As the next evolution of the ARMA series' backbone, the Real Virtuality 4 engine brings with it a host of changes and improvements that bring ARMA 3 into the new generation. with significant improvements to animations and sounds, combined with the introduction of DirectX 11 and PhysX, the battlefields of ARMA have never felt more real.

DirectX 11

Arma 3 moves full steam ahead into the next generation of gaming with the inclusion of DirectX 11, allowing for a host of visual improvements that complement the beautiful Mediterranean landscapes of The Republic of Altis and Stratis, above and below the sea. But alongside visual improvements comes performance improvements, allowing for vastly improved rendering techniques that allow for largest battlefields ever seen in the Arma series.

PhysX

Arma 3 has focused intensely on improvements to the handling of animations. The introduction of Combat Pace, a special movement pace designed for faster responses in close quarter combat, and Adjusted Stances, which allow you to get behind and peer over cover better than ever, combined with various other improvements, has created the smoothest and most intuitive control experience the Arma series has seen.

Sound Engine

One of the most critical parts of creating a believable world is sound, and Arma 3 is no exception. Representing a significant step forward in the simulation of sound, with a single rifle shot consisting of various different sounds, the proper simulation of the speed of sound, different sounds when inside and outside of vehicles, and more, Arma 3 puts you right in the middle of a living, breathing environment.

Silvador

Using algorithmic approach, the 'Silvador Tree Generator' program is employed to handle the creation of plants in Arma 3. Licensed from Bohemia Interactive Simulations, this software helps to create a vast array of realistic plant life - adding even more diversity and detail to the Arma 3's atmospheric Altis and Stratis environments.

Our objective at ModDB is to preserve modding history when possible. It's a rewarding challenge that requires 10 servers to run, 15 terabytes of space, and 10 gbps of bandwidth (all constantly growing). Occasionally communities close down as happened with GameFront (which some of the original creators are now painstakingly restoring) and unfortunately it's happening today to withSIX.com.

For the unaware withSIX.com is a modding community and application that began 10 years ago, with a passion for ARMA mods. As ARMA grew and mods like DayZ and PLAYERUNKNOWN's Battle Royale burst onto the scene, their popularity exploded. But over time change has come, and rather than do a poor job summarizing their history, it's probably best you read their teams farewell post on Medium:

Despite many efforts to introduce interesting and innovating features over the years, we must concede that the costs to maintain and run the servers have become too high. As less and less users are using our services, we reached the point of no return. We are at a point in gaming history where the results of modding have never been felt greater, but sadly only a few true supporters remain and its future remains uncertain.

When we discovered this news we reached out, and their team graciously volunteered their time to help us archive content submitted to their site, which you can browse here on withSIX. Unfortunately we were unable to keep their mod launcher and custom code running, but did our best to organize the mods in an easily accessible manner. NOTE: We attempted to filter out mods pulled from 3rd party sources and only keep a handful of mods available via withSIX.com. If you are the creator of one of these mods and would like to claim ownership of your content or have it removed - please reach out, we'd be happy to assist.

Finally we'd also like to acknowledge the other amazing dedicated ARMA modding communities (like withSIX), which continue to go strong today: Official Bohemia Forums, ARMAHOLIC and their Workshop communities. You'll be missed withSIX, thanks for supporting such an amazing mod community for so long!
