If your new to ArmA 3 then to fully enhance its potential you should use Addons and start creating your own Missions. Check out this guide for mission editing (this guide is for ArmA 1, but it still applies to arma 2 and 3). Check out the Mission Editing FAQ also.

Of course I should mention that anyone who plays the ArmA games should first and most importantly have CBA.

Right now as of January 13th 2014 - ArmA 3 is still very new and not alot of Addons have been released yet, so I am just going to put the ones essential for now and during the course I will update this thread accordingly.

So, which Addon is for you? check out my list below and be sure to recommend any that ive not listed.

Game Interface

Adjustable Full Screen Night Vision
Compass and Watch Enlarger
cTab - Commander's Tablet
Deadfast's Visible Crosshairs
MRB Voice Stop
Rifle Collision Addon
ShackTac Fireteam HUD
Tao Folding Map
Task Force Arrowhead Radio

Effects

Blastcore A3
Blood Mist
Design Mastery Lights

Sounds

JSRS2.0

Islands

ArmA 3 Map Pack - A3MP

If your having problems with the game ie: fps issues, crashes, errors, launch problems etc then check out this thread.

I just got arma3 steam 3 hours left on download looking forward to getting stuck.
I would like advice on which are the required addons and mods to get the best from the game in terms of enjoyment and realism now I am a mature player being in my 50s so dont use joypads or joysticks just plain old mouse and keyboard, I also do not do the multiplayer thing much although I am trying out dayz arma2 shilst arma3 is downloading.

I did look at the sticky on the subject of Mods but that is quite old and the op does not appear to have updated it.
I have downloaded ACE3 and CBA3 for now

I would recommend to get used to the game and learn your way around, play the tutorial missions and other things in it before you start messing with mods, knowing what the game does before you add something is important to understand if something goes wrong with what you added.
