Engima released an updated version of his TypeSqf Editor on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    A script editor for SQF scripts. The most important features are:
    • Syntax checking
    • Syntax highlighting
    • Share and download community made content via the CPack service. (I named it CPack - in Visual Studio they call it Nugets).

    The TypeSQF editor along with its CPack system (for sharing content between script editors) makes it real simple to create missions, even for unexperienced programmers. The CPack system lets you inject other authors work into your mission, and the editor keeps track of the logic in your code, alerting you if something is erroneous or suspicious.

    • Files associated with TypeSqf can now be opened in TypeSqf when double clicked in the File Explorer.
    • Checked all script commands and corrected erroneous signatures for a lot of them.
    • Added description, syntax, parameter names and parameter types in auto completion for all script commands.
    • All script commands with signatures and description are now in an XML file and read when editor starts.
    • Fixed: Files created by TypeSqf sometimes end up in erroneous locations.
    • Fixed: Stability issues.
    • SQX: Compile errors and warnings are now being displayed during compile.
    • SQX: Fixed: A lot of bugs in the compiler.
    • SQX: Fixed: Not allowed to "spawn" methods.

Bludski released his Bludclot's Buldozer Cursors on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    Hey guys! If you are anything like me you have a love and hate relationship with Buldozer.
    My main pet peeve ever since I started making terrains over a year ago has been precision of placing objects and selecting them within BD.
    Well here is my cure. I've made a few high precision cursor models that will let you place and manipulate the smallest of objects, Runway lights and similar.

    There are currently 3 different ones but more will be added. Personally I only use the small one depicted here.

Mind released an updated version of his ASCT – Server managing tool on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    Arma Server Control Tool can be used to execute SQF scripts on server directly, by using standalone server side application. Idea behind this project is to solve the problem that, in many cases it is hard or straight impossible for server administrator to execute certain scripts on server, also it most likely involves joining server with game client. A lot of times server admins are not able to quickly react to some event on server due to absence of a PC with installed arma nearby.

    With ASCT all you need to do is to login to your server with remote Desktop or TeamViewer, right click on script.sqf and select ASCT Execute.

    Target audience:
    This tool supposed to be used only on server side. it is made for server admins and developers. Currently this program can be used only on windows platform.

    I have another tiny update for you guys. it is for notepad++ plugin only, so I figure out i will silently "replace" version`s "asct.dll". So is latest version, download link updated. So this update allow executing only portion of text from currently opened file. As with "Execute" command, "Execute segment" will use default instanceID.

    • allow executing only portion of text from currently opened file. As with "Execute" command, "Execute segment" will use default instanceID.

Mokey submitted his A3BANS program.

    Quote :
    A3BANS allows for registered server owners to submit bans globally to try and stop hackers, cheaters, and exploiters from playing on servers in ARMA III. It also allows for non-registered users to download and search global bans.

    The point of the project is to Globalize bans, that deal with hacking, cheating, or exploiting, across all servers. It is a community driven bans list. All server owners will be able to add and remove bans. Authentication and security protocols were taken in the program to protect the servers information and your information also.

    How it works:
    Any server owner/personel can download the program and download, search, or view the bans.
    Registered Server Owners can remove and add global bans, with proof.
    Falsified bans will be removed and if you are sending falsified bans to the database, your account will be disabled and all bans you have posted will be removed.

    The point of this program is to try and make all ARMA servers 100% clean.

    Abuse of this application will not be tolerated, at all!.

    • Any User:
        - Search Bans
        - Download Ban List
        - Copy Ban List
    • Registered Server Owners:
        - Submit Global Bans
        - Remove Global Bans
        - Search Bans
        - Download Ban List
        - Copy Ban List
