V.I.R.U.S. is a total conversion mod for ArmA.


*History:

V.I.R.U.S. based on the graphics-engine of Armed Assault. But in the final version is nothing like it was in ArmA. New Sounds, Textures, Models, Music and Story. The V.I.R.U.S.-Project was already started in Operation Flashpoint but ArmA brings new graphics and possibilities we surely want to use. Sahrani is the island the game is located on. Tropical climate and warm water makes this island to a paradise of tomorrow.

*Individual Mission Planning System (IMPS)

That is the new system we created for our game. After the fourth mission in the game you will be able to choose what you do next. So you can choose where you will attack, how and when you will attack next. Therefore you got a little window where you can choose the time (day or night), where (different towns or bases of the mercs) and the important thing, how you engage the enemy (with Aircrafts, Tanks, Infantry or better in a Spec-Ops-Team or alone. At the moment the system is ready for 60%. I will upload a small video next time to show how it works! :)

*Status:

Graphic: 85%
Sound: 45%
Music: 50%
Units: 83%
Effects: 10%
Voice: 35%
Story: 100%
Cutscenes: 35%
Multiplayer: 10%
Singleplayer: 55%

*Estimated release date:

The time we want to release the game is about the 2Q 2007.

Do someone know what happened to this mod ? I can't download the mod on either their website or on another mirror like armaholic. Looks like their website has been locked and their files deleted...
