SITUATION
The development team is now experiencing the freezing beauty of European winter. All the more reason for us to run away to the warmer regions of Altis and Tanoa! Over the past two weeks, we've introduced several platform improvements, released three security updates, and announced a new contest for our creative community. In parallel, our teams in various physical locations are also hard at work on the various deliverables of the 2017 roadmap. Let's take a look!

Bohemia Interactive & NVIDIA present the #Armachinima Awards
Create the best cinematic Arma 3 video ever, win a top-tier NVIDIA graphics card



Channel your inner-Spielberg, get your Scott on, and unleash the Bayhem. Welcome to the #Armachinima Awards! In this new contest, we’re inviting you to deliver the best Arma 3 cinematic video ever created – to entertain the troops, and to win a top-tier NVIDIA graphics card!

https://youtu.be/etEabV4DqcI
What’s a machinima? The dictionary suggests: machinima / məˈʃɪnɪmə / noun: the practice or technique of producing animated films through the manipulation of video game graphics. For the purpose of this contest, an ‘armachinima’ is a directed cinematic video using Arma 3 game graphics. Whether it’s long or short, a full-length feature film, a documentary, a trailer, or even just an ‘experience’ – every type of video is welcome, as long as they have cinematic qualities.

So prepare your storyboards, get ready to capture, enlist friends and family for (voice-)acting, and put the Eden Editor to use! But even if you’re not competing, you can participate by voting for the 10 nominees starting from February 14th. Afterwards, the Arma 3 development team will select 3 winners from the nominees, which will be announced in the beginning of March. Aside from glory, 1st place will be awarded a beastly NVIDIA GTX 1080, while 2nd and 3rd place will receive a magnificent NVIDIA GTX 1070 graphics card. The perfect prizes for those who are into gaming and video production! Additionally, all 10 nominees will receive an Arma 3 t-shirt.

To enter the contest, you simply need to send an e-mail to competition@bistudio.com with a YouTube link to your entry AND a download link to the video file itself. Be sure to also include your contact details. The submission deadline is February 13th 09:00 CET (GMT+1).

For more info on the #Armachinima Awards, as well as the full set of contest rules, be sure to check our website at www.arma3.com/armachinima-contest. We’ll also be updating this page with the latest entries, so check back regularly and prepare to vote from February 14th.

Good luck filmmakers, and for those watching, enjoy the show!

OPSUM: Introducing an experimental cooperative scenario

EVALUATION:
One of the latest Arma 3 Dev-Branch updates introduced a prototype of a cooperative scenario called COOP 12 Combat Patrol. The development of this scenario started out as a pet project by our Senior Technical Designer Josef and myself more than two years ago. It's now evolved into what might become an official multiplayer scenario/mode in the game.

However, before that happens, we wanted to share it with you and see whether you like it as much as we do.
