An unofficial extension Workshop GitHub "War is expensive: from laser-guided missiles to large-yield bombs, getting things done can be hard on your pocket. When funds start going low and budget cuts roll in, that's when warfare becomes about improvising and being creative. Sometimes, that means dropping barrels loaded with TNT and shrapnel on refugee camps." - The Guy Who Invented Barrel Bombs (probably) Description So both in celebration of the Laws of War DLC, and Al-Assad's birthday, I've decided to give myself the challenge to make a mod which in my opinion was long over-due: the ability to deploy Barrel Bombs in ArmA 3. After about three days of intense development, it's finally ready to ship: Customize the payload according to your strategic needs, load it into a helicopter, and drop away! How to use In the editor, search for and place Barrel Bomb Dispenser (Large) in your mission. ACE Interact with the dispenser, and Prepare a Barrel Bomb. You may now select between the types of fuse (Air-burst or Impact detonation), and the strength of the payload, or how many cluster munitions will be included in the barrel. If your dispenser has enough materials remaining, hit CONFIRM. As soon as you're done, a new barrel will appear, ready to be loaded. You may also inspect any barrels and read their label in order to confirm their properties. Carry the barrel to the desired Helicopter, then Prime and load it. Keep in mind that vehicles only have a limited amount of barrels that can be loaded - all barrels take up the same space. From the Helicopter - as either the pilot, copilot, or turret-gunners - ACE Interact with the vehicle and Check Barrel Bombs. Select the desired barrel and simply hit the confirmation button. F.A.Q. Yup. Should work with all Helicopters, I reckon. You bet. Both for self-hosted servers and Dedicated, works all the same. Use this function. Start an issue on GitHub. If you don't have an account there, use the Steam Workshop discussions. If none of these methods is accessible to you, then you can reach me on Steam and yell until things are fixed. Kind of. Regardless, be careful whenever deploying over a populated urban environment, as the paramedic/journalist/child-seeking shrapnel module is currently active, and it never misses. Sorry, not at this time. Shout-outs BromA, for being the coolest group of badasses autistic losers out there. McGabe and Wronglets, for helping me test this thing. The ACE3 Team, for keeping their mod the way all mods should be: open-source and extendable by the community. Cheers, fellas. And of course, Bashar Al-Assad, for re-popularizing this absolutely reprehensible, but still very amusing type of ordinance. Happy belated birthday! License This mod has absolutely no license whatsoever. Steal it, repack it, rename it, stretch it, twist it, lick it or suck it, it's your problem, I really, really don't care. Just to be real clear, you ARE free to: Unpack this mod and edit the everliving shit out of it. Rename it into something else and claim credits for yourself. Sell it or commercialize it, which in that case you've found someone stupid enough to buy it so my personal congratulations. Re-upload or re-repack it on any other website or re-distribution service, just don't blame me if your version is out-dated. Using it for real-life military purposes of any kind. Actually, if this mod ends up being used by actual armed forces for training, someone please let me know so I can tell all my friends and family about it. However, If you do plan on improving it it, this mod is stringtabled and can be translated - so that and any other contributions are better off done at Github so everyone else may benefit from it.
