  1. Agreed. Even if gore doesn't make it in, the body armor simulation is a must-have.

    JSRS3: DragonFyre

    Great stuff! The distant explosions and vehicles sounds are especially amazing. It seems that sonic cracks are REALLY loud, and they aren't heard from far away. From the combat footage I've watched it seems that even bullets passing 10+meters away are still audible as little "snaps" such as this video I really enjoy your work so far though; can't wait for a new release :)
  3. Apparently uninstalling wasn't cleaning everything up, so after another re-install and configuring I got Buldozer to launch without error :) As for Terrain Builder, which .rpt would have info about it?
  4. I installed the A3tools to try out map-making, and got the P: drive and futuratop.bat working. However, when trying to launch buldozer it ends up throwing this error http://puu.sh/h4lYH/288ee71deb.jpg and then crashes with this http://puu.sh/h4m6J/8ba06e5ece.png . Terrain builder also crashes on startup with the generic windows "terrain builder has stopped working" error. All other tools seem to launch. I've tried re-installing/validating/dev branch and get the same issues regardless. I could use some help here :confused:

    Found a Fix for low FPS!!

    Didn't work for me, after I set everything back, same FPS in Showcase Helicopters as before.
  6. My conditions for this to be acceptable would be as follows. A) The current copy paste vehicle weapons would have to go, finish the content already in before asking us to pay for more. B) The mods would be offered in LITE versions as well, similar to DLC. C) Paid Mods aren't offered in small/frequent packs, keep them full DLC sized and not one every month. D) No huge quality discrepancies.

    Reality Check

    I've been thinking that since the community has such great modelers and texturers, and BI has a lack of them (as evidenced by this thread), why can't Bohemia possibly outsource some work to the community? We could have more statics, vehicles (or maybe even interiors! :D), and all sorts of wonderful things. There are tons of mods adding different factions/new vehicles, so why not put up some standards and let them be submitted to be put inside of the game?
  8. My FPS died too, used to be 40+ FPS on Altis with 4000 view distance...Now if I have more than a couple of (empty) vehicles on the map I get 15-30 FPS :( And lowering my settings helped not at all, I thought they had optimized this game more, but I guess that's going away :<
  9. Maybe not all of the vehicles (such as t-55, Hueys etc) but there are quite a few vehicles from A2 that will probably remain in service for awhile. Ospreys, F35s for sure and maybe some newer Russian stuff like the T-90 could have been sold to CSAT. Apparently they sold CSAT some T-100s and Ka-60s, so why not some slightly older stuff?
  10. Would be alot better, however I doubt it will happen any time soon.
  11. Wow... been playing arma for 2 years and NEVER knew that :P
  12. Don't know if anyone else has mentioned this already, but while flying around in the MH-9 in Altis I decided to land on a gas station roof, and I got a message in the bottom corner that said "refueling" and my fuel was suddenly full. I'm not using any mods, and no scripts in the mission.
  13. Sad, but increasingly evident.

    Altis: Criticism and Suggestions

    I was sad as well Don't make a really cool building, just to then say "NONE SHALL PASS!" D:

    Altis: Criticism and Suggestions

    First of all, I'd like to say it is my favorite island so far just because of the variety all around it :D One of my few criticisms would be that a few larger buildings like the hospital don't have enterable second and third floors. I understand you can't model every single room, but I would like to see maybe a few hallways and a some rooms upstairs. Another might be that some of the vacant buildings are completely empty, one would think there might be some garbage or furniture left behind.
  16. For some reason after changing settings I can't change my textures back to ultra anymore :( Is that a new bug or am I missing something? I have plenty of RAM free :D
  17. Tried on a machine with ArmA 3 installed on a HyperX 240 GB SSD, with a i7 3770k (has 4 virtual cores, 4 physical) 8GB Patriot Viper RAM, and an msi 560ti 1GB. I put every setting including viewdistance and AA on max, got 18-21 FPS average on Showcase: Helicopters. Then I did all of the launch commands and set my affinity to the last 4, and then 6 cores. Each time FPS was between 16-22 FPS. In other words, no improvement. You can't magically make a game that isn't optimized for multi core magically change its ways by setting affinity :P

    Stealth ATV's

    That reminds me, WE DON'T HAVE BICYCLES IN A3 :O

    ArmA Multiplayer and humans

    That is the biggest problem with ArmA IMO, more so than any bugs or missing features. It's incredibly difficult to just hop in and play a game, and get a somewhat fun and engaging experience. I wish they had a few missions out of the box that behaved like BF2PR's AAS or Insurgency modes. Those missions really encourage teamwork (most of the time) and provide a DECENT tactical experience (compared to public ArmA servers)
  20. I really like the idea, something about leaning/stance adjust always felt off to me and I think this was the problem.

    BIS, I love you

    IMO it still feels very ropey, and I thought some of the stuff in right now was placeholder when in fact it will be in release :P OP is quite right :P

    Forward visibility on the Ghosthawk

    A similar thing I noticed was the CH-49 has two monitors that are just blank. I don't see why those can't be used to put in a down facing PIP camera :P
  23. Now if only we could have weapon sounds/EAX on the level of BF2 PR, the soundscape would surpass any game to date :P

    Arma 3 - Sneak Preview Livestream

    Are the in-game "Slammers" equivalant to a mk3 o mk4 Merkava?
  25. Rolling

    Arma starting to disappoint

    I have to agree with OP, as many others have said the factions seem like clones of one another. Also BIS keep pulling that "quality over quantity" stuff when the content we are getting isn't really all that high quality. I'm not talking about models and textures here, I'm talking about the very poor simulation of vehicles. The weapon systems on all of the vehicles still use TAB lock crap, and rival factions from different hemispheres are using the exact same grenade launchers, 50 cals, and "DAGR" missles. Not to mention magical radar on the APCs, and the fact that all of the stealth helicopters don't have stealth properly represented. This isn't a sim anymore, as they stated it is a "Military Sandbox". And that really shows, because they haven't improved the simulation aspect of it very much at all. I forgot to complain about sniper rifles wind not affecting ballistics. :P /rant
