Hello everyone!

I'm sorry for bothering you but I had a question regarding the custom weapons. I recently downloaded a vast range of weapons such as custom AK's, M4, M16, FAMAS etc... I'm very satisfied with it, exept for one thing : I'm not abble to pick up the weapons I downloaded on the corpse of my ennemies. That is to say that appart from the armory, I've got no other means to use these custom weapons. Is that normal and is there a possibility to change that? I added these guns to see more diversity on the battlefield, I would like to feel it ><

Thanks by advance! ;)

Yes it's normal that by just downloading a weapon addon the stock units are not using them. Search for "replacement addons" for your weaponpack and use that, there's a good chance you find some for popular weapon packs.

Hi!

Thank you very much for your answer, I will do that. Does the file as a special extension or something? I mean can I miss it if I'm not used to mod things or is it so obvious that I would have noticed it in the files I've downloaded if they were any replacement files? And also how can we install it?

I know I'm asking a lot of things, but I'm new on ArmA and modding this game is absolutely new for me ><

Thanks by advance!

Any decent weapon mod should include a weapons box with all it's new stuff added to it. To use those weapons in a custom mission you can usually just place that box near your starting area and pick and choose from it.

Otherwise you can use simple scripting to change weapons. For example the FAMAS pack actually includes the code needed to do this and all the classnames on it's download page.

You can set the custom weapons in the editor

How does one set the custom weapons in editor? I would like the AI units under my command to use hk416s from the RH pack.
