USS Nimitz

by
JDog & TeTeT


Description:
Welcome to the Nimitz for ArmA 3 project! The carrier is based on the outstanding work of JDog with the Nimitz for ArmA 2. The Nimitz for ArmA 3 project is a faithful conversion of his work, with improvements to scripts and textures so far. This documentation is based on the blueprint laid out by JDog for the ArmA2 mod and shall cover the same aspects.


Installation:
ATTENTION: make sure to delete the old @Nimitz folder when applying the update, otherwise the Mk29 Sea Sparrow will not be working.

The new carrier is only compatible with Arma 3 1.56 and upwards. Due to Eden compatible inits it doesn't work with 1.54 or lower!

To install the USS Nimitz you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.
