Paddle Mod

In 1 collection by Feint
11 items
This mod modifies most boats by giving them a killswitch for the engine and the ability to paddle the boat around silently. You can also use ropes with the boats for landmarking while swimming and as an anchor. The Zodiac-style boats receive improved maneuverability and engine power. You can also bury or camouflage the Zodiacs using bushes found nearby as well as use the ropes of the Zodiacs for towing.

Paddle Mod - Permission

The author of the Burnes AAV just used the code that I wrote for the Paddle Mod as a base for the work that he did on that AAV (basically how it would move and turn). That's all.

OK, I just updated to version 3.6 which removes isServer from a few of the scripts. This should fix the problem. Let me know if there are any new bugs that show up in your gameplay.

Hi Adam, I don't like doing this for several reasons, the main one being that I lose control over the code. When I've done it in the past, people come to me complaining about how something is broken. Then I find out that someone has changed my code without authorization and then someone else is asking me to fix it. You can include this mod in a Steam Collection, but no I would prefer that you not download it, repackage it and then reupload it as a mod combined with others. Sorry for the inconvenience with your users, but it's not that inconvenient to subscribe to content on Steam for Arma 3.

I was wondering if it was possible to include your mod into my Mod pack for my community, of course giving you full credit for your work!

This will help me reduce the # of mods needed to join the server!


Best Regards

Hi FoeHammer, I have never been clear on the whole isServer thing. Can you send me a message on my website if you know how to fix this? Thanks in advance. I think a few other people reported this problem.

Hello Feint great mod and I really enjoy it. The only issue we are having is that when we run the mod on our Server it wont allow you to throw the rop and bring it on shore and bury said boat. We have found out that In the fnc_ropeOnOff.sqf, the whole funciton is encapsulated by an isServer check. This means that this function can only be used in a singleplayer enviornment. If possible can this be changed?
