Campfire damage is too much

4 posts in this topic

Howdy,

I think that the idea of being burned by a fire is a little bit too much for a video game, but I truly feel that the Camp Fire in Exile is way too dangerous. This is coming from both a real world and a player pov. As someone who has spent a total of 3 years walking long distances, living out of a backpack, the fact that I broke my legs and died due to my own campfire today is totally unbelievable. Fire itself can eventually cause heat to damage an item or person, sure. The hottest fires are the ones that have been burning for some time, the ones with enough embers built up to concentrate that heat radiation, not a small cooking fire, not right away. Even from a "Realism" standpoint, the radius of the heat from this campfire is way too large, and it punishes the player for something they can't always control with perfection. IRL, I wouldn't somehow forget not to run top speed toward something like a fire I had just made, I would carefully approach it and work with it. Fire seems to be really dangerous in Arma 3 in general, I can say the exact same thing for vehicle wrecks. I think we have all at least experienced the huge area of effect fire damage has around wrecks... but... as I have not been around a crashed helicopter or destroyed tank in my life, I feel inclined to let it slide - as ridiculous as it may seem at times... 

Flat out, the Campfire damage should be taken out of Exile. It makes a very tedious task even more tedious, and also punishes the player for something that they would be able to control MUCH more if they were themselves actually moving around a real campfire.

I realize that this is the internet, and likely someone or a few people will get on this thread and try to argue my position for the sake of arguing it - probably without any regard for the player experience - ONLY for the Valor they sense in belittling and nitpicking any observation made by a stranger. It may also be ignored completely, in either case I am wasting my time.

I enjoy playing Arma 3 and I like Exile for what I see as a large improvement to the whole "survival mod" scene in Arma 3, Thanks for the hard work, and please consider the change I have suggested. Thanks.

Good point. Other than bullets, the most dangerous things in Arma are stairs in my experience. Nothing like glitching off the side of stairs about eighteen inches high, breaking both your legs, and bleeding out. ¬¬
