@BAMSLAM Your Modern Warfare screenshots are fantastic.

 

Which mod that you listed includes the red and black camo that some of the Russian units wear? I can't find it.

Thanks

I am under the impression that this new rule about private addons was made in anger after several screenshots including said addons were posted without permission from their authors. I am tempted to say "Don't share your stuff with people you don't trust - or don't share them at all". This is purely a trust issue between a very few members of the community; imposing a new rule restricting private asset screenshots is not the adequate response, and it keeps a lot of us from sharing our experimentations...

Not 100% accurate, the biggest issue was and always using ported content from other games, which has always been a rule, but there were members stretching this rule, significantly.. the DayZ stuff in particular.

Normally George, I'm 100% with you but on this I think, respectfully, you're wrong.

I hope this a preemptive strike against some toxic bullshit that's a long way from the cherished Arma ethos.

I also think your stuff is highly regarded enough that just posting screens in your release thread is hitting your target audience just fine! ?

Not really mate, using ported content was always against forum rules, but you had to know what to look for, it's not easy to spot, so very little was done, only when it was noticeable, like the DayZ stuff, or mods used without permission from steam (Yuri Ptreov's Blackhawk's for example) that the boundary was being pushed, the "Private addons" were such addons, where ported content were a significant feature.

There are indeed people passing "private" stuff, such as content from unreleased addons, to friends and then more friends and they get released as part of other peoples "private addons"

If you think this is an issue, you should actually see the stance BI take when it's their assets that have been ripped, and ported to other games, there's plenty of threads on facepunch.com forums where BI take a very serious view towards ripped content, as do RHS.

To the well meaning community members who take the time to check up and report addon's being used; please remember the forum rules also say this

 

Quote

16) Report rule violations

If you see a violation of these rules on the board, do not reply in the thread but send a PM to a moderator or use the "Report Post" link (next to the date/time of post) instead. Replying in the thread will be considered as spam. Reporting posts contributes to a well structured, well disciplined forum which benefits everyone.

 

 :D

This is also my opinion , the same as yours , for the ported content and i 'm not saying about that ,

but for the arma 3 creations , for those that really are , unrealished or WIP privacy .

 

So else , rules are rules .

I get where you're coming from on this George, the words "Private addons" was easier to write down, as opposed to "ripped content from X, Y or Z game" :D it drew less attention to the contents.

I've seen the very same reaction on reddit Arma3, where people question why "showboating" content that others, especially the majority will never get their hands on, due to the Private partit's a bit like taking a fat kid to a cake shop, and making him look through the window, whilst you happily stuff your face from the inside of the shop.

Well a simple solution would be if you intend to post a screenshot of WIP content, why not create a thread in ARMA 3 - ADDONS & MODS: DISCUSSION. That way its very clear what is it, especially if you link back to it when posting an photo on the photography thread.

The posters in your screenshot are from WW2 Flanders (Belgium). 
On the left is de Clerq, a Flemish nationalist collaborator. On the right a recruitment poster for the Flemish men to join the Waffen SS.
Not really Russian ;)

 

Cool screenshot none the less!

Aye R0adki11 it's cup Chernarus I just assumed that comes under cup in addons. Will add in future if needed.

 

Thanks for the clarification, i couldn't even tell it was Chernarus hence why asked. If you put CUP Terrains that would certainly help to clarify things in the future. :thumbs-up:

@BAMSLAM

Hey is your last pic taken in the map "Hurtgenwald"? I've seen some pics mentioning it in the list of addons before but I cant find that map anywhere;  Where can I get it? Or was it the WIP map for the cancelled Westwall mod or something? 

 

Always forgot to ask about this until your latest pic showed up haha; beautiful screenhot btw (;
