1st/3rd Person view shows only the landscape
Need More Info, NormalPublic


When player is logged and respawn in the same place, as the last time he went to lobby (as inside a house), the 1st/3rd person view just shows field and grass - as you've been outside a city - despite you can check your current position on the map. No city, houses, objects or cars.

The action menu on screen works (as use ATM machine, Inventory) but you cannot see them.

Thank you for the report. Is this a specific thing for this server or does it happen with other wasteland servers as well?

Hi Wulf,

It happens in every server.

In my attempts to solve the problem, I realized 2 days ago that the bug it is related to group profile. When I changed my profile, choosing a player without Unit, the problem does not happen:

  • from: Unit mode (e.g. [unit_name] nickname)
  • To: 'nickname'

Of course it's not 100%, because I would like to keep using my Unit profile to play with my team.

I hope this could help you. Regards!

Ok, so if I understand correctly it only happens to the profile/account that is part of the Arma 3 unit?

Yes, correct.

Have you tried this with a different unit/group if it does the same thing? Try creating your own unit attach it to a profile and test if the same thing happens.

Also are you the only one from the unit that is experiencing this issue? Perhaps leaving and rejoining the unit might help.
