kaboom1212 posted a topic in SuggestionsHey Battlestate Games & community, I would like to propose the idea to make laser based sights, such as the Eotech holographic, EKP-08 and any other sights that cast a light onto glass; standard red-dot sights, behave more like their realistic counterparts. Below I have linked multiple images for you to take a look at. As well as three proposals. Please take the time to look at them and consider implementing them. Proposal 1: ADS and looking through a sight and how the mind "casts" the red-dot *Mind my gross feet in the picture and the absolute mess of my room. Take a look at the images I uploaded of my current in-game ak-74m. Then take a look at the images I have uploaded of my VFC VR-16 Airsoft rifle. As you can see everything seems to add up alright. Both are working guns and from the perspective of the viewer, both red-dot sights work perfectly fine. For reference sake, the red-dot I am using is the Holosun HS406a Tube Red-Dot sight. Now as many of you may know already, red-dot sights in most games are very inaccurate to their real life counterparts because of the limited perspective of cameras and 2D environments. Escape from Tarkov is already one of the most realistic games I have played (in-terms of gun physics) however the developers haven't seemed to have done anything about the way red-dot sights perform in real life. In reality the biggest benefit of a red-dot is that you can keep both eyes open to cast the dot into the middle of your vision while focusing on a target thus eliminating the need for a rear sight in the case of an iron sight. This can allow for faster aiming and wider fields of view. The best way I would describe it, is like giving yourself a hip-fire reticle, like in more arcade style games such as call of duty, or battlefield. Now in games, you cannot easily show this because of the limited perspective of a camera. It would be especially difficult to try to cast a dot into your character's vision very well and have it be usable, but there are ways of attempting to make sights more realistic. Take a look at the images provided below. I have tried to illustrate (through crappy photo shopping) what it looks like while looking through a sight in real life. Basically my brain automatically stops focusing on the frame of the lens and sort of blurs it out. Meanwhile my other eye can still see perfectly around the sight, therefore I can see the ground perfectly, while aiming down my sights in real life. In my opinion Escape from Tarkov should attempt to replicate this and add not only to the uses of red-dots, but also to the realism of them. One method would be to blur out the frame of the lens as well as make it more opaque. Look at the first eotech, which is basically how most games would show it. The second image is an attempt to emulate how those sights look to me. If you were to blur the top of the sights out, and make them more opaque, you could open up the shooter's field of view, and more effectively portray what it feels like to use a red-dot sight. This is a somewhat easy way of making the sights more realistic. By opening up the shooter's view, via blur and opacity, it can better simulate how the sight would function in reality. Proposal 2: Glass quality, breakage and dust. One of the most important parts of a sight is it's quality of glass. Glass quality can be changed through numerous things but I'll focus on some of the main ones. First: Better sight? Higher Quality Glass. Here is an example. My sight The Holosun, has good quality glass but it is slight tinted. This is helpful for shading and certain scenes, but sometimes having perfectly clear glass can be more helpful (though that is a subjective opinion). In comparison, when I was buying my sight I had the option of buying the Aimpoint Patrol. The aimpoint was about $400 CAD more expensive but it had a higher clarity of glass and was less tinted inside (at least to me). One method of showing glass quality in game would be to add slight tinting to some of the sights with lower quality glass. Thus making people WANT the better sights. They will offer not just an aesthetic change but a functional one as well. Breakage and dust. As you can see in my pictures my holosun has flip-up sight protectors on it. These are used when transporting the lens to prevent it from getting scratched. Now in-game you most likely wouldn't want to have any sight protectors but this does bring up the fair point of getting your lens scratched and beat up as the raid goes on. I would like to propose that as time goes on if you aim down your sights i.e. "Expose" your sight and walk through bushes and trees there is that chance that your lens could get scratched, which will somewhat impede your vision. I would also like to propose the idea that dust can get into your lens which you will then have to wipe off if you go prone in dust areas, as well as the longer you spend in a raid. These may seem like minor issues, but taking care of your lenses is actually incredibly important in real life when shooting and should also be important in a realism based game such as Escape from Tarkov. These effects should be reset after a raid, but would facilitate the need for a cloth of some kind for cleaning. This effect would also be applicable to Ballistic goggles and other vision based equipment. You could also wipe off lenses with your hands but it will be less effective. Proposal 3: More options, micro-dots, mid-tiers Adding in more real-life mid-tier sights to give people more options. For example, I know more people that own a Holosun than those that own an Aimpoint, simply because Holosuns are cheaper sights. Yet I don't see very many in-game because they haven't been added in yet. It would be nice to see some more of these sights offered by the traders. For example, you could get a cheaper Holosun microdot from traders at say, level two, and at level 3 have access to the aimpoint microdot, which would showed as being better. It would offer more sight choices and lower price options for the traders and newer players. Now you already have this implemented with different TYPES of sights. But I mean different versions of the same sight, as in the difference between the Holosun Tube sight (mine) and the Aimpoint Patrol. Same as the Aimpoint T1, and the Holosun 403a microdot sight. Stuff more like that. Anyways those are my proposals. I would very much like to see the first one implemented as red-dot sights will otherwise just be glorified iron sights. Dust stuff isn't very important for games but it could be a big part of the game later on. And more sights would be coming anyways, so I suppose I didn't really need to list that one.. but oh well. Anyways thanks for reading my essay.
