  1. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2635818948 This addon provides a framework for ARMA to communicate with Arduinos and any other device that can connect to or emulate a Windows COM port This addon is not currently recognized by BattleEye - You will need to disable BattleEye to experiment with this addon This addon does not do anything on its own - it provides a framework for people to develop code to communicate with devices connected to COM ports. The extension that powers this framework is written by GoogleBen: https://github.com/googleben/ArmaCOM The GitHub link above provides documentation on how to utilize ARMA COM. I will be developing examples for folks to check out in the near future. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Example 1: LED Control (Switch an LED on the Arduino on and off using a laptop in game) Arduino Code: https://github.com/FatLurch/ARMA_LED ARMA Mission: https://github.com/FatLurch/TEST_ARMACOM.vr/
  2. Thanks KeyCat! I added the first example mission and sketch in the original post.
  3. This addon sets up all (supported) helicopters for ACE fast-roping by default when they spawn. This is intended to allow for fast-roping on assets spawned in the game without needing Zeus to add the FRIES system to a given helicopter. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2634777508 https://github.com/FatLurch/FFA

    This addon modifies supported vehicles to use ammocan objects that can be loaded into a vehicle inventory. Players are able to manipulate these ammocans directly so extra ammocans can be added to the vehicle in the field. This also allows you to load more ammo than vehicles carry by default. Additionally, mounted weapons now reload more like other small arms in game, requiring you to hit R to reload and allowing you to reload partially expended magazines I have a bad habit of not keeping this info up to date. Check the Steam page for the latest features! Steam Link: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2162698437 GitHub link: https://github.com/FatLurch/Ammocan YouTube Demonstration: This is designed to work in SP, MP and Dedicated with human and AI vehicle crews and gunners. More features are planned and more vehicles and their vehicle turrets will be supported. Please note that static turrets are not currently supported, due to their lack of inventory. Please note: I can incorporate any vehicle into my mod without REQUIRING that addon as a dependency - I just use classnames. With this in mind, I'd like to incorporate as many reasonable additions as possible, so keep 'em coming! ***For best results, use with the Vehicle Loadout mod, to save vehicle profiles with additional ammo! https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2161671937 Supported Addons: Vanilla West Prairie Fire DLC RHS USAF CUP 3CB Vurtual's HMMWV Foxhound's LPPV BWMod FFAA Mod HAFM Mod Supported Ammo Features: Manual reloads (press R) Support for SP, MP and Dedicated Ability to Load/Unload Turret Ammunition to/from ground vehicles Tested & compatible with ALiVE and Zeus spawned vehicles Support for (eventual) addon vehicles without mod dependency Should be compatible with Liberation, Antistasi, etc. (Would love testing feedback) Custom ammocan models Compatible with AI gunners Support for ACE Rearm and other reloading systems (ammo automatically converted when the vehicle inventory is closed) Help Wanted: If anyone is willing and able to model/texture some ammocan, box, magazine variants I'd greatly appreciate the help! I've tried and unfortunately it is just not in my skill set. It took me weeks to come up with the darn M2A1 ammocan model which isn't very good. The GitHub for the project outlines which assets I think are needed so far: https://github.com/FatLurch/Ammocan/issues/40

    Thanks again for the info 10Dozen, Unfortunately my ignorance is getting in my way. I've gone as far as being able to download and dePBO the files. In the case of the AGS30 for example, I can see the .p3d in the folder but I can't view it in Oxygen/Bulldozer, etc. because it's binarized. What techniques do I need to read up on/study to be able to do something like reutilize the AGS30 magazine from these data packs? Thanks for your time and patience!

    I'm interested in working on the mass of various ammocans for this addon. Does anyone have any recommendations beyond the "kg * 22" rule for object weight in ARMA? Thanks in advance!

    Update 2021-09-25 I created an addon to support the Unsung vehicles. This addon also serves as an example to show how you can add new ammo types to ammocan without having to wait for me! See the Ammocan Unsung GitHub for details: https://github.com/FatLurch/Ammocan
