Collisions for GV's
« on: May 20, 2021, 03:38:49 PM »
Any way to turn on collisions in the arena for ground vehicles without major problems or extreme re-writing of code? At the very least a trial period and see how it goes?

I know internet lag/latency (packet loss) has an effect on plane collisions as we see some players complaining on 200 they went down while the other participant
suffered almost no damage. The two players did not see the same thing at the same exact moment.

I drive the M-8 mostly and if an enemy tank misses his shot at close range I simply drive right through him and escape unharmed because I can get away before
he can swivel his turret around, especially if it is a German tank.

I think it would be fun and add another element to the ground game if you could ram an enemy tank with your tank and do damage, ie. in the case your turret has
been taken out by gv fire or an enemy aircraft. Of course the ramming tank would take damage as well.

It would seem a Tiger 2 would be a beast in the ramming of other smaller tanks. The Russians historically rammed German Panzers, Tigers, and Panthers with their t-34's as a tactic to disable them.

I think it would really be fun to ram planes on the runway.......an absolute hoot.  :rofl

Can you shoot up an enemy tank while parked in it?

As long as you put money in the parking meter, you are good to go.  :D

No, but you can shoot enemy tanks while parked inside an enemy tank. Have done this in a jeep, and in the confusion while parked in Enemy #1 shooting at Enemy #2, Enemy #2 killshooted themselves trying to get to me. Unfortunately I was laughing so hard I missed Enemy #1 moving forward so he could get a shot on me.

If I am not mistaken, you do damage to planes in tanks. Or has that been changed?
I remember taking off on camped runways and have received collision messages.

I swear I've collided with tanks while in a plane before.. usually just before hitting the ground so not sure which of the two did the damage :)
