Welcome to the forum, and thank you for your serving and putting your life on the line to make the world a better place. I agree with you, sometimes in games grenades are underpowered, my brother-in-law also worked on Full Spectrum Warrior. I set off a grenade once by accident, I could not here anything for an hour and I couldn't sleep for two days. It was an M-67 that some U.N "peace-keeping" soldiers lost in my old town in Russia. I picked it up as soon as I saw it, then the pin hooked on to my sleeve and I pulled it off by accident, I realized what I did and ran like the devil behind a nearby corner. Thankfully the building was a factory, not much glass that shattered, but the shrapnel pierced the wooden door/gate! I could not hear anything after that and I ran at least forty feet away from it before it detonated in 10.3 seconds. Good point.

Explosion Realism

Hello, My name is Adam Therio after serving my time with the UN in the Cyprus Conflict (when the Turks invaded we where the peacekeepers) I know how grenades explode and such and personally I would like to see the grenades & RPG’s in this great looking game be treated with the same realism they deserve. Keep in mind RPGs are just rock powered grenades but more powerful.

When they explode please don’t make a fire blast that lights stuff on fire I have never thrown or seen a grenade (assuming is a fragmentation grenade) that lit stuff on fire…

Grenades don’t smoke, they unsettle dust but they don’t make a mushroom cloud OR a could of grey haze, unless u modify them

Grenades break every window around them for 50 meters guaranteed, anyone who’s has had one blow a short distance away knows the little shit that hits you and sticks in you like splinters (you don’t sleep that night) & that little partials in turn breaks windows like extremely fast mini-bb’s.

Grenades are LOUD its gay when I throw a grenade in a game and it goes “bang” if possible could you shake the screen and make a light ringing noise in the audio, it doesn’t matter if your behind cover if you lob a grenade around a corner and it doesn’t go that far your ears are going to hurt/bleed.

Could you make it so you can hold the live grenade? It adds to the strategy greatly if we could through it and it detonate w/o giving the other STALKER’s a chance to run, but at the same time made the timer range from 6-8 sec so if you hold it too long BANG your dead.

I don’t see anything here that would be too hard except maybe the windows breaking as that might take too much CPU usage, If you want a good example rent “Full Spectrum Warrior” and fire the grenade launcher or through a grenade, THAT’S how it happens!
