Advanced Civilian Interaction Menu Addon


These are the actions i've scripted up to now:
-order civ to stop
-order civ to go
-order civ to get down
-order civ to get up
-handcuff civ
-lead civ away
-put civ in vehicle
-pull civ out of vehicle
-search civs shirt
-search civs pants
-search civs shoes
-search civs backpack
-question civ
-view civs ID-card
-order civ to follow you
-take and give items from/to civ

These actions are all packed into a interactive dialog, which looks like this:

The dialog for the ID-card looks like this: (The text is still a bit buggy)

Installation / Usage:
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.

How to configure it:
Refer to the first post here.

Because it takes pretty long to open the dialog and click stop,go....
i've also done some hotkey stuff.
You can assign them ingame in:
-Use Action 1: STOP
-Use Action 2: GO
-Use Action 3: GET DOWN
-Use Action 4: GET UP

How to use it ingame:
I will add a detailed description soon.
For now: Spawn some empty vehicles, yourself (BLUFOR), and civs in the editor and play around with it.
