POLICE mode

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

During my last fly with the M2000 someone asked me what was the purpose of the POLICE mode (POL). I explained him as mentioned in the manual:

"POL: Police mode. The system provides guidance to a locked target for identification. No weapons are available in this mode, even if the Master Arm switch is in the ON position."

 

And then I said right now I'm locking you with the master arm ON and the 530 selected with the POL mode but I can't shot.... you... WTF!

The missile was launched and killed him. At that moment I just lost a good friend. :music_whistling:

 

So my question:

Is the POL mode purpose is to make us dumb when you are trying to explain someone what it is supposed to do?

It's currently the American Police mode. It shoots you even if you're innocent. :-P

C'mon. Its only a joke.

 

Not to folks in the U.S. or N.A. in general it isn't.

 

Check the news outside of Spain and see the social upheaval regarding this issue. This is not a joking issue - and I'm pretty sure that the largest percentage of members here just got insulted.

Very poor taste indeed and highly innapropiate.

 

If someone feels hurt by a innocent joke on the web, keep your morality to youself please. Thank you for respect the freedom of speech in the future. :thumbup:

 

Regards.

 

You have just contradicted yourself here son.

You have just contradicted yourself here son.

Well Kiddo I wrote that with a purpose. If you think that you didn`t get the point here That's an example. What is innapropiate is very subjective, arbitrary in some cases.

 

Freedom of speech is very important. Maybe you, pals, don't appreciate it because is something you always had. You don't know what you have until It's gone. But in more places than you think in the world, Freedom of speech is only a dream.:cry:

 

That's all.

Regards

Good to know I'm not the only one who noticed this bug!

 

And can we move on from the joke? It was a bit of dark humor, life goes on. Sithspawn will already be on his way so let's not descend any further!

It is a bug. In POL mode all weapons are safetied so you cannot shoot anybody. Fix will be available on next update.

As Zeus said :)

 

In fact, POL is a "master mode" (as are 530, MAG, CAN...) of the avionics. So we should not be able to select both POL and MAG, or POL and 530... etc. It's one or the other.

 

While 530, MAG and CAN allow for firing a dedicated weapon each, POL is there to get ~ the same features (radar modes... etc.) as 530 without having selected any weapon = without ability to shoot something.

Actually the joke was funny, but, hey nice the bug will be fixed, even if i don't have the module.

 

PS : people are putting themselve in a shell because of the reality and trying to make it worse, like an insult, if you get hurt, then there is a problem because words don't hurt, your brain react like it's hurting.

 

peace
