VAA - Virtual Arsenal Anywhereby
It has been brought to our attention this addon is almost completely the same as the Personal Arsenal by Drake.
Both Drake and WebSlug claim to be the rightfull owner of the works. The addons are pretty much identical but upon checking we also saw that creating this kind of addon has pretty much one appraoch which both addons do.
We can only advice our visitors to check both addons and see for themselves wether they prefer the one or the other:
This mod for the Arma 3 game allows you to use the Virtual Arsenal anywhere. Later versions of this mod will most likely use an alternative method to access the arsenal. For the moment you can access the arsenal by pressing the "U" KEY.
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.
When in game, press the "u" key to access the virtual arsenal. It works in single and multiplayer.

No bugs have been observed so far. Since this addon is beta I'd be grateful for any feedback. If people like it then I'll continue to work on it.
