Lao Fei Mao 3rd person

by
Lao Fei Mao


Description:
I by myself don't like the default 3rd person view of infantry, cars, tank, jets and helos. For example, I wish I could see my whole body as an infantry, to see bigger size of gunship while flying it....
So I made some configs for my personal use and like to share them to those who have the same appetite:
  • Mao_Sights_Air.pbo
      get a closer 3rd view of all BIS's jets and helicopters,and keep the in-cockpit FOV the same as you out of it, disable the zoom-in when click the right mouse button.
  • Mao_Sights_Boats.pbo
      get a better 3rd view of all BIS's boats,and keep the in-cockpit FOV the same as you out of it, disable the zoom-in when click the right mouse button.
  • Mao_Sights_Man.pbo
      whole body 3rd person view.
  • Mao_Sights_Static.pbo
      get a closer 3rd view of all BIS's static weapons,and keep the in-cockpit FOV the same as you out of it, disable the zoom-in when click the right mouse button.
  • Mao_Sights_Tracked.pbo
      get a better 3rd view of all BIS's boats,and keep the in-cockpit FOV the same as you out of it, disable the zoom-in when click the right mouse button.
  • Mao_Sights_Weapons.pbo
      a slightly auto zoom in while aiming if you use the ironsight,reddot, holosight.
  • Mao_Sights_Wheeled.pbo
      get a better 3rd view of all BIS's boats,and keep the in-cockpit FOV the same as you out of it, disable the zoom-in when click the right mouse button.
  • Mao_Anims_Fix.pbo
      increase the stability while aiming, especially when you are in prone.
  • Mao_blood_mist_a3.pbo
      you could see the blood mist when a bullet hit the body, this is an updated version from my last one, if you got the old one, delete it.
  • Mao_Bullet_Hits_Value.pbo
      increase bullet hit value, so that you could take a enemy down by 1 or 2 rounds, I really hate in current 1.08version, you have to strafe a bunch of ammo to waste a bad guy.
  • Mao_Muzzle_Smoke.pbo
      decrased the muzzle smoke density so that the FPS won't drop drastically while you auto fire a rifle or machinegun with a high zoom rate optic.
  • Mao_Tracer.pbo
      make each fire has its tracer no matter you have a tracer mag or not, may not be realistic but could increase the atmosphere while fighting.

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\addons\

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_name1\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\

When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons and/or mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.

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:
-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.
