FCS system is still not sufficiently portrayed. Can we expect this level of FCS in the near future?
I'm sure this comment won't at all annoy those that know how much effort went into getting FCS into the game.


But yes more work is planned on FCS for vehicles.

Also at the end of the video in the OP it is shown how our FCS is planned to be improved in the future.
Understood. So, designing an effective gun control system while the tanks or APCs move in the BF2 engine is more difficult than I thought and it should be realized in a different way than what is presented in the video I linked. :q

If it was easy, it would've been implemented long ago. Threads for FCS, Fast Ropes, Dragging Wounded players, removing the seat limit and a bunch of others have existed basically since the forum was opened up, and a couple of these tough nuts Mats and Alon were able to crack in the past few years.

We're versed enough in military hardware to know we're not there quite yet, but we also know that overcommitting to getting an aspect of an otherwise ready feature(in this case the stabiliser aspect of modern FCS) done would've meant pushing the release date back an as of yet unknown amount of time. We're not asking for your patience to lead you on endlessly only to not deliver, or because we're maliciously keeping things hidden from you, but because we'd like to make sure it works far more often than it does not.

VTRaptor: but i only stopped for less than 10 secs and that fucking awesome dude put 2 of them
]CIA[ SwampFox: well my definition of glitching is using an enemy kit to kill the enemy
Just_Dave: i have a list about PR players, and they r categorized by their skill

Devs will figure out how to change the types of targets as well. Someday. They get shit done. Marvelous. I agree with Frontliner.

Congratulations on another epic release, team! I was playing the new version for a while last night, Fields of Kassel, what a gem . Really enjoyed the heavy sounds of tanks, the Garand firing sound, planes flying over, dog fights, AA-trucks, good teamwork. I had a blast!

Does anyone know if there are "Historical" servers, that play WW2, Vietnam and Falklands often? Or events? I could really use a frequent dose of historical combat, gets me going more than modern combat .

The shells being affected by gravity is a much-needed add, it raises the skill level and makes it harder to hit coppers.

The ww2 planes is just a wet dream.

Thanks PR team.

Unfortunately there are no dedicated servers for WW2 and Vietnam maps (which I would like to see too). However I've seen events from time to time.

Thank you! Said more than should need to be said. Keep doing what you're doing, ignore the haters and impatient gimme's. Cheers to the Dev team for your recent work on these updates!

This is actually mindblowing. Now Squad's only "advantages" are graphics and audio.

Great job.

I don't even think we need all the high tech most vehicles have nowadays. IRL they are not designed for a fair fight anyway, they're designed to win but in PR, if everything gets automated: 1. where's the fun in that? 2. vehicle engagements will be basically press button to lock then hold left click

Unlike the ballistics and rangefinder that do add some complexity and will require some player skill to master and take advantage of, target tracking might be on the other end of this spectrum
