SCmod

by
CheyenneAH56


Description:
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.


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.

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


Usage:
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

> addons are not binarized to facilitate their editing.


Included files:
SCmod_basic_waterkit.pbo
SCmod_fire.pbo

Yes of course !

as I explain in * pdf file, you are free to edit the files, and even redistribution, provided that you mention my work.

in the file that starts the function, "SCmod_fnc_basic_waterkit.sqf", the condition triggering the module is to be in command of a helicopter, change the condition by "plane" and recompile the file.

but there is more :

It seems that it's all that loop. I hope.

Good Luck.

Hello!

your problem seems very strange.

I'm not at home right now and am traveling for my job, so I'm not able to help you as far away from my PC.

Try to re-download the zip file, and reinstall.
I have no returns, similar to yours, and I hope this is the only functional mod bug.

Please, keep me updated about the progress of your problem, so that I stabilized the mod.

For information, I programmed the mod with ArmA3 Vanilla, so as not to be influenced by any mods or addons.

Added 1 minute later:

# proftournesol : Now that you edited the OP i see what it is about.

*YES*

Is it just me or is anyone else having an issue where the filling hose flips up and breaks the main rotor. The filling hose seems out of control all the time for me. Btw.. thank you for making this mod! I've really been looking forward to it.

Hi Benji235

I know the problem with the filling line. Normally, I expected that BIS makes available the appropriate command to manage the elasticity of the rope. I owed by a scripted sleight of hand correct this elasticity by combining two opposing forces through eight ropes.

I will update the mod soon as the command is available. Also, the rope to a minimum length of 0.5 m. and this is too 0.5m for the deflection of the filling line.

This represents a real obstacle to the mod, but given the expectations of the community, I hope to adjust quickly.

it would be best that the rope creation command allows a zero elasticity and no segment length (without terminal segment of the object 1 to object 2)

Thanks, Cheyenne, for getting back to me. I found a feedback tracker for it and up voted it! Is there any way to make the snorkel retractable?

Indeed, there is a way, but I preferred to let a part of realism mod.
However I take this request into account to improve the mod if necessary.

During anti fire suppression operations (in real life), the supply line is attached (when maintenance on the ground) and can be released by the flight crew, but can not be re-hung (mainly the removable kits). Only a few models designed only for a specific type of helicopters can be retracted at will.

I sincerely hope that BIS will listen very urgent request of the community about the management of the ropes.

I have very few returns, (at all) do not hesitate to let me know your opinion on the mod, even negative.

I totally understand you are going for realism with this. And I know retractable snorkels are very rare. But at least for me, the snorkel kits are pretty much unbearable to use at the moment. It would be a nice to have the retractable version at least just temporarily.
