232 fix

19 posts in this topic

This seems like a really easy fix and would help the 232 a bit.

Remove the radio antenna. It serves no purpose ingame, and makes the 232 even more easily spotted.  

Plus it hampers the commander's view quite a bit, since we can't move his head around it lol.

I agree, it serves no purpose at all. There is no reason to have a command scout car when it  has no enhanced optics and radio is a moot thing.

could perhaps be possible to remove it from the commanders view?

True, but i think it would be neat to find a way to give those units scouting value far above the value in using them to shoot at anything.
Ability to accurately mark targets from the binoc view or something, maybe some other stuff, better binocs?
Probably take some work, but i think it would be fun?
Not sure what comms advantage you might be able to give it?
Maybe when an enemy unit is ID'd and marked in binocs a message goes out on target, enemy [Unit Type] Spotted, with a map mark that blinks for a period?
Be cool if maybe you got a kill assist for units that you have tagged?

maybe not many would play it, i probably would though, i'm weird like that

That would be cool to be able to accurately mark encounter type and since it was confirmed by a command vehicle it could show up as a confirmed target on the map and the map marker would be a little more weighty.

Sounds better than removing the antenna, just improve vision and reporting for scout cars on both sides would give the purpose they where for.

remove the antenna and it wont be historicly accurate an you would hear about it every hour on game chat, so possibly in the future just use a different scout car type they had several.

S!

Removing the antenna just makes it a 231, still very historically accurate.

I'd say just make the antenna bars transparent for the cmdr when he is looking.

But, could also still remove the antenna and make the 231, so we have both the 231 and 232 in game.

Probably, though i'd probably like the 233 with 75mm in T2 better (minus the US guys)

I'd love to see the 233, we have all the components in game now to make it.

Only issue is, it is more of a tier 3 weapon, and at best put in for tier 2.

Well, wait a minute;    grease gun....   we could easily put the 233 in tier 0 now that I think about it.

 

PS should make a 263 so gagamel has a command vehicle to drive!  Only he can spawn it :)

I got a better idea. Leave the antenna there and add an additional extended radio antenna to the sherman model as well!

And while you are at it you could add a nice little sponge bob flag to the top of the antenna.

OK that's about enough.
A decent fella has to draw the line someplace!
Next thing you know, someone will want Squidward, or Mr Crabs, and infantry will want squeaky boots.
