Maybe it's better to use that symbol from Breakthrough Equipment of the new Ostheer commander. Here's an idea of what I mean:
Very low quality paint edit of Reserve Armor icon with the symbol from Breakthrough Equipment.
This symbol was used for explosions and demolish stuff, i don't think it fits well here, because demolish part represented by dozer. Also, in that variant, it looks like M4A3(105) "Sherman". Can be confusing.
I have some ideas, will try out them and publish here, if result will be good.
Only icon I don't really like is the Urban Assault Kit from the new USF commander. It has a lot of empty space and doesn't give much of an indication that it gives WP rounds. Not sure what would be a good approach.
Actually, this "thing" on top left corner supposed to be WP shells. It was taken from unused icon from gamefiles. We have an issue with this icon, because it was difficult to find a good example how to combine dozer and shells together.
I will try to find better solution with more recognisable WP shells. Thank you for your feedback!
Brit infantry still stops in front of their HQ like all other factions and need to be moved into the protection of the base manually by the player. If their retreat stopped at the outskirts of this base, like with all other bases in the game currently, then it'd be fine.
As well as USF infantry. Even more, you can breach inside with vehicles, unlike current USF base.
Same thing as I said above. What I mean is that with this base layout, if units retreat to the truck in the middle, they are protected by structures automatically without player input. No other base in the game has this.
Agreed about UKF, but OST factions still offer easy option for protection with buildings. And your infantry always retreat to HQ, not to nearest building. The only exception in my mind were assault guards (they were retreating to T4 instead of HQ, and it was bug).
And, i believe it can be adjusted by SneakEye if needed
That would make it pretty unfair compared to other bases because retreating infantry would be much more protected against dives by all the tents and weapon racks around it.
1. British infantry protected by racks and buildings after retreat. Does it make it unfair to other factions?
2. Ost factions can protect their infantry with constructions. Does it make it unfair to other factions?
P.S. USF infantry at the moment protected by all USF base and even can stuck with some manipulations inside of it. Does it make it unfair to other factions?
I challenge the assertion that Soviet arms are “piece of shites” or that they are in weird calibers.
With some exceptions that have since been removed, Soviet block arms are just as standardized in caliber as western ones with you getting a singular pistol caliber (9mm Makatov vs 9x19 NATO), intermediate rifle (5.56 nato vs 5.45 Soviet or 7.62x39) full sized rifle/GPMG round (7.62x51 NATO vs 7.62x54R Soviet) heavy machinegun (.50 BMG/12.7x99 NATO vs 12.7x108 Soviet)
So with the exception of having both 5.45x39 and 7.62x39 for intermediate calibers, the Soviet system is no more complicated than the NATO system. Plus most places use only 5.45 or 7.62x39, not both, with the exception of bigger countries like Russia itself which can handle the supply issue.
Agreed, but would like to mention (as a guy, who served in the Russian Army), that russian regular regiments mainly equipped with AK-74/AKS-74/AK-74M and AKS-74U with 5.45, because they were produced in marvelous numbers. AKM/AKMS/AK-103 with 7.62x39 are only for SpecOps and sometimes for some elite regiments (airborne for sure and possible marines).
IIRC it was an issue with number of produced AK-74M, because Russian Army has millions of them in storage and that was a reason to be against new mainline AR for Russian Army, but it was 10 years ago or so.
What I'm shooting at here is that anything good that came out of the Soviet Union was basically copied, that's all. If you do a little bit of research on everything again, good that the Soviets "made" you'll reach the same conclusion.
Examples: PPSh 41 was actually copied from the Finnish Suomi KP/-31...
Soviets took round magazine from finnish SMG, but everything else was original. PPSh was created as replacement for PPD, and both created separated from Suomi. Common outview of magazine not equal to "was actually copied from the Finnish Suomi".
...their IS-1s and IS-2s didn't even come before they captured and examined Tigers, their arguably "famous" Lada car is actually heavily inspired and copied from Fiat, Italians. I could probably go on but it would take me a full day/night cycle to list them all.
Let's go then with "their Tiger and Panthers didn't even come before they captured and examined KV-1 and T-34".
Also it's fairly obvious what the Germans copied to make their G43 even if they're not the same weapon system.
P.S. Next time please spend some time and give some proves pls.
P.S.S. It is ironically, that your manner of proving your position (west is good and east stolen EVERYTHING) quite often refers me the communist propaganda from the past. Just replace "West" and "East" words in the previous sentence.
