This mod overhauls thermal vision modes allowing them to be used in all conditions.

This mod CAN be used Client Side.

Press B while in Vanilla DTV mode to bring up A3TI thermal vision modes.
Press B while in Vanilla NVG mode to bring up A3TI Fusion mode.

Mission makers can disable A3TI vision modes by placing the following command in a vehicle's init

this setVariable ["A3TI_Disable, true"];

Current Features:

How To:

To use the Laser Target Marker (LTM), cycle to NVG or A3TI fusion mode, fire your laser, then press L
The LTM can only be seen in NVG or Fusion modes
You can change the LTM between Flashing and Steady modes with Ctrl+L
All controls are configurable via CBA keybinds

Known Issues:

Some Modded Tanks may have visual bugs for the driver. There is a CBA option to disable A3TI enhancements for tank drivers to mitigate this.

Please report any bugs to our Discord #bugs channel

Any chance we can get a minor fix that stops the thermals activating in Zeus when typing in the search bar?

Very minor request, but it's jarring literally every time. Cheers

Chinese machine translation: With all due respect, now the vanilla thermal imaging just like a piece of shit, so if you can, please develop the A3TI in individual mode.
