Tom_48_97 has submitted a very simple application able to check if the supported tools need to be updated/installed.
Quote : What is it? Introduction...
Some of you may knew I was working on such project. It was delayed, postponed because of lack of time, it has required more analysis and conception than planned... but, today, here we are.
The Community Tools Updater is a very simple application able to check if the supported tools needs to be updated/installed. If an update is needed, it downloads the new version from a depot maintained by the tool author(s) and install the newer version without asking a single question.
The main purpose is to provide to the modding community a simple method to install/update the tools they need without being forced to hunt news on all over the web and take the risk to download an outdated version (I saw this many times with Poseidon Tools). More, the risk of installing an outdated version is avoided by a simple fact: It's the tool maker that update the depot with his work, not a random person.
You may recognize some tools made by the community veteran Mikero and some other made by me.
Usage is very simple, just download it, extract where you want and use it.
What tools are supported?
Poseidon Tools (*)
TM4 Indenter (*)
(1) Fully supported (check version, install/update) (2) Partial support (check version, tool available in the local depot when populated)
(*) Will be supported soon (this tool is supported by the updater but the tool is not yet ready to be used with it)
Major_Shepardsubmitted an updated stable version of the LEA - Loadout Editor for Arma 3. If you already had the beta you can update the tool by using Check for Updates in the Help menu.
Quote Major_Shepard : LEA is a standalone application with the goal to simplify the customisation of player's loadout and mission edition.
It uses a full graphical interface and maximum automatised processes to help mission-makers and team players waste as less as possible time in editing loadouts.
LEA has the capability to read and rewrite mission.sqm files as well as generate SQF scripts into ArmA 3 mission.
The software is provided with @LEA addon for players to make their loadout at mission start-up whatever the mission running on server.
LEA can also help ArmA 3 team play thanks to its capability to easily share user profiles and missions through FTP.
Added: Addon importer: the addon extracter can now manage pbo compressed files with Elitness.
Added: Addon importer: support for addon with config.cpp instead of config.bin.
Fixed: Mission Editor: re-importing a mission may reset on/off script flag if set off on a named unit.
Fixed: Mission Editor: hide non assigned command may not work with unit and on/off script fag set off.
EMSI released his ArmaSeriesLauncher on the BI forums.
Quote : With this launcher you are able to run any Arma series game (like CWA, AA, A2, A2:OA, A3) with previously adjusted parameters and selected Mods.
Note that, this launcher was designed ONLY for my personal purposes, therefore it not contain any other for me unhelpful parameters or features.
I'm using it primary for all testing purposes (SP/MP/Addon design phase), therefore its design is minimalistic as can be.
Feel free to use it as you wish ... if you are satisfied with its functions of course.

Updater script (Updates all your arma servers at once, using SteamCMD)
Backup script (Simple script that can be run to make remote backups)
File UNlocker (Used to automatically unlock files in use by Arma3Server.exe)
Log Compressor (Compresses your old log files in zip containers)
Rebooter (Simple script that restarts your servers upon box restart)
Bux578 released an updated version of his open source tabler - Arma 3 Translation Helper on the BI forums.
Quote : I'd like to present to you a new tool I'm working on. It emerged from the need to translate a lot of modules of an Arma 3 Mod without having to go through the hazzle of editing every single stringtable.xml one by one. And to be honest: It's not fun to work with XML files.
tabler let's you define your mod working directory and parses every stringtable.xml file it finds in your mod's subfolders. From there you can view, modify or add translations and save all your changes back to the stringtable.xml files - with one click.
Fred41 released an updated version of his Arma Server Monitor tool on the BI forums.
Quote Fred41 : ASM is a little program, for monitoring some interesting values from multiple server (or HC) instances.
Different performance related values are displayed, simultaneously for multiple (up to 4) server instances, in a window.
The idea behind it, is to provide a fast and easy "state of health" overview at one go.
changed library name for callextension commands, in fn_ASM.fsm, to lowercase
Kamaradskisubmitted his Ahoy Notepad++ Arma Syntax Highlighter.
Quote : This is an Arma scripting (.SQF & .SQM) syntax highlighter to be used in Notepad++, specially for dark themes.
It is developed using the 'Deep Black' theme that is shipped with NPP, but will work for anything with a dark background.
This is a community project, and we will appreciate all your help to keep this updated and working. At the moment this is already the Syntax Highlighter with the most complete database, lets keep it that way and expand on this initial version as much as possible. Any input can be logged in the Issue Tracker or bigger input can be happily forked and imported with a pull request.
