The Recoil Fix Mod [ALPHA]


This softens the new recoil of ArmA 3 to a level close of the one of Arma 2 by initiating that command: setUnitRecoilCoefficient 0.43

This mod follows the following thread I initiated on the BI forums.
This is my first mod. I waited for someone to make it, but as it won't happen, I decided to create it.
To my knowledge, it works well and is very simple

Team switching is supported.
Obviously, it's made for SP testing, as in MP it would be considered as a cheat.

Please note that doesn't affect the hardcoded "boucing aim" ArmA 3 has introduced but that reduces significantly the upward movement and allows group shot in single fire mode (what I missed the most). I think that that mod could even please the fans of the new recoil for that reason
The LMG is at last controllable in standing stance and almost steady when prone, as it should be due to its caliber and firing rate.

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. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name\

You'll also need to 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:

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.
