Server side weapons? Auto mod download?

17 posts in this topic

Hi,
I wonder if it's possible to run weapons mods just server-side or (if it's not) to make client's Arma to automatically download missing mod?

Thanks

To be honest; Since 'nobody' actually plays Arma without modding it, I don't see why Bohemia don't just do exactly what you say. Make a launcher that allows players to just Click on a server and download the mods needed.

I don't see it either why they haven't done that already. It would make life much easier for most players...

I would love if it would download the required the mods from workshop like other games do! Would make updating a lot easier since everyone would update the files when a new update is released.

Make clients auto download files. Hah! Nice one. Call of Duty 2 had it back in the day. Super simple concept, wish BI would implement this but it most likely won't happen...

This exists, its called Arma 3 Launcher www.arma3launcher.com
If you have a mod pack and want to have it added just make sure you have full permission to be using any "Borrowed mods".

When a player joins your server running mods the launcher detects this and gives you the option to download said mod files.

This feature would make modders lives so much easier and you would get random people trying to join saying "Well i have the exile mod why cant i join your server?" Well there silly i have modded the original exile and put more mods with it goto my website and download it.
