EricJ released an updated version of his Taliban Fighters on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    A simple set of fighters that represent closely what is in real life, using ported from A2 models and textures (Takistan civilians).

    It should be noted that other than a couple RGOs, they're unarmed and decided to keep it relatively simple given player preference on weapon mods and the like, so you'll have to gear them up in the Editor or Virtual Arsenal, etc.

    • Disabled glasses from all units (Taliban, civilian)
    • Removed BIS Vest
    • Removed RGOs

ViperMaul informed the community about the release of a new version of the Community Base addons (CBA) on the BI forums.
The changelog is very long and can be found on our downloadpage.

    Quote ViperMaul :
    This release brings full compatibility with Arma 3 v1.62, including Joint Rails for the new weapons and optics as well as XEH compatibility with new assets from the APEX expansion.
    NOTE Due to critical files not being present in Arma versions before v1.62, this version no longer supports the v1.54 Linux/MacOS ports. Use CBA_A3 v2.5.0 instead. This does not mean that you have to have bought the Tanoa DLC to use CBA_A3 however.

    • Added: Joint Rails compatibility with new weapons and optics from Tanoa DLC (#388) robalo
    • Changed: Fire Teams no longer have to be synched by CBA (#424, #430) PabstMirror
    • Fixed: XEH compatibility with new assets (#399) commy2
    • Fixed: Error Message / Server crash Script userconfig\cba\settings.sqf not found (#425, #426, #427) commy2

Von Quest released an updated version of his L.E.A.P - Low and Extreme Altitude ParaJumps on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This is the Stand-Alone Module of my HALO/PARA Infiltration System from my SpookWarCom Project. This Module will allow the player to setup transport and perform a combat parajump into any area of the map you desire. Both low-altitude parajumps, and high-altitude HALO jumps are supported. For the more extreme HALO jumps, special equipment is needed to survive the harsh and dangerous environment of the low-oxygen, sub-zero atmosphere.

    I must stress this is a fictional project. Some creative liberties are taken for better gameplay and immersion. Do not expect a 1:1 simulation of a true military freefall operation. This is a GAME.

    • Changed: Default Keybinding: SHIFT + L
    • Changed: Crate Name
    • Added: Dragonfly Rig w/ GAS System (FROGS)
    • Added: SAMs are now 2x more accurate if ParaJump
    • Added: Fog-of-War for BOTH HALO and PARA Flights
    • Added: SAMs (if POOK SAM Pack) spawn at SAM Sites
    • Added: SAM Teams at 30% of SAM Sites

Von Quest released an updated version of his =VQI= Frogs on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This is the Stand-Alone Module of my Comabt Diver System from my SpookWarCom Project. This will focus on the Underwater Environment and the unique elements of the murky and chilling capacity of Combat Diving Operations.

    For me, one of the greatest parts of ArmA is the Diving and NEW v1.6 water environment. What an amazing experience for a game. I want to build off the rebreather and add more layers to the SCUBA and explore some deep water possibilities and immersion.

    This project will be similar to my HALO Mod, but instead of the extreme altitude, this will focus on the deep sea and combat underwater operations. I want to explore more options of Gear & Systems (mostly fictional) for deep water ops, like salvage, recovery, surveillance, etc. I also will be adding a Submarine or three with the ability to use a Lock-Out Chamber for deploying Spec-Ops, CRRCs and SDVs.

    • Fixed: Hotfix for CORE (old Ops Center)
    • Added: Trident Diving Computer
    • Added: Stingray Re-Breather Rig
    • Added: SA-2 Bottles: DIVOX & NITROX
    • Added: Combat Diver Operations Crate

Von Quest informed us he released an updated version of his =VQI= SCAR -- Enemy Spawn System on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    Enemy Spawn System! This is the Stand-Alone Module system of my DARK Project from SpookWarCom. Fully customizable, and intensely dynamic game-play for any and ALL ArmA Maps. Even NEW Maps!! Create quiet "behind-enemy-lines" Missions, Defending a NATO Base, Terrorists and War Lord controlled territory, or full-blown chaotic War-Zones where you are fighting for the freedom of an occupied sovereign country.

    The heart of the System is the Areas-of-Operation. You can select 'Known' Intel, or probable 'Unknown' Intel. Select Passive or Aggressive Patrols for either slower realistic or more intense styles of play. Select the EXACT number of AOs or select RANDOM for each group. Mix-n-Match the Modules and Options as you wish for trillions of variation. Easy to use. Very very noob friendly!

    • Changed: Vastly INCREASED the startup speed
    • Changed: Default Keybinding: SHIFT + A
    • Changed: Increased Call for ARTY 10%
    • Changed: Tweaked Markers Alpha-Color
    • Fixed: QRF Heli crashing onto players, etc
