ArmaELITES founder “WinGmaN” has been working on a Map Tools program that is both a Stand Alone program for Iphone, Ipad, Android and other devices but also as a second screen map tools program that works directly with Arma3 as it’s running.

Think of it as a virtual map that can be used on a second screen for those at home who have multiscreen setups.

We are currently running with the latest version of Arma3 Beta and won’t be releasing this until some issues are ironed out. ArmaELITES members only will get first shot and then we’ll slowly start getting it out to specific clans to test for us. This currently works with Wasteland and DayZ as well.

There are three versions that are currently being worked on:

1. ArmaELITES Devices
– This integrates with your smart phone, ipad etc. All you need to do is link it to your computer while gaming and it jumps to your ipad or smartphone screen in real time.

2. ArmaELITES 2nd Monitor – Again, we’ve worked out how to screen the map in real time on a separate monitor so that you can view the entire battle plan in real time, adding and deleting marks along the way.

Special
We’ve also included the ArmaELITES OTLP – or ONE TIME LETTER PAD. This means that if the person in charge wants to change something on the map because the map has been caught by the enemy then all members who wish to see the new map details must know the four digit code on the OTLP (given prior to starting a mission) to read the map properly. Otherwise, the map starts adding directions and marks all over the place. That should keep the opfor busy for a while. So you say “IF THE MAP IS STOLEN”??????? Yes thats right, if the OPFOR or opposing party captures and kills the enemy leader who holds the map then they can see the entire plan of attack until another leader calls for the OTLP change.

3. ArmaELITES ingame – This version is a shortcut key that our soldier press in game that displays the ArmaELITES map instead of ingame Arma3 default map. For those who don’t have smart devices or 2nd monitors.

Again, this is still a work in progress and we have a little way to go, especially with the Arma3 game still in Beta. However, it’s certainly a good step in the right direction on what we’re doing here.

As usual we are looking for modders and scripters to join what we see as the Ultimate mod making group in the future of Arma3. We are the ArmaELITES!

If you’d like to suggest something let us know.

Here are some quick screenshots of it working (we still have a glitch but are working on it in the 2nd screen menu).

This sounds really nice.
Once you have a video or something to show how this works make sure to post it so we can make some news about it :-)
