A mod for enhanced realism ingame. As of now, it's only affecting coop security hardcore mode with very limited "features". This is meant for mature players who don't like unrealistic restrictions (balance) or arcadic elements and strive for a more immersive and realistic gameplay, even if it's harder and more unforgiving. Small special forces have few restrictions regarding their weapons, role etc. - so in this mod a lot of options can be chosen freely.

Feedback is welcome, constructive feedback even more, but consider this mod is primarily made for our small community and can be used in different ways (if your immersion is fueled by 8 machinegunners with rocketlaunchers, who am I to disagree ;) We're always interested in realistic experiences and feedback (you shot weapon X already and feel it should be more like Y, your feedback is welcome).

Be aware that most features are not possible to realize atm - For what is planned, see "wishlist", but I'm no scripter. There's barely some documentation about the SDK and a lot of features like weaponmodding will come (if I heard correctly) at a later time.
We'll see as NWI offers more possibilities in the future.

This mod is heavily WIP and will probably update a lot in the beginning.
Remeber to clean your modfolder before you run out of space ;)

FEATURES


realism mod icon fastmovement
OPERATORS

  • Classnames have changed to fit a more realistic environment
  • Operators, like in small SF units, are not restricted in weapons (full arsenal)
  • The team has more freedom to act in whatever roles they need (only Officer and Specialists)
  • Sprinting-speed has increased (operators can run a little bit faster, even with lots of equip)
  • Operators are highly trained, so they can jump and shoot, jump and aim etc.
  • Every specialist can equip a radio - simulates the ability to pick it up from a dead RTO
  • Walking-speed has decreased a little bit (cautious and methodically, slow is fast)
  • If operators die, they will be replaced by fresh operators, not by FNGs (full equip, no stripping)


realism mod icon firesupport
FIRE-SUPPORT

  • Your team has full fire-support, but it takes time to bring in the big-birds
  • 4 x Minigun, 4 x A-10, 2 x Gunship (cooloffs can't be changed as of now, will be changed to 360 - 480 sec. cooloffs to simulate 9-liner and IP/OP stationing)
  • Grunts at arty will support you with smoke whenever/whereever you want it (12 x, 30 sec. cooloff)
  • OC has restricted HE artillery to 2x in fear of too much collateral, cooloff is long (480 s, see above)


realism mod icon fullarsenal
ARSENAL

  • Dropped equipment stays longer on the ground (6 min.)
  • Operators can equip out of the full arsenal
  • Every slot with exception of the commander can use the radio (simulates taking over the radio if RTO is dead)


MISSION

  • Take your time, it's hard enough (18 min. for each objective)
  • You need 60 sec. to capture, enemies need 60 again to recapture, last objective has to be defended 180 sec.
  • The team can speed up capping up to 150 % (6 teammembers capping)


ENEMY

  • Your enemies are full aware you're there (100 % difficulty), so be careful
  • Enemies have been buffed and nerfed where needed to act hard but fair (as far as possible)
  • Sniper and Breacher are WIP, they have serious problems acting fair, Feedback needed
  • Enemies will reinforce once, be careful all the time


CHAT/VOIP

  • If you're dead, you're silent - seems rational (no dead2living chat)
  • More important: Survivors can focus on their survival
  • But beware, enemies can hear if you talk in the vicinity


MECHANICS

  • Like in reallife, you won't see who shot you, no kill feeds, no death cam
  • Only for spectators, be mature about that, if you cheat, that's on you
  • Same goes for spectating in 3d person - use it for training, not cheating
  • Real teamplay here, friendly fire is on 100 %, not reflected
  • If you shoot your teammate, you'll hit him/her full force
  • No individual scores at the end (it's about the team)


CONFIG (SERVER, NOT IMPLEMENTED, SEE BELOW FOR CONFIGS)

  • no killfeeds
  • full friendly fire (100 % damage, no reflection)
  • AI difficulty 100 %
  • 8 player team
  • min. 3 enemies per player, max. 18 enemies per team of 8 (with a second attack wave/reinforce)
  • bots are more aggressive and flank more aggressively
  • fully supply (50)
  • no dead voice enabled, survivors can focus on surviving
  • enemies can hear VoIP
  • dropped equip/weapons last 6 min.
  • round has 18 min.
  • capture time 60 sec.
  • recapture time 60 sec.
  • speedup capture up to 6 players with 150 % total
  • defend time 90 sec.
  • defend time final objective 180 sec.
  • you don't lose your equip if you die
  • no individual scores at the end (it's about the team, not about you)
  • less delay before the round starts (< 5 sec.) - can lead to lost rounds at the start (feedback welcome)




WISHLIST (NEAR FUTURE)

  • No HUD except compass (maybe as a small gadget without target indicators), in reality, there's no friendly indicators ...
  • No idle weapon animation (why should we look at our weapon, when we cover a sector?!)
  • Autojump obstacles < 0.5 m, Fastvault (no way it takes 3 sec. to vault over this stuff)
  • Reduction of callouts per settings: No callouts, critical callouts only, full callouts
  • No area restrictions for defending in checkpoint (you can defend from whereever you want to, timer for capturing team, if they hold for x sec., they win)
  • More ammo by default: 8 Magazines, 4 pistol, 4 slots for grenades, 2 for explosives/launchers
  • Sound while sneaking (it should make some noises, small jingling, quiet scratching of equipment, grating of clothes etc.
  • More slots for rifleammo, sidearm ammo, UGL, grenades
  • Usage of the small backpack only for everybody except commander and observer with the same slots as big ruck
  • Launchers are not dropped after the last rocket but stay on the back for further usage
  • tbc.



WISHLIST (FUTURE)

  • Generally: Weapon nerfs/buffs to realistic behaviour (not yet possible): more punch, less recoil, more sway
  • Complete deletion of all balancing and arcadic features in the game (e.g. balanced weapons, unrealistic stats, restricted zones, etc.)
  • Replacing arcadic mechanics with realistic ones: Jump over obstacles < 0.5 m, fastvault, shoot whenever you want, realistic ADS etc.
  • Faster sprints (the longer you sprint with Shift, the faster you get), but faster exhaustion at the same time, more sway
  • Realistic units like 1stRecon, Raiders, KSK, etc. (not yet possible)
  • Unitbased camo, weaponskins etc. from reallife SF-units like 1stRecon, Seals, KSK etc.
  • Other gamemodes like "Insurgency", where you have to clear a whole town
  • Mission based gamemodes like "Kill HVT", "Sabotage", "Escort" etc.
  • Generation Kill scenario with 1st Recon unit and 3-4 small mission designed maps (e.g. capture the town, defend the trafficstop, find lost marine etc.)
  • Enhanced health features like exhaustion, unconsciousness, bleeding, shock
  • Shock-impact-system, where player and bots are not capable to shoot back / move when being hit, or even being knocked over
  • Impair-system: if you get hit in the arm/foot, you can't use your weapon any more / can't move fast anymore, up until unconciousness
  • Weapon-Slings: if you don't equip one and get shot in the arm, you'll lose your weapon (and can pick it up again)
  • Anti-Personnel-Mines, Teargas, Alarm-Triggers, BluTracking, HelmetCams etc.
  • Combat-Medic-Class, bandages (in combination with bleeding-/unconcious-system)
  • Real breaching - in combination with destructible environment assets
  • Interaction with certain elements in the game, e.g. wooden planks, some furniture, etc. to barricade routes
  • Tactical commwheel with critical shoutouts like "I'm flanking (direction you're looking at)", "You flank (dir)", "I cover you", "Cover me" etc.
  • MiniDrone (Raven) to recon areas for a short amount of time
  • tbc.

The best mod to play! Our CZ-SK community can't wait for other elements of this mode :) We fully support and have the mod on our server. Thank you for the hard work!

tacplay
tacplay @tacplay

Hey M4ChR, nice to hear, glad you guys like it!

Valdyr
Valdyr @valdyr

Appears to be working on my server, however I am looking to override a couple of settings to meet our own preferences. Do you happen to know how to do so? Namely the round/capture timers and the AI scaling.

tacplay
tacplay @tacplay

It should work with game.ini overrides, but I have to test it. Maybe your files are not priority.

tacplay
tacplay @tacplay

Ok, seems the mod has priority. Will patch this out for the future so you can set your own configs.

Valdyr
Valdyr @valdyr

Will try the update tonight. Thanks for the quick changes!

tacplay
tacplay @tacplay

Updated to 1.7
As for now I have reset the AI, because it doesn't work in the nightmaps until we find out how to tweak it correctly.

AlphaDogs
AlphaDogs @dogmanbytes

Would like to give this a go, on my servers how to install as a mutator?

tacplay
tacplay @tacplay

You just have to install it and run it as "Realism" in the startfile (updated the description, see above).

OD
od-servers @od-servers

nice one

machine.gun.panda @machinegunpanda1

Happy to see such progress in so little time!
I'll be looking out for this mod and what it does. A completely new experience in the same game. Good job!

Rover_Oceania_Admin
Rover_Oceania_Admin @rover-oceania-admin

Be nice if you told us exactly what it does.

tacplay
tacplay @tacplay

Just trying things out in the editor atm - will list an idea here soon. See if some folks with scripting abilities will join to realize the idea, because I'm trash in coding ;)

It's a WIP and probably it's just public to be server tested, it's not meant for you to use
