    NIArms Release Thread

    Spot on, da12thMonkey! 3D sights need short, large diameter bodies to make work with ARMA. (Or a new PIP technique!) I would love to have done the low power short dot magnifications in 3D and switched to 2D for the higher powers but it wasn't possible for all the reasons da12thMonkey describes. With regards to magnification, I just felt the S&B sights would be overpowered compared to vanilla sights / other game assets if I used BI conventions so to keep things in balance, chose to do the WFOV technique for zoom levels. And having to use 2D sight techniques for every zoom resulted in the slightly odd low power/wide angle zoom to replicate what the players are used to as an 'un-zoomed' image. So I would definitely NOT claim what I am doing is more correct than Toadie. (In fact I'd say I was 'wrong' - I just did not want to abuse game mechanics / make imbalanced equipment with my mods.) Toadie's stuff is awesome (as is da12thMonkey's) and much more complete than my mods. Their work inspired me to have a go at mod making. Looking forward to whatever they decide to make next!
  3. The issue I discovered with the Performance Binary breaking the MicroDGR GPS seems to be back with the latest update to ARMA. Anyone else got this issue?

    IIIE Gear Pack

    Anyone else get a config error relating to TFR radios when running this? I'm running the older TFR 0.9.12 not the latest 1.x beta. Not sure if that's related. The exact error is: No entry 'bin\config.bin/CfgVehicles/TFAR_anprc155.scope'.
  5. Rolling back from the Arma3 performance binary to the stable branch seems to have fixed this issue...
  6. I've run into a rather odd problem recently with ACE3 MicroDagr. The displayed direction now only seems to be able to hold one of 4 states (regardless of MicroDagr mode) These are 45.0deg, 135.5deg, 225.0deg and 314.5deg. I.e. the reading will snap to the closest of these values regardless of what direction I'm actually facing. I get this behaviour if I only ACE3 and CBA so it does not look like a mod conflict issue. I've also physically removed ACE3 and re-installed it through Steam which has not fixed it. Additionally, I've removed my *Player*.vars.Arma3Profile in case that had become corrupt which also had no effect. Any other in game compass/direction device (e.g. vanilla GPS etc.) is unaffected. Does anyone have any idea as to what causes this or what could fix it?

    JSRS SOUNDMOD - Canceled

    Thank you SOOOO much for your work on this mod over the years. It's a superb enhancement to immersion within ARMA. I can only echo gogsworld's statement of being really sorry that circumstances now mean that you can't continue with the mod. Best wishes

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    Thanks for the link to the 'For Developers' page - I'd completely forgotten about that! The mod I'm making compatible is my own - so no issues there. I agree that I'm not changing any RHS content so legally think there is no issue but as a (much smaller scale!) mod maker myself, thought I should check first - even if it's purely just for courtesies sake.

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    I wasn't sure if this was the best place to post this but... I was hoping to make a mod I'm working on compatible with RHS gripods / fwd lower rail attachments. Do I need to ask permission first before attempting this? (And if the answer is yes, may I have permission, please?)

    Thanks VERY much!

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    I'm looking at making a future mod compatible with RHS's M249 magazine proxies. One thing that (I think!) makes this tricky is the M249 has the ability to load STANAG magazines in an adaptor which means the mag proxy's position and rotation is set to use this STANAG adaptor. (Meaning the box mags are quite strange rotations and locations from where you might first expect them) I don't suppose anyone knows and would be prepared to share the relative rotation and position of the softpack and boxmags from the proxy would they? It would save me a LOT of trial and error tweaking....

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    But I think the main point was it was intentional/for game play purposes so not an oversight. And a big thanks to the whole RHS mod team. Excellent stuff! Really liking the Dev branch releases on Steam as well. (Quite excited by the new content in there too!)

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    Understood - thanks for the quick reply. It would have been nice if items had both a weight and volume statistic when the game was written!
  14. Steve 161st

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    Let me know if you'd rather this goes in the feedback tracker - but are the weights of the 7.62x51 M240 boxes not significantly too light? This might be deliberate for game play but most of RHS's weights are normally very accurate so thought this might be an oversight? The 50rnd soft packs look about right but the 100rnd box is less than 50% heavier.

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    As an observation, both in the standard and dev build of USAF, 5.56x45 PMAGs appear to be slightly offset to the right of the weapon. (Metal/STANAG mags do look to be centred properly.) By the way, many thanks for adjusting/correcting these mag widths in the dev version.
  16. In game, just go to 'Options -> addon options' and it's very likely the very first item on the drop down list will be ACE Advanced Ballistics. Just turn that off. The developers really have made it extremely easy to customise these days... There's masses of options in that menu to customise ACE to exactly how you want it. Simples
  17. I'm pretty sure with the way the ACE3 team has implemented CBA settings, you can now enable and disable just about anything you want without deleting pbos. All of the modules are very sensibly/helpfully named so I'd suggest going through all the options and seeing what you want and don't want.
  18. That's probably more to do with ACE's barrel length simulation effect on bullet velocity
  19. Is there not a setting you can turn off to do this? (As opposed to deleting .pbos?)

    CZ BREN 2

    I've just pinged you a quick PM with a small example which might be helpful. Keep up the great work!

    CZ BREN 2

    @reconteam - I believe Qinetix has represented these correctly. Have a look at CZ's web site if you are unsure. They are also looking to deliver a 16" barrel 7.62x51mm Battle Rifle version at some point this year.

    CZ BREN 2

    Really like this mod @Qinetix - great work! As an observation, when using JSRS with this mod, the weapon still keeps the Vanilla sounds - suggesting you re-config-ed this from scratch. Was this for any particular reason? Inheriting the Spar16 base class might allow easier 'automatic' replacement of Vanilla sounds with JSRS (or Dynasound) alternatives if you wanted such behaviour.

    Panavia Tornado AWS

    Additionally, the RHS PIP cockpit mirror seems to show something inside the plane. The LHS mirror seems to work correctly, though. Huge fan of the tornado so thanks for bringing us this mod!

    DUI - Squad Radar

    Really like the new additions. Thanks!

    DUI - Squad Radar

    Already lots of great options to customise but how difficult would it to be to have an option that restricts what angle the radar can show? E.g. would it be possible to limit what the radar shows to just the 'front hemisphere' i.e. only anything within 90 degrees of the view direction vector? So like an occlusion controlled by an angle setting (from view direction vector.)
