Arma 3 - Updated Vest Mod

    Tinemem is working on some new vest based upon the BI vests from Arma 2: British Armed Forces DLC.

      Quote tinemem :
      These are not straight ports since they're heavily modified to the standard of a3 including updated rigging, weights, and positioning to better fit the models.
      I originally designed them for use with the OA coverall since it has a larger waist and required a thicker vest model, but they work well on almost all other combatant models. They're a little too big on civilians.
      As far as I know these are the first arma 3 mods to eschew shadow volumes completely and to only use shadow mapping. I'm trying to popularize that method so future mods will all have this superior form of shadow rendering.
      I will include the mlod so modders can study my named properties section to learn about shadows.

      Current wip release featuring beta version of the Osprey as mlods to give users option to edit it to version without shemagh or do other edits and improvements. Config files already properly set up in folder: osprey_shemagh.rar

Arma 3 - 1st Infantry Division - BCT

    Alpha Whiskey Romeo started working on the 1st Infantry Division - BCT based upon Alex's work.

      Quote Alpha Whiskey Romeo :
      First and foremost, this is my Division. It's the unit in which I currently serve. Given A3's timeline and associated units, I thought it was heavily lacking in the realism factor whence concerning the deployed forces.
      I tossed about utilizing the existing troops in the region - 173rd ABCT, 2nd Cav, and the 18th Engineer Brigade. I floated the idea of recreating said units, but ultimately decided upon my own.
      This modification/addon will not accurately depict any specific Battalion, Company, or unit, but will be a (fictional) recreation of a BCT or Brigade Combat Team centered in the Armaverse and the current timeline (kinda).
      The addon will use the default weapons and kit selection, and no custom weapons or configs will be utilized. As preferred, I'll leave the load-outs in the purview of the mission creators.

Arma 3 - USAF Air Asset Mod

    Fullerpj informed the community on the BI forums about the USAF Air Asset Mod which purpose it is to add a couple of the most used USAF aerial platforms to Arma 3.

      Quote Fullerpj :
      Im hoping that they will add some more flavor to the game just like John Spartan's F/A-18 and Peral's A-10C. This is a conversion mod and full permissions have been given by the creator of these models for upgrade and adding to Arma 3 and want to thank them for allowing us to port them. Ive been working with Peral who you all know is bringing the beauty A-10C into arma 3. He has been working extremely hard on the upgrade as well as the A-10C so please bare with us on the time frame. Our goal is to make the Assets as close to real life as possible and hopefully they will work well for your respective squadrons/brigades. At this time i will introduce the assets and what we plan on them doing:
      • C-17 Globemaster III and C-5 Galaxy
      • B-2 Spirit and B-1 Lancer
      • KC-135 Stratotanker
      • Future USAF Assets:
          - AC-130U
          - F/A-22
