Request for a distinction between Premium and non-Premium DLC asset
New, NormalPublic


The icon (e.g Apex icon) in Arsenal does not mean that that you need Apex to use this content, only that it was added with Apex.
A confusion can follow and it does not help creating "Apex-free" missions.

The Arma 3 DLC Restrictions page lists the issue well:
"Worse", the weapon launch_MRAWS_olive_rail_F has Tanks DLC icon, but is usable by base-game only owners.
Headgear H_Tank_black_F can be used, while U_Tank_green_F cannot - and there is no in-game notice about it.

As for the request:
An easy fix would be to add an icon next to the DLC icon to all Premium assets (e.g a star ⭐).
A "costlier" version would be to add a closed lock icon (🔒) to the non-owned Premium asset, and an open lock icon (🔓) to the owned ones.
