Tracer Colours

Postby loosebruce » Wed 26 Jun 2013 16:44

A small aesthetic issue regarding the Tracer colours for PACT weapons.

Would it be possilbe to make PACTS tracer colour different for the following weapons? I think it would make a nice polishing feature for the game.

PACT
AKS/AKM/RPK/PKT for Infantry and lights APCs - Green
DShk / 12.7mm on BTRs and Tanks - Red
Yak B 12.7mm on Hinds- Green
GSh-23L - 23mm on MIG/Sukhoi airframes - Yellow/Green


Edit , feel free to post other units that have incorrect tracer colours and I will add them to the list.

NATO

I feel like the game would greatly benefit from little flavor things like this.

Can be red, green and white.
Yak B 12.7mm on Hinds- Green

Can be yellow-red. http://www.airliners.net/photo/Czech-Re ... 0815441/L/

Current yellow-red tracers is fine. No need to change.

Hmm, tracers are correctly represented in ArmA II.. Or maybe do you miss OFP campaign ?

If yes, then Cold War Rearmed² is your mod :)

Well, the colours of the tracers all depends on what kind of ammunition they use... At least it's like that today for NATO units, and I doubt it was much different in the 80's.

yeah it'd be really nice to get green/yellow tracers for PACT forces
