Compass and Watch Enlarger [ALPHA]

Kerc Kasha

First thing I noticed in Arma 3 was we were back to the tiny useless compass again, so I converted the changes in the beta patch over to A3 so usable compass again! I removed the stuff regarding the GPS as it broke it entirely.

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/@a3a_units
You'll also need 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

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

Included files:

This will probably be replaced when Bohemia updates A3 to the beta changes but for now people can distribute it freely both via mirrors and in addon packs.

Credits & Thanks:
Original credit for the change goes to defunkt, I only converted it over and tested it.

- the compass is about 10% or so larger, similar in size to how ACE had it.
