Operation Autumn Forge

Version 0.5

 

Promo1.jpg

 

A total conversion mod for Arma: Cold War Assault, set in grim alternate 1980s, when Cold War went HOT!

 

See how NATO excercise "Autumn Forge" incidentally causes an all-out war with Warsaw Pact. Take part in virtual battles which are not only inspired by historical warfare, but also
historical gaming!

 

Relive Cold War in a retro style, taken straight from an era of 8 bit microcomputers and VGA resolution!

 

Operation Autumn Forge is the first mod in Arma history to use a cutting-edge "RIP - Real Innovative Play" technology by Alex_Mercer (@prototype1479).

 

To enable "RIP" in your missions, place a game logic found in editor.

Since April Fool's is over, we can talk seriously now.

 

Yes, infantry models are taken straight from BIS fire-geo LOD. As you can see, it's quite big when compared to regular visible LOD. That's why best PvP players often turn their detail settings to lowest values - not only it helps with performance, but allows you to see better actual unit boundaries.

 

However, in the future of this project, I'm planning to add some more detail to the models - both infantry, and vehicles. In it's current form it's just a joke, not to be taken seriously (though idea of "retro-styled OFP" has some merit).

I actually thought about making a mod like this many years ago with very low polygon models and cartoonish textures just to see how close to actual military sized units the engine could cope with needed for operations on islands like Nogova.

IIRC there was one released on this very forum, few years back. Someone simply cut all the detail LODs but the last, to use it in some sort of RTS mission. But I can't find it anymore.
