November 2021 ModPack Update
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.
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.
