SickSith has submitted a mission playable in singleplayer and cooperative modes, where you, the SAS, will ship out with the 75th Rangers and assault the town of Zelenorgsk were Vostok has set up a FOB.

    Quote SickSith :
    After the Russian invasion of Chernarus, the ChzdK army has asked for the assistance from NATO to provide support and security. In response, NATO sent out a Ranger platoon and several British SAS, who has set up base the old airfield at Balota. After several operations command realized that the only way to get any headway in this conflict is to compromise the tactical ability of the enemy. Thus they planned Operation Jungle Phantom.

Goodson released his A2 Island Lighting Fixes addon on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    Currently A3MP uses Stratis lighting for all its maps. This gives all A2 maps a Mediterranean feel which some may not prefer. Therefore, I decided to create a mod that uses the original Arma 2 config/lighting values to give these maps back their classic look.

    Some people may prefer the Arma 2 style lighting, and others may not. This mod was made purely to suit some people's personal tastes - I hope you enjoy it.

    • All A3MP maps now use classic Arma 2 lighting values.
    • All A3MP maps now use the correct skybox and horizon textures (instead of the default Stratis textures).
    • Keys included.

    • Added Zargabad (was missing)
    • Added correct stars, sun, point, and moon object
    • Reduced file size

geraldbolso1899 informed us he released an updated version of his US Helicopters (HAFM Overhaul) Mod on the BI forums.
This is an edited version of Aplions Arma 2 US Helicopters import addon.

    Quote :
    I know a lot of people wanted to continue the legacy of Aplion, and I decided to take a chance at doing so.
    I stayed away from the BIS forums thread because I wanted to do my own adaptation.
    Lots of changes were made, especially the flight model and weapons.

    • HMDs for blackhawks, Chinook, Venom, Viper and Apache
    • New flight model for every chopper (with Arma 3 physx
    • Added Laser Designator for Apache and Viper.
    • Hellfires come in 3 variants:
        1- AGM-114L Longbow Hellfire Anti-Tank (Radar guided, well, more like IR guided) Fire and Forget.
        2- AGM-114K Anti-Tank Warhead (Laser Guided).
        3- AGM-114N Thermobaric Warhead (Laser Guided).
    • Rockets now have 3 settings that can be swapped like any weapon with the "change weapon" key. The three settings are:
        1- Single
        2- Pairs
        3- Ripple 4
      You need one click for every shot, that is, keeping the fire button pressed won't fire full-auto.
    • M197 Gun (Viper) and M230 Gun (Apache) now have a bigger dispersion and can be zeroed by locking it to the laser.
    • Replaced the gunner optics in the Apache, Viper and Venom.
    • Turrets now slave to the ground once you stop moving the mouse. The Downside is that you can only move the turret when heads down.
    • Replaced the broken sounds on the weapons to Vanilla Rockets/Missiles/Cannons
    • With the integration of physx you can finally autorotate if shot down. Previously you the rotors freezed and you became a ballistic stone.
    • Added a more items and gear on the inventory of the helos.
    • Other stuff i can't remember.

    • fixed Eventhandlers error.
    • Minor tweaks to stuff.

Zenophon informed us he released an updated version of his Infantry Occupy House Script on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This script teleports AI units into nearby buildings at appropriate window positions. Units will stand and face the window so they can fire out of it. Units are moved to random windows every time. If there are enough units, every possible window will be covered; otherwise, you won't know where they are watching. When there are multiple possible windows to face, units will face one at random. Units will not face a windows more than 5 meters away, and the windows will have a reasonable field of view.

    By using this script, you no longer have to manually place units at windows and struggle with the 2d editor. This script allows you to easily simulate the AI occupying buildings and defending their position realistically. It works for just a few units to surprise players, and on a large scale to put dozens of enemies into defensive positions all across a city.

    The function is carefully optimized for almost no performance impact, allowing it to dynamically examine each position for the best possible results. There is no debug, argument checking, or defensive code, to make it as simple and fast as possible, so make sure the arguments are correct.

    • Fixed: Units facing the wrong window
    • Added: Parameter for distance to select multiple buildings
    • Added: Parameter for units being on a roof
    • Improved: Now checks that unit has a good FOV from the windows
    • Improved: Units can no longer face a windows greater than 5 meters away
    • Improved: Units on a roof now crouch
    • Tweaked: Height of human eye to the exact value in ArmA
