Description

Without any addons active, you can walk up to an empty m252, m2 minitripod, etc, and select the action disassemble. There are then two pieces on the ground which you can pick up, and reassemble elsewhere.

When you have ACE and ACEX loaded, this action is not available. (I've never loaded ace without acex.)

One thing of consideration is how the two pieces can be carried by a single person given the "extra weapon" functionality of ACE.

You can disassemble the M2, DShKM, Kord, Mk19 and AGS30 with the ACE interaction/CSW system.
You can carry both gun and tripod, true, but it'd be exceessivly heavy and you.

Should we add support for m252 as well perhaps?

Was carrying and assembly part of the mortar system vigilante was working on?
I'm not sure our CSW system can be made to work with mortars in an easy way, but maybe we can put back the OA assemble/disassemble for the stuff that doesn't use the CSW system.

one of the main problem of BIS CSW is that when assembled/disasembled , the weapon regain full ammo.

I was thinking in terms of getting into a light vehicle, like the ATV or Motorcycle, but in most cases I guess you'd just be stowing it into the vehicle's cargo section anyway.

ps. It just looks better when you finish your.

with the ACE interaction/CSW system.

Never occurred to me to check that when I initially posted. Created #14021

I just tested interacting with them, and among the ones I plopped down, the tow and m252 did not have such disassemble options. (Though I can't remember that the TOW had the option in vanilla. Have to check that.)

With ace running, does placing a CSW in the editor put a different object than if you load a mission made with vanilla? If so, the matter has probably been further confused on my end.

The particular case that prompted this, is that in domination one of the tactics we tended to use was to pick up the mortars left behind at the targets, and employ them against other targets. Attacking that well fortified positions without IF support is just silly. The disassemble action not appearing with ace was the start of what became this bugreport.

 

So yeah... the m252 and the opfor equivalent being mobile though disassembly is the most important thing I wanted with this request.

Yea but what happend if the only option i have in the CSW menu is GET IN. I don't understand. Before i had all option: rearm, assemble/disasemble, etc.. Now nothing ;(

ATM no support for mortars. Those CSW weaopons that cannot be dismantled (mortars...) can only be "entered" via the interaction menu.

We hope to supply some additions soon.
Please also check this ticket #6679.
