FINDING THE ADDON IN THE EDITOR

UK Armed Forces > Boats

 

ADDON FEATURES

  • 3x Decal options switchable in EDEN Attributes: 
  1. Royal Navy,
  2. Royal Marines
  3. Generic - As requested by several Dutch Community members
  4. OPFOR Camo
  5. Ind Generic Grey
  6. Blufor  Generic Grey
  7. Civ Yellow
  • NV/Thermal Obs camera in Commander's turret
  • 2x Firing-From-Vehicles Turrets (Personnel Version only).
  • Option to open/close covers in EDEN attributes (Personnel Version only).
  • ViV can transport vehicles upto 12,000kg
  • De-Beaching Option - You will inevitably beach this at some point.  If you don't have another vehicle to push it back this will save you.  In the Driver's position at 0Kph you will see an option appear "De-beach" - this gives you a short shove backwards. Repeat as necessary until you are afloat again.

A WORD ABOUT REALISM AND A SENSE OF HUMOUR

We strive to make all our addons as realistic as the game engine and our own capabilities allow.  We all know that ArmA has some interesting moments with PhysX while we have tried to limit these without compromising the addon... things just happen sometimes. Do let us know.  But also accept that we may not be able to fix everything.

Good effort Rock, it looks absolutely waz. Not sure the "De-beaching" option is really needed though because no LCVP in history has ever got close enough to the shore to get stuck.

Trust me its needed.  No one in testing had got a 0 Fail rate. Everyone beached it atleast once or twice.

Congratulations for the release 👍

 

Three things I noticed while playing around with it for a few minutes:

1. The addon seems to have a dependency for the foxhound configured - it obviously works fine without it, I am assuming it´s just a config entry that you forgot to get rid of?

2. When folding the mast, the lights don´t fold with it. This causes the lights to float in the air.

3. The de-beaching option only appears when the LCVP is truly stand-still. On higher incline beaches/welldecks + higher waves this can mean that the option doesn´t appear which in turn can cause you to be permanently stuck without it. A little more movement tolerance for the option to appear would help in that regard imo.

Errors 1 & 2 are now fixed the update will be pushed in the morning.

 

Error 3 - Debeaching.  The reason its locked down so tightly was to make it a last resort kind of thing. Also to prevent cheating/griefing with it.  The first few versions were limited to >5kph and eventually 1kph.  Hemorrhoid found a way to cause havoc in the Welldeck of Albion.  hence why you have to be static.  

 

Which LPD are you clashing on?

I used the ATLAS LHD (CUP or the new standalone one can be used). Probably worth noting that it really only is a problem when waves are at ~30% or more.
