SpectreRSG informed us he released an updated version of his TFA - Naval Special Warfare Gear addon on the BI forums.

    Quote SpectreRSG :
    So I had a small bit of free time this week. I'm going to push out an update below. Regardless, I just checked the fatigue, armor values on current BI stuff and mine.. My armor values are still higher than BI and all my mass values are lower than BIS. Unless I'm misunderstanding everything my stuff is still stronger and lighter than vanilla stuff - so fatigue and armor should be fine. But I made tiny tweaks here and there. Stuff may not even be noticeable.

    Anyways, this is going to be a final update for a while or until I have a want to add something or have to fix something. I truly hope people enjoy this mod and continue to use this. This will also be on Steam Workshop shortly. This is v3.90 and includes the following, but note that for the new camos, I will not be tweaking much as I didnt even want to include them or put time into them as other modders have done the stuff to hell already, if someone wants to open it up and make a tweak for me, I'm open to that however.

    • Added:
        - Two Boonie Cap textures (MARPAT Desert/Woodland)
        - Two Utility Cap Textures (MARPAT Desert/Woodland)
        - One new heavy plate carrier (ACU, on request)
        - Three new caps with headsets (Tan, Black, Green)
    • Changed:
        - MICH helmet green texture lightened
    • Fixed:
        - MICH helmet fabric strap visible. Completly removed.

Wodzu submitted an updated version of his Elite Mercenary Unit addon.

    Quote Wodzu :
    It is the day when I came to the conclusion that you need to learn how to encode in Arma 3. With the creation of graphics I never had a problem, so I decided to create an addon which consists of mercenaries.
    In previous versions, all units were placed in a faction of the IND, but I decided to add some "badass" OPFOR units of the faction.
    After the changes made addon system is as follows.
    In Independent faction:
    - Bodyguards
    - Special Heavy Forces
    - Special Light Forces
    - Contractors (New)
    - Kryptek
    - Renegade
    - Security
    - SpecAgent (New)
    - Black Panthers

    In OPFOR faction:
    - Kidnapper_woodland (New)
    - Kidnapper_urban (New)
    - Partizan

    In addition, some textures have been added MH9.

    • Fixed a class of individuals;
    • Removed unnecessary and unused files.
    • Added three new groups: Contractor, Renegade, Special Agent, KidnapperU, Kidnapper_W,
    • Added four MH9 heli paint sheme
    • Cosmetic changes, corrected existing errors

Sabre[Dust] released version 0.8 beta of his UN Units 2030 on the Armaholic forums.

    Quote :
    Due to lack of time I decided to release this in it's current state. Textures and Units may be updated/expanded at some stage in the future.
    This is a retexture addon of several UN ground and air units for Arma 3.

    It is set in the future obviously, to go along with the other A3 units.
    I have added a fictional state of origin for the troops, so they can be used for any scenario.

    • a few texture updates
    • added panther
    • added support trucks (refuel, ammo, repair, medical)

Deanosbeano released his dbo_chairforce addon on the Armaholic forums.

    Quote :
    To celeberate firing from vehicles I thought I would raise the bar for BIS and remind them not to rest yet, this was the most subtle way I could think of.
    This addon allows you to attack your enemy from your comfortable chair.

SolLrMartyn released his Simple Mysql Rank script on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This script will set the ranks of the players ingame. If you have a mysql database you can set the ranks for you clan mates automatically. This is very nice in combination with AddOns like Authentic Gameplay Modification or Simple Rank Patches.
    I created it and tested it with Simple Rank Patches. I will test it with AGM too. You can change the ranks in your mysql table while a player is playing ingame and the rank and the insignia will change.

Günter Severloh informed us LAxemann released an updated version of his Enhanced Soundscape addon on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    ES currently as has three main features:
      • ES plays reverb sounds in the firing direction based on terrain (Distance to the next mountain etc.)
      • When shooting in the direction of a mountain/raised terrain in general there is a chance that the gun sound gets reflected back to the shooter
      • When firing in an urban area, the gun sounds get reflected from nearby buildings

    All this is based on (simple) speed of sound calculations, meaning e.g. that it will take longer for you to hear the gun's echo (popp) when shooting in the direction of a very far away mountain.

    • New soundsets: Mk20, Katiba, Mk200, Rahim
    • New urban soundset for heavy machineguns
