Short description: Heli Improvement Mod - Open some doors and FFV
Date: 2015-03-09 09:47
This mod alows you to use the open-door-actions of some BIS helicopters and use FFV from specific passenger-seats.
Use FFV (fire-from-vehicle) and backdoor-actions of:
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:
You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
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.
- If you go into aiming-mode on a FFV-position in Kajman you will only see the mid-part of the rotor in front of you...this happend with update 1.40. Thx BIS!
- FFV possible although doors are closed. I'll try to solve this later.
- You can shoot through parts of the vehicles (floor, walls) from FFV-positions. I tried to manage an acceptable shooting-angle-to-bug-ratio.
This is a very early version, full of bugs.
I'll include a 'stringtable.xml' in the next update to use proper names for FFV-positions.
For bug-report and feedback please use the forums page.
Currently I've got no idea how to implement the M900-, Huron- and Taru-doors feature, because of BIS ".ebo" (encrypted pbo), but I'll give it a try! As a temporary solution I suggest you to use parts of my HeliDoor Script (http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=27385).
Please report any bugs, I'll work on some solutions. If there are any acceptable...
