S@ndBob informed us he released an updated version of his [MIS] Jordanian Royal Army on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    The Royal Jordanian Army is part of the Jordanian Armed Forces (JAF). It draws its origins from units, such as the Arab Legion, formed in the British Mandate of Transjordan in the 1920s. It has seen combat against Israel in 1948, 1956, 1967, and 1973. The Army also fought the Syrians and the PLO during Black September in 1970.

    In 1996 the Jordanian Army finally established a Special Operations Command, the brain-child of Abdullah then a serving Army officer. It is tasked to deal with a possible Palestinian uprising and the growth of Islamic terrorism.

    The present day Jordanian Army is equipped with mainly Western (US and British) supplied weapons.

    Changelog:
    • changed jordanian uniform texture into desert camouflage
    • changed some weapons / M16 and IGLA and METIS
    • changed SpecOps Officer
    • added SpecOps MG man

SavageCDN informed us LordJarhead released the first public version of his JSRS3: DragonFyre soundmod for Arma 3 on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    As most already knew, I've been working for like 6 months now on a new project, called DragonFyre. With the social, mental, powerful help of John, Yokhanan, I was building a new soundmod, based on JSRS2.2. As to given updates with the new ArmA3 Helicopter Update, I had to focus on the Helis lately to fix the given issues, port over the new changes to DragonFyre and now I'm up to date with this mod. It is a 100% working, complete overhaul of JSRS, updated scripts allow us to archive even new and more advanced effects, thanks to LAxemann at this point.
    Let me please point out that this mod is NOT made to sound "authentic" or realistic! Its not a super duper hyper realistic sound mod. Its
    my personal opinion and it was a nice project to create. So either you like it... or you just get the f*ck outa here!

    Also:
    Do not mix this soundmod with others! This mod is made to run by its own. Also L_ES will disable itself automatically
    when JSRS DragonFyre is applied as those features are integrated anyways.

    The mod is NOT Final!
    There are bugs and issues still left open and I'll fix those later. Its an RC Release, so keep that in mind before you leave a nasty mean comment because YOU are unsatisfied!

    Features:
    • 12.500+ new sound files!
    • New scripts allowing us to have distance firefights
    • New scripts allowing us to have distance explosions - Muffled thuds finally
    • Reflections - Sound get reflected from Buildings and Trees
    • New SD weapon effects - SD weapons are not as quiet as hollywood makes you think
    • New randomly generated Urban and Forest Reflections
    • New DLC Helicopters covered - Of course
    • Tweaked movement and gear noises - Tiny little tweaks and details, not to loud, not to quiet
    • Hundreds of volume tweaks - Best tweaked JSRS version ever optimized for Stereo and 5.1 - ITS LOUD GUYS!
    • Handheld and most vehicle weapons use sounds from gigantic pools, making each shooter sound different
    • Over 15.000 new sound effects to simulate the best battle sound experience ever heard in ArmA - Or any other video game as well?
    • All sounds reworked! ZERO sounds from JSRS2.1 are left the way they were.
    • Explosions! The danger of explosions is reproduced through new scripts, each explosion sound different than the next.
    • Close explosion-sounds are totally randomly generated on the fly.
    • Real-life recordings with the best given quality used to create perfect sounding gameplay
    • Full support of JSRS2.2 sound effects. If you have Mod weapons using JSRS sounds or entries, you can just switch to DFyre without a CFG change

Silola informed us he released a new video showing an experiment he is working on using his X-Cam prototype map.
You can run the script experiment only if you have the X-Cam prototype map installed, including all required addons. The files are available below!

    Quote :
    I have prepared a small X-Cam experiment.
    The basic idea is to extract certain parts of the prototype map and then import all the objects as a script file on the VR map.

    The individual steps of the experiment are as follows:
    • On the prototype map I collect various areas and detect all objects in these areas. Each object record is then stored as a single Prefab.
    • Then I go to the VR map and start a new project there. In the next step I read each Prefabs back and save them in the new project.
    • Finally, I'll create a script file from the whole project, which then can be used by everyone on the VR map.
    • The script file contains data from approximately 26,500 objects that are generated either with or without markers.

    Things that do not work in this experiment:
    - Roads can not be detected.
    - Objects have no Annimation (trees do not move, gates will not open).
    - The individual scaling value of the objects can not be seen (Scaling is allways 1)
    - Some objects have a wrong position (height) because the right terrain height model is not available.

    For this experiment, I have used the "light" version of the prototype map.
    To reproduce all the steps I've created a video which you can view below.


You can find more information and leave your feedback in the "X-Cam" and "DAC" Project WIP topic.

Reyhard released version 1.3 of his RDS Tank Pack on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    New tanks comes with additional configs to make it possible to use them with the CAF Aggressors and Kaelis South Zagorian Army Mod. Gearbox & psyhX thing need a lot of tweaking (same as T34 sight) but I thought it's already ready to be played with so enjoy!

    Things that are worth seeing are new sights and armour code. I spent actually some time making ZSU upper plate movable when gun is set at high angle. I'm planning making to add some features to it so game play should slightly resemble SAM simulator. Of course, psyhX is on board

    Changelog:
    • tweaked t72b & ZSU physx
    • added compatibility with RHS damage system
    • added few muzzle flashes here & there (main cannons still lacks it)
    • some other small tweaks here & there
