NIArms Core is the central core to the weapons sets released by NIArms for Arma 3. It contains mostly shared resources like magazine icons, some material templates and textures, sounds, etc. It’s required to run any NIA Arms weapon.
Why? Because some mods are going to share resources and that’s just how it is. It contains ALL the animation gestures for the NIArms mods, so if you’re using them for another mod, you’ll need this for those too.
Core will update with every pack going forth so be sure to check back here and get the latest version from time to time.
Common textures and UI Icons
Common animation data
To install the NIArms Core you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page
for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.
