[SP/MP]Dynamic Universal War System

The DUWS proceduraly generates a mini campaign, with all the enemy zones to capture being randomly generated. Or you can also choose to manually place your HQ and the enemy, and easily make your own unique campaign. The key here is to have maximum replayability, where the player can setup his own campaign or let the DUWS create everything randomly for him. You can play with the DUWS on any island you want, you just have to rename the .pbo file.

You can play the DUWS on any island you want, all you have to do is to rename the mission file, more info below.

*Play the way you want:
-Play as a lone wolf or as a SF team, using support assets and gadgets and perform side missions
-Control your personnal squad of troopers and fight against the OPFOR
-Control several squads, vehicles and supports and try to retake the island from the enemy
-...or a mix of all of them
*Persistent player stats througout the campaigns/missions, allowing the player to play a multi island driven campaign
*Unlock abilities throughout the campaigns as you gain experience (persistent)
*Pretty much every location is randomly generated on the map, from the HQ to the enemy zones and side mission locations.
*Random side missions, with names randomly generated
*Play the DUWS on any island you want to.
*VAS by Tonic (Armory)
*Several support options to unlock (UAV, Arty, Personnal FLIR, VAS, ...)
*You can define the HQ and/or the enemy zones, or just the HQ and let the DUWS generate the zones automatically. You can also let the DUWS create everything by itself. Basicly you decide the level of randomization there is.
*WARCOM(War Commander) system. BLUFOR forces will try to capture the island, war escalates as the campaign progress.
*Dynamic weather. At the start of the campaign, you may choose the type of weather (mediterranean, temperate, tropical, arid...). The weather will then be randomly generated according to these parameters.
*Full support of the High Command module

More info on:

1)get the .pbo from the first page of the topic (see link above)
2)put the .pbo in the 'missions' folder of arma3
3)rename the .pbo
example: SP_DUWS05b.stratis.pbo >> to SP_DUWS05b.chernarus.pbo
other examples: SP_DUWS05b.zargabad.pbo - SP_DUWS05b.takistan.pbo

Also, use the 'dev' .pbo, since High Command is now included in the normal version of ArmA3.

This mission can be played in coop. Regarding the nature of the DUWS, it must be run on a listen server. Does not work on a dedicated server. I suggest adding a password to your game, so only friends can join and no random guy will be able to trash your game.

If you have any question, make sure you read the ingame manual beforehand. You can access it in the map menu, on the tab DUWS manual.

Never had such issue even after cleaning 2/3 islands. Check yo server, it may be a big shit \o/

VAS is terrible and doesn't work efficiently, I could die while trying to grab a single missile/launcher. It's laggy and slow, and EXTREMELY UNRESPONSIVE. Please if you have any power to do so, could you please replace this with the Virtual Arsenal? I know for a fact that the virtual arsenal is EXTREMELY RESPONSIVE. Thanks if you care.

You can add more CP to initial game play like this:

First you'll need Atom text editor for free from Atom dot io.

Open up the file using Atom located in


107410 = arma 3 steam code

669083114957287281 = my code for the DUWS, I'm not sure if its the same for everyone.

Modify lines 6157 and instead of 60 add the number you want. It should still show up as 60 in-game but it will give you the amount you want. Otherwise, if you would like to have the numbers match up you'll have to change line 5857 and change the number next to the parenthesis.

Will you implement the Virtual Arsenal instead of the Virtual Ammo Box someday ?

Why do people still prefer this over Amalgamation? For those who don't know, Amalgamation is DUWS with much more implemented and much much more up to date.

Would love a update to this, anythink like this but better for single player.
SPOONER Jan 22 @ 1:15pm 
I was really expecting more from this by now, but I guess most workshop mods never make it past about 80%. It's dissapointing to always come back to the same and/or completely new bugs, and though it has promise I doubt I will ever see much of DUWS implemented in a fresh and fluid way.

how do you use VAS in this?
