This adds Enhanced Movement to your character.
- one context sensitive key to:
--> climb on/over and step onto obstacles
- one context sensitive key to:
--> open doors/hatches and perform any close by actions
--> climb ladders
--> access the gear of any object (vehicles, ammoboxes, etc.)
--> get quickly into prioritized vehicle seats (temporarily disabled)
--> vehicle seat menu
--> access gear of group members (temporarily disabled)
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:
You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
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:
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.
after installing the addon simply go ingame and press ESC.
there will be a small menu that will allow you to bind your keys and adjust your settings.

v0.62 beta (Nexus)
- added: stamina penalty for jumping and climbing

- removed: weight limits, obsolete
- changed: menu slightly changed to make more room for key combo names
- changed: fall damage is more lethal due to presence of a counter (drop safely)
- changed: no more auto eject when using interaction key inside vehicle, custom action menu instead
- and maybe other stuff i forgot about.
- weight limits have been "removed": the limits can still be set by the mission makers but i felt the default state should not be restricting since fatigue already provides a penalty.
this will reworked once the Nexus update and stasmina are on stable
- NVG effects reworked: i replaced blur with more dynamic "wet distortion effect" to get bloomy lights but keep sharpness overall
- NVG sound gets only played on goggles and not scopes

- fixed/tweaked: jumping overhauled entirely (still needs some nerfing)
- added: super simple interaction icons (optional)....... -added: arma 2 mode since arma 2 buildings have badly placed memory points
- added: self-interaction (just holstering and general weapon selection for now...more later)
- added: vehicle menu to select seat categories
- fixed: player could get into vehicles from too far away using fast get in
- anti flying hotfix
