Johnson Posted August 6, 2020 Share Posted August 6, 2020 PLEASE READ BEFORE VOTING! (poll closes 13:00UTC 20/08/20) It come to staff's attention that the age old discussion regarding the choice of radio mod used on AWE has recently resurfaced. Staff have decided to let the players choose the outcome of this debate through a poll. This post has also been compiled to provide an unbiased comparison of the two options (TFAR or ACRE) for any members who are unclear of their choices. It should be noted that if the server switches to ACRE, staff measures will be made to ease the player transition from TFAR (i.e guides, advice, troubleshooting, etc. etc.). While the comparisons between the two mods may go much more in depth, we believe these to be the main points of interest: TFAR Pros - Already known well by everyone on the server - Simple and easy to use in the sense of practicality - Less hardcore in the sense of functionality (very clear radio transmissions, more powerful radio ranges, alternative channels, less terrain/weather interference) Cons - Creates multiple mod-related issues for several players - Could be considered to be boring or unengaging due to its simplicity - Radios could be considered to be too powerful and provoke less engagement with Team Leaders, Squad Leaders, Radio Operators etc. etc. - Plugin installer could be difficult for new players to locate ACRE Pros - Known well by several (but not all) AWE and MSO players - Even more simple than TFAR in the sense of practicality (eg. no frequencies just channels) - The same features as TFAR + more (vehicle infantry radios, shared radios, antenna directions, weather effects, configurable settings for the server) - Has an auto-installer making it much easier for new players to join - More Active Delevopment (ACRE has been updated 2 months ago, TFAR has been updated 2 years ago) Cons - Would require players to learn the new mod + key rebinding to replicate TFAR keys - Could be considered too hardcore (more realistic radios and effects meaning more interference and more for the user to deal with) - Can still produce mod problems like TFAR (although much less often so far on the MSO) Karate Pyjamas and Minipily 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
