Sailing Mod

by

Description:
If you've ever dreamed of sailing a boat in Arma 3 using the wind to move around, now you can! Using [Dust]Sabre's cool sailboats, once you unfurl the sails, the boat will move forward based on the wind strength and direction. Different wind angles will cause the boat to automatically change the angle of the boom arm. You'll have to navigate to your destination based on the best angle of the wind. But beware, don't sail directly into the wind or you'll get stuck "In Irons" which will slow you down.


Features:
New Wind Info Display
Built In Compass (shows your heading and wind direction)
Point of Sail Indicator (changes depending on angle of boat to the wind)
Point of Sail Color Indicator (Green = Good, Blue = OK, Red = Bad)
Wind Direction Arrow (moves with changes in the wind)
Heading Display
True Wind Angle Display
True Wind Speed Display
Wind Angle to Boat Display (+ is Starboard) (- is Port)
Night Mode
Wind pushes boat forward depending on angle
Wind leans boat over port or starboard depending on wind speed
Automatic boom arm changes (just steer and relax)
Custom Sounds
In-game Instructions and tips in the Field Manual


Installation:
To install Sailing 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.


Included files:
A3_Sailing_Mod.pbo


Future plans:
Advanced Sailing Model where YOU control the boom arm and determine the speed of the boat.
Possibly a navigation system which generates lay lines for you


Credits & Thanks:
Special thanks to [Dust]Sabre for generously working with me on his model to help make this mod a reality.
