* ArmA2 - US Desert Vehicles

    Marc15yo showed some screenshots of his US Desert Vehicles on BI forums.
    Quote Marc15yo:
    It's been a while. Well as you have noticed I haven't gotten a single reply from mcnools and it's been way to long. Now somebody said that if I wait enough and i don't get a response, it should be ok to release just as long as I credit. well I decided not to do that, and instead to just re-do the abrams, and humvees by myself same way I did all the other vehicles. Since none of the new textures belong to mcnools or any one else I'm going to release the addon very soon once I finish re-doing the humvees I'll send my files over to Rico and he'll take care of the configs.

    To start off I Re-did the Desert tan textures for all the armored vehicles. The humve textures will be updated next. Something was not quite right with the tan, i thought it was too dark. I looked closely at more real life pics, and even at the operation arrowhead screenies and tried to replicate the tan color. I also gave the vehicles a few extra touches.

    And now for the biggest part of the update. Introducing Olive Drab/green vehicles. Not neccessarily a popular thing on us vehicles, but I thought it looked sick. And I just felt like it would be a great addition to Armed assault 2.

    FDFMOD Team released screenshots on their website showing the XA-180.
    Quote FDFmod team:
    The workhorse of the Finnish army, XA-180 armored personnel carrier, is seen here on a forest road during trials. XA-180 entered service in 1983 and is operated not only by Finland but also by other nations in numerous peacekeeping operations.

    The vehicle is fully amphibious and can carry two infantry squads. Several variants have been developed along the years, culminating in the Advanced Modular Vehicle (AMV) design.

* ArmA2 - TrueFeeling

    bravo 6 informed the community on the BI forums he is working on his TrueFeeling mod for ArmA2.
    Quote bravo 6:
    I'm working on a TrueFeeling mod which changes the way you see the world around and feel it.

    For those who know TrueView, it might reminds you of it but the TrueFeeling I'm working on have different values on the FOV (Field Of View) and it also changes several combat feeling aspects such as accuracy, dispersion, which in my opinion will improve the immersion of the game and it will bring more natural and fun feeling into the Simulation.

    TrueFeeling also includes several zoom weapon changes in order to look and feel more natural without the extreme ZoomIn BIS gave to the weapons.
    The Binoculars have the option to ZoomIn like on several real binoculars.

    The M1Abrams cannon, commander etc view are in my point of view better improved, more playable and enjoyable, this means you will be able to see more, near you and far from you.

    The basic weapons do not have crosshair, though you can identify the friendly units as you can see in the above pictures and of course there will remain some small useful icons for some actions.

* ArmA2 - Isla Terra

    IceBreakr showed a screenshot of his Isla Terra map on BI forums.
    Quote IceBreakr:
    I've started a new island project as MaxRiga pointed out that we're missing a real world map, of course: made in a miniature version suitable for infantry combat with support of choppers and aircraft

    Map will feature a realistic height data of world.

    and I'll try to crate Africa/South Asia as a desert, South America is a jungle and other places similiar/close to a real world vegetation.

    I'll keep you updated with shots and hopefully a alpha version soon. Map will be made for A2 only and will feature towns and villages in positions where real biggest cities are located.

    So far its plan to use default vanilla BIS objects/vegetation only so we can have some nice "superpowers" scenarios up & running soon
