Offshore Oilrig

Mattaust & Rocket

This adds the Oil rig which was originally made for Armed Assault by Rocket to Arma 2.

Oil rig platform for Arma 2 and Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead. (Should work on either platform).
This Oilrig is now highly functional for Arma 2, I spent extensive hours porting, making major modifications and upgrades for the use of the ARMA 2 community. I hope you enjoy it!

As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems. For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ.

When you are using the Steam version you can find a Steam mod installation and activation FAQ here.

Known issues:
* DEFECT: [AVOIDED]: Under the platform where you would exit the boat, you would jump out of the boat and end up on the Top section, this is an ARMA 2 Engine problem due to the oilrig using roadways to walk around which is required. This has been avoided by placing buoys around the Oilrig, making users exit the boat next to the ladder out where the buoys are located next to the ramp. This will be recognized when downloaded.
* DEFECT: When looking directly upwards ontop of the building or the derrick, the whole Oilrig will become invisible. This is a defect due to the amount of polygons which cannot be fixed. (This is a minor issue and is hardly noticed)
