Panicsferd has submitted a singleplayer rescue mission.

    Quote Panicsferd :
    A day ago we got some very reliable intel that stated our undercover spy that we planted within the CSAT ranks was captured and is being held in Neri. We are sending in a Diver Team, Callsign Sierra to verify the intel and then rescue that VIP so that we will not lose the information that he has acquired.

Kiory informed us he released an updated version of his Skull Mask addon on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    It's been a long time since I've dabbled with hats, so I wanted to do something a bit special.
    A day one challenge, in where I try to make something half decent in a day, including sculpting a high poly model, retopo into a low poly, unwrapping, texturing, O2 stuff, config etc, it was a fun project and I hope to do more in the future.

    Without further a due, I present the Skull Mask, it's totally way better than my balaclava, and any cool people should really use this instead, I will be making another update soon so it actually has ballistic armour etc, so it'll be quite functional as headgear.

    Become a bonafide baddass today, or not, it's up to you lady man.

    Changelog:
    • Fixed specular map
    • Added armour values, you'll be saved ONCE, rarely twice when shot in the head, depending on caliber.
    • Added 2 more variants through hidden selections
    • Hidden selections are now supported.

Genesis92x released an updated version of his Vcom AI script suite on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    I am releasing the first version of my AI script suite. This script suite is a plug-and-play script package that uses FSM's and compiled code to make AI react in a more fulfilling way.

    Well what does this even do?
    First off, go ahead and download this and just use the radio commands. It will give you a brief overview of what you can expect from the AI changes.
    The showcase is important because it shows tests with vanilla AI and Vcom AI. It should be easy to see the difference this way.
    - Vcom AI Showcase 1.00 (Do not use this for missions, it is only for showcasing!)

    Features:
    • Varying AI accuracy
    • AI Communication
    • AI Cover
    • Improved Flanking
    • AI Responsiveness
    • AI Suppression
    • Weapon Utilization
    • Garrisoning
    • Formations
    • Vehicle Disembarking
    • Visual Cues
    • Customization
    • Respect

    Changelog:
    • accidently deleted a bit of code that affected the AI and their cover taking abilities (thanks VRCRaptor)
    • fixed the players not being able to suppress the AI properly

Taosenai released an updated version of his Tao Modular Realism modification on the BI forums.

    Quote Taosenai :
    TMR is a modular, open-source modification for Arma 3 aimed at increasing realism and complexity without sacrificing engaging gameplay and accessibility. Currently it includes only a small number of features, but more are being developed. TMR is meant to be used in all environments: single player, multiplayer co-op, team vs. team, even open-world scenarios.

    I am the king of rapid updates for stupid bugs, but at least I get some little new feature in each time.
    Thanks to AW-Conroy for reporting the autorest directionality bug, which was the thoughtless result of an overenthusiastic last-minute optimization (which saved 0.06 ms!).

    Changelog:
    • Fixed: One line fix to script reloading after save/load rather than after abort/continue.

    Which version should I use?
    Download TMR Modular Realism if you are playing singleplayer or multiplayer on servers which are also running TMR Modular Realism.
    Download TMR Modular Realism - CSO (Client Side Only) if you are using TMR in multiplayer on servers not running TMR, or if you would like to avoid certain issues in singleplayer missions made without TMR in mind (e.g., the official campaign).
    Use only one at a time!
    Server administrators not running TMR should use the TMR-CSO key to only permit connections from players using the CSO version.

    TMR now recommends ASDG Joint Rails for use with the autorest module. Without it, you will not be able to attach the bipod accessory (“tmr_acc_bipod”).
    If you would like visible, animated bipods, use TMR with ASDG Attachments.

Rydygier submitted an upated version of his HETMAN - Artificial Leader addon for Arma 3.

    Quote Rydygier :
    Same, as HAC for Arma 2, HAL is intended to enliven the battlefield of Arma 3 the same way a human leader would operate. HAL does not deal with the manner in which orders are executed (unit level), but mainly deals with the issuing of orders. In other words, this addon gives one or both sides of a conflict a field-commander level AI.

    Changelog:
    • several code tweaks and fixes
    • fixed a mistake in manual
