This thread is to determine the impression that the Arma2 modding community gives to new users of Arma2. Many long time users and others are aware that the game is greatly enhanced by user content. But many others also understand that there can be signifigant "overhead" to set up and use this user content. My focus is how the newcomers to this game feel about handling and using this user content as far as:
Ease of installation and use?
Compatibility with other content? (Conflicts or errors when combining different mods?)
Satisfaction with user content that was implemented successfuly into the users gaming experience?
So the title is apt. Are you (newbies?) happy with the user content of Arma2 to enhance the game? Are you willing to try user content if the default game is lacking somehow? When you go to use the user stuff, how do you look for it? How easy is it to set up and use (did you have to make some genius level guesses to make a mod work or were all instructions available?)
Finally, how satisfied were you with the user content once you had it implemented into your installation of the game?
The posts can be descriptive of user experiences, the target audience are new users to the game so veterans please respect that and hold back if the thread gets too "noob" for you.
I have started a poll to hopefully gain a good barometer of the new user experience of Arma2 and continue the thread from there. I may edit this first thread as time goes on or if I dont get enough responses.
So new users if you have something to say about your Arma2 enhanced with user content experience, this is your thread to speak out. I only ask that the tone of the thread be kept respectful so that the result of this discussion can be seen without the clutter of distractions like flames and OT comments.
