AWESome : Aerial Warfare Enhanced Somehow Makes ARMA 3's flight environments more realistic (GWPS, wind effect, etc.). Recommended to use with ACE since it will enable ACE Interaction instead of vanilla actions and give more specific weather data on ATIS. This addon is SP/MP capable and basically works as a client-side mod, and gives some additional features when used on both client/server. Although this addon is licensed under CC BY-NC-ND 4.0, feel free to contact me if you need any code from this addon for applications. ---------------- Features 1. Voice Informer, GPWS(Ground Proximity Warning) GPWS(incl. Voice Informer) has three modes: B747, F-16 and Rita. B747's GPWS has more familiar sounds from commercial airliners including altitude informers during landing. Suitable for large transport or support planes. F-16's ♥♥♥♥♥ing Betty GPWS includes missile warning and other sound-warnings (voice informers). Gives basic warnings such as: Counter; Warning; Caution; etc., and is suitable for fighter planes. Rita is a Russian voice informer which works similar to ♥♥♥♥♥ing Betty, but speaks Russian and has fewer features(it's mainly because I don't speak Russian, and therefore I can't find enough sound files). You can set default setting for GPWS in addon settings which will override plane's default GPWS mode setting and set GPWS mode to what you want when getting in a plane. However, if someone with this addon is in or has been in the plane, the GPWS mode will not change and stay as it was. 2. Realistic Aerodynamics (drag, lift, etc.) Basic drag model is replaced with an enhanced model so that it better reflects the drag in real life. This will generate drag that's much more complicated than a simple polynomial function and create many effects such as the so-called 'Sound barrier'. Vehicle's fuel status and weapon loadout will now affect mass and aerodynamic characteristics of the vehicle, resulting in high aerodynamic drag and lowered stability when armed heavily. This also brings air density and wind into consideration. Air density is calculated based on altitude, temperature and humidity which gets more accurate if ACE3 weather is used together. Can enable/disable at addon settings (enabled as default), and effects of wind can be adjusted with "Wind Multiplier" setting. 3. ATC (Air Traffic Controller) Radar Screen Shows friendly & civilian planes on map with name, speed, altitude, and heading. Useful when commanding multiple planes. Information lines are consisted of the following three lines : Pilot's Name or Callsign Speed Altitude Heading(deg) Pilot name/callsign setting and units for speed & altitude can be changed at addon settings tab. Supports kph/knot for speed and meter/feet for altitude. Note that unit callsign uses the unit's group ID and therefore cannot distinguish between planes in a same group. To enable this feature, you need to add the following code to the target object's init field: [this] call orbis_atc_fnc_addRadarScreen; 4. ATIS (Automatic Terminal Information Service) Plays ATIS radio broadcast using real in-game atmospheric data. Provides wind, visibility, etc. Temperature, dew point, QNH will be provided when ACE Weather is enabled. With basic settings, ATIS provides real-time data, but with addon setting changed, ATIS data should be updated on ground To let the controller manually update the data, disable 'Real-time ATIS data update' option in addon setting, and add the following code to the target object's init field: [this] call orbis_atc_fnc_addATCConsole; 5. Ground System Provides towing vehicle & system for all planes. Works in MP and does not require other players to use this addon for towing their planes. Offroad vehicles are used as towing cars, and can tow planes by deploying towbar via Interaction / Action outside the vehicle. Once the towbar is deployed, place target plane's front gear at the end of the towbar, then use Action to connect target plane to the towbar. After towing around, stop the vehicle and disconnect target plane using Action. NOTICE : moving too fast may occur collisions, so drive with caution when towing. 6. Cockpit Utility Adds camera shake feature reflecting the vehicle's speed and status including the touchdown speed, and checklists feature for fixed-wing pilots which provides decision speed, rotate speed, landing speed and many more automatically filled in. This helps pilots to check if they have anything forgotten and gives reference speeds for takeoff and landing. ---------------- Issue Tracking To report issues, please use Github's issue tracker https://github.com/mgkid3310/AWESome/issues ---------------- Steam Workshop You can subscribe this addon on Steam Workshop https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1301399507 ---------------- BI Forum thread For more specific update notes, please visit BI forum thread https://forums.bohemia.net/forums/topic/217012-awesome-aerial-warfare-enhanced-somehow/ ---------------- Authors (Contributors) Orbis2358 (email@example.com) : Project Manager & Programmer
Sorry for criticism but I just want to help. Arma 3 helicopters FM not only terrible, but also initially wrong. In advanced FM mode when you pull joystick(cyclic stick) to do G-turn, rotor RPM is dramatically decreasing. IRL rotor RPM doesn't decreasing by G-turns(maneuvers), but instead they(RPM) increasing, because autorotation happens. Fix this problem please, because its ruining all flight experience in advanced mode.
