The next version of our Arma 3 Modpack is being released today! A Zip file containing presets for our public and private modpacks can be downloaded here: https://downloads.7cav.us/arma/7cav_preset_090821.zip. Please download it to import the presets and download the mods required as soon as possible! You can then use those presets through the Arma 3 Launcher to download the mods and launch your game. More information about the modpack can also be found at our Wiki at https://wiki.7cav.us/wiki/7th_Cavalry_Arma_3_Mod_Set.
For the public modpack, our primary focus was adding more essential mods to help showcase the Cav while keeping the overall mod count low enough to still be able to function with the technical limitations of the "set up mods and join" function on the Arma 3 launcher. We hope that this will help to make the server still easily accessible to new players and also give Cav members more mods from our private modpack to be able to host SP's and perform most of their MOS' duties with more equipment that we are used to having available in our private modpack. This is always a hard balance to strike, but we think we've done the best we can that will make the most people happy balanced with these technical limitations. The new modpack launch today will also come with a new set of Domination missions that we hope will reinvigorate enthusiasm on our Arma 3 Tactical Realism Public Server!
