    Russia General

    To avoid creating a thread for each of the Russian related news, I decided to create this one to gather them. Please focus on posting news and commenting them in a civil and polite manner. First: RIA Novosti is dead, long live to Sputnik News As RIA Novosti, one of the Kremlin owned news agency, was too professional and neutral giving information the Kremlin decided to make it disappear, and create another RT like propaganda source ( which BTW is also property of the Kremlin so makes no sense IMO to keep creating propaganda sources... ): Sputnik News. ( Mashable ) Russia intensifies propaganda war by launching global news agency Sputnik ( Vocativ ) The Schizophrenia of Sputnik, the “BuzzFeed of Russian Propaganda†( RT ) Sputnik launched to news orbit: Russia’s new intl media to offer alternative standpoint ( then what was the reason to create RT a few years ago? ) ( NY Times ) Russian News Agency Expands Global Reach

    To avoid crowding the forum with a thread for each of the US related news, I decided to create this one to gather them all.

    I did miss a tractor in Arma 3. In all the instances of the OFP/Arma series there has been a tractor. Arma 3 was the first that missed it -now fixed-. I think that is a really good asset for landscape decoration and mission immersion (I only play MILSIM, so immersion is important to me). In addition, I think most of those who, like me, survived "After Montignac" thanks to a tractor, it has been an icon of the series.

    Arma 3 DLC - CONTACT

    Probably they experienced some kind of issue. Anyway, I'm sure the wait will be worth it. And whatever year they show the teaser, it's gonna be good. 😸
  5. Apparently I missed the release. Good work guys, keep it up Now we only need a Mannerheim face As someone with family that participated in the conflict and that has interviewed some of those who fought, I'm really thankful for this mod.

    I am afraid we can not understand your messages. It is hard to answer. Could you ask a friend to write them for you? Thank you

    As reyhard commented we try to update them as much as we can. But free time is always an issue. Is there any particular part you'd like to be updated? Meaning, do you need any specific info?

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    I'm afraid that you could find Arma units' events 24/7 hence it's impossible for us to please everyone. In fact Monday is quite a common day for Arma events around the world. In any case, you can always disable the steam auto-updates.
  9. That's a great idea. If you need reference pics for the Finnish side I've a good amount taken in different museums (Mikkeli, Helsinki, Parola, etc.).

    In Facebook someone suggested "Two mods, one cup (2M1C)"... I see future in that one...

    France General

    I've a huge respect for his actions. May he rest in peace.
  12. I’m afraid it’s not a Stryker MGS -which is an assault gun to support infantry-, but a Rooikat (photo below), and like the Italian Centauro it’s a recon vehicle with anti-tank capabilities. They can be pretty effective shoting down tanks. They were designed to do so. But of course, they don’t usually work alone in real life. And indeed, they are called tank-destroyers in RL. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rooikat https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/B1_Centauro
  13. Interesting missions. I liked the showcase, its quite round. The first mission of the campaign was really enjoyable and well made, I really felt inside the plot. The next two missions were a tad Call of Dutish for my taste (I killed more than 50 enemies in each), I rather take a more simulation approach using no interface assistance. In any case, good work! It was great to see you added a SP mini campaign again in the DLCs. Big thumbs up.
  14. Indeed. I really love all the new content and features. I dare to say it’s one of the best DLCs content wise (it even adds a SP mini campaign) but I can’t understand why there are no FFV positions. IMHO it’s a basic feature, at least for vehicle commanders. Even in recent conflicts like Iraq, many tank commanders fought unbuttoned (when possible), some even shot their personal weapons to defend their vehicles against enemies that got close. It’s quite a basic feature when fighting in urban places or tight spaces. I have the feeling that FFV is one of the most useful features that was brought to Arma, but one of the less used by the Vanilla vehicles.
  15. Silver Dawn Series NOTE: This campaign is still W.I.P., expect possible bugs, avaliable only for testing purpose. Description: Follow the story from different points of view of the soldiers involved in the Altian Civil War of 2015. Features: - Realism touch ( Order of Battle, radio chatter, realistic situations ) - Tracking Allied Units in the map - Deep story & lore - Certain events & units are random to add more variability - VoiceOver ( Robotic for now ) Installation: Extract the .pbo file into your Arma 3 root inside "Campaigns" folder ( create a new one if you don't have it ). Requirements: CAF Aggressors Known issues: - No voice heard inside the vehicles ( but it can be heard in the exterior view ). - The voiceover actors sounds like C3PO from Star Wars. Linguistic note: None of the Campaign texts are written in my mother tongue, so I will appreciate corrections from native speakers. Feedback: All constructive ( and polite ) feedback will be welcome in this thread. Special thanks to: - Armaholic people - Bohemia Interactive and all the people involved in OFP/Arma Series. - BI Forum moderators - CAF Aggressors mod developers - Corporal Lib - - - - - > STEAM LINK OF THE PROLOGUE ( DEMO ) MISSION (Updated: 1st June '14) > STEAM LINK TO THE CAMPAIGN PAGE (Updated: 4th July '14) > ARMAHOLIC LINK TO THE CAMPAIGN DOWNLOAD (Updated: 9th June '14) > MEGA LINK TO THE CAMPAIGN DOWNLOAD (Updated: 9th June '14) NOTE: The Campaign file only contain the first three missions, more to come.. - - - Link to the older campaign ( not supported anymore )

    Vehicle Interiors - Feedback

    I'm afraid that's not what I meant. I meant actually raise your head and unbutton partially: Check this, it does really fast but its the same idea:

    Vehicle Interiors - Feedback

    After testing the interiors a bit more, I’d like to comment few areas of improvement: View modes switch. There should be a way to switch the MFD view modes without using the 2d-view: day, night vision, thermals and info. Adding the info mode in all stations allows a useful feature for those players that don’t use PiP. Adding the other modes in the gunner stations allow a non-2D view playing, which allows bigger immersion. To add extra simulation, keybindings could be assigned for each type of view mode to allow fast switching (like in real life): - B for switching between day mode and info. - N for night vision mode (or control + N to allow also nv googles) - M for thermals Zoom mode Ability to zoom the MFD view. Maybe using alt+mouse wheel or using keys. Raise head Most games that have a certain degree of tank simulation allow you to raise your head towards the periscopes -to allow different angles- and even unbutton slowly -to keep your head protected-. That’s usually achieved with a mouse wheel movement. If there are engine limitations, another solution is to have a 3-step unbuttoning. First step at periscope height, second step hatch opened few cm enough so the crewman can see the exterior saftely -that’s how many tank commanders manage a tank in RL combat-, and a third step full unbuttoned. Map / GPS / BFT Finally, another view mode with a map / gps would be welcomed. Many modern vehicles use a Blue Force Tracker or similar. That would allow a bigger immersion, as players don’t need to have a gps spawned over the screen.

    Vehicle Interiors - Feedback

    Really impressed about what we know of this DLC. It’s going to be another huge step forward. As someone already mentioned, what would really kill it is to add few interactive buttons like in Take on Helicopters. Then it would be a totally immersive experience. And if I can give a suggestion, being able to open doors and hatches to get in and out would also be a really nice touch. Even if it’s just an automated feature. I just hope BI keeps all the Arma 3 features in a future sequel (FFV, vehicle interiors, helicopter advanced flight mode, ViV, etc.)-and please with a modern or historical setting, no more pseudo-futuristic experiments-. Then it would be a dream come true.

    Arma is cool idea but doesnt work for me

    Odd, I’ve been playing Arma 3 since it was released, at least a couple times a week. And never seen those issues. I tend to play in private servers of milsim communities. You should report any weird stuff you see in Arma’s official feedback website. Although as someone pointed out before, it’s a game working in an old engine, so don’t expect miracles.
  22. As some people may know, this last years there has been a huge movement pro-independence in Catalonia, one of the called four motors of the European Union ( one of the four most industrialized regions in Europe ). There has been debate in most of the major economical forums of the world of how could this affect the global economy ( it has been one of the main topics of newspapers like The Economist, or the New York Times ). In fact in the BI Arma 3, it's already settled as an independent country for its 2035 vision ( you can find Catalonia's independentist flag in the editor ) Tomorrow is gonna be Catalonia's National Day with a lot of independentist activities prepared ( some of them may even reach international news ), and I think it could be an interesting subject for this forum: What do forum users think about Catalonia, if they think it's gonna be the next independent state and if they feel it affects them in some degree ( specially with the deep crisis in Spain and in the whole European Union )? --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- To give some insight for people that may not know about this case I'll add a video-documentary ( spanish secret conflict ) and a few links: Europe’s next independent state? ( in The Economist ) A Referendum for Catalunya ( a NY Times article written today by actual Catalonia's president ) Celebrating Catalonia's independent spirit ( a The Guardian article by Matthew tree ) NOTE: If anyone thinks about any other interesting link that could give some insight, just tell me.
