  MCAGCC 29 Palms terrain by phaeden Addon release    


phaeden has released his MCAGCC 29 Palms (Public Beta) terrain on the BI Forums.

I am happy to finally announce a BETA version of my MCAGCC 29 Palms terrain.
...
This terrain is based on the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center base in California. I have been working on this terrain/buildings since 2007
...
Please, please, please, keep in mind that this is a BETA – I know it is not complete. There are still known issues with the terrain and the buildings (such as bushes on roads, an occasional telephone pole sticking through a building, the damage values and rates of building destruction (they currently just disappear from existence when destroyed) and the AI not taxiing properly at the main airfield.) Additionally, most of the buildings are not as complete as I would prefer. Some of the buildings are still very basic.

Please note that this is not a 1-to-1 direct translation of real world to game. There are differences. The overall “feel” is representative of the real base but I’ve taken creative license and added and removed some things to either improve gameplay or keep me from going insane. For example, I have created a lot of custom buildings but I have not created (or even attempted to create) every type of building found on the base or in the nearby civilian areas. You will also quickly note that the buildings are not the most detailed or prettiest buildings around. This was done intentionally to keep the poly count low so you can increase the number of buildings and the draw distance without a drop in frame rates.
...
The island is generally comprised of several areas:

* towns and residential areas
- about half of the developed areas are based on real locations and aligned with satellite imagery
- the other half is fictional but also based on real town layouts
- there is also a large “desert” residential area in the southwest area of the map based on real data
* military training areas
- includes realistic buildings and layouts (MOUT)
- firing ranges
* airfields (ranging from very large and well developed to simple, single strips)
* mountains and hills
* flat areas

Again, my overall goal is to provide players with a lot of space that can be used for combined arms combat. I am hopeful that with all the amazing mission makers and dedicated teams, people will be able to have some truly awesome experiences on the terrain. With the low poly buildings and incredible view distances, I am hoping that truly unique missions are even more possible than with most/many other islands available (there’s nothing like calling in CAS that is flying at 1 mile up that can see the same target you see).

If you’re interested in helping to finish up the buildings, please just let me know. Most needed are people to help finish the actual models. Secondary would be help with improving the textures. All help is appreciated.

  PRADAR 1.2 by Blakeace Addon release    
blakeace has informed us about Blake's PRADAR (Player Radar) v1.2 release on the BI Forums.

... One of the things I found frustrating at times was my situational awareness, involving both my group members as well as my ability to interact with other groups effectively. The more visual clues that are available help reduce the critical communications channels to more important transmissions. Rather than the usual who's that or where are you etc. This was even more valuable to me when leading a group.

Knowing quickly where players are helps you to quickly issue orders more effectively. Espessially in time critical moments.
Using mods that highlighted names helped, but generally required you to focus your cursor over them. That is if you have one visible.
I like a minimal information display ideally, the more data presented constantly makes me feel more like a terminator visual interface than a basic grunt on the ground. Bright red names like neon signs really didn't help the immersion for me personally. ...

1.2
Added: Code to check if the name command is returning "Error: No unit"
Changed: Removed the large dot displayed of the players vehicle when the player was in that vehicle.
Added: A list that displays current players who are in the vehicle you are in if you hold space and don't have the cursor over any objects. It also lists their position in the vehicle.
Changed: Colour scheme for the lists. Personal lists e.g. Current vehicle occupants or current group loadout list are green with black text. Cursor lists which detail other vehicle occupants or a single units current loadout are displayed black with green text.
Changed: How closet units are found from nearestobjects to nearentities. This fixesthe issue where pausing occurs since the Arma 1.62 patch.
Added: Code to not display a label for one cycle of code if it is switching objects it is labelling.
Changed: Optimised the code more to help fix the Arma 1.62 patch issue.

  IJA Type 97 Chi-Ha + IJA Units (Hot Fix) by neoko2000 Addon release    
neoko2000 has submited an updated IJA Type 97 Chi-Ha Ver Fina WWII tank addon on our site. Imperial Japan units included in this release. ArmA2 : Combined Operations needed.

WW2 Imperial Japanese Army Type 97 Chi-Ha

The Type 97 Chi-Ha was a medium tank used by the Imperial Japanese Army during the Second Sino-Japanese War, at Nomonhan against the Soviet Union, and in the Second World War. It was the most widely produced Japanese medium tank of World War 2, although the armor protection was considered as average in the 1930s. The 57 mm main gun, designed to support the infantry, was a carry over from the 1933 Type 89 medium tank. Later it was replaced by 47 mm gun more effective against enemy armor.
The 170 hp Mitsubishi engine was a capable engine for the tank in 1938,it was a nonflammable diesel. After 1941, the tank was considered less effective than most Allied tank designs.
The Type 97's low silhouette and semicircular radio antenna on the turret distinguished the tank from its contemporaries.
The crude suspension was derived from the Type 95 Ha-Go light tank, but used six road wheels instead of four.

Ver Final + Hot Fix.
Added:Changed Late Ver Type97's Decal
Added: IJA Units.

Ver Final
Added:Changed RVmat.
Added: Late Version Chi-ha, Another camo Chi-ha.
