Quote : Lake Chester was an attempt to get a map made for flying and carrier activity into Arma 3. It is a rather large map with 100 x 100 km, but it's mainly sea, some spread out islands and to the northwest a continental landmass. Unfortunately I do not have the time to push this any further and so it sat idle on my harddisk for the better part of 10 months.
Which is a bit of a waste, as the map is functional for the purpose of placing a carrier and flying over large amount of empty space :) So it essentially is a test map for flying and not much more. I've had some fun on it with using a plane vs Pookie's SAM pack, though. There's also a small number of buildings that can be bombed...
While it would be nice to continue to work on this project, I doubt that I'll have the time. If anyone is interested in pushing Lake Chester further, please let me know.
Please do not send me bug reports or feature requests for the terrain, it will stay as is for the time being. Thanks.
Kerc Kasha released his Weapon Eventhandler Framework on the BI forums.
Quote : Hi guys, sorry its taken so long to update this I've been in the process of rewriting the mod for better performance and haven't finished it yet, in the meantime this is a release to fix the config issue that was appearing since Apex release. I apologize for not releasing this sooner as I was looking in the wrong place for a solution when it was right under my nose the entire time.
This mod is designed to act as a framework for other mod makers to extend the base games weapon event handlers to allow for easy to configure sound effects and animations upon firing a weapon. For the most part it's designed around the idea of bolt action rifles, pump-action shotguns and any other manual bolt operation weapon.
Another benefit to the mod is it allows for manual bolting of weapons, which is currently set for when you're looking down a scope allowing you to see where your shot lands before bolting.
On it's own the framework does nothing but with a configured mod (such as Toadie's upcoming AWM/AWC modpack), these features come to life.

Mre released an updated version of his Supremacy Framework - Multiplayer framework addon on the BI forums.

Acowardreleased his Rally Point and Grass Cutting script.
Quote : There were requests from our group members to make a Project reality type rally point system. This is what I came up with. There were requests for a grass cutting script as well, so I made one of those too. Both worked out really well, so here I show you how you can implement it into your own games. The example mission is attached, with the scripts, dialogues, and instructions on how to use it.
Rally Point system used in our missions. (Multiple scripts working together)
Soronelite released updated versions of his =ARC= NATO Offensive Mods on the Armaholic forums.
Quote Soronelite : The "=ARC= NATO Offensive" (ARC:NO) mod aims to add content to the blufor side of Arma 3. More exactly, the mod add new units and vehicles from differents NATO countries.
From a technical view, this units and vehicles use the 3D models of the vanilla game with new HD textures.
You have to keep in mind that this is only re-texturation, so some units will use clothes and gear which are not used IRL.
The mod is splitted in "packs". (So people can take only units they wants etc.)
Formely "-E3- Units" mod, so you'll be able to find the units and vehicles from the E3's Mods.
