ArmA 3: Even butterflies cast shadows

Initially spotted by Rock Paper Shotgun the guys at PC Games Hardware checked out Ambient Life of ArmA 3 even further and made a video that shows the mighty possibilities of the Splendid Camera feature and the shadows that may be casted by small insects like butterflies or bees. (ArmA 3, PC)

Now, if only the landscape itself would cast dynamic shadows. Even if you are laying on the shaded side of a mountain, you are still bright as if you were standing in the sunlight, which makes it much easier to spot people laying down on a hill 500 meters away.

how does butterfly shadows help games play better and become more fun?

By making it more immersive.

Arma is about realism. Not fun as it's a simulator. Realism is fun for some people. Whatever makes it more immersive makes the experience more believable. Hence more fun for the people the game was made for. the more realistic and immersive they make Arma the more fun it is for ME.

Arma is not a game meant for the CoD or Battlefield crowd. There's a reason why Bohemia Interactive is perfectly fine with selling a few hundred thousand copies of this game. It's a niche title

believe it or not the immersive quality of a game is a fun factor for a lot of people...

one of my favorite things about metro 2033 is how immersive it is especially when played without the HUD

ARMA 2 was hampered by a really clunky interface, poor animations and dialogue from NPC's etc but ARMA 3 pretty much fixes that and already the mods are coming like Warfare and the insanely addictive Wasteland and its only a matter of time before Dayz and mods like Invasion 1944 get ported across. I love the battlefield series but you can have that and more in ARMA 2 and 3 with far better detailed and much larger terrain and vehicles and realistic weapons.
