Instead of simple attributes pertaining to a damage system, why not actually have a physical damage system that can show up.
For instance, I shoot another enemy tanks top barrel gun and it would blow off and a crater would be there.
Or for planes, you could see all the bullet holes in the wings, fuselage torn in half, etc. or you could see "fuel" leaking out from an engine shot and the plane would slowly go into a stall or something.
Heck, I doubt any of this is possible with the BF engine...
Because we don't have a SDK ?
its simply not possible, and belive me our damage system is MUCH more than simple attributes ... you'll see it ingame
The best way to do damage without having to completely re-write the damage code would either be one of two options.
1- A sorta RPG like damage, a roll of the dice. Where you have the base damage then a dice multiplyer added to it. This can simulate very critical hits or deficiencies in the ammo or amor. For insance if a tank hits another tank and gets a low dice roll, then it wouldn't do as much damage (which would reflect either a dud shot or an richochet).
2- Mulitple life bars pertaining to each armor's side. Since how does the damage on the front of the amor reflect the damage on the back? Its just not possible to believe that the armor is an accumulated life bar and a whole percentage of what it can take. Its more believe to have different faces of the armor that can take different amounts of damage seperately
I wish they could add the physics of armor penetration like how Combat Mission does but its just really not possible and would also take a long time to code (fuzzy logic pertaining to real world physics isn't exactly a pinpoint science you know).
Master Minder I have to say you are exciting me with that talk of your damage system.
Thx for the information Master Minder,sounds indeed very promising :D
BAMhmmm i think FH will go for 100% Realism...
more about 65% nowadays
meh, we'll settle at 75%. There are some aspects that are spot on, like the rifle damage system, but others in tank combat need to be fixed.

well i was searching through the forum and found a thread similar to the newer one so i wanted to see the difference from the new and old one and what has changed since then
