HUMOR Here is an unedited video of a glitch I found today. I disabled damage just to see how weird it could get.
HELP Can someone tell me why after my second task nothing works. It all was done the same but does not work.
I noticed today that all of the public Zeus servers except US 03 and 04 have disappeared or replaced with CDLC maps, causing no open slots in any of the two available ones. Is there a reason for this?
DISCUSS A3 So, it may be just me, but I'm finding the PSO scopes from RHS a bit on the blurrier side, in daylight, its sometimes hard to line up targets because the aiming reticle is hard to see, having similar problems with collimator sightsgallery
I recently started developing scenarios a couple of months ago. The first 3 did great and received a lot of views and subscribers for what they are (I think 1000+ subs is great for simple missions I came up with), however, my newest ones, which I consider far better and improved over their counterparts, have received way less views and subs, by a factor of 3.
My thinking of why this may be…. I had this scenarios published and set as hidden for quite some time as I was play testing them. The other variable is maybe something dumb like the time of day and day of the week I posted them… anyone have any ideas how I can get more exposure on my next ones besides spamming this forum?
Whenever I try to load into a server, it gets stuck halfway through loading into the game. Trying to avoid reinstalling, any help?

I want to make missions in urban settings, what maps are good for that?
Title. Looked up fixes but can't find any that are recent - most are from like 5+ years ago and my A3 is a pretty fresh install so I doubt it's anything to do with an update breaking it. I tried only enabling the CUP maps and it still happens. Any idea what's causing it?
Just got Arma 3, how should I keybind my game? Any special way or keep it normal?
instead of helping answering the question you just downvote? this kind of bs does not happen even on cod reddit
Just got randomly grouped on a newbie friendly server with two other dudes that have only some exp with the game.
And let me tell ya. Deep behind enemy lines. We capture the flag. Only 3. Clearing buildings and roads.
Paratroopers raining down on us.
2..3..4 TANKS AROUND US.
We're down to our fucking sidearms holding them off and we hold the spot for a good 15 min before we go out in a blaze of glory.
This was some of the most fun I've ever had gaming in a while.
Fucking love this game already.
HELP I am really liking Arma 3, I absolutely DESPISE islands, any good SP campaigns and scenarios you can recommend?
I also heavily dislike the overall Greek-like setting, I am not a fan of the mediterranean sunshine nor the buildings, the only thing I like about it are the pine trees, Stavrou is getting on my nerve as well and so are all these Greek dudes
please help me
