Dude you gotta make a video of it. That's epic

Hey NWI

I've been playing INS since the first version many years ago, the second version, and now Sandstorm. I pre-ordered the game even before I got the chance to test in the alpha release.

I'm wondering if the bushes are intended to be solid rock or if you will be making them into something we can use as concealment? It was a feature many of us loved in the older versions. I searched through the forums and there are many posts about it, but nothing from NWI about it.

Could you pretty please respond?

Thanks!

What are your system specs? Do you have all the latest drivers? I don't have the issue you're talking about.

Precinct was awesome in the closed alpha. I'm not sure how other testers didn't play it. Maybe hey were part of the earlier testing group? I was part of the second group so perhaps it was only tested during the second phase?

As for it not running smoothly on systems; I have a 7700K, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, and a 1080GTX. I haven't seen my FPS drop below 60 during massive fights.

It would add to the immersion and realism of the game.

When / where did the devs say it wouldn't happen?

@gsg_9_lightning He did lose some time by keeping the magazine. However, he had time to do that.

As for the speed reload video, I can do that too with my carbine if I want. It's a static drill. Notice, though, how they slam it with their palm heels rather than fingers after inserting the mag.

There are some elite military units that have exceptional training, and are able to keep their wits about them in the most dire of circumstances. Navy Seals are a perfect example of this. Stress inoculation training goes a long way.

Take q look around the 8:20 mark I believe to see him rip out the mag.

This is how a reload works in real life.

Youtube Video – [00:20..]

Ok, so I'm going to preface this post by saying I'm not in the military, and I have never been in the military. My experience is as a police officer of almost 14 years. We carry C8 patrol rifles.

Situations are dynamic. This video shows a guy in the absolute best situation, which is a controlled and static environment. In a combat situation, which essentially is "speed reloading", you rip the mag out. You simply don't expect the mag to fall out when you press the release. (Ripping the mag out means you press the release and pull it out, throwing the magazine on the ground.)

The video showing the U.S. soldier is exactly how things should be done. At 37 seconds, watch how he ensures the bolt goes forward. He doesn't gently touch it, he slaps it. That's because in combat, your adrenaline is dumping and you lose your fine motor skills. You're trained to use gross motor skills whenever possible.

The videos that were posted in this thread shows a guy that obviously has some skills and talent - in static environments. You won't get soldiers doing things like that because it's too intricate, and if you make a mistake, that could mean your death. As for insurgents doing speed reloads - good luck. I highly doubt they have the level and quality of training that the U.S. military does.

Ok. Realism. Forces people to be tactical, and play with a focused intention, instead of running around like they're playing CoD.

Yeah, this claim has been debunked a million times already (OHK leading to tactical gameplay). It's other mechanics that need tweaking for the gameplay to become more tactical.

I haven't seen it debunked in the least. If people recognize that they could potentially die from one well placed shot, they are less likely to take careless risk, and are forced to think things through tactically. Always dying from one shot would be unrealistic. A person can take several small arms rounds and still fight back. In the same token, however, a person can be killed from one well placed shot from small arms fire. There's a balance to be made, but trying to say that there should not be one shot kills is ridiculous.

@dafez Thanks for your opinion. If you'd provide actual gameplay arguments it'd actually help the devs.

Ok. Realism.

No. Realism is not a gameplay argument.

Forces people to be tactical

Also no.... it makes people either rambo alone or camp alone, as already stated and proved in multiple threads. It's literally what low-TTK people argue with: "So i can flank 10 people and kill them". That's not teamplay nor tactical.

and play with a focused intention, instead of running around like they're playing CoD.

Yeah, 3rd no. That's how i literally play Sandstorm right now. Because of the currently already low TTK. Just run around and kill stuff. Don't even need armor.

Sorry you feel that way.
