_Williamsubmitted a first version of the Foliage Camouflage System.
The Foliage Camouflage System (FolCamS) is a 'logic' module that attaches foliage to tanks, cars and artillery to camouflage them.
Quote _William : This add-on recreates in Arma 2 the practice of camouflaging vehicles with twigs and leaves, as practiced by WWII Wehrmacht and Cold War NATO forces. Foliage camouflage works in SP and MP.
FolCamS comes with a database of vehicle dimensions, which enables it to camouflage over 180 vehicles from popular WWII and NATO forces out of the box. And for vehicle classes not yet supported, mission creators can simply add or change vehicle data at mission start, so their mission's vehicles will be camouflaged as well. See the 13 page manual (included) for detailed instructions.
FolCamS can attach foliage to the hull and to the turret (memory points). It spawns a per-vehicle script to align the turret-attached foliage with the rotating turret.
For now, only conifer camouflage is being available, but FolCamS is capable using other vegetation when made available.
Quote VanZant : This is a small addon I created to restore some UI elements to its default appearance, like the picture of the loading screen or the Arma 2 logo on the main screen. Those things that some mods change when they're installed.
There is almost an endless amount of possible customizations so don't expect restoring the 100%, especially if you have a lot of mods installed.
Tips & tricks:
If a mod has put its own logo on the bottom left corner, right next to the "official" ones, go to that mod's folder and search for a file named "mod.paa", rename it to "mod.paa.bak" or delete it and then the logo will be gone.
Hand of MoscoW sent us his latest release for Arma 2: Combined Operations. This time he has released the 64N6E acquisition radar addon.
Quote Hand of MoscoW : Here is a new mobile radar for ArmA 2 CO.
The 64N6E acquisition radar is essentially a mobile centimetric wave-band all-round looking radar featuring a two-face phased array, as well as an automatic operating mode and data reception control means. The 64N6E radar's air target detection range, resolution, accuracy and information update rate allow the combat control station personnel to lock on and track various threats in all environments, including heavy ECM environment, identify the detected threats and take bearing of enemy active jammers. The radar can be deployed or stowed in few minutes – the booms stow against the array, the outer panels of the array swing inward and the whole antenna stows forward to lie flat on top of the trailer. Also is provided with a gas-turbine generator producing a 3-phase 220 V 400 Hz voltage. The radar equipment is arranged in two containers: F6E (phased array, transmitter and receiver) and F8E (noise protection, data processing and radar control devices), installed on a road train (the Maz-74106 truck tractor and "9988" semitrailer).

Alwarren released an updated version of the FHQ Remington Weapon Pack on the BI forum.
Quote Alwarren : This pack contains a number of rifles manufactured by Remington Arms Corporation. Most notably, it contains the Adaptive Combat Rifle (ACR) in several configs, the Modular Sniper Rifle MSR, the XM2010, and the Remington Semi-Automatic Sniper System (RSASS R11).
New ACR Variant: ACR with a TWS-3050 Thermal Weapon Sight with all options (Grenade Launcher, Silencer).
New Inventory icons for the magazines
Replaced green bags for magazines on the ground with real models.
New sounds for the MSR, XM2010 and RSASS.
Muzzle flashes toned down to a more realistic measure. Now uses the same muzzle flash as the BIS SCAR’s.
Bonus Mission: Pinnacle 01: Just Another Boring Day by Varanon. Playable both as single and multiplayer.
Zeroing changes: The HWS and CCO silenced variants of the ACR now have their zeroing reduced to 100. This should give a lower trajectory and make hitting targets easier with subsonic ammunition. The iron sight version has adjustable zero, and all other versions have inherent predetermined zeroing due to their scope type.
