Sil Carmikas released an updated version of his Simple Random Weather Script on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This is a bit of a mashup using manage_weather.sqf files from the original Liberation 0.924 mission from [GREUH]zBug and [GREUH]McKeewa.
    The code will execute within the mission to add random weather pattern generation making use of the newer selectRandom command (Arma 3 Version: 1.56) This does not offer parameter selection for servers, the only customization that can be done is within the SQF file. This is a very basic script I am working with to learn scripting for Arma 3. Anyone is welcome to use this as they see fit.

    • Removed setFog entry from Initial Weather section
    • hanged setFog settings in Random Weather to the following ----> 0 setFog [0, 0, 0]. This update ensures that the fog level is zeroed out, it's intent being to help with FPS issues.
    • Added selectRandom command to Initial Weather settings to make a more randomized starting weather pattern.

IceBreakr released released an updated version of Lingor + Dingor Island for Arma 3 on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This lush green environment in a fictional country somewhere near the Equator. Inspiration were countries such as Venezuela & Colombia. ~9 months were spent on research and creation of this world.
    Reason for the project is that I've been waiting for years for a proper optimised jungle map. With help of great talented man Berghoff that is now (after 9-10 months of hard work) possible to enjoy.
    We have to understand that vegetation rich map is a whole different matter in BIS engine. PCs that were able to run Duala/Panthera on max settings & view distance of 10 km will probably only have sufficient FPS with 1000-4000 meter distance on Lingor. With months of optimisations (especially Berghoff did an amazing feat here) we can now enjoy jungle from air or from a grunt's perspective.

    Lingor has been updated to v3.81! This time he brought his tanned brother with him - Dingor: Alternative Desert version.

    • substantial terrain smoothing & various improvements
    • removed CUP CWA dependency (buildings error popup)
    • built four new bridges, rivers are now inter-connected (great for boat patrols)
    • rebuilt the central river area, new remote settlement on an isle
    • fixed long bridges so vehicles don't sink into the asphalt
    • added: Dingor - alternative desert version map!
    • fixed rally path (increased visibility)
    • added more docks to settlements
    • enabled dust effects for vehicles and units
    • replaced wrong in/out signs for town of Vidora

Road Runner released his MK18 MOD 0 on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This isn't a port from A2 addon , it's the SOTG M4A5 with the barrel shortened to 10.5"
    The textures are from Sabre found on various M4 weapons that use the same model (found at gamebanana)
    I've included one of the desert variant camo's from RH's A2 MK18 addon.

    Points of interest:
    The LMT cut down rear sight is fixed in place, and doesn't dissapear when optics are used, it's not suposed to, as that was one of the main features of the MK18 Mod 0, it was designed for use by Navy SEAL's for CQBR, using Red dot sights and in particular the M68 aimpoint around that time.I've seen plenty of them in Iraq, I had my own personal one from 2004-2008, and used it with my own M68/Eotech 552.

    • version 1.7:
        - removed obsolete test model left over from last update
    • version 1.6:
        - Added 3 additional LODS

DL++ released a new video showing the melee system he is adding to his No Cure mod, an open world, zombie & human survival mod, on the Armaholic forums.

    Quote :
    With No Cure you will face many challenges in a new Post apocalyptic environment. You will need to hunt and scavenge for essentials to survive and stay fed and hydrated. Once the essentials are taken care of you can begin exploring deeper into the mist of the dead where you will find life stealing bandits, struggling survivors, and settlements hanging on to existence. All with one common goal…. To survive the deceased lands riddled with mutated death.

    I have added a first build of the Melee system added.
    It is still a bit buggy, need to add some more sound effects etc but here you can see it working.

You can find more screens, videos and information in the No Cure WIP topic.

Road Runner released an updated version of the CAG HK416 (Geiselle SMR), which was given to him by Toadie2K, on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    Okay guys, here's the CAG HK416 with the 10" Geiselle upper, made and donated to me by Toadie2K, without whose generocity, this wouldn't have been able to be released.

    Don't get overly excited, I'm sure there will be better models in the works, but this gives you something to use till that addon arrives!

    It uses the SMA suppressors as default, as they're the best models out there just now, and it uses ASDG rail system as well, again I tried to use the SMA stuff but that didn't work too well, as they have a unique configuration for their ASDG's.

    • Tidied up spme configs.

Kydoimos submitted an updated version of his Eden Objects addon for Arma 3.

    Quote :
    Eden Objects is a concise collection of highly-detailed models for Arma 3, created to celebrate the release of the new 3D editor.

    Each item has been fully localized and comes with all the relevant LODs (levels of detail). Some have been assigned hiddenSelections too, allowing you to add new textures via the setObjectTexture command; a number of PSD files have also been included and can be found inside the download folder. If you cannot access Photoshop, I recommend downloading and acquiring the necessary plugin.

    • Added: Chemlight box object with 12 chemlights.
    • Added: Syndikat Narcotics.
    • Added: Syndikat Narcotics (x3 bricks).
    • Fixed: Objects now have correct mass.
    • Fixed: Bandages were missing their display name.
    • Tweaked: 'Unarmed reading clipboard' animation.
