Can't spot through glass

its impossible to alt spot opfor through any form of glass, destructable or not.

that makes absolutely no sense to me whatsoever. you can see through it so why do you have to shoot it out before you can tag them. it is baffling that people do not complain about this.

and bulletproof glass at the end of surgery, for example, forces you to lean around the door frame which almost always will lead to death. sure you can call it out on mic, but without using alt people cannot see the red nametag indicator. this is a huge discrepancy that needs to be amended asap

    Do you think computers can see? How much level design or coding have you done? Just wondering.

    The game code draws a line of sight (LOS) between two pawns. If it touches ANYTHING, that breaks the LOS and deems the player not to be able to 'see' it since a solid object (the glass) is in the way.

    It would take a fair bit of extra code to parse LOS obstructions by material params, and someone has to pay for the time it takes one or more engineers to do it. Also, it might slow the game down as the code has to constantly do material checks every time your LOS line hits something.

    AAPG is EOL (end of life) as the new one is being developed. You really got here much too late to spend so much time being upset about the old one. This free game came out in 2013. If you hang around though, you should be able to tell the Devs how to make the new game though!

    This has been a test of the emergency flame-fest system. Please do not adjust your set.
