Ferret Entac - Is it small, or is it medium?

Postby powderfreak » Wed 19 Oct 2016 22:44

Hello Forum,

really not sure if I post this in the right place, but I seem to have found a "small" bug concerning the size of a unit. The ANZAC Tank Destroyer (under Vehicles) FERRET ENTAC is characterised as being a medium sized unit. Compared to many other medium or even small units (for example the British FV601 SALADIN is certainly bigger but still a "small" unit) this seems wrong to me.

Edited to add screenshots of the FERRET ENTAC and a comparison to the SALADIN.

Any ideas on that? Am I doing a mistake here or is it a bug?

Don't decide the size of the unit based on the ingame model. Check their IRL dimension.

It's probably not intended. There are so many units in the game that it's hard to keep them consistent, I guess- especially for units like Ferret that aren't used much.

there is a general inconsistency regarding the size of several units in game...

but doesnt mean this shouldnt be changed... so probably if you are lucky...

What, you don't think a T-64A is the same size as an Udaloy?

Saladin:
Length 4.93 m
Width 2.54 m
Height 2.39 m

Ferret:
Length 3.7 m
Width 1.91 m
Height 1.88 m

In other words, the Ferret is significantly smaller. Agreed it should have the Small stat ingame, though I don't think I have ever seen one actually fielded and there are honestly more pressing issues.

Pretty sure it would take a whopping editing of exactly a single string.

Pretty sure you're right, but Eugen has a habit of ignoring important changes that also probably involve editing a single var in favor of unimportant ones like this one.
