    How many years did it take them to take the hint?

        I'm beginning to think Operation arrowhead should be called ACE2 with a couple new toys.

            Aren't you guys happy?

            I also heard that BI work with some of the ACE guys or something, but I'm not entirely sure.

              Judging by the amount of ACE content in OA, i would assume they did. However as indicated by this latest screen:
              the inventory system seems to lack any weight or space that your equipment should have, so there is no repercussions to loading up one's backpack with dozens of AT missiles or satchels. I don't think I've ever had an issue with ACE backpacks, its probably one of their best implemented features.

                If the Arrowhead backpack system is able to track contents, and is easily accessible as they have mentioned in development I think it would be a good overhaul to the ACE backpacks... That said I am sure that ACE will remodify to work off of the new built in backpack system and reimplement weight/capacity and possibly the existing models they have developed.


                From what I have read/seen The new pack system allows yourself and others to access packs on characters and on ground, while keeping track of what is in them, which is a very nice change.

                  I'd like to see you not being able to take stuff out of your backpack if it is ON your back. Unless you are in a specific animation for it or something (but that would still seem odd). If you want stuff out of it, drop it and get it, then put it back on. The things aren't made for you to magically pull out stanags and such from it while it is strapped on.

                    To be honest, I couldn't be happier if Operation Arrowhead was simply a repackaged ACE2. Although I love and appreciate (most of) what the ACE team has done, BI has the home-field advantage, and that's important coming from a developer's perspective. A little polish on some good ideas that have, admittedly, been seen beforehand from community mods would be a fantastic expansion pack.

                        They look an aweful lot like SCARs

                        Really... =/

                        As for this picture one thing I noticed is if you look in the bottom left you will see the squad leader actually has a working portrait. I wonder if this is just like the main characters from ARMA2 where they had portraits, but it would be very neat to have it so when you spawn in it takes a sort of 'screenshot' of your face to go into that bar, so that you know who's who easier... right?

                          Thats cause they are, as well as the M110 (although with a new stock) and the Bradleys, as well as most likely the Stryker MGS and SLAT variants.
