d_finger: "Point a finger at" addon

by
Drill


Description:
d_finger provides visual and easy to use way for infantry to point out a direction to each other.


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.

Usage:
The default keybinding for "point a finger at" action is Ctrl+~ .
When a player activates this action a circle indicator would appear at center of the screen. This indicator would be seen by any other man who is close enough to the player (<= 3 meters) for 2 seconds. This way players could indicate particular point at screen to each other in easy and direct manner.

The feature works only for players which are not in a vehicle (except static vehicles, stationary HMG for example).

Addon supports UAC configuration addon (but doesn't require it), and currently it is the only way to change the keybinging for the action and color and transparency of the indicator.

- finger-pointing range increased to 4 meters
- a bit decreased size of the indicator circle
