Welcome to the Smooth Operators Arma 3 page. Below you will find the required mods to play on our server. As well as links to videos and guides that may help improve your arma game.
To play on our server you will need different mods depending on what "content mods" and other mods we are running also referred to here as presets. Content mods add things like factions with gear, weapons, and vehicles that reflect said faction. The factions we use are era specific like the Unsung mod which adds vietnam era factions or Star Wars Oposition which adds Star Wars factions. We also have other mods that add realism and gameplay mechanics. The presets are themed around specific content mods designed to work with eachother to mimic a specific time period and/or setting.
The mods are available on the steam workshop and I have convenient collections that you can easily subscribe to. All the mods we run can use up a lot of space so it might be best to subscribe to them only if/when you are going to be playing with that particular preset of mods. Simply go to the workshops page via the links below and at the top of the list click 'Subscribe to all' and steam will download all the mods automatically and keep them up to date. (You need to be logged into steam on the site to subscribe. It may be easier to copy the link and paste it into steams address bar to open the collection in steam which you will already be logged into and then you can subscribe to all mods.)
Below are the different presets with their associated workshop collections as well as their launcher preset. A launcher preset can be imported to the Arma 3 launcher and then set in the mods tab to automatically enable all the mods needed for that preset then you will have all the mods loaded you need in order to sucessfully join the server. There are mod presets for players and mission editors. Use the mission editor presets to make missions with.
To import a preset into the launcher go to the 'MODS' tab and click on the 'PRESET' button. A menu will appear click the bottom button 'Import'. A window will open allowing you to browse to a file or enter it's location. Paste the link/address/url for the preset you wish to import into the 'file name' box and press 'open' and it will import the preset. To enable it go to the 'Mods' tab and click 'PRESET' and select the preset you wish to enable. When enabled it will load all the mods for that preset. then you can launch the game and join the server for that preset and will have all the mods needed to join without any errors.
If you have any questions about how to install the mods and presets please contact Govik.
