Arma3 Inventory Items
This Mod adds several new & usable inventory items that can be used just as they are with your own scripts, but also come with scripting that lets you combine or put them to use. f.e. drink soda, make fire, chop trees, place camera and broadcast picture to your smartphone (early stage but functional), fill fuelcan, fuel vehicles, and so on...
In addition this mod delivers 2 new Modules for use in the editor. Place a3Items_Module (found in menu "misc") and select from its menu wether you want survival simulation (hunger/thirst/sickness/simple Jump on custom key 2) for all playableunits in your mission (MP compatible).
Place the optional Lootspawn_Module wherever you want loot to spawn within buildings.. customize it in the editor: spawn distance, kind of loot, probability of loot, and so on..
List of Items:
Handycam (double click and activate while smartphone in your inventory by hitting custom key 3)

Meat (you can eat this, and this is the only model, besides the knife, that is not from Bohemia. It looks pretty shitty without textures - but hey, it clearly shows why I stick to scripting instead of modeling)
I might have forgotten something cause I´m constantly working on this mod right now..
Basically it offers a very easy way to add a rather complete survival simulation for mission builders by only placing the a3items Module anywhere on the map (once). Optional add Loot with a Lootspawn Module for every Loot area. Lurking for feedback and further ideas..
I have tested this Mod on dedicated server. Seems to be fully MP and of course SP compatible. Also made a version (not included) that works with inidbi persistent database.
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
