I just got the permission, to port psychobastards Evolution to IF. Yay...
He probably doesn't want the grief from people posting bugs about the ported version to him, which will invariably happen. However I have been working on something that generates missions over the map for you to do (can have multiple ones active at once) but without town conquering within Take on helicopters and A2, and am probably going to use it for some IF missions too.
My custom missions:

[EVO] Multigaming Clan is recuiting at www.evoclan.net
Evo would be soo nice - ill host a server for that one for sure...
2 x Nvidia gtx780-SLI
Intel 160gb + 250gb ssd
16gb DDR3 1600MHz ram
Dedi Server: (188.8.131.52)

I can understand the reluctance to port to A3 as, for me, it's a bit to "future weapons" but it would have been nice to see Xeno's work in IF. His coop missions were also really fun.
But it is his work.
I do however think clones will start to appear fairly soon. They may not be as optimised but they will appear.
Anyway, I look forward to seeing what the community comes up with. (and I still have OA for Dom)
Some of my new and old 3d work
Orlock this is Iron Front were talking about not Arma3, its WW2 here no futures weapons in WW2.
well if Hitler had some his inventions produced that were made they would have had been futuristic for the time period.
I think we need missions specific to the type of war were fighting, i mean what would be practical in a realism sense,
not realism per say but based on how they fought in WW2 on the eastern front.
More manual missions, as doing halo, and having teleport, and such things isn't practical if were aiming for the period type fighting,
so I could see a Domination, an Evo, maybe an insurgency, or others stripped down to be more true to what had to be done to kill the enemy.
that of course is just one way of looking at it.
I know that I think my sentiments dont translate well. I know no modern weapons are in IF
I was under the impression that Xeno wasn't a fan of the "Future weapon" scenario in A3 and he didn't want it ported there.
But as he says earlier in his post, he does'nt want to see it on any other RV engine.
Someone give him beer and convince him otherwise.
My hope is to get to play it in Warfare type of game mode.

Perhaps wanting a replica of pre existing missions in IF is the wrong way to think about this.
Not all of the missions directly translate into IF due to things like lack of helicopters, resistance units, vehicles suitable as MHQ etc in IF.
I think what we are after is a mission in the CTI/Dom/Evo/Dynawar/etc spirit and perhaps we should turn our collective minds to coming up with ideas that a seasoned map maker can work with.
