    Tonal Island for Arma 3

    It's hard to look at it now and see how innovative it was at the time. Complete new factions, new islands, full history, missions on top of missions, music, voice files, etc. at the time it was a giant task, now it would almost be impossible. My fav was the Redux TSF zombie killing mission. Damn that was fun.

    Tonal Island for Arma 3

    I'm so getting ARMA 3 now :) I can't wait to see this happen. If you need any help let me know ;)

    Bush's "Strange New Worlds"

    Wow, these are all simply stunning and it's nice to see some creativity. Looking forward to finally getting a new PC after 7 years so I can take a look at these in a couple of weeks. Well done.

    Arma: Cold War Assault

    Nice release :) I haven't played OFP in ages but with this release I quickly DL'd the old Tonal remake, installed and played a while. So much fun! So many memories :)

    Rooster Teeth new series Rage Quit

    I don't get it either. What is funny about watching some idiot play a game poorly while he complains about it loudly? How is that funny at all? I guess I don't "get it" for the same reason I don't "get" MTV anymore, or youtube comments, or Justin Beeber, or Lady Gaga or hipster bands. I'm just too old :j:

    Rooster Teeth new series Rage Quit

    I can't believe I wasted a couple minutes of my life watching part of that. People like that guy really make me lose hope for society. I guess I'm pretty lucky that I've yet to see or meet people that act like this idiot offline, but I know they're out there. Thank god they just stay at home and post on Youtube.
  7. Yeah it will be interesting to see what comes out of that. A lot of companies at IITSEC want a piece of that pie but creating a "jack of all trades" sim is not as easy as all those upper management people think. "We'll just make a replacement for VBS2. It shouldn't be too hard right? You could have that in 6 months right? OH and we want it to run wirelessly, be accessible by any machine on a DOD network and work via cloud computing." I heard that one at least once a year for the last several years, and when they see/hear what it would actually take to do it they look at you like you just told them aliens landed outside :p So either way it should be neat to see what happens :)
  8. Yeah, it will suck but Orlando has a lot of opportunities in the sim market. Now if I had just been a scripter all these years instead of doing addons/terrains I'd be golden :) More than a few jobs out there for VBS2 scripting.
  9. I know all about those deadlines and how they work, I'll be unemployed by Feb because of them, so trust me I know how they can be flexible or tight as a drum. My point was, it's interesting to me that they like change for the sake of change. I'm also 100% positive that there are also a lot of politics and back scratching involved with this.
  10. I gotta laugh when I read articles like this one http://tsjonline.com/story.php?F=4995898 So by 2014 the Army wants to replace VBS2 with something that does everything VBS2 can do AS WELL AS a laundry list of features. Lol, this should be interesting to see who promises what and what is actually delivered. Another funny thing is that I know people working on contracts that will go out a few more years converting years and years of old simulator content to VBS2 usable content. So by the time it's all done it will be obsolete. Lots of companies are JUST getting into VBS2. Lol, I'm really glad I'm hopefully getting out of mil contracting. All you can do is laugh :)

    The Unsung MOD (Vietnam War)

    Holy crap I think I may need to actually buy ARMA2 just to play this mod. Looking pretty sweet.

    Dragon Rising has been released

    I've been playing the PC version and I'm getting shot right and left... I'm not playing on the easy setting, but not hardcore or whatever it's called in this game either. I'm only at mission 3 but so far it runs like a dream for me and I have yet to see anything that makes me dislike the game other than no lean and drab PP. I have to turn ARMA and ARMAII down so much to play that OFPDR looks much better by comparison. I'm enjoying it enough to make a post anyway. It's not better by any means but at least it's something new and I can run it well with 0 work and I don't do MP so this game isn't horrible for me atm.

    Dragon Rising has been released

    I'll bet it's just a ploy to help with immediate sales and buzz and then down the line just let it die off instead of actually releasing any tools/plugins/etc.

    Dragon Rising has been released

    Borrowed a copy to try it out on the PC. Runs really well at least. LOVE the interface and overall front end production values... really, really well designed at least with the style, typography and graphics. In-game... just played one mission and it runs really well on higher settings at least for my now lower end system. Feels similar to GRAW but not as "tight". I'm enjoying it at least "as is" and looking at it in a vacuum. Again, at least I can play it straight away with 0 need to adjust anything. Nothing. Just install and play. Biases aside, it'll be a fun one time playthough to kill some time which is all COD4/GRAW2/etc was for me as well and I enjoyed that diversion a lot. OFPDR isn't great and I'll hold off judgement til I play it through, but I don't see it as being nearly as bad as some are suggesting, but then again I see it as just a shooter game to kill a few hours with, not something that will keep me occupied for years on end. With that in mind I think I can enjoy playing it a few hours. LOL at the vid showing the LOD popping. That's a good engine stress test but not a good indication of how gameplay is. At least it forces you to design missions with good FPS in mind.

    FP : DR - News & Discussion

    Actually I can't wait to rent this game for the 360. I don't have to mess with settings, don't have to tweak my machine and the game for hours on end to try and make it run well on my somewhat crappy machine. Nowadays all I want to do is play. I've been tweaking games and my machines since the early 90s and I'm done with it. Either it runs well or not. ARMA2 won't run for me so I'll try this one and see. If I like the rental I'll buy the PC version and I've been a BI fan quite a while. It's like renting a car on vacation.
