ArmA 2 Project Reality Plans

The Project Reality Forums have word that the team behind this Battlefield 2 modification plan on turning their realistic attention to ArmA 2, the military shooter sequel from Bohemia Interactive Studios. They call ArmA2 Project Reality a "mini-mod," and say version 0.1 is now moving into the beta phase, and should be released "soon." They offer a trailer for the mod and a Highlights Reel #1 with more details. Word is: "PR:ArmA2 will exist as a standalone modification. It will remain self contained, self developing and not rely on or use externally held add ons from other sources where at all possible. What that means to the player is that it will be a 'one stop shop' as an installation package, with no requirement for additional multiple add on packs." Thanks Joao.

Hmm, have you played ArmAII since 1.05 patch? The engine is one of the best there is, from physics to gfx. It's a sim game afterall, so there is a lot going on with the engine.


Are you delirious? The "physics engine" is a complete joke and the graphics is far behind most games. The HDR implementation is wack, the LOD system is wack, and the overall performance is just crap. The physics and graphics of the Arma engine just doesn't compare to CryEngine2/3, idTech5, the engine behind BC2 (can't remember the name off hand), etc. Every one of these engines could render the large distances the Arma engine does but do a hell of a better job.

This game still has a lot of bugs that make the game either unplayable or just act goofy. One thing that annoys me that's still broken is the bug where you lose all of your gear after a few seconds in water. The gameplay is just plain fragile and half the time, or more, the mission can't continue due to a broken trigger/etc.

Maybe a lot of the game's and engine's problems are not as noticeable in multi player, I don't know as I only play single player. But overall, their engine is FAR FAR from one of the best.
