Sil Carmikas released an updated version of his Simple Random Weather Script on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This is a bit of a mashup using manage_weather.sqf files from the original Liberation 0.924 mission from [GREUH]zBug and [GREUH]McKeewa.
    The code will execute within the mission to add random weather pattern generation making use of the newer selectRandom command (Arma 3 Version: 1.56) This does not offer parameter selection for servers, the only customization that can be done is within the SQF file. This is a very basic script I am working with to learn scripting for Arma 3. Anyone is welcome to use this as they see fit.

    • Made setRain entries optional. The script will now automatically select the appropriate rain amounts without any restriction. If you want the restriction still for FPS purposes, then use the "If Then" statements provided in the script comments within the SQF file itself.
    • Added more options to the setOvercast arrays. This gives an increased range of options for selectRandom to be able to use.

Incontinentia informed us he released an updated version of his Incon Airpower script on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    Script package for Arma 3 mission makers that allows players to call in air support for target tracking and air strikes. Unlike other CAS scripts, Incon Airpower simulates high-altitude strikes where the aircraft is neither visible nor audible from the ground. The aicraft itself is not spawned, only simulated. Ideal for single player and low-player-count COOP (lots of players using tracking may cause considerable server lag).

    • Rewrote script for full MP compatibility
    • Reduced radio trigger usage in favour of "CAS Interact" menu
    • Added status report option
    • All units can interact with CAS provided they have necessary item
    • Fixed: JIP issues
    • Fixed: player leaving during CAS request would make script hang
    • Fixed: script hanging if player leaves after a strike request
    • Made script more robust overall
    • CAS status now remote to server, strikes still local to client
    • Removed superfluous game objects
    • Reduced time between choosing to mark with laser and confirming mark
    • All variables now synchronise properly across clients and server
    • Increased airpower engaging timeout
    • Added the ability to use the action menu to interact with CAS rather than Radio Charlie. This should help mitigate conflicts with certain addons/scripts (thanks to law-giver for the feedback)

Engima released an updated version of his TypeSqf Editor on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    A script editor for SQF scripts. The most important features are:
    • Syntax checking
    • Syntax highlighting
    • Share and download community made content via the CPack service. (I named it CPack - in Visual Studio they call it Nugets).

    The TypeSQF editor along with its CPack system (for sharing content between script editors) makes it real simple to create missions, even for unexperienced programmers. The CPack system lets you inject other authors work into your mission, and the editor keeps track of the logic in your code, alerting you if something is erroneous or suspicious.

    • Added color theme "Default Dark" (community wish-list).
    • Added possibility to customize color themes (community with-list).
    • Added possibility to add predefined and customized variables to file templates (community wish-list).
    • Added template for Description.ext.
    • Fixed: When closing a tab, the previously opened tab should be activated.
    • Fixed: Stability issues.
    • SQX: Compiler fixes and improvements.

Firewill released an updated version of his F-14D Tomcat Standalone on the BI forums.
At the same time he has also released the F-14 Skin Pack 1 which present the VF-213 Black Lions Paint Scheme from 1970s to 2006.

    Quote :
    The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is a supersonic, twin-engine, two-seat, variable-sweep wing fighter aircraft. The Tomcat was developed for the United States Navy's Naval Fighter Experimental (VFX) program following the collapse of the F-111B project. The F-14 was the first of the American teen-series fighters, which were designed incorporating the experience of air combat against MiG fighters during the Vietnam War.

Firewill submitted an updated version of his F-16C Fighting Falcon Standalone addon.

    Quote :
    The General Dynamics (now Lockheed Martin) F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-engine multirole fighter aircraft originally developed by General Dynamics for the United States Air Force (USAF). Designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multirole aircraft. Over 4,500 aircraft have been built since production was approved in 1976. Although no longer being purchased by the U.S. Air Force, improved versions are still being built for export customers. In 1993, General Dynamics sold its aircraft manufacturing business to the Lockheed Corporation, which in turn became part of Lockheed Martin after a 1995 merger with Martin Marietta.

    The Fighting Falcon has key features including a frameless bubble canopy for better visibility, side-mounted control stick to ease control while maneuvering, a seat reclined 30 degrees to reduce the effect of g-forces on the pilot, and the first use of a relaxed static stability/fly-by-wire flight control system helps to make it a nimble aircraft. The F-16 has an internal M61 Vulcan cannon and 11 locations for mounting weapons and other mission equipment. The F-16's official name is "Fighting Falcon", but "Viper" is commonly used by its pilots, due to a perceived resemblance to a viper snake as well as the Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viper starfighter.

    In addition to active duty U.S. Air Force, Air Force Reserve Command, and Air National Guard units, the aircraft is also used by the USAF aerial demonstration team, the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, and as an adversary/aggressor aircraft by the United States Navy. The F-16 has also been procured to serve in the air forces of 25 other nations.

Firewill released an updated version of his F-15 Eagle Series Standalone addon on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F-15 Eagle is an American twin-engine, all-weather tactical fighter designed by McDonnell Douglas to gain and maintain air supremacy in aerial combat. It is among the most successful modern fighters, with over 100 victories and no losses in aerial combat with the majority of the kills by the Israel Air Force. Following reviews of proposals, the United States Air Force selected McDonnell Douglas' design in 1967 to meet the service's need for a dedicated air superiority fighter. The Eagle first flew in July 1972, and entered service in 1976.
