Default No changing clothes when picking up kits...

I have heard other players suggest this and it got me thinking as well...

I dont think I have ever seen or heard of a coalition soldier changing to look like the enemy in real life due to friendly fire. The enemy may but it would take longer than 1 second to change ya know, or maybe give it like a minute to pick up a enemy kit? ? ?

Also maybe only the primary weapon only would change? I dont know if game would allow this, for example I am a US Marine pick up a taliban kit, instead of turning into him I just pick up his weapon...

To my knowledge, this is not possible in the BF2 engine. This is why we pick up "kits" and not weapons.

I'm not sure exactly what the "kit" is comprised of, but I'm assuming that the kit includes the entire weapon/equipment loadout as well as the external appearance/skin of the player.

I'm sure one of the artists can provide a better, more detailed answer. And I could also be wrong, but if it's possible then it would have been done long ago.

Fixing this would involve creating unique geometries for a bunch of factions if I recall correctly. I believe that it is being worked on, but don't count on it happening overnight. Also, re-suggestion.

Yeah, I guess cloning all x teams kit goes and then redoing each one with y's guns, but I guess the only way you could actually 'force' them to change kit is by spawning it at their feet, which still leaves you are square 1.

I dont think its possible?
