Sup3r6F0ur submitted his ATLAS LHD template which uses map markers to help with placing objects onto the ATLAS LHD.
The ATLAS LHD has been released by J0nes earlier today.

    Quote :
    A simple template using map markers to help with placing objects onto the ATLAS LHD.

    • Map markers to outline certain area's of the LHD
    • Approximate heights for placing objects onto the LHD

    J0nes who made the LHD said he is working on making a picture so when the LHD is placed the markers will not be needed. So this template can hold as a placeholder until then.

    Please understand that the markers are close to accurate, however are not precise. I recommend giving a meter or two of play when placing objects so they don't clip into the ship and blow up. Also, the heights are approximate and not precise.

Hcpookie released the first version of his Pook SAM Pack on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    Modern SAM Systems including 9K33x, 9K37, 9K317, and 96K6 platforms. Their original Russian designations are used. Missile performance and behavior based on real-world data and video footage. The 9K33x, 9K37, and 9K317 are normally radar guided, and they can also be optically guided in an ECM-heavy environment. Therefore, I added manual control to these missiles. This is subject to removal in future releases based on feedback.

    All BIS factions represented, since it stands to reason that the CDF and Takistani Army would have acquired these in their inventories.

    • 9K331/9K332 Tor (SA-15)
    • 9K37 / 9K317 Buk (SA-11)
    • 96K6 Pantsir (SA-22)
    • NASAMS (AIM-120)
    • C-RAM ADS

    The pook_SA11 pack requires the Rangemaster mod for the SA-11 texture (part of FRL_Missilebox).
    The baseline pook_SAM, pook_SA22 and pook_SA15 do not have any other dependencies.

    • Fix reported errors
    • updating small issues
    • Add NASAMS and C-RAM systems

    It's diverse range of bulky cargo carried internally or under-slung can include artillery, Land Rovers or light-strike vehicles and more than five tonnes of freight.

Macusercom has submitted his first Arma 3 mission where you have to recapture Mike-26 and help other units in your area!

    Quote Macusercom :
    This is my first ArmA 3 mission so don't hate me. However, I have a lot of skills in ArmA 2 so it's not a complete noobie mission.

    You are US Army soldiers fighting in Stratis to provide safety and freedom. Enemy CSAT units have capture Mike-26 in the west of the island. Recapture it and help your own units to eliminate all hostiles.

SpectreRSG informed us he released a new version of his TFA - Naval Special Warfare Gear addon on the BI forums.

    Quote SpectreRSG :
    This update adds a lot of new and redone boonie cap textures in addition to Ghostex camos, with some new textures being done for the NWU3/AOR2 and MARPATs and a new White (NWU3) variant uniform. There's other small fixes and additions but those stated before are the highlight. I'm still looking for a modeler to work with and/or have stuff donated. I'm looking for a new backpack primarily. If you know a modeler who is either open to working together or is open for a donation, please have them contact me! Thanks! On a personal note, thanks for all that you did for the community Rocket. Dayz is in good hands and I'm excited to see what ya have in store for the future.

    • 5.11 RUSH 12 packs w/Antennae (compatible w/TFAR!)
