Description

Subjects basically says it all. Female characters (AI) are not able to hold any weapons or drive a car (missing animations?). They just do the "jesus on the cross" anim and are unable to move.

It is possible to make woman drive vehicle, f.e. motorbike. Make her get in back, get in as a driver and switch to cargo - she'll become driver floating in the air without animation loaded. Anyway it's just pity BI did not care about female drivers and sharpshooters ;)

I don´t see here a problem. Women doesn´t have experience to drive vehicles and use weapons. Its realistic. :P

Hmmm... I thought it's enabled together with "half of Americans came from Africa" mod by default, and I wondered how to disable both of them?

Let's call this a feature, since the animations were left out by design so far.

Updated by th3flyboy almost 7 years ago

this would be useful for mission making... I can think of a few mission ideas to implement this for...

Lets rather call this "a sloppy work" instead of "request of a new feature" :P
Joke on the side: I believe even other civilians have couple of animations missing and that causes CTDs when you try controlling them, running around and using weapons (rifle/rpg). But that is all another thread that we already have open.

I was incredibly upset when I found out I could not have granny-SF.

Updated by IceBreakr over 4 years ago

Well, at least in A1 I could do a mission where my team got attacked by angry old grandmas with AKs in retirement home :/

I agree, they should really update this in the newer updates, it really is an important feature that's missing.
ArmA 2 just feels incomplete without this.
