Simple really: I installed the mod about a week ago and it worked fine for a few days. Then it seemed like various sets of weapons progressively disappeared from the equipment box. At first it was my black ACRs, then my M14 sniper variants and it continued until I had only a few sets. I don't think this is weapon-pack specific.

I was told these weapons were disappearing because some were role-specific (SEAL Team 3 server) but I've changed both my role and server and I'm still missing the same weapons. Any advice?

Even if you have the mod loaded you often won't be able to use the weapons unless the mission allows for it.

But when I first installed the mods and played on the very same server they were all there. My M16A1 set occasionally appears and disappears again too, while playing as the same class on ST3.

Without looking specifically, just from memory...RH weapons work by replacing some stock AK's I believe, plus there are Pistol Packs, Rifle Packs and so on...
Both server and client need to be running the mod for it to work. If you want to use the weapons, they have to be specified in the mission (during mission creation) so there would be a kit loadout or weaponbox loadout required for the weapons to appear.
So what we are saying is - the mission designer will need to add those weapons. If he did not, or the server is not running the RH Pack Mod, the guns will not show up.
Play around with it yourself by adding weapons to a mission in the editor. Search Kit Loadout, Weapon script, Weapon/AmmoBox Filler etc,etc

....that's all folks....!

I did a google image search for that and came up with this as the first result. Seems legit. :)

Yeah I understand it varies from server to server whether they've enabled RH, but as I said when I first downloaded the addons they worked fine; only after joining around a week later did they start to disappear. On second thought it's probably still due to the server - ST3 admins are always messing with their server, resetting it etc. Only problem is ST3 is the only server I've tried that seems to have enabled RH or any weapon add-ons for that matter.
