Arma 3 makes PC Gamers top 100 games!


Couldn't see the story online, but Arma 3 made number 42. Not bad for the age of the game. Didn't see Squad in there. but it was a only a quick read of the article.

Well, for one, it’s official! Not only does it have the official Offworld Industries stamp of approval, but we’ll also be running the show too.


 


Next up: we wanted to make sure it was the right tournament for Squad, so we started by consulting members of the community to see what sort of rules they wanted. 


 


After much deliberation, we’ve come up with a format we think you’ll like: head over to the official rules page for a complete breakdown.



THE NEED TO KNOW



  • Who: 36-player teams ready to take on some of the best players in Squad!
  • When: Season 1 will take place from September 20, 2019 through November 16, 2019, with the grand finale of both Division 1 and 2 on 21.00 UTC November 16, 2019.

The referee will be the admin on the game server, make sure the game starts on time, handle game start and map switches, make sure no disconnected players end up on the wrong side, as well as make sure everyone follows championship rules.  You’ll need to be proficient with server commands, so server admin experience is required.

  Squad News- CAF Patch and Alpha 16 Status
Posted by: iC-BOT - 13-09-2019, 11:16 PM - Forum: Squad News - No Replies

CAF Patch and Alpha 16 Status


Hey squaddies!


 


The Canadian Armed Forces team has been hard at work since the Modding Weekend to incorporate your feedback, smash bugs, and make all sorts of tweaks! We’re happy to present those changes now, as well as provide an update on Alpha 16 and the OWI Company Holiday.



CANADIAN ARMED FORCES UPDATE



souljaboiz-700x394.png


 


As mentioned, the CAF team has been hard at work polishing their release and are ready to roll out some of those changes! The update will release today, August 28, 2019, at 3 PM PDT. This is a separate update from Alpha 16, which we’ll touch on in just a minute.



KITS AND LOADOUTS



  • Added Arid (or Desert) Canadian faction.
  • Added a second Medic role with C8A3+C79A2.
  • LAT now receives two LAS instead of one.
  • Changed HAT Kit to have 1 Tandem and 1 HEAT round.
  • Added a second HAT Kit with 1 Tandem and 2 HE rounds.
  • Added the proper C8A3 icon for the M203 Grenadier version.


WEAPONS



  • Reworked ballistics of C14 .338 round:
    • The projectile arc is now flatter.
    • Raised muzzle velocity.
    • Increased one-hit kill range and damage over time.
  • Updated C79A2 sights by making the base post smaller and adding the illuminated part.
  • Streamlined ADS and weapon positions.
  • Streamlined recoil on C7A2+C79A2.
  • Increased ammo requirement for Carl Gustaf 751 Tandem to 80 instead of 60.
  • Decreased ammo requirement for Carl Gustaf 441D HE to 30 instead of 60.
  • Tweaked Carl Gustaf 441D damage.

mrbigguns-700x394.png



VEHICLES



 


  • Added desert versions for all vehicles.
  • Fixed accuracy on 2A6M’s Gunner Sight.
  • Increased visibility on 2A6M’s Rangefinder.
  • Increased zeroing speed on 2A6M.
  • Fixed Hunter-Killer on 2A6M.
  • Fixed Cage Collision on 2A6M.
  • Fixed LODs on Turret of 2A6M.
  • Fixed Armor on 2A6M.
  • Fixed wreck effects on LUV-A1.
  • Fixed missing components on LAV.

  • Adjusted Driver Camera on 2A6M and LAV.
  • Increased LAV Mobility.

  • Fixed armor on LAV side panels.


ADDED LAYERS



  • Added proper Jensens_Range_v4 with vehicles and ammo boxes
  • Kohat: Invasion_V1, RAAS_V3, TC_V1
  • Kamdesh: Invasion_V2, RAAS_V4, TC_V1


UPDATED LAYERS



  • Gorodok: RAAS_V2, Invasion_V2
  • Nanisivik: Invasion_V1, RAAS_V1, RAAS_V2
  • Manic 5: RAAS_V1, Skirmish_V1, TC_v1
  • Yehorivka: Invasion_V2, RAAS_V1


KNOWN ISSUES



  • Parts of Nanisivik are still Work-in-Progress.
  • Guns don’t drop on the floor when soldiers get incapacitated.
  • Desert Canadian Forces don’t have their own ammo boxes yet.
  • The Holosight Crosshair still reacts to resolution.
  • Mouths on characters don’t move when Voicing.
  • In some cases, a version mismatch may occur if a client updates before the server. Restarting the server should resolve the error.


ALPHA 16 STATUS





As some of the more observant of you noticed, we’ve been putting Alpha 16 through its paces through closed testing. While the results are encouraging, we feel the choppers aren’t quite there yet, so we’re planning to push the release back a little.


 


First, choppers are fully flyable and can be used to transport troops and supplies. They come equipped with door guns for self-defense, a gimbal camera to aid in landing, and a functional cockpit to help you keep aloft. As mentioned, we’ve held full-scale internal testing recently and gathered a lot of feedback from the first folks outside of Offworld to take flight.


 


While we’ve made some strides in getting performance improvements in place, especially for users with higher latency, the pilot experience still needs some work. In some rare cases, there are some crash bugs, plus some other quality-of-life improvements that need to be made before the patch is ready.


 


As we’ve been striving to maintain the 4-6 week patch cadence, we wanted to be fully upfront about the delay. Our humble apologies, but we believe getting helicopters right is worth it. As we move forward, we’ll ask for your help in doing just that with periods of public testing. We hope you’ll share your feedback!


 


Additionally, we want to ensure our modding community has better support and less downtime. With that in mind, releasing Alpha 16 too early would also cause a gap in SDK support. The hope is to have as little time possible between the patch and mod support for that patch being available, especially for communities using mods to host leagues and events.



OWI COMPANY HOLIDAY



Every year, the company takes a week off to get together, get to know everyone who’s joined us that year, hash out the next year (including planning the next trip), and recharge our batteries. It is, as you may have guessed, that time of year!


 


From Monday, September 9th through Friday, September 13th (most) of Offworld Industries will be in Japan. We’ll have a crew on hand to monitor things, but you may experience delays from support. You can still find assistance on the forums, the help site, or in Discord though.


 


Should you see a pack of Squad developers somewhere in Japan, please send help and a translator. =)



SIGN-OFF



We appreciate your patience and understanding! We’ll be back and in full swing, all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed before you know it. In the meantime, please enjoy the updates from the Canadian Armed Forces Team!

  Squad News- Track Attack Tournament Announcement
Posted by: iC-BOT - 13-09-2019, 08:50 PM - Forum: Squad News - No Replies

Track Attack Tournament Announcement


Armored squaddies rejoice, the time has come to prove your mettle!


 




 

A good tank crew is the backbone of a team and we’ve noticed that the armored crews out there have not had the opportunity to strut their stuff: enter the official Track Attack Tank Tournament.


 


Our newly formed tournament committee will be hosting an evening of knockout tank action for teams of 3 people to compete for vehicular bragging rights in true 1v1 tank action!


 


Taking to the field in intense and brutal 15-minute rounds, teams will fight for the top spot in a knockout-style tournament leading to a grand finale, all streamed for your enjoyment!


 


We’re hoping this small but high-octane event will be the perfect practice our team needs for our future event organization and management.


 


Sign-ups for this event will be open on Tuesday 27th August 12:00 UTC with spots limited to 8 teams — we want to give it a shakedown run before going any bigger.


 


From there we can look to put teams into their matchups and present the full tournament schedule.

  • A random location on the map will be picked, and one tank each will be spawned to participants.
  • A match ends when either one tank has been destroyed, or at the end of 15 minutes playtime. If time runs out, the most damaged tank will lose.
  • In case no damage has been done, the casters will decide the winner between who was more aggressive. Passive play is not rewarded!
  • If unable to decide a clear winner, a coin flip will be used.

  Squad News- Alpha 15.4 Released
Posted by: iC-BOT - 13-09-2019, 01:25 PM - Forum: Squad News - No Replies

Alpha 15.4 Released


Hey squaddies!


 


We’ve got some slightly-unusual patch notes for you today.


 


But first, you can say goodbye to that annoying server filter bug! (The “show full servers” checkbox functionality was inverted. Whoops!)


 


Additionally, we’re introducing some experimental changes to the “dead dead” mechanic, as well as the way “instadeath” works. Let’s dig in a little.



PRE-ALPHA 13



Prior to Alpha 13, the mechanics worked like this:


 


After dying and being revived, there was a 60-second time frame during which you were extra vulnerable. This meant that if you died again during these 60 seconds, you would become unrevivable (“dead dead”) and be instantly sent to the spawn screen. There was no UI indication of this vulnerability.


 


Taking a large caliber headshot (such as 50cal) would instantly make you unrevivable (instadeath).


 


This was a mechanic was originally added to convey some consequence of death, as well as a sense of tension and vulnerability to newly revived players. The goal was (hopefully) to encourage the vulnerable player to stick back with their squadmates.


 


We had some questions on whether the role of this mechanic was too punishing and negatively impacting the teamwork aspect, especially for new players to an already challenging game. It could be difficult to understand why the “instadeath” black screen occurred and the 60-second timer was not well-exposed.



ALPHA 13



With Alpha 13, when dying and being revived, there was no longer a period of extra “vulnerability,” allowing a player to be revived indefinitely. (Or until your medic ran out of bandages, anyway.)


 


The caliber required to make you unrevivable was increased, meaning you could be revivable after a 50cal headshot, but not after a 30mm headshot.


 


After 3 months of evaluation with these new changes, including lots of feedback from our community, we’re introducing a new iteration of these mechanics. 


 


As with the previous ones, the effects will be monitored and tweaked. Keep us updated with your feedback!



ALPHA 15.4



Revive window 1500.png


As of this patch (Alpha 15.4), when you are incapacitated, you have a revive window (5 minutes by default). This revive window will be shortened based on the amount of damage you took as part of your death.


 


For example, if you got downed by minimal damage from a pistol, your revive timer will be very close to 5 minutes. If you got downed by a rifle headshot, your revive timer will be slightly less than 2 and a half minutes. A 50 caliber headshot will give you a short 30-second revive window. Lastly, anything from a close proximity IED blast to a 30mm headshot and beyond will cause your revive window to be 5 seconds – too short to get revived in, so you’re effectively dead.


 


On top of this mechanic, the revive window persists through revives until you have been healed by a medic. This means that if you get headshot by a rifle, revived without getting healed, and then headshot again, the remaining revive window will be too short for another revive.


 


If not getting healed, this “persistent revive window” will automatically slowly increase back to the full 5 minutes as long as you remain alive. If you died, were revived, and managed to stay alive for a few minutes, you would be nearing the five-minute timer again.


Anything that previously sent you instantly sent to spawn screen (“instadeath”) will now instead give you a 5-second revive timer, too short to be revived in. The hope is to give the player more feedback about what happened when he died, instead of instantly disappearing from the map and into the spawn screen. 


 


In the future, we hope to include a 1-2 second ragdoll moment before entering the incapacitated state to provide better feedback about what just occurred in a more intuitive and immersive way.


 


Please note: there can and will be further tweaks and/or additions to this system. All in all, we hope it is a more flexible way to tune players’ revivability, as well as increase information available to the player. 


 


Our goal is to balance between the game being too forgiving and too unforgiving. In this version, revive trains should be harder to maintain and most catastrophic damage (e.g., headshots, IED explosions) should be more effective as well. However, players will still get a second chance in most cases. We will keep tracking revive statistics as well as your feedback.



BUDDY RALLY



Finally, we would like to give you some information on our intended gameplay ideas in the future concerning the Buddy Rally system. For the time being, lacking a system to reclaim or reset abandoned vehicles in the field, we will be keeping the buddy rally mechanic. 


 


In the future, we would like to see this replaced with a mechanic that deals with abandoned vehicles in the field, so that respawning at main is a more viable option. The buddy rally mechanic might still become a limited option available to the Commander, giving squads an extra option for situational redeployment. Another option is to make it available only to the Insurgents faction. Please keep your feedback coming on this as well.


 


Enjoy the patch! Let us know what you think!

Hey squaddies!


 


We’re tracking an issue that’s preventing players from accessing servers.


 


Early reports from the team are pointing to an issue with Steam-Unreal functionality related to the FOnlineAsyncTaskSteamFindServers queue. It appears to be an issue that will impact other games (e.g., Mordhau) using the Epic Steam OSS will be unable to display servers.


 


We’ll keep an eye on the situation and let you know more once we do.

  Arma 3 News- Arma 3 - Feedback Tracker
Posted by: iC-BOT - 13-09-2019, 12:54 PM - Forum: Amra 3 News - No Replies

Arma 3 - Feedback Tracker


For the Arma 3 Alpha we have decided to make use of our own Feedback Tracker (FT - opened with the release on March 5th). Some of you will wonder why we do not use the DevHeaven Community Issue Tracker, so I will try to explain our rationale in this post.

First of all, let me thank the people involved in running CIT, such as Sickboy, kju and the rest of its admin staff! Big thanks as well to those who took the time to report issues, work on good repro methods and validating fixes. This has especially helped with the ongoing development of the Operation Arrowhead beta patches. It's good to have a dedicated place to track issues, rather than to contain it all within the forums. That leaves these forums to be a place of discussion and community collaboration.

For the Arma 3 Alpha we however wished things from the tracking platform that CIT did not currently do. I have no doubt its creators could eventually implement some of what we needed, but we had to get it up and running very quickly. Most of it was about direct administration control and connections to our own web services. In our vision for Arma 3, the consistent and complete package is important. We feel the Feedback Tracker is part of that, and so it should feel as close as possible to the rest of the websites and the game. If we decide to make a subtle change quickly (e.g. an artwork or disclaimer text), we need to be able to immediately get it done via our own web team. We are also expecting an influx of people who have no experience with CIT or our community at all. We need a platform those people can easily find and use. They should not be confused about whether the platform is official or not.

In the end though, no matter what platform is used, the goal is for us to cooperate with you: developers and the community. We'd like to ask you to help us to do that. By reporting issues to us in a good way, we can do our best to correct them. By voting you let us know which issues are of key importance to you. On our end we are getting our pipelines ready to be able to more frequently update the game during Alpha, Beta and the main release. We'll have a default branch on Steam where we release major and tested updates. Interesting for rapid iterations is the Development branch, where we'll let any of our developers update data much more frequently. Sometimes this will break that branch, but a key differentiation to OA's beta patches: data updates are used more. Fixes are not primarily focused on the programmers.

Also let me introduce you to our Senior Quality Assurance team member: Astaroth. He will be your Community QA Liaison - which means he'll help the team stay aware of issues being reported and voted on. That's not to say the rest of the team will not also be using FT: we are encouraging as many of our developers as possible to keep an eye on it.

We hope CIT can continue to provide its excellent services to many other projects such as the community's. Please join us in creating a stable and optimized Arma 3 game :icon14:

Canadian Armed Forces Deployed!


Hey squaddies!


 


We’ve got some fresh reinforcements incoming: The Canadian Armed Forces are now fully deployed! That’s right, there’s a brand new faction in Squad and it’s already yours, completely free.


 




 

Originally known as CAFMOD, the team behind the new faction is straight from our modding community. We’re honored to be able to include them as official content for all players. What content is that, you ask?

  • Fixed bug that caused Spandrel to be able to launch multiple rockets in rapid succession (Salvo-fire). 
  • Increased damage for Konkurs ATGM (Spandrel & BMP-2) up to the level of other ATGM systems, up to 1800 from the initial 1200.
  • Increased rearm cost for Spandrel to 400 ammo points per rocket, increased from 200.
  • Increased rearm time for Spandrel to 30 secs per rocket, increased from instant rearm.
  • Increased delay between consecutive shots for Spandrel to 7.5 seconds, increased from 5 seconds.


USER INTERFACE



  • Territory Control: Replaced Shield icons with Anchor-like icons.
  • Territory Control: Fixed ticket bleed values not displaying for clients
  • Fixed incorrect requirement for INS, MIL, and Radio Tooltips when deploying via Radial Menu.


MISCELLANEOUS FIXES



  • Fixed the glass material on vehicles showing through fog, especially at a distance.
  • Optimized 25mm and 30mm HE impact VFX.


KNOWN ISSUES



  • Occasionally the landscape renderer will not load correctly resulting in black foliage on a map. A fix is being investigated.
  • Client crash on map switch.
  • Players will occasionally spawn without ammunition on their first spawn on a server. (This occurs if you were in the match during map travel but did not spawn during the staging phase.)
  • Occasionally a player will not spawn at Rally Point when numerous players are spawning in at the same time.
  • Occasionally client crashes in various circumstances: we’re still looking into the crash reports. Detailed crash reports help us fix this and we appreciate those that have filled out and sent crash reports.
  • Server performance may periodically dip when a server has a high population and high load. We’ll continue to work on performance and optimizations.
  • Occasionally Self-bandaging fails. Actively investigating the cause.
  • Mouse widgets (e.g. enter a vehicle, comm rose) can stop responding to clicks. A workaround is opening and closing the deploy screen.
  • Capture Zone (Flag) Icon will not show on a client’s HUD sometimes.
  • ATGM projectiles desync for other players that are not gunner, however, what the gunner sees should be the true synced projectile.
  • Certain effects do not blend correctly with fog on some layers.
  • HAB Spawn is disabled if FOB Radio is unshovelled below 75%, currently other forms of damage to the FOB Radio (such as explosives) do not disable HAB Spawn. (Under active development.)
  • De-shoveling a friendly FOB Radio costs 10 tickets. (Fix in progress.)
  • Local/Offline Bug with Vehicles: When playing offline on Jensen’s Range, Tracks, Wheels, and other components are not destructible while on the Jensen’s Range in Local play.
  • Local/Offline Bug with Weapon damages: When playing offline on Jensen’s Range, Weapon damages with both Infantry and Vehicle weapons are not accurately replicated.
  • Territory Control Bug: there is no UI indicator for showing cutoff enemy hexes (hexes that are not linked to the anchor point). Friendly cutoff hexes are showing correctly though.
