Blastcore Edited (standalone version)

*The original author of the Blastcore mod is Opticalsnare. He didn't update Blastcore more than a year. I could not find information about Blastcore license, I tried and could not contact Opticalsnare via Bohemia Interactive forum to ask for permission to modify it. Opticalsnare, if you read this and you don't like what I have done, please contact me via Steam and mod will be removed from Steam Workshop.

**Please, don't upload this mod on any other sites or hostings without permission (read above).

Blastcore is one of the best mods ever made for Arma series and it is a big loss for a lot of Arma players. Hope Opticalsnare return to continue his work on Blastcore mod series.


This version is standalone. You should not run Blastcore Edited (standalone) together with Blastcore Edited (a fix version). You don't need any other mods to run.

Set particles quality on High.

Dependencies: none

This mod is based on Blastcore: Phoenix with edits taken from Blastcore: Phoenix 2 and Arma 3 vanilla effects. This version fixes a lot of errors caused by Arma 3 updates and changes some of the effects. I have put a lot of work in it (more than a year), but not as much as Opticalsnare, of course.

You download this mod AS IS. Some effects may be broken or don't work at all. Test it on vanilla only. Effects may be broken with RHS mods or any other mods that uses custom or edited effects. Feel free to contact me if you find errors.

Original author of Blastcore: Phoenix and Blastcore: Phoenix 2 is Opticalsnare.

Ive always used Murr only because I couldnt get this to work.

There are 3 versions of Blastcore. This "Standalone version", "Compiled by neetch", "Murr Edition". Today I tested each of these versions and I want to say that this Standalone version is the best of all. Other versions may be better only in some details, but in general, they are visually overloaded and look like a festive fireworks.They also have more bugs

@Tazor Watch this:

Then go here, this is the real deal: Blastcore is part of it.

What does this mod even do??? The description is just some random BS and drama.

@Paladin - I'm sad that you have given up working on improving blastcore mod. As a result, the Arma3 сommunity no have compatibility blastcore with ACE3, RHS or other mods that have visual effects. I hope the day will come and you will return to the Steam and please all of us with an updated version of blastcore

@Paladin - looks like this guy disappeared. And it looks like he have repeated the fate of the original author and disappeared irrevocably in the abyss of days! What a wonderful speech in the description of this mod, I like that he respect the original author of blastcore as much. He did a great job and disappeared, like a real hero.

Hey there! I have noticed a bit of an odd thing. The 40mm grenades from the automatic grenade launchers and the cannon rounds fired by the AH-64 Apache in the RHS mod make explosions that are too large on impact. Thanks!
