Cold War Rearmed III

Recommended Posts

cwr3_logo_beta.png

Cold War Rearmed III is a community project to recreate the experience of the great and unique Cold War Crisis and Resistance campaigns from Operation Flashpoint™ (later known as Cold War Assault).
Our main focus is keeping the atmosphere from the original game, while taking advantage of Bohemia Interactive's modern engine and gameplay enhancements.

 

Once again, you can witness the confrontation between the Soviet Union and the United States spiraling into a shooting war over the Malden islands, a chain of isles in the middle of nowhere...

 

Welcome to the third return of the legendary Cold War Rearmed modification!


Please see the links below for SP/MP Missions and the legendary Cold War Crisis campaign.

 

For all missions, the CUP CWC terrains are used. We'll come up with new versions of these ever popular terrains, but that's also far away. Jakerod is good, but he also can't create terrains with pressing a button or two. 🙂

 

Note: Some uniforms and other items are moved from the core Mod to the USMC, VDV and VMF Expansions. This was necessary because in the end there was a huge mess of all kind of items.

So if you're missing an item in an mission or in the editor: Load these Expansions and they should be back.

 

Now, this huge Mod would not have been possible without* The CUP team, which created not only one of the most popular Mods but serve as a base for CWR III.
* 3 Commando Brigade : M939 Trucks and SCUD launcher.
* Basher : OPFOR uniforms, equipment, headgear textures
* Batteriefuhrer : Responsible for most of the unit textures.
* beppe_goodoldrebel : Vests from his '80s pack.
* Bossman : Propaganda material
* ColdWarChris : MERDC and C-130 textures.
* DSabre : Sopwith Camel model and textures.
* EMSI : Sharing his UI config wisdom with us.
* Freddo : Option to enable/disable Spotlight in Addon Options.
* Ghost : Couple of scripts still being used in our missions.
* hcpookie : Proper working MM-1 grenade launcher
* joker006 : Fixed the Trabant and Bus models so they actually work.
* Lakarak : Edited SSh-40 Russian Helmet Model
* Lorenluke : Improved our Scud launcher script
* max1048 : Soviet equipment meshes (6B3, 6B5, vests)
* maxjoiner : Thank you for supplying us with a working female character.
* MaxPower : Contributing his truly splended AH-1 and Trabant models.
* Mikero : Without his tools, this would be a pile of junk. Seriously.
* Motta : M1 Helmet Model
* Shuko : His Taskmaster script used everywhere.
* sinmercardo : New US Army uniforms
* slatts : Sharing a fair amount of his former Conflict '85 stuff
* Stagler : Models and configs fixing, again and again (usually after I touched them).
* Temon : Thanks for your OFP face textures.
* Tini : Models/Textures
* Trento : Models/Textures
* Urban : Adding/Fixing various vehicle lights.
* vilas : Mini Cooper, Skoda Rapid, UAZ-452 and T-64 models.
* Xeno/Xacino : Soviet uniform (M69, M55/63), equipment, headgear (berets) meshes
* Everyone else we accidently forgot

Top work guys, I mean it took you 7 years but hey, better late than never 😉

 

But seriously, it's good to see the spirit of OFP back, Looks like I don't have to keep remaking missions anymore! Can't wait to get stuck into the campaign again. Thanks heaps.

It only took me 7 years to finally step into Arma 3. Don't ask me why it took so long, stubbornness I guess. 🙂
 

I wouldn't be too sure about not remaking missions anymore though.

Yep, thank you very much CWR & CUP! To say that the work is appreciated would be a huge understatement, thank you guys and Godspeed!

 

You may want to report (top right corner of a post) the previous dev thread in discussion section for closure though.

Wolle! Congrats for the whole CWRIII team for the release, I´ve just blinked and the first beta release is on (I was on the impression it was planned for 2021, so got caught up on total suprise) many kudos and anxious for all the improvements to come... 8D

Just an annoying question, as I (and I assume a part of this community too) can´t for the life of me use steam mods (only misisons work), are you guys planning to host your files on Armaholic and/or external mirrors as gdrive, one drive, dropbox and the likes?

 

Cheers and again, kudon for the beta release!

In the meanwhile you can use Steam Workshop Downloader. It's an online tool, no need to install anything on your machine.

We definitely will provide an alternative download sometime soon. Maybe with the next big update.

Thing is that with changes made on an almost daily basis again, it's damn hard to keep multiple mirrors updated. For this case, Steam is a big help (Can't believe I'm saying this) 🤣

 

I'd try that Workshop Downloader, I'm using it too for grabbing missions cause I have enough of searching around where the darn file is stored at.

Did you want any bug reports from the missions or are you already aware of them?

Please do so. There might be plenty of them. So no worries, I'm not scared to hear about.

Oki. Got a few more, but just played commander mission and its missing the briefing and tasks and audio, just gives you waypoints. All 6 missions I've tried so far get a script error saying its missing the wallpaper when you get mission complete. (such as vid below)


Aside from that no mission breaking stuff I came across, that side is all lovely.

The missing wallpaper is known, but I check them again to be sure.

 

Missing briefing is caused by laziness, will be fixed in next update as well.

 

Update:

Commander fixed

Sniper Team completely redone

When you tell your buddy that you can take him only as far as Petrovice and the sky starts laughing in TV3-117...
