  1. You're doing a great work sir. I'm sure everyone in the Community is appreciating all the struggle you're going through... just to fix this embarrassing, somewhat gamebreaking issue.
  2. Currently testing this out and it looks great already... This might actually become the first standalone AI enhancement AddOn to be put In my modlist You did an excellent job man so keep up the good work, cause Improvement and realism is always welcome in ArmA Thank you
  3. The pics you're blessing us with are mind blowing... I've probably said it a lot of times but... thank you for all the sacrifices you did and you're still doing to bring us the finest content. You're a pioneer, and i can easily say that the legendary status has been achieved. That being said, keep up the good work man, this terrain is going to be a classic.

    JETS DLC Wishlist

    Those are bad, horrible news... I just hope they'll do something about it in the future, because using any kind of plane is kinda laughable, frustrating and heartbreaking at the moment. Thank you for the precious information though, I didn't see that post before.

    JETS DLC Wishlist

    Even though I'll buy the Jets DLC regardless, I just hope they'll include an "advanced flight model" (for planes) as well... within the main game, of course. I genuinely prefer playing with maximum realism, even if certain aspects of the game might become unusable, like the so called advanced flight model, which is already included. Because of that, I'm currently unable to fly helicopters properly, as I always end up crashing on the ground. That being said, losing control every time isn't really an issue for me... That's what pilots are for. Whoever wants to be something should learn to be it, that's my mindset. It'd be too easy otherwise. I felt pretty satisfied when I destroyed myself while trying to emulate those finest Dslyecxi moves & techniques, shoutout to him. Untouchable, legendary. I agree with those who say that the act of flying, In the ArmA series, has been too easy for a long time but, now, they have the opportunity to fix it. The Jets DLC would be somehow useless without an advancement of BI's flight model technology, in my opinion of course. So I really hope they'll do something about it.
  6. Glad to hear all these great news about your project Mr. HorribleGoat. This will probably be considered a classic A3 addon, a pack of features that, in my honest opinion, is as essential as CBA. Due to some strange, almost game breaking BI's choices we've been trapped, condemned to perpetually engage enemies throughout pale, male only civilian (and military) environments. Thanks to the skills, patience and courage of yourself, part of our struggle is surely going to end. It wasn't a simple task, but you did it. The videos you've provided look great, so... What else can i say? Just keep up the good work.
  7. I disagree, in my opinion detailed interiors don't have an huge impact on playability.If you're talking about rural Takistani building's level of detail, I surely disagree. If I'd have to choose between less buildings-highly detailed interiors and more buildings-less detailed interiors, I'd choose the latter. Why? Because, as you probably know, modeling extras cost a relative amount of frames per second... but that's probably the least important reason of my statement. The second thought I'd like to share is the fact (opinion of mine) that HIGHLY detailed interiors are not needed for general realism purposes, aka standard military operations, even if you're into some counter insurgency operation where some form of intelligence/civilian interaction may be required. As an example, you can look at BISim's As Samawah terrain (VBS2, lite and JCOVE), where buildings, as far as I know, are literally empty (at least in the JCOVE version, but it must be the same in the full version), and neither playability or realism were affected. I'm aware that you could have highly detailed interiors in order to achieve some kind of of cinematic immersion on non military kind of mission, but that's not the main focus of ArmA. Note that this post is not meant to insult anyone, neither I pretend that its content is 100% accurate, so take this stuff as a simple opinion. I may have misunderstood your post.
  8. That's an astounding video sir, but it really wasn't necessary. We all know that this terrain will be a true, mind-blowing masterpiece.... Seriously though, we've witnessed the genesis of a legendary terrain within these precious pages. We've also witnessed the great evolution of the abovementioned land within the frames of the highly anticipated footage you've recently blessed us with... We've seen all of that. But now... now we're hearing the fast paced heartbeats of yourself echoing throughout the empty, fertile soil where magnificent blocks will grow. I can already feel the heat, the pandemic passion of the whole squad on my bruised skin... Don't give up man. That being said, I've seen a lot of interesting elements thanks to the showcase. To be more precise, I like how polished it's turning out, how clean, "stabilized" it appeared in the video. It's great. The satmap and the overall feel of the terrain itself it's almost perfect, y'all did an extremely good job on that, but I'm sure you're going to surprise me even more... Good luck and keep up the good work, don't give up and never look back... keep your eyes focused on the objective, and keep your hands steadily attached to the pen: You're writing history.
  9. So, according to the first link you've posted, the line "cursorTarget == _target" can used to check whether the unit is targeted by the player. Am I wrong? I'm not an expert on this argument, so i apologize for my ignorance.
  10. Great showcase..That's exactly one of the things I was trying to accomplish, man: I will check your code out as soon as possible, it looks very interesting and quite reliable. Thank you for the useful material you've provided, It'll be analyzed.
  11. I cosign this.There you can find the greatest US Army units currently available in ArmA 3, perfectly crafted material. A must have for every Gulf War enthusiast. Highly recommended.
  12. Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen, First of all, I have no clue nor experience on how to script advanced stuff, but I've been recently wondering whether it would be possible to check, using some function that I may not be aware of, whether a (civilian) unit is being consciously aimed at/targeted within a certain radius/range like, let's say... 5 meters or something similar. The hypothetical scenario I would like to achieve, is the following: I would like to trigger a predetermined reaction when a certain unit is aware that he's being, like I said before, aimed at by a Bluefor soldier, but I'm not sure if such a thing is doable in an easy and struggle-free manner. Is there a command/function that I may study? Thank you in advance for the suggestions.

    Tried it, worked as expected. Amazing work. Just a question: Would it be possible to improve the damage inflicted by stones? Ignore this if it's out of your plans.

    This looks great man... I haven't tried it yet, but from what I've seen/heard, it reminds me of the "angry civilians" function in VBS, that'd let a crowd of enraged AI controlled civs, to throw rocks and insults (maybe) at coalition forces. I think that such a feature is necessary in ArmA, in order to correctly represent intense, raw scenarios, where supposedly "wrong" decisions made by NATO forces, contribute to the genesis of an harsh, hostile environment within the civilian population, with all the consequences of the abovementioned issue (more savage insurgency activities, violent protests, angry civilians protecting insurgents, etc.). Since the devs kidnapped the amazing, necessary, precious civilian interaction system (A2CO) from the development of ArmA 3, it's always good to see some form of civilian interaction getting crafted. This and other features would let us to recreate properly the atmosphere of early-mid-late 2000s counter insurgency operations in Iraq, which was/is the most interesting/fascinating (I'm not condoning nor approving it in this sentence tho) period in modern warfare operations, in my very honest opinion. Keep up the good work..
  15. The development of this terrain slowed down after the known lighting update, due to some serious aesthetic issues regarding the SatMap, terrain textures and overall look of the map itself (and because of some real life issues).I tried to fix the abovementioned issues but, unfortunately, I failed miserably at every attempt... Besides that, I fixed some height issues about the river and the land around it, but it's still being worked on due to some strange loss of some project data. Also, the placement of roads and paths is almost finished. I currently have to fix those tremendous lighting issues before proceeding with the development, because now the terrain is cancerous to look at. In order to acknowledge and analyze the concepts and characteristics of the new lighting system, I started a new terrain based on an area of approximately 5x5 km near Mazar I Sharif (Afghanistan) to know what I should've done in order to make a terrain look homogeneous and good. I'm pretty satisfied about it, because the surface, the terrain itself looks pretty good, but there's still some work to be done. Finally, once the other terrain I'm working on is finished and I acknowledge what to do on Haditha to make the terrain look good again, I'll be back on the project. Haditha will feature the new, amazing OPX buildings, but I won't release anything until Fallujah (by the highly skilled RebelMan) gets released. Why? Because I consider that terrain to be heir of Opteryx's deceased (hopefully not) Al Kut project due to the same blood type (buildings), and therefore I'm not comfortable with releasing stuff with those magnificent buildings in it before the righteous son is born... If that makes sense. It won't happen due to the lighting problems though. As I said before, the development will be slow, but the project is not cancelled.
