Permitted (optional) client-side addons

Post by fer »

Are any of the addons listed on this page required?
No. all addons listed on this page are optional. You can choose to use all, some, or none of them in an FA ArmA 3 session.

Can I use any client-side addon in an FA session?
No. We are currently white-listing addons on the ArmA 3 server. Only the addons listed and linked to in this post are permitted (the server will not let you connect with other addons).

Permitted (optional) ArmA 3 client-side addons:

Available through Steam Workshop Not on Steam Workshop
  • TAO Fold Map - Allows you to view a quarter-size map on the move.
  • Ciaran's Apex LMG mag fix (Allows you to load 30rnd mags into the Apex LMGs) NOTE: mostly obsolete since the vanilla Magazine Proxies update
  • Push-to-hear - temporarily lower game sounds on key press (do not use at the same time as Selective Hearing)
  • FA_gps+ (by Head) - Returns the gps to the old ways in a2. DO NOT USE THE STEAM WORKSHOP VERSION.
  • FA_map - Defaults to white contour map instead of terrain map
  • FA_warname (by Head)- changes the names of the in-game weapons to their real life counterparts
For both FA_gps+ and FA_map, the Arma 3 launcher will attempt to unload them when connecting to the server. The mods can in fact be used - just override the launcher by selecting "keep loaded" for each mod.

Optional TeamSpeak 3 addons:
  • CrossTalk - allows you to add distortion and duck channels on TS3
