    Alex AMS got a reaction from TheJP in Press Pass Questions   
    The press pass is available to anyone.  It's just how we restrict the number of non player/sponsor photographers on the field.  It has the same rights as any other ticket.

    Alex AMS got a reaction from TheJP in Krytac Trident Enhanced as a support weapon for MilSim?   
    You're good to go.  It's essentially just like a Shrike, but a little more updated.  It's basically the same operation with slightly different fur furniture.

    Were going to reset it, and run an upgrade.  I'm just willing to bet it isn't at the top of our priorities list right now.

    I have seen them around, but you would probably have more luck looking at reenactment type groups.  Short google search found this:

    OCP is Multicam/ Multicam is OCP.  It's the same thing as far as the Army is concerned, and it's the same thing as far as AMS is concerned.

    You will have a better chance of ending up on the same squad if everyone that registers put the same thing in the team affiliation line.  Its easier to miss an individual person the way that the ticketing system spits out the information.  If everyone puts "unicorn" then they will be placed on the same squad.  Just ask the other guys what they put, you don't actually have to be a member of their team.

    Alex AMS reacted to Zone in Would this classify as a dmr or rifleman   
    Welcome to the forums, make sure to read the rules!  Most of your questions will likely be answered there:  http://americanmilsim.com/forum/index.php?/topic/3201-american-milsim-ruleset/
     
     
    From the rules:
     
    DESIGNATED MARKSMAN RIFLE (DMR)
    Designated Marksman Rifle is a special purpose weapon; it is a standard infantry rifle equipped with optics that have been enhanced for longer range and accuracy. Some examples of a DMR are - M16, SR-25, PSG-1, M14/M21, G36, AUG, G3-SG3, Dragunov (SVD) etc... Bolt action rifles may also function as a DMR as long as they adhere to the Max FPS.
     A. Designated Marksman Rifle (DMR) may ONLY operate SEMI-AUTO mode and must be physically incapable of firing in full-auto.
    B. 450 fps max @ 6mm x .20g, 345 fps max @ 8mm x .34g for AEG
    C. 355 FPS max (1.88 J) for 6mm x .32g for Gas Weapons (Classics, PolarStars, GBBRs).
    D. Limit ONE (1) DMR per squad (or otherwise stated).
    E. Weapons using an external gas source must have a locked regulator to prevent field adjustment.
    F. Operators of a DMR are required to carry either a standard AEG or sidearm to engage targets within the minimum engagement distances.
    G. Mid or Real Cap Magazines only.
    H. Minimum engagement distance of 60 feet.
    I.  Carbine rifles do not qualify for DMR
    J.  May not engage targets within the same building.
    K. May carry 7 magazines on your person.

    Alex AMS got a reaction from EODGUY02 in HWS and vehicle take down   
    Your correlating it backwards.  The intent is that a round must make a pop/flash/bang to kill troops.  This is to mitigate the insane amount of "I just killed all those guys with my silent nerf round that landed where none of them saw it" that we deal with at each event.  Thus, the nerf rocket's only purpose is to take out vehicles.  The TagInn rounds can still take out vehicles if they hit a vehicle, just like they have before.  I'll work with JP on the lingo in the ruleset to see if we can clarify it a little better.

    There is currently no plan to remove snipers from AMS games.  I'm locking this post, and changing the title to avoid confusion in the future.  This is how rumors start.

    Alex AMS reacted to unipus in Need to re-address no MED rule with AEGs   
    If I'm understanding the OP correctly, he'd rather get shot 10 times in the face from 20 feet away than a couple of times from 8 feet? No thanks. Glad to see everyone in here putting this idea out to pasture. Minimum engagement rules cause way more trouble than they're worth.

    Alex AMS got a reaction from lonnie in FORT HOOD ENTRY FOR RDG *** PLEASE READ ***   
    This is unconfirmed, but I'm pretty sure that it will work for you.  If you head towards Copperas Cove on 190, take Route 9 to 116, take 116 north to Elijah Rd, then take Elijah Rd East to West Range Rd.  Take West Range Rd North to the MOUT site.   DO NOT TAKE THE SHORT ROUTE LISTED ON THESE DIRECTIONS BECAUSE IT WILL TAKE YOU THROUGH THE MAIN POST ON FORT HOOD.

    SD gets a little more leeway on uniforms. As long as the uniform is black, white, or grey its pretty much good to go. Black Kryptek is fine.

    Alex AMS got a reaction from Blake in What to expect   
    You can return to your campsite/car whenever you want, but it would benefit your faction to run it through your chain of command.  There will be game play through dark hours.  Once the game has ended, it has ended. Players will not be staying on the field overnight, this gives the staff time to set things up, or make changes to the field if needed.

    Alex AMS got a reaction from Callsign-Hammer in Parent/Guardian question.   
    We don't care what they do, as long as they are on site.  It's really up to you guys.  As long as we can get ahold of them with the bull horn in the event that you get hurt, that's all that we care about.  There have been many parents that just chill in their cars, read books at the camp site, watch movies, etc.  I would imagine that it's pretty boring, but it's part of the deal.

    Alex AMS got a reaction from TheJP in Soft Shell Question   
    It's hard to see with the lighting that they use.  I always say that OD green is the base for CoST and PSA.  If it looks MUCH lighter then OD, then I would say no.  There are many pictures online that have the colors look different.  Typically items that are actually Foliage Green are not allowed. The photo you you linked to makes it look like it has a lot of grey in it to me.  I would encourage you to take a picture with good lighting of your jacket and post it up.  The reality is that I'm hesitant to say yes, because I've had plenty of people tell me it's a certain color, and we say yes, then they show up, and it looks like the opposing faction's color.

    You could use this loadout as long as there is an E10 contingent attached to UFS, which should be every time that UFS is present as a faction.
