Advanced Combat Environment 3 (ACE3)

ACE3 is the collaborative efforts of the former AGM and CSE teams, along with many of the developers from Arma 2's ACE2 project.

This mod is entirely open-source (we are hosted on GitHub[]), and everyone is free to propose changes or maintain their own, customized version as long as they make their changes open to the public in accordance with the GNU General Public License.

ACE3 is built modularly, thus a team can maintain its own tailored version, excluding a select number of components that they don't like, or which conflict with other addons. Larger components themselves, like the medical system and other core features also include various customization options, allowing mission designers and communities to tweak the overall experience.

hey there, ive been using ACE for a long time but recently on the server im playing on we have had an issue of random players being 1 tapped as the ACE settings are not applying. It appears that when people fully relog it fixes this issue however is quite annoying. Does anyone know why this is happening?

Не происходит захват цели пусковых установок Титан Компакт, Джавелин (CUP и RHS). Убирал все моды, оставлял только ACE и CBA, ванильная пусковая установка Титан Компакт отказывалась захватывать движущуюся цель и вообще стрелять. Титан MPLR работает отлично, происходит захват воздушной цели и выстрел. Если убрать ACE, то все пусковые установки работают отлично. Удалял этот мод, переустанавливал его, проверял целостность файлов самой игры, переназначал кнопки в настройках как в основных, так и в дополнении ACE, ни чего не помогает!
