    Default Day of Defeat Realism

    Have any of you guys ever heard of it? Realism gaming is where you try to conduct yourselves as close to real life as possible.

    That would include server-sided plugins that would only allow you to spawn once, take away your icons above teamates' heads, take away your map, make it to where your voice can only be heard by people close to you (including your enemies), make it to where you have iron sights, taking away of death messages (including scores; basically makes it to where you don't have any idea of who is alive or not), and other things. This basically makes Day of Defeat a whole different experience.

    You work together as a team to take out the opposition. This also leads to some very intense situations, such as not knowing if your team is alive or dead. This can lead to some very very tense situations (You type Report In, and no one types back, and then you hear someone jump). Basically, this is why I have dropped off of this forum for the most part (to those who remember me at all).

    Realism units have different ranks, and depending on what rank you are is what weapons you can use.

    I didn't know if you had ever heard of something like this, so I just wanted to let you guys have the oppertunity of hearing about this. If you are interested in something like this, e-mail me, and I will tell you more about it.

    Day of Defeat is far from being a "realistic" game.

    If you want a realistic WW game, try Red Orchestra Ostfront.

    But then again, not everyone can play Red Orchestra Ostfront. I, like others, only can play these types of games because of their computers. Not only that, this is good for the people who play Day of Defeat and want something different from the average game.

    Nothing else, you should show up and give it a try. You might be suprised at what we have done with Day of Defeat.

    ROO is far from being a demanding game. It uses the Unreal Engine 2 and it's the most scalable engine out there.
    Moreover, DoD is simply an arcadey game whereas ROO is miles ahead in terms of complexity and realism.

    Thing is, he's not talking about the realism of the game, he's talking about mods for DoD that force players to conduct themselves realistically to change the gameplay experience.

    I like the idea, I just hope they can pull it off correctly. Even if a game is made to be as realistic as Red Orchestra Osfront, you can't stop the players from playing them in an arcade-ish manner, but if it were possible to get people to take their time and act as if they really needed to stay alive over anything else the whole experience might become more realistic.

    people say they want a more realistic experience but then they complain when the conveinences are missing

    for example without a map in an open field or jungle players get annoyed and stop playing

    and only respawning once, without being able to save usually will make the player quit right off the bat

    think about it, yea realism in games make them extremly interesting but make it too realistic and it gets annoying

    When we think about the different things that we are going to do, we do concider what is or is not fun. Everything that is in our realism unit is made so it is fun, not tedious.
