NeoArmageddon informed us he released an updated version of his Map Builder Tool, an in-game 3D-Editor for terrain creation, on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    Map Builder is an ingame 3D editor for the game ArmA3 from Bohemia Interactive. Map Builders aim is to assist in the creation of object compositions for terrain creation (export to Terrain Builder), but it can be used for the creation of mission templates (SQM) and object compositions in the form of executable SQF-scripts. Map Builder is not a mission editor. It's sole purpose is the placement and manipulation of static objects. Map Builder is in Alpha state. That means it is not feature complete and definitly not bug free. But I try to polish every release, so Map Builder can be used in a productive environment.

    Map Builder 0.9 released.
    You can find the full changelog between 0.8 and 0.9 here:

    I will now start working on the version 1.0 branch. I have some really fancy ideas for the next version and I also want to incorporate some engine features/changes the recent release of the EDEN Editor introduced into to ArmA3.

    Also keep the feedback coming! And maybe someone wants to share some compositions and brushes with us.

PAxton submitted his pAx Description Builder application.

    Quote :
    I have made a simple easy to use application for making a Description.ext and it saves it in the mission folder you choose. It makes it easy to quickly get a mission up for testing multiplayer without having to go through what I consider annoying process of making a little file when your buddies are waiting for you to put your mission up and you realized you forgot it.

X39 released an updated version of the ObjectOrientedScripting on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    What is ObjectOrientedScripting (OOS)?
    OOS is a new script language that will be translated to native SQF meaning that it is 100% compatible with SQF.
    It makes it possible to develop modifications in an ObjectOriented way (thats why it is callen ObjectOrientedScripting ... ok i admit ... that was too obvious :P)

    Why would we want to stop using SQF?
    well ... its a quite complex thematic where most of it is personal choice thus i cant rly help you with this questions
    there is just one thing i can tell you:
    ObjectOriented Programming (in this case Scripting) has the benefit that youre (in theory) faster in developing scripts
    for some comparison, please read this.

    • Compiler: changed block native code
    • Compiler: Added "native(<instructions>)" specially for expressions
    • Compiler: Added SQF Call instruction
    • Compiler: Added missing detection for unsigned integer/double values in VALUE
    • Compiler: Added missing detection for >, >=, <, <= operations in EXPRESSION
    • Compiler: Added missing LOCALVARIABLE alternative for FORLOOP

    Thereby is a difference between Hackers / Bugusers or regular bans.

    This avoids the jumping between servers by hackers.
    The bans will be distributed to other connected servers within a few minutes.
