Nubbuka released the first version of his Nabbi Islands on the Armaholic forums.

    Quote :
    Region called Nabbi Islands! Containing 3 islands near each other with shallow water ways to cross with vehicles, 3 military bases on mountain tops and 4-6 villages and cities! The map is 2km square big and is surrounded by islands. A lot of forests and a decent roads system is used due to this being a not so technological region. The capital city is called Nabbi, marked on map. Also the center of it all.

    • 3 Military bases on hill tops, with a short runway.
    • 4-6 cities and villages.
    • Shallow water ways connecting in between the islands for vehicle transportation.
    • Road ways for easy routes on the islands.
    • Surrounded by Ocean and has rivers between the islands for boats.
    • 2 Main docks for ships

Zenophon informed us he released an updated version of his Co-op Mission Framework and SQF Library 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

    • New Function: Zen_FindPositionPoly
    • New Function: Zen_OrderSlingLoad
    • New Function: Zen_QuantizeAngles
    • Fixed: Zen_FindGroundPosition point distribution is now perfectly even for all marker shapes
    • Fixed: Zen_OrderInfantryPatrol used the wrong type to check parameter 7
    • Fixed: Zen_SpawnAircraft and Zen_SpawnHelicopter reversed parameters 2 and 3
    • Added: Standard macro ZEN_STD_Code_SwapVars
    • Improved: Standard macro ZEN_STD_Misc_SleepFrames renamed to ZEN_STD_Code_SleepFrames
    • Improved: Standard macro ZEN_STD_Misc_WaitScript renamed to ZEN_STD_Code_WaitScript
    • Improved: Zen_SpawnItemsOnTable randomly places the object using a rectangular shape algorithm
    • Improved: Zen_OrderFastRope has correct rope positions for the two new helicopters
    • Improved: Zen_OrderFastRope and Zen_OrderHelicopterLand open the doors on more helicopters
    • Improved: Zen_OrderExtraction and Zen_OrderInsertion force the helicopter to keep its engines running
    • Improved: Zen_OrderHelicopterLand no longer deletes the invisible helper helipad used to guide the AI
    • Improved: Zen_SpawnVehicleCrew no longer spawns crew for fire-from-vehicle positions
    • Documentation: Added for Zen_FindPositionPoly, Zen_OrderSlingLoad, Zen_QuantizeAngles, ZEN_STD_Code_SwapVars
    • Documentation: Updated for ZEN_STD_Code_SleepFrames and ZEN_STD_Code_WaitScript
    • Documentation: Updated Notepad++ SQF language and autocompletion file with ArmA 1.34 stable commands

PennyWize74 submitted his "USMC" CH-49 Mohawk template.

    Quote :
    I got inspired a lot by the USMC CH-53E when creating the retexture for the Mohawk.
    So maybe a few of you will recognize the similarities (I actually hope so).

    I am working on a Desert USMC skin and a German Heer skin. Maybe a UN Skin will follow.
