Task Force Radio


Pleased to present you new radio mod for Arma 3 - Task Force Radio. It connects you game to TeamSpeak (similar to ACRE).
It is totally new product, open source, used for PvP and COOP games with more than 100 players.

  • Simple to install and use, stable
  • Support for radio and direct speech (3D)
  • Ability to change direct speech volume
  • You able to hear radio and direct voice simultaneously (if player is close enough)
  • No map changes are required (ItemRadio will be replaced by personal radio, group leaders will get long range radio, a lot of vehicles have inbuilt radio)
  • 3 rifleman radios (one for each faction)
  • 3 personal radios (one for each faction)
  • 3 long range radios (one for each faction, backpacks)
  • 3 airborne radios (one for each faction)
  • Multiband radios
  • Underwater transceiver interface for divers
  • Simulation of underwater speech and radio communications (you can't use radio underwater, you can only mumble underwater, you may use Underwater transceiver, you able to use long range radio in submarine if part of antenna is still under the water surface)
  • Different audio effect for long-range and personal radios
  • Support for radio interference (because of distance)
  • Vehicles are classified into open and closed (isolated). If you are in an isolated vehicle, you will not hear voices from outside (and vice versa). However, if you turn out of the vehicle, you will hear voices both from inside and outside.
  • Ability to switch radio volume
  • Ability to use more than one radio
  • Spectator mode for dead players
  • Two modes - for PvP and for COOP
  • Automatic TS channel switch on game start
  • Ability to pick up radios with all settings saved
  • By default, radios of each faction use their own encryption codes, so you will not hear enemy talks, even setting the enemy’s frequency. To listen to the enemy’s net (and talk on the air) - it’s necessary by any means to capture an enemy radio station.
  • Ability to switch stereo channel for radio
  • Radio interference according to ground surface
  • API
  • Etc, etc, etc.

To install the Task Force Radio 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.
