Description
Add-on description:

Ares Mod - Achilles Expansion, better known as Achilles, is a gameplay modification for Arma 3. It expands the Zeus real-time editor with many new additions as well as provides bug fixes.

Ares Mod - Achilles Expansion started as an expansion to Ares mod, which was created by Anton Struyk. Achilles became the de facto successor to Ares at the point the latter was no longer updated. Achilles has already grown into a splendid project, but new additions are still to come!

Required Add-ons:

- CBA_A3
- ACE3 (optional)
- Advanced Rappelling (optional)

Notes:
- The add-on is a modified standalone version of Ares Mod.
- DO NOT RUN this mod with Ares at the same time. All features from Ares are included anyway.
- ACE3 and Advanced Rappelling are optional, but are requiered to unlock certain additional features.
- Moreover, only Zeus need to have the add-on installed as it was the case for Ares Mod.

Please mention all the points below if the Author requests a detailed issue report:
1) Topic
2) Version of ArmA
3) *All add-ons that were running client side (give versions in parentheses if it's not the steam version)
4) *All add-ons that were running server side (server key does not count; skip if it was SP).
5) Environment (e.g. client on dedicated server / client on hosted server /server host/ SP)
6) Reproducibility (e.g. always)
7) Report step by step how the issue can be reproduced (can also be a video)
8) °Additonal Notes

*Unload as many add-ons as possible in your test. The usage of an additional addon is only justified if there is an indication of a mod conflict (e.g. the issue only appears when that specific mod is loaded together with Achilles).

°Put a tick for "Show Script Error" in the Arma 3 Launcher parameters section. If you see script errors, describe them in this paragraph.

Here is just an arbitrary example:
1) Throw smoke grenade hotkey does not work for RHS units.
2) 1.70
3) Achilles (steam); CBA (steam); RHS (0.4.1.1)
4) CBA (steam); RHS (0.4.1.1)
5) Client on dedicated server
6) only observed when the unit does not have a vanilla smoke grenade
7.1) Set up a dedicated server with TADST running Tanoa Game Master
7.2) Join server and take Game Master slot
7.3) Place US Army Soldier, select him and press C.
8) Error message observed: "No smoke grenade available".

If you are using ACE3, you can only access the aresenal via ACE interaction menu, not the scroll menu.

@Mogelix (AU)
Thx for the hint. We will have a look into it.

Arsenal tool won't work for me, I'm unable to put full or limited arsenals on crates or objects

Since the latest update, the garage has been overhauled, meaning when you double click a vehicle, then enter garage, the vehicle is replaced by a non movable random vehicle. Any possibility of a fix?

@Ross
You are using an outdated version of Achilles.
The module should work fine in the newest version (v1.0.1).
Ross Feb 17 @ 9:37am 
@kex Yup it worked thx :)

Thanks , I'll certainly be looking forward to doing some Police Type missions with my buddies and suprising them with Undercover cops.

Would certainly be a nice addition.
You could make use of the animation module for now.
There are a few civilian animations that hide the unit's weapon.
