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!
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.
Glowbalsubmitted an updated version of the Combat Space Enhancement mod which he released on the BI forums.
Quote : A few of you have send me PMs asking where I have been. It has been a while since you last heard from me on the BI forums. Unfortunately I have to announce that due to circumstances in the Arma modding community, it is no longer feasible for myself to continue work on CSE. I'd like to thank everyone for their support over the past year, it would not have been possible without you.
Coming with this announcement, I also release the for now last patch for CSE. The changelog is small however, as I did not have the time these past months to work much on CSE.
Eventually, due to the fact that the game and the environment of it change due to Bohemia releasing new updates, things changing, new awesome modifications being released in the future, features within CSE might no longer function over time. If the need arrives, there are other good alternatives available for some of the functionality we provided with CSE, such as AGM, made by a bunch of awesome people, who are very active in the Arma 3 modding community.
My thanks to everyone involved in the project, contributors, developers and users. It has been a blast.

Alexus informed us he released an updated version of the GAU-8/A Avenger by him and Zabuza on the BI forums.
Quote : Zabuza and I are proud to present you a mod we were working on in the last weeks: the mighty GAU-8/A Avenger for the A-164 “Wipeout”.
Since the release of the NATO close air support plane, we were missing the power of the real A-10, the role model of the A-164. With bringing the A-164 into the game, Bohemia introduced a gun which was neither able to destroy a simple APC nor really effective against infantry. So Zabuza and I, both passionate pilots, decided to see what we can do, and this mod is the result.
What does it do?
Basically the mod changes the 20 mm gun of the A-164 “Wipeout” to a more powerful version, the well-known GAU-8/A Avenger 30 mm gun of the A-10 aircraft. So in future you will be able to use the gun as it is supposed to: as a tank buster and for scaring the shit out of your enemy.
Things we changed
The following list presents all added/changed features:
changed the calibre to 30mm
increased muzzle velocity to 1030 m/s
increased direct and indirect hit damage
increased bullet spread
added 2 burst modes: “Low” (1.5s, 2100rpm) and “High” (1.5s, 4200rpm)
magazine size of 1174 rounds
changed weapon sound (featuring the typical GAU-8 “fart of death”)
new impact sound
smoke effect while shooting the gun
new impact effects (more smoke, flashing light of explosions)
removed tracers, only visible with NVG
the A-164 now carries 240 countermeasure flares
Quote : Get Classname is a script what allows you to get every classname (Inside your inventory or outside). You just wear it ingame or pointing on it, open the menu and click a button. It copies the classname into your Clipboard so you don't have to type it down.
