well in my impression the game is early access and they should add stuff like this not as dlc but as content for going for a gold release ^^

All engine related stuff is for free though. When you dont want the new weapons or equipment, you dont need to buy it

They released Arma3 almost 2 years ago xD

The thing with arma is that it always been a niche game for military enthusiasts. It had its fanbase that could enjoy the buggy Arma2 and not complain a lot about it, usually fixing a lot of stuff that was wrong with vanilla game with mods. Then DayZ and Battle Royale happened, right before the release of Arma3. Arma2 was in steamĀ“s top10 selling games for like 3 months. Now that majority of their fanbase is people who are not into modding or can't forgive a lot of bugs, Bohemia started to patch the game.

P.S. Since HCJ doesn't want to redeem a copy of Arma3 I gifted him, if anyone is interested I have a spare copy of the game on steam. Just send me PM or post a reply if you want it.

im actually thinking about a dedicated server for us because i have the hardware for that at home not in use but the problem is u need a second copy of the game to run it... so this would be perfect :)

just tested yesterday the dedicated server on my sytem ...server + Arma running 2 different processes... its clearly alot better than a hosted session (only one arma process) on the same machine.

im using ALIVE in combination with MCC and during the test i didnt notice a single framedrop while spawning AI with ALIVEs profile system.. i was amazed :woohoo:

for a dedicated server you dont need another copy, you can dl the files on steam in tools it will just check the cd key of client connecting to it (well i guess)

Here's an essential post you should read if seriously considering a server. Its a very, very demanding game server wise: epochmod.com/forum/index.php?/topic/3066...-server-performance/

thank you gribb very informative :)

i dont consider hosting an Epoch, KOtH or Wasteland server. (PvP in general) since im more in to PvE and mission making for about 12 ppl atm...
performance is an important factor for a good mission, and since i tried the "semideidicated" i saw this is the way to go.

Expect an ARMA 3 Server have been reported to use around 1Mbit per connected client (server-to-client upstream bandwidth). This means that with 50 players, you will need about 50Mbit upload.

in that case i can have missions for about 20 players...

I've been reading the offers and testimonals at various dedicated Arma 3 hosting companies.

Here's a choice of hosting providers that should be up to the job!

allgameserver.com/gameservers/arma-3-server-hosting/

www.gameservers.com/game_servers/arma3.php

www.vilayer.com/gaming-layer/game-servers.html

jestservers.com/panel/cart.php?gid=3



Nothing interesting to see here. Move along.
