That's 3000 polies, but definatley not 3000 triangles. You're wasting polygons all over the place. Besides that it's inaccurate.

Compare it with this:

I totally agree with MehMan and as said before, you don't even need to make high-poly weapons to make them look good. Maybe to make normal maps, but come on... why waste time?

I previously downloaded VTE prior to the release of this last update and everything worked fine. All of the maps came up as did the units.
I downloaded the newer version today and pasted the files in my addon folder.
but now, when I log on it tells me that a config file cannot be found. So I downloaded everything again and found the file. I copied it into the folder and I still get the same message and I cannot even get the game to open.

I did earlier today, but when I went into the mission editor, none of the VTE units or maps were present?

What am I missing?
It worked fine prior to this update but now I get nothing.

i understand there is bugs such as floating grass ect ect.

Floating jungle block objects have been fixed in the upcoming version.

QUOTE
er... not to be evil, but weapons look weird
hope you'll change them guys, I really like VTE since the OFP days!

We are now using in house VTE OFP ported weapons, some Vilas and Skaven's weapons. None of the screenshotted weapon models aren't included in the latest release.

QUOTE
Is that in a large mission, or by testing it with a single soldier in the editor? (That is a frequently made mistake)

VTE takes good care that all models have proper resolution LODs which end less than 100 polys. For the soldier models I put together I made the LODs which in fact wont end less than hundred, they are in range of 160 or so (there is still tweaking to do heh). I play tested them with probably more than hundred soldiers in a screen at one time running around, no problems at all.

There will be no FPS drop in VTE because bad modeling.

QUOTE

I suggest you re-download and make sure you are using the latest released version, found on VTE official forum of course wink.gif

I would recommend making a new MOD dir for new version, this way if there is any problems, you still have your working older MOD dir if you need to just jump into the action.

By downloading the latest released version, you will have no problems running it with ArmA v1.14. If you do, follow the install guide step by step, it will most likely fix any earlier install errors.

Hi
I,like to start by saying what an exelent mod, cant wait till its all finnished.
Now I was wondering if and how i can get the doors to open on certain bunkers and buildings. When i place a bunker/building on the map and then try to open the door i get a sqs error. Is this likely to be sorted soon or can i get the sqs script.
Any help would be great as i'v set up a clan around the mod and want to start a campain.

Thanks
Hornster

This is the Vietnam: The Experience Final Alpha release (05-08-09), it is our sixth release for ArmA. This release has been done after heavy multiplayer testing and several suggestions and requests from the players.

Pre alpha means that this is work in progress. Usually the release cycles go from alpha to beta to release candidate into the final release. This release is still incomplete but the earlier versions have been proven on MP to be very enjoyable, this release should enhance the MP even more. We just want to warn anyone who is interested to not get their hopes up, VTE team is not in the business to overhyping their work.
    - Many models have no normal or specular maps.
    - Soldier models with bad texturing.
    - No missions or campaigns (except on our dedicated server).
    - No shadows on ported objects.
    - A "few" errors on arma.RPT file...
The bad list continues.

DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS UNLESS YOU ACCEPT THAT THIS IS WORK IN PROGRESS.

This release contains the following: A1 Skyraider, ACH-47A Gunship, AH1 Cobra, A4 Skyhawk, A6 Intruder, B52 Stratofortress, C130 Hercules, CH-34, CH-47 Chinook, F5 (camo and grey), F4E Phantom (camo and grey), F105 Thunderchief, MC130 Combat Talon, MiG-17 (two camos), MiG-19, UH-1 Huey (slick, dustoff and gunships), O1 Birddog, OH-6, S56 Sikorsky, LSSC, PBR, two sampans, USS Kittyhawk, M48 Patton, M113 ACAV (3 machine guns), M551 Sheridan, PT76, SA-2 SAM, T55 and ZU23. For personal weapons we have: AK47, AR-15 (Colt Commando), CAR-15 GL, Bren2, Browning, DP27, Enfield, Garand, Ithaca, Kar 98K, L1A1, M1 Carbine, M3A1/SD, M14, M16A1, M21, M39 Hush Puppy, M45 Swedish K, M60/shorty, M72 LAW, M79, M1911, Mas36, Mosin 38, Mosin Nagant, MP40, PPD40, PPS43, PPSh, PRC25, RPD, RPG2, RPG7, SKS, Sten/SD, Stoner, SVT, Thompson, Type63, Type 56, Type 68, Uzi and XM177e.

Config for all the VTE v0.4 soldiers (in theory basic OFP VTE v0.4 missions should work with little tweaking), there is now new models for most of the infantry branches. And of course the VTE objects/terrains, including two prototype terrains and few single tree terrains for us to try out in MP environment.

Disclaimer: If you create missions with this release, be prepared to overhaul them completely in the future when we release next version, we guarantee you that classnames and stuff will change to break your missions. However the soldier classnames are now set, I would not think they will get changed, but nothing can be promised at this moment. Be prepared to expect bugs and broken things in this release. More mission porting compatibility has been added to this version.

Screenshots: I run ArmA with all details set to low/very low and disabled, but I did take some shots from our MP sessions with the first release, check them out in VTE ArmA screenshots topic. However here is the earlier screenshots by granQ:

A4
O1 Birddog
M79 grenade launcher
VietCong face (old vietcong).
CH-34
GI Joe (old Army soldier).
NVA (old NVA soldier).
M113
Weapons 21st June 2007.
Huey's

Here is few screenshots of the new stuff.

SEAL


SEAL 2

SEAL 3

SEAL 4

SEAL 5

LRRP ERDL


LRRP ERDL 2

LRRP ERDL 3

LRRP ERDL 4

Future plans: We have alot of work to do, all of the models need to be reworked, textures done, terrains... configs... oh boy, dont get me started, anyone care to help? Hehe. I'm looking forward to working for the NAM stuff, it will be great.

Please join to PMC Tactical (VTE) dedicated server to test MP with this release, the more testing and bug reports we have, the better we can develop this further. Read details of the addons etc in PMC Tactical (VTE) dedicated server ADDONS topic. Hope to see you all on the server.

Vietnam: The Experience online manual can be found here.

When you see something missing or wrong in the manual, please send feedback to us in our forum, thank you.
