Gliptal released an updated version of his TPW Settings on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This small utility provides a simple and efficient graphical interface to configure TPW MODS for ArmA III. This collection has proven to be borderline essential for a thorough enjoyement of the game, owing to the life it brings to otherwise barren and uninhabited islands.

    The utility acts as a graphical version of the package's TPW_MODS.hpp configuration file. Since it is coded in Java the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is required: on most PCs and Laptops it should be installed by default, in doubt a check for the latest version can be performed here.

    • parameters matching CARS [1.46] PARK [1.15] FOG [1.39][1.47]

Macser informed us he released an updated version of his ArmaRig for Blender on the BI forums.

    Quote Macser :
    Two rigs to assist with generating RTMs:
    - One aimed at BVH export. (ArmaRig_BVH.Blend)
    - The other,a simpler version with Alwarren's Arma toolbox in mind. (ArmaRig_ATbx.Blend) ATbx meaning "Al's Toolbox".

    The weights and selections are carried over from the original A3 character example.So it's BI's weight mapping.
    Not mine.Although I haven't tried it in game,it should be consistent.

    There are certain limitations with the BVH format,but that shouldn't stop you from creating something decent.
    The BVH rig is a bit more complex than i would like.But it's necessary to accommodate the export process.
    The downside is the need to remove the many extraneous bones on import to O2.Until someone can come up
    with some way of filtering this,either on the Blender or O2 side,it's something I can live with.

    Given that the rig already observes Al's naming convention,there's no need to remove any extraneous bones.The Arma toolbox takes care of this on export.

    • I moved the forearm bones onto the first bone layer. This should help correct potential collapse when rotating the hand forward( palm to the back, as opposed to the front).

Tophe submitted an updated version of his Arma Dedicated Server Tool.

    Quote Tophe :
    The Armed Assault series allows an amazing array of settings to freely customize dedicated servers.
    This means you will have to edit quite a few config files to get it running the way you like.
    TADST is a tool that will greatly simplify this. All you need to do is to choose the settings you like. Then the application will create all necessary files according to your settings and start the server with the appropriate arguments.

    • New: Settings for Max Ping, Max Desync, Max Packet Loss, Max Disconnect timeout and Kick Clients On Slow Network.
    • Improved: Updated some tooltips

Austin_medic released an updated version of his AUSMD Editing Tool on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This tool is a combination of a few smaller programs that can help speed up some repetitive tasks by generating SQF code based on the parmeters you enter. This oculd also help by preventing you from making accidental typos and breaking the command/function you are trying to use.

    • Automatic updating, the program will periodically check if the server has a newer version of the program and will then download and notify you that a new version is availiable.
    • Touched up a few things in description.ext editor
    • Fixed SQF analysis so it properly functions (and also searches up to 6 sub-folder depth!)
