Most likely this is the first and last release for A2. Expect the next one to be released for A3.

Awesome, we will finally try it :)

Congrats for the release of the demo!

The atmosphere on the map is fantastic.

Edit: I have a slim and tall vertical shadow in the center of Beketov.

We are looking for partner server, who help us throw a VTN-COOP-Party this weekend in the international community :)

Will play DAP's "Insurgency in Beketov", i think. With 20-30 slots. Will attend one of the authors, who will help to explain mod basics and answer some questions.

If your server is ready to participate - contact me via PM.

I have a slim and tall vertical shadow in the center of Beketov.

Never noticed this problem, will check it out. I think, this is some kind of graphic card glitch because of lot of objects. It appears in the city, or in the smaller villages too? Are you using the "VTN True color" module? Can you make a screen?

Looks and sounds very exciting.

Just curious tho, what does this mod aim to achieve? What is its main objective?

Is it an entire module overhauling the whole game like ACE or just a mod adding new features to the game?

Are we able to use this alongside other modules like AAW and FDF?

Certainly cant wait till my download finishes, thanks very much for the release guys.

Mission of this mod - is a believeable representation of the modern combined arms battle in the ArmA 3.

Is it an entire module overhauling the whole game like ACE

Our main difference from the other mods - is our orientation on the large-scale battles, not only Coops on the BLU4 side.

And as said above - VTN will overhaul the whole setting in the ArmA 3 to the modern one.

Are we able to use this alongside other modules like AAW and FDF?

VTN equipment system (i.e. dressing up and vest capacity :o) is not compatible with vanilla inventory. And, obviously, firearms will not be balanced.

Ot the other hand, of course, if you want to have a war between Finns and Chinese in the central-Russian island - you can do this, we can't stop the user's imagination :D

UPD The first post is updated with a torrent link.

Thanks for this mod.

I have had a good look around the terrain, its really great, performs well too, apart from one type of grass/corn/wheat (not sure) that seems to pull down performance a little, but no big deal.

There is a radar tower that seems too large (out of scale), can't remember where, will look again.

Anyway thanks very much for sharing this.:)

Version updated! Actual link is in the 1st post.

- Added bisigns to all Beketov pbos.

- Fixed MG belts on the BLU4 weapons.

- Some fixes in the medicine system.

- Some fixes in the "climb over" animation.

There is a radar tower that seems too large (out of scale)

Yes, the TV-tower is nearly 200% of size :)) This is a compromise to represent size of the typical provincial TV-tower.

In the full version for ArmA 3 we will replace this one with some sort of new greek towers.

So are the units replaced permanently or could i still use my replacement packs? Beautiful work btw

[[EDIT]]: Just going to be honest here, i'm not really liking this demo/mod the way it is right now. All of the default soldiers on both sides (Except for the US army and CDF and maybe the independents)are really glitchy and jumbled, they look like you combined all the units's textures and uniforms and gear and mixed them all together.

The "Ch-46" and" CH-53 aren't at all, they're the UH-60 seahawk and CH-47 Chinnok.

The animations were the #1 Killer for me. The jogging animations were fine in ArmA 2, why change them? Now i feel like i'm playing ArmA I or default OFP again and those animations were bad...

I know this is just a demo i just need to state my opinions on this mod right now.

You can try but equipment system won't work.

Did anyone encountered orange-faced soldiers? We receive reports about this glitch which we never saw before and we can't reproduce it.

sound like that old bug when ATi cards showed weird overly bright faces of people who had used the wrong texture format for their custom face.

Can we see a screenshot?

We replaced only USMC and RF MI with proper ones and added some units on independent side.

My guess you are using wrong version of arma (beta) or wrong version of CBA or both as you can see on screenshots above there is no problems with textures or gear.

The "Ch-46" and" CH-53 aren't at all, they're the UH-60 seahawk and CH-47 Chinnok.

Because we use them as placeholders - Sea Knight and Sea Stallion are not ready

The animations were the #1 Killer for me. The jogging animations were fine in ArmA 2, why change them? Now i feel like i'm playing ArmA I or default OFP again and those animations were bad...

We had a lo-o-o-ng discussion about them and decided to leave them. You won't have this problem in A3.

We are getting reports from nVidia users.

I am impressed with this mod. This needs to be in ARMA 3, because maybe then it will be returned to some of the original grounding and feel that the OFP/ARMA series has always had which is lacking in the new game, plus a good slogging match with the Russians and the Americans. I can see this mod as being the first successful one to introduce such a scenario into the new engine.
