ARMA General - noob edition

ARMA general noob edition.

I grabbed ARMA III and it's DLCs on steam a couple months ago.

Been doing some reading and watching some dyslexi videos and practicing in the campaign and VR modes and the infantry showcase for a couple of weeks.

I've played a few scenarios generated by mods through with friends online and it has been fun, even if I've messed up and done things like shot a rescued hostage running up behind us because we'd dressed him up in looted armor and clothes for his protection. (the solution was to bring a set of non enemy clothes along on the next mission to dress the hostage in so that he wasn't wearing an unfriendly uniform AND a looted enemy plate carrier at the same time)

mission generator mods I've been having fun with.

The CUP mods RHS mods which are very common. These GREATLY expand the number of maps, equipment, weapons, and vehicles available.

I agree with Facepunch but....

BromA is filled with faggots, anti-social rejects, and Autists.

Also, Nife, who runs BromA is a bitch.

Here's an informational story about always checking if your vehicles actually are amphibious
150 people PVP event with opfor mechanized company assaulting a fortified town
Not going good, most of opfor's vehicles are gone without reaching the actual town
XOgetsabrightidea.tracer
"BMPs are amphibious, so we can circumvent their fortifications by going around them from the sea!"
Order a feisty command to his underlings
They don't question or think about it since it's not their fucking job
Remaining BMPs get loaded up and race to the sea
They jump over a small ridge into the water
They sink like a fucking rock to the bottom of the sea with their crew
Everyone dies either by drowning or getting shot by enemy MGs as they try to swim away
Apparently the BMPs were the K-variant which have extra armor on them with the negative side effect of not being amphibious.
Pic related, it's one of the BMPs in front of the town
So yeah, always check if your vehicle actually is amphibious.
