Meh... More giant, sparsely populated islands. Whooptie-######ing-do!

The best maps for A2/OA were Hazor-kot and Aliabad, primarily because they were smaller and more detailed. I wish I knew were this need for massive terrains that have minimalist features and details came from.

People who play ArmA just so they can fly helos/planes are a good place to start looking Posted Image

As for me, I'm also a fan of the detailed maps, and don't care too much about size as long as it's not some cramped 1 sqm map where you can shoot from 1 side of the map to the other.

The feature in ArmA 3 is quite difficult to use. I only use it when I absolutely must. Primary use is to increase my height to be able to shoot down from a top level window at a nearby target, so I don't really use all the other intermediate stances, and even that one which I do use - I use quite rarely.

Obviously. What I meant was if your eyes were already adjusted to the dark and you flip the NOD onto your face, your eyes would have to adjust from the darkness of the room (or wherever) to the brightness of the NOD's display, wouldn't they? So my question is, in Ground Branch, would they?

That adjustment is actually pretty quick. It's the adjustment the other way around that takes longer, but even then basic vision is gained pretty quickly - It's seeing well that takes time.

Yeah, the easiest way to get rid of hackers is to get rid of trade-able goods. If everything on your account is bound to it, there is very little point in hacking you (assuming you can get the account back by contacting support in the worst case, as it has your name on it).

Blizzard took that approach with Diablo 3 - No more farms of bots in China farming gold on hundreds of game copies at any given time, and no more hacking accounts to steal their gold. Simple and effective, and actually makes the game more fun as you can spend more time playing and less time dealing with trading stuff or wondering how the bots are going to affect the economy.

Are there any smaller and therefore cheaper 4k monitors though? More than 24" (or maximum 27") is pretty gigantic for a desktop...
