These Downloads are done manually by Dwarden, and he currently has very little time to take care of it so they are a bit rare to find currently.

After realising its the profiling build that fixes this. Its actually not beneficial to zeuses. Using Zeusing and knowing that Q whatever view would raise elevation has been a critical thing. But with this change, changes it so that it goes "up" which would be along the terrain if facing down. 

Just wanted to add my two cent, as it drastically effects myself and others that currently run the build while zeusing, with mods like zeus enhanced. (But yes, I could turn it off), but if its gunna be pushed to main build then I would at least want to say something.

Greets 2 all & super thanks in advance 🙂

I've read but am still confused; If I get this, does it eliminate the need for me to get the exe packs from Google Drive / Dropbox ? Or do I need to wait for GD / DB updates?

My profiling build is v2.04.147965

The exe packs on Google Drive / Dropbox are manual secondary uploads of the steam branch

ok, sorry, still confused  :-\  again, sorry, and thank you  🙂

 

If I already have the profiling branch active from Steam, do I need to download anything off Google Drive or Dropbox at all?

- as in the GD DB links are backups of the the same Profiling build exe's I have from Steam  ?

- I just need to add "Arma 3 Profiling Branch Companion Mod" to my already existing Steam based Profiling build to get these benefits ?

As Dedmen said, you only need steam branch to have this version, steam does handle the rest. Forget about drive or Dropbox.
The companion mod is just for the benefit of those extra features. If you see the change log at the end there's a separate list of changes, those are the ones that if you want them, you need the companion mod loaded.
