BTK Wirecutter [BETA]


Enables you to cut certain fences. When near a compatible fence, an action will be available to cut it.

Cutting a fence:
- Requires a Toolbox.
- Will take 10-20 seconds.
- Can be aborted by moving a few steps away from the fence.

The destroyed fence objects are not spawned anymore because we had some issues with that (floating above the ground and such).

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

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_name\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name\

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/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.

Included files:

This video was made with the very first version and I made some small tweaks here and there since.

Known issues:
- Not updated for Altis yet! I'm not using dev branch, so I will update it, if necessary, a day or so after official launch.
- Doesn't work with the really tall fence around Air Station Mike, for some reason that one cannot be detected like the others.
- If the action doesn't appear, try moving a few steps to the left or right
