!Hello Again All, I'd like to get a better understanding about using or adding an 'Addons' folder to my A3 game.
In the instructions for some mods I sometimes see these instructions:-->

"You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My
Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like
For example this:
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name1\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\

(I guess that the above "Arma3 Alpha" may be just the Arma3" folder of my A3 game.)

?1. Does '@Your_mod_folder' mean the addons inside of the folder of a mod like "ACE3 or RHS" or, does it mean a mod I made?
?2. What does "your_mod_folder_name1\addons\" mean?
I do not see any 'Addon folders'in any of my missions located in C:\uesr\Douuments\Arma3\missions.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I've used a Addons folder in Soucemod for games like Counterstrike and L4dead but have not had to install or create an Addons folder for any A3 files I've downloaded as of yet.
I'd just like a better understanding of the Instalation of some Arma 3 downloads. Please help.

P.s, I hope I'm placing this post in the correct place Mr. Admin. If this is the wrong place to post my question, please post it where it should be poster and let me know where to find it. That way I'll know where to post a question like this in the future. DBD

"Arma3 Alpha" is now obsolete, if the page/s is showing that then it's because they are old download pages for mods which have not been updated since for the alpha release when ArmA 3 first came out. It's actually just "Arma 3" with a space between.

Though this is not the correct way to install mods anyway. This is for your Saves, Profile, and Missions folder. You must have got confused with the missions/mods installation differences.

To install mods you need to do as so - http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=29755

If you still have questions after that then feel free to reply again. The above page pretty much explains it all :-)

Thank's DarkXess for Your reply. I sometimes get confused when the instructions say "install in your mods folder" or "use a modfolder". I've read the info on the site You refer to but i still don't get it. At this time I've been able to install all the mods and addons but I don't fell like I understand just what I'm doing. I've had the same problem with many game mods, however, sooner of later I'll figure it out. Thank's Again.
