You can use the helicopter in NATO and AFF factions as well as Hellas faction (Blufor and IND sides).
Also it is playable at NATO and AAF factions as well as in my Hellas faction (in both BLUFOR and IND sides).
There is 2 textures :
- The ALAT (Aviation Légère de l'Armée de Terre) french squadron of the french army.
- The 33F Flottille of the french Navy (33th Squadron).
The Team R3F released an updated version of the R3F French Weapons Pack on the Armaholic forums.
Quote : R3F French Weapons Pack is a french's army weapons and accessories addon. This pack contains high definition models without any game performance decrease. It's a ported version of our Arma 2 R3F Armes addon, using Arma 3 new possibilities.
Megagoth1702 informed us he releasedan early alpha version of his VolumeLevels soundmod patch for his MegaSound mod on the BI forums.
This is very early Alpha and optional release!
Quote : Goal: Create a cleaner sound mix, reduce volume of most of the stuff so that guns and other agressive stuff stands out like a well mixed song where you can clearly hear the kick and snare drum. Currently you can only test out small firefights and The M2A1 Slammer and nothing is final.
PROBLEMS: If you only use "volumeLevels" in vanilla arma3, start a game and turn up your volume to hear environment & charater sounds nicely you WILL GO DEAF when everything around you starts happening. All the other sounds have their volume on the old, loud values and are not balanced. So this only works nicely with MegaSound mod. Kind of, it's still an Alpha.
Gc8 released an updated version of the Arma 3 version of his Base generator script on the BI forums.
Quote : I wanted to release this base generator script for arma 3 in case someone needs one. I haven't found any other script that would generate bases or towns for you in arma 3 so here you go.
What it does is like the name says, it generates a base with walls and buildings inside it at selected location, size and angle.
I originally released this for arma 2 so it's missing certain capabilities that are not supported in arma 3. Like I have not found a solid way to put objects in compositions due to lack of 3D editor in arma 3. But hopefully I find some 3D editor at some point which can do the job. If anyone knows a one please let me know. Thanks.
Hope you find this script useful. I have put together a demo mission where you can see the script in action.
the buildings are now more evenly distributed across the base

“On behalf of everyone here at Bohemia, I’d like to congratulate the winners, and thank all of the contestants, supporters, and judges for their enthusiasm and hard work. As developer of the Arma series, it’s very inspiring to see content creators bring such varied, creative, high-quality additions to the Arma 3 platform, as well as the passionate embrace of their efforts by the Arma community. The Make Arma Not War contest is an important first step in the promoting and rewarding of content creators, and we look forward to building upon this commitment in the upcoming year.”
In order to better facilitate player-created content, Arma 3 features Steam Workshop integration, which enables people to easily share and install custom scenarios and addons. Bohemia Interactive plans to expand Arma 3’s Steam Workshop implementation to support full mods, total conversions and much larger file sizes in the near future. In addition, the studio is pursuing other opportunities that might help player-created content flourish, such as a potential Steam Workshop marketplace where Arma 3 content creators could sell their work. More specific details will be shared in a future devblog.
AntonStruyk released an updated version of his @Ares mod, which adds a modules expanding Zeus functionality, on the BI forums.
Quote : Ares is a mod aimed expanding the tools available to Zeus so that it is possible to create more varied and compelling missions. The goal is to add simple useful functionality to Zeus without requiring any extra mods running on other clients or the server.
Ares is designed to work with dedicated servers which may be running missions that allow JIP and respawn. The new functionality it is aimed at running with trusted players in a structured mission and is not recommended for general 'public server' play.
General - Fixed missing entry for 1.6.0 in readme.txt
Util - Fixed issue where player groups were lost when switching sides

RickB informed the community on the Armaholic forums he is working on a fictional island called Bror for Arma 3.
Quote : Let me introduce my current project: Bror.
Bror is a fictional scandinavian (danish) island group in the middle of somewhere far way north from the european mainland. I decided not to give it a story right now, because that´s what you will do after release, and good stories for european winter islands are rare these days, but we will see.
village like housing areas
small capital town
2 Airfields - a small one, and a larger airbase on a seperate island
a small cave
another cave (a lot bigger)
snow (snowheaps) - trying to produce a little more immersion than just having white ground texture
an old castle (gammel borg)
military bases and outposts
And... snow white rabbits! yay
You can find more information and leave your feedback in the Bror WIP topic.
Zenophon informed us he released an updated version of his Co-op Mission Framework and SQF Library on the BI forums.
Quote : Ladies and gentlemen, Armaholics of all ages, I am proud to present a work over a year in the making: Zenophon's ArmA 3 Co-op Mission Framework. My framework is a library of over 190 SQF functions organized into a carefully designed API that is both easy to use and extremely powerful. The functions cover everything from manipulating arrays to an extensive task system. Each one has been meticulously designed and tested to provide useful features with minimal bugs and issues. The framework is designed so that each function is a logical building block that achieves a straightforward effect. The strength of the framework is that each small part fits together neatly with others, allowing you to quickly implement your mission design intuitively.
The framework works with any map and requires no addons. It is compatible with any mod because you choose which functions execute. There is effectively no performance impact to compile the entire framework, and every function has been diligently optimized. All 150 public functions are also carefully documented in an exacting style, and many resources are provided to help you learn to use the framework.
The framework is created with these goals in mind:
Simple co-op fun for both players and mission makers
Bottom-up design using flexible pieces that you control
Truly random and dynamic missions without extra work for mission designers
Procedural mission design instead of manual placement using the editor
Eliminating large, static functions with assumptions about what you want in your mission
Server-oriented execution to create more efficient multiplayer missions
A simplification of locality and interacting with clients in multiplayer
A solid, powerful, and bug-free library to use as a foundation for your own code
Fixed: Zen_GiveLoadoutBlufor, Zen_GiveLoadoutIndfor, Zen_GiveLoadoutOpfor turned on NVG's for guerrilla and civilian loadouts
Fixed: Zen_GiveLoadoutCustom turned on NVG's when none were specified in the loadout
Fixed: Zen_OrderFastRope did not adjust rope length for helicopter movement
Fixed: Zen_OrderInfantryPatrolBuilding did not keep stopped units moving if the AI was not ready
Fixed: Zen_OrderInsertion now remote executes disembark orders for remote AI
Fixed: Zen_RotateAsSet reversed the height of objects
