Observation Night Skyby
This is some kind of example addon what can you do in Arma engine. Please do not ask me why some doen't work or why sometimes game crash.
Mod using own library which is helping calculate some data for satellites, because it cannot be done ingame.
When the library is called, it can connect to internet for downloading TLE data. These files are not dangerous for your PC, they only contains data for calculating satellites. Files are stored in @ObservationNightSky/tle.
Please if you don't know what are TLE data are, please go to Wikipedia for more info.
To install Observation Night Sky 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.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.
For usage instructions and information of how to use the Observation Night Sky please refer to the included documentation and/or example mission.
