  1. All Arma3 WW2 Mods Compilation List Last update: January 16th, 2021 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, Tanks, Vehicles Compatibility Mods Factions & Units Insignias & Loadouts Major Conversion Mods Map Markers Outfits & Uniforms Singleplayer/Multiplayer Campaign Mission Mods Retexture packs, & Texture packs Scripts Sound, Radio, & Voice Sound Mods Terrains (Maps) Credits I hope that from my list here that the community would 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 Arma3 Steam Workshop WW2 Collections.
  2. Carpe Noctem Tactical Operations Carpe Noctem Tactical Operations was founded in 2014 as an Arma 3 community that aims to balance a realistic combat environment with fun gameplay. We play missions on Tuesday and Friday using a custom modset designed to improve your Arma experience. The average age of our members is 25 years old, mostly from Europe and we want to attract mature and motivated people to the community. Both Arma veterans and newcomers to the series are welcome to join CNTO - previous Arma experience is appreciated but not required. Carpe Noctem is not a community that calls each other "sir" or features other role-playing aspects generally associated with milsim units. We use a rank structure, but it serves administrative purposes only, in daily interactions we are completely equal to one another. Our play style is semi-serious and in many respects very similar to ShackTac. We employ real tactics, techniques and procedures adapted for Arma 3. Our goal is to have serious fun, not a tedious boot camp simulation. We are a friendly, relaxed and organized community that enjoys playing a variety of games together and have a good laugh. We understand that players have other responsibilities and our core principle is that real-life always has priority. Our minimum attendance ratio is one event per two months. Requirements: Minimum age: 21+ (rare exceptions are possible for applicants between 18-20) Friendly, respectful, good-natured and mature. Timezone range: between UTC-2 and UTC+3 Intermediate English - both spoken and written We offer: Active, mature and friendly environment Flexible attendance policy Membership in other communities is allowed Coop or PvP sessions every Tuesday and Friday, 20:00 UTC+1 Non-mandatory trainings Mod collection with dedicated repository Dedicated servers hosted in EU, exclusive to our members On-demand organization of various other game sessions Most prominent mods used: Inhouse developed CNTO Mods Advanced Combat Environment 3 (ACE3) Advanced Combat Radio Environment 2 (ACRE2) CUP Terrains RHS Escalation Where you can find us: Website: https://www.carpenoctem.co/ Teamspeak: ts3server://ts.carpenoctem.co Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/4EkAKg4 Twitter: https://twitter.com/CarpeNoctemArma
  3. virtuelle Panzerbrigade 21 (virtual tank brigade 21) Our unit was founded in September 2013. Since then we try to combine milsim and fun in our unit. Therefore we usually meet on Saturday at 19:00 CET (7:00 PM). Our unit is characterized by experience and knowledge, which comes from active and former soldiers. We try to use the knowledge we have gained as much as we can in Arma and work out meaningful trainings. However, we are aware that Arma is still a game and all members want to have fun. The real unit that we depict in Arma has different battalions that we try to depict ourselves. This gives us a wide range of possibilities. Whether as infantry, mechanized or with tanks, we offer everything and even have fun with it. We are interested in friendships with international communities.

  4. 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!

    Can my pc run Arma 3?

    Hello! I really want to buy Arma 3, but don't have a really good pc and I am wondering if my pc is able to run it. I would like to play multiplayer with a few mods. Specs: AMD Radeon(TM) RX460 Pixel Shader: 5.1 Vertex Shader: 5.1 Dedicated Video RAM: 2G CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6402P CPU @ 2.80GHz Ram: 8GB OS: Windows 10 Space: 400GB+ Sound Card: AMD High Definition Audio Device Please, Let me know if It is worth buying Arma 3 with these specs, and if so how I should improve my performance.
  6. Update 14-04-2020: today we have released the 1.98 update for Arma 3, which brings the Old Man scenario to the vanilla platform (loaded by default). We will soon be emptying the Steam Workshop item and leaving it as deprecated just for historical context. You are recommended to unsubscribe from the item already, or at least to not load it into the game. We also recommend starting a fresh play session, instead of continuing from any old save. There have been many improvements and fixes, often thanks to your feedback. Kudos to all of you for sharing your thoughts with us. We will of course still be reading this thread for potential improvements in the future 👴 Original post: Hi community! As you may have seen from our announcement, we have today published the Bohemia Incubator beta version of Arma 3 Apex: Old Man to Steam Workshop. We've taken a bit of a different approach due to the nature of this experimental singleplayer open-world scenario. Anyone on Arma 3's main branch can subscribe to the item for free, however you will need to own Arma 3 Apex, since the scenario takes places on Tanoa. During the coming weeks we will be eagerly reading your feedback and evaluating whether we can add Old Man to the vanilla platform in 2020. The data is distributed under the APL-SA license, so that community developers can explore and possibly extend it for their own creations. This also means we will not be using encrypted EBO files now or later. Note that some of the extra platform additions, such as the static M2 .50 MG, will quite likely be added in Arma 3 update 1.98 regardless. Check out the full announcement for all the details! How to play the scenario? Subscribe to the Workshop item. Wait for your Steam client to download and install the data. Start the Arma 3 official Launcher (using main branch). Visit the MODS tab. Load Arma 3 Apex: Old Man (Beta). Press PLAY to launch the game. In the game's main menu, go to SINGLEPLAYER > SCENARIOS. Select Old Man and press PLAY. Known issues? This beta version is still a work-in-progress, so please consider whether you want to jump in now or rather wait for a later version. When we inevitably update the scenario with fixes, older (mid-scenario) saves may no longer load. Unfortunately there is no way around this. Consider making a local back-up copy of the 'mod' files in order to finish a play-through (more details here) ⚠️ While we've set up the data for eventual later integration into the platform, note that some details may have to change. We don't recommend to base your own content or mods on specific class names or file paths yet for example. Most of Old Man is not yet localized, although we do have translations in progress. Various English texts may still see iterations. Where to share feedback? Here! Please use the spoiler widget when discussing plot points. You can post concrete issues with reproduction methods to Feedback Tracker. And the Workshop item itself also has several pinned discussions for various types of feedback. Thanks a lot for your input. Have fun!
  7. FFtA3 : From Flashpoint to Arma 3 Project description : FFtA3 is a Multiplayer project. My objective is to recreate all the best OFP maps (starting by CTF: Capture the Flag and all the way to DM and TDM). As an old school player, playing Flashpoint since 2001 I have recently installed Arma 3. Only finding very little CTF and DM GamePlay, I have started gathering the wonderful maps we all played and on witch we spent soooo much time and started transferring them in the Arma 3 world. Scripts and Templates : In collaboration with the "88th Walking Death" squad and some other coders, I have built up stable CTF, DM and TDM templates. It's is now operational since 1.68 Update. Special thanks to [88] LORD without who this couldn't be possible. Special Thanks : Asaayu FrankForsyth Where to play : www.esportsmasters.org Map already recreated : - [CTF] The End - [CTF] Lost And Lonley - [CTF] Never Scared - [CTF]=S.O.F=Born To Kill - [CTF] Corridor - [DM] Tequila Sundown - [TDM] SNIPER SHOWDOW - [TDM] Urban Sniper - [DM] MAZED - [CTF] S-Curve - [CTF] Mini Hexenkessel - [CTF] Adagio (QA Testing) - [DM] Andersen Gunship (WIP) Maps to come : - [CTF] Scotch Valley - [CTF] PRiSONyARD (by SOD clan) - [CTF] Dead Mans Alley (by SOD clan) - [CTF] Head Fuck (by SOD clan) - [CTF] ToySoldiers - [CTF] Crazy ctf - [CTF] Cashville - [CTF] Dead Zone - [CTF] Yukon - [CTF] X-RAY - [CTF] URBAN ALLEY - [CTF] Little Everon - [CTF] LightHouseKeeper - [CTF] Up In Smoke - [CTF] PARADISE - [TDM] Double Tower Sniper - [TDM] SniperZ - [CTF] Labyrinthe ... Please feel free to send me some recommendations by Mail and if you have the maps you are asking for somewhere, send them too. What is CTF ? CTF stands for Capture The Flag. It is a "Close Quarters Combat (CQC)" game-mod played by a limited amount of players (2 to 24 players) in a restricted area (500m MAX). CTF players have to capture the enemy flag and bring it back to their own Flag. Fatigue is disabled and Snipers/long range riffles are not available (for CQC version). The team that scores the most times in a given time is the winner. CTF can be adapted to bigger maps and applied to a terrain. Listen to the ArmaNET podcast FFtA3 CTF Map Features : - Weapon Menu - Friendly tags (Optional) - Flag tags (Optional) - Self Heal system FFtA3 DM Map Features : - Lobby Weapon type selection - Full Randomised weapons & scopes - Friendly tags (For TDM Only) - Self Heal system NO MODS ARE NEEDED FOR THE SYSTEM TO WORK.

  8. I am attempting to animate a deck crew man with the "Acts_JetsMarshallingStraight_loop" animation. I am using the BIS_fnc_ambientAnim function. I place the following in the unit init field [deckhand, "Acts_JetsMarshallingStraight_loop","ASIS"] call BIS_fnc_ambientAnim; No issues with getting him to do the animations at mission start. However I would like to have the unit conduct the animation only when a helicopter is inbound and the distance from deck crew to helo1 is <50 meters. I also would want the deck crew to terminate the animation once the helo has landed (isTouchingGround). Here is what I currently have placed in a trigger "On Activation" field: [deckhand, "Acts_JetsMarshallingStraight_loop","ASIS"] call BIS_fnc_ambientAnim; waituntil {{isTouchingGround helo1}; this call BIS_fnc_ambientAnim__terminate}; The same trigger's "Condition" field has this: deckhand distance helo1 < 50; Unfortunately I am receiving an error when the trigger is activated and the deckhand does nothing. I am quite sure that I have designed the script wrong, but I can not seem to find my error. Thank You

    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 ----------
  10. ─────── Structure ─────── Motivation Introduction Features Benchmarks Installation Usage Final words Changelog Requirements Download Screenshots ─────── Motivation ─────── Hello there, first I want to talk about why I made this - well there is a pretty simple reason. As a developer and as server owner you always need logs. You need logs to write debug messages, you need logs to make statistics for your squad, you need logs to be able to have a look on who did what when. Logs are awesome, and without them it would take much longer to find an error or to find out who shot who first, or how many players were on your server today. Let us have a look on the game log itself, the rpt log. It provides errors, if you have got some, and gives some debug information about startup and shutdown of the game. However since there are some errors in the game that write a nice little message every 1-2 seconds into the log-file, the rpt gets larger and larger ... and now find the one line you need. Imagine, you are a server owner, and you want to keep track on who connected when on your squad server for you and some friends. Why ? Well you like it to stalk other people, or wanted to play NSA simulator 2016. You could log who connected, with which player-ID and so on ... but where do these logs go? Well I always had to log into the rpt file. Often I search for one line which is between 1000 of other lines. That does not only take time, but it might also happen, that you do not find the line, even if you go through everything 10 times. That is where I had the idea, well ... why not create an extension where you decide where logs are placed, in which format, how they are named, if they should have got a time stamp, if this time stamp should be in 12 or 24 hour format etc. I wanted a simple extension where you setup a config, and then just call a function with content, and maybe optional a name which is used for separation. Simple but fast, with options, so that you can get logs from ArmA just the way you want it. I already made a extension called Arma3Log a while ago but I was new into extension writing, and you could have seen that ... it was slow and not very useful... but I wanted to do better and here we are. ─────── Introduction ─────── A3log is a lightweight logging extension for ArmA III, which allows it's users to write customized log-files with a very high performance. It is very easy to use, and does not require and advanced skills for the setup, or the usage. The log-files are adjustable in nearly every way, you could come up with in case of writing log-files. Even when dealing with a high amount of data, the server will not be slowed down and there is no data loss. As it is still in development, there will be improvements to the speed and the amount of features / settings. ─────── Features ─────── Timestamp inside the logfile Timestamp (Date) within the filename Extend the filename with the minute of creation Changeable timestamp format 12/24H clock Custom directory to place the logs (Full-/Relative path) Choose the name of the file Choose the file-extension Define a unlimited amount of custom log categories Separate each log category as one folder Define path and name of the configuration ini ─────── Benchmarks ─────── 1000 lines with 100 characters each: 0.052 seconds - diag_log 0.0159998 seconds - A3log (with all features enabled at v1.1) Extreme example: 100.000 lines with 100 charaters each: 55,895 seconds - diag_log 15,2 seconds - A3log (with all features enabled at v1.1) Note: The test conditions for the benchmarks were reset for every run. The value in seconds is the middle value of 10 test runs. The time indicates how long it took for ArmA to process the input and output of the extension, so how long the server was under heavy load to send the content to the extension. ─────── Installation ─────── Download the latest version (See download section for that) Extract the @A3Log folder and place it in your server directory Go into the @A3Log folder and make sure the the A3Log.dll is not blocked Edit the A3Log.ini file to fit your personal need -> Save the file Edit your startup file and add @A3Log to your -serverMod / -mod parameter Optional: To specify from where the config should be loaded you can define startup a paramter for the arma3server executable with "-A3Log=Configurations/Mylogs.ini" (Only paths in your arma3server directory are allowed so in this case you would have a folder called Configurations inside of your serversetup and in that you have the config file called Mylogs.ini) - This feature is WIP Remove the A3Log_examples.pbo inside @A3Log/addons, once it worked for you and you got example log files Done ─────── Usage ─────── The A3Log.pbo provides you with the A3Log function, which you can call from anywhere. In addiotion to that there is a serverside PublicVariableEventHandler (sendlogfile) to catch incoming log entries, which may be send via publicVariableServer So an example for serverside use would be: ["I am Superman!"] call A3Log; This one has no category defined, so it goes into the catch all log (See A3Log.ini for this) --- ["I am Batman!","ExampleLog"] call A3Log; This one goes into the ExampleLog.log, or what ever you called it. An example for sending a log from a client / headless client would be: sendlogfile = ["I am Batman!","ExampleLog"]; publicVariableServer "sendlogfile"; You might need to whitelist this in the publicvariable.txt from Battleye with !="sendlogfile" --- Or if you prefer remoteExec ["I am Batman!","ExampleLog"] remoteExecCall ["A3Log", 2]; //2 = send to server only and call is much faster Note: You would need to whitelist A3Log as a function that can only be executed on the server. --- So to describe the usage in general: The function A3Log (Serverside) handles the input and sends it to the A3Log extension. <Paramter> call A3Log; --- <Paramter> is an array [], which you can send up to 2 paramters in. [<text>,<category (This second one is optional)>] call A3Log; Attention! - If you want to rewrite the function that sends the log message to the extension, you need to include the information separator byte, which can be used in ArmA like this: <bla bla text> + toString[31] + <your-cool-category> //This all is from variable type string --- You can use this extension as client mod too, just make sure to disable Battleye, as the dll would get blocked by BE otherwise. ─────── Final words ─────── I will provide some additional usage examples and code snippets inside the A3Log_examples.pbo in the future. This is not a drag and drop everything will be logged for every mission you use addon. You still need to invest some time into the configuration and your setup, what you want to log. Since there are many versions of missions, which all differ in their code like an eventhandler for being killed or something, I can not provide code that fits with just a simple copy and paste. How ever I offer everybody to send me a request on these forums or via arkensor@gmail.com so that I can help him with either the setup or write some lines of code from him. I will expand this extension with my own ideas, and requests you guys might have, and it would be great to have some feedback on this. At this point I would like to thank Killzone_Kid, for making a great documentation and tutorials about extensions, which made me start with extension making for arma3. And thanks to my teammate Maurice for helping me with some magic c++ code! If you want to support me and my work, you can send me a donation via paypal. Thank you very much! ─────── Changelog ─────── v1.7: - [Added] x64 support for Windows and Linux . v1.6: - [Added] Optional console output for Windows. - Formating and preparations for a colored debug output Older versions: ─────── Requirements ─────── Windows: C++ Redistributable 2013 32-Bit - Download -> vcredist_x86 (This should be pre installed on all hosting providers) ─────── Download ─────── Download the file at armaholic.com: ─────── Screenshots ─────── This is my folder where I place my logs at serverdir/@A3Log/Logs: Note: Inside the folders are files which were written as the config had folder seperation enabled. License: If you have got any questions feel free to ask. Help me with your feedback to improve this project! Now have fun with it, and enjoy your clean log files :) Regards Arkensor
  11. Hi, Need some help please. Everything was great, then I updated yesterday to Version of PBO Project, now when I try and PBO anything I get the following message: <scanning files to pack> ................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................ </endscan> 'MakePbo.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. makepbo failed I have tried to re-install everything but still the same message comes up. I have the paid version of the Tools. ANy help would be great. Thank you in advance
  12. In a multiplayer survival mission I have going, I am trying to prevent my re-spawning players from simply walking up to their own bodies and looting their weapons and ammo -but- I don't want to disable looting altogether because I need them to be able to loot the enemy (OPFOR/Indep) during the course of the mission. So I tried this in an antiloot.sqf: and called it via the init.sqf....but it didn't seem to work. I'm not the best with using scripts so if someone knows what I am doing wrong or has an alternative code for preventing friendly looting i'd be delighted with any help I can get. Cheers

  16. Question So, I was wondering if it was possible to potentially make a custom text Heads Up Display that looks kind of like the Antistasi HUD. The Antistasi HUD includes things like Covertness, Balance of money, Following, etc... I was wondering how I would be able to do something like this with minimal effort involved. Possible Solutions I've tried using the titleText in order to display a variable from my "Variables.sqf" file, however; this isn't a good idea because I use the titleText for dialogue between the player and AI characters. <Variables.sqf> balance = 1200; <buildingtutorial.sqf> params ["_object", "_caller", "_actionId", "_args"]; _jeep = _args param [0]; _transporttruck = _args param [1]; ["TASK1", "SUCCEEDED"] call BIS_fnc_taskSetState; titleText[format["<t color='#00FF00'>Commander Petros</t>: Welcome to the new camp, newbie."], "PLAIN DOWN", -1, true, true]; sleep 5; titleText[format["<t color='#00FF00'>Commander Petros</t>: Go over to that workbench over there and build the vehicle depot, then come back to me and I'll purchase some vehicles for it."], "PLAIN DOWN", -1, true, true]; titleFadeOut 7; _object removeAction _actionId; _object addAction ["Buy Vehicles", "buyVehicle.sqf", [_jeep, _transporttruck]]; exit; I haven't actually found anything useful regarding a custom GUI or HUD in ArmA 3 quite yet so this would be really helpful. Thanks in advance for potential solution/help in the comments.

  21. Story This is a script that I wrote a few weeks ago for a friend. It's supposed to let AI's with specific backpack's deploy static weapons automatically in a combat. You can link specific backpacks with specific static weapons multiple times. This script doesn't work, if the AI is in a combat mode all the time or if the AI never gets to be in a combat mode. There are several routine integrated to avoid script errors. A description can be found inside the SQF file, how to execute the script. It's SP/MP/Dedicated and HC compatible. Have fun. Content It is a single ~80Code-Line-Big Script to let AI's with specific backpack's deploy static weapons automatically in a combat. Purpose The aim of this script is to make it easier to implement a universal script, which makes a combat with AI more interesting.

  22. so, the main problem contains in this code : TABLET_FNC_GETPLAYERSARRAY = { { if (isPlayer _x && alive _x) then { _index = lbAdd [14881, name _x]; _data = lbSetData [14881, _index, name _x]; //_index = lbAdd [14881, name _x]; //_data = lbSetData [14881, _index, name _x]; lbSetTooltip [14881, _index, name _x]; }; }forEach allUnits; while (true) do { _index = lbCurSel 14881; _target1 = lbdata [14881, _index]; sleep 0.1; }; }; MAIL_FNC_SENDLOCAL = { _message = ctrlText 14883; _text_admin_Err = format ["<t color='#F68617' >Ошибка блять сука не видит чела ебанного</t><br />"]; if (_target1 == "") exitWith {hint parseText (_text_admin_Err);}; //_target1 = missionNamespace getVariable ( _target1 ); _sender = player; _messagedisplay = parsetext format ["<t size='2' align ='center' color='#ffcc00'>Новое сообщение</t><br></br><br></br> <t size='1' align ='left' color='#00cc00'>Кому:</t><t align ='left'> Вам</t><br></br> <t size='1' align ='left' color='#00cc00'>От:</t> <t align ='left'> %1</t><br></br><br></br> <t size='1' align ='left' color='#00cc00'>Сообщение:</t><br></br> <t size='1' align ='left'>%2</t>", name player, _message]; lbAdd [14882, _message] call BIS_fnc_MP; ctrlSetText [14883, "Отправлено!"]; [_messagedisplay] remoteExec ["hint", _target1]; }; when I try to send msg to other players it's randomly sends to a random guy from GETPLAYERSARRAY_FUNC (or don't send it at all, idk why :< ) I want to make this code doing right - to send right message to the person, that I really select.
  23. Hello, We Want To Use Liberty Ship On Our Arma 3 Coop Server. But We Could Not Change The US Flag Of Liberty Ship In Multiplayer. Can You Help About This Topic?
  24. 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.
  25. 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! Coz there's no audible commentary in that video :( you guys notice all my shots land perfectly on that Steel Plate target, right? Not low or not high at all! Just perfectly dead on! \m/ Now that’s how you should snipe in Arma 3 (ACE3) from this moment on! Now it's all about ONE SHOT ONE KILL! Here's also some very nice tutorial pdf from QuickDagger (the author of Dagger Sniper Mod) → https://drive.google.com/open?id=1PWnTQRX-1NdpHFc2803mp5FbtCPykCZt Does my tutorial really work for live operative mission???
