* Arma 2 - IAS - Interactive Action System

    zvukoper started a new topic in the BI forums introducing a new mod he is working on.
      Quote Zephyrdark :
      Core concept ideas:
      • Get rid of progress-bar-like interactions and actions, which make our medics yawn while doing medical treatment.
      • Actions take so much time that is needed to perform it based on duration and complexity of it’s subactions. If player knows how to do it, he can train himself to the action sequences and become professional in particular action.
      • Each subaction is represented in intuitive keyboard and mouse manipulations which correspond to real life actions and split into certain action categories (see Actions categories below).
      • Many actions can be dangerous for the doer or can damage the object of interaction.

* Arma 2 - RKSL Studio Animations Tutorials

    RKSL-Rock released the next in this series of animations tutorials for Arma 2.

      Quote RKSL-Rock :
      In this week's entry we continue our coverage on the processes used to create animations for ArmA addons. Following last week's look at .rtm animations we now turn our attention to the model.cfg.

      The model.cfg is a text-based configuration file that is processed during binarisation of a MLOD model for ArmA, that defines the sections, skeleton and animations for that model so that the game engine can interface with the model and make it react to various inputs from the player and game world. It has three main parts: First, class CfgSkeletons which as the name suggest, defines the skeleton – the way individual sections or 'bones' in the model are connected together in a hierarchy, such that they may move together as linked objects in response to an animation source. This is followed by class CfgModels which instructs the game engine on which skeleton to use for which .p3d, and also contains the third element; class Animations where the movement the skeleton for that model is programmed, using the model's memory LOD as a point of reference for the axes of movement, and the source that trigger's these animations is defined.

    You can follow the rest of this tutorial in the BI or RKSL Studio forums.

* Arma 2 - Taviana Island

    -Martin- released a series of screenshots showing the progress he has made with this Island.

      Quote -Martin- :
      here some progress I’ve made today:

      The following city is called “Bilgrad na moru”, which in Slavic means (Was a castle by the sea).. If you build a city around a castle and you don’t know its name, you just say “Bilgrad na” and then where ever it is.

      Barracks from ArmA 1, too nice not to re-use...

      A long time ago I always wanted to build a city protected by big castle walls. But I couldn’t find the spot for it, the spot was finally found!

* Arma 2 - Gore Mod / Wound effects

    Icewindo informed in the BI forums he has started working on a new gore / wound effects mod.

      Quote Icewindo :
      here's my take on a gore mod for ArmA2 which I had some ideas about when I scripted the knights for my medieval mod to lose their heads and I got asked on YT if that could be added to standard ArmA2 units.

      I currently have two different kind of techniques. Keep in mind I base the gibs based on effects I've seen in games and movies. However if there'd be comments on how to improve it, I'd be happy to hear them.

        1. The original soldier model gets deleted and gets replaced with custom gibs (helmet, arm, body parts)
        2. The original soldier model stays, additional gibs are added
