Axelius released an updated version of his RDS compatibility and Faction extensions for Leight's OPFOR Pack on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This is a couple of config files that adds RDS static weapons to Leight's OPFOR pack armies and adds Iraqi and Afghan Army to Blufor and ISIS, ChDKZ, African and Afghan Militia as Independent. The allocation of RDS weapons have been done with thought to what weapons each faction has or could have their hands on. Units inherit from Leight's OPFOR so it should work with the HLC config.

    Groups should work with ALIVE, but as I don't use it myself I cannot guarantee it and I have not tested it.

    • Fixed issue with AA units being assigned to AFR group by default, resulting in broken groups.
    • Added Mi-8 and pilot to Independent Chedakis
    • Added RDS static weapons to CDF
    • Fixed one mechanized group to only spawn with one BMP instead of two.

Z1 submitted his z1 Compositions.
Compositions can easily be spawned anywhere in a mission where needed.

    Quote :
    This will be a resource for object compositions by me, and anyone else who submits them to me. I won't be taking any from other peoples missions.

    This will be a object composition resource for mission makers (and me!).
    Currently just a big base (requires Karts and Helos DLC) and a small campsite for each faction. Will be adding more over time. The comps are in compostions folder. You will have to depbo the mission to get to them, but if you make missions you already know how to do that.

    If you're wondering "why?" compositions, basically once they are set up they can be placed/spawned anywhere and you don't have the object clutter all over your map in the editor.

Austin(medic) released the first version of his Basic AI Medic FSM on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This FSM creates AI behaviour to simulate a medic standing around in a base that will heal people that are injured inside the defined radius.

    Medic doesn't need any FAK's or medkits, he will auto-heal units once he is within 5 meters of them, or if he can't get to them, he will give up after a few minutes and the unit will be auto-healed.

    The unit probably won't stay in the radius for long, he will eventually begin to wander farther off from the first place he started as he runs around healing people.
