find a ts3 to play on i can suggest the heros and generals open team speak at 91.250.118.151
great guys over there, I have no internet till thrus so I wont be able to introduce you to anyone but say you are a friend of max cups and just getting started they should be some help.

for real advice, save up dont buy modified ammo for your guns it drains credits like no other. play 'training' before you do anything else and im not talking training missions. after you play training you get a free lvl and a free perk/badge.

capturing points is ther only thing that matters in matches, they net you both the most xp and credits but they also help you to win the match. unlock the kubal or jeep as quick as possible then I would say get a rocket launcher as your first new weapon but its crazy expensive to use so thats up to you. every vehical minus the motocycles have the ability to bring either a health and ammo kit or a panzerfaust that takes 30 or so seconds to respawn after picking up. health/ammo kit is essential but there are situations the faust box is better but those are few.

also everything you use needs to be replenished so when viewing the weapon or equipment make sure you have it sent to auto replenish or you will find yourself in the middle of the match with no more gernades or ammo when you spawn.

i would suggest to just start with one character keep him a soldier forever once you get him up in lvl's invest in a second character and see where you want to take him, whether you want to make him a tanker or a pilot or a para or a recon or a general or even just a second soldier but with a different loadout.

different weapons unlock certain other weapons, if you like machine guns keep using the g43 if you would rather use the firehose that is the mp40 you need to use the mp34 shit gun for a while to unlock the mp40. gold can curcomvent all of these unlock things but it aint cheap. using gernades and explosives helps you unlock more explosives, mines, bazokas, more gernades, at gernades ect. same goes for classes you have to have a certain badge para drop nine to unlock the fg42 and same goes for unlocking tanks you gotta grind that tank badge. lucky for pilots the only thing they unlock is more bombs on the plane, piloting in this game is kinda lame in my opinion and only use it rarely when there is a tank that needs to die.

i have the most experience playing as german but i have a couple lvl 10's on american and know every single weapon of theirs to a tee. the tompson is a god send and so is the bar. the bar is probably the best gun in the game at this moment, you see one pick it up.

Seems like they've reduced the cost of zooka ammo down by about half. Still too much, compared to the cost of tank ammo and repair, but it's a step.

I read 1632, Nazis in Fantasyland Quest and I want to run a campaign that's similar. I don't think there's a name for such a genre. Zipang, Lest Darkness Fall and a Conneticuit Yankee In King Arthur's Court are other examples.

Instead of a West Virginia town circa 2000AD, though? It'd be a southern Italian fishing village and military port during the 80s, when fascist & communist terrorist groups were running around. And instead of 1632 Europe, it'd be a fantastical setting with magic and gods.

What'd be a good system that can stat out a pikeman, modern soldier, /and/ have magic? Preferably with a crunchy mass combat system.

Does anyone have any links to articles or even pics of the Italian Navy during the 1980s, btw?
>> No. 49087 ID: f2400b
Uh... well, I don't know how accurate this is going to be for your needs, but in very very VERY rough terms, Shadowrun might fit. You can stat out modern soldiers by not packing them to the gills with chrome, it has a magic system, and melee is something built in (including spear/pikemen)

It doesn't really have great mass combat systems, though. You might try asking /tg/ because they'll likely have a better idea.

Do you know how infantry sections/squads would be organized, so I could inventory out firearms? What about shotguns, pistols & SMGs? Or BM59s for recruits? What about ammo, total? Spares ammo/parts/guns that could be on the ship or on base?

I was thinking the military port base would have:

x5 VM 90T Torpedo IMV
x2 Ambulanza VM 90
x1 ACM Iveco 80/90 4X4 Logistics Truck
x15 OF-40 MBT

Herpdaderped and bought Borderlands(1) GOTY and Borderlands 2 before I found Borderlands 2 GOTY somewhere else for cheaper.

Anyone want to trade have codes that can be activated through steam, only payed $10 so something around that would be nice.

I didn't get Battlefield 4 ever. 3 was the last one I gave an honest chance, and 4 was clearly just more of the same (but with Asians and bad netcode).

2142 was the last good Battlefield game, shame its setting is being cannibalized for DLC.

I haven't played many space sims in the past years & most of them that I did play, played well with keyboard and mouse. Heck, nowadays many of the space sims have a large advantage for mouse players due to the finer aim & no need for autoaim.
But I remember from the old days, how much fun I had with space sims & joysticks. It was really part of the experience and it was great.
My last joystick was a Sidewinder & it was pretty good, until it lost the ability to zero itself & would drift off.

Anyhow, with a new generation of space sims coming on, I was thinking of getting a joystick again.

My short list:
Thrustmaster T.16000M: Great precision, good quality, but no HOTAS and shitty throttle.
Thrustmaster T.Flight Hotas X: Cheapo HOTAS, but gets the job done. Lacks hats.
CH fighterstick & throttle: Oldskool as fuck, and solid as hell. But looks silly nowadays.The way the X & Y axis interact make me think it might not be the best choice for me, but the hardcore space simmers seem to love it.
Saitek X55 Rhino: Sexy & good all around. Even has split throttle & everything. But it's Saitek... They're known to drop the ball fairly frequently on the X52.

I'm currently leaning towards the X55. But I'm having doubts. The T.16000M might be a better choice to get me going until some new stuff comes along. Supposedly, Star Citizen will work together with companies to make SC joysticks that are a perfect fit for the game's mechanics for instance.

What's your take on this?

I picked up my T.Flight Hotas X for peanuts on sale at MicroCenter. Great for the cost.

I'm agreeing with the collected Operators about rudders as I fly in Star Citizen, though. Twist ruddering is annoying. Might have to buy some pedals when I upgrade my video card.

Pic related. Can't wait to start racing it next week.

Cougar manufacturing ended two years ago. If you can find one on ebay unopened, that's really the only way to get one new.

  Insurgency is having a free weekend, and is on sale for 50% off. Picked it up the other day and am having a blast with coop and the free hunt DLC.

Nothing like having a little kid scream "Oorah!" into the mic to get you motivated.
>> No. 48585 ID: 845e3a
At least this last expansion thing toned down the super-rpg spam a lot. They do it once in a while, but not a guaranteed 2x per respawn wave like they used to.

Panj is fucking hilarious as a map, if you ever played Peak.
>Hay guize, we realize the bots can see through the foliage on Peak, so we're removing it from all coop map rotations until we can fix it. In the meantime, have a map that's 75% covered in foliage, and a new one-life bot hunt mode! HAVE FUN, FAGGOTS!

I do like how the FAL is in 7.62x51mm instead of 7.62x39mm now, though. It really does feel quite punchy. Way better than the old AK-clone FAL. Not sure if they fixed the SKS's 30-rounds in a 20-round mag thing yet.

M203 fucking sucks dick, dunno about the GP-30, probably the same. Why in the fuck would you add a grenade launcher, with no sights whatsoever, and a huge amount of random spread to boot? Using it is pretty painful, although I'm slowly getting the hang of it. I can get it to pop close to where I wanted it about 50% of the time, which isn't terrible.

Weapon collision sucked when it first happened, although what little I got to play of the post-patch-patch last night, it did seem improved. All it does mean is that now instead of humping a wall as cover, you have to stay a half-meter or so back from it.
Which oddly increases your survival rate vs. bots, because it usually puts you juuuuust far enough back to cut down on some of their magic corner-pen shots. Something to do with source engine and corners; it appears to be there but as far as penetration is concerned it isn't or some shit, I forget. It's been an issue ever since forever.

Hunt mode is fucking dope though, as long as your team isn't full of HUEHUEHUEs or XAXAXAXAXAs. Which there are entirely too many of due to the freeeeee weeeeekend. Any team that communicates & provides overwatch for each other can pretty much waltz through the maps, except maybe Panj, for the aforementioned reason.

Also, if it's not entirely clear, Smoke isn't worth a fuck in any coop mode. If you're near the outside edge of the cloud, bots can still see you. If they knew where you were prior to the smoke going off, they have a very good chance to see and fire on you, depending entirely on how the bot config is set up. If you're playing on hardcore, you're fucked, basically.

Sounds like a shitty time. At least you know to expect problems during beta and early adoption stuff. It serves a purpose. You get an early peek at the game except not in this case apparently, sorry m8 and they get user feedback on problems. Other people benefit from your suffering.
The real problem is when they leave in gamebreaking shit after the actual release.

"Hey, let's release a day-one patch to fix our shite game, but let's have the patch cause random corruption of user game profiles. Then let's take two fucking months to fix the problems created by our patch."

You know, speaking as someone who's actually played the game...

When all the dipshits aren't spamming the servers so bad it's fucking up everything (some idiots were doing a DDoS which screwed a lot of stuff up) it's actually quite fun. It's a mixture of Haven and Hearth, EVE Online, and a 'traditional' MMO.

Kind of funny for them to tote the SJW badge when Blood Dragon delightfully went don't-give-a-fuck 80s complete with dude-banter of "yeah I know you're a black cyborg that likes dudes, faget".

More annoyed that Far Cry 2 did such a piss job of letting us indulge in the interesting dynamics of an African Bushwar. I want to slap the guy who came up with the smarmy ingame "Oh by the way while you work for my faction my boys will still shoot you to keep up disguises. >:^)".
