There isn't an option to turn thermal vision off! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

Unless I'm missing something, I don't see it anywhere (even checked in the gadets spot, not there).

Will there be an option or can we get a patch for this?!<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I think that is a good idea. It would make smokes a lot more valuable.

Another thing I would like to see, although I don't know how hard it would be to change/fix, would be a lessening of the GPS scans you can use.

I normally have turned them off because I feel 10 sweeps is way too many. I feel that 4 or 5 at the very most would be sufficeient.

But it's not a game breaker for me.

what do u mean "cant turn thermal off"?
if everyone is using thermal goggles than what good are smoke grenades??

how does the GPS work? does it reveal everyone on the map for a few seconds?

and one more question -
are flashbangs effective ONLY when u stare into the blast? is avoiding their affect is as easy as looking away from them? if so, what good are they?

That's my point exactly. In Black Arrow we always played with the thermals OFF so the smoke concealed movement much better in games. You get pinned down, you popped a smoke, gave it a sec, then moved to a secure location.

I was under the impression that you had to UNLOCK the thermal vision in order to use it. Maybe it's still like that, just available for the demo. IMO, having to get the goggles for night/thermal vision should come as a selected item, just as grenades, smoke, gas masks, etc.

I think you unlock the ability to WEAR the night vision goggles. If you look at the head gear part, under eyes you have the option for Night vision locked out.

Maybe I read your post wrong though...

Like they've been telling us, they've been looking for balance. Wouldn't be balanced to have smoke but not thermal. However, thermal is only good for a short distance.

Everyone has access to Nightvision Goggles, that's just there in the Head area to give your character night vision goggles to physically wear. Understand?

I hate how you cant launch a game with only 1 player in the room.

When I first got the demo I wanted to run around and learn the map but you have to wait untill afew poeple join your game.

And even Terrorist hunt co-op you cant launch with one player WTF?????

I completley understand. I'm just wondering why you can restrict weapons/items but not the views. And as I said, it was in the previous versions of Rainbow Six, just not in this one.

And I to miss the ability to walk the maps. It was a great way for me to warm up my server while waiting for people to join..<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
