The BW-Extended-Mod will fill the gaps in the BW Mod until new "Reinforcements" comes up from the real BW Mod Team.
We use reskinned and renamed original "Arma 3 - Vehicles" to realize a "more complete" German Army.
In our first Publication, the first gaps of the BW-Mod should be closed by using simple means (reskinns).
A worth mentioning highlight of our mod is the one of us for the Frogmen invented G36UW/ÜW. It has the characteristics of the American Diver-Weapon "SDAR" and can be used both above and below water.
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:
You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons and/or mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.
You'll also need to 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.
There is still much to do.
Please report us if you find errors.
After our first release, we still have a few surprises on stock.
