Ovenmit informed us he released an updated version of the SA58 which he ported from Arma 2 on the BI forums.
Quote : I have ported one of my favourite weapons from Arma 2. Everything seems to be working as far as I can see. New muzzle system is in place.
I may still tweak the config based on comments or my own findings. I plan to make a new texture too in a future release.
Added Joint Rail support
Although it will work without ASDG Joint Rails it is strongly recommended you have it.
Blazenchamber released a new update on the Armaholic forums about the Specialist Military Arms mod.
Quote blazenchamber : This is a weapons and attatchments addon that will feture some really cool and unique models to the game for everyone to enjoy.
We currently have 11 new weapons, 9 assault rifles and one sniper all with variants of each weapon.
Each will have custom ammunition and sounds.
Firefly2442 released an updated version of his Arma Mission Briefing Conversion tool on the BI forums.
Quote firefly2442 : Just a small program I put together for converting missions.
This program batch upconverts old OFP and Arma style missions to the new briefing system used in Arma2. It parses the briefing.html file and pulls out the appropriate sections and creates a briefing.sqf file. Debriefing is still kept and saved to a new briefing.html file.
It's mostly untested at the moment, although it seems to be able to run without any errors.
Hopefully this is helpful to someone who is nostalgic about all the great old missions that are out there. If anyone wants to add support to this program for converting from Arma2 to Arma3, I would certainly love to get a pull request on Github.
Made a couple of tweaks and improvements. Should be able to run on more missions now without failing.
TerroRPL2 has submitted this singleplayer mission for Arma 2.
Quote TerroRPL2 : In last times, OPFOR has just taken the USMC's armory in field. They were prepairing for a war. You're being sent to support the USMC and clear: Armory site, Novy Sobor, Stary Sobor and Kabanino. (I'm new in creating missions, I don't know how to ask tasks, however, it'll display to for example: Get in, clear, move etc...) You'll have 3 squads in your high command: 2x infantry, 1x tank platoon (The mission is very hard, so stay alert.
Soner released an updated version of the battleWarden:RCon tool on the BI forums.
Quote Soner : battleWarden is a highly flexible toolset for the anti-cheat engine BattlEye which is being used in the popular tactical military simulation known as ArmA 2. Currently it only consists of battleWarden:RCon (commonly known as ArmA 2 RCon), a powerful remote control tool for Armed Assault 2 servers running with BattlEye.
The development started back in the year 2010 when there was not any remote control tool available for administrators featuring a graphical user interface but only a standard console-based program provided by BattlEye itself. This case resulted from the fact that there was not any official specification of the BattlEye network protocol released at the time. Thus we decided to analyse the whole protocol and to build our own fully compatible BattlEye client which was then integrated into a new flexible GUI for the Windows platform. After its release it quickly became the de facto standard remote control tool among the server administrators in the Armed Assault community.
Since then battleWarden:RCon has been updated consistently in order to support all new releasing features of BattlEye. By this way we ensure to fit all the needs of the Armed Assault administrators.
supporting admin names
now has some premium features (except battleWarden:Spy) for Non-Premium version.

Arma 3 - Czechoslovak army 1938-1945
Petrtlach released a bunch of new wip screens on the BI forums this week.
Peral announced his Airfield Logistics project and released some first screenshots.
Quote : This mod is made up of four logistics vehicles consisting of a A/S32A Towing Tractor, B-600 Towing Tractor, Still DFG 3/4106 Forklift, and Manitex Liftking USN6. The towing tractors will tow planes and helicopters, and the forklift will lift and load cargo onto aircraft (directly with United States Air Force mod C17 and C5).
Randomslap started working on the F15SE (model by dezkit).
Quote : The Boeing F15SE Silent Eagle is an upgraded McDonnell Douglas F-15 with stealth features. It contains upgrades like RCS (radar-cross section) treatment, weapons bays and other fifth generation fighter technologies. Today, the F15SE Silent Eagle is still under development by Boeing, but it will be the most up to date F15. In this ArmA 3 mod, I have tried to make it as accurate as possible. I have included features like weapon bays, mounted hud on the pilot's helmet, a co-pilot seat, F110-GE-129 engine nozzels, and many more.
Shazersubmitted his PAK FA Enhancement mod.
This mod provides a more realistic version of the PAK FA mainly in the sound and flight model department.
Quote : This mod takes the PAK FA from the wings of the east pack and adds new sounds, new warning sounds, and changes the flight model so its not a little toy plane that stalls like no tomorrow.
The planes new take off speed is about 160 and it doesn't turn as sharp (still turns sharper than the F-22). Also I removed the After burner and smoke functions as they were broken.
I'm still trying to fix the Afterburner as speed wise it needs it but will wait and see.
