Generic Grey, Camo & Civ Yellow CHANGED - AI now can control the ramp. CHANGED -- Debeach conditions relaxed.
  2. New version uploaded: 3.001 - Bug Fix Release FIXED :Glass lens on Folding mast do not fold. REMOVED :External dependency to Foxhound LPPV CHANGED :De-Beach script activation is too restrictive
  3. 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?

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. PLANNED FOR THE FUTURE Improved and More structured damage. Fixed gun mounts on the fore deck. Several other skins. 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. COMMUNITY COMPATIBILITY It has always been a basic tenant of RKSL Studios design philosophy not to negatively affect other community made content. We do not replace core values or modify anything that will affect the function or experience of others. We are happy to discuss optional compatibility patches, but will not exclusively adapt our addons to anyone else's Mod standards. All RKSL Content is tested against the currently available stable build of the Vanilla game and official expansions. BUGS AND FEEDBACK We would appreciate hearing about any issues or suggestions you have experienced. Please use the Bug Tracker below: LCVP MK5 Bug Tracker KNOWN ISSUES AT RELEASE - See the bug tracker for details Water vapour flows above the deck occasionally Vehicles loaded in cargo in the ViV version don't render correctly when in passenger slot.

  7. I had to read that twice. I thought he was touching men (again). More shiny stuff incoming soonish.
  8. Well I'm sorry to be the cause of wearing out your F5 key. Real life is proving to be a pain. Literally. <grumpymode> I'm actually sat here unwrapping, re-configing and bug squashing on the party night of the year all so people can moan at me :P </grumpymode> I'm not well and its proving hard to focus. I had a set back 8 days before Christmas and it's taking longer than i hoped to recreate what was lost. I don't like (knowingly) releasing incomplete or buggy stuff so I decided to finish all of this rather than just release an incomplete and broken addon. If you would like me to release the addon with diminished features I can...Broken Beta anyone? < --- Genuine Question.

    3CB BAF Weapons

    Would have been nice to know. I've been fielding these key issues for a while now, I've only just discovered its due to the 3CB upload. Reporters have denied having any other RKSL addons installed. This explains so much.

    3CB BAF Weapons

    This is fascinating to discover that 3CB are uploading RKSL content to Steam without consent. I'm looking forward to an explanation for that. This is one of many reasons why you shouldn't re-upload other peoples content without permission. @MitchJC The new versions of RKSL content use a completely new key. It's an issue caused by Da12thmonkey signing the Attachments pack with a different private key to the one I previously used. Once the updates are out in a few days this will not be an issue anymore.
  11. I've modelled the Torpedoes and Depth Charges. Getting them to work properly is another issue. Testing on these hasn't gone well. I've tried several options now, finally settling on a scripted solution. Which isn't really something i wanted to do. (Im really bad at scripting ask Uro) I'm going to leave them as they are for now, which is literally as bombs until i can get another option sorted. Oddly the Wildcat doesn't actually have Dipping sonar in the real world.. Something I never understood since its predecessors all had it and it was seen as an absolutely necessary feature. ASW was a key part of the RN's claim to be able to defend British waters which added yet another nail in the Nimrod's coffin. I must update those banners Yeah the The Spearhead class model was only ever planned to be a static ship/object. I was planning on using it as a base in a mod pack. Its sat there for ages now collecting digital dust. I'll have pick it up again later in 2019.
  12. Merry Christmas to one and all! Have a wonderful time. The plan was to release a few things today. Real life has stopped that. Sadly my plans for the the next few days don't allow any PC time. So, breaking tradition releases will be delayed until i get back. Q) Will the Wildcat get released? A) Yes, the plan is to release a BETA minus a few planned/malfunctioning features followed up with an update in January. Q) When is it going to happen? A) After boxing day and before New Years Eve...probably. Real life permitting. Q) What else are you going to release? A) Several updates to existing addons and a few more unseen surprises and toys these will be spread out over the days after the Wildcat Beta release. I hope you all enjoy the holidays. Be safe, have fun and don't drink and drive. Get a cab. Rock

    Underwater Rocket

    I've had the same experience. Only bullets work. The only way i can see torpedoes working is by scripting. :(
  14. How long is a piece of string :) And I don't mean that in a nasty way. I dont have huge amounts of free time anymore. It was almost due for release early in the year but i got sick. other things took priority and it got sidelined. Right now It still needs a lot of re-work to get it up to the standard im happy with and during the course of some other projects I've learnt a few new things that will make the addon much better. So I'm afraid you just have to wait. @All the armchair critics out there: As much as I love making addons I will ask people to remember, i do this for fun. I do not work for anyone in this community and I do have commitments in the real world. No one has ever actually come and asked whats going on behind the scenes. Only, when they will get addons. "Dance monkey! Dance!" isn't something i respond to. Time permitting some addons will get released and updated as per RKSL Christmas Tradition. Thats all i can say right now. Say it with me folks "It will be done when it's done!"
  15. Use an official ArmA3 version. There is no public ArmA3 version available yet. Any version you find is a hacked version of the ArmA2 2.6xx version released solely for ArmA2. You could also use one of the addons that allow compatibility with ArmA2 that the public addon is actually made for.
