Achilles Deprecation Notice Achilles is no longer under active development by the core dev team. Please check out Zeus Enhanced (ZEN) instead. Note that you can still create pull requests, which will be bundled and released as updates if accepted. Description Achilles is a gameplay modification for Arma 3. It expands the Zeus real-time editor with many new additions as well as provides bug fixes. Achilles started as an expansion to Ares mod, which was created by Anton Struyk. Achilles became the de facto successor to Ares at the point the latter was no longer updated. Achilles has already grown into a splendid project, but new additions are still to come!
