Installing mods for Arma3 is a simple process. From the Launcher's perspective there are two basic types of mods – those that originate from the Steam Workshop and those that come from alternative sources that you have manually downloaded ie 'Local' mods. Adding Steam Workshop mods to the Arma 3.

There are 2 ways to install mods on your Arma 3 server.
Automatically via Steam Workshop and manually via FTP.

  • 1Automatic installation via the workshop
  • 2Manual installation via FTP

Automatic installation via the workshop

For this we need the WorkshopID(s). This can be read from the link.
As an example, we use the mod CBA ( Community Based Addons ).
The ID for CBA is: 450814997.

Basic Mode

If your Arma 3 configuration is in Basic mode, the WorkshopIDs must be entered in the field
Mod Settings in the field Mods (Automatic installation via Steam Workshop).If you have more than one mod, separate the WorkshopIDs with semicolons.
This would look like this:WorkshopID1;WorkshopID2;WorkshopID3;
