Church released his APEX Drakon Jet-Powered UAV on the BI forums.
Quote : Finally, after 6 long months of development it's here...
Introducing a new Unmanned Aerial System for Arma III. The jet-powered APEX Drakon offers a new way to control the battlefield in a sleek, effective way. Derived from the General Atomics Predator C 'Avenger', the Drakon comes equipped with a slew of incredible weapons and takes no prisoners. Not only was this model built from the ground up by none other than Kiory, this incredible machine comes equipped with a custom loadout editor made from scratch by AWOL, a well known Arma mod creator. Efficiency, design and quality were all key factors in creating this masterpiece.
After a year into Arma's release, I had become frustrated with the vanilla UAV systems. With a game based in 2035, why were we using propeller driven aircraft? Also, why such a weak armament and why are they still extremely buggy? With those frustrations in mind, I set out to fix it myself. Meeting up with Kiory and AWOL, we began work on a new UAV system that would completely change the way UAV's would be viewed in Arma. 6 months later, the Drakon was released. While we still have a long way to go to get it where we want to, this is a step in the right direction.
Includes the APEX Drakon .pbo file which comes with a single Drakon and a custom loadout editor built into the mod.

Deltagamer released the first version of his DEGA Apaches addon on the BI forums.
Quote : I'm aiming to release and update all of the work from my previous mods. The content will be open source, all of the releases will be from previous mods I've worked on with a few exceptions being approved to release open source by fellow modders. Each vehicle/equipment will have its own separate release under this thread to keep mod sizes low. I may also do a large modular release however I feel that releasing each thing individually would be best.
I cant release everything in these mods as I don't own the licences to some of the vehicles (ie stuff I can't release apl-sa as I'm only allowed to use them to an extent without full permission to release openly - example being the puma helicopter), so if its not listed above then it won't make an appearance in this thread.

Quote : - The Rotation Menu System is a context based action menu, designed for external interaction with other objects.
- The system does not currently have a personal menu, but will in future updates.
- Any object, door, ladder, or hatch with a RTMS menu attached to it will present with a menu icon. If it's expandable, a fluid rotatable menu will appear for easy interaction
- All default external actions are already apart of the system, which means get in gunner, driver, ect, are all included.
- The Rotation Menu System is fully expandable and modifiable for any user, with an infinite menu structure. What this basically means is that a sub sub menu is always possible for any menu item. (see part 3 in tutorial).
- The system seems to work better than arma 3's action menu, especially for doors, gates, and other once confusing obstacles. Occlusion also seems to be better, where objects once use-able through walls are blocked in the Rotation Menu System.
- Making menus (see part 1,2 in tutorial) is relatively easy and powerful, and will allow object and class based custom menus.
- There may be some missing actions for special kinds of objects in the game, but hopefully through user feedback any bizarre special cases will be remedied.
- The system is fully script based, with no additional addons (besides CBA for the mod version), or dialogs, or strange initialization requirements; this means its vanilla (I have made it into a addon/mod as well)
- For the mod/addon version, you can still add and remove all your own menus at runtime. Basically, you have no loss of functionality besides adding/removing menus during RTMS's init process.
- Now works on non Arma 3 maps (AiA/CUP included).
- Now has keybindings from CBA.
- Now has personal menu and quick button.
- Now has incremental doors.
Zenophon informed us he released an updated version of his ArmA 3 Co-op Mission Framework on the BI forums.
Quote : Ladies and gentlemen, Armaholics of all ages, I am proud to present a work over a year in the making: Zenophon's ArmA 3 Co-op Mission Framework. My framework is a library of over 190 SQF functions organized into a carefully designed API that is both easy to use and extremely powerful. The functions cover everything from manipulating arrays to an extensive task system. Each one has been meticulously designed and tested to provide useful features with minimal bugs and issues. The framework is designed so that each function is a logical building block that achieves a straightforward effect. The strength of the framework is that each small part fits together neatly with others, allowing you to quickly implement your mission design intuitively.
The framework works with any map and requires no addons. It is compatible with any mod because you choose which functions execute. There is effectively no performance impact to compile the entire framework, and every function has been diligently optimized. All 150 public functions are also carefully documented in an exacting style, and many resources are provided to help you learn to use the framework.
The framework is created with these goals in mind:
Simple co-op fun for both players and mission makers
Bottom-up design using flexible pieces that you control
Truly random and dynamic missions without extra work for mission designers
Procedural mission design instead of manual placement using the editor
Eliminating large, static functions with assumptions about what you want in your mission
Server-oriented execution to create more efficient multiplayer missions
A simplification of locality and interacting with clients in multiplayer
A solid, powerful, and bug-free library to use as a foundation for your own code
Fixed: Zen_CloseDialog and Zen_RefreshDialog did not return void
Fixed: Zen_InvokeDialog does not immediately fire list selection events when called
Fixed: Zen_RefreshDialog did not always refresh changed controls
Added: Zen_CreateControl control types DropList and Slider
Added: Zen_CreateControl properties Picture, PictureColor, PictureColorSelected, and SliderPositions
Documentation: Fixed for Zen_GetControlData

Documentation: Improved POWDialog tutorial with MP and locality section
Documentation: Updated for Dialog System
Documentation: Updated Notepad++ SQF language and autocompletion file with ArmA 1.52 stable commands
Mynock released in the BI forums a new mission where a small team of 8 SpecOps NATO soldiers have to clear out a terrorist cell at an abandoned factory complex.
Quote Mynock : I threw this together while testing some snow effects by Goon and testing some trigger/task things. This mission is short and to the point because of that, but will still hopefully be fun to play around with in the blizzard either by yourself or with some friends.
Massi released an updated version of his NATO SF and Russian Spetsnaz Vehicles addon on the Armaholic forums.
Quote : I’m releasing an updated version of my NATO SF Spetsnaz vehicles, in this version I’ve added Ural trucks in all variants, plus I’ve added Stinger Land Rovers and HMMWV.
You’ll find all the list of fixies in the following changelog.
Thanks a lot for all feedbacks and suggestions.
