Since ArmA 1.12b was released field of view (FOV) has been a hot topic. On request I decided to create a small addon for UNA clan that changes the field of view back to what it was in 1.08 before BIS changed it. Since many might find this addon useful we decided to release it for public use. In addition there is also an addon included for using 1.12b FOV if there was somebody that prefered that. This addon has been tested in ArmA 1.14.

Since v1.1 FOV has been changed in all land vehicles and in the parachute to values that were used in 1.08 and 1.12. FOV has also been changed for all rifles and pistols. It is easy however still easy to disable thease changes if you prefere the weapon and/or vehicle FOV used in 1.14. Read 'USAGE' for more information.


INSTALLATION:
========================================
I point to Armaholic for how to install addons and modfolders
http://www.armaholic.com/plug.php?e=faq&q=18


USAGE:
========================================
This addon pack containes four pbos:
* UNA_FOV108.pbo changes the units FOV to Arma 1.08 values.
* UNA_FOV112b.pbo changes the units FOV to Arma 1.12 values.
* una_fov_weapons.pbo changes the weapons FOV to Arma 1.08 and 1.12 values.
* una_fov_vehicles.pbo changes the vehicle FOV to Arma 1.08 and 1.12 values.

If you want to use 1.08 FOV use your @UNAfov\Addons folder should look like this (default settings):
UNA_FOV108.pbo
una_fov_weapons.pbo
una_fov_vehicles.pbo
disabled\UNA_FOV112b.pbo

If you prefere 1.12 FOV over 1.08 your @UNAfov\Addons folder should look like this:
UNA_FOV112.pbo
una_fov_weapons.pbo
una_fov_vehicles.pbo
disabled\UNA_FOV108.pbo

If you prefere 1.14 weapon FOV move una_fov_weapons.pbo to disabled folder.
If you prefere 1.14 vehicle FOV move una_fov_vehicles.pbo to disabled folder.


MP USAGE:
========================================
This addon is client side and works good in MP. This addon might give minor advantage or disadvantage in close combat MP games and its usage might not be allowed on all servers.
This addon pack is part of the UNA addons used by UNA clan and its usage is allowed on UNA server.


VERSION HISTORY
========================================
v1.1
- FOV changed for all rifles to 1.08 and 1.12 values
- FOV changed for all pistols to 1.08 and 1.12 values

Just last night I was hoping a addon would come out to fix this particular issue. I cant stand how the new patchs after 1.08 use the new "field of view" its way to zoomed in and then to zoomed out.

thanks so much

For the life of me I cant get this mod to work. I have tried every possible configuration imaginable. I even took out all my mods from my mod string and only used this one and still no change. I took screenshots of every test to compare them together. My vanilla ArmA/Addons folder is just that...vanilla...stock, I use another folder for extra addons, which was disableda at the time of testing. I installed the mod just as the readme stated and added it to my target line....but nada. I am running 1.14 patch and QG.

This addon is tested and works with 1.14 and QG. It also works together with most 3rd party addons. Check once again that you have installed the modfolder proparly, since a spelling mistake here is the most likely reason why it not works.
