C-RAM (Land based Phalanx Weapon System)


This is the Alpha release of my c-ram addon. As so it is a wip and any input our suggestions are welcome.
The model is based on the real C-RAM weapon system.
As this is an early release MP compatibility has not been fully tested yet.
This addon does not have a c-ram script (i suck at scripting) but there are several people working on them and one already released.
View readme for full list of features and functionality.

custom ammo, magazine and weapon classes.
wreck model with effects.
damage textures.
supply with 4 first aid kits.
uses m61-A1 Vulcan cannon with 3 4000rnd mags with airburst ammo.
gunner and commander seats.
commander has an independent laser targeting sight.
the AI gunner will only fire at air targets.
the AI gunner will fire at ground targets targeted with a laser designator.

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:

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.
