Gear Functions


After seeing a screenshot with a unit that had a helmet attached to the side and discussing with the creator (Riksen) I decided to turn it into an addon. Its written using functions and ACE iteration menu. You can use the functions to apply it to AI, examples are below. I plan to expand the mod to have more features but that will come later. It's MP compatible with a small bug.

Sling Helmet to left/right belt.
Hide slung helmet on entering vehicles.

To install the Gear Functions you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.

Included files:

For usage instructions and information of how to use the Gear Functions please refer to the included documentation and/or example mission.

Functions Examples:
[unit, "left/right"] call GEARF_fnc_slingHelmet;
[unit] call GEARF_fnc_unslingHelmet;
[unit, true/false] call GEARF_fnc_hideSlungHelmet;
If you wanted to have an AI sling their helmet to their left side you would use:
[unit, "left"] call GEARF_fnc_slingHelmet;

Future plans:
Sling to backpack (vanilla to start with)
Auto add secondary headgear.

As this is a WIP I will update as I have made any progress and as always any suggestions would be welcome. It's a steam workshop release but I will upload to Mega soon.

Added missing server key.

- Auto Detect Secondary Headgear
Detects any additional headgear in backpack and places on head when helmet it slung.
If you un-sling helmet whilst wearing any headgear it will add to backpack or place on ground if no space.
