    Sounds just like earlier games in the series. God, do these lazy developers never change anything? :)

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    Well that's why we have games with various levels of realism from ArmA, through COD and Battlefield to Bulletstorm etc. There's something for everyone (or every mood, as I have enjoyed games in each of those series')

    Wheeeeeee, new chopper.

    Independent get a transport and attack chopper named the Hellcat based on what looks like the Bell 206 (or Venom) platform. It has 2 forward facing side-mounted miniguns (5000 rounds) and 2 side-mounted rocket pods (24 OARs).

    The nose has a camera pod with FLIR imaging. A screen on the panel shows the FLIR camera feed. The camera pod is slaved to the co-pilot's head (but not with TrackIR!!!). If the co-pilot is looking forward, or is absent, the screen can be used for lining up shots. Sadly this optics package does not have a laser for marking targets.

    The Hellcat fills the gap between the Hummingbird and the Orca or the Ghosthawk. While not as fast as the bigger birds, the Hellcat is more maneuverable. I managed to barrel roll it (not advised) and loop it (quite safely). In the right hands its armaments will help bolster any ground offensive. Buildings will disintegrate from sustained minigun fire allowing you to save the rockets for much harder targets (or groups of fleshies in the open), the enemy can't keep a foothold with this baby in the air.

    Tactical Battlefield - TacBF

    Probably the most hardcore version of Battlefield style gameplay ever.

    Pretty much an ARMA3 version of the BF2 Project Reality mod. Squad play is promoted by only unlocking roles when team and squad sizes are large enough. You can only rearm with kit that your role is allowed to use.

    A match is pretty standard capture points and tickets.


    Last match I played all I saw of the enemy was one Hunter GMG and one dude. Who I shot at, and missed. But the sounds of battle really drives up the tension. Better learn your rifle sounds and uniforms. :)

    Anyone know if the stars in the night sky are realistically modelled like the last game? And if so, what region/season star chart do I need?

    The stars I believe are correct. The game is set on Grecian Islands, so You'll want a Northern hemisphere chart. You can also set the time of year in the editor.

    Thanks, found the big dipper, polaris and cassiopeia. I think I found Jupiter as well, but I can't find Orion's belt to go with it.

    Gave it a ten minute blast but with no guides on the map screen and even the internet seemingly devoid of an FAQ/guide/wiki I've got no idea how to go about doing things.

    If you wouldn't mind me tagging along I'd welcome the company!

    On another note I hopped onto a Wasteland server, having loaded A3 up for the first time since about Novemeber and was getting 60-80fps :o Not sure if it was some performance command lines I added or patches for optimisation but god damn it's such a better experience with 60+fps.

    The Karts is just hilarious, I think the clothes too is just a bit WTF did they add them for?!?!

    Also I've just opened my own altis life server at 149.3.142.146:3102 if anyone is interested in the game.

    Just message Raz in-game and i'll sort you out with 250k in free cash to get you started :)

    Anyone up for resurrecting the old EG ARMA nights with this?

    @Rusty_M I'd love to give it a go, although I'm only just going through the start of the campaign (badly)

    Competence is not required. I haven't played ArmA III since the second set of showcases were released, but a bunch of guys from EG used to play DayZ and ArmA II for a while, and it was a good laugh. Mostly we didn't do very well.

    @Rusty_M

    I'd be interested. I've been enjoying Arma for years but only played online a few times. My gaming PC's broken atm but when it's sorted I'll see if you peeps manage to arrange something, could be a good laugh.

    Give some advanced warning and I can coax a few people into a game.

    Me to please, enjoyed those Arma 2 nights - hours crawling through forests only to be shot as soon as we get near a town.
