Enhanced Launchers

by
JonBons


Description:
This mods the vanilla RPG 42 rockets to include a fly-by/whistle sound and it also modifies the RPG 42 rockets to allow for AI to use the round against infantry and air units which when combined with the new sounds create more interesting scenarios in coop.

The mod modifies the following CfgAmmo classnames:
  • R_PG32V_F
  • R_TBG32V_F
The mod adds the following config classnames:
  • CfgAmmo
    • R_PG32V_NOMOD_F
    • R_TBG32V_NOMOD_F
  • CfgMagazines (addMagazine or addMagazineCargo)
    • RPG32_NOMOD_F
      • This variant of the RPG 42 AP rocket is NOT allowed to be used against infantry and air units.
    • RPG32_HE_NOMOD_F
      • This variant of the RPG 42 HE rocket is NOT allowed to be used against infantry and air units.

Features:
jb_enhanced_launchers_air - Enables RPG 42 rounds to be used against Air type units.
jb_enhanced_launchers_infantry - Enables RPG 42 rounds to be used against Infantry type units.
jb_enhanced_launchers_mags - Adds the NOMOD magazines for mission maker's choice.
jb_enhanced_launchers_sounds - Enables RPG 42 fly-by sounds.


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.
