  1. You need one more item - a good watercooler to OC your CPU as close to 5+ GHZ has possible to keep up with mods. ARMA is a pure CPU + RAM Bandwidth / Latency game... You should be good if you can do this. I suggest a 240 size or larger water cooler due all of your cores. Here is a thread about a good watercooler for your cpu: http://www.overclock.net/t/1640479/best-cpu-cooler-i7-8700k-oc
  2. Looks awesome already and so much needed! It would be a great combo to use mod along with Max's upcoming melee weapons set as well!
  3. I was watching this video and noticed the soldiers switch hands depending on their cover position: Right now, all players default to be right handed so their trigger hand is right, and left hand holds the magazine, lower grip or barrel. Can someone swap the gun holding animation depending on cover position so if the player moves to the LEFT side of an object, they swap left hand to trigger and right hand to hold the weapon? In MP play, it is crucial because the exposure of a right handed soldier on the left side of an object is larger than on the right side. Try to cover fire from a building or car, both and left side, and you will understand. I am unsure if an animation mod would work or perhaps a feature request for ARMA 4 then!
  4. Yes he can play with others so long as he understands he: CANNOT use any of the premium guns even though he can see it. Pilot or man the guns of any of the premium helicopters. He can only ride in it as a passenger. Technically he could but he would be splattered with the watermark all over his screen or shown a logo to buy the premium content while he may be holding the premium guns or sitting in a seat not allowed in the helicopters, karts, jets or upcoming tanks DLC. Otherwise, he can still play with others who have access to the DLC gear. The only exception is Apex DLC so he cannot join any servers that is played on Tanoa map from APEX DLC unless he purchased that DLC.
  5. MP - Ravage [COOP - 6] The Escape

    @ kodabar Only 3 of you guys made it? :D Great job!
  6. MP - Ravage [COOP - 6] The Escape

    Sorry I was not around during the actual operations! I was on and off between when everyone was on, then got a call to watch Baby Driver movie. Pretty good... Now I am thinking about how to ARMA-tise that movie into a game mode... If you guys schedule another testing round, please let me know. My comments: I actually loaded a few more mods for immersion testing: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1220544202&searchtext=ace+medical I used this to test attaching chemlights to the player, and gestures as I do not have a working microphone. However, there is an issue with Ravage or another mod where the ACE user and interaction menus don't show up. It works if Ravage is loaded but not actually used in a mission. If a Ravage mission is loaded, the ACE shortcut keys work, but the menus do not come up. So it is hard to try to attach any chemlights to anything. The pointing gestures works via hotkeys. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1138842442&searchtext=compass+hud I love it but should probably not use it as it makes the compass worthless. I was looking for compass without the casing since it blocks the a lot of screen space. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=667953829&searchtext=bloodlust Makes the zombies so sickening dead... https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=832551294&searchtext=shoulder+light This is a good alternative to headlamps. Works fantastic. Even better if you have both or a handheld flashlight like from Hero's Survive or RDS Civilian pack. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=887302721 I also used Feint's paddle mod for boats without fuel... But no need for everything required. It just adds to the immersion if we're stuck on an island without any resources.
  7. @ .kju, thanks for tip. Appears to work but ONLY if I click REPAIR on the mods, then launch ARMA 3 into the main menu from the launcher. If I just click repair, then let it sit, nothing happens so there must be something wrong with STEAM or a file that talks to STEAM from the launcher UI. Thanks for your fast assistance!
  8. [Official] Launcher Feedback

    I have a request because I have migrated so many of my mods over to the launcher and with many mods, it is needs better sorting functions. Can we have check boxes to filter for the following so it sorts it for only: Mods that need dependencies or errors Mods that needs updating Mods that needs to be downloaded or installed, and has not yet been installed? It would help to filter and trouble shoot among other problems such as my post about STEAM WORKSHOP NOT updating or downloading any mods after a certain date, about the last two works it appears. If I launch STEAM, or "STEAM and A3L", the mods that need installing and updating sits in the QUEUE forever. .kju advised to right click and select REPAIR which works but ONLY if I have launched the game into the main ARMA menu, without actually connected to a server. I have to do this a few times going back and forth to get mods installed or updated. It does work but is annoying.
  9. I checked my A3Launcher and it appears newly subscribed mods or updated mods are not downloading. I have enough free space on my SSD. It started around the middle of Dec until now. For example the RKSL mod recently uploaded sits in the QUEUE waiting to be downloaded but it never does. I believe this is something about Steam's server again as in the past, I had trouble downloading the mods list. It used to show up as steam id numbers for the mod folders but Iceman fixed it. Anyone else having these issues as well and is there another way to force the workshop mods to download?
  10. GI JOE and COBRA

    That Cobra Rattler and Trouble Bubble looks awesome!!! I so want to fly that Firebat all over maps as a personal sightseeing jet! :D The only thing I would advise based on that one screenshot is to check if you can add details to the textures so it would not be so "flat" like other mods. If you look at all the ARMA 3 vehicles, there are small pits, and texture details in it on Ultra settings. Makes it amazing looking upfront.
  11. co10 Escape

    Was playing on Outkasts' server with DarkFurby and others last night, and noticed the AI did not launch any CAS or fast movers on us... It may be the difficulty level or player count but was fun nevertheless.
  12. MP - Ravage [COOP - 6] The Escape

    I just tested. Getting 60 FPS and 230 Ping but its playable for me as its the same as Outkast's Escape servers. I would advise to add Sullen Skies mod as optional to make it even creepier, Mr Sanchez' Headlamps and bloodlust! I will out and about today and will join in later. PS: I cannot find the server in Arma 3 Launcher but can only connect via direct. Would be easier to setup if the server can show up in the launcher but its working. Looking forward to playing with you guys.
  13. You should PM Pook who is a part of this community and request it. I am sure he would consider it among his many ARMA 3 projects.
  14. Goto Steam Workshop for ARMA 3 and do a search for Enhanced Video Settings mod: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1223309664&searchtext=enhance+video Load the mod and in the menu screen, set your video options to low+. It will lower it more than LOW! Great for FPS improvement, but be warned it does not look pretty at all. Makes ARMA 3 almost as ugly or nostalgic as the original Operation Flashpoint on default settings! :D
  15. Ravage Mod

    I would love to join an MP Ravage Escape mission but depends on the time zone due to my location. Also, enhanced movement with maybe enhanced vision, enhanced environment sound, and blast core edit would be my recommendation. It can optional since those are mostly client side mods. +1 for Chernarus Redux. Would love to find a group to play on that map.
