Apricot's MW NVG VFX 2.0.5

I had no longer updated this add-on, but an add-on for the same purpose has been published here.
It is strongly recommended to use this one from now on.

Fawks's Enhanced NVGs

The old description is included here just in case.

Version 2.0.5
This addon upgrades all NODs (NVGs) with white phosphor technology tubes that used in MODERN WARFARE.

"Apricot's MW NVG VFX" bring post-processes and overrides Arma3's Green Phosphor tinted NVGs.
Changing them to look like "MODERN WARFARE" White Phosphor NVG.


Recommended: Vestarr's BettIR for Brighter NVG like a MW!.

If you using ACE Nightvision require the enable checkbox "Using Color set for ACE Nightvision" for correct color.

You need change CBA setting if first use of this addon.

You can change phosphor tube in CBA setting listed under "Apricot's MW NVG VFX" with 3 types.
Green Phosphor (Default)
Green Phosphor is no different to Vanilla (Arma 3 Default).
It is classic and easy on the eyes.
Modern Warfare Phosphor
Modern Warfare is a modernised phosphor.
Used for Combat operation Duty (CoD) from 2019 onwards.
FL White Phosphor
FL White Phosphor is based on Fat_Lurch's WP.
It is generally used in the NewGen-NVGs.

See Youtube video that uploaded by BluFalconActual for explain.
(but it's for Alpha Version. I'll make new version of video soon™)

Client side loading works fine.
Server key is available.
Server whitelist is available.
Server / Mission override is available.

The mod has been tested in:
  • Single Player
  • Multi Player Host
  • Dedicated Server

Roger that! Its a gem dont you dare hide it xD
Apricot_ale  [author] May 18 @ 1:00am 
Because this mod is unlisted.
Only people who know the URL can reach this page.
It was set because I ended support for this mod and wanted to hide it.

Now I have set it back to public and should be able to add it.

Any idea why I can't add your item to my collection? It gives an error - unknown failure

Thank you for loving this mod.
I'm not familiar with his video settings.
But maybe he's going fullscreen and increasing the brightness or gamma in the video settings.
However, this is not recommended as it may look unnatural during the day or when the NVG is removed.
Or maybe he's adjusting the ACE NVG settings.
I don't know because I basically keep the default.
I'm using the Fawks one now but I still like the tint on my mod, same as you.
It's no longer supported, but you are free to continue using it or modify it (so as not to violate the license), so feel free to use it however you like.

I'm in love with your mod, btw Apricot. I'd use Fawks, I've tried it but its not my taste.. unfortunately (way too saturated and bright). I know you no longer work on this mod.. and I'm sorry for reviving an old ass comment section, but do you know how I can get the same effect as in the video in your mod description? Blurred and darkened all around a circular lense

@General Furry I know I'm late but you gotta remove Suppress MOD, it conflicts thats why you got that tint
