Contact DLC

« posted: May 24, 2019, 12:04 PM »


Bohemia is releasing a new alien-themed expansion on July 25th: https://store.bistudio.com/products/arma3-contact

It includes a new map named Livonia, set in the Polish countryside.

I will definitely make an official A3Wasteland Livonia, can't wait for UFO Crash side missions.

Hey Rev!,


 If anyone wants to try before revs much better version.

I've got a very beta version I wacked together in couple of hours already on the new map! STILL WORK IN PROGRESS

Oh shit, it's already on the dev branch? That was faster than I expected, last time it was like 2 weeks before release. Not sure I'll have time to work on it until next weekend.

Somewhat similar to Chernarus in general, but smaller towns and only 1 airport

Northern half contains lots of open space, while southern half is mostly forests

I wish it was smaller to be honest, people will go back to Stratis after the novelty wears off

In light of recent events, the release of this DLC is epic. https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/20/politics/ufo-sightings-navy-briefs-us-senators/index.html

I'm afraid I won't have time to implement the Contact DLC before my vacation. I planned to do it this weekend, but I had to do overtime at my job and it took all my available free time, and I still have to pack my things up, I am leaving tomorrow night.

I most likely won't be able to work on Arma until Aug 7th. I should have done it way earlier, my apologies.

All good Rev Enjoy your time away!

I got maximus to make a 80 slot server ready for realise later on today, it wouldn't be as good as yours Rev it has new assets in stores guns etc spawns. So we'll see how it goes later on!

I'm kind of annoyed with BI. All of the Alien content is hidden in a completely separate game mode, which doesn't as of yet have multiplayer.

Sorry to all if I didn't release a Livonia mission. Between my vacation and the job, I haven't really found motivation to work on it, and I'm not sure if there is still demand for one at this point.

I will add store items at some point in the near future, but if a popular server wants me to see if I could improve their Livonia mission, that would be a possibility, I ain't making one from scratch for sure.

BI with their paywalls are tearing apart the A3 community, whats left of it that is.  SMH.

Yeah, it sure would be cool to have an alien invasion of Stratis every now and again... but I don't believe BI set it up for that... The new woodland cammies and weapons at least would be cool... and perhaps the incorporation of the destroyer with the "B_Ship_MRLS_01_F" on board. So far I have not been able to figure out how to put it down without players being able to grab it and fling it off the ship whilst still being able to utilize it... Thanks for all your hard work team A3Wasteland. The only mod I host!

I know it's 3 months late, but I've finally added most of the DLC items in the store config.
