    Folk ARPS - Arma 3 for everybody




    If you are looking for a group of light hearted but organised people to learn and play Arma with then look no further than the resident arma group - Folk ARPS (FA).

    We run two sessions a week on Sunday and Tuesday at 19:20 UK time that are open to anyone and you won't need half a tonne of mods either. If you want to join us or find out a bit more then go to this address:

    www.folkarps.com

    Here you will find all the relevant information about when, where and what. Any questions you have can be posted on the forum there or sent to one of the hosts (admins). The links are all on that page, have a quick read.

    If you want to see the kind of stuff that we get up to have a look at this you tube channel:

    http://www.youtube.com/user/folkarps

    Alternatively come join us on Discord (no installation required) and have a chat.

    Happy Armaing

    audiox and all the rest of FA

    For those who missed it, or fancy a re-read, here is the article Rock Paper Shotgun did on FA last autumn.

    I've been in a similar position and I find that these events are not all that hard to get back into.

    It's incredibly easy! Just make sure to do the following:


    1. Set up Teamspeak: Link
    2. Set up Mods: Link CBA ShackTacUI
    3. Have Fun


    You might want to brush up on the controls before session if you're rusty. I strongly recommend you use the ShackTacUI mod, which is invaluable, and requires CBA to work. Other white-listed mods are in the forum post, but any other mods are not allowed. You don't need any DLC. Remember to set up a PTT key in Teamspeak.

    You don't actually need any mods either. Just be there on teamspeak and you're good to go. You don't need to set up cross channel comms either if you don't plan on leading (and chances are you don't).

    So it's even more easy! Which is good as you're too busy too game. Even in the future.
