Bohemia Interactive released a video of the new 3D scenario editor, Eden Editor (a.k.a. Super Arma Maker) for Arma 3.
Quote : In the stream, Eden Editor Designer Karel Moricky and Arma 3's Creative Director Jay Crowe – supported by other members from the Arma 3 devteam - provide a first look at the new 3D scenario editor, demonstrate its features and improvements over the original 2D editor, and discuss some of the key design decisions. Plus, there's a small surprise at the end: the unexpected release of the Eden Editor's Public Beta.
How to participate:
To participate in the Eden Editor Public Beta, Arma 3 players should switch to the Arma 3 Dev-Branch on Steam. This can be done by right-clicking on the Arma 3 app in the Steam Library, going to properties, select the BETAS tab, and then using the drop-down menu to select the Arma 3 development build. The game will then update and you are ready to go.
Players switching to Dev-Branch should be aware, however, that this build of Arma 3 will be updated every day to test freshest developments, fixes, and additions. It is an experimental and largely untested version of Arma 3, which contains data directly from individual team members as they work. Sometimes a part of this version can be completely broken. More information about Dev-Branch is available on the Arma 3 website.
The new editor will be made available to all Arma 3 players for free as part of a future platform update. The official release of the Eden Editor is expected in the beginning of 2016. If you have any questions about Arma 3 and/or the new editor, please do not hesitate to contact me. Enjoy the stream – and good luck with creating your own (military) scenarios!
Bohemia Interactive released a special Arma 3 developer diary video about Tanoa island, the new terrain featured in the upcoming Arma 3 expansion, which is set for release in the first half of 2016.
Tanoa island is a 100 km² South Pacific archipelago.
In this developer diary, Arma 3's Creative Director Jay Crowe and Project Lead Joris-Jan van 't Land discuss how the devteam came to a South Pacific destination, describe some of the key characteristics and points of interest on Tanoa and reflect on development so far and the roadmap ahead.
Quote : Prague, Czech Republic, Thursday July 30th 2015
Tanoa will be the first South Pacific destination featured in the Arma series. Previous Arma locations included the Mediterranean islands of Altis and Stratis (Arma 3), the Eastern-European country of Chernarus (Arma 2), the Middle-Eastern nation of Takistan (Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead), and various other terrains in the fictional Armaverse.
Besides the new Tanoa terrain, the Arma 3 expansion will include new vehicles, weapons, attachments and gear, characters, playable content, and more. The expansion is scheduled to be released in the first half of 2016 and will be distributed as DLC for the base Arma 3 game.
