Slow development and overall dissapointment
bugeater36 posted a topic in Arma Reforger - GeneralI have been an Arma player for over a decade now. I am an avid fan of the series and I have played nearly 3000 hours of both Arma 2 and 3. I was very hyped when I first heard about Arma Reforger, as we had heard next to nothing about the next Arma game in the decade since Arma 3 released. Upon purchasing the game, I found that it was very barebones; something that Bohemia said was part of the plan. I understand that at release it was only supposed to be essentially a tech demo for the Enfusion engine. However, what little that was there, should have been functional. The server issues and constant crashing was really amateurish by modern standards, but even with those very major problems, I was willing to play. I thought that those issues would be fixed in no time; That I could dive into the workbench and enjoy this new engine and it would all work soon. Fast-forward to 2 months after release, things were very bleak. The server issues had been worked on, but most players still couldn't go 20 minutes without being disconnected from the session, and any time I tried to use the workbench, progress was at a crawl due to the constant crashing. The playerbase had decreased by nearly 90% and I was ready to give up too, but then BI released a roadmap. It honestly was a pretty simple roadmap; one that was very much achievable if development continued at a steady rate. The promised content was the bare minimum expected for an Arma game; Helis, Mortars, Mines, ETC., and was set to release in the coming 12 months. Fast-forward to now, nearly a whole year since Reforger was released, and next to nothing has been added. We received maybe half of one of the 'milestone' updates, and nearly all of the bugs, crashes, and server issues are still present. I am not here to lobby against BI, nor am I here just to rant. Everyone is familiar with the state of the game. I am here to ask Bohemia Interactive to be more transparent. If the very achievable roadmap couldn't even be 15% completed, There must be something seriously wrong with the company right now. Features that are seriously needed, asked for by the community, and ridiculously easy to add (such as a proper arsenal, a simple civilian faction, destructible trees, ETC.) have not made it into the game. I would love for them to add the promised content and more, but I really think that by now, it is too late to save this game. Arma Reforger averages around 230 players at a daily peak, and unless BI can perform a miracle, I don't see that number increasing anytime soon. The whole point of Arma Reforger was to give the community a window into what Arma 4 was going to look like. If we are to take this at face value, then Arma as a series is doomed. We, the community, should expect Arma 4 to be an overpromised, underdelivered, and content dry game that will not only be unplayable, but will receive almost no support after launch, not even the most simple of asks. Bohemia Interactive, is this seriously what we should expect? If there is anyone listening who is part of the Arma team at Bohemia, then please, all I ask is for some transparency. Make a video or something that details the problems that lead to Reforger being in the state that it is. Give us an honest view into how you plan to go foreword. The lack of communication is almost as tedious as playing Reforger in the state that it is (lol). Bohemia Interactive, you owe this to your very loyal community. If there are problems, we will understand, and many are willing to help, we just need you to communicate with us. I hope that Arma 4 will be all we need it to be, and that Reforger gets the love that it needs; and very soon at that. However, for this to be possible, there needs to be some serious change at BI. I know that I am not alone in feeling this way, every Arma player I've met agrees. Sincerely, a big fan, who cares a lot about these games.
I can't play ever again
KoshiPL posted a topic in Xbox Technical IssuesSo I decided to play Vigor... it's free, watched couple YT videos and think really nice I will give it a try. I downloaded and installed game, with no issues. Then opened the game, logged in and started tutorial. I was really happy at that point and then... I get airdrop and went to the second part of tutorial where I should see my shelter and then problem occured. After short loading I see the house in front of me for 2 seconds and then getting kicked out to log in menu with message " Error during communication with cloud service". It's been 3 days already when I keep getting this message every time I try to play game... I don't know if positioning of my character is wrong or what (maybe a Dev can just finish this tutorial for me? lol)... my internet connection is strong and fast... will I be able to play this game ever again?
Have you played Tactical Battlefield? Why did you stop?
Oric-1 posted a topic in ARMA 3 - MULTIPLAYERThis is an excellent mod and I can't understand why it's not more popular. A public PvP server that encourages teamwork and communication; isn't that what most Arma players want? Would just like to know if you've played it, what you thought of it, and why you stopped playing it. P.s. The server has gone down in numbers recently due to exams/euros/summer. It will be back.

Object Textures for Heli DLC
Kydoimos posted a topic in ARMA 3 - BI TOOLS - GENERALDear Devs, Hi there - is there any way we can get textures for the lovely objects that have come with the Heli DLC? Just discovered most can be re-textured with the setObjectTexture command! :D I know the PBOs are encrypted - but might the textures become available on Arma 3 Tools at some point, perhaps?
