Aerodrome ICAO signs Mod


The addon was made by NightIntruder. My main goals to achieve while working on the addon were:
- to have ICAO signs for airports whenever I fly with my fellow v-pilots during our scenarios,
- to have helping signs while taxiing according to ATC's direction
- to have airport charts that would help having better SA at airports
- to have better and more realistic immersions at airports
- to encourage mission makers of colaborating communities to include ATC slot for their's MP scenarios

It took me 4 days to create the addon. Initially I didn't want to release the addon but finally I thought that the addon is good enough to share it.
In creation of the addon following software were used:
- Autodesk 3D Studio Max 2016 (3D, models, unwrapping)
- Autodesk Photoshop CS 2 (2D, textures)
- Notepad ++ (writing configs)
- BIS Developer Tools: Object Builder, ModelBuilder, IMGtoPAA.

- 1 model of NDB station
- a bearing system courtesy of TeTeT
- 6 different models of standing sign (low-poly, app. 240 polys per sign)
- 3 different models (simple polys) for laying sign
- 833 custom made textures that cover most of ICAO signs related to taxiways, stands, APRONs, runways
- changing textures of a signs' polys based on setObjectTextureGlobal command
- standing signs are backlighted during night time
- a mission with pre-placed signs on four Tanoa's aerodromes and NDB stations is included
- charts of Tanoa's aerodromes are included
- a server key included
- a manual with path to textures included

To install the Aerodrome ICAO signs Mod 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.
