Here is my first ArmA3 addon, a blackop / swat units type addon.
The units feature the A1 kevlar helmet with goggles and a custom mask face. The face is set by Identities to the AI so if you want to use the face yourself you have to go to your profile and change the face to MaskFace01 or define an identity in your mission in the description.ext and link it to the player.
I didn't include nvgs on the units since I didn't like the look on the helmet.
Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:/Program Files/Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/
64-Bit - C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/
After extraction it should look like this:
Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/@your_mod_folder_nameYou can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder.
You'll also need add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:
You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.
And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!
When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods.
