IceBreakr released an updated version of his Island Panthera for Arma 3 on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    Name Panthera itself comes from Slovenian history of "black panther" crest. Map itself is based on the real height data of Slovenia's Northwest part in Europe - named Gorenjska Region.
    "Gora" in Slovenian means mountain and Gorenjska region (represented in Panthera) certainly lives up to its name being home to most of Slovenia’s biggest mountains, including the highest of them all – Triglav (three heads) standing at an impressive 2,865 metres. The Julian Alps and the beautiful Triglav National Park are the main features of the region – offering not just outstanding scenery, but a wealth of plant and animal life and an abundance of outdoor activities. It is also home to the unforgettable lakes Bled and Bohinj. It is almost impossible to decide which one you prefer – Serene Bohinj and its majestic mountain setting or fairytale Bled with its seventeenth century church on an island overlooked by a castle perched on a rocky outcrop.

    • new huge island: Savagia (inc. Felis Prison and couple of small settlements)
    • connected Savagia to Rubina with bridge
    • enabled dust effects for all terrain types

Mathias_eichinger released his Everon National Police (ENP) SWAT team addon on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This mod adds 3 soldiers featuring retextures BLUFOR units in an urban camo pattern provided in a woodland version by calpa9907.
    These units represent the Everon National Police SWAT team, the main paramilitary force of the impoverished Republic of Everon in 2035. Since the EDF is nascent, the ENP SWAT would have to deal with any armed crises.

IndeedPete released an updated version of his European BLUFOR Re-Texture addon on the BI forums.
The included Euroforce XEH - CBA Support addon provides CBA Extended Eventhandler support which is needed for example in ACE3, for the self interaction menu.

    Quote :
    This addon features a re-texture of Arma 3's NATO faction, both conventional and special forces in Altis, Black, Desert, Navy, Snow and Woodland camo schemes.
    It's about a fictional combined European force, founded in 2023.
    Notable operations are the ending of the Altian civil war in 2026, the deployment during the Balkan wars in 2028 as well as the Altis incident and follow-up events from 2035 until 2037.
    Today, EUROFORCE operates in over 50 countries on four continents.
    Notable ongoing operations are the peacekeeping mandate in Israel and Syria, the Japan Airlift, the Saint Petersburg blockade and the assistance mission on the US west-coast.
    Forces are organised in fleets, each capable of conducting operations by land, sea and air. Their command structure is loosely based on Mass Effect's Systems Alliance.
    This release comes with a teeny tiny showcase campaign consisting of five quickly thrown together missions about the redeployment on Altis, roughly two months after the events of the M.E.R.C.S. campaign.

    Updates here, replacing most of the cars and unit gear. More updated textures will follow, plus the ingsignia / squad.xml fixes.

    • Changed: Reworked the unit textures again, revised dirt patterns and details.
    • Changed: Reworked the car textures as part of a bigger vehicle overhaul. More will follow.

RedPhoenix released an updated version of his Refined Vehicles addon on the BI forums.

    Quote RedPhoenix :
    This mod tries to refine, optimize and perfect the vehicle physics due to totally remade config values, parameters and code.

    Does this mod conflict with any other mod?
    As far as I know not. This mod only overrides the vanilla A3 vehicles without changing any of its usability or function.
    It could happen that this mod interfers with AGM. But I have not tested it.

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.

    • Some changes to fog
    • Island presets improved
