Nice series of screenshots Meng.  Are these singleplayer missions or is this co-op multiplayer?

These are all single player...basically I play in the editor.

Gotcha.  That's a good idea.
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.

Don't know what mods they were using, but Rimmy and various friends played a Market-Garden map in Arma3 recently:

ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

Wargame review on the new DLC: https://www.wargamer.com/reviews/arma-3-contact/

Seems pretty underwhelming, but I'll play through it regardless.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

If yer lookin' for the general, I know where he is...

   The signals thing sounds interesting -- but a little above the scale of ARMA at least for WWII (where signals intelligence would be used at the divisional level or above).  I guess knocking out the other side's listening posts could be an objective (like the Australians did at Thompson's Post during second El Alamien when they captured most of the DAK's signals experts one night).

^ I do quite like the idea of that.  Great screenshots, btw -- moreso than the new DLC, they've been my inspiration to reinstall Arma 3 and load up some WW2 mods ;)

I imagine that this has already been asked but... what are the good WWII mods.
Thanks.

  I got faces of war which seems to include the remains of forgotten fronts plus Last Days of the Empire.  I also ended up with whatever GIEST is (I think by getting Osttruppen) and also the Czech 1938 army which also covers Germans for 1938-1945.  You end up with a ton of maps and plenty of infantry in all kinds of uniforms and the focus varies widely.  You can't get the US 2nd Infantry Division for example, but you can get lots of weird Ukranian and Kazak units.  I'm not sure what I'd recommend exactly.  The  maps are a mixed lot and the equipment is spotty and redundant at the same time.

https://www.dsogaming.com/news/major-mass-effect-star-wars-mods-arma-3/

The Opposition Team has released two major mods for ArmA 3 on NexusMods. The first mod will get you into the universe of the Mass Effect. On the other hand, the second mod brings a huge number of models, weapons, ships, units and vehicles from all the Star Wars Episodes, stories and series.

Going into more details, Mass Effect Opposition will let you enjoy a cosmic adventure in the Mass Effect universe. Players will be carried across the galaxy, from the Protean Empire to the invasion of the Reapers in 2186. Players will fight in battle during the Krogan uprisings, and choose their side during the Morning War. Additionally, players will participate in the First Contact War and the Skyllian Blitz, repel the attack of the Geths on the Citadel and save the colonists from Collectors.

The Star Wars mod, on the other hand, adds 75+ weapons, 300+ uniforms, 12+ Alien races, 60+ Vehicles and Spaceships, 16+ Heroes, Force Lightning/Push/Jump /Heal, Lightsabers and 450+ Custom Objects. As such, and with this pack, players can create their own Star Wars scenarios in ArmA 3.

Do note that both Mass Effect Opposition requires CBA and Zombies and Demons. Star Wars Opposition also requires SWOP_ACE3, CBA and TASK_FORCE_RADIO. Also note that these mods are huge. The Mass Effect Total Conversion Mod is 3.1GB in size, whereas the Star Wars Mod is 6.6GB in size.

These have been around for a long time. The Star Wars one is very cool. I think I posted about it somewhere in the deep dark depths of this thread.

EDIT: it used to be available through the workshop on steam...is that no longer the case? For some reason, there is always so much drama and controversy surrounding star wars mods.
