Actual features
ReconMod is aimed to enchance the feeling of a recon squad. Therefore you should be able to build up a recon camp just before the objective you are about to observe for enemy movement. The build up camp acts as a mobile respawn position so you can join your recon comrades as fast as possible without the decrease of immersion like in-squad spawns would

The WIP core feature: extending ALiVE
The core feature of ReconMod is to couple with ALiVE Mod. Your recon missions should contribute to the OPCOMs decisions. When discovering enemy positions and their strength you should be able to inform your sides OPCOM and therefore Quick Reaction Forces, Reinforcements and such should react and have a combat strength appropiate enough to match your reported intel about the enemy.

This core feature should add a new way of players taking part of the evolving campaigns provided by ALiVE and their OPCOM/TACOM AI besides accomplishing already available tasks types.

To see the whole documentation please read the on Github!

To install ReconMod 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.
