Kommiekat released in the BI forums a new campaign inspired by events that could and may have happened by the C.I.A.
Quote Kommiekat : A proxy war is a conflict where third parties fight on the behalf of more powerful parties.
Proxy wars have also been fought alongside full-scale conflicts. It is almost impossible to have a pure proxy war, as the groups fighting for a certain nation usually have their own interests, which can diverge from those of their patron.
Typically proxy wars function best during cold wars, as they become a necessity in conducting armed conflict between at least two belligerents while continuing cold warfare.."

Arma 3 - Chernobyl Zone
ArmanIII is working on the next version of his Chernobyl Zone map and he sent us some new wip screens of the village Novoshepelychi
Arma 2 - Dutch Armed Forces /Royal Netherlands Army
-=XTRA=-Larsiano released some new info about what we can expect in the next update of the Dutch Armed Forces mod.
Quote : The basic variation of the nato gear is in, working moderately well, weighting needs tweaking (as per norm) mostly to the right arm, you can probably see it, and there will be some model updates in the future, this one will probably be rehashed as the AAF gear. even though i prefer this look, obviously once the combat shirt has been textured properly it'll look better.
The model was modified to make it look like she was wearing a compression bra, in 2030-whatever it's a uniform requirement, so while she does have breasts, they aren't big, sorry guys!
The boots are using a rough self made texture, I can't live with only one Magnum Elite Spider variation in the game (big Magnum fan).
There will be a lot of camo variations available, from CSAT hex camo (I hope) to USMC MARPAT.
RKSL-Rock informed the community about the SAAB JAS-39C Gripen he has been working on.
Quote : Created at the end of the cold war and sharing a lot of features of the Typhoon and Rafale, the Gripen is the much cheaper cousin. It may cost less but it is arguably almost as capable. Which makes it almost perfect for balancing the Resistance forces against NATO and Former Soviet-bloc or the newer Chinese aircraft.
When I first started this model it was as a distraction. I had just spend nearly 4 weeks solid developing the HUDs and MFDs of the Typhoon. I need a break from coding and testing. This was it.
Oringally I was going to use it fro the IAP Government Air Force but as we developed the IAP story line it just did not fit in. We toyed with the idea that South Africa would be leading the ASA (OPFOR) for a while and discounted that pretty quickly. Just too contentious really so its technically "homeless" for the moment.
Igitur released an updated version of his Custom formations system addon on the BI forums.
Quote : This addon was initially designed to get round AI units' unability to keep formations when walking, safe, weapons lowered. I wanted something similar to Arma 2, which I found more realistic and immersive in that regard.
Working on that, I developped the mod and added a few features to the game's formations mecanism, making the player able to define new formations at will and on the move.
It happened that the whole system worked pretty well for all combat and speed modes, allowing for a tactical use of the mod.
Fixed : units were switching their positions when one of them got killed.
Fixed : The mod was spamming the Action, Engage and GetIn menus. Using those menus should now let the unit return to its default formation and perform the action as intended.
Using the sensitive cursor along with the action key when you're halted will always let the unit leave the mod and perform the action.
Exception : you can now order one or several units to get in a vehicle with the cursor and mouse even when moving.
Zigomarvinsubmitted an updated version of his Usable cargo ramp for CH-49 Mohawk script.
Quote Zigomarvin : What pilot and copilot can do:
- set cargo ramp in 4 positions: open, sligthly open, drop position and open.
- turn on some lights or play some sounds to indicate to the crew in the back that it's time to jump.
What soldiers in the back can do:
- if the cargo ramp is in open position they can get in or get out (below 40 m and 50k m/h).
- if the cargo ramp is in drop position they can jump (above 100 m).
- they can get out to the left side (the défault action always eject you to the right side).
New cargo ramp positions: closed, slightly open, drop position, open.
Pilot and copilot can turn on lights of colours or play audio signals in the cargo compartment.
Andy_McP1 has submitted his first mission at Armaholic.com
Quote Andy_McP1 : Destroy a Radio Station and an AA Sentry, call in Air Strike on an HQ building and get to the Evac point without getting killed.
Enemy reinforcements may be mobilised at various stages of the mission, the amount will depend on how loud you are.
Decades of Developmentsubmitted the first alpha version of the Over The top mod.
Quote : Over The Top is a total conversion for Arma 2 CO, it turns Arma 2 from its modern setting to a world war one setting immersing players in the mud filled trench's of 1914 to 1918. With access to tanks, planes, armoured cars and many other objects players are sure to enjoy the mods first release.
