    Second Wind multiplayer sector control servers.

    Fairplay in arma? Some say it's a myth. While they are partially right, the mod does it's job well to mitigate bad design. One of the recent updates, among other features, brings: Disabled ability to use custom oversized FOV (Field of View) by injecting it into profile settings.

    Managed to greatly improve shark behaviour, movement and positioning. Enjoy!
  4. Greetings. I'd like to introduce Second Wind gamemod to multiplayer Arma community. The ongoing action is set in a post-apocalyptic outbreak situation where remaining survivors have split into a few rival factions, fighting for objectives and what's left of remaining supplies. Imagine Stronghold sector control as a KOTH-like capturing system, but persistent and actually bringing value to those who hold control over strategic objectives in an open world. That, coupled with RPG character leveling and built-in faction communication provides a great way for anyone to start playing without need to read long guides and videos, be it a new player or old veteran. You also don't need a big pack of mods to start as the mod has all features built-in with custom user-friendly interface. Only Second Wind is required in order to start playing Servers: Sunken Altis: Sunken Altis is a custom heavily modified Altis terrain which, among everything else introduced underwater gameplay, with underwater objects towing, diving available for all characters without frogsuit need, and sharks. Sunken Altis Screenshots Server name: [EU#1] Second Wind Address: Port: 2402 Livonia server has been shut down recently as it will be replaced by Katya terrain by Blud when it comes out.

    Update. - Stronghold spawn system implementation: Ability to choose respawn area nearby captured strongholds (respawn area images will be updated later) - Bikes collision fix. - Legion system fixed. - Dynamic loot system implemented. - Updated rainy weather conditions. - Sunken Altis Water columns support (ability to drink from). - Updated some houses visuals. Livonia server is shut down and will be replaced by Katya terrain by Blud when it comes out. I'd suggest BI to figure out their way of handling dlcs, hosting dlc terrains is a suicide for server population. Or hire me, as, honestly speaking, I could teach how to sell your own content.

    Second Wind Code is now available on Github. Server side code will be released shortly later on. In case someone wants to go for sandbox multiplayer mod, it works quite well now and can be launched at any terrain. Personally I'm looking forward for Katya terrain as the only appropriate one I'd like to launch non-dlc server to keep action going. There is a lot of quite interesting solutions/workarounds which have never been tried elsewhere. For example: - Dynamic shadows which draw at distance once the player zooms in using scope or any other optics. Besides drawing shadows it also fixes objects not rendering right at distance when using scope so that model looks bad and 2D. (optional, commented out by default). - Damage handler workaround which solves players recieving damage and dying when stuck in textures in buildings and objects. - Dynamic weather which tries it's best to synchronize between players even taking into account delayed cloud density synchronization in multiplayer. Quote on my conclusion after some extensive work making various AI creatures work on a dedicated server environment in Arma3: It's close to mpossible to make great fine-tuned working PVE AI and creatures in arma on a dedicated server environment. The amount of network limitations is just over the top. My personal main goal was to learn when I started working on it, which was achieved. As for the vision of merging PVP content with PVE in a fully standalone multiplayer sandbox game - simply put, it cannot be achieved in Arma. You can try to go for various workarounds, but the limitations will always hold you, wasting precious time. This was a year-long extensive work with a lot of issues fixed and features implemented. So I'll be slowly switching focus to other projects and engines and open for collaboration with experienced people in order to keep updates going at the same speed. Upcoming updates will focus on PVP gameplay.
