Cool [Gameplay] Logistics

I wanted to share some of the work on the logistics system of the mod.

This is the work of a bunch of people, R-DEVs and R-CONs, so I wont list them all here because I will probably forget some names.


Logistics Trucks

These are 2 man vehicles used to provide logistics support with supply crates and repairs (see bellow).

CREDITS:
Model: [R-DEV]Katarn
Texture: [R-DEV]Chuc
Export: [R-DEV]TrahnLee
Coding: [R-DEV]Jaymz & [R-DEV]dbzao




Supply Crates

Deployed by the logistics trucks and heavy transport helicopters (default right-click), provides faction specific infantry ammunition and supplies for deploying Forward Outposts. You are not able to rearm or build FOs from enemy supply crates.

CREDITS:
Model: [R-CON]Mescaldrav
Texture: [R-CON]Mescaldrav
Export: [R-DEV]Rhino
Coding: [R-DEV]Jaymz, [R-DEV]dbzao & [R-DEV]Rhino




Repair "Crates"

Deployed by the logistics trucks (default X), can repair vehicles in close proximity. Only one allowed per truck but with unlimited "supply", so you can move up, deploy a new one, and the old one will disappear. No need to rearm them like the supply crates. For 0.85, the wrench will only be used for mine disposal.

CREDITS:
Model: [R-DEV]Rhino
Texture: [R-DEV]Pride
Export: [R-DEV]Rhino
Coding: [R-DEV]Jaymz, [R-DEV]dbzao & [R-DEV]Rhino




Vehicle Resupply/Repair Depot

Positioned mostly at main bases, provide vehicle ammunition and repairs. On carrier maps they will appear at forward control points once captured.

CREDITS:
Model: [R-DEV]Rhino, [R-CON]Mescaldrav & I.N
Texture: [R-DEV]Rhino, [R-CON]Mescaldrav, [R-DEV]Matrox, Alina Gal & [R-DEV]Pride
Export: [R-DEV]Rhino
Coding: [R-DEV]Rhino, [R-DEV]Jaymz & [R-DEV]dbzao






APCs

These are going to be the main transport vehicles for the conventional forces. No more jeeps spawning from Forward Outposts and transport trucks being used once and abandoned everywhere. This will require a higher level of teamwork between squads and APCs will need to start acting like infantry transport and stop being used as "light tanks". Jeeps and transport trucks will feature on maps that fit the scenario of the map.

CREDITS:
Coding: [R-DEV]dbzao & [R-DEV]Jaymz




Kit Request

The only places to request kits will be the new Supply Crates (faction specific), the APCs and the Vehicle Depots. You will be able to request all types of kits (except crewman and pilot) from these places.

Coding: [R-DEV]dbzao & [R-DEV]Jaymz




Interview

I did an interview/talk with elemanoel for the Project Reality Argentina community where I talk about most of these changes. He asked questions in spanish and I answered them in english, so everyone here can probably follow it without many problems.

Very good work

I'm not sure I get it

The APCs are gonna be the primary transport, so will the number of jeeps that currently spawn at the start of the round be lowered?

the rest looks very nice

Awesome!

But does this mean that we can't request kits at Bunkers/Firebases/Rally Points?

I dont know I am not really fuzzed about the changes :/

Car(Hummers, jeeps etc) convoys was so much better and more epic on alot of maps especially ramiel, albasrah and those sort of maps.

People don't realize that autism doesn't mean they're "stupid". Just socially inept. Like rhino... > > or in a worst case scenario... Wicca. =)- Lithium fox
I found this sentence quite funny and since this is a war game forum I will put it here. No offense to the french just a good laugh.
