More static objects: barriers, bunkers and industry


Recommended Posts

With the apparent death of Ranger79’s statics mod, I’ve found myself wanting when it comes to statics in the mission editor.

Some placeable static HESCO-style barriers, gates and SAM entrenchments for creating custom FARP/FOBs and SAMs would be a huge boon for missions involving field bases, especially with the Hind on the horizon. Right now the best we can do to set up a barrier around a base is to use shipping containers, with LOMAC quality to boot.

These don’t have to be super-ultra-8K quality; in fact it would be better if they weren’t so that more could be placed down.

 

Additionally, higher-quality factory and other industrial buildings would be awesome. The current two options we have look like they’re straight out of the 90s, and provide very little variety. Making the existing non-placeable industry bits that we see on the maps would be a big step on its own.

Absolutely 100% +9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999

 

Barriers and fences, heliports, AM2 matting (or equivalent), range targets, different tents, proper bunkers and pillboxes, antennae, lights etc. I could go on for absolutely ages.

 

Making the WWII assets (especially things like the Czech hedgehogs and razor/barbed wire barrier) available to owners for more countries would be an improvement.

 

Even the current static objects are very old and are probably due an upgrade.

In generell we need more static objects to build FARP's, enemy positions, NTTR Trainings Ranges etc. they dont need to have a high polycount. 
I would love to see more buildings, containers in different shapes like the NTTR Range Target Mod, helipads (in different styles like sand, winter, gras etc), bunkers, barriers. 
Everything you need to build a FARPs, Enemy compounds, SAM sites, etc or to replicate the NTTR Trainingsranges.

At this point I think modders and third party devs are going to be the answer for this. I would pay extra for maps if they included area specific static objects and AI vehicles/planes/ships. The Strait of Hormuz map was a bit of a let down once I realized there were almost no Iranian assets especially ships, at least we have the SA-2 now and hopefully the SA-5 either this year or next.

+1, came here for this, can't believe HESCO's aren't a thing in the ME, I'm stuck between using F-shape barriers and shipping containers for building walls around my FARP...
