    Now to be even more practical, I invite you to check the Suwalki gap map. I don't want to sound rude, but it's horrible. And I can't blame the author. Mainly because despite all the evidence, all the sources are wrong and are not DTM: they are all DSM, which means that you're importing a data thinking that the height of buildings and forests and trees and water wells and everything above the ground was removed from the data only to discover that it was not and a virtually flat area is now filled with bumps and lumps exactly where buildings and forest area. The right procedure should be to process this data using a mask to remove the height from the forests and building effectively converting it from DSM to DTM, but once the map is imported, not by me, the damage is done and I wouldn't dare asking the person to waste his time doing my job, again.



    Hmmm... wonder who that could be.. 


    I made that map knowing full well that it was DSM data but it is better than any of the other public data sources. The options are 90m srtm which is too low res. SRTM 30 which is incredibly noisy especially in low lying areas and where there is sand or exposed water. So for me the best data of the bunch currently available for free is JAXA.


    Now you can start crowing about LIDAR data. Believe me I have looked at a lot of this data and it is SHIT. It is just as noisy as the JAXA or SRTM 30... In some ways worse as the point spacing is much closer together so you get high frequency noise. Then of course you have all the erroneous data from solid objects, buildings, parked cars.


    Then your next problem with a lidar based map is vector data. Sure there is a nice free source in OSM which I use a lot but it is WAY too inaccurate to use with a LIDAR based map.

  2. Now I did notice that if you plot a direct route from the bridge layer across the river using Navmesh rather than a discreet route then it also seeks to avoid the river. A case could be made (as an extended feature or an enhancement) that a bridge layer given a direct breach route which crosses a river might have a special rule. This would require a fair amount of thought though:-

    1. Does the bridge layer have a bridge on board
    2. is the bridge long enough to cross the water body
    3. is there only one feature to cross.

    Currently it is using the "one size fits all" system.


    A discreet route of course could not know this as you could be sending anything into it.

  3. Well the system doesn't know what type of unit you are sending into a discreet breach route. You could be sending a miclic or an AEVinto it, in which case you would not want the system to turn off the Navmesh following behaviour and sending them to their deaths in a river. This decision has to be with the mission creator. 

  4. Ok I am guessing the route in question is the one near 3/A. This route was plotted with navmesh on which is why the route is avoiding the water. (With "Hold alt to plot navmesh route" off / unticked ) if you try and plot a route between WP 6 and 7 the route will avoid the water. If you instead hold alt (to plot a non navmesh route) between wp 6 and 7 then the unit lays a bridge just fine.


    What Nils is saying is about subsequent units During runtime if plotting a navmesh route after the bridge is laid will find the route across. This will not work in the mission editor though as the laid bridge is not present while plotting the routes. In this case you have to use a NON-Navmesh to get them across the bridge which will be there.

     hate to admid this, but from session as Scimitar gunner with hand cranks..  i was totally fatigued xP   

    Try it with traverse wheels!!. I can hit a moving target while on the move.

  6. Honestly my opinion is a bit biased. I have traverse wheels and like the current system. IMHO what is needed is access to an sollution which allows people to make traverse wheels at a reasonable cost. Both th U-HID and Leo Bodnar cards allow for rotary encoder input (essential for proper traverse wheels).

    Playable Recoiless Rifles. Cool




    How to manually reload it? WOW. HAHAHAHA. I dig that


    Press F3 (reload position)

    Open the breach

    Remove the shell

    Press V to load new shell

    Close the breach



    Between the Remove shell and press V to load shell you can select ammo with INS and DEL (if you have more than one type of ammo present). In the mission editor it can be given HEAT or HEP or a mix of the 2.
