I am sure, and hope, most of you are aware of our Xmas caption competition we announced a few weeks back giving everybody the chance to win some nice Arma Steam games donated by Nicholas.
We have already recieved a few hundred submissions and are enjoying them all very much.

However, as we promised earlier we will be giving away some more games!
Yes, you are reading it right! We are giving away even more games than the 3 Arma packages you can win already.
Jeza has been so kind to donate three additional games for us to give away!.

These games will be given away in a way we will decide after the Xmas caption competition has closed (26 december 2013 23:59:59). We might pick some random winners or we might choose the winners specifically, it all depends on what you, the community, send us.
Now for the prizes:
  1. FarCry 3
  2. Bioshock Infinite
  3. Dishonored

So, if you think you might be bored during the holidays and feel like getting a chance to win one of our nice games make sure to post your entry in the Armaholic Xmas caption competition thread.


And remember, the above games are additional prizes next to the ones we are already giving away:
  1. Arma X: Aniversary Edition
  2. Arma 2 complete collection
  3. Arma 3 Digital Deluxe Edition


What do you have to do?
    Use one or more of the images we provide below and add some caption to it. Thats all!
    The caption could be anything, just let your fantasy flow and submit your entry in this thread.


Rules:
  • You have until 26 december 2013 23:59:59 to submit your entry.
  • Anyone can submit as many entries as he/she wants.
  • Normal forum rules apply.
  • After the competition has closed we (Armaholic staff) will choose 3 winners. Armaholic staff and Armaholic team member are excluded from entering the competition!
  • Winners are simply choosen on the caption added, if we like the added caption best you will be one of the winners.
  • We will announce the winners as soon as possible after the closing of the competition and you will recieve your Steam gift code from Nicholas.

Important! Important!
Some of you submitted edited images and that is not allowed. Except for text you should not modify the images as that makes the competition unfair.
Everyone uses the same images and you can only edit them to add text to it!

Rreznik released an updated version of his IR Strobe script on the BI forums.

    Quote rreznik :
    This is a simple IR Strobe script for Arma 3.
    I just want to say that I am very, very new to scripting (started a few weeks ago) so please be gentle..
    Now we have something to play with, just until the big boys make a proper one.

    Changelog:
    • Cleaned up script errors.
    • Fixed "Strobe sometimes gets stuck mid air when detached and deleted from player"

Gogus12 informed the community on the Armaholic forums about the French Army (1954-nowadays) project he started working on and released some new screens showing the new infantry models.

    Quote gogus12 :
    The goal of this mod is to recreate the former French army (1954-1980) with some modern forces (1980-2013) with historical accuracy.
    I also wanted to honor the men who were wasted for France during colonial wars who were already lost at the beginning (Indochine, Algeria).


You can find more information and leave your feedback in the French Army wip topic.

PlacidPaul released in the BI forums these unbalanced TVT missions.

    Quote PlacidPaul :
    These missions are inspired by the gamemode INFILTRATION from Dragon Rising. If you have not played it, it is a unbalanced objective based TvT.

Roe[31stMEU] released in the BI forums a mission playable in singleplayer and cooperative mode for up to five players, where you must use stealth to complete three tasks before extraction.

    Quote Roe[31stMEU] :
    Hey everyone. This is my first mission created for Arma 3. It is designed to be a Co-op mission with 5 slots, however I don't have a ton of experience and don't know for sure that everything works in MP as it should. I hosted it on my own PC and everything works fine though. It can also be played SP if that's your thing. ]

Se'Kara released this 11 episodes "singleplayer campaign" in our forums.

    Quote Se'Kara :
    Andros Rhodocanakis has lived on Altis all his life.
    He stayed on his homeland when so many fled.

    Now that the NATO forces are leaving, CSAT troops are moving in.
    Andros cannot stand by any longer.
    He must fight for what he believes in.

    No matter the cost.

    Take back your hometown.
    Take the fight to the invaders.
    Push them back into the sea.

    For honour.
    For Altis.
