Ares is a mod aimed expanding the tools available to Zeus so that it is possible to create more varied and compelling missions. The goal is to add simple useful functionality to Zeus without requiring any extra mods running on other clients or the server.

Ares is designed to work with dedicated servers which may be running missions that allow JIP and respawn. The new functionality it is aimed at running with trusted players in a structured mission and is not recommended for general 'public server' play.

For more help and information on how to use Ares check out the wiki at:

Ares is open source. Come help the project out at:

As of V.1.8.0 Ares requires @CBA_A3 for some functionality. Please ensure it is running alongside @Ares if you are using Zeus. Clients that aren't running @Ares (e.g. non-zeus players) do not need to run @CBA_A3.
You can download the latest version of CBA from the developer website here:

Is it possible to run Ares as a Server side only mod, or will all of the players have to download and install the mod?

Top work Anton!

+1 on the CBA_A3 requirement on the Workshop as a dependency.

I think this should be fixed in the latest version. At least it was for me. Also available from in case you're still updating manually.

It's something I have to fix. I'm going to try to put out a patch ASAP if that actually fixes it. Have to re-install ARMA first :)

@lopis - What exactly does that mean then? Is this something I can fix on my own to be able to place down build groups from Ares? Or..?

This was posted over in ZEC mod that allowed them to place compositions in zues mode

"BIS changed the requirements for compositions, which is why all thrid-party add-ons are currently broken.
Found the issue: Your individual composition classes (not category and subcategory) must contain the attribute "side = 8;"."

You should tag the CBA_A3 Steam workshop item as a required mod.
