Well that sums my thoughts up pretty much. I just hope they'll include all the bugfixes we've seen recently in Arma2, like on the AI or performance front.
Other than that, a native 64-bit exe would do arma a world of good, since then it could acces much more memory. And No game needs memory more desperately than Arma.
Frankly the modifiable weapons part is great, especially when it comes down to Planes and helicopters. Needing a seperate Aircraft for a different weapons loadout is bad. I mean coming from a Flight sim that always bugged me.
The Anti-Material Rifle being Anti-material is good, it was always kind of strange when you shot at a truck and could only disable it by shooting it's tires, never the engine. It would be good if we get a real penetration model, especially for tank combat. Also it would be really good to get something like the CITV and the IVIS for the tanks. The CiTV is just better than the CROW. I hope we'll get Night vision sights for the sniper rifles, I don't like the thermal ones to much, and I hate that the L-115A3, my favourite Rifle, doesn't has a NV-scope.
Yeah but I'm cautiously hopeful for Arma 3, even if it feels somewhat of an upgrade instead of a full new game. On the upside though, all Bohemia games have been good on the gameplay for money value.
