Stance Indicator [ALPHA]


I didn't like the existing addons for stance indicators, so I created my own but since I don't know how to create addons I made it a script.

Arma 3 has three basic stances: STAND, CROUCH and PRONE. Each main stance have 3 "sub" stances: UP, MIDDLE, DOWN. I wanted the indicator to be as simple and small as possible, so I created it dividing a box in three columns, the first and last columns show the STEP LEFT / RIGHT stances (note that this is not the leaning done by Q / E keys, it's the adjust stance key + A / D). The center column is divided in 3 rows, each represents one of the main stances. The top one is STAND, the middle one is CROUCH, and the bottom one is PRONE. When one of these rows are 100% filled with color it represents the UP sub-stance, when it's half full it's the MIDDLE sub-stance, when it's a quarter full it's the DOWN sub-stance.

I had many different ideas on how to do the indicator and where to show it on the screen, but it took me a few hours to do each one so I only made two.

Installation / Usage:
Execute it in your mission init.sqf file with something like:
_null = [] execvm "stanceIndicator\stanceIndicator.sqf";

To do:
- Hide indicator when pressing ESC.
- Hide indicator in 3rd person view, when inside vehicle, etc.
- Make sure it works fine in all screen sizes (only tested on 1920x1080 resolution 16:9 aspect ratio).

Credits & Thanks:
To the creator(s) of [HMM] Stance Indicator. Even tho I didn't used their code, I read it before creating my indicator so some parts are similar.
