  1. I 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.
  2. Good day, I'm part of the active modding team, still working on new content for this title, supported by Stucuk (the active developer of the game currently). We really wish this game finally came to light and got some more attention with all its old and new content because it is an underappreciated gem. I've looked on the Steam store page a while back and noticed that it only features some old pre-alpha screenshots which do not represent the actual game content. The site lacks some of the more modern "polish" like few short clips and new screenshots of the actual game. The game has got a UI overhaul, along with lots of QoL and small engine improvements to help it progress into its twenties. We made a list of new screenshots, plus 3-4 clips about the game in its current state. We would really like to ask Bohemia for an opportunity to refurbish the Steam page with the new content we have already prepared. Is there any person that we could contact and present our materials to? Best regards,
  3. Hello community. Bohemia Interactive has released several game data packages for the modding community. In addition to these data packages, new rules regarding content licensing and usage have been put forth for content creators. This thread will serve as a Questions & Answers hub for all matters related to the above mentioned data packages and the new content licensing terms. Simply post a question and a qualified person (most likely a developer) will answer it. The data packages and related information can be found HERE The new content licensing terms can be found HERE

    Arma 3 Antistasi

    Anybody working on porting antistasi to fapovo island, I think this map would be perfect for it.
  5. PS5 I've made multiple purchases and not gotten them after. I tried contacting customer aupport and basically got completely blown off!!! I've NEVER had this from a game or support before. The only reaponse I recieved was "turn it off and back on" and then DAYS LATER, I get a link to this forum and told to post here about it!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! This is RIDICULOUS and I'm FURIOUS!!! I have the emails to forward to show which support person I was in contact with but I want a refund for what I purchased and haven't gotten. I'm deleting anything you have to do with and I'll make sure to recount this experience on every single forum or comment section I ever find myself in. I'm SO PISSED OFF!!
  6. Hello, community! 🙂 I have tried to create a mod with units using Drongo's Config Generator. I know how it works and I have created some mods already. What I want to share is an issue when I made my last mod. I have used this mod: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1124966491 for the uniforms and also Contact's Spetsnaz units, as my units should be Russians. I have tried the mod afterwards and only the uniforms are the CSAT vanilla (default) ones instead of the Russian variants. I have tried several times and I have got the same error every time, no matter if you units are from the F1 faction menu or the F2 groups menu. What could cause this problem? Thank you in advance! 🙂 🍻

  8. Hi! I'm Ezcoo, founder of Task Force Northern Wind. Task Force Northern Wind is intended to be a small group of developers specialized in developing multiplayer gamemodes and the required content for them in agile manner in Arma 3. The group name and logo describe the group's vision: just like the icy-cold northern wind hitting you in the face when you step out of the door in Nordics, our goal is to create immersive experiences that make players concretely feel, whether it's excitement, fear or passion. The group will be shaped by its members, which means that every member – including you – has a good chance to affect the direction we'll be taking in our future projects. I decided to found the group because I've been in the Arma modding (mostly mission editing) scene for years, but haven't accomplished much. I started as a complete noob back in 2012, having no idea of anything, but got constantly better at my niché, game design, with the right mixture of inspiration and perspiration. I consider myself pretty skilled in it nowadays. I've been part of several ambitious projects that didn't take off for some reasons: either they turned out to be too large projects for the team or – most importantly – the chosen development method was suboptimal considering the ambitiousness of the projects. Regarding the latter reason, it took me a while to understand why I was failing to deliver despite of having the honor to work with such amazing teams of developers I actually was working with. Eventually I figured it out. The reason is that I'm strongly the type of developer that utilizes agile methods with very short feedback loop and iteration interval. I've been working with and in teams that have had developers from all around the world, which lead to a single iteration lasting for a day or even several days, which, in turn, lead to difficulties in managing and designing the project on my part. That's why I decided to found Task Force Northern Wind – a developer group deploying a set of practices that utilize agile development and tight cooperation between developers, ultimately leading to better results. Task Force Northern Wind is looking for you, if you're able and willing to take part in development of multiplayer gamemodes during European noons, meaning approximately the time between 09:00 and 19:00 GMT. We're seeking people with a friendly and cooperative mindset; in addition, while tolerance to the consistently present bad humor is not required, it just will make your life a lot easier! If you're a scripter/programmer, we'd love to hear from you if: you master full stack development from database setup and integration to user interfaces in Arma, especially considering the multiplayer environment; OR you master some of the skills required in multiplayer mission development and you're available to work with other developers when they need you approximately during the above-mentioned time window. If you have other skills that you think we might be interested in, make sure to contact me on Steam or join our Discord and poke us! See you on the battlefield!
  9. So I have tried googling and such but I have yet to find an answer to my question. Is there any chance of having new animations in-game? Because even simple animations are non existent like a unit clapping or yelling and such. It would be really nice for mission makers if crowd animations were existent for example. We would create better environments and make story driven missions making even more feasible. I mean I tried finding animations cheering the players who arrive and I could not find like one such animation. The LOW DLC should alone have some. Civilian casualties and their actions in times of war, how can we depict them with no appropriate animations? So even if there are no such plans please keep the question as a request because if after the Tanks DLC the game stops having serious updates it would be a minus not to have a few more animations.

    Premium Content Suggestion

    Playing with friends, they're often confused by what is premium and what isn't in the arsenal. I was thinking premium items could be color coded (corresponding to their CfgMod) to show what really is premium. A small line of code "isPremium = true" for example could be added to decide what is, or some other way. Amazingly high quality example: The color itself for premium weapons would be visible before selection, mind you.

    Arma 3 Apex - content predictions?

    I'm starting this thread to discuss possible content for Arma 3 Apex. Anyone have predictions? Here's mine: To start off, factions. I personally think we'll be seeing USMC forces [BLUFOR] along with Chinese forces [OPFOR], and possibly Australian/CTRG forces [BLUFOR]. Of course, we'll likely see Tanoa's military [Independent] and a guerrilla faction [OPFOR]. Now for vehicles and weapons. It's confirmed that we'll be seeing Light Strike Vehicles and VTOLs, and possibly larger Patrol boats. Here's a list of what I'm assuming will be added: United States Marine Corps: APX - Pistol MP7 - Sub Machine Gun HK416 - Assault Rifle M27 IAR - Light Machine Gun HK417 - Sniper Rifle SMAW - Rocket Launcher ALSV - Light Strike Vehicle Cougar - Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected EFV - Infantry Fighting Vehicle M551 Sheridan - Light Tank M1A3 Abrams - Main Battle Tank UH-1Y Venom - Transport Helicopter AH-1Z Viper - Attack Helicopter V-22 Osprey - VTOL Helicopter F-35B Lightning - VTOL Fighter CB90 AMOS - Patrol Boat USMC forces would have a wide variety of modern-futuristic gear, with some assets possibly being futurized. The Sheridan obviously being modernized. Australian Defense Force: USP - Pistol AUG-A3 - Assault Rifle AICW - Assault Rifle MAAWS - Rocket Launcher Hawkei - Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected AS-LAV - Armored Personal Carrier OH-58 Kiowa - Light Helicopter Australian forces would retain a somewhat light force, similar to that of the AAF in scale and variety. Tanoan Armed Forces: M16A4 - Assault Rifle M60E4 - Light Machine Gun LAV-300 - Armored Personal Carrier AS-365 Dauphin - Light Helicopter AV-8B Harrier - VTOL Fighter Tanoan forces would service gear similar to that of Fiji's military, while obviously having new additions for variety. Tanoan Irregulars: AK-74 - Assault Rifle RPK-74 - Light Machine Gun SVD - Sniper Rifle RPG-7 - Rocket Launcher Tanoan irregulars would retain a lighter force, primarily using Cold War era equipment and repurposed Civilian vehicles. People's Liberation Army: QX-04 - Pistol QCW-05 - Sub Machine Gun QBZ-95 - Assault Rifle QJY-88 - Light Machine Gun QBU-88 - Sniper Rifle AMR-2 - Anti-Material Rifle FAV - Light Strike Vehicle CS/VP3 - Mine Resistant Ambush Protected ZBD-09 - Armored Personal Carrier ZBD-04 - Infantry Fighting Vehicle ZTZ-99 - Main Battle Tank PGZ-95 - Self-Propelled Anti-Aircraft Gun PLZ-05 - Self-Propelled Gun Z-10 - Attack Helicopter Z-9 Haitun - Transport Helicopter Z-11 - Light Helicopter J-31 Gyrfalcon - VTOL Fighter Chinese forces would service modern-futuristic equipment, with some assets possibly being futurized. So that's my list. Anyone else have any ideas?
  12. Here's a reinforcement script I made for a SP mission. It ended up being a project in itself. Initially I made the script to reinforce the enemy. However, it can also be used for friendly reinforcements just as easy. How It Works: -Spawns in a flying helicopter -loads it with an infantry group -heads to the AO and drops the group off in the general vicinity of the LZ Marker. Either by landing or by paradrop. -The infantry group will seek & destroy the nearest enemy(ies) or go into patrol mode. -The helicopter then flys off to [0,0,0] to be deleted. -The helo may choose to turn around and engage known enemies instead, if he sees it necessary. Notes: Intended for SP use, but should work on dedicated server aswell. No testing was done in a dedicated environment, though certain precaution(s) were taken while writing the script so that it may work on dedicated aswell.

  13. I posted this on Reddit and felt that I should also post it here. I apologize if it's not in the right area. I'd imagine with the team working primarily on Apex and Nexus, there isn't much of a chance of us seeing old content such as the AMOS Marshall and KSG Shotgun. I think Bohemia Interactive should release older content with complimentary textures, unbinarized models, and config if possible, allowing the community to examine or add them in themselves. I really think BIS should consider this, and could possibly release it with the Arma 3 Samples. What do you guys think?

  17. - Bohemia Interactive, creators of the critically acclaimed Arma series and the standalone version of DAYZ, today announce the €500,000 Make Arma Not War content creation contest for Arma 3. With cash prizes ranging from €20,000 to €200,000, spread across four different categories, Bohemia Interactive challenges people to deliver their best work yet - and potentially move onto the radar of hundreds of thousands of Arma 3 players. Using the game as their platform, people can compete in four different categories: Total Modification, Singleplayer Game Mode, Multiplayer Game Mode, and Addon. The headline prize will be awarded to the winner of the Total Modification category, where the sole victor will be taking home €200,000. In the other categories, prize money is divided between 1st place (€50,000), 2nd place (€30,000), and 3rd place (€20,000). Projects which show a lot of potential might also be offered a contract by Bohemia Interactive, whether they have won the contest or not. “We’re delighted to be running a contest of such an incredible scope. The Make Arma Not War contest was brought to life to support our dedicated community of content creators, and stimulate the exciting culture of creativity that has formed over the yearsâ€, said Ivan Buchta, Creative Director at Bohemia Interactive, and one of the contest organizers. “Of course, with the stakes being this high, we’re expecting people to raise the bar – and we hope Arma 3 players will be there with us, to boost morale, and enjoy the fruits of the contestants’ hard labor.†In addition to the €500,000 in cash prizes, Bohemia Interactive is also proud to announce a unique collaboration with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), who will be handing out the Health Care in Danger Special Award. Given to the entry which covers the topic of ‘health care in danger’ the best, the winner(s) will go on a one-week trip to an ICRC mission in a foreign country, organized by the ICRC. While the application period is scheduled to open in 2014, people are already welcome to start working on their project. The closing date for submissions is October 28, 2014, after which a jury of Bohemia Interactive representatives and other industry professionals will begin to evaluate the finalists in each category (10 in the Total Modification/Multiplayer Game Mode/Addon categories, 20 in the Singleplayer Game Mode category). The winners will be announced on January 15, 2015. More details, including how people can cast their vote and support their favorite projects, are to be announced at a later date. “With the launch of the first Arma game in 2001, we’ve laid the foundation for our series’ long-standing history in user-content and modifications. It has led us to enjoy many amazing creations, among which is the popular DAYZ modâ€, said Bohemia Interactive’s CEO Marek Spanel. “Support for mod-making has always been a priority, and with Arma 3, our goal is to take it to the next level. The Make Arma Not War contest, as well as Arma 3’s integration of the Steam Workshop, the updated EULAs, and our refreshed Arma 3 tool suite, is all part of this effort. We can’t wait to see what comes from it!†The rules for the contest, which also includes information on dates, prizes, and categories, can be found on www.makearmanotwar.com. The Make Arma Not War website will be updated regularly, starting with additional instructions on how to apply in the beginning of next year. Last but not least, to stay up to date with the latest developments, people can sign up for the Make Arma Not War newsletter. Important announcements regarding the contest will also be communicated via the official Arma 3 social channels (Facebook, Twitter).
