Snake Man from PMC has informed us about the release of the CAT Afghanistan v1.2 map ported to ArmA by PMC on our Forums.
This is Afghanistan terrain and objects addon from Operation Flashpoint ported into Armed Assault. Its a advanced port, several modeling errors were fixed, textures merged and models optimized as well as config tweaked. No content have been added (except terrain has no ocean now, ie this is a terrain, not an island) or removed. There are no soldiers or vehicles in this addon.
v1.2 includes long list of fixes, textures are now merged and models optimized for high performance. Most notable v1.1 bug where you could walk through objects have now been (hopefully) fixed.
Preview of featured mines in mod (still WIP). Mod includes 3 different type of mines, AT-mine (PSM36), AP-mine (Luhas trap) and pipemine. AT-mine requires vehicles track or wheel to go over the mine before it explodes.
Only visible part of mine is small part of cap which makes spotting harder to player driven vehicle. To make mine easier to spot in this video it is marked with orange smoke. There isn't much need to comment about AP-mine, video shows pretty clear how it is and works.
Pipemine tripwire lenght can be set by player since both sticks can be placed at will and their placement can be manipulated before arming the mine.
Also T-20 Komsomolets prime mover is model/texture-wise ready and in-game. Capable to tow AT-gun and artillery pieces (still to do) with weapon crew of 6 men. Original model by Wildo, redone by me
IceBreakr informed us that he has released a video of his Panthera Island.
After 6 hours of recording and mixing IceBreakr has released a presentation video, of Island Panthera for all those who don't have ArmA. Island will be upgraded to ArmA 2 soon after BIS releases official tools. Video is just over 5 minutes long and features a soundtrack of Slovenian punk-rock band Angee with a bit old but excellent track Sunbow.
This applications purpose is just to speed up the process of creating Visitor 3 Projects. You enter a name and it does the work. The application will create the specified folders and that tricky PBL file, also a readme will be left in each created folder that explains the purpose of the folder and the files that should be inside.
