Description:
What is GroupInfo
GroupInfo is a small addon we use on Comrades in Arms, but I thought it might be interesting to others as well. Its primary function is to show the names of people in your group. If you bring up the HUD (key and mode can be configured), it shows the number and name of people in your group via a small label hovering above their head. The label's intensity will fade out with distance, and will fade out twice as fast if the unit is obscured by terrain or by an object.

Furthermore, it displays a small triangle in one corner with your formation number and team color (if you are assigned to a team). The triangle can be toggled on or off, and can be replaced with a small list of names of people in your team.

When you are in a vehicle, friendly units embarking or disembarking from the vehicle are displayed by a message. If they are entering the vehicle, it also shows the position they moved into ("XXX has entered your vehicle as a driver" for example). Likewise, while the HUD is showing, GroupInfo will display a small popup hint that lists the crew and cargo of friendly vehicles.

GroupInfo also displays a menu (if ACE is loaded the menu integrates with the "self-interaction" menu) that allows you to assume leadership of your group, join a friendly unit's group (if you happen to look at a friendly unit), or automatically assign team colors to your team based on the number of teams you want.

GroupInfo adds a header in the briefing as well, with two entries:
Team Roster - this displays a list of all teams and how they are (originally) occupied. Since briefing entries cannot be updated, the display only represents the initial configuration.
My Start Gear - this displays your gear, weapons with attachments, magazines, explosives, and other stuff you are carrying. The same caveat applies as above, this is a snapshot of your gear at the beginning of a mission.

I wrote this addon for our group, if you can make use of it, all the better.


Installation:
To install FHQ GroupInfo 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.
