In Topic: But is it fun?

Nice to see you guys got some stuff working!

Why not use something like the Arma 3 system? That is, every time you fire your weapon the shot is synchronized for visual effects only, and when your shot hits something the actual effect (damage, etc) is synchronized again. That way if you see you hit something - You actually hit it.

The downside of this is that you might see someone hitting something that he's actually not hitting. With enough lag, you could see yourself getting shot yet not take any damage, or see yourself completely safe behind cover and then die. But I think it's overall the best compromise, as any other compromise would mean the player needs to lead moving targets to take latency into account, which is something you really don't want players to need to do. In games where bullets are not simulated (laser weapons, aka counter-strike or most unreal tournament weapons) you can have better solutions, but in a game with proper ballistics you have to resort to Arma 3 style solutions to get something that is playable.

In today's DTAS had someone place helicopter insertion position over water, which I've fixed to make the helicopter start as flying, but new BIS bug is making it crash :(

My main issue with A2 islands is that they use A2 buildings. At the very least they should use OA buildings so that you can enter them properly. While it does get a little bit boring to play the same map all the time, I do find Altis quite a bit better gameplay-wise than any previous (user or official made) maps.

Unless it was upgraded with OA / A3 buildings?

In the long run sharing would be awesome, and shouldn't be too difficult considering they can already be saved...

Even just in MP "Get (and save) the same loadout as THAT guy" can be nice.
