WW2 (IFA3LITE) modded session. 29th of October.

Postby boberro » Thu Oct 06, 2016 7:23 pm

Hi, I'd like to say something: modded Arma 3. :psyboom:

There's a mod called IFA3LITE. It's available on steam workshop. IFA3 ports Iron Front to Arma 3 engine. Iron Front is a game made on Arma 2 engine, set during world war 2, that universally hated, but some of us love it.

I'd like to have a session of this mod. This October. I provide the server, you bring the beer.

Since mods are enough of a shock to some, there is/will be F3 framework ported to use with the mod, so we have at least some of familiarity.

TL;DR
WHAT? Iron Front MOD session. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=660460283
WHEN? Saturday 29th, 19:20 UK time (just like normal session time). Warmup session will be held on Friday 21st.
WHERE? I provide the server. It's rated u-boot proof.
IS IT ONE SHOT? It won't be a new group/community, but it's possible we could play it more than once.
WHAT MISSIONS ARE WE PLAYING? Here's the catch - we have to make our own missions. Go grab framework from my github and be ready to update it a lot, as it's still developed. ATM it only supports germans.
CAN I HELP? Yes. By now with making missions, contributing to the framework and announcing your availability. Check event's discord: https://discord.gg/ZEcqmsS
WHAT IF NOBODY MAKES ANY MISSIONS There's still workshop.
SWIFTY? Don't know. I don't really have bandwidth to host my own repo right now. If you can help with this stuff, I'll be thankful.
DIRECT DOWNLOAD? https://forums.bistudio.com/topic/190809-iron-front-in-arm3-lite-preview-versions/

If you want to tell me it's bollocks, offer help or sign up, reply here, or join me at event's discord server. And stay tuned for more.

Official Date
Since 1Tac has a live meetup on 21st-23rd, the game will take place on saturday 29th 19:20UK time (just like normal FA session time). But since interest was 50-50 in both dates, and I want to play this game, there will be a warmup/test-drive on Friday 21st.
I still have to get my shit together and decide between ACRE/TFR, but since it's a test drive, we'll be playing with a radio mod, so we know how much FA fucks things up using said technology :laugh:

So... "Warm up" happened. And it was the opposite of this: :siiigh:, in other words it was a success!
What we know is that people on the internet don't know how to use F3 (who tf decided to remove the spectator script completely?), and that IFA3 is fun.

Hope those who liked it will feel more comfortable working on missions, now that you know what it is like.
