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.

@arismagic it’s a client side mod, you just need the key on they server

Description doesn't say what this is, so is this explosion effects or smoke effects?

Ehm... Guys, excuse my ignorance but is this a server-side, client-side or globally run mod? Thanks a lot.

Does anyone know how to make this mod not to remove ACE fragments from Slammer HE shells?

for issues with vic smoke use the vanilla smoke mod linked in the description also AI don't react to the new larger smoke (they behave as if it was tiny stock smoke that blows away) unless blastcore is loaded on server as well so another reason to just sue that mod to disable that effect (or delete the smoke section of the mod from the pbo if u know that much). the serverside smoke is also linked if you don't care about borked vics (ACE fixes it as it seems to mess with smoke aswell)

dependencies issues are common but avoidable. ideal to load a 'just the basics' modset when making missions. if you want to 'recover' a mission just open the mission file in a text editor and ctrl-f search 'Blastcore_VEP' and delete the single line instance 'in a list of other dependencies, should be first result. DONT DELETE THE SECOND INSTANCE, should be apart of a block to spot it and will break ur mission.

Hey, I know this isn't maintained anymore but I'm just putting it out there in case anyone works on it in the future. For some reason the mod seems to set 'Blastcore_VEP' as a mission dependency under certain circumstances. Would really be appreciated if anyone who takes over development fix that issue. Thanks.

Really like this mod but there is one problem, if you deploy smoke from a vehicle using a vehicle mounted launchers, the smokes deploy instantly instead of flying thru the air before deploying normally. Here is an video to demonstrate the problem:
