Arma 3 - "Tactical Trident" - StickSubA3


    Stick_Hogue started working on the StickSubA3 project and released a video showing his current work.

      Quote :
      This is a video introducing some scripts I'm working on to bring a modicum of life to the "submarine_01_f" static scenery object, if I can make it work reliably in MP (it's being a pain).
      StickSubA3 uses bangabob's Live Feed Control scripts and some others, along with the lower decks of the required Nimitz mod (used as a "theatrical set") to provide the illusion that you're riding on the submarine. This will allow divers to deploy all over the map, and frees up mission makers from having to force linear missions to keep divers near their AO. Presently it comes with a "mini-DDS" (best I could do with available objects) and one deployable/loadable SDV as well. I have "strap to" scripts allowing 4 additional divers to hang onto the SDV, giving it 8 diver transport capability. Sure, you can drop divers from helicopters, and I applaud such deployments (in contrast to forced linear missions), but it's not the same as having your own JSOC SSGN.

      The video description contains a link to a DefenseDaily story about the Tactical Trident SSGN program.

      Eventually these scripts will include missile launch capability and maybe some kind of useful periscope (maybe) as additional Arma 3 features become available. I'm having a blast with this thing so far, and I think you will, too, once it's been tested enough to be released.

Arma 3 - Project ASTFOR - Astorian Armed Forces


    Yokhanan informed the community of a new project he started with a few other people from the communuty, the Astorian Armed Forces.

      Quote :
      Project ASTFOR is basically built around the premise of a fictional Scandinavian country of our creation which we've come to simply call "Astoria" or "Asteland" existing within the fictional alternate world, or "ArmAverse" located in/around the Norwegian Sea area. While currently housed in proximity at the moment to Norway, the Astelandic kingdom is an independant entity. Furthermore, Astoria is officially a Constitutional Monarchy and member of NATO.

      Since Astoria is Scandinavian, it obviously draws in influence from said countries. However, while the ASTFOR team is focused on keeping hold of some form of realism within this project, the team also does take some creative license here and there along the way. While much of the equipment deployed with the Astelandic forces are familiar to the Scandinavian world, we also have taken creative liberties in some of our choices of said equipment as well to keep some of that uniqueness we wanted with our project. That is why you will find some non-Scandinavian equipment such as choosing the use of the Galil and Negev LMG (thanks to some of the non-Scandinavian influences we've decided to keep) instead of the usual over-used and seen everywhere M4's or HK 416's and M249's.

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.

    Changelog:
    • the ingame colors are back
    • bugs were fixed
    • some new variables for bW:Spy were added
    • the spy module is now also able to play sounds

Zorrobyte released the Group Link 5 Special FX Edition on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    To fully port GL4 to A3, special FX features included.

    What are the differences between GL5 CORE and GL5 FX?
    GL5 CORE is AI only (GL5_System.pbo) for servers and those who use Blastcore, don't want FX, dubbing etc.
    This Group Link 5 Special FX Edition is the full GL4 port including FX, dubbing, blood, burning buildings etc. Literally everything is here (although some may still be broken/buggy).

    Since I use GIT and Forks, I work on the GL5 Core Repo (link) while Lordprimate works on the GL5 FX Repo (link). Any changes I make to the GL5 Core repo (updates, bugfixes, etc) get upstreamed (merged) into the GL5 FX repo.

Kazimierz submitted his RAF Lightning II / RNLAF F-35B Lightining II addon.
This contains two different re-skins of the BIS F-35B.

    Quote :
    This add-on is a re-textured BiS F-35B Lightning as included with the regular Arma 2 game. The original re-skin has been made by Feint (F-35B USMC reskins).

    The BiS model itself is a representation of the XF-35B Technology Demonstrator, as submitted by Lockheed in the development phase of the aircraft. The production version is quite different, so be aware that the reskins are made to approximate the F-35B, though the model is still the XF-35B.

    As of now, two textures are included:
    • RAF:
        The texture is based on the F-35B currently in testing by the RAF. The aircraft is presumed to be operated under the designation Lightning II, though the aircraft is not yet operational.
    • RNLAF:
        The texture is based on the F-35B currently in testing by the RNLAF. The aircraft is a representation of the F-35A, which will become in use in the RNLAF in the future. The F-35A is however, not a VTOL capable aircraft.

    This is a finished texture. The configuration of the add-on might be changed to a more convenient set-up in the future.

Arma 3 - NATO/Russian AK SOPMOD Pack


    WarLord554 is working on a new weapons pack

      Quote :
      Alright guys I am working on several different weapon packs, and this one is nearing alpha release. They are still a heavy wip. I realize that many of our community are not from the US and I thought everyone might like modern, special operations capable weapons. This pack contains NATO 545, 762, and 556 variants. They contain modern mag models, folding buis, RIS systems, animated bipods, custom ammo rounds, and more. There is also a concept tier one ak with modern GL. They will be compatible with most popular accessories packs available to the community, along with most mags. I will continue to keep everyone as updated as possible.

      Variants include:
      - AK74's with MOE stocks, buis, foregrips, RIS, and more. Available in both 545 and 556
      - AK47 standard, higher quality than standard BIS, custom Russian ammo
      - "AK130C" modern concept tier one SOPMOD rifle, upgraded upper receiver and more including modern GL
      - AKS74's modernized, including gp30 variants
      - All variants will have radical SPR MARKSMAN versions
      - Include various camo types, will accept requests for your favorite
      - Custom ammo loadouts including M74, 7N22AP, 231, 231P, 7T3, VOG25, VOG25P, and more!!
