Arma 3 - LowLand Defense Force
Blackout posted a few new screens showing the adjusted colors of the Belgian Jigsaw pattern on DPM.
Toadie2k informed the community on the BI forums about the new project he is working on.
Quote toadie2k : This is a bit of a two-part work in progress thread, covering sort of related but independent weapon packs. All of it is brought together by the unifying theme that I'm doing all fresh character animation of all of it,because that's what I do.
I want to, while I'm here, give props to Kiory for cracking the 3dsmax-to-oxygen/RTM pipeline for animation. I'd been working fruitlessly on solving it for months, and for him to have such a simple solution... practically inspired.
It took us some time to review all submissions but today the time has come to announce all the winners for the Armaholic Xmas caption competition.
We will contact all people who have won and those people have 1 week (until january 5th 23:59:59) to claim their prize.
Any prize which is not claimed after that time will be given away at a random person who also took part in the contest and did not win yet! So, make sure to check your PM's later today!
Here are the winners of the prizes donated by Nicholas:
NeoArmageddon released his Revive script on the BI forums.
Quote NeoArmageddon : This script adds revive functionality to your A3-mission or mod.
Instead of dying a unit will become unconscious (with ragdolling). Other players are able to revive a unconscious player.
While unconscious a player is able to recover (triggering W or shift+W) and roll over. The player is then able to slowly crawl and empty his loaded magazine (without scope and reloading).
This script was originally developed for co08 Escape Altis from Vormulac but I would also share it with everyone else.
OHallysubmitted his OHally's Boats addon which adds packable and deployable CRRC Assault Boats to your Arma 3.
Quote OHally : OHally's boats brought the ability to pack and deploy CRRCs to AMRA 2 in script form. Now meet the next level in evolution (a.k.a extreme boredom and tired of looking at CAF stuff for today).
Now the boats are in addon format!
Works with AI Section members, they can disassemble, pick up and assemble.
Moerderhoschi released a new cooperative mission in the BI forums.
Quote Moerderhoschi : Remake of the original mission by DirtyHarry in ArmA II.
Insurgent have entrenched in a storage section and threaten with blasting of an atom bomb. We have none confirmation whether she is real or not. go in clear the aerea and defuse the bomb.
Zealot111 informed us he released an updated version of his Helicopter fastrope script on the BI forums.
The download includes an example mission to learn how you can add this to your own mission(s).
Quote zealot111 : This Helicopter fastroping script allows players to toss ropes from helicopter and fastrope to the ground using these ropes. Ropes are 50m long (A3 has ropes only this length) so you can fastrope from that height.
Helicopter must maintain speed under 5km/h while fastroping.
W4lkn released version 2.0 of the Mirage F1 on the BI forums.
Quote W4lkn : As promised, the second version of the Mirage F1 package is available with many new features. Thus, planes of sahranian (fictitious army of ArmA: Armed Assault) and chernarussian armies were added. New missiles and configurations are also now available. My imagination has also allowed me to create an aircraft of the 4477th Test and Evaluation Squadron.
This pack may well be in its final version unless that new ideas arise.
This package requires the game Arma 2, its standalone expansion, Operation Arrowhead, and Community Base addons.
A great thanks to renton for its model of Mirage F1 as well as Yac and Project RACS for their fighter pilot.
Added: 3 sahranians Mirage F1 (Air-air, air-ground and air-ship)
Added: 2 chernarussians Mirage F1 (Air-air and air-ground)
Added: 2 agressors' Mirage F1 (Blue et desert)
Added: 2 news takistanis Mirage F1 (Air-ground and air-ship)
