ZiR released the first beta version of his ZiR - Headpack#1 (Africa) addon on the BI forums.
Quote : I was a little disappointed with the limited choice of non-european heads/faces. While BLUFOR has enough faces to simulate diversity, the CSAT looks like the bloody clone army from "StarWars: the bad sequels".
This pack offers you 16 new faces for african characters.
I have tried my best to cover more than just one area/nation. You will find that some faces look more central/west african while others slightly more east-african. I have attached a reference picture to the screenshots for your convinience.
While I'm not quite satisfied with the quality of the textures, I will continue to update this pack every now and then. In addition, there are two more packs in the works. A far-east-asian and a middle-east. Both will be released in a month or two ( if work doesn't come in my way )
Capttyco released an updated version of his USMC Reskins on the BI forums.
Quote : This is a simple reskin package I have made up for use over on the SimHQ server and I just thought I would share it over here. The pack includes reskins in both desert and woodland marpat as well as a reskin for the Marshall, which I have renamed the MPC-25 Havoc. I have included default loadouts balanced for a good mix of realism and gameplay. Time permitting I will be updating this pack with new classes and units.
S@ndBob informed us he released an updated version of his Gulf Of Aqaba Map on the BI forums.
Quote : This project refers to a landscape east of the Sinai Peninsula.
It is a so-called quadrilateral region (Israel, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia) with a real-Terrain on the Gulf of Aqaba with the cities of Aqaba (jord.), Eilat, Eilot (isra.) and Taba (egyp.).
The Real-terrain is 20.48 x 20.48 km = ~ 420 km2.
A huge satellite image (pixels nearly 500 million) I used as a template where what belongs to roads, buildings, etc..
Thanks to ArcGIS and USGS (NASA Earth Data).
The map is still expandable. In the North Eastern mountain roads and camps can be expanded. This will happen in a later update.
In 2020 Egyptian and Palestinian radical Islamic terrorist organizations have toppled the Egyptian government and occupy large parts of Jordan and also operate in Israel. Israel and Jordan fight (as it was in 1970) side by side against terrorism.
The story leans heavily on the historical background from 1970, with the terrorist PLO and its offshoot, the Jordanian government ousted in part, threatened and terrorized. Without the flow of arms from the U.S. and the military support of Israel, Jordan probably would lost the war against the PLO and Syria.

Cool=Azroul13 sent us the updated version 22.214.171.124 (yes, same versionnumber as before) of the Urban Patrol Scriptwhich he also released on the BI forums.
The UPSMON script was originally created by Monsada for Arma 2, improved by Rafalsky, Nordin and Shay_Gman and ported to Arma 3 by Ollem. Cool=Azroul13 is now working on further improving its usage in Arma 3.
Quote Cool=Azroul13 : This is a personal project to enhance IA in combat and making easier mission edition. I have used the version 2.0.3 of Urban Patrol Script de Kronzky. I have to congratulate Kromzky for his script UPS.sqf that has inspired me for doing UPSMON.
Cunico released an updated beta version of his Spec 4 Vests addon on the BI forums.
Quote : We reached 50 Supporters in 24hrs for MakeArmaNotWar!! Awesome! Well here is my gift to you.
Don't expect a lot of stuff with the pack but just some good quality vests and random items. I made this in about a month on and off because of work. I plan on making more vests when I have time, but for now this pack consists of:
LBT6094A in AOR 1,2, Coyote, and OD
PVS 14's,GPNVG 18, and I have the models done just needs texturing
Backpacks, assault packs etc.
Variety of Vest, with different gear on each
Custom items, glasses, cigs, hand wamers lol etc.
Fixed - Vest not acting as Armor, now takes 3-4 shots before dying.
