    Arma Reforger - Mission Editor

    yeah its still complicated, but once the setup is done then editing is a lot quicker. I dont know who made that tutorial though but they did a good job that even someone as simple as i can follow.

    Arma Reforger - Mission Editor

    Alive in reforged would absolutely be the bomb. edit - not sure if its been shared yet, if anyone is looking for one, heres a pretty easy to follow tutorial on modding reforger that I found that made understanding the modules etc a buit easier. https://github.com/Herbiie/ArmAReforgerMissionMakingGuide/wiki/

    Arma Reforger/Arma4 VR Support

    personally i have no interest in VR at the stage it is right now. Maybe when it gets more sophisticated in ten years or so but even beyond the perfomance needed - theres the warping around to get places on foot isnt a great idea. the shooting experience may be for sure though. But then its like a fairground shooting range more than anything.

    AI Infantry MG low rate of fire.

    AFAIR it's an old engine limitation - which is also why the little bird helicopters fire double bullets damage each shot but at half the rpm. i heard the new enfusion engine has moved beyond this problem - but i have no evidence or substantiation for it.

    [Poll] ArmA Reforger / Arm4

    i bought 2 copies - because it reminds me of what arma originally used to be (OFP) and that was a highwater mark in demanding uncompromising combat for the time - but with so many engine improvements that had been requested for years and years. Im really NOT fond of the MP focus but i hope modding/BIS can sort that out so i can spend time enjoying it SP and Co-op until arma 4 comes out.

    Arma Reforger - Mission Editor

    yes, if i remember correclty, when you place down the player object (by right clikcing on the ground where you want player to be) then it says hold y to play. Not ideal but doable right now.

    New informations or announcement soon?

    when i read that reforger feels arcade - i feel very sad. Arma legacy is pushing the simulation and realism, making it arcade would mean that its lost its way. That would be bad for the brand legacy. Anyway - i await more feedback and reviews before buying this edit - i bought it and it is pretty damn good in fact. There are a few things that come across as arcade immediately like the fast movement speed and ability to fire full auto with very little recoil (ak tested only so far and the recoil system is very outdated compared to the more accurate way some newer game portray it with more snap and speed), plus the colours seem over bright/saturated soemhow. But there are sooo many great things here. such an evolution! And it uses cold war assets and no made up futuristic technology. Makes the experience so much more visceral and immediate. Really nice job BIS. Keep on pushing the simulation angle that made arma amazing to new extremes here and itll be absolutley special.

    this is interesting news. I hope there will be co-op vs Ai missions. I dont care at all for any kind of pvp, and imo co-op and sp is what arma3 great.

    ARMA still alive?

    I played a lot of arma3. was one of my favourite games. Even now it seems the community is going online in some respects but the BIS the company itself seems to have lost heart with what made arma 3 great and have abandoned active development and just gone into maintenance mode. And they now simply use commodisised community content to try generate incremental revenue/news. Such a pity imo, especially as now the appetite for more milsim games and challenges looks like to be bigger money generater than before, but i did enjoy the game for a good long time.
  12. Want to use your favorite weapon mods in arma 3 official campaigns and missions? this mod lets you do that. A weapon replacement mod that automatically replaces default Arma weapons with any weapon mods you have installed - All The Weapons - for example. East soldiers automatically get weapons like AKs and RPK and SVD, West get m4 and m16 and m249 and more. Independents G3 and FAL and Aks of course. It all depends on which weapon addons you have running for arma 3. if you have multiple weapon mods or similar this mod will load one from them at random based on the units side and class. So snipers get sniper/marksmen rifles, Machinegunners get machineguns, etc. The addon will check every newly spawned unit and assign them a random rifle load out based on their side. tested and working with HLC (Toadies), RHS, SMA, RH, EricJ's work, CUPS, Massi's and almost all other weapon addons. Will be updated as needed if new packs come out. ------ . All The Weapons is an AddOn that replaces defualt arma 3 weapon with those from 3-rd party weapon addons to most missions including Official ARMA 3 missions. And it does this automatically. East soldiers get weapons like AKs and RPK and SVD, West get m4 and m16 and m249 and more. Independents G3 and FAL. It all depends on which weapon addons you have downloaded and activated for your arma 3. To prevent breaking survival type missions, if a character spawns without a weapon this script will not run for that character. This is intentional. If weapons from your favorite addon pack are not showing up, please let me know here and I'll add them. IMPORTANT. please. Test it out in multiplayer. NOTE ALL PLAYERS MUST HAVE THE SAME MODS. Expect occasional updates to add weapon names of addons not yet incorporated but right now over 90% of all existing and new weapon addons should automatically work fine as long as the mod authors name their weapons conventionally (ie XXXX_m16) the important bit is the _m16 small demo video - > https://youtu.be/0_7eSQdQbH0 Feedback welcome. New version out. updated to solve rare error of accessories not defined. Version A. All weapons change automatically version is here > https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=434595503 Version B.

    All The Weapons

    Hi, the aimfix mod is on steam. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=619834340 cant remember what was needing to be updated, it was a long break before getting back into arma3.
  14. Infantry movement in arma3 is beyond Olympic athlete speeds. It is very sped up. Especially when crouch running. This is no doubt done to make traversing the huge terrain less slow and tedious. This mod simply tries to remedy that. Now using cover and transport is much more important than running everywhere at full speed like a blue-arsed fly. Being caught in a bad position needs more than just a quick sprint to safety. And losing your transport in the middle of nowhere is a real inconvenience. Also important to me was making some difference in speed between crouched and standing movement. Have also added an in-house check to make you slow down a little more indoors to stop hurtling at full speed in a space where we naturally adjust our speed to our confines. There might be a second delay for this to kick in depending on how many units are on the map. This is to try and not impact performance and will be adjusted later on if needed. Also added a very simply weight system where the heavier you are the (slightly) slower you run. Now packing light has real benefits. Most people wont like this and will prefer the arcade fast paced run speed. This is for the few that can appreciate the difference a more human-limited speed brings. Bug - while going prone the actual dropping down animation is slowed down as well. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1544134682 only needed on server if running a server. Otherwise run it on your own pc for your own missions.

    tws move speed mod

    the slowed down movement is an side effect of the animation system BIS have chosen. But the pace feels natural to me as opposed to the overly fast pace that arma3 uses, but thanks for the feedback. I'd like to be able to isolate the sprint speed for more changes but no idea how to tell when the player is sprinting or not.
  16. I read that arma4 is at the very least years away and hasnt really even been begun development on. which sucks as arma3 is showing its age. especially when it comes to optimizations. Which is very different for the new dayz engine where i get 100+ fps most of the time with settings turned up reasonably. Looks and runs pretty beautifully. Also has support for more animations stuff and interactions and better location damage. with the new mod tools coming to dayz (many of which are arma3 tools with tweaks > https://forums.dayz.com/topic/238731-a-first-look-at-dayz-modding/?tab=comments#comment-2390992) it would be something to have the great arma3 mods in that engine. even maybe the old arma2 campaign redone in the new engine on chenaraus. would breath a new life into the amazing arma universe. So question is, any news of the devs planning to make this porting possible? Arma3 on a new engine would certainly tide us over nicely until arma 4 comes out at its own leisurely pace.
  17. this hit home a lot. I dont see any chance of buying any other titles from BIS that aren't arma. But BIS seems to have grown tired of it in favor of newer priorities and are really abandoning arma until maybe later with nothing but stop gap measures.

    tws move speed mod

    added levels of fitness for mission editors to be able to set different physical conditioning speed levels for elite units versus normal units. So elite units like SF move faster without hitting arcade levels again. in mission editor put the following in units init field: this setvariable ["_tws_customFitnessLevel",2,true]; Levels are from 0 (no change) to 3 (elite level fitness speed). You can use 99 and 666 for debugging to check that speed change is working for your units. also note that swimming is a little faster than default because ironically that is the one thing they got way too slow. edit - upload went through so it should work fine now.
  21. twisted

    tws move speed mod

    yes that would be quite easy to do. Simply change the speed modifier according to rank. This is a super simple script so modding it is easy. I'll do it sometime in the next day or so. edit - actually rank wouldn't be good. I'll come up with another option that lets you as a mission maker specify fitness level for units while still keeping it at non-arcade speed levels.

    a little jump would be ok. More of a step with inertia really. but clambering would be great.

    Smoother Animations v4

    this is intersting! If arma3 needs anything it's a revamp of the movement system. Especially if arma4 isnt here for a couple more years. Smoother controls and maybe not so sped up and not so arcade either.. Downloading now to try it out.

    Weapon Resting & Deployment Feedback

    wow, after a long time away I am so impressed to see the devs have looked at weapon resting and made it better than before. :) of course, a few points. 1. if you can go around in circles prone while bipod is deployed then it needs to be MUCH slower as it is actually really a clunky thing to do. 2. Repositioning the bipod while turning prone should also ideally reset the bipod turn angle to now be in the new angle. So you have maybe 30-45 degrees supported position, then just after the rifle tilts to move the bipod goes through a settling and then again provides a 30-45 degree of support. 3. if bipod feet are above the ground by a certain heights (within reason due to old engine) then the bipod advantages should be removed. So the feet are still out but no benefit comes of it. 4. be nice if a fix can be found for the biggest issue i have with bipods, that deploying them can actually take over your rifle and move your point of aim in game. Meaning that you no longer are even pointing at the thing you wished to deploy the bipod in order to try and increase your chances of hitting. happens on walls. overall though, great to see this being worked on.
  25. Scenario: Your team was on a sabotage mission, but your helicopters were shot down. Now gather what's left of team 1 and try and find team 2's helicopter and any survivors. HQ has marked know helicopter locations that you can steal to exfiltrate Stratis. Weapons and ammo are at a premium when you start, so scavenge. Start_pos changes. Every mission plays quite differently while still having a basic story to guide you. AI skill levels are a little lower so they arent SOB sharp-eyed terminators with rifles. will still kick your butt though. Dependancies... CBA_A3 required. [link = http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=18767 ] TPW_Fall and TPW_suppression highly recommended Virtual Ammobox System (VAS) by Tonic included so you can pick any weapon you want when you clear a big opfor base Bring all your favourite wepaon packs. This mod finds and uses any addon rifles/mgs you have at random. not MP/COOP compatible. That's next stage. Coming soon. download the mission from steam here. Hope that works. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=170017675 or try... https://mega.co.nz/#!tA0QDDBD!AVozqHc5OjX6AGlVuTHmGXSRMqEaPxLc-2PaVK4Jbts Armaholic mirror: - Heli Crash [bETA] EDIT - links added armaholic. thanks!
