This game plays nice in 3rd person with a controller..
Cue tidal wave of posts telling you controllers are not allowed in pc gaming...
This is a good game.. I can sense endless possibilities with it..
Although I find it extremely hard to play. I don´t see the enemies, just see and ear gun fire everywhere...
This could had an "arcade" mode like it would point were the enemies are!
This is the main reason why I´ve stopped playing Arma 1 / 2 and 3... I´m just there watching the AI playing if you know what I mean..
You've got to move slow and check out the entire area before moving up. Don't rush forward, stick with a group of guys and let each one leapfrog until contact.
The point´s that when there´s contact I can´t see where the enemies are!!!
"100m front men" bla bla *looking*... Where the hell is him!??!
You need the X52 Series joystick in order to get the best flight controls. I have to settle for using the Keyboard and Joystick and even then it can be quite difficult. Problem is I don't have a way of binding the free look controls.
TBH you need to plan your heading, speed, altitude and drop point before lift off. Try and avoid using the auto balance feature... I rarely need to use it unless im flying the Ghost Hawk or the Independents chopper.
See who's talking, look where he is, then open the compass and take the direction and distance to easily find the local area where the enemy is.
Don't forget, the enemy wears camo too.
More info and a few new images.
The next patch should be out soon, meanwhile the development branch got a update that added UAV drones. - http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?149636-Beta-Development-branch-changelog/page11
(That I have no idea how to operate but it was fun toying with them.)
LOL at the drones.
The big one looks like a Predator and a HARPY had a bastard child. The one with four big blades is actually based on a real one which in real life is tether and is basically a floating camera above a base or installation. The small black one got its inspiration from a PARROT drone.
The small black drone in the fourth image if that is what you meant is simply the drone from the third image after I attempted to use it.
(Come to think of it since this game has mod support and it is a game I would really like to fit a massive cannon on such a device, that M61 Vulcan for example.)
Update for development version:
Awesome island from what I've checked so far, way more demanding than Stratis though.
EDIT: Some simple environment images via the camera function of the editor.
That map is huge. I used the UAV and went sight seeing
Update for Development version
New content update, vehicles weapons and some other stuff.
(The recent optimizations has also made Altis much more playable, I don't notice any stuttering now.)
Aw man, i need to have my PC finished asap, need to play that map!
Ummm....they are missing the rear radar panels on the Merkava 4M derivative.
Today is the last day you can get ArmA 3 before release. On release, the price will go up.
