Hi Arma guys
I'm on making a campaign for arma 2 arrowhead. The campaign is about the US operation Salam "Peace" for controlling Sadr City.
The question is should I continue for arma 2 "which I have" or should I switch to Arma 3? And is there a map represents Baghdad for Arma 3?

I still play ARMA 2 OA because not only is it a great game, except optimization is terrible, but I can run it, and it has way more mods than ARMA 3

That's right mate but the problem is there is no new mods or scenarios for arma 2 OA and arma 3 has boring mods!!!

Totally agree with ya. I find the AI much more enjoyable to work with (using the Smart AI Mix by Chris B). And, if you want to make the game look better graphically, try this color script to liven up the atmosphere (credit to Dario):
"colorCorrections" ppEffectAdjust [0.7, 1.4, 0, [0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0], [1.1, 0.8, 0.3, 1.6], [0.4, 0.4, 0.4, 4]]; "colorCorrections" ppEffectCommit 0; "colorCorrections" ppEffectEnable true;

I've literally had people remark that Arma 2 looks like Arma 3 using this color script. In certain circumstances, maybe even better.

+1! Here's mine, it's simple but super colorful :D

"colorCorrections" ppEffectAdjust [1, 1, 0, [0, 0, 0, 0], [0.5, 0.5, 0.5, 1.5], [0.5, 0.5, 0.5, 0]];
"colorCorrections" ppEffectCommit 0; "colorCorrections" ppEffectEnable true;

Also did you know that you can make a tiny mod with a config line like this:-

class Extended_PostInit_EventHandlers
{
my_color="[] execVM ""\color\color.sqf"";";
};

Where color.sqf file contains your color setting preference, and then it will automatically take effect on every campaign/mission you play! (just needs CBA) Maybe not suitable for every mission of course, like those moody zombie missions, but very handy.

You literally read my mind! I was wondering how I could make a mod out of it. It's not that difficult with the ACE debug, but this is even more convenient. Thanks! Consider adding me on Steam since I'm thinking of getting some COOP missions together using the Smart AI mix. These AI are some of the best in the series.

YW. I would certainly be interested in a better AI mod but where can I find this "Smart Mix" of which you speak? I thought I knew all the available mods. I notice the top two threads here atm are Arma2 threads - maybe if you get more people together they will give up on Arma3 and come back to Arma2. :D

Essentially, Chris B, who is a member of the KAI community, would test various AI addons together for the best results possible. As of right now, they use the legendary KAI mod (which is privately held):

Back on topic of this mix, this bundle works incredibly well and is some of the best AI in the series! Here are the results I got with it.

AI Garrison Building:

AI Conduct Bounding Overwatch:

AI Engaged In Intense Firefight (With 3rd Party Objects):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nY0EkkFnC5c&feature=youtu.be

The last one I'm about to mention is one of the more impressive ones. To sum up the event, which I really wish I had recorded from the beginning, I had engaged a Chinook with an MK19 but I continually missed. I fled to the nearest building for cover because it was viciously engaging me. Once I was inside the building, I again started firing some shots from my rifle, which caused the Chinook to turn around and fire at my position. Wanting to get out of this dangerous situation, I ran away from the scene when it was doing a lap to conduct another assault. Interestingly enough, even though I fled the area, it still thought I was inside those quarters:

At the moment, I haven't taken the time to record their flanking abilities, which are really good. You can find more info about this mix from the comment section of this specific video, where Chris outlines the steps: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUjliOhBK9s&index=9&list=PL9NUE-qPgDOA86MUsyEhFPxxl02uw54ww

P.S. If you use ACE, there is an easy workaround since that mod can impact the AI's abilities.
