MRB Sea Vessel Visibility

mr burns

Another follow up to my MRB Air Visibility & MRB Vehicle Visibility addons.

This addon makes all sea vessels in ArmA 3 visible across your set view-distance.
Originally these assets would only adhere to object view-distance, which for obvious reasons is no optimal solution.

In technical terms this addon puts all sea vessels into "landmark" state.
(which is kinda underused anyway with only 4 or 5 objects taking advantage of it - the carrier being one of those for instance).

The engine hard limit on "landmarks" for statics lies at 500 objects, according to the biki:
Disclaimer: I have´nt tested what happens when you put 501 entities

To install MRB Sea Vessel Visibility 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.

Included files:
- mrb_a3_seavesselvisibility.pbo

Known issues:
- Whilst this enables you to see ships/boats perfectly fine, you still cannot see any objects between
you and your target (depending on your object view distance), this might lead to wonky situations.

Decide for yourself if the benefits outweigh the downsides.
