Digital Compass Bearing Mod [ALPHA]

by
BearBison


Description:
This adds the ability to have a digital compass heading (bearing) in either a hint box or the original text mode which can be toggled on or off.

Note:
The k (default compass) key is the toggle key

You can download the script version here: Digital Compass Bearing Script.


Installation:
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
You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder.

Place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".

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
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:
-mod=@mod_name;@mod_name2;@mod_name3;@mod_name4;@mod_name5

Note:
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.

Usage:
Changing the display style:
To change from the new hint method of display to the older text method, open the file userconfig\BEARB_CH\BEARB_CH_Settings.hpp and edit the value for BEARB_compassheading_old from false to true:
/*
BEARB Compass Heading Settings file
Determines if the old (text) or the new (hint) display method is used for the digital compass bearing
false = new style (in hint message)
true = old style (in text on screen)
Created by [RIP]BearBison
*/
BEARB_compassheading_old = false;
