  1. SHHH Don't tell AWOL its a Spoiler!

    Perfect!
  2. new villian?

    Ah didn't know about full moon. I thought even this feature were disabled by Bugemia after their update on lightning FX. Yes, that artificial ambient light is just terrible, like a lantern always following you above your head. Unrealistic to say the least.
  3. new villian?

    I think one of the biggest issues with Night Time in Arma 3 is that on some servers (or maybe most) due to colour correction and other nonsense it becomes everything pitch black so you can not even see 1 meter in front of you. Arma 3 had pretty night times before some 1.6x or whatever update that changed everything. I guess Epoch was at 0.2.5.2 at a time or something. No true night is pitch black and should never be in Arma 3 (epoch) but even Bugemia made it worse. Previously night time enabled you to see shadowy figures even at 1 km away just that it was hard to use LR scopes. Current nights (haven't played for a while) are just usually too dark so maybe that's why players hate it. There can be a middle ground to satisfy people who hate nights and people who want nights. Just make nights less dark without necessity to use NVG all the time.
  4. new villian?

    Too bad there is not a single populated server which has night enabled ;) Every such server is baby day mode 24/7. It needs villains that are harder to kill or maybe come in swarms. But focusing on night is bad idea since most people hate it for some reason. Pew pew in a night is challenging and kids these days forgot what games used to be in the 90s and early 00s. They used to be challenging, not holding your hand. But I am rambling here.
  5. Epoch Dead?

    I just need 2-5 good servers to choose from without BM bullshit, no tanks or AI (except Epoch original AI) and keeping middle mouse button FREE from advertisements and regular bullshit many admins still try to push. Middle mouse button (and scrolling) is only for opening doors and interacting with environment like Arma 3 intended. Don't touch it. Haven't played epoch for few months now, but only because want some new features, preferably, new enemies. I am actually happy that servers are dying, there is no need for 50 servers for such a small mod in comparison. 10-20 is ok, but even they, at least most of them, won't have more than 10 players at a time. Always preferred Vanilla epoch and miss PureEpoch server I used to play for a week until it closed. I see I said nothing new here I haven't told before, still wanted to give a shout for this great mod. It's better than DayZ mess for sure.
  6. Can't place floor without it falling

    if walls are built correctly, snapped in place, not placed using free mode, any floor should snap. But you need support for that. Either do it old way using stud walls as support, or current feature of ghost mode, by placing one floor sideways (horizontally, not vertically) as support for the second floor which should snap to a cinder wall or whatever you have. If it is a complicated game.
  7. Can't place floor without it falling

    Not sure what your problem is, but will try to guess. Build first floor sideways (you gonna remove it later), meaning clip it using ghost mode into the walls whatever. As long as it stay in place we do not care about the direction. Once it is finished build second floor on top of the first one normally, using ghost mode snapping and everything however you like. It should snap correctly and finish. After that remove the first floor. Proceed with other areas using this method. It may seem time consuming at first (but wood is free) but it is fool proof, I have been building sky bases with this.
  8. Chopper spawns

    I agree, helicopters should be hard to maintain and find. And especially to buy.
  9. Garage Doors not working Epoch Server

    I know this bug. One of the "solutions" I found is wait for server restart. Or move away around 1000 meters from a base and then come back. Unless you are locked in, of course. :D I also have a feeling it is a server issue.
  10. tanoa lag

    It is more detailed map, I suppose. In general I have a bit lower FPS on Tanoa too compared to Altis.
  11. Ah, had no idea, thanks!
  12. Make Epoch great again! (Endgame motivation)

    Yeah black market not shown on map would be one of the things that I would like other servers who have BM to implement. Otherwise it is just like playing in editor, choose whatever outfit and gun and go blasting non-stop at AI. Just boring.
  13. Make Epoch great again! (Endgame motivation)

    Ok, so I think Epoch suffers the most from lack of survivability aspect even though it claims in description about "harsh enviroment", base mod is as peaceful as Disney Movie. It was the same with DayZ SA but they made a little bit of progress in current builds. So while server admins will do what server admins do (disable everything and make it easy peasy KOTH EXILE style arena PVP. Why not just use Exile mod for that?), what could be done by developers to differentiate Epoch mod from other mods (and maybe make it more like Breaking Point slightly) is this: 1.) Food scarcity, by default (sure it can be edited, but I will only talk about base mod), animals spawn just fine. Kill them, get meat, make fire, cook. Cosy. 2.) Deadlier antagonists (sure some of it will come in far future updates) 3.) Diseases, radiation zones, some danger that can not be seen (we have radiation stats already, possibly will come in far future). 4.) Visual impairment due to the factors above (I loved blurry vision in early DayZ SA builds, it made it so much more realistic and fun trying to navigate when you don't see shit after losing blood) 5.) Removal of safezones. They are pointless and break immersion. Japanese server KongariBacon did it the best. Admin left only brown traders. Trading was dangerous. It should be. 6.) Scarcity of all weapons and ammo above 6.5mm, scarcity of ghillie and wet suits (since they are not craftable like in DayZ SA, it could only be done artificially by making them spawn less, same with armour vests, helmets). 7.) Making gas stations almost empty, and some completely empty at random. Mad Max style. 8.) Vehicle should cost not 1000-2750 crypto, but 10 times more. Same with guns. Just make everything 10 times more expensive. Viper's server, while having only stupid Black Market traders, on the other hand did it very well by making i.e. VTOL planes cost several hundreds of thousands of crypto as far as I remember. Maybe a bit too extreme, but he understood the idea at least. Other vehicles were expensive too. 9.) To be continued.
  14. MXM doesn't fit into carry all backpack

    Yes, in vanilla Arma 3, I have no argument here against. But this is Epoch and if Navids and even LRR can fit inside a backpack, smaller MXM should fit in too. Though I would also like if devs made all bigger sniper rifles not fit inside a backpack, for example, MXM, Cyrus, Mar10, Navid, SPMG, Lynx, LRR, what else, can't remember. Just a thought.
  15. Epoch Dead?

    Sappers are great, and cultists are amazing, especially when they spawn at night time (which is disabled on every server). They add a lot to the survival feeling. Unfortunately they are all disabled on most servers and we are left with KOTH style pvp only, where you do not have to worry about anything else, just other players. Saying "people do not like this and that" is not a good argument. I think it is the server owners who do not like Epoch antagonists are the real problem, not players.
