  1. Hi all, I've just seen the new announcement for the Western Sahara CDLC from Rotators Collective - https://arma3.com/news/arma-3-creator-dlc-western-sahara-is-coming-soon I figured we should have an unofficial discussion thread. I hope this fleshes out the setting developed by @Lexx's great 'Dunes' mod (https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1731998436), and alluded to in Bohemia's own Tac Ops DLC. It's interesting that we're playing as ION again - do you think we'll see a similar portrayal as in Arma 2 PMC DLC? Just fyi for the devs however - 'Assistance' is spelt incorrectly on the side of this helo - (FIXED)

    RHS: Status Quo

    Very exciting news! Definitely a great development for the Arma community and for the future of Arma! Please see DMs @soul_assassin@PuFu.

    [Poll] ArmA Reforger / Arm4

    I bought it as I wanted to see where BIS are heading and I can honestly say, even as a hardcore singleplayer gamer, I'm not disappointed. I think it's still very early days and there's loads to fix and add, but I'm glad BIS seem to be keeping to the authenticity of the Arma series.

    New informations or announcement soon?

    Initial reactions: The forum needs a Reforger section! The twitch stream was great, the 1980s style was a great touch. Marek needs his beard trimming ๐Ÿ˜› I love the sluggish vehicle engine startup - feels very familiar! ๐Ÿ˜› It's great the vehicles have more weight to them. Oh my god, the building interiors!!! Graphics look great, but I now need to update my computer.... Great to hear Arma4 is confirmed and being worked on. Is the water an indication of something slightly maritime related? The walking animations are a bit stiff/gamey, the character doesn't looked weighed down enough. I already miss the different stanches from Arma 3. The FoV seems a bit harsh - but that might just be me. The holding compass animation was off to my left with the compass held up to begin with, then moved to in front of me. Where's my camo cream??? ๐Ÿ˜›
  7. Looking good! I think separate releases would probably be best. Good to see the AH-99 getting more firepower - I always thought the vanilla version was lacking compared to the Kajman. You should really rename this thread to 'Ex3B's freebies' though ๐Ÿ˜›

    Because everyone is entitled to make their own mods, and who knows, maybe they'll add something that has been overlooked.

    Really looking forward to this @lexx - if it's anything like your previous work it'll be definitely worth getting!

    Arma 4 a look to the future

    I figured it would be something simple like that!

    Arma 4 a look to the future

    Can anyone clarify for me why this old (well August last year...) Arma 2 related anniversary music is named under Reforger? Have I missed something??

    MACV-SOG: Across the Fence

    I'm looking forward to playing this given your other missions!

    Prarie Fire discussion

    Loving it so far! The weapons look great and you can see the effort put into everything. I'm not a huge fan of the bunched up nature of the terrain, but honestly it's not a deal breaker.

    Prarie Fire discussion

    This surprised me too when it was announced. I almost made a thread but decided against - well done! ๐Ÿ˜› I'm also concerned about the MP/SP balance. I'm hoping these campaign missions will be decent enough in length for SP. Reviews so far seem promising though. I didn't realise the terrain was fictional ๐Ÿ˜ž My first thought was - I wonder how they've dealt with performance. I really hope BIS pull something out of the bag if they're hoping Arma 3 is going to be around for a long time, otherwise it's going to handicap these new CDLCs.

    Cold War Rearmed III

    The tail rotor issue is because of Advanced Flight model not being set up for CUP vehicles (as far as I'm aware) - turn it off. Re Rat Hole: agree on wingman dying quickly - I go into autohover as soon as I can visually see the first Vulcans/units, gain height while using optics to target them. It's a bit of a hacky way of completing the mission. I think adjusting the view distance would fix the mission.
  18. Adjust the sensitivity of your twist in the controls. One thing to think about though is removing the keybindings from your keyboard - there's an issue where it halves the input (sensitivity) from your controllers. This means your throttle loses sensitivity which is really crucial for getting into a hover (as shown in Feint's videos).
  19. Try watching this video by Feint: Re: showing where the middle of your throttle is - go to options > game > show gauges. Keep going, using HOTAS is really satisfying once it's set up and I'd never go back to keyboard and mouse.

    I can completely understand why you'd want a break from things for a while. Come back when the time is right ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Keep up the good work SHJ-Studio. Please don't let a tiny minority spoil modding for you.

    Arma 1 & 2

    They're all worth playing for the campaigns/ missions but the interest/quality of each varies. There's loads of mods for each so it's worth having them just to explore, even if A3 is what everyone plays now.
  25. Hi Liberty Bull - enjoyed playing your mission yesterday - very nostalgic! Great to hear you've done some polishing. Just some further ideas if you want them:
