Description

Observed
  • Rangefinders are working constantly.
  • Rangefinders can work forever.
  • Rangefinders are perfect, using unfiltered CA_Distance control with idc 151.
  • Rangefinders have unlimited maximum range.
  • Fire Control Systems cannot make direct use of rangefinder data.
Expected
  • Rangefinders should update only when player presses "RF" button, or when laser designator is active.
  • Rangefinders should not allow ranging when overheated (usually it's realized with a couple of seconds between ranging is possible).
  • Rangefinders should have configurable precision, so the results are rounded up to realistic values.
  • Rangefinders should have configurable minimum and maximum range.
  • Fire Control Systems should be able to gather data from rangefinder in order to compute correct lead (task for another ticket).

History

Updated by Ulanthorn over 3 years ago

Yes you are absolutely right, and in addition I want to add that handheld laser range finders have a maximum range, usually around 1500-2000 meters for high performance models.

Updated by ThePredator over 3 years ago

The Leica Vector 21B has a max. range of 12.000m and is a compact handheld binocular rangefinder.
