Chris_Acrobat released in our forums a re-imagine of the Arma 2 mission "Detector", a deathmatch with a distance viewer to your closest enemy.

    Quote Chris_Acrobat :
    Prepare for a fast-paced mission with up to 24 players and a lot of panic.
    In this mission you will spawn at a randomized position, with a randomized weapon (even weapons from loaded mods!) with only one or two magazines. So make every shot count!

    For variation, you can select from three different spawn types:
      * Old school - Spawn on ground, nothing special.
      * With parachute - Spawn in the air and choose where you want to fight.
      * With thunder - Madness and a lot of fun.

    This mission take place during the night, so avoid streetlights if you do not want to be seen. But be aware: there is a small chance to spawn with night vision goggles, so your clever hiding spot may not be as clever as you think.

The Red Hammer Studios released a small fix for the recently released RHS: Escalation mod on the BI forums.
You can download RHS: Armed Forces Of The Russian Federation and RHS: United States Armed Forces seperatly or you can just go for the all in one package RHS: Escalation.

This small fix only changes the bisign and bikey files, so if you already downloaded either of the RHS mods just download the hotfix and replace the older files with the one from the hotfix.

    Quote :
    The Red Hammer Studios team is very proud to announce our first major release for Arma 3 - RHS: Escalation!

    Under this name we present two totally standalone mods: Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and United States Armed Forces (if you download them separately and play with both enabled, you are effectively playing Escalation).

    This is all just a tiny preview of what is to come from our side, with many nice things and improvements planned for the future.

    • Countless new vehicles: tanks, cars, IFVs and APCs for both sides to use, as well as atmospheric objects like radars.
    • Completely new soldier models and dozens of gear objects make for over 700 possible unit customization possibilities. Use the supplied virtual ammo crates to quickly make your own custom setups.
    • New weapons and attachments. Have everything at your disposal to take on your enemy.
    • Realism enhancements: full PhysX support and realistic configurations, complex Fire Control Systems for applicable vehicles. New user interface items representing control and awareness systems of vehicles to increase atmosphere and gameplay dynamics. Also our constantly expanding and improved decal system has even migrated to the US side.
    • Fully ZEUS compatible.
    • Fully ALiVE compatible. Many thanks goes towards ALiVE team making sure RHS Evolution can be enjoyed using ALiVE Framework!
    • - Fully Task Force Radio compatible. Many thanks to the developers of TFA and their effort making sure everything was in place for you to enjoy it right out of the box! TFA will even contain new radios made in the style of our units!
    • Future-proof: sling-loading will work once they make their way to the stable branch. If you are playing on development branch you should have these features enabled already! FFV will come later as releasing it now would cause problems for those of you playing on the stable branch.
    • Many many more...

    • Fixes the erroneous server key authentication that prevented users from joining protected servers.

[OFCRA]Cirav informed us he and [301]Hubabobube are working on a new island for Arma 3 called "Map Wake Island" and sent us some first wip screens showing their work.

    Quote :
    Wake Island is a coral atoll just north of the Marshall Islands. It is an unorganized, unincorporated territory of the United States, administered by the Office of Insular Affairs, U.S. Department of the Interior. There are about 150 people living on its 2.85 square miles. Access to the island is restricted, and all activities on the island are managed by the United States Air Force. There is also a missile facility operated by the United States Army. The largest island, Wake Island, is the center of activity on the atoll and is the location of Wake Island Airfield, which has a 3 000 m runway.

UK_Apollo released his 3CB BAF Vehicles addon on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    For the first release within this modset we have two British Lynx Wildcat helicopter re-skins. Using the ArmA 3 AAF Hellcat model, we have created accurate replica's of a real Royal Navy transport Wildcat and a British Army AH1 CAS bird.

    The AgustaWestland AW159 Lynx Wildcat is an improved version of the Westland Super Lynx military helicopter.
    The AW159 will serve in the battlefield utility, search and rescue and anti-surface warfare roles.
    The helicopter has been ordered for the Royal Navy (28) and British Army (34).
    Entry into service with front-line units: January 2015
    Stationed: RNAS Yeovilton

    In game, the AAF Hellcat is quite a close replica of the real Wildcat. A notable difference is the replacement of wheels with skids.
    This mod re-skins the Hellcat accurately in the colours and markings of real-life Lynx Wildcats currently serving with British Armed Forces:
    • Royal Navy AW-159 Lynx Wildcat HMA Mk2, S/N ZZ396 (cn 481)
    • Registered Westlands, Yeovil, 4th Jan 2013
      Transport version in grey camo
    • British Army AW-159 Lynx Wildcat AH1, S/N ZZ400 (cn 462)
    • First Flight 12th Nov 2009
      Armed version (mini gun & rockets) in green camo

    Adds a British Royal Navy helicopter pilot with accurate Coveralls and Helmet, re-textures of the standard ArmA 3 models.

Cool=Azroul13 sent us the updated version of the Urban Patrol Script on the BI forums.
The UPSMON script was originally created by Monsada for Arma 2, improved by Rafalsky, Nordin and Shay_Gman and ported to Arma 3 by Ollem. Cool=Azroul13 is now working on further improving its usage in Arma 3.

    Quote Cool=Azroul13 :
    This is a personal project to enhance IA in combat and making easier mission edition. I have used the version 2.0.3 of Urban Patrol Script de Kronzky. I have to congratulate Kromzky for his script UPS.sqf that has inspired me for doing UPSMON.

    • Added:
        - New parameter "DORELAX", it must be use with civilian group.
        - New parameter "NOARTILLERY", the group will not call artillery support.
        - AI can mount static if there are a gunner and assistant in the group.
        - AI can rearm themself (only for infantry), check the file UPSMON_Init to activate it.
        - Equipment of each units in the group is saved for Template, respawn and clone module.
    • Corrected:
        - If multiple groups are linked to the marker and only one of them has the "SHOWMARKER",
        then the marker will be visible
        - Group with Random parameter will not occupy building outside the marker area
        - "TRACK" parameter is re-added.
        - Corrections in the combat behaviour
        - Correction of the vehicle respawn

Lazarus1177 has submitted this singleplayer mission where you have to lead a CSAT Special Operations team to hit 3 sites on the Island of Stratis.

    Quote Lazarus1177 :
    Here's one for the Bad guys. Play as a CSAT SF team and complete the 3 assigned objectives. Multiple paths are possible for objective completion. I won't give away too much of the story,just that the events described in this scenario occur immediately before the campaign episode "Survive".
