Swedish Forces Pack will no longer come with islands, we will release them separably due mostly to big file size and not as often updated as the rest of the pack.
For now we are working on three islands, Sturkö, Rosö and Wamako.
Wamako was if not the first at least one of the first islands for ArmA3. It was originally meant only for internally figure out how to work with arma3. It will come with some updates in the future.
Rosö will be our main island, we will make new objects, buildings and features. The island have been designed "from scratch" based on different areas in Sweden its not an accurate copy of any place but instead features both military bases, airport, military runways, harbours, a good road network. What we have in mind is making an island that offer many mission possibilities. Also includes a minor island in one corner in order to have a base to "launch that invasion" from. I really enjoyed that part on Everon.
Sturkö, this is an island known for some since we had it in ArmA2. Its based on real world data.
Mostly known for the events in which a Soviet submarine was discovered to have run aground, just a few miles outside a Swedish naval base.
* Sturkö (Requires all in arma or similar)
* Wamako (No other requirements.)
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.
