    May 2022 Modpack Update

    By LurkerOne, in Game news, , 0 comments, 1,667 views
    May 2022 Modpack Update
    After many weeks of hard work, it's here! The latest update to our main Arma 3 modpack. This modpack is the result of the fifth iteration of our Mod Testing Team process, and I would like to thank all who contributed for their hard work during the process. 
    Unlike previous iterations, we are not rolling out any new factions. The focus this time is on refreshing the maps that we have, as well as giving out some great new options for both players and Zeus' to enhance missions.
    On the weapons side of things, we now have a UAV drone that comes with attachable weapons, the KA-137 UAV mod.
    On the vehicles side, we now have a Landing craft that can be loaded with vehicles and/or troops to give Zeus' more options for beach landing missions or similar, we are also adding in the Hatchet H-60 Pack, this gives more UH-60 models for Zeus' to use in mission, these birds have a more involved operation procedure for those pilots that want more immersion, with the caveat that Zeus' be willing to offer the RHS version if asked.
    For Zeus', we have a couple of things for you. First we have the Smarter tanks mod, to try and make the AI smarter in their use of tanks, whether it be the type of shell to use in the main gun or their tactics against infantry/other tanks, along with the O&T Expansion mod to give mission makers greater access to objects that otherwise are hidden in the game engine
    In the last few months, there hasn't been much in the way of updates to the mods in our modset and we had to remove one mod due to broken updates. As a result, despite the number of mods increasing, the modset has only grown by a modest ~1607 MBs
    Current (November) Modset Size (MB):    72947.6
    New Modset Size (MB):      74580.4
    Removed Mods (MB):    4053.1
    Current (November) Mods Count:    70
    New Modset Count:   80 (6 Removed, 16 added)

    Anyway, onto some useful information. The modset will be live on FK 1 from Monday, the 2nd of May.
    Below you will find a full list of what's come in, but the important parts are next: Mod Presets!
    Mod Preset & Installation
    The simplest way to get the new modset ready will be to import our new official modset into the Arma launcher
    Second Server
    FK2 has been setup with the new modset for testing, the modset above can be used on the server and from the go-live date the same modset will be used so you do not have to download 2 different modsets. The password on FK2 has been reverted back to the same as on FK1
    Mods Added and Removed

    Mission debrief
    The staff team has decided to switch how post mission debriefs will be done. Here are the three main changes:
    Stricter approach to how after mission debrief is done in TeamSpeak immediately after mission end. They will now be more structured Debrief thread is getting more structured as well. New channel on Discord for feedback for the last day's mission. New Mission-Maker/Modder tag
    The staff team has decided to add a Mission-Maker/Modder tag to recognize those members who contribute new content or modified content to the FK community and/or the Arma community. This tag does not have any trainers nor evals, a new tagholder needs to fit the requirements stated below and be chosen by a current tag holder and voted on by the CM's.

    Requirements for the Mission-Maker/Modder tag:
    Needs to be a REG+ Is an upstanding member of the community At least one of the following: Authored at least one mod on the steam workshop Changed at least one mod on the steam workshop Created at least two missions from scratch or used a mission-making framework that has been played in FK or hosted on FK servers Congratulation to the first five awardees which are: @cineafx @johnb43 @Garfield @ThePointForward and @Malbryn

    November 2021 ModPack Update

    By Garfield, in Game news, , 2 comments, 2,563 views
    November 2021 Modpack Update
    After many weeks of hard work, it's here! The latest update to our main Arma 3 modpack. This modpack is the result of the fourth iteration of our Mod Testing Team process, and I would like to thank all who contributed for their hard work during the process. 
    Unlike previous iterations, we are not rolling out any new factions. The focus this time is building up on some of the factions we already have, as well as giving out some great new options for both players and Zeus' to enhance missions.
    3CB Equipment and Units both make their return. One provides a bunch of high quality uniforms for British Forces, and the other helps out with having some more AI units that can be placed, already equipped with the BAF stuff. We are also adding in some new options for any scenario post Vietnam (Gulf war etc) with the introduction of DHI Uniforms.
    On the weapons side of things, we are now switching over to the latest NI Arms All-in-One. This includes the ill-fated XM8 family of rifles, as well as opening up the historical side of things with the M1941 Johnson LMG. We are also bringing in another weapon pack in the form of BC Weapons Pack. There are some weapons that are duplicated in other mods, but it does also give some new options that we don't see very often. This includes both new and older stuff.
    For Zeus', we have a few things for you. First, we are rolling out some new sounds, in the form of the Zeus Immersion Sounds mod. As it says on the tin, it will help you tailor your experience for  more immersion. We are also giving you the option for some Electronic Warfare. This should open up some new options for objectives.
    And finally, if you have always wished that your RPG carrying troops would actually fire at groups of infantry, LAMBS might be able to help you out there...
    As for some of the smaller pieces, we are adding Enhanced Movement into the modset. Over the first few weeks, the settings for the mod will be adjusted for balancing reasons, and as with all things... If things don't seem right with the settings, please let us know.
    In the last few months, we have had a number of mods in our modset grow in size a fair bit. As a result, despite the number of mods changing significantly, the modset is only increasing by ~140MB.
    By popular demand, your passwords will be hidden by default. This should not impact any other mods you use to give the same effect.
    Current (April) Modset Size (MB):    73112.8
    New Modset Size (MB):     73254.07 
    Removed Mods (MB):    11388.8
    Current (April) Mods Count:    58
    New Modset Count:   70 (13 Removed, 26 added) (Was initially 71, but has been updated to reflect changes)

    Anyway, onto some useful information. The modset will be live on FK 1 from Monday, the 8th of November. Updates to our own internal mods will be happen earlier that same day to avoid impacting Main missions on the Sunday.
    Below you will find a full list of what's come in, but the important parts are next: Mod Presets!
     
    Mod Preset & Installation
    The simplest way to get the new modset ready will be to import our new official modset.
    Instructions on how to do this can be found here. Remember we will be using this Modset starting on 8th November.
     
    Second Server
    Because FK Mods is still being used for main missions until release date, if you want try out the new mods on the second server in the meantime you will need to use the FK 2 PRERELEASE Week Preset (No longer required 07/11). Please only use this preset if you want to try out the new mods on FK2 before full release on FK1, where both servers will use the main preset from the above point.
     
    Mods Added and Removed
    Added
    3CB Equipment 3CB Units Anizay Backpack On Chest Redux BC Weapons Pack This has been removed from the modset Bornholm Breaching Charge Crows Electronic Warfare DHI Uniforms & Equipment Enhanced Movement Rework Extra Map Icons Ihantala Ihantala Winter Kujari LAMBS_RPG NIARMS All In One (The official one) Project Lightning Pulau Summa Suursaari Zeus Immersion Sounds

    Huge thank you to the CM Team, Tech Team and Mod Testing Team for all of their hard work putting this together.
    Remember that our staff are all volunteers and that FK Gaming is run solely on donations. If you'd like to donate to our platform please visit https://www.fkgaming.eu/donate/
