Folk ARPS In-Game Tag (for ArmA 3)

Post by fer »

What is the Folk ARPS Tag?
It's something that allows you to wear FA clan-tags in game and puts the FA tractor symbol on vehicles that you crew. You can read all about it on the biki.

How do I get this thing?
Three and half steps, comrade:

Step 1:
You'll need to create a block of XML for yourself. Start by copy-pasting this chunk of code.

Code: Select all

	<member id="" nick="">
Fill in the values like in the example below (the red text is what you need to add/edit).

<member id="96561397275964217" nick="Azim">
<icq>azim1986 (Skype)</icq>
<remark>Best tractor insurance</remark>

Here's a quick guide to the various tags:
  • id: your Player-UID, always the same and irrespective of your selected character (see the biki for how to get your Player-UID)
  • nick: nick, the same as used with your selected character in ArmA 3
  • name: your "real" name (if you want), or your character name again
  • email: your personal email (if you want)
  • icq: your IM handle (doesn't have to be ICQ, can be Skype)
  • remark: Say something witty (or not). 128 char limit.
Note: If you don't want to include your email etc. just put N/A instead.

Step 2:
Send your XML block to a Host on Discord DM or by PM here, and it will be added to the file on the web host. Alternatively, open a PR to edit the file yourself!

Step 3:
In your ArmA 3 player profile, enter this URL in the field labelled Squad URL:

Code: Select all
Will this work instantly?
Assuming you have executed all these steps and your XML block has been added to the file on the server, it should work.

How can I see if my XML block has been added?
Just browse to and look for your name in the list.

Note: This URL is slightly different from the one FA uses for ArmA 2 - notice that it is: /xml3/

Will this help us cut down on armoured vehicle friendly fire incidents?
Probably not, comrade.
