Quote : Prague, Czech Republic, Thursday April 10th 2014
Bohemia Interactive today released the free Arma 3 Zeus DLC for Arma 3™.
Announced two months ago, Arma 3 Zeus lets people assume the role of Game Master and curate the multiplayer experience of other players.
As a Game Master, you can view the battlefield from bird’s-eye perspective, and create, manipulate or expand a multiplayer scenario in real-time. An easy-to-use editor enables you to spawn units, set objectives, change the weather conditions, start music, and much more. The result is incredibly dynamic online combat - in which players have to rely on their ability to improvise and adapt.
Assume the role of Game Master and curate the experience of other Arma 3 players. Wielding an intuitive real-time editor, you can manipulate or expand multiplayer scenarios on-the-fly, and create a surprising flow of challenges for the soldiers on the ground.
Enroll As Players
Form a squad, head into battle, and engage in truly dynamic combat. As one of Zeus' subjects, you need to react to varied objectives, and adapt to unscripted events on a constantly-evolving battlefield. Improvisation is your key to success.
Play Arma 3 Zeus across its distinctive 'Game Master' game type scenarios, where you start out with a blank canvas. Or visit familiar modes like 'Coop', 'Team Death Match', and 'Sector Control' in a completely new way. Zeus multiplayer also works with custom player-created scenarios
The Arma 3 Zeus DLC has been added automatically to the Steam Library of all owners of Arma 3.
To celebrate its release, the Arma 3 development team will be hosting an official Arma 3 Zeus Launch Party Livestream this Saturday, April 12th. Starting at 17:00 UTC, they will present an hour-long Zeus MP session in which the developers take on the role of Game Master, while various members from the Arma community will fight as soldiers on the ground. The session will be streamed live from Bohemia Interactive’s HQ in Prague onto Arma 3’s Twitch.tv channel.

You activate the GPS via small addaction and the gps shows you the vehicles with gps inside on the map after a 30 seconds delay. Also you will hear a small beep and see the GPS Icon.
Jacmac released his 1st BBR EZ Markers addon on the BI forums.
Quote : EZ Markers is a mod that generates map markers and optional 'signs'. The intent is to provide easier access to map markers as well as utilizing a large number of markers generated to MIL-STD 2525C standards (not all of them, just the relevant symbols that would be typical in ARMA).
The mod is currently functional, however much of the symbology has not been implemented yet. Some of the interface needs tweaking for easier use.
I can use any feedback on how to improve the functionality. The mod is mostly self explaintory, but check the video for a quick demo.
Keys are provided, but I have not checked their validity, please let me know if the signing is incorrect.
The mod is Client/Server, the Server executes the creation of markers and send commands for the clients to create signs. Most of the execution is client based.
Network traffic is minimal.
I need opinions on whether limits should be placed on players.
Aplion informed us he released the HAFM UAZ Cars which he ported from Arma 2, on the BI forums.
Quote : Another import from Arma 2, the OPFOR UAZ's.
This addon uses mostly default textures
- Default and some custom ArmA 3 weapons
- Default ArmA 3 Units (crew)
- Default ArmA 3 sounds
- PhysX applied
Grimes [3rd ID] released an updated version of his Building Occupation Script on the BI forums.
Quote : This script, Grimes' Building Occupation Script, provides the mission maker an extremely simple way to occupy a set of buildings within a radius with a random or fixed amount of AI (of any faction, including civilian), both chosen by the maker and limited by the number of official position inside the building.
The spawned AI will fight back as a group, and can be easily manipulated further by adding lines in the right spot in this script.
This script can be utilized in many ways, examples including but not limited to:
- Filler - Have a mission where a squad goes from A to C and you want non-mission critical AI at B? Use this script!
- Random Objective - Want to have 3 AI at C that could be ANYWHERE between dozens, hundreds of buildings? Use this script!
- Boredom Fixer - Want a quick CQB practice? Use this script!
Major changes that require the attention of mission makers!
Added: Param to limit the number of groups.
Added: Now supports Civilians. Reminder: This script isn't necessarily for enemies only!
Added: Param providing the option for the script to run through buildings in order of distance or at random.
Fixed: Possible non-critical errors when not in debug mode.
Changed: Changed markers for spawned units from Objective to Dot for sake of space.
Dhumpus has submitted this singleplayer mission where You are a small group of FIA soldiers attacking a much larger CSAT radarstation.
Quote Dhumpus : You are acting as a guerilla force assaulting a CSAT radarstaion code named Bravo-2. You will be dropped off via a civilian diesel then you will take out the MRAP defenses and assault the rest of the base.
