Small note - my group is switching to ACRE 2. I find it easier to use, ACE interactions help a lot, and as a crewman, you can call infantry on a telephone!

Something tells me you just copy pasted this :LOL:

IMO it's worth keeping project opfor.

Two mods i have been looking at: CUP Terrains 2.0 for Chernarus 2020 and RHSAFRF winter textures (only 100mb) for a short series of winter scenarios i would like to make.

Does editing ACRE2 in missions actually work unlike TFAR?
(Say i want to set up custom programmed presets? By looking at the documentation it looks much better than TFAR in that regard. TFAR scripting is so broken that you can't even set a default freq.)

We should probably come to an agreement on the topic of modern mods, so we can get to making missions using the new pack.

I like the modlist proposed by @Aurelius.
Might aswell add LAMBS RPG RHS to complete the compat mods. Having reviewed the factions i don't think project opfor is needed.

@DoubleD @Vartuoosi @Concord @Gnarly @Aurelius @holoween @Nathangun
Are there any concerns on the modlist, it does have quite a few Terrain mods which means bigger file size but greater possibilities for the mission makers. This modlist means that TFAR, CUP Units, CUP Vehicles and CUP Weapons can be deleted (unless @Vartuoosi wants to run his already made missions first).

For discussion after we have agreed on a modern modlist.
For a WW2 mod list i put out this suggestion:


I feel like this modlist gives the most bang for the filesize.

(If we end up agreeing not to use Northern Fronts, i can write an addon that adds unit presets for 1941-1942 for USSR and Germany using IFA3 gear. I like Northern fronts but it is quite a big mod filesize wise.)

Both Achilles and Zeus Enhanced are on the list. Aren't they going to conflict?
And what does ACEX even do? The ACE wiki page on it is barren.
No opinion on ACRE. I don't think I've ever used it on Arma 3.
I am for NF mods and against CSA
And I really want both NF and CSA.

https://ace3mod.com/wiki/featurex/
Mostly used for the headless client offloading of AI but the other features are useful. There are scripts and other mods to accomplish this as well. Some use ACEX solely for the ability to sit in chairs during briefings.
The headless client allows you to dedicate other CPU cores or other machines to offload the AI on to, so that you free up the main worker thread of the server. The list is from @Aurelius's unit so I'm not sure if they use it for the HC or for the sitting in chairs. One of the main advantage of ACEX implementation of the HC is that it's automatic.

When i run dedicated servers for friends i usually run 4 of my CPU threads for the game, another 4 for the server and the last 4 for a HC to handle the AI if the given scenario allows it.

I am on the fence on CSA. The only things i want from that mod is the Panzer I, II, III and early IV. But there is always the question if it's worth enabling a whole mod just for that. Most other assets you can more or less proxy with IFA3.

Both Achilles and Zeus Enhanced are on the list. Aren't they going to conflict?
Good question, i am not sure as it comes down to the load order. Zeus enhanced is a continuation of Achilles so there is a good chance it just overwrites it. But from my perspective it is indeed pointless to have both enabled.

We've had those mods from the start and they never collided. No issues.

As far as CSA, it brings vehicles which are bugged, weapons without animations, some sights work, some don't. Given that only six people are playing, and that CSA is about tanks, I see no future for it.

Just a quick PSA:
You used to be able to import a mod list with this option but now it only subscribes you too the mods and does not activate them.

Now you have to do it from this dropdown:
