SpectreRSG informed us he released another hotfixed version of his TFA - Naval Special Warfare Gear addon on the BI forums.

    Quote SpectreRSG :
    So I had a small bit of free time this week. I'm going to push out an update below. Regardless, I just checked the fatigue, armor values on current BI stuff and mine.. My armor values are still higher than BI and all my mass values are lower than BIS. Unless I'm misunderstanding everything my stuff is still stronger and lighter than vanilla stuff - so fatigue and armor should be fine. But I made tiny tweaks here and there. Stuff may not even be noticeable.

    Anyways, this is going to be a final update for a while or until I have a want to add something or have to fix something. I truly hope people enjoy this mod and continue to use this. This will also be on Steam Workshop shortly. This is v3.90 and includes the following, but note that for the new camos, I will not be tweaking much as I didnt even want to include them or put time into them as other modders have done the stuff to hell already, if someone wants to open it up and make a tweak for me, I'm open to that however.

    • Fixed _c_ related popup editor message

Megahurt has submitted a hotfix for this cooperative mission where a Rapid Deployment FOB is tasked to destroy and capture ISIS assets.

    Quote Megahurt :
    Players man a Rapid Deployment FOB in Takistan against ISIS. Perform airstrikes, hostage rescues, gather intel, assassinate ISIS leaders and sieze Isis payroll assets in a fast moving continuing operation that evolves as your team performs tasks successfully in order to move on to the next objective. Standard insurgency goals that include clearing roads of IEDs and insurgent held towns, destroying ammo cashes and arresting or killing suicide bombers also apply.

    • Fixed one hostage wasn't scripted and remained undamagable and unretrievable

Brainslush released version 0.8 of his =TSS= NameTag addon on the BI forums.

    Quote brainslush :
    As you may know in elite mode of Arma3 no names of units or player are displayed. This is of course very much appreciated if you care about realism. But since Arma doesn't features customizable faces or physique, distinguishing between two different soldiers becomes extremely difficult. Not all players like to see the names all the time or just in a certain way, so I created this addon to give every player the possibility to adjust the addon, to meet his expectations.
    Furthermore I implemented (untested so far) the possibility for the missionmaker to turn off the addon or overwrite partly the usersided config to match equal criteria for TvT or other gamemods.

    • Added GUI for configuration
    • Added CBA-Keybinding system
    • userconfig has become obselete for the clients
    • some code tweaking
    • rewrote some of the code

Syncie released his DEVGRU Hangar Template on the Armaholic forums.

    Quote :
    For some missions I am creating I have build a DEVGRU Hangar. Just to have something where we can start from.
    I like to share it because maybe others like to use it too.

    I did not use a hangar that's already on the map but used the hangar object from the editor. So you can place it where you want on Altis or in any other map you like.

    Does it have the Lock & Load table from the movie Lone Survivor? Ofcourse it has! You can setup or load your gear on it. It has VAS 2.6 and ASOR Gear Selector.
