This is a good idea, well c'mon everyone boasts about how great they are with sniper & knife and that they are pro's why not add this to the game as a server option?

I  FUCKIN' LOVE IT!

This would add a whole new world to soldat....I say server option/realistic mode option.


I really beleave that when you enable realistic a options menu should comeup with all of these ideas as options...


But it will never happen...:(

In real life, you can't see a fired round in mid-air.

In real-life, you wouldn't be able to dodge most shots from any weapon.
In real-life, you'd crumple after being shot.
In real-life, you wouldn't jump three stories high.
In real-life, you'd run out of ammo.
In real-life, a thrown knife wouldn't kill someone faster than a Ruger.
In real-life, you can't minisurf.
In real-life, you can't rocketjump.
In real-life, you don't respawn after dying.

Yadda yadda yadda...

It's a horrible idea, especially to apply it to just one weapon. The panic you're trying to recreate will never be a factor as long as you can respawn.

If I could see my bullets then fine, but if I can't see my own bullets, I don't support this idea.
Mainly because I aim with the bullets, and most of the weapons that have an arc do that too, thus most people will end up using precise long range weapons. Also this will mean that most of the people will end-up camping, since locating the sniper will be harder

Occasionally I will get blasted by a law and not see it, or hit by a barret bullet that's traveled so far that it is invisible.

I prefer that this happen occasionally, not always.

My vote is no.

You can already turn your bullets off in soldat config.

The point of this is everyone not to see bulets, not just one person.

If a camping sniper gets you in the game at least you can see where the bullet came from. If this was on it could have come anywhere. There wont be 'OMGOMGOMGWHEREISIT??', they'll be 'wtf sif bs'. And then people will whine and whine and whine. It might seem good in theory but in the long run people will just be sick of it.

1) All guns have a unique curve in Soldat, unlike FPSs where bullets go in a straight line. You can't a aim without seeing where the bullets actually go; bullets do not reach your crosshair. How are we suppose to learn the curve without actually seeing it?

2) Everyone will start spraying and barreting. Barret is the only gun that you can aim without seeing the bullet. When your target is on your screen, that is.

Aren't your bullets already invisible in predator mode?  I'm not sure, but I think that's the case.

Only anime shows I've felt any interest in over the years are Pokemon (original TV series) and various hentai.
so clearly jgrp is a goddamn anime connoisseur. his opinion might as well be law here.

Play anything long enough and you can figure it out.  Besides, you can see where your bullets hit -- they make a little puff of stuff when they hit a polygon.

I think this would be great for realistic mode.  A small add on...would be be that hard?  Either way, this one gets my vote.

I'm working on a tactical mod that replaces grenades with EnEsCe's flashbang (in strings, gfx, and behavior), makes every bullet move faster, increase reload, and now, bullets will be invisible (some at least).

seems good, but the automatic weaponry will have to have tracer rounds however, so people arnt reduced as much to spraying.  There could be a tracer say every 3-4 rounds, and with the barret, and ruger, all the bullets would be tracers.  How does that sound?

I agree with EnEsCe. Its easy to dodge them!

You're saying that if someone were to shoot at you with the barret..and you somehow manage to see the bullet coming..you'd have time to react and dodge?

I find that very hard to believe.
