DLC - Arma 2 content to Arma 3 by BIS
Hello,

I want to suggest that BIS brings out an update for ARMA 3 that will include all of the great aircraft and even weapons that Arma 2 had. I would love to see a good chunk of Arma 2 content in Arma 3 since a lot of it was so great and fun on MP.

I'm mostly talking about the aircraft but I know others and myself are missing the "current" generation weapons, aircraft, vehicles, etc. I love the work you did on Arma 3 (and lots you still will/need to do) but I really miss my A-10 and Blackhawk.

I feel this would be a much simpler update/addon with all of the units already been designed and need minimal work on the models or script.

Modders will already do this. Why pay for it?

I never said we should pay for it, BIS is releasing (as with Arma 2) lots of free content. The modders have been amazing with previous Arma releases but the problem with a mod is everyone needs it and the server has to support it.

If BIS releases this as a free DLC content update then everyone can enjoy it from the server by default as long as the mission design incorperates the vehicle. Let's face it, a huge complaint is content, this would be a much easier content release then something from scratch when they could port the Arma 2 content and update as needed.

Agh, my mistake for assuming you meant paid DLC. I'm so used to people referencing paid DLC when they say "DLC" nowadays....

Yeah, I could see it as useful. But I doubt it would be high priority for the devs.

If anything, I'd like to see the "resistance" faction that will inevitably be in the game (or are they the AAF?) have lower-tech (currently modern) weapons.

There is talk in Bohemia that they would allow all the ARMA 2 content to be used by modders and create their own version of the content or just straight up port the content across, hopefully they do allow the community to do this

more than likely someone out there will port all the vehicles,weapons etc across to be used in ARMA 3

x2, ArmA2 offers so much more in terms of immerse weapons and vehicles for both sides.

you can do it now, you can take some files ffrom arma2 and put it in arma3, and you'll even get the maps from arma2. there's a video on youtube you could see

As i own Arma2/OA, i want to have an official option to make the classic arma2 units back and make them playable as they are without incompatibility glitches or the need of using the 'swiss knife & duct tape' 3rd party modders method -that is only partially working today.

Yeah Arma 3 is lacking in variety and I would love to play with the many Arma 2 units while I wait for BIS to release some more content filled patches for Arma 3.

The CEO said that they're not going to do an official port, so they're just going to release the sources to modders to make derivative works in Arma 3 with.

They have already announced that they will release the ENTIRE library of A2 to the PUBLIC for FREE. That means modders will be able to port them.
Cpt.Goose Oct 16, 2013 @ 3:28pm 
Yes, that has been mentioned about 10x now since the news release but thanks for adding that again.

I and Imonar were presumably both posting to make it clear that BI is specifically NOT going down the DLC/official port route, but rather mods only.
