metalcraze released an updated version of his New lighting for CUP terrains addon on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This is a quick and dirty config tweak that ports current (1.59) devbranch lighting to CUP terrains.

    • changed to per-island lighting config: should avoid compatibility issues with most non-CUP islands, they should use vanilla/their own lighting now
    • slightly tweaked HDR parameters for darker tones (hopefully better shadows/less whiteness now)
    • added NVG fix from latest dev-branch HDR settings

Tortuosit released an updated version of his Dynamic weather 2 addon on the BI forums.
The Dynamic weather 2 addon is a fully reworked version of his Dynamic weather addon! The Dynamic weather addon is no longer maintained.

    Quote :
    I rewrote my old script/mod (Dynamic weather addon) because basically wind/rain/fog/overcast were not independent.
    In this rewrite, they are own threads. I'm not progressing too well due to no time and I feel somewhat uncomfortable at some points... about how I wrote it... time will tell. Its WIP and quite early, but works. I'm currently not thinking about MP, this may change. It's done with using from missions/scripting (call via execvm) in mind, but not yet documented and tested.

    • The mods default behaviour: it usually applies island specific weather (with a default fallback when map is unknown).
    • --> [Change] This can be overridden now by a mission specific weather definition, by putting code into a units init line in the editor.

Tortuosit released an updated version of his tort_PlayMusic addon on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    Hi guys, for my own purposes I created a music playing mod. Goal was to keep it as simple as possible. I wanted to be able to add/replace music as easy as possible, ArmA to my knowledge is not very helpful here.
    Tracks are played randomly, mod does not keep track of what has been played... repetitions may occur. I don't want to make too many changes, it is just fine for me. No support for multiple playlists etc. Well, to be honest, haven't got much time for support at all. But source is open, so feel free to DIY!

    Personally I use it for Pilgrimage mission and Haleks' Ravage mission. Placed creepy music from... different sources... and have a nice mood now.
    But you have to turn of missions music playback, if exist. I.e. this mod should only run exactly when you need it.

    • Support of gaussian probability distribution (BIS Wiki) in the playback pauses.

    Artillery script showcase on ALTIS: chase players with smokes, flares, explosions, simulate artillery fire support and battlefield.
    Un-pbo the mission and read the comments or watch the video tutorial for more information.

    If you find nice ways to modify the script for better effects let me know.
    Thank you and have fun!

ChanceBrahh submitted an updated version of his AUSSIEpack.

    Quote :
    This is an Australian Mod Pack, it features headwear, backpacks and clothing retextured by myself. It also contains the customs vests created by 'cunico' and retexture by myself to better match the uniforms used in the pack.
    Besides featuring the uniforms it also contains the ADFU choppers and the LAV along with Pingas Bushmaster, Raids Abrams tank and of course the FFAAs Tiger Chopper. All this together creates one of the most useful Australian mod packs.

    The changes to V2 are as follows, I have added in multicam units, added a OPTIONAL TFAR folder, changed damage specs of the bushmaster, added a bushmaster and its occupants to each units class (for example AUS DESERT has AUS DESERT drivers and so forth, just making it easier on the mission maker)

    • Saves vehicle position, direction, fuel, damage and inventory to database (every minute or when you exit a vehicle)
    • Gives you the ability to connect it to your team-website and build a little interface to add resupply points
    • Saves all of the above based on map and mission name. So you can switch without losing your progress for a specific mission
    • Addon only needs to be installed on the server / no client side installation required

    • all errors from the rpt log should now be solved (if not, post here)
