Spirit6 informed us he released the Mission Template Stand Alone GAIA on the BI forums.
Quote : With this template you can speedup your mission making and add intelligence to the AI without scripting one word.
What you get without one word of scripting:
Automated patrols of any kind. Air patrols, footpatrols, vehicle patrols, boat patrols.
Working mortars, artillery, transportation system. Basicly any type of unit is recognized by GAIA and you dont need to do one thing.
Smart AI system that will coordinate the attacks and adjust to what ever the player is doing.
Integrated caching system.
Integrated respawn system (so you can create endless battles)
A shitload more
All of the above by simple adding a line in the init of a group without having to understand anything.
GAIA is the AI system that is used in the mod MCC. With this you can add GAIA AI system to your missions without MCC addon.
This tempLate serves 2 goals:
How to use GAIA if you have MCC and want to use the BIS editor.
Run GAIA stand alone and make missions fast. Completely independent of MCC.
This is meant for mission editors. I will answer anything gaia related but I will not teach you how to use the bis editor. So basic knowledge of the bis editor is required.
Why stand alone?
I know some wanted it for a longer time. I also wanted a showcase for people that have MCC but want to use it in the bis editor. So now you can learn how to do that. The other is to make people aware of the use of this system so you can be our next big MCC fan!
PetraCephas released an updated version of his ARMSCor Mod on the Armaholic forums.
Quote : ARMSCor is a ARMA 3 mod that include Southern African military equipment, both locally developed and license build from 1966 to 2035. This has been a labour of love for a very long time and will be for a long time to come. This is only the beginning, so make sure to check out the "WorkInProgress" folder to see what we are currently working on. We have lots more to come.
In the extras folder you will find additional factions. Where South African weapons, vehicles or aircraft is also in use by other countries, I have included skinned versions of them on request. To use these you will need to copy the *.PBO and associated *.bisign files over to the Addons folder.
In the optional folders we have PBO files that you can choose to use if you so feel. To use these you will need to copy the *.PBO and associated *.bisign file over to the Addons folder.
Currently we have the SANDF faction replacement mod. This will replace some of the NATO factions soldiers, equipment & vehicles with SANDF equivalents. This is still experimental and incomplete so use at own risk. It can be undone by simply removing it from the Addons folder again.

Gulozwood released an updated version of his Infected Script on the BI forums.
Quote : Based on the "Shaun: a Simple zombie AI" script by Bluebär posted on Armaholic few month ago,
I kept sounds from his script and the "contact" function that check if targets are visible or not.
How infected work:
when spawning he start walking at random points, 100m around his spawn position.
regurarly the infected check if there any uncover target in his line of sight.
if he detect a target he start running at him, if distance <2m he does damage, he will
lose his target if distance >100m then will return walk around his spawn point.
cleaning the mess
added "firedNear" eventhandler
infecteds will investigate gunshot sound position except in case of silenced weapons usage
Tortuosit released an updated version of his Dynamic weather script on the BI forums.
Quote : The script creates dynamic weather, is heavily configurable, has starting presets, weather trends and min/max values. Standard behaviour is that script lets weather cycle between min and max values. But you can also pin the weather at a specific level with the "constant" trend.
- Presets are respecting min/max values.
- Rain min/max is not available, as rain control is usually taken over by ArmA.
- Generally, fog levels are more likely to be low.
Weather changes / trend changes are executed every 20 minutes with no brute force, i.e. no abrupt changes and no cpu spikes (except at startup). After all, especially cloud/overcast change is slow in ArmA.
Script is for SP usage, I have no clue about MP. The script is derived from a script of forum user Meatball.
Support menu: refinements, added templates, fixed bugs

Laxemann released the LAxemann's rangetables, an Arma 3 Artillery rangetables and manual firing crash course, on the BI forums.
Quote : One of my favourite toys in ACE2 were the mortars or to be more precise, the mortar system.
The vanilla Arma 3, however, comes with no rangetables and has an artillery computer enabled by default, which cripples the art of using artillery to a "click and kill"-kinda thingy.
I therefore began to make (basic) rangetables for the A3 artillery. I fired two shots with the same elevation and measured the impact distance via script, the average distance was then taken. The distances were measured on the flat VR terrain, so keep in mind that all values won't be 100% accurate when you're above or below your target, but they're
very helpful guidelines!
Lynx75 from the GID Modding Studio, released an updated version of the NRF Units on the BI forums.
Quote : The NRF Units represent a fictional special force of the Nato Response Force.
The mod add a new Nato faction, helmets, uniforms, MX custom serie, NVG, titan, backpacks, diving camo and rebreather.
