Chessmaster42 released an updated wip version of his Curator Presets Mod on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This is an addon for Arma 3 that provides script presets in Zeus (aka Curator) mode in the Modules screen.
    This mod is very simple but very useful now that Zeus has been released to Stable. I needed a way to run scripts on objects but not have to give debug console access both in the mission and to users in general. As a result I came up with this mod to help provide some extra utility to Zeus. It's still very basic and needs a ton of work but I wanted to throw it out here for you guys to consume and try out.

    Changelog:
    • version 1.7.1:
        - Fixed some critical issues in the last update
    • version 1.7:
        - Added Spawn Garrison module

minuz released in the [url=]BI forums[/url] his new mission which is basically a follow up mission to The Druglord Co-05 (@).

    Quote minuz :
    2014, Afghanistan, near the village of Loy Mandeh - Checkpoint Toki is considered to be one of the most dangerous square miles on earth.
    Deep in taliban territory, this checkpoint is meant to be one of the first instances of presence of the coalition forces.
    Operation Al Rafaz is an attempt to gain ground and shut down local opium poppy plantations.
    Your job will be to advance and secure several compounds of the outskirts of Loy Mandeh to get closer into the village to show a stronger presence towards the taliban and the local civilians.
    We know that Loy Mandeh is most likely riddled with IEDs, be careful in your advancing. Try to defuse any IEDs that can be detected with the help of your EOD.

JCae2798 aka GigaS released his latest singleplayer mission in the BI forums.

    Quote JCae2798 aka GigaS :
    In this mission, you are part of an elite team who is tasked to follow a specific contact and found out where the HVTs are hiding. From there you will need to eliminate all of them before returning to the safe house. Good luck.

Jeza informed us NightIntruder released the first beta version of his Grumman C-1A Trader on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    The Grumman C-1 Trader is a carrier onboard delivery (COD) variant of the Grumman S-2 Tracker. The C-1 was outfitted to carry nine passengers or 4,800 pounds (2,400 kg) of cargo and first flew in January 1955. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s the C-1 Trader carried mail and supplies to aircraft carriers on station in the Pacific Ocean during the Vietnam War and also served as a trainer for all-weather carrier operations. Over its production life 83 C-1 Traders were built. The last C-1 was retired from USN service in 1988.
    In ARMA2 it can supplement other carrier-based aircrafts giving possibility to fly cargo/soldier transport missions from/to aircraft carrier or land bases. It might be used as a two-seater trainer in Navy pilot training or in a SP campaign. There is also static wreck included and the addon has numerous hide-type animations for cutscenes or MMs purposes.

    Features:
    • two flyable variants of the Trader and static one (wreckage):
    • 6 liveries of US Navy squadrons
    • 72 real crew memers tags included (switchable)
    • custom sound of real radial engines
    • compatible with ACE2, UNSUNG Mod and JDOG’s USS Nimitz ver. 0.93
    • numerous animations and effects, to include: cockpit levers, tailhook, side doors, sound and visual effects of raining, stall effects, wings folding, exhaust with smoke effect and more
    • primary flight instruments working
    • optional script giving a crew of the aircraft a chance for bailing out after destruction of the aircraft

QuickDagger released an updated version of his Dagger Scopes addon on the Armaholic forums.

    Quote QuickDagger :
    I like to play the game as a long range shooter, which means I stay 75% of the time looking though scopes. I´ve bought myself a wide screen and could not accept the fact that I had to keep using only a tinny part of its potential by looking through small scope lens all the time. It was a bit claustrophobic to me . In real life, besides the image on a scope be of a small FOV - Field Of View, in your brain the image is formed as something bigger. And the image itself can be a lot larger, should you employ proper eye relief. Don´t need to say you can always shoot with both eyes opened. All those factors have made me build some new scopes with a better screen fit. Because my FOV´s might be a little wider it does not mean they are cheating. A little wider scope for a very narrow FOV is still narrow enough.
    Then, I´ve tested the SWM mod and got amazed by their wide screen reticles. So, I thought I could do the same and ... here we are!

    All scopes were made for extremely accurate range estimation and bullet drop compensations!

    Inside this pack you will find a detailed manual explaining how to operate each one of the scopes and bringing detailed information about the magnification and ballistics math.

    Changelog:
    • Re-zeroed the scoped rifles (9x39 at 100 m, .223 and .308 at 300 m, .300 and .338 at 400 m, .50 and 25x59 at 500 m, 7.62x54R according to the BDC).
    • Redone all BDC´s to be accurate with Dagger Ballistics, except for the 5.56, I´ll do them on a next release.
    • Added new lens effects such as dust, fingerprints and a new scope contour.
    • Added new scopes (Leupold Mk6 H59, ACOG 6x, PSO1, PSO1M2, POSP, SOFLAM and Mil-R).
    • Fixed many suppressed weapons not being recognized by the AI as suppressed.
    • Fixed the HK417 and SCAR-H sniper versions dispersions to match the DMR.
    • Fixed many weapons not using Dagger Scopes.
    • Allowed more weapons to use the sight adjustment system.
