    Weapon Inertia & Sway Feedback (dev branch)

    Personally I think from running dropping and aiming holding breath you should only get 4 seconds controlled shooting . But if you ran dropped and waited didn't hold your breath till a little longer you get more seconds. should you be prone relaxed and hold your breath you get seconds based on how many bursts of fire and if they are short or longer. The longer the less seconds your breath holds 4.5 controlled. Shorter bursts you can maintain the 8 seconds held breath with controlled shots. Then have a greed measure people abusing the breath holding constantly in long bursts of fire in the same short engagement get slight blurred effect. ---------- Post added at 00:17 ---------- Previous post was at 00:00 ---------- This way holding your breath should be as much a tactical game, as maintaining low fatigue levels moving on the battlefield. When to hold( as in waiting a second after you drop to the ground), and also your shooting bursts as you hold it decreasing the time you can hold it( short controlled bursts give you your max 8 seconds long ones less.).. So basically it is not just this simple 8 second controlled fire.then the sway penalty.
  2. I want to make a mod in which my friends can be pond scum in game. Bis give us working ponds. Or my friends will be just regular scum.

    Damage system sucks - fix needed

    Take into account bis have people working for them that reply and give actual factual reasons for the game parts being broken based on their work. Nobody needs sounding off excuses on their behalf as you have done.it does not get things fixed in fact it as much help as someone just shouting. Abuses. It is another wasted post. Post reports of bugs if you want to help bis. And leave the excuses for another forum . Nothing wrong with criticism of the damage system. If there was, the tread be closed.
  4. An associate of mine, has a gtx 570. He recently upgraded his cpu from a phenom to I7. And he has seen vast improvements from 19 fps now 40 upwards. You could save money by going Xeon 1230 (basically an I7 minus the igpu which if using a dedicated graphics card is not used) But keeping your I7 get the devils canyon I7 4790 if it retails same as the 4770 from your choice of retailer. Look your GPU is weak the good news is you can get a decent one for cheap secondhand if needs be.
  5. Well I'll add another then. Keep this snowball rolling. to leave the game as is without ponds and the ability for inland water ruining all . After adding more boats, subs and diving seems totally ridiculous. Really backwards.

    New CH-67 Huron

    Ha when I first seen the wipeout I thought my graphics card was on the way out. Then it hit me that this aircraft was now nicknamed just the wart. To be fair it seems that this is not as fugly as the wipeout. Looks like it has a bit of stealth edge look without making it just plain stupid looking.

    AI Discussion (dev branch)

    I hope none of. The devs take any of the fair criticisms laid before them personally. And maybe understand that it is because people like the game they are so passionate about the game. they want for it to succeed therefore get frustrated when iparts are broke for so long. Glad to know yous are at least getting Down to some much needed improvements in the ai . There is a big list from ai , game performance,sounds, that have been really lacking . So it can be annoying when dlc gets announced and you look at the current state of play thinking throwing more cogs into the machine that does not work properly.

    SUVs are STUPID fragile

    Was playing a terrorism mission on section 31. Only had use of the armed 4x4. If I had not of picked an engineer we would have never finished one of the missions. Had to fix my own one 4 times. And go back severall times to fix other peoples tires. There is no going off-road in these vehicle's..
  9. Sorry for tread derail. Did you make sanguine map? Probably spelt wrong.

    What would you like to see worked on next in ArmA 3?

    This has got me killed many times trying to quickly grab vital ammo from dead ai. Look at dev branch update yesterday.might cheer you up some.

    Terrain Improvement (dev branch)

    Relax guy, its not like either are priority on the bis list right now so don't sweat it. Both are valid desires. the terrain problem is a big drag on all the effort that went into making arma look amazing. It's like my mam showering me with all these good looks only for me to go ruin it by sitting some ugly chick on my face... Sorry mam but I'm easy and she had low self esteem... On a serious note. Imo the shader is more so important. As it is not just a visual fix ,it directly affects gameplay.

    Arma 3 Helicopters DLC Discussion (dev branch)

    Just as long as they keep the guy that did the "futuristic" style on the a10 wipeout miles away from any new models. He should have been made fetch tea for a month. And wear a pointy hat with a big D on it.

    Bis help us Supporting jsrs

    I believe bis has shown it wants to give help its community going forward. A competition of 400k to the best new mod. Why not help one of its greatest contributors. There is not a player that has not heard of jsrs since arma 2. The guy making it has done of his own time and helped many of us enjoy the arma series even more. I think its time bis showed him some love back. Help the lord jar head. Have you seen his work on jsrs dragonfyre. It is sweet. I personally would like bis to charge 16 Euro for the new dlc. And 1 euro to go to jarhead. Sadly This is unlikely. But at least some recognition of his efforts. Hell consider him for a position. You bias arma bitch . Sterling archer. Aka Charlie sheen . Aka.. kick that a hole.

    Bis help us Supporting jsrs

    Bahahaha yes I can see them now saying to themselves .find his player I'd and ban before he gets drunk again.

    JSRS: DragonFyre -- WIP Thread

    BaHahah this. Surely bis should be giving lordjar, some head?. .. Jsrs has been a cornerstone of arma2/3 . Here is an analogy to some it up nicely...Vanilla sounds It's like a girl who has been pricked by a small penis. then jsrs mod sounds is like she is suddenly being stooped by a stallion. From the vanilla sounds quaility.... I gots to know what cereal box comes with one of these " qualifications" for a bis sound guy. No offense bis guys loving the church bells, bless the little scamps...

    Have you tried holding left control, and using number pad keys 4-5 to move the cockpit camera . Might help some.

    was buying arma 3 worth it ?

    First yes have played more than most games I have bought. Looking at you hacker game safe bet let down next gen my ass... A new dlc with a map that didn't stick rigidly to real life and instead had rivers to acutally finally use the boats and subs and diving gear. But yes if they brought out an arrowhead type dlc for arma3 ,60 euro no bother. It gets me through hangovers. ---------- Post added at 01:14 ---------- Previous post was at 01:11 ---------- I like that bis does try keep the community playing together even when balancing the books on a dlc. It's tough but something to be proud of as far as game devs are concerned.

    It doesn't feel the same

    Agree with snow. The balancing act sucks. One nice not huge change for me would be c sat uniforms. Just cannot stand the alien shaped helmets that look more like a squad alien bug guys running around. it just feels wrong seeing them. Not only does it feel wrong. It kinda has a jokey feel to it seeing them can't take them seriously. I'm playing nearly a year and it still has not grown on me. Most the other "future" stuff I could overlook

    Weapon Inertia & Sway Feedback (dev branch)

    You left out the part where he also said recoil which does. Don't see the direct link between just inertia and bi pods myself. Maybe he means in general why are all these features being added for realism. But then leaving out the bi pods and weapon resting that goes hand in hand when dealing with such factors, till the end. most servers I play on use Vts weapon resting for now. So can't complain too much. looking forward to the bi pods.
  20. Sterlingarcherz101

    Not played in a while, suggestions for mods

    Vts weapon resting mod. Basically virtual bi pods. Can rest on walls objects. Good mod. Jsrs 2.2 sound mod. till dragonfyre is released. Agm . Arma 3s answer to ace. Pearls a10 thunderbolt 2 . Really good quality mod. One of the best. Cannon sound is as close to real life as you are going to get.

    General Discussion (dev branch)

    Has been noted. Few people have posted vids of the same. ---------- Post added at 00:21 ---------- Previous post was at 00:13 ---------- Have been there myself. Is a pain in the hole. But To be honest, the people I have shown. have been impressed enough with the size, scope and what arma is trying to achieve to put the time in to pick it up. And that is coming from consoles thrown right in at the deep end.

    Advanced Helicopter FDM Feedback

    I read the blog. Don't get what you mean by make it clearer in regards to why start ups are being left out. from what the doc said I gathered start ups were not being implemented because then you would have start ups for helis and not for other vhicles. Which I didn't see as a problem. But maybe there is more to it. I do appreciate there are are big features being added like shooting from helis vehicles, and the flight dynamics. And a lot more pressing matters with reguards to the heli fm noted in the tread. I was just curious as to the reason behind start ups not being looked at. Guess can hope the start upscome about down the road in the arma expansion. Anyway Cheers for taking timeout to reply.

    Advanced Helicopter FDM Feedback

    Honestly this to me is a failed approach just read the feedback in this tread. It's paid dlc. You want it to he successful. Give the people that are buying it what they want? And personally I think start ups are apart of what people want for the heli dlc. I know as someone who is fully prepared to buy the heli dlc and has put his money where his mouth is when it comes to arma(owning all the series and dlc) it is what I want. It does not have to be a hugely complex start up. Don't worry about consistency of other vehicles focus on this dlc and make it all it can be. If (and I think you will) you see start ups being very welcomed. You know you made the right call. Releasing the heli dlc without features people actually want and are asking for so to ( fit in with the other vehicles) is imo a bad move. Make it top qualty and let the word spread that arma 3 "DLC" is worth the money. And brings the game to another level.

    Cheers for vid. Before I used pearls a10 mod I would have said pffft forget start ups. But after it I get it now. Start ups are.cool.

    Fatigue Feedback (dev branch)

    They are still perfecting it. And still have to add the inertia. Which when removed because it was not ready at bootcamp caused problems to the other new features. Just keep the faith and see where they. Can get it to. Before we shoot it down. Could be great.
