DBO Ponds


(a) Essentially its the A2 chernarus water pieces and made for my own port of Chernarus and as such anyone with the proper export data fromchernarus A2 and knowledge of Terrain builder A3 can simply add these as a library template and they will import as normal because the naming is unchanged.
(b) I have given them editor scope so people can use on there own Islands if the shapes fit.

*There are over 130 ponds so plenty to go at without placing two same

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:

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:

You can find a tutorial how to make your own in the DBO Ponds release topic.
Please see Milkmans video on How to make your own custom ponds below, I will be adding the Firegeometry and experimenting on Shaders in the near future but for now i have left them with the Calmwater as this leaves them usable.

Media: has its own Youtube channel where we will cover the Community made releases.

Known issues:
You must understand before using that there are 3 important unfixables that must be taken into consideration before using these are as follows :
(1) You cannot swim along the surface you must dive down and swim below the water
(2) you cannot drive through unless you are going slow "Q" for default "W" &"E" or turbo will give crap result
(3) most important You cant use two of the same ponds in a mission /terrain or the graphic glitch will appear*

As always with my addons i try to please myself first and when i feel happy i release to all, i am not out to make things for anyone but like to share the things i make, so please before downloading respect i made these for me and i am content with their short comings, by downloading and using you must also accept they are not perfect.

Much apreciated for any comments questions and as always im sure a little grief

To Life Mods and Server Owners and Map makers
Whilst i undersatnd Servers are costly things to run , so is all the time and effort we addon makers put into these things, Donation for perks where alterations to pbo names or internal works is not acceptible and where monetiaztion does not comply with BIS monetization policy in addition to lisences i will persue compensation where i see it viable so beware and simply ask for permission and give an explanation.
