Very cool video. That looks like a lot of fun. Can you do that while hosting a server for friends?

I thought this was supposed to be about the mission editor, but 90% of it is spent talking about combat tactics.

That's because the mission editor's so easy to use (for simple things) it only needed a short while to explain!

Lol, I like how he explains it for the people who never played a complex game like this.
"It's going to be very hard because, I'm alone against a large squad"
"I need to be extremely cautious"
"I'm continually using the alt key to scan the surrounding environment"
"Oh, I run into open field and they instantly killed me"
etc.
rofl...

I kinda have the feeling that he is trying to explain the complexity of this game to all the idiots who dont even closely understand the complexity and then come to the forums and whine about how many "bugs" the game has.

Anyways, the editor is indeed one of the best part of this game. When I am making missions with it I feel like a director and not like some generic map designer with very limited options in other games.

EDIT: Duh, at the end of the video he is even talking it out directly.

I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.

It does have bugs. Lots of bugs. Still, if you have a mammoth PC (and are lucky enough not to have performance problems) the game would be truly great. My PC can't handle it.

Saying this game has a lot of bugs is an understatement. I've been playing BIS's simulations since OFP was first released and I loved that game, even though it had its fair share of issues. But ArmA 1 and 2 is just WTF sometimes. There are aspects of it that's truly great but there's a lot of other things that makes me want to punch babies.

If only we had a game like this that was open source...
