Custom Gunsites
« on: January 04, 2024, 11:20:10 AM »
There are dozens of custom gunsites available for use in AH, is there an help page somewhere that explains the intent or use of them? Multiple rings both solid and patterned, offset marks which I assume is for deflection but what ranges, etc./

x2 - I'm looking specifically for the "death dot" that Grizz and others used in AoM.  I can't find my file for it, and I'm returning shortly and need it as I've been using it for years, and I'm too old to adjust to a new one, heh.

All sites are pretty much the same.

Vertical lines are for lining up center
horizontal for wing level
Center dots/crosses = pipper for aiming guns
the first mark below the pipper (closest) is usually for rocket aiming
the lowest marker below the pipper for bombing
Circles are used for judging range

So most sites are pretty easy to figure out how to use.

In the default load of sites the "ukTp1MKIII" is a single red dot, and the "usaK14crs" is a sing plus sign. either should work for you.

Kini, going through my old AH stuff I have found a bunch gun sights that you may or may not use.

There are duplicates and triplicates and are in no particular order. Some are from AHI, some are player made.

Bravo Zulu to the contributors who made them.

I also found some old AH logos for those who wish to trip down memory lane.

Aha!  Wicked, tyvm for this - I can easily adjust the size of that dot too IIRC in paint or whatever, in fact I even recognize the file name from long ago.  Awesome, thanks again!

Thank you! This was in information I was looking for. Hard to find explanation any where in the AH site or fourms. Almost tribal knowledge as my old boss would say.
