Civilian UAV/UGV

by
Sabre[Dust]


Description:
Spin off of my civilian units addon. Since some people requested it I put it up as standalone addon.
Adds civilian UAV/ UGV and a terminal to go with it


Features:
Civilian Terminal, unarmed ground vehicle and unarmed aerial darter drone


Installation:
Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:\Program Files\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
64-Bit - C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
After extraction it should look like this:
Steam\Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\@your_mod_folder_name\addons\

You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name1\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\

When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons and/or mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.

You'll also need to add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:
-mod=@mod_name;@mod_name2;@mod_name3;@mod_name4;@mod_name5

Note:
You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.


And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!

When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods.


Included files:
sab_cuav.pbo


Usage:
Add a civilian terminal to any civilian unit you want to use it with and put this in the init:
this additem "sab_CUAV_Terminal"; 
Place a few manned civilian drones around it (Faction Civilian RC)

Backpack usage:
To use either add to a box/vehicle in editor using:
this addBackpackCargo ["sab_CUAV_BP",3];

or add to a player directly using
this addbackpack "sab_CUAV_BP";


Credits & Thanks:
Actually Das Attorney did most of the work, thank you so much!
