Just a reminder that we're playing Iron Front on Saturday. We're still waiting to play adlab's new mission. Here's a reminder. link

C'mon, players (new and old), join us and let's have a proper turnout.

Also, be aware, we're starting at 4PM Eastern Daylight Time. The US moved one hour forward last week. Check when it starts for you, if you're not time changed already. http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html

Nice missions today, but brutal. Not enough players to do adlabs mission. Come on, guys. frown

In any event, here are some screenshots. http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/3752204/SimHQ_Iron_Front_Saturday_03_1#Post3752204

Today was a fun session, but indeed brutal. I think some of the shortage of players early on was due to the time changes.

Some good missions in there, the Night time atmosphere was great with the burning wrecks and the flare pistol. Should set up some other missions like that. Also got in some Arma 3 mp after thanks to TigerWolf. Is it me or is the foliage and general terrain better looking in IF than Arma 3 alpha?

has anyone tried to port these maps to arma 3 yet .... I know Tao got chruno running


Dont think of it as being vastly outnumbered ... but just having a large target selection.

The only thing more accurate than incoming fire, is incoming friendly fire

Tracers work BOTH ways...

I may fool with it sometime. I got Cherno running too, but it's not the cleanest. Also going to look at some of the maps from the ONE set.

And yes Fudge, I think IF is (or can be) about the best looking I've seen any Arma engine.

I only just realised that with IF and Arma 3 I spent just about 6 hours solid playing as we didn't finish till about 2am!

I think it is mainly the foliage that give IF it's edge, but the buildings are also rather nice and the landscape is varried.


As for porting the maps into Arma 3 I copied the DLC folder across and renamed all the .ifa to .pbo and was able to drive across a barren landscape. Didn't get the units to work, and there were some visual glitches and missing objects. Obviously there will be legal issues, so can't see us playing them online in arma 3.

Would be cool if BI could work out a way to use the content like ToH Reloaded used A2 content.
