CIRCUMSTANCES: Update 1.016 (Tanks DLC, Object Builder, Work Drive)


Arma 3 Tools version 1.016 brings quite a light update which adds Tanks DLC to the list of supported DLC. Alongside this, Work Drive now allows content creators to access Jets DLC and Laws of War DLC data which were recently decrypted (turned into PBOs). Encoders will also find a new handy feature in Object Builder: a single selection can now be renamed or deleted across all LODs where it exists.

As a note, many of you have been asking for a 64-bit version of Binarize and also the return of the sources of the core configs. These will arrive in the Tools Dev-Branch in the upcoming weeks. We just need a little more time to polish them.
