[HMM] Stance Indicator [ALPHA]


Well, I saw a lot of people were looking for a stance indicator for first-person view, so I thought I'd throw something together. It should work fine, I've had a number of guys from my squad test it, but the usual disclaimers apply - your mileage may vary It's possible it'll screw up in some situations, given it relies almost entirely upon animation names (and I suppose it's possible that BIS may not be 100% consistent in their naming). It should be all signed and good to go - the .bikey is included. I've also not tested anything other than 1920x1080 on the normal UI size... but I've utilised safeZones properly, so it should be fine (if it's not, I'll fix it ).

This is a small mod I whipped up to add a stance indicator to first-person view in the Arma 3 Alpha.

  • Shows your stance in first-person mode.
  • Highlights stances that hinder your movement in yellow (in this case, low prone and high prone).
  • Displays stance-based lean status, too!
  • It's a stance indicator... what more do you want?

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/@HMM_StanceIndicator

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=@HMM_StanceIndicator

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