did you consider a port to RHS/Unsung/IFA3//WW2 and its custom terrains yet?

Hi. All scripts and functions were written and described to allow easy port to any terrain and any faction. You can look at the README.TXT how to do it. Also I can help you with the porting and send graphic files. Feel free to contact me on STEAM

I don't run any servers. But WarMachine is ready for hosted and dedicated servers.

If you want to run a server or host a game, use server name WarMachine - PvP and set max. players to 48. Then it will be easy to find your server for other players.

So far I'm quite impressed with the mode, it's elegantly streamlined and the design feels well executed. Just had time to try it briefly in single player - that and CoOP require the use of zeus functionality to get the AI moving anywhere, something which most potential players probably are not well familiar with. Mode gets the player quickly into action without too much configuration (but still a good array of options to select from). Some key functionality of ARMA such as supports and vehicles, as well as commanding, are well exposed but rationed with hard timers and don't get into the way of infantry action too much. Surroundings are probably not always well matched to the action as the mission location is either random or set by the player - variety is pretty much guaranteed though.

 

One of the major gripes so far is lack of minimap when playing infantry. Sounds small but it's a bit of a nuisance when the mode is so easy to get to otherwise. The capture bar could be a bit more conspicious as well.

 

Overall, shows lots of promise. A step up from KotH while being miles more easy going than heavy learning intensive modes like BECTI. Might be interested to try and run this on a PvP server in a few weeks.

 

Has this been playtested a lot?

Hi Varis. Thanks for your feedback.

 

The mode is pimarily designed for PvP. If player is a squad leader, Ai units follow him and populate the battlefield. 

SP/Coop is only addition. Ideal for practice, or testing . Zeus is quite fast and suitable for organising enemy units. Script will be, in my opinion, more restrictive. I tried to make script for AI to behave autonomously, but Zeus is still better solution and gives you more options.

Main goal of the mod is variability. Every created mission layout is different and it sometimes cause mismatch.

Minimap is available if you have GPS in the inventory. Same functionality as in vanilla Arma3.

The capture bar and UI elements are Arma default. I want to use as much default Arma UI and mechanics as possible. It's then easy to learn for new players who are already familiar with the UI.

WarMachine was playtested quite a lot, but not on a full server. It took me more then 1 year to develop this mod. Now it's your turn Guys, PLAY IT, TEST IT ;-)

 

Good luck.

Is there a disadvantage to selecting a Missile specialist?

As missile specialist you can't choose machineguns (LMG, MMG), sniper rifles and ghillie suits. In WarMachine each combat role is limited to six per team.
