    what do you want hosted?

    Well most people will port their own/or others existing game modes I'd assume What do you have in mind? GM and Arma discord, or even reddit, may work better to rally some people to a specific project.
  5. We have people again and again asking for a WW2 Survival/Exile/RP server. Your project seems very well developed and still actively maintained. This is why I was asking. 🙂
  6. dont get me wrong. your separate mod download is handy. just saying for those with limited internet, but already having some of the mods, the workshop would give a good overview what one is still missing
  7. Already familiar with Iron Front LITE, jump directly to what's new below. Want to contribute, go straight to how to participate.

In addition this version allows you to: Mod Iron Front itself Extend it with your own mods Combine it with community made mods Play in the most recent Real Virtuality engine In an alive and vivid gaming and modding community # Media Gallery Images by Fabio Chavez and Lennard. . More: Top rated videos on steam Top rated artwork on steam Top rated screenshots on steam Most views on youtube Most relevant on youtube # What is the LITE version Exactly the same selection of assets and features as in the FULL version. Free version with lower quality textures and sounds. SP missions and campaigns are not available. Do note that it is NO LONGER MP compatible to the converted FULL version at all! Read the full statement on discontinued support for the IFA conversion (IFA3 FULL). . # What is different to previous releases Reduced to a single modfolder for simple install and use. Available on Steam workshop for simple install and automated updating. Bumped textures from 128x128 to decent looking 512x512 resolution (2048x2048 in FULL version). Native TFAR and ACRE support for radios available. Largely restructured mod for smaller updates. Improved sounds for some assets (more to come). Winter reskins of most assets. Performance optimization for all infantry, plane, tank and weapon models. Additional improvements, fixes, tweaks, better A3 support. All units/weapons/vehicles can be reskinned. Dropped the scripted damage system for tanks using the new A3 system. Desert reskins of many assets. # Why is it called Preview version This version contains still some issues we are aware of or some we are not aware of. :) However we want to provide people finally with an easy-to-use, hassle free, up-to-date and decent quality LITE version to be able to enjoy WW2 in Arma 3. . In addition we mainly more feedback on the scripted features - especially in MP environment. Known issues: Visual artifacts with some old backpacks. Sound volume off for a few remaining vehicles and infantry weapons. Effects to be improved (ie tank firing FX). PhysX for car and tanks to be improved further. Shadows of various assets to be improved. For more check out our issue tracker. # What are the plans for the future . We will support and continue to improve the new Arma 3 LITE version: Further polish (less bugs and better performance). Add the remaining new A3 technology not yet available. We also want to achieve as good compatibility as feasible with other mods - most importantly the other WW2 mods. To achieve this we are replacing the scripted systems (artillery, towing, etc) with native A3 engine functionality as much as possible. Switch to Old's Real Armor Mod system (and redo a few the remaining missing scripted functionality) Standalone release of the terrains - maybe even the terrain objects separate as well for terrain designers to make use of. Our team is growing and the future sounds good. Native FULL Iron Front for Arma 3 one way or another. # What is there to play Play community made missions/campaigns: Steam workshop: IFA3 tag Steam workshop: Iron Front tag Ported missions, game modes and generic mission systems IFL44 Coop mission pack by sander IF-ALIVE1944 by Chewdog Dust CTI by theOden Grunt - Singleplayer or 40 player coop no respawn by theOden SP/COOP10 Sturm und Drang by Stag SP/COOP14 Fox Green by Stag [sp/coop]IF Lite Mission by PackDJ'Otacon IF Singleplayer Mission Pack by SHJ-Studio Mission repository by Gunter Severloh FT-2: Fight For The Territory - Iron Front Edition SEOW Campaign: Zhitomir, December 1943 (more info) King of the Hill by Sa-Matra and his team Missions subforum in BIF Note: Rename the file extension IFA to PBO to make missions from Iron Front Standalone usable in Arma Create your own missions with the classic editor or the new Eden editor Try all the content in the Arsenal Dynamic missions made with ZEUS Blitzkrieg - Dynamic game mode for SP, COOP and PvP ALiVE Ported missions, game modes and generic mission systems: We will convert existing missions/game modes/generic mission systems on popular request.

  8. thanks! you can also make some semi related only to capture the atmosphere or some non special locations though 🙂 the workshop list would still give you a better idea what mods one already has, even if yous till have to download the rest or the whole package overall it gives you work more exposure to interested people having it on workshop
  9. what about workshop upload with linked required mods? short description, a few more pictures, even a short video would be great

    what do you want hosted?

    my advice would be: port your work to GM DLC ASAP when its possible to have more content available for the new players should be playable alone and with few friends - upscale with higher player numbers
  13. make sure to check out in dev branch: Added: calculatePath script command Added: PathCalculated entity event handler reyhard startCoordinates: Array - format [x,y,z] endCoordinates: Array - format [x,y,z] typeName: string - vehicle class ("helicopter", "plane", "man", "car', "wheeled_APC", "tank", "boat") behavior: string - ("CARELESS", "SAFE", "AWARE", "COMBAT" and "STEALTH") it's exposing AI path planning algorithms imagine sort of fake AI car which is going from A to B this command will return such paths without need to prerecord it somehow and PathCalculated is returning AI path more in the arma discord at: https://discordapp.com/channels/105462288051380224/105466812870713344/568719347523256321

    Arma 3 - Creator DLC Discussion

    You can still have an optional download combined with a LITE approach, or content restrictions like A3 DLCs do.
  15. what is lobbyIdleTimeout ? // 5 seconds for ready, 10 for notReady what does this mean? shouldnt it be the actual values of your samples?
  16. how do you define the locations - array of positions, or markers, using locations as basis?
  17. Sounds quite interesting. Do you have some screenshots from map view, or others to get a better sense of the scale and whats involved? Or some raw gameplay video? Also possible to port to another terrain? Or even WW2 setting?
  18. Looks pretty wicked 👍 What is involved to port to another terrain? What to port to WW2 setting?
  19. @Gunter Severloh unfortunately not yet. we tried some things but no go if anyone has simple demo missions of this behavior - especially on native A3 terrains and not happening with A3 tanks, please share
