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
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
