      ARMA 3 Sync Update   07/14/2018

      ARMA 3 Mods Updated! This update restructures our mod package, previously the mods would get added to either GOLIslandsA3 or GOLAddonsA3 and this resulted in a fairly large mod folder. Before downloading this update it is recommended that you delete your current mods first because A3S doesn't always clean up the old mods. To do this you simply need to head to the location that you downloaded the mods to for example: \Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3 and delete all of the folders that start with @ The benefits of the new structure include: Being able to see what mods we are/aren't running To give you the option of disabling addons that you don't want to run To have the option of adding mods that some may like to run for example: Blastcore To have the option of downloading the mods outside of the GOL Repository for example: Steam workshop or directly from armaholic To have the option of creating campaign specific mod pack presets so users can select the mod set preset and only the mods required for the campaign will be loaded - this will mean better performance. This can be set on the server side so that the preset is made available to everyone for everyone to select.

      An example of this is that we are playing as the Russians against middle-east rebels. Only the mods required for this would need to be loaded and this can be determined by a mod preset - are present there is only one mod preset which is called "ARMA 3 GOL Mod Pack". Another preset can be added called "Battle for the Falklands" for example and then only the mods for this campaign will be loaded. Obviously by only loading the mods for this campaign would mean better load times and performance.

      Keep in mind that as a mission maker that if you save your mission while all of the mods are running then some mods will added themselves as required mods in the mission.sqm meaning that if you try to load the mission again later it will fail because it believes that the required mod is missing. When making the missions only do so with the required mods - if you do mess up then there is the option of opening the mission.sqm in notepad or some other editor and removing the mods from the required mods selection. The download size can be reduced if you choose to manually move the mod files but if you don't have much experience with the mods then please just delete the existing mods and download the mods fresh. Any problems then post a message in the technical support thread and myself and others who can will be happy to help   Download size:  35.44GB

  1. Question is why the hell wont this go into a normal video when I post a link like it usually does? Some kind of sorcery at work.... I think
  2. As the title suggests, I have gone and done something seen by many as... odd. I just spent £400 on a couple of new bits for the PC to enjoy my Arma 3 some more New processor i7 4970k (upgrade from 3770k) and also the ASUS Sabertooth z97 mark 2 (from P8z77v-pro) Downloading and benchmarking to commence soon.... hopefully will be ready by Saturday my internet is bad but not that bad... Pics and stuff also to come.
  3. Hello Lads I have been having some thoughts over the past few weeks about trying to sort out my career to get to take it to the next level so to speak. As some of you may not be aware I work odd hours due to my role and it does take a lot out of me. I think this has built up and put me in a position where I am now, I don't get much time to relax and go and see friends due to commitments not only to work, but the clan itself. I want to be able to give it my all but fell that I can right now, work is a priority to me. As soon as this is all in shape and I am happy with the situation in my personal life I will return It has been a real pleasure playing with everyone in GOL and I really mean it when I say GOL has been the best Arma clan that I have been a part of (even better than my own one which I ran). We have had some pretty funny moments like super satchel charges, the happy birthday video!, prop hunt, TTT, PC talks with "The Lord Engineer" during ops ... I could go on. I will return when the time is right as long as you all would let me. You can catch my on YouTube/ Facebook/ Steam etc if you want to stay in touch and chill out sometime Airsoft vids will carry on as usual Chow for now! PFC IAmTheGaz Signing off (for now)
  4. Annoying as hell, the video wont display below! http://youtu.be/PEcbcyUOaU0
  5. Unfortunately not mate, working until pretty late. may be back mid way through or towards the end. We need more missions on N'ziwasogo on Arma 3 that map looks beautiful!
  6. This is my friday night sorted I'll play it later!
  7. Looks good, so just a quick question if I follow the steps to update the mods and I have yet to update my previous GOLaddons and GOLislands pack from last weeks update will this do It automatically so to speak?
  8. Well I did originally join GOL for arma 2 but with that being said that wont stop me participating Arma 3, i'm sure Arma 3 will be a great transition when all the little bugs are fixed both with the game and with scripts etc but I feel at the moment Arma 2 is probably best for the most part at least until these issues are sorted But I digress, If you need any help with testing missions or scripts R4IDER then give me a poke sometime, i'd be more than happy to lend a hand as i'm sure many others would be to!
  9. Appreciate what you are trying to do mate when it works it will be great perhaps we can try it for the Friday op to make sure it works on a relatively large scale?
  10. OBJ 1: Move into a town and eliminate Secret Santas evil helpers OBJ 2: Ambush the Reindeer convoy OBJ 3: Find and Destroy Secret Santas hideout Weapon models would be candy canes with the pretend gun sounds (like the ones you would do as a kid pew pew) AI would just magically die in front of you, RPG's (Rocket Propelled Gifts) etc... It seems like it would be funny in my mind lol
  11. Lets send some xmas cheer in the form of thousands of bullets! yatatatata!
  12. You're alive?!
