Spawning with radios....

Recommended Posts

So apparently in experimental, you are now going to spawn with a radio that reaches the entire map. Not sure if they will put it in stable but I would like to know how the RP server will utilize this?

It will most likely be the same.. Most the people I run into don't actually have a walkie talkie with a battery and still use a "radio"

The only way people will start using this is if you didn't need to hold it in your hands to use. Obviously you should have to change frequencies by going into your inventory but switching from direct to global should be like switching to vehicle chat. These radios have clips on them so it would be nice if they would just attach to your jacket or something.

[align=justify]Do you really have to hold them to use them? I know for sure that to receive it has only to be online in your inventory. I don't remember how is it with transmitting. Also I think it's great that they will cover up the whole map and anable radio wars IG ::P  The second thing - nothing will change - people will use TS as it gives advantage in firefight due to transmissions not being heard IG.

If people spawn with them, perhaps it could be made so that in order to use TS in an IC fashion, one must have a radio on them (powered or not). Would be a bit interesting, I think.

This will be great if only to have a physical item to take in hostage scenarios. It'd be interesting if it was made compulsory to have a radio to use teamspeak too.

The fact that players will be spawning with them probably doesnt mean that it will stay that way, if long at all. I'd imagine like most new/changed features its for testing purposes to see how the community responds to the differences.

I love that the devs are working on a global radio but honestly if you have to hold it in your hands for it to work... I don't see many people using this for RP or even on public servers. 

One can only dream of DayZRP with Task Force Radio plugin :'(

radios are nice, they can be use for IC communication but I don't think TS is gonna die. there's just too much banter when nothing is happening in the game. that's like half the fun of DayZRP is to be able to banter with people on TS and make friends

How about people that are going to troll with the new radio's if it reaching the entire map? How to control the message's?

I think this will be a problem for a RP server.

Meh some people will stick to Teamspeak, some people would use the radios for immersion, same with 1st person and 3rd person views. Personally Im not sure if I like the idea of everyone starting with a radio, but I do like the idea that the radios can reach across the maps.

I think it'll be a good edition, an improved form of Global Chat from Mod would be cool in my opinion

Been waiting for this for a long time! (PROVIDED THERE'S A GROUP OPTION OR SOMETHING OR FREQUENCIES and LOTS OF EM)

My opinion and I don't care what anyone says about this, I want this to be the only way to properly communicate with your friends.

THIS IS REALISTIC! No more hiding whilst contacting your crew to come save you, do it in front of them as you would in real life.

You love roleplaying, well here's your chance to prove it.

OOC talks on TS... sure, but ANY in-game radio info should be done on in-game radio is a dream of mine and I hope it happens!
