Zodiac CRRC - Assault Boat

by
Karneck


Description:
With the release of FFV, I finally am ready to release a small project I've been working on the last 2 months.

If anyone doesn't care for the current Assault Boat for the following reasons:
- Noise and overall Sound is terrible or far too loud to attempt to talk over.
- Top Speed is too slow for you.
- The "FFV" is extremely limited.
- The handling/turn radius is extremely sluggish.
- The reverse speed is too fast.

Then let me introduce you to the Zodiac CRRC.
It expands the "FFV" to allow you to shoot in a *180 (Looks slightly funky, but better then only looking in one direction.)
It features sounds from the ARMA 2 Zodiac CRRC.
Come's with a built-in pack and unpacking script so you can carry your boat anywhere.
And has a custom gearbox designed to help with speeds between Q, W and E. Also for when going in reverse. Meaning that if you use mods like AGM or CSE, you won't rocket forward and hit something and knock yourself out.

The handling has been modified so that the boat is maneuverable at slow speeds, although when traveling at top speed (50 km/h) it will turn on a dime, sadly you cannot configure turn radius depending on what speed you are at. (Again, can look alittle funky.)


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.

Changelog:
v1.02.1
- Hotfix to fix sound pathing for working sounds.

v1.02
- mades it so the driver has radar enabled so he can actually see what bearing he is going at. As far as I could tell there was no way to enable the compass for him to use. So this was the only solution I could think of.
- Also edited the overall noise to be reduced "slightly".

v1.01
- Updated to not have the bow so high up in the air
- continued to fine tune the handling
- other small adjustments to only improve the boat

v0.1
- first release
