EVALUATION

Comrades-in-arms! The long-awaited Arma 3 Creator DLC: ČSLA Iron Curtain 1.1 content update is here!

We will not be listing in detail all the fixes, improvements, and minor additions to ČSLA Iron Curtain here. It would probably take the same amount of time as we worked on them, even in addition to updating the unique OPERATIONS Pack available on the Steam Workshop, which recently received a significant extension, including the new Polanek map as a free bonus for all our supporters and subscribers.

So let’s focus on some highlights of update 1.1.

My name is Stefan Keßner, and I am the project lead of The Rotators’ Western Sahara CDLC. As most of you are probably already aware, we have released our 1.1 content update on September 27, 2022. While offering a fair amount of tweaks and bug fixes, it also almost doubles the amount of playable content that came with our initial release back in November, 2021! Today I would like to offer a little insight on our thoughts and intentions when working on this update over the past couple months.

INFO: 9th Anniversary, Live Ops Status
PRECEDENCE: Flash



SITUATION
Wow, another year has flown by since we last provided an official status update on Arma 3's Live Ops development. And that also means we're celebrating the game's 9th anniversary this month. 9 years since the release of 1.0 "Gamma", let that sink in! Even more special is the fact that a lot of new players are still joining the ranks. Welcome to you all! We hope you enjoy the vast amount of content available to you, official and from the community alike. You may not know this, but we used to publish these blogs every single week during prime-time development. Things have slowed down, as we've discussed in our preview reports, but the platform is still supported by a small crew. There have continued to be platform updates and many experimental branch releases. And the Creator DLC program is still seeing plenty of activity too. In the broader Armaverse, much has happened of course. The Enfusion era of Arma was started with the early access release of Arma Reforger. Many of Bohemia's developers are working on those projects now, working very hard to stabilize and expand that young platform. In this report we will try to provide a status update on how Arma 3's development was influenced, if at all. Read on and see you in-game!

Full SITREP


To keep the celebration of the 9th anniversary of Arma 3 going, we're bringing you another set of awesome community content in this month's Community Radar!

Thank you for your years of creativity and development!
