Thread: Altis - Info & Discussion

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Altis - Info & Discussion

    Please use this thread for any discussion about the soon-to-be-released island of Altis. I will endeavor to keep this post up to date with any official info that comes out.


    FAQ

    When will Altis become available?

    Altis is available right now on the dev branch.


    How will Altis affect performance compared to Stratis?

    As is the case with all larger islands, Altis comes with a framerate hit compared to Stratis.

    Your view distance probably plays the biggest role here. Even if you are able to run Stratis with 12k view distance, Altis will probably kill your framerate at this setting due to the significantly higher number of everything.

    Reducing your draw distance is the obvious solution.


    How big will the download be?

    ~2.5GB, perhaps more if you're switching from the main build.

    Try 36:40 or 37:15 onwards. It's not as dense as other cities, but it covers a huge area.

    Actually, it is pretty dense for the Armaverse and f-ing massive.

    I love it from what we've seen. Huge props to the devs, even though something new to ArmA like (Ant)arctic warfare would have been cool, Altis is IMO the most beautiful map I've seen so far. Maybe that will vary once we get our own view on it, but huge props to the devs!
    Greetings,

    I love the fact that you have so much variation. Mountains, flat land, cities, salt lagoon.

    I´m just hoping we see an airport up in the mountains, on of those airports that pinches your stomach a little bit.

    Thanks. Looks like there's no bigger cities, i.e. with bigger (office) buildings and office towers... but many of those small greek houses we already know from Stratis. But we will see.

    I think you are better served and should consider playing this in X-Plane or FSX, because flying in ArmA is just very simplified.

    Seems like devs have done everything to avoid huge buildings/skyscrapers like that in every ArmA, lol.

    Altis is awesome. the size and the variation is more than i ever dreamed of any game...

    does anyone know about the feature which was announced, that the houses furnishing can be affected (guess by script or module)?

    Except maybe International Hotel in Chernogorsk, but hey, it's just a huge brick
