MOD Tools:
* plug-ins for industry standard (max/maya) so that O2 is no longer mandatory for content creation or setting up animations
* shaders for industry standard (max/maya) that would allow easy export into rvmat format.
* improved tools or ability to import FBX files in O2 with the animation files.

Game Engine:
* Deffered lighting/shading
* Support for multiple light sources and shadows.
* Further improvements to the animation system besides the IK - splitting the animation even more than at the moment (lower and upper body).

AI:

- Xaitment pathfinding from VBS2! No more being unable to pass through a 2m wide opening for a single soldier. No more cars being unable to drive between 2 bushes 4 meters apart
- the ability to operate indoors (enter and navigate buildings on their own, like f.e. when they think an enemy is there or they think they can engage an enemy from a balcony or other position inside)
- the ability to use ammo from backpacks
- the ability to deploy smoke when squad member is wounded
- the ability for squad leaders to decide whether to dispatch a medic to heal a wounded soldier in a nearby squad (~30m) that has no medic
- crouch instead of standing in the open ground (prone stance should have the same priority, just switch standing and crouching importance levels)
- the ability for squads where squadleaders have radios to share info within certain distance (max effective distance is 500m if I'm not mistaken) - that includes would-be squadleaders, like soldiers becoming one after the current one dies - if they have radios then they should share info
- better reactions to enemies within 50m
- crawling through holes instead of walking through walls with holes! Use waypoint A on one side which makes soldier go prone and waypoint B on another side which makes the soldier go back to "AUTO" stance again. Simple?

ArmA2: "Doc, I'm wounded, I can barely aim and I'm bleeding badly, come on pull my body out of the harm's way and treat me before I die!"
ArmA3: "You are wounded! Click to instantly regenerate health whenever you feel like it!"

Guess two years post-release aren't enough to make ArmA3 at least half as dumbed down.

Mod tools:
* More streamlined updating / modding system to improve multiplayer compatibility.
It's currently a nightmare trying to figure which modfolders each server is or isn't using, and then find out that some are or aren't using the same versions of the mods, etc etc etc.

I shouldn't have to go back and forth between the main menu and the multiplayer browser to manually work out through trial and error what the problem with the mods is - if the mods are installed and the server has them on, the game should make them available. If the server doesn't have them, the game shouldn't assume they're active.

Gameplay:
* I want a game, not a mission-building toolkit.

Some engrossing and "complete" multiplayer game-modes that are fun out-of-the-box; for example streamlining and including Domi / Warfare so that they don't exceed the server's capacity to run them - thereby preventing warping / respotting tanks, or the server just plain crashing after building large bases.

AI:
* Make the bot's wallhacks and aimbotting less severe. I hate getting counter-sniped at distances of over 1km by an untrained militia grunt using an AK. A more complicated scripting process for "detecting" enemies can be employed, as the problem is precisely that they're TOO FAST. A more realistic response would go hand in hand with it being slower.

The way I see it working is, on hearing a contact, the bots are aware of the contact (not the player, but the location) and will "snap" their wide FOV onto the target; but won't engage until the FOV is 0 on the target (IE they have direct line of sight and are locked on). Their initial FOV (and its max range) will be determined by a number of factors (The stealth of the shooter, the perceptiveness of the AI unit in question, the loudness of the shooter, enhancing items such as binoculars, etc), and the bots will attempt to "narrow" the FOV by performing searching behaviours and moving around obstructions. The FOV will slowly "widen" if they don't have LOS or hear a contact - until they have "lost contact" and revert to their default behaviour. If they have LOS to the contact, the FOV will slowly "narrow" on that point until they have acquired the target and shoot.

If they hear a contact outside of the FOV, they *reset* their FOV to appropriate base amount for the new contact, and shift they their attention to the new source. Thus a distraction (a grenade set off behind them), or another unit engaging) can draw their attention elsewhere. The reset of the FOV simulates the effects of tunnel-vision.

A simple unit-based variable we can call "perceptiveness" would determine how narrow the FOV is, and how far the target has to be, before the unit in question "finds" the target and is positive of its location, and thus begins its engaging behaviours.

Those are, as I said, the deal-breakers; however for just "wishlist" requests:

A. The vehicle physics need to be worked out. Whether driving a bike, a humvee, or a LAV, I always feel like I'm driving a box being pushed around a table; I get no sense of traction, of suspension, or of forces acting realistically on a vehicle. Every single battlefield game since 1942 has managed to create a plausible and pleasurable driving experience, so it's about time ARMA catches up.

B. Better quality control; I've restarted the Red Harvest campaign half-a-dozen times (usually after each patch) - and every single time I've found a new scripting error or game-breaking bug. I haven't even bothered with the PMC / BAF campaigns I own because every time I get enthused, I remember the tooth-pulling pain of trying to do ANYTHING in the original campaign, and how futile it actually is to try and get anything out of this game without running into totally unnecessary frustrations.

C. Streamlined controls - there's way too many mutually exclusive keystrokes being tied up with individual functions. Completely segregate the keybinds into "common" "Infantry" "air" "land vehicles", so that duplicate keys can be used more easily.

My wishes and ideas are:

Realistic weapons for the Fractions! (An Islamic Country like Iran will never use a weapon from Israel)

Features from ArmA 2 ACE into default ArmA3. (E.g. the ACE WOUND system [or even something more complex] or Kestrel [and the complex windsystem], DAGR)

Dont turn ArmA into a Arcade game like BF3 or "CoD Modern Warfare 43626XYZ Ramirez saves Burgertown". Even though i like the fact that its playing in the feature you should keep an eye own how "scifi" it goes.... (And there we are again with the israeli weapons)

Animations! Proper reload animations. In ArmA 2 there are for all weapons the standart M16 reload animations. Make proper M203 (or any grenade launcher) animations. Just costum reload/fixjam animations for the weapons.

Damage Models: More realistic damage models (More than 1-2 steps to total destruction of a building). And fix the "Anti-Building-Smoke bug". Sometimes I lie on a house in Takistan and throw a smoke or two and the building gets totally messed up.

Sounds and Effects: Please. Realisitic Sounds and Smoke Effects.

Maybe some neutral fraction like UN inside the combat area.

Checkpoints: Makes really fun if you can use a mirror to look under a vehicle, check with AN PSS-14 and search the vehicle for weapons, drugs and more.

Thats all for the moment, if i find more i just edit it or add it.

Keep the great work up Devs!

Knife! Not like in BF or CoD, BUT: A simple knife. Could be cool for stealth action! But you should make it so that you cant use it in CQB. Maybe Holster or hang around your current weapon, animation of opening a small pocket and take out the knife... would be cool for taking out guards or single man patrols quietly. And of course Dragging around people to hide it in bushes or behind rocks or buildings (when infiltrating a enemy base e.g.)

Abseiling! From houses, cliffs or mountains or more...



EDIT: More complex Defusing System. Maybe you find an IED and click maybe on the self-interaction button (like in ace). Then you get a menu with "defuse IED" and a pic or something from the inside or a part of the IED/Bomb where several wires are and maybe the fuse. Then you have to decide wich wire to cut and if its not possible to cut you should make a controlled explosion.

  • Game engine
  • Walk/stay inside all vehicles when this allow in real life (c-130, chinook, bus, in truck cargo etc.)
  • Vertrex damage on vehicles (how its realised in GTA4), cutout doors, wheels, other parts!
  • Better reloading animations!
  • Smooth animations (switch between animations too), more static animations (idle, crouch, run, walk, seet, playing with weapon if stay)
  • Allocate grenades as a separate weapon, and the ability to change the current type grenades (to switch between types of grenades)
  • !Brokeable doors, windows, walls in houses!

  • Gameplay
  • emergency ropes (vehicle can drag vehicle)
  • Drag and drop, thow small objects
  • Heli lift system (can drag soldiers on rope, any objects, cars, etc)

-AI halo jumps

-Fastroping (AI aswell)

-AI spotters that tells you wind and distance

-Various medical equipment like bandages, morphine etc. (maybe splints...?)

-Bleeding while not being incapacitated

-No magical "you just got pierced by 10 mg rounds and now you will be restored to full health"...

-More advanced artillery fire mission requests then point and click

-AI moving along walls and cover when in urban areas

-AI not always following in exact formation but instead adapt to cover, buildings, walls etc (almost same thing as above)

-IR strobes easier to spot

-Chemical warfare (scuds, gasmasks, mopp-suits etc)

-Improved high command

-Order AI helicopter pilots to land

-Dividing units in your squad into fireteams (http://forums.bistud...ad.php?t=125836)

-AI being able to stack up and clear a building. (maybe using frags and flashbangs???)

-In the 3D editor (which i think you have confirmed...) when you create landing pads you should be able to set exactly how the helicopters approaches and land so that you can be inserted/extracted in for example tight wooden areas or on cliffs/mountainsides (, i've always dreamed about standing on a cliffedge with my fellow soldiers waiting for a chinook to pull up and put his rear landing gear down on the edge and then load a squad before taking of into the distance...... :D)

And this is my contribution to ArmA III...

I would like, with one click of the mouse to give a series of orders:
Run to that spot
Go prone
Face that direction
Hold fire.

Or to rephrase: A long list of pre-defined groups of orders that can be given with one click of the mouse (or keyboard).

Setting Rules of Engagement:

The team is patrolling/guarding/ relaxing /or whatever.
They spot enemy/they come under fire/or whatever.

They then carry out one of the Rules of Engagement that I selected at the start of the mission.

The rules of engagement can be allocated to teams or to individual soldiers.

Different teams can be allocated different rules of engagement.

Add a toggle key.

I am commanding 8 men so there are a total of 9 of us on the map.

There will be 9 soldier icons on my screen.

“2” commands 3, 4 and 5. “6” commands 7, 8 and 9

I press the toggle key and now I can only see “1’, “2” and “6” on my screen.
I press the toggle key and I can see all 9 icons again.

If I give an order to any man he carries out that order. If I give an order to “2” or “6” their teams carry out the order.
