  1. 1-''but can I really ask for his time to import everything as I would have done myself ''....I have offered many times on this board, some have asked, and recieved their map. So yes. 2- ''There is always the trial and error factor to take into account, not to mention the time spent on pre and post-processing the data itself, when you can never be sure until you have actually done that it will work out.'' So, this is why I offer, my experience when actually done that it will work. Why would you want to add a feature that would take many hours to master, when a source(s) are readily available? 3- I always offer a detail level for the end user, be it a hight-map blank, to a full edited terrain. The call is yours, depending on the detail determines to time to complete. Now if you really want to work, a height-map can be developed, and you can fill your free time, and love of creating to finish the map, Bottom line-You have options right now.
  2. "since nobody does it for us".......No. We do ask for the data to work with, and return PM's and such, otherwise one would think -we-are not not really needed, and wasting our time, and effort. You can get the maps you want, however, there must be some work from the request to help the map builders. Is it to much to ask for a map request?..........:) The sequence to have a map built. 1. Determine the area needed. 2. Find the southwest corner of the map in lat/long. 3. Gather the Lidar/Dtem data for the area 4. If avail the shape files for roads/rivers,water, etc. 5. Obtain pics/google map views of said area. 6. Place in a package and request on this thread, or ask for area telling map builders you have the necessary data. 7. Establish comms between you and map builder throughout the process with feedback. 8. Most importantly, rodents must be sacrificed till project is complete to keep the GODS happy...this may ,or not work all the time,,it never hurts. Hope this clears up the process.............:)
  3. Can you post ammo type/range, AAR time pic showing the impact with the data, and a pic of how the AFV's are positioned, ie: side on/head on etc? From this we can see what is actually happening. Thank you
  4. Oooops, forgot the smiley, it was posted as a wit/jk/funny.....:) And the #45......now you can read my mind, such as it is.....JK, and a more quantifiable data is needed for sure . I will be happy with what ever methods comes about for the record,
  5. Walkman's wired to comms....ah those were the days my fren.
  6. We could read "hope of collecting more votes" in another way, but I degrees....LOL Not my AFV!
  7. The commander is the loader, so it would make since for him to change/load ammo types as needed, gunner must select correct ammo from switch panel, but has no real control what ammo type is feed into the breaches. In a Scorpion turret there is a ready rack just to CMDR's right on floor, main rounds are behind him, coax, well everywhere....The commander is a very busy crew member in this type of arrangement.....how would I know that???
  8. In the back part of the turret is the line charge/rocket equipment, as in this video....https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=M1150+Assault+Breacher+Vehicle-
  9. Seraphim00 Posted October 8, 2020 (edited) PM me with the data, and I'll take a look. Last person that I built the map for, has not got back to look at for over a month.
  10. DTEM or other such data is required.
  11. Its NOT just his position. At all. ok , lets check the posts about this issue.........ummmmmm.....yep same people. Rather its YOUR position that they are good as is..........never posted that, I stated that there are work arounds, and its a sim...your reaching . TGIF is not the only venue or place where people play....No shit! There is room for improvement...as many posts have pointed out. I suspect that this issue (and I may be incorrect here) that it's more about "hit score" that traverse speed on a known fire control system, with limited traverse speed. My 2cents has been spent, feel free to carry on.....:)
  12. No one is saying this is realistic, this is a simulation....which seems to be lost on some, again. It is YOUR position that this is a "bad system", you view only, and after the reason why we have such from ESim. Simple dont use them, let the rest of us use them as in TGIF. We don't hear players saying they don't want to use them in the planing phase, thous, many find them useful and effective, and this with their manual traverse. We, some of us have waited a long time for these AFV's to be in the sim and are grateful for the team's work in obtaining the time, effort, and resources to place said AFV's in the list of available AFV's Let the search for other methods play out.
  13. Driver prepare to advance hard left for gunner, gunner take over...., or Gunner trg left prepare for 2000 taps.........your call. Like I have said, veh position is important, tapping the keyboard....not so much. The Scimitar/Scorpion is easily solved with the option of powered traverse, let's not over think this issue. We have been here before on this issue, we have been using these AFV's for some time now. We can, and will adapt to each and every type of fire control system, thats just who we are. This is not WOT.
  14. Hey, it's not me saying .. very hard to use. I have no issues with hand cranking........:)
  15. For the Scorpion the option for Powered traverse could be used, as both systems were avaib. Many countries had such equipment on their Scorpions. Simple fix for this turret.
  16. " very hard to use"......compared to a powered traverse, yes. Compared to a Inf with a RPG and a trg at 100 meters....not so much....:)
  17. I like to see my loader feed the gun and not throw casings out of the hatch, that's why spent casing bins were invented........JK'ing Maybe a action when the :Reload" command in activated, so we can see the loader working (throwing out casings) , and not making coffee.......boiling vessel?.....
  18. AFV's with manual traverse are I would say are the best the sim can do without having such equipment on your desktop (Dark). Is it perfect, no, is it a pain in the ass, sure. Having served in such AFV;s we found many tricks to make this system of traverse work, and without dare I say without issues. Crews found that having their AFV in the proper bearing towards the target, through proper driver commands. Directing the driver to point the gun also works. Only with a hand crank device will this get any better for the operator of such manual traverse. Maybe a steering wheel would work? I don't have a issue with them in the sim, and a great deal of TGIF missions use them with players openly taking such AFV's to command. Trust me, as a operator/instr of the Scorpion turret with power traverse system I feel your pain, but I like many adapt and over come such issues, the benefits out weight any traverse issues of these AFV's. Just my 2 cents, after taxes......:)
  19. thanks, veh repair team sent to fix.....stand-by.....
  20. You should not, to be safe copy them to a folder elsewhere till you confirm the install is complete....as a rule backup everything you need , just to be safe.:) safety first, not really...coffee first, then safety")
  21. You may want to create a ref for your fire mission, a box, a rep point, AB-xxx /with time so you can keep track of where missions are located. When in large arty missions, one can loose track pretty easily if a method of the fire missions locations are not referenced some how. Placing box/ref off map, then drag to loc is when called is one such method to save time during the hectic mission time.
