Spyder Addons


A collection of modules and scripts designed to aid mission makers in adding depth to their missions.

I made this mod to help mission makers who cannot or do not want to script, add increased depth to their missions with ease. If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them. Unfortunately, I do not have the time to grant every request, but I love to hear suggestions that would make your life easier.

For an in-depth description of features, please view the readme here

Civilian Interaction

To install the Spyder Addons you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.

Included files:

Recommended and/or optional addons and mods to use with Spyder Addons:
- ALiVE - Advanced Light Infantry Virtual Environment
ALiVE is only required for certain modules (currently Civilian Interaction and Insurgency) due to them being directly integrated into ALiVE. SpyderAddons can be ran without ALiVE but these modules will exit if ALiVE is not running. All other modules are only dependent on CBA.

Known issues:
- Civilian interaction has one partially mis-functioning question
