alarm9k has submitted an updated version of his Smarter tanks script.

    Quote alarm9k :
    Have you ever been irritated by the far from optimal AI controlling the tank and being destroyed by one RPG shot in the rear? Only because it didn't bother to rotate the hull to that AT soldier? Or because it was firing at a harmless rifleman instead of taking care of enemy APC? Well, this script is for you.

    'Smart' behaviour activates if the vehicle has a driver, the driver's combat mode is either STEALTH, AWARE or COMBAT and the vehicle is either in Ready or Moving state. The script makes the vehicle to check its known targets every 5 seconds in 2000 meters radius, assess the treat and:
    • Fire at the most dangerous target it range.
    • If the vehicle is a tracked vehicle (tank, tracked APC etc) then rotate the hull to face the most dangerous target.
    • If the threat is too high (for example an AT soldier at a close range) and the vehicle was moving then stop immediately and 1&2 (fire and rotate). If immediate threat is eliminated then proceed with previous move order.
    • Fixed: doesn't require human player in faction any more for the script to work.

Tpw released an updated version of his TPW MODS on the BI forums.
TPW MODS consists of a number of independently configurable mods.
With this update it is important that you update the tpw_mods.hpp.

    Quote tpw :
    In the months since Arma 3 alpha was released I wrote a number of mods which did different things, but all of which had a common goal of increasing the immersion and realism of the single player experience in Arma 3. As the number of mods and their complexity increased, I found it increasingly difficult to keep track of feedback on multiple threads and maintain them all separately, so I took the decision to bundle them all into one addon, imaginatively titled TPW MODS.

    This update continues with a few more performance optimisations, bug fixes, and 2 new features:

    Those of you who follow this thread will know that the inimitable Das Attorney has helped to revive the suppression shell concept for TPW EBS, with a new shell that overcomes nearly all of the shortcomings of my previous implementation. This means that suppression is now determined using the optimised low level collision routines of the Arma engine rather than through per frame bullet centric scripting. I have reimplemented this into EBS so that users may chose between the bullet centric (default) or Das's shell based suppression. He is continuing to refine the concept and I will introduce any changes. In the mean time, any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Secondly, I have introduced a heartrate (BPM) monitor into the health indicator of TPW HUD. A player's BPM will increase in response to both fatigue, and injury. The player will start with a resting BPM of 55-65. This will rise up to 100+ once audible puffing breathing kicks in. A BPM of 180+ corresponds to the players being forced to slow down from fatigue. BPM will max out at 4x the resting BPM. BPM will basically give a player some rough feedback on their fatigue status and ability to move quickly if required. If your BPM is 170 it's probably best not to chance a dash across 100m of open ground under fire.

    • [ANIM SPEED] Reduced head bobbing for lowered rifle walk.
    • [FOG 1.22, HOUSELIGHTS 1.09, HUD 1.37, LOS 1.12] Fixed errors related to initialising of sun angle checking.
    • [FALL 1.36] Fixed noises for turning prone.

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.

    • (Addon version) Persistent info display (toggable, see 0-8-1-1), more info.
