    Thank you for your continued work and so amazing update! Everything looks very nice. New uniforms, weapons, vehicles are just outstanding. But most of all, I like the different versions of static Mg42. Three position at MG, fantastic idea. Defense of bunkers, trenches, firing over sandbags, windows in buildings ... is now a piece of cake. So, at this moment, only my imagination limits me :satisfied:
    If I only could suggest one thing. Dear team, could you consider to use this insane ROF which is actually in handheld MG42, also in these static MG42? I mean situations when AI firing (ROF for player is perfect). I know, I'm crazy about this point, but for me, this is the only thing which missing to the perfection.

     

    On my to do list ;)

  2. Greetings and good evening community, some of you have been waiting for this.

    A year has passed since our first public release. Our team - despite being small in numbers - pushed on to produce new assets and polish and fix up old ones (Arma 2 / Hell in The Pacific). Hereby we present you the 4th Release of Faces of War:

     

    Highlights:

    • New vehicles: Sdf. Kfz. 222, 250, 251; Panther; Cromwell; Universal Carrier Carrier; Kübelwagen
    • New terrain: Henderson Field (Guadalcanal); Kokoda Track (Papua);
    • New infantry units: Merill's Marauders; U.S. Airborne troops; South East Asia Command; additional uniforms and accessories
    • New weapons: Gewehr 43; MG 34; static MG 42 and M1919 variants; new grenade types for Ger. and U.K. sides

    We are aware that some of the contents are not really up to A3 standard (lvta2, hago, gmc just to name a few), but we've decided to include those for gameplay reasons and we hope to improve the quality of those models in the future. This release build has been tested intensively by our testers and we're really grateful for their help, but we've added many things so aspect some bugs! In this case, report them to us here or on our discord!

     

    Our sound designer had some problems with his PC and he could not include all the sounds he wanted for this release sadly. Especially most of the vehicles are using A3 vanilla sounds for the moment, but we hope that Miska can recover quickly and get back to modding to gift us all his amazing sounds!

     

    We would like to thank the Unsung Team and especially Eggbeast for sharing with us their zf41 scope; Toadie for granting us the use his beatiful springfield; Jaki that donated us a very good pack of model templates that has been very useful to speed up the work; Spycer42 for donating the models of the Bren Carrer, Cromwell, Kubelwagen, panther and Sd.Kfz. 234/1 that have been used and reworked by Lodu to fit Arma 3.

     

    We're still looking for talented modellers to help us finishing our new maps creating beautiful props! If you are interested feel free to send me a PM!

    Idk if i miss it, but I haven't seen someone mentioning this:

     

    there seems to be a bug on the british para webbing (the one that has bandoliers on it), that it can carry only 6 enfield clips, which is less than the standard webbings which can carry 10

     

    Confirmed! It will be fixed in the next release! Thank you for the report!

  4. Hello everyone!
    We are all slowly returning from our respective summer breaks, currently we are focusing on the last few tasks in preparation for the highly anticipated IV release.
    The coming update is going to be a rarther big one and it’s taking a conciderable amount of time, but we are confident it will be well worth the wait. ;)
    Therefore I would like to give you a little update on some of the backstage work we’ve been doing!

     

    In the last few months we have been focusing on three main areas:

    1. Porting old assets.
    2. Creating completely new vehicles.
    3. Developing new terrains.

    While the work of porting some of the older HIP assets has been completed we are well aware that some of them are not really up to ArmA III standards and would need a graphical update,but we’ve decided to release some of them for two primary reasons:

    1. They could potentially be important for gameplay purposes.
    2. We felt that all the hard work of the HIP developers should not be wasted nor left behind.

    In short you can expect some new tanks and trucks to play with. ;)

     

    While we were porting the old assets Lodu was hard at work on the creation of some new models, focusing especially on german recon vehicles.
    I won’t reveal every single model in the next update but I would like to show you something:

    The first recon vehicle is the venerable Sd.Kfz 222, it mounts a 20mm cannon and a mg34.

    One of the features we are most proud of, you will be able to choose diffent camouflage patterns and even the ability to add some camouflage on it!

    BF6285E3ED6FE08E6F6F0492D8E73CB3478C7A2C

     

    The second vehicle is the Sd.Kfz 234/1. While It mounts the “same” turret of the Sd.kfz 222 and as the 222 you will be able to choose different camos!

    E7C5918CB969E199BE647B7D4B6D9986812057D4

    We will probably add some variant of those new vehicles in the future, like the famous “Puma” that mounts a 75mm gun.
    There are few more in the making but I’m afraid you will need to wait a little bit longer... :)

     

    The good news is, we are FAR from finished! We are also working on two brand new terrains as we’ve already announced in the past. The new Pegasus map will require much more time because we decided to create some unique assets for it such as the famous Pegasus bridge, Horsa bridge and some new French houses and farms!
    We also have plans for a European vegetation pack that will include the famous bocage of Normandy.
    While the project is rather ambitious, We are determinated to accomplish it!

    While the development of the assets for the Pegasus map continues, CypeRevenge has been really busy on finishing our second terrain that will focused on the Pacific theater. More specifically the Handerson Airfield area.
    You will be able to fight for your chosen side in the dense jungles of Guadalcanal, Scroll up to see some screenshots! ;)

     

    As always we don’t have any set date for the next release, the amount of work required is enormous but you should be able to play with the new toys soon!
