Quote : Updated MV22 flight model and added door gun models.
A good fastrope and/or vehicle towing addon is strongly recommended with this addon. Mission makers should consider something like Norrin's fastrope addon: MP Compatible Fast Rope Addon.
ParaMedic released an updated version of his YO!NK Better Opfor FIA addon on the BI forums.
Quote : I made this mod mostly for myself and thought sharing it with the community couldn't hurt.
You can use and change this mod as you like, just give me credit for my work. I didn't texture or model anything I just remixed units and gear from BIS.
It isn't really much, but I just felt the FIA in ArmA 3 Vanilla:
- is on the wrong side.
- feels to much like a regular army.
- needed something like a helicopter to use here and there.
I tried to make the OPFOR FIA in this mod a bit more mixed in terms of weapon use, gave them a bit less power in some areas and a bit more possibilities in other areas. Onto that I made some CSAT Special Forces (Takavar) to fight with the FIA, so I don't have to change Faction side in MCC and Zeus.
- Took out some uniforms that couldn't be correctly displayed on ded servers, diversity will have to wait till I get it right otherwise.
Arma3goodCPUlowFPS released 2 more Large Terrain Test addons on the BI forums.
Quote : These are different sizes of a terrain for testing of how arma 3 can handle big terrains.
I wont make big changes on the terrains I upload, I do only resizes. I wont place objects or creating new textures. My resized version of the terrains are not recommended for playing since there are no objects nor detail which makes it pretty boring for playing.
The resized terrains are good for:
- testing the arma 3 engine
- testing how arma 3 can handle big terrains
- testing how arma 3 handle many objects (placing via zeus)
- air combat
- testing own addons like new vehicles, weapons etc
This also answer the question most people have: that you can have huge terrains (500km x 500km and even bigger) in arma 3.
My current test result:
204km x 204km works currently like a charm, the textures arent that good quality like the altis/stratis one, but it isnt THAT bad. (im not finished with testing since i did this size after the 600km x 600km, maybe the results will change after testing done)
600km x 600kmworks, but first you will notice the low quality textures (idk if its possible to have better quality) and some bugs, for example: if you walk and drive, you will notice that you are pushed to left and right. another bug is that on some places, the texture appear in OK quality and if you go/drive few meters, then ultra low texture quality appear and if you go back, the OK quality texture appear again.
409km x 409km works almost like the 600km x 600km size, but the bugs are a little bit less noticable, for example: you will be pushed to left and right like on the 600km size but not THAT hard, its a bit less now. textures are also a little bit better quality but there is still the texture bug where the low res texture suddenly appear on some places.
122km x 122km works like a charm but i knew that before i resized it, because some times ago i ported the take on helicopters south east asia terrain to arma 3 which is 120km x 120km and it worked there already like a charm. on 122km x 122km you have no bugs, no shaking issue, high quality texture like on stratis and altis, no pushing left to right bug and yeah, its a awesome size which works like a charm
2800km x 2800km works very bad (but it works), the texture is ULTRA LOW quality, it feels you have a 800 ping (and that even in SP/Editor), you can not look around properly without feeling you have 800 ping, if you walk, you stuck almost every meter and if you walk forward, you walk automatically to left or right direction, your weapon is shaking heavy in all direction. this size works but it is not enjoyable.
The terrains I will upload are not made by me, I have permission from "TeamProSkill" for using his terrain, resizing it and uploading it. Thanks to him.

Slatts released an updated version of his U.N Peacekeeping Gear addon on the BI forums.
Quote : U.N Peacekeeping Gear Version 1 contains 3 pieces of soldier equipment in U.N Blue. A plate carrier, helmet and beret.
Originally made as part of the Irish Armed Forces mod. I decided to release this separate to allow mission and addon makers quickly and easily replicate U.N peacekeeping forces for their nation of choice.
Austin(medic) released his Hex to A3 calculator on the BI forums.
Quote : Tired of playing guess the value when it comes to colors in arma? With this little tool you can use a RGB value (0-255) and convert it into something arma can use. It also shows you what color (should) come out in game as well (which is the main point). Simply put in values then click the calculate button.
Requires Microsoft .NET 4.5 framework so it won't work on PC's still using windows XP (if for some reason a windows 7 user still doesn't have the framework running setup.exe will download it and install for you).
Owesome has submitted a team vs. team based PvP mission.
Quote Owesome : The NATO force have to hunt down the General. The General spawns on a random spot on the map. Every 120 seconds an aerial marker will show the current position of the General.
The NATO has a wide range of vehicles and firearms. The Ofor (General side and his bodyguards) start with a vehicle and standard gear. There are a few spots on the map where the Opfor can improve their gear.
