  1. Yeah it's important distinction. It says consider defragging your HDD (hard drive).That would classify in spinners not SSDs probably. So I read this you may have to defrag your hard drive.Nowhere mentions Solid state drives ; )

    Arma missions on a grand scale?

    I can only recommend invade&annex on ahoy servers.60 players and combined arms game.Tanks, aircrafts, helicopter everything you desire is there.It doesn't require any mods (like alive).And it's public. It's coop however (players vs AI)

    Suddenly Low Fps After Coming Back To Arma

    We pretty much have to wait a bit for modders to update to new patch changes because update introduces new coding features for more functionality/better performance.

    Soldier protection (dev branch)

    As with fatigue iteration of personal protection is on the way as did sitrep 0114 announced. I think that feedback ticket number 0005377 summs it up quite well. If they manage to make vests simulate body armor, meaning that bullet hitting armor insert will save wearer life while hitting unprotected areas would result in death or in bleeding. Then it comes to a subbject interesting to me with a name of brute force trauma.when bullet hits insert there is tremendius force that can break people bones and cause nasty skin muscle deformation. That leads to a moments when you hit someone and instead of him actually becoming combat innefective for at least short amount of time, it results in twitch collide reaction.This leads to a twitch bug when body goes in ragdol state and it looks ugly and weird.

    Fatigue Feedback (dev branch)

    according to sitrep 00114 (arma3/news/sitrep) there is incoming iteration of fatigue system.We should discuss strong points and weakpoints of current system and why and how to improve it. I agree that fatigue recovery is way too quick and leave room for improvement. I also remember older poster mentioning anaerobic and aerobic(?) muscles. There is one thing that I'm missing from old ace for arma2 - blinking eyes ang going unconscius if you pushed yourself too hard.Including stumble animation effected and passing out resulted in thinking twice on how much are you gonna carry.
  6. I noticed that animation of switching to handgun has hand reaching for a handgun handle offseted too much forward.

  8. I never advocated to keep action menu in a first place - I remember I linked dsy. video of action menu problems when it came out to a forum threads to show it more people.But I do understand troubles of tackling problems that are in engine from it's first days.

    AI Discussion (dev branch)

    i will go with assumption that it is. Comparing with life events I would speculate that lobbing 40mm grenades would do more harm then good for the attacker which has lighter armored vehicle (anything but slammer, t-100 and Kuma) and would result in attacker's death due to alerting enemy tank
  10. it takes time in same manner you have to wait in line for surgery not because of rocket science but of line and different priority cases.
  11. I'm glad to see this fixed.does it mean that even zooming out far doesn't result in black flickering patch?As always I'm curious how they fixed it.Nothing is on the changelogs.Maybe new technology connected with expansion.
  12. The biggest problem with performance/optimization is that it requires low level changes. And I mean fixing legacy engine bottlenecks which would bring big performance gains and big optimization changes.The problem is that it's unlikely to do that while people need working game.Why wouldn't game work while doing low level changes? Think completely rebuilding house foundation.Walls would likely collapse, become unstable during the process.In game terms it would mean that it would have lots of bugs, game crashes.It would take long time too to develop and fix engine problems from programmers side. That is why this things are done in pre production/production of new game (arma 4) so they aren't obstructed by need of working game (since players aren't playing their build) core mechanics, controls, clunky often falls into lower engine category again.Not all of them but some.Since you haven't been specific I can't say what can and what can't be likely fixed.As the above when trying to fix let's say actions menu they would have to figure out if is doable in time frame vs good enough outcome?What are the blockers?How long would it take to fix them?The problem is that things are interconnected.We have to pay attention that it doesn't break AI functions, that it has legacy so it doesn't break major system that modders may use often, then you may have action menu is tied to certain simulation that needs fixing first... And at the end it falls down to priorities - is it worth it in comparison with time/manpower that we can spend on something else?

    New terrain reveal - Tanoa

    Actually the trailer that you have saw was area where artists/modelers, focused under time pressure because they didn't intend to attend pcgamer conference but when they saw opportunity they jumped on it. Source: http://dev.arma3.com/post/sitrep-00111
  14. Can you be so kind and mention where did you learn that?
