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.

    • Added BIS_fnc_MP tool
    • Added a tool to open the scripting commands list on the biki.

Silola informed us he released patch version 1.05 of his X-Cam In-game 3D Object Placement Tool on the BI forums.
The archive we host has been fully updated with all the new files so you only need to download the version 1.05.

    Quote :
    X-Cam is an InGame 3D object placement tool with many different functions. All these functions make it much easier to place objects on any terrain.

    You can export your work as a terrain builder import file, but also as a mission or script file. So X-Cam supports both mapmakers, as well as missionmakers.

    • New: Alternate methode to start a frame selection
    • New: Terrain visualisation incl. some settings
    • New: Option to invert 4 different camera control functions
    • New: Split a Terrain Builder export file into different export files (object types)
    • New: Restricted start option (player name)
    • New: Option to search within the X-Cam object library only
    • New: One-step processing of multiple projects (incl. export)
    • New: Additional save option, if objects copied from different projects
    • Fixed: Press [Alt] during the secondary movement methode is active
    • Fixed: The export option > enablesimulation 'false' < saves wrong values
    • Fixed: Ghost objects after pressing the [ESC] key
    • Two object packages have been updated:
      • xCam_Metal (v098b)
      • xCam_Woodworks (v09b)

SilentSpike released an updated version of his Silent Map Converter on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    Silent Map Converter is a program used to convert SQM files into SQF files for ARMA 2/3 (particularly useful for headless client missions).

    This was my first programming project which I used in order to get comfortable with Python and various programming concepts.

    As such, the program isn't a full blown SQM parser or anything particularly sophisticated. It simply uses regular expressions to find and extract the information it needs based on the standardised output of the ARMA mission editor.

    Please note that if you have python installed then you can just run the script file itself. It behaves exactly the same as the executable.

    • Output SQF is now only compatible with ARMA 3 by default
    • Introduced -a2 command line argument to output SQF compatible with ARMA 2
    • Support for numerical config values using scientific notation
    • Minor fixes for unit heading, waypoint elevation and objects placed near each other
    • Minor output readability improvements
    • Minor optimization

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 :
    Today I want to present a little project I had laying around for quite some time but finally finished a working alpha. The project is called "Map Builder" and it is an ingame 3D-editor with the purpose of help in placing objects, compositions and vegetation when creating new terrains (kind of an improved Buldozer).

    This project is in an alpha-state. It is neither featurecomplete nor fully tested/bugfree. I am releasing a first unfinished alpha to collect feedback, ideas and bug reports. I want this project to be as open to the community as possible.

    Here is a preview/RC of the 0.7 update. It is not tested and might be unstable. I don't take responsibility for any damage/crash/dataloss/burning pets. Backup your project files!

    Changelog highlights:
    • All CTD should be fixed know.
    • Restructured the objects/Addons/packages. It should be more clear now which Addon to use for vanilla/AiA/JBAD etc.
    • All objects in "A3 Vanilla" can be used without adding AddOn dependencies to your exports!
    • A favorite object list!
    • A List with all used objects!
    • A lot of Multiplayer improvements. Thanks to ItsDonJon for testing.
    • Freelook is now on middle mouse button.
    • Heightadjustment is back on left + right mouse button.
    • Zoom with mousewheel.
    • Exports are exact again.
    • New project file fromat.
    • General improvements and bugfixes.

Major_Shepard submitted an updated version of the ArmA3Sync - launcher and addons synchronization software which he released on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    ArmA3Sync is both a launcher and addons synchronization software for ArmA 3. It is intend to be used by players, server administrators and ArmA 3 teams. ArmA3Sync development has been inspired from ArmA 2 Game Launcher (SpiritedMachine) and AddonSync 2009 (Yoma).

    • Management of custom addon repositories for FTP or HTTP (Web) servers.
    • Reliable and easily configurable addon synchronization with checking integrity of files (SHA1).
