RKSL Studios ArmA Projects

Just as was said in the OFP forums some months ago we are going to port our existing OFP projects into ArmA.  The focus; in conjunction with the UKF Team, on British Expeditionary Forces, added to that we’re going to create a few more surprises to tag onto the project list.

ArmA's new graphics and scripting engine has given us some interesting possibilities. So we have decided to make some ambitious plans.  We plan to simulate the British Expeditionary Forces and the supporting systems either currently in service or due in service by 2012-17.  Inline with the way the modern battlefield has evolved we plan to make a series of addons that simulate the integrated battlefield control systems of the 21st century.

The plan is to release a series of addons in 2 phases, focusing on several script systems that should add to the functionality and the game play.  Then to provide addons to demonstrate them:


<span style='font-size:12pt;line-height:100%'>PHASE 1 – Addon Releases</span>
These will be stand alone addons with the supporting scripted systems such as:

FCSS – Fire Control Script System
--- e.g.:  Rapier FSB, Rapier FSB, SA-2 etc
“Improved” Cargo System
--- e.g.: C-130 (UK Versions), IL-76
VTOL - Realistic VTOL system for Harriers and JCA
--- e.g.: GR7/9, F-35B/JCA

<span style='font-size:12pt;line-height:100%'>PHASE 2 – Integrating Systems </span>
This phase will take the form of an update patch or a new addon pack; we’re not sure exactly what will be required; allowing the addons to interact with each other. These will provide the basis of the modern integrated information systems to accurately simulate the modern battlefield as seen from the perspective of a UK armed forces member.

We are looking in to ways to simulate the sort of communication a pilot/soldier/gunner would expect to get. This means systems and scenarios such as:

<ul>AWACS – Warning of incoming aircraft and dynamic requests for CAS, Medivac and extraction.
ASTOR – Airborne Stand Off Radar – Real time battlefield Intel provided to the appropriately equipped personnel and vehicles.
JTIDS – Joint Tactical Information Distribution (Designation) System – Target Sharing and situational displays.
Fire Control (FCSS) on air defence systems – AI ability to engage multiple targets at once and assign assets to threats.
UAV/UCAV tasking – requesting UAV intel/cover and being able to direct it via radio. [/list]We wont be posting a comprehensive list of all our addon plans but most is already out there for those who to search to find!

Thanks

Rockape on behalf of the RKSL Team.

NOTE 1:  PLEASE keep any discussion to RKSL projects, if you want to discuss anyone else's equivalent projects do it in thier threads.  Thanks.

Yes there is. He's called Autopilot.

RKSL probably just hasn't had time to fix the pilot proxy yet.

I hope the cargo has been fixed some for ArmA, so we can load and unload stuff on the battlefield easier now.

First of all Merry Christmas - hope you are all having a good one!

without access to the proper tools i'm not sure that the cargo system will be significantly different than in OFP. BUT, UNN thinks he might have an improved version of the BAS cargo system in the works and we're hoping to add a few more features to it to allow proper cargo drops etc

How the hell is that harrier flying, there's no pilot? Posted Image

Its a problem with ArmA proxies in the current O2 P3D format - without knowing the proper proxy formats nothgin seems to work.  Unfortuately unlike some (that claim to have it - Res: Rehashed guys) I dont have access to O3.  these are just OFP models ported into ArmA for config and texture tests.

Will you be releasing any more projects for FP or is it all ArmA from now on?

Was looking forward to Harrier for FP.

Yeah, we are still planning on releasing the Harrier (BETA) and Rapier FSB & FSC for OFP but not much else.  Althought I am hoping to get some 'old' betas into the community since im remodelling most everything for ArmA.
