Advanced Combat Environment (ACE) is a full conversion modification for Armed Assault. The overarching philosophy of ACE is to provide its users with a combat simulation that is both realistic and enjoyable. Our primary mission is to create a wide variety of real world weapons, vehicles, equipment, and tactics so that those playing the ACE modification will be able to better simulate combined arms combat on a modern battlefield. ACE is designed from the bottom up with the goal of encouraging its users to employ real world tactics and strategy (fighting as a team) in order to accomplish realistic military objectives. We strive to create hyper-realism without losing sight that the mod must be playable by the “advanced” user. Our focus is not only on creating coding and scripting which highlights realism but on creating realistic missions on which one may experience the full spectrum of virtual combat.

OK played - cool, but CTD is making me mad. And T-90A armor is to weak - its unplayable. Why crew dismounting vehicle after one hit? To M1A2 i must shot twice - its not balanced and not realistic. Please fix that, I fixed this but game was CTD more often then. And one more thing - soldier cant run like soldiers it runs like pregnant woman - image is flashing and my soldiers is lie on grond and cant do anything - it can happen but not to trained soldier! Also i cant shoot from AK or any other rifles - there is no option for stabilising sights? In sniper - there is but in standard rifles aiming is too hard its look like my soldier have some sick (maybe epilepsy?). In real my hand is shaking all the time, but when i was holding real weapon, with real weight, with real recoil, i hit 92% targets on shootong range and i was doing this first time in life - in this game i cannot even aim to enemy, beacuse sight is aiming somwhere else after i aim some guy. About hit efects on soldiers i even dont speak - nightmare! I had to diable "increased armor" option or something in dificult options.

Hey guys i hate to be a newb, but i just downloaded the full 1.8 client, and now i am having trouble finding how to launch the actual mod. It already installed into my steam/steamapps/common/armed assault/@ACE but that is all, i am having trouble finding a way to launch the game, i also downloaded the 1.9 patch hoping it would come with an install, but still unsure how to use it (like the file type id something i have not seen before so ya), help would be much appreciated, if you want to addd me on steam username is guitamasta. Thanks

hi guys,
i've tried your great mod, and i have to say that tnx to it i've found the motivation to finish arma once again...but during the campaign i've encounter some strange things... in particular during flight missions...when board my chopper the fuel bar is empty for few seconds, so my copilot leaves the chopper and i can't finish the mission without a gunner...this is equivalent for tanks...simply the fuel bar is empty at the beginning and full after a i doing something wrong? -tnx and keep up the good work!!!

Wow, this is outstanding. I am a little shocked its still going strong in 2010. I admit I lost track of this mod. ACE is one of the most ambitious and talented teams out there but Arma is such a relatively small, niche game to begin with. I will have to find my Arma disks now. I uninstalled it when I bought ArmaII but I know this is worth checking out. Anyone who played some of Operation Flashpoint's advanced mods will appreciate what these guys are doing. If you bought Arma and were disappointed I would give this a try anyway. Its really closer to a full conversion in many ways. The self-description is rather modest but I should play it again now asap.
