A3G Spectator Cam


This is a simple camera script that you can put in any mission, regardless if you use any mods or not, however it was originally made to be used with AGM.

tags units of all factions
marks unconscious units with a circle instead of a dot (if you use AGM)
3 camera modes: free, 3rd person, 1st person
3 vision modes: normal, nightvision, thermal vision
displays condition of units (fatigue, blood level and pain)
compatible with Acre and TFAR
close groups get marked individually, distant groups are shown with a group symbol
displays how many players are left alive and how many are unconscious (useful for admins!)
automatically ends mission when last player dies

Installation / Usage:
copy the description.ext and the a3g-spectatorcam folder in your missions folder
if you already have a description.ext do the following:
- copy the contents of my description.ext into yours
- make sure you don't have any duplicate settings like
respawn = 1;
respawn = 3;
make sure you don't declare CfgFunctions or RscTitles twice but instead merge them so it looks like this
class CfgFunctions {
  #include "a3g-spectatorcam\CfgFunctions.hpp"
  #include "somefile.hpp"

That's it! Once the camera starts up a help dialog will show you how to control the camera.

Keybind Usage
H Show/Hide help
WASD General movement
QE Vertical movement
Shift Faster movement
Alt Slower movement
N Default vision/night vision/thermal vision
Space Free cam/3rd person/1st person - aim at unit to spectate
Arrow left/right Switch to previous/next player

There might still be some bugs and I will continue work on this, but it works quite well already. If you have any suggestions or feature requests let me know, your best bet would be creating an issue on Github.
