Really nice mod, i have been looking for some thermal imaging improvements for a long time! Always thought the vanilla Arma thermal imaging System is way to crispy and clear.


Two things came to my/our attention while testing:


1. your mod doesnt care if thermal imaging is deactivated for a vehicle via script, you're always able to activate it --> missions with deactivated thermal get too easy

2. is it possible to force the usage of this mod instead of normal thermal imaging? if someone doesnt know, he will activate thermal vision by pressing "N" and thus not activate the improved version --> maybe overwrite the "N" key or the vanilla thermal imaging itself?


Not really sure if you could influence those two issues, thats just what my community thought while testing your mod.
