    ArmA 3 terrain Size in to the Future

    The ability exists to have huge maps the top limit at the moment, correct me if im wrong, is 500km x 500km (250,000km2) but populating it would be a near impossible feat, mostly due to the tools we have.

    ArmA 3 terrain Size in to the Future

    Well I have to inform you that I know for a fact that if you create a terrain with the sizes of 500km x 500km (250,000km2) then you can not, even in VBS2, a product I have been developing content for various nations in for a long while, create a high level of fidelity that is required by the customers of the ArmA series, You can in certain areas of that vast, useless terrain create high fidelity environments that are good for certain purposes, but you will not be able to create a terrain area that is a quarter of a million km2 to the level of Altis, Stratis, Chernarus etc etc. Please by all means prove me wrong. Im assuming your RL experience in making a 250,000km2 high fidelity game like terrain area won't help you there. http://cdn.memegenerator.net/instances/400x/35656609.jpg
  3. VBS does support it!

    ArmA 3 terrain Size in to the Future

    Just because the engine can support a terrain of 500km x 500km it doesnt mean that you can craft it with a high level of fidelity required for the purpose of a game. AFAIK: The object limit at the moment is somewhere around 4,000,000. Also, bigger isn't better, ask my mrs! :)

    BI games for PS4?

    I personally hope ArmA 3 stays PC exclusive! Such a bespoke engine can only be fully utilized on a PC!! Although the PS4 does look nice :D

    Putting Stratis into perspective on size.

    They have the technology already, its called terrain paging. Google it :)

    Organized Alpha Coop

    A great idea and I am sure it will come in handy!

    Altis and Stratis

    I remember for ArmA you integrated Rhamadi and Sahrani into one terrain? I may be wrong?

  17. Go over straits with a tooth comb
  18. Would be interesting to see if a Pre-Load is available as it would lighten the stress on the 05/03/2013.
  19. Another fix I noticed was if you request to reset your password.
