Twig Snapping Sound + Bear Cubs + Deer in Heat

Recommended Posts

Suggest the player (based on terrain class) generate random twig snapping sounds other players can hear when slow walking. (we've all seen this in movies). Could be a really low value on the random function just as long as there is a chance of it happening. The value could become lower based on the strength of a related soft skill (fox walking). 

Secondly. When bears are implemented it would be nice if their behavior was based on the presence of cubs. Meaning they would be far more agressive and likley to attack they were accompanied by cubs. This same logic could be applied to deer as well (i.e the buck attacks if he's protecting his fawn).  Additionally the buck or bear could be in heat and display a rutting animation to warn players of its agitated state. (have had a close friend hospitalized by a moose in heat). 

A wonderful film that really illustrates how the bears might behave is "Grizzly Man"

      I propose a great way to add variety of objects without much work. 
      Take some of the existing house models and reshade the siding textures. Would make each settlement much more unique. I realize these would need to be their own model but i propose the install size has lots of headroom in it.

      I've been thinking about this for a while, and finally decided to make a post... consider this as feedback/suggestion.
      Suggestion itself is quite simple: completely block or hard-limit moving direction change when sprinting and/or disable sprinting with raised gun.
      Unrealistic zig-zag runs are just irritating, making sniping and single-shot guns nearly useless (it depends on your luck rather than skill). The only effective counteraction for this is "spray and pray" with 90% chance to ruin everything on your target. I know that stamina in upcoming 0.63 update should particularly fix this on long distances, but still every noob with IZH43 who choses to bum-rush into building will have relatively good chances (should have ~0%) against even well-equipped player in protective position.
      However I'm very uncertain about stamina implementation, as I understood it will slow down average speed of players on the map... combined with unusable cars (and it doesn't look like smth will improve in near future) this  may turn game-play very slow and boring as you will spend much more time running between cities.
      I really miss pragmatic long range combat and realistic CQB in SA and thats why mostly I still choose Mod over SA... actually why to invent something AGAIN if you can just port ArmA2 moving mechanics into SA?
      Your thoughts?
      P.S. A little reminder: players still need single/auto switch (tired of using custom mouse commands), and fast reload option for single-shot weapons (IZH18/Bow/LongHorn)
