    So I just had a fucking hell of a time setting up for a town raid in DayZ with a bunch of FPers (spoilers: the actual raid didn't go that well) but we had tons of fun getting the gear ready and dicking around at camp waiting for people to come.
    A friend mentioned this was kinda what actual ArmA is all about, and I'd love to get in on that kinda stuff. It seems like a fun game, but the AI is shit and I dislike teaming up with random people, so I'll see if I can join you guys sometime. I've also been told stuff about ShackTac but I've heard they take the game too seriously.
    Shacktac doesnt take the game seriously to be tacticool, read their manual all their shit is for the sake of being effective they aren't armchair generals.

    Got a response after about 1 and a half month or so. Got put in their DEP-program, so now I'm just waiting to see if I'm lucky enough to be one of the next guys to be accepted into the next wave.

    no you obviously dont understand

    we become FaceTac, then we use everything shacktac uses, then we challenge them to the scrim on the century FaceTac vs. ShackTac for the grand prize of $1(0)(0)(0) in a few PvP missions and then we win forever dude

    i can imagine it now, glorious

    Nothings really stopping people outside of FP from playing and nothing ever really did lol.

    its not like theres entrance exams or something, you can basically just get all the mods and the server passwords by just looking around and the steam group is public.

    I honestly think you could get away with a more RTS-esque map editor for the major landscaping tasks, and then just zoom in and float around to fine tune things and place objects. Throw in importing heightmaps, simplify painting forests/roads/etc. and bam.

    Ive got this weird bug from the beta patch where if I drive in vehicles a huge green box is pasted on the left side of the screen, is there any way to fix it? I can only load up the game through the beta patch .exe and thats a bit annoying too.
