    • 3 included helicopters in script, Ghosthawk, Hellcat & Mohawk, others to follow if enough interest.
    • Helicopter doors open & close (except Hellcat) when above or below 10 metres
    • Helicopter will explode after the crash landing so make sure you get well clear!

Robalo released version 0.9.3 of his ASR AI 3 addon on the BI forums.

    Quote Robalo :
    This is my AI enhancement mod for Arma3.
    It was primarily developed with dedicated server / coop gameplay in mind, although it works just as well for single player use.
    I have played both campaign episodes with zero issues having this mod enabled (in fact, I probably would not have played them at all otherwise).

    All the scripted features are running server side only. If a player joins a server with the mod active, his userconfig has no effect, the server scripted settings are applied, even for AI spawned/running on the player's machine.

    • improved Zeus compatibility. Note: game master must be running ASR AI3.
    • allow danger.fsm improvements to be executed on clients.
    • reduced default smoke usage when hit (can still be tweaked in userconfig further).
    • group to group target sharing was not functional, fixed that.
    • minor code improvements.

Kaelies released an updated version of his South Zagorian Army Mod on the BI forums.

    Quote Kaelies :
    This addon aims to create a fictional army based upon the South Zagorian/Chernarussian region that has been created in ArmA 2, and is based upon fictional events which occur after the fictional events which originally occured in ArmA 2. This army utilizes mainly modifications of Afghanistan-era Soviet Arms, thanks to control of a few factories in the northern part of Chernarus. This release has infantry units and a UAZ, other vehicles will come later.

    • Added new sounds for most new guns
    • Added new reloading animation for AK rifles
    • Added HK MP5, HK33, HK53, G3, and so forth
    • Added prototype AK-174sz, RPK-174sz
    • Added AK-174szK series intermediate-length weapons
    • Moved bipods to be attachments for possible TMR compatibility
    • Added optional config to allow RDS tanks to be used. Currently only T-72A/B/BM and BMP-2 are supported
    • Added Takistani Elite troops
    • Added Isklaristani troops
    • Some slight adjustments to gear of SZ forces
    • Added Field Medic and Field Doctor (WIP) to SZ
    • Added PGO-7 placeholder scope for RPG-7
    • Reworked RPG-7 ballistics to be better
    • Added zeroing to RPG-7 iron sight
    • Reworked textures on older SZ forces, including UN
    • Added Elite Rifleman class for certain factions
    • Fixed: Mi-24 missiles should not have lock-on. It has been removed
    • Fixed: UAZs should now properly spawn when using ALiVE
    • RU faction now has their proper UAZ
    • CDF now has retextured UAZ in a new camouflage
    • Known Bug: Mi-24 for CDF still has RU camo, no Mi-24 for RU forces
    • Known Bug: UN Tanks have wrong crew classname, you'll have to place it as empty
    • Known Bug: Animation weirdness on new AK reload in third-person

Mikey74 informed us he released an updated version of his Artificial intelligence Support System 2 on the BI forums.
Artificial intelligence Support System is now called Artificial intelligence Support System 2!

    Quote Mikey74 :
    Like AISS AISS2 is mostly autmatic.

    Waypoints play a role:
    Right now the important ones are Hold,Support, and Cycled.
    If a group has a current waypoint at hold. AISS2 will ignor them as far as a support call. But they will still call others to support them.
    The support way point will ignor Garrison and patrol commands by AISS but they will be in the pool to be called in for support.
    If a unit has a cycled waypoint and its the current way point it will be treated like a hold waypoint.

    All other waypoints at the moment are remembered but do not affect AISS command and control.

    Infantry will now Garrison a building if one is close by, or go on a patrol. If they are Garrisoning a house they will not be in the pool for support. That being said Garrisoning units will not Garrison forever, but every so often change buildings. Also They will not stay in a building if engaged by an enemy and they do not have a good firing lane. They will leave there post to find a better firing position. There is more that needs to be done with this, but its a bit beyond my knowledge at the moment.
    Patroling groups willl be in a supporting pool, but once they have finished there support call they will resume there patrol, or Garrison if AISS dictates this.

    Mech units:
    Basically same as before they will mount if enemy is far off and dismount with in 300 meters of known enemies. They do not search houses at the moment. This may be added later updates as well as adding a user config for you to dictate ranges of mounting.

    Armor, and CAS:
    If they are called in for support. They will try and find position supiriority on the enemy, and engage.

    Radio calls for support by AI:
    If a group deams Enemy strength to be greater than there own they will call for support. Much can be improved on this in future updates.
    Artiller is done basically the same way. There are user configs that you can adjust to you tastes.

    • Added better reaction when AI is fired upon.
    • Added script for Arty knowledge of target. For immersion.

Pepe Hal released his Unlocked Uniforms addon on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This small addon unlocks every uniform to all factions in Arma 3.

    You can now loot and wear any uniform you may find - except for civilian clothings (I'm working on that but it is rather complicated).
    Note that wearing an enemy uniform doesn't allow to pose as an enemy : uniforms don't affect side relations.

    This mod should be compatible with most addon units : if you stumble upon any exception, please report it so I can make it compatible.

Tpw released an updated version of his TPW MODS on the BI forums.
With this update it is important that you update your /userconfig/tpw_mods/tpw_mods.hpp!

    Quote tpw :
    In the months since Arma 3 alpha was released I wrote a number of mods which did different things, but all of which had a common goal of increasing the immersion and realism of the single player experience in Arma 3. As the number of mods and their complexity increased, I found it increasingly difficult to keep track of feedback on multiple threads and maintain them all separately, so I took the decision to bundle them all into one addon, imaginatively titled TPW MODS.

    TPW MODS consists of a number of independently configurable mods.

    • [ALL] TPW_settings.jar, a Java graphic utility to edit TPW_MODS.hpp, is now included in userconfig. Many many thanks to Gliptal for developing this.
    • [HUD 1.15] Killed drivers/gunners no longer displayed. Gunner displayed only if no driver.
