Just wanted to stop by and show my support for the mod. Its amazing!

 

On a side note, "Jap" is still considered an ethnic slur and is pretty offensive. Its not that hard to write "Japanese".

 

If your getting upset by the abbreviation 'Jap' that's your problem......but please don't start policing our forum with your issues.

 

As others have pointed out,British people are Brits,Australians are Aussies,need I go on?....and I'm afraid the Japanese race will almost always be regarded as Japs,especially on a dedicated WW2 forum section.I'm British and can't even begin to understand why the word Brit could become offensive.

 

So how on earth is the word Jap offensive for God's sake ?......it's an abbreviation of the word Japanese........sorry,but with all respect,this is just daft.

And guess how much I as a German care if in a thread, especially one referring to WW2, people ask i.e.: "PLZ make the Krauts have German voices!" or say "Look at my new mission; kick Jerry's ass in Normandy!" 

 

I don't care and I don't feel offended by this.  It's period accurate vocabulary and is far from racial slur.  I refrain from giving examples of more derogatoy examples for all the nations here, but believe me there ARE really insulting words for all the nations taking part in WW2, and "Jap" or "Kraut" are rather harmless compared to them...

 

Oh, and BTW I do actually LIKE to eat Sauerkraut! :yummy:  So that means only those Germans who don't like that food can feel "righteously offended" or what?  LOL!!!

 

Just my 2 shiny German EURO Cents, and I hope we're finished with this complaining now!

Considering getting my own arma server again, would any one be intrested in playing some semi serious (No bullshit) 6 Commando missions / Special service brigade ops?

Well I didn't think so many people would get so upset by my comment. I was not attempting to police anything and this was not my personal issue. It would appear I have been policed haha so with that I'll leave you all to it. 

 

To the mod creators - truly beautiful work!

Hello everyone!
We are all slowly returning from our respective summer breaks, currently we are focusing on the last few tasks in preparation for the highly anticipated IV release.
The coming update is going to be a rarther big one and it’s taking a conciderable amount of time, but we are confident it will be well worth the wait. ;)
Therefore I would like to give you a little update on some of the backstage work we’ve been doing!

 

In the last few months we have been focusing on three main areas:

  1. Porting old assets.
  2. Creating completely new vehicles.
  3. Developing new terrains.

While the work of porting some of the older HIP assets has been completed we are well aware that some of them are not really up to ArmA III standards and would need a graphical update,but we’ve decided to release some of them for two primary reasons:

  1. They could potentially be important for gameplay purposes.
  2. We felt that all the hard work of the HIP developers should not be wasted nor left behind.

In short you can expect some new tanks and trucks to play with. ;)

 

While we were porting the old assets Lodu was hard at work on the creation of some new models, focusing especially on german recon vehicles.
I won’t reveal every single model in the next update but I would like to show you something:

The first recon vehicle is the venerable Sd.Kfz 222, it mounts a 20mm cannon and a mg34.

One of the features we are most proud of, you will be able to choose diffent camouflage patterns and even the ability to add some camouflage on it!

The second vehicle is the Sd.Kfz 234/1. While It mounts the “same” turret of the Sd.kfz 222 and as the 222 you will be able to choose different camos!

We will probably add some variant of those new vehicles in the future, like the famous “Puma” that mounts a 75mm gun.
There are few more in the making but I’m afraid you will need to wait a little bit longer... :)

 

The good news is, we are FAR from finished! We are also working on two brand new terrains as we’ve already announced in the past. The new Pegasus map will require much more time because we decided to create some unique assets for it such as the famous Pegasus bridge, Horsa bridge and some new French houses and farms!
We also have plans for a European vegetation pack that will include the famous bocage of Normandy.
While the project is rather ambitious, We are determinated to accomplish it!

While the development of the assets for the Pegasus map continues, CypeRevenge has been really busy on finishing our second terrain that will focused on the Pacific theater. More specifically the Handerson Airfield area.
You will be able to fight for your chosen side in the dense jungles of Guadalcanal, Scroll up to see some screenshots! ;)

 

As always we don’t have any set date for the next release, the amount of work required is enormous but you should be able to play with the new toys soon!

@giallustio, Awesome news! I can't wait to have some more assets to play with, especially HIP. The pacific front was beginning to feel a bit lonely.

Very, Very, cool lads. I wanna ask if there are any Sub-variants planned of the 222 & 234? Like the Sd.Kfz 223 (1: armed with MG34 or 42 & fitted with a long range radio) or the 3 other 234 variants; like the /2 famously know as the "Puma", ("I like to call it the Warthog""Sir, are you sure? It kinda look like a Puma""What in Sam's hell is a Puma?!?" RvB Pun, couldn't help it!) and /3 nicknamed “Stummel” equipped with the 7.5 cm K51 L/24 standard howitzer and of course my favourite The /4 “Pak-Wagen” or tank hunter variant, open-topped with a 7.5 cm PaK 40 L/46.
