tslava has submitted a singleplayer mission where a special forces group are sent to neutralize local CSAT forces.

    Quote tslava :
    CSAT forces occupy the whole Altis. A peninsula Cap Strigla seems to be an ideal place for an American invasion. However, it is first necessary to neutralize local forces, specifically AA defence in the area. Sergeant William Sikorski and his group have been given this task.

IndeedPete released an updated version of his European BLUFOR Re-Texture addon on the BI forums.
The Euroforce XEH - CBA Support addon provides CBA Extended Eventhandler support which is needed for example in ACE3, for the self interaction menu.

    Quote :
    This addon features a re-texture of Arma 3's NATO faction, both conventional and special forces in Altis, Black, Desert, Navy, Snow and Woodland camo schemes.
    It's about a fictional combined European force, founded in 2023.
    Notable operations are the ending of the Altian civil war in 2026, the deployment during the Balkan wars in 2028 as well as the Altis incident and follow-up events from 2035 until 2037.
    Today, EUROFORCE operates in over 50 countries on four continents.
    Notable ongoing operations are the peacekeeping mandate in Israel and Syria, the Japan Airlift, the Saint Petersburg blockade and the assistance mission on the US west-coast.
    Forces are organised in fleets, each capable of conducting operations by land, sea and air. Their command structure is loosely based on Mass Effect's Systems Alliance.
    This release comes with a teeny tiny showcase campaign consisting of five quickly thrown together missions about the redeployment on Altis, roughly two months after the events of the M.E.R.C.S. campaign.

    The promised update is here! It improves all uniform textures and changes the EF Altis and Desert colour schemes. Apart from that, CSAT Snow Tigers received their compatibility adapter addon to support ACE3 and its self inetraction menu. Enjoy!

    • Fixed: New MX rifles and headgear were partly turquoise / blue.

AUTigerGrad released in the BI forums a dynamic insurgency mission.

    Quote AUTigerGrad :
    Terrorists threaten the stability of N'Ziwasogo. UN Forces, attempting to bring the starving population food and supplies, are under constant attack by rebel militia groups, IED attacks, and suicide bombers. Your task as the head of a small UN security detail is to locate and eliminate these terrorists and protect the people of N'Ziwasogo.

    This mission is a dynamic insurgency. There is no set "task" to do. You and your team must investigate potential hot spots of terrorist activity throughout the entire country and eliminate the threat with the support of UN forces. You have dynamic Close Air Support and Helo Transport, as well as dynamic reinforcement capabilities.

IceBreakr submitted an hotfixed version of his famous Isla Duala Terrain for Arma 3.
When you have downloaded version 3.3 already please delete it completely and download this new version 3.33!

    Quote :
    Pssst! Duala 3.2 is out, this time infantry units included... and weapons too. Big thanks to all participants to the project, especially nzdfcrash!

    Isla Duala is a fictional 100km2 African island divided into two countries: Molatia on North and Afrene on South. Border runs along the river and there is a constant tension between both countries. Both countries are backed by different developed world countries that abuse their natural resources: oil and diamonds in Molatia and tourism (natural beauty) in Afrene. Recent discovery of rich oil reserves on Hazena (NW Molatia) ignited the old hatred between countries and Molatia is using fresh income to boost its military. Agressive Molatia is ready to invade weakened Afrene... but US/Europe forces with UN are there to keep the balance and enforce peace.

    African vegetation can be seen everywhere: towns, savannah, desert and jungle. Duala is pretty dry land, but some areas near water feature lush forests and thick greenery. Savannah covers most of the land, while sand and mud is around river beds and beaches. There are no really large hills, rare ones feature rock formations. Guys travelling savannah will find shelter from the sun under acacia trees. Some water rich areas feature thick undergrowth with large datepalm trees and other palms and bushes. There is a vulcano on NW island of Hazena(Rep. of Molatia) but it is resting for many years now.

    Interesting Facts:
    - project took two and half months to reach release state. After the first couple of updates Duala became one of the most popular islands in the community. Project recieved a lot of praise... so, new update came to build on gamers experience.
    - Operation Flashpoint's Tonal is a big inspiration and you can find a tribute - a town looking exactly the same as on Tonal. Author is happy to recieve good review by one of the original makers of Tonal.
    - Duala got mentioned in several PC Gaming magazines and even in Arrowhead Expansion you can spot the reference in the credits ticker
    - it is considered one of the most played custom islands and I hope you get a lot of playing hours on it in A3, too.

    • over 332,000 placed objects
    • various improvements
    • 90s Afrenian rifleman is now armed
