Title: How to Set Up an Arma 3 Life Server with the Latest Files
Arma 3 is a popular military simulation game that allows players to create and join various scenarios and game modes. One of the most popular game modes is Arma 3 Life, which is a role-playing mod that simulates civilian life in a fictional island called Altis. In Arma 3 Life, players can choose to be police officers, medics, rebels, civilians, or anything else they can imagine.
If you want to set up your own Arma 3 Life server, you will need some files and tools to get started. In this article, we will guide you through the basic steps of installing and configuring an Arma 3 Life server on your Windows or Linux machine.
Step 1: Download and install the Arma 3 Dedicated Server
The first thing you need is the Arma 3 Dedicated Server, which is a free package that allows you to run a server for Arma 3. You can download it from Steam using the steamcmd utility, which is a command-line tool that lets you install and update Steam applications.
To use steamcmd, you will need to create a separate Steam account for your server and log in with it. You will also need to create some empty directories for your server files. For example, you can create the following directories:
Then, you can download steamcmd.exe from https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/client/installer/steamcmd.zip and save it to D:\\Apps\\Steam. Run steamcmd.exe and enter the following commands:
app_update 233780 validate
This will download and install the latest version of the Arma 3 Dedicated Server to D:\\Games\\ArmA3\\A3Master. You can also use different directories if you prefer.
If you are using Linux, you can follow the same steps but use different paths and commands. For example, you can create the following directories:
Then, you can download steamcmd from https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/client/installer/steamcmd_linux.tar.gz and extract it to /home/steam/steamcmd. Run steamcmd.sh and enter the following commands:
app_update 233780 validate
This will download and install the latest version of the Arma 3 Dedicated Server to /home/steam/arma3.
Step 2: Download and install the Arma 3 Life Framework
The next thing you need is the Arma 3 Life Framework, which is a mod that adds the features and content for Arma 3 Life. You can download it from https://github.com/AsYetUntitled/Framework/releases and extract it to D:\\Games\\ArmA3\\A3Files (or /home/steam/arma3files if you are using Linux).
The framework contains two folders: @life_server and mpmissions. You need to copy these folders to your Arma 3 server directory (D:\\Games\\ArmA3\\A3Master or /home/steam/arma3). You also need to rename the mpmissions folder to MPMissions (case-sensitive).
Step 3: Download and install extDB3
extDB3 is a database extension that allows your Arma 3 server to communicate with a MySQL database. You will need this to store and retrieve data for your Arma 3 Life server, such as player profiles, vehicles, houses, etc.
You can download extDB3 from https://github.com/SteezCram/extDB3/releases and extract it to D:\\Games\\ArmA3\\A3Files (or /home/steam/arma3files if you are using Linux). The extDB3 folder contains two files: extDB3.dll and extdb-conf.ini. You need to copy these files to your Arma 3 server directory (D:\\Games\\ArmA3\\A3Master or /home/steam/arma3).
