Screen of the week

Cobra4v320 informed us he released an updated version of his AI HALO Jump script on the BI forums.

    Quote cobra4v320 :
    After seeing lots of posts complaining about the AI HALO jumps not working and not finding any solutions I have created a function that will allow AI units to HALO jump and it will also work with players.
    Since there is currently no cargo planes for jumping out of, I start the screen dark and use a C130 sound simulating exiting the aircraft. You can also save your backpack and loadout, you can even jump with your backpack attached to your chest.
    Set the altitude of the HALO, add a chemlight, auto open your parachute at 150m, and save your backpack with its contents, then attach a backpack to the front of your unit.


    • Fixed: when unit did not have a backpack it would show an error
    • Fixed: Chemlights would attach to the head when the unit had no helmet. It now attaches to the head when wearing a helmet or to the shoulder when not wearing a helmet.
    • Fixed: If you start out with the helicopter crew helmet it will not add another one.
    • Changed: I changed some of the sounds and added new ones.
    • Fixed: If you start out with a parachute with saveloadout selected, it will not add a parachute to the front of the unit.

    • 4 Variants of Mk4 Osprey Body Armour.
    • 3 Variants of the Mk7 Helmet

Sakura_Chan released an updated version of his Streetlamp upgrade on the BI forums.

    Quote Sakura_Chan :
    A new version of my lighting mod is now available. It doesn't change much this time, because BIS did a better job with the lighting in the beta. Basically I just adjusted the lens flares a bit, making them fade out gently as you enter or leave the light's cast cone. I did a revamp of the chemical lights, I adjusted the color and fixed a data error that made the yellow and blue lights 10x brighter than they should be. I replaced the 3d models for them as well because their default models were missing the glow effect on their LODS.

    On a side note, for the beta BIS disabled over half of the streetlights in the game. While this might seem silly, the game in its current state just can't handle multiple overlapping lights very well. A few little tweaks could get the lights working again, but it just causes slowdowns and flickering. Also, there are a ton of LOD errors with the streetlamps, you will notice that most of them are missing the light emitting parts. This results in the streetlamps looking totally dark but with a goofy lens flare just hanging there. A few if them shine only in the first LOD. The chemical lights also had this problem.


    • fixed an error with the full version

Korneel van 't Land informed us earlier Bohemia Interactive has joined forces with Andrew Gluck (better known as Dslyecxi) to create a series of Arma 3 tutorial videos.
Today Korneel van 't Land sent us the eight video in the series, this time about the games' past, present and future and what the future might bring us.

    Prague, Czech Republic, Thursday 24th October 2013

    In continuation of the official Community Guide series, Bohemia Interactive today published a new video SITREP (II) for the recently released tactical military shooter, Arma 3. Thanking all those who participated in the Arma 3 Alpha and Beta, Andrew Gluck (better known as Dslyecxi) from ShackTactical reflects on the game’s release, explores the launch package, and looks at the future of Arma 3 as a platform for official and user-made content.

    In similar fashion to the first video SITREP, this new Community Guide recaps development and celebrates the splendid release milestone. While scanning the horizon, Dslyecxi also discusses Bohemia Interactive’s dedication to supporting the game with new updates and content – including the singleplayer campaign, of whi ch the first episode will be deployed on October 31. Player-created scenarios, mods and add-ons are another point of focus, one which the studio hopes to push to a next level with additional tools, documentation, and the further integration of the Steam Workshop.

    In co-operation with Andrew Gluck from ShackTactical, Bohemia Interactive is creating a series of videos to explain some of the basics of Arma 3. Previous Community Guides already explored infantry combat, multiplayer teamwork, helicopters, sniper and launcher teams, and combined arms warfare. The upcoming season of video guides will focus on a specific range of Arma 3-related topics.

Norrin released an updated version of his Revive Script for Arma 3, which he ported from Arma 2, on the BI forums.

    Quote norrin :
    I've had a couple of people request this so the old dinosaur is back. Its essentially the old Arma 2 Revive v05 ported to work in Arma 3.

    This package of scripts creates playable units that fall unconscious when killed, which can then be revived. Enabling the ability to revive and heal other players, along with the combination of revive and respawn can really enrich your mission. The scripts can be used to enforce co-operation between players as you'll need to stick together and help one another to successfully complete a mission and they can also be used to limit the number of lives given to each player in respawn missions. These canned scripts take the guess work out of building respawn and revive into your mission and be used with the AI-enabled or disabled in the description.ext or at the mission briefing screen.

    • fixed a few more undefined variables
    • made sure that the bandage action works
