1st BBR EZ Markers

by

Description:
EZ Markers is a mod that generates map markers and optional 'signs'. The intent is to provide easier access to map markers as well as utilizing a large number of markers generated to MIL-STD 2525C standards (not all of them, just the relevant symbols that would be typical in ARMA).
The mod is currently functional, however much of the symbology has not been implemented yet. Some of the interface needs tweaking for easier use.
I can use any feedback on how to improve the functionality. The mod is mostly self explaintory, but check the video for a quick demo.


Features:
Keys are provided, but I have not checked their validity, please let me know if the signing is incorrect.
The mod is Client/Server, the Server executes the creation of markers and send commands for the clients to create signs. Most of the execution is client based.
Network traffic is minimal (unless dozens are creating markers and signs all at the same time).
I need opinions on whether limits should be placed on players (sign creation could get out of hand).


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.
