View Full Version : Suggestion: Cars and trucks should speed up when you attack them!

The cars and trucks and convoys in the game shoud be able to speed up if they come under attack, say they're moving around 30kph normally, shouldn't they be able to move up to 50 and 60, possibly 80? I just thought it would be common sense to speed up if you're under attack. The AI doesn't do this, or it seems not to.

In most cases,light skinnied vehicals would pull over to the side of the road and dismount.
No matter what speed you boost your vehical up to,your not going to out run a plane.

LOL, I know what you really want - solitary vehicles with an AI (other than follow the waypoint/go around objects).

It would indeed be very cool if you saw a vehicle going down the road and, when approaching it, saw it do one of two things -

1) Stop with the little men running out,

or

2) Drive like mad, weaving back and forth, possibly running into stuff (like a house or group of "town trees") and blowing up.

Hmmm, say a one in twenty chance the driver would be an idiot and drive like the hammers of hell rather than do the senseable thing of stopping and getting the heck away from the vehicle!

Chasing a BMW motorcycle would be too cool!

But we don't have the computers for that yet....

Maybe just stopping and getting out is better, they could be skinned with pilot skins, and run away and dive on the ground like most pilots do when they bail. I think it would be great for immersion. I also think we should have figures moving around an airbase to make it more lifelike.

Uh, they do do that. Come in low on a strafing run on a convoy and trucks will stop and the little dudes will run away.

Usually it's the BMW motorcycles chasing me, oh wait a minute, that's real life and I'm on my motorcycle. They of course have pretty blue lights and make lots of noise (-;

while in a convoy it is normal practice while under air attack to pull off the road in what is called a "herring bone" and dissmount and shoot back which means that one vehical goes right the next goes left. on and on ( each vehical knows it position in the convoy so its reaction is quick).....this is comman practice for us army now ......now i dont know what really happend then... but judging from a large amount of ww2pics iv seen they did this as well

Sounds like a good idea. I've read reports of Typhoon pilots who would split their attack between the front and rear of the convoy to try and block the road. Stopping and shooting back sounds like the best method to deal with that kind of threat.
