Attention all units,

From the beginning, Arma 3 has always been a true labor of love, both for the Arma Team and for our loyal community of players and creators. The amount of effort that has been put into the vast Arma 3 universe of mods and maps is a testament to how far the passion of a community can take a game.
We are humbled by your creativity and enthusiasm, and we would be honored to receive your nomination in the "Labor of Love" category!

- Your Arma 3 Development Team :hearts:



On Veterans Day, we thank veterans in Czechia and worldwide! 🫡🇨🇿

Thank you for participating in our Veterans Day initiative in partnership with Civilisté děkují za službu.

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO


We have released an Arma 3 Czech Veterans Pack, in collaboration with Civilisté děkují za službu, to honor those who have served or are currently serving in the military. 🇨🇿

We would like to invite our community to create screenshots using this pack of in-game assets. Submissions should at least include the special event logo. It represents the Remembrance Poppy, an international symbol often used for Veterans Days, and the lion from the Czech coat of arms. On Veterans Day (Nov. 11th), we will be creating a collage of the screenshots submitted. The top submissions will receive prizes, as well a special place in our Arma 3 Lars Blanken Gallery (from the Art of War Charity Pack). 🖼️

If you'd like to participate, download the pack from the Steam Workshop, create your screenshot in the Eden Editor, and then submit the image on our forums!

Czech Veterans Pack Steam Workshop Link

We recommend using this pack in combination with the unofficial ACR_A3 - Army of the Czech Republic mod, which brings various Czech vehicles, uniforms, and other assets to Arma 3.

ACR_A3 Steam Workshop Link

Please note that the images do not have to necessarily depict the Czech military. You can depict members of your own country of choice – you will just need to feature the special event logo. Obviously, images containing ripped mod or IP-infringing content will not be accepted, and images must be respectful and appropriate to the context and spirit of Veterans Day.

We look forward to your submissions! If you'd like to share your screenshot elsewhere, do be sure to tag it with #Players4Veterans!

BI Forum thread for submissions

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Arma 3 Creator DLC?
    Creator DLC is a label for original Arma 3 projects made by third-party developers and published by Bohemia Interactive. This program enables external talent to earn a financial reward for their work, while players get to enjoy more new quality content. For more information, please visit the Arma 3 website.
  • Why is Creator DLC optional to install?
    We have decided to make it optional to have the Creator DLC data installed. This is mainly to avoid regular Arma 3 installations from requiring a lot more additional hard-drive storage, even for those who have not purchased a Creator DLC. Additionally, a Creator DLC's theme or setting might be very different from regular Arma 3 or not everyone might want it to be visible in their game.
  • How do I launch Spearhead 1944?
    You will need to visit the DLC section in the Arma 3 Launcher, make sure Spearhead 1944 is owned and loaded, then launch the game by clicking the PLAY button.
  • Can I still play together with people who do not own the DLC in multiplayer?
    To enable non-owners to still play on multiplayer servers that make use of Spearhead 1944 content, Heavy Ordnance Works has published a "compatibility data for non-owners" via the Steam Workshop. Be aware that access to the DLC's premium Normandy terrain, campaign, and singleplayer scenarios remain exclusive to owners of the DLC. Restrictions to the use of non-owned content also apply.
