Random player spawn place.
Randomized traders' assortment.

New damage system involving bleedout.
Slightly changed vehicle damage system. Anomaly damage depends on speed.

S@ndBob informed us he released an updated version of his Gulf Of Aqaba Map on the BI forums.
Quote : This project refers to a landscape east of the Sinai Peninsula.
It is a so-called quadrilateral region (Israel, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia) with a real-Terrain on the Gulf of Aqaba with the cities of Aqaba (jord.), Eilat, Eilot (isra.) and Taba (egyp.).
The Real-terrain is 20.48 x 20.48 km = ~ 420 km2.
A huge satellite image (pixels nearly 500 million) I used as a template where what belongs to roads, buildings, etc..
Thanks to ArcGIS and USGS (NASA Earth Data).
The map is still expandable. In the North Eastern mountain roads and camps can be expanded. This will happen in a later update.
In 2020 Egyptian and Palestinian radical Islamic terrorist organizations have toppled the Egyptian government and occupy large parts of Jordan and also operate in Israel. Israel and Jordan fight (as it was in 1970) side by side against terrorism.
The story leans heavily on the historical background from 1970, with the terrorist PLO and its offshoot, the Jordanian government ousted in part, threatened and terrorized. Without the flow of arms from the U.S. and the military support of Israel, Jordan probably would lost the war against the PLO and Syria.

Goliath86 released an updated version of his CorePatch, a config patch for Arma 2 OA, on the BI forums.
Quote : I want to inform the community that I'm working on a simple config patch for Arma 2 OA. My objective is to correct all the errors that ArmA 2 OA (1.63) show with the command line -showScriptErrors.
This is still WIP cause first I have to find these errors and then try to correct them.
If anyone know about some of these errors that ArmA 2 OA (1.63), with no mods, show in-game with the command line -showScriptErrors, inform me in this thread and I will try to fix them.
In earlier version 184.108.40.206 I had fixed two common errors:
1. The Functions Module error relative to the BIS_fnc_init variable not initialized;
2. Some errors relative to the handleGear.sqf script, launched when entering in the gear menu or by clicking items in the gear menu.
Merged BIS Silvie Module from BIS Module Improvements Projects by Wolffy.au and zGuba
Further improved BIS Silvie Module so no more heavy damaged vehicle are spawned
Fixed "Duplicate item .." RPT entry by first training mission of ArmA 2

Razzie10 informed the community on the Armaholic forums about the Islamic State units he is working on.
Quote : I'm a Photoshopper/skinner and long time OFP/ARMA player. Finally decided to go and make my own mod. I hope I don't offend anybody, because it's a actual wargroup that is still at war today. The whole reskin has no meaning to me except I was missing a faction between the Takistan army and militia maybe even a middle eastern faction that can fight another "Arabic" faction. My goal is to "copy" the Takistan militia and reskin them in a more blackish colored skins (based on IS) and more vehicles (Coyota, SUV etc).
Reskin all the Takistani militia men to IS'ish colours (WIP)
Add logo's or do total reskin's on militia vehicles (WIP)
