Over The Top is a world war 1 based mod for the simulation game ArmA 2 CO
Very well done!
Warning, there is an error in your video during the First World War, there was no airborne system.
Belgium is in my country, in the capture of Fort Eben-Emael, the principle of parachute was invented to take the fortress and night.
From what I can tell, parachutes were not used by pilots because it encouraged them to abandon their planes. However, due to the success they have had saving lives of people in observations balloons, parachutes came into use (still quite limited use and mostly by the Germans) but they did use them. Mind you, I could be and probably am completely wrong about this and they probably shouldn't have parachutes anyway.
You both must keep in mind that the parachutes are still there because we have yet to look in to removing them, so though yes you have pointed out a problem its a problem we already know but have yet to deal with and probably won't for some time.
Great first trailer! The planes look amazing and I like how you can control the machineguns while flying, but is it possible to get rid of parachutes? It really blows the immersion seeing a pilot bail out from his ww1 fighter and pull a parachute.
Read my above reply :)
But I am happy you enjoyed the trailer, we have Andrew to thank for this ^_^
Any way to implement working bayonets? I kind of doubt it (especially since DayZ had kind of wonky melee at best, and no bayonets if I recall), but it'd be a nice function if it's possible.
I44, the WW2 mod for Arma has working bayonets, we are seeing if we can't trade them the system for something in return :)
