and in Arma we have much much much smaller addonmaking manufactory than it was for OFP
we have much smaller variety, but even in those small variety we have doubled, tripled and even more of the same addons
people are working on for example LAV-25, okay... this shown on picture belowe was released few months ago:
base of body is Wilco OFP addon with permission, on posted screens i saw the same elements from OFP but not improved yet
so we will have 2 LAVs soon, but, do we have any M109 ? do we have any MiG21, MiG23 do we have Leopard ?
even if something was released close to realism I saw people who work on less real "but their own" (it is not about LAV now what i told, it's about other addonmaker who plans to release not realistic and wrong addon saying "who cares" if it is not realistic)
in my opinion, community instead of saying "wooow" seeing sixth' version of AK, should ask "we wanna see something that was not released yet" or if released addon is not realistic
for example like we had with some weapon addons in which there was mistake between model and real weapon
or to improve old ones
i am not here to call someones work worthless, but to say "we lack of many things but addonmakers spend their time to do something what is already made"
is someone work on Leopard tanks for Arma 1 ?? cause as far as I know , few famous and great mods wait for Arma 2 :]
of course you can cryticize me that i only defend my work, but i really miss M109, Leopards and BMP3 and BTR60 and good WW2 soldiers, better WW2 weapons, maybe WW1 mod
but even if i asked about cooperation for Project 85 mod, people wanted to offer something that was already made by 2 other addonmakers, i had four offers of PK, AK... but i had no offer of BTR60 , Leopard or like this
or maybe community is satisfied with A_ak pack addon, B_ak pack addon, C_ak pack addon, D_ak pack addon, e_ak pack addon and than if 5 mission makers will do 5 mission, in every mission there is different addon, than you will have to download 5 addons packs not compatible to each other
and Maza - you were wrong in saying about Beryl fire selector, you showed vests not used in Polish army or showed German vest, you were asking about Polish T-80, you were denying using steel helmets in Polish army, you really have no knowledge about our army , if you say that Beryl fire selector was on right side of weapons like AK, while in real ***it is only safety-switch , we never had T-80 used by our army, and you make uniform in wrong colour and wrong cut of pockets
if _94 is date of your birth, than in 1993 i had RAK and P64 first time in my hands, and in 1996 i had Tantal rifle in my hands and PKM and RPG during scouting
you have it grey, not sand, i have not perfect colours too, but i wait on Yaciek improvements
even if had something top-realistic, you were saying it is wrong ;]
now i am telling what is wrong
what type of vest you use on your addon, please tell specification name, cause it is not type-KLV, type-OLV, what type of vest you do ? how is it called and who is manufacturer of this vest ?
you have pockets like on thick green uniforms, not like on ripstop
