Macser informed us he released an updated version of his ArmaRig for Blender on the BI forums.
Quote Macser : A constrained Ik rig built in Blender.Aimed at A2/A3. Intended for use with Alwarren's Arma toolbox.
Static and hand anims can be exported direct to PBO. Dynamic animations like walk/run cycles can be also be exported directly with some extra work.
I'm not an expert on the internal workings of Blender.Nor would I consider myself a grade A rigger/animator.So bear that in mind if you find mistakes or bugs.
I created a slightly different version of the rig and updated the first page.
The parenting for some of the bones has been removed, and replaced with "childof" constraints. This allows the bone's parenting to be switched by the animator. It also allows for keyframing of the influence value. Practically this means you can stack the same constraint more than once for the same bone and keyframe what's called a "handoff" during an animation. Where the bone can switch parenting during the sequence. Either locking to an empty object or another bone in the rig, and back again.
If you see the child bone pop out of position when you initially switch the parent, don't panic.
Just hit the "Set inverse" button. The bone's position will be updated relative to the new parent.
An important note while using the childof constraint. If you decide to change the parenting via the constraint, remember to change it back to the appropriate parent when editing a different sequence. Each animation records the bone transforms with the parenting used at the time. For most of the stuff you'll do you may never bother changing anything, in which case the rig operates as usual.
Animations (actions) created with the previous version (Version 6) may not work correctly out of the box with this one. So bear that in mind.
CCT Primosubmitted his ARMA Control Client and Server application.
Quote : So, im Primo from Combate Tático Brasil and one of the few problems we'd in all these 8 years together is that we do use alot of addons to make our simulation more accurate. But that takes some time, and some support for each new people we attended to.
So, ARMA CONTROL comes with the idea of providing a painless/supportless manner to approach and help new people coming into your house/community/clan easily, without having the pain to download eveyr addon one by one and either needing more programs to launch each mod correctly.
This is still a BETA program, and the features it already have available are:
You can load up your ARMA folder and choose from your list of addons
The application will auto-update each time when you starts it and it finds a new update.
Arkensor informed us K-Town released am updated version of his Arma Intellij Plugin on the BI forums.
Quote : Arma Intellij Plugin is a plugin developed by K-Town (me) for Intellij IDEA. Intellij IDEA is a Java IDE developed by Jetbrains and offers many amazing API's for creating support for custom languages to be used inside the Intellij editor.
Intellij is free, but I recommend reading the license agreement regardless.

Larrow released an updated version of the Ultredit/UEStudio Syntax highlighting on the BI forums.
The Ultredit/UEStudio Syntax highlighting have previously been released and updated by Kronzky and W0lle.
UltraEdit Syntax highlighting for Arma 3 scripts (sqs, sqf, sqm and biedi), works of course also with UEStudio.
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.

Tophesubmitted 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.
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!)
