Stcrowe released an updated version of his Loadout Transfer on the BI forums.
The Armaholic hosted archive does contain both an addon as well as a script version!

    Quote :
    Loadout Transfer is an addon meant for mission makers that will allow players to not only transfer their loadouts to other players on the server, but will also allow players to load their loadouts, save their loadouts, edit the loadout order, and more. Loadout Transfer does all this by working within vanilla BI loadout storage (Arsenal).

    Script Version:
      The script version must be included in your mission folder (make sure to read the documentation). It is standalone, and does not require anyone to download an extra mod.
    Regular Mod Version:
      This is the regular mod version. It has all the features of the script version plus it allows you to quickly setup Loadout Transfer menus using a module in the editor. This is idiot proof. Install mod, place down module, sync objects you want to have the menu to module.
      Remember all missions made with the mod version will require that users have the Regular version or E version installed
    E Mod Version:
      This is a special version that has all the features of the mod version and it includes the full Loadout Transfer menu to every ammo box in the game (and from other mods as long as they are descendant of vanilla ammo boxes). You cannot turn this feature off, so if you don't want that feature then use the regular mod version.
      Remember all missions made with the mod version will require that users have the Regular version or E version installed

    • Added a new module called Loadout Transfer Settings where you can set the transfer distance and allow the loadout menu to show upon respawn
    • You can now enable and disable Loadout in the Loadout Transfer Menu.

lukinator96 released his Tanoan Armed Forces on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This adds Tanoan Army faction to the game.
    Tanoan military lacks armor, modern equipment and even protective gear. Their goal is mobility, so they have
    really light equip, helicopter support to make it fast to the target and LRRP that stalks jungles for weeks long.
    Their best description is light infantry.

    • New poorly equiped faction of Tanoa Armed Forces, armed with Apex weapons and Redphoenix's sexy M3A1.
    • New jungle P42 camo.(2 new uniforms, PASGT and Watchcap in P42 camo, plus pilot coverals with Tanoan flag)
    • Quadbike with FFV feature, some reskinned vanilla vehicle like AH-9, Zamak, other vehicles' textures were not touched.
    • Using Apex french voice protocol.

NeoArmageddon informed us the CUP Team released updated versions of the Community Upgrade Project - Terrains addons on the BI forums.

There are three different versions available so please read the description and download just the version which best suits your need! There is no need to download all three versions!

    Quote :
    The Community Upgrade Project brings you CUP Terrains, the successor of "A3MP" and "All in ArmA - Terrain Pack (AiA TP)".
    It builds upon the work done by kju for AiA TP and brings all of BI's iconic terrains to ArmA 3 as well as all the amazing 3rd-party terrains created by the community.
    CUP Terrains maintains full backwards compatibility to A3MP and AiA TP - no need to adjust any missions or maps.

    CUP Terrains is modular, so there are different downloads available:
    • Community Upgrade Project - Terrains Complete:
        CUP Terrains, featuring everything - all the data and the BI terrains
    • Community Upgrade Project - Terrains Core:
        CUP Terrains Core, featuring only the data necessary for the terrains, but none terrain itself. Useful for those who only want to use CUP Terrains with 3rd-party terrains. But beware: some 3rd-party maps might be dependent on BI terrains.
    • CUP Terrains Maps:
        CUP Terrains Maps, featuring only the maps created by BI - needs CUP Terrains Core to work. If you only want a part of the terrains featured here, just delete the respective pbo-files of the maps you don't want. But beware: there might be interdependencies between terrains.

Duda released an updated version of his Advanced Sling Loading addon on the Armaholic forums.

    Quote :
    SP & MP Compatible. Full replacement for in-game sling loading.

    • Ropes can no longer attach automatically! You need to either get out of your helicopter or have someone on the ground pick up your cargo ropes and attach them to an object.
    • All players on board a helicopter are given a "ropes" action. This lets any player deploy, extend, shorten or release cargo ropes.
    • Once cargo ropes are deployed, any player can go to the end of the rope and pick it up.
    • Once the ropes are picked up by a player, they can be attached to pretty much every object in the game.
    • Players can drop ropes if they're carrying them
    • Players on the ground can detached ropes from an object

    • version 2.0.2:
        - Fixing issue causing some helis to damage when deploying ropes
    • version 2.0.1:
        - Fixing bug that prevented people from picking up ropes in exile

IceBreakr released an updated version of his Island Panthera for Arma 3 on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    Name Panthera itself comes from Slovenian history of "black panther" crest. Map itself is based on the real height data of Slovenia's Northwest part in Europe - named Gorenjska Region.
    "Gora" in Slovenian means mountain and Gorenjska region (represented in Panthera) certainly lives up to its name being home to most of Slovenia’s biggest mountains, including the highest of them all – Triglav (three heads) standing at an impressive 2,865 metres. The Julian Alps and the beautiful Triglav National Park are the main features of the region – offering not just outstanding scenery, but a wealth of plant and animal life and an abundance of outdoor activities. It is also home to the unforgettable lakes Bled and Bohinj. It is almost impossible to decide which one you prefer – Serene Bohinj and its majestic mountain setting or fairytale Bled with its seventeenth century church on an island overlooked by a castle perched on a rocky outcrop.

    • fixed skies & lighting that got wrecked with release of official patch 1.60+
    • lakes now visible via CUP Terrains, but still buggy with fog present
    • road and roadside object tweaks
    • dded runway and other lights to airports except Boriana (wip)
    • replaced ibr_rn.pbo addon with optimised ibr_pantheraobjects.pbo

Zenophon informed us he released an updated version of his ArmA 3 Co-op Mission Framework on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    Ladies and gentlemen, Armaholics of all ages, I am proud to present a work over a year in the making: Zenophon's ArmA 3 Co-op Mission Framework. My framework is a library of over 190 SQF functions organized into a carefully designed API that is both easy to use and extremely powerful. The functions cover everything from manipulating arrays to an extensive task system. Each one has been meticulously designed and tested to provide useful features with minimal bugs and issues. The framework is designed so that each function is a logical building block that achieves a straightforward effect. The strength of the framework is that each small part fits together neatly with others, allowing you to quickly implement your mission design intuitively.

    The framework works with any map and requires no addons. It is compatible with any mod because you choose which functions execute. There is effectively no performance impact to compile the entire framework, and every function has been diligently optimized. All 150 public functions are also carefully documented in an exacting style, and many resources are provided to help you learn to use the framework.
    The framework is created with these goals in mind:
    • Simple co-op fun for both players and mission makers
    • Bottom-up design using flexible pieces that you control
    • Truly random and dynamic missions without extra work for mission designers
    • Procedural mission design instead of manual placement using the editor
    • Eliminating large, static functions with assumptions about what you want in your mission
    • Server-oriented execution to create more efficient multiplayer missions
    • A simplification of locality and interacting with clients in multiplayer
    • A solid, powerful, and bug-free library to use as a foundation for your own code

    • New Function: Zen_Cache
    • New Function: Zen_DeleteTemplate
    • New Function: Zen_GetCachedUnits

    • Improved: Zen_FindBuildingPositions checks that its raycasts hit the building of interest
