CTab Blufor Tracker v2.2.3

Description
Original code by Riouken, edit by IceBadger
Thanks to those who have worked on this mod!

Hopefully this fixes any errors the mod used to throw, for now this is all this version of the mod does. I may plan to add more features in the future. (Like more icons, ACE integration and so on)

Original: http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=22992


Description:
cTab, "The Commander's Tablet", is an Arma 3 add-on that provides players with quick access to command and control features including Blue-Force Tracker, UAV video and control interfaces and unit helmet camera access.
The add-on includes a Rugged Tablet for command units, a field-portable Android Device for tactical units, in-vehicle map devices, and helmet mounted cameras for non-command units.


Features:
Commander's tablet
Working FBCB2 Blue Force Tracker system
User placed makers - place markers for enemy, medical and general purpose
Tracks all crewed Bluefor Military vehicles
Tracks any dismounted troops with the proper equipment
Android based Blue Force Tracker
MicroDAGR hand-held GPS with Blue Force Tracking
Commanders Tablet can view live UAV streams
Commanders Tablet can view live Helmet Cam streams (make sure to have Picture in Picture (PIP) turned on in your video settings!)
Vehicle mounted FBCB2 interface, Blue Force Tracking
Tactical Awareness Display (TAD) for air vehicles, Blue Force Tracking
This system is available to only one side at a time, there is a mission configurable parameter to choose sides
None of the markers or icons show on maps, need one of the devices to view


Controls:
"H" This key is used to open and close whatever cTab device is available to you, showing the "small" version where available. It can also be used to close UAV view. "CTRL" + "H" Opens and closes the secondary view mode of the cTab device available to you. This would usually be the "large" version. "ALT" + "H" Opens and closes an alternative cTab device that you may have available (i.e. when a pilot carrying a tablet, this will open the tablet). "LEFT DOUBLE-CLICK" Opens dialog to place markers at mouse cursor location. Not available on MicroDAGR "DEL" Deletes the highlighted user placed marker under your cursor. "F1" Change to Blue Force Tracker on tablet. "F2" Change to UAV cameras on tablet. "F3" Change to helmet cameras on tablet. "F4" Change to Message mode on tablet. "F5" Toggles map tools (grid/elevation/range/direction to mouse cursor). "F6" Toggles map mode (satellite/topographical/black). "F7" Center map on current position. "CTRL" + "SHIFT" "PAGE_UP" Zoom in on the "small" TAD, MicroDAGR and Android. "CTRL" + "SHIFT" "PAGE_DOWN" Zoom out on the "small" TAD, MicroDAGR and Android. "ESC" Closes all interactive cTab devices (i.e. all but the "small" variants) as well as the UAV view.
(can be changed by editing "...\Arma 3\userconfig\cTab\ctab_settings.hpp" in notepad)


Define vehicle types that have FBCB2 or TAD available

To configure the list of vehicle types that have FBCB2 or TAD available, edit the "cTab_vehicleClass_has_FBCB2" and "cTab_vehicleClass_has_TAD" arrays in the configuration file on the server, which can be found in the ArmA 3 folder "...\Arma 3\userconfig\cTab\ctab_settings.hpp".
class cTab_settings { cTab_vehicleClass_has_FBCB2[] = {"MRAP_01_base_F","MRAP_02_base_F","MRAP_03_base_F","Wheeled_APC_F","Tank","Truck_01_base_F","Truck_03_base_F"}; cTab_vehicleClass_has_TAD[] = {"Helicopter","Plane"}; };
Note: This is a server-side setting, i.e. whatever is set on the client-side userconfig will be overridden by the userconfig on the server.


Define helmet classes with enabled helmet camera

To configure the list of helmet classes that enable helmet cameras, edit the "cTab_helmetClass_has_HCam" array in the configuration file on the server, which can be found in the ArmA 3 folder "...\Arma 3\userconfig\cTab\ctab_settings.hpp". It needs to be within the class "cTab_settings" (same area as above).
class cTab_settings { cTab_helmetClass_has_HCam = {"H_HelmetB_light","H_Helmet_Kerry","H_HelmetSpecB","H_HelmetO_ocamo","BWA3_OpsCore_Fleck_Camera","BWA3_OpsCore_Schwarz_Camera","BWA3_OpsCore_Tropen_Camera"}; };
Note: This is a server-side setting, i.e. whatever is set on the client-side userconfig will be overridden by the userconfig on the server.

Override vehicle types that have FBCB2 or TAD available

If you wish to override the list of vehicles that have FBCB2 or TAD available, put this at the TOP of your "init.sqf":
// only make FBCB2 available to MRAPs, APCs and tanks cTab_vehicleClass_has_FBCB2 = ["MRAP_01_base_F","MRAP_02_base_F","MRAP_03_base_F","Wheeled_APC_F","Tank"]; // make TAD available to all helicopters and planes with the exception of the MH-9 Hummingbird and AH-9 Pawnee cTab_vehicleClass_has_TAD = ["Heli_Attack_01_base_F","Heli_Attack_02_base_F","Heli_Light_02_base_F","Heli_Transport_01_base_F","Heli_Transport_02_base_F","I_Heli_light_03_base_F","Plane"];

Override helmet classes with enabled helmet camera
// Only have BWmod helmets with a camera simulate a helmet camera cTab_helmetClass_has_HCam = ["BWA3_OpsCore_Schwarz_Camera","BWA3_OpsCore_Tropen_Camera"];

@rocky_g You can change the controls in the settings file of the addon, find "...\Arma 3\userconfig\cTab\ctab_settings.hpp" and edit it in notepad (its described above)

Trying to find cTab in Controls>Addons> but cTab is not in the list of addons. I re-downloaded the cTab mod but still no luck. I'm trying to change controls for "H" etc. to use it with ACE. Am I missing something?

so thank you
IceBadger  [author] Nov 20, 2021 @ 11:49am

To reduce the number of mods loaded while playing,I'm going to add your "CTab Blufor Tracker v2.2.3 ”.And upload to the creative workshop for our team members to subscribe to use, may I ask? Do you need any statements?

Hey, If you allow me, I'd like to publish an edited version of this mod. Do I need permission from anyone besides you to do that?

@Icebadger it was totally an error on my part, I had some other cTab knockoff which threw errors, now I have YOURS and it works great. Thank you :steamthumbsup:
