The constructive criticism is extremly important to us in our ability to be able to improve to which we do appreciate.
A few things just to lay down first, the training mission was constructed a while back and has had to have a few things added and changed in order to get this to work, coupled with the issues we were having before didn't really help matters (neither did the shooting range not working as we had intended and couldn't complete in time). Me and @[BL] Hannibal have very little time to thoroughly test through missions and the training mission, this is not really an excuse but we try to satisfy people with atleast having a mission a week (if we were to test we would have 1 every 2 weeks to allow for everything to be working as intended).
We had been meaning to do this mission last week to which it was working "Perfectly" as intended, the mods then screwed with what we were intending to do (the who-har with CBA_A3 as which you can see on the steam dicussions for the mod itself) which never helped. This is by no means us trying to come up with an excuse but it didn't help us at all and took the time for sorting out the mission for us (We usually spend about 2-3 hours together with @[BL] Hannibal working in the background when he can as the main mission maker at the moment as I learn).
We have a short time to perfect a mission together but the feedback is much welcome and help a lot more than you think
The Training mission I agree with you was spoilt by a very scarce amount of people which caused a lot of learning to be missed (and time), the sound issue with the quietening we will look into as this shouldn't be active (atleast not the high pitched screeching you would get from a loud explosion).
With regards with things to add and improve we will work on mission wise, not a problem we will definitly look into it and improve as mentioned (as was supposed to be but was cut short by lack of time).
What I would like to do if @[BL] Hannibal agrees is to offer private training sessions for those who are interested and did not get what they were looking for out of the mission (that and the shooting range) so we can tailor these to people who would like to learn certain things without the trolling that seemed to be happening by a few people, this also means we can focus on the certain aspects they are looking to either improve or learn (Marksmanship training will not be offered as this is a reserved slot we give to those who are deserving and show some restraint, this is not just a skill based on how well you shoot but is a factor).
We missed some parts of the training as we did not have time to fully complete or did not have time to complete due to quite frankly fucking around by a certain few. I can only apologise for this but it shouldn't really be us apologising, I am just devils advocating this.
Also to note sometimes me and @[BL] Hannibal miss some events in order to work on missions for you guys, so when you see us in the officer room we are more than likely discussing ideas or working on a mission ... please don't annoy us, we are working.
TL:DR - Agreed with distractions being an issue, we have little time to devlope everything but work towards it will all our effort we can put into it (we are gamers too this is our wind down time after work), MarLeo's ideas have been taken onboard and we will try to improve these when we have time to. We will now be working on a mission but those who feel they have missed training might be able to request a private training session for anything they feel they missed or would like to know.
