The islands of Stratis and Altis, located offshore Mediterranean, are each summer, subject to dry climates and forest fires. Put yourself in the shoes of a helicopter pilot, engaged in operations against fires. The SCmod module handles setting up and the use of a 1400L (370gal) fixed tank, refillable by using a submerged pump.

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:

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.

It comes with a demo mission, extract the .pbo file(s) to your Steam/SteamApps/common/ArmA 3/Missions folder.

In the editor, set your mission by placing on the map, SCmod module, your unarmed helicopter and wildfire, available under
«empty side» «SCmod». The modification is a module, that mounts and manages the additional tank under your helicopter. For more details on the functioning of module and its scripts, see next paragraph.

The SCmod has been designed mostly to mount and positioning the waterkit below CH49 and PO30 helicopters types. Other Vanilla’s unarmed helicopter models are also supported, but with a less accurate positioning of waterkit.

For other helicopter models, you need to edit the files.

The files for the basic functioning of SCmod are SCmod_basic_waterkit.pbo and SCmod_fire.pbo.
SCmod_basic_waterkit.pbo    function folder
SCmod_fnc_basic_waterkit.sqf    call the module fnc
SCmod_drop.sqs    fire EH effect
SCmod_waterkit.sqs    waterkit init

SCmod_fire.pbo    script folder
SCmod_fire.sqs    fire effect
SCmod_fire_prop.sqs    fire spread
SCmod_pipe_anim.sqf    filling line animation
