I have a question concerning the installation of new mods. After I download a new version of the mod, which I already have in my Arma3 directory, do I need to "uncheck it" in the addons menu, and then "check it" again, or is the game smart enough to use it without all the fuss, which accompanies the installation of new mods? I have so many mods, that I can't initialize them by command line in Steam. I have to install them manually in game menu, but new versions come out so often that it's becoming really frustrating to do that every.single.time a new version of MCC or XMed system pops out. Help appreciated.

You can also use a mod launchers like pay withsix this will both update and launch the mods for you. also you can combine mods into on folder ( like -mod=@planes;@tanks etc.). Also if you replace the files in a mod folder, restarting is all you have to do. The game will then load all folders no matter what is in them.

Thanks for the help! So if I install new version of the mod, then it will be automatically updated? Or do I have to enter the game, and then restart it i.e quit and then enter it again? I will definetly check the launcher thingie.

If your ingame and install an update for a mod while the game is running, then in order to see any new changes the update made, you need to quit, and restart the game.
