I have been doing a lot of thinking about what I AM MISSING to get the best experience in Arma 3 and some other games I play or would like to start back playing.

First, I am missing on being able to truly fly all the helicopters and jets/planes in Area 3. Whenever I say truly flying I don't mean using the mouse and keyboard. I am talking about taking real control of a helicopter, jet or plane. In side Arma 3 controller config or in the config the Flight Model can be changed to Advanced but you don't want to change to this unless you have some kind of setup such as a Throttle stick, Joystick and even Pedals.

So I've decided that I am going to purchase the Saitek X52 Pro shown here:

http://www.saitek.com/uk/ ... prod-bak/x52pro.html

And purchase the pedals found here:

https://www.logitechg.com ... ht-sim-rudder-pedals

The joystick and thruster will give me what I need to fly and the pedals is needed for all helicopters, jets and planes because of the rudder...

Second, I was thinking okay I am still missing something cut couldn't put my finger on it and boooooom it hit me, I am missing Virtual Reality Goggles that has the capabilities of TRACKir which most of them do. TRACKir allows you to turn your head and your character's will turn without the characters body turning just like in real life. 

So I am also going to be purchasing the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive. Don't know which one I will get just yet. The Vive's are cheaper and they work so I may go that route or find a totally different set that works...

Thoughts, suggestions?

I already have the Logictech Extreme 3D pro stick so I am going to just find some peddals and thrust stick somewhere on the net.

I was on the COD4 Sniper server earlier to test everything out to see if it works. Had some issues at first with Punkbuster not updating because I guess the newer updated PB is no longer supported with COD4 so I found an older version that works with it and now it loads the maps fine.

Can maps be made in the newer CODs or can you have your own Dedicated Server in the new CODs?

punkbuster is not running on the server so you can disable it, no one runs PB anymore no point in having it

cod 4 is still the best cod platform for building mods and maps and some of the modern maps have been made for cod 4.

i am very rusty but i still have a lot of stuff to build new maps around

as far as i know dedicated server support has been very weak on the last cod games

the last cod game with dedi servers and map and mod tools was black ops 3 in 2015 and the map tools took almost a year to be released from 2006 to 2016 they were no mod tools and some of the games did not have unranked servers for modding

That’s a shame Eagle about COD. That reminds me of Battlefield 2 which had mod tools and a map editor then after BF2 they quit supporting mods and there was no more map editor. That when I quit playing the Battlefield series. Mod tools and map editors is what makes a game great IMHO. They started creating games for consoles then porting them to PC and that’s why they don’t release the tools.

That’s why I love Arma series and it’s only going to get better with Arma. I’ve asked Rocky to send me the Sniper mod so I can fix the rotation problem.
