I like iron sights in FPS games because it helps make it a tactical game and not just a Quake game. I dont think Far Cry has iron sights. Wish it did tho. What do u guys think?

Yeah, Iron Sights would be a good idea. I think if you guys want to stay on the leading edge you should include this. Several games are using them now and many in development have them as well.

If you're still "iffy" about doing it then you can do like Vietcong did and make it option to turn on/off crosshairs. Although please don't have the iron site aimming like Vietcong where they don't line the weapon up correctly. You get a much better immersion feeling when you have a proper site picture.

Every game that has iron sights in it sucks.
If you want Far Cry to suck then put iron sights in it.

You probably suck at using Iron Sights thats why u dont like them. In the real world we dont use a crosshair buddy.

I think most players like Iron Sights, its cool. Adds to realism.

If you read the press released that have been made, the developers do not want to make a traditional game. Crosshairs are most definitely part of a traditional/typical FPS game.

I'm on the forum for a game that wont be released for over six months and I care about the real world?

Id say drop the whole iron sights thing for a couple of reasons.

Its been brought up in the raven sheild forum and turned into a big mess, and second, he asked "what do you guys think?" and someone told him what he thought.

In return, the same guy that asked, "what do you guys think?" Turns around and says you probably suck... uh..

So apparently he doesnt care what you think unless you agree with him, or he will flame you. So its kinda pointless to even talk about the subject without it turning into a bunch of flames.

He posts that every game with iron sights in it sucks, hes obviously an idiot and if he was any good at using Iron Sights he would like them. I would say the majority of gamers like the Iron Sights feature. It makes the game a tactical FPS like OFP or BHD. It adds more strategy to the game. It will be a good game without iron sights but it will be a great game on the scale of OFP with iron sights. Its the details that make the game stand out from others. Ragdoll physics, long view distance, iron sights, prone, gore, swimming, climbing, many weapons moded accuratly, and vehicals. These things make for a great game that has good replayability.

I personaly dont see the problem with iron sights. Its not as if it can be used as an exploit its just that some people like that view.

I know that whenever I use iron sights in a game it slows you down and makes your pace more realistic, which i like in a game. I find it hard to think of anything better than sneeking through long grass looking through my sites, scanning the bushes for movement.....

Sounds like a nice element to add to an already excelent game.

Its also good for precision shots medium or long range. You can quickly put a burst into an enemy exposing your position as minimal as possible.

I agree ironsights are fun.... But in we dont need it to be more real...In fact ive shot a ar15(civilian m16) it had 10 shots i shot em all and after that my shoulder was bruised...Games are games having more realism is fun but if a m16 kicked like a m16 i wouldnt play.

You need to beef up a bit then. L85A1 and .22 bolt action rifle. Quite fun. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Got my marksman on that.

07-14-2003, 10:31 PM
Heh an M16 kicks the least out of any military rifle there ever was. It barely kicks at all. You should try a .306

I have a sensitive shoulder! .30-06 also hurts...whats the L85 like? Im familiar with all the bullpup design on it but i have no idea as to kick. Heard the mags always fall out too.

XyZspineZyX
07-16-2003, 02:39 AM
If its chambered in 5.56 it wont kick much but since the bolt is back in the butt stock it might kick alittle more than a regular rifle.

Dunno if its a bit late.. but since the topic is "Iron Sights", I thought I could add my comment...!

I like the idea of iron sights. It adds reality... and no, you dont have a mouse in real life, but its a game whos there to reflect the relity! And adding iron sights is a good way to do just that! Just returned from a year in the army muself, and fireing with real sights whould be kinda trilling!

Iron Sights [Thumbs up]! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Perhaps JMamais can help me out with this question.

Does Far Cry use the same technique/idea as Operation Flashpoint or BlackHawk Down in a sense that you can press the right mouse button and Jack will bring the weapon up to a firing position and at the same time on the screen appears the Optical sight or Iron sight for the current weapon?

Or is it just a zoom in button like Operation Flashpoint (You use "K" for the sight in OF).

iron sites rock man they are the best its not that i need them cause i already know where the middle of my screen is and if you dont like to iam whit Iron site just zoom ones and put a sticker on you monitor than you know where the midlle of your screen is CASE CLOSED.

I mean news can be posted on the community website, but this forum would be useless until the game is released.

XyZspineZyX
10-23-2003, 08:45 PM
Do you actually see any use in all this? Are we getting any further with all this talking? Do you think we can in fact influence the developement of Far Cry? Are we getting happier with this forum? Does it give us some good feelings? Will it have influence on the future of Far Cry? Does it help the developers? Are we going to enjoy this game and remember it untill we are old and dying? I think it does.

They did have some sort of zoom function which eases the aiming. The camera zooms in on the weapon that comes closer to the center and the crosshair becomes smaller so you can aim correcter. That was at E3.

Ghost Recon/Rainbow Six style then? I for one would welcome Iron Sights. Add both to the "realism" and to the diffculty(beating hard w/ only Iron Sights /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif ) They should make it like the ones in Vietcong and not the "siluett" style they got in OPF.

XyZspineZyX
10-26-2003, 03:02 PM
I don't think there will be shooters that will use the OFP type of Iron Sights, You need an animation that's realistic and that's not possible that way. It will be like my post above in Far Cry, most likely.

Yeah but the whole "super magic binocular eye" thingy they got in games is really annoying from time to time(atleast for me who prefers realism). I'd vote for iron sights w/o any zoom.

XyZspineZyX

I would class it as, almost cheating.

But it is still handy, I mean in real life you would be able to see better because naturally focuses, but your screen's image is set.
