What MODs do you use
I know there is quite a lot of mods out there already and I can't help but think that I've missed out on some.
I think it would be a good idea if people posted the mods they use along with a brief description on WHY they use them.
To begin I use the following:
VopSound_2.1: It offers better sound than what come with the game
SLX: MOD that makes the AI better (in my opinion) and adds a whole load of other features
Saku Lighting MODS: First mod makes the sun less blinding, the second affects lighting in the game
LittleBirds: Adds the chopper of the same name to the game
CAA1: Can play Arma 1 maps on Arma 2 (highly recommended)
CBA: Framework and standardistion for mods
I also use the Helicopter sound mod, Tracked Vehicle sound mods and the Spanish Weapons mods but I can't remember their names.
Not sure if there's an existing thread on this already, so apologies in advance.
i think such topics should not exist cause every addonmaker tries to do his best and listing what is better is not right (such topic on A1 turned into "what is better")
expressing why someone use something is also not right, cause looks like crypto-advertisment and demeaning to other (probably soon some more people will do sound mods and etc.)
if you write about something as highly recomended than what it means to other people's effort ? not recomended ?
just one ask - avoid in future on such topics opinion "better, worse", cause i remember situation when wrong model was called better and oposite situation, when other person seeing good and proper model told it is bad (comparing to other not-realistic one)
if you ask what modification someone use, you should divide MODs and ADDONs
mod - changes gameplay like ACE in AA1
addons - not changes gameplay, but only adds new content like model of vehicle, weapon etc.
The point of this thread is not to find out 'which is better', if it descends into flame wars then I'll be the first to want the thread locked.
The intention was that people would post their current setups, therefore creating awareness of mods/addons that other users may not have known existed.
So, can we stick to the topic at hand? PM me if you must, but let's keep this on topic if at all possible
Well that's pathetic, all this topic appears to be is topic for people to say "I've used this adddon, I like it and it works well".

CBA: Framework and standardisation for mods and addons covers my reasoning perfectly.
Saku Mods: Lighting and driving modifications, seem to make some nice changes.
SAP Clutter: Makes it much easier to go prone in grass and remain useful.
SDP Cannon Fix: Shilka's need to fire on multiple barrels.
Binkowski's Army '09: Brings back memories of ArmA 1 and ACU units from there.
In addition to these I use a few personal mods, that aren't ready for release.
Thanks Eki, I didn't know about the SAP Clutter mod.
CAA1 for the old Arma islands that play fine now.
VOPSOUND because it's good.
I am at work now so I don't remember the names but one mod makes the ground textures smoother (LandTex) and the other reduces the size of plants (SAP clutter) thus increasing performance and visibility.
And then a few addons, like the mercenaries pack, fast-rope helicopter, place-able LHD, the minimal cross-hair mod (WHICH IS AMAZING and I recommend it to all y'all). Some other mods here and there too.
I am still waiting for another patch to finalize my configuration since the 1.03 beta makes my mouse jerky. Then I'll give SLX a shot.

Reason: thanks Eki
That'd be LandTex although I cannot for the life of me remember who the author is.

than i use this:
my Polish units - because this is army of my country, PT91, Landrover, BMP1, Leopard 2A4, ambulance, Police vehicles,
my Swedish and Bundeswehr units
my Alien APC and Colonial Marines because i love AVP games
soon addons of Project'85 because of lots of cold war stuff and high level of realism and huge variety of vehicles (circa 80) and weapons (ca. 200) and units (ca. 80) more realistic are hard to find :P
soon i hope to use PKW WW2 D-Day units and weapons as Yac will release them :P
I'm currently playing with Arma2 beta patch, CBA, SLX, Vopsound and Sakura sun and light fx plus a "Test" folder where I put units I want to try.
