ArmA 3 Hunting Mod


A new project in the works. There's a playable and mostly bug free version out already.

ArmA 3 Hunting Mod brings a rich bushcraft and hunting environment to ArmA 3. This content package made by various authors ensures you'll have hours of role play like fun traveling, hunting, putting together equipment, doing quests, making camps and much, much more.

- RPG and role play like singleplayer gameplay style, progress can be saved to continue at a later point.
- Mod put together from stuff found on Armaholic
- Hunger, thirst, sleepiness, and means to fight them.
- Engage in bushcrafting and hunting using an extensive arsenal of (old, new and modded) tools, weapons and items.
- Fully functional and customizable bows and arrows.
- Extra animals to hunt.
- Earn money through various means, and spend this improving your hunting equipment.
- Slow paced but challenging gameplay, and enjoyable experience for all.

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:
Steam\Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\@your_mod_folder_name\addons\

You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name1\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\

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.

Module Usage:
You find three new modules within the MISC module folder in the game editor

a. "rickb_a3items" (only needed once on the map / position doesn´t matter )
=> activates survival simulation (hunger & thirst) + simple jump script activation

b. "rickb_lootspawn" (place one for every loot area / position marks center of loot area)
=> activates lootspawn (4 categories civ/mil/industrial/civ guns) in the area (distance, kind of loot, chance of loot can be customized by clicking the module)
=> play around with the loot probability -> default is 7% which means: there is a 7% chance on each house position within the area you defined for that module
=> loot despawns when no player is around
=> not every kind of loot will spawn in every building

c. "rickb_customloot" (only needed once on the map / position doesn´t matter)
=> lets you define custom loot tables for each loot category => put your own items classnames in between the brackets like this: ["rb_handycam","rb_smartphone"]
-> smartphone and handycam will be the only loot spawned in this category

Known issues:
- Does not work in multiplayer (yet).
- Ambient rabbits can not be gutted, mod spawned rabbits can (to not waste ammo, only shoot rabbits in hunting areas).

Future plans:
- Multiplayer
- Snare traps
- More different animal types
- More missions
- A fully functional chicken pen
- Improved animal AI
