    Development Blog & Reveals

    Sweet, can't wait* A nice surprise to see Malden rising again, would be even greater to see Everon as well, but any OFP map is a good one, either way. :D I would reeeeeally would like to see them looking a little bit on injuries and the medical aspect of ArmA. Perhaps for another time :rolleyes: *(even though I don't have a proper computer at the moment <_<)
  2. Had issues logging in, but it worked when I went through my BI profile some how. Either way, it looks good. No big issues, but missing a few features I see. My most missed feature is the button to quickly see BI dev replies. Looking forward to seeing this through.
  3. Rejoice! The day has finally arrived! Can't wait to see this baby at work. Hell yes!

    Russia General

    What Russia needs to do is to cool its aggressive foreign policies which has ever so slightly lead to physical annexing of foreign soil - claimed or not, it has been foreign soil in the post-Soviet era, if not within the late-Soviet era SSR/CP administration borders. I don't mind a 'strong Russia', as you say, but rather as a economically strong and stable entity with growing living standards (like PRC), rather than some pseudo American jingoism.

    Google Earth Pro is now available for free

    Now it works. Thank for the tip! :D Shame it doesn't work. Maybe within the day it will be possible to get a key.

    Russia General

    God almighty. Settle down, America. Blocking such services doesn't help the cause at all. That being said, I'm not pro-Russian government, but these blockades Valve is doing are a bit silly. I don't like Putin, his government or his oligarchs for that matter. I did actually like the guy up until 2003-2004 - cause it seemed like the type of person Russia needed at the time, after what the not-so-sober Jeltsin contributed with - which by then things started to get little worrying.

    Ukraine General

    Hehe, not sure I'd call a Grad a "return fire only" action type of weapon, but fair enough. :rolleyes:

    Ukraine General

    Say, I haven't heard much from the UN about this matter, only that they "condemn" and "worries" about the situation. But is the UN just sitting there, scratching their ass, or are there actual attempts to take action against it only to be vetoed every step of the way?
  9. I do miss our dear Dentist. Possible to get this going through a internet archive maybe? Could OFP.info/ArmedAssault.info or OFPEC.com perhaps have something in their archive? They are after all the oldest living sites I can think of.

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    Awesome, guys! Congratulations on the release. This is something A3 desperately needed :D I've noticed the rotor shaft animation on the Mi-8s are bugged. This is something BI never got around to fix, but I hope you guys can. (Case: https://dev.withsix.com/issues/15286 & https://dev.withsix.com/issues/7275)
  11. This relic of the past. The action menu. It's annoying, it's ancient, it limits ArmA. That and the AI column driving, which was previously mentioned.
  12. I think it's about high time Tonal gets a reboot, yes :) If there's anything I played more on than Nogova in OFP, it has to be Tonal. Although a whole new BAS mod would be mindblowing, Tonal map only is of course most welcomed!
  13. This is really cool, would have loved to see something like this outside the mission editor of any ArmA game. Especially rotating markers and having a quickbar for markers. :)

    That location wasn't actually too difficult to find. It's easier to see it in Google Earth, but here's the Google Maps version (although not with the correct angle) - https://goo.gl/maps/HXcOh (48°22'13.06" N 39°42'35.54" E)

    So apparently two of the journalists following this convoy, from The Telegraph and The Guardian, witnessed this a few hours ago: Nothing new I suppose, but still..

    Ukraine General

    Someone in command is really thickheaded bombarding targets in the middle of a residential area, aren't they? Rebel held or not. Is someone getting cold feets? I suppose they will be fleeing the country now, leaving the rest to fend for themselves, now that they have resigned.

    How much Arma have you played?

    Not much truthfully. Just a mere 158 hours. A lot of problems with MP at the beginning, me playing - so far - only on casual servers (avoiding all "Wasteland"- & "Altis Life RPG"-ish missions), and with few mods that I enjoy is my excuse for having such a low number. Can't really get myself to enjoy the 2030 theme either to be quite honest. Still, if the right mods shows up one day I think I'll play a bit more. Basically it boils down to mods and me mostly playing MP with mods. WGL, BAS, ECP, FDF, and in the last few ArmA games: ACE. PS: I spend most of my time in the editor if I'm not playing on MP. Did most of the campaigns, but lost interest at the end. Haven't playing much SP missions aside from the campaign.

    Favorite conflict setting poll

    Ditto, and it's for that very reason I love Operation Flashpoint: CWC/Res, World in Conflict and the Wargame-series. I prefer the 80s/early 90s due to the variety of equipment available at the time (good old refined mechanical systems vs. new age electronic systems); a rich Cold War history; a whole lot of "what if's" situations; and large changes in geopolitics, society, and economy due to - but not exclusively - the collapse of the Soviet Union. Though anything in between the 60s till 90s is interesting to me. Not so much the Vietnam-conflict though, games have visited this way too much already.

    RIP Robin Williams

    Damn.. my favorite comedian of my childhood. Shame he had such a difficult time privately. This is indeed a huge loss. :(
  20. Splinter Cell Conviction. After Chaos Theory I really thought they found their tune. I loved it. Sadly Conviction was a disaster, a real disappointment. The gameplay was ok, but everything else really dragged that game down. Specifically the odd story and the way it confusingly was told. I haven't bought a Splinter Cell since then. Oddly enough I feel they usually given up series after a remake/revision version doesn't fall good with the old fans. Probably not true though, but Age of Empires came to mind and kinda Red Alert. Anywho, I'm really glad I didn't Rome 2, that would have been a disaster. I had a feeling it was terrible to be quite honest. Just the look of the first gameplay video they released.

    Or in case you want a more thorough peek on what's going on. In order of date: 1. Orange Revolution (2004, Wiki) 2. 2014 Ukrainian revolution (Wiki) 3. 2014 Crimean crisis (Wiki) 4. 2014 pro-Russian unrest in Ukraine (Wiki)

    While I think Spooky has jumped the gun, we honestly don't know who fired what, but it seems clear that this wasn't an accident due to technical issues with the plane. Someone fucked up.. big time.

    Jesus... :mad: Why the hell was that air corridor open in the first place?!
