The editor is part of an update with includes and audio upgrade and small features to make it easier to create and distribute player-made missions.
Building towards the Apex expansion, the highlight of the major platform update, called the Eden Update was the much-anticipated Eden Editor (3D Scenario Editor), Launcher-Based Server Browser, audio upgrade, and many other improvements.
And because nothing truly happens without a video on youtube, a brand new trailer accompanies the update.
The goal of the Arma 3 Eden Update is to enhance the game's core usability and to cater to custom content creators in meaningful ways:
Eden 3D Editor – Retaining the beloved simplicity of creating scenarios, the new editor finally adds the third dimension and a lot of desired functionality. Often overlooked in press releases but a feature that thrills players who use the editor, it has an undo button!
Launcher-Based Server Browser – Get into multiplayer sessions more easily via better filtering options and Workshop mod support.
Audio Upgrade – A multi-channel amplitude panner and distance-based samples for weapons and explosions add more immersion and fidelity to combat sounds.
Font – Process information more quickly with a new, easier-to-read in-game font.
In addition to the above, the Eden Update also implements Steam Leaderboards, various scripted system optimizations, and parallax ground surfaces, NVIDIA’s HBAO+, and more.
