Arma 3 Launcher – How to quickly import the mods
If you are using the Arma 3 Launcher, you can import the modlist directly into the Launcher while automatically subscribing and loading the mods. To do this, launch the Arma 3 Launcher (by clicking on Play on the Steam Library page). Then, switch to the Mods page when the launcher comes up. In the top right is a button that allows you to manage profiles. Click it, and a bar will open on the side with all your presets, as well as an “Import” button at the bottom. Click import, and either browse to the downloaded modlist, or cut&paste the url into the “File name” field. This will create a new profile called “Imported preset” that has all the mods in it. They are subscribed, downloaded and loaded automatically.
The profile contains the JSRS mods as well as Blastcore, which are both optional. If you don’t want those, unload them. Also, there is one mod that is not available on the workshop, the KLS Flare Fix. This still needs to be downloaded manually. Also, while part of the ACE distribution, the tracer and particles addons also need to be loaded manually by clicking “local mod” on the launcher, and adding @ace/optionals/@ace_tracers and @ace/optionals/@ace_particles.
Addons or mods that will give you advantage over what was intended by the missions design are forbidden as well, like addons that will enhance your gear, addons that will extend your visibility, and addons or mods that might interfere with online gameplay.
