Oooh, that's awesome. The only reason we don't ever have paradrop insertions are the inability to carry a backpack. There was a similar mod in the past but we experienced some bugs with it. I'll give this one a try, thanks!

If it is possible move it to the proper place, please ;) Probably, like in FSF SacVentral mod.

One more question. In multiplayer on dedicated server If I put my backpack on chest then re-enter the server, will my pack be ok? Will it stuck on chest or something? Sorry for my inconvenience.

Btw, I localized version 0.2:

File fn_initialization.sqf

/*

* Author: DerZade

* Description: Initalize the BOC-Mod

*

* Arguments:

* NONE

*

* Return Value:

* NONE

*

* Example:

* call ZADE_BOC_fnc_Initialization;

*

* Public: No

*/

_action = ["Zade_Backpack_onChest", localize "STR_Backpack_on_Chest", "", {[_this select 0] call Zade_BOC_fnc_BackpackOnChest;}, {(_this select 0) getVariable ["Zade_ChestBackpack",""] == "" and backpack (_this select 0) != ""}] call ace_interact_menu_fnc_createAction;

[player, 1, ["ACE_SelfActions", "ACE_Equipment"], _action] call ace_interact_menu_fnc_addActionToObject;

_action = ["Zade_Backpack_onBack", localize "STR_Backpack_on_Back", "", {[_this select 0] call Zade_BOC_fnc_BackpackOnBack;}, {(_this select 0) getVariable ["Zade_ChestBackpack",""] != "" and backpack (_this select 0) == ""}] call ace_interact_menu_fnc_createAction;

[player, 1, ["ACE_SelfActions", "ACE_Equipment"], _action] call ace_interact_menu_fnc_addActionToObject;

player addEventHandler ["Respawn",{call ZADE_BOC_fnc_initialization;}];

And stringtable.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<Project name="ZADE BOC">

<Package name="Localization">

<Key ID="STR_Backpack_on_Chest">

<Original>Backpack on Chest</Original>

<Russian>Рюкзак на грудь</Russian>

</Key>

<Key ID="STR_Backpack_on_Back">

<Original>Backpack on Back</Original>

<Russian>Рюкзак на Ñпину</Russian>

</Key>

</Package>

</Project>

Yes ACE3 is completely Open Source, but I want to finish some features before I would like to see it implemented into ACE.

Hmm I dont get the option to move the backpack to my chest.

Using the latest version of ACE 3.0.1

Using latest version of CBA aswell

Modline: @CBA_A3,@AllInArmaTerrainPack,@ace,@ZADE_BOC

RPT: http://pastebin.com/25Sh16GY

It is not shown in the ACE self-interaction menu in the equipment tab?

I'm running the same modset and its working for me
