robmuzz : Deep breath.... I sent payment deatails off a week ago to the good folks at BIA ... Hope to heard about a postage date soon!
Once they got the money you should receive an email with a confirmation that the package is on the way together with a tracking number.

Also, seeing as DAC works with JCOVE and I assume VBS2, I'm in heaven! :-)
DAC is working with VBS2 just fine since almost 2 years. You just need to use the "old editor" for these missions as for whatever reason DAC won't initialize when used in the 3D Editor.

The 100s of addons I have for Arma1 ... can I just copy over the @mod folders and they'll work? Or do the PBOs need opening?
In theory all addons should work as long as they don't require Queens Gambit. All other ArmA content is available in VBS2.
However you should ask the creators first if they don't mind you're using their work in VBS2. But from my experience I can tell you that none of the people I asked were saying "hell no!".

OK, at long last it came!

I haven't heard from BI about getting onto the forums yet, so I thought I'd ask a couple of immediate questions here.

Q1:I only got about 6 maps, is that right? There's no Afgan map that comes with the US version of VBS2 lite.

Q2:First thing I did is reconfigure the controls to how I have then in Arma 1&2 ... However, the 3D editor won't allow me to rotate the camera with the RMB, or rotate a unit while holding shift... any idea what I did?

Thanks in advance...

They relocated the forums to another site and I haven't seen Gordon around recently. I would send another email to support and demand access to the support forums. ;)

6 Maps not enough? I mean no way you have explored all of them yet. :p
The Ghan map from US Army Lite is somewhere on the vbs2 website I think. Need to check.

Controls, no idea actually as I used the 3D Editor only to play around. Always did my missions in the old editor. Check your "docs" folder in the installation, there are a lot of manuals in pdf format.
After all the controls in the 3D editor are indeed different and it takes quite some time to get familiar with it.

Actually it's 7 maps (incase people are interested) they are:

Baghdad Green Zone ... New one to me!
Prison ... Also new
Warminster ... As seen in JCOVE
As Samawah ... Again, from JCOVE
Sahrani ... From Arma1
Porto ... From Arma1
Rahmadi ... From Arma1

I've found the new site (looks slick,) but am yet to get any log-in details, so can't look for a downloads area or something.

Rob, try this link to find the other terrains W0lle mentioned.

Newsletter archive

Think it was the July 2009 issue that had the links you are searching for.

Best wishes,

@robmuzz

The 7 you recieve are great for inspiration to create your own throght the DEV Suite, You can litteraly map any where in the world :) Really does open up endless possibilities.

I believe that VBS2 is probaly the most customizable Game around, the engine is Fantastic, obviously a few things that need to be sorted but the immersion you can experience with custom kit is great.

Thanks to you both, I've now got a nice long list of maps, most from Arma1

I've only just got VBS2 and V4 running on my new PC, so the learning curve
for V4 is going to be long and steep. I'm still trying to get my head around
the directory structure, and what files I need to even start a map.

There's a few that I've heard about, but not been able to find.

- Rotterdam Port

- Any of the maps from TCW (Apart from, I have the Syrian border one.)

All the links to TCW and RE seem to be 404


and some " Ghan maps " ... I don't even know any names of these.

A Small but highly detailed new Terrain Area by myself for VBS2 1.40

After taking a very skilled developers advice of going for a small terrain but high detail I have come out with a few decent looking terrains over the last few months.

Afternoon all.
Slightly off topic but this might possible be of interest to some of you on here.
I work for a company that delivers training to UK and ISAF forces using VBS2 as part of the JCOVE project and we have a position for someone to come in and help us develop some new models.

Here's the Ad:

NSC specialises in the provision of simulated training solutions to the Military. We require the support of a 3D Artist to assist with a number of projects with one that requires the integration of amoured vehicle models into VBS2. You should have proven skills in 3D modelling and image editing (i.e. Photoshop). An interest in the Military and experience of VBS2 is highly desirable. This opportunity is for 6 - 9 months with the possibility of permanent employment thereafter.

We can only consider applications from UK nationals eligible for MoD security clearance.

If your interested please visit our site at:

http://www.nsc-recruitment.co.uk/includes/jobs/PD-CW.php

Thanks for your time.
Matt

Hi,
hope you all had a nice Holiday break? I came back to find the shortcut I use to access the VBS2 forums going to a BI board with no forums... Are the boards just down at the moment? or have I missed something?
Thanks

Have you ever heard of doing a little research before asking questions? Like, read the topic or visit the VBS2 website?
I know you don't care and you just like to post whatever comes to your mind on a minute basis, but I do care and your spam, not reading, not searching and randomly posting questions behaviour on our forums is annoying me.

Read the rules for starters and adjust your posting behaviour please. I have no intention to ask this more than 1 time.
