Thank you for the new version!
However for me performance took a significant hit with this version. Maybe even 50% less frames in a heavy battle. Disabling the new features doesnt seem to help much (VCM_AISNIPERS,VCM_AISUPPRESS). Also lag spikes every 2 seconds
It's nice to be able to completely change the pace using the Arma sandbox. Tapping into some of the core features from Ravage can create some cool walking simulator style missions, kinda like theHunter, Firewatch etc....the Livonia terrain perfectly suited to for hunting quarry!
Good non combat missions are at a premium, my first foray into Arma 2 was an orienteering mission for Chernarus, that mission pretty much made me learn and memorise Chernarus in it's entirety, these kind of scenarios release the pressure of a combat situation and really allow you to appreciate both landscape and soundscape...
....or maybe i'm just getting softer in my older age.
