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:

This mod has always worked great for me, though I seem to be having an issue lately. I'll be playing for a while, then the ares options will disappear. I can't find a way to bring them back without restarting the game.

I suddenly managed to solve the "problem" with removing Ares: there are two checkboxes in Eden Editor that have to be untoggled to unbinarize the Mission file. Otherwise it is on purpose not editable. Afterwards I needed two minutes to remove it. So no offence I was bit upset, because I edited the whole night before. ... Thumbs up.

For people having problems with Ares being required for your missions unexpectedly: You can remove the requirement for Ares by going into the mission.sqm file in a text editor and removing it from the addons[] and addonsAuto[] arrays. Unfortunately, ARMA decides to add it there automatically when you have the mod loaded. I'm not sure why.

Ares is outdated, use Ares Achilles by "Kex" instead.
