  1. Hi Community,


    As I was replaying the Air Superiority Mission from the East Wind Campaign I was wondering myself about the Callsigns on the map: https://imgur.com/a/5UsgqJx


    My mouse is hovering over the Squad named "Golf". Now as you can see it is the first squad commanded by Sgt. Cooper but that Helicopter that should pick you up is called Golf 2-2 in the Radio? Can somebody please explain me the numbering system of markers and how units respond in the radio?


    Thx in advance,

    Mister GTX

  2. Hi Community,


    Since Contact came out I was walking around and looking at the placement of objects in the Campaign. In the second mission you get called to a tent which is open on one side and closed on the other one and I would like to do that. Sadly I haven't found a way yet (you can only hide or unhide both doors but not a single one [actually at the decon-tent you can close only 1 door])


    Thx in Advance!

  3. Hello Community,


    I was replaying the Campaing "The East Wind Device" and in the Mission "Air Superiority" there were a few Callsigns and Numbers that confused me.




    My Mouse was hovering over the "Golf" Marker which indicated that it is the "1st Squad under the Command of Seargent Cooper". But when Crossroads called them in the Radio they responded with "Golf 2-2" and I don't know how that adds up. Why is it the First Squad but uses 2-2 on the Radio?


    Thx for Answers!

    Here comes another platform feature for Tanks DLC to have fun with :) Our passionate programmers have added an option to switch the fire modes when using missile launchers, bombs, etc. And more importantly, added few different ways in which the missile can reach its target. 

    In short - you can now switch the missile's flight from a simple direct trajectory to one that better utilizes the tank's weaker armour - e.g. the notorious Top attack. We'll try to add more info as the time flies and as the features get utilized more by the game's assets. As well as we'll update the documentation so you can try out what's under the black box.

    Bohemia Interactive said something about new vehicles, will there be new Anti Tank Weapons aswell? Because sometimes I wish I could fire a rocket when prone, that would definitely help in many situations!

    Dynamic Universal War System (DUWS)





    DUWS 0.8b

    Armaholic mirror (0.8b)

    You can also access the mission with the Steam Workshop.

    Older versions:


    The DUWS generate randomly a mini campaign, with all the enemy zones to capture being randomly generated.

    Or you can also choose to manually place your HQ and the enemy and easily make your own unique "campaign".

    The key here is to have maximum replayability, where the player can setup his own campaign or let the DUWS create everything randomly for him.

    You can play with the DUWS on any island you want, you just have to rename the .pbo file.

    Example: DWS.stratis.pbo >> DWS.chernarus.pbo


    Put the .pbo inside your "Steam\SteamApps\common\Arma 3\Missions" folder.

    When you are asked to choose the campaign settings, just use the default parameters and click "start".


    *Play the way you want:

    -Play as a lone wolf or as a SF team, using support assets and gadgets and perform side missions

    -Control your personnal squad of troopers and fight against the OPFOR

    -Control several squads, vehicles and supports and try to retake the island from the enemy

    -...or a mix of all of them

    *Persistent player stats througout the campaigns/missions, allowing the player to play a multi island driven campaign

    *Unlock abilities throughout the campaigns as you gain experience (persistent)

    *Pretty much every location is randomly generated on the map, from the HQ to the enemy zones and side mission locations.

    *Side mission selection screen. Missions are generated randomly.

    *Play the DUWS on any island you want to.

    *VAS by Tonic (Armory)

    *Several support options to unlock (UAV, Arty, Personnal FLIR, VAS, ...)

    *You can define by yourself the HQ, the enemy zones, or just the HQ and let the DUWS generate the zones automatically. You can also let the DUWS create everything by itself. Basicly you decide the level of randomization there is.

    *WARCOM(War Commander) system. BLUFOR forces will try to capture the island, war escalates as the campaign progress.

    *Dynamic weather. At the start of the campaign, you may choose the type of weather (mediterranean, temperate, tropical, arid...). The weather will then be randomly generated according to these parameters.

    *Fully support the High Command module





    None, you can play ArmA III vanilla or use all the addons you want: islands, weapons, gear.

    Note that the DUWS will not show addons that adds BLUFOR units/vehicle, since they are added by hand.

    However, addons that add OPFOR vehicles will be used, since OPFOR vehicles are taken directly from the cfgVehicles classes.


    This mission can be played in coop. Regarding the nature of the DUWS, it must be run on a listen server. Does not work on a dedicated server. I suggest adding a password to your game, so only friends can join and no random guy will be able to trash your game.

    See the ingame manual for gameplay changes.

    when the player was manually placing the HQ, the DUWS was broken. Added another step in the init.sqf
    zones manual placement was also broken, hopefuly fixed now. Check the init.sqf if you are placing the zones by hand.

    You can remix, tweak, and build upon my work non-commercially, as long as you credit me and license your creations under these same identical terms.

    Click here if you want to help me develop the DUWS by creating little prefabs wich are randomly picked when a zone is created.


    Mission made by kibot.

    VAS script by Tonic.

    Thanks to Kempco for the mapsize script.

    Armaholic for the mirrors

    Everyone who's giving feedbacks, thank you.

    Everyone who's supportive, thank you :).

    How to place manually the HQ and the enemy zones ?

    1)Read the init.sqf more info.

    2)Check this to see wich values you have to modify inside the init.sqf

    I just realized the name of the DUWS is a bit similar to the Dynamic War Sandbox. This mission has nothing to do with it, it's just a coincidence.


    Hey :D


    A long time after this post I am writing to you regarding a serious problem I am currently experiencing.

    Every time arma 3 crashes I have to start over and create everything new because the savefiles get lost / erased or whatever.

    And yes there are 1000 tutorials on how to save the files BUT all those tutorials require me to download from armaholic (the download there doesn't work, I just get the "page.php" file) but there is no help if I subscribed it via steam.


    Kibot, you are my last hope regarding this problem and I hope you read this and that you can help me because that mod is awesome :D

    Sorry for english mistakes :)

    In the combined armed showcase, the blackfoot is destroyed too fast and (almost) everytime (99%)

    The air support is quite useless - so is the marshall.

    They follow their path and gets hit by AA / AT or grenade launcher everytime within seconds.


    Could that be improved?


    Another thing I wanted to mention is that it seems to me that the marshall WANTS to be destroyed because he drives up to that spot and then just stops even under heavy enemy fire :( 


    *Extra Note* 

    The new Fighter Showcase could also be improved. I tried to land on the carrier at the end but there is one parked plane too close to the landing hook and then everything explodes ^^

  7. Hello again dear Community,


    Some of you may have heard of the glorious DUWS (Dynamic Universal War System) which basically creates a small Campaign where the player is the commander of blufor forces. Those missions can be accessed in the "Scenario" Section (at least I did it that way). 


    Since the last 2 days I have a big problem called "Arma 3 crashed". Yesterday I had to reboot my pc (alt + f4, task manager and cmd killing didn't work) and all of my save files of DUWS were gone, completely erased! Normally in the Scenario Tab there is a button called "resume" where you can load the last save but there is just the button "start" so I have to start again :(


    Maybe somebody can tell me a bit more where DUWS stores the saves / files or how I can prevent my saves from being erased.


    *Extra Note*

    I subscribed to the mod in the steam workshop as I was unable to download it from the armaholic site (If I want to download it I just download the Page called "page.php")

    - Armaholic Link:http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=21816

    - Steam Workshop Link: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=167274881&searchtext=


     Thx for any kind of help!

    Warm regards,

    I usually do something like this, or guessing certain units are dead and marking them with 5,8. It's funny when they report back, like 'WAIT, I'm not dead!, I'm still here!'

    Yeah true though. And again thx that really helped me with my DUWS Campaign, because going in with a big army isn't funny but with a small CTRG Team and killing the enemies stealthly is much more fun :D

    Select units you believe to be dead and ask them to report in (5, 5), if they don't respond, mark them as dead (5, 8). You can also just mark all your units as dead (5, 8) and if they're not, they'll report back to you.

    If you spot a dead unit, you can aim at them and press T to mark them as dead.


    Marking with T that cool thanks :D


  10. Hello Community,


    I am currently playing some singleplayer missions and I am always the leader of a huge AI squad, therefore I started playing the VR Tutorial for commanding but there are still a few things I don't know how to manage.


    Here's a short list:


    - Mark a Squadmember as KIA [SITREP of the AI] (Most of the time 50% of my squad are dead but I can still see their markers in the bottom)

    - Let the AI report their grid (Since I turned map markers for units off, I sometimes cannot see where my team is standing around)


    I would be really glad if somebody could help me because when I search on google I just get advice for scripting these things and I don't know if these functions exist :(


    Have a nice day,

    Mister GTX aka Lt. Halliwell

  11. I don't know who decides the names of an Operation 

    But I think that a high officer chooses the name. I have heard, that the american military has got their own name list for operations. Somtimes the Operation is just named like the task that has to be done.

    In case of Red Wings I think the name just sounded cool :D


    For example in the German Military my friend told me they use animal names to mark targets. For example a Target called Elephant is a bigger target with more guards or more security measures while I pig is a smaller target with less risks to engage. But that depends heavily on the organization and the country (he is in a small scout squad with around 20 men in total)



  12. Ah within the boundaries that seems to be a good Idea!


    So I am back home and I wanted to test it and it still doesn't work :( I placed them inside the presence module boundaries and synced every module with another one and tested it for some minutes, at the "Civilian Presence Position" Module there is a marker with 0/3 but that's all I got :(


  13. Hello Community,


    With the new Mission from the Tac Ops DLC, they have also introduced some new cool Modules for the Eden Editor and I have played around a wile but I still couldn't figure out how the Civilian Presence Modules work :( I would be really thankful if anybody could explain to me how those Modules work!


    Warm Regards,

    Lt. Halliwell, to be continued ...

  14. Hello Community,


    Since there is a new Method to animate Objects called Key Frame Animation I took a closer look at the TAC OPS Mission and for example in the First mission of the "Stepping Stone - Campaign" NATO Forces have CAS (Close Air Support) inbound and the jets appear in a pretty cool way. They fly in and one of them turns to the right and the other one to the left at the exact same time and I wanted to recreate this kind of Animation.


    Here is my Problem: 

    I haven't found any good explanation how to use this Keyframe Animation. After experimenting several hours with this new Animation Process I started to google and found the following page: https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Arma_3_Key_Frame_Animation . It is well explained here and also a GIF how this should look like but I still don't have a clue how to use this kind of animation because it is just explained in Theory how everything works.


    I am thankful for any kind of link related to this Topic!


    Best regards, Adams "Fucking Greenbacks!" ;)
