Steam Workshop Mods


Hi there,

I have followed the video tutorial, and have installed most of the public server mods via Arma3Sync. However, I have some mods already installed - namely RHS, CUP etc (aka the larger mods) - via Steam Workshop. However, as these are not installed via Arma3Sync, I cannot launch into the server. Is there a way I can get A3Sync to "find" my workshop mods, so that it knows I have them installed? Or do I have to reinstall the 20GB+ via A3Sync?

Thanks in advance
- Sturm_JC

We always recommend using a discreet folder to hold 3cb mods. That way it avoids the conflicts that people get with Workshop items. However I appreciate keeping multiple copies of RHS is not realistic.

You could create a virtual link within the 3CB-Mods folder pointing to the RHS build you already have, if you know how to do that?

My instinct is that it would be easier for you to simply MOVE the mods you need into the folder temporarily, RUN armasync to version check.... Unless someone else cleverer than me has a suggestion ?

I tried copying them over from my workshop files, but it didn't seem to like that and still didn't recognise some mods - gave in and just redownloaded directly through A3S. Seems to be taking a while to "check files" though so shall see if this has worked.

We recommend using Sync either way, as we do not always use the latest versions of certain mods, to avoid buggy releases.
