Sushi released his Advanced JTAC TAB module on the Armaholic forums.

    Quote :
    JTAC TAB is ArmA3 addon that provides advanced JTAC system support. Current version allow to call fixed and rotary wings CAS and rotary wings transport with escort when needed. JTAC operator can chose approach direction, type of attack and target mark type. JTAC TAB is based on real CAS and TRANS requests. Like in real world, if u mark target with smoke, you must confirm smoke color when pilot asks for it etc. However, some details had to be slightly modified for ArmA purpose.

    JTAC TAB is also easy to use for mission makers. There are 4 modules to put and synchronize on the map. You can just “put and play”, or you can adjust each cas parameters for your own.

    • Rotary wings can hoover in Battle Position, and JTAC operator decide of missle type and time of engage

    • Taxi can be call with escort if enemy is near
    • Abort codes for abort requested cas
    • Live track requested unit
    • Realistic request templates
    • Simple usage (modules)
    • JTAC operator field manual (PDF)

    Changelog:

Goblin informed us he released an updated version of his H.A.L.O. System addon on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This will be my first official Addon for the ArmA community! This HALO System will allow you to Jump from extreme altitudes over 30,000ft from a C-130 Hercules Aircraft.

    The included Altimeter will be reading Barometric Pressure. ASL, Above-Sea-Level. You should know the Altitude of the DropZone and plan ahead. Tracking over 2km while in FreeFall is possible; more if under canopy for a HAHO. The jump location and altitude will be random to start. Option to re-route Flight possible. System should work for most ArmA Maps. Use-at-your-own-risk. Not responsible for minds-blown!!

    There is a helmet-view complete with custom sounds and dramatic environmental effects! Your visor can (and will) fog-up, freeze over, can crack, etc. There will be thermal layers and accurate and varied temperatures displayed for most ArmA Maps and Climates. The temperature will also fluctuate with months, seasons, and time-of-day.

    The Altimeter can be displayed by using your 'Watch' button while geared-up in your HALO Gear for any Keyboard or Gaming Controller. If you are NOT Geared-up properly, the JumpMaster will deny your Jump and you will have to recheck and repack your gear. The temperature at extreme altitude can reach -70*F with little to NO Oxygen!

    Thermal Jumpsuit, Helmet, and Oxygen Supply IS required. ALL your Gear will be saved and packed into the Pack attached onto your front so you can Jump into the AO fully combat-ready! Water landings possible (and encouraged) for the Black-Ops operative you know you want to be!

    Changelog:
    • Signed: Yes; Server Keys Included
    • Added: H.A.L.O Crate
    • Added: Altimeter (separate object)
    • Tweaked: reBreather System
    • Tweaked: Misc. Code & EFX
    • Changed: Name - VQIHALO1 -> VQI_HALO_C130
    • New: Para System: Lower-Level Jumps! (no special HALO equipment needed)

LAxemann released an updated version of his LAxemann's "Climb" addon on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    "Climb" adds basic climbing functionality to the game.
    You can climb by double-tapping a key which you can define in the userconfig (C by default).
    "Climb" isn't meant to turn ArmA into a free-running paradise and I therefore tried to keep the
    climbing as realistic/ reasonable as possible.

    A small summary:
      • Climb by double-tapping the key you specify in the userconfig
      • The maximum height you're able to climb is based on your current weight load
      • Climbing will increase your fatigue, also based on your current load (That said, it's very exhausting anyway )
      • You won't be able to climb at all in case you're too heavy-loaded
      • You won't be able to climb with a launcher on your back
      • You won't be able to climb if you're too injured

    The climbing isn't pretty but does it's job surprisingly well.

    Changelog:
    • Pulling another player up won't cause him to get stuck anymore. Enjoy your full mutual support!

Trixie released his Sniper/Marksman Pack on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This "pack" originally started out as a simple retexture of the M110 with the addition of a camo net as i wanted a rifle for personal use when playing around in the recon role.
    Started adding more weapons and currently includes 4 different models with 9 configurations in total so far with more planned for the future. Custom ammo provided may be slightly overpowered in its current state, can potentially mess around with that later. There is surely some things i have overlooked, please let me know if there is any problems etc and i'll do my best to fix it.

    Changelog:
    • Added S&B 3-12x50 PM II/LP(?) scope from BAF LRR.
    • Added M110 SASS (Black)
    • Added M14 DMR (Black)
    • Added M14 DMR w/ Harris Bipod (Black)
    • Added Barret M107 (Black)
    • Added Barret M107 (Green)
    • Added HE/HEIAP magazines for M107.
    • Updated UI pictures for every weapon/scope/mag.
    • Updated name of "Rifle Scope" to Leupold Mark 4 LR/T M(?).
    • Fixed ammobox errors.
    • Fixed incorrect classnames.
    • Fixed outdated sound references spam in .rpt.
    • Misc random fixes I've forgotten about.

JonBons released the CAF Aggressors Audio Fix on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    The CAF Aggressors people told me it is fine to post the pbo and I've re-done it as a config only patch as that will make some people happy.
    You can run this as an addon (which requires @CAF_AG) OR copy the files in @CAF_AG_AudioPatch/addons into your @CAF_AG/addons folder.
