FoxFort has submitted this addon that changes CHDKZ infantry uniform textures into similar uniform textures of "Donbass People's Militia" in Eastern Ukraine crisis of 2014.

    Quote FoxFort :
    This addon will REPLACE your vanilla CHDKZ infantry textures.

    This addon changes CHDKZ infantry uniform textures into similar uniform textures of "Donbass People's Militia" in Eastern Ukraine crisis of 2014. I decided to name them "Zagoria People's Militia" (ZPM). I didn't made any changes to the ingame names in order to preserve compability with Singleplayer
    New uniforms are: Spectre-S, Flora, Gorka with Berezka, solo Berezka for medic and Izlom for commander.

    Since I've changed the name from "CHDKZ_camo" into "ZPM". This is now v1.0 of ZPM.

Franze released an updated version of the AH-64D Apache Longbow by him and Nodunit on the BI forums.
It now comes with an ArmA3 compatible controls file, this will enable usage of this chopper in Arma 3. See the downloadpage or the below quote for more information.

    Quote Franze :
    Version 1.32 has been released!

    After more than 3 years, we are finally ready to make the first release of our AH-64D to ArmA2! This addon represents a full circle for us: I had first started on an Apache Longbow for Operation Flashpoint 10 years ago; Nodunit and I made our first combined upgraded release 8 years ago. Now we've finally been able to come back and do what we could only dream of several years ago.

    • Modified data transfer mechanics.
    • Fixed bug with PNVS and FLIR lenses on the model.
    • Fixed multiplayer bugs with scripting not initializing.
    • Added CPG control options when AI is piloting.
    • Modified model UV coordinates.
    • Fixed bug with multiplayer missile avoidance.

Levrex informed us he released version RC3 of the Task Force Arrowhead Radio for ArmA 2: CO which he ported with permission from Arma 3 to Arma 2: OA.

    Quote :
    This is a port of Task Force Radio (ArmA-III) to ArmA-II: CO. It requires @CBA_CO addon.
    It runs on TeamSpeak 3.0.14 and older (till 3.0.11), and probably 3.0.15 too. It requires beta patch no less than 1.62.103718 to work properly, otherwise you sometimes won't hear players in vehicles and encounter other errors.
    Currently it requires plugin version no less than 0.9.0 to work. Plugins are 100% compatible with ArmA3 plugins.

    Having @ACE addon is very preferable, otherwise you will encounter different errors. You can play without it, though, but make sure to delete task_force_ace_radios.pbo and .bisign then.

    • Fixed an error with fn_getFactions.sqf, which popped up on mission start if certain ArmA-2 modules were included.
    • Fixed coop_channel. Now it works properly, and you can also write down the channel name and password in init.sqf to move different sides or even certain players in different channels.
    • Fixed "pictureStaticObject not found" issue when using A.C.E.-2 AN/PRC-117f radio interface.
    • AN/PRC-148: the volume is now changed by a black knob on top of the radio. Additional channel is now on MODE button. GR button does not do anything.
    • FADAK: numpad also works now. You can use it to switch channels. 9 sets additional channel as well as the top pin.
    • AN/PRC-152: the same as above.
    • New sounds for knobs.
    • Added a function to show the channel in which the marker would be placed. The channel is also logged now, as well as the player's side.
    • Fixed the error in function for getting radio settings when the player is a civilian.
    • Rotating volume knobs on R-55 and PD-785.
    • Fixed the wrong info in server config. If tf_no_auto_long_range_radio = 0, then players WOULD receive LR radios.
    • Changed encoding of documentation files to UTF-8 as to make them readable on all systems.
    • Added a .pbo which fixes several ACE function errors. File name is ace_163_fix.pbo. If you don't have ACE or CBA nor plan to install them, you should delete it as well as the task_force_ace_radios.pbo and corresponding .bisign files.

Foxtrop released an updated version of the Project 82 The Falklands/Malvinas War mod on the BI forums.

Quote Foxtrop :
    This contains the IA58 pucara (two rocket pods and 6 small bombs), the Skyhawk A4B and A4C, the Aermacchi m339 (armed with two 30mm defa canon, and two zuni rocket launches of 4 rockets each), the Mirage3EA, the Mirage Nesher/Dagger, the T34C turbomentor and the Pilots.

    • Update of all planes, includes now the Mirage3EA and the Mirage Nesher/Dagger and the T34C turbomentor.
    • The mirage 3EA comes in two configurations
      - armed with two R550 misiles and one fuel tank
      - armed with one R530 misile and 2 fuel tanks
      The mirage Nesher/dagger comes in three configurations
      - armed with 2 Shaffir misiles and one fuel tank
      - armed with 2 bombs and two fuel tanks
      - armed with 4 bombs and two fuel tanks
      The fuel tanks release simply cuts part of your fuel, I was trying to add an script to gain some speed when you release the bombs but I could not do it without causing stutering.
      The T34C turbomentor has one configuration
      - 2 defa 7.62 pods and 2 rocket pods
    • Changes in other planes:
    • A4 added thrust flame, add _AS map to the materials
      Pucara modified fire script to avoid stutering, remade bumpmap

CWR2 PR released version 1.0 of the Cold War Rearmed² beta on the Armaholic forums.
With this release they also released updated versions of the UK, NL, VMF and Terrain Expansions including the all new Poseidon version 1.0.

    Quote CWR2 PR :
    This Modification is the result of around 5 years of development and thousands of hours spent by countless people working on this Project in their spare free time. Without their dedication, and the generous model donations of many people this giant project could have never finished.

    Maybe a little disappointment for some but the pretty girls from the trailer are not included in this release yet. There are still some problems to take care of to make them real pretty. But we decided that the final release should not be delayed even more just because of such minor things. They will be released in a patch as soon as all issues are fixed and QA has nothing to complain anymore.

    Altough called finished, this is not the end yet. We still work on some more Expansions and are fixing smaller issues. And most probably there are bugs showing up after released, they always do! What we are able to fix, we will of course.

    With this version, we also release updated versions of the UK, NL, VMF and Terrain Expansions.
    We hope you will enjoy this work and have many hours of fun with it.

    Oh, there's one more thing.
    Around two years ago, W0lle had the crazy idea to port the terrain used in the "Poseidon Technology Demo" from 1997 to CWR². And a crazy idea it was indeed because to achieve this, Mikero had to update his Editing Tools so the ancient data format becomes readable. And then Jakerod spent more than a year on deciding how the terrain should look like, creating the textures and villages while trying to stay as close to the original as possible.
    The result is maybe one of the most beautiful and detailed terrains we ever created with a lot of interesting spots. We are sure this will give mission creators some inspiration and then even more fun for you.

    This release is dedicated to James 'Planck' McNicoll.
