Beta Feedback - Player's Manual Chapter 5 Gear

Tue 20 Apr 2021, 15:09

Please use this thread to report any typos or errors in Chapter 5 - Gear in the Player's Manual of the Beta PDF. Rules to remember:
  • Before reporting an error, please check and see if it already has been reported, and if so, don't report it again.
  • If you want to discuss or feedback something that is not a clear error, don't do it here - instead, please start a new forum post the specific issue.
  • If you feedbacked on something in the Alpha PDF and it's not changed in the Beta, it's there by choice - we have carefully studied all of the Alpha feedback, so please do NOT feedback on the exact same thing again, unless it's a clear typo or error.
  • Please report your feedback no later than May 1. After this date, we are unlikely to be able to make any further changes.

Page 135: Crafting Ammo - The last sentence states on 2 Fails, the crafter causes an Explosion, but it does not state what size/category the explosion is.
(I'd suggest D for Small Arms Ammo and C for Artillery/Mortar/Tank Shells)
I do this in real life for fun on the weekends. #SurviveOmega #DoMoreWithLess

Chapter 5, page 113 Artillery
Vehicle Cannons

The first weapon listed is 23mm.
Where is the 20mm?
The 20mm is in such wide use, on vehicles, planes, and ships, why is it not listed?
Please add the 20mm to the list.

Chapter 5

Pages 92, 93 Melee Weapons

Reliability rating for Bottle is different between the "card" profile (Rel 1) and the chart at the end of the section (Rel 3).

Skimming the beta today and noticed on page 118 that the fuel type for both Humvee models and both Abrams MBT models is listed as G (gas). The Abrams ran a multifuel engine that could run diesel, gas or JP4 (jet fuel), but its primary fuel during the time frame for the game should be diesel. The Humvee runs on diesel.

Pg 97 M4. Either define carbines as SMGs, use the European definition of SMGs, are allow officers to take rifles in addition to SMGs. Otherwise, Americans, for example, can only have a pistol. Or change carbines to assault rifles and again allow officers to select them, too. Particularly for platoon leaders, carrying a pistol in lieu of a rifle is uncommon in the west.

Pg 116, the 998 is the unarmored ragtop HMMWV. The 1025 and 1026 are the steel roof/fiberglas door basic armor without and with winch and 966 and 1036 are the TOW carriers. They don't need this much specificity, but the important point is the 998 does not have hard body panels or a pintle mount. So there's a third line that needs to go on the chart.

(Or not, the jeep and UAZ have 1 armor, too.)

It seems to be replaced by the M/45 under Swedish weapons, however I agree that it would still be nice to have it under "other military weapons". Or stick it back under "Swedish military weapons", there's ample space there to add another line. A few pages at the end of the manual with all the weapons/vehicles and maybe general gear/loot condensed into large lists would be nice as well, a lot of the stuff is kind of spread out at the moment.
