  1. All Arma3 WW2 Mods Compilation List Last updated: January 29th, 2023 Current number of mods in this list: 453 Hello WW2 Fans! This compilation list was created from my frustration of steam Workshop's lack of function to better sort items in collections, this sorted list is my Arma3 WW2 Steams Workshop Collection seen here: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1508144524 that compiles all the WW2 items (not missions) into one place! The collection on the Steam Workshop page has all the items in one place however they are not separated or sorted based on type or subject, my list here does this for you! Video Overview Animations & Static Poses Backpacks, Helmets, Gameplay, Infantry Weapons, Objects, Planes, Ships, Statics, Structures, & Tanks Compatibility Mods Compositions Factions & Units Insignias & Loadouts Major Conversion Mods Map Markers Outfits & Uniforms Singleplayer / Multiplayer Campaigns Retexture packs, & Texture packs Scripts Sound, Radio, & Voice Sound Mods Terrains (Maps) Credits I hope that my list here will help the community recognize the creators for their work, and give credit where due, as new content adds more enjoyment and replayability to the game. ========== Note: This thread will be updated as new content is added to the Steam Workshop Collection.

    Operation Exodus (COOP-04)

    Cooperative Mission 4 Players You are part of Team Bravo, a detachment of the Delta Force mission in Chad. Your vehicle has run out of fuel and you are alone in the desert. Or so you thought... Even so, you have a mission to accomplish. I would like to get feedback about this mission, I plan to do more like this one, and using these same mods. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2907198306

    Whereas SITREPs are general development updates, the SPOTREPs will focus solely on big default branch updates to the game. Keep checking the Dev Hub for all details. ---------- Post added at 13:16 ---------- Previous post was at 13:14 ---------- Full changelog and SPOTREP
  5. Server Name: [MCOPS]HardcoreAI|PylonEdit|Rappel|RHS+MAS+Fems|Raids|Missions|Ranks|More! Direct Connect: arma.mandocabure.net Mod List: Steam Collection Link What sets our server apart: Combat focused, group oriented, hardcore, PVE server. Custom spawns, map locations, and raids. No Zombies, Custom Trader locations, unique economy. Active dev / admins. Mando Cabure's Altis server is a heavily combat focused PVE server. You may knock PVE, but this server will kill you harder than any PVP server will. The server has been custom coded to focus on PVE combat action, utilizing the Exile framework to keep you in combat longer. The following is a more detailed look at what we've done with our server: Exile Traders have been custom coded to provide a variety of NATO ammo & weapons. Trader inventory can be expanded by community cleared events, leading to the developer / admins adding items requested by participants as rewards. Once these are unlocked, they're permanent. Ranks, respect & rank based loadouts, aircraft pylon management, and completely custom spawn areas, help to create an immersive combat oriented environment. There are no safe zones, the AI is ruthless, and you are the invaders. You'll be outnumbered, outgunned, and have limited resources at your disposal. The server difficulty scales with the community QoL updates. Most servers give you (2) hours of grind, then you're endgame. Our server will consistently challenge you, and will always punish the situationally unaware. No sunny, infinite view distance Altis! Our server has unique weather, and an immersive atmosphere reminiscent of the OG hardcore Arma 2 DayZ servers, minus the zombies. Risk and Reward are real on our server. That hard earned vehicle you fought for is paper vs. launchers and gunships. You'll have to be strategic, adaptive, and realize your short comings, especially if you always lone wolf. Group oriented content. We have "raid" areas which are custom created and will never play out the same way. As such, these areas also allow for multiple angles of attack, as well as multiple breach points. Constant updates, active developer, and a global gaming community discord. If you're looking for a challenge, and some cool peeps to Arma with, come check us out!
  6. Hello ! I was wondering if someone know how a simulate the explosion of a smoke shell from a trigger or even a mortar. Conventional smokes are too small or even ineffective... I'm making several missions with Vanilla assets where this would be very useful, like a tank which just suddenly appears from the smoke, or even several huge smoke fired from mortars to allow some soldiers to advance covered etc. I have been looking for this command/script for some time but I haven't found any solution yet. Here is a command i tried but which doesn't work: bomb="8Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke_white" createVehicle (getPos this); So if any of you have any ideas, don’t hesitate. 🙂
  7. In this thread we'll post announcements about Release Candidates (RC) of future main branch updates. That includes the opening of the RC-Branch ahead of an update, possible change logs between RC updates and details on (multiplayer) stress tests. This thread itself will remain closed to allow for a clear overview of announcements, please feel free to discuss this branch here.
  8. Hello, I recently made my own Warlords scenario in Eden editor and everything worked fine, until I ran on a serious problem. After playing the scenario on a server I made and making some progress on the map, I saved the game and quit. The next day I loaded the saved game, still on the server I made, and then a problem occurred. I couldn't open the Warlords buying menu and the voting system stopped working. It seems like after I load the saved game, the Warlords Init just stops working / deactivates. I tried to change the soldier I was playing with but it didn't fix anything. Can anyone tell me how to fix that please? PS. I think it might be fixed by writing a code that tells the init to activate after the game is loaded, but I don't know how to do that (I cannot write scripts) and I'm not sure if it will work anyway.

    Mic not working in game

    Hi, I have had my mic working previously within the game but since my latest install I can't talk in game. The icon shows in the corner when I hold caps lock but my name does not show to my friends as transmitting. Voice is activated in game I have tried various channels Mic is set to default It is USB mic Steam is working with the mic Arma wont even let me auto adjust the mic so i assume it isnt even being detected.
  10. Dear Arma community, I'd like to share some of my knowledge regarding the ACE3 Sniper mechanism here. I know there's been lotta ACE3 Sniper Tutorial or Guide out there and you guys probably have been playing as ACE3 sniper for long time. But i just wanna highlight some important things that have always been forgotten by the players when they play as snipers which hinders the precision shots to be delivered. Yes, some players are still doing it wrong and their shots tend to fly too high or too low off the target :( #NoOffense Therefore, i'm trying to give you some easy instructional steps on how to play as a professional ACE3 Sniper and shoot like Real Military Sniper in Arma 3. If there's something needs to be added, changed, or fixed, just let me know. The steps written in Blue are the things the players most likely already know. And the steps written in Red are the things the players usually keep forgetting. Alright then, let's get it started now! To become a badass ACE3 Sniper, all you gotta do is follow these 12 Easy Steps: 1. Determine what kinda battle you’re going to engage & what type of shot you’re gonna take: a. MTE (Multiple Target Engagement) → this really requires fast shooting at many moving targets. “One shot one kill” shooting & Long Range Shot are not really a neccessity so Precision & Accuracy are usually less required. b. HVT (High Valuable Target) assasination → this really requires “one shot one kill” shooting! Mostly Medium & Long Range Shot are required. Precision & Accuracy are really required! c. HC (Hostage Crisis) → this really requires “one shot one kill” shooting! Short Range Shot are required (100 m below). Precision & Accuracy are really required! 2. After that, you conduct a Loadout Selection correspondig to the type of battle you’re gonna engage. While choosing a weapon, you must focus on its Precision Level (Shot Group/Shot Dispersion), Accuracy Level, Maximum Effective Range, Rate of Fire, & Damage (it must fit the type of shooting you’re gonna take). You have to do some thorough analysis on the rifles & bullet you're going to use! You always gotta measure rifle true performance by analyzing their shot-group (shot dispersion)! In Sniper World, Precision & Accuracy really matter a lot >_< Precision & Accuracy will greatly affect the Probability of Hit. You gotta understand what Precision & Accuracy really mean. The Precision & Accuracy of your loadout will totally affect your shots. There are 5 Types of Rifles (based on their Precision level) which you can choose: 1) Benchrest Rifle --> Shot Group / Shot Dispersion / Extreme Spread size is about 0 MoA - 0.23 MoA (0.00 inch - 0.23 inch at 100 yard) --> this rifle is extremely very accurate! :) it's good for HVT, HC, & MTE shot. 2) Precision Rifle --> Shot Group / Shot Dispersion / Extreme Spread size is about 0.25 MoA - 0.76 MoA (0.25 inch - 0.76 inch at 100 yard) --> this rifle is very accurate! :) it's good for HVT, HC, & MTE shot. 3) Sniper Rifle --> Shot Group / Shot Dispersion / Extreme Spread size is about 1.00 MoA - 1.53 MoA (1.00 inch - 1.53 inch at 100 yard) --> this rifle is accurate! :) it's good for HVT, HC, & MTE shot. 4) Designated Marksman Rifle --> Shot Group / Shot Dispersion / Extreme Spread size is about 1.78 MoA - 2.30 MoA (1.78 inch - 2.30 inch at 100 yard) --> this rifle is pretty accurate but not good for precision shooting! :( it's good only for MTE shot. 5) Assault/Battle Rifle --> Shot Group / Shot Dispersion / Extreme Spread size is bigger than 2.54 MoA (2.54 inch at 100 yard) --> this rifle is not accurate & not suitable for precision shooting at all! :( it's good only for MTE shot. Benchrest, Precision, & Sniper Rifles have small/tight shot dispersion which gives them much higher probability of hitting the target. Here's the example of Precision Rifle (with High Accuracy & Long Range Capability) in Arma 3: As you can see in those pictures above, M40A5 rifle (from Dagger mod) is insanely very accurate! At 100 m (its zero range), the 40-shot group size is very small. At 850 m (its max effective range), the 40-shot group size is still relatively small too. This is the type of rifle you wanna use to snipe in Arma 3! Here the things which are gonna affect your Loadout Precision & Accuracy (you gotta consider these while selecting a loadout): a. Cartridge & Caliber Selection - 5.56x45mm Nato (.224 cal) → for short range (100 – 400 m), has small damage (more like varmint hunting cartridge, it takes couple of shots to kill a man). It’s more like a battle-rifle cartridge but some soldiers use it as designated marksman cartridge. - 7.62x51mm Nato (.308 cal) → for medium range (500 – 800 m), has pretty huge damage (can kill a man in one shot). it fits the MTE, HVT, & HC shot. - 300 Win Mag (.308 cal) → for long range (900 – 1100 m), has huge damage. It fits MTE & HVT shot, but not the HC shot (coz it could hurt the hostage as well) - 338 Lapua Magnum (.338 cal), 50 BMG (.510 cal) → for extreme long range (1200 – 1600 m), has very huge damage. It fits HVT shot, but not the HC shot (coz it could hurt the hostage as well) and not the MTE shot (coz the cartridge is too heavy and the recoil is hard to control) - 375 CheyTac (.375 cal), 408 CheyTac (.408 cal) → for super extreme long range (beyond 1600 m), has very huge damage. It fits HVT shot, but not the HC shot (coz it could hurt the hostage as well) and not the MTE shot (coz the cartridge is too heavy and the recoil is hard to control) b. Action Selection - Bolt Action Rifle → it mostly offers more precision and accuracy but it definitely lacks of Speed & Rate of Fire. This obviously fits HVT & HC shot! - Semi-Auto Rifle → it definitely offers more Speed & Rate of Fire but it usually lacks of precision & accuracy. This obviously fits MTE shot! c. Barrel Selection, Stock Selection, Trigger Selection → choose whatever gives you more precision & accuracy (these actually don’t matter in Arma 3 coz they come within the rifle so you can’t really costumize them, but they really matter in real life!) d. Scope Selection → pick High-Power scope for HVT & HC shot, pick Low-Power scope for MTE shot! Always use scope with Miliradian-based reticle (dont use duplex reticle coz it’s useless)! Scope with Miliradian Ballistics reticle (like Horus reticle) is even better coz you can use it to Mildot Holdover all the time very easily (no need to dial the adjutment at all). RHS Mk4 M5 scope (from RHS mod) has Horus H58 reticle which allows you to do Mildot Holdover fast without ever needing to dial at all. And Make sure the scope is perfectly zeroed at 100 m! e. Attachment Selection → Bipod & Muzzle brake is a must for Precision & Accuracy! Bipod will steady your aim & Muzzle Brake will reduce the recoil. Suppressor is optional (use it when you need to stay stealthy). f. Ammo selection → choose some Match-grade ammo (which has high Ballistics Coefficient, optimal Muzzle Velocity, & awesome Ballistics performance)! Make sure you really got the right ammo magazine loaded in the rifle receiver! Coz sometimes players mistakenly load their rifles with the wrong/different ammo (still thinking it’s the right ammo), shoot it, & then the shot trajectory becomes completely different lol XD 3. Always equip yourself with AtragMX (a Ballistics Calculator), Kestrel 4500 (a pocket weather tracker), & Laser Range Finder → These 3 items are very important to calculate the firing solution! Without them, you guys will never be able to shoot long range accurately. So always carry these 3 items in your vest or in your backpack!!! 4. Zero your Rifle at 100 m and confirm the true 100 m Zero (make sure no offset at all!) → Spawn a target at 100 m and take couple of shots at it. You’ll see your shots are low or high. Yup ACE3 100 m zero is always 0.3 Mil – 0.5 Mil low or high (depends on your current loadout) so you gotta make an adjustment for your 100 m zero by dialing 0.3 Mil – 0.5 Mil up or down and then set it as a new 100 m zero. Do this through ACE Self-Intercation menu (Click & Hold the “Left CTRL + Windows” key, drag your mouse to the “Equipment”, then to the “Set Zero Adjustment”). You gotta make sure your 100 m zero is really spot on (not high or low at all)! After doing that, i guarantee your 100 m zero will become really spot on! Lotta ACE3 players don’t do this which always causes their shots to become low or high >_< Why you gotta zero your rifle at 100 m (not at other distance)? coz 100 m zero is easy to do & very stable! 5. Measure the True Muzzle Velocity using the “Chronograph” or calculate it yourself → in Arma 3 you can use a "Chronograph" by spawning a Steel Target right in front you (at 0 m), shoot it directly and it’ll tell your remaining velocity! You always gotta measure the True Muzzle Velocity coz your Muzzle Velocity is always changing corresponding to Powder Burn Rate, Temperature shift, and the Barrel Length. Plugging the wrong Muzzle Velocity into the AtragMX will always give you wrong firing solution & cause your shots to be low or high off the target >_< ----------------> Shooting my rifle directly in front of a Steel Target will inform me about its Remaining Velocity (which is the true Muzzle Velocity) ^_^ this "Chronograph" is actually an exclusive feature in "360 Degree Training Course" mod created by Ruthberg (the Author of ACE3 Advanced Ballistics). If you really can’t measure the true Muzzle Velocity with that “Chronograph”, then you gotta find it by asking the Weapon Mod Author or using the Config Viewer in Eden Editor! Config Viewer will help you find the Muzzle Velocity. But the Muzzle Velocity you see in the Config Viewer is actually the basic MV (it only applies at 21°C). Don't forget that MV is constantly changing corresponding to Air Temperature!!! So at other temperatures higher than 21°C, the MV will shift higher than the basic MV (+1.5 mps per 1°C shift). At other temperatures lower than 21°C, the MV will shift lower than the basic MV (-1.5 mps per 1°C shift). So you still gotta calculate the True Muzzle Velocity yourself with this table: Muzzle Velocity Shift -26.55 mps -25.47 mps -22.9 mps -20.12 mps -16.98 mps -12.8 mps -7.64 mps -1.53 mps + 6.0 mps +15.2 mps +26.2 mps Powder & Air Temperature -15 °C -10°C -5°C 0°C 5°C 10° C 15 °C 20 °C 25 °C 30 °C 35 °C Note: The basic air temperature for the basic MV of all Arma 3 weapon is always 21 °C! So when the air temp is cooler or hotter than 21 °C, your MV will always shifts (as described in the table above). The average MV change (due to the temperature) in ACE3 is +/- 1.5 mps per 1°C shift. And the average MV change (due to the Added Barrel Length) is +/- 10 mps per 1 inch added barrel length. For example: You’re shooting an M24 SWS rifle (24” barrel length) loaded with M118LR ammo. The mod author of that weapon or the Eden Config Viewer said the basic MV is 790 mps (it only applies at 21 °C). While your current air temp is 30 °C. It means your current MV will certainly be = 790 mps + 15.2 mps = 805.2 mps. And if you load the same M118LR ammo into the M40A5 rile (25” barrel length), your MV will be approximately = 805.2 mps + 10 mps = 815.2 mps 6. Plug all your Rifle & Ammo Data into Ballistics Calculator (AtragMX or whatever you use) → you gotta get all these ballistics data of your Loadout from the mod author of the weapon or you can just google it! To bring up the AtragMX, you click “Pause/Break” key. Then you select the “GunList” at the bottom left corner of your AtragMX screen. Then you select “Add New Gun”. Then Add a “New Gun Name”. Then you go to the “Gun” tab in the AtragMX. Then you select M (Metric unit) at the top right corner. And then you plug-in all these things: a. Muzzle Velocity → you plug the True MV that you just measure through the “Chronograph” before! Remember MV is always constantly changing depending on the Air Temperature & Barrel Length!!! b. Ballistics Coefficient → ask the mod author or just use the config file viewer in the EDEN Editor! (AtragMX only works with G1 BC! If you got G7 BC, you gotta convert it first to G1 BC) c. Bullet Caliber/Diameter → ask the mod author or just use the config file viewer in the EDEN Editor! d. Bullet Length & Twist Rate → ask the mod author or just use the config file viewer in the EDEN Editor! e. Bullet Mass → ask the mod author or just use the config file viewer in the EDEN Editor! f. Scope Height → ACE3 scope height is always 3.81 cm / 1.5 inch g. Zero Range → always plug 100 m! ------------> 7. Measure the Atmospheric Condition using the Kestrel 4500 and plug the data into Ballistics Calculator (AtragMX or whatever you use) → To open Kestrel 4500 for the first time, click “Scroll Lock”, then press the down arrow to switch it to the “Atmosphere” page. It’ll show you these 3 things which you gotta plug into the AtragMX: a. Air Pressure → in hPa b. Air Temperature → in °C c. Humidity → in % Remember this atmospheric condition is always changing all the time so you better always monitor it with the Kestrel 4500! To keep the Kestrel 4500 opened all the time, click “Left Shift + Scroll Lock”! It’ll show up at the left bottom of your screen permanently. Yup, you can easily keep track of the Atmospheric Condition by letting the Kestrel stay open like that. Click the Atmosphere tab in the AtragMX, then select “TBH”, and then enter those 3 things into the AtragMX! ----------------> ----------------> 8. Plug all the Target Data into Ballistics Calculator (AtragMX or whatever you use)! Plug them all in the “Target” tab in AtragMX: a. Range → find it with Laser Range Finder (click “B” key and aim it at the target) b. Angle of Firing → for uphill and downhill shooting, measure it with the Protractor (click “Left CTRL + Left Shift + K” key) c. Target Speed & Direction → for moving target d. Latitude & Azimuth → For calculating the Coriolis Effect. Find the Azimuth with the compass (click “K”). The latitude for all common Arma 3 maps can be found in here e. Wind Speed & Direction → there are 2 ways to measure the Wind: - Using the Wind Arrow click “Left Shift + K” key to bring up the Wind Arrow. The Wind Arrow will show up at the upper left corner of your screen. It’ll show you where the wind actually blows. If the Wind Arrow is pointing to your right, it means the Wind is blowing to the right and your bullet trajectory will drift to the right. If the Wind Arrow is pointing to your left, it means the Wind is blowing to the left and your bullet trajectory will drift to the right. If the arrow turns out to be a White Circle, then it means there’s no wind at all. The Wind Arrow also shows you some different colors indicating different Wind Speeds (white = 1 mph ; very light green = 3 mph; light green = 5 mph ; green = 10 mph ; darker green = 20 mph ; yellow = 25 mph) based on Beaufort scale. Don't forget to convert the number from mph to m/s coz AtragMX can only use m/s! For Example: -----------> 3 mph - 8 mph Wind coming from 10 o'clock to 4 o'clock (Blowing from left to right) - Using the Kestrel 4500 Click “Scroll Lock” to bring up the Kestrel. Then click its down arrow button to switch from the “Atmosphere” page to the “Wind Speed” page. It’ll show you the wind speed (but that’s not the true wind speed you’re currently dealing with yet!). To get the real wind speed, you gotta have your Kestrel 4500 facing the wind directly! Click “Left Shift + Scroll Lock” to let the Kestrel stay open (it’ll show up permanently at bottom left corner), then you face the direction where the wind comes from. By doing that, the Kestrel 4500 will show the real wind speed. Here’s exactly how you do it . After getting the Wind Speed & Direction, you plug the data in the AtragMX to calculate its Windage value. Remember! Windage is very tricky, my friend! There are 2 types of Wind you gotta plug in AtragMX. 1. "Uprange Wind" → Wind at shooter's position (Wind that blows only around the shooter) 2. "Downrange Wind" → Wind all the way to target's position (Wind that blows between the shooter & the target) The Wind data that you got from Kestrel 4500 is actually an "Uprange Wind" coz that wind most likely blows only near you. You can only measure "Downrange Wind" with Mirage Reading (which is really hard to do in Arma 3). It means you can't really trust the Kestrel 4500 to measure the actual Wind Speed coz the Kestrel 4500 only measure the Uprange Wind :( Kestrel 4500 can't measure the Downrange Wind. So You also gotta pay attention to the Wind Arrow & the Mirage to measure the actual Downrange Wind. It's really hard to read them but if you practice a lot, you'll get the hang of it ;) Sometimes Uprange Wind could be equally the same as the Downrange Wind, but only when the map contour is perfectly flat (not mountainous at all)! If you're shooting in a mountainous area, the Uprange Wind & the Downrange Wind will always be different so be careful. Here's some trick to estimate Downrange Wind: After finding the Uprange & Downrange Wind, you gotta plug them both into the AtragMX! You may notice that in the “Target” tab in AtragMX, there are two gaps or squares to fill in Wind Speed. You better plug your Uprange Wind data (from Kestrel) into the gap/square number 1 (the left one) in the "Target" tab in AtragMX. And you plug the Downrange Wind data into the gap/square number 2 (the right one) in the "Target" tab in AtragMX Gap/Square number 1(the left one) is for "Uprange Wind" and Gap/Square number 2 (the right one) is for "Downrange Wind". After getting all the Target Data, you gotta plug them all into the Target tab! Then the AtragMX will give you the final Firing Solution. Here's the Official Manual of Horus AtragMX. Here's the AtragMX tutorial by ACE3 team. ----------> ----------> Or you can actually do the Todd Hodnett “Quick Windage Formula” instead of plugging the wind data in the AtragMX (yup it works! I always do this all the time coz it's much faster than using the AtragMX!) ^_^ 9. Plug the Firing Solution onto your Scope! → To compensate for Bullet Drop, Spin Drift, & Wind Drift, there are 2 things you can do : a. Dial the Scope Adjustment → click the "Up Arrow (↑)" and "Down Arrow (↓)" key for Bullet Drop. click the "Left Arrow (←)" and "Right Arrow (→)" key for Wind Drift and Spin Drift. But I strongly suggest you to NEVER dial for the Wind Drift coz wind is constantly changing all the time, so always use Mildot Holdover for the Wind Drift! I highly recommend you to use Todd Hodnett Quick Windage formula to calculate the Wind Drift fast without even using any ballistics calculator ;) b. you can do the “Mildot Holdover” → use the mildot to hold over the target for Bullet Drop & Wind Drift compensation without dialing the scope adjustment at all. Remember that AtragMX always spits out the Firing Solution in Miliradian! ACE3 scope adjustment is always in Miliradian! Arma 3 scope reticles are mostly Miliradian based reticles (Mildot)! So what is Miliradian? Miliradian is actualy a sniper's angular measurement. 1 Miliradian = 0.0572958° 1 Miliradian = 10 cm at 100 m 1 Miliradian = 1 m at 1 km 10. Always go Prone (click “Z’ key) to stabilize your aim and always Deploy a Bipod (click “C” key) to rest your rifle on it to reduce the scope sway significantly. 11. Make sure the Scope Sway has been reduced so the reticle & the rifle aren’t moving at all when you take the shot. If it still moves a bit, you can hold a breath by holding the right mouse button before taking the shot. 12. Take the shot (click Left Mouse Button really gently) and see the Point of Impact. If it’s still off the Point of Aim, then you gotta re-adjust your weapon system and do follow-up shot fast before the target runs away. Here’s my Arma 3 ACE3 Sniper Tutorial video in which i’m demonstrating all these easy 12 steps in less than 8 minutes: ARMA 3 ACE3 SNIPER TUTORIAL (VERY QUICK, SIMPLE, & EASY 12 STEPS) PLEASE TURN ON THE SUBTITLE!

  11. Sometimes it's useful to discuss updates to the Steam Development branch in one centralized place. Let's use this thread for that. The changelog thread can stay clean and do its thing. It mainly serves for our team to rapidly see if a daily update is very broken or very epic :ph34r: Actual issue reporting should still happen via the Feedback Tracker of course. Thank you!
  12. I've been trying to get TFAR working for me and my mates to play arma with. I'm currently testing it and it's not working. We're connected, we get switched to the correct channels, we both have the correct addons but we just can't hear each other in game.
  13. Couple years ago I started getting the BattlEye initialization failed error when joining a network server (I can join official servers, even tho they are also protected by battleye). Now, I tried multiple solutions, like reinstalling battleye, integrity of game files, reinstalling arma3, ... Basically everything of this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZLZl3ZrZZ0&ab_channel=ComputerSluggishTutorials Now I started looking into the RPT files and found this: 15:26:24 BE connection with remote machine could not be established. Error=3 15:26:24 Warning Message: BattlEye initialization failed Any idea how to fix this? I'm using windows 10.

    arma3 editor

    Greetings Arma players! I hope you are doing well. Recently I bought Arma3 and spent quite an amount of time in this game, needless to say, I have enjoyed it so far. Then I decided to try something new - create my own mission (Like a single operation nothing big). Now I am learning what this magnificent thing called "Eden editor" is, many things are understandable but here comes the more complicated part - scripting. The idea of what I have in mind is next: there is a task to clear the city out of enemy units after it's completed the marker on the map should change to another type and the player will receive a task to defend a position and after that comes an enemy attack of a few prepared npc's. I know it's not the best idea for a newbie to start with something complicated, but I'm really fired up for this. So I was wondering if you, honored arma veterans, could give me some advice or tips on where to start or which direction I should take. Thank you in advance!

    In this thread we'll post updates in the form of quick SITREPs about ongoing work during on Arma 3. These will include things like high-profile fixes, content additions, focus areas, announcements, and general development chatter. Keep an eye on the Dev Hub for all the details. ---------- Post added at 16:09 ---------- Previous post was at 16:06 ---------- Full SITREP

    SECREPs will signal the update of main branch for anti-cheat / security only. Typically this means only BattlEye files were changed, and the game is not changed itself. ---------- Post added at 15:26 ---------- Previous post was at 15:23 ----------

  18. ToH ReCharacters Faces of Bohemian Interactive for Arma 3 ported to Arma Reforger. Available in Workshop https://reforger.armaplatform.com/workshop/596330D9AF34AF38-ToHReCharacters Greetings to all, I am once again starting a project to adapt the old faces of our old friends to this evolution of Enfusion. Initially I will start with textures only and later I hope to add new heads. So forgive me if at first I will only be able to use the 12 head shapes that exist in Reforger. The initial work was to create a template for myself to be able to do the first step of basically converting the face distribution from A3 to AR. This took me about 10 days with a lot of testing, but once it was done it was a lot faster to process all the faces. Now it's been a while since I can't advance this due to lack of time, but the next step will be to create some templates based on the AR faces to give the most definition to the processed A3 faces. Here are some very preliminary examples of the processed and enhanced quality heads (Miller, Dwarden, Solomon Maru, Krupin, Yakhin😞 Arma Public License Share Alike (APL-SA)
  19. Hi all! I have this simple script of fuel consumption working in EDEN editor pretty well: _veh = vehicle player; _rate = 0.003 ; _loadMultiplier = 0.003 ; _tooSlowRate = 0.004 ; _tooFastRate = 0.008 ; _speedMult = 0; while {true} do { if ((alive _veh) and (_veh != player) and (isengineon _veh) and ((fuel _veh) > 0)) then { _crew = count( crew _veh); _load = _crew * _loadMultiplier; _speed = speed _veh; if(_speed < 30 ) then { _speedMult = _tooSlowRate; }; if(_speed > 90 ) then { _speedMult = _tooFastRate; }; _realLoad = _rate + _load + _speedMult; _veh setFuel ( (fuel _veh) - _realLoad); }; sleep 5; }; But it's not work on dedi server(( Can anyone help with this? P.S. Server mod: AltisLife 4.4r4, if it mean something... Tryed both - server and client sides...
  20. Hey all, Some of you might have heard or seen the project that me and my team - Project Orion - have been working on. Just came by to showcase it and highlight a small issue that we and many other developers, who create these high-fidelity mods for ARMA. You see - one of the issues we're facing is the limit of the MFD Values that we can display on the screens, which is quite relevant when your vehicle heavily relies on the information and inputs in the cockpit. The current limit is 50 - that is 50 "text" values and 50 numeric values that we can pass from our scripts to the aircraft itself. And that aint much. If you want to show 5 waypoints on the tactical map in your MFD, you need to waste at least 10 of the MFD values (x and y coordinates, times 5). Every further custom information that I might want to pass to be displayed, takes another one of these slots. And the list piles up, our budget of 50 gets depleted very very fast. I don't really want to get into details of it, but I hope you can see that this is not a very big budget for our needs. And that's something that affects me and my team, the Hatchet Team (the guys who made the interactible UH-60), and the Apache Project. We raised a ticket in Bohemia feedback, it's been open for a year. Perhaps we could encourage Bohemia Interactive to increase the limit as a community, when this ticket gets more attention?⚓ T159957 Increase MFD Value/Text limits (bistudio.com) Anyways, for the fun part, here's some screenshots from the WIP -more frequently updated on Project Orion's discord: https://discord.gg/wCUqFxs
  21. TRD is an ArmA 3 group that was created in September of 2021. It was mostly made under friends and members of the RKR (Regiment in Mount & Blade: Napoleonic Wars) The creation of the early TRD Community was only possible thanks to the Czech ArmA 3 group =TF21=, which was in part was the parent group of TRD (then named RKR-TF21). Now we're an independent group with our own game server and TS3 server. We're an International bunch with most of us being located in Europe, but we have members from the US and even Asia. Our events are currently running on Wednesday and Saturday at 19:00/7PM CET. When compared to other Regiments/Clans of ArmA, we're mostly laid back and our first priority overall is to have fun but still keep a friendly environment for everyone. We also change eras and factions for every event (except if it's a campaign) to keep things fresh. If you are interested in joining us, then visit our discord and we'll get you sorted out asap! Hoping to see some gamers join us. 🙂 Our Discord: https://discord.gg/QswRspcBUU
  22. Hello All, So I am trying to make a CIA style mission based around one of the redone buildings on Cam Lao Nam (Multiplayer, self or server hosted). The players will start off as unarmed Blufor operatives in civis and take a ride on Air America. I know I need to use the setCaptive command but I am having issues with the event handler to remove this status. I am using eden editor and not putting extra script files in, just doing it all via the character init boxes. I found some of the below code on an older post but cant get it to work right. In this case SL1 is the squad leader and I'm trying this all just on one before copying it over. The goal is that when the player equips a weapon from the virtual arsenal box I have hidden in a van near the objective they lose the setCaptive state. Any help debugging whats below would be appreciated. *INIT BOX (Of the player)* removeAllWeapons SL1; //remove the weapons and items from default characters inventory removeAllItems SL1; removeAllAssignedItems SL1; SL1 setCaptive true; //set initial captive state this addEventHandler ["Take", { _unit = _this select 0; //at one point it would error out if I had this set at 0 but it seems to be accepting it now. *EDIT/Updated* _item = _this select 2; if ((_item isKindOf ["Rifle", configFile >> "CfgWeapons"]) || (_item isKindOf ["Pistol", configFile >> "CfgWeapons"]) || (_item isKindOf ["Launcher", configFile >> "CfgWeapons"])) then { _unit setCaptive false; //this is what was in the example [_unit, false] remoteExec["setCaptive"]; //tried adding server remote call and it didnt change anything. hint "You picked up a weapon enemies will now be hostile!"; }; }]; myfancygroup = group this; //This is for a helicopter to know the whole spawned group is onboard before taking off

  24. Hi, I am new to using mods and I got the ZEN mod from github, but I don't know how to install it, please help
  25. This is an issue for issue reiteration of <https://feedback.bistudio.com/T63493> this user's issue, but this is dated 2013-2014. I am wondering if there have been any updates to fixing this issue. Issue: Completely stable connection to any dedicated multiplayer session is hard severed after 20~40 minutes. The pop up "User ME is losing connection." pops on my screen followed by the red chain links & "No Message received for X seconds" timer. The timer reaches 90 & the server kicks me. Teamspeak, In game Steam browser, & outside of game internet browsing remains stable through the entire process. No other multiplayer game is experiencing this issue. I did not keep track of it well, but I believe the issue began around the last base game update. This coincides with the forum post linked above. There seems to be no solution besides "wait for the next game update to hopefully un-screw it." What I have tried: Disable firewall. Disable DDoS protections. Verify game files. Verifying mods. Different game servers. UPnP IPv6 <3
