Arma 3 Art of War DLC Feedback

Recommended Posts

Dear community,

 

On behalf of its primary initiator and developer, Scott Alsworth, we'd like to welcome you to the Arma 3 Art of War DLC. This charity DLC is the result of the Art of War contest we hosted last year. One of its highlights is therefore a showcase of the splendid creative contributions by many of you. Thank you again for your pieces of art! 🎨

 

Arma 3 Art of War DLC

 

As we covered in our most recent SITREP, we decided to add to the content of this DLC by producing a set of assets related to the contest themes. We hope you'll enjoy this mix of premium and platform content!

 

We invite you to buy this DLC and in doing so offer your contribution to the International Committee of the Red Cross (all of our revenue from this DLC will be donated to them). After a fundraising period of about 10-12 months, this DLC will become free to all players.

Note: owners of the Supporter Edition of Arma 3 (no longer available) will receive this DLC for free, though they could still consider buying a copy for a friend as gift 👼

 

How to access the showcases?

While spoilers may be less applicable to the showcases in this DLC, please consider using the spoiler widget when discussing the gameplay moments.

  • Main Menu: SINGLEPLAYER > SHOWCASES
    • Art of War (anyone can visit)
    • Cultural Property (owners only)

 

How to access the assets?

  • Main Menu: Shift + P
    • In the DLC Content Browser, select Art of War, and explore its contents.
      • Some assets have a TRY button that will open the asset in …
  • Main Menu: TUTORIALS > VIRTUAL ARSENAL
    • Each asset category shows the appropriate DLC / mod icons behind each asset for easy identification.
      • Use Sort by mod to make it even easier to find them.
    • Note: in this mode you should be able to preview the assets without DLC ownership.
  • Main Menu: EDITOR
    • In the Asset Browser on the right, all assets are marked by the DLC / mod icon.
      • Use the Filter by mods option and select Arma 3 Art of War.

I have a feature request:
Can we have the gallery building available as a composition? (with added exterior, of course)

I could imagine this being a Workshop composition that we can publish post-release. Do you imagine it being with / without the artworks and such, or just the structures?

I'm not sure. Maybe both?

Also, I'd like to report a "bug". In the gallery, you can see the unit type when you point at the CTRG "model". If it's not intentional, creating them as vehicles (instead of units) can fix the issue.

I applaud the new civilian units that are available in the Eden Editor, I especially like the way most of them are now configured to spawn with backpacks. (the new civilian backpacks are most welcome too :rthumb:

It would be neat if this kind of configuration could be extended to some of the other civilian units from the vanilla platform and previous expansions, small details maybe, but they certainly add a little more immersion when making use of the Civilian Presence modules. 

All in all a very cool selection of themed assets.

I second this, it would be cool to have as a template.

Is there any chance that a H_Hat_black would be added for the new Formal Suit (Black)?

It's a classy idea. For 2.02 it's too late I'm afraid, but we'll add it to our wishlist.

The Formal Suit's Shoes bottoms are Red. Not sure if this was wanted.

 

Seems like they are missing a texture.

Indeed it was not, and it's been fixed meanwhile. The next Dev / RC updates will reflect this 🙂

I bought it and I like everything about it, although I am completely biased since I am Dutch 😁

 

I couldn't get the FFV working for the coffin, is this a bug? 😉

Quick question: Will missions using assets from the DLC (the paintings, coffins, uniforms etc.) still work for people who do not own it? (as long as they're not wearing the clothes etc. that is). Wondering if I should include some of these assets in missions for my group or not.

Hoi! That clearly needs a mod 😎 There are some 'hidden' animations available for the coffin though ...

Yes, that has always been the pillar of our DLC strategy. All props can be freely used by anyone without restrictions whatsoever. Premium items (such as uniforms) can still be included in the scenario, but will be some restrictions to non-owners. They will see DLC notifications while wearing them for example. But you should not have any problems including them in your missions.

We hope to release these, but cannot confirm a timeline as we need artists available to clean up / prepare the PSD files.

Hiya! Dimensions are 1024x1024 - I've attached a reference image below that you can use to properly arrange your image, as there are a few additional components you will most likely want to include 😉. Have fun!

Hi, it's technically possible and the official variants use this same technique; you mainly need to know the texture path and have a UV texture template. We are working to provide such templates, but cannot yet confirm a timeline.
