SP Control Module

Dj Otacon

This modification increases the replayability of the single player games. Make a series of functions that allow you to adjust parameters of the game while it is playing.

It is aimed at players who want to replay your favourite missions but changing weapons, weather, time of day or any other parameter.

Using the action SPCONTROLMOD you have access to following commands:
  • Weather: Change the weather time using profiles (Clear, Overcast, Rain, Storm,Random).
  • Daytime: Change the Daytime time using profiles (Morning, Day, Evening,Night,Random).
  • Grass: Change the amount of grass.
  • Fatigue: Enable/Disable fatigue.
  • Arsenal: Show the Virtual Arsenal.
  • Camera: Load the Splendid Camera.
  • Repair: Repair a vehicle and heal the player.
  • Save: Enable save in the mission.
  • Spawnquad: Spawn a quad near the player.

Only works on single player.

Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:\Program Files\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
64-Bit - C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
After extraction it should look like this:
Steam\Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\@your_mod_folder_name\addons\

You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name1\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\

When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons and/or mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.

You'll also need to add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:

You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.

And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!

When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods.
