Want to know your ping times?
Open Command Prompt and type ‘ping oper8ors.live’ then hit enter.
Look for: ‘time=XXXms’. This is your ping time to the server.
Hopefully the formatting works correctly this time
Mod list, when you install TFAR remember that the TS3 plugin is inside the @tfar mod folder and needs to be installed for the mod to work
remember to report >>27332
with your server ip so it gets edited into the op.
Going to continue dropping my OC here, but this is the last series I made
Is there cyka to blyat seeking missiles?
Also are you open to running some obscure army mod in the mix? Like Leaf, Aus, Ital, Spanard, Bong?
>Arma Brit Mods
You really don't want that.
What is this creature?
A surprisingly competent modder that's also a tranny.
Competent modder is an understatement
>Create most autistically detailed vehicle models, animations and interiours for Arma 3 3 years before there was even thoughts about creating Tanks DLC
>Move from Britbongistan to Australia
>Decide to abandon Arma modding to chop your dick off and dedicate your life to being a transginger
What I want to know to this day is what did Australia do to it?
>Also are you open to running some obscure army mod in the mix? Like Leaf, Aus, Ital, Spanard, Bong?
Only if we'd continue using the mods for several weeks or months. It's a significant effort to download and install mods on the server and then make sure all the players have the new mods. to one-and-done a bunch of small mods is a waste of my time tbh
Impromtu Game in 1 Hour
Same mods and everything, I'm bored and want to play vidya so I'm hosting a game tonight
Oh, cool, it's real NEET hours oper8n time
Shit I only woke up
When are we going to have a NEET operation to retake KFC?
Goddamnit, why you niggers always play right when there's an MMA event to watch?
Will I be able to JIP because Chael Sonnen is fighting and I'm not fucking missing that.
is the teamspeak updated?
So going to run some zombie mods this month?
Any public servers fags would recommend? I am not so picky about it having mods unless it's a million gorillion obscure custom ones.
TBH i prefer a server with mods, considering how installing them is so streamlined now. Any of the invade and annex servers can be fun, some have more milsim autism than others if you like that.
What you playing this weekend? I need popcorn.
Been digging around looking for an Unsung but nothing of promise.
No idea. I won't be there cause I am busy.
Why not have a mission where you have to capture some lolis and take them to the ice cream shop in a windowless van?
okay so we have to escape the ice cream shop in a windowless van after being captured by the lolis
That actually sounds not bad. Call it escape from headpats?
>Still no winter warfare focused Arma game
Next Arma game should be set in Siberia fighting Skinwalkers.
Game will, as always, be on Sunday 10AM AEST.
I'm interested in adding a new map to the mod list, or even a new faction. Reply to this post if you want your suggestions to be considered for the server
Sahrani is a good map that nobody plays yet gives you a lot of flexibility with mission design.
CUP terrains contains all that you'd need.
Something not RHS. NIArms has some good raifus but no sure how compatible it is with ACE. Or we could play some Unsung?
Some of the content is from OFP, but it's pretty damn solid overall. It's even got ANZAC in it as a faction complete with L1A1 rifles. The hueys are also GOAT for a mod.
Italian or Spanish armies mods are surprisingly good with some unique gear that you won't see anywhere else. Since everyone is determined to play Arma 2 forever it would make a nice change from Burgers or Gopniks.
Shame Africkangz Conflict mod never got updated for ACE otherwise would recommend that.
I am up for some Sahrani. Maybe some Nogova as well.
I thought CUP had issues still compared to dedicated ports?
Unsung is neat and all but a lot of content needs work. In particular every gun seems to feel the same.
Even if Afrikang Conflict isn't ACE compatible, at least the map people typically run with it is pretty nice and can be used with other mods.
Isla Duala looks really good, might add that as the mission next week (not this game, normal mods tomorrow). Keen to do some long range patrols on motorcycles and such fighting against an African Kangdom
>long range patrols on motorcycles and such fighting against an African Kangdom
Sounds like fun
Is it running tonight still?
MilSim is mostly cancer in Arma to be honest. Full of underages and manchildren who don't know what they are fucking doing.
So where are screenshots and webms?
No idea I wasn't around. Hell still got files from last week to go through and make webms of.
In meantime what do you think Priest is hiding?
>Priest with a minigun
You fags running some sort of Hellsing mod?
Anon why are you posting an image for ants?
No anon just know how to abuse the game and have fun with it.
While most of your typical milsim fags were learning how to fill out an application form, complete a competency based questionaire, wearing their best suit and tie to a skype video interview, trying to chase up references and hoping that the community they are applying to will accept a note from their mum only to be rejected as they are believed not to be a suitable fit for door gunner; anons were busy learning how to play the game.
Hence why we know how to make some absurd looking loadouts that actually far more capable than what your average drone comes out with. Hell I would not be surprised if most fags in this thread have not even tried the campaign at all yet.
>skype video interview
Do Armafags actually do that?
Some actually do. You have to go through a whole interview process. Some milsim groups in Arma is like applying for a job.
Why would anyone do that?
Cause The Arma Community?
This webm is relatively accurate if only the last part is changed from DayZ to Altis Life
Actually come to think about it that Arma Song webm would be more accurate if it were a 3minute long autistic screeching from milsim autists crying about Arma 3 being futuristic and demanding that Arma be eternally 2005, never going past 2008 cause they want to play Arma 2 except with less content and even less technologically advanced gear to the point that all the futuristic shit that was taken out of Arma 3 is now hilarious outdated.
Anyway here is an example of some of the autism you are missing out on by luckly avoiding milsim autists:
>Ensure these supplies are separated into color coded bags in order to avoid confusion.
Oh boy this is going to be great.
Teams are to be constructed by the Operation Commander’s discretion.
(This is to avoid breeding elitism amongst the members of the unit. Teams should be regularly rotated with new members for each operation to ensure diversity in these teams. I.E: NO PICKING FAVORITES(This applies to all NCOs and Officers, no one is exempt))
>Go on Steam to look at recruiting clans
>This one pops up
>Go to "Detail"
>Get this message
This is actually quite mild all things considered.
I am not even sure how to react to this. This shit is getting better and better.
I would apply as a shitpost. What is their application form like?
Not sure, it's locked behind an account registration.
So just use guerrilla mail?
Yeah but do you have a letter from your mum?
>Be NEET looking to do something interesting in life
>See a listing that the Fusiliers are recruiting
>I could be in the military, okay
>Go on website
>Create an account on their portal page
>Fill out recruitment application with my name, dob, email, experience
>Wait two weeks later, receive an email back from recruiter that they're interested in me
>Invite me to a online interview with them and schedule an interview time
>Interview arrives, already practiced all my questions and what they would ask
>Nail the interview, get told to wait a few weeks while they decide on recruits
>Follow up with a thank you email to the recruiter for interviewing me and how excited I am to join the military
>Get email back saying that I am now accepted to the military and to update my stuff accordingly and my training starts in a week
>Pack up my belongings as I get ready to head off to training
>Realize I've never been given a plane ticket or a location to head to training at
>Training is an online course
>Okay, I'll go through that instead and then I'll be off for actual training
>Go through online training, pass
>Get told I'm now officially in their unit
>I spent all this time joining the military, and it turns out all I joined was a group of Arma 3 players pretending to be the military
Or Papay Taylor?
You joined something bigger than the military anon. You joined Arma milsim!
What if you end up signing up for the military for real but don't know it? It's a front for recruiters to secretly get fresh blood?
>B-but I just want to play video games!
Why is shit like this even present?
I am literally lost for words.
>want to enjoy a game like arma with other players
>want to do it every weekend when you're free, maybe a clan is the best option
>instead get this milsim autism
>srs bsns type shit
>you'd have a better time joining the actual military
This is on par with airsoft faggots who think they're hot shit because they took the orange tip off their fake cheap plastic replica.
>Signed up for the "88th Advanced Uber Tactical Improvised Special Marines" unit today
>I had to fill out an hour long form where I gave my address, copy of my birth certificate, social security and phone number but it was worth the wait
>Had to join a teamspeak with a bunch of other applicants, was called into an office one by one to be interviewed. Was asked what experience I had with Arma, what groups I had been part of, name good things about the groups, bad things, when I had good and bad experiences and what I enjoyed and hated, what I would do differently.
>After the interviews were over sit in channel with other applicants. After a lengthy wait they come down and say "Congratulations anon, you have been successful. The rest of you will have to reapply next time"
>Was given a welcome package consisting of a 60 page PDF and a 12 month calendar highlighting all mandatory training days and operations, weekends were now taken up and I had to be on the server 6pm on the dot every weekday or be ejected.

>Our drill Sergeant, Sergeant Squeaker, orders us to do jumping jacks till his mother yells at him to come down for dinner and he gets into a row with her over the lack of chocolate milk afterwards he is grounded

>Eventually go on a practice patrol where we carry only 20lbs of gear each, no medics or ammo, yet still have to stop for breath every 10 meters because the stamina system says we are overloaded

Video related speaks volumes and is relevant to Arma community as a whole
Pretty good. Funny you say nobody knew how to fire their guns. There's been issues where I was in a public server playing Commander role and a squad lead told me that half his squad had no idea how to fire their weapons I shit you not.
>a squad lead told me that half his squad had no idea how to fire their weapons I shit you not.
What the fuck? Were they playing with 65 year olds, someone who has never played a fucking FPS game in their life or something?
Let me guess fags that jumped straight into multiplayer having never played an Arma game before expecting it to be like Battlefield or Call of Duty?
What >>89932 said
Fags had not played the game before. Didn't even to single player or tutorial, just jumped straight in to multiplayer, found a server, and didn't tell anyone they didn't know how to play till we were fighting. The joys of public servers.
Mean I get new players not knowing how to play but I am still scratching head to this day where they would wait till they were in a firefight to ask how to play?
This thread makes me want to know what other Arma stories anons have to share. Milsim autists the better.
>88th Advanced Uber Tactical Improvised Special Marines
Sounds like a unit anons would be ideal for
Well I could go about the time I kept killing the CO of a milsim in a PvP scenario without fault?
Well this thread took a turn for the kek
This is a somewhat accurate image of the Arma community.
By the way, in case you want to check this out for yourselves.
>We are a multinational milsim unit
>4 UK, 1 SA
This is their leader by the way.
You know I am trying to find a group that beats that and already have a few contenders
http://archive.fo/dXmBI - this one is my personal favourite, three page recruitment form
>Why do you want to join <entity>?
This is my personal least favorite question of all time and I remember some Ivy League business school agreeing with me. If a person wasn't interested in something, they wouldn't have spent the time to fill it out and show up now would they?
you should be able to explain why it interests you then. Depending on the business its an important question because you want people more interested in the work then the paycheck.
If a gas station or walmart asks you these questions though they should go fuck themselves. Its just a shitty business trying to seem professional by emulating what they see more serious businesses do without understanding the context. Completely born from perceptions of face and their own ignorance.
In this case it's arrogance with a lot of Arma milsim groups heavily up their own arse. Still gives us some good shitpost material. Like this casual milsim group that even has their own shop:
Granted they are part of a larger group but fuck they are taking shit a little far.
>must give a donation to server
That's not a donation? Also what language is that? Dutch?
>You must donate in order to join
Interestingly back during the late 90s and early 2000s it used to be common for most clans to have a standing claim you'd be ask to pay up to help pay for hosting the server. As far as I know nobody ever did enforced it so it was pointless. I think it originated with the Unreal community.
Looks German which figures they would be the only ones autistic enough to try it and cucked enough to pay.
Could be Austrian. They're usually more cucked than Germans.
It is a fair to ask for donations to help cover server costs.
However when you start asking for "mandatory donations" it's not really a donation is it?
It's a Dutch group.
Really getting out of hand.
You're not wrong, it's one of those questions in spirit that has well meaning to it but more often than not ends up in arrogance and brown nosing. I've been asked that question numerous times, and it made sense for some places to ask it while others it felt more like an insult.
Isn't that against Arma and most mods TOS?
I used to dislike the arma community, now I just simply hate it.
The shop is largely created and maintained by the "Operations" people (weird fucks who dont even play videogames there anymore). Arma is a small part of TAW, with 77 members, out of the whole 1960.
Make Sure You Download the New Mod
Same time as always, 10AM AEST
Mad Max: Armoured Warfare Edition
Respawns are down to 20 seconds rather than 60 and you now respawn at base, rather than on your body. At base there is a finite pool of vehicles and weapons. Minimum 2 players per armoured vehicle, no rules for light vehicles or artillery. The selection of vehicles is pic related.
This game will be autistic, I want you all to realize this going in. I estimate there'll be a complete breakdown in command, control and communications about 30 seconds in and that's fine because it'll still be cool rolling through africa with tanks
this a new game for flip-phones?

What the hell? Is Arma trying to win the most autistic community award?
The arma (((community)))
But to be honest most dudes are cool if you're not on a milsim or life/exile/survival survival server.
Jesus christ could they not have found a better presenter?
what the fuck is this shit
what did I expect
He says it no non-nonchalantly too that it bothers me. This is probably some manlet under drinking age calling himself a Sergeant First Class. This is exactly what >>89927 talks about with the problem with these people, they give themselves these big ranks over toys and video games.
I may or may not be on depending if I can get the forms filled out in triplicate and sent off in time.
If you're going to make it so there are no passenger vehicles at least use this mod.
Should add Mammoth Tanks as well so I can surf a Mammoth
Reminder to Download New Mod Map
You won't be able to play without it.

As always if there's something in particular you guys want to see in the missions, or if you want a go at being Zeus/squad leader, just let me know
So where are juicy stories? I want to hear more now.
What do you want to hear about anon? Also I really need to do those webms at some point.
Here is the first batch of the webms of last weekend's Arma 3.
Christ that last batch of webms did not want to post.
What the fug is with the go karts?
>Fags don't switch off vehicles when not in use
>Wonder why they can't understand each other
Why do niggers do this?
So is Arma 3 just ausfags sitting around shitposting with one another or something?
Arma has paid mods now?
Where have you been for most of this thread?
Long story. It was a shitpost that turned into a running joke.
>Launching missiles at a single hangar
I see someone is referencing Syria.
>Private, why do you need 30 rounds of subsonic ammunition?
<Need to file paperwork to request change of uniform
>Need to file a ticket with the clan in order to use a slightly different tan vest than the tan vest they issued and hope it's accepted or a uniform with your HIGHLY DECORATED MEDALS
<Need to file paperwork to request change of squad
>Need to file a ticket with the clan in order to be allowed to play with different people
<Need to file a ticket for an incident report
>Basically meaning if the "NCO" doesn't approve of your shit you're given a warning kid despite the best squads being chaotic order
<Need to submit a ticket for a mission idea
>But only if you're part of the Mission Maker department of the clan, fuck you otherwise
I feel like any of these tryhard clans would have a heart attack for a uniform request over the typical anon squads. Mismatching uniforms with mismatching equipment ranging from Cheeki Breekis with no armor and a Ugandan AK to high tech exotic units armed with fancy rifles and armor strong enough to solve the missing link between tank and infantry.
>play SS13 hop
>make anyone who comes to my desk to get an ID change sign 800 forms and drown them in sheer walls of bureaucracy until they give up, suicide at my desk, or try to lynch me (and then kill them)
>read this thread
>you can make milsim autists sit through a 20 minute interview to play fucking videogames.
We need to figure out how to harvest autism as a more potent energy source than nuclear fusion.
You sound like a fag that would make these milsim autists moist.
What's hilarious is that the tryhard clans you speak of don't know that the way anons play is usually how it goes down in real life.
You mean the part where any semblance of things like "spacing" or "marching" or whatever these twits call moving around falls through the floor the moment bullets start flying?
Well they spend so much time milsim'ing they spend not enough time learning to fight.
Have you fags got anymore juicy stories?
Even better. The missing link between infantry and armor.
This game should be a little more serious than last. I've limited your weapons selection to third-world-tier and you've got a limited supply of vehicles, ammo and weapons in general. Objectives are straight forwards and simple, most of the fighting will be on foot across the African countryside
Race to try and set everything up before it starts because I'm a dummy.
Will there be Kung Fu?
Nevermind looks like the Arma 3 launcher still shits the bed for me, 3 years, three PC's.
Well I once beat a whole Milsim group by consistently eliminating their CO with the equvialent of a bunch of drunken Serbs.
So business as usual then?
>Expecting Arma to work
Anon are you surprised?
With how much fuckery I was dealing with just trying to play vanilla a couple days ago, no.
But I like to dream.
You missing microsoft visual redistributes at all? Arma 3 requires a considerable amount but does a poor job telling you which ones.
Yeah, tried reinstalling all of them but no luck.
Got the mods working I think, jumped into the server and nothing exploded, just teamspeak telling me I have the wrong version now.
>Teamspeak telling me I have wrong version
Yeah don't go past 3.1.0

Sorry friends, I've got a busy weekend ahead and won't be able to play Arma unfortunately. It is slightly possible plans may change, but I'll post here if they do. Otherwise, no game this weekend
I probably wouldn't worry about it. Think fags are doing a BF1918 gamenight this weekend in honor of 11/11. I can go another week without hearing from Aussie bantz.
>Used a pencil
Are you John Wick?
Never mind, I realized that was Benicio Del Toro after a couple of minutes.
It's the second Sicario movie if anyone else was wondering.
Game on Sunday 18th 10AM AEST
You know the drill
I'll get the nipple clamps.
Don't know if I will be around or not. Should I pack flip-flops regardless?
Bleeding to death in Chechnya.
Good times all around.
Where's your Priest?
The priest couldn't make it there, but I will make sure we get a Battle Chaplin for next session.
I was spreading the gospel through cannon fire.
Where is our Sunday Service Thread Priest?
Hope you guys enjoy playing as the dirt farmers armed with sharp rocks, because it's Taliban simulator time @ 10AM AEST Sunday
If I start one you better damn well attend under pain of artillery fire!
Are we finally getting rideable Goats?
Maybe next taliban sim, we shouldn't be just wearing fatigues to avoid happy accidents.
So I missed this due to some unexpected radicalness. Tell me a story anons.

I doubt we will ever get the player numbers.
Who cares when we can drift Shermans across the Rhine?
I haven't been around for this as of late as I have been too busy with missionary work.
Should do a Winter themed Arma event this Christmas period.
No game unfortunately as something has come up last minute, apologies but that’s how it goes
Battle of the Bulge?
This kind of works out fine for me. I got a call last minute that I am needed tomorrow so I wouldn't be able to play.
Turns out the new Warlords game mode is a heap of fun and I'll be running it next week.
If no one objects I'll be putting the server to vanilla + TFAR radios. Warlords is built around vanilla atm (I'm sure mods could change that) but right now I just want to drop all the junk and just use TFAR and CBA as it is a requirement for TFAR
Did that happen in Australia or something?
What is it like? Is it worth reinstalling for?
I had a lot of fun tbh, just wholesome vidya fun which for me is rare because I’m turbo autismo. Given that you won’t need all the mods, and just the game plus 250mb of mods, I’d say it could be worth it.
If you mean the pic, then no, Australia doesn’t have an ongoing conflict and the Emus cannot operate mortars. Syria does tho.
If you mean the game, then yeah it was Aus time because I had my Sunday night free and just played with some Aus guys. But that’s like 4am for burgers so I didn’t post an announcement.
In any case, we’re back to our regular schedule next week, 10AM AEST Sunday
That's just CTI though?
Warlords = CTI with a professional finish
It's got a nice smooth interface, no glitches or strange behaviour, controls the AI well (we even got counter attacked and pushed off a captured point) and generally just plays well.
Last week we had only 4 players and it was a heap of fun so I'm super keen to see 8 or so players on because everyone can play to their own strengths, whether that be armour, heli, infantry or support.
Well should be fun. Also noticed they added the P90 as a vanillia weapon wonder why they didn't do it in the first place to be honest?
>Adding content to Arma
But then that would mean they are releasing a full game?
I wouldn't mind the DLC if they didn't have retarded connection issues after over a half decade of development. The thing is, this bug disappeared for about a year and they recently decided to revive it. Maybe their next DLC will be "you can now play coop with your friends again".
It will require a whole new DLC pack before such a fix can come out.
Game in 11 hours 45 minutes
(10AM AEST - No daylight savings)
We doing blufor or opfor?
ooga booga where da warlords at
Well that was interesting.
Minus the bug that stopped me teleporting REEEEEEE
So what was warlords like?

I am partly curious what you do and what timezone you are. Because depending on your answer could imply you are a callgirl
I was thinking of playing myself but the server distance is too great for me. I was trying to find a public server to squat on that I think anons would enjoy but honestly a lot of them are terrible. Thought I found one but then I encountered a lot of Rule 1 and 2 breaking fags from cuckchan /k/ who were /k/ringey as fuck to play with.
Let me guess, 77th JSOC server?
Might see if I can rustle up a few friends together and maybe see if we can put up a server again. How do you feel about a Portuguese server anon?
You didn't happen to run shitposting over Takistan did you?
I have two options for this coming game and I wanted some Anons to weigh in on them:
As explained above, a Bohemia released game mode of Capture the Island with a professional polish and randomly generated firefights. Pretty arcade like and simple to play.
A Zeus controlled game focusing on a foot patrol across Altis to enforce border sovereignty and intercept border crossings from irregular combatants who cross the border to conduct IED and sniper attacks before crossing back to friendly territory.
Is there a mod that lets me temporarily hand over squad control to an AI member and take it back whenever I want? Would like to play more as a marksman in DRO but its a pain in the ass to micromanage the AI at the same time since "Engage at will" alone has its limits, mostly in urban areas.
Just assign your ai a move order and they will do all the work for you
I do that but it feels more like a bandaid, I often have to send them halfway back because they missed something or they run right infront of a truck with a HMG and all die. AI squad leader would mitigate atleast the last and maybe the first issue since it throws out more detailed target and engage commands in quick succession.
I do not know of a mod that works without bugging out halfway through
Drongo's Command Enhancement allows this.
Its also buggy as shit
Are Armafags still alive?
Kind of. There was a 500mb update last night that takes 500 minutes to install for whatever reason so could not show.
>Light brown secondary color for uniform
I think there are bigger issues than that if I am honest. Like having a standard issue service rifle over 11lbs that shoots a joke round
Is that gun literally held together by duct tape?
Yes. Can't have Tommy being equipped with things he needs now can we?
Looks like medical strapping tape.
Honestly pretty useful for grunt-rigging things.
I'd hazard he's trying to cover as much of the black metal surface as he can safely.
Was that really facebook?
In this case I'd say it's more due to keeping the gun held together with sheer willpower alone.
What, you don't want every military force to look the same?
Looks to me something done in order to camouflage the gun (pic 5) rather than actually it being held together by tape. I mean it's an L85A2 so it shouldn't be absolutely shit tier.
>Go to all that effort to break up outline and blend in with snow
>Still use olive backppacks and rigs
Who are these clowns? Finns?
>L85 shouldn't be absolute shit tier
Oh sweet child if you only knew the half of what was going on.
Anyway is Arma still running or do I need to schedule a tenis tournament?
Is this some sort of broken tennis?
It's tennis but with a lot more bullying.
Technically speaking, Tennis has plenty of bullying as it is. I like that Mario Aces built an entire system out of bullying the opponent.

When is the next gamenight?
Server is borked and will require a rebuild. This will involve about 6 hours of work and I’m not sure I can really be bothered due to low player count, not to sound salty or anything, I don’t expect people to play if they don’t want to or anything, but there’s not point sinking time and money if I only have like 3 players, may as wel use a public warlords server and ditch the Zeus aspect.
Just respond to this post if you guys are still interested in Zeus games at the regular time
I am still interested.
Missed the last couple of weeks though.
My shift patterns have changed so I haven't been exactly able to go on. I am interested though in still playing but I can understand why bother with server if you can just use a Warlords one.
If you want to play, I could throw you my server for the weekend. The only stipulation is It's a WW2 server.
6 hours of Poland?
If you want, it could be 12 hours of Poland.
Will we have one tonight? If so I'll be there
I'll be there, just update the thread when it's on.
We'll do it in four this time.
Are we doing anything tonight?
I was kidnapped by Joel, so I have to reschedule blank hours of Poland for next week. Gives me some time to try and find a new gamemode potentially.
I have used this morning to work out the basics of the server, and look up some gamemodes.
What front do fags want to play on, and with what faction?
Where we go establish Freedom Burger Franchises around the Middle East? Why isn't your pic a shitpost gamemode where you construct such buildings?
>Oh sweet child if you only knew the half of what was going on.
W-what's going on? Did the new L85 shit the bed again?
If you're saying that it drops magazines, didn't the A2 fix that? The one in the pics is clearly an A2.
Isn't the new Bong rifle meant to be a hybrid between the Aug and L85?
Please tell me that's not a real gun.
Drifting round the Ardennes?
They are trying to unfuck it by essentially throwing shit at a wall and seeing what sticks, trying hard to detract that UK is totally not admitting their service rifle is a joke and quietly replacing it with the C8. Supposedly this is a single lb lighter than the previous model which still makes it around 10lbs, though knowing MoD I would not be surprised if it ends up being over 20lbs.
Simply put, pretty much yeah. It's supposed to only add a full rail and change the receiver but I suspect more changes will be coming.
I kind of want to see if anyone can spot the flaws of this rifle from just this side.
Anyway, are fags playing Arma or what?
Why can't Bongs make guns?
It's because there isn't nowhere near as big of a gun economy like there is in America, which means less R&D for guns as a whole meaning when they have to design one they have no clue how to make a good gun.
UK used to have a vibrant and top quality arms industry where they produced everything from guns to warships that was considered second to none. Then NATO happened and it pretty much killed off their small arms industry cause Burgers had a hissy fit. Still, they at least had the FAL. Then in the late 70's Bongs decided for whatever reason that they don't want to have an arms industry anymore but in the 80's they wanted to replace the FAL and felt they could do it themselves despite not really having any experience making small arms in over 30 years despite Sterling, but for whatever reason they choose to ignore them and wondered why things didn't go quite as planned.
You know if we do ever manage Arma ever again we probably should add the L85A3 as a meme gun now. Just so everyone can share in the
A quick check shows that Aegis mod has it so it would not be impossible.
Yeah but it has some rather unique problems that I probably should post at some point. You also don't want to look at the dev for that mod
What is wrong with the dev? Another tranny?
Here is the L85A3 from Aegis Mod by the way
Can you figure out what is wrong with it yet?
Is the problem the fact it's from 1986?
Well production didn't really kick off heavily till 1986 if that's what you are saying.
So if you ever wanted to know why I can't take milsim fags seriously. Here it is in a nutshell.
Careful lads! We got a bonified badass here! He's been running numerous secret raids behind enemy lines and must have over 300 confirmed kills!
>Windows 10 Pro
>Lists his fucking lights
>Furry who has a gore fetish
Is this a walking meme?
I have no words
Why is the Arma Community like this?
"Realistic" military games in general attract a lot of wannabe spec ops faggots, and the more "realistic" the game is, the more autistic the players.
>All that training
Is that real training or Arma training?
What do you think anon?
You get two guesses.
>Finally get some free time again
>Fix Arma 3 install
ya blew it
That server might be dead, but you're in time for 6 Hours of Poland 2: Blitz Harder likely next week.
This shit lasts forever, literally, once both teams get to the airfield around gravia and telos (or somewhere around there) the game just turns into a meat grinder.
Is there any solo/coop mod that turns player characters into a one man army ? I realize that it's really not what the game was made for and would probably be fucking terrible but I'm still curious.
ravage mod by Haleks.
>Getting any kind of performance or support without windows 10
yeah, nah, get fucked.
Thanks friend, I'll try that
So tl;dr version of Arma news
>Devs are working on more DLC that apparently involves Thai Lady Boys
>Devs are working on a brand new game engine
>Blah blah community circle jerk
>Blah blah mods
>Blah blah Warlords
So how do you fags prefer news around here, long and hard or short and sweet?
>New game engine
Are pigs flying?
They call every iteration of the OFP engine a "new game engine".
If they make a new game they might as well just make it RHS in Kebabahstan since that's all anyone seems to want to play.
Do you think the future will ever catch up to technology we had over a decade ago?
Unsure considering it's always 1986, 2005, and 2012 simultaneously.
I'd love for some Cold War action.
Think it is more than you have 3 options when playing with the Arma Community anon, 1986 Soviet Afghanistan, 2005 US Afghanistan, or 2012 Iraq.
This, but if you play pretty much any simulator in general and not only Arma it's set in those time periods.
The best of these is Soviet 1986 Afghanistan more so when you get some Slav shitposting going on.
What about that Gaylo Mod?
That is early 26th century, the Gaylo page says from 2513-2524. First Contact takes place before Harvest which was 2525, so OPTRE is likely the time period of 2524-2525.
You mean Millennial Mod?
>Arma 3 news
>Some community spotlight
>Nothing but advertising Spaniards.
So Bongs hired Bohemia Interactive to make a VR game for them.
How long till VR Arma?
You'll probably need a loicense to own that software, similar to that columbine simulator the burgers have since last year.
Speaking of which, what happened with that anon who tried to fetch a copy back on /v/, did he deliver?
How long till Arma 3 is completed is the question?
I think he was shot. I think he was actually kicked out of the army if it is the one I was thinking of
So is it safe to assume Arma hostfag is dead, eaten by an Emu?
You've got the wrong Bohemia Interactive.
>eaten by an Emu
Come to think about it, Australia has been quiet lately. Have the Emus finally taken over?
He's not really. They are both the same company.
but we're still taking Poland soon r-right guys?
We could storm Normandy at high tide again?
More than likely we will end up doing a naval invasion of Switzerland at this rate.
I haven't forgotten about doing a Arma night, the problem is I've been extremely busy lately dealing with various bullshit that has some up the past week and a half. I should have better free time later this week or next week.
wew I only just now noticed the IDs
>It ain't me plays
/vg/ is tainted by the warp, how have you not known this?
Are you drug smuggling anon? Or is it worse?
ARE YOU READY TO INVADE POLAND?
This Saturday, join me in the one and only 8chan special event:
6 HOURS OF POLAND 2: BLITZKRIEG BOOGALOO
Want to play? Here's the mods you'll be required to have. Additional mods are on the server, but subscribing to them is your choice.
>CUP Terrains - Core: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=583496184
>Iron Front Arma 3 ACE Compatibility Patch: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=773759919
Server name: Infinity Liberation 1944
Server IP and Port will be posted when the server opens.
>Just IFA3 Lite
So we will have no weapons or vehicles then?
There are weapons and vehicles, just the standard issue stuff though, no special wunderbar wunderwaffles for 1944 period German meatgrinders.
>Not adding the rest of the mod
>Other mods add wunderbar wunderwaffles
Shows how little you know. If anything all they do is heavily flesh out allies and include factions such as Nips, Frogs, Itals, Bongs and Magyars.
>Gamemode is just Russia vs Germany
>IFA3 Lite is Russia vs Germany
>"You need to install more mods to flesh out the allies and add more factions"
If you had to download an expansion for each faction on top of it, we'd be downloading all day instead of playing.
What is wrong with you?
Was going to say the mods anons outlined are desgined with IFA3 functionality in mind to the point they are considered essential which makes me wonder why nobody hasn't done an all in one yet
This weekend I hope? I'm unavailable during the week.
Horses don't really work since dev never bothered to finish them
I'm shooting for somewhere around 2pm EST/7pm GMT/11pm AEST.
Horses don't work so good, nor are they compatible with the current mission. I have a surprise replacement to make up for the horses though.
Who we playing as so I know who to LARP as?
>Hungarian Firefighters washing away the stink of Communism
I like the idea.
Something went wrong in testing.
>so many useless mods
>lists 5 mods needed
>actually needs a dozen more
They're compatibility patches, they'll take up maybe 15MB extra compared to the ones I already posted.
>no html file
Learn to use the launcher.
thats a pretty thicc compatibility patch
>Already posted in >>116914
>still no html file
>have to right click and save link as html file
Never trust a fucking leaf.
theres ace compatibility patches but no ace, are we using it or not.
So summary of what is wrong with server so far
>Chat doesn't work
>ACE is supposedly installed but isn't
What's the next step in the master plan?
Liberation ACE has ACE already in it.
GG faggots, had to leave early something came up.
Couple of notes for hostfag:
>WW2 in Arma blows, don't be like minecraft hostfag. The engine is designed for platoon-level engagements MAX, when you clog it up with 400 AI running about, even with multiple headless clients and a super computer for a server it will lag. Do smaller ops and it would be more fun overall. IMO of course, I'll play anything though
>IF YOU'RE GOING TO RUN ACE FOR FUCK SAKES ENABLE HAND GESTURES ENHANCED MOVEMENT AND ACE POINT
>You're a nigger.
Hopefully this doesn't die by tomorrow because I want to play more.
>Beat Poland in 4 hours this time
It would have been 3 if we hadn't been stuck searching for Anne Frank.
Since you guys finished 6 hours in Poland in less time plus it being late at night, I have decided to use the same modlist and do the Australian invasion of Greece. Unlike flat, open Poland Greece requires a bit more maneuvering and the like.
Done for the night but have some webms
This post is intended for any Australians showing up or night owls, the server IS still up for tonight. It's a different map with different objectives so it should be something to do still.
>No connections all night
I'll keep it up the rest of today though just in case people want to play.
Might also be something to do with the fact that (((Steam))) has been down most of the night and today.
Fighting against the Axis in this is boring as shit thanks to Wehraboos making Germany look like a bunch of inept retards.
Cause Germany totally couldn't fight if it didn't have six gorillion Tiger Tonks in every village to stave off the Allied hordes.
So anons up for "Make Love, Not Arma?"
Best Valentines day event ever.
So is Arma officially dead to anons?
no, everyone has just retreated back to their own group of friends until the next hostfag comes alonge
But you don't get to bring friends?
Did you fags bully another hostfag away?
So is this the end of Arma?
Invidious embed. Click thumbnail to play.
>This video was linked across Facebook by Pajeets who thought it was real
I have no words.
>Japanese Navy 2019 Exercises
The fact it didn't flip hundreds of km's into the air is progress.
That's just a "tactical shirt". The area that is light brown is meant to be underneath a protective vest/carrier anyways, so adding camo there isn't necessary.
The SA80A2 is actually not that bad. At least it works compared to the SA80 and SA80A1.
Probably nah. Duct tape over metal surfaces is pretty common thing to do.
You go ahead and buy the same old backpack and rig you already own for 500$ each just in a different colour.
While it's not ideal a white painters suit is cheap and disposable. I would suggest these fags to wrap their backpacks in white bedsheets or whatever, but there is nothing you can do about the rig.
Also: painting some green dots or stripes onto that suit could work out well.
You didn't mount iron sights?
>The area that is light brown is meant to be underneath a protective vest/carrier anyways, so adding camo there isn't necessary.
It's actually a different, moisture wicking material.
It's CBRN repair tape, commonly known as sniper tape. The lad's put it over a few cooling ports to reduce stoppages from grime & dirt.
Also looks like he's coated this downgrip & cheek rest for comfort/grip.
Well Arma 3 update. 1.90 http://archive.fo/LhtO1
Adds a bunch of "improvements" to Warlords along with some security features which supposedly make the game take even longer to load.
>making Arma3 perform worse
Armafags will defend this.
>finally added spawn protection
>didn't fix any of the underlying issues with warlords
Not sure what I expected.
>The SA80A2 is actually not that bad.
Except that weights around 13lbs without a lot of shit attached to it.
But will they ever finish the game? Cause the devs have a habit of chasing a fad, adding some incomplete shit to the game, getting bored, forgetting about it and then moving onto the next thing.
