Blake's Mirrors - Extended Eventhandlers


Ok same background as my carrier ops module, RL means these things are just gathering dust on my harddrive. So better to allow the community access and give the dedicated server testing a go rather than waiting for me to find the time and energy to organise it. Hence the Alpha status. A real early version of this worked fine in MP so hopefully that is a good start.

An addon that allows drivers of cars and trucks to use mirrors giving a more realistic experience in those roles, rather than having to rely on the outer body experience to view behind when reversing :P
Note it hasn't had any real dedicated server testing, only on my test dedi.Hence the alpha release for public testing. Feedback welcomed especially results on dedicated servers. Hopefully A3 will make this redundant.

The ability to look backwards emulating the side mirrors of a vehicle. Being able to still control the vehicle while viewing backwards. NVG compatible, though you will get the over exposure effect each time you change view.

As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems. For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ.

When you are using the Steam version you can find a Steam mod installation and activation FAQ here.
