Knock on Tanks
This mod adds an ACE interaction with vehicles allowing you to knock on them, alerting the crew inside.
For example, an infantry element can use it to get the attention of a friendly tank crew, so the TC can pop his hatch and they can communicate.
When you knock on a vehicle it plays a sound for anyone inside the vehicle/near the vehicle, and if the variable is set to true it also shows a hint.
Works on any ground vehicle that inherits from Wheeled_APC or Tank.
- These can be placed in your mission's init.sqf to change certain things about the mod:
BRIDGE_vehicleknock_showHint = true;
- Enables a hint when you knock on a vehicle/your vehicle gets knocked on. Defaults to false.
BRIDGE_vehicleknock_blacklist_classnames = ;
BRIDGE_vehicleknock_blacklist_configInheritance = ;
- Allows you to blacklist a classname or a config inheritance chain. Both default to empty arrays (not blacklisting anything).
BRIDGE_vehicleknock_whitelist_classnames = ;
BRIDGE_vehicleknock_whitelist_configInheritance = ;
- Allows you to allow a classname or config inheritance chain that the blacklist would have blocked. Both default to empty arrays (not blacklisting anything).
To install the Knock on Tanks you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
