Drongo69 released an updated version of the Middle East Irregulars on the BI forums.
Quote Drongo69 : This addon attempts to simulate an "Al Qaida" type force in Arma 3. None of the assets used have been made be me, I only did the config and adapted the randomization script.
Their uniform, headwear, vest and pack are randomized, so they provide a lot of variety. They are equipped with Russian weaponry from massi's weapon pack. There is also another PBO which offers these units mounted in a range of Arma 3 and All In Arma vehicles and static weapons.
All of the assets referenced belong to their respective authors, this addon only accesses it at the config/script level.
Removed all protective vests and switched to bandoliers (as default)
Allowed all units to be optionally equipped with tac-vests by placing a logic named driVests
Fixed the incorrect faction side of the civilians (thanks ARJay)

Arma 3 - Favslev 3.0
Muggi is working on the Arma 3 version of his famous Favslev and posted some wip screens on the Armaholic forums.
Quote Muggi : Im replacing all textures from scratch, higher resolutions and messing with them a bit in photoshop to make it look nicer.
Also, adding a beach on the entire east side of the map. Inspired from our huge danish.... west-side shoreline... But it fitted more on the east side of Favslev.
Now for some screenshots, and Im happy with it so far. It looks really great in A3, but please remember theres still alot to do. Im gonna release this if Im happy with the outcome when Im done. This is a huge job for me, especially when considering im not even playing/using this game anymore!
Bigpickle released a new video in which you can hear the new Flyby script in action which he has added to his Speed Of Sound soundmod.
Quote Bigpickle : New Flyby Script in Action, plane enthusiasts are gonna love this and I can add all planes to this and make them all sound like their real life counterparts.
Any aircraft modders who want their aircraft included in the script, pm me a BIS Forums and I'll add them and create the flyby audio for them.

SAN informed us he released a new cooperative mission in the BI forums.
Quote SAN : Europe 1945. In Horgau, a municipality with 600 inhabitants 17 km west of Augsburg, locals do not even know what's going on in the forest. At the station appear more frequently gray cars all with an "OT" on the license plate. "OT" stands for Organisation Todt - the building team which is assumed to the Minister of Armaments and built the Atlantic Wall in Normandy and in Peenemunde the launchers for the V2 rocket. The order in Horgau is secret and people ask: "What is out there in the woods?
Your order is to scour the target area and clear it.
Dwringersubmitted his ASINC scriot.
This is a simple, RPG-like interactive text conversation system for NPC's (single player).
Quote dwringer : This is a simple console-RPG style conversation system (similar to dialogue seen in games like Final Fantasy VI or Knights of the Old Republic).
I have been putting this together over the last few days, and have gotten to a point where my desire to add features outweighs my desire to debug/troubleshoot. So, I am releasing what I have as of now in case others may be interested in using it to make missions, or even just to play around with how to make custom dialogs and onscreen resources. I am a complete novice when it comes to those topics, so it is likely some may find serious inadequacies in my code. Nevertheless, it seems to work pretty smoothly now, and I think I've worked out the major performance/initialization hiccups.
This is a purely text-based interactive conversation system, completely independent of the system built into the game.
In interactive mode, the player can be presented with up to three responses, each of which can lead to a new conversation state for the unit (or unit class, represented by a Game Logic).
The responses can also have associated actions, which are just chunks of code that will be compiled and executed at the time of selection (thus, forks in the mission flow can be set up, tasks can be given, etc.).
The system can also work passively, where NPC's provide non-interactive dialog for a specified number of seconds before the frame disappears. This is mainly for visual consistency, as the game currently allows this type of scripting without any real complications anyway.
I have included a demo mission, which for simplicity's sake doesn't quite illustrate the full potential of the system. However, it is a bare minimum display of all the different functions involved.
Quote austin(medic) : This script was mainly created to try and make it easier to use animations that BIS_fnc_AmbientAnim did not cover. It contains all of the animations that I could get to work on both the player and the AI.
Quote cobra4v320 : This is an updated version of the defuse the bomb script from ARMA 2 by Igneous01.
Code is a randomly generated array of numbers, has a custom gui for the keypad, # is to enter the code, and * is to clear the display.
