MDH TopDownAttack

by

Description:
I really miss some fundamental features in Arma III and decided to make the short Titan launcher to be able to do Topdown Attacks. I'm started with this addon at the begining of June and now I'm like to share my work with the community.


Features:
- You are now able to switch between direkt and topdownmode.
- You are able to lockon ships, cars, tanks, infantry and helos.
- Minimal attackRange -> directMode: 10 meters -> topDownMode: 65 meters
- Maximal attackRange -> 2500 meters
- Added display for targetdistance
- When no target is locked the rocket is wireguided (like in Vanilla ArmA III)


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.


Included files:
mdh_topdownattack.pbo


Usage:
The default keys to switch between direkt and topdown mode : Tab.
You can change the Key in the userconfig.
