    i wish its price was a bit lower. in my extended demo i kept being annihilated by enemy grunts, i could hope it's because one of the famous bohemia features but i'm not willing to discover i irremediably suck for full price.

    I wish they ported ArmA2, but I guess there is no hope for that.

    What's the take on Tanoa? I am considering getting into ARMA again, though I find these games a bit pointless (military shooters have no long term motivation to me) I really like the vastness of space available.

    Arma was on sale for 17.99€ beginning of July.

    You missed it.

    The map is amazing. Everything else is the same. New campaign is shit and AI is super retarded and not into jungle at all.

    I tried it and gave it back. While it runs really well on my computer the campaign is super dumb. I realized I would not enjoy playing it and refunded right away.

    The crazy stuff is MetalCraze is still bitching on theirs forums about losing licence because they removed support for private persons from certain stuff when they updated the program.

    He could stay there, we would at least appreciate his gossip from Ukrainistan.

    It's worth it for all the mods.

    None that I know of, but he was asking about Arma3 in general unless I misread his post.

    Edit:
    Looks like I did. Well fuck me.

    Eh, save your money then.

    Arma 3 Apex at -66% (20 Euro) http://store.steampowered.com/app/107410/Arma_3/

    Technically the 64 bit exe now runs like a charm. I also almost fell off my chair how crisp everything looks compared to games like Rising Storm 2.

    I am looking for mods that interest me, the US futurecrap certainly not. Is there something like i44? Has somebody tried the Iron Front conversion? What about Vietnam?

    Nothing like I44 in Arma3. Even Iron Front has been merely ported, and I've heard the balance is atrocious.

    :negative:

    Vietnam mods I don't know. The only worthwile mods are the Cold War gone hot ones, usual 80 tech.

    Cold war gone hot?? :bounce:
    Can you point me to the best places to look?
    Mind, I am interested in campaign mods. Mere collections of objects and units are not interesting.

    Cold War Crisis. I doubt you'll find the full campaign though, all MP mods.

    EDIT: Went by memory, dunnow if that's the correct name. Will check later.
