I've been at it for several years and though it is still rough, there are plenty of fun features that I'd like to release now.  Understand that this is even more pre-alpha than Dayz has been for some time and I'll be happy to hear suggestions, bug reports, and get some help making it better.  If you can take screenshots (F12 in steam) of problem areas I'll focus on them   You can sail sloops, gunboats and yawls, bombard your enemies with naval and field artillery, and erect tents and field fortifications that you can take apart and move, and more.  Includes 18th century uniforms, hats, knapsacks, muskets, spontoons, shovels and a spyglass.    In this first release: Tangier Island terrain -- a number of islands scattered across a broad expanse of sea somewhere in the Caribbean.  The map is actually based on a real world location built from LIDAR and high-res orthoimages, but I've moved it and altered it to be a fantasy location for pirate dens, shipping and trading posts, and shipwreck adventure.   July 4, Independence Day. This zip includes only the terrain and some buildings.  As these are the largest files I'll post the next update with other parts of the mod (and try to limit the number of times you'll have to download the terrain).   July 16 This zip contains the updated Tangier island terrain, soldiers, tents, field fortifications, sloops, gunboats, cannons, and more. https://www.dropbox.com/s/aijt3msyuz15qtn/BLACKPOWDER_JULY16.zip?dl=0 Evil Organ was kind to provide a mirror:  https://www.dropbox.com/sh/skju7u4esbsjsgd/AAD4TCQ1_xW9NdyASseDuhaoa?dl=0   August 19 Quick update -- this only contains ART_Sailing.pbo -- unzip it, and in @ART in your ARMA directory, drop this file in to replace the old one.  Some updates to make sloop fighting more fun.  (you must of course have the rest of the mod already installed to use this) https://www.dropbox.com/s/3uhb5xla0r65tsn/ART_Sailing_pbo_Update_19AUG17.zip?dl=0     Requires ARMA 3 (the map uses vegetation from Tanoa -- can anyone confirm whether those trees are included in the free Malden dlc or if APEX is still required?). Absolutely no use of any part of these files outside of ARMA 3.  You may explore the terrain on your computer for personal use.  Any other use ask me first.
