    I'm using:

    - VopSound with RH Heli and TRSM Tracked Vehicles sounds
    - LandTex
    - RKSL countermeasures

    I'm also trying out the Sands map, which is very nice (for what it is - which is a lot of sand :P)

      Vanilla all the way, comrades. After the umpteenth time that I've had to exit out of a warning message that I don't have someone else's content installed, I've decided to go the path of celibacy.

          VopSound and GMJ Sight Adjustment.

          The latter is more or less required if you want your sniper rifle to be anything more than an oversized, overpowered assault rifle.

            I'm a VOP and LandTex kind of guy. I'm interested in some more mods, but the VOP and LandTex are what I use.

            @Monkey,

            Do you always load all of those or do you have a less mod heavy launcher setup? I think you will find that while many of these mods are great and add pretty cool adjustments to the game, they only actually work in certain situations and shouldn't always be loaded. I have several mods I only launch when I know I can take advantage of them.

                I'm only using Landtex. Perhaps I'll check out this VOP.

                  AT_GUI-makes compass bigger so i can read the damn thing.
                  CBA-needed for AT_GUI
                  Landtex-not sure what it does but everyone uses it and it looks ugly without it.
                  trsm_tracked_vehicals-sound for tanks
                  Vop2.1-envierment, weapon, jets, and light vehical sounds.
                  RH-Heli-Helicopter sounds
                  Proper plants-Removes two most detailed textures from bushes and trees(does not affect grass like some other hax mods people have posted and used)
                  JTD-Fire and smoke mod that sucks. Im taking it off as i write this.
                  Saku_lightfix-makes lights pretty
                  S_nvg-i think this is the mod that lets you ajust your NVGs its my second favorit to the one that lets me read compass.
                  Pistolafied tracers-Makes firfights awsome looking.

                  I played all vanilla until about a month ago when i got fed up not being able to read my compass and started downloading things from armaholic, maybe its gotten a bit out of hand though...

                    I'm running quite a bunch, too many to list all. Here's the most important ones:
                    • GMJ_SightAdjustment, NWD Scopefix, NWD Ballistics and my own Muzzlespeed
                    • Pistol's tracers
                    • SPON Rangefinder
                    • JTD_Smoke, custom tweaked to get rid of those errors it gives to others in MP.
                    • VOP
                    • InstantViewDistance
                    • A pseudo-FLIR mod for some vehicles
                    • GDT Plants
                    • A bunch of UI tweaks from various sources
                    • A bunch of different PROPER tweaks
                    • A bunch of weapons replacements, mainly the M4s and M16s with handgrips
                    • CBA


                    Just a note to those who are still running Noblur, especiall both A and B: You will screw up your game with it. The last version was made for Arma2 v1.02, so if you're running it you'll have bin.pbo, probably the single most important .pbo in the whole Arma2, from that version. Disabling post-processing from the ingame options gives exactly the same effect.

                      Same.

                      Playing around with CAA1 to play with new (err... old) maps, but only offline (since I can't find a server running that mod anyway).

                        @Monkey,

                        Do you always load all of those or do you have a less mod heavy launcher setup? I think you will find that while many of these mods are great and add pretty cool adjustments to the game, they only actually work in certain situations and shouldn't always be loaded.

                        Yes I load them all at one time. I have a newer cp and it seems to handle them all at once without any performance hit or other issues. I use to use several different start ups with my old computer.

                        This is what my path looks like:

                        "C:\Program Files (x86)\Bohemia Interactive\arma2.exe" -maxmem=2047 -nosplash [email protected]_2.1;@sakusun;@GDT;@misc;@JTD;@CBA_v0-1-3;@noblur;@Pistolfied_Tracers

                        @ Fincuan:
                        Thanks for the heads up on the noblur. I have taken it out and disabled post processing effects and it works great.
                        What settings did you use on your JDT Mod? Im still playing around with mine.

                            JTD settings depend entirely on what you prefer and what your PC is capable of. I lowered particle lifetime and source lifetime a bit, but didn't bother playing with the other stuff. The tweak I talked about is in the scripting side and a bit too much to explain here. Below you have something that should achieve basically the same effect, and which is mandatory multiplayer-wise:
                            • ForestFires disabled
                            • Birds disabled


                            The above two just don't work in MP unless all participants have the mod, and will strain fellow players with the "missing stuff" announcements.

                            edit: Also any tactical hat mods and such are no-no for MP. They only give missing stuff errors to other players.
