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.

For some reason, blastcore isn't working, I have it on but the explosions are still vanilla. It may be a conflict with another mod but I'm not sure

I am not interested in modding anymore and have no motivation to continue supporting this project. Atleast for now.

Dear Paladin,
I know this might be subjective, but imho the vanilla burning smoke looks better then the Blastcore one; the black-to-grey areas make it look more... volumetric:

Would it be possible to use the default burning smoke? As an addon like Vanilla Smoke (which is for smoke grenades)? Pretty please? :-)
Thank you for your consideration.

@TierOne_ZerO, because this mod depends on another one, called "Ability to read".
@[KO]]TTV Pill Smith, the same.

In reply to other comment, I can't get hopecore to work in any capacity with any version of Blastcore on the workshop...
No Entry errors for certain explosions...
