(Arma2 1.04.59668) Engine uses bounding sphere of the hitzone to calculate how big volume of hitzone was hit. Such hitpoint can "consume" only the amount of damage that his volume can cover. Small (point) hitzones are calculated as 1/20 of whole model bounding sphere size.

// place model named ttank in game and this into init
ttank addEventHandler ["handleDamage",{hint format ['DAMAGE_ %1', _this]; _this select 2} ] 
when you hit the vehicle, onscreen tip will give you value of the last hit and hitzone name if present

Fire geometry

Content of model that defines shape and penetration.

Surface materials in models define penetrability (distance in mm how far can "standard" bullet get through). Penetrability is based on bullet impact speed and angle. All components are calculated as homogeneous.

In Arma2 it also counts with bullet caliber, that multiplies the trajectory distance through component. Component fully penetrable by bullet but deflecting grenade can be also defined old way with black.pac texture (OFP).

Hitpoint LOD

Content of model that defines hitzones. When bullet hits fire geometry, distance to points from this lod is calculated.

By Q1184:

Findings on indirectHit damage, tested on humans:

Dist <= indirectHitRange: damage = indirectHit * explosive
Dist > indirectHitRange: damage (x) ~= indirectHit * explosive * exp (-2.9 * x / indirectHitRange)

(where x is distance from the border of indirectHitRange zone, so full Dist = x + indirectHitRange)

damage here is damage caused to individual selections, as opposed to overall body damage. this damage then becomes moderated by overall armor and selection armor (setup in class Hitpoints).


selection damage = damage / (armor * selectionArmor)

Distances to individual selections are used in this calculation, so ammo with low indirectHitRange might cause different damages to the selections.

Then it all is turned into overall damage, probable formula is:

damage = (d1+d2+d3+d4) / (4 * armorStructural)//4 is the number hitPoints classes of the current class?

where d1-d4 = selection damages (head-body-hands-legs)
