  1. Is there a way to slap down some dollars and download high quality audio (pref high bit rate or lossless version) from the orchestra recordings? Did I miss the link the recent announcements, etc, to where to do that?
  2. Thanks these are all helpful, im working through trying it.
  3. Thanks, its a bit late replying, but none of this actually works. From the moment they hop off the helicopter, and before they get to next waypoint, they walk off edges.
  4. So I am in the midst of creating a fun mission. Fly small heli, low altitude terminal flight, quiet insertion of a covert team on the end of a pier. Infil accross a cargo yard, through a street, take down a target, and get out safely before the reaction force a couple towns away pins you down... Except 3 seconds after we land, my AI teammates are walking off the pier like freakin' lemmings. Anyone have any ideas? Seems to be a pathfinding awfulness, and not even "natural" "barriers" that I had hoped would stop them - like rope fence objects - stop them from doing that because rope fence is not a barrier...
  5. I think the challenge is creating the directional light in the first place and attaching it to editor objects. Delving into class names and class attachment rather than having a scripting interface like we do with "orb" lights is a significant limitation to do things like prisons, directional night lighting for landing spotlights, and many other things I am sure I havent thought of but others will.
  6. A cursory search is showing a multitude of threads where people needed this feature in ARMA 3: https://forums.bistudio.com/topic/174500-there-is-any-way-to-emulate-a-flashlight-without-using-a-flashlight/?hl=spotlight#entry2730047 https://forums.bistudio.com/topic/176903-making-a-light-sweep-an-area/?hl=spotlight#entry2775315

    Eden Feature Requests

    I would really love the opportunity to set an interface scaler. I use a 43" 4k monitor. The interfaces are massive on my screen, and having the ability to either have more text space for scripting OR to just have the overall dialog box be smaller would be welcome.

    Thank you.

    Seriously. Thank you, BI, this is a huge step forward. Ill take the bugs and the maturity process for the massive step forward in functionality already in the RC.

    Low CPU utilization & Low FPS

    My desperate hope is that Arma 4 is on a new engine that is built for modern parallelized operations form the start. I have a six core i7 and GF GTX 780, neither is being stressed because so much is hung off of one monolithic pipeline.
  11. Thanks. "east" works. SetFriend is... inconsistent in how the AI reacts once hostility commences.
  12. I have a mission where I would like the independent side to meet in peace with csat. Two officers walk out, they have a disagreement, and run most of the way back to the APC. When they get near the APC, that side goes hostile to the other. So the mission is configured so that independent is friendly to CSAT. I need to tell the game to make independent hostile to CSAT. I tried using "independent setFriend [csat,0];" Which doesn't appear to work. How do I do this in ARMA3?
  13. I think thats exactly what I was looking for. Das, I could kiss you. Confirmed working. This appears to be the "SW" specific suppressor.
  14. I cant get any of the suppressors actually to attach to the weapon.
