Regarding the first point, how do you define "killed at the same time"? Are we talking about the exact same moment, like if a single tank shell kills multiple civilians? Or does this also apply if a CAS rocket barrage kills multiple civilians successively within one second?

Regarding the second point, do I understand this correctly that civilians are now allowed to use epipens, medic bag and field patches? Are they allowed to stand next to armed friendlies?

To first: if multiple civilians die within 0.1second, the game treats it as only 1 died.
To second: Yes, you can use everything but a shovel and still be considered as not helping. Getting killed next to armed insurgent is still considered as helping, so if you revive an armed insurgent you may be killed for helping.

Lol, you are removing more content than you're adding. I never liked Jabal, but Qwai? By what metric is this map not up to PR standards? I guess in the comming updates you'll just keep removing old maps at ever faster pace since you considered such map to be a misfit...

random dev playin PR: "Hmmmmm, i dont like playing this map, even though people voted for it, it is in the game for a LONG LONG LONG LOOOOONG TIME, GONNA REMOVE IT!"


I only know that I know nothing. Só sei que nada sei. Sólo sé que no sé nada. So solo di non sapere nulla. Tantum scio me nihil scire. Je sais seulement que je ne sais rien. Tiedän vain, etten tiedä mitään. Ich weiss nur dass ich nichts weiss. Ek weet net dat ek niks weet nie. Wiem tylko, ?e nic nie wiem. Heoi ko ahau anake e mohio ana kahore au e mohio. Ngiyazi kuphela ukuthi angazi lutho.

Thanks for the response. I thought you had to wait 2 minutes after standing next to an armed insurgent in order to become a martyr, was I wrong or is it something you changed this patch?

There is a lot of confusion around these civilian mechanics so I think many in the community would appreciate an up-to-date list from the devs with all the requirements to get martyred. Also an in-game indictator of wether you can currently become a martyr or not would be extremely welcomed

Holi jeepsus! Why removing maps? My phone has more memory than laptop i play on,its 2022! Why not make a module instalation process like:
[1]Pr standard
[2]legacy maps

Devs, can you make a download link with ALL maps from the past versions so i can store in one folder? If you have no time/will to do that, can you tell me how to get said maps and run them in current ver. with bots for nostalgia. Im PR enjoyer since 2016
