Real Battle RTS - my entry in Make Arma not War contest

I always liked playing computer games and recently started developing my games as well. I'm only fan of simulation types of games, being in the past actively involved in Microsoft Flight Simulator X community and more recently I'm a big fan of Bohemia's Interactive Arma titles.

I'm both playing the games, but mostly I'm very passionate in modding and creating addons. Did a few in the past for FSX, and in Arma I've done an single player adaptation of the DayZ mod called Day of Survival.

As I was in a short one week long holiday last week I got an idea to make a short RTS mission for Arma 3. Short translated in a full Saturday and half of Sunday of codding (Arma SQF scripting is similar to Java), but at first play I knew I hit gold. It was really balanced and fun to play.
Monday I left in a 5 days trip to Rome an then when I got back kept doing some updates. Sunday morning I got the crazy idea of taking part in the Make Arma Not War competition that was closing on Tuesday so had few time to make lots of neede adjustments.

Something I'm very good at is procrastinating. I've had in plan to build myself a portfolio website for several months but kept postponing it. Just wasn't in the mood.

Not sure what happened yesterday, but after two weekends of non stop work at my entry in Make Arma Not War contest (which started jut as a simple thing for my pleasure) divided by a week of holiday in Rome, I was still in work non stop mood so I built alegrI Interactive portfolio website and set up this blog. All in all just took a few hours!

There are still some rough edges, but now I just hope I can regularly post on it about various topics in the world of online and development, as well as my boring life.
