    I wonder if anyone has noticed this new map. Death Zone is a partial recreation of Washington DC as seen in The Division 2. It's a pretty interesting map and would make quite a nice setting for a bit of Ravage action. I do note that there are very few enterable buildings (so loot generation is going to be fun) and it's not exactly optimised (so enjoy that framerate). But goodness, it's a nice addition to the maps of ArmA. Anyone up for the challenge? https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1912836763

    Well, that's going to make my videos shorter...

    Thank you for your kind words. I've already got a video recorded for this mission. I'll be uploading it sometime in the next few days. I always aim to show missions that will interest people into playing them. But I'm not omnipotent - if you know of a good or interesting (not always the same thing) mission that I haven't covered, I do love to receive recommendations.

    There's a new Ravage mission author: VoodooNimbul. He's just released his first mission and I know he'd appreciate comments and feedback. It's task-based and there are regular supply caches - god for people who want an easier time of survival. PS He's German - so our Deutsch contingent can comment in their native language https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1877525899

    There's an ArmA mission that's getting quite popular at the moment, called The Last Reich, by Mauseri. It's a very interesting mission that is based on solving a mysterious death. It has a really good story and there's a lot of work that has gone into making the setting. It uses Ravage for a few things and does so in quite a creative way. I think there's a few authors on here who might be rather interested in what it's doing. I think it's one of the best missions ever made. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1860401850 I've just made a video about it (cough, cough, shameless self-promotion, cough, cough) which you should not watch if you are interested in playing it (the video is one huge spoiler). But if you're interested in the mechanics of it and the setting, it might serve as an alternative to putting in the roughly four hours of gameplay time. I'm now in a copyright dispute with the agency who handles the Red Army Choir's licensing. It's quite amusing to see them attempt to claim a 1938 recording as having a current copyright and I've enjoyed quoting Soviet and Russian copyright law to demonstrate that it's pretty much impossible to claim copyright on anything Soviet before 1945. What a futuristic world we live in. If I could tell my younger Cold War-era self that one day I'd be involved in a minor legal dispute with the Red Army Choir, I'd never have believed it.

    The latest Humble Bundle is a Bohemia one (again). Perhaps worth it to pick up ArmA games for friends. $1 for ArmA 2, Take on Helicopters, Take on Mars and Carrier Command $8.70 (beat the average) for ArmA 3, Ylands, Original War and Pound of Ground $20 for ArmA 3 Apex and ArmA 2 Anniversary Edition $30 for DayZ I wish Take on Mars hadn't been abandoned as I love the idea. https://www.humblebundle.com/games/bohemia-interactive-2019-bundle

    There was a comment that came through on the wiki this morning. It may be of help to anyone looking at Contact stuff:

    Yup. I have to turn off the music when playing Ravage because I always get copyright claims and it's so tedious to go through them all. I've got five in progress at the moment just from using public domain music! So you can imagine how many I get when I leave the proper music on. And it rather sucks because the real music is good, so I totally get where you're coming from, Donnie. I've not found any decent solution to this. PS I've got 1,300 Steam games (and no children - that may seem a non sequitur, but I don't think it is) and out of the various games I've played in videos, I've only had problems with about half a dozen or so. On my previous YouTube channel where I uploaded clips from my film and video work, I got so many ridiculous claims. I got claims for music I'd paid to have written and music I'd licensed. Despite producing contracts showing I had the rights to use them as I was, I lost two copyright claims. Hence why I closed that channel. YouTube and music copyright is a real pain these days.

    Not really, but sort of. And are you sure you want to do this? Chemlights aren't very bright in real life. They're used as markers rather than light sources. So to increase the intensity would be rather unrealistic. Do you just want to see better in the dark? Chemlights aren't for that. Whilst there is the setLightIntensity command, it's really just for lights you create yourself. You could use it to create a super-bright chemlight, but I don't know of any way to apply it to a found chemlight. Maybe someone else knows better.

    The general consensus is that the Creator DLC is very much worth it. Lots of new kit and vehicles, a new map and a bunch of single and multiplayer missions. Some people have been a little unhappy about the lower standard of quality (especially with regard to vehicle interiors) and some bugs and glitches.

    That's actually a very good question. I've noticed that a lot of Ravage missions use one particular thumbnail image which was taken from one of my videos, which I, in turn, took from Haleks. So clearly people are having difficulty with this. There's a hidden page on the wiki that explains what font is used, where to find it and the image Ravage uses for the logo as well as the original image from which it's derived. I haven't made it visible yet because I still need a higher resolution image, but you can access it here in the meantime: https://ravage.fandom.com/wiki/Media

    God bless you, Haleks. Y'know if it wasn't for Ravage, I'd have spent more time working, know three fewer people and have a more successful YouTube channel.

    Having had a tryout of an early version and now the finished one, I can say that this is one of the most interesting missions yet. If you like task-based missions with a distinctive atmosphere, this is for you. Very nice. Me likee.
