X39 informed us he released an updated version of the ObjectOrientedScripting on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    What is ObjectOrientedScripting (OOS)?
    OOS is a new script language that will be translated to native SQF meaning that it is 100% compatible with SQF.
    It makes it possible to develop modifications in an ObjectOriented way (thats why it is callen ObjectOrientedScripting ... ok i admit ... that was too obvious :P)

    Why would we want to stop using SQF?
    well ... its a quite complex thematic where most of it is personal choice thus i cant rly help you with this questions
    there is just one thing i can tell you:
    ObjectOriented Programming (in this case Scripting) has the benefit that youre (in theory) faster in developing scripts
    for some comparison, please read this.

    • Wrapper: Fixed -gen is not working if file is not existing
    • Compiler: Flag /DEFINE="#whatever(arg) dosomething with arg"
    • Compiler: Flag /THISVAR="_thisvarname_"
    • Compiler: PreProcessor replaced non-keywords when they just contained a part of the keyword
    • Compiler: PreProcessor now supports "merge" operator
    • GEN2 Implementation
    • New Syntax
    • New SQF ObjectStructure
    • Type Restriction (with that all stuff that is connected to it)
    • Interfaces (and with them virtual functions)
    • "Linker" issues with proper issue IDs
    • No unneeded overhead anymore

Hcpookie released an updated version of his Pook SAM Pack on the Armaholic forums.

    Quote :
    Modern SAM Systems including 9K33x, 9K37, 9K317, and 96K6 platforms. Their original Russian designations are used. Missile performance and behavior based on real-world data and video footage. The 9K33x, 9K37, and 9K317 are normally radar guided, and they can also be optically guided in an ECM-heavy environment. Therefore, I added manual control to these missiles. This is subject to removal in future releases based on feedback.

    All BIS factions represented, since it stands to reason that the CDF and Takistani Army would have acquired these in their inventories.

    • Fixed: C-RAM shadow bug.
    • New: RWR Incoming Missile alerts for some planes. This feature is WIP and only applies to some planes at present. Scripting instructions added for addon/mission makers to add this new alert feature to any plane in-game.

SpeisCheese released his EuroMercs Faction on the Armaholic forums.

    Quote :
    A new custom faction I made for fun. I also used this faction to test my capabilities for dependencies.
    The European Mercenaries Faction, also called EuroMercs, is an independent and private military company that will only operate for the interests of the European Union. While NATO and CSAT forces are fighting in the East, EuroMercs have to do smaller jobs, like defending borders, or missions like Counter-Terrorism.
    They are counting now more than 100.000 soldiers and operate prototypes and older vehicles like the Bo-105.

    I recommend you to use "RHS" or "East vs West" to include Russian and US ennemies/allies.

    • Reworked all textures
    • Replaced the Bo-105 with the EC-365
    • Small bug fixes

KoffeinFlummi released an updated version of the BWMod on the BI forums.

    Quote KoffeinFlummi :
    The BWMod team's goal is to supply the Arma 3 community with a set of vehicles, weapons and equipment to be used in 2020 by the German Army, like the IdZ system and vehicles currently being introduced, such as the IFV Puma.
    We are not associated with the BWMod for OFP and the earlier Arma games, but since the team around that mod abandoned the project, we will continue where they left of and equip players with high-quality vehicles and weapons.

    • fixed: Rendering issue with certain uniforms due to Arma v1.52 update.
